Dear, Heart attack symptoms typically follow a classic pattern. This list includes several common signs and symptoms of heart attacks. The person does not need to have every symptoms told here to be having a heart attack, but if two or more of the symptoms are present then it is important to call emergency. Chest Pain The most common and regularly documented symptom of a heart attack is chest pain.The pain can feel like anything, but usually is dull or aching.Heart attack chest pain is usually very steady. It doesn’t typically increase or decrease with movement or palpation (touching or pushing on the chest). It likely will come on suddenly, without warning. Chest pressure Pressure or heaviness in the chest can be independent of chest pain, but often goes together. Pain in the arm, neck or jaw Shortness of Breathing Most often, pressure in the chest makes the person feel as if he or she is being suffocated.Heart attacks can also cause fluid in the lungs, which leads to severe shortness of breath. Sweating Heart attacks cause stress on the heart and it tells the brain, which leads to the “fight or flight” stress response. Nausea Like sweating, nausea is a very common response to stress. Fatigue The same decreases in blood flow that can lead to passing out or trouble breathing also cause fatigue. Syncope As a heart attack progresses, damaged heart muscle leads to a loss of blood pressure and decreased blood flow to the brain.

Even though your cholesterol is within normal limits, so if you occasionally want to consume Alcohol you may, but limit it to 30-60 ml and don't make it a routine habit, let it remain occasional. Also don't binge drink. Alcohol can lead to increase in Triglyceride and cholesterol levels, so in case you are taking medication at present and start occasional drinking, then repeat your Lipid profile after 2-3 months, to see if the lipid levels have worsened or if you need any dose change.

Stop pant d and modify your eating habits. Take kitchen remedies for good digestion-ginger, garlic, jeera, heeng, ajwain and eat according to your constitution. Exercise to digeat food and avoid gas forming acidic foods with more oils and spices. Do eat regularly. Regarding skipping heart beats and av block, get in touch with your doctor -may be you need a pacemaker which is highly advanced these days-as smal as a capsule and fitted like angiography test.

Physiotherapy very important. If brain cells are permanently damaged recovery is unlikely. However she is lucky to be walking. Rehab very essential.

Donating blood reduces chances of heart attack

One should donate blood at least once in a year. Donating blood regularly has been shown in many reports to reduce chances of future heart attacks. Blood donation is also one of the best charities that one can do as it can save multiple lives through various components taken out of a single blood transfusion.

All those who are going for elective surgery should donate their blood well in advance and the same should be used at the time of surgery.

In the current medical tourism scenario, many patients who are Jehovah?s Witnesses refuse blood transfusion on religious grounds. They do not accept transfusion of whole blood or any of the four major components (blood cells, platelets, plasma and white cells). They are prepared to die rather than receive the blood. They also do not accept transfusion of stored blood including their own due to the belief that blood should not be taken out of the body and stored for any length of time. In such cases, every effort should be made to reduce blood loss, conserve blood and give drugs that can enhance hemoglobin formation.

A new concept called Bloodless Medicine has now become a reality where treatment, surgery and even emergency surgery can be done without using any blood.

The prostate is a small gland found only in men, located in the pelvis, between the penis and bladder. It's involved in the production of semen. If the prostate becomes enlarged, it can place pressure on the bladder and urethra (the tube through which urine passes). This can affect how you pass urine and may cause: difficulty starting urination, a frequent need to urinate, difficulty fully emptying the bladder You may opt for Unani medicine that is time tested remedy for chronic disease.

If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6.

If it is migraine you have to take migraine prophylactic drug after consulting neurologist 9. Consult me for further advice.

DearLybrate user, A number of conditions can cause a rapid heart rate, anxiety and chestpain symptoms. It's important to get a prompt, accurate diagnosis and appropriate care. I would suggest please get a Normal ECG and Cardiac stress test done to rule out heart condition first.
