Hello and thanks for using HCM.

Blood pressure is increased by pain and by Naproxen also.

In my opinion, you should use Diovan at evening too, at least as long as naproxen duration use.

Another possibility of controlling the pain and avoiding high blood pressure as a side effect of drugs is the...

I'm a 48 year old white male, around 205 pounds (weight is up & down by 5 pounds), had a 4 level lumbar fusion in 2006, was very active to that point. The surgery, although made my spine stable, left me with a lot of nerve pain. In 2007, I was diagnosed with asthma, there was plural fluid in the right lung. So I'm battling both pain and asthma, with fluid build up some. More recently, I had swelling of the ankles & feet, was seen by a heart specialist, after a complete set of tests, my heart was fine. I've been on Furosemide 40mg for fluid (since 12/10), it was somewhat under control.
The last week or so, my ankles & feet, as well as my lower legs, are swelling again (worse), even though I'm on the water pill mentioned above. I don't know what to do, I go to the doctor, my blood counts looks good, prior to going to the heart doctor, I had to go to the ER for what amounted to be severe constipation, high white blood cell counts were noted. My legs are also tingly.
What can I do?
