I was on metoprolol tartratre 12.5mg 2xdaily. I got permission from doctor to abruptly stop. I have only been taking this since Oct.6th this month.
Off & on I have been having this squeezing/pressure around my temples and it feels it's around my eyes and nose too. Heavy head feeling, feels like I'm going to crash on the floor & it'll take my breath away when it's at a max.. I can set it off by eating something warm, usually it happens at night.
I went to the ER last night-my vitals were normal so they sent me home.. The night before that I was in a different ER, and had a normal cat scan, they thought it was a migraine (painless?). Gave me drugs, and sent me home.
Is this scary squeezing sensation from stopping the pill? The anti-anxiety pill they gave me in the ER last night made it seem not so bad, but they're still there. How long do these sensations last? Has anyone else had a similar sensation? If so what was it. .
