All drugs directed at the Central Nervous System will have initial periods of drowsiness. Continue using it. Over a period of about 2 weeks it will settle down.

My daughter suffering from thyroglossal cyst it was removed by surgery ,bone also removed now she suffering from sinus at the same area & there are some discharge also. So what can I do now? She is 7 years old and 24 kg.

MBBS, Diploma In Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Unfortunately, a persistent sinus means that your previous surgeon did not completely remove the thyroglossal cyst. This means that her neck will have to be re-explored and the entire sinus tract removed in-toto! My suggestion is to meet a very experienced Head & Neck Surgeon to do this, so as to leave behind as minimal a scar as possible!

ENT Surgeon advised me Sinus surgery in 2005 for nasal polyps, congestion & thick mucous. However I avoided & kept on taking Ayurvedic & Homeopathic treatment. But in November 2016 it became very serious and Endoscopic surgery was done (Right side was more affected). But in April 2018 it again become very serious and again endoscopic surgery is done (Left side was more affected) My ENT Surgeon who performed both the Surgeries says that it is allergic Fungal Sinusitis with polyps and have to take long time anti allergic and Steroids and even after all this, recurrence & surgery can not be ruled out. Please advise.

Hi lybrate-user, use this app to find an Allergist near you. Please undergo Skin Prick Tests to identify the allergens causing your allergies and undergo Sublingual Immunotherapy for them. This is a long term treatment (3-5 years) but only one that can guarantee a cure! In the meanwhile continue all the sprays and medicines your ENT Specialist has advised to manage the symptoms.

Please suggest. Is balloon dilation method for eustachian tube dysfunction available in india?
Yes! Most corporate hospitals will offer you this option but as it is still imported, it is expensive, unlike Balloons of Balloon Sinuplasty (Balloon cost is ₹34000-MRP). We are all awaiting our Indian manufacturers to introduce Eustachian Tube balloons.

You have two options. Try using AutoCPAP or BiPAP devices (take a trial. If it suits you, purchase it. But remember, this is a lifetime decision) or go in for Sleep Apnoea Surgery. Many people come down to Bengaluru (like Delhi CM Kejriwal) for Sleep Apnoea Surgery, as it is relatively inexpensive here as compared to Mumbai & Ahmedabad. You are welcome to drop into my clinic with all your previous Sleep Study and dynamic Sleep MRI scan reports and let me help you.

No, both belong to the same family. Best you get a intradermal test dose of Moxifloxacin. If there is no reaction, you could use it.

Dizziness - Ways To Treat It!

Dizziness - Ways To Treat It!

Dizziness is usually described as a variety of sensations, which comprise of a feeling of faintness, unsteady, weak, light-headed, giddy or woozy. When dizziness causes a false feeling of spinning and the moving surroundings, it is known as vertigo.

Dizziness can be one of the most common reasons for a visit to the doctor. However, constant feeling of dizziness can affect a person's life drastically, but it is rarely life threatening. The treatment of dizzy sensation and dizziness mostly depends on the symptoms. 

Causes of Dizziness 

The common causes of dizziness are hypertension, certain medication, motion sickness and ear problems, especially disturbances of the inner ear. An injury, infection or poor blood circulation can also lead to dizziness. The triggers of dizziness and the sensations it provides are used to evaluate the cause. Also, the duration of the dizziness and the symptoms lead to a clue towards the cause of the same. 

Dizziness Caused by the Inner Ear Problems 

The balance of the body depends on the combined effort of many parts of the sensory system. These are:

  1. Sensory Nerves: These send messages to the brain in regard to the body positions and its movements 
  2. Inner Ear: The inner ear has the organ of Corti which are responsible for detecting the motions and thereby help in the balance of the body.

In vertigo a person might feel that the things around them are moving, thus creating a swaying or a spinning motion. Vertigo is usually caused by the problems of the inner ear. 

The common causes are:

  1. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), this happens when the calcium particles accumulate in the inner ear canals. The inner ear is responsible for the body movements and balance. 
  2. Meniere's disease, a problem of the inner ear mainly caused by the build up of the fluids, thereby leading to a change in pressure. This causes vertigo along with hearing loss and tinnitus
  3. Vestibular neuritis is the problem of the inner ear and is largely due to infection. Infection leads to swelling of the nerves of the inner ear which affect the body movements.

Treatment of Vertigo Includes:

  1. Rehabilitation of the vestibular system by physical therapy in order to strengthen it. 
  2. Canalolith repositioning exercises - body and head movements basically for BPPV. These movements help to move the Canaloliths(calcium deposits) from the inner ear canals to one of the chambers, which are further absorbed by the body. When the Canaloliths move, it might give rise to vertigo. 
  3. Medicines are given to relieve symptoms of motion sickness and nausea. Antibiotics can be taken in case of infection and swelling
  4. Surgery in some cases.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from stammering problem. Please suggest Is there any treatment to cure permanently.

MBBS, Diploma In Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Stammering and stuttering have an underlying psychological element that must be resolved. You need to meet a Clinical Psychologist, and a Speech Therapist to help you out. This is a long drawn out treatment over a few months.
