    I have had hypertension for 15 years.I have been hospitalized in ICU twice for this. I am on Metoprolol 100mg, amlodipine10mg, Asprin80mg, Lisinipril40mg. I also have prediabetes. However my blood pressure just wont seem to go down. The lowest it has been is 150/98. I am misearble. For the past month I've had this cramp in my left leg that starte in my calf themn traveled to my thigh and now its traveled up to my side. I'm exhausted, I urintae often, I have a nasty taste in my mouth, and I am both thirsty and hungry all the time. However today I'm extremely light headed but have no appetite. Ive taken my medicine but still not feeling any better. The other strange thing is my left leg is swollen and so are my feet and face. I also keep coughing ughh I am a 39 year old mother of four boys. Coud something be seriously wrong with me?

    Something could be seriously wrong with you if you have kidney disease. I do. I'm an 84 year old grandma. I was diagnosed this past September. The main causes of chronic kidney disease, CKF, are diabetes and high blood pressure. Cramps and frequent urination, and a metallic taste are some of the symptoms. Your primary care doctor can order a simple blood test to tell whether you have CKF. If you do, you may want to get a referral to a kidney specialist, a nephrologist. The major treatment is following a special kidney diet. I have not found it difficult to do. I wish you well in your search for a response to your question.
