Beta Blockers Making BFS Worse

Has anyone noticed taking a beta-blocker actually aggravates BFS? Within minutes of taking a 2.5 mg dose in the evening, I feel a significant increase in tingling of hands and feet and also twitching in both calves. I don't have peripheral artery disease or neuropathy.

If you have high blood pressure and impaired circulation in any part of the brain or nervous system, beta-blockers will impact blood flow, contributing to symptoms like twitching, in some cases caused by seizures, depending on what part(s) of the nervous system or brain are affected.
