I have a pain near my heart when I walk or run. Have any problem?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Alternate Medicine, PG Diploma in Emergency Medicine Services (PGDEMS)
Ayurveda,
I have a pain near my heart when I walk or run.
Have any problem?
Examples of heart-related causes of chest pain include: Heart attack. A heart attack is a result of a blood clot that's blocking blood flow to your heart muscle. Angina. Thick plaques can gradually build up on the inner walls of the arteries that carry blood to your heart. These plaques narrow the arteries and restrict the heart's blood supply, particularly during exertion. Aortic dissection. This life-threatening condition involves the main artery leading from your heart — your aorta. If the inner layers of this blood vessel separate, blood will be forced between the layers and can cause the aorta to rupture. Pericarditis. This condition, an inflammation of the sac surrounding your heart, usually causes sharp pain that gets worse when you breathe in or when you lay down. Digestive causes Chest pain can be caused by disorders of the digestive system, including: Heartburn. This painful, burning sensation behind your breastbone occurs when stomach acid washes up from your stomach into the esophagus — the tube that connects your throat to your stomach. Swallowing disorders. Disorders of the esophagus can make swallowing difficult and even painful. Gallbladder or pancreas problems. Gallstones or inflammation of your gallbladder or pancreas can cause abdominal pain that radiates to your chest. Muscle and bone causes Some types of chest pain are associated with injuries and other problems affecting the structures that make up the chest wall. Examples include: Costochondritis. In this condition, the cartilage of your rib cage, particularly the cartilage that joins your ribs to your breastbone, becomes inflamed and painful. Sore muscles. Chronic pain syndromes, such as fibromyalgia, can produce persistent muscle-related chest pain. Injured ribs. A bruised or broken rib can cause chest pain. Lung-related causes Many lung disorders can cause chest pain, including: Pulmonary embolism. This cause of chest pain occurs when a blood clot becomes lodged in a lung (pulmonary) artery, blocking blood flow to lung tissue. Pleurisy. If the membrane that covers your lungs becomes inflamed, it can cause chest pain that's made worse when you inhale or cough. Collapsed lung. The chest pain associated with a collapsed lung typically begins suddenly and can last for hours. A collapsed lung occurs when air leaks into the space between the lung and the ribs. Pulmonary hypertension. High blood pressure in the arteries carrying blood to the lungs (pulmonary hypertension) also can produce chest pain. Other causes Chest pain can also be caused by: Panic attack. If you have periods of intense fear accompanied by chest pain, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing, profuse sweating, shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness and a fear of dying, you may be experiencing a panic attack. Shingles. Caused by a reactivation of the chickenpox virus, shingles can produce pain and a band of blisters from your back around to your chest wall. So for heart related cause there are many effective medicines to prevent that pain like arjunarishta....hridyarnava ras....akeek pishti....if breathlessness then shwas kutha ras....shwas chintamani ras....etc....avoid oily food...spicy food...junk food....etc

My son age 5 month 15 days, weight:- 5. 3kg, he had suffered the whole of heart (size-6mm). So what I can do?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query the hole in heart can be in the atrial septum known as atrial septal defect (asd) or in the ventricular septum known as ventricular septum defect (vsd). The future outcome depends on multiple factors like type of septal defect, ventricular size and contractility and pulmonary artery pressure. We can wait for 6 mm asd if not causing any hemodynamic overload while 6 mm vsd may need medical treatment and closure as this may cause recurrent respiratory illnesses. The hole can be closed by a button through a wire or may need open heart surgery. This also depends on the location. So I request you to give history in detail like weight, growth, feeding difficulty, frequency of respiratory illness and to attach the report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user try to avoid taking pain killers every time. Uterus contraction cause much of the pain felt during menstrual cycle because contraction inhibit blood flow to the lining of uterus. You should eat max fruits and vegetables at that time, drink more water and reduce stress. Also do these yoga for the daily routine- head yo knee forward bend. Noose pose. Camel pose. And reclining big toe pose. Also for more pain try homeopathic medicine. They will completely replenish your pain.

Psychological erectile dysfunction is cured with the help of sexual counseling and sex therapy. Take care.

Hello Doctor, Am 25years old male. I am scaring of jaundice because past two weeks am feeling like urine is light yellow. If I drink more water urine in clear (white), If I do not drink water more urine is yellow. Past two weeks climate also hot. Am working in IT, so am working under AC room. So day time drinking more water urine is normal. When I get up morning urine color is light yellow. Am thinking to take take bilirubin test. But before going that that is it serious or its normal. I just want to know why urine is yellow when am not drinking more water.

MBBS
General Physician,
Good think at this age you are health conscious. You know the water contain of your body is 70% of your total wt. So any less water intake your urine will be concentrated thereby the yellow colouration thevdailynwater intake required by an adult young individual is 7 8 glass of full water. Minimum more no harm. If your appetite is less and you feel easily fatigue and tired and your skin is also starts getting ye l oowish may be slight fever etc then it could be viral hepatitis or jaundice but there is no harm in getting serum bilirubin level in the blood can be done. Hope you are now clear?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Size, thickness and hardness of penis never matters in a sexual intercourse. Love and passion matters and determines the sexual pleasure. Usually, in flaccid condition, the size will be less than 2 inches. Average size of erect penis is 4 inches. But even a two inch erect penis can satisfy any woman across the world just because, woman sexual nerve endings which are the reason for pleasure for women, are available only up to two inches from the opening of vagina. Therefore, please don't worry. You can improve the size of your penis by massaging it with olive oil and doing kegal pelvic strengthening exercises. Furbah oil is a good unani medicine for you to use externally. Muira Puama and Catuaba are good homeopathic remedies. Jelqing is the backbone of different penis enlargement exercises. Jelqing exercises are to improve the hardness and size of the penis in men. Bananas are Good for your heart and for your blood flow, and therefore bananas are recommended food for penis enlargement and increased sexual stamina. It contains many vitamins and minerals suitable for penis enlargement. I suggest online sex education and counseling. Take care.

All the things that you are reporting clearly point towards a stress related psychiatric problem. It might be an adjustment disorder or a depressive episode. Share your concern with friends and family, lighten your burden, do not decrease involvement in your hobbies or pleasurable activities even if you feel tired or hopeless; do not decrease food and drink. Try to sleep and wake up in a fixed pattern. Increase contact with friends and family even though you may not feel like talking. If condition still persists, consult a psychiatrist.
