After experiencing a severe reaction to the blood pressure medication prescribed I explained the effects that I had experienced including not being able to stand up due to extreme Vertigo also Nausua, Vomitting, Back Pain, Systemic Muscle Cramps(Face, Head, Neck,Abdomen,Legs,Feet), Pain in my hands,feet,fingers and toes, Insomnia etc... At which time he told me that I was mistaken and since those side effects were not listed, it could not be what I experienced at all. The side effects I had described in no way came form the Norvasc nor Bystolic. He was angry that I had discontinued the medications and then told me I was a moron as only a moron would not listen to him and discontinue the meds he had prescrbed and as they were prescribed. He also stated that "a Systolic Blood Pressure of 70 is completely normal.(He did not stutter and in fact repeated the same over and over including three more times for good measure as he followed me down the hall as I proceeded to the nurse station to check out of the office. At that time I asked him if would write two new prescriptions for lower dosages of Bystolic and Norvasc which he reluctantly did write for me,(Remember this was after he adamantly wanted me to continue the same dosages which had caused the Severe Side effects during my office visit with him.
3 Days later the identical side effects reappeared.(The ones that he passionately arqued did not exist and that I could not have experienced) He told me that I was ignorant when I had described the severe dizziness as Vertigo in that vertigo is only caused by the middle ear and that since it was not listed as a side effect of norvasc or Bystolic that I was wrong. However, when I accessed the web, Dr Chen Y. Tung WAS INDEED WRONG. Not Only was vertigo listed but also all of the other side effects I had complained about. When I looked up vertigo it was just as I had remembered it was defined and the middle ear is only one of the known causes for vertigo In addition to the causes of vertigo attributed to the function of the Ear Vertigo is defined as a central nervous system disorder. Brain stem, Brain, migrane as well as peripheral neuropathy among others are listed as causes of vertiggo and and indeed the Mayo clinic uses Vertigo and dizziness interchangeably and interpret vertigo as Dizziness. I find it astonishing that a cardiologist would not have even a laymans understanding about vertigo since dizziness is a very common side effect of low blood pressure(hypotension) and as a cardiologist a large percentage of the medications he prescibes for both "hypo" and "hyper"tension have dizziness, severe dizziness and vertigo as known and possibly severe side effects of the medications. If this is the result of "practicing for 19 years as a Cardiologist", I think it would be more appropriate to refer to his history as "practicing for 19 years as a part time hobbyist". If you can not get the simple basics down after 19 years you should consider it a hobby.
