Re: Blood pressure medication causing hip pain?
It may be a new "problem" but I would be willing to bet it is from the meds. Many, many different bp meds cause muscle aches and pains, and some cause bone pain.
I most definitely experienced hip pain while on hydrochlorothiazide. The pain would be so bad that it would wake me in the middle of the night and I would have to take a pain reliever (which I have since learned can elevate one's pressures) in order to get back to sleep.
You needn't experience this pain on an hourly/weekly/or monthly basis...if it's a side effect it can come and go....and it can come out of the blue, even if you've been on meds a long, long time.
But best check your package insert info (the manufacturer's info) to see what it says about the side effects, and what to do about them. Then check with your doctor and your pharmacist. You'll probably get 3 different answers, but check anyway!
