Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol leg cramps

toprol

My eyelashes are also falling out, but not as rapidly as the hair on my head. (I also started having insomnia and leg cramps at night.)My MD is in the process of weaning me from the drug - 12.5mg 1x per day for 10 days, now (beginning today) 12.5mg every other day. From what I've read, I'm suffering from telogen effluvium - although my MD is reluctant to blame the drug. I should be weaned from it w/i 10-12 more days.
metoprolol,ramipril and omeprazole can these cause constant diarrhea and leg cramps
One other symptom that has thankfully gone away - I had MAJOR leg cramps (charlie horse type) in my lower legs and feet at night. They have stopped since I got off the Metoprolol.
and realize you probably will need an MRI of your back. As for the calf problem perhaps you experience leg cramps with the sciatica. That can leave pain in your affected muscle for days. Maybe a bruise is the cause of your calf pain. If you are concerned about a clot now the best thing to do is go to the ER and voice your concerns. If you have your leg extended while lying in the bed, face up, can you identity increased pain in your calf.
There is evidence Toprol CAN cause leg cramps. Also, low potassium is murder on your legs, they hurt, they cramp,etc. so I think I'd check that first. Hope this helps and thanks for the question. Take care.
We tried a Calcium channel blocker and I had severe leg cramps, hand cramps, nech spasm and bad headache. We stopped that and put the beta blocker back on along with Mexitile 150mg BID. I was still in Bigemeny so he increased the mexitile to 150mg TID. Now he wants me to see the pulmonologist because he thinks my SOB is not cardiac but Sarcoid related. I was not SOB before I went back in Bigeminy.
The second time (1 year and 1/2 later) I was laying in bed and my leg cramped and I had an episode. Again, they got it under control and informed me that because I have had issues in the past I was 80% more likely to have it again. My current cardiologist has me in a daily dose of Metoprorol and baby asprin. I have been on this for over 2 years now and they have not changed anything. Is there long term side effects and am I too young to be on this regiment?
The leg stiffness may be because of some deconditioning, and probably is not related to the beta blocker, unless you have peripheral arterial disease. If you have leg cramps while walking or running then arterial brachial indices should be obtained to screen you for PAD.
Likely clinically insignificant cyst above mouth. Slightly deviated septum. No other findings. Left leg, right leg, and right arm EMG: normal Chest CT: trace gynecomastia. Borderline enlarged spleen. No aneurysms. Cardiologist and GP dismiss gynecomastia and enlarged spleen finding as inconsequential. CDC & B12 levels: B12 low. Slightly Dehydrated. Fasting blood sugar good.
Holding for at least another 4 days before I start shaving a little off. My worst problems are foot and leg cramps at night and night sweats, then feeling chilly with sometimes burning cold feet during the day (could be from frostbite as a kid in Michigan). Are those normal w/d symptoms? They are driving me crazy cause it's every night. Need a break from these symptoms. Do I wait until those go away to make another cut?
There are several causes for calf cramps and muscle fatiguing and burning associated with muscle twitching. Muscle cramps are not an uncommon manifestation of a systemic viral illness. Muscle cramps with twitching may be due to myopathy. A myopathy is basically a generic term for a muscle problem. Myopathies can be inflammatory, as is the case with a disorder called polymyositis which is an autoimmune disorder.
I take metoprolol for PVC's and SVT. The major side effects I've experienced are TIREDNESS and, because I already have low BP and vasovagal syndrome, it has made me more prone to passing out then I have been for years. The metoprolol knocks you on your butt when you first start taking it. It also caused me to have really weird dreams when I did sleep. My heart rate went from an average of 65 bpm to 55 bpm with 12.5mg/day. I take prozac for the anxiety that was caused by PVC's and SVT.
The AFP continuing to rise needs to be investigated thoroughly, though doing the same test over again may not necessarily be the best idea if it it's been done and didn't show anything. If you just had an MRI, docs could do a tri-phasic CT scan next. Have you had a CT-Scan yet where they inject warm stuff in your arm first? And how about ultrasound, when was that done last? Have you been checked for testicular cancer as well?

