If there is some sort of sound in the ear that is bothering u, try n do'valsalva manoeuvre' close your nostrils with your hand & your mouth tightly. Then blow air in your mouth & try n create pressure in oral & nasal cavity. This pressure ll open up one canal between your ear & nose. This might help you. This along with steam inhalation with vicks added to the steaming hot water shd help. Do this 3-4 times every day.

Avoid decongestant nasal drops as they produce rebound congestion. You may use saline nasal drop or steroid nasal spray under medical supervision.

Hi What treatment  have you undergone. Sound in ear or Tinnitus can be multifactorial. TINNITUS etiology can be, due to conductive hearing loss ,sensory neural or neural Tests PTA/Tympanometry SISI Tone decay test THYROID HORMONE TEST PPBS LIPID PROFILE CT BRAIN Depending on the above reports MRI CPA Certain medicines can help Lifestyle changes needed include. 1) Go to bed with TV or music on to block the noise. 2) Exercise to be tired enough to fall asleep  quickly. 3) Neuro vitamins like Vitamin B6/12 and combination  antioxidants. 4 )Some other Tinnitus specific drugs which have  varied results. Avoidance of smoking and alcoholism. Both can aggravate  the problem. 5) Tinnitus retraining therapy 6) Tinnitus maskers If you have done any tests you can share your reports on Lybrate. Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum. Hope this helps.

I have very bad habit of snoring that with loud sound, I am having sinuous problem and got operated, snoring problem starts after getting operated. I seriously want to stop this habit, please help me in detail.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

There are several causes for earache. So best way is to go to an ent surgeon and get correct diagnosis. By that time don't clean your ears with anything, don't use any home remedies in your ears. Sometimes if ent check up is normal than there are some dental problems which can cause earache so dental check up may be required if ent check up is normal.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Yes it is done in india at may centers. Cost depend upon city, hospital. It is a costly surgery. For sinus and nose problems, try taking steam inhalation for 3 times a day. If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines.

My mom is 58 years old. Past few days she's been complaining of a continuous drum like sound from her right ear. Also she's been feeling dizzy every morning as she wakes up from bed. Our physician prescribed her some medications (vertin 16 mg twice a day) and exercises for vertigo. But it is not helping much. Is it an ent problem (inflammation in inner ear?)?

This is because of hypertension. So her blood pressure should be controlled. And start 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. And take ayurvedic medicines like brahmi. Smritisagar ras. And sarpagandha vati morning and evening.

Hello and welcome to lybrate, discharge from ear is generally when there is perforation of ear drum. You need to get it checked by an ent surgeon. For the time being, I think, best ear drop for you will be: oticheck ear drop, 2 drops thrice daily for 14 days. Thanks and get well soon.

Hi, My father has open heart surgery 11 years back (in 2005). He is fine, recently a week back he noticed some blood from his nose. This has happened only once. Do I need to worry, which doctor to consult?

The reason could be very trivial like drying of nasal secretions or finger nail trauma or more serious if it is secondary to clotting mechanism derangement if he is taking clot busters for his heart problems. Check his pt and ptt.

Subtotal thyroidectomy is a surgical procedure, in which the surgeon leaves a small thyroid remnant in situ to preserve thyroid function, thereby preventing lifelong thyroid hormone supplementation therapy but a high percentage of patients still develops hypothyroidism and need levothyroxine therapy depending upon the levels of thyroid hormones (t3, t4, tsh), if they are normal or hypothyroid levels.
