I have had this problem for a while but it seems to be getting much worse. I think it is probably due to anxiety but not sure. Whenever I lay down afternoon or at night I can hear and feel my heart beating. It feels as though there is a sledge hammer in my chest pounding back and forth. I can hear and feel every single beat. It makes it impossible to relax and rest. I am now having trouble going to sleep because of it. I am always tired. I experience body aches. I can not do physical activity long enough like my peers.

Dear lybrateuser, -Your problem could be due to anxiety or weakness due to anemia -have a proper balanced , nutritious diet with more of fruits & greenleafy vegetables, whole grains, milk & milk products, beans, nuts, sprouts as they are a good source of energy to keep you going, also have snacks in between main meals to boost your metabolism -do regular exercises like walking, jogging for 30 min ,also do yoga & deep breathing to keep the body & mind healthy & fit -do blood cbc , if hemoglobin is low then take an iron supplement -distress by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby, play an outdoor game -you require a sound sleep for about 7-8 hrs in the night otherwise the body & mind become lethargic & you cannot concentrate well -also get your BP, blood sugar & TSH, T3, T4 done & consult a doctor if not much improvement.

if at this age you r having 90% blockage, that's very serious. You already must be taking allopathic treatment. So may I know what treatment you r taking and what investigations you have gone through. If you interested to take ayurveda treatment I can help u. But first of all I want to know all clinical details. Start with pathyadi kwath 20 ml with equal amount of water. Twice a day after food. Wish you a good health n soon recovery.

Taking 1 tablet of 10m. G.Cholesterol lowering for the almost 9 years s.(taking Aztor 10 mg for the last 3 years) At times I take a break of 1 or 2 days. At times for a week Can such drugs be discontinued once cholesterol levels are normal. Studies say these drugs have a lot of side effects and don't help much Last 1 month I have been experiencing severe hair fall, what could be the reason?

lybrate-user you have been taking these medicines from last 10 yrs, so your hair loss is definitely not secondary to these. Secondly you may discontinue the medicine intermittently if you want, but then their effect will disappear and your cholesterol levels may get deranged, so if you discontinue the medicine repeat your lipid profile 6 weeks later to see if it has not increased, if it does restart. I am sure you must be taking diet precautions and exercising daily like morning walk, if not then please do so, that may help you lower your cholesterol medicine dose a bit. But even after that you may require to take these medications, they are relatively safe and have been well studied so don't worry too much about the side-effects.

One non medicated stent was fixed in one of the arteries leading to heart nine years ago. Now there is no problem. Everything is all right. What is the life span of a non medicated stent? Whether let it remain inside or it should be removed out or it should be replaced? Please advise.

If you have no symptoms for 9 years, there is no need to change the stent, either vessels have been opened up or new vessels have taken over the role of supplying blood to heart. Heart has a net work of small blood vessels and they do become as good as new in case of requirements of more blood supply to the heart. Take care and follow prevention and treatment like you have been doing for past 9 years.

I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.
Dear Lybrate user, smoking is a choice and all choices are made by us. You can quit smoking only if you tell yourself that you can do it. Not when you accept in your mind that "you are not able to quit". You must have taken many challenges in your life - I am sure you don't want to be called a loser at this as well. You have detailed about having cough and chest pains- Its possible that you may develop infection like tuberculosis or later if you don't quit - the risk of lung cancer is also very high. Make the right choice- quit today.

Hi, lybrate-user. You may be having non cardiac chest pain. Although not necessary at your age and particularly if you do not have diabetes or high bp, you can do one tmt to clear your doubt. For non cardiac chest pain you should not worry too much. Simple analgesic may be enough.

This d3 capsule are meant to increase the levels of vitamin-d in your blood and are not meant for increasing/decreasing blood cholestrol so if you have high choletrol levels, it is nothing to do with this d3 capsule.

Dear, high bp patient can take multivitamin tablets. There is no apparent harm in it if you take it for a short period. Multivitamin tab should not be taken for a very long period without supervision of a doctor as it can accumulates in body & produce toxicity.

Hello sir.
From last one year I have heart palpitation problem. Yesterday my heartbeats gone very slow for 30 seconds...
1st degree heart blocks only delay the passage of impulse from atria to ventricles and as such there is no loss of beats so you should not read too much in this. As far as palpitations are to be considered, this may be due to your anxiety and over consciousness. Try to keep yourself busy in your routine and diverted from this. In case your PR interval gets prolonged in any subsequent examination then reassessment of cardiac function may be done.
