The pain is not related to your heart neither to your chest. The reason might be due to your dietary habits. Certain medication and change in dietary habits will bring you relief.

My wife is pregnant and the baby is 6 week older. She has high cholesterol thus, she was taking Astin D (atorvastatin) 10mg daily even after pregnant. Doctor says that we need to terminate the pregnancy because Astin D could have affected the development of baby. Do I need to follow doctors instruction of termination?

Statins should be stopped when one is planning a pregnancy. Alrhough the risks are low, yet Statins belong to x category drug as per safety. Since the patiemt is young and if conceiving was relatively easy you can think of discontinuing this pregnancy and planning more carefully next time. But the decision making is entirely yours.

BP diet should be as follows: Reduce white salt, shift to rock salt, that too, in the most minimum dosages. Increase your intake of fresh green leafy vegetables and totally stop consuming anything in packaged foods like chips, lays, biscuits, tinned foods foods in tetra-packs etc. Eat on time, slowly and drink water in proper volume (roughly 2 to 3 liters per day is considered good). Alcohol, tobacco in any form, high stress lack of adequate rest, stress can trigger high BP. The first warning signs of increase in B is head ache feeling depressed, swelling and fatigue. 3 to 5 BP tests will confirm if it is transient high BP or set high BP. Depending on age and other conditions, medication will be recommended.

Dear lybrate-user, I can feel your anxiety and concern. Having multiple disorders require many medicines to be prescribed for each of the disorder. Diabetes can cause erectile dysfunction and many medicines can also lead to erector dysfunction. Also stress and depression associated with chronic multiple disease can contribute or cause erectile problems. It'll be prudent on your part to consult the doctor personally after letting him know proper history. This way he can help you better.

1. For your age pain chest could be due to anxiety, stress, physical and mental strain, hyper acidity, muscular problem 2. Avoid stress and strain 3. Do regular exercise, reduce your weight if over weight. 4. Control your diet. Avoid oily/spicy/fried and junk food, high calorie and cholesterol rich diet.

Hi, I am a 28 years old, male, obese person. In 22 years of age, I had a problem started, high bp. Doctor recomment me seloken xl 50 mg + amcard 5 twice daily. Few years back, due to high cost of medicine, I started using generic medicine which is metoprolol 50 mg (for seloken xl 50 mg) + amlodipine 5 mg (for amcard 5). Are these generic medicines fine for me? other than this I started taking patanjali ayurvedic medicine divya mukta vati also.

Please get her checked by another doctor for a second opinion. May be it's time to reanalyse her case once again with a new approach. Let the doctor check her and do some tests. The doctor may change the medicine and ask for regular follow up so that it can be ensured that her BP comes under control. So regular monitoring is important. She should also consider changing her life style. A healthy lifestyle will help her to cope with the new regime in a better manner. She can also learn Yoga and (other parts of yoga) from an expert and consistently do it every day. Please revert with your feed back.

Hi though your diabetes report fine, you have to take precaution in sugar intake as it runs in your family. For cholesterol stop fried intake, you can switch over to rice bran or olive oil. Eat more steamed or roasted form of nonveg if you eat non veg. Avoid egg yellow. Have only egg whites walk daily
