Please Please Please someone tell me they have experienced themselves or through someone else my question. I am a 57 year old male. Pretty darn good shape. Eat properly, exercise, take supplements etc. I have been off and on BP (metropolol) through the VA for a few years. However, out of denial or believing I could correct it by lifestyle I have stopped taking them before and/or lowered the ng lvl I was taking to see I still needed them. Headaches appeared and I went back on and off again. I started with 25 ng and now am up to 100ng daily because my Doctor kept inching up my ng level based on my readings. The last couple months I have had headaches constantly. All day except when I am sleeping which I don't do very well. I guess I try to self medicate and be my own Doctor alot. I thought I was taking to much and then not enough. I have a BP digital monitor which I use at different points of the day to see if any fluctuation exists. I have not seen 120/80 ever. 170/126 is probably the best numbers I an remember. I know if I cold turkey quit after a week or two I begin a headhache. But what happens if I take too much or too little metroplol? Does too little or too much BP medicine cause headaches. By the afternoon I am sitting in my office in what feels like my eyes are sitting back in my head and I am in a tunnel. Eyes are red too. I also take zyrtex for allergies at night before I go to bed. The afternoon when I get am in my office seems to be the worst time of day. At night when I go home it seems to ease up even disappear. I thought initially it was my office or air circulation? Or, the weather and recent flu and cold that won't go away this time of year that everyone I know has. I don't know, desparation I guess so I look at everything. Any thought please? Thanks, Dave
