during my most recent physical (6 month follow up) I had the thigh muscle problem, and had an EKG, blood work complete physical in June 30 2008. Both at my June physical and the Dec 30th follow up, my vitals were fine and circulation fine etc and blood tests were all normal. I have lessened up on the Diovan since the dizziness.
The thigh muscle pain has lessened thru the aspirin dosages I guess...but my internist noted that my bp in Dec was 124/70. This is very low for me and he was happy about it, but we could not figure out the drop. Several days after the exam, was when I started to get the dizzy spells. I do not drink nor take party drugs...the bp I believe is involved in the dizziness. Today, an hour or so after I was up., I took ,my bp was l40/90. I still have not resumed my bp medicaation, but am increasing the potassium (20meq) to a tablet in the a.m. and tonight will take another at bedtime for the first time. If aspirin is not the culprit, could food (holidays feasts) be involved? I think I may be fixated on the dizziness, instead of just working on it slowly. After all, I am okay once I start walking around.
