Male 32 years old.. hypertension. Taking Metoprolol, Lisinipril and Zoloft (anxiety and panic)
About 2 weeks ago I went to the doctor because I was getting bouts of dizziness, he took blood which said all came back okay, but now I am noticing over the last efw nights that when I am trying to go to sleep, I will have a muscle in my leg spasm, or my arm move a bit. I also go out to my car in the afternoon to try and take a nap during lunch and it happens there to. It is not a whole body jerk, but it either my arm, or my leg or shoulder. I suffer from panic and anxiety so this has consumed me for the last couple of days.

I apprecite your response, but that really was not the information I was looking for, which may be my fault.
My dizziness sometimes happens when I stand.. It lasts just for a second or two, but again it is concerning. The body spasms have stopped, but the dizziness is still concerning especially when I stand up from sitting at my desk. Does this sound like something serious? Could this be a brain tumor?
The anulom vilom will send extra oxygen to the brain and your dizziness will reduce gradually.
Do the pranayam and you will get your health back, and the need for medication will reduce gradually. Very natural and no side efects, only side benefits. So give it a try for at least 4 months, and then continue for life, once a day.
