Propranolol withdrawal/muscle twitching/cramps in leg

Posted , 3 users are following.

hi all,

ive been on 80mg propranolol twice a day for two years for severe migraine. Ive been weaning off and am now on 20mg twice a day. Ive been weaning slowly but the last month ive had the most awful muscle twitching all over my body, horrific anxiety and cramping and lots of twitching in my left leg plus chest spasm/ pain every so often. im terrified ive got MND as even my neuro saying these are not common withdrawals. can anyone reassure me please that these are withdrawal symptoms?

thankyou Cathy
