What causes dizziness and BP level of 143/92?

I have been getting dizziness in the mornings 3 or 4 times over the past month. I just got my blood pressure checked out and I am 143 over 92. I am at least 40 pounds overwieght. Additionally, I have developed some kind of rash around my neck, upper torso and forearms.

Dizziness early in the morning is due to 2 main factors:
- hypoglycemia
- spondyloarthrosis

Blood pressure of 143/92 as you are taking medication won't be a problem.

Should check fasting blood sugar along with blood pressure and record the results.

With regards to the rash, I need to have a look myself so I kindly ask to send a picture in.
For the moment, I think it might be an allergy issue, and could also be a possible cause of dizziness you experience.

Take oral antihistamine you find over the counter.
If not improved, should see your caring doctor.

Wish fast recovery.

I am taking amlodipine since Sept 9 this year but recently my blood pressure is elevated. I had hip surgery in August but BP was okay but recently spiked various time of the day and I am doing 4 readings since I had low sodium level but fine now. I am alarmed about the high BP i.e. 173/92 or 176/110. Yet other times it will 144/94 or 155/89. What causes this as I did not have issues when I was on Verapamil for several years. I was switched to amlodipine cause it did not affect my heart rate. I always had low heart rate but was told the new medication does not affect the heart rate. Advise why a spike in BP? I advised my doctor but haven t heard back yet

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...(To preface, my son has an egg allergy and has been unable to get a lot of the vaccines given to children at his age.) My 18 month old son has had a fever varying from 101 - 103 Monday thru Wednesday night. It has been controlled by alternating tylenol and ibuprofen. I took him last night to our after hour clinic to be sure it wasn t an ear infection. Ears looked fine, but his lymph nodes were swollen and his throat was red - Strep test came back negative. Said it was probably a virus. He woke up this morning with no fever, so I assumed the virus had taken it s course. However, this evening, I have noticed a rash on his belly, back and neck. they are small red bumps that aren t raised very much. They don t seem to be bothering him too much. I hate to take him to the doctor again if it s nothing, but I don t want to ignore something if it s potentially dangerous for him. Should we give him Benedryl? Should we take him to the ER tonight or wait to talk to my doctor in the morning?
