You might try drinking plenty of water, 1/2 oz / pound of body weight / day, and a couple tablespoons of Bragg's apple cider vinegar with mother.
This might help with the blood pressure and you might be able to get off the meds.

I also believe that I will get my 3rd class medical but at a cost that should not be. At this point there is nothing I can do but jump through all the hoops to satisfy a power hungery AME, which is disappointing.

I had high hopes for the AOPA initiative but they saddled us voluntarily with most of the same limitations as light sport. WTF? ...........

Shitcan that guy! I don't see why you can't jump ship to another AME, even mid-stream during the SI process. If he's not part of the solution, then he's part of the problem.

I found my last few Cdl phy's more demanding then my 3 rd class's when I still went that route. Rightly so. My crane weighs 40 k +, the plane 730, I drive in traffic, fly in remote areas mostly, so Joe Sixpak is much more endangered by my crane driving then my S-7 flying!

That's my point , there shouldn't have to be secrets...........
Today's update my Doctor Doctor sent a complete history for the last 10 years along with a family history to the AME but the AME didn't like the "Narative" part???? My Doctor Doctor has never done this before so I tried to get the AME to call him today to explain to the Doctor Doctor what exactly he wanted and he wouldn't......what a complete jerk......
Is there a place where you can report knuckleheads like this....he should not be allowed to be an AME. Is there some regional surpervisor for AME's ?????
