Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.

Earlier symptoms of disease was the cause for taking medical consultations and treatment. Over the last few years we are having an increased awareness about various medical conditions and preventive health measures are available to detect and treat most health conditions in India these days.

You are right in putting forth your concern that you get Lipid profile, liver function tests, ECG and TMT done every year. I would like to make you aware that most tests are to screen the population for the risk of developing significant disease conditions in the future and to prevent or delay them.

Rosuvastatin 5mg Metolar xr 25 and amlopres 2.5 might have been given to your for increased cholesterol and high blood pressure. Symptoms of decreasing circulatory functions generally affect the heart in the beginning. This may include shortness of breath on walking, weakness and palpitations. This usually happens when the circulation is getting decompensated. This may be followed by signs of heart failure. Please do not worry if your tests are as these take months to develop.

Symptoms of heart failure include:
1. Congested lungs. A weak heart causes fluid to back up in the lungs. This can cause shortness of breath with exercise or difficulty breathing at rest or when lying flat in bed. Lung congestion can also cause a dry, hacking cough or wheezing.
2. Fluid and water retention. A weak heart pumps less blood to your kidneys and causes fluid and water retention, resulting in swollen ankles, legs, and abdomen (called edema) and weight gain. This can also cause an increased need to urinate during the night as your body attempts to get rid of this excess fluid. Bloating in your stomach may cause a loss of appetite or nausea.
3. Dizziness , fatigue, and weakness. Less blood to your major organs and muscles makes you feel tired and weak. Less blood to the brain can cause dizziness or confusion.
4. Rapid or irregular heartbeats. The heart beats faster to pump enough blood to the body. This can cause a fast or irregular heartbeat.

High blood pressure also causes disease of kidneys, eyes and brain.

The symptoms of decreasing neurological function can be many depending on the nerves being affected.

1. Autonomic nerve damage may produce the following symptoms:
inability to sense chest pain, such as angina or heart attack
too much sweating (known as hyperhidrosis) or too little sweating (known as anhidrosis)
dry eyes and mouth
bladder dysfunction
sexual dysfunction

2. Damage to motor nerves may produce the following symptoms:
muscle atrophy
twitching, also known as fasciculation

3. Sensory nerve damage may produce the following symptoms:
tingling or prickling
problems with positional awareness

Hope your query is answered.
