Hi, Please follow these tips: Don't get too worried and anxious. Relax well. Avoid drinking coffee or tea after 7 PM, Take hot water bath before going to bed. Have light food and drink a glass of warm milk at night. Listen to soothing music or read some magazines while you are on bed. Keep your mobile in silent mode at night. Do not work on your laptop on the bed or watch TV till late night. Sleep in a dark and silent room. Perform meditation and yoga to keep your mind calm.

(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.

Hi lybrate-user, Chest pain is not always due to heart attack. There are numerous different causes of chest pain. Nonetheless, at whatever point you feel pain in the chest, you must visit your doctor to discount any plausibility of heart attack or different issues related to heart. This kind of chest pain is due to deterrent or fit of the coronary arteries and is known as angina. Chest pain ought not be taken daintily in any condition. When it is realized that your chest pain is not due to heart attack, then you may move ahead further to take the help of home remedies for chest pain. 1.) Garlic to Ease Chest Pain - Take 2 teaspoons of honey and 10 drops of garlic juice and, mix them in a glass of water. Drinking this solution will provide great relief to patient suffering from asthma related problems. 2.) Ginger Root to Ease Chest Pain - Place the ginger pieces in a cup. Pour hot water over it. Soak for 3-5 minutes. Have this tea while it is warm. Recommended for: Chest pain due to bronchitis related coughing, heartburn, gas in the stomach. 3.) Turmeric to Ease Chest Pain - Take ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix it with a cup of hot milk. Add 2 teaspoons of honey and somewhat dark pepper to it. Drink this milk with the help of one teaspoon of honey. Hope this helps.

The common cold& cough is the most frequent infection in all age groups. Colds are caused by a viral infection that effects the respiratory system. Colds& cough often respond well to homeopathic remedies Homeopathic medicines like bryonia alba, allium cepa, ant tart, merc sol, calc carb has geart effect on cough and cold. ADVICE -Drink plenty of fluids. Drinking 8 to 10 glasses a day will thin the mucous and make it easier for your body to expel. Try drinking extra fluid with lemon juice, or turning it into a herbal tea for additional benefits Go slow on the milk. Reduce, or stop, your consumption of dairy product. Dairy stimulates the production of of mucous, especially in those who are sensitive to it, which in turn supports the growth of viruses and bacteria.
