I started 5mg elequis yesterday. I am a 71 year

I started 5mg elequis yesterday. I am a 71 year old mail with afib. A couple of hours after taking my first dose I started feeling a kind of buzzing sensation in my head and it developed into a headache. I get migraines and take zomitriptan. Could this be a side effect of elequis?

My father got internal bleeding (black stool, low hemoglobine). Doctors made endoscopy and found a 5cm mass in his stomach. A later ultrasound endoscopy is suggesting it is a non cancerous GIST. They recommended surgical removal. My father is 71 years old, hypertensive, renal dysfunction, got some psychiatric issues and medications, and has a chronic constipation. Surgery seems very high risk. Are there other options? also, is it possible that diagnosis is wrong and it is not a GIST? would it make a difference or removal is the solution anyway?

I am 34yrs old, 5 8 , 196lbs. I went for a physical today on the campus of a junior college I am attending and was told that my blood pressure is 143/71. Is this high enough that I should see my Dr.? I have recently started a healthy diet plan (fruits, veggies, lean meats, whole grains) and running three days a week 2-3miles each day. Will this help bring it down without needing medications?
