Dear Piyush, 


The number of hours at work is not a very good criteria to decide if you are stressed out due to work. But it is the nature of the work that is more important. In fact, the most important question is "do you enjoy the work?". 


What is it that is troubling you more? The long working hours .....or the headache and other problems? I ask this question because we are not sure at this point if your headache, tiredness, body pain are due to the long working hours. 


On the other hand, sometimes long working hours are tiresome even in the work we enjoy. Some people bear the pain and keep working, as they have specific achievement goals set for themselves. In those cases, the problems seem to be stepping stones for success. I notice your message is titled "tension at work place". Does it mean that you are not happy with the kind of work you are doing? Do you want to do something better?


I encourage you to think on these lines. At the same time, gastritis should be taken care of.


Drink a lot of water. Mild dehydration is the commonest cause of headache, especially towards the evenings. Eat healthy food. Do a 15 minute physical exercise before you go to work. Even at work, do some stretching or deep breathing occasionally.  


If you work involves traveling a lot, it's a god idea to take short breaks. Wear comfortable shoes, etc. 


In my opinion, the best way to cope up with the stress is to set yourself Goals, and go ahead to achieve them, no matter what. 


All the best.

I recently took myself to A&E because my heart was racing and my blood pressure went up to 180/120. After staying in hospital for 4 hours all returned to normal and the ecg showed a normal but fast beat. Subsequently my gp gave me some info on panic attacks. All blood tests were normal. I have been getting a spate of them recently and pulse races to 120 and at present it is 100, my blood pressure is 170/92....normally it is 138/79. Are these just episodes of panic attacks and can this constant changing in pulse and blood pressure do any harm

I currently take diltiazem for irregular heart beat. I used to take celexa for anxiety for about 12 years. Was feeling ok with the anxiety and went off of it when I started diltiazem. Anxiety is flaring again. Would it be safe to take the celexa and diltiazem?
