I have mvp and OCD .Heartrate 90 temp around 37.3 celsius..Cant workout as it causes headache.What should I do?Was on propranolol for 1 year.

37.3=90.14 Fahrenheit: Your heart rate is still in the normal range. You are on zithromax for some sort of infection but your temperature is not bad at 90.1. Normal is 98.6 with fluctuations throughout the day. I know that you were on Propranolol before. If you are getting headaches while exercising then i would hold off on the exercising today.

If your heart rate goes over 120 or for any reason becomes significantly abnormal then you should contact your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ask the doctor: Speak with the doctor who prescribed the medication. If you mean really bad when you say not too good - go to an er. Here is a loooong list of side effects to help you decide if you need fast or slow help. I wish people could be better educated about their meds - the whys? Hows? And side effects and alternatives.
