Low Blood Pressure: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

When a person suffers from chronic blood pressure syndrome it is not considered a serious matter. Medical trouble can arise when there is a sudden drop in the blood pressure levels. When this happens the brain is unable to receive adequate supply of blood. This can cause the person suffering from the low pressure attack to feel lightheaded or dizzy. This sudden drop occurs generally in people who have been sitting or lying in a particular position for long and then suddenly stand up. This sudden drop in blood pressure levels is known as orthostatic hypotension or sometimes as postural hypotension.

There is a third kind of low blood pressure or hypotension when someone stands for a long time which is called neurally mediated hypotension. If it causes someone to faint it is known as vasovagal syncope. When the cardiovascular system or nervous system fails to respond correctly to certain unexpected changes encountered by the body it is known as postural hypotension. This failure on the part of the cardiovascular or nervous system to adapt to the sudden changes is signalled by the body by transmitting certain messages to the heart which makes it beat more rapidly and also to the blood vessels making it narrower.

The condition of either low or high blood pressure is more prevalent in older people because the supply of blood flow to the brain and heart muscle is lowered with age. The symptoms of low blood pressure include feeling lightheaded or dizzy or unsteady, blurring of vision, body weakness, tiredness, nausea, clammy and pale skin and tendency to pass out. Pregnancy, dehydration, blood loss, heart disorders, septicaemia or any other serious infection, anaphylaxis or a significant insufficient of nutrients in your daily diet can be some of the reasons for the sudden drop on your blood pressure levels.

How is the treatment done?

Low blood pressure in itself is not a serious condition. Often it can be a symptom of another health problem. The underlying conditions differ from person to person. Therefore, it is necessary for the doctor to identify the real cause of your blood pressure problem. First, fix an appointment with your doctor; notify him/her about your medical history, your age, the symptoms you are currently experiencing, and the reasons for the occurrence of the blood pressure drop. The doctor will conduct a thorough physical examination of the concerned patient. Then she or he will make the patient undergo a series of tests where the patient will be asked to stand up suddenly after lying down for some time. During this time, the doctor will take the pulse rate and will check the blood pressure levels.

If the doctor feels necessary then she or he may perform an ECG or an electrocardiogram in order to check the pulse rate and also an echocardiogram/ultrasound test in order to see the condition of the heart and take pictures of it for later reference. She or he might also take blood test samples from the patient in order to check for anemia or any issues with your blood sugar level.

In order to check for irregular heart rate the doctor may ask the patient to get an ECG or a Holter monitor done. An exercise test or stress test may also be advised. In certain cases, a ‘tilt table’ test is performed for a patient experiencing postural hypotension in order to assess the response of the body to unexpected changes in movements or position.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

A person who is experiencing shock or symptoms of low blood pressure like feeling lightheaded or dizzy on an off and on basis. Although chronic low blood pressure might not be a serious health issue in itself, it can be a symptom of a much severe underlying medical condition.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

All those people who are experiencing the symptoms of low blood pressure mentioned above do not need to go visit a doctor.

Are there any side effects?

The side effects of taking flodrocortisone include heart failure, muscle weakness, expansion of the heart, easy bruising, headaches, light-headedness and sudden increase in blood glucose levels.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

The doctor may advise you to increase the amount of salt in your diet because sodium increases pressure drastically. Also, increase the quantity of your fluid intake daily in order to prevent dehydration by drinking lots of water.

You may also be advised to wear stockings that put on compression on your legs by pooling the blood. This can help to reduce inflammation and pain. You may also be prescribed certain medications such as fludrocortisone and midodrine/orvaten help to treat the problem of hypotension or low blood pressure.

How long does it take to recover?

With proper rest, medication and water (for drinking, in case the low blood pressure occurred as a result of dehydration) you can recover within a few hours.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

In India one strip of 2.5 mg of Midodrine costs about 2,3000 Rupees, an ECG test costs about 250 Rupees in India, and an ultrasound test can cost you about Rs. 1000- 4000 in India.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The results of the treatment depends on well you adhere to the post-treatment guidelines. If you can look after your daily diet and also identity the reasons behind your sudden blood pressure levels you can prevent the sudden attacks from occurring on getting up after lying for some time.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Alternatives for low blood pressure problems include certain home remedies such as increasing the daily water consumption level and cutting down on alcohol which will help to tackle the dehydration levels, having a balance diet which incorporates nutritional items such as fruits, veggies, whole grains and protein such as chicken and fish. Other remedies include gently moving from one place to another instead of getting up suddenly or moving too fast. Avoid sitting with your legs crossed and try to consume small portion of really low-carb foods. Also, keep eating small portions of food throughout the day to prevent the blood pressure levels from dropping suddenly.

