This is Dr. David

you should get your thyroid hormone levels checked. hyperthyroidism can cause increased heart rate and also hot face and weight loss.

you should see a doctor and get some heart testing, EKG test, stress test and possibly some tilt table tests to check your baroreceptors

what is your blood pressure?

do you have a doctor you can see who can run some tests for you and do a full physical?

My bp was 200/17o when I took but just had my pe last week and my body usually us 120/80. Could this have something series.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

your blood pressure and heart rates were very high

you really should go to the ER and get checked

to find out why your heart rate and blood pressure were so high.

they can check for aneurysms and do an EKG to check your heart at the ER

and if your blood pressure is still high, they can start you on blood pressure medications.

You think it could be an aneurysm?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

chances for aneurysm are small

but best to get checked at the ER

avoid bending over for now.

do you have normal heart rate and normal blood pressure when you don't bend over?
