You have to go see your doctor to ask about swings in BP. Some drugs can have this side effect, singly or in combination. Old blokes like us should have BP closely monitored as our plumbing isn't what it was.
Now I am not a doctor, but it sounds like you are on a bundle of drugs, and it may be useful to go get a second opinion from a different doctor as to whether you really must have all of them. Maybe some lifestyle changes would help.
Now as to having trouble passing water, I can say from personal experience that Tamsul (Flomaxtra) eventually does lose its effectiveness. I had BPH (benign prostate enlargement) which saw me go to the bathroom 4-5 times a night. Flomaxtra helped for a while, but eventually the BPH caught up and I was back to square one. I had it bored out with a green laser and now all is good. So ask your doctor about that.

Most people with well-managed diabetes tend to die with it rather than dying from it but it can go crazy if you become ill and can no longer maintain a consistent lifestyle.
I know nothing about COPD other than these days it is more of a general description of a range of conditions or illnesses affecting the lungs and your doctor should explain more precisely what is wrong.
An asthma attack can be potentially serious for an otherwise healthy person - you need to avoid an attack!
"Being in heart failure" is potentially serious, depending on the degree of the condition. Some people who look after themselves can continue to have a relatively normal life for many years - again you need to seek the advice of your doctor.
I note you said your diagnosis is acute rather than chronic. It would be very bad luck if that is the diagnosis for all your conditions rather than one or two - again you should talk to your doctor. Suffering from several serious conditions at once means you must be particularly careful to manage each one correctly because if one condition escalates it is likely to adversely affect the other conditions.
For more information and possibly conversations with other sufferers I suggest you go to ehealth.com.
The term was originally used only in Northern England, meaning the period from Saturday noon to Monday morning, and was not in wide use until the late 19th century. The notion of people working for only 5 or 5 1/2 days in a week would not be familiar to the Dowager Countess, who is accustomed to the countryside and great houses, where people worked 6 or 7 days a week. Edit: It could also be that neither the dowager, nor anyone she'd socialize with, has ever worked at all. Therefore it wouldn't occur to her that there are "workdays" and "non-workdays." In her life, a Saturday would be no different from a Tuesday. (A Sunday would, but only by religious custom.) When Matthew mentions the weekend, it only underscores that until now he's been a middle class lawyer in a very different circle.
