Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Hi, edema is the medical term for swelling. It is a general response of the body to injury or inflammation. Edema can be isolated to a small area or affect the entire body. Medications, infections, pregnancy, and many medical problems can cause edema. Causes of edema: edema is a normal response of the body to inflammation or injury. Edema can also result from medical conditions or problems in the balance of substances normally present in blood. Some of the causes of edema include: -low albumin (hypoalbuminemia) -allergic reactions -obstruction of flow -burns, life-threatening infections, or other critical illnesses can cause a whole-body reaction that allows fluid to leak into tissues almost everywhere -edema and heart disease (congestive heart failure). When the heart weakens and pumps blood less effectively, fluid can slowly build up, creating leg edema. If fluid buildup occurs rapidly, fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema) can develop. If there is heart failure of the right side of the heart, oftentimes edema can develop in the abdomen, as well. -edema and liver disease -edema and kidney disease -edema and pregnancy -cerebral edema (brain edema) -numerous medications can cause edema get a thorough examination and investigation done by your doctor for correct diagnosis.

Angina (Chest Pain)

Angina (Chest Pain)

Angina is chest pain or discomfort you feel when there is not enough blood flow to your heart muscle. Your heart muscle needs the oxygen that the blood carries. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. It may feel like indigestion. You may also feel pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back.

Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common heart disease. CAD happens when a sticky substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, reducing blood flow.

There are three types of angina:

  • Stable angina is the most common type. It happens when the heart is working harder than usual. Stable angina has a regular pattern. Rest and medicines usually help.
  • Unstable angina is the most dangerous. It does not follow a pattern and can happen without physical exertion. It does not go away with rest or medicine. It is a sign that you could have a heart attack soon.
  • Variant angina is rare. It happens when you are resting. Medicines can help.

Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina. If you have chest pain, you should see your health care provider.

Also Im an daily walker of around 5 kms. Need your valuable suggestions.

Hello Considering you had minor heart attack around 2 years back, you should avoid it. If you still want to climb stairs then you should climb them slowly and stopping regularly in between. Your cardiologist may prescribe nitrates medicines which will be helpful before climbing. You are advised to consult him.

Good evening dear doctors. Im a 20 year old student of engineering . I am a mechanical engineer .so having said that. Im obese I way 100 pound and my hight is 5" 9 inch.now I eat a hell lot of junk food exercise less. And also remain quite depressed most of the times. Now sir/man. The thing that happened was that I experienced a sudden chest pain so bad that I fell from mh bed clutching my chest. But thought that it might be caused due to some nerve damage or something but that pain in chest has not gone in even 3 month now. I have had an ecg and blood test only. Blood test shows cholesterol of 240 .i have gone to 8 doctors. And all are just dismiising my claims. And say its probably an inflammation. Even mg Y family now is not siding with my pain and say that im faking it. Please doctors I need some advise .i do not know what to do. Should I go to a hospital. Or a cardiologist. I have shown one but all diss me due to young age. What must I do please advise step wise.

No details about various test reports. You should see a Consulting Physician for a detail one time check up to explore all possibilities. TMT Stress test will also to be done. There could be many different causes. If everything turns out to be normal you must adopt strict life style changes like regular exercise, strict diet, avoid sugar and oily food. And periodical check up from same physician as a follow up. Your ideal body weight should be 78 Kg Maximum.
