Question: clarkson's disease..how can it be treated? some two years ago I was erroneously prescribed BP pills. This is when I began to fall over as my blood pressure plumeted. I didn't make the connection but 6 months later was advised to stop taking the pills. These early falls were not of a serious nature. I would fall onto my knees or bottom, but I didn't used to become unconsious. Experienced some difficulty getting to my feet but always managed it. I have, and always had, a pathetic appetite, never hungry and have difficulty forcing food down. So .tried to eat more sensibly. I was terrified of falling out of doors, so not having any exercise could't engender any appetite. A vicious circle. Was also sleeping a lot
