Weak : Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more

Weakness: Your symptoms desire to be investigated further to determine their cause. You had a resting rapid heart beat. Was it regular or irregular? You low BP could have been caused by your heart beating either fast or irregularly. Go to your physician or a cardiologist and get evaluated for the cause of your rapid heart rate.

Yes: The strength of your pulse is often unrelated to the actual blood pressure. This variance is even greater as we age. The intensity of the pulse can also be affected by thyroid disease, anemia, aortic regurgitation and exercise. Also, the farther you are from the heart, the less the pulse accurately correlates with the heart's output. So, the neck pulse correlates better than the wrist pulse. ...Read more

I had a d&c because i miscarried, im low in my blood and I am anemic, am i going to be ok? I feel weak and my heart pulse is 112.

I had a d&c because i miscarried, im low in my blood and I am anemic, am i going to be ok?  I feel weak and my heart pulse is 112.

Anemia: You are anemic, another name for a low blood count. The blood you lost with the miscarriage may be more than you thought. That you feel weak sounds normal. That your pulse is 112 BPM is higher than normal. Follow your doctor's instructions and look for warning signs that you need to be seen again. To help yourself, push fluids such as gatorade. ...Read more
