If symptoms are persistent and related to exertion, consult a physician or a cardiologist. Get rule out cardiac causes if any by doing some test. Panic attack is diagnosis of exclusion if all tests are negative.

There are several things you can do to prevent an episode of acidity like: Avoid alcohol. Normally alcohol in moderation is well tolerated but for people prone to acidity even a small amount of alcohol can cause discomfort. Avoid smoking .The nicotine in the tobacco affects the opening and closing of the food pipe allowing back flow of the normal stomach acid into the food pipe. Eat small meals. Instead of 3 big meals, have 5 small meals every 3-4 hours. Eat slowly. Don’t sleep on a full stomach. Try to have an early dinner. Make sure there is a gap of 3 hours between your last meal and bed time. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Avoid certain known foods which cause acidity like, coffee, tea, colas, and citrus fruits, oily and spicy food. If your weight is high – losing a few kilos will reduce acidity too. Keep a gap of 2 hours between exercise and meals. Drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Try meditation and yoga to minimise daily stress.

Get an ECG (if possible get one when you are experiencing palpitations, Echo done and consult with a cardiologist. For cholesterol and low Hb, Take a detailed diet consult to reduce cholesterol containing and adding Iron rich food in your diet. And if ECG and Echo are normal begin with daily brisk walking and gradually increase the duration of walking to 30-40 mins. Repeat your Lipid profile and HB after 4 weeks of diet and exercise introduction, if still deranged you may need medications.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

All symptoms are due to worry, anxiety and stress. Lifestyle changes will help u. Diet: it is always important to watch your diet. You are what you eat. Eat what your body needs, reduce refined foods, processed foods and increase the amount of whole grains and fruits and vegetables. Eating small frequent meals goes a long way. Reduce intake of saturated fats; include more lean meats. Choose grilling and steaming over frying and roasting. Recommended foods - Healthy carbohydrates, Fiber-rich foods, Heart-healthy fish and Good fats. Foods to avoid - Saturated fats, Trans fats, Cholesterol and Sodium Exercise: Every week, make sure about 2 hours is dedicated to physical activity. This could include any exercise of your choice, brisk walking, swimming, cycling, aerobics, hiking, jogging, skipping, gymnastics, or playing games like football or basketball. While in most cases, the person can do these on their own, in some people, supervision may be required. Watch your weight: controlling weight to a desirable level of BMI of 18 and 23 is very important. Smoking: Another risk factor for palpitation, sleeplessness. Quitting is the best option. If not feasible, reducing smoking and gradually quitting should be aimed at. The effects on overall health will be evident almost immediately after quitting. Stress management: there is no getting away from stress. Everybody has their stresses but the trick is to manage it well. Whether it is music or meditation or medication or counselling, make sure stress levels are managed.

I am 37 years old with hypothyroidism and taking 100 mg thyronorm. My cholesterol levels are 240 total HDL 48 triglycerides 150 ldl 190 I am not using any medicine for cholesterol. I don't want to use statins because of their proved side effects. I read that ldl receptors will be decreased in hypothyroid patients which is the cause for increased ldl. I follow healthy diet and do brisk walk 45 min a day. Are there any alternatives to lower ldl cholesterol alone.

LDL of 190 is unacceptable. If with your current regimen it's not coming down then do start cholesterol reducing med. The side effects of statins are over exaggerated by ill informed press. But still if you have any reservations for statin, then you can start Ezetemibe, which though not as effective but may be a stating point.