Shortness in Breath - Can Your Heart Be In Danger?

MBBS, Master of Surgery - General Surgery, Magistrar Chirurgiae (Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)
Cardiologist, Faridabad
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.

Blood Pressure Measurements: Special Cases

MD - Physiology, MBBS
General Physician, Lucknow
Blood Pressure Measurements: Special Cases

Special cases of measurements of blood pressure: 

Certain groups of people merit special consideration for the measurement of blood pressure because of age, body habitus or disturbances of blood pressure related to haemodynamic alterations in the cardiovascular system.

1. Children:

Measurement of blood pressure in children presents a number of difficulties. Variability of blood pressure is greater than in adults, and any one measurement is less likely to represent the true blood pressure. Systolic pressure is more accurate and reproducible than diastolic pressure. A cuff with proper dimensions is essential for accurate measurement. The widest cuff practicable should be used. Ideally, blood pressure should be measured after a few minutes of rest. Values obtained during sucking, crying or eating will not be representative. As with adults, a child’s blood pressure status should be decided only after it has been measured on a number of separate occasions. Ambulatory blood pressure measurement is being used increasingly in children.

2. Elderly people:

In epidemiological and interventional studies, blood pressure predicts morbidity and mortality in elderly people as effectively as in the young. Elderly people have considerable variability in blood pressure, which can lead to a number of diurnal blood pressure patterns that are identified best with ambulatory blood pressure measurement. These patterns include isolated systolic hypertension, white coat hypertension and hypotension. Elderly patients may also have pseudohypertension, a condition in which there is a large discrepancy between cuff and direct measurement of blood pressure in elderly patients. When conventional measurements seem to be out of proportion with the clinical findings, referral to a specialist cardiovascular centre for further investigation may be an appropriate option.

3. Obese people:

The association between obesity and hypertension has been confirmed in many epidemiological studies. Obesity may affect the accuracy of measurement of blood pressure in children, young and elderly people, and pregnant women. The relation of arm circumference to bladder dimensions is particularly important. If the bladder is too short for the arm as often happens with obese arms, blood pressure will be overestimated – ‘cuff hypertension’. The increasing prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (obesity, hypertension and hyperglycaemia) makes accurate measurement of blood pressure in obese people increasingly important. In some obese patients, the arm circumference is so great that upper arm measurement is not possible and forearm measurement may be the only option. For conventional measurement, the Korotkoff sounds are auscultated over the radial artery and for devices that measure blood pressure by oscillometry (devices for self-measurement and ambulatory blood pressure measurement), the cuff is placed on the forearm.

4. Patients with arrhythmias:

Large variations in blood pressure from beat to beat make it difficult to obtain accurate measurements in patients with arrhythmias. In patients with arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, blood pressure varies depending on the preceding pulse interval. No generally accepted method of determining auscultatory end points in patients with arrhythmias exists. Devices for measuring blood pressure with oscillometry vary in their ability to accurately record blood pressure in patients with arrhythmias. Measurements of blood pressure at best will constitute a rough estimate in those with atrial fibrillation, particularly when the ventricular rhythm is rapid or highly irregular, or both. The rate of deflation should be no faster than 2 mm Hg per heartbeat, and repeated measurements may be needed to overcome variability from beat to beat. Two potential sources of error exist when patients have bradyarrhythmia. If the rhythm is irregular, the same problems as with atrial fibrillation will apply. When the heart rate is extremely slow – for example, 40 beats/min – it is important that the rate of deflation used is less than for people with normal heart rates, as too rapid deflation will lead to underestimation of systolic blood pressure and overestimation of diastolic blood pressure.

5. Pregnant women:

Clinically, relevant hypertension occurs in more than 10% of pregnant women in most populations. High blood pressure is a key factor in making medical decisions in pregnancy. Disappearance of sounds (fifth phase) is the most accurate measurement of diastolic pressure, except when sounds persist to zero, in which case the fourth phase of muffling of sounds should be used.

6. Patients who take antihypertensive drugs:

In patients who take antihypertensive drugs, the timing of measurement may have a substantial influence on the blood pressure. The time of taking antihypertensive drugs should be noted.

7. Patients who are exercising:

Systolic blood pressure increases with increasing dynamic work as a result of increasing cardiac output, whereas diastolic pressure usually remains about the same or moderately lower.

An exaggerated blood pressure response during exercise may predict development of future hypertension.

Low Blood Sugar(Hypoglycemia): Do You Know the Symptoms?

