Metoprolol and leg pain

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and leg pain


Avatar m tn I went back to work July 1st and even though I'm doing the same amount of walking everyday at work, I'm still worn out from walking with leg pain until I get seated and rested and then when I start walking again it happens all over. The only thing that comes to mind is the metoprolol to help my heart not work as hard, but I'm supposed to get exercise and it's really difficult to do under these conditions.
Avatar m tn I have a migraine with throbbing pain in my head since I start it 2 weeks ago. I have more chest pain and left arm and hand are numb most of the time. My jaw hurt and all my teeth also. I have insomnia, have some vision change, my energy level is even lower than on the propranolol. I also feel depression... The propranolol don't do that... I feel so awful that I decrease the dose to 12.5 mg every 12 hours insistead of 25 mg every 12 hours but even with a lower dose I feel very bad.
Avatar n tn Why do doctors persist in denying that Metoprolol and similar beta blockers cause hair loss? Do they really NOT KNOW or are they just oblivious and uncaring to the devastation that these meds cause?
Avatar m tn Ok, I've had pain in back of both knees and down legs for over 5 years. I have had lots of testing and seen several doctor specialties... It started as a tingling in both knees for three days, went away for three weeks, then came back as a painful sensation and has worsened over the years. Right now it's quite painful and distracting as I type this. Some times I can block it out and not think about it. Maybe because I'm accustomed to it. But it's really hard to ignore it most times.
Avatar f tn During May I found out that this leg pain could be a side effect of atenolol. Talked to the family Dr. and tapered off the atenolol and the leg pain went away. Stayed off the Atenolol for approximately 6 days and woke during the night with heart rate of 110, by the time I got the the Dr.'s office later that moring my heart rate was 120. The Dr. then put me on Bystolic, 5 mg, 1 x daily. I have been on the Bystolic for 3 weeks and the leg pain is back. Have appt with family Dr.
Avatar m tn I have also had very painful musculoskeletal chest pain and ankle joint pain. I had severe asthma, shortness of breath and fatigue. After a lot of dizziness and other pain, and discussions with my doctor, I slowly decreased my dose and have been Metoprolol free for two days. My cough, wheeze, pain etc has almost gone. I have immediately more energy and also no dizziness. My legs and ankles still hurt and I have tight calves. I hope my body returns to what it used to be.
471161 tn?1317194550 My PCP told me it could be the Metoprolol and I have been off of it for 4 days now. My heart rate is fine and I was down to a very low dose anyway. I am wondering if it will take longer to get it out of my system or if it may be the Digoxin ro something completely different. Please if anyone has experienced this let me know.
Avatar m tn It occurs most often on the top of my thigh just above and knee and at the middle of my inner thigh. The pain varies between aching, stabbing, and burning. I am also currently experiencing pain on the back and side of my calf at about the middle portion of my lower leg. Sitting, especially in a vehicle, also creates pain around the tendons at the back of my knee. Sitting, in general, seems to make the pain worse.
Avatar f tn I have PAD as well as CAD and I have leg cramps in the calves quite often. I also take Lopressor for my blood pressure and heart ryhthm, but think my cramps are from the blockages.
Avatar m tn Also after 6 hours on the med I can tell its wearing off and I get tired and slight chest pain. I have now been on this med for 18 days have lost 11 lbs. Was perscribed for rapid heart rate and blood pressure mine is now running in the 130's-140's over 70's with 60-89 beats a minute.
Avatar n tn I have been having generalized joint aches and now have numbness under my left great toe and part of the ball of my foot. It also seems as though I have "restless leg" issues at night. Recently, I have noticed an increase in lower leg and pedal edema (mild, but slightly pitting if I'm up all day on my feet). I have cervical disc problems and a type of trigeminal neuralgia and take Neurontin. I also take metoprolol for WPW (only 12.5mg daily).
Avatar n tn now today the pain isn't as bad, still there, but now my heart is going really fast, especially when I stand up and when I lay back down I get palpitations for a few minutes. sometimes the pain radiates to my chest or shoulder. I've had random pains in those areas for a while.
Avatar m tn I have constant pain in my shoulders, and fingers and palms of both hands. I have high blood pressure,& gout. I had a problem with syotic nerve in my leg. Dr. prescriped 25 mg of Lyrica. Added to my daily regimen of Ketorolac 10mg,naproxn 500mg, Keetoconazole2% for skin condition,trammadolhcl 50 mg, Avapro300mg,metoprolol tart 25mg,losartan 100mg, amlodipine 10 mg,gabapentin 600 mg, Allopurinol 300mg, a lot right??
Avatar n tn thing with me when I told him about the weight gain. This week I am having a lot of unusual knee and leg pain and no one can say why. The pain only starts after I take my 5mg Bystolic tablet. I too gained 15 pds with no dietary changes. I joined Weight Watchers and an wasting money nothing seems to be working to lose the weight.
