I also mentioned that I have had some pretty severe lower back pain for the past few months (progressively getting worse). I have no idea if this has anything to do with it, but I guess it doesn't hurt to mention.
Kidney problems can cause back pains. But I have ABSOLUTELY and idea if the types of kidney problems that can cause back pain are the types that will affect BP.
But in any case, as you describe them, the pains are enough of a symptom that they should be looked at on their own.View Thread
