Feeling Weird

Recommended Posts

I have been very bloated all week. Gastroparesis is giving me a hard time. On liquids but hard cause of nausea and pain.

Today I was feeling weird, heart felt funny, pain in chest and back, nausea , was shaking. So checked BP and it was 141/120 and heart rate was 78. Have checked it a few times since then and it is staying around 110/70 but heart rate is higher...86.

Still feel funny.

I was told on a facebook dys. page that when there is less than 30 points between the two numbers that could be serious and may need to go to the ER.

Anyone else know what this may mean?

I believe that would be considered a "narrow pulse pressure" not uncommon in POTS. You can find more discussion about it in the forum if you do a search.

Here is one discussion:

Thanks for helping me with this. Is this serious? I feel so lost right now. With this and the gastroparesis, I have so much going wrong. Is this something that warrants calling my cardiologist or going to the ER?

I almost always have less than 30 points between the two numbers, but this has been cleared by a doctor in my case so if its new you probably should be seen. I don't know how serious this could be in other people because I always have it, but I can say there are definitely cases where it is not bad based on my own experience. But you still might want to go to the ER, listen to your body definitely

If you are ever concerned about new symptoms it is a good idea to call your doctor and see what s/he thinks. I have certainly done that and found it to be helpful for peace of mind or for advice. I think if you look at past posts you will see other patients here experience narrow pulse pressure.

If you are having a hard time eating and drinking, your increased symptoms could be from dehydration. I agree that discussing with your doctor is a good idea. You might need to get some IV fluids in you.

Thanks everyone. I think I am dehydrated again. I can't seem to stay hydrated. So hard with the nausea and pain. I am going to call my dr. in the morning.
