Feeling hot and sweaty, chest pressure, nausea, rapid heart beat. What can this mean?

My name is Magdalena I m a 34 year female. I didn t feel good for most of the day but around noon I felt worse, I got very hot and sweaty, it felt like I had a lot of pressure in my chest and I felt extremely nauseated , while driving I felt very sleepy and it was difficult staying alert! I also felt a very rapid heart beat, although I had no way of checking my blood pressure . I feel a little better and my blood pressure is at 96/66. What can this mean? Please help, thank you!

Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

These symptoms can occur in many conditions.
But the BP is borderline low.
Do you have fever, urinary complaints like UTI?
Do you feel better lying down? are you dizzy when getting up from lying down position?
Any habits/ alcohol/ drugs?

Though no specific diagnosis is indicated right now, it could be indicative of some infection or even menopausal syndrome (if you feel you are approaching menopause).
Be watchful, take rest and see if anything worsens. get checked up/ write back if anything new develops.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!

Hi Magdalena,
All the complaints that you have mentioned indicate a few things:
1. Many times because of low blood pressure these of complaints are seen. BP 96/66 indicates a low blood pressure. The normal level of BP is 120/80mm of Hg. In future anytime if you feel similar complaints drink lime water adding salt into it. salt will increase the sodium levels in your blood and water will be retained maintaining your BP.
Check your BP regularly and if you find its on lower side always and similar complaints are seen then regular intake of butter/pickle will help you.
2. Looking at your age 34 and being female there are less chances of you having any heart complaints because females are naturraly protected from heart diseases because of oestrogen.
But still seeing the complaints you had get and EKG done from doctor for confirmation.
3. Such kind of complaints are also seen in anaemia which is commonly found in females. Check your haemoglobin levels if possible or check the paleness of your nails, eyes etc.
If your HB is low have lots of fruits, jaggery, beet, spinach, dates, chicken liver in your diet alomg with iron supplements.
I hope this answer will help you.
Wish you a good health.
