Is it time to panic?

Hello;

My Husband is not feeling too good. So far, it's not HE. We had to go out this afternoon and deal with a stressfull problem and he got weak and sick. He's laying down and keeps saying "I really don't feel too good". He's taken his lactulose, on time. But says his chest hurts a little and I took his blood pressure and it's a little low but not bad and his heart rate is normal - 70. I've given him until 6 to get to feeling a little better or we're going to the ER. He didn't argue which scares me all the more.

I don't want to over-react when he gets sick but we've been given no guidelines from the doctor.

Hi Booky

I think its best to get him checked out, hope he's feeling back to himself soon. x

Panic no, action yes. Any time one of you feels the need to get to the ER, trust your gut. If it's nothing you wasted time. If it's something ...

Thank you Mike and Weenell; He's feeling better, his little nap seemed to help. Still not 100% but much better.

He was told not to work, stress, strain or sweat. He did it anyway. I'm watching closely but no wild run yet.

Yes, keep us posted. But I know I go through stages of irritability and/or panic attacks that I can't really tell the source.

Thank You.

I can't say "he's fine now" but he recovered from that bad spell. Some days I wonder what kind of day he's going to have. Today seemed like a good day but ended with us worrying.

He's doing too much and it makes him sick.

We go minute to minute any more.
