Shortness in Breath - Can Your Heart Be In Danger?

Shortness in Breath - Can Your Heart Be In Danger?

There are different types of heart problems like coronary artery disease, congenital heart failure and cardiomyopathy, but their warning signs are the same i.e. shortness of breath. This is the reason why shortness of breath should never be taken lightly and should always be investigated for heart diseases.

Why does shortness of breath happen?
You may not be able to get in enough air while experiencing shortness of breath. Known medically as dyspnea, shortness of breath is often described as an intense tightening in the chest and a feeling of suffocation. This is one of the most frightening conditions experienced by a patient. You can experience dyspnea without any serious medical problems in these conditions

  1. After strenuous exercise
  2. In extreme temperatures
  3. Due to obesity and
  4. In high altitudes

But if you are not in any of these conditions, then shortness of breath is a sign of a serious medical problem usually involving your heart or lungs. These two vital organs transport oxygen to the rest of your body and remove carbon dioxide; hence problems with either of these organs can affect your breathing. Shortness of breath that comes on suddenly called acute, can be due to other causes too like:

  1. Asthma
  2. Excess fluid around the heart
  3. Low BP
  4. Heart failure
  5. Blood clot in an artery in the lung
  6. Collapsed lung
  7. Pneumonia

If you have had shortness of breath that has lasted for weeks, then we call it chronic and its causes can be various diseases of the heart apart from asthma and COPD. There is no doubt that your heart may be in trouble, if you have chronic shortness of breath. You may be suffering from these heart conditions:

  1. Cardiomyopathy or problems with the heart muscle cause symptoms like shortness of breath after physical exertion as well as fatigue, and swelling of legs and abdomen. Patients suffering from cardiomyopathy are at risk of sudden death due to cardiac arrest.
  2. Heart arrhythmias is also called irregular heartbeat, and can cause slow or fast heartbeats. These also have symptoms like shortness of breath. Arrhythmias can cause strokes, heart failure and cardiac arrest.
  3. Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently to meet the needs of the body. This is a potentially fatal condition. One of the most common symptom is shortness of breath with exercise and while lying down. Fatigue is another common symptom.
  4. Pericarditis or swelling of membranes around the heart is also characterised by shortness of breath.

Treatment of breathlessness can start after you are referred to a heart specialist for further tests to confirm the likely cause.

Çhest pain in young age is commonly due to costochondritis (inflammation of rib and sternal junction). This condition will respond to complete over the counter available analgesics like Ibuprofen. Since details of your symptoms are not given, it's difficult to diagnose. You should get ECG and Chest X Ray done along with blood pressure check to rule out heart attack and lung infection. Consult again for further queries.

Hi, I am suffering from Premature Ejaculation. Can I take Confido (himalaya) to cure this.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, PG Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Hi, I am suffering from Premature Ejaculation. Can I take Confido (himalaya) to cure this.
Firstly, Premature ejaculation is not a problem, it is a condition. There is a wide range of "home-made" remedies for premature ejaculation like frequent sex, masturbating a couple of hours before sex, or having sex with the woman on top. Try a Thicker condom, it's thicker wall can decrease the sensitivity of the penis. Behavioural strategies: "start-stop" and "squeeze techniques" often prove effective, but do not provide a long-term solution. It can take a few months for you to overcome PE with these techniques and many men have to keep using them on a permanent basis. On average, 50% to 95% of men using sexual techniques manage to overcome PE eventually. There is a risk of relapse if there are significant changes in your sexual life (e.g. New partner, stressful event), especially if you feel anxious. In general, the sooner in life, you learn to master these techniques the better. Men who are oversensitive, rather than being excessively anxious, might not benefit from these behavioral methods because they suffer from a different cause of premature ejaculation. What Is The "Start-Stop" Technique? This is by far the most simple technique and can be done alone or with a partner. The technique involves stimulating the penis and stopping just before you feel you are about to ejaculate. Stop the stimulation for 30-60 seconds and start again once you feel that you have regained control. Repeat this process 4-5 times, stopping and resting every time you feel that you are about to have an orgasm. Finally, let the ejaculation occur so that you can identify the point of no-return. Many couples and partners complain, however, about the inconvenience of this game and find it frustrating. Try to incorporate it smoothly into sex and take advantage of the pauses to focus on sources of pleasure other than the penis. What Is The "Squeeze" Technique? The "squeeze" technique works by squeezing the penis in the area between the shaft and the glans (for about 30 seconds), just before you are about to ejaculate. This stops the ejaculation but may affect your erection, at least until you are stimulated again. You should then repeat this process 4-5 times until you decide not to delay orgasm anymore. To be effective, this method has to be used for several months and it requires great perseverance from the man and his partner. The idea behind the "squeeze" technique is that, after a while, you are able to recognize the point of no return and may be able to delay future ejaculations. This technique may be frustrating though as it can disrupt sexual activity. What Are The Other Options? The "start-stop" and "squeeze" technique prove more effective when combined with these techniques: - Think about something else: something distracting, boring or annoying - Take a deep breath before ejaculation: this can delay orgasm by slowing ejaculation and stimulation Do consult a medical doctor to discuss the issue.
