My mother (58 years) is suffering with thyroid and hypertension problems from last seven years. Recently 15 days back she was fainted and became unconscious for 10 minutes. She has the following symptoms 1 Sudden Palpitations in heart upto 170 beats per minute 2 Feeling weak 3 Tremors in hands 4 headache 5 High blood pressure 170/100 6 Breathlessness Previously she was treated by Senior General physician in Manipal Hospital from last seven years. Since her problems are recurring in a short time I have consulted a endocrinologist and admitted her in his hospital to find the root cause since there was no endocrinologist in Manipal Vijayawada. She is under his diagnosis from last four days in the hospital and sir expressed the causes may be Artilary Infillatraion or pheochromocytoma. He forwarded the 24 hours urine collection for analysis. Now the problem is she is suffering with high BP and high heart beat once in the morning everyday for an hour which she could not able to tolerate and when she takes tablets the BP and heartbeat raises further and more she is suffering. after that she becomes normal for remaining time in the day. She took medical 25 (metoprolol) for two days and today she takes Tellzy AM 40 mg (Telmisartan & Amlodipine) but there is difference and she suffered a lot for one hour. The doctor sir is saying that he will start the treatment after the examination only till that time he asked to continue the old treatment which is 1 Early morning Thyroxine 50 mg 1 tablet. 2 After breakfast Tellzy AM 40 mg 3 After Lunch Remetor CV 10 (Atorvastatin 10 mg and Clopidogrel 75 mg) What can I do now since we are not able to see her while suffering a lot for an hour a day regularly? My mother could use stalopam 10 mg tablets?

The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood to the entire body through a network of arteries and veins. This network contains big vessels which branch out further to supply blood to the distant organs. There is, therefore, some pressure that the heart and thereby the vessels need to exert to push the blood through these vessels. This is known as blood pressure, and normal pressure levels range from 90-140(systolic)/60-90(diastolic) mm of Hg. However, due to various reasons, this pressure could be more, which is one of the first signs of heart disease.
Causes of increased blood pressure:
- Thickening of the blood vessels. With age, the elastic blood vessels naturally turn rigid and less elastic, so there is more pressure required to push blood. It is natural for people over 55 years of age to have higher readings of blood pressure. This is known as primary hypertension (HTN).
- Narrowed blood vessels. This happens due to cholesterol accumulation along the walls of the blood vessels. Faulty dietary habits along with sedentary lifestyle have increased the incidence of hypertension due to this condition, known as atherosclerosis. Critical atherosclerotic narrowing of renal arteries lead to renovascular HTN that is one of the commonest of secondary HTN.
Other Causes of secondary hypertension are:
- Kidney problems
- Thyroid hormone disorders
- Congenital heart defects
- Chronic alcohol abuse
- Adrenal gland tumours
- Chronic use of medications like birth control pills, pain killers, etc.
Unidentified and uncontrolled hypertension can be silent and can lead to more severe conditions like heart attack and stroke. India is fast becoming the new hypertension capital of the world. Some of the common risk factors are:
- Family history
- Being obese or overweight
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Alcohol consumption
- Excessive salt intake
- Stress levels
- Ethnic background
- Hypertension can go undetected for years together, but if there are risk factors like diabetes and high cholesterol, it is advisable to periodically monitor blood pressure.
- Headaches, nosebleeds, and shortness of breath should not be ignored. These can be the first warning signs of hypertension, and if detected early, preventive measures can be taken.
- If there are co-morbid risk factors, it is advisable to constantly keep a check on BP readings.
This includes a combination of diet and lifestyle modifications.
- Quit smoking and alcohol: Of the many wonders quitting smoking can do, reducing BP readings is just one. The improvement would be almost instantaneous. Quit or else reduce alcohol and see dramatic improvements.
- Weight management: Through a combination of diet and exercise, ensure that weight is brought under control. Set a target BMI (Below 26 kg/m2) and work towards it religiously.
- Diet: Reduce salt, increase potassium, increase vitamin D, eat a heart-healthy diet, and see the hypertension readings improve. Please find attached and reviewed copy for health tip for posting. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.
