Hello,

Possible causes may include Infection,Acute coronary syndrome.

Your blood pressure should be monitored.

Your current symptoms shouldn't be ignored and if possible see a doctor at ER ASAP.

Hydrate yourself with Oral rehydration solution.

Also take OTC Tylenol/Aspirin if you have.

Do gentle massage at back of neck.

Is it something I should worry about?
Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 9 months ago.

Your lightheadedness,blurred vision and fast heart rate indicate cardiac arrhythmia/acute coronary syndrome.

Swollen lymph nodes indicate infection.

So your blood pressure,pulse should be monitored.

Thyroid dysfunction should be ruled out as well.

In my opinion you should see a doctor at ER.

If you can monitor your blood pressure then let me know the values so I suggest you some self care measures.

Do you have stuffy nose,clogged ears,neck stiffness?

I would strongly advise you go to ER, as it seems you may have some form of cardiac arrhythmia. In fact it would be ideal to call an ambulance.

All you mf were wrong. I have a good heart... turns out I have lymphadenitis. This is load of crap. Would have better results with google.
