Dear . Virtually everyone diagnosed with buerger's disease smokes cigarettes or uses other forms of tobacco, such as chewing tobacco. Quitting all forms of tobacco is the only way to stop buerger's disease. For those who don't quit, amputation of all or part of a limb may be necessary. R you one of them. If yes then choose one. Cigarettes or ds free life.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, The symptoms that you have mentioned can definitely occur as a result of anxiety or depression. Considering the fact that your Echo and ECG are normal, anxiety /depression seems to be the most likely cause. You should seek a psychiatric consultation to undergo complete evaluation. Accordingly treatment can be initiated in form of medications or psychotherapy. Start doing relaxation exercises in a regular basis like meditation or deep breathing. I do hope that you are able to overcome your symptoms soon. Best wishes.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Heart Palpitations May Get Their Start in Perimenopause While there are no hard statistics on how many menopausal women experience heart palpitations, Portman estimates that 25 to 40 percent of women going through menopause will develop them. They tend to be even more common in women going throughperimenopause, the four years or so preceding menopause. “That’s when hormones seem to fluctuate the most,” Portman says. However, it’s unclear whether the hormonal changes that come with menopause are directly related to the development of heart palpitations. Portman says studies have shown that epinephrine and norepinephrine, the neurotransmitters that regulate heart rate and blood pressure, tend to fluctuate in menopausal women. These neurotransmitters might one day be a target for specific treatment of heart palpitations associated with menopause.

take tab. ecosprin 150 sos when chest pain occurs. 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 .

Is Your Heart Missing a Beat Regularly - Could it be Arrhythmia?

MBBS, Master of Surgery - General Surgery, Magistrar Chirurgiae (Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)
Cardiologist, Faridabad
Is Your Heart Missing a Beat Regularly - Could it be Arrhythmia?

Arrhythmia is a disorder which is characterized by improper and irregular heartbeats; be it too slow or too fast. This problem occurs when the electrical impulses that are used to regulate your heartbeat don’t work in the correct manner. Your heart may beat irregularly, too slow or too fast.

Symptoms
Although this disorder does not yield many symptoms, a few noticeable symptoms of arrhythmia are slow heartbeat, or a racing heartbeat, chest pain, breathing difficulties and dizziness. Arrhythmia can lead to inefficient pumping by the heart, leading to bouts of fainting. A severe symptom of this disorder is ventricular fibrillation, wherein the ventricles tend to quiver instead of transporting blood. This symptom can cut off blood supply to the vital organs, which may lead to death.

Causes

  1. Coronary artery disease: In this disease, arteries of the heart can get blocked, leading to irregular heart beat and impaired heart functioning.
  2. A heart attack: An ongoing heart attack usually leads to irregular heartbeats.
  3. High blood pressure: High blood pressure problems make you more vulnerable to this condition.
  4. Impaired functioning of the thyroid glands: An overactive or underactive thyroid gland can lead to heart arrhythmia.
  5. Excessive smoking and alcohol consumption: These habits can cause problems with the blood vessels in the body, thus increasing risks of this particular condition as well as other cardio-vascular diseases.
  6. Stress: Too much stress can lead to high blood pressure; that is again linked to heart arrhythmia.

Treatment
Mild symptoms of arrhythmia do not require treatment. However, complications resulting from it warrant treatment. The various treatment options for this condition are:

  1. Pacemaker: A pacemaker is a device that is used to regulate your heart rhythms. It is placed in the body by a surgical procedure and an insulated wire is put, connecting the heart to the pacemaker. In case of an irregular heartbeat, the pacemaker sends out impulses to correct the improper heartbeat.
  2. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator: This device is used to prevent a dangerous symptom of heart arrhythmia, a symptom wherein the ventricle quivers. It is similar to a pacemaker as it is also placed near the collarbone. In case it detects an abnormal rhythm, it sends out shocks to reset the heart rhythm.
  3. Maze procedure: This is a surgical procedure wherein incisions are made on the upper heart tissue to create a scar tissue. Scar tissues act as insulators to prevent stray impulses.
  4. Alternative therapies: Alternative procedures such as yoga and meditation can help remedy the disorder.

