Can anyone advise on how to deal with persistent dizziness/vertigo?
My father (who's in his 80s) has had high blood pressure for years but it's been well controlled til 6 months ago when he had a 'crisis' and ended up in hospital (hypertensive encephalopathy).
Since then he's been prescribed Clopidogrel, Amlodaphine and Lisinopril and getting persistent dizziness/vertigo and brain fog. The GPs recently advised stopping the Amolodapine and Lisinopril and replacing them with Ramipril, which helped the brain fog but caused a reoccurance of a bullous pemphigoid rash, so he's now swapped onto Losartan.
However, the persistent dizziness/vertigo isn't shifting and is affecting his mobility and independence (hasn't left the house since Oct).
Has anyone else had a similar issue? Any tips on what worked for you or what follow-up diagnostics or referrals to request from the GP?
