My blood pressure just checked 98/56 with a pulse rate of 107. I ache a lot and have indigestion with some faintness and a cold sweat. Fatigue. I have slept all day.Had some diarrhea. Indigestion almost feels like a blockage. Thoughts? Safe?
Greetings. Can you tell me some more about your medical history? Any prior abdominal surgeries? Any belly pain? What does your blood pressure typically run when you are feeling well?

BP is normally 130/ 90. Hernia repair. I began to feel like a sinus infection & lungs. I had an old rx of azithromcin 250 mg[discard after 12/7/09]. I took th first 2 of 6 last night; also-sertaline 100, lorazepam 2 mg, simcor 1000- 20 mg and generic zyrtec. I took 1 regular aspirin am 2 advil. Heart was checked wit nuclear stress and ultra sound about a month ago; fine!
Thank you for the additional information. When someone is having diarrhea and not vomiting or having abdominal pain, obstruction is less likely. Given your recent symptoms suggesting a sinus infection coming on and diarrhea, it is also possible that you are experiencing a viral illness which can cause symptoms all over your body. These typically do not require specific treatment besides having a light diet, drinking plenty of fluids to avoid further dehydrated. Dehydration is a potential cause of your elevated heart rate. Dehydration can be treated with increased fluid intake, especially a balanced electrolyte solution such as Gatorade or powerade.
