Hello!

I do not see reason from your history to need to call an ambulance at this point ...nothing seems emergent ...you don't feel well ...can you specify symptoms further ?

Yes your pulse and blood pressure are a bit high but not at any emergent type level ...

You feel shaky so do you feel anxious now ?

Any medical problems ? You are not diabetic or have reason to think you may be hypoglycemic?

No fever ? Chills?

What is your age ?

Any further details that may help?

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns or discussion

I Will be happy to get back with you

Best regards,

Dr. Bray

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 2 months ago.

Hello again,

Ok well part of it may relate to your anxiety ...

Stomach discomfort sounds that you may have some gastritis ...

You might try some Mylanta and perhaps an acid reducer for a week or so as a start ..

If ongoing discomfort then follow up with your doctor next week ..

That approach should help

It does not seem to me to call for immediate visit to ER now however

I hope that this is helpful for you

Let me know if I may be of further help

It seems also that you may benefit to treat anxiety if that is not now being treated

Best regards,

Dr. Bray
