Congestion on chest since yesterday morning. Visited an emergency nearby and they gave medicines, injections and got a little relief, but today congestion still persists.

If you are on this medicine for long, now you should change it as some advanced medicine are available which can control acidity more effectively than zentac. Rest is dietary modifications and stress free life will help you alot perticularly acidity.

I feel pain my chest. N sometimes this pain goes to my stomach n back what medicines should I take.
Whenever you do breathing in and out you will feel pain in the upper back, middle back and also the pain will radiate upwards until the shoulder and also up to the chest. You might feel chest congestion and tightness and that be due to gastric trouble. Kindly do breathing exercises which might help you to get reduced with pain in the back and shoulder. Drink hot water to reduce the gastric trouble. Kindly consult gastroenterologist if you doesn’t improve.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Yes you can have garlic but along with that you have to keep an eye on your BP. Take salt a little less according to your taste. Have freshly cooked vegetables and fresh fruits in your diet. Don't starve for long hours.

What is the reason heart strokes coming in young age below 30 when we need cardiac checkups.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

What is the reason heart strokes coming in young age below 30 when we need cardiac checkups.
Stroke is blockage of blood supply to brain,similar to a heart attack when blood vessels supplying blood to the heart get blocked. Reasons are same ,so are the ways to prevent.Stop smoking/exposure to pollution, less of bad fats like transfats and some good fats like 5 gms of pure ghee/butter, daily exercise, keeping sugar & cholesterol under control,taking less stress, meditation and yoga and Not Taking Everything to Heart. Cholesterol related plaque is the cause of blocks in vessels and it is advisable Not to give Pizzas/Burgers/junk food to kids even , take more green vegetables and seasonal fruits. Cholesterol + blood sugar should be checked 20 on wards at least once a year , if high then diet control is the best medicine. You have written that you have had a cardiac arrest in the past and you are only 30! you suffered from gastric ulcers also which are no longer affecting you , there must be some proof like gastroscopy to reassure you about No ulcers in the stomach. Both of these illnesses are due to stress and wrong eating habits , I am sure by now you are counselled well about Diet and relaxation , If not get back here for more help.

Hypoglycemia means "less-than-normal blood sugar level" (ie, less than 70 mg%). All medicines taken for Diabetes can cause hypoglycemia. However, Insulins & certain drugs like Glibenclamide (Daonil) are more risky than others. The symptoms of hypoglycemia are: sweating, tremors, sudden thirst or hunger, palpitations, giddiness, fatigue, tiredness, etc. Some or all of these symptoms may be present. They usually occur when the patient has skips a meal or exercises more than usual or takes an over dosage of the medicine. If you or your dear one has symptoms of hypo, give him/her something sweet to eat IMMEDIATELY & then take him/her to the doctor. Hypoglycemia, if severe, can lead to coma & even death.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your chest & shoulder pain could be due to muscular or bony problem - give rest to the part, do not bend, lift weight or do exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation twice a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - if still pain is there take a pain relief tab after meals - do an x- ray chest & consult a doctor.

My blood pressure remains low and I experience black outs occasionally. What should I do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
When your bp goes down you can take coffee. And go for test to confirm hypotension. Test. Echo. Blood pressure is a measurement of the pressure in your arteries during the active and resting phases of each heartbeat. Here's what the numbers mean: systolic pressure. The first (top) number in a blood pressure reading, this is the amount of pressure your heart generates when pumping blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. Diastolic pressure. The second (bottom) number in a blood pressure reading, this refers to the amount of pressure in your arteries when your heart is at rest between beats. Current guidelines identify normal blood pressure as lower than 120/80 mm hg.

Only 1 sent should work like a shock treatment so that blockages are removed from rest of body including heart and brain. Give him minimum fats, no transfats, some good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items are available in the market. Simple walks as exercise. People do vouch for apple cider vinegar and lemon juice plus a spoon of honey added to it -it does remove the blockages, so does pomegranate, no harm or side effects.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You can do regular exercise like walking, jogging, swimming, cycling for 20-30 min, do moderate weight lifting at least twice in a week, do yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min daily morning which will help relax your mind & body & also will bring down your heart rate - destress yourself by reading, listening to music, following a hobby - sleep well for at least 7-8 hrs at night to keep you refreshed the next day.

I am getting mental tension I am getting bp more how can that tension be reduced help me.
Life is full of challenges. See what is the cause of your tension. Are you happy with your family life and what are you studying presently? what are your dreams? decide your goals and try to achieve it step by step. Understand your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. When life is difficult, we have minimum 2 choices - one is - keep complaining and keep failing, second is - take charge of your life and try to face the difficulties, and try to solve it. Make best possible efforts.
