Hi everyone,it is my first post on this platform which I find more fulfilling,informative and satisfying than my local imcompetent gp's and arragont consultants.I'd like to state my gratitude to those who set up and run and contribute to this platform.
I am 55, quite fit regular doing morning exercise and jogging or walking with very low blood pressure no any health problems but below;
I had a stent put onto LAD in 2012 and since then I have been on medication as below;clopidogrel for first year,ramipril 1.25gr,asprin 75mg,atorvastatin 80mg for roughly 2 years then requested for a lower dosage of 10mg (as had severe cramps in the hand and some muscles for example if I had made a fist my fist would have frozen and my hand muscles locked in fist and couldn't release my hand back into its nature position.),bisoprolol 1.25gr
Recently I had severe alerjik reaction my lips got swallen, and rashes in raised lumps.
I went to 3 times to urgent care unit at guys hospital each time gp's there said there was nothing serious about it and I should take antistatic or something and it was nothing to do with the medication I take. As it got worst in the night at 1am I went to A&E where I was checked for a possible 2nd heart attack,it turned out to be good news and told that it could be ramipril.
I then stopped ramipril and everything got back to normal.
I then saw my gp and she said I need to take ramipril or similar ones to support my heart muscles.Candesartan prescribed.it took me only one tabet from it to see my lips get swallen again.Then I stopped again. And back to normal again.
My gp then suggested I should stop Candesartan for 2 weeks and asprin for the 3rd week to see the culprit medication.
I wonder if anyone is having similar problem and if I remain alerjik to both ramipril and Candesartan how can I support my heart muscles without taking any medications.
Your replies would be very much appreciated.Thanks.
