BENGALURU: I am 35-years-old, suffering from chest discomfort and pain that radiates to my hand. I am not diabetic or hypertensive. I also did my CT coronary angio 2 months ago which was normal. What could this pain be and what precautions should I take to avoid it?
Since your CT coronary angiogram is normal we can safely conclude that the pain is not related to your heart. Other possibilities are that it is musculoskeletal or related to acidity. So no need to worry about any serious consequences. In terms of precautions, do some stretching and bending exercises regularly. Following proper meal time and avoiding spicy food will help.
I am 43-year-old man and I have recently been diagnosed with irregular heartbeat. Though the doctor says there is nothing to worry and has prescribed me medicines, I am concerned if it will get problematic later. I have high blood pressure.
In many patients irregular heartbeats are a benign finding. If it was something to be worried about your doctor would have mentioned it. As a precaution make sure you take your BP medications regularly and keep it under control.
I have started feeling lethargic and fall short of breath even walking for few metres. My breaths are short and I feel as if my heart is exploding. Please tell me what is wrong with me. I am 25-years-old female.
You should consult a doctor for a complete evaluation. With the amount of information available it is not possible to come to any conclusion about what the problem is.
