    feeling crappy

    I was sick yesterday (diaeherra all day) today I am tired and lighthead. My blood pressure is 104/53 heart rate is 106. Is there something I can do to fix this?

    Should I be worried?

    My blood pressure is usually low NOT that low, and my heart rate is usually around 85-90. I am 25 year old female.

    Your heart rate increase & the diarrhea make me think of too much thyroid hormone. But your low b/p doesn't fit. You need to see a Dr. Make sure you are drinking enough fluids & getting enough potassium, salt & other stuff that gets low when you are having diarrhea. Fam

    Have you possibly ate something bad lately? Food poisoning is easy to pick up and so is an unbalance of the bacteria in your digestive tract. I also heard from my doctor last week that there has been a stomach virus going around.

    The reason your BP is low and your heart rate is high is likely because you're getting dehydrated. You probably also have a low grade fever causing the higher heart rate.
    If the diarrhea keeps up go to the ER or your doctor, get fluids and medication to help.

    Though personally I think 104/53 looks fine, that you feel bad probably has more to do with you being sick.

    Just a suggestion though, for you and anyone reading. If your diarrhea is bad and you've taken antibiotics in the last 2-3 months - tell them you've taken antibiotics. I forgot to tell them this in the ER a couple weeks ago and it resulted in me being improperly treated with more antibiotics which made me sicker.
