Sir. In my stomach always pain in right side at that time pain in heart. What is that problem sir? I check my stomach with many doctor but I am not right.

Right side of abdomen has liver on upper area. Get an ultrasound of abdomen done. Regarding your heart pain, remember that every pain on left side of chest need not be due to heart. You are a growing up teenager at 18 and slightly overweight also. Eat a healthy diet with lots of simple proteins like toned milk, less fats and more seasonal fruits and vegetables. Get checked for basics like blood for sugar and total lipids, ecg & halter test. Get back here with reports.

Sir I am 22 yr. My height is 155 cm. Can I improve height? How to increase cholesterol? Please help me.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

If you confirmed have high BP, then you may have been prescribed medication to control same. Few tips to help you: Eat more vegetables and fruit. Stop packaged foods as they have hidden salts, preservatives that harm. Make sure you get adequate exercise and rest. Yogasana will help regulate metabolism and even bring BP back to normal. Rest in a way that you wake fresh and happy in mind. Make sure you hydrate properly. Not drink 2 liters in the morning, but one glass every 60 to 90 mins so your body is evenly hydrated. Stay away from situations that will disturb you. Learn acupressure as a 'self help' modality. Stay positive and happy. At your age, it is possible to ring BP under control and not be drug dependent. This of-course has to be followed life long. Regards.

This gas problems are multifactorial like related diet, sedentary lifestyle, stress, gastritis, indigestion. So low calorie high fibre diet, exercise, yoga, leaving addiction apart from medicine can cure it.

General Physician,
Alternative Therapies Lower BP
A group of experts has reviewed all the existing studies and concluded that indeed there are alternative treatments for lowering blood pressure, with aerobic exercise leading the pack as far as strong evidence goes.
Other alternative treatments ? namely isometric handgrip and dynamic resistance exercises and guided breathing ?? also got high grades when it came to reducing high blood pressure in some patients, according to a scientific statement from the American Heart Association published online in the journal Hypertension.
"The evidence is not as strong for transcendental meditation and acupuncture, but they may help as well," said co?senior author Sanjay Rajagopalan, MD, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Ohio State University School of Medicine in Columbus.
For the report, an expert panel headed by the University of Michigan?s Robert D. Brook, MD, reviewed 1,000 studies published from 2006 to 2011. They divided the studies into three major classes of alternative treatments: behavioral therapies, noninvasive procedures and devices, and exercise. The panel did not review dietary and herbal treatments. Based on the level of evidence, they gave each an "A," "B," or "C" recommendation ?? with "A" being the highest ?? for implementation into clinical practice.
The panel found:
Exercise?based regimens did the best overall, with dynamic aerobic exercises getting an "A" class of recommendation, with a level of evidence of I, the highest possible.
Dynamic resistance exercises got a "B" and isometric handgrip exercises got a "C" grade, with levels of evidence of IIA and IIB, respectively.
Still, 4 weeks of isometric hand grip exercises resulted in some of the most impressive improvements in several studies ?? a 10% drop in systolic and diastolic BP. However, isometric exercise should be avoided among people with severely uncontrolled hypertension (180/110 mm Hg or higher).
In Noninvasive procedures or devices, device?guided breathing got a "B" with a level of evidence of II. Device?guided slow breathing proved most effective in lowering blood pressure when performed for 15?minute sessions three to four times a week.
Acupuncture also got a "B," but its level of evidence was III, meaning no benefit.
Among behavioral techniques, transcendental meditation and biofeedback both received "B" grades, with IIBs for levels of evidence. Yoga got a C, with level of evidence of III, or no benefit, as did other meditation techniques.
The alternative approaches that work reduce systolic blood pressure by only 2 to 10 mm Hg; whereas standard doses of a blood pressure?lowering drug reduce systolic blood pressure by about 10 to 15 mm Hg.
Alternative approaches are best for patients with blood pressure levels over 120/80 mm Hg who can?t tolerate or don?t respond well to standard medications.

After a heart attack in May I was prescribed, amongst other things, 40 mgs of atorvastatin daily as a precaution. My consultant cut it down to 20mgs in September as cholesterol levels seemed fine and I have no further appointments to see the consultant. Latest blood test showed my cholesterol.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Please control cholesterol by diet only. Avoid statins because of long term side effects. Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar does bring down cholesterol. But you seem to be having near normal levels. Don't cut down good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts. We do require good fats like a car requires good oil for machinery to run smoothly.

The pain is not continuous, only comes while taking breath or bending the abdominal forward. Please suggest. Pain is acute but not much high intensity. I am 28 year old Male.

General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, - As your pain is there on movement of the abdomen it could be due to soft tissue & muscular problem of the abdominal wall - do not strain, bend or do any abdominal exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation of the area 2-3 times a day - apply pain relief gel twice a day, do not rub apply lightly - if pain is more then take a pain relief tablet after meals.

Yes lybrate-user, you should do all the standard investigations of chest X ray, abdominal sonography, blood test, Hb1aC, ECG. Liver function, renal function and BP tests to determine what is the root of the problem. It is better to know the issue before experimenting with treatments. If you have cervical pain, you need to correct your back muscle strength and bone strength with posture correction.

Please do proper investigation especially for spine, brain, shoulders to find cause of vertigo. Sometimes it is undigested food causing severe gas that can also cause such feelings. Proper investigations first.
