There are several factors that may lead to muscle pain on hemodialysis including: a decrease of the body fluid volume, hypotension, changes in electrolyte-water balance, low sodium levels, inadequate oxygen, low serum magnesium, etc. Once a patient experience pain of muscle on dialysis treatment, he should contact the healthcare team member as early as possible and get help in alleviating this discomfort.


Some remedies can be useful for Stage 5 Kidney Failure and PKD patients to relieve muscle pain during hemodialysis. These measures include:

If muscle pain occurs during the treatment, it is important to assess the hypotension. Dialysis-related low blood pressure may be treated by slowing or stopping ultrafiltration or decreasing the blood flow rate.

The application of moist heat and local massage of the affected muscle may help relieve the symptom. Performing stretching exercises before hemodialysis is a preventive measure.

Short-term treatment with vitamin E is also a safe and effective therapy for people suffering muscle pain during dialysis. Kindly notice that speak to your doctor to confirm that there are no long term side effects from this remedy.
