Hi I am a computer professional. My problem is worried nature and related issues. I can't control my tension. I am always worried and tensed for no reason. I have always lot of free time in office. My work pressure is very less and having very less work at office. So simply sitting everyday without much fun. So no activity for long hours. It makes me worried. I am married and have a baby. My blood pressure varies always like 80_120, 88_134, 75-110. Heart beat is more I think. 75, 88, 90 like it goes. My parents have a worried nature. Till my 30 th age I was ok. But due to bad food habit I became more vulnerable. I had stock issues. Every time I feel going to the toilet after food. Also stomach is filled with gas due to tensed nature. I have recreation activies in a good manner. So I get sweat very well all evening. When I have to attend calls or interviews I get nervous and that does not go down easily. I have homely food for the past 3 years. Sometimes I eat at hotel. Can you please suggest me what is my problem? I want control my bp if it is bp. Please reply.

Get him checked at NHI(EOK) in Delhi, they have reserved beds for EWS ,but do carry the certificate. Treatment of patient is not compromised because of status. Reasonable charges for disposables only , Excellent care by surgeons and team , If they advice bypass surgery , go for it without fear instead of multiple stents which will not be beneficial in the long run.

Dear , skip the medicine for sometime, and keep a record of bp for a week. If bp remains normal, no need to take medicines. If bp increases, then consult a cardiologist.

Good to know that ecg report is normal, and you get relief with basic medicines for acidity. There's something wrong with your food and eating habits, take less oily and spices and more of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items are available in your market. Eat regularly, milk and bananas or with curds is natural anti acidity food which is nourishing food also. Do take medicines if required. Eat regularly, do exercise to digest the food and drink lots of water preferably with honey at least once a day. Do get back with progress report.

Have a focussed mind. This happens with personality of a wandering mind & a racing heart. Computers, reading and writing on any subject, end of the day, jot down your activities of the day on paper every day in the evening. Get a degree which will give you a vocation or a productive job. Be a freelancer for sometime & I feel teaching kids of class 5 onwards can be rewarding provided mothers are equally focussed.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Dear lybrate-user, You need to take a break from these supplements and switch to high nutritional value natural foods. Some treatment/medication to bring cholesterol may be needed (count not known) before you rely on natural foods to keep that under check. Stress (of food and work equally) can cause oxidative free radical increase that causes fatigue. This can be treated once counts are known. Regards.

What Are Blockages in Heart Arteries

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist
Ask Free Question
Blockage in heart is a common term used for narrowing of coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are vessels, which supply blood and thus oxygen and food to continuously working heart muscles. Heart muscles, which are not tired working from the birth till death, however, cannot sustain long without blood supply.

A reduction in blood supply gives rise to ischemia of heart muscles commonly manifested as chest discomfort or angina. A sudden complete shutdown of blood supply leads to heart attack leading to permanent damage to heart (if blood flow not reestablished promptly).

But what causes these arteries to block? deposition of ldl cholesterol (low density cholesterol) in inner surface of coronary arteries is the primary reason of these blockages. Ldl a normal component of blood (upto certain limit) starts depositing in arteries as early as 10 years of age!

Deposition of billions of ldl molecules over several years on inner surface of arteries gives rise to visible narrowings in these arteries. Flow ahead of these narrowings is reduced in proportion to the narrowing. At a level of 70 % narrowing the flow is reduced to give ischemia (and angina) during exercise. Gradually increasing degree of narrowing reduces the exercise needed for ischemia and angina; a narrowing of more than 90 % can give symptoms at rest. A sudden clot formation at any of these stages can block the flow suddenly giving a heart attack.

If ldl is a normal component of blood, why it is deposited in the arteries at first place?
Ldl above a certain limit in blood starts depositing in the arteries. Diabetes, hypertension, smoking, less exercise and genetics makes it more sticky thus making narrowing faster. This is why these risk elements need to be properly attended for prevention from heart disease. For treatment medicines are important for stopping the progression of narrowings; angioplasty is a method of fast resolution of blockage; and bypass surgery is the method of creating a whole new blood supply for the affected part of the heart.
