Well, good for you, for persevering. That does explains some incongruities, doesn't it?!

I know what you mean about the BP meds. For several years, I had been complaining of itching, but it was never full-blown and we weren't sure if it were meds or not. Last fall, we finally started experimenting, when I insisted, after trying everything else I could think of...shampoos, soaps, foods. We found two new meds which I've been on since and they do a tremendous job. The others didn't even keep my BP down in a consistent manner and we knew I was allergic to most of the ones which came before. The new meds are more expensive, but worth it.

All the best for you on this new journey of discovery, Susan.
