I have been taking Ramipril 10mg for a few months now.
I went from 5mg to 7.5mg to 10mg it has been whilst I have been on this higher dose that my arm joint to my shoulder have started to hurt, with sometimes sharp pain, also a sharp pain in the base of my index finger but again very occasionly.
I worry that if I go and talk to my doctor he may try and treat the joint pain with yet another drug which itself might have side effects, and the spiral then goes on into old age.
I am only 51 and will continue to take the medication but will monitor my problems and eventually have a chat with my GP.
If anyone else has had joint pain I'd be interested in their stories.
