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?
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years 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.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
