Hello! So about a month ago what I said in the title happened. I am a bit obese as well im about 5'4 and 210 lbs. I was started on Coversyl 4mg.. didn't work. Doctor just switched me to Amlodipine 5mg, today was my 3rd day taking it. I am going to go check my BP tomorrow as everything has been closed due to turkey day (I'm in Canada lol) So here is where I would like advice : I had no side effects from the coversyl..But seems I am having minor ones from the new med. I know when it kicks in because I feel a bit dizzy and then a wee bit of heart/heart area pain, nothing crazy. I have a anxiety/Panic disorder as well, but I have noticed the past about 2 months (and I know its not my anxiety, but rather triggers it) my left arm feels..weird. either "floaty" or swollen, and my right arm is normal. especially during exercise. But just doing nothing as well. About 10 mins ago I was laying on my belly and it was like it started to go numb..I started to panic and jumped up and now it just feels floaty or "detached" even. I have told my Dr. about it. I have no pain or pins/needles or true numbness..it freaks me out though and I do not need more fuel for my anxiety fire. I will also mention that until the past few days(althought I mostly cut down past few months) I have been a heavy drinker for about 10 years and smoker. I "quit" smoking about 3 months ago (only smoke when I drink kinda thing) I have been sober from both for 2 days n 22hrs now ..as im writing im having a few pains in my left arm..ugh..Anyway the biggest discomfort is after I eat!! My heart starts beating faster and "hard" and my left arm feels weird, seems to be worse at breakfast time..but can happen anytime..and happens all the time now! Any advice would be apprieciated! Ty! (Also I have been fairly sedatary n such as well, no wonder I have high BP..but I am making a real effort to stop my habits and get healthy!! I don't wanna die!
