Abnormal Increase In Heartbeat - Common Causes Behind It!

Abnormal Increase In Heartbeat - Common Causes Behind It!

Postural Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS, what this condition entails is a sudden and abnormal increase in the heart beat of an individual, causing them difficulty in breathing, dizziness, and even blackouts.
There are some factors that can trigger the situation and stem the sudden rise in the heart beat. Meeting with a medical expert may help bring the situation under control.

What is Postural Tachycardia Syndrome?
Postural Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS is a cardiovascular condition that is caused due to the sudden shift from an upright position to a supine position or vice versa. It is this sudden increase in heartbeat of an individual that is referred to as Tachycardia.

The longer you overlook this condition, the bigger is the trouble you are putting your health in. This is when it becomes extremely important for you to get in touch with a medical expert, who can offer you perfect consultancy, diagnose the causes and also find a result for the same.

What Causes POTS?
According to medical specialists, there are some factors that this condition stems from and it all differs from one person to the other. Some of the most common causes of the condition are-

  1. Joint Hypermobility Syndrome
  2. Faulty Gene
  3. Poisoning
  4. Amyloidosis
  5. Lupus
  6. Diabetes
  7. Sarcoidosis
  8. Siogren’s Syndrome
  9. Cancer

Signs of Postural Tachycardia Syndrome:
There are multiple signs that indicate that an individual is stricken by Postural Tachycardia Syndrome. Some of the more common signs and symptoms include:

  1. Orthostatic Hypotension: Orthostatic Hypotension refers to the sudden increase in the heart beat by at least 30 beats per minute, within or after 10 minutes of rising up from a sitting or lying down position. Though the condition increases the heart rate, it does not trigger any drop or rise in blood pressure. Certain medications used to diminish this effect often extend some side effects, such as lightheadedness, palpitation, difficulty to breath, discomfort in the chest, weakness, heaviness in the chest area, nausea, cognitive difficulties and also stain on the vision.
  2. Effects in Response to Postural Change: Almost one-third of the people with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome are noticed to faint as a result of the increased heartbeat, almost 40 beats minutes, instead of the chance in postural position. Other symptoms under this head include a headache, migraine, disturbance in sleep, fatigue, acrocyanosis or blood pooling in feet, etc.
  3. Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome (EDS): Sometimes POTS is found to coexist in an individual with other conditions, such as EDS. This condition makes an individual prone to dislocation of bones, greater laxity in skin, loose- clicking joints, chronic fatigue, reduced level of tolerance towards any exercise, etc. According to medical specialists, though these are common symptoms of POTS, there might also be other signs. These signs and symptoms differ from one person to the other.

When Should You Consult a Doctor?
The moment you experience a POTS attack or for that matter notice some of the symptoms of the condition, it is time for you to consult a medical expert. The doctor will give you valued consultation, as well as diagnose the condition properly, thus finding the best treatment and suitable medication for you. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

BP Tablets And Erectile Dysfunction: What You Need To Know?

BP and sometimes Sugar etc treatment needs to be changed in Erectile dysfunction and since the patient sees a different doctor for erection problem, it's forgotten.So the patient keeps suffering and the communication gap increases the problems inspite of 4G in communication.Secondly some doctors over correct the BP Sugar etc and sex issues increase.

The electrolytes are so important in Erectile dysfunction and nobody seen paying proper attention to it.Also some vitamins minerals etc not absorbed and patient's patience is lost and he lands in depression by the time he reaches Sexologist like Dr Vaibhav Lunkad,he says.

Then due to depression again whether depression is cause or effect,very few understand.And a new journey from pole to pillar starts.Till then marital or financial or psychosomatic issues increase,no doubt.Now whether it's a marital discord a counselor sees or Erectile dysfunction first to be handled another chaos sets in the patients life.

