Dizziness, Difficulty Breathing, and a Distended Stomach
I have been experiencing the following symptoms: Dizziness, Difficulty Breathing, and a Distended Stomach. Most often I wake up in the middle of the night finding it hard to breate, as though I can't get a full deep breath when I inhale. My heart begins to speed up and I'm dizzy. Also, it looks like I'm pregnant, in that my stomach is very distended, and very hard. My neck and face get red. I have gone to the emergency room once and called 911 also, thinking it might be my heart. But my EKG is fine. I take Lipitor (10mg once a day), Toprol (50 mg twice a day), HCTZ (25mg once a day), and Wellbutrin XL (150 mg once a day). I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. My cholesterol is under control but my blood pressure sometimes spikes. I just having been feeling like myself and I'm getting worried that something's going on that is hidden. Do you have any ideas what might be going on?
