So I’m up at almost 6am afraid to go to sleep because my heart has been pounding so hard and so fast that I can hear it in my ears. I’m sure people have seen my previous post about me stopping the beta-blockers. Today makes my 3rd week of being off of them after a 5 month run of 100mg drug. Currently on a ACH inhibitor, so I haven’t NOT been taking anything for my high BP. Has anyone had this problem going off beta-blockers and will the withdrawal symptoms ever go away?? When my heart used to pound that fast before I was taking beta blockers (from anxiety or stress) it didn’t take much for it to slow down. But it’s been hours and it’s been fluctuating in between 110-124 BPM. I don’t know if it’s because the fact that it is beating so fast that’s not helping it come down or what. Either way, I am worried and annoyed. No chest pain. No problem breathing. I didn’t have any problem with my heart before the beta blockers but I’m afraid that problems may develop them since I’ve stopped them. I’m so mad at myself for not defeating these things when my doctor first talked about prescribing them. Now I don’t know what’s gonna happen with me from here on out and I’m scared.
P.S. - Just to be clear, I am 22 years old, and I have high BP. And anxiety.
