I was diagnosed with essential hypertension long time ago, I guess I was so young maybe 14 or so. But I'm not following up with any dr at the moment, they don't know much over here! Like one dr who insisted that Cozaar has no side effects and it was all "in my head". But Cozaar has nasty effects on my body
, so they just don't listen man!!!
Yes Jesus I was evaluated with MANY cardiologists, many have PhD from the US, Germany and the UK yet they couldn't find anything other than trivial metral valve imcompetance. They said it has nothing to do with my symptoms, I had many blood work and most of it came normal except my TSH which is 3.54 but it's still normal though!
Have you ever been tested for Vitamin D deficiency?
No we don't have the accurate blood test in Egypt, the other one we have is not the accurate and way too expensive ($125). I don't see the sunshine AT ALL, beacuse it hurts my eyes and even if I do all my body is not exposed to the sun because of the clothes. I'm not near the beach at all, I'm about 128 km away from it.
The joint pain I have is due o injuries so I don't think it's related to vit. D. But I know I might be Vit D deficient, I take around 5,000 to 7,000 IU a day (start 2 weeks ago).
I took a duiretic few hours ago but it caused a sensetivity to light, my bp is 145/95 right now
