Went to doctors with breathing problems thought it was chest infection which I got every year in the autumn was diagnosed with copd lost my temper then told I had high blood pressure ,was placed on ramopril which I took for 2 years, my breathing deteriorated was taken to hospital on a number of occasions to be told it was the copd chronic pulmonary disease .Started getting swollen legs swollen face , glands and body,developed severe mouth ulcers and was unable to eat because of them .Started with internal bleeding and told had got stomach ulcers and a fistula which required operations. Severe depression. Lots of pain. Emergency readdmitted to hospital after 2 years on ramopril and being operated on , specialist conducted blood tests and lung capacity tests he said had not got copd and the original diagnosis was wrong and had masked the fact that I was allergic to the ramopril and this is what had caused the symptoms. Stopped taking the ramopril and started on losartine went into analphytic shock stopped everything.Now 2 years later still suffering still requiring more operations and still under treatment for the damage to the stomach and on going internal bleeding told could be an induced form of Crohn s disease but doctors afraid to confirm for fear of litigation.
Have talked to other people on ramopril and told they also developed the ulcers, my mother was on ramopril and had been for some time, she developed the mouth ulcers and stomach problems she died in hospital unable to eat or drink unable to talk for the ulcers,the diagnosis was dementia which ment they wouldn't peg feed her ,she had been addmitted with a mild stroke .Has anybody else had these severe reactions ? Sorry this reads like a book but hope it might prevent anybody else going through what I have.
