I'm sort of between a rock and a hard place right now. My family doctor put me on heart pressure meds a diuretic. No problem my blood pressure was not through the roof but high enough for him to be concerned.
Everything was fine for a couple of months until my blood pressure began to fall to, at least in my estimation, much too low. I was becoming close to fainting no matter how slowly I stood from a chair. On at least two occasions I nearly blacked out.
Four days ago I decided to quit the meds. I feel better and my blood pressure has returned to nearly normal but, and this is a bit but, I've been gaining one pound a day for the last four days
Have to go see my PCP tomorrow to see what we can do.
Meanwhile it might be of some help to get some ideas from this group.
