Lasix (furosemide): If you diurese from Lasix (furosemide) and wash out potassium, calcium and magnesium; you could get severe cramps causing pains as you describe.

Muscle cramps: Overly aggressive use of Lasix (furosemide) can lead to muscle cramps (like a "charley-horse"). Is that what you're describing? If so, ask your doc about reducing the dose.
