Hi Cathiet,
Thanks for your quick reply!
Sorry to hear you're on even more drugs - I hate taking the stuff!
Personally, I don't have a problem with drugs that actually do more good than harm, it's just that I feel that my health has been severely damaged by the drugs I've been taking for the past 18 months, and I'm really worried that the damage will end up being permanent.
My hypertension is complicated by my ridiculous sensitivity to a lot of meds, a situation that's arisen since I developed M.E..
Even light exercise is impossible since I've been on the BP drugs - can't stand for more than a couple of minutes and can barely walk at all. Diet is a minefield too because of food intolerance type reactions to things.
The main problem is having a diagnosis of M.E. - most doctors still think it's a psychological illness so are very dismissive of problems!

I've started cutting back on my meds myself and am going to try and find an acupuncturist instead - have just about given up on Western medicine... great if you've got a broken leg, rubbish at anything less obvious (as you can probably detect, I'm in a really foul mood!).

Good luck with your situation.