There are numerous conditions that can arise when the body does not process the dietary glucose properly. Hypoglycemia, otherwise called as low blood sugar, is when the blood sugar level in a person’s body decreases than normal value. Individuals with diabetes can get hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) when their bodies do not have enough sugar to use as fuel. It can happen for a few reasons, including diet, few medications and conditions, and exercise. 

In case you get hypoglycemia, record the date and time when it happened and what you did. Give the record to your specialist, so he or she can search for a pattern and adjust your medications accordingly. The most widely recognized reason for hypoglycemia includes medicines used to treat diabetes mellitus, for example, insulin and sulfonylureas. 

The risk is more noteworthy in diabetics who have eaten very less than what is required, exercised more than expected, or have had excessive alcohol. Other reasons for hypoglycemia incorporate kidney failure, certain cancers, for example, insulinoma, liver sickness, hypothyroidism, hunger, an inherent error of digestive system, extreme diseases, receptive hypoglycemia, various medications and liquor. The vast majority feels the symptoms of hypoglycemia when their glucose is 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or lower. Every individual with diabetes may have distinctive symptoms of hypoglycemia depending on their age, stage and other factors. You will figure out how to recognize yours. 

Some of the most common symptoms are: 

Early indications include: 

  1. Confusion 
  2. Drowsiness 
  3. Shivering or shaking 
  4. Hunger 
  5. Irritation 
  6. Headaches 
  7. Pounding heart 
  8. Racing pulse 
  9. Pale skin 
  10. Sweating 
  11. Trembling 
  12. Weakness 
  13. Nervousness 

Anxiety Without treatment, you may get more serious side effects, including: 

  1. Poor coordination 
  2. Concentration issues 
  3. Numbness in mouth and tongue 
  4. Nightmares 
  5. Unconsciousness 
  6. Trouble talking, impaired speech 
  7. Ataxia, incoordination, mistaken up for being drunk 
  8. Central or general motor deficiency, loss of motion, hemiparesis 
  9. Migraine 
  10. Trance, coma like state, strange breathing 
  11. Seizures Individuals with hypoglycemia unawareness do not have any idea about their glucose level drops. 

In case you have this condition, your glucose can drop without you noticing it. Without quick treatment, you can pass out, encounter a seizure, or even go into a state of extreme coma. In case somebody is having an extreme reaction, for example, unconsciousness, it is imperative to inject a drug called glucagon and contact the hospital quickly. People who are at danger for low glucose need to speak with their specialist about getting a solution for glucagon. You should never give an unconscious individual anything by mouth, as it could make them choke. Hypoglycemia should not be ignored. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Salt - 7 Things You Must Know About It!

Salt or more specifically Sodium plays a crucial role in BP management. Too high salt/Sodium ingestion can cause high BP while too low salt/sodium levels can cause low BP. So it is important to maintain an optimum salt intake. Studies have shown that a reduction in the amount of sodium consumed through the diet leads to a noticeable decrease of blood pressure and therefore, it is important to keep salt intake as low as possible. Salt intake is not same as Sodium intake. Salt is Sodium Chloride and is just one of the forms in which human beings consume Sodium. Here are some tips--

  1. Recommended Salt/ Sodium intake - Adults should consume <5gms of salt in a day (appx 1 teaspoon salt)/ Or <2.3 gms of sodium daily. Ideal Sodium intake should be <1.5 gms daily. 
  2. To decrease salt/sodium, AVOID processed foods like Chips, nachos, popcorns, namkeens like bhujiya, salted peanuts etc, pickles, papads, chutneys, sauces like tomato and soya sauce, ready-to-eat meals, junk and fried food like burgers, french fries, cured hams or bacon or salami, packed salty drinks like juices or buttermilk, hot chocolate etc. 
  3. Avoid adding salt from over the top in your salads, soups, curds and vegetables. 
  4. DO NOT Absolutely remove salt from your diet. Hence, Salt used while cooking the food at home is fine, but once the food is cooked do not add extra salt/chaat masala in the cooked food. 
  5. Teach healthy eating habits to your children by encouraging them to eat fruits, vegetables, drinking fresh food and home cooked meals rather than junk food. 
  6. If you are heart failure patient or kidney disease patient discuss with your Cardiologist or Nephrologist about the optimum recommended salt intake specified for you. 
  7. It is difficult to get used to low salt in terms of taste when you are used to salty taste, but it is possible. But the health benefits of controlling salt in diet can play a major role in BP reduction thus preventing the need for medicines, hence it can be worthwhile to get used to low salt taste.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, my father is 64, diabetic and had two heart strokes in the last 15 days, treated with stent. Has low blood pressure as well (110/50), doctors advised him to take Telma 20 mg in the afternoon along with other medications such as Novastat, Zytanix, cardrone linezolid. I heard Telma and Zytanix lowers blood pressure, can he take these tablets?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology, Fellowship in EP
Cardiologist, Delhi
Zytanix is required if patient has swelling and breathlessness. Telma helps the heart to pump more easily. You should continue telma unless BP is falling even lower to below 100. Satanic requirement is decided by fluid retention in body and lungs.

