Please visit a general physician especially since you r complaining of abnormal heart beat. The redness in eyes will go. Once the fever subsides. But yes. .do have a routine eye checkup done especially if you have not had one in last 2 years.

The next step would be to get a holter recording done. If he can make the fast heart beat come and go, it will be recorded and we can find a reason for it. Meanwhile, I would suggest you see a physician who will examine you and get some tests done. I can help you when you share the reports with me,

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to muscular or lung problem - avoid exertion, do not lift weight, exercise or bend too much - apply over the counter pain killer gel three times a day - take tab Paracetamol if pain is more for maximum of three tablets per day - if not much relief then do x-ray chest, ECG to know the exact cause, consult a doctor.

My son is 3.7 years old and having large vsd. And doctor said he is not opera-table so tell me what I have to do?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello large vsd can lead to pulmonary hypertension. In case of even large vsd with pulmonary hypertension I recommend to go for surgery till 9 months to 1 year of age. Till this age the pulmonary hypertension is usually reversible and improves over a period of time. After that one should go for o2 study or cath study before labelling the vsd as inoperable. I have seen many a case in which surgeons have refused to operate even when operability is there. I shall be better able to help you out if you send me the echo report or cath study if done. Regards.

You have a typical indian lipid profile with more triglyceride than cholesterol. Please mention your ldl and hdl level as well. You are hypertensive but non diabetic. So, I have to calculate risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease before recommrnding any medication. Meanwhile, you have to follow restriction of fats and oils. Fish oil is beneficial for you. Exercise regularly.

One month back my father having chest pain and fever. Blood samples analysed and Echo carried out. In that heavy pericardial effusion seen. For next 3 days water evacuated from chest and around 1000 ml water evacuate. Its sample analysed and ADA 63 reported in forms of tuberculosis and no malignant cells seen. CT scan also carried out. And tuberculosis treatment started. In start, His blood sugar increased to 450 and now its normal to 150-200. At present he is taking R Cinex and Benadon tablets. I want to know if this treatment is OK or should I walk to other doctors. I can share all reports if you need. Is there any chances of any other disease apart from tuberculosis. At present his right hand paining very much and its almost one month but he is still feeling weak.

Thanks for the question in our country tuberculosis is a common cause for pericardial effusion. As per the reports that you have provided your father's pericardiocentesis was done and fluid analysis was suggestive of tuberculosis (with high ada). The treatment he has been put on is fine. Presently, he is on rcinex and benadon, hence I presume that his initial intensive phase of anti-tubercular drugs is over. The management duration is usually 6-9 months in respondent cases. You can get a check xray chest done to note for the current status. I would advise you to continue with your present doctor since the treatment provided is as per guidelines of management. Regards.
