I'm having upper back pain and muscle weakness and am incredibly short of breath. I'm a very active person but genetically predisposed to high blood pressure. Has anyone else experienced this? Will it get better? It seems to be worse each day.
Did the upper back pain and muscle weakness start when you started the medication, or did you have it before you started? High blood pressure meds have a tendency to make you dizzy until your body adjusts to them. If your blood pressure is high, you most definitely need to take it. Give it some time. It may take a few weeks to adjust.
