My father in law who is 61 yrs now had undergone angioplasty in 2007. The stent was inserted through the right side. From last year there is numbness (less sensation) on the right thigh and pain occurs when he stands for a long time or walks for about 2 kms. Is it due to the operation or some other cause? kindly advice.

How can I reduce blood pressure without taking medicine and my blood pressure around 150 what should I do?
You can keep your blood pressure in check by eating healthy with less salt and sugar, fat and junkies, more vegetables and fruits, jogging, sleeping well, avoiding tension and stress and more importantly not shying away from medicine if your bleed pressure is still high despite all these. Thank you.

I am facing pain in left side of the chest since 2 days and some times I am facing shortness of breath this is happened earlier 2 months ago so I consulted pulmonoligist he advice me to have tests like CBP ECG PFT so I done those tests everything was normal in that tests so doctor advice me to take tablets for 1 month those tablets are montair-FX and nexito plus so I used that medicines for month then there was no problem again the same problem arises now.

Most likely to be myalgia chest. ( muscular pain). The pain restricts total expansion of chest, hence shortness of breath. Do breathing exercises taking long deep breath despite pain, this will stretch the intercostal muscles and at normal expansion the pain will disappear so there will be no holding of breath halfway.

1) you are heading for menopause 2) medicines given to heart patients are blood thinners which increase the cycle & bleeding 3) if you approach a nearby doctor, the tendency is to give hormones to stop bleeding, but bleeding becomes worse on rebound. 4) most of women suffer from silent bp, means a borderline bp & take no medicines for it, increase pressure in blood vessels make bleeding worse. My advice is 1) get an ultrasound done to rule out fibroids or any other cause 2) take evecare, himalaya syrup spoon three times a day 4) stop hormones if taken and stay miles away because they are a stimulus for cycle and around menopause the hormone levels decline 5) ask your heart doctor if you can avoid blood thinners for few months (take haldi instead) 6) avoid everything in food given after delivery diet like ajwain, heeng, jeera, non veg ginger, garlic, dates and chyavanprash type of tonics 7) take lots of calcium in natural form like milk, curds, cottage cheese, fruits and vegetables 8) lots of vitamin c in oranges or plain lemon water as much as you can 9) vitamin c & calcium gives strength to fragile blood vessels. Get back here with ultrasound report & progress after a month, I have not suggested a biopsy test as it may lead to more bleeding.

More medical history would be needed for an exact diagnosis like when does the pain occur, how long does it stay etc. Please get the following eliminated. Spondylitis. Also get your bp measured and ecg done. If body ache is in bony areas get your calcium and vit d (oh3) assayed and a bone density done.

Hi, ectopic heartbeats are small changes in a heartbeat that is otherwise normal. These changes lead to extra or skipped heartbeats. Often there is not a clear cause for these changes. They are mostly harmless. Ectopic beats may be caused or made worse by smoking, alcohol use, caffeine, stimulant medicines, and some street drugs. In adults, ectopic heartbeats are common and no treatment is needed most of the time.

Palpitations are the sensation of your heart beating and are common. Most cases are harmless. They usually only last for a short time and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as breathlessness, dizziness, chest tightness and a feeling of anxiety. Palpitations that are severe or don't settle quickly may need urgent medical attention. The most common causes are mentioned below.

Dear lybrateuser, -The rapid heartrate could be due to exposure to heat for a long time -avoid going out during peak heat hours of the day especially during afternoons -keep yourself well hydrated drink 2-3 litres of water in a day & if you sweat more increase your intake.
