For backache -\ get a mri done to pin point the cause and site of pain. Meanwhile go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti (specialised panchakarma procedure for backpains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that you may consult me privately over lybrate. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

Hello lybrate-user, the ideal weight determined by your height and for you falls around 80 we have to understand that losing weight is 80 % diet and 20 % exercise. By all means you have to change your diet and decrease your overall calorie intake to lose weight. A recheck on his diet plan should help. Some general things you should follow to lose weight and control his blood pressure are. 1) try maintaining blood pressure upper under 135 and lower under 85mm hg with lifestyle and medication 2) if overweight, losing weight should be a priority, try achieving bmi less than 25 3) 40-45 mins of aerobic exercise daily 4) be regular with your medication, don't skip doses or stop abruptly. 5) in diet -low salt. Max 3 gms a day. - avoid preserved food as all preservatives have salt. - no pickles, papads, chips, farsan as all have high salt and. - atleast 2 serving of fresh fruits in a day. - 1 serving 35-40 gms of nuts like walnuts, almond to be included - if you take fish 2 serving of fatty fish per will like salmon. -avoid red meat, egg yellow, fried and spicy oily food - may shift to better oils like olive in cooking 6) may consider supplements, like cod fish oil capsules, flax seeds, chia seeds, krill oil as they have good content of omega 3 fatty also losing weight is a slow process, by holistic approach of diet and exercise you will loose weight permanently and so you should encourage him to continue an healthy lifestyle. Do continue medication for hypertension as you are taking and if no, keep a tab on the pressure reading and consider starting one after ruling out other secondary causes of hypertension. Also get you sugars, cholesterol and thyroid checked once. Medication for decreasing weight are not effective and may cause side effects. As you are young you not morbidly overweight you may follow diet and exercise, if still unsuccessful we would consider starting one.

Concor contains bisoprolol which is a beta - blocker. They are known to cause erectile dysfunction. You can stop concor and start Tab Nevy 5mg once a day .It is also a beta -blocker but doesn't cause erectile dysfunction. Keep monitoring your BP and heart rate and give me feedback.

You should start brisk walking for 45 Minutes. Also change your eating habits. You are grossly over weight. Reduce your cereal and fat intake. Do every thing possible to reduce weight. In the mean time consult a local Doctor and take medicine to keep sugar in control. The medicine will reduce gradually as you loose weight. I must say again that weight is your biggest enemy. Your ideal weight should be 70 Kgs.

Dear lybrateuser, -to get rid of the medication you have to divert & keep your mind engaged so that your anxiety reduces, -do follow a moderate exercise routine like walking, jogging, cycling for about 30 min in the morning -do meditation & yoga to relax your mind, listen to music, deep breathing exercises for 10 min -have a healthy & balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables -follow a proper sleep, awake schedule so you get up refreshed in the morning ready to face the day.

At your age menopause is very likely what is producing all those symptoms. Bp will vary and I wouldn' t worry about it. You will very likely need medication to ease the rigors of menopause and medication with homeopathy will ensure a hassle free transition. Do let me know what you decide. Dr. J tikari
