Heat exhaustion high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Heat exhaustion high blood pressure

heat

About a month ago I completed a 2-hour, 40 mile bike ride in the summer heat & humidity and suffered severe heat exhaustion which included nausea, dizziness, extremely high rate, dehydration, etc. Ever since that time it seems by body has become extremely intolerant to high heat & humidity. Just being out in the heat in a sedentary manner causes my heart to beat out of my chest and I end up extremely dizzy & lightheaded.
Other signs include a fast beating heart, fast breathing, blood pressure abnormalities, lack of sweating despite a high temperature, changes in consciousness, dizziness/light-headedness, headache and nausea, and fainting. As you can see, headache, nausea, and vomiting are signs of heatstroke.
Hi LuLu, As you know, I'm not DX with anything, and my blood pressure does run normal to low/normal, but I've had similar experiences due to heat exposure. Here's an old post of mine from when it first occurred. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Multiple-Sclerosis/Was-This-The-Uhthoffs-Phenomenon-Or-Something-Else/show/1275605?

Hi, I have high blood pressure too. What Bloke1981 has explained is entirely true. In april 2009 I was rushed to the ER for a rapid heartrate after eating, 133 bpm. After ondergoing several test I was diagnosed (may 2009) with mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. Since then I am on beta blockers, Nebivolol (Bystolic) for tachycardia. before that my resting heartrate was around 80/90. Now my heart rate is around 55-70.
Now after my baby I have been having high blood pressure for no reason! 160/110 they gave me shots to lower! But still don't know why it keeps going up. Lately the heat in my back-chest , light heade , some tingling and cooldness in my hands and feet, I feel sudden sharp pain in random places like my ribs, stomach, chest, leg.. For seconds and it goes away! When I sleep I can hear and feel my heart pounding! I tried searching my sysmptoms they're sooo many! I coudlnt find anything!
Had 3 hospitalizations for chest pains, palpitations and high blood pressure and 1 for heat exhaustion with elevated blood pressure in last 6 months. Trouble getting blood pressure down to a decent level without taking 4 blood pressure medications (Toprol 200mg, Cozaar 100mg, Norvasc 5mg, and Triam/HCTZ 5.25mg. My blood pressure stood at 196/120, now 145/90. I am also on Potassium Chloride, Aspirin, Diazepam, Crestor and Nexeum.
So will magnesium make low blood pressure lower if it reduces high blood pressure?
My dad had high blood pressure and has been on medication to lower his blood pressure for more than two years. But during this period, he had reoccurent fever, which is very high. When he has fever, he shakes like crazy and can barely move. The past few days he ended up in the emergency room and the doctors gave him some antibiotics. Eventually the fever went away and he is fine now. The thing is all his test,such as blood, urine,CT scan and all the other tests failed to reveal any abnormal.
Also, had high blood pressure 135 over 100 at the same time and slightly abnormal EKG at that time, but have done testing since then and heart is ok except for tachycardia, which I have had since my Graves, despite treatment. Dr. feels that blood pressure was a response to pain/stress and that it caused the abnormal EKG (stress test was normal). Rheum labs continue to be normal except for the slightly elevated RH factor (15). Thyroid TSH was a little low now (4.
they took my blood pressure and it was a little high, but not too high. By the time i got to the ER my heart was beating like normal. I know i over did it, but i seem to be heat sensitive and i always dread the summer??? I dont have medical ins... I did have an operation for a hysterectomy and my heart did ok...???

I know i am out of shape but was curious to how the heat affects my heart??? Is this heat exhaustion that has made me heat sensitive??? I am a hot natured individual and dont tolerate heat very well.

