All of a sudden my feet are sweating alot. They are very cold.

Resolved Question:

All of a sudden my feet are sweating alot. They are very cold. I have been having cold feet off and on for a couple weeks, but today they started sweating excessively. Never had this before. I also dont feel well. A little sick to my stomach... maybe heartburn type pain. No appetite. I am vacationing in Mexico. Been here 3 days. I was worried about heart attack because I googled sudden sweating and it came up.

My BP is 150/100, pulse 63

Dr. Shah :

Thanks you for the information. Based on your description, I don't see any obvious sign of heart attack at this time. Since you are under stress, it could be just a temporary issues and you may not experience in future. However, you you see any skin color change in your foot, or it becomes very cold, painful, then make sue to see a doctor.

Customer :

ok

Customer :

its cold but not unbearable

Dr. Shah :

In the mean time, you can take OTC antacid or prilosec for your stomach pain

ok

i was worried cause of excessive sweating and discomfort in my left arm (that went away now)

thank you

Usually heart attack does not linger for long hours......

2 hours something else would have happened?

I took one aspirin 2 hours ago too

should i pay attention to anything in particular?

Initially I was thinking about vascular problem, but you are not having any other signs....

Customer :

ok

Customer :

thats good news

Customer :

i never had cold feet like this beore. It's very odd

Dr. Shah :

That is why I suggested, if you see bluish color or severe pain in your foot, see your doctor...

Customer :

its not necessary to go to ER in Mexico, right?

You will have to watch for new symptoms at this time...