I had cramps in the muscles, leg pains, aches, headaches, HR 140 sitting down, dropped from 130 lbs to 88 lbs even though Iate like a horse. I had insomnia & was so hyper. I had head intolerance. People just kept asking me what I was on at work, I was just non stop. It was not until I developed a toxic goiter (that became so noticeable in my 88 lb body frame) that doctors could not MISS it. I freaked out when I noticed one morning my neck looked like a football players lineman neck.
I forced myself to drink a lot yesterday, but I still got leg cramps, because I have to go to the bathroom. It just doesn't stay. I need a salty snack!
Start the week off by calling the neuro and asking about the leg pain since I started requip Work Go with Hubby for his 1st diabetic training class Come home cook dinner feed & play with the dogs and collapse Tuesday "just work" hubby golfs and the kids work nights that day that bubble bath I heard mentioned sounds goud Wed work and pay the bills (my favorite) Thursday appt with the gyno for cramps like terrible menstrual kind only I don't have the parts left so maybe she can fi
and for even a year after that you are going to chronic leg cramps that are so bad they tear your muscles. imho the slow, perhaps over a year long gradual ween is the most humane. unless you can pay 40,000 for this greedy ******* who owns the proprietary trademark for anaesthisia assisted detox.
I have a quick question, and trying to post a question in the Heart and Respiratory areas is kinda difficult. I wanted to ask this earlier and BEFORE I use my inhalers this evening. I have irregular, rapid heartbeat, emphysema and asthma. I have been on albuteral (quick relief) and atrovent (long acting relief) inhalers along with asthmacort. Two weeks ago my dr upper my Qvar dose (steriod) and then yesterday added Serevent to the list.

PENN. CHECKING TO SEE HOW YOU ARE DOING,MY BODY HAS DECIDED TO DO ITS ETERNAL BUZZING FROM HEAD TO TOES TODAY,PLUS THE SPASMS. THAT DARN ICE CREAM DIDN'T HELP EITHER.
Wow! This is eerie to suddenly come upon this thread. Had a heart attack at 45 in Jan '08, with 100% blockage of the LAD. They stented it. I had a rod like pain about the size of a 4" pencil to the left of my sternum - my cardiologist said it was nothing extraordinary. Had a lot of travel and work stress in Sep/Oct and I started getting intermittent pain traveling up the neck to the left side of my jaw. The pain also radiated to my left arm pit.
My legs were so full of fluid that when I tried to walk it felt like I had about 60 pounds of sand attached to each leg, and everything I used to do for swelling in my ankles wasn't working anymore. I constantly felt like I needed to go to the bathroom and I can only surmise it was because of the extreme swelling in my lower body putting pressure on everything. At one time I fell down in some gravel and cut little holes in one of my legs.
However, this caused statin rebound, which took the form of two bouts of leg cramps about two months later, return of peripheral neuropathy Big Time, and, about a month after I quit the statin, a run of tachycardia which had me calling for an ambulance. There followed a series of odd PVC's and other weird heart behaviors which plagued me off and on for several months.The tachy never again went as high as it did when I was taken to ER and soon disappeared entirely.
I guess you know what to expect, but if you have bad RLS, you may want to try mag/cal supplement, 1000 mg I think. And hylands restful legs or leg cramps. It really does work. And stay away from the antihistimines if the RLS is bad. Those can make it worse. Good luck. You should start a new question so you can get some support during your detox. People here are really helpful!
I too have fainted during an onset of severe cramps. I usually squirm on the bathroom floor and then I start sweating and then I wake up about 20 min later on the bathroom floor. It is unimagineable pain that I am in and it is always a scarey experience when I am about to faint. It is nice to hear that I am not the only one that experiences this..
in each leg to protect the blood vessels as they ran the 4 catheters up (2 in each leg). I assume they do that for everyone. I'm not sure how the hematomas form. Most of the wiggling around is done in the heart by remote control. I was able to watch some of it on the screen during my first ablation. Just take it easy for awhile. The pain will go away. Sometimes there's some pressure or bruising on a nerve and it's quite uncomfortable for a few weeks.
I had 2 ablations and each time my heart rate increased for a short time after the procedure. I did not experience any chest pain or discomfort other than my leg was a bit sore. Interestingly, after the second procedure, my BP rose enough to warrant a small dose of medication. Up until then, my BP was on the low side...95-110/55-65. Hope you are feeling better. I'm happy to hear your test results are good!! Take care.
