I am sorry no one has answered your question in so long. I wasn't familar with this drug so looked it up. I assume you have some type of leukemia is that right? It seems you may not have a choice than to take this drug, & it does as most have some side effects. That's not to say you will have them all, and back pain in general is not listed. Arthralgia is, & could be what they mean. Join pain & so on. I am sending you a link with the tables for gleevec vs. placebo I wish you the best, & welcome to the site...
