Health Q&A
High blood pressure and heart problems.

I live in a high rise block of flats on the 9th floor and soon they will be taking the only working lift out and placing a new one in. This we believe will take around 4 months. My question is I have high blood pressure and have been and will be in the next coming year tested for a hereditary heart problem. So currently unaware if I have this. Will walking these 9 flights several times a day be ok or should I asked to be temporarily moved till the work is carried out?

Liver Problem or Just Muscle Damage?

I've just undergone a full medical checkup. My health conditions are all normal and I am generally fit. However, I feel a few causes of concern: Globulin 1.6 mg/dL (range is 2-3.5?), SGOT 169 U/L (limit is 40?), SGPT 65 U/L (limit is 40?), and a normal GGT. My ECG has a comment that says sinus bradycardia. Please help me out regarding the abnormal levels and ECG output. Should I be worried or could this just be a result of physical strain or exercising? Looking for a practical answer - Thanks!

Dropped feeling in chest

Hello Doc, Today while I was jogging, I had a sudden feeling like something dropped in my chest. Or it could be my heart skipped a beat. It was just for a quarter of a second. Before I thought of stop jogging everything was normal. I continued my jogging. But I was unable to do my routine exercises thinking about the feeling I had. Is this something serious warning, if it is whom should I consult ? Thanks in advance. Regards Naresh
