Dear Mr.Shailendra Katyal,first of all it is good that all the investigation done are normal.This helps in excluding major causes for your complain.As per your height you are quite over weight,your ideal weight should be around 80 kg.You are falling in obese category and need to reduce your weight .You are quite young also so you have to work hard to reduce your weight.Regarding your current problem the Serta is a good drug and you can take as advised and will not have any problem.There is a possibility of some some stress and anxiety induced problem.So do not worry take medicines as advised.Take care and avoid stress and be active.
