High pulse rate for long time is not desirable, you take beta blocker tab will definitely you get relief as you have high diastolic pressure, let me know if you do not get relief.

Hello, your blood pressure values are on the higher side but need not to worry . you should cut short your salt intake , drink plenty of water and go for a morning walk at least one hour. Keep a watch on your BP until it comes to normal.

If all these tests are normal, you may be having non cardiac chest discomfort. Take t paracetamol for a few days and see for symptomatic improvement. Nothing to panic.

Dear, lybrate user you r already taking, ecosprin av - 75 which already contains atovastatin, why tonact 20 mg, has been added further, it is advisable to consult your cardiologist in this regard. You should go through the under noted natural tips, please. Go for a brisk walk in d morning to restore your blood circulation, lower down cholesterol & glucose level as well as to maintain bp. Go for meditation to transport oxygenated blood to your cells & tissues to keep every thing under control. Take, plenty of water to eliminate toxins and to dilute your blood, naturally i, being a homoeopath can suggest you some homoeo medicine for your trouble, please. @ arjuna q - 10 drops, thrice with little water, keeping a time gap of an hr with d drugs being administered, already your diet b easily digestible. Simple, non irritant, on time. Take, care, please.

I had done ecg and echo test of heart they are normal just wanted to confirm my heart is normal.
ECG,TMT and ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY are the preliminary investigations done on our heart to rule out any possibility of any Heart problem.If both your tests are normal and you are not feeling any suffocation on slight exertion then I am sure that your heart is normal.

If tb is cured by taking a proper full course of medicines (6-8 months) properly there is very less risk of getting tb, but yes it can occur again sometimes. For weakness its recommended that you take good meals daily containing fresh fruits and vegetables and also rich in good quality proteins like egg protein. Reason for chest pain needs further checking.

My wife is suffering from high BP since last 10 years. Her bp pattern remains in range 170/90 for about one month. We have been monitoring regularly at home. She takes a pill LODOS 2.5. Also she has been taking garlic pills. However it never reduces below this level. She is quite reluctant to visit a doctor. Also she has lost 70%of her teeth still she does nt want to visit dental surgeon for treatment. Is this could be a reason for her high blood pressure. Please help.

Hii. The antihypertensive drugs can be the cause for the loss of teeth. Actually what happens is the antihypertensive drugs causes increase in the size of gingiva. Leading to difficulties in maintaining proper oral hygiene. That eventually leads to tooth loss.

No constipation is due to wrong and irregular intake food. And less water intake. You should have lots of leafy vegetables and cereals lean meat like chicken and fish if you are non vegetarian. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. Do not take spicy and junk food. The heart burn is duebto hyperacidity. Take regular milk in regular intervals. Milk is a good antacid.

Death can occur in 1st heart attack if help is not given in time to an otherwise perfect looking person. Attack does not come through blood in the mouth but it might have been a symptom of internal bleeding due to rupture of blood vessels.
