Heart rate usually 55bpm blood pressure 108/70 today it's 110bpm 129/96 with a pounding headache body pain conjestion stuffy nose chills and 99.1 temp?
Congestion: In this vignette there are a couple of key points. One is the bp and heart rate being lower in baseline. An increase in both + particular symptoms could mean a viral infection, in this case of the upper respiratory tract. Low grade fever. In this cases taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) is reasonable to deal with symptoms, also degongestants. A quick visit to your MD should take care of this quickly. Cheers C ...Read more
Tachycardia: Technically that is resting hr. Elevated hr with exercise would be appropriate compensatory tachycardia. Relative tachycardia can be found in patients with resting heart rate that is low and elevation by about 30 BPM above that. Not really tachycardia but behaves like it in person in that situation. ...Read more

Palpitation Sx: Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also found with abnormal hearts. ...Read more

7 yr old forehead cooler than rest if body, raised temp & heart rate has vomited once not responding to panadol (acetaminophen)?
Fever: With fever some parts of the body can be warmer/cooler than others. If panadol (acetaminophen) not working try ibuprofen. Fever can also cause elevated heart rate and breathing rate. May be just a stomach virus. Encourage fluids- sips often and not too cold or warm. If vomiting continues and cannot keep anything down, call your pediatrician.. ...Read more
Stomach virus heart rate at 100. Feel warm and weak no fever. Dr says EKG is fine and heart rate is just from body feigning virus?Is hr like this ok?
Yes: Heart rates vary under different circumstances, going slower when one is calm or sleeping, and faster under stress, anemia, fever, or when one is fighting an infection. These are normal bodily responses, and as long as EKG only shows fast heart rate there is nothing to be concerned about. The heart is not the issue- just responding. The underlying cause needs to be addressed. ...Read more

20 years old. Chest pain, especially when lying down. Pale, sweaty, lightheaded. Severe headache. Rapid heart rate that jumps around. ?
Scary: All symptoms point to a the fact that you are having some type of tachy-arrhythmia (fast abnormal heat rhythm). Given what you're describing, your body is not tolerating it very well so I suggest a trip to the closest ER or Urgent care center and would have another person drive or call 911. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Low grade fevers, tired weak shortness of breath on exertion over 1 week. Pcp says virus other thoughts ?
SOB bothers me.: When i say sob, i'm not referring to you or pcp. Rather the shortness of breath. All the others symptoms certainly could be viral illness, and should entirely resolve within three weeks. However, shortness of breath on exertion could be a problem if it was more than mild, which could be part of the fatigue and weakness that viral infection causes. If more than just mild, further evaluation needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lower than usual BP and heart rate. BP 95/65 normally 110/73. Heart rate 58 normally 78. Low iron. Lightheaded, blurred vision, dizzy. No cold or flu.
On any meds?: First thing I'd wonder about is whether you're taking a beta-blocker for migraines or mitral-valve prolapse or some other reason. Your symptoms are consistent with that. If not, something else is slowing down your heart, which would be no big deal if you had no symptoms. You should get this checked out in a TIMELY fashion. ...Read more

Gradually worsening chest pain over 48hrs, with history of productive cough over two months, precede by dry cough on n off over last year.
Chronic bronchitis: Your symptoms are consistent with chronic bronchitis. The chest pain may be related to this, but it may also be a separate problem that should be investigated by your healthcare provider. Chronic bronchitis can be due to environmental smoke or particulates; in the us the most common cause by far is from cigarette smoking. ...Read more

Fever and lethargy: That high a fever in a child is very worrisome. The skipping heart beats are probably related to the fever. While the fact that his fever goes down with medication - he should be evaluated. Make sure he is hydrated - plenty of fluids - pedialyte or gatorade (sports drinks without caffeine) or gelatin desserts or water/ice. A fever that high causes fluid loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Resting heart rate suddenly between 80-95 over the last week. Have mitral valve and anxiety but take atenolol?
Relaxation, diet: atenolol is a beta blocker which can interfere with many metabolic pathways including the conversion of T 4 to T 3 (thyroid). It is better to meditate, exercise (with caution), have a heart friendly diet (grass fed meats, organic produce, avoid gluten (which will wreck the gut leading to all sorts of autoimmune diseases and other diseases) and avoid GMOS. Cardiac risk factors include hi small LD ...Read more
