I do not agree with your cardiologist that you should go to a psychiatrist. I believe that palpitations are to be addressed as a problem even when no pathological reason related to heart has been found. If you're having palpitations it basically means that you have an undue awareness of your heart beat. Lot of these problems have to do with stress undoubtably. But leaving them to be tackled only as stress may have its own shortcomings. I would advise you to 1st cut down on intake of caffeine which we take in the form of tea coffee and cola drinks. Also ensure that you are taking a good nights sleep. Keeping yourself involved in stress bustingactivities would also ensure the relief of anxiety which causes increase in heart rate. Hope this helps you. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, Depression, anxiety, acidity all go together as Mixed Anxiety Depressive Disorder. It will be treated by any psychiatrist with appropriate medicines and talk therapy. I would like to know your weight, BMI and abdominal girth. Your cholesterol and hiatus hernia may be related to them. You need to reduce your weight and eat frequent small meals.

Diabetes is a disease of multifactorial etiology. Some kind of people are more inclined genetically to have diabetes while there are others who are genetically sound yet they have it because of weight gain. or drugs or later in life with gradual decline of body functions and accelerated decline of functions in some specific organs.

Hi welcome, Blockage in all three arteries with reduced heart function& hhistory of cardiac arrest is a serious thing. He will definitely need a by pass surgery (CABG). The risk of the surgery will be higher than a normal patient with blockage in all three arteries. Diabetes control is definitely a very important thing. About medication, dose of cardace could be increased as per bp. Another very important medication (beta blocker) should be added to the treatment. Both the cardace & beta blocker are very very important for such patients. I could be of more help if you could send me the echo & Angio report. Thanks & take care.

5 Common Vascular Disorders

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, Fellowship in Vascular Surgery, Ted Rogers Fellowship
Vascular Surgeon, Delhi
5 Common Vascular Disorders

Vascular disorders are disorders of the vessels in your body that carry either blood or waste products. The vascular system consists of the arteries (that carry blood away from the heart), veins (that carry blood to the heart) and lymph vessels (that carry waste products to be excreted from the body). The various diseases of the vascular or circulatory system are:

  1. Peripheral Artery Disease: Peripheral arteries carry blood to the various organs and tissues in the body. Accumulation of cholesterol and fat in the vessels narrow the pathway for the blood to flow. This can impair blood flow to the tissues in the body and cause complications. Various medications used to lower cholesterol and blood pressure can also be used for peripheral artery disease.
  2. Buerger's Disease: This disease causes obstructions in the veins and arteries in the legs. This can hamper blood supply in the toes and the feet. It causes pain and may require amputation in severe cases. Treatments for this disease include smoking cessation and medications to dilute blood vessels.
  3. Aneurysm: An aneurysm is swelling in the blood vessel walls; it usually occurs in the aorta. The artery walls become fragile and are placed under a lot of stress; this may lead to a sudden rupture of the aortic vessels. This disorder is usually treated by surgical procedures.
  4. Peripheral Venous Disease: Peripheral venous disease is characterized by damage to the valves that allows blood to flow in a single direction. Damaged valves can cause blood to flow backwards and therefore, accumulate. Treatments for this disorder are incorporating certain lifestyle habits such as quitting smoking and alcohol.
  5. Blood clots in the veins: Blood clots may occur in the veins present inside the muscles of the thighs and lower legs which lead to deep vein thrombosis. You may be prescribed anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, to treat this disorder.

Causes
People with diseases such diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney failure can be more likely to have vessel problems. Working with vibrating tools, being in cold temperatures, and smoking can worsen vascular problems. Causes of vascular disorders usually fit into one of 5 groups:

  1. Traumatic, which occur after injury
  2. Compressive, which occur when the pipes flatten
  3. Occlusive, which occur when pipes are blocked
  4. Tumors (growths) or malformations (deformed, tangled pipes), which may or may not be present at birth
  5. Vessel spasms, which occur when abnormal control of vessels causes them to narrow

Symptoms
Symptoms of vascular disorders can include:

  1. Pain
  2. Abnormal color changes in the fingertips
  3. Ulcers or wounds that do not heal
  4. Hand problems when in cold temperatures or locations
  5. Numbness or tingling of the fingertips
  6. Swelling
  7. Cool or cold fingers and/or hands 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

From your history it appears that you are really stressed out. Nowadays many youngsters having such complains which I believe are mainly because abnormal lifestyle like lack rest lack of sleep abnormal eating times, eating junk food so on and so forth. You need to adopt a healthy stress free lifestyle. Like regular exercise healthy food at normal times at least 8 hours of sleep. From what I see meditation and yoga will be great help. Do see a doctor so that he does necessary test for chest pain. Changing your lifestyle at this age will prevent many diseases like diabetes, blood pressure, coronary artery disease etc.

1) microwave heating for food in plastic containers is bad/ poisonous. Yes olive oil does prevent heart disease as it is one of the good fats but use it in moderation like other good fats.

I am a 29 years old female with 4 kids. I have given birth to all 4 with caesarean section. I have hydronephrosis which is under control. An my blood pressure is around 100/70 to 80/60. I always feel dizzy? What could be its cause.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The cause seems to be hypotension. When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing yoursalt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such asbread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.
