Hi, Heaviness in upper abdomen after food could be simple gastritis or it could be more serious post prandial Angina. I'll advice you to start Tab Pan D twice daily before breakfast & dinner for gastritis and do a test called Stress Echo to rule out Angina pain. You can follow up after the stress echo report. Thanks.

How To Recognise a STROKE, Before it's Too Late!

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
How To Recognise a STROKE, Before it's Too Late!

Strokes occur when blood to the brain gets interrupted or reduced. When this occurs, brain cells begin to die as they don't get enough nutrients and oxygen. Such life-threatening episodes can strike you anytime.

There are certain signs that can help you to clearly recognise an occurrence of stroke:

  • Face drooping on one side
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body, usually a leg or an arm
  • You're unable to think or say anything clearly
  • You experience slurred speech
  • Difficulty in moving your tongue
  • You get a sudden and severe headache

What Tests can be Done to Identify the Stroke?

There are certain tests that you can do to identify these warning signs.

  • To identify facial weakness, the smile test is used wherein you're simply asked to show your teeth to check for any changes in this facial expression - a lopsided smile.
  • To check for weakness in the body, the arm test is performed in which you raise both your arms to the same height. In case you're unable to do so, you may be experiencing arm weakness, a sign of stroke.
  • For slurring of speech, you may be asked to repeat sentences such as 'Don't cry over spilt milk' or 'The pen is mightier than the sword'.
  • Stroke can also be identified through the walk test wherein with the help of another person, you walk across the room to check for changes in your step.

If not treated in time, strokes can cause permanent brain damage. More importantly, unlike heart attacks, anxiety may not always be the cause of your stroke symptoms. That's why, being aware of these symptoms and recognising them on time can help you to quickly seek medical assistance.

Pros are plenty from cleansening the system, reducing bad fats in blood & sugar resulting in weight loss if person does not eat more during rest of the day. Cons are -some people prone to get asthma attacks get a trigger attack after taking lemon juice, which may erode the teeth enamel too. Ideally chew something like an apple or a datun immediately after drinking lemon juice, so that it stays in contact with teeth for minimum time. Some people do say that it erodes the bones but there is no proof. One has to weigh benefits vs. Loss. Regarding bones, teeth and total health.

You can get a Renal Doppler, kidney function test, lipid profile and get evaluated for some secondary causes of hypertension. If they are normal. Do not bother yourself about why it has happened just continue medicine and keep BP in check.

Dear Lalit.....You should stop smoking immediately. You are just 18 years old....Quitting smoking only may not be sufficient for you.....Take 1 single bulb garlic every morning for at least 1 month....It will help to minimise the bad effects of smoking

I have an old case of heart attack. I was then a chain smoker. Am now on glycomet gp3/850, prlomet r 25, clopilet 75, istavel 100, rozavel f 10 since 3 years. Sir, do I need these drugs for so long. I have stopped smoking since2004. I think am loosing weight, and at tines I get a jerk in my nerves. Can you give your opinion ?

MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Bangalore
Hi thanks for posting your query. Well yes you need to continue all these medications lifelong. But there are combination medications like ecospirin gold ( can be used as replacement for clopilet+rozavel f ). Prolomet is an blood pressure medicine which can be reduced only if your blood pressure is under good control. Jerk in nerves indicate neuropathy-- means nerve damage. It is a complication of diabetes. I would recommend you to get nerve conduction study of your legs and revert back.
