Hi everyone Thank you for being here. I was diagnosed with AF about 2 months ago and have been doing very well. Only had one short occurrence since then. Unfortunately I don't have any insurance and must go to a clinic where an Internal Medicine doctor over sees my care. She has 'played" around with my meds for high blood pressure, thyroid, diabetes, cholesterol, mainly trying to keep everything low. I was on Benazapril but she took me off of that because my potassium was a little low so now I have Norvasc. The problem is my ankles are swelling up like balloons and she refuses to even address this. Also my shins (front of lower legs) has turned bright red with rash. I think I should come off the Norvasc. Please, any help???? I am on coumiden, still trying to get the levels right, mostly they are too high.
