I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 3 days and I still get sudden panic attacks where I feel chill feeling on my hands and feeling of irregular heart beat this last for about 15 minutes and subsides. The doctor has now added ZAPIZ 0.5 to be taken in evening. With this I am not feeling the panic/anxiety symptoms. What is wrong with me should I see a Neurologist or Psychiatrist? Is this sudden feeling of panic/anxiety attack due to cilamet xl?

Dear Friend Not every person with abnormal TMT test required Coronary angiography. You could do stress echo or stress thallium to confirm coronary artery disease (CAD). It again indicate that in future you r not right candidate for TMT as it was false positive & will remain false positive foreever. You said that you had bp problem since 35. It should be evaluated. High bp in young may be bcz of thyroid problem or some kidney problem or kidney tumour which are curable type of hypertension you may have anxiety panick attack thatswhy you have some relief after giving antianxiety medication. To be summerize YOU NEED TO EVALUATE CAUSE OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AT THIS YOUNG AGE.

My 1 year old son having second time pacemaker surgery. Is there any risk in the surgery.
It is not natural for a child of age 1 to have a pacemaker; and yes, there is always a risk of a second surgery for the same cause. Please visit a super-specialty heart center for children before you take this decision. AIIMS will assist you in understanding your options better. If you give all details, they will see your son early also. God bless.

Dear lybrateuser, if you get anxious & tense your heartbeat will increase, so do some exercises like walking, light jogging, yoga, meditation, deep breathing which build your confidence & relax your mind. Have a balanced & nutritious diet & proper sleep for atleast 7-8 hrs daily.

Pain during breathing is not a cardiac pain, it may be muscular pain or bone pain (costochondritis) or originating from lungs or pleura. Get blood test & xray chest. Before that you may take paracetamol 1or 2 tab to see the effect.

Your hba1c result tells that your sugar levels are not well under control. Please bring it under control with strict diet and regular intake of medicines in adequate dose.

Hi. You do not have to take any precausions just because you have undergone open heart surgery for asd. Just once ask your surgeon doctor or your heart doctor about any particular precautions for you. Some of the heart parameters like pah etc, if they are normal, then you are allowed to do all things that you want to. Take care.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

If heart attack was treated by bypass surgery, feel it this way that he has a new life and he has to take precautions about food, exercise, no smoking, reduce stress, remain occupied with fruitful activities. Reduce his fat intake and exposure to pollution. Low levels of oxygen do trigger a heart attack. Remain with fresh plants and inhale natural oxygen for few minutes everyday.
