Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum may affect cardiovascular and gastrointestinal system.
It also predisposes for early atherosclerosis.
Affection of cardiovascular system with low brain perfusion & atherosclerosis in carotid arteries may cause decreased brain blood supply and may cause your defined symptoms.
As such ramipril is not associated with defined symptoms and decreased blood pressure may cause your defined symptoms.
Let me know the timing of ramipril intake.
As such there is no correlation between hysterectomy and defined symptoms.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for 2 D echo, electrocardiography and CT/ MRI imaging studies of brain.
You should take proper nutrition.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi,
You should keep watch on your blood pressure after taking ramipril in the coming days.
Any type of blood pressure variations may be judged by close scrutiny.
