Yes, your bp is quite high. Which can result in these symptoms. Try to first control your blood pressure by taking a salt restricted diet and eating healthy and doing exercise daily. Also check your cholesterol levels. If it doesn't improve then consider medical management.

My blood pressure is 170/110. I am taking medicine and it's almost 1 month I am in control I can see improvements like it has been reduced to 165/94 I have checked it 2 days without taking the medicine. Is it possible to completely eradicate at least like 150/90? Is it possible to cure blood pressure fully since I am at very early age of 26 I don't want to depend on medicine. Kindly suggest me some diet or more to achieve my target with least use of medicine. Or based on my physical data if someone can suggest something.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You have to stop smoking as it has started affecting your organs in the body, cessation of smoking can reverse the harmful changes over a period of time as it is a gradual process - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables - have 7-8 glasses of water per day to wash down the toxins accumulated in the body because of smoking - do regular exercise like jogging, swimming, brisk walking for 20-30 min, also do yoga & deep breathing to keep your body & mind fit - do an x-ray chest to rule out any other problem, consult a doctor.

Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap.

Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

रक्त, आर्टरीस की दीवारों पर जो बल डालता है, उससे ब्लड प्रेशर कहते हैं। इस बल की शम्मता, दिल के रक्त छोड़ने के प्रेशर और रक्त वाहिकाओं द्वारा लगाए गए प्रतिरोध पे निर्भर करती है। उच्च रक्तचाप, जिसे हाइपरटेंशन भी कहते हैं, तब होता है जब यह बल बहुत अधिक हो जाता है। 
रक्तचाप रीडिंग दो नंबरों में दिया जाता है। पहला, सिस्टल रक्तचाप, जो हृदय अनुबंध के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। दूसरा डायस्टोलिक रक्तचाप, जो दिल के वापस विस्तार के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। वयस्कों के लिए सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 एमएमएचजी के नीचे और डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 एमएमएचजी के नीचे, सामान्य रक्तचाप होता है। जब आप उत्साहित होते हैं या घबराते हैं, तो रक्त के दबाव में परिवर्तन सामान्य होता है। हालांकि, गतिविधि बंद हो जाने पर, आपका ब्लड प्रेशर आपकी सामान्य बेसलाइन रेंज में वापस आ जाता है। 
रक्तचाप सामान्य रूप से उम्र और शरीर के आकार के साथ बढ़ जाता है। संकीर्ण धमनियां प्रतिरोध को बढ़ाती हैं, जो रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण बनता है। जब सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 - 139 के बीच हो या डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 - 89 के बीच हो, तो उस स्थिति को प्रीहाइपरटेंशन। 140/90 एमएमएचजी या उससे ऊपर का रक्तचाप उच्च माना जाता है, यानी के, यदि आपके सिस्टोलिक दबाव 140 से अधिक या डायस्टॉलिक दबाव 90 से ऊपर है। 
 

उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण
1. उम्र:

उम्र के साथ उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ जाता है। जैसे जैसे हम उम्र में बढ़ते है, हमारा रक्तचाप स्वाभाविक रूप से बढ़ जाता है। वास्तव में, 50 से 60 वर्ष से अधिक आयु के लोगों को हृदय रोगों का अधिक खतरा होता है। 
2. जेनेटिक:
कुछ लोग जेनेटिकली उच्च रक्तचाप के लिए अधिक संवेदनशील होते हैं। यह जीन म्यूटेशन या जेनेटिक असामान्यताओं से हो सकता है।
3. व्यायाम की कमी और पुअर डाइट:
उच्च रक्तचाप अक्सर एक लंबे समय तक गतिहीन जीवन शैली के कारण होता है। व्यायाम की कमी, अतिरिक्त आहार के लवण का सेवन मोटापे का कारण बनता है और उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ा देता है। सोडियम संवेदनशीलता के अलावा, उच्च रक्तचाप और हृदय की स्थितियां भी, चीनी और वसा से भरी हुई आहार से जुड़ी हुई है।
4. शराब, ड्रग्स और धूम्रपान:
अत्यधिक मात्रा में शराब पीना या मनोरंजक दवाओं जैसे कोकीन, मेथ आदि का उपयोग करना धमनियों पर तनाव डाल सकता है और हृदय को नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। धूम्रपान संकीर्ण धमनियों का कारण बनता है, जिसके कारण दिल को अधिक काम करना पड़ता है। यह भी दिल के दौरे और हृदय रोगों के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकता है।
5. हार्मोनल स्थितियां:
एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक हार्मोन विकार जो पोटेशियम और सोडियम स्तरों के बीच असंतुलन पैदा करता है, उच्च रक्तचाप का एक सामान्य कारण है। मेनोपॉज के लिए हार्मोन थेरेपी भी रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण हो सकती है। 
6. स्लीप एप्निया:
स्लीप एपनिया एक ऐसा विकार है जो नींद के दौरान सांस को रोकने या बहुत उथले बनने का कारण बनता है। इससे ऑक्सीजन का स्तर कम हो सकता है और कार्डियोवास्कुलर सिस्टम पर तनाव बढ़ सकता है।
7. गुर्दे की बीमारियां:
उच्च रक्तचाप का सबसे आम कारणों मे से एक गुर्दे की बीमारी है। गुर्दे सामान्य रूप से, सोडियम और पानी को बनाए रख कर और पोटेशियम निकल कर, शरीर के नमक संतुलन को विनियमित करते हैं। इसमें असंतुलन खून की मात्रा बढ़ा सकता है, जिससे उच्च रक्तचाप पैदा हो सकता है।

