Can high BP and gastritis cause nausea and dizziness?
It is like my head has pressure with slit dizziness. I performed a few physical activities, but now I need to lay down. Rick age 67
So where does my answer come?
Various possible reasons
Your symptoms like nausea without fever then this is probably due to gastritis, acid reflux or H.pylori infection. So, I would recommend that you take a test for H.pylori infection.
Meanwhile, take Metoclopramide (Primperan) every eight hours to relieve this sensation together with Omeprazole once daily for the next 2-3 days.
As for the sense of pressure in your head and the dizziness, this could be due to high blood pressure or sinusitis.
So, I would recommend that you measure your blood pressure at first and if found normal, take an antihistaminic like Levocetirizine once daily before going to bed for the next 2-3 days.
Hope I have answered your query.
