Hi. My husband is 34 years old. He has been diagnosed with hypertension. Medicines were not able to bring it under control. It was 220/140 .diastolic never came down below 180. He has been hospitalized now. Echocardiogram says that thickness of muscle in heart has increased. However everything else is normal. Renal Doppler also fine. I am taking care of him alone. Dr. please tell me the severity. And is it reversible. Will the thickness go back to normal.

Hi I am a 33 year old male and have been going through chest pain for the past 2 years. I have undergone all the required tests and consultation with lot of specialists. Let me brief you first with the tests I have undergone. In December 2013 I had done a complete heart check up (ECG, stress test and 2D echo) and all the reports were normal. But since the chest pain was still there in the month of Feb 2014 I also did an MRI scan for cervical and a CT angiography. The report for both these test were also normal and the calcium scores being zero. Then in the month of March 2014 I also underwent an endoscopy where in I was diagnosed with GERD (Gastro Esophagus Reflux Disease. Since then I have been taking medications for acid reflux and having changed my lifestyle in terms of my diet and sleep pattern. I was doing night for the last 10 years and recently also resigned from my job due to this. But there has been no change in the pattern of my pain. Infact it has increased over the period of time. I usually get the pain in the middle of my chest and just above the left breast. It is mild to moderate. I am also a non smoker and non drinker. Kindly advise as to why this is exactly happening since its effecting me mentally as well and impacting my career. I now a days at times also feel shortness of breath and pulse going high. Would highly appreciate your inputs on this.

I have a chest problem. My one breast is bigger with some hard fat inside and also covered uo with large nipple area. And another one is ok. With no fat and normal nipple. So what should I do.?
I am a 34 year old female suffering from chest pain for last 2 months. I have consulted a physician & an endocrinologist for the same (since I have hypothyroid) and taken due antibiotics courses. However it didn't help. I have also been suffering from multiple disc bulges in my lower back and have a cervical condition. Apart from this I have pain in my joints including the small joints in my fingers & toes. I have a suspicion that the chest pain might be related to the same, since it aggravates with physical movement. Can you please suggest the cause & treatment. For the same? Also if required do I consult a pulmonary or orthopaedic doc for it?
High blood pressure, which is often a result of hypertension, is the leading risk factor for a stroke, which in turn leads to severe and long-term disability, including death. Managing your blood-sugar levels is the most critical thing you can do to lessen your risk of a stroke, and you should leave no stone unturned in keeping your blood pressure at optimum levels.
What causes a stroke
A stroke, which is often referred to as a brain attack, takes place when the supply of blood to a particular region of the brain is cut off. The brain cells which are deprived of the oxygen and glucose die, and when the ailment is not caught early, a permanent damage to the brain can follow.
How is high blood pressure related to a stroke
Uncontrolled blood pressure levels can increase the risk of a stroke by about four to six times. With the passage of time, hypertension causes atherosclerosis as well as hardening of major arteries. This often results in blockages of small blood vessels present in the brain. With high blood pressure for a long period of time, the blood vessels of the brain become weak and burst. This way the risk of a stroke is directly related to the high levels of blood pressure.
What can you do to keep your blood pressure under control
There is a lot you can do to keep the chance of a stroke at bay. But the first thing you should try doing is keeping your blood pressure level normal. Some simple lifestyle changes can help you to lead a risk-free life and therefore, you should first aim at shedding off those extra pounds along your waistline.
In general, a man with a waistline measuring over 40 inches and a woman with that over 35 inches is at a higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure as well as a stroke. You should exercise regularly for at least half an hour and eat a well-regulated diet loaded with fibre, proteins, potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids. Stay away from junk food and maintain a food diary where you can jot down your honest food habits.
It is very important to lower down your high blood pressure in order to avoid risks of stroke. But if you fail to do so even after following a healthy routine, then it is crucial to consult a doctor who can help you by prescribing medications that are right for your medical condition.
Even if you don?t add salt to your food, you may still be eating too much. About three-quarters of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces. Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke.
Use food labels to help you cut down. More than 1.5g of salt per 100g means the food is high in salt. Adults and children over 11 should eat no more than 6g of salt a day. Younger children should have even less.
