For the last three months, I have been on a slew of medications for HBP from Losartan to Lisinopril. When I started Lisinopril, everything started to go wrong, I started getting ringing in the ears, massive headaches, and dizziness from it.
For the last few weeks, I am no longer on Lisinopril and my doctor put me back on Losartan which I am glad is lowering my blood pressure.
Though I am still getting the dizziness and the ringing in the ears. My doctors all think its because of WPW (Wolff-Parkinson's White Syndrome) that is causing the issues. I have spoken to my cardiologist, and the only time dizziness is a factor with WPW is during an episode where the heart rate goes past 180. If the heart rate is at normal range dizziness is caused by something else.
My doctors are not taking me serious about the dizziness or the ringing in the ears and I don't know what to do anymore. I went to Urgent Care this evening and the PA agrees I might have BPPV and I should see a better ENT about it. I did see my ENT last month and he refused to treat it.
As mentioned this all started with Lisinopril. I don't know what to do, I've been to the ER 11 times, and they refuse to treat me. All they do is blood tests and then send me home.
