I have been taking BP meds for many years and struggled to get to a good level, I am a 45 yr old male, 18st. I recenlty had a 'hypertensive crisis' and my BP was 260/165 on admission to hospital.
Subsequent tests revealed.
An aneurysm in ascending aorta 4.5cm
Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
Diabetes Type 2
I am feeling really lousy, and was wondering what the thoughts were on the amount of meds I am taking, and am I reaching saturation point? I feel dizzy, joint pain, back pain, a general feeling of weakness. The GP wants to get ny lower BP to around 70 on average due to the aneurysm. It has stabilised somewhat, and home readings are only averaging around 89. I have asthma, so cannot take Beta Blockers.
I'd be grateful for opinions on following meds I take, and the amount and combination - will I start feeling any better?
Thanks guys (new to the forum)