Avatar m tn It seems to occur randomly, but I want to make sure it isn't an indication of long term problems with the medication. This also occurs sometimes when I am walking, and my left leg will also have the same sensation. It lasts for about 5 minutes, but for the next hour my limb will be tingly and feels numb compared to everywhere else. Is this a common occurrence? Thank You!
378273 tn?1262101221 PVC's (or maybe they are PAC's?) Could this be due to the pain in the leg? Or rather the stress because of the pain? I'm taking Ibuprofen, though the pharmacist said it is not a good idea while on Metoprolol, but if I don't take it all the time there shouldn't be a problem. Could the interaction between the Meto and the Ibu be causing the palpitations? Just wondering!
Avatar f tn I recommend you continue to work with your cardiologist to figure out how to get over your symptoms. Living w/ chest pain/pressure and stents is not an easy road, and I hope you get over the hump soon. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Just an up-date, My doctor changed my medication to 300mg of Diltiazem. All of my leg muscle pain is gone, I can walk again without pain! And the chest pain that goes all the way through to my back is also gone! Metoprolol took all of my energy, and ambition, which I really didn't realize until I stopped taking it. I found it very difficult to get out of bed while taking Metoprolol.
Avatar n tn My heart rate does go up a bit and I do have chest pain and a tingle in my left arm like others have said. They say that WPW is something people are born with. Personally I think its "our" diets we grow up eatting fast food along with other horrible things we feed our bodies. I'll encourage all of "us" myself included to eat better and stay away from fast food.
Avatar m tn Fatigue, Leg Pain, SOB. My doctor prescribed me Gliclazide-15mg-1(1/2 of 30mg), Nerveup OD-1, Aspirin (75mg)+Clopilet-1, Metoprolol XL -1, Sorbitrate – bid, atorvastatin-1, My Age is 48 years. I AM HAVING ERECTIONS DAILY DURING SLEEP AND DAYTIME ALSO. Now my question is whether i can participate in SEX(Intercourse) now. pl. advise me.
Avatar f tn Most likely your symptoms could be due to circulatory problems (due to low blood pressure), injury to a nerve, pressure on spinal or peripheral nerves (neuropathy), vitamin deficiency, viral infection and use of certain medications. In addition, atherosclerosis can also cause pain, numbness, and tingling while walking and they can also reduce blood supply and lead to numbness. Please consult your doctor to get all these possibilities evaluation in your case for further assessment.
988870 tn?1284810404 Dear Heiferly, Sorry to hear you have not been well, I have several types of neuropathy, Peripheral neuropathy, Motor Neuropathy (Right Purneal Nerve-causes right foot drop for which I wear an AFO brace on the Right Leg), and Autonomic Neuropathy. I was Diagnosed with Autonomic Neuropathy approximately 4 years ago. Yes, I do have Type 2 Diabetes which was under very poor control for several years.
Avatar f tn I was sterilized in 2007 and the surgeon unknowingly clipped my ureter twice and the pain was excruciating. I was only kept in hospital overnight and they kicked me out. I kept asking for help and I was in agony for months but they did nothing. I was walking round with a severely hydronephrosed kidney for months and my blood pressure went throught the roof. It strained my heart and I have left ventricular hypertrophy because of it.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn I checked with pharmacist and he said both Metoprolol and Atacand have shortness of breath side effects and spoke again with my dr and he said I should continue for a while.... because I have been using them for 3 month now... any suggestions?
11671086 tn?1420330602 This turned out to be the result of severe sleep apnea which was corrected through CPAP. But I discovered that while the Metoprolol did nothing for my SVT, it did help to convert them, and I could often halt an episode within seconds of its commencement.
Avatar m tn I suffer from chest pressure, chest pain, left shoulder pain, left arm pain, left elbow pain, veins that swell in my left forearn, lower jaw pain, dizziness and leg pain (only when walking up stairs). I have been told my symptoms are "atypical" in nature for cardiac problems but when you look them up on the internet they all say heart condition. I want to see my doc. but they always brush me off, saying it is anxiety. I don't know what to do anymore. I have had many tests done.
Avatar n tn suggested i see neurologist, could have something to do with petuitory gland, now i have tingling left arm, and left leg, and upper right thigh (which I have had for awhile the thigh) still in and out lightheadiness. eyes checked he said nothing, this dizziness feels like when you move fast you get that instant surge . It happens when I just move my eyes. I hope to hear what you find out at the eye nose and throat.
Avatar n tn anxiety comes from projections into the future (depresssion in views of the past)...just be 'here now' and kinda get up close and personal with pain/symptoms/sensation without judging and projecting...a process a bit like 'normalization'...
Avatar n tn It's always the last few days of my cycle. Today, I freaked out over the headaches, nausea and chest pain and called for an ambulance to come check me out. Afterwards, I called the OBGYN to make an appt for thorough blood testing. It's very comforting to know that there are several other women out there like me who also pinpointed it down to raging hormones. Thank you for the piece of mind!!
