Epsom salt: Unless you're drinking the epsom salt, i simply don't see how a bath (ie, topical) epsom salt could possibly interact with Lisinopril which is in your blood stream.

Im only 19 but im having so much pain- back, shoulder, chest, leg cramps, neck, abdominal pain- is that normal for someone my age?

Quite unusual: If your symptoms came on spontaneously without vigorous use of your muscles such as with yard work or exercise, then such pain is unusual for someone of your age. Should it persist, see your doctor. ...Read more
