Is dad's back pain from heart failure medication?
Since my dad started taking heart failure medication, he's been complaining of back pain. His lower back hurts all the time, and his upper back hurts if he exerts himself even the slightest bit. He suspects the back pain might be linked to the diuretic he's taking. Is it possible that his back pain is from heart failure medication?
We've never seen back pain due to a diuretic, so it's unlikely that your father's pain is linked to that medication. Patients often attribute new symptoms to their medications, but there are actually many causes for back pain, some of which can be serious. Your father needs to be evaluated by his doctor.
