Sickle Cell Anemia Treatment

Health Q&A
Consistent high BP

Suffering with high BP consistently for over 15 years now. The range is usually 200+ and 95+. With medicines taken twice a day ( telmisartine+ metaprolone) 50/40, it maintains to 175+ and 90+. Without taking medicines there are no symptoms observed now a days, it was only initially observed 15 years back when problem started. Have consulted many doctors , they seem helpless now as this is the best medicine they seem to have, which is also not very effective. Thus taking medicines have now become more of a occasional activity and not regular, since they don't seem to be effective. Can anything be done about it or leave it to situation, and wait for the consequence .... which is very scary.

Burn,poking sense in hear

My father had attach 7 months and 2 stent were placed in LAD and LCX. from then he is having some pain and when we met the cadiologist he said its muscle pain and asked him go to regular work. From past 20 days he is getting burning sensation in the heart and after he compeltes his morning walk and rests down for few mins and it goes off. Today when we met his doctor he told that angiogram should be done since there might be new blocks formed in the stent or other areas. Does heart burn relate to block in heart valves and should angiogram be performed. Is it a gastric problem.

Increased heart rate

Dear Doctor, I am a 30-year-old male, 73 Kgs, 173 cm, smoker. I have been checking my heart rate over the past few weeks and it is constantly between 95 to 105. I have checked with 3-4 devices at different intervals during different days and my heart rate just would not go below 95. I had a blood test recently and my HSCRP, Cholesterol and all cardiac tests are within the normal range. I have started working out recently and am trying to cut down on cigarettes. Currently I smoke on an average of 8 cigs a day. Seeing the heart rate constantly on the rise is making me nervous, and I would like someone to help me reverse this condition.
