Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Tumor is accumulation of cells. Tumors may affect the functioning of your body, especially when the size is increasing. Please consult a doctor at the earliest. For any disease, early treatment is half battle won. If your tumours are dangerous, the doctor will treat them, if they are not really dangerous, the doctor will suggest still some medication but most importantly you will be relieved of the stress once the diagnosis is done.

You are being medicated for your nervous symptoms. These medicines are surely to have side effect of drowsiness, sleeepy feeling like you are feeling now. If you are able to learn different methods to relax your body and mind with proper yogasana, proper diet, meditation, you will not need any of these medicines. All your medical reports are within normal limits. If you remain medicine dependent, in future your health is likely to suffer. Try to learn at a reputed Yoga Pranayama center.

Hope he is taking anti tb treatment daily. There is no sputum production or blood in sputum (good, it is a close case, he cannot infect others) there is no chest pain. Only symptom is breathlessness & noisy breathing. Use honey with warm water. Torrex syrup is also helpful & does not interfere with other medicines for heart or for tb. Some people cannot tolerate- curd, oranges, lemons, acchhars, chutneys, sour foods like imli as it triggers cough. Avoid any of these if they cause cough. Every vegetable that does not cause distention is allowed as cough becomes worse due to heavy oily food, vegetables cooked by frying. Saute the vegetables & pressure cook to retain the taste. Every fruit is allowed. As he is a heart patient too, I am sure that his intake of fats is low. With anti tb medicines also being toxic to liver, it is advised to take low fat diet & avoid other toxic antibiotics given routinely for fever! give him a high protein diet like toned milk, protein supplements of his choice. Avoid medicines to lower cholesterol also as they can cause toxicity to liver.

Hi .My bp is always 90- 130, I take repace 50 since 2 yr, but my bp remain constant. Can I change the medicine.
Your BP is within normal range and it is probably due to the medicine repace. Since the medication is so effectively controlling your BP there is no sense in changing it unless you are experiencing any side effects. Instead of changing medications, it will be better if you add lifestyle changes as well in your life like - 1) daily exercise for 30-40 mins, 2) eating a healthy diet including fruits and fibres (for detailed diet plan please consult a dietician 3) salt control in diet by avoiding high salty food like pickles, chutneys, papads, namkleens, sauces etc 4) quitting smoking and alcohol 3) limiting caffeine intake to 1-2 cups in a day 4) reducing stress and anxiety.

I am 29 years old. I am suffering from improper breathing problems. I tend to hold breath unconsciously. I also experience poor posture and anxiety stress. My body is imbalanced especially while driving. This problem exists from childhood and I ignored it fr long time. My bone xray were normal as said by ortho. Any advice.

This anxiety stress that you mention is related to fear. If you deal with the fear, even your body skewing will get rectified with some help with physical exercises. Since this has been there from childhood, talk to your parents to identify what fearful situation you may have experienced inadvertently. Armed with that information do meet up with a counselor and take care of that for gradual relief.

Dear lybrate-user, if there is ongoing chest pain after heart attack, patient must be admitted in ccu and should be prepared for early angiography and revascularization in the form of angioplasty or surgery. It is of utmost importance to prevent further heart attack, which can be fatal and also to salvage some of the heart muscle.

What is the meaning of the lipid tests? is that really useful for me? my age is 24.
Lipid indicates us how is our heart healthy or not. Lipid profile or lipid panel is a panel of blood tests that serves as an initial broad medical screening tool for abnormalities in lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides.

I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 3 days and I still get sudden panic attacks where I feel chill feeling on my hands and feeling of irregular heart beat this last for about 15 minutes and subsides. The doctor has now added ZAPIZ 0.5 to be taken in evening. With this I am not feeling the panic/anxiety symptoms. What is wrong with me should I see a Neurologist or Psychiatrist? Is this sudden feeling of panic/anxiety attack due to cilamet xl?

Dear Friend Not every person with abnormal TMT test required Coronary angiography. You could do stress echo or stress thallium to confirm coronary artery disease (CAD). It again indicate that in future you r not right candidate for TMT as it was false positive & will remain false positive foreever. You said that you had bp problem since 35. It should be evaluated. High bp in young may be bcz of thyroid problem or some kidney problem or kidney tumour which are curable type of hypertension you may have anxiety panick attack thatswhy you have some relief after giving antianxiety medication. To be summerize YOU NEED TO EVALUATE CAUSE OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AT THIS YOUNG AGE.

My blood pressure is very high 122/180. What remedial measures I should take. I am 32yrs.
Dear lybrate-user, your blood pressure is very high and needs to be addressed immediately. I hope you are consulting a physician. First thing to be done is to identify the reason as high blood pressure is a symptom of an underlying disease. Get your cholestrol, kidney profile, liver profile and diabetes scanning done along with an ecg. And revert general guidelines would include stress reducing methodology like yoga, pranayam, low salt diet and ofcourse treating the cause. Do not delay please consult a physician immediately.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is high blood pressure in the arteries to your lungs. It is a serious condition. If you have it, the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow. Your heart has to work harder to pump the blood through. Over time, your heart weakens and cannot do its job and you can develop heart failure. Symptoms of PH include Shortness of breath during routine activity, such as climbing two flights of stairs Tiredness Chest pain A racing heartbeat Pain on the upper right side of the abdomen Decreased appetite As PH worsens, you may find it hard to do any physical activities. There are two main kinds of PH. One runs in families or appears for no known reason. The other kind is related to another condition, usually heart or lung disease. Treatments can control symptoms. They involve treating the underlying heart or lung disease, medicines, oxygen, Get a echocardiography done to check your pulmonary pressures.
