head pounding & salt craving

I am taking Hyzaar. I am experiencing lots of heart pounding in my head (blocks my hearing during the "thump"). Leg & arm cramping and salt craving. I have never been a salt craver. It seems I am having an electrolyte imbalance to me. I have increased the potassium rich foods. Told the PA about it and that is all she said to do, but it is still happening. Maybe I should try a cardiologist?<p>[This message has been edited by karenortwein (edited 11-11-2001).]

If it were me I'd ask to be given an alternative medication. There are alternatives and there's not reason for you to have to put up with those symptoms. Good luck.

Re: head pounding & salt craving

I have already tried several different kinds. The ACEs made me cough like I would hack up a lung. This is the first one that really does lower my BP. This ring around the rosie is exhausting!!! Does anyone else experience these symptoms out there??
