Blood testing can diagnose hypoglycemia at the time of symptoms or a few hours after eating a carbohydrate load. Discuss with your MD. ...Read more

Dizziness, blured vision and rapid heart beat while exercising. Heart beat during rest is 89-100bpm blood pressure 117/84. Is it normal?

Discuss w doc: One expects a physiologically appropriate increase in heart rate with exercise. This could be magnified if your volume state is low (intravascular dehydration). Symptoms of dehydration coupled with the normal sympathetic stress of activity could explain this--but if you are still symptomatic after assuring adequate hydration you should see a cardiologist for monitoring/echo-stress study. ...Read more

You need a complete physical exam including serology and hormone levels as well as pregnancy test and mental health eval for anxiety and depression. If you take drugs (MJ) or smoke, drink alcohol or are obese or inactive, you will be negatively effected and may develop symptoms as you've described. ...Read more

Been on Lisinorpil for at least a year, nose, between eyes skin flaking and reddish is this from Lisinorpil also chestpain rapid heart beat upon exer?

Likely unrelated: The rash between your eyes is likely unrelated to Lisinopril. The tachycardia (fast heart beat) could be due to a low blood pressure from the Lisinopril. However, the chest pain is concerning. Since you have not provided much information about the chest pain, I would suggest that you see a medical provider ASAP for further evaluation. ...Read more
