Hi doctor,

I am a 28 year old male. I am having habit of drinking alcohol and using tobacco daily. Since last four months, I feel lightheaded and dizzy. Sometimes, I am having heavy sweating and chest pain. I had done ECG and it was found to be normal. Sometimes, I feel like blood in my saliva. I am feeling uncomfortable with sleep too. Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We are here to help you.

  • Though you are a smoker and alcoholic, a normal ECG does not rule out any cardiac issues.
  • You should get the following tests done on priority:
  1. Treadmill test.
  2. Lipid profile.
  3. Sugar test.
  4. Thyroid profile.
  • This is an important decision. If everything is normal take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone for acid reflux.

Hi doctor,

I have already taken lipid profile, sugar test and TMT. All were normal except my cholesterol, which is 228. My sugar level is also normal.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • This seems to be due to anxiety or acid reflux. Both of these issues are well precipitated by alcohol and tobacco.
  • Take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone for a few days. Quit all addictions.
  • If you would like to get guidance for de-addiction then please let me know.
