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 keep feeling my heart beat multiple times, too fast. It only happens for a minute or so, then it comes back again. And it usually leaves my out of breath. I went to the doctor last month for anxiety attacks because i also have sharp pains in my wrist, fingers, toes, back, and just about everywhere else. Do you think my heart is beating to fast over anxiety? Or is it something else?

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.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
