Hi lybrate-user. Avoid prolong standing walk as much as possible you can use stocking during walking but remove during sleep.

I have swollen veins on my both hands, I am not sure if they are varicose veins as they are normal in color i.e.- skin color, I don't feel any kind of pain Their is no such problem. But the huge veins can be seen very easily on my entire arm like an old mans hand. please help .i am seriously depressed. I really need help plz.

No need to worry It seems that your subcutaneous fat is very less so veins are visible Generally varicose veins occurs at veins of dependent areas like limbs etc Please Build your body by regular exercises and and healthy diet Don't get depressed

Acute Coronary Syndrome - How To Manage It?

Acute Coronary Syndrome - How To Manage It?

The word acute coronary syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that are caused by blockage of the blood flow to the heart muscles.  The most common result of this is myocardial infarction or heart attack as it is popularly called. Reduced blood flow leads to death of some portion of the heart muscle wall. While the word heart attack sounds almost fatal, it need not be the case. Knowing how to identify an attack and being aware of some simple measures can help save lives. 

Symptoms:  The tell-tale signs of a heart attack are as follows:
- Chest pain and discomfort usually described as a tightness or burning in the chest region
- Pain along the left side of the shoulder and neck, going up into the jaw, down to the arm
- Nausea and vomiting 
- Profuse sweating 
- Difficulty breathing 
- Dizzy or fuzzy feeling 
- Tired, extreme fatigue
- Anxious, apprehensive feeling 

However, be also aware that there are a lot of people who experience a silent heart attack. Women, obese, elderly, and diabetic patients can have silent attacks, and depending on severity, either they go on with life as usual or can have a fatal attack.

Diagnosis: Once you are doubtful of a heart attack, the next step is to reach the closest medical facility for a diagnosis.  In addition to a detailed examination and history, the following two tests will be performed.

- Electrocardiogram (ECG): A 12-lead ECG will measure electrical activity of the heart and identify irregular electrical activity which is indicative of a myocardial infarction.

- Blood tests:  Presence of certain enzymes in the blood, CK-MB and troponin, are indicative of a heart attack.  A complete electrolyte profile also will be done, and increase or decrease of some electrolytes is helpful in diagnosing a heart attack.

- In addition to these two, chest radiography, cardiac angiography, echocardiogram, stress test, and computed coronary tomography may also be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Management:  Once diagnosed, the first step would be to relieve the symptoms, negate the effects of reduced blood flow, and restore cardiac function. 

- Dissolve the clot - Using thrombolytics like clopedigrol 

- Nitroglycerin - To dilate the blood vessels and improve blood flow, especially to the heart muscles

- Anticoagulant therapy - Blood thinners are usually used to avoid blood clot formation; aspirin and heparin are the most commonly used agents.

- Blood pressure maintaining drugs like beta blockers and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are also used

- Statins are used to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood and stabilize plaque deposits.
In very severe cases, angioplasty and stenting or coronary bypass surgery may be required.

Educating people on how to identify a heart attack and manage it is very useful and can help save lives.

Sir, I underwent laser ablation for varicose veins in my right leg, one year back (exactly). I found swelling in the leg and skin when pressed with thumb it is being pressed. While awaking from bed I feel nerve pain. My doubt is surgery success or not? If surgery is ok why I am getting problems even after one year? Please advice.

Hello, The veins are accompanied by lymphatics and nerves sometimes there may be inflammation and blocking of lymphatics in varicose veins which leads to swelling. You need proper assessment consult your doctor.