Nasal Bleeding
Hello Everyone.

Myself Dr. Neetu Modgil. I am ENT consultant working in Noida.

Today I am going to talk about the most common problem with the patients i.e. nasal Bleeding. It is not that challenging for the ENT consultant as it a concern for the patient himself or herself. Nasal bleeding there are so many cause behind it. There are so many presentations for it. But my logo for the nasal bleeding which you have to remember from the beginning to the end of this health tip in this video is don t pain, nasal panic no ignore . Basically there is a condition where you do not panic and please do not ignore the problem. Don t think that this is the first and last episode now you don t have to visit the ENT consultant. There can be many concerns about nasal bleeding which would to discuss in this video. First of all nasal bleeding can present in many ways, it can present as a perfuse bleeding, I can present just 1 to2 drops in one or both the nostrils, or it can present as blood mixed with mucus or the flam when you blow the nose. So there are . It can present in children, adults, young, old age. Any age can be effected with the nasal bleeding so there are many causes behind but before we go into the details of the causes because the causes, difference of causes in the pediatric group and the old age group. First I would like to tell you if there is any bleeding if you are sitting some place or if you are somewhere else and your nose starts bleeding spontaneously, please do not panic. The most important thing what you have to do is that pinch your nose. See this is the airline design area, you have to pinch this side of the nose and bend forward, and do this procedure for 3 minutes for the count of three minute, and basically our bleeding time is 2 to 3 minutes. So this is the concern that the patient has to press the press the nose for around 3 minutes at maximum 5 minutes. This send the signal to your brain you have to that the nose blood vessels have to stop bleeding. So this accelerate the procedure to stop the bleeding. This is the most important thing. Secondly the patient think the most common notion among the patient is that high blood pressure is causing the bleeding or high temperature is causing the bleeding so this is what I want clear, basically nasal bleeding is not caused by the high blood pressure but blood pressure is caused by the nasal bleeding when patient reached the hospital in the time, when the time patient reached the hospital he is or she is in so much panic that it creates high pressure. That s the relation between nasal bleeding and high blood pressure. So don t connect your BP with your nasal bleeding, first thing. Second thing hot temperature is not responsible for the nasal bleeding. Basically if we say into our data, our medical data, the most common problem of nasal bleeding is in the dry weather. So as I have already come to the causes so let s discuss in detail about what are the causes of nasal bleeding. For the first, I would like to discuss about the young and adult nasal bleeding causes. The most important thing is the dry weather. When the dry weather is mostly in the autumn season. Autumn is that season of the year, where there is transition from the summer into winter season, September to November month basically. In this season there is no rain, there is less humidity. Even in the winter season if there is no rain in that season it has a less humidity. Even in the summer season if you see just before the June i.e. May and April, it is again dry weather. So this is the dry weather it does not depend if it is hot weather or cold weather. It is the dry weather which is responsible for our nasal bleeding. So usually 80% of the nasal bleeding occurs in the interior part of the nose. There are some blood vessels is the posterior part of the nose also which a patient cannot control so definitely if you are pinching the nose it is controlling the interior part of the nasal bleeding. So you have to be careful the most important cause of the nasal bleeding is dry weather. After the nasal bleeding just apply some lubricants like petroleum jelly any ghee or any ointment in the nose. It will lubricate they nose and prevent the recurring nasal bleeding. And later on please the second thing, most important thing is don t ignore your nasal bleeding. Visit you ENT specialist to rule out the many other causes of nasal bleeding. So for my take away message home for patient is neither panic nor ignore. Please nasal bleeding is not the situation to panic and do not ignore it, visit your ENT specialist to rule out anything serious for the nasal bleeding.

Thank you so much.

