I'm sorry I don't want to post a new topic since what I'm going to share now is connected to this post. 6 days ago I weaned down on my metroprolol, so it's been 6 days since I started taking it once a day. Now every morning I get this pressure thing in my head like the feeling of when you're doing a head stand. Once I get my eyes
open in the morning I can feel my heartbeat pound on my chest and head which I don't usually get before. Since the day I weaned down my bp ranges from 115/75 to 126/83. Before when I was still taking my med twice a day it ranges from
103/61 to 115/72. Weaning down surely made a change.
This is what I want to share as I was scared a little
This morning kinda freaked me out cause I was startled awake and when I closed my eyes I can see flashes of light that goes with my heartbeat. I tried to remain calm and at this point I'm not freaked out yet. But when I started to feel pressure on my head I tried to move from lying sideways to lying flat facing the ceiling while stretching my whole body, and then this is what freaked me out, I felt my body move like it was being rocked by my blood pressure. I had this twice already and the first one was when I was having a panic attack in bed, I felt my body moved by my increased heart rate and blood pressure. Earlier today it felt like I was being pushed in the back because while turning and stretching it felt like there's someone pushed me on my back, it's not only a feeling but I was moved. I got out from bed to check my bp and got a 148/96 reading. I never got a reading like this since April, now I feel like I need to worry bout my bp spikes all over again.
Can blood pressure really make you feel like your body is being rocked or moved?
I also started to worry about
this vibrating thing near my spine that is different from the inner tremors I get in my legs and neck. It's a constant feeling of something is vibrating on a low level that last long and doesn't stop especially when my back is resting on the chair. I tried to think it's gasses but moving gasses inside us usually stops and doesn't last for a long period of time. Also I can hear gasses using a stethoscope but with this I can't hear anything whenever I feel it's vibrating on my spine (near kidneys). My anxiety makes me think clogged arteries, fluid in the lungs, adrenal and kidney abnormality. Hope everything is just caused by anxiety and not something serious since I can't get any medical help for now.
I'm really waiting for that time when I'll be able to rule most of my worries out by getting a thorough check-up and easily tell myself there's really nothing serious/wrong to worry about
. It's hard to make myself believe sometimes I'm just fine cause I don't have evidence/results that I'm not suffering from any kind of disease or serious health condition.
I'm sorry for venting this out. *sigh* I thank God He's keeping me alive. It's my wife birthday today and I didn't expect to feel this way. Even if I feel bad for not being good enough for her on her special day, I feel grateful that I'm able to spend the day with her.
