I am having a pain on my chest for a while now. Sometimes it radiates from the armpit to the shoulders and sometimes to the left hand. Is it some heart related problem or something else?

Dear, Heart attack symptoms typically follow a classic pattern. This list includes several common signs and symptoms of heart attacks. The person does not need to have every symptoms told here to be having a heart attack, but if two or more of the symptoms are present then it is important to call emergency. Chest Pain The most common and regularly documented symptom of a heart attack is chest pain.The pain can feel like anything, but usually is dull or aching.Heart attack chest pain is usually very steady. It doesn’t typically increase or decrease with movement or palpation (touching or pushing on the chest). It likely will come on suddenly, without warning. Chest pressure Pressure or heaviness in the chest can be independent of chest pain, but often goes together. Pain in the arm, neck or jaw Shortness of Breathing Most often, pressure in the chest makes the person feel as if he or she is being suffocated.Heart attacks can also cause fluid in the lungs, which leads to severe shortness of breath. Sweating Heart attacks cause stress on the heart and it tells the brain, which leads to the “fight or flight” stress response. Nausea Like sweating, nausea is a very common response to stress. Fatigue The same decreases in blood flow that can lead to passing out or trouble breathing also cause fatigue. Syncope As a heart attack progresses, damaged heart muscle leads to a loss of blood pressure and decreased blood flow to the brain.

I am a 35 years old male with excessive sweating on my forehead. In fact I sweat badly compared to others in a similar condition. My blood pressure varies dramatically. Since I am a codeine addict (cosistar syrup) is it the cause of all this or is it something else.

Lalit your weight is a little in excess in proportion to your height you require early morning exercises. Secondly surya namaskar exercise will surely help in all above aspects. As far as low blood pressure is concerned it requires no medicine. You should increase your daily fluid intake. So that you will feel fresl and energetic thanks.

Non invasive method for checking blockage in the heart is CT- Angio. And the accuracy of this procedure is more than 95%.This is a CT scan like any other cotrast CT scan.

I recently had viral fever along with vertigo and was hospitalized. At time time my bp was 89/53. My haemoglobin count is fine 12. But I feel dizziness and breathlessness very often. Also I've started excessive sweating in my palms. The sweat comes like water running over my hand. What should I do?

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi lybrate-user viral fever and dizziness may cause a problem called vestibular neuritis where the nerve responsible for balance may be affected by the virus. If you still feel dizziness you need to urgently do the tests mentioned below. Vestibular neuritis needs urgent treatment. Vertigo is a medical term which describes a sense if rotation even while stationary. It can often be confused with lightheadedness, generalised weakness, dizziness. Vertigo may be caused by problems in your peripheral (Ear &balance mechanism inside ear known as the vestibular system) or central nervous system.  A complete checkup is required to isolate the cause. Peripheral vestibular  system causing vertigo symptoms may need initial medications to stabilise followed by Vestibular Rehabilitation  exercises. A good quality  of life can be achieved if properly managed. * Pure tone audiometry  and tympanometry  can detect any problem in the ear nerves and tympanic membrane pressure (both of which can be abnormal in case of ear diseases) An Xray of the Cervical Spine (AP /Lat/Lat-oblique to check for cervical spondylitis CT brain and a complete  haemogram  are some of the baseline tests needed for a good evaluation  of vertigo. Hope this helps

I am a forty five year old man. I have cholesterol from last year. I tried exercising, dieting, stopped eating fatty foods and many more things. But my cholesterol is not becoming low. Please give me a solution for this.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate-user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Just try to have a oil and fat free diet for 2 months.A few changes could help protect you from this hidden condition: • Try to keep your consumption of saturated fats to a minimum. • Aim to replace saturated fats, with moderate amounts of ‘good’ fats also known as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. • Grill, steam, boil and bake foods instead of frying and roasting. • Eat plenty of fibre-rich foods. • Enjoy healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts and seeds, olives etc. • Eat at least two portions of fish per week, one of which should be oily (Choose from salmon, mackerel, sardines, pilchards or herring). • Include foods enriched with plant stanols/sterols, which are clinically proven to lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. • Stay physically active. at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise on five or more days of the week. • Avoid smoking. • Try and manage your stress levels.  Foods to avoid  Limit saturated fats and oils, such as butter, palm oil, and coconut oil. Instead, use soft vegetable oils, such as olive or canola oil.  Avoid trans fats or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. These oils go through a process that makes them solid. They're found in some hard margarines, snack crackers, cookies,and chips.  Limit fatty meats such as corned beef, , ribs, steak, ground meat, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, and processed meats . Also limit organ meats like liver and kidney. Replace with skinless chicken or turkey, lean beef, pork, lamb, and fish. Try some meatless main dishes, like beans, peas, pasta, or rice.  Limit meat, poultry, and fish to no more than two servings, or 140 g, a day. Remember that a serving is about the size of a deck of playing cards.  Limit egg yolks.  Limit milk products that contain more than 1% milk fat. This includes cream, most cheeses, and nondairy coffee creamers or whipped topping (which often contain coconut or palm oils). Instead try fat-free or low-fat milk (0% to 1% fat) and low-fat cheeses.  Limit snack crackers, muffins, quick breads, croissants, and cakes made with saturated or hydrogenated fat, whole eggs, or whole milk. Try low-fat baked goods, and use any spreads or toppings lightly.  Instead of using butter or margarine on bread, try dipping it in olive oil.  Avoid fast foods like hamburgers, fries, fried chicken, and tacos. They are high in both total fat and saturated fat. When you eat out, choose broiled sandwiches or chicken without skin, salads with low-fat dressing, and foods that aren't fried. Ask the server to leave off the cheese and high-fat dressings like mayonnaise.

Would like to know whether any harm to have cholesterol level in body above 220 for couple of months while trying to manage it with lifestyle changes along with food changes and without any medicines?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

When I stand up my blood rise to 180/90. And we I sit my blood drop to 130/78. But my heart rate get high sometime without work up my self. Heart rate at 120.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Your heart beat is faster, do let us know whether it is resting or after exercise. If heart beat is high without workout, do get thyroid profile checked. Bp has a range and your upper limit is higher at 180/90. This too can be due to high function of thyroid hormone. Do get back after monitor of pulse and bp for a week plus reports of thyroid profile.

What is Abnormal Blood Pressure?
============================
While 120/80 used to be considered normal, the new American Heart Association guidelines define three levels of abnormal blood pressure values.

120-139 / 80-89 is now considered to be �prehypertension� (or �Almost High Blood Pressure"), and doctors are watching blood pressures in this range more carefully than in the past.
140/90 is the cutoff for Stage 1 Hypertension. Stage 1 Hypertension may or may not be treated with medicines, depending on lifestyle and other risk factors.

Systolic pressures above 160, or diastolic pressures above 100, patients are classified as having Stage 2 Hypertension, a serious condition that warrants immediate medical treatment.
