Drug has caused major back pain. I did not realize this was my problem until I ran out of pills on vacation for 10 days. After three years my back pain was gone. I tested the drug by taking it again for 3 days. After 2 days my pain was back and by day 3 I could not tie my shoes. I am 38 year male. Excellent condition - 5'10" 179 pounds. Lift Wts and run a minimum of 3 miles a day. ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have had some swelling on my knees after using Diovan and my knees started making a cracking noise with no pain. I've seen articles suggesting that Diovan causes changes in pressure in the fluid within the joint, the nitrogen gas comes out of the solution with a "crack". Any ideas or articles on same would be greatly appreciated as my Dr doesn't have a clue!
