Dr. Nishith Chandra answered

Sharp chest pains are usually not heart related. Could be due to muscular origin.

Visited For Chest Pain
We had traveled all the way from Dubai to meet Dr. Chandra as my mother complained frequent chest pains. What a gentleman he is. He listened with utmost patience.
We were misguided by doctors in duba
We had traveled all the way from Dubai to meet Dr. Chandra as my mother complained frequent chest pains. What a gentleman he is. He listened with utmost patience.
We were misguided by doctors in dubai that my mother has severe cardiac problems and she needs to be diagnosed immediately.
But Dr. Chandra ruled out any cardiac issue within an hour and two tests and said that her heart is perfectly fine and there is absolutely no cardiac problems.
A few doctors have made this a business, which has resulted in people slowly losing their trust on doctors. But human beings like Dr. Chandra have proved that there are still good doctors in India who restore people's faith in this profession, and work only for the betterment of mankind.
Thank you Sir!

Visited For Hypertension
On 3 Sep 2016, when I came from office, I felt am anxious, having palpitation as if heart is beating fast and with more force than normal. I thought that I might have high b.p. I measured using electr On 3 Sep 2016, when I came from office, I felt am anxious, having palpitation as if heart is beating fast and with more force than normal. I thought that I might have high b.p. I measured using electronic B.P machine multiple times it was in range of 150/100. I thought digital b.p machine may not be accurate so went to a clinic nearby. The reading was in the same range. When I came back from home started thinking I might have some heart problem. Soon after heart was racing and went upto 110 bpm and B.P shoot up to 160/110 in home b.p machine. I got scared as I have heard and read that high bp could lead to stroke.
I went to one of a well renowned hospital it was around 9 pm in the night. I got admitted in hospital. They took my ECG and suspected acute myocardial infarction (Heart Attack). My heart rate was 130 bpm. Hearing this, I got badly scared. One of the duty doctor told their staff to give sublingual sorbitrate ( medicine used in angina). But I resisted that I don’t want to take this, please discuss with Cardiologist. Cardiologist came after some time and suggested some more test including Troponin test ( to know if heart attack really took place). The entire test was negative for Heart problems. I just had high cholesterol. I was admitted and was on different medicine like beta-blocker and other anti hypertensive drugs which I came to know after I discharged. I was badly scared.
Next day, another cardiac doctor visited and suggested to go for TMT Test. My heart beat was 120 bpm for normal activity. I didn’t had courage to go for TMT stress test so I refused. Next day, somehow decided to take TMT stress test with 112 bpm resting and test was negative. So doctor has confirmed, I should not have a heart disease.
But this was not the end “I probably had a heart attack or I have serious heart problem" - I was always pre occupied by this thought.
I went to see another cardiologist he too confirmed I am fine. Still I could not able to convince myself that I have a healthy heart.
Then over Practo could able to get details Dr. Nishith Chandra. He did check up, seen my medical records and assured that I do not have a heart problem. He has suggested me to reduce weight. I was 78 Kg that time. He told me to walk 10,000 steps/day. Drink lots of fluid, approximately 4L/day.
I went home, but not even a single second I could able to think that I am as fine as anyone else. I took one week leave and then resumed office. My colleagues started asking well-being. Some suggested that I should be careful as heart disease is serious.
After 15 days, while I was coming from office. I had chest pain. I gave myself auto suggestion that I am fine. It is just a gastric. I had palpitation. By the time I reached home my BP shot up again 160/115, my heart rate raced to 140 bpm. I went to emergency they too did ECG. I carried all my medical records. After one hour I was discharged from hospital. He took blood test, I was hyperventilated. Probably I had a panic attack.
So thought, different things, my work is hectic. I forgot to mention that I am 40 years old management professional working with MNC. I thought to leave job and start my own business.
I applied 2 months leave. The more I took rest the the more my condition deteriorated. Now I cannot even able to walk 2000 steps a day. I used to feel tired, just while walking half a kilometre, my heart rate used to shoot up 140 bpm. You might be thinking how I am so accurate on pulse count. I bought pulse oxy meter! which I used to carry always because I use to believe max allowable heart rate should be 220- age, so in my case its 180 bpm.
I went again to meet Dr. N Chandra; he has done check up and told everything is fine. But this time my bp was 140/90. He suggested changing lifestyle. Reduce weight, drink water 4L/day. Join meditation classes. He has always treated me not as a doctor but as a friend.
Now my problem was increasing day by day. I used to avoid staircases; avoid all strenuous, labour intensive exercise. I don’t want to get involved in discussion, argument or debate. Overcautious as if anytime some emergency might come.
With long rest, my life started becoming hopeless. I used to measure B.P and pulse atleast 10 times a day. Every day I had palpitation. I lost 7 kg weight. After 1.5 months of rest I decided to go to office- but again with oxymeter. I measured almost every 10-15 mins. Measured during ride in auto due to shake it does not get correct reading. Suddenly I felt nausea I got down from auto rikshaw, pulse was 160 bpm. I sat near road side. After relaxing 10 mins I was fine, went home and took rest.
My confidence was totally shattered. I didn’t want to go alone. I always wanted someone to be with me so in case of emergency I could able to take his help. I used to ride slowly, walk cautiously as if I have serious heart problem. Now I can say it was all in my brain and mind. But at that time I was a helpless person.
Again I went to Dr. N. Chandra just after 10 days to previous visit, in Mid December. He took my bp and bp was 150/100. This time I was diagnosed with Hypertension. He put me on Beta blocker 100 mg/day sustained release. I thought, what if, if sustained release doesn’t last for 24 hours, so I asked can I take divided dose of 50mg twice. He said there is no harm. I asked multiple stupid questions. Will my bp medicine can ever be reduced? Can ever my medication be stopped? Dr. N. Chandra always answered my each query with great patience.
I didn’t want to take medicine for hypertension or heart. Actually no one wants by choice. I read about all the side effects of this medicine and started getting all the side effects some of them was gastric, constipation, lack of sleep etc. I clarified with doctor that he told that these are not because of beta blocker.
Reason for worry got increased. Now I was worried about effects of taking beta-blocker. Can I ever able to get rid of?
I decided that I need to get out of this and if I cannot help myself there is nobody who can help me.
It was December 2016, I maintained a dairy and used to write positive sentences “like I don’t have bp”, “ My heart is strong and healthy” etc 7 times. I did this for more than 3 months
- Took Ayurvedic medicine like Arjuna, Ashwagandha
- Did regular walk upto 8000 steps daily
- Included Juice & food good for health
- Included time for worship
- Did meditation
After 3 month, in March 2017, I met Dr. N. Chandra again, he measure b.p it was 130/80. He said excellent. I continued, all the above what I did.
Recently, I met Dr again. This time my bp was 120/80. Metoprolol was reduced to 50mg daily.

