Just back from the eye doctor – Glaucoma seems to be under control – pressure down and test show only a little damage – will test again in March to make sure. Azopt drops are working and do not upset the BP.
By the way, BP now running about 125-130 – switched back to Olmersartan for 3 days now and the pain in the hips, knees and legs has really gone down. Apparently it was the Valsartan that was causing it – that is what the literature says Valsartan can do but the doctor thought not, but I was sure that it was -however, cannot really tell in just 3 days – it takes at least 2 weeks for the BP to stabilize with the Sartans so have to wait to really make sure it is working. Hoping it is working as the pain I was having before changing made it so I couldn’t walk for any distance let alone exercise – so now I think I just have to build up muscles again – their sore but the pain is gone.
Everything else seems OK — or at least stable and without the high anxiety I had before – I can drive without getting overly excited – that’s a good indicator. I can enjoy my trips and life again.
