User :   ok
Doctor :   Please fill this form I send, I type the necessary information, and say when done.
User :   i dont use too many pillows but i have bad postures while sleeping
Doctor :   Ok.. That could also lead to the Neck Pain.. Certainly you should try the hard mattress and preferably some thing Flat.
User :   moreover, the uneasyness reduces while I work, talking on phone, watch Tv and have sex
Doctor :   With A flat Back..
Doctor :   Thats since you are less conscious about the pain.. and the discomfort.
User :   i am talking the uneasiness in head
Doctor :   the Sinuses would be draining due to gravity at that time..
Doctor :   hence that uneasiness will be less.
User :   when I visited my doctor during high Bp, he has suggested me to go for ultrasound scan of abdomen and renal dopler. why is ithat any idea
Doctor :   Have you filled up the feedback form I sent?
User :   yes, i have filled up
Doctor :   That is due to the reason that most of them are diagnosed at a very late stage of being diagnosed of Hypertension
Doctor :   So the damages that occur due to High Blood pressure are already occured..
Doctor :   hence your doctor might have suggested that..
User :   k
User :   one more thing in both sides of forehead, often i can feel the beat of vein, earlier it was not there but now i can feel it
User :   why is that?
Doctor :   Any rise in Blood Pressure and that will reflect in all the Blood vessels so the pulsations will be felt..
Doctor :   On the temporals..
User :   but now my BP has reduced
Doctor :   It will come down certainly..
Doctor :   With time..
Doctor :   Since that blood pressure will constantly vary..
Doctor :   Time to Time..
User :   ok
Doctor :   as the body itself will make the changes..
User :   so, the headache and other associated issuesalso will take time to come down although the BP has come down
Doctor :   will If the High blood pressure is the cause for the same.
Doctor :   But there are many other causes too.. So you need to be patient since diagnosis is teh key.
Doctor :   Is there any thing else that i could help you with.