I would sincerely like to thank Dr. N. Chandra for helping me out with this tough situation where belief on self was vanished. *** ********** ********* *********** ** *********. Moreover he is a nice person who is always ready to help.
Sorry, for this long blog!

I have been doing treatment of gastro problems from last 4 - 5 months, but have not got much relief, which in turn makes me to feel like I have heart problem as I momentarily get Chest pain, rapid puls I have been doing treatment of gastro problems from last 4 - 5 months, but have not got much relief, which in turn makes me to feel like I have heart problem as I momentarily get Chest pain, rapid pulse, breathlessness, etc. I asked my gastro doctor and internal medicine doctor that if I might have heart problem. They just say all ok or will get ok and give medicines without explanation why I am having these problems. I was doubtful, scared of getting heart attack, stressed, etc.

But, Dr Nishith, explained every thing. And it was wonderful. Other Doctors in hospitals rarely do that, unless he/she knows you personally or you are his/her old regular patient.

He told me that I have no heart problem and with his Explanations....
he simply put me at ease.
Now I have no fear of heart attack or any heart disease as I get these due to acid reflux.
He only prescribed me anti acid and to do regular exercise, to get my fats burn.
Thanks to him. It was really a wonderful consultation.
And as he is one of the Top cardiologist in Delhi ncr, I trust him.
