What to I have a heavy gastric I can not sleep at night my heart will pain at night what to do to clear my gastric?
Only 18 but suffering from gastric problems, before some tests are suggested, do take care about your diet. Eat moderately, regularly, nouritious food which has simple proteins like milk & curds and less oils, besides raw vegetables that can cause distention. Do write back after a week, if problem is not resolved, some tests will be suggested.

Ask your local doctor. He may advise you to reduce the dosages. But I feel you BP has not come down enough to warrant a reduction in dosages. If you can reduce your weight to about 59 kgs that may be the time you can think of reducing medication. But do so only after your Doctor agrees to it.

My father had a CABG on Mar 28, 2016. After keeping him in CTVS followed by HDU for 4 days doctors shifted him to his general ward. Since Mar 31, 2016 he was complaining that he was not able to remember anything. He forgot names of every family member and friends except one or two people who are not extremely close. He even forgot his own name as well. Doctors found yesterday that he got a blood clot in his left tempro -parietal lobe of the brain which had caused a stroke. This was definitely post CABG because before am operation too he had a CT scan where no such clot was evident. Now the doctors have given him the following medicines: Atova 20mg, diplate A-120, cetil 500mg, paracetamol, ditallox 12.5mg, insulin 6 units in morning, 8 units in afternoon and 6 units in the night. My father already had a mild stroke before in August 2012; that time his homocysteine level in sera was found to be 114 for which the doctor gave folic acid tablets as medicine. Rest a Carotid Doppler found minor plaques. Rest all tests were good. Now in this condition I am almost clueless what to do next? Please help.

It is not even 1 month when your father had a cabg. He has a history of a mild stroke in past and causes of stroke and heart attack are same, so is the prevention after a warning in the form of anginal pain or a mini stroke, he is a diabetic too, controlled on insulin. Sometimes medicines belonging to opiate group are given post operatively for bone pain, this does affect the memory and it is a temporary change, doctors shift to other pain killers like it has been the case - he is being given paracetamol, statins to bring down bad cholesterol that causes plaque. Carotid doppler has shown minor plaques which is expected because he had blockages which caused heart attack and stroke. May be your doctors will give medicines to dissolve clots in the brain. Continue the treatment as suggested by your doctors, remember it takes minimum 2 months for innermost tissues to recover, outwardly the stitches may look clear and normal, you need to have patience and help him recover. Good luck.

Dear , fast heart beats are due to abnormal electrical circuits inside heart. You needs to see an arrhythmia specialist (electrophysiologist). We can investigate you by ecg, holter monitoring, and if necessary by ep study for palpitations. Such fast heartbeats can sometimes be dangerous, so it is necessary to investigate further.

What is low blood pressure (hypotension)?

Diploma in Diabetology, Master of Hospital Administration, MBBS
General Physician,
Low blood pressure, also known as hypotension, is where blood pressure in your arteries is abnormally low. Naturally low blood pressure is unlikely to cause any symptoms and is normally nothing to worry about. But if your blood pressure drops too low, it can restrict the amount of blood flowing to your brain and other vital organs, which can cause unsteadiness, dizziness or fainting.

There are numerous causes of chest pain like muscular pain, cardiac pain, dyspeptic burning like pain. A proper history is needed to rule out any on of this.

How can the chest pains distinguish as heart problems or not in case of a middle aged man who is a smoker?

How can the chest pains distinguish as heart problems or not in case of a middle aged man who is a smoker?
Chest pain that is central, not localised, radiating to arms and neck, associated with sweating, aggravated by activity and relieved by rest is typical of cardiac pain. Usually that is constricting or sqeezing or heavy pressure like feeling. Chest pain which is not central, licalised to left or rifht side, not radiating, pricking or aching type, aggravates while breathing is usually of non cardiac origin.

Shaking that gets worse when you try to maintain one position? a family history of tremor? as many as one in four people develop essential tremor as they age. You are more likely to develop essential tremor if you have a parent or sibling with the condition. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.
