I am suffering from dry cough for the last 3 weeks and I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest what should be done?

Just dru cough alone for 3 weeks can be due to 1. After a common cold or viral fever; the fever may go unnoticed but leaves behind a dry cough which will resolve over a few more weeks or turn to wheezy cough. 2. A dry cough may be a sign of allergic asthma without wheezing . This occurs during season change or on exposure to allergens like dust; cold air etc. 3. Do not smoke. It prevents a common cold getting resolved fast. 4. There are no serious illnesses which present as dry cough for 3 weeks. So there is no reason to be over apprehensive. 5. Chest pain is because we mainly cough with our chest muscles. So they get sprained by hard cough. As there is no sputum ; try some cough suppresant syrups if needed. 6. Hot fomentation or hot water bath 3 times will relax the chest muscles. 7. Paracetamol is also OK .

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,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hi. Bp is the problem that generally does not cause any symptoms of the patient. This is what makes the disease so bad kind of disease. Because patient does not feel any problem from the disease. Most of the times bp is detected when the patient goes to a doctor for some other reasons, doctors check bp and detect you having high blood pressure. You need to check your blood pressure regularly for like about one week or one months time. If every time your blood pressure is more than one 140/90 then it is proven fact that taking a blood pressure medicine will give you good results in long time. God has made the heart in such a way that when it pumps, it creates pressure of one 120/80. So when you have high blood pressure you want your heart to work harder so that it produces more pressure. So each and every beat your heart pumps, it is working more than what it is supposed to work. So just imagine 80 times in a minute then what in an hour what in 24 hours what in weeks and what in years. So this extra burden on the heart causes problem in long time. This is why we advise to take bp medicines so that we can reduce the load on your heart so that it lasts longer. Take care.
