You are right that acidity can be confused with heart pain. Good to know that all tests related to heart are normal but anxiety of heart disease is bothering you. Why not. Even doctors are teaching people to bring in modifications in lifestyle and reducing stress and anxiety is one of the changes plus good food habits so that you don't suffer from acidity. You have to remind yourself everyday that there should be no heart related stress and you are lucky to have normal reports.

High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the doors of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck.

Does olive oil prevent heart disease? Do cough syrups work? Do sugary soft drinks lead to diabetes?

Does olive oil prevent heart disease? Do cough syrups work? Do sugary soft drinks lead to diabetes?
Answer is yes to all 3 questions but use in moderation. Skip sugary soft drinks which have lots of caffeine in them eg pepsi and coke's as they weaken bones. One can have sherbet and roofafza and thandai and aam panna type of sugary drinks in moderation.

If you don't want pregnancy, there are two options. One is you can take medicine. Abortive pills. But sometimes they don't give results. Results also depend upon how much time is pregnancy of. Another option is curretting. It is safest method in consideration of completion.

Hello sir, got to know about your problem. HCM, I assume is evaluted by cardiologist. I hope he has explained to you about your condition of your heart and what can be done about it. Sometimes they do ablation inside heart to reduce the increased size if it is obstructing the flow of blood from the heart. This is done through heart catheterization only. They don't cut open your heart. Safe and simple procedure in experienced cardiologists. If you are worried about CNN unnecessarily and worrying about it, being anxious and getting chest pain and palpitations and diziness, then consult a psychiatrist can help you to reduce anxiety and fear that you might die. I hope I have answers your question to some extent.

Hi, First and foremost thing is weight reduction. Avoid high calorie diet like oil fried food, sweets, ice-cream, chocolates, bakery food, chats, etc. Take plenty of raw vegetables and plain fruits. Replace rice with wheat or ragi or jowar. They take a long time to get digested and hence you will not feel hungry very often. Walk everyday in your own pace for 30 mins. initially and gradually increase it to 1 hour. Take tab. Abana 2 tabs twice daily after food which protects your heart. Be active always.

RBBB is a common finding in ECG and does not have much significance. However consult physician for advice.There may be a slight diurnal variation due to stress, physical strain etc. If the ECG is normal and the heart beat is regular you don't have to worry.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

My health is not well after some time and my bp was same time is not normal so sagaste me.
To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

I am a 45 years old married male and have hypertension since last 9 years and I am taking tab co approval in the morning with breakfast daily. Its ibesartan with hydroclorothozide. I have a very good german bp checking machine at home and my bp remains at 130/ 85. But sometimes due to some stress as soon as it goes above 90 I get headache and spinning sensation in my head. If I forget to take tablet even for one day I sometimes face this, but if I am on a holiday and relaxed and forget to take the tab its fine. I do treadmill for 30 minutes almost 5 times in a week and do weights for 5 minutes. My weight is 79 kgs and my height is 5.6 feet. I have a medium body but have a tummy. My waist is 34. Am I taking the right tablet and dosage or I need to change. By night time I feel tired and go to sleep whenever on bed. I have lot of urge for sex too but sexual life is not good as wife is not interested much.

When a woman's not interested in sex?and would like to be?it may have something to do with her relationship, her upbringing, or something else in her experience, but there could also be a medical explanation. For instance: 1. Reduced blood flow Diabetes and high blood pressure are among the health problems that can restrict genital blood flow. 2. Hormonal issues Menopause, breast-feeding, birth control pills, and thyroid problems can dampen sexual desire. 3. Medication side effects Antidepressants and chemotherapy agents such as tamoxifen are frequently to blame. Approaching Menopause, She Stopped Wanting Sex More about women and sex ? Medical Reasons for Low Sex Drive ? Psychological Reasons for Low Sex Drive ? Answers About Women's Sex Problems ? The Female Dysfunction Debate 4. Nerve damage Pelvic surgery can cause nerve damage, as can diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's. Other reasons for low desire might include lack of sleep or depression. Talk to a doctor or sex therapist If you have low desire, get checked out by your primary care doctor. Whether or not he or she finds a physical problem, a consultation with a certified sex therapist can be helpful, because physical sex problems usually create a psychological or relationship issue, as well. "It's usually not just one thing," says Marjorie Green, MD, director of the Mount Auburn Female Sexual Medicine Center in Cambridge, Mass., and a clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School. On the other hand, if you feel your lack of desire is a physical issue and your primary care doctor is not able or willing to help, you may want to consult a sexual medicine specialist. Treatments These vary depending on the source of the problem, but may include switching prescription medication, taking estrogen or testosterone, taking a drug that increases dopamine levels, or trying products such as Eros Therapy, an FDA-approved prescription-only device that uses gentle suction to increase blood flow to the clitoris and vulva. Some women may also see improvement with regular exercise, sex therapy, or relationship counseling.

Yes genes and lifestyle does play an important role in heart attacks. One can't change genes but modifications of lifestyle does help gene'mutation' to be careful not to worry about heart attack risks. Keep sugar levels and bp under control, no smoking or exposure to pollution. Reduce stress and take only positive stress of fruitful result oriented activities as good feed back does help take away bad cholesterol, loneliness kills more people than bad cholesterol, stay blessed. Stay occupied and don't take everything to heart.
