Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Diabetes is associated with multiple complications regarding almost all systems of our body.
Few complications of long lasting diabetes may occur irrespective of your blood sugar status (whether controlled or not).
With the available described symptoms, there appears to be possibility of gastrointestinal complications of diabetes.
Long lasting diabetes may cause autonomic system dysfunction with decreased gastrointestinal movement and persistent feeling of nausea and vomiting.
Decreased gastrointestinal motility may also cause abdominal bloating, abdominal heaviness, excessive flatulence and halitosis.

Sudden rise of blood pressure, sweating could also be part of autonomic dysfunction.
As such there is no correlation between blood sugar and described symptoms as your blood sugar level was normal.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ endocrinologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should remain in touch with your treating doctor regarding blood pressure status and gastrointestinal symptoms.
You should also go for Electrocardiography (ECG), coronary angiography as you have started developing complication regarding diabetes and you are at high risk for heart related complications also.

You should take antihypertensive medications, if necessary.
You should take small amount of frequent meals.
You should take low fat high fibre diet.
You should also take prokinetics for improvement of your symptoms.

Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

1. You have not said anything about the unsteadiness part.Is it due to diabetes or related to BP and what should i do to avoid this unsteadiness. 2.Are you advising that i should take the medicene prescribed by you and if so in what doses and what time. 3. Since you are the specialist of XXXXXXX medication where will you be available.Where are you based ? If u are in Delhi i certainly would want to come to u.

Unsteadiness appears most likely due to diabetes complication.
Unsteadiness is a broad term and has many causes. Unsteadiness may be due blood pressure fall, inner ear pathology, cerebellum vascular pathology, nervous system dysfunction.
Exact diagnosis can only be made only after clinical examination.
You can take Itopride 150 mg/ Levosulpiride 75 mg (both are prokinetics) 30 minutes before breakfast once in a day.
I am practicing physician in Kullu, XXXXXXX pradesh, India (Not in delhi).

30 minutes after a run yesterday, that i did not feel was extremely stressful. my heart felt out of rhythm and i was coughing. i felt like the cough was to get it back in rhythm, is it? i am a 50 year old female, have high blood pressure and am about 40 # overweight. i have had a EKG and stress test w/ultra sound and everything is normal.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.
