High triglycerides and 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 .do meditation,yoga, 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,take plenty of water in day time.

How do I control my blood pressure which rises all of sudden when things goes wrong?
Hi. Blood pressure does not remain constant all the times. It changes as per your bodies requirement. So when you are anxious, angry of worried, your body shows response by increasing your heart rate and bp. This is an absolutely proper response. Bp problem is when your bp remains high even if you are calm and sitting resting. Take care.

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.

My pulse is 84 since one month. Temperature is normal. What is the possible reason. I feel body pain.
Thyroid function (tsh) and an ecg should be checked. Sometimes worry alone may be the cause. Pain sensations may be more in both of these conditions.

Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like 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.

Dear lybrate-user let me clear one doubt that as per ayurveda shali dhanya (rice in grain) is the best rather than other grain. Its never gain weight or cholesterol but term is its more than 2 years older and organic, non-polished. Because as per ayurveda any new grain is guru vipaki (means heavy to digest) and after long period rice get changes its property it becomes laugh vipaki (easy to digest) for your cholesterol trouble start regular early morning exercise & skip all junk foods.

My Mom suffered a minor Stroke two months back. After that she was treated and as per Doctors advice she is good and fine. Doctors said the main reason was of Hypertension. CT scan test was been done and various tests been done whatever Doctors decided to do. Now the problem is that she feels a kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness and a bit of pain in her left side till her knee portion. We discuss the matter with the Doctors and they said that it is a stroke effect and it will heal naturally by itself. I approach to Neurologist and discuss the matter and the Neurologist said the same thing as the Doctors said. As per Doctors advice she needs to take B. P medicine and Sugar medicine for life long. Now my question is that it's been a more than two months she had minor stroke but she still feels that kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness sometimes pain in her left part of her body. Is this true as per Doctors advice she will be fine and it will get healed naturally. Please advice your suggestions to what is next to be done.

Heaviness and nerve stretch in left thigh could be due to sciatica. Patient lie on her back and tell her to lift her right leg up to 90 degree. Then lift her left leg up to 90 degree. In sciatica she will get pain if she lift beyond 45 degree. While standing straight normal person can bend forward and touch her own toes with her fingers. In sciatica she may not be able to touch her toes. Hard bed (with cushion), hot fomentation of lower back may help. Patient lie on her abdomen. Flex (bend) legs to touch thigh may help. Get it confirmed by surgeon and take medication as per his advice.

Overweight problems are always related to high blood pressure and anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most distressing emotions because of the co related physiology is so severe - heart pounding, stomach churning, shaking, dizziness and variety of other symptoms give you further cause to worry. The physical symptoms of anxiety play a great part in this over estimation of threat perception, as they are seen themselves as significant indicators that something is seriously wrong. Participating in physical activity reduces these symptoms. Meditation and relaxation therapy are also useful. Mindfulness exercises help a lot in anxiety related issues.
