Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thanks for your question
What exactly you felt while being dizzy, unsteadiness or spinning sensation?
Was there any nausea, vomiting, sweating etc
visual disturbances, palpitations?
please reply to the info
I felt disoriented I guess you would call it. The room wasnt spinning or anything like that. I was nauseated and my vision didnt feel right. It wasnt blurred although in the past this has happened and was accompanied by blurred vision. I still feel a little sick and I dont know if I feel unsteady or what it is but I feel different. My mouth is still dry feeling too.
What is your blood pressure and pulse?
a good way for me to describe what I was and still am feeling is a feeling as if I just got off a ride at the fair that spins you in cirlces.
Do you have any hearing loss and ear ringing?
106/48 is my bp right now
pulse is 59
I dont have any hearing loss or ear ringing
Do you have any diagnosed medical condition ?
Are you taking any medications?
is my bp ok?
no its not
i am coming towards that, just trying to know why its so
first of all i would say that your BP is low
what does that mean
The diastolic one is quite low
Even pulse is on lower side
is that why I feel different right now because of my bp
Normally it should be around 120/80
so does this have any indications of diabeties
or what do you think
what should I do
Your first blood sugar level was a fasting one
what does that mean fasting
means you were empty stomach or you have eaten something before that
I didnt eat anything this morning because I woke up feeling so bad. I last ate at 10:00 pm or so.
your blood sugar of 129 was high
but this doesnot mean that you have diabetes
for confirmation of that either you have to check it regularly to maintain a record
why would it have been so different the 3 times I took it.
one reading empty styomach in morning and other reading 2 hour after lunch
what about my bp what would cause it to be off
For best confirmation you can have HbA1c test to see how was the blood sugar control over the last 3 months
Well can be due to not eating and drinking
Do you feel some missed beat feeling?
This morning I was scared because I felt so weak and I found it harder to take breaths
I think at one time I had a tense feeling but maybe I didnt, I know I havent had any real chest pain.
Ok thanks for your input
I will suggest that eat something and drink plenty of fluid
and see if your BP rises and pulse rises too
but i would suggest that if the symptoms donot settle soon , go to ER
because its the low pulse which is bothering me
What I dont understand is why I woke up feeling like this. I didnt even have time to eat breakfast, usually the average person eats before bedtime then when they wake they eat breakfast. So i didnt really skip breakfast, I was already sick.
Yes that was the only possibility , very remote one
You cheked your blood pressure at home with a devise?
what was the only possibility?
yes I used a home device. should i try it again.
Low blood pressure can be due to heart problems, endocrine problems like blood sugar levels related problem, dehydration etc etc
There are many causes
Can you check it again and let me know
101/50 is bp and 62 is my pulse now
The diastolic one is still very low
what do you think is wrong and what should I do?
I suggest that you should drink lot of water and other drinks and if the symptoms doesnot settle see your doctor
Cause needs to be investigated as i said because the blood sugar lervels you are having at not that high to affect blood pressure problem so not seems to be related
If you get better with drinking water and eating then we can label it with dehydration
but if not then an EKG will be required to rule out heart related problems
so low bp can be from dehydration
Yes it can be
But in that case pulse should be high and your ones is low so thats why i thought of getting heart related problems investigated
Do you want to ask anything else?
well I guess all I can do right now is eat and drink and see if I get better
If I dont get better throughout the day what would you recommend
i would recommend to go to ER to get yourself examined and investigated
And i would recommend an earlier visit

I was trying to think of anything else there might be
ok please let me know, i am waiting for you
do you think that its probably not my blood sugar or not sure
i am sure that its not your blood sugar

ok thank you
i will be notified and i will reply
you are most welcome
get well soon
I just took my bp again and its at 118/58. I have been drinking water and havent eaten a lot, part of a bowl of soup. So should I go to the hospital or just eat more.
Ok if you are still having the symptoms then i think you should go. Because these symptoms should not be there if the BP has removed but if they are here then you should go.
