I am trying to seek advice on what options i may have that possibly is being missed by the consultants i have been under.
i am a NHS patient -
i have been investigated for over 5 years
i have resistant hypertension
MY bp sails around 190/120
I have been under cardiologist with various tests including a angiogram
i have been under a endocrinologist eith vsiius tests
my aldosterone is very high but suppresses to 138
my cholesterol is high
my testosterone is low
i am physically fit
dont drink alcohol
41 years of age
serving frontline police officer
a vast amount of medication trialed over 5 years and all failing -
direction was taken in the direction of a tumour but cant find it and wont put me forward fir renal veign sampling.
awaiting now to see if i will get funding to see a Dr LOBO IN London who might be able to assist with a procedure but not known at this stage.
No consultant or gp knows what medication to try now - i have now refused to guinea pig anymore as they dont work and fed up with the side effects - at one point i was in 13 tablets a day.
oedema is getting worst as is the light headedness
finally the consultant has told me i have to be precautious now in not taking the meds as i will have a heart attack or stroke - but if i am lucky enough not to my organs will fail within ten years - but they dint work and the dsily side effects im not willing to out up with anymore
i have a lovely family and want to be around longer than 10 years but no one knows what to do so thought i might put it out here to see if anyone has any ideas ?