Sir, I am a male, aged 85. Got mild heart attack about 30 yrs back. Other wise I am quite OK. Every day, I walk for about 30 mts. (about 3 kms equivalent) My body mass is OK. I am a vegetarian, no smoking and no alcohol etc.Other wise I am having a healthy life. I usually consult a good cardiologist about 2 times in an year. My regular medicines are : Morning after breakfast : Imdur 30, Repolal, Razel-10 After noon after lunch : Aspisol-75 Night after meals : Repace H I some times once on 2 to 3 months gets pain in the chest and the position of pain varies time to time. The pain lasts for 2 to 4 hours. More or less acute in the first hour and gradually diminish. The pain may come in the morning, evening or mid night and so on. The only medicine I take is Sorbitrate - 5mg under the tongue. Some 4 to 6 tablets I consume one after the other each time. I suspect this as mild heart attack. After I become normal, I usually get an ECG which is shown to the doctor. I often told the doctor about this and he chides that a cardiologist alone can diagnosis a heart attacks. My cardiologist works in a reputable hospital around 50 kms away from my place. Once, about 8 yrs back, I got a chest pain around 10 AM. I left my place by car and by the time I could meet the cardiologist it took about 4 to 5 hours. By that time there is no chest pain at all. Still, the doctor insisted me to get admitted in the hospital. There were routine check ups, ECG etc. As my chest pain often lasts 2 to 3 hours only and it completely subsides by the time I could meet the doctor, it appears redundant for the trip besides scaring my family and children. If the chest pain occurs during the night, it may take even 6 or more hours by the time I could meet the doctor. So, I almost made up my mind not to disturb my wife and son at the chest pains and manage with the Sorbitrate - 5mg tablets and preying god. Under these circumstances, is there a better alternative ? Please suggest.

Living With a Heart Patient - 5 Things You Must Know!

Living With a Heart Patient - 5 Things You Must Know!

The heart is a muscle that pumps blood to the body through a network of arteries and veins controlled by valves. A heart disease could mean a problem in any of these organs, heart per se, the blood vessels, or the valves. Like it or not, heart problem is a chronic condition. It starts without any notice, and for sure, it is not going to go away completely. What can be done, though, is to manage it beautifully and lives and enjoy life so that the heart disease is not stopping you.

When there is a person with the chronic condition, it is not just that person who is affected, but the near and dear ones as well. When heading out for a dinner or when planning a gathering, there would be certain things that need to be accounted for and considered to accommodate the needs of the affected person. These very soon become a way of life and can be done effortlessly.

The following are some things to bear in mind when living with a heart patient.

  1. Diet: Heart patients would have some dietary preferences based on the heart condition per se. This may include a need for more whole grains and vegetables, need for specific types of oils, specific cooking methods, etc. At home, it is essential to ensure these things are always stocked up. When heading out, whether it is to visit someone or out for a meal, take into account whether these would be available. The next best option should be kept in mind so that dietary intake is not affected. Gradually, with time, substitutes can be identified with which they could manage in most places.
  2. Medications: Make sure the medication kit is always readily available. Make sure the person does not miss any medications, whether at home or outside. Ensure the regular medicines are in stock and some common emergency ones are also readily available.
  3. Routine: Whether it is their morning walk or yoga or meditation, it is better to stick to the routine as much as possible. The person also should learn to adapt based on circumstances; however, to the maximum extent possible, these should be continued without major interruption.
  4. Monitoring: Be it blood pressure, sugar levels or weight, these need to be monitored regularly and any deviations should be brought to the notice of the doctor immediately.
  5. Other equipment: Whether it is a walker, inhaler, or a wheelchair, these should be functional and available. The home or the living place should not be cluttered to allow for the easy use of this equipment.

While these may initially require some effort, with time, it would just happen naturally. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.
