HI, It is difficult to tell the exact duration. In some , the deposition may occur fast and in some it may be very slow. It also depends of the nature of the food intake. The more the intake of fats, the more faster is its deposition and blockage of the arteries.

I have getting headache everyday and some sorts of pain during breathing deeply in my chest.
If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6. Avoid prolonged use of cell phone/computer 7. Consult neurologist to rule out other causes of headache, if required take a ct scan of head to exclude any brain lesion 8. If it is migraine you have to take migraine prophylactic drug after consulting neurologist 9. Consult me for further advice.

When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

Hello. Headache is a frequently observed side effect. This medication increases heart rate and may cause vasodilation. Over dose is really bad for heart and all other organs.

With your symptoms as described I feel that her medication is not being given adequately. Get a home bp monitor and check her bp every 6 hourly when she is relaxing for atleast 1/2 hour. Then with bp readings and her present medication chart revert back. We can address her headache better.

This can result in obstruction of blood flow across the valve, a condition called aortic stenosis and/or valve leakage, a condition called aortic valve regurgitation. The natural course of bicuspid aortic valve varies widely. There can be severe aortic stenosis at birth, due to incomplete opening of the valve leaflets. About 20-30% of patients with bicuspid aortic valve will have other family members affected. There is no exact genetic cause known, and the inheritance pattern can be very variable although there certainly appears to be a genetic component. In patients with bicuspid aortic valve with a known family history of valve disease or aortic disease, it is definitely recommended to screen all first-degree relatives with echocardiography. Most experts would recommend that echocardiographic screening be performed in all first-degree relatives of patients with bicuspid aortic valve. As mentioned above, the bicuspid aortic valve is a valvulo-aortopathy diagnosis, which means it affects the valve and the aorta. If the valve becomes severely leaky or severely tight, then operation is performed as per usual guidelines. These are basically if symptoms develop, or there is evidence of heart failure or heart muscle dysfunction. However many patients with bicuspid aortic valve will have aortic disease without significant valve disease and may need to undergo operation of the aorta aneurysm. Some patients will require both are done. Operation for aortic aneurysm in patients with bicuspid aortic valve is recommended in those who have ascending aorta diameter >5.5 cm.

BP is in the normal range , BP varies from time to time during the day/ night. Do not measure it too frequently and get all kinds of doubts and opinions.If someone has told you that the reading of 108/ 47 is low BP , there is no condition like low BP and patient is at home , with real low BP due to dehydration , blood loss , shock , one would be in a hospital. In my day to day practice I am asked often from women that are they suffering from Low BP as they are conditioned in their group that low BP is a routine illness and my answer to all of them is that they are lucky to have BP on the lower side.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all, you take 10-12 deep breaths early in morning on waking. Then try to do yoga for 10 mins. This will help to make you mind healthy and you will not forget things too. And also your blood pressure will start getting normalizing. As your age is quiet low, I would not suggest you to go for any medicinal treatment for high blood pressure. It can happen situational.
