Suffer from upper back ache, diarrhea and pain in the rib cage. On BP medication. Cause?

Hi. I am a 52 yr old male. I have had diarrhea and mild to severe back ache situated just below my shoulder blades. Sometimes I also have pain at the front of my rib cage right under the breast bone. I am on blood pressure medication (Micardis). I have experienced this for 5 days. Any suggestions as to the cause or what to do.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the upper back and the rib cage could be related to the viral diarrhea that you are having. Most of the times these are related to the weakness and are self limiting symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
