Unfortunately because I've started several things I can't tell which, but something has made a significant difference in the last 24 hours (apart from lovely responses from MN of cousre :-)1 - Doctor gave me betablockers - I know in the UK Methyldopa is most common, but apparently BBs are faster to act and shorter half life/don't make you feel so rubbish.2 - chinese medicine - mistletoe, peony, zizyphus. Disgusting but maybe worth it?3 - Magnesium supplements.I'm sure my water retention is less, and my bp has dropped a definite 10+ points each side - so from 140/150 over 90/100 to 135/80. Just thought I'd write ti down in case someone can use the info.
PS my levels didn't ever come down with Methyldopa, btw, just didn't go up anymore..and doctor still thought BBs would take 2-3 days to work.. so am wondering if it's one of the alternative things.
