I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECTG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia and my Total cholesterol was 237. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and evening and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 5 days now that I am taking this medicine and I notice that after taking cilamet I veel dizzy and lightheaded for about 3 hours my BP also goes down to 95/55. Please let me know if I should reduce the strength of Cilamet or change the tablet.

Chest pain jo heart ki vajah se hota hai wo chale ne pe ya kaam karne pe aata hai aur araam karne se chala jata hai. Gas ka dard chest mein ho sakta hai. Treadmill test (tmt) karne se dono mein fark kar sakte hain. Cardiologist ko dikhayein.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Yes. The symptoms points to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, at your young age, it is most likely that you do not have any BP problem. You should spend more time in eating well, exercising properly and outdoor activities. This will help reduce your restlessness about BP and you will enjoy your life more. Y are obviously suffering from acidity, so monitoring your digestion is important. Eat slowly, fresh foods and drink plenty of water to keep the acidity away. Do not onsume any food that is difficult to digest, spicy, old, cold and chillie. Improve your immunity and gut health. Call us for details. We have good medicines like cow colostrum Reimmugen that will help you.

Dear, you should definitely quit. You should visit a pulmonologist / physician for detailed investigation. Let them decide what are those check ups you need. You will need de-addiction therapy and nicotine replacement therapy for some time to tackle nicotine craving. Take care.

Dear Lybrate User, I should appreciate you for the fact you believe that diabetes can be controlled by lifestyle modifications. Yes that's true, though it's not irreversible. Good that you have concentrated on physical activity , do concentrate on your diet as well. Make flaxseed, drumstick leaves, curry leaves powder and sprinkle 30 gm daily on all the foods you consume throughout the day. Also sprinkle wheat bran and germ daily 30gm throughout on all foods you consume. Consume lot of leeks and lettuce smoothie which is high in fibre content. Also you can consume raw lady's finger water soaked overnight for your diabetes condition.
