Discussions that mention potassium

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hey all,

For the past few weeks, I have had days where my ankles and feet have become really swollen. I am on CCB and a low ARB for SVTs and high blood pressure. I also take Perscription Potassium.
I don't think it is adema, because it doesn't pit. I am seeing my GP next week and will mention it to him, but don't want to be placed back on HCTZ. I was on it before and was dizzy quite often while on it. After a couple of trips to the ER with diagnosis of dehydration...don't want to go back on it.
Does it sound like adema? It also was really bad when I stood up for 3 hours at a concert out in the heat.

Thanks,
Lyl
