Dear lybrateuser, if you get anxious & tense your heartbeat will increase, so do some exercises like walking, light jogging, yoga, meditation, deep breathing which build your confidence & relax your mind. Have a balanced & nutritious diet & proper sleep for atleast 7-8 hrs daily.

Silent Heart Attack: Signs, Symptoms, and Prevention

DM - Cardiology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Silent Heart Attack: Signs, Symptoms, and Prevention

A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it. This condition is known as a ‘silent heart attack’, medically known as ‘silent ischemia’, occurring due to the shortage of oxygen supply to the heart muscle.

The causes of a silent heart attack are similar to that of a heart attack. They include-

  1. Obesity or excess weight

  2. Lack of exercise

  3. Disorders such as diabetes

  4. High blood pressure

  5. High cholesterol

  6. Age, usually above 65

  7. Heart diseases

  8. Consumption of tobacco or smoking

A silent cardiac arrest makes one more vulnerable to another heart attack that could be fatal.

Diagnosis:

The only method to diagnose if you had a silent heart attack is through imaging tests, such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram or others. These tests can show certain changes which might be indicative of a heart attack.

An analysis of one’s overall health and the symptoms can aid in deciding whether few more tests are required.

How would you prevent a silent heart attack?

  1. Get your cholesterol and blood pressure count tested regularly.

  2. Refrain from smoking.

  3. Be aware of your body and call on a doctor if you feel there’s anything which is bothering you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Homoeopathic treatment aconite napellus 200 (dr. Reckeweg) drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water twice daily alpha t. S drops (wilmar schwab india) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily aconite napellus 200 ----during acute anxious state of mind start take aconite 200 1-2 drop direct on tongue every 5-10 minutes until symptoms subsides. Ravil the above medicines will help you 100% but I want that you adopt naturopathy in your life style nd for that I will recommend you to do bhramari pranayam daily morning as this pranayam is a very good tress burster nd relieve you from anxiety related problems. 1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing 2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each little finger near a nostril 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your little fingers to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat three times.

Arrythmias are of different types. Today medicines exist that can cure some arrythmias. Some arrythmias can be cured by microsurgeries called radio frequency ablation. It depends what arrythmia you have and what is the cause.

I am a 19 years old girl. I've been going through major mood swings and I just feel empty in my heart sometimes. Even though I'm surrounded by so many people I still feel lonely. I am really close to one of my friends and I have realised that only when he's around in the morning I wake up with this positive energy. But even if everything going right I always feel somethings not right. I have suddenly lost interest in talking to my relatives or family. I am a photography student and I have kind off lost my interest and dedication in it too. I just can't figure out whats wrong. I have no answers to my questions. I feel low most of the time. When someone asks me whats wrong I get irritated even more cz I myself can't answer that question. Sometimes I feel I should consult a psychologist. I feel worthless and directionless. I feel like I won't be able to find work once I pass out of college. There are just too many things going on in my mind and I end up over thinking. I don't want to take any sort of anti depressants or something. I'm just worried about when things would get back to normal. I get lost in my own world and sometimes feel like going on rides or going out alone. No one lets me be. I don't know what to do.

Dear lybrate-user, you are having depression now. Normally depression increase to a particular severity level and then improve on its own in around 9 to 12 months. So if you do not take treatment it will take 9 month for improvement. With treatment you will find improvement in your symptom in 3 weeks. I would seriously recommend you to consult psychiatrist and start treatment. You can start brisk walking or exercise daily, drink approx 4L of water daily. Maintain your sleep and wakeup time. You will get some improvement with these measures. All d best.

Dear Mr Vinod....as human gets older the walls of blood vessels becomes less elastic and it becomes hardened..as a result it exerts more pressure on the blood flowing through the vessels.....another cause of increasing blood pressure may be atherosclerosis....atherosclerosis is caused by high cholesterol level in blood......Since your age is 56 years i would like to advise to walk for 1 hour daily.....you can try Homeopathic Mother Tincture RAWOULFIA SERP Q, 30 drops in water, thrice daily after meals......You should also check the lipid profile of your blood