I'm 28 years old, male, not overweight, exercise religiously, blood pressure normal, cholesterol levels good, etc. Over the last few months, I've been having some of the classic warning signs of diabetes - very frequent urination, somewhat increased thirst, extreme fatigue that no amount of sleep or exercise seems to relieve - but the blood glucose tests are coming back normal. Any idea what might be going on here?
Aafter an attack of high blood sugar and hhigh blood pressure, I have been having ppains all over my body esp my right sshoulder and back of my neck, and I eexperience slight headaches. Pls what iis wrong?
I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea and chronic rem sleep deprivation at 51. CPAP has elminated high blood pressure, use of statins, helped me lose 40 lbs, eliminated years of acid reflx and losec, night time urination. I could go on and on. All of this led me to ENT where I finally realized that I had a long term sinus problem that may play a significant role in the apnee. I use NeilMed sinus flood sinus rines twice a day and its a life saver.
This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.

I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
While reading this and other forums, why are there so many symptoms attributed to this disease? Dry skin, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sensitive eyes, exhaustion, muscle aches, depression, weight gain, hair loss etc, etc. How does a sluggish thyroid or lack of thyroid hormone affect so many different bodily functions?
Fainty feeling can be a result of low blood pressure which i have too. My dr says low is always better then high. Difference in bowel movement can be normal. Always drink lots of water no matter what. Its good for heat stroke and in general health too. Drinking lots of water will help with swelling during ur whole pregnancy too. Burning feeling in the lower stomach im not sure.
Since beginning Lotrel in 2007 I have had a recurrence of severe muscle pain and weakness. I also suffered heat exhaustion in 2006 and now cannot tolerate more than 6 hours in, 90degree plus, heat. I sometimes have night sweats, and chills. My feet are so painful that I take Advil to sleep. My doctor tells me that it is just aging. This is not accurate because otherwise I am perfectly healthy mentally and physically.
There could be various causes of dizziness including low blood pressure due to anemia, bleeding and dehydration, heat cramps, exhaustion, high blood pressure, cardiomyopathies, conduction discturbances,diabetes both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, endocrinal disorders like hyper and hypothyroidism, addison’s disease, vasovagal syncope, etc. since you had back issues, you need to be evaluated for a disc herniation at the cervical or thoracic spine level.
Vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and heat-related illnesses (for example, heat exhaustion or heat stroke) are common reasons a person loses a significant amount of fluid. Diuretics or water pills used to control high blood pressure are also another cause of a decreased amount of fluid in the body. Blood loss and other causes of anemia decrease the number of red blood cells that carry oxygen in the bloodstream, and this may lead to the symptoms of orthostatic hypotension.
Besides, this has happened twice before. Since then, I have intolerence to heat, slightly high blood pressure, borderline diabetes (used to be hypoglycemic, they say I'm not anymore!
Blood pressure was high for me, It's usually 115/80 ish it was 140/97 in hopsital, but went down and unchanging with standing etc. My thyroid levels are: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) 1.45 Thyroxine (T4), Free - Serum 0.8 Triiodothyronine (T3) Free - Serum 2.79 - May 17, 2011 thank you!
Dear Janicec, Toprol XL is an extended release form of metoprolol which is a beta-blocker.Beta-blockers are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
I have to agree with Lulu as it being neurological. Both heat exhaustion & Heat stroke result in high pulse rates but 68 is pretty much normal.
I have up n down or highs and lows with my blood pressure. They blame it on just took my pill a few hours ago before and it might not be in my system all yet/ Or they think it's my fault I have to watch what I eat more? could be? I try. Or they think I am having heart problems and even with this blood pressure pill? I'm again wearing a heat monitor and its for 21 days. I just started. I have had like I said high and low BP..
* Check on people who are at greater risk of heat-related illnesses, including children, senior citizens and people who are mentally or physically ill (especially those who are obese, or have heart disease or high blood pressure). Know the warning signs of heat-related illness and quickly seek medical care for any significant illness, Zane said.
96 and higher when standing or sitting but if I am laying down it rests at 70ish. My blood pressure does drop but not always systollically under 100 but the rest of my symptoms along with what feels to me as tachycardia and a dropping BP. I was just wondering if anyone knew what the qualifications were to get a diagnosis with Dysautonomia/POTS.
