I am 62 years old. Weight 70 kgs now after maintaining 68 kgs in the previous 2 years. My lipid profile is controlled by taking 1 stanlip 145 mg at night only for last 7 years. For a very marginal sugar level of 130 (fasting) &150 (postprandial), I take Glyciphage SR500 1 after lunch (2 PM) and 1 after dinner (9 PM). But for the above I am normal. I normally do some deskwork watching TV or listening to music and go to sleep after midnight. forte last 9 months or so, at about 3 am, about 2-3 hours after starting my sleep, I wake up for urination and I experience severe itching on the OUTER SURFACE ON THE TOP OF MY HEAD. Except for hair on the sides and back of my head, other middle and top portions are bald. Mainly the itching occurs on bald portions especially not on the outer surface, but quarter/half cm beneath. Itching occurs at different points or patches on the bald surface. If I scratch one itching patch/point, itching appears to vanish, but itching starts at another point/patch on the bald portion. It continues for about 30 mts to 1 hour and I go to sleep involuntarily. Itching also happens at the tip of my penis and the inner side the outer skin near the tip. After scratching intensely to the extent of getting pain and washing off, I go back to sleep and it is ok after that. This is happening in20 out of 30 days in a month. In fact the itching wakes meup and after urination it takes 30 mts to 60 mts to start sleeping again. I am in the bed from 1 to 7 am and out of this I lose 1 to 1 1.5 hrs sleep. Why is this itching happening? Pls suggest simple remedy without starting dosages of medicines.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user The blood pressure is at 100/60 mmHg because of the medicine. If there are no dizziness or other symptoms. Then kindly continue the medication. If persistently you record similar BP then you review with your doctor to possibly reduce the dose of medications. Do not stop the medication just like that.

Blood pressure is a fluctuating problem. It can change from time to time and with age. Multiple factors have a role in this. Some can be modified, others can just be managed through medications. Factors that can be modified are exercise levels and food we eat. Exercise daily for 40-45 mins, avoid caffeine, smoking and salt rich food like chips, pickles, papad, chutneys etc if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions BP is still high, you will need to take medications too, and these medications can be required for lifetime and doses may vary from time to time, so you should remain in follow up of a cardiologist.

May be it is due to smoking. Especially if it is aggravated by deep breathing. Cigarette smoke is very notorious in causing inflammation in the lungs which can in turn lead to chest pains. Also, cigarette smokers have more acidity than non smokers.

Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem - Is It Possible?

Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem - Is It Possible?

When the normal functioning of the heart shuts down suddenly due to heart disease or any other cardiovascular condition, then this is known as sudden death due to a heart problem. Every year, there are over 100,000 deaths globally due to this reason, as per various medical studies. Sudden Cardiac Arrest or SCD is a cause of death for many adults who may or may not be suffering from chronic heart disease. Let us find out more about this condition.

- Difference between Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) and Heart Attack: A myocardial infarction or heart attack can happen when there is a blockage in one of the arteries of the heart which prevents the passage of blood and oxygen to the heart's varied chambers. When the oxygen present in the blood does not reach the heart in adequate amounts and on time, it can lead to a heart attack. In the case of SCD or sudden cardiac arrest, the problem happens due to a shutdown of the heart after a malfunction in the electrical systems which can lead to varied irregularities. 

Accelerated heartbeats, fluttering and quivering of the ventricles which are also known as ventricular fibrillation, as well as other similar causes can ensure that the blood does not reach the heart on time, which can lead to sudden death. The patient usually loses consciousness within the very first few minutes as the blood does not reach the brain.

Symptoms: There are a number of symptoms that are associated with this phenomenon. While losing consciousness is one of the first signs, others include a racing heartbeat as well as heart rhythm problems and dizzy spells. The symptoms usually take place suddenly without prior warning and lead to a complete shutdown of the heart and its functions.

Causes: The main cause of SCD is a condition known as arrhythmias which is basically characterized by abnormal heart rhythms and vertical fibrillation which leads to disorganized impulses to be released from the ventricles due to which the heart cannot pump blood properly. It can lead to death within a matter of minutes if it remains untreated.

Revival: On an emergency basis, the patient will have to be given CPR by an expert at the emergency unit of the hospital. This is a manual process of retrieving the patient by pumping the chest and breathing into the patient's mouth. Portable defibrillators can also be used to revive the patient in such cases.

Risk Factors: Patients who have suffered heart attacks in the past and have a family history of heart disease and heart attacks, are at maximum risk when it comes to SCD. Also, factors like obesity and diabetes can increase the risk.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
