ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the case of a twenty-two-year-old male who experienced acute thigh and leg cramping after taking creatine monohydrate as a nutritional supplement. The development of the symptoms happened over a two-week period while he was performing high-repetition, free-weight lower extremity exercise. The man's physical examination was performed following the transfer demonstrated tense thighs and legs. Neurological examination of the man revealed normal findings. A summary of the laboratory data is presented.
