Dizziness, light headed, high fever, vomiting, heart palpitations, high pulse rate. Treatment?

My 30 year old husband woke up this morning feeling lightheaded and dizzy. He broke into a high fever , but we were able to break the fever. He nearly passed out, but didn t. He came home and vomited and has noticed shortness of breath and heart palpitations when going up the stairs. We took his pulse and it was 112 resting. His blood pressure is 125/61. We contacted his doctor and he said it may be viral and we may want to go to the ER if his heart rate stayed high, but he didn t seem overly concerned. Any thoughts? Should we head to the ER?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Fever could account for the whole picture.
Keep the temperature under control by regular use of paracetamol for a day or two.
Heart rate of 112 is not alarming, in the absence of basic heart disease ia a young person / just need to watch

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
