Soreness in balls of feet, hand swelling, BP 144/95, heart racing

Recently, the last 3 days, I have had a tightness/soreness in the balls of my feet along with my big toe . Friday night I awoke to this same tightness and also mild swelling in my hands, specicifally the ring finger and pinky. It was to the point that I made my fingers raw trying to get my rings off but eventually they came off. I took my blood pressure and pulse and the pulse was normal but BP was 144/95 (Friday night). Saturday morning my BP was 141/89. Saturday night 126/95. Saturday night I also experienced a spell were my heart started to race for what seemed like too long but I would say it lasted about 2 minutes (I was awoken by it). I was told my a doc Saturday that it could be a virus and she would wait until Monday to decide if an MRI was needed but she wouldn t be surprised if shingles showed up either. Any thoughts?

Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand this it could be non specific type of complain and no need to worry about this certain medical history really help well in deciding what that must at least the question of forum is concern and that is information about age and gender which are missing here it is not easy to answer the medical query with very little information without the clinical examination but most of the time the age and gender are not given hare, hope this information helps you have nice day.
