Question: My grandfather is around 77 years. He was diagnosed with kidney stone some 5 years ago which was not a problem for him at that time. Nowadays, it has started giving problems like chest pain, disturbed sleeping, one sided sleeping, less hunger, etc.. When diagnosed again for some of the tests suggested by local doctors, the stone size is now significant and is now about 11mm, other tests are not a worry. I have two questions: whether he should be going under surgery or take some medicines at home to get relieved? Second, because he is not very much comfortable with surgeries, which medicines he might try to begin with? Is AIMIL NEERI syrup good for kidney stones? The position of this kidney stone is somewhat in the ureter (below the kidney).

Brief Answer:
surgery is required

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX

Your grandfather is having a kidney stone of 11mm. Definitely, this needs surgical removal. Any kidney stone more than 10mm in size would require surgical removal.

It cannot be cured by medicines.

Please advise him to undergo the surgery.

no, AIMIL NEERI syrup is not good for kidney stones. There are no clinical trials on the same to prove it.

Since the stone is in the ureter, it can be easily basketed through the basket surgery.

I wish your grandfather and you, a very good health.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
