Hi there. Chest pain on drinking water or on eating food warrants thorough examination by a gastoenterologist to rule out any problem in esophagus and stomach or 1st part of small intestine like ulcers. Cardiac problem seems less likely at this age and with these symptoms. Avoid eating oily and spicy foods. See your physician or a gastrologist. Take care.

My age is 53 and weight is 86 my cholesterol is 250. What I will do please give me suggestions
Hello dear patient. 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. Change life style . Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Avoiding salt, losing weight, eating vegetables and stress relief are quick ways to lower your blood pressure.

Quitting smoking, decreasing alcohol intake, and reducing caffeine consumption are good long-term strategies to lower your blood pressure as well.

Focusing on balanced nutrition and eating foods that are low in cholesterol and saturated fat. These include fruits and veggies, whole grains, and low or no-fat dairy products.

In addition to exercise, other forms of relaxation like meditation or deep breathing are also helpful. Making the right lifestyle choices also helps control blood pressure.

As your baby gets bigger, the uterus pushes on the stomach making heartburn more common in later pregnancy. Do not keep stomach empty in morning eat in 30 minutes maximum after getting up and have fruits Eat several small meals instead of three large meals -- eat slowly. Drink fluids between meals -- not with meals. Don't eat greasy and fried foods. And spicy foods Do not eat or drink within a few hours of bedtime.in night have light food and mis vegetable soup at 7 pm after that avoid heavy food Do not lie down right after meals.

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is the pressure of the blood in the arteries. It occurs when the pressure of the blood is abnormally low. Blood pressure is typically recorded as the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (time between two beats). A consistent blood pressure reading of 90/60 mm hg or lower is considered low blood pressure. People with low bp may experience symptoms of dizziness or syncope (fainting) as the blood flow to the brain and other vital organs becomes insufficient. Regular walking morning and any querries inform me.

How a person understand that his heart working properly,
Any schedule check up to catch any heart difficulty.
If one does not have symtoms of heart disease like chest pain or breathlessness on exertion palpitations any loss of conciousness or syncope one can takr it that he might not have any heart problem. But oatients with high blood pressure or diabetes can still have heart problem without much symptoms. An ECG is the first screening test that should be done. 2D Echo can be done if required on advise.

Precautions for high blood pressures, diet required. And other proactive measures, thank you.
To control & maintain BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day. You can consult me privately for more medicine treatment and doubts.

D& c does involve a little trauma to lining of uterus but it removes the scum present in inner layer of uterus also. Some bleeding followed by spotting & later some discharge is common but every doctor does give a course of antibiotics after d & c. D& c is both therapeutic and investigative as pieces are sent for path tests and reason for bleeding are evident -infection or secretory hormonal phase which is good for woman. Therapeutic- many women conceive after d& c, may be internal infections get cured. Have a heart, your doctor is doing right for you.
