Metoprolol Chest Discomfort Causes and Reviews


Each year almost 800,000 Americans have a heart attack. A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart suddenly becomes blocked. Without the blood coming in, the heart can't get oxygen. If not treated quickly, the heart muscle begins to die. But if you do get quick treatment, you may be able to prevent or limit damage to the heart muscle. That's why it's important to know the symptoms of a heart attack and call 9-1-1 if you or someone else is having them. You should call, even if you are not sure that it is a heart attack.

The most common symptoms in men and women are

  • Chest discomfort. It is often in center or left side of the chest. It usually lasts more than a few minutes. It may go away and come back. It can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain. It also can feel like heartburn or indigestion.
  • Shortness of breath. Sometimes this is your only symptom. You may get it before or during the chest discomfort. It can happen when you are resting or doing a little bit of physical activity.
  • Discomfort in the upper body. You may feel pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach.

You may also have other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and lightheadedness. You may break out in a cold sweat. Sometimes women will have different symptoms then men. For example, they are more likely to feel tired for no reason.

The most common cause of heart attacks is coronary artery disease (CAD). With CAD, there is a buildup of cholesterol and other material, called plaque, on their inner walls or the arteries. This is atherosclerosis. It can build up for years. Eventually an area of plaque can rupture (break open). A blood clot can form around the plaque and block the artery.

A less common cause of heart attack is a severe spasm (tightening) of a coronary artery. The spasm cuts off blood flow through the artery.

At the hospital, health care providers make a diagnosis based on your symptoms, blood tests, and different heart health tests. Treatments may include medicines and medical procedures such as coronary angioplasty. After a heart attack, cardiac rehabilitation and lifestyle changes can help you recover.

Metoprolol Chest Discomfort Reviews

Tue, 28 Sep 2010
I have been taking Metoprolol for four months. I just spent 2 days in the hospital with the whole cardiac check out. The stress test revealed all is ok, for now, with my heart. The anxiety it has caused me is unbearable. Shortness of breath, Chest Discomfort, dizzy, blurry vision, upset stomach are some of the effects I have experienced. I never had any of these with Norvasc. While in the hospital, I was given lot's of ativan to help with the anxiety and one 25mg HCTz. Once I got back home and took the Metoprolol, I began to have the same side effects again. Not only am I not going to take it anymore, I am also changing doctors to help control my high blood pressure.
Wed, 09 Feb 2011
i've been on the generic Metoprolol for 3 days. dr. started me on 25mg 2x per day and i've been experiencing shortness of breath, Chest Discomfort and dizziness. i cut the dosage down to 6.5mg per day and feel a little better (palpations have stabilized) but still having some Chest Discomfort and mild fluttering. now after reading many of the posts here, i just want to stop taking this med fearing it will triger some other long term side effect. i still don't feel well and am very worried. any suggestions?
Mon, 28 Feb 2011
I went to hospital twice in 9 months related to Atenalol(I was on for 4 years) and Metopolol(for last 9 months). Both gave me similar side effects; but Metapolol gave me Chest discomfort and funny feelings in the head(might be the lightheadedness). This time the doctors told me NOT TO TAKE metapolol anymore. They recommend to do more exercise and healthy eating would do the same with no any side effects at all. Any thoughts....
