Hi. I am telling this to everybody who are taking bp pills at a younger age! raises bp at a younger age calls for a thorough investigation to look for cause of bp. Then bp medicines are to be selected according to the reports. The possibility of false bp problem or temporary rise in blood pressure due to anxiety, apprehension or fear etc has to be ruled out. Better consult a cardiologist in your town and let him decide things for you. Take care.

you are having smokers coughing syndrome by way of bronchitis and pharyngitis. which can be allergic also. so best thing to try and leave smoking otherwise it will worsen your bronchial problems. and as it is smoking is a precursor of malignancy do warm saline gargle regularly. Three times daily. if possible. have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin C thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection. have lot of water go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. It will improve.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user most commonly, neck pain is causes by bad posture and lack of exercise. Especially if you're a computer proffessional or use mobile phone a lot. You should meet a physiotherapist and learn about proper posture and some exercises. If pain persists you should see a spine specialist.

Blood pressure is a fluctuating problem. It can change from time to time and with age. Multiple factors have a role in this. Some can be modified, others can just be managed through medications. Factors that can be modified are exercise levels and food we eat. Exercise daily for 40-45 mins, avoid caffeine, smoking and salt rich food like chips, pickles, papad, chutneys etc if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions BP is still high, you will need to take medications too, and these medications can be required for lifetime and doses may vary from time to time, so you should remain in follow up of a cardiologist.
