    We have found weight/strength training with atenolol to be problematic
    in some individuals in terms of dizziness, rapid strength loss (mid set
    and mid rep); be careful.

    I lift three days a week, hard and my heart rate is 50-52.

    I'm a diabetic, 66 years old and I also cycle three days a week, about 10 to
    20 miles at 66 cadence with a 12 mph average speed.

    BP is around 110/65 10 minutes after a workout or ride.

    Get off your butts kids and lets go.

    Thanks, I read about this earlier today. I actually had to stop the beta
    blocker the other day not because of what I read, but because I had a
    rebound problem after taking it.. after a few hours my blood pressure and
    heart rate would shoot much higher than before.

    Now with that said, I think I know what the problem is and the mayo clinic
    endocrinologists will see me Tuesday. I have a DO doctor who has me on
    testosterone cream and arimidex to lower my estrogen. My latest blood test
    showed my estrogen is almost undetectable. I read this can cause anxiety and
    high blood pressure. I also read testosterone replacement can cause anxiety
    if predisposed for it (something about GABA).

    Further, I read that being over medicated on thyroid hormone can cause
    anxiety and hypertension because it causes the adrenal glands to store and
    release too much adrenaline. All this stuff adds up with how I felt. I
    skipped three days of thyroid hormone, testosterone and arimidex and I'm
    feeling much better. Blood pressure was never over 140/80 today and is
    usually around 120/70 with pulse at 75. As a matter of fact, these spells
    I've been having correlate 100% with the arimidex pills. I was told to take
    them three times a week, and the next day.. I felt miserable each time. I'm
    still having headaches and dizzy though.

    Thanks - will update after I see the mayo clinic endocrinologists.

    That's pretty good - keep it up but don't overtrain. I'm 32 years old and I
    have seen 90 year old men run circles around me. A year ago I was lifting
    60k lb every other day (1 foot lifts), running 5 miles, etc. blood pressure
    was 110/65 and I felt great at 7% bf. Then all of a sudden, I went down the
    tubes.. lost 35lb of muscle mass (or water) last year and haven't even been
    able to run on a treadmill since. What happened? I think I fell victim to a
    bad endocrinologist who messed me up with inadequate hormone replacement
    (low thyroid, low testosterone, etc.). Going to the mayo clinic Tuesday..
    hope to get my health back but at the moment I look like a concentration
    camp survivor.

    """"AS NEEDED"""!!!

    Absolutley... going to do a fresh restart on my health at the mayo clinic.

    > Sounds like you like being sick.


    Couldn't be further from the truth. There are two people who depend on me
    and need me to remain alive and healthy.. who in fact have more health
    problems than I have.

    That's part of the problem.

    Damn, hope they help.

    I have an account at Mayoclinic.com and I keep up to date on "stuff".
