Hi it is most likely because of overdose of medicine overdose of anti diabetic medicines causes hypoglycemia. Sensation of an abnormal heartbeat, increased heart rate and sleeplessness are symptoms of hypoglycemia. Doses of anti hypertensive medicines are adjusted according to your fasting and pp blood sugar levels of patient So a review of your fasting and pp blood sugars are essential before decreasing the doses.

General Physician,
Why increases the heart rate & is there any permanent treatment ?
Heart rate increases during excercise or sometimes because of anxiety if your heart rate is persistently above 80 at rest, it needs investigation, thyroid profile and cardiology consultation.

I'm 22 years old. I've been smoking for 6 months. When I started smoking, I used to smoke 10 cigarettes in a day. 1 month ago I started smoking 2 cigarettes a day. 2 weeks ago I was having liquor on a friend's birthday (I drink occasionally) after that we had vaang with malai kulfi. First 1 hour I was ok but then when I got back home, I started feeling suffocated and also started vomiting, feeling weak, legs started shaking, chest pain etc. I took pankreoflat after that and PAN40 and everything came back to normal. Next day I was alright and had home made breakfast, lunch, dinner and didn't smoke. 2 days later I had pizza and I felt uneasy. It felt like something stuck inside my chest. I was shocked but it got stopped after few hours of rest. From then on I started taking home made food and take green tea twice in a day and drink lots of water. But sometimes I feel like the food is not going down , it gets stuck somewhere in chest. I also feel chest pain in the morning. Is this digestion problem or lungs problem and what should I do now?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You neither have digestive disorder nor lung disorder. Buf the problem is reflex related to acidity. You are doing well. Make sure to consume only homely food without much spices and oil. Exercise regularly. Include ginger and garlic in your daily diet. You will be alright in a week. Take care.

Dear lybrateuser, -the burning sensation in your chest is due to acidity -avoid fried, spicy & junk food, aiso reduce consumption of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, avoid alcohol & tobacco if you consume the same -do not skip breakfast & other meals, have 5-6 small meals including snacks in between main meals, chew your food properly, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 8-10 glasses of water a day to wash away the toxins & for proper digestion -do regular exercise for 20-30 min a day, also do yoga for 10-15 min as it is good for digestion -take syrup digene gel, 2 teaspoonful 20 min before every meal -also reduce stress & sleep well for 7-8 hrs in the night this reduces acidity -reduce your vit d intake after consulting your doctor as it will improve your appetite.

It means, your antidepressants haven't been properly tailored for your as a person. Discuss these issues with your psychiatrist, and get the antidepressant dose or type revised to suit you, and for best functionality. Antidepressants vary on sedation quality, and different individuals also respond differently to them. But you need 7-9 hours, average 8 hours refreshing sleeper day. So discuss and get the prescription revised. All the best,

Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.
Heart palpitations are a feeling that your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering. You may notice heart palpitations in your chest, throat, or neck. Heart palpitations can be bothersome or frightening. They usually aren't serious or harmful, though, and often go away on their own. Most of the time, they're related to stress and anxiety or to consumption of stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. Palpitations also often occur during pregnancy. In rare cases, palpitations can be a sign of a more serious heart condition. Therefore, if you have heart palpitations, make arrangements to see your doctor. And seek immediate medical attention if along with palpitations, you experience shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or fainting. A thorough physical examination and Medical History of your problem is required to rule out for any underlying cause. If an underlying cause is found, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate palpitations. If your palpitations are not related to an underlying cause, lifestyle changes, including stress management and the avoidance of common triggers, can help prevent them. Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you . ACONITE NAP 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 5-10 minutes during increased heart beat .Take it till your heart beat is normal.
