I have permanent A/F and have not had back pain until I was diagnosed with A/F 5/6 years ago. I'm overweight,more sedentary since I was put on bisoprolol and rampril. I'm off the beta blocker now but still have awful backache when I stand to do anything. I feel ok when I walk and keep moving. Is my posture...I'm overweight or another side effect of the meds?

Most people who are overweight have all kinds of joint problems; the skeleton was not designed to carry excess weight and with time the joints start to compress and the result is pain. That your back pain started with the afib episodes was, in my opinion, coincidental.
That said, afib also could be the result of faulty cardiac blumbing that results from being overweight.
You are in an exceptionally tough situation, but the best way to try to remedy it would be to start to lose weight and keep it off for good. Very tough situation, but I do not think you could fix the other issues without attacking the weight issue first.
Do you take statins?
Prior to the atenlol I was on bisop but had bad side effects so my GP changed my meds to atenolol. Same prob though...bad side effects.
I was diagnosed with PAF a year ago and put on Bisoporol and eventually warfarin, I also experience backache since I started the meds, but am as skinny as a rake so although I agree with the others that weight is a factor, it isn;t in my case.
since i have stopped theses 2 drugs i dont get very little back ache or pain, i also feel much fitter & not as tired as before when on the drugs mentioned above.
I've read an article...think it was daily telegraph...that attributes lots of side effects..including backache with meds!
Neither my GP or the cardio, thought it was due to meds! Very dismissive. Keep taking the tablets!
I would like to know if A/F causes the backache. Fed up trying to find the answer!
Thanks for your post.
Riveroxiban is the same as Apixaban
