Customer Question

I'm 58 years old, generally good health. I've been having sinus troubles for ~5 weeks, maybe a sinus infection. I walked 3 flights of steps this morning at 7:30 am. At the top I got light headed and felt my face flush. I've remained in that condition since (flushed face and light headed). Pulse is normal @60 and bp is 122/77. Any reason to worry? I have an apt with my Dr. tomorrow

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your blood pressure is low normal but yuor pulse is also low.

Pulse should be high as expected response from the heart when blood pressure drops or you have an infection.

persistent light headedness is also concerning.

Underlying heart condition should be ruled out.

Yes your symptoms can be due to the bacterial sinus infection.

You should go to the ER for a heart evaluation first.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
