Yes, one possibility is anxiety. You can manage anxiety and stress by several relaxation techniques. Exercise is also a form of mental relaxation. Anti anxiety drugs may be taken for short period if above measures do not work.

No nature has its own defence mechanisms to prevent a heart attack , mouth and nose shut but sneezing will give you oxygen.

No dear, it isn't due to low blood pressure. For that you start doing meditation and yoga everyday in morning before 8am for 10-15 mins.

Hi, ladies of your age are less likely to have ischemic heart disease, especially when there are no risk factors. The pain could be muscular or arising from the joints of your chest wall, a condition called costochondritis. You can have some pain killer ointments and avoid lifting weights with left hand.

Good morning Dr. While checking BP at any of the hospital or clinical institutions, it shoots to 166/98 with pulse higher than 100bpm. But in normal position, like at my home it shows as 124/78 with pulse rate less than 80. I can feel the sudden increase in heart rate while entering a hospital for myself / dear ones. Four years back one doctor prescribed telmisartan 40 mg OD for the same. I have taken the same for almost 6 months. Then discontinued because the BP reading was same during my hospital visits. During the month of March 17, gone for Ambulatory BP apparatus test. In that test average was 122/74. The higher limit (186/96) occurred once during the test (when my ECG done ). Is there any requirement to take any medicine Dr?

Hi Your problem is well explained by the last answer so I'll add some patient education points Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It is an eating plan that is based on research studies sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). These studies showed that DASH lowers high blood pressure and improves levels of cholesterol. This reduces your risk of getting heart disease. The DASH Diet Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Includes whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oils. Limits sodium, sweets, sugary beverages, and red meats. Along with DASH, other lifestyle changes can help lower your blood pressure. They include staying at a healthy weight, exercising, and not smoking. I read your query, by the information I have in hand my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler

In your age, most probably this is gastritis which is caused by oily and fast food. Avoid tea, coffee and spicy food. Consult me for details of what to avoid and what should be avoided for a better stomach and better life.

Hello, the symptoms are s/o gastric reflux. In which the acid from stomach gets refluxed into lower oesophagus (food pipe, leading to burping and heartburn mimicking chest pain. You have to start a complete course of proton pump inhibitors i. E. Antacid. Eat bland foods, do not lie down immediately after meals. Drink plenty of water. Avoid tea and coffee, gap between meals should not be more than 4 hrs. If symptoms still persist, consult a physician.

Dear lybrateuser, -Your pain in the left side could be due to the the same gynecomastia problem occurring on the left side -if pain is more then take a tablet of paracetamol after meals with water -observe it for a week or so if still no improvement then consult a doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels mentioned (145 - 100 mg), are those fasting or pp? further it is not clear when you say 145 to 100 mg. Better to mention exact fasting, pp levels and hba1c%. That will give a clear idea of severity of diabetes. In diabetes a person should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, items made out of maida and other refined flour. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. For achieving good control fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Thanks.

Dear lybrateuser, -at your age the pain may be due to stress, anxiety, sedentary life -do regular exercises like walking, running, cycling for 20-30 min, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10 min in the morning, keep active throughout the day -reduce stress by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby -eat meals 2-3 hrs before bedtime, avoid watching tv before bedtime for a peaceful sleep -get your blood pressure checked up.
