1) Please understand that without evaluating her and doing tests like ecg, ecgo, chest x-ray, hemoglobin levels, calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin B12 it will not be possible for us to understand exactly what is causing her breathlessness and treatment. 2) It will be better to consult a cardiologist for evaluation and then take treatment advice.

How To Recognise a STROKE, Before it's Too Late!

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

How To Recognise a STROKE, Before it's Too Late!

Strokes occur when blood to the brain gets interrupted or reduced. When this occurs, brain cells begin to die as they don't get enough nutrients and oxygen. Such life-threatening episodes can strike you anytime.

There are certain signs that can help you to clearly recognise an occurrence of stroke:

  • Face drooping on one side
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body, usually a leg or an arm
  • You're unable to think or say anything clearly
  • You experience slurred speech
  • Difficulty in moving your tongue
  • You get a sudden and severe headache

What Tests can be Done to Identify the Stroke?

There are certain tests that you can do to identify these warning signs.

  • To identify facial weakness, the smile test is used wherein you're simply asked to show your teeth to check for any changes in this facial expression - a lopsided smile.
  • To check for weakness in the body, the arm test is performed in which you raise both your arms to the same height. In case you're unable to do so, you may be experiencing arm weakness, a sign of stroke.
  • For slurring of speech, you may be asked to repeat sentences such as 'Don't cry over spilt milk' or 'The pen is mightier than the sword'.
  • Stroke can also be identified through the walk test wherein with the help of another person, you walk across the room to check for changes in your step.

If not treated in time, strokes can cause permanent brain damage. More importantly, unlike heart attacks, anxiety may not always be the cause of your stroke symptoms. That's why, being aware of these symptoms and recognising them on time can help you to quickly seek medical assistance.

Dear lybrateuser, - Since the pain in your chest is on movement it could be due to bony or soft tissue problem - do not strain, bend or lift any weight till pain subsides - do hot fomentation of the affected area twice a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - take a pain relief tablet 2-3 times a day after meals.

BP is a fluctuating problem, the factors which lead to fluctuation are very variable. So the best way is to monitor periodically and adjust medication in consultation with your treating doctor accordingly. But if becomes high all of a sudden, first get evaluated for any reason which may be leading to this, so get your self evaluated by a cardiologist, also ensure that you avoid taking caffeine, high salt food in your diet like chips, popcorns, sauces, papads, chutneys etc. Because these lead to increase in BP.

Hi What test is more reliable? conventional angiography or ct coronary angiography?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
Definitely conventional angiography. Ct only shows any blockages but cannot show whether the blood is able to negotiate the blockages adequately enough to reach the heart. Hence, in order to know how critical the blockage is, conventional angiography has more utility and experience.

Please be realistic and rational in your approach. You need proper medical examination and some tests. So please do not waste time and visit a doctor ASAP. Based on your check up and reports the doctor will prescribe medications. Please do take them sincerely. Do not worry about the future. There is no harm in taking medications for long term. You should think positively and do all the best possible things. Start exercising every day (add Yoga and pranayam ), eat healthy food with every day fruits and vegetables. Avoid extra salt, junk, processed and junk food or cold drinks. Avoid stimulants like tobacco and alcohol. Learn some relaxation techniques so that you learn to let -go of your stress. Keep the reviews and follow-up regularly. Revert after you visit the doctor for any clarification.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your palpitations are well controlled because of taking Metoprolol 12.5 mg. Hence, if stop that it is most likely that the palpitations will come back. So it is better to continue the same medication. Thanks.