Eart palpitations are abnormal or irregular heartbeats that cause a thumping or fluttering feeling in your chest — sometimes also described as "missing a beat. Palpitations can occur with heart rates that are too rapid or too slow. They can be triggered by stress, exercise, diet, medication and sometimes by a medical condition. Although heart palpitations can be a worrisome or a strange experience, they're usually harmless. In most cases, it's possible to find the cause and address it in order to reduce palpitations. Rest and take a break. Some people experience heart palpitations due to physical overexertion or being too active; however, an increased heart rate from exercise or anxiety (called tachycardia) is not the same as palpitations. Both can happen at the same time, although palpitations are defined best as unusual heart beats, not just fast heart beats. If your palpitations seem to be sometimes triggered by exercise, then stop what you're doing and rest for five to 10 minutes and catch your breath. Alternatively, reduce your exertions or change your exercise to something less strenuous. Walk instead of jogging, for example. Lift smaller weights. Gently tread water in the pool instead of doing strokes. Resting heart rates vary between people, but it's typically between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Palpitations can occur above, below or within the normal heart beat range. Reduce your stress/anxiety. Moderate-to-high levels of stress and anxiety are relatively common triggers for heart palpitations due to the release of too much "stress hormones" into the bloodstream. Thus, you may be able to prevent or reduce your palpitations by managing how you react or respond to stressful situations. Stress-relieving techniques like yoga, tai chi, deep breathing, visualization, meditation, biofeedback and aromatherapy are all helpful for promoting relaxation and better heart health. Ask at your local gym, community center, church or health clinic about joining a yoga or tai chi class. Taking deep breaths can naturally lower your heart rate and reduce the occurrence of heart palpitations, especially if you practice positive visualizations or guided imagery. Buy some relaxing aromatherapy candles (lavender scented, for example) and light them in the evenings prior to going to bed. Don't forget to get enough sleep — at least eight hours per night, although some people need a little more. A chronic lack of sleep can lead to anxiety and heart palpitations. Remove yourself from stressful situations, such as arguments. Quit focusing on financial problems. Stop watching scary movies or shows. Avoid consuming stimulants. There are a number of substances that affect your central nervous system (CNS) and can trigger heart palpitations, including alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, illicit drugs (such as cocaine and amphetamines) and some over-the-counter medications (particularly cold and cough medicines. Thus, if you're having periodic heart palpitations, consider what you're putting into your body on a regular basis, because it could very likely be the cause. Vagal maneuvers are simple actions that you can do at home to affect your vagus nerve, which is the primary one that regulates your heart rate.] Vagal maneuvers can slow your heart rate down and stop palpitations within seconds if done correctly. The Valsalva technique involves holding your breath and bearing down as if you're having a bowel movement for about 15– 20 seconds — it increases your intrathoracic pressure and stimulates the vagus nerve. The Valsalva technique can change the rhythm of electrical impulses in your heart, help your heart rate return to normal and reduce palpitations. The Valsalva maneuver shouldn't be done if you have heart disease or are advanced in age, as it may increase the risk of stroke. Activate your diving reflex. The diving reflex gets activated when your head or face gets cold for more than a few seconds — your heart rate slows down to reduce blood flow in an attempt to survive, which is helpful when submerged in cold water. To trigger this survival reflex, place very cold water or an ice pack against your face for about 10 seconds. Your heart rate and palpitations should reduce pretty quickly. Dip your face or submerge your head in cold water. Put a wet face cloth in the freezer for 30 minutes then press it against your face. Alternatively, drinking a glass of very cold water will cool the hard palate of your upper mouth and also mildly trigger the diving reflex. Vagal maneuvers are simple and generally quite safe to do, but they should be done as soon as you realize you're experiencing palpitations for best results. Do not attempt vagal maneuvers while standing — they can sometimes cause dizziness and fainting. Ry coughing a bunch of times. You can also try coughing forcefully (or clearing your throat) multiple times in efforts to move your diaphragm, increase intra-thoracic pressure, and stimulate your vagus nerve. In essence, coughing creates the same physiological effects as bearing down (the Valsalva technique), but some people may find it easier to perform. When coughing, it must be forceful enough and sustained — a single, light cough won't likely trigger a vagal response. Make sure to completely swallow any food you're eating or beverages you're drinking in order to prevent the risk of choking. If you're unsure, ask your doctor for a demonstration of vagal maneuvers.

Fighting High Cholesterol? Beat It Now!

