What can cause stomach spasms, elevated blood pressure and high pulse rate?
Here are the recommendations.
I passed carefully through your question and would like to know if his heart rate is regular or not.
A cardiac arrhythmia could be the cause of this clinical situation.
His blood pressure values are within the normal ranges.
The femoral artery does not lie in this region. So, this situation is not related to the femoral artery.
If his heartbeat is irregular, or he is feeling shortness of breath, I would recommend going to the ER for a physical exam and some tests:
- A resting ECG
- Complete blood count for anemia
- Blood electrolytes for any imbalance.
Meanwhile, I would recommend having some rest and taking some deep breaths.
If he is feeling normal, I would recommend consulting with his attending physician for a routine check up including :
-A chest X ray study,
-A cardiac ultrasound and resting ECG
-An ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring to investigate for cardiac arrhythmia
-Complete blood count for anemia
-Thyroid hormone levels.
