Your problem is breathlessness, concentrate your mind in your study, avoid search about your disease in Google for yourself​, it is not your duty. Most probably you are under in Panic. You should be done regularly yoga, breathing exercises.In this procedure if you can't overcome your problem then consult with a neuropsychiatrist.

Hello doctor, I had developed very high bp around march. At times it shot to 170/120. Hypertension is in my heredity. I was given telma am 40 which caused swelling. Doctor later changed it to telma ct 40. Bp was still high, so dosage was increased to 80. In July, I suddenly started having sudden dizziness and darkness in front of my eyes. When I monitored my bp, it was around 80/58 or even lower at times. Doctor immediately stopped bp medicine and asked to monitor bp. My bp has been in range since then. Dizziness and darkness improved after stopping medicine. Bp is around 70/105 usually. I have thyroid and take levothyroxine 100. After stopping medication I feel my legs are always swollen and my body hurts a lot. I usually wake up with bad body pain, as if the blood is not circulating in body. I have also put on 1 or two kgs which feels like water weight. Could this be a side effect of stopping the bp medicine? Thank you in advance.

Hi YES it can be a side effect on your kidney See usually Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. Low blood pressure can lead to dizziness and syncope Your case need a regular BP charting. I read your query, by the information I have in hand my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least 2 week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has beelybrate-userone I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler  Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records for a better individualized advice.

With age our power to digest food gets slower. If she does not like meat, may be she finds it too heavy. Give her light food and proteins like milk, curds and boiled eggs. Regarding heart problems, clear the doubts by getting few tests done like ecg, echo, stress test if she can tolerate, bp checked and blood to be tested for sugar and total lipids, cbc for allergy, infection and hb. Breathing problems can be due to heart or due to lungs. Get back here with reports for more guidance.

High Blood Pressure and Sexual Problems

MD - Physician
Sexologist, Coimbatore
High Blood Pressure and Sexual Problems

It is said that, one in every three people are suffering from high blood pressure. It is estimated that at present more alone about 65 million people in US itself are suffering from this ailment. High blood pressure is a serious ailment that can cause heart attack, kidney failure, vision impairment, and it can even cause sexual problems. This ailment has no symptoms, and it is also regarded as one of the silent killers.  In fact, erectile dysfunction, which is one of the serious ailments caused by high blood pressure can even affect the relationship between the couples. 

High blood pressure and erectile dysfunction:

In the case of men, there is a direct link between sexual problem or erectile dysfunction and high blood pressure. Erection of the penis is caused by the two tissues called as corpora cavernosa. This tissue is made of small arteries and veins. During the process of erection, brain sends a signal to the nerve ending in the penis to dilate the arteries. This in turn makes the arteries to open sufficiently, and blood gets filled in empty spaces in the Penis. The relationship between high blood pressure and erectile dysfunction can be further analyzed as follows:

  1. Sexual arousal is caused by a male hormone called as Testosterone. In case a person is suffering from high blood pressure, he has low testosterone levels. Apart from this, in the course of time, those suffering from high blood pressure are prone to damage of lining on the arteries. This in turn affects the flow of blood in the arteries. 
  2. On the other hand, in the case of a person suffering from high blood pressure, arteries fail to dilate and the smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa also fail to relax. Naturally, this affects the flow of blood to the Penis which in turn causes erectile dysfunction. Because of the combination of these two factors people suffering from high blood pressure suffer from the problem of Erectile Dysfunction. 

Causes:

Fear: It is natural that sexual problems can increase the anxiety levels, which in turn may lead to fear. As a result, the person may refrain from indulging in sexual activities. In fact, even one instance of erectile dysfunction is enough to fuel the fear, and the person would avoid indulgence. 

Remedies available:

There are medicines that can help the individual to manage this problem of erectile dysfunction due to high blood pressure. Apart from the medicine, the physician may also suggest exercises and certain restrictions on food. You should take the medicines strictly as per the physician's directions. With this, it should be possible to effectively manage the sexual problems in those suffering from high blood pressure.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Dear sir my chest pain every time in both side some this pain in shoulders and neck what is problem.
Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to muscular or other soft tissue or bony problem - do hot fomentation of the affected area twice a day - take a pain relief tablet if pain is more after meals, maximum 2-3 per day - avoid straining, bending, exercises till pain reduces - sleep on a firm mattress & pillow which supports the neck & shoulders well during sleep.
