    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    very recently my hearing in only my right ear has drastically diminished, with the feeling of something blocking either the inner ear or canal, which dr cannot see anything upon exam, along with redness, irritation, blurriness, and pain in only right eye, but the eye only lasts for 1 day and goes away and returns in approx 1 week. Also, rash on neck, scalp line, head, and now chin
    I also have high BP 160/120 for which ive been on meds, lisinopril 10mg BID
    The only thing that I have had recently is epidural injections for back surgery gone wrong
    I am not overweight, jog daily and eat healthy!
    PLEASE any input is appreciated as every ENT has a 1 month wait

    I have no ideas about your ear/eye problem.

    But if your BP is at 160/120 after being on 10 mg BID lisinopril you need to talk to your doctor about increase/changing/adding another BP med.
