Dear Dawie

Thank you for visiting

Hypertension treatment should be personalised according to the effect that it has on the blood pressure, as well as the prevelance of side effects. For an athlete, I will consider using a product like Coversil. This is an ACE inhibitor and usually well tolerated by athletes.

Kind regards

I have had the following symptoms: Soon after eating anything it feels as if i am bloated, and while breathing it hurts in the middle/just at the bottom of my ribcage. I then breathe shallower and as the day goes on i feel the tension pain in my neck muscles.This condition is worse when i lie down.Then it feels like i have swallowed a huge ball.
