It's very quiet on this forum....anyone there?
Hello...anyone there?: It's very quiet... - High Blood Pressu...
Yes I do.I was diagnosed out of the blue last March after I went to A&E with a racing heart for three days.Reading was 244/133 so I was given an emergency drip of gtn and kept in for five days.I'm now on 5mg of ramipril and amlodipine.I have some mild thickening of the left ventricle as a result (lvh) but bp meds working well.How about you?
I've never had one of those, but I believe they are quite common. Perhaps you could ring the Blood Pressure UK helpline on 020 7882 6218. or email at email@example.com

I am here. I have mild High Blood Pressure that was under control 120/60 ish with Losartan 50 MG and HCTZ 12.5 MG. I went for a physical in Dec and some of my blood test number were a little off and they seemed to be the ones that had to do with the kidneys (BUN, eGFR, HGB, MCHC, BASO%. I called my cardiologist and she and my PCP said my test looked fine. I was still worried so my cardiologist said it was OK to stop the HCTZ as I thought this effected my kidneys. I did not take into account that the Losartan effects the kidneys also. After stopping the HCTZ I was really light headed and short of breath. A month and a half went by and I am back on the HCTZ and I believe I feel a little better. My weight went down a little in this time (purposely). my BP during the time I was off the HCTZ went up to 130-140/70-75.
Anyone have this problem?
Thank you, TomS
