How new is this?
In the last 4 days
Any med changes?
Have you seen the doctor about it?
Any other symptoms?
No....yes but not happy. No other sym.
What did the doctor say?
I see a too high blood pressure, low heart rate and too high respiratory rate.
Told her to see him in a week and if it goes to 200 Togo to the hospital
No med changes?
Wow...that is very surprising. Clearly she needs an adjustment of blood pressure to correct for that high BP and low heart rate.
I would also get an EKG to make sure heart is okay.
Finally a chest xray to rule out a lung process is in order with that high respiratory rate.
