Near the Diaphragm middle of blew the chest I feel pain during sneezing, whopping and fast breathing sometimes.
Most likely this is pain from rib junctions with the sternum bone in the midline, and may be due to some heavy exertion in last few days or some pressure on the area of chest. It should disappear spontaneously in a day or two. Otherwise a clinical examination may be of help to fibd the exact position.

Mr., if he has diabetes (high blood sugar) and high bp, then proper treatment with appropriate drugs should be taken. In addition he should take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on his ideal body weight (70 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. He should exercise for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. That helps better sugar control and also in reducing bp. He should consume less salt in the diet and avoid papad, pickles and extra salt while taking food. To control sugar level he should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, farsan, high fat milk products and sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you are looking for specific drugs to be taken then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, lipid profile, bp readings, amount of walking done daily and dietary pattern. Looking at those details I will be able to give specific guidance, thanks for the question.

High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

My fathers is 79 years old and suffering from hypertension from last 23 years but now managed well with medication. Recently in last 15 days his blood sugar level is increased. There is only elevation in fasting blood sugar level (around 124mg) checked thrice and no elevation in postprandial blood sugar level (around 145 mg) also checked thrice. Then we done Hb1 Ac test and the result of same is well under control diabetes. He is not having any medication for the diabetes uptill now. So what can I do? Shall I go to Ayurvedic doctor or allopathic doctor? Also suggest any other possible way to overcome this.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar levels are mentioned, then there is no need for starting any treatment for diabetes, because it is called as pre-diabetes. (fasting above 108 to 125 mg and pp 141 to 199 mg / 100 ml) or also known as impaired glucose tolerance (igt). There is no treatment recommended in this situation. But a strict diet control and regular exercise is a must. Also avoiding alcohol and smoking will help in delaying diabetes. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks for the question.

First begin with diet change and exercise. Reduce sugar, fried, fatty food and ghee from diet, change your eating pattern. Take a detailed diet consult. For exercise start gradually with brisk walking, yoga or jogging and target to increase it to 40 mins daily. Quit smoking. Reduce alcohol. Reapeat lipid profile after 6 weeks of starting this, if cholesterol is still deranged, consult for medications. Also given your age, get a Stress TMT done to have a baseline cardiac status.

The best way is to visit nearest hospital and get yourself checked by ent surgeon for any vestibular problem and a cardiologist for any htn etc. There is possibility of cds also to be excluded by orthopaedician. If you go any vaidya, you may be treated for vatavyadhi. All these symptoms are covered under vatavyadhi.

You need to gradually decrease the no. Of cigarettes and frequency. You may go for homoeopathic patent gotox available in homoeopathic stores. Take 10-15 drops in 1/4th cup of water twice daily.

Since you have a shooting pain down the arm it is unstable angina. You need to consult a cardiologist and proceed on to bypass surgery. Medications will not help for a long time. Do not be afraid of surgery.

Hello, For your problem exercise is the best solution. Ask him to start doing physical activity like walking. Start with 10 min and can continue it to an hour. This helps with his fatigue and low B.P. Regarding diet, make sure he is taking 7 -8 servings of fruits and vegetable. Give him only brown rice or millets for main meals. Snack on fruits and nuts. Avoid non veg, and wheat . This should help him. Stay healthy stay fit☺
