It is highly unlikely that Lisinopril caused your cancer. You say you also take Atenolol. Both of these medications affect potassium levels in the blood. Altered potassium can cause muscle pain and cramping. The cancer also causes pain. If you are in remission make an appt ASAP. I pray for your recovery. Drink plenty of fluids, eat a mostly raw diet, and do all you can to stay well. Good luck.

Yesterday I ask my pharmacy to print me a copy of all the medicine i have taken and he is kind enough to print me from 2005 to present 2011. I have seen that I have been on lisinopryl since or maybe as early as 2005 to 2009. On 2008 I have been diagnose with Uterus cancer so i have an extensive Hysterectomy. By the way all symptoms that I have at the time I am taking lisinopryl is the pain on my hips which I cannot walk much and sit much and stand much. I have always infections which wont go away. after the hysterectomy, the hips pains go away and the infections go away too. After that I change Doctor and he gave me a different HB pills. Now one week ago I started feeling the pain again after the Doctor change my medication So I started digging on what mediation I am taking that resulted of me having a cancer on the uterus and this lisinopryl is the culprit. lisinopryl. at that time I am also taking Atenolol 100 mg.
From this study (3 months ago):
Severe chest pain with exertion and sometimes without. Nausea, bloating, burping gas, and extreme salivation. Last less than five minutes if I rest. Some days I can walk several miles, others I cannot make a short walk to the mailbox at the end of our lane. This keeps me from accepting work.

Over the past year, I have lost substantial muscle tone. Strength remains ok but significant change is hardness of muscles though my diet and workout routine remain the same. I stopped finasteride and continue to loss muscle tone. Have had blood work and other tests all negative. Any suggestions
william mcniff on Nov, 20, 2012:
No one lost muscle tissue/weight during or after the BMT????Really??? I lost 75lbs during and after my BMT. 205 to 130lbs. I have no muscle mass at all.
It has been over 4 years since my transplant and I still cannot rebuild the lost muscle. This is with
testosterone shots weight training BCAA Whey protein
creatine etc etc etc.
I find it hard to believe muscle wasting did not occur with other patients.

I used Lopid 300 mg once a day for about 3 to 3.5 months. My blood sugar levels rose...
I stopped Lopid.
Lopid also caused pain in the lower ribs, just above the stomach apart from muscle weakness.
I stopped the drug and awaiting for improvement.
From this study (7 months ago):
Severe body aches and fatigue - unable to excersize anymore (was running 5 miles, 3-5 times a week).
From this study (10 months ago):
I began 10 mg of Lisinopril last Thursday and my blood pressure was normal by Friday. By Monday, I was beginning to experience side effects such as dizziness and headaches. On Wed, I had so much pressure and pain in my chest I thought I was having a heart attack. I went to the ER and was examined. After all of my tests came back clear, I was released and told to continue the Lisinopril. They told me that chest pains were not a side effect of this drug and thought I may be having a panic attack. I have never had that pain before. It was also accompanied by clammy sweaty palms for which there was no explanation. I do not plan on continuing this medication, despite the doctors instructions. I think he is wrong, and these statistics prove it.
