Hello,

Based on your symptoms, it is possible you may have got viral infection.

Viral infection tends to improve with time. Rest & fluids should be helpful.

Another possibility is underlying heart disease ( myocardial infarction) given your history of high blood pressure.

Chest pain & shortness of breath should also accompany with these symptoms.

Although viral infection is more probable, if you are not comfortable, then you should get your heart checked out.

No chest pains or shortness of breath. Feel like I could doze off very easily. Had an echo not long ago that should fine, Had a bout of chest pains about a month ago but they went away after drinking water.
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 8 years ago

Thanks for the additional information.

These symptoms are then likely due to the viral infection.

You should take rest for now.

If you do not see any improvement in next 24 hours, you should contact your doctor.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
