Dear lybrateuser, - Your pain could be due to muscular or other soft tissue problem - avoid lifting, bending, exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation twice a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - do physical therapy to get relief from pain - if pain is more have a pain relief tablet after meals.

I am 42 years old all body weakness no mind any work. have cholesterol and diabetes. Please help.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Yes you have been given the right injection. The dose of hcg should be 10, 000 iu. Did you travel when she was pregnant. Just give her proper rest, no sexual contact and no intercourse. After that within next 7-8 days her bleeding should stop.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user! Your body weight is too much for your bones to carry. Ideal body weight for you will be 60-65 kg. Too much weight is damaging your knees to cause osteoarthritis. As an endocrinologist I can help you losing this extrabody weight. For that I have to examine you and develop a treatment plan accordingly. It is good you do not have diabetes now, but obesity is a risk factor for diabetes and hypertension.

For acidity and gas problem you should follow this. For cerebral attack neurologist opinion is must. Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

U are asking How? Or why? Any how, in younger people who got bad habits like smoking, lrregularly eating, not chewing, spicy with garamm masala would give heavy chest feeling unless & until proved otherwise. Better if you change life style before getting investigated.
