Customer Question
In just the...

In just the last few days, my feet and legs feel cold to me all the time. But when I touch them with my hands, they are warm. Could this be related to a problem I've had just recently with high blood pressure?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Yes, but the reason it was so high (enough to send me to the ER) was that I had forgotten to get a refill of Norvasc from Sept. 6 to Sept. 16. Foolish, I know, but I've been depressed lately and am not behaving very responsibly. I'm 81 and lost my husband 6 months ago.

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

I had two knee replacements a year ago, and they still don't work quite right, but nothing else I can think of.

i've taken it several times today and it has come down to normal.
No. No. No.
Yes I'm taking Lisinopril, hydrochlorathiazide, and Norvasc for BP, and Zoloft. Just today started Cymbalta, and have come of MS-Contin about 2 weeks ago, with the aid of Clonidine.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
