Dec 7, 2016 · High blood sugar due to Coreg? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I was on Coreg for well over a year and I fell 11 times in one year. Also my memory was getting so bad that it was beginning to scare me. After having an EEG, catscan, etc. I was becoming so frustrated after seeing a variety of specialist and not getting an answer For what was causing my problem. They even put in a pacemaker. I began to fall less after that, but my memory was still getting worst. After reading an article about the problems of taking correg, I called my cardiologist to be told that I must continue to take it and she advised me to see another neurologist which I did and he could not find anything wrong with my head. To make a long story short I quite taking all the drugs I was taking for my blood pressure. Started taking my pressure each day to whatch it continue to go down to normal and in a short time I began having a much improved energy level and my memory has been improving daily. My neighbors and friends have even commented on it. It is amazing to me that three Cardiologist, 2 neurologist and 2 Electritions (Pass maker guys)
did not figure out what was going on. Forgot to mention my sugar level also went up. I am planning to have it checked again after the holidays.

Aug 12, 2016 · Falling for no apparent reason in Just Want to Talk

I suffered from falling, having fallen 10 times in one year. I finally took the advice of a friend and went to a trainer. The first thing he did was to take a video of me walking , on his cell phone. Showed it to me and said why are you always looking down? I think that alone is a major problem. Your body will always fall in the direction your head is looking. Also said particular mussels are weak. After 10 visits doing the exercises he had me do I am like a new person. Have not fallen since. I have decided to continue going to him once a week until I feel strong again. I am 80 years old.
