Brief Answer:
youe doctor is right

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Your doctor is very right. The conversyl AKA perindopril and atenolol are both responsible for the dizziness and pressure in the head most likely a migraine headache.
Also you using potassium supplements with a diuretic is worth keeping eye on as perindopril itself can cause increase potassium levels.keep an eye in your electrolyte panel.
Now you can either be readjusted and reshuffled with the dosages or if the issue persists the change of medications can be considered.your doctor is cent percent right about the etiology of your symptoms.i agree.
Pay him and visit and let him decide what is best for you.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

doctor1 MD

I am a 34 year old female, with episodes of chronic migraine headaches which present themselves with an onset of what seems to be an epileptic seizure in my abdominals. The stomach involuntarily contracts for a period of 30 to 45 seconds, subsides for a few minutes, and then occurs again until vomiting results. The following day or two I have symptoms of a migraine headaches, vomiting for 12 ro 24 hours, followed by nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and in one instance I had an episode where I could not speak or write. My doctor thinks I have abnormal migraines, however, the symptoms occur three days prior to my menses- and when I am under a great deal of stress. I have been experiencing these abdominal migraines or abdominal epileptic seizures- which ever they are called- for a period of 23 years approximately every cycle. They get worse if I eat dairy, yellow cheese, meat, wheat, sugar, onions, and too much chocolate, or smell chemicals, diesel fuel, or bleach. I have received an endoscopy which came back normal, I was tested for Celiacs disease, and that came back normal. I feel frustrated because I cannot get a definitive answer about this condition. I just want an answer about this condition which with my current insurance, I cannot get the tests necessary to diagnose whatever I have. I would be happy to volunteer for a medical study for Abdominal Epilepsy or Migraines if it could lead to a diagnosis. I think this could help me to lead a more normal life, and possibly treatment for this condition. What is your advice for me, considering this has effected every aspect of my life, family, career and health.

Good am, I am a person who was hit in the head with a piece of luggage in 2002. This accident caused mr mild traumatic brain injury, 3 ruptured discs in my cervical and 2 ruptured discs in my lumbar, migraine headaches, numbness and tingling, and pain level above 8 from that time period to September 2013. I had utilized all of the conventional and medicine services that I could including I was able to have surgery but on the day of surgery my Dr. Had a heart attack. I never went back and continued suffering as a chronic pain patient all these years and my pain never dropped below an 8 with medications or over the counter treatment. As of September 2013, After attending a class and taking a metro for 2 hours and walking. 4 blocks, sitting for 8 hours for 3 days my pain level begin increasing, migraine headaches, fire in my thighs,numbness and tingling. I tried to get up on Monday am for work and was not able to climb out of bed. I ended up staying out of work for 2 weeks and went back for 4 days and was unable to return again the following Monday. I was rushed to the hospital because I fell as I tried to get up. I ended in the hospital for one week and was diagnosed with the above issues but now have shakes and tremors, knees and calves are painful, fingers and hands throb, inconvenience, constipation and weakness which started in the hospital along with now diagnosis of degenerative disease and spinal stenosis including a sore hip from a fall. My pain is above a 10 all over my body, but per my MRI my cervical discs are the worse. I am getting mixed diagnosis need surgery , not going to do surgery, 50 50 chance, simple surgery I am going to cut you, do not need to discuss everything else as well as Dr I have seen have not been on the same page or cared about all of the issues I am having. I have read ADR and fusions I am not sure what Dr. or what I should do. Lost quality of life and confused and in chronic pain all these years. I want the right Dr. And the best services that are not rude, condescending, or short with what is happening with me.

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis about 7 months ago. Despite fixing some period problems I was having and finally having an explanation for my thyroid problems, I'm still tired all the time, have bouts of insomnia, mood swings, migraine headaches, extreme brain fog and forgetfulness, acne, and muscle pain and spasms. I was first made aware of my thyroid issues at 16 years old, I'm now 22. I've been treated for iron definency anemia since age 11 and am currently on 45 mg of iron a day. I was diagnosed with a mitral valve prolapse which disappeared after getting treatment for the thyroid. My questions are... I've heard that since Hashimoto's is an auto-immune problem that other diseases can be assoiciated with it, what do I need to be tested for, if any thing? What type of things can I do to lose weight?
