Indigestion, stomach bloating, vomiting, fluctuating BP, high pulse. Digestion or heart related problems?

Hello Doctor, and thank you: During the night my husband felt indigestion, stomach bloating , then felt clammy. Made self vomit in order to feel better. Didn t help much until he vomited again about 1.5 hours later. Then felt much better. The part that seems worrisome to me is that just before vomiting the last time, we took his blood pressure . The blood pressure was OK (107/77), but the pulse rate was 92 or so--very high for him. After vomiting, the blood pressure was 132 over something (which I m thinking was probably related to having just vomited), and the pulse rate was 98--still concerning... He is 67 years old, and basically very healthy. He gets exercise several times per week. He does take blood pressure medication and has never had major problems w this. He did eat a large bowl of ice cream with fruit and liqueur on it within an hour of going to bed last night. Should I continue to be concerned about the high pulse rate along with these other symptoms? Is this set of symptoms suggestive of anything really bad--like heart attack or such? Thank you, XXXXX

Hi Catherine,

For a 67 year old healthy man, this is just a simple problem. It is just because of the overfilling of gas inside the body, nothing big to worry about. Normally, the gas will go down, but at certain time it will go upwards when these sorts of problems occurs viz high pulse rate and blood pressure or whatever.

So I kindly request you to consult your doctor for gas problems, ones it's gone out everything will be normal and there will not be any big issues such as heart attack or anything like that. But make sure he stays normal without any gas problems, because the more he stays like this with gas inside him there will surely be issues such as heart pain or it (the gas) may even get to the head which will become a serious problem.

So please consult a doctor and make sure you bring all those gas down from his body. He will be fit and healthy as always.

Thank you very much.
Best Regards,
Dr. A. Abdul Rahim
