Before 5 day old I wake at 10.30 am and suddenly I fall in the ground. Then doctor came and checked out me and told my bp is low and some injuries occurred on my neck and head after I take medicine then after 5 minute I vomit so pls tell what wrong with me.
I'm a 35 year old male, 5'7" 158lbs, very fit, extremely active and have no heart conditions other than PVCs. I have a history of anxiety and have had an echocardiogram, holter test. Nothing wrong except for panic attacks. That being said my cholesterol is not perfect and I go out of my way to try to eat right although I'm not perfect at it. That being said my diet is FAR superior to the avg American diet. My recent lipid panel had my HDL at 38, LDL at 136 and Triglycerides at 106. VDL at 21. My LDL often fluctuates between 105 - 140 between blood draws and my HLD often is between 38 and 44. I'm working like crazy to bring up my HDL and lower my LDL a bit more by adjusting diet with more nuts, avocados and fish. I'm just always worried I'll drop dead from a heart attack at a young age because I've read stories on the internet of perfectly healthy young people in their 30s having heart attacks because of major blockage. Should I be worried? Are my Cholesterol level numbers concerning at all? I thought doing anaerobic and weight exercises 5 times a week dramatically reduced people's risk of a heart attack. Also I have no known heart disease in the family.
From last week feeling not good. I have a angina pain, little bit in chest, is there any serious problem.

I am 45 yearsenal old and my bp is 140/90. I am fit and take a high fibre diet including dry fruits as walnuts etc. I don't want to take any medication and want to keep myself off the medication. Can I manage to stay healthy without any antihypertensive medicines?

The heart is a muscular organ and beats at regular intervals. This is known as heart rate, which indicates a person’s overall health. In a normal healthy individual, it ranges from 60 to 100 depending on overall health status. A heart rate outside of these ranges is usually a cause for concern.
Bradycardia is when the heart rate is below 60. While this could be a sign of fitness and health in some, it could also mean an underlying cardiac condition in others. Low heart rate is seen in many athletes, who normally have a heart rate below 60, with no symptoms or problems.
However, in others, slow heart rate can be an indication of an underlying heart problem. The electrical system in the heart could be affected, leading to alteration in blood supply to the heart and other vital organs. This needs further investigation and management to restore normal cardiac function.
Causes: Some of the reasons for reduced heart rate include:
- Normal aging process, as with all body functions, aging slows down the heart’s electrical function, leading to reduced heart rate
- Heart conditions like coronary artery disease, hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart attack, and infections of the heart muscles (endocarditis or myocarditis)
- Pulmonary conditions like sleep apnea
- Hormonal conditions like hypothyroidism
- Metabolic conditions like increased potassium
- Increased iron accumulation in the body
- Medications like beta-blockers and digoxin
Symptoms: While bradycardia does not cause symptoms in some, in others, where it has an associated medical condition, the following would be seen too:
- Extreme levels of fatigue, with near-fainting episodes
- Regular bouts of dizziness
- Shortness of breath with even minimal activity
- Weakness, tiredness, and low energy levels
- Chest pain bouts
- Lack of mental energy and confusion
- Memory problems
Complications: If left untreated, bradycardia can cause:
- Fainting spells, where the patient may just collapse in the midst of an activity
- Heart failure, where the heart is not able to pump enough blood
- Sudden cardiac death
Risk factors: If you have any or some of the following, do not ignore bradycardia.
- Age (more common in older adults)
- Heavy alcohol abuse
- High levels of emotional stress
Treatment: Once diagnosis of bradycardia and underlying disease is confirmed, treatment will be two-pronged.
- Correct underlying condition like hypothyroidism, electrolyte imbalance and infections.
- Work on managing chronic conditions like coronary disease, diabetes, and obesity.
- Prepare the patient to watch for episodes of bradycardia and ways to manage them.
While bradycardia per se is not a concern, other conditions should be managed so the heart keeps working to its optimal level. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.
