Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.

What causes itching?

Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are

  • Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin

  • Using moisturizing lotions
  • Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
  • Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
  • Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity

Fri, 19 Mar 2010
I have had heart Arrhythmias ? heart beats up to 200 bpm , when I workout , play ball, especially basketball and floorball. (had them for about 25 years) I can occationally get it if I bend down to pick something up, because I put pressure to my abdomon. The palpitations can last from 5 -10minutes to 45 min. usually. Usually goes away if I can lay down. I have now seen a doctor about this, and he is going to send me further to at heart clinic to find out what is happening. He gave me Metoprolol 50 mg a day, until I get in to the heart clinic. I have no high blood pressure. My question is....is Metoprolol the right type of beta block for me ?.....i didn't feel to good (abnormal) after taking 50 milligrams this morning. after 30 mins I started to feeel wierd and after about 1,5 hours I started to feel better. Should he have given me another type of beta blocker? Of what I have read there probably is other types that are for Arrhythmias ?

severity of symptoms started very gradually, starting with lowering of blood pressure and slowing of heart rate,to shortness of breath, increasing effects of sleep apnea even with a-pap ussage and eventually modafonil perscriptions, and depression and extreme feelings of dispair, shortness of breath and lethargy mimicing heart failure. All tests were monitored and GP and Cardiologists and not discribed in drug handouts provided.

I call it the death pill because thats what it makes you feel like. Severe reaction on my asthma, stomach, ulcers, ear infections, jitters, numbness, tingling, blurred vision, im sure there are 50 more i havent mentioned oh thats right quot;memory lossquot;, fatigue, constipation and or diarhea, there really should be a better beta blocker out there somewhere. I take this one for high blood pressure and i think i was better off with the high blood pressure.
Sat, 10 Jan 2009
I have only taken Metoprolol for 2 days and I feel like I am suffocating. My muscles feel stiff and I have alot of heartburn. I also feel bloated and very uncomfortable. I will not take it anymore. I hate blood pressure medication! I was taking atenolol for months and had trouble concentrating, thinking, and remembering. I had no energy to do anything nor did I care if anything got done. My doctor tells me now that it effects the central nervous system. I wonder what else it effects!
Sat, 10 Jan 2009
Fatigue was the biggest problem while taking Metoprolol. It was so bad that when I would come home from work I had to go straight to bed.I also had severe joint pains associated with this medication. I have since changed to Toprol XL, which has made a big difference.
Mon, 09 Feb 2009
send me any information on the side effect of this medicine
