Dear lybrateuser, at your age it is quite unlikely that you have a heart problem. -have eno salt after meal & an antacid tablet. -get yourself investigated & checked up by a doctor to know the exact causeof the pain& take proper treatment for it.

You should take coffee and black salt twice daily to increase your bp. Increase your fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption do check with your doctor also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high carbohydrate foods such as bread rice pasta and potatoes. The proper treatment for this condition depends on the exact cause.

You are 22 and living in nainital, it will be worth getting cardiac check up done for sugar and lipids and ecg and halter tests plus blood pressure and get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum. Regarding hospital I am a delhi based doctor and can recommend nhi at eok for routine check up. Just for information for everyone reading this these people have bpl category beds too and a subsidised treatment is offered provided the person carries a genuine bpl card but after getting booked for treatment, there's no discrimination between classes of people in icu.

Any medicine which taken for long in high doses this leads to side effects, but here in your case I am not finding high doses you need to get your ear checked and get audiological report, humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Now a days tinnitus maskers are available which help you to lead your life peacefully.

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 .

10 Tips For Healthier Heart

Here are some tips to help you look after your heart. 

1. Quit smoking now. Twelve months after quitting, your increased risk of dying from heart disease will be half that of a continuing smoker. 

2. Improve your diet. Include wholegrain cereals, legumes, fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts in your diet and lower your risk of heart disease. 

3. Exercise regularly. Walk briskly for 30 minutes a day and reduce your risk of heart attack by one third.

4. Maintain your friendships. People with supportive friendship networks are at less risk of heart disease.

5. Eat more fish. Oily fish like tuna, sardines or salmon are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and will boost your good cholesterol. 

6. Switch your chocolate choice. Switch from milk chocolate to dark chocolate. When eaten in moderation, dark chocolate is good for your heart.

7. Limit your alcohol. It is recommended you limit yourself to no more than two standard glasses of alcohol a day if you are a man, or one glass a day if you are a woman.

8. Avoid salty and high sodium foods. Don't add salt when preparing or eating your meals. 

9. Have a diabetes test. Uncontrolled diabetes can damage your artery walls and contribute to heart disease.

10. Make fitness fun. Choose activities that combine exercise and socialising like pilates, water aerobics, dancing, cycling or yoga.
