Dear, psychiatric medications are not meant to get dependent on them. You may have got relief the first time in a month period and that is a good sign that your body had ability to recover fast. May be your anxiety was not complicated by factors which may be present now. This time if your anxiety is not getting controlled, its better either you visit another doctor or simply ask him to change medicines. If he doesn't do that, then its better you should try Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) this time. It is a form of psychotherapy and targets symptoms of anxiety very well. There are several techniques in this form of therapy and step by step, in a short period of time, you may easily regulate your symptoms. That means, CBT is a form of therapy which makes you the master of your symptoms, rather than medicines. Medicinal treatment assumes that all symptoms of anxiety (or any other disorder) are due to changes in brain chemistry but ignores several other psychological factors which can be dealt only with psychotherapy. Your psychiatrist has put you on medical treatment which is generally the first line treatment for any patient but good psychiatrists always ask to get psychotherapy too. Relapse of symptoms that has happened with you may be dealt better with CBT rather than medicines. This time you MUST consider taking CBT from a good psychotherapist. Psychotherapists are Clinical Psychologists who are trained to provide different forms of psychotherapy. As I can read here, you are able to realize that your palpitations are triggered by stress or other things. This awareness is sufficient to work on cognitive and behavioral aspects of your anxiety. If anxiety gets controlled by medicines, its good, but it is always recommended to take CBT.

Do not try to become a cardiologist & start advising people on blocks in the coronary arteries! the choice of treatment in these cases depends on the symptoms of the patient. Location of the blocks. Its % & many other factors. Best, leave it to a sincere cardiologist to decide.

For forever cure, you need to give still more details & can take phone consultation but reading your complaint right now, you can take medicine - sabadilla 30 5 piils for 2 times a day for 1 week. Still if you need more accurate & permanent cure, do a phone / text consultation in private consultation area.

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. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Dear lybrateuser, -There is no evidence to suggest that doing or lifting weight by left hand causes heart problems, the effect of doing any work from either side will have the same effect on the body.

You are suffering from worry and anxiety. Worry is a process of imagining the worst possible outcome or result or future in a particular situation and creating a living and active image of it in front of the eye of your mind, and then using the energy of that negative image to flow inside your consciousness so as to completely overpower or weaken your spiritual and as a result your physical self to evoke fear in the self. Your psychiatrist is correct and you have to follow his instructions. Tablets are required for longer duration.

Dear Prakash, With advancing age, the metabolism becomes slack, slow and older people react badly to foods and climate etc. Since you know heavy, spicy dinner is affecting him badly, make sure he had light, early dinners. Water from mouth and nose is a pre acid reflux, and acts up when the night temperature changes. take care Regards

Anxiety and stress are common causes of chest pain that mimics pain due to structural heart disease. You need to relax. Yoga and meditation can help. Anxiety if persistent needs psychiatrist's counselling.

Dear lybrateuser, - Since she has more than 90% block in the major blood vessels it has to be corrected by bypass surgery as advised by the cardiologists as it is a life saving measure - do not worry as in good hands it is a safe procedure & the blood supply would become proper & adequate for the heart function as well as the whole body after the surgery.
