Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being on
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

Though Ramipril commonly cause vertigo.But,you have to correlate it temporally with your symptoms.Is it that after starting ramipril,your vertigo increased or there is no relation between vertigo and ramipril?
If there is no temporal relation between the two,there is no indication to change the BP medicine.
Red wine may be beneficial in some aspects and harmful in others.Chronic use can damage Liver.
More amount may actually damage heart also.
Still,if you have good control over it,a glass of red wine a day has been shown to be beneficial in some studies.So,you can keep going for it.I suggest,however,to get yourself screened for Liver and Heart function.

Hope that I have answered your query.If you have some further questions,I shall be glad to answer else please close the thread,rate it and write a review as your rating will be of help to me.

i have burning cramps in my feet which prevents me walking. I get shooting pains in my arms and sudden swelling with red blotchy skin of my hands that comes and goes. I feel tired and run down and often find I can t continue after mid/late afternoon so I have to rest. My memory is shockingly bad and I m female age 45. My Iron levels are usually in the high range of normal and a few weeks ago it was alarmingly high but has returned to my normal . There were some liver enzymes detected in my last 2 blood tests and I am waiting for an ultra sound scan of my liver.

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

I had blood tests done aswell as a 24 hour holter moniter test, im yet to recieve relsults on the holter moniter though my blood tests indicate that my liver enzymes are at 3.0 due to fatty cells is there anyway that high liver enzymes cause heart problems and if so what would i expect once all tests are in?
