Hi Jeffuk and everyone on this site. I have now been almost 3 weeks off Atenol and generally feeling good. BP and Heart rate is stable and i feel a hell of a lot better. I got some palpitations today and have had a strange mild electric shock like feeling around the chest over the heart area very briefly once or twice since yesterday which has got me a bit concerned. I know my lipid numbers are very good. If i had a few bad days food wise before now i eat very healthy exercise and generally try and eat very good and healthy all the time. I am wondering could the palpitations and the strange feeling i described be linked to the withdrawal of Atenol as the heart tries to find its normal rythem and speed etc or could be something more which i should investigate with a cardiologist. Appreciate your feedback when possible.
