What is the basic reason behind heart attack?
Like any other part of the body the heart muscles also need blood supply, the blood reaches the heart muscles through blood vessels called coronary arteries, sometimes these vessels can get blocked and when the blockage is significant, the heart muscles do not get oxygen and this condition is called a heart attack.

I was taking Glyvas F to lower blood triglyceride levels as per doctor's advice. Later on developed lower abdominal pain. Doctor told it was due to statin and to stop taking that medicine. I observed from some time I have lower sexual desire & less erection. I feel with time both pain & erection is little bit improved. Question is, does statin has impact on erectile function and does it need medical attention? Or just leave it now to get normalized with time?

Better to control your triglycerides level with diet (low carbohydrate diet, no alcohol, regular 30 mins exercise) if its less than 500, then no need to take any medicines.

You are suffering from side effects of tryptomer- vague pain in heart area and may be others like weight gain, nausea, mood changes, constipation etc. It is an antidepressant and you cannot wean off suddenly. Take help of doctors or kind relatives and friends, there are other ways to cope with depression minus heavy medicines and all of them carry serious side effects like suicidal thoughts. You can get routine heart check ups done, once you give up medicines to get perfect reports, if worried now, get ecg, halter & blood tested for sugar & an x ray of chest. Get back here with reports.

I am suffering from dry cough last 2 weeks and then my heart pain so you suggest me.
I advise you the followings for your condition: Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

It is likely that you are suffering from Vaata and a degree of indigestion / acidity. Take a strong purgative like castor oil (30 to 50 ml) early morning with plenty of hot water. Your stomach will flush out gas, toxins, acidity and Vaata from the body. This should help. Head hurts even when you do not get proper sleep or have a bad posture. Dehydration should be avoided. Regards.

Hi incorporate more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet while eliminating unhealthy foods. - if you are working or studying away from home, try to pack healthy lunch and snacks for yourself to avoid eating unhealthy food daily. - don't eat straight from the packet - use a plate or bowl to control how much you eat. - don't delay or skip meals. - cut down your consumption of aerated drinks and sodas. - drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Drink water after waking up and before sleeping. Being dehydrated may make you feel like you're hungry, so it is important to stay hydrated. - have homemade fruit and vegetable juices - eat 5-6 small healthy meals every 2-3 hours, every day, instead of having a few big ones. This regulates your blood sugar level and your metabolism. - don't skip breakfast, instead, make it rich with complex carbohydrates and proteins, so it can provide you with energy to get through the day. Try to include the following as your morning breakfast, oats porridge, eggs on multigrain toast or daliya with sprouts. - avoid artificial sweeteners in processed foods. - eat slowly as it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register if you're full or not. Eating too fast leads to overeating, so chew slowly to digest your food better and control how much you eat. - use a smaller plate to control your portion sizes and avoid overeating. - know your cravings and do not snack when you're emotional. It is said that you crave crunchy and savory food when you're stressed, frustrated or lonely. Figure out what you crave and replace them with healthier alternatives. - do not eat mindlessly; concentrate on your food instead of watching tv or playing with your phone to avoid overeating.

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.
