this is a hard core drug that corrects arrhythmia etc. enabling pt. to return to a normal sinus rhythm. you must have constant lab work and stay hydrated, unless you are on fluid restrictions. This drug is not commonly prescribed in my area, unless by an electrophysiologist and only in difficult cases. You may know this already, sorry if i am preaching. It can cause back pain, face pain, arthralgia,flu-like symptoms,edema, anxiety(less often agression), insomnia, headache and cardiac issues etc. It is hard on the kidneys in the long run and it is incompatable with many drugs and some herbs as well. My father takes it for a-fib. after a MAZE procedure. He is very tired, mentally foggy and has new back pain. He is a very tense man and this makes it worse. I am sorry i cannot specs. on connective tissue, but it is very possibly yes1 Joint aches are listed.Extended release causes fewer side effects in most. My dad has been on it 4 to 5 mo. His side effects have lessened. It can cause muscle aches as well. If you are like him, you gotta take it! I hope this helped a little. Sorry, i can be too long winded.Take care!
