Muscle involvement in long term allopurinol use

I have been on allopurinol 400 mg/ day for about 2 years. In the last few months I have had SEVERE weakness in my thigh muscles and discomfort there as well.

I don’t know if it is related to allopurinol or not.

I am 71, I do drink a few beers a week (4 or 5). Otherwise reasonably healthy, but I do have daily headaches.

What do you think ?