Fighting High Cholesterol?  Beat It Now!

Deadlines to meet at work, household chores, family responsibilities, you try to manage everything. But what you end up ignoring is – your health. And this has become common for most of the adults these days. When health should be the prime concern, it, in all the hustle bustle of life, takes a backseat.

Not paying attention to our health takes a toll on health. And if any health problem isn’t arrested in time, the condition is bound to get worse. One such health issue very prevalent now-a-days, even among youngsters, is high cholesterol, which is the trigger behind many heart-related ailments, including heart attack.

What leads to high cholesterol?

There are multiple factors that play a role in spiking the cholesterol levels. Some of the prominent ones are:

  • Unhealthy diet: Food that we eat has a lot of bad fat (LDL), causing a rise in LDL and triglycerides. This builds up and blocks arteries, raising the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Hereditary factors: If you have family history of high cholesterol, then maybe it is a reason for you to start worrying. The inherited form of high cholesterol may lead to early blockages or stroke.
  • Being over-weight: Obesity or even simply being overweight is another cause of high cholesterol.
  • Sedentary lifestyle: People who spend their life sitting or lying the whole day are at a huge risk of high cholesterol.
  • Smoking/alcohol consumption: Cigarette smoking plays a significant role in your cholesterol level. It lowers the level of good cholesterol (HDL). Similarly, consuming alcohol regularly can damage liver and heart muscles, which leads to high blood pressure and causes the level of cholesterol in the body to rise.
  • Age and gender: The level of cholesterol naturally begins to rise, as you turn 20. Females after menopause can have higher level of cholesterol than men. Hence as, you age maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.

How can you control high cholesterol?

It is very important to not let your cholesterol levels rise in the body. And doing so isn’t difficult. You just have to be cautious about your eating habits and consume food which are heart healthy. Apart from food, exercising is something you must make a routine. And if you smoke or consume too much of alcohol, then you must limit that too.

Also, you can start taking multivitamins that are good for your heart. There are products available in the market like Setu Beat It which can be your savior. Setu Beat It is a highly functional multivitamin with Coenzyme CoQ10 and grape seed extracts that enhance your heart’s function, protects against increased blood pressure and fulfills the body’s need to be active.

CoQ10 is the ultimate protector of your heart and is an energy giving nutrient.

Grape seed extract has strong properties of relaxing blood tissues and is a great anti-oxidant. It breaks down free radicals that are created when you are under stress.

It also is loaded with Vitamin D3, Vitamin B12 and Folates that decrease the risk of heart disease and pave the way for heart’s wellbeing.

You have to be careful about your health, and cholesterol is something that should always be kept under check. And if time is a constraint, you can fight high cholesterol levels and simply beat it with Setu Beat It.

Dear lybrate-user Kumar Hello Thanks Latest research in psychology has shown that alcohol and cigarette in themselves are not addictive? If they would have been addictive. All would have been addict. Therefore new research says. They are reflection of some thing underlying, unsaid,unresolved,unanswered problem or personality. Like angry personality or type 1 personality. Or stress pron personality or negative thinker which can be analysed with psychological test and can be treated permanently with new therapies like RTMS therapy. For de addiction, Naltrexone medicine, Antidepressnat medication, Psycho therapy ketamine therapy for underlying depression or stress if any or hypnotherapy etc so the changes in blood pressure will be easily controlled permanently, if you want.

Hi Sir, My manual blood pressure machine gives me consistent readings in bother arms. 120/70 ish. However when I take it manually my left arm gives me 120/79 and my right arm 140/90 ish. Why am I getting higher readings with my manual blood pressure cuff in my right arm only?

Generally, a small difference in blood pressure readings between arms isn't a health concern. However, a difference of more than 10 millimeters of mercury (mm hg) for either your systolic pressure (top number) or diastolic pressure (bottom number) may be a sign of an underlying problem — such as narrowing of the main arteries to that arm. A large difference in blood pressure measurement between your arms could signal a health problem, such as: blocked arteries in your arms (peripheral artery disease) kidney disease diabetes heart defects get youself examined by a physician.
