I'm 55 years old, and have hereditary HBP.
I've been on 5mg Amlodipine for 3 months, and thought I'd finally found a drug that suited me, having tried about 4 or 5 others in the past.
6 weeks ago, my left side suddenly went tingly - pins and needles that started in the sole of my left foot, travelled all the way up the left side of my body, into my arm and hand, and up my neck into my face.
It lasted for about 10 minutes, and left me with a pain in my face, just over my cheekbone, and my left ear felt as though it was full of water.
Scared me half to death. I was at work, so went to see the nurse, she checked my BP, at 120/60, and said she thought it ws just that my BP had dropped so much (it had been 160/104 at one point at the start of this year).
Since then I keep getting pins and needles in my arms and hands,
sometimes my feet, and my fingres are starting to go numb.
I've been to see my GP, and he said it's not the Amlodipine, and has referred me to Neurology att he hospital, but reading this site, I'm not so sure it's not the Amlodipine causing it.
Has anyone else had the same problem?
