Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. It seems that your knees are under a lot of stress due to high weight but you can start doing exercises - Quadriceps & Hamstring strengthening exercises for your affected knee. Also start walking for about 2-3 km everyday ( Brisk walks) and get your vitamin D and calcium metabolism correct. Do not hesitate to contact me in case of further queries. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Symptoms Of Heart Attack

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), DNB Cardiology
Cardiologist, Pune
Symptoms Of Heart Attack


Heart disease, an old-age ailment, nowadays has emerged as a major lifestyle concern. Rate of heart diseases in india is twice that of western countries. 

Heart disease - one of number one cause of mortality, especially among young indians. Almost 50% of all heart attacks in indian men occur under 50 years of age and 25% occur under 40 years of age.
Despite being a growing concern, not many us are aware of the most common heart attack symptoms. Though a person's genetic disposition and family history remain as the most common and uncontrollable risk factors, majority of heart diseases may be caused due to modifiable factors like blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, stress and weight issues. Our high risk lifestyle emerges as the biggest risk factor.

In most cases, a heart attack occurs when a blood clot is formed in one of the blood vessels responsible for supplying blood to the heart, when the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle is disrupted due to certain blockages in the coronary arteries. 

Lack of knowledge often causes a delay in handling the situation, which could aggravate the damage and in some cases prove to be fatal. Early medical attention and treatment decrease morbidity and mortality. 

The early symptoms:

  •     The most common - sharp and constricting pain in the center of the chest, which may radiates to the left side of the body, particularly the left arm, back, chin and jaw discomfort.
  •     Profuse sweating – diaphoresis due to the over-activation of the sympathetic nervous system.
  •     In diabetic patients sweating, feeling light headed and momentary black outs are more common than feeling sharp pain.
  •     Breathlessness 
  •     Dizziness and losing consciousness. 
  •     Discomfort in the upper part of the abdomen and a burning sensation - can sometimes mistaken as acidity or heartburn.
  •     A strong feeling of nausea.
  •     Unexplained fatigue, paleness, palpitations and anxiety are other symptoms.
  •     In women presentation can be atypical. Other symptoms, like lightheadedness, nausea, extreme fatigue, fainting, dizziness, abdominal pain or pressure in the upperback.

Do's and don'ts – when a heart attack occurs?

What to do-

  •     Call for emergency medical help. 
  •     Make the person lie down flat on a firm surface and loosen clothing.
  •     Clear the airway and allow him to take a few deep breaths.
  •     The pulse should be checked not on the wrist but on any one side of the neck (carotid). Check for the regularity of the neck pulse.
  •     Try giving him oxygen if breathless.
  •     Turn the patient one side if feeling nauseating and let him vomit so as prevent aspiration into the lungs.
  •     Raise both the legs to improve the supply of blood to the heart.
  •     Isosorbide dinitrate is a vasodilator, widens blood vessels and makes it easier for blood to flow through them and reach the heart. It is available in the form of pills and should be taken sublingually.
  • If the person is unconscious, no pulse, perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (cpr. Call for help. If you don't know cpr, you can still help in rescuing by helping others. American heart association has given simplified way of cpr. Everyone should know cpr. 
  • Cpr stands for" cardiopulmonary resuscitation" it is a way to get blood and oxygen moving throughout the body of someone whose heart has stopped working.
  • Cpr can save a person's life. It can keep the brain and other organs from being damaged by lack of oxygen. It is something you do until the heart can be shocked back into action or until it becomes clear the person cannot be saved.

What not to do-

  •     Do not try to feed the patient anything and it is best to avoid oral medication.
  •     Thumping and pumping the chest without knowing the heart rhythm should be avoided.
  •     Famous self-administered treatment of coughing repeatedly is unlikely to help.
  •  It is important to note that most lifesaving medications that help in recovering from a heart attack, work best when given within one or two hours of experiencing the first symptoms, when the cardiac damage is limited. Therefore, in such situations time is most crucial. Recognizing the early symptoms and immediate medical attention can save many lives.

I am 32 years old man. Have bp. So please tell how can I Control that. Should I take medicine regularly.
Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Dear Sir, Some one refer use coconut oil for food and cooking does it helps to reduce weight. Its true or not. And it helps for sugar patient and high blood pressure patients.

Dear Sir,
Some one refer use coconut oil for food and cooking does it helps to reduce weight. Its true or not. And it...
Use of coconut oil is certainly good for fat loss in many people. But making such single change in your diet is not the effective way to tackling weight issue. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Pick one which you like and can do. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some lifestyle medicine expert who can help you in this over extended period of time.

Most people with bundle branch block are symptom-free and don't need treatment. Certain medications to lower BP if increased are prescribed. Depending on your symptoms and whether you have other heart problems pacemakers, Cardiac resynchronization are implanted. Its not necessary to implant pacemaker always if a patient is diagnosed with LBBB.
