Sir since last two days I am feeling problem in my chest, its hurting when I take deep breath.

MD - Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Panchkula
It is most likely a muscular problem. A simple pain killer will help. If the pain persists an x-ray chest should be done.

Hello. She has to take her bpmedicines regularly. If it is high at the time of check up, give one more tablet. Avoid exertion. Less salt in diet. If bp still remains high, to consult a physician. Sometimes there is need of hospitalisation to lower bp with injectable medicines and to avoid further complications associated with it.

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
High bp is multifactorial. Majority cases cause is unknown or may be familial. However if one has diabetes, obesity, kidney disease, thyroid disease etc chance of having high bp will be high. Most of the cases its due to genetic susceptibility plus poor habits like diet, lack of exercise, smoking etc combined together to cause high bp.

I am 62 years old. I have BP and taking medicine telecast H ,Homo 16, ecosprin 75 and metafast H.For diabetic no medication try to control with food intake. After eating meal fill much heaviness in stomach upper part. Is this due to increase in intestine size. Kindly advice me.

Cardiologist, Delhi
Hi, Heaviness in upper abdomen after food could be simple gastritis or it could be more serious post prandial Angina. I'll advice you to start Tab Pan D twice daily before breakfast & dinner for gastritis and do a test called Stress Echo to rule out Angina pain. You can follow up after the stress echo report. Thanks.

Your blood sugar level is high so avoid sweets as more as possible. Take pranacharya diabeto capsule and shilajeet capsule twice a day. Instead of these tablets in my opinion you should go for ayurvedic medicines for sgot & sgpt.

Is it really alarming? Please suggest me Doctor. I do not have other symptoms like vomiting, headache, weakness, fever etc.

Hi. Bp is the problem that generally does not cause any symptoms of the patient. This is what makes the disease so bad kind of disease. Because patient does not feel any problem from the disease. Most of the times bp is detected when the patient goes to a doctor for some other reasons, doctors check bp and detect you having high blood pressure. You need to check your blood pressure regularly for like about one week or one months time. If every time your blood pressure is more than one 140/90 then it is proven fact that taking a blood pressure medicine will give you good results in long time. God has made the heart in such a way that when it pumps, it creates pressure of one 120/80. So when you have high blood pressure you want your heart to work harder so that it produces more pressure. So each and every beat your heart pumps, it is working more than what it is supposed to work. So just imagine 80 times in a minute then what in an hour what in 24 hours what in weeks and what in years. So this extra burden on the heart causes problem in long time. This is why we advise to take bp medicines so that we can reduce the load on your heart so that it lasts longer. Take care.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user Do take care of your diet and restrict fat intake. Start regular walking and weight reduction. A cholesterol lowering medications can wait until a repeat check after 2 months considering rest of the reports are normal. Do not bother about Hs CRP. It is a test that can be elevated due to various other reasons other than risk to the heart. It is considered a predictor for heart disease if associated other risk factors are also present, but never in isolation.

You maybe suffering from pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.
