High BP at the age of 29 is really high risk. Don't any Ayurvedic medication without consultation. You can simply increase intake of milk, urad dal and boiled rice to increase sexual power.

high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Yes, this may have cancer. Please get a ca 125 and cect abdomen and pelvis and consult a surgical oncologist or gynaec surgeon at the earliest. You need to get that ovary removed to assess the exact nature of that cyst. Please get operated at a place, with frozen section facility, so that a decision may be taken during the surgery. If it is cancer and you have completed your family, then you may need to get both ovaries and uterus removed, alongwith surgical staging for ovarian cancer.

Angioplasty is passing a wire through major blood vessel in groin or through radial area- arm. Local injury to vessel can cause bleeding and infection. Rest for at least a week. There are no chances of sciatica as that is a nerve-muscle disease. Food for lifetime should be low in salt & sugar despite bp & sugar in blood being normal, no bad fats like street food, burgers etc. Lots of protein through toned milk, curds & protein supplements, good fats & good proteins through a katori of assorted nuts + 1 spoon of pure ghee/ butter. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits.

Hello Lybrate user, there are various causes of pain in center region of chest with reduced appetite. It could be due to Gastro-oesophegial reflux disorder (GORD) in which, food regurgitate (revert back) form stomach to oesophagus, which ultimately causes burning pain and hyperacidity. It is most common cause of chest pain. Other cause could be achalasia (it is a rare surgical condition ), or hyperacidity etc.; more details are needed (like endoscopy report) for proper diagnosis and treatment. To avoid hyperacidity, have healthy diet, avoid spicy food, avoid alcoholic beverages etc; drink plenty of water (7-8 per day). Do not sleep immediately after dinner. Take homeopathic treatment for chest pain and loss of appetite. It's safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. Natural homeopathic medicines strikes at the root of problem to ensure complete relief. In chronic cases, medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient like medical history, cause, routine, temperament etc.; such well selected remedy gives complete relief and cure without side effects. Message back for proper homeopathic consultation.
