Ramipril Fall Reviews

Fri, 17 Jun 2011
Ramipril Back Pain, Altace Back Pain. Wow! I am a physician and my doctor put me on Ramipril. At age 47, I expected aches and pains. But, gosh the pains in my back got worse. I have passed 7 kidney stones. Yikes, horrific pain !! Well over the last 3 years I woke up at 4 AM, with hand pain, joint pain, and a pain running from my cervical spine down to my lumbar spine. The pain was deep in the spine as though the pain was originating in the vertebral bodies. The pain was horrific at times. Needless to say I was in a severe accident that then lead to multiple medical problems and I developed hypertension. With the accident I had a broken neck, broken collar bone, broken shoulder, a small stoke about the size of a pea in the left frontal cortex of the brain etc… etc… Thus when I developed more back pain, well it all seemed to stem from the accident !!! Like I stated I was placed on RAMIPRIL for my high blood pressure. The back pain got worse over the course of 3 years. The pain was horrible. Tons of blood work was done and it was all-negative. I had MRI’s from my cervical spine to my lumbar spine, I went to see a rheumatologist, and several other doctors. Aleve, Mobic, Tylenol, Norco, etc… did NOT touch this pain. There were weekends that I just laid around the house. I never missed work, but gosh, if I were not in private practice and had sick days, there were days I would have taken some days off to stay at home. Thus the pain was so severe, I started to do a search on all the medications that I am on. Of course I am very familiar with the usual side effects of so so so many medications. But I had never really heard of Ramipril causing such significant back pain. Infact in the medical literature, back pain caused by Ramipril Falls far below the percentage level as compared to placebo !!!! But in my search I found multiple blogs / postings stating that RAMIPRIL caused BACK PAIN. Thus last week I discontinued the medication. I had some strange withdrawal type symptoms, which were compatible with restless leg syndrome, and then boom … in about 3 days my pain was gone. Wow !! Looking at the medical literature severe back pain must only occur in about 1 in 5000 people taking Ramipril. Very unusual but it is real !! This is my 10 bucks worth of information out there. Spoke to several of my M.D. friends and asked them about this. No one had ever heard of this. My neurologist never new of this, the rheumatologist never new of this. My pain management doctor never new of this. Now I do NOT need a pain management doctor !!!! Wow !! There were days where I came home from the office and just laid on the sofa until dinner. I am posting this to disseminate this information. The back pain from Ramipril is real. The back pain from Altace is real !!!
