I never had high blood pressure. I have white coat syndrome! The doctor said I have high blood pressure. He put me on lisinopril and I coughed my brains out. He switched me and no more coughing. I went back for annual checkup and he upped my medication, now I have all kinds of issues; I am dizzy, I have lost my balance, have very weak muscles, and am tired. I am wondering if this blood pressure medicine could be causing this!
