Low Blood Pressure, Always Feeling Tired, Tightness And Fever At Night?
I am a 20-year-old woman with a height of 168cm and a body weight of 46kg, I always check my blood pressure is always 80/60 I always feel tired and unnatural tightness when walking for too long. I always have fever at night it’s 7 days but it’s normal in the daytime. Do I have to see a specialist for this case?
Hypotension / low blood pressure if the blood pressure is below 90/60 mmHg. Hypotension can be influenced by age, activity, sudden changes in body position, pregnancy, side effects of drugs, hormonal imbalances, heart disease, infections, dehydration, malnutrition, bleeding, and anaphylactic shock (severe allergic reactions).
Hypotension can cause some symptoms such as dizziness, dark eyes, nausea, vomiting, weakness, shortness of breath, and fainting. If you often feel complaints due to hypotension, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that you can be sure of your condition and if necessary can be given further treatment. Treatment will be adjusted to the cause of the hypotension.
Some tips you can do:
Get enough rest
Drink a lot of water
When you feel symptoms, immediately lie down with your feet higher than your heart
Avoid changing positions suddenly
Avoid lifting heavy objects
Eat foods that are high in vitamin B12, folic acid, contain lots of water, and occasionally eat more salty foods
As for the fever, do you measure your body temperature? Fever if body temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius. Fever can be caused by many factors, most often due to infection. Are there any other complaints? For example stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cough colds, ear pain, or sore throat?
Up and down fever for 7 days can be caused by dengue fever, malaria, typhus, tuberculosis, abscesses, leptospirosis, urinary tract infections, and hepatitis. Because the fever has been going on for 7 days, I suggest that you see a doctor directly (you can go to a general practitioner first or to an internist). The doctor will do an examination to ascertain the cause of the fever that you are experiencing if a blood test and a urine test are needed. Furthermore, the doctor can provide more appropriate treatment for you.
While waiting for the doctor, you can use fever-lowering drugs, drink plenty of water, warm compresses, and make sure you get enough nutrition.
Hope it helps you,
