      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unknown until now
      I started to have palpitations early this yes due to anexity lead by bad life style habits..heavily smoking, drinking coffee 24/7 and working all day and night.....

      As a result, I have been taking nebilet 5mg on a daily basis for three months...

      Before my T onset by a week (21st of April 2015) ! I started to feel terrible pressure in my neck arteries, nose and head during my workouts.

      So does anyone have experienced the same or heard or believe that beta blockers might result in T ? Should I stop them ?

      My T is quiet tonal but not pulsative and I don't have any hearing loss or never issues as per the test results.

      I have read that beta blockers can cause pulsing T. Maybe they can cause the other kind, too. If so, there's a good chance it will get better if you stop taking them. Definitely talk to your doctor.

      I've had issues with my nerves and circulatory system, and breathing too, taking beta and alpha blockers. Calcium channel blockers work best for me to reduce my pulse, anxiety, and BP. I reported problems to my doctor since it can be dangerous to stop taking some medicine without the doctor's approval.