Isme se kuch kuch davaiyan, kuch kuch herbs toh nuksan bhi karti hai, aur wo kafi mehngi bhi hoti hai lekin phir bhi blindly sab log woh lete jaate hain. Toh bahut sare examples oyster, banana, dates even aapka watermelon, vanilla, chocolate even toh kuch kuch cultures mei toh giraffe tongue, penis tiger ye funny cheeze bhi aphrodisiac bol ke use ki jati hai. Lekin inter scientific evidence nahi hai, isme se kuch cheeze feel good serotonin level badati hain aur serotonin level brain mein badne ki wajah se feel good effect aata hai, aur woh feel good effect ki wajah se aapke sexual desire kabhi kabhi badte hai, aapka interest badta hai toh uski wajah se aapka desire bade aisa lag sakta hai. Dusra, kuch kuch patients bolte hain ki nahi sir kuch kuch divaiyan bahut acche se kaam karti hain, toh uska ek reason hai koi bhi cheez agar mehengi dawa hai ya koi bhi ek accha doctor hai jiske upar aap pura belief karke aap koi cheez kharidte ho aur khate ho aur purey belief ke saath khate ho, toh ek placebo effect hota hai, placebo matlab aapka man n, aapka psyche, aapka body, us hisab se kaam karta hai acche effect ke liye aur us tarike se bhi kuch effect dikhta hai usko bolte hain placebo effect aur yeh ek scientific phenomena hai. So friends phir aap log bologe ki sabse accha product ya sabse accha sexual power badane wali cheeze ya kya kar sakte hain apne body ke liye ki hamara sexual power achha rahe, mere khayal se sabse acchey aphrodisiac hai aapka well rested body, relax state of mind thik hai, conductive monument activity jahan par koi dar nahi hai aapko aaram see aap sex kar pao, love for your partner, sexual attraction for your partner these are the best aphrodisiac. Second, most important aphrodisiac in your body is your health, agar aap physically health hain diabetes nahi hai, hypertension nahi hai, koi cardiac disease nahi hai toh aap ki sexual health acchi ho jaegi, agar aap mentally ill nahi hai no anxiety, no depression, mind relax hai toh aapka sexual desire badega so that is the best aphrodisiac. Bahut sarey patients bolte hain ki phir khana kya chahiye kya khaye hum, jo bhi cheez jo aapke heart ke liye, body ke liye healthy hai wo aapke penis ke liye aapke sexual activity ke liye healthy hai. Toh dates, banana yeh sari cheeze aapki body ke liye healthy hain toh aapki sexual activity ke liye bhi utni hi healthy hai, toh iska matlab ye nahi hai ki alag se sexual desire badati hai. Koi bhi ad dekhte ho bus stand pe, local mein, newspaper mein ki yeh medicine, ye dawai aisi hai jo sexual power badati hai yeh bahut mehngi hai aisa hai, toh kisi bhi ad ke upar believe na kare kyonki inn sabka koi bhi scientific evidence nahi hai. K oi bhi cheez scientific evidence ke hisab se dekhna chahiye toh bahut jyada in cheezon ke upar paise, time apna kharch na kare.

Symptoms and Treatments for Uterine Bleeding
Here are some treatments and symptoms of uterine bleeding

Symptoms and Treatments for Uterine Bleeding
I m Dr. Sharda Jain, Director of Life Care Centre. I m going to talk today about uterine bleeding.
Uterine bleeding is a very common problem. Every fifth woman after she starts having periods is troubled because of altered heavy bleeding pattern. Now, if she is less than 20 years then, in that particular case, if the cycle is coming less in 21 days and she is bleeding for more than five days and if she does see passage of clots she should, you should not delay it because her haemoglobin is going to dropped out, her studies are going to get suffered, so, please see gynaecologist as early as possible.

Between 20 to 40 years, this time, the bleeding is usually related to pregnancy because these people are married and anytime in case if there is a lapse in using a contraceptive, effective contraception then, in that particular case it is all related to pregnancy. After your doctor s visit and examination a trans-vaginal sonography is done and we find out what is the cause and the treatment is done early.
After 40 years, when the woman has got problems, we have to be worried about it, because at that particular time the chance is we think that they can be uterine malignancy or it can be genital malignancy. Again, it is a very simple procedure.

After doctor s examination, after an ultrasound, opsis, endometrial biopsy is done and that sorts out everything. So, the diagnosis right on the day 1 is done in 90 percent of cases at the end of 48 hours, you find you have a full diagnosis. Sometime the bleeding comes after the stoppage of period that is after menopause and that time we view it just like that it can be, it is cancer unless proved otherwise.
Again, we have to be aggressive here, along with ultrasound, along with endometrial biopsy, hysteroscopy is also done at that particular stage and then we want to find out that there is no underlying malignancy.
Do not ignore the bleeding problem in your wife, in your daughter, in your daughter-in-law.
Seek the doctor s help early.
