My opinion would be to wait. Meanwhile, a salt restricted diet, avoidance of junk food, avoidance of smoking/tobacco, regular exercise and adequate sleep should be ensured. A regular monitoring of blood pressure is essential.

Hello. I am 24 male. From past one week onwards my bp is above 150/90. Before two days when I checked my bp it was 170/100. So at that time I taken tablet "atenol 50" also. Now past two days onwards I have a feeling that my left side neck area is full of pain and I also feels that my left side head (i.e left ear upside head) lightly swelled. Is that any symptom of brain hemorrhage or rupture of any nerve in the brain due to long time untreated of high bp. Now no medicines for bp are not taking by me. There are no other symptoms are noticed. Do I need CT SCAN or any other checkups?

This looks like stress as you are very young. Do not worry and drink lot of water to cleanse the body Stress To reduce the stress it is better to go for walking regularly for around 2-3 kms in a park. You can reduce the anger or becoming emotional. Try to become organized and become more structured to reduce the stress. You an take hot water bath to reduce the stress and you can go for oil masssage in any ayurvedic centre.

lybrate-user, these reports only give an indication to the size of the red blood cells. They do not indicate the confirmation of any disease. The most likely reason of your dry hands is dehydration. This is not directly linked to your high BP, but surely intensified by it. Please begin to drink plenty of water through out the day. Make sure you are not ating packaged, fried, oily, spicy foods that will cause dehydration also. Try to apply simple sesame oil (til ka tel) on your hands 2 to 3 times a day after washing them, to reduce the irritation of dryness. Consume lots of fresh fruit and fresh vegetables in your diet. When there is low vitamin, hands and body can tend to feel dry an uncomfortable. Wish you a happy Diwali.

Palpitations - Everything You Need to Know

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology, Cardiac Device Specialist (CCDS - Physician )
Cardiologist, Delhi
Palpitations - Everything You Need to Know

What is Palpitation?
Palpitation is a feeling of awareness of your own heart beat. It is usually described as heart rate being either too fast (racing), too slow or a sensation of missing a beat.

Types of palpitations?

Normal (Benign)

  1. These palpitations occur as a response to physical or mental stress like exercise, fever, pain, fear, anxiety etc. 
  2. They are harmless and settle on their own once the precipitating factors disappear. They do not require any medical treatment.

Abnormal

  1. These palpitations occur due to some underlying abnormality in either the structure of heart or the beating of heart. 
  2. These can be dangerous and at times life threatening. They may or may not settle on their own and require some medical treatment.

Warning signs that suggest palpitations are abnormal?
Palpitations are abnormal, if they are associated with chest heaviness, chest pain, uneasiness, sweating, weakness, giddiness, feeling of black out, fainting, nausea, vomiting, seizures. Palpitations are more likely to be abnormal in people who have some existing heart disease and these patients should report to their doctor at the earliest.

What to do during palpitations?

  1. Stay calm. 
  2. Call for help. If u are alone avoid driving, use a taxi or auto, go to your nearest hospital/doctor and try to get an ECG during the palpitations. If you are helping someone having palpitations, if they faint, call for help, start CPR if they remain unresponsive and take them to the nearest hospital. 

Which doctor can treat palpitations?
Doctors who specialise in the treatment of palpitations are called Electrophysiologists. They specialise in heart rhythm and are capable of performing a variety of complex tests to identify and treat different types of palpitations.

Which investigations are used to diagnose palpitations?

  • ECG: Taken during palpitations and when the patient is normal is a very helpful tool. 
  • Holter: Externally applied recorder, which continuously records heart rhythm for 24 hrs. 
  • ELR: Extended loop recorder, is like holter, but it records rhythm for longer durations. 
  • ILR:  Internal loop recorder is attached within the body for recording rhythm for long duration. 
  • EPS: Electrophysiology study, is the most sure shot test to diagnose, identify and treat Palpitations.

What is EPS?
EPS stands for Electrophysiology study. By this test a trained Electrophysiologist studies the conduction and formation system of heart beat, to understand the source, cause and type of palpitation. It is a simple and safe procedure of 2 to 3 hours and can be done as a day care procedure (by admitting the patient for a few hours in hospital, with discharge on same day).

It requires fasting for 4 hrs, some standard blood investigations and is done with local anaesthesia and if required it can be combined with treatment like ablation in the same sitting.In the procedure Electrophysiologist take catheters into your heart to study and stimulate the palpitations and understand them. Once found they can use various techniques to stop the palpitations, the techniques are called Ablation.

What are the treatment options available for palpitations?
There are many options depending upon the nature of palpitations and condition of the patient: 

  1. Drug therapy 
  2. Cardioversion where either a drug or electric shock is given to stop palpitations immediately. 

Ablations using many sophisticated computer softwares 
Device Therapy like ICD (Internal cardiac defibrillator) 
Combination of all the above therapies.

Your Electrophysiologist and you as a team can make a choice about the options that will be best for you.

We had our first child on 22nd june17 through cesarean delivery of my wife. Throughout the pregnancy period and even before that she never had High BP, not even in OT. But soon after the delivery, her BP shoot up to 180-200. She was kept in ICU for 3 days and Lobet was given. After about 5 days, we came home and the doctor advised to keep checking her BP. At home also her BP is fluctuating and inspite of taking Lobet 200, BP remains like 130/100 or 140/100. In her family, they have history of HIGH BP. Her parents had BP. Now doctor is suggesting that if the BP is not controlled in few days, he will have to suggest regular medicine of BP which she will have to take throughout her life. Her age is 29 Years. Please suggest.

It's called tachycardia which is increased in heart beat or pulse rate. The cause would be more commonly due to anxiety, fever, hyperthyroidism, or other major complicated things like stroke, heart attack, svt, and others so it needs an complete evaluation with ecg and complete blood profile, throid function test. Hope I answered your question. Don't hesitate to ask me for any quiries if uou have. Have a good day.

Hi, Is homeopathy better treatment for hypertension than allopathy? Is it lifelong?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology, Cardiac Device Specialist (CCDS - Physician )
Cardiologist, Delhi
Hi, Is homeopathy better treatment for hypertension than allopathy? Is it lifelong?
There have been no comparative study between homeopathy and allopathy with regard to which is better for hypertension so far. But yes, in allopathy BP has been well studied and it is a common knowledge that Hypertension is a condition which can vary from time to time, age and a lot of other factors. It requires life long management sometimes with just life style precautions and at others with both medicines and life style changes. Medicine and precautions may be needed to be taken for life in quite a few cases. It is important to keep BP in check because it can lead to different problems and so it is advisable to seek treatment. Best would be to consult a doctor preferably a cardiologist, discuss your concerns and apprehensions and then starting with lifestyle changes and treatment.
