Another thing to consider: Statin cholesterol drugs, such as Lipitor.
old people sometimes tend toward higher cholesterol, so their docs put them on statins.
Mine did and within two weeks I started having calf issues, particularly when increasing run distance and/or intensity. It took us two years to figure it out.
Short story - research indicates statins aren't good for muscles especially those of runners.
Since getting off statins over two years ago I've had no calf problems.
