Hello father is a patient of Chronic Kidney Disease. He is undergoing Haemodialysis twice a week since Oct 2008, which started when he was admitted to hospital after Heart attack, which was followed by Angioplasty. This resulted in steady increase of creatinine and dialysis started then onwards.LAst week, his upper hand swelled enormously due to ( i think) blood oozing out and accululating inside his upper arm) just above the fistula) from fistula due to accidental wrong way of puncturing the needles of the pipes for haemodialysis (during one of the dialysis sessions). Thereafter he was prescribed Bruffen 200 mg thrice daily after food for 5 days, with application of ice pack on the swelled hand( we can see clotted blood and his hand has become violet because of that). Is this okay for him and his heart and can taking Bruffen be detrimental/fatal to his health/heart. We are from India, Kolkata. He is 66 and with hypertension with medications and diabetes from long years. What can be effective now?? Or is continuing medication advisable.He is on medication like, Nikoran 10, concor 5, zytanix, rabicip, He is having breathelessness at any minimum exertion. Please help - A Biswas +91-0000

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
