I have chest pain in deep breath or chest moment exercises? What's the reason behind?
In this age this can be simple muscle pull. Hot fomentation, local analgesic spray will help, if no relief, get full check up done.

You are getting indirect satisfaction from your friend. Your friend loved one person and failed. He revealed to you and get benefit from you. Then he feels. You also not needed. Then stop friendship to you. But you are unable to control of yourself. You wants to guide to him in all times. But it is not happen in all times. Friends are like that. When they need they come to you. After getting relief they leave to you. You also take it easy. Do not think too much about this aspects. You are getting much satisfaction when you listen and guide him. You feel supreme and your internal ego also satisfied. But the ego cannot tolerate when he leave to you. This is not good. He is not feel to you as a good friend. For that reason he leaves to you. So also think like that. Stop the indirect process of satisfaction. Internally you feel he wants to love to you. But he vexed this process and stopped with you also. You are getting very good experience based on that do not develop too much expectation from others. Take it easy. Better to concentration on your studies. Anyone comes to you and express their problems. Just listen and help to them. Do not think they are my all time friends. Better to change your thoughts process. Be friendly and be sociable. All the best.

Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. It seems that your knees are under a lot of stress due to high weight but you can start doing exercises - Quadriceps & Hamstring strengthening exercises for your affected knee. Also start walking for about 2-3 km everyday ( Brisk walks) and get your vitamin D and calcium metabolism correct. Do not hesitate to contact me in case of further queries.

One non medicated stent was fixed in one of the arteries leading to heart nine years ago. Now there is no problem. Everything is all right. What is the life span of a non medicated stent? Whether let it remain inside or it should be removed out or it should be replaced? Please advise.

If you have no symptoms for 9 years, there is no need to change the stent, either vessels have been opened up or new vessels have taken over the role of supplying blood to heart. Heart has a net work of small blood vessels and they do become as good as new in case of requirements of more blood supply to the heart. Take care and follow prevention and treatment like you have been doing for past 9 years.

How long have you been jogging, if recently started, as you are a young growing man, I recommend you slowly increase your activities. You should take short rests until your heart beat settles and then start jogging again. If this continues beyond one month, you should get a cardiologist to check you.

Hello thanks for the query the symptoms are suggestive of gastroesophageal reflux. The frequent reflux may lead to esophagitis. Sometimes there may be associated gastric/esophageal ulcer. I suggest you to take some acid reducing agent (proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole, lansoprazole) along with prokinetic like domperidone/cisapride to prevent reflux. Avoid spicy and oily food, tea, coffee. Don't take too much water with food. Take food 3-4 hours before sleep. Elevate the head end of the bed. I hope all this measures will help. Regards.
