While I workout there is slight pain like sensation at centre of my chest what may b the reason. I am 26 male.
If you are working on bench press or doing weights, sometimes there might occur muscle group spasm during workout, mostly involving deltoids, trapezius, pectorals, serratus sets, and abdominal muscles. So, take precautions and follow advice of gym instructor. At metabolic level, this pain is due to wear and tear of your old muscle fibres, which get replaced with stronger fibrous bonds that add to muscle bulk. Keep hydrated and take proper nutrition and rest.

Dear Lybrateuser, your chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety - follow some precautions, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, also not more than 1-2 cups of tea, coffee in a day, chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time - take syrup Gelusil 2 teaspoonful half an hour after meals three times a day - take a tablet of Paracetamol 500 mg if pain is more - do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 20-30 min, also do yoga, deep breathing & meditation for 10-15 min daily in the morning to keep your mind & body fit if not much relief then do x- ray chest, ECG & consult a doctor.

Weakness is the most probable reason for such complaints in your age. Have meals regularly, do not stay empty stomach for long, in case of acidity or gas problem, give the complete information. Have cocconut, apple, pine apple, oranges, almonds, rasins, milk, egg etc. If it is a regular thing then get yourself checked with a doctor.

For thyroid avoid soybeans and cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli etc. For blood pressure consider low salt and freshly prepared food. Fruits and vegetables and sprouts with plenty of fluids / water and of course regular exercise.

May be sudden cerebral ischaemia due to vertebro basilar insufficiency which may be demonstrated in a carotid angiogram. Wait for reports. Then something may be possible to comment upon.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

At your age and with the medical conditions you have, you should be happy with the erections you have, harmonal therapy in your case is contraindicated as you already have a prostatic problem. Your prostatic condition may worsen with harmonal treatment. My suggestion is that you have to accept aging gracefully and try to adopt to the natural changes that a person of your age faces. If you are not satisfied with my answer please visit a urologist for further advice.

Hello dear High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
