hello doc. early in the year I started having pains in my heart that some times could be felt in my left arm and neck,I went to see the doctor who prescribed drugs including an anti inflammatory drug.I felt better for some time and it came back.the past few months has been hell.I don't feel it in my arms like before but I have been feeling the pain in my heart.I am 25,I don't drink,don't smoke and I am not fat.I am slim.I need ur advice

what you describe here is typically chest pain due to a cardiac(heart related) cause. the anti inflammatory drugs are not going to resolve your problem. as per my honest opinion, you should be treated conservatively(without any surgical method).

the treatment of choice for a young patient like you is EECP/ECP(external counter pulsation), which is a machine based treatment for Angina(chest pain). It is a USFDA approved treatment for the purpose. I am not sure whether it is available in Nigeria or not, but in India we have around 200 or so centers providing this service. Any further questions about the treatment, I will be happy to answer them!

the surgical options involve stents and bypass surgery, which i would not like to consider in such a young patient. they are not only more expensive, they are invasive and carry quite a fair bit of complications.

Hello doc, I just discovered my bp is on the rise probably due to excessive drinking which I've put a stop to now. How can I bring down my bp down to the lowest possible level. Now, it hovers around 150/110. The symptom I used to have is a slight headache at the base of my head. Thanks doc

please drink ample quantity of water and limit your salt intake. also decrease the amount of fried stuff in your diet. and please get into mild exercise like walking for 30 minutes everyday.

Thanks for your good wishes. Wish you a merry X Mas and a very happy new year.
Please get a HRCT Chest done to rule out any abnormality of the Aorta(Aneurysm etc).
Also, please ask your physician if he could consider any problem with the pancreas.

It is not easy to guide such a case from so far. I will try to provide the best guidance but you will need a physician locally to help you pin point the exact problem and rectify it.

Wish you all the best!

Hi Dr Sandhu, a bp no of 120/89 is it borderline hypertensive, secondly I engage in extreme cardio exercise whereby my HR shoots up to 188 and then drops, are there any dangers associated with this sort of exercise. Am worried of any long term damage this might cause to the heart. My father died of myocardial infarction last year aged 65..

second question please, my father in law has been diagnosed with CHF, he is suffering from SOB, peripheral oedma,extreme exhaustion, and vomiting. He is 60yrs old, he is presently been treated by a renowned cardiologist in Enugu. I just need to know what the prognosis are, can it be cured or just managed. Thanks for your help Dr.

Considering your family history of Heart Disease, you should engage in regular exercise but not in extreme cardio workouts. It can cause unnecessary stress to your Cardiovascular System, which can cause serious problems in the future.

In case of your father in law, CHF needs to be treated at the earliest. I recommend ECP(External Counter Pulsation) for the treatment of CHF. This treatment is approved by USFDA for the same. It results in very good improvement in the patients symptomatically, and the medicines also can be reduced. I have posted some details about this treatment earlier as well.

It is available in India at a much cheaper price as compared to USA or UK. If you need details, you can mail me directly at chandansandhu@gmail.com.

this sounds like Angina. You need to be investigated further. An ECG and Echocardiography would be helpful.

@DrSandhu: Have been following your posts, you are a good doctor! I love the way you address ppl's problems.

Hi Doctor. I am 22yrs , I'm extremely slim and I don't drink or smoke. Am having pains in my heart that some times could be felt in my left arm down to my back. I've been to one of the most reliable hospitals here in Nigeria (O.A.U Teaching Hospital) and I was asked to run various tests like ECG, ECHO, blood tests and even chest x- ray but all the test shows that there is nothing wrong with my heart according to the doctor but I still feel the symptoms especially when I am resting. I've been having palpitation and angina for about 4 years now. I noticed lately that after wakin up... the rate at which my heart beat is scary!! Am scared... Am dyin slowly!!! And have stopped growing, am too skinny... sometimes i think am being infected wiv H.I.V/AIDS. Pls help!!
