ringing in the ears

I have recently come off blood pressure meds because of weight loss.(about 2 -3 weeks ago) I know my body is adjusting, but I get palpitations and/or that "flluttery feeling" quite often. Also, I can hear my heart beat in my ears. Is that the same thing as "ringing in the ears". It is very annoying. Comments, please.

This article describes the side effects of hypertension and include irregular heart beat and "pounding in ears".

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

Did you check in with your doctor before discontinuing the medication? If not, please do check in and make sure you discuss these new symptoms. There might be a medication you can try that doesn't have the side effects that caused you to stop earlier.
