I have a sinus problem. I use to take medrol 16mg tablet with allegra m. Course got finished but I was still taking medrol 16 mg without consultation of the doctor. But over the period of time I got to know that it has steroid. So I stopped taking it immediately. But after I stopped my full body started paining a lot. I am feeling nausia and illness. But it's been a month I have stopped. Now m feeling bit better. But my bones still pains. What should I do. I think it's a effect of stopping intake of steroids.

Hi lybrate-user. A cough is a sudden and often repetitively occurring reflex which helps to clear the large breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign particles and microbes. Ayurveda addresses cough as the kasa roga. Ayurvedic sciences primarily name the vata dosha as the prime cause of cough although kapha dosha and pitta dosha are also considered responsible. Ayurvedic treatment for cough can be bifurcated into two parts, the usage of herbs and abiding by dietary restrictions. Medication:- medication:- 1. Cof x-5 ml with warm water twice a day. 2. Sitopaladi churna-1/4tsp with honey daily 3-4 times a day. For 5 days. Medicines ayurvedic treatment for cough and cold is also about dietary regulations. Some of the norms to be abided by would include: 1. Warm up the water before drinking as this would soothe the throat. 2. Avoid consuming anything cold directly from the fridge. 3. Do not consume veggies and fruits which have a cooling impact on the body. These would include papayas, oranges, watermelons, green bananas and cucumbers. 4. Preferably you should opt for consuming rice from an older crop if possible.

Hello sir, hope you are doing good. Pls don't stop bp medication, unless doctor ask you to stop. Diabetes, bp require a long term medication. But this might also lead to your constipation problem. If you have constipation more than occasionally or have severe pain or bleeding, it's important to check-in with your doctor as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. However, in most cases constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fiber. The average adult needs between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day to ward off constipation, far less than most of us typically eat. To avoid bloating and cramping, you'll want to gradually add fiber to your diet. Badam, orange, apple has more fiber pls eat as raw. Dont make a juice of it. Let me suggest you some best fiber supplement from who certified. This fiber is easily digestible and give a best result you need to take after meals in the afternoon and evening. Just leave a message to me on my private questions. Have a nice day.

The report 11.5 you mean tsh or any othe rtest. If tsh it is on higher side will need treatment. For breathlessness if wt is 84kg and lbs, then it can be due to weight. Get her bp recorded ecg and pft done to r/o any cardiac problem and asthma.
