Mostly it is musculoskeletal pain, sometimes it is due to swelling in rib joints. She can try some pain killers for 3-4 days and local application of gels with painkiller ingredients.

Dear lybrate-user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

You have written high heart rate but you have not written how high it goes. Most common cause of high heart rate are anxiety and thyroid disorders. If it is due to anxiety then anxiolytic medicines may help. For thyroid you need to check Thyroid function blood test. It is better to see doctor personally for finding out the cause of tachycardia.

First of all lose weight. If cardiac and gastro doctors have evaluated your problem and found no pathological condition, please get to a healthy lifestyle. If no family history of heart problems, then eat nutritious food, more salads and fruits along with other medium diet. Regular exercise is important and get atleast 7 hrs of sleep daily. If bp medicine has been advised take it and get back to your physician.

How to control high blood pressure effectively?
What is the perfect veg breakfast?
Blood pressure arises from the resistance in your blood vessels to the natural flow of blood within them. So if you an maintain a diet that is healthy in fresh foods rich in vitamins, cow ghee, anti oxidants and alkaline foods, you can safeguard your overall health as well as BP. Ideally, breakfast should be or 2 large portions of fresh fruit of your choice and home made nashta with lots of dahi. Have a healthy Diwali. Best wishes.

Chest Pain - Reasons and Treatment

MBBS
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Chest Pain - Reasons and Treatment

If you thought that chest pain occurred only due to a heart-related issue like a heart attack, you are wrong. Chest pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit the emergency services and it can be caused due to problems with your heart, lungs and digestive system. 

Chest pain can be due to either of these two main reasons:

Heart- related Issues

1. Heart attacks called myocardial infarctions are very common reasons for chest pains. During a heart attack, the blood supply that serves the heart with oxygen is cut off due to plaque build-up in heart arteries causing the death of heart muscles. 

  • Other reasons for heart attacks are blood clots or torn blood vessels. 
  • Not all people having a heart attack have symptoms. Usually, people report symptoms like chest pain, upper body pain, nausea, sweating, fatigue, and trouble breathing.
  • A heart attack is a serious medical emergency for which immediate care is needed.

2. Angina pectoris is a type of chest pain that results from reduced blood flow to the heart. Low blood flow means your heart doesn’t get enough oxygen. The angina pain is often triggered by physical activity or emotional stress and feels like a vice squeezing your chest or a heavy weight on your chest. It can also spread from your chest to your neck, arms, and shoulders. Other symptoms are fatigue, dizziness and nausea and these normally last up to 15 minutes only.

3. Unstable angina which causes crushing chest pains suddenly and even when you are not doing anything strenuous is a medical emergency as it can lead to a heart attack. This usually shows that your heart, arteries are narrowing alarmingly.

4. Other heat-related reasons for chest pains are-

  • Mitral valve narrowing or stenosis
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Coronary Artery disease
  • Inflammation of heart muscles or pericardium and weakening of the heart muscles. 

All of these are emergencies and need immediate medical attention to prevent a fatality.

Not Heart- related:

1. Lung conditions like Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Pulmonary embolism

  • Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs caused by fungi, bacteria, or viruses. It causes inflammation in your lung’s air sacs and makes them full of pus which makes it difficult to breathe and causes chest pains, amongst other debilitating symptoms.
  • Bronchitis is an inflammation of your bronchial tubes. It can be chronic or acute and it can cause a cough with mucus and chest pains. 
  • Pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that occurs in the lungs. It can go on to damage parts of your lung due to limited blood flow. Apart from this, it can also decrease oxygen levels in the blood and affect other organs. 

It can be life-threatening due to permanent lung damage. The most common symptom of a pulmonary embolism is gradual or sudden shortness of breath

There is also- 

  • bluish skin tone 
  • anxiety
  • fainting
  • hest pain that extends into your arm, jaw, neck, and shoulder
  • lightheadedness

2. Rib cage inflammation or Costochondritis is also known as Tietze’s syndrome. It is an inflammation of the cartilage in the rib cage. Patients experience chest pain in the upper and middle rib area on either side of the body due to this. The pain can also radiate to the back or the abdomen, getting worse if you move, stretch, or breathe deeply.

3. Food pipe disease or Esophagitis is any inflammation or irritation of the oesophagus, a tube that sends food from your throat down to your stomach.

Common causes of food pipe disease are acid reflux or GERD and bacterial or viral infections. 

GERD- This condition occurs when the stomach contents and acids back up into the oesophagus. This causes chest pain that can mimic a heart disease. There may also be oesophagal spasms due to GERD. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.
