I have a problem with my ear, it's swelling and paining from 2 days. I don't know the reason. What I have to do?

I have a problem with my ear, it's swelling and paining from 2 days. I don't know the reason. What I have to do?
Dear, Most likely you have got otitis externa, which is bacterial infection of external ear. Take paracetamol 500 mg three times a day, take soft diet, dont chew, and apply warm packs around ear. It should resolve. If you find no effect, you need to consult ent doctor in person. Hope this opinion helps.

According to your age nd height your weight should not be more than 80 Kg--------------------. Muscle cramps may be c aused by many conditions or activities, such as: ---------------------- 1. Exposure to cold temperatures, especially to cold water.--------------- 2. Other medical conditions, such as blood flow problems (peripheral arterial disease), kidney disease, thyroid disease, and multiple sclerosis. ----------------- 3. Standing on a hard surface for a long time, sitting for a long time, or putting your legs in awkward positions while you sleep.---------------------------- 3. Not having enough potassium, calcium, and other minerals in your blood.------------ 4. Being dehydrated, which means that your body has lost too much fluid.------------ 5. Taking certain medicines, such as antipsychotics, birth control pills, diuretics, statins, and steroids.------------------------ You may need to try several different ways to stop a muscle cramp before you find what works best for you. Here are some things you can try:--------- •Stretch and massage the muscle.------------- •Take a warm shower or bath to relax the muscle. A heating pad placed on the muscle can also help.--------------------- •Try using an ice or cold pack. Always keep a cloth between your skin and the ice pack.------------------- •Always keep a Homoeopathic Pain killer medicine MAG PHOS 6X besides you and when ever you experience such leg cramps start chewing this medicine 4 tabs every 5 minutes till pains subside-------------------------- •If your doctor prescribes medicines for muscle cramps, take them exactly as prescribed. Call your doctor if you have any problems with your medicine.-------------- •Drink plenty of fluids. Will often help cramps.----------------------

Hello lybrate-user, the feeling of weakness in sex is only psychological, so you feel happy and energetic at the time of sex and try to indulge yourself and your partner with full involvement and tension free and repeat sex after again and again than you will feel better sex in subsequent act. Good luck and take care.

Your hba1c level is too high. You must start the anti diabetic medicines immediately or else it may lead to severe complications. After 3 months once the hba1c levels are normal you can opt for ayurveda medicines.

Because of family problems. You are affected with depressive thoughts. You need rest. You are frustrating internally. It is called post trauma stress. You need friendly support that may not available in home always worrying about family matters. Better to take the help of your parents and relatives. Express your internal problems with them. Do not be alone. Everyone have problems. You are repeatedly thinking alone it may cause depressiveness. Because depressive thoughts your mood also swings time to time. Please do not sit alone. Share the problems with others. Take good food. Take rest most of the time. Do not think too much about your husband. He is not understand your problems then why do you give much priority to husband words. Leave it or take it easy. Give priority for yourself. Ok best wishes always with you. Ok best of luck.

ANAEMIA CAUSES SYMPTOMS AND CURE

Bachelor of Naturopathy & Yogic Sciences (BNYS), MSc nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
What Is Anaemia?
Anaemia develops when you don’t have enough robust, healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body. The blood cells may lack enough haemoglobin. Anaemia affects one in 10 teen girls and women. It also develops in men and children and is linked to some illnesses.

What Are the Symptoms of Anaemia?
The symptoms of anaemia vary according to the type of anaemia, the underlying cause, the severity.
Symptoms common to many types of anaemia include the following:
• Easy fatigue and loss of energy
• Unusually rapid heartbeat, particularly with exercise
• Shortness of breath and headache, particularly with exercise
• Difficulty concentrating
• Dizziness
• Pale skin
• Leg cramps
• Insomnia
• Soreness of the mouth with cracks at the corners
• A tingling, "pins and needles" sensation in the hands or feet.
• Lost sense of touch
• A wobbly gait and difficulty walking
• Clumsiness and stiffness of the arms and legs
• Dementia

Dietary Changes needed
Low levels of vitamins or iron in the body can cause some types of anaemia. These low levels might be the result of a poor diet or certain diseases or conditions. Common vitamin supplements are vitamin B12 and folic acid (folate). Vitamin C sometimes is given to help the body absorb iron.

Iron
Your body needs iron to make haemoglobin.
Good sources of iron include:
• Eggs
• Red meats
• Spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables
• Tofu
• Peas; lentils; white, red, and baked beans; soy beans; and chickpeas
• Dried fruits, such as prunes, raisins, apricots , pistachio, dates, almonds, figs.
• Prune juice
• Iron-fortified cereals and breads
• Honey
• Jaggery
• Peanut butter

Vitamin B12
Low levels of vitamin B12 can lead to pernicious anaemia. This type of anaemia often is treated with vitamin B12 supplements.
Good food sources of vitamin B12 include:
• Breakfast cereals with added vitamin B12
• Meats such as beef, liver, poultry, and fish
• Eggs and dairy products (such as milk, yoghurt, and cheese)
• Foods fortified with vitamin B12, such as soy-based beverages.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron.
Good sources of vitamin C include:
• Citrus fruits rich like oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and similar fruits.
• Other fruits rich in vitamin C include kiwi fruit, strawberries, and cantaloupes.
• Fresh and frozen fruits, vegetables, and juices usually have more vitamin C than canned ones.
• Vegetables rich in vitamin C include broccoli, peppers, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, and leafy green vegetables like turnip greens and spinach.
