No need to worry. Nothing is wrong with you its the stress you take increases your palpitations once you start avoiding taking stress.

It feels like you are having knee Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can occur at any time of life but the incidence increases with age. It usually affects people over 40 years of age. There is no cure for osteoarthritis but the progression of the disease can be slowed and pain and disability reduced. Treatment options include: Healthy body weight: Maintaining a healthy body weight will reduce stress on the arthritic joints. Nutritional supplements Supplements such as glucosamine have been reported to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and halt, or even reverse. So please try to take this supplement once a day. Exercise Exercise can assist with the maintenance of muscle strength and the mobility of arthritic joints. Activity at a level that does not cause pain is not thought to worsen osteoarthritis. Non weight-bearing exercises such as swimming or aqua jogging in a heated pool may be beneficial. Range-of-motion and stretching exercises will help maintain the maximum possible movement in the joint. Stretching will help maintain or restore flexibility to the joint’s muscles and tendons. Cycling is a good exercise. You can apply cold or heat several times a day to reduce your knee pain. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting. See a Physiotherapist for detail exercises programme and management. Best wishes.

Can I safely stop atorvastatin 20 mg OD (which I have taken for 12 years after ANGIOPLASTY (along with clopidogrel 75 A and telmisartan 40 mg OD)) because my BP. As well as cholesterol have for years remained normal. Last 2 months I feel pain (+ numbness) in different parts of body which goes off but comes back.

Why ativan is being taken at 11 pm? so naturally she will get sleep around 3 am. Why so late going to bed? as that is your main concern. You have to change the daily routine. She should have dinner around 7 - 7.30 pm and take ativan tab and go to bed around 9 - 9.30 pm for the medicine to be effective. To achive this she has to stop watching tv by 8 pm and read some books or magazines or meditate and maintain general relaxed mood. To do that other family members have to cooperate to maintain the peaceful atmosphere and help her in maintaing the timings. Do not get on to the bed until bed time. As she is practicing meditation, have it in the evening also and learn and practice" bhraamari" yoga practice morning and evening which will help her to fall asleep. For all this the other family members have to cooperate in closing the tv and maintaining silence. Change will not come in a single day, but by persistance she can have good sleep.

Cardiomyopathy - Decoding the Types + Treatment

Cardiomyopathy -  Decoding the Types + Treatment

The heart muscle is the central pumping machine that ensures that blood flow throughout the body is maintained and all other organs have a regular supply. One of the conditions that can cause this organ to malfunction is cardiomyopathy, wherein the heart is unable to pump the blood to all parts of the body. This condition can even lead to heart failure and is something that needs to be addressed and diagnosed quickly.

Symptoms of Cardiomyopathy
Early stages of cardiomyopathy may be difficult to detect externally, although it may be slowly reducing your heart’s capacity. Symptoms that start showing in later stages may include:

  1. Constant fatigue, even without physical activity
  2. Fluid may build up and thus cause bloating within the body
  3. Persistent coughing while lying down
  4. You may have irregular heartbeats that may sometimes be quite rapid
  5. Due to the lack of blood supply, you may feel lightheaded, dizzy and might even cause you to faint
  6. Even the slightest of exertions will cause breathlessness and exhaustion and you may even feel this symptom while at rest
  7. Intermittent chest pain

Causes of Cardiomyopathy
Causes of this condition may vary from patient to patient, although certain common factors include:

  1. Genetic reasons where one or both parents are susceptible to this condition
  2. Metabolic problems such as obesity, diabetes or thyroid problems
  3. Substance abuse such as anabolic steroids, amphetamines cocaine or even the consumption of excessive alcohol
  4. High blood pressure for prolonged periods
  5. Nutritional deficiencies
  6. Side effects of drug treatments such as the use of certain chemicals in chemotherapy

Types of Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy has multiple types; depending on what causes them and also certain specific symptoms. These are:

  1. Restrictive cardiomyopathy
  2. Dilated cardiomyopathy
  3. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  4. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  5. Unclassified cardiomyopathies

Treatment for cardiomyopathy
The treatment of these various forms of cardiomyopathy will vary depending on the type and also the stage and condition of the heart. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Lifestyle changes
  3. Surgeries such as Septal myectomy, Septal ablation and Radiofrequency ablation
  4. Implantable devices such as Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator or ICD
  5. Ventricular assist devices
  6. Heart transplant in the worst case scenarios. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.
