Hi, I have been taking Lisinopril for high blood pressure for 10 years. Immediately on beginning I noticed that if I was too active my legs would hurt me very much after. I talked to each of my doctors about this and not one checked my circulation. I started taking the pill at night which helped a bit because the dose hit me hardest when I wasn't active. Recently my activity tolerance has decreased dramatically and this time I pushed on the circulation issue and was tested to discover I was right. (Sadly.) The timing might be coincidental but I never had any problem with activity caused leg pain before beginning Lisinopril. I told my doctor venous insufficiency was a known side effect of Lisinopril, and she responded that it was rare, as if that meant it couldn't possibly be true for me. She suggests trying a newer generation of Lisinopril. Does any one else have a similar story?
