Eat healthy. That means eat salads and no fried or refined foods. Eat 200 gms of salad with every meal. Go for some exercise like walking Yoga or aerobics. This will be better than taking medicines for your problem.

Yes you can have good fats and cow ghee is one of the good fats, do take only a spoon per day, other good fats are nuts including cashew nuts which uplift the mood too, these cashew nuts are anti depressents also! take only few per day, but never fry any nuts or sprinkle salt on them for taste.

You need to understand about high blood pressure.  Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels 4) your lifestyle - smoking, drinking, exercise  You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. DASH lowers high blood pressure and improves levels of cholesterol. This reduces your risk of getting heart disease. The DASH Diet Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Includes whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oils. Limits sodium, sweets, sugary beverages, and red meats. Along with DASH, other lifestyle changes can help lower your blood pressure. They include staying at a healthy weight, exercising, and not smoking. My advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler  Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records for a better individualized advice.

While walking I feel short of breath. After taking some rest it becomes ok. Is it a symptom of a blocked artery?

Breathing difficulty may involve: Difficult breathing Uncomfortable breathing Feeling like you are not getting enough air There is no standard definition for difficulty breathing. Some people feel breathless with only mild exercise (for example, climbing stairs), even though they don't have a medical condition. Others may have advanced lung disease, but may never feel short of breath. Wheezing is one form of breathing difficulty in which you make a high-pitched sound when you breathe out. Shortness of breath has many different causes. For example, heart disease can cause breathlessness if your heart is unable to pump enough blood to supply oxygen to your body. If your brain, muscles, or other body organs do not get enough oxygen, a sense of breathlessness may occur. Breathing difficulty may also be due to problems with the lungs, airways, or other health problems. Problems with the lungs: Blood clot in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary embolism) Swelling and mucus buildup in the smallest air passages in the lungs (bronchiolitis) Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), such as chronic bronchitis or emphysema Pneumonia High blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary hypertension) Other lung disease Problems with the airways leading to the lungs: Blockage of the air passages in your nose, mouth, or throat Choking on something stuck in the airways Swelling around the vocal cords (croup) Inflammation of the tissue (epiglottis) that covers the windpipe (epiglottitis) Problems with the heart: Chest pain due to poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart (angina) Heart attack Heart defects from birth (congenital heart disease) Heart failure Heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) Other causes: Allergies (such as to mold, dander, or pollen) High altitudes where there is less oxygen in the air Compression of the chest wall Dust in the environment Emotional distress, such as anxiety Hiatal hernia (condition in which part of the stomach extends through an opening of the diaphragm into the chest)  Obesity Panic attacks So what can you do about it: Sometimes, mild breathing difficulty may be normal and is not a cause for concern. A very stuffy nose is one example. Strenuous exercise, especially when you do not exercise often, is another example. If breathing difficulty is new or is getting worse, it may be due to a serious problem. Though many causes are not dangerous and are easily treated, call your health care provider for any breathing difficulty. If you are being treated for a long-term problem with your lungs or heart, follow your provider's directions to help with that problem. When to Contact a Medical Professional or Go to the emergency room: Breathing difficulty comes on suddenly or seriously interferes with your breathing Someone completely stops breathing See your provider if any of the following occur with breathing difficulties: Chest discomfort, pain, or pressure. These are symptoms of angina. Fever Shortness of breath after only slight activity or while at rest Shortness of breath that wakes you up at night or requires you to sleep propped up to breathe Tightness in the throat or a barking, croupy cough You have breathed in or choked on an object (foreign object aspiration or ingestion) Wheezing In general or patient with breathing difficulty should undergo the following tests. ECG Echocardiography Chest X Ray Blood tests like CBC kft thyroid profile Pulmonary function test Get back to me with old records & reports for a detailed discussion or individualized advice.

Hello sir, I require a medication for my anxiety. Whenever I am very furious or sad or I cry a lot then I suffer from low blood pressure and problem in breathing. Once I even fainted and was not moving for some time. This could be due to the intense pressure I take in several situations. Please provide me a prescription for my issue that can control my BP and prevent my anxiety.
