I'm in my early 50's and have been taking a blood pressure medicine for more thank 10 years. Over the past year my dr has put me on Lisinopril to help reduce the swollen ankles and it helped at first, but now nothing seems to be working. My legs hurt so bad that it makes exercising hurt. I'm slightly overweight, and try to walk more, but my ankles are so swollen, other people notice and comment on it. Also my dr told me I was borderline diabetes and tried to put me on medicine this year too. I am not taking it, because my daily testing strips show that I am in the normal range and I just don't want to complicate things that much. Any suggestions anyone?
