My breast size used to be 38 and since I started to have sex occasionally, it is pushing 42 now. As a result of which, I always or may be most of the times have pain in shoulders and back, sometimes even unbearable. What all should I do or can be done to get rid of the pain? What all options do I have? Thanks. And moreover, from the last couple of days, I find unusual hardness in both my breasts as a whole and not any specific area, I can belly touch them. They hurt a lot. What do I do? Please help. Thanks again.

Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do 'Ultrasound Examination of Breasts'. Wearing a well fitting bra may help. If you are taking any medicine/ pills or nutritional supplement on regular basis then it may be due to side effect of that. You can also apply cold compress.

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. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.

My husband has fluctuations in BP for the last 1 month. His BP went upbto 200 and at columbia asia they did all the tests to rule out triggers. Thyroid adrenal ct scan, sleep study brain Holter test kidney tests etc and all thresults are normal. They have put him on stresspress xl 50 mg 101 and minipressxl 5 mg 001. Also ecosprin 75 one in the afternoon. Despite all these he still has head reeling And cannot do normal work. He feels tired and lays down most of the time. What is your advice?

You can try Homeopathy for him which is safe and effective due to its holistic approach towards health. He should also start exercising everyday (start with brisk walk for 20-30 mins ). He can also benefit from Yoga and pranayam. You can contact me for a private consultation.

Hi, Today I was going through a medical examination and found that my bp is 100/70. I am a female of 27 years age. Is that a normal range or low ? If no, then what precautions should I take to make it a normal range.

Dear lybrateuser, - Do not worry, your bp is in the normal range - if it goes lower & you have symptoms like headache, dizziness or tiredness then it is a cause of concern - to maintain a normal bp have a well balanced diet, do regular exercise, sleep well & keep stress low & body weight in the normal range.

Your lipid profile seems to be within normal range, so maybe your can plan to reduce rosuvas under medical guidance as well. Your BP medications also have an impact on the heart functioning. If you are able to monitor your lifestyle, nutritional diet, stress control and detoxification under professional guidance you will be able to reduce all medication to basic minimum and lead a more healthy life. Uniell your health parameters do not change positively, making changes in the medicines may not be good. You can always opt for integrative heart/BP treatment which is non -invasive and good results. Please call on us through Lybrate for details.

Overweight and Obesity-Related Health Problems

Overweight and Obesity-Related Health Problems
Coronary Heart Disease : As your body mass index rises, so does your risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). This can narrow or block the coronary arteries and reduce blood flow to the heart muscle. Obesity also can lead to heart failure.
High Blood Pressure : Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. If this pressure rises and stays high over time, it can damage the body in many ways.
Stroke : An area of plaque can rupture, causing a blood clot to form. If the clot is close to your brain, it can block the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain and cause a stroke. The risk of having a stroke rises as BMI increases.
Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease in which the body's blood glucose, or blood sugar, level is too high. In type 2 diabetes, the body's cells don't use insulin properly. At first, the body reacts by making more insulin. Over time, however, the body can't make enough insulin to control its blood sugar level. Diabetes is a leading cause of early death, CHD, stroke, kidney disease, and blindness. Most people who have type 2 diabetes are overweight.
Abnormal Blood Fats : If you're overweight or obese, you're at increased risk of having abnormal levels of blood fats. These include high levels of triglycerides and LDL ("bad") cholesterol and low levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol. Abnormal levels of these blood fats are a risk factor for CHD.
Metabolic Syndrome : A diagnosis of metabolic syndrome is made if you have at least three of the following risk factors:
• A large waistline. This is called abdominal obesity or "having an apple shape." Having extra fat in the waist area is a greater risk factor for CHD than having extra fat in other parts of the body, such as on the hips.
• A higher than normal triglyceride level (or you're on medicine to treat high triglycerides).
• A lower than normal HDL cholesterol level (or you're on medicine to treat low HDL cholesterol).
• Higher than normal blood pressure (or you're on medicine to treat high blood pressure).
• Higher than normal fasting blood sugar (or you're on medicine to treat diabetes).
Cancer : Being overweight or obese raises your risk for colon, breast, endometrial, and gallbladder cancers.
Osteoarthritis : Osteoarthritis is a common joint problem of the knees, hips, and lower back. The condition occurs if the tissue that protects the joints wears away. Extra weight can put more pressure and wear on joints, causing pain.
Sleep Apnea : Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. A person who has sleep apnea may have more fat stored around the neck. This can narrow the airway, making it hard to breathe.
Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome : Obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) is a breathing disorder that affects some obese people. In OHS, poor breathing results in too much carbon dioxide (hypoventilation) and too little oxygen in the blood (hypoxemia). OHS can lead to serious health problems and may even cause death.
Reproductive Problems: Obesity can cause menstrual issues and infertility in women & low sperm count in male.
Gallstones : Gallstones They're mostly made of cholesterol. Gallstones can cause stomach or back pain. People who are overweight or obese are at increased risk of having gallstones. Also, being overweight may result in an enlarged gallbladder that doesn't work well.
Treatment or precautions to avoid Obesity:
1. Diets : to promote weight loss are generally divided into four categories: low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-calorie, and very low calorie
2. Exercise : muscles consume energy derived from both fat and glycogen. Due to the large size of leg muscles, walking, running, and cycling, increase muscle mass in Gym are the most effective means of exercise to reduce body fat.

Why is cidmus 200 given when the patient is already taking cidmus 100. After a stent operation is done is another angiography required after one year.

Cidmus is given for heart failure treatment. It is started at a low dose (50 to 100 mg) and slowly increased to a target dose of 200. If a person is doing fine, and NO ACTIVE issues are present, routine angiography after 1 years just to take a look at the stent is not recommended. While this is generally true, each individual case is unique in itself and deserves a dedicated assessment before a decision for angiography is made. Take care.

Hi, Please follow these tips to stop snoring: - Reduce your weight if you are obese. - Perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - Quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - Quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - Sleep on sides instead on back. - Elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - Clear the nose before going to bed. - Establish regular sleep pattern. - Keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - Perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - Anti snoring appliances can also be used. Aspirin is usually advised as blood thinner.
