Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After going through the medical details provided by you i would like to tell you that your blood pressure and your pulse rate are well within the normal range.

As you have a history of kidney transplant so i would like to suggest you to get a Renal ultrasound done and also a blood test for Kidney function and Serum electrolyte levels evaluation to make sure things are going fine with the transplanted kidney.

Also its advisable to take the opinion of your nephrologist regarding this as these symptoms could be due to kidney dysfunction.

I hope this information will be helpful. Feel free to ask if you have any other queries.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
