But here goes. I was given Betaxolol for high blood pressure. I had severe eye problems on the second day. The doc suggested I cut the pill in half and I had the same eye problem on the second day. I quit after only 4 pills and then the trouble started. I got up from my PC one morning and couldn't walk straight. I walked to the left, it was more balance then dizziness. I also had head aches off and on since this started. It got worse as the day went on and ended spending the night in the hosptial for tests. I think they were worried about a stroke. Everything came back negative. Later when my balance improved, I tried a shower sitting down so I would not fall out of the shower stall. LOL I sat on one bench put my foot on the opposite one to shave my legs. When I leaned forward I felt something like small shocks in the lower part of my hips. Later the numbness and tingling started. I believe this to be drug related. Most of my symptoms are listed under kerlone, Betaxolol is a generic of this drug. Some of the symptoms were under Betaxolol also. My medical doctor diagnossed the numbness as a pinched nerve. Has anyone had an experience like this after taking a drug? The tests I had were the usual blood work up, a CT of the head, MRI of the head, EKG, and a doppler of the carotid artieries. I think I will go to the medical doc for the xray he recommended, then maybe try a chiropractor. Any other suggestions?
