Hello do not take medicines on your own decision. For acidity you should take ayurveda treatment its more effective. Also you will have to make lifestyle changes. Avoid spicy food. Indigestion if any should be corrected. Regularize food eating timings. Avoid fast food. Do daily morning walk 30 mins. Do not eat late night. Revert back if problem is not solved will prescribe you effective ayurveda medicines.

Dear lybtateuser, - Your chest pain could be due to bony or soft tissue problem - do not strain like bend or lift weight or do any exercise till the pain subsides - apply pain relief gel three times a day - do hot fomentation twice a day - take a pain relief tablet after meals 2-3 times a day - do an x-ray chest to know the exact cause of pain.

It is very important for you to take up some group exercise like aerobics or zumba or sport like basketball etc. This will force your mind to begin paying attention to coordinated work. Team work will help you to stop thinking your own thoughts and make you response oriented that will help you think forward. Make it a habit to be in groups and not alone. Being physically active will help regulate mind and kind of thoughts. Life is beautiful. There are more reasons to happy. If only you look at all things positively.

Mr Somasundaram, You have not mentioned what medications you are on, for high blood pressure and for controlling blood glucose. Plus there is no mention about either blood glucose levels or BP readings. It is very difficult to comment without any of these details. Nose bleeds at times do occur with out any serious cause. Please come back with full details thanks.

Vitamin D improves Heart Function,finds new Study

A daily dose of vitamin d supplements may improve heart function in people with chronic heart failure. Vitamin d3 can be boosted by exposure to sunlight, but heart patients are often deficient in it even during the summer because older people make less vitamin d3 in response to sunlight than younger people.

In the survey (university of Leeds), 80 patients who took vitamin d3 the heart's pumping function improved from 26% to 34%.

Dear patient, as per your description it may be just anxiety or it may be gastric or heart disturbance also. But we need to rule out heart prob and gastric concerns first. For which you can attend your near by md physician. If both the above problems donot get diagnosed then it is anxiety or panic disorder only (though it is seeming like this only). Get back to me with your final report. I will help you out homeopathically, as whatever the diagnosis homeopathy has an answer and complete cure for it.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.
a healthy control of blood sugars and cholesterol is not possible only with healthy food. We doctors advocate what is called as healthy lifestyle. Which is a combination of good food, exercise and a calm and healthy mind also. Now for healthy food, you need to have balanced diet. But if you're diabetic and have high cholesterol then you need to cut down your carbohydrate and sugar intake. I. E reduce rice, and eat things with high fiber like whole wheat, maize, ragi etc. Your protein intake must also be good. But instead of non veg which would increase your cholesterol, take egg whites, (the yellow part is very high in cholesterol), germinated pulses are high in protein. Also soya. Reduce or avoid fried food and junk food and sweets and carbonated sweetened drinks like soda, cola etc. Oil can also be changed to olive oil as it is low in cholesterol. Eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Diabetics are advised to avoid bananas, mangoes, grapes, but apples with skin on, oranges and mosambi are very good. Raw vegetables and plenty of green leafy vegetables can be taken make sure you exercise at least thirty minutes a day. A walk of fifteen to thirty minutes after food would reduce your blood sugar almost as much as a tablet. Try to meditate at least ten minutes in a day.

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. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Heart Attack

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Symptoms and Diagnosis of Heart Attack

A person usually gets a heart attack when there is a blockage in the arteries of the heart. This is an emergency situation that can result in a fatality or death if it is not treated immediately. Not all heart attacks will have a crushing pain in the chest right in the beginning, there are a number of symptoms that can show the slow progression of this attack over a few hours. So how do you know if you are having a heart attack, and what kind of treatment will be required? This article seeks to answer all your questions.

Discomfort in the Chest: The patient will usually feel like there is some pressure and squeezing in the chest or pain or even fullness right in the centre. This pain can come and go every few minutes and it should not be ignored.

Pain and Discomfort in other Parts of the Body: There may be some amount of pain and discomfort in other parts of the body including the arms, the jawline, back, neck, stomach and even the teeth. This pain can also travel down to the abdomen above umbilicus. In case there is persistent pain along with the chest discomfort, then a doctor must be contacted immediately.

Other Symptoms: When you feel breathless without any reason or medical cause, and also when you experience symptoms like anxiety, indigestion, vomiting, nausea, light headedness, dizzy spells and fatigue, you may be suffering from a heart attack.

Immediate Treatment: Once you begin to experience these symptoms along with chest discomfort and chest pain, it is imperative to call the emergency unit of the nearest hospital or get in touch with a cardiologist. Until then, you will need to lie down and chew aspirin if you are not allergic to the same. This is usually more efficient that swallowing.

Diagnosis of heart attack: Heart attack is diagnosed if patient has 2 criteria out of following 3-

  1. Pain or discomfort thought to be due to heart disease

  2. ECG suggestive of heart attack

  3. Elevated levels of cardiac enzymes (CK-MB and Troponin) in blood test (these levels start rising after 6 to 12 hours of heart attack)

Once you reach doctor an ECG should be done immediately along with blood pressure and pulse. If ECG shows heart attack then immediate action needs to be taken. Remember a normal first ECG does not rule out a heart attack. So a series of ECGs may be ordered by the doctor and at proper time blood test of cardiac enzymes may be done. Ruling out a heart attack may need an observation and testing up to 6 – 12 hours as cardiac enzyme test shows results only after that period.
