Dear user. Heart conditions like hypertension (high blood pressure) and congestive heart failure can also cause nosebleeds, as can hypertensive crisis — a sudden, rapid increase in blood pressure that may be accompanied by a severe headache, shortness of breath, and anxiety, according to the American Heart Association (AHA). Please talk to your doctor before taking any medications. Take care.

No there is no problem. BP of 140 /80 is normal. Though upper one systolic is little high but at this age there will be always little stress. Still you should practice a healthy life style like regular walking of 30 to 45 minutes, avoid all sort of fried and rich foods, take less carb foods. Minimum sleep should be if 8 hours at night. Regarding pulse it is also normal. Nothing to be worry. Stay healthy. Thank you.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Multiple blocks in heart and what are you waiting for get bypass surgery done and do take aftercare, and the superspeciality hospital near dibrugarh, may be you have to take your father to kolkata at hospital by birla, do it fast. There is no medicine to reduce or cure blockages of this extent in the heart. I don't blame you for delay because people are as scared of heart surgery as they fear cancer and treatment, but the technology is advanced and mortality with bypass heart surgery is less than 1 % only. Good luck.

For the last three days im feeling a pain in my chest and feeling a bit hard to breathe. Is it a sign of lung or throat cancer? I am also a chain smoker.

There can be many causes of chest pain and difficulty in breathing, some as small as acidity and others like pneumonia, heart attack and in some cases cancer. But instead of panicking by thinking it may be cancer just because you smoke, consult a doctor so that they can evaluate you and find out the cause behind your symptoms. They may advice you, ECG, chest-x-ray AP view, Echo and a few blood tests, evaluate the reports of these tests and then come to a conclusion and start treatment accordingly. But please don't self diagnose and give yourself unnecessary anxiety and fear thinking about cancer etc.
