Hi, I was put on ramapril 6 months ago, 10mg daily. About 3 months ago i started getting strange joint pains all over in my neck, elbows, wrists, fingers, knees and feet with a very strange burning numbing sensation in my toes and fingers. i went to the doctors and they give me some blood tests and said my glucose level was border line at 6.5 fasting and said that the joint pains could be due to this. I then had a glucose tolerance test and it came back normal...and 3 months down the line i have just had a blood test for rheumatism but that has come back negative ..it's strange that with all these joint pains i dont have any swelling or redness round the joints. I stopped taking ramapril 5 days ago and my joint pains have nearly gone ....but try telling my doctor that. He does not know i have stopped taking them, but i have proved a point to myself....my blood pressure has been sitting around 135/85....i know that because i have bought a monitor, a good one...and now i am thinking why am i taking ramapril in the 1st place. I must admit i do get very nervous when sitting in the doctors maybe thats why he put me on them....could be white coat syndrome. Sorry this email is so long...cheers paul
