I am 28 years old I have little stress (my father expired) my b. P. Is 95/150 what precaution should I take

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Stress is a part and parcel of life now a days. Some amount of stress is actually beneficial as it improves efficiency. However one should not get too stressed out, which results in decreased efficiency in work and also leads to deterioration of personal relations. Taking regular breaks, sharing problems with friends and relatives and a rule of" never bringing work tensions at home" are some easy ways of dealing with stress. Exercising regularly, eating healthy and losing weight are few other ways which can help keep blood pressure in check as well as keeping stress levels down.

Chest pain may be caused by anything from simple chest congestion due to a cold to something far more serious such as the onset of a heart attack.

Homeopathic remedies for various kinds of chest pain

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which a patient is suffering.

The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat chest pain, but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility of the patient. For this patient’s current symptoms, past medical history and family history are taken into account. There are many homeopathic remedies which cover the symptoms of chest pain and can be selected on the basis of cause, location, sensation, modalities and extension of the pain. For individualized remedy selection and treatment of chest pain, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. In medical emergencies like myocardial infarction and pulmonary embolism, immediate hospitalization is usually required. Some important remedies are given below for the treatment of chest pain:

  • Arnica mont. – Chest pain with sore and bruised feeling.
  • Ranunculus b. – Good remedy for intercostal rheumatism, sharp stitching pain in the chest along with dyspnoea.
  • Kali carb. – Stitching pain in the chest,  which gets worse between 2-3 A.M
  • Actea racemosa. – Pain worse on the right side.
  • Bryonia – Chest pain is of stitching, burning and stabbing in nature, is worse by motion and better by rest and pressure. Thirst for large quantities of water and dryness of mucous membranes often accompanies.
  • Rumex c. – Sharp stitching pain through the left lung, often with cough.
  • Stannum – Knife like stitches, worse on bending forward and left side.
  • PhosphorusViolent tickling cough, chest pain due to tuberculosis of lungs or pneumonia along with oppression of the chest.
  • Aconite – Chest pain due to pneumonia of first stage along with anxiety and restlessness.
  • Robinia – Burning pain behind sternum due to hyperacidity.
  • Strophanthus – Chest pain is of stitching and twitching in nature and often of cardiac origin.
  • Digitalis - Digitalis is known chiefly for its action on the heart, and it is rare that a patient suffering from an affection of that organ does not get Digitalis in some form.
  • Cactus - Perhaps the most important remedy in heart affections,from the homoeopathist’s standpoint, is Cactus. 
  • Lachesis - Lachesis is the best natural Homeopathic medicine when episodes of fainting occur along with Palpitations during menopause. The women needing Lachesis have an aversion to wear any tight clothing.

I am suffering from dry cough for last 2 week and I have chest pain. Can you suggest what should be done.

Homeopath, Raebareli
I am suffering from dry cough for last 2 week and I have chest pain. Can you suggest what should be done.
Please take Bryonia 200 – once daily for next 3-4 days. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

High Blood Pressure and Kidney Disease - Causes and Symptoms!

High Blood Pressure and Kidney Disease - Causes and Symptoms!

Causes and Symptoms of Renal Hypertension

High blood pressure is characterized by an increased force that the blood exerts on the blood vessels when it moves through the body. Renal hypertension is a blood pressure disorder where the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys become narrow, as a result of which the blood pressure through these vessels increases.

Causes

It is caused when the arteries that supply blood to the kidney get narrow or get blocked. This can cause the kidney to release specific hormones that signal the body to retain water and sodium. This can put additional pressure on the blood vessels which leads to increased blood pressure. It can also be caused by atherosclerosis which is characterized by hardening of the arteries. Improper development of the arteries can also lead to renal hypertension.

Symptoms

The symptoms of renal hypertension are:

  • Feeling confused
  • Blurred vision
  • Regular headaches
  • Bleeding from the nose
  • Gradual decline in kidney function
  • Possible long-term damage to the kidney
  • Feeling lethargic and drowsy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dryness in skin
  • Muscle cramps
  • Breathing difficulties

Treatments

The diagnostic procedure for this disorder consists of blood, urine, doppler ultrasound and CT angiography or MR angiography tests. Treatments for this disorder usually include medications to ease blood pressure. Preventive measures include modifications in lifestyle such as following a proper diet, limiting smoking, restricting sodium or salt in the diet and following an exercise regimen. Steps should also be taken to reduce stress. Yoga and meditation are highly beneficial to control the condition. Sometimes intervention is needed in the form of PTRA and stenting.

LCHF diet has been proved to be good for diabetes. However it needs close monitoring and expert advice from a nutritionist or dietitian because if done wrongly it can affect other organs of the body. There is also a need to go for carb cycling during this diet every once in 15 days. For further details you can consult me online or on private chat.

Your blood sugar and cholesterol level is in the upper limit of normal. Regular exercise, diet control, weight reduction, avoiding oily and fatty food, restricting carbohydrate and sweets can bring down the sugar and cholesterol level. Repeat the test after some time. If not under control medicine has to be started.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

The purpose of the present study was twofold: (1) to investigate how many diabetic patients and types of cases that are treated with dental implants in our clinic; and (2) assess the outcome of such treatment. Medical records from 782 patients were examined in patients treated by the Brånemark method for partial or total edentulism with implant supported bridges. From these records, 25 patients (3.2%) with diabetes before implant treatment (136 implants) were identified and further studied with respect to age, gender, type of diabetes, treated jaw, degree of edentulism, bone graft, implant survival, periimplant inflammation, bleeding on probing, and radiographic bone loss. Furthermore, the patients' opinion about the outcome of the treatment was registered. The implant success rate was 96.3% during the healing period and 94.1% 1 year after surgery. Of all 38 bridges, one was lost. Few complications occurred and all patients, except for one, were satisfied with the treatment. Today, diabetic patients are being treated successfully for all types of edentulism, including bone-grafting treatment. Diabetics that undergo dental implant treatment do not encounter a higher failure rate than the normal population, if the diabetics' plasma glucose level is normal or close to normal as assessed by personal interviews.

Hello, without examination we can not diagnose it as heart attack. chest pain may be because of heart problems , lung problems, gastrointestinal problems, anxiety or panic attack. So please mention few more symptoms associated with it so that i can diagnose the cause and suggest you the medication accordingly. And check your BP and ECG test done.

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.

My heart beat per minute is about 110 is it normal what should I do to overcome this problem.

My heart beat per minute is about 110 is it normal what should I do to overcome this problem.
Dear Lybrate user, normal heart rate is 70 to 80 Beats per minute. When heart rate goes above 100 per minute, it's called a medical condition of Tachycardia. Some times Tachycardia is physiological which is considered normal, sometimes not. please visit your nearby doctor to understand this in detail. They might suggest you for few tests like complete blood count, ecg, 2d echo etc. Regular practice of yogasan and Pranayam helps in reducing heart rate. Especially Omkar, anulom vilom Pranayam is beneficial. Do learn this from authorised institute. Thank you,