Donot think in that way. Heart related problem arise after certain age. If you have any doubt please go for detailed check up like echo ecg and blood tests. If reports are normal then be fearless. But follow a diet that has less fat and junk food.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Heart Problems - How Ayurveda Can Help You Prevent it?

Heart Problems - How Ayurveda Can Help You Prevent it?

The modern age is full of tensions and stress, expecting peaceful mind and unhealthy lifestyle is just impossible. To prevent common diseases and living a healthy life requires keen knowledge of the main organ of the body, that is the Heart. The heart is a muscular organ which works like an engine and provides fuel to run human body by pumping blood. Our heart has two chambers which separates the oxygen rich blood from oxygen poor blood and each time you breathe the valves of heart opens and closes. There are many cardiovascular diseases that are caused due to the blood vessel and heart issues like lack of flexibility, blockage, fatty plaques of the arteries or lack of strength of the parties.

The modern medical systems suggest surgical treatment for the cure of the heart problems but on another hand, Ayurveda targets the deep root cause of the disease. The best cure for heart diseases is to adopt a holistic approach named Ayurveda the part of the great Indian heritage. This is not only based upon the ancient principle but many researchers worked and proofed that heart issues are reversible with the help of Ayurvedic treatment.

As Ayurveda believes in the natural ingredients for treatment, many remedies are available in our surrounding. Here are some commonly recommended remedies to prevent and cure heart diseases by Ayurveda.

  1. Triphala: To reduce the blood fat level and high cholesterol Triphala- the mixture of three herbs named Amalaki, Bibhitaki, and Haritaki. This handles the causative issues of blood fat and cholesterol and keeps the heart healthy.
  2. Ashwagandha: This is a wonder herb to reduce tension from mind and body and provide strength to the heart muscles.
  3. Chaywanprash: this is the mixture of various herbs like sugar, honey, ghee, Indian Gooseberry (amla), jam, sesame oil, berries, herbs and various spices. Chaywanprash is an herbal jam which strengthens the heart muscles and boosts up the immune system as well.

These three are the most common and easily available remedies for heart problems. Other than these three garlic, ginger, turmeric, saffron, arjuna, guggul, etc. herbs which are good for heart diseases and provides a complete cure. I would suggest consulting an expert Ayurvedic physician for the better results and proper guidance instant of trying self treatment.

Dear Lybrate User, *Any kind of physical trauma—surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu—can cause temporary hair loss. *Pregnancy is one example of the type of physical stress that can cause hair loss (that and hormones). *Overdoing vitamin A-containing supplements or medications can trigger hair loss. *If you don't get enough protein in your diet, your body may ration protein by shutting down hair growth. *caused by a combo of genes and male sex hormones, usually follows a classic pattern in which the hair recedes at the temples, leaving an M-shaped hairline. *Heredity :“If you come from a family where women started to have hair loss at a certain age, then you might be more prone to it, *Emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can happen, for instance, in the case of divorce, after the death of a loved one, or while caring for an aging parent. More often, though, emotional stress won't actually precipitate the hair loss. It will exacerbate a problem that's already there. *Almost one in 10 women aged 20 through 49 suffers from anemia due to an iron deficiency (the most common type of anemia), which is an easily fixable cause of hair loss.

Once you are proven to have Coronary Artery Disease and have undergone stenting then you need these medications lifelong. You are only on a small dose of statin and I would suggest you continue that. You are on two blood thinners currently which could be cut down to a single agent. Please get a review from Cardiologist.

If you have chest pain please consult a cardiologist immediately and also please reduce your tension .normal bp for your age is 121/80 and also it can reach a maximum of 133/84. This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.
