I lost my medical in July last year. I still take lisinipril…

Customer Question
Hi. I lost...

Hi. I lost my medical in July last year. I still take lisinipril 40. I left the hospital in Aug after my leg was affected and my blood pressure rose 205/110. I had insurance then and was rushed back to ER. Due to stress my blood pressure is 190/87.. sometimes higher. Thanks

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

My right leg is always swollen since I went to hospital last year. Y knee opened up and leg turned red like shingles I worked in nursing home at time

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm diabetic
