Customer Question
I have had tiny...

I have had tiny electric short circuit feelings for infrequently for some years now, but recently they just do not seem to stop. I am 65 years old and was diagnosed with SLE in 2007. Prior to be diagnosed, I was treated for hypertension. I had suffered two clonic tonic seizures prior to being diagnosed with SLE. Seizures are infrequent. 2004; 2005;. Since I have been on seizure treatment I had one seizure in 2009 and another in 2016. I am on the following medication;

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

Sodium Valproate, Amlodipine, Methotrexate,atenolol and aspirin as well as prednisolone and Norspan patches for osteo arthiritis and severe pain. I saw my GP 4 weeks ago.

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

I can't think of anything else that I think could be related to blood pressure or SLE. My short term memory has deteriorated as well as my hearing which I imagine would be related to age.
