I have maybe an unusual condition! I've had this since I was
I have maybe an unusual condition! I've had this since I was young, my chest and neck area bother me badly, I feel like I want to just tear my skin off at night because it bothers me so badly! It is not a dermatology problem, I've had a biopsy done, they only determined that there was efasion of the skin due to my constant picking at the area. The doctors have given up on me, as the doctor who did help me retired! He gave me xanax, I've got through the withdrawals but have reverted back to the picking and no sleep! Please help me

I am a 69 year old male w/ diabetes. I had a 5 way by pass
I am a 69 year old male w/ diabetes. I had a 5 way by pass 10 years ago using an artery from my left arm. Since then I have had high systolic BP (currently 167/69 pulse 52). My Kaiser doctors have given me a lot of different drugs over the past 10 years but can't get the systolic BP under control. I walk briskly nearly every day for 30+ minutes or ride an exercise bike and watch my diet. The only drug that brought my BP down was a vasodialator but it made me so dizzy and drowsy I was unable to function. What would you suggest? Thank you.

Hallo,My father is 90 years old and has not used any chronic medicine up to now.He is physically active and still 100% cognitively functional.Eats well and use Vit C daily, Ecotrin daily and sometimes a Meticorten 5mg for pain in his back/arthritis in hands, etc.He has never handled medicine well and tends to get every side-effect on the package insert and this is not psychosomatic!Two weeks ago developed edema in lower legs and was hospitalized for tests the last 3 days. Heart function compromised and here is the script:- Spirilactone 25mg daily- Furosamide 20mg daily- Slow K 1 tablet dailyI am worried about the Sprilactone's side-effects and contra-indication with Potassium.Please kindly give me your opinion.
