Side effects

After the general panic that was this afternoon after I was told my blood pressure was getting too high too fast and being told all of the wonderful complications that go along with it, I sensibly took myself off to the pharmacy to get the magic pills that might help, or might not, but it's worth a try.

Anyway, being the child of a scientist father and a mother who spent most of her working life working in hospitals I googled the drugs I had been given to see what they are and whether there are any side effects.

Amongst other side effects, they are likely to cause nausea, dizziness, fatigue, swelling of the ankles and problems with the movement of ones bowels.

So, just like being pregnant then.
