Heart palpitations are a feeling that your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering. You may notice heart palpitations in your chest, throat, or neck. Heart palpitations can be bothersome or frightening. They usually aren't serious or harmful, though, and often go away on their own. Most of the time, they're related to stress and anxiety or to consumption of stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. Palpitations also often occur during pregnancy. In rare cases, palpitations can be a sign of a more serious heart condition. Therefore, if you have heart palpitations, make arrangements to see your doctor. And seek immediate medical attention if along with palpitations, you experience shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or fainting. A thorough physical examination and Medical History of your problem is required to rule out for any underlying cause. If an underlying cause is found, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate palpitations. If your palpitations are not related to an underlying cause, lifestyle changes, including stress management and the avoidance of common triggers, can help prevent them. Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you . ACONITE NAP 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 5-10 minutes during increased heart beat .Take it till your heart beat is normal.

Can a chronic anxiety cause heart problem or heart failure? I want to know the details pls to avoid it.
Dear Lybrateuser, -Chronic anxiety can cause heart palpitations but not heart failure, the heart beat becomes faster & pounding leading to the phobia that something might happen to the heart -do not get worked up & fear a situation, before facing he same calm yourself by analyzing it & the way you will face it -do relaxation techniques, do meditation & deep breathing exercises in the morning for 10-15 min daily -do walking, jogging for 20 min, also do moderate weight lifting in the gym at least 2-3 times a week, play outdoor games ,all these will help you build body as well as your confidence -to relieve stress read, listen to music, follow a hobby, meet friends & family members talk to them -try to have a peaceful sleep for at least 7-8 hours at night -have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains & 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion -if not much relief consult your doctor for medication.

Mr., if he has diabetes (high blood sugar) and high bp, then proper treatment with appropriate drugs should be taken. In addition he should take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on his ideal body weight (70 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. He should exercise for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. That helps better sugar control and also in reducing bp. He should consume less salt in the diet and avoid papad, pickles and extra salt while taking food. To control sugar level he should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, farsan, high fat milk products and sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you are looking for specific drugs to be taken then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, lipid profile, bp readings, amount of walking done daily and dietary pattern. Looking at those details I will be able to give specific guidance, thanks for the question.

May be you need advice from a dietician! broadly speaking I can tell you to reduce sugars, carbs, fats, but not simple proteins, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and simple walk as an exercise. Drink a glass of warm water with juice of a lemon + spoon of honey on empty stomach every day in morning, this too reduces the weight, besides bringing down sugar and cholesterol.

(1)what is the safe difference between systolic and dystolic pressure (2) systolic pressure increase or dystolic pressure increase which is more important and dangerous (3) can there be difference in the bp measured in right hand and left hand. (4) are the readings of electronic bp measuring instruments such as omron with hand cuff are reliable.(5) what is the optimum time to measure bp at home regularly with omron and in which position. (6) is it true that once tablets are being taken for bp control it cannot be stopped for life time.

1. Systolic bp is the presure that blood exerts on walls of arteries during heart contractions. Its normal range is 120-139 mm of hg. Diastolic bp is the pressure of blood on walls of arteries when the heart is at rest between contractions. Its normal range is 80-89 mm of hg. So the safe difference between both is apprx. 30-40 mm of hg 2. Although both r important but in topical countries like india systolic bpis more important as its increase indicates hypertension and its dangerous as most of the cases of high bp remains undetected due to poor knowledge of regular health chk ups nd ignorance in under developed countries like ours. 3. There is almost zero difference of bp in both arms. If there is a difference then it can be suggestive of some arterial disease. 4. According to me these imported gadgets r made according to western climate standards and there iss a possibility that readingss may vary in hot countries like ours. 5. If you r hper or hypotensive then a regular chk up of bp is required every week. If normal then check up after 3-4 months is required. 6 it depends. Firstly u must be having a strong knowledge of your problem, its limitations, nd what all u can do to overcome it, only then u can get rid of the medicine. Actually once hypertension is detected we indians start taking medicines on aregular basis without future consultations nd this is the start of problem. So be determined to avoid medicine as much as u can but for that proper knowledge is required. Medicine is a must when u have a problem but dont be a slave of these medicines but take their help timebeingly as our body has a power of self healing. Actually we r weak and underestimate ourselves.

Dear lybrate-user, You need medication to control cholesterol no doubt. Protein digestion and cholesterol synthesis bot happen in the liver. Take more care and treatment to strengthen the liver function for better and long lasting results. The combination of medicines has been worked out by your Doctor.

A person becoming "hyper and angry" has no direct relationship to either high blood pressure or thyroid related disease. It is just the nature of the person. Only thing one has to do is make him/her learn to relax and avoid reacting immediately. If she is on treatment for hypothyroidism then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Similarly BP should be maintained 120 -130 / 70 - 80 mm Hg. Since no current readings have been mentioned, the above levels are suggested. Thanks.

You can take a beta blocker like metoprolol 50 mg when you feel palpitations but that is not a permanent solution. Get investigated for thyroid and heart & anemia.

Symptom-typical one is shooting pain in the chest on left side radiating towards left arm and hand , but it can mimic gastric symptoms like vomittings or breathlessness, fainting or blackouts.Pain after angioplasty stays for few weeks as major vessel has been punctured to do the test like angiography followed by angiography to remove the blockages.

Dear Lybrateuser, - As your pain is more on inhalation & movement it may be due to muscular or bony problem - avoid exertion, bending, lifting weight, exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation three times a day - take pain killer tablet if pain is more after meals - do x- ray chest to find out the cause, consult a doctor if not much relief.
