Hello Sir. I am having my ears blocked for last 15 days, resulting to that I have slight loss of hearing. I have visited a e.n.t. Doctor and he has said the bone in my nose is tilted making it not enough room for the air to go, that's why your ear is blocked. And my nose needs to be operated in a month. But my question is that nose in the bone is tilted. Ok, I got it. But how come from only last 15 days I am having this problem? The bone has not tilted in last 15 days, right? Please tell me the solution.

Hi. Every now and then I feel mild imbalance as if I am not still or my leg are rocking. The episode increases when I start getting tired (like when I am standing and working for sometime) and then sometime I also get headache/ eyes get heavy along with it. I relax, take a cup of tea or coffee and it almost goes away. This does not happen when I get up in the morning but as day passes. I have anemia taking daily iron and bilateral eardrum perforation (for few years now). What could be the reason and what should be done.

Get your ear checked from an ent specialist. There may be some sort of infection causing secretions inside the ear. Any delay may lead to spread of infection and degeneration of ear bone leading to spread of infection in brain.

Hello Aslam, Smaller holes in the ear drum usually cover up with antibiotics. You will have to undergo a full course of antibiotics. If however the antibiotic fails to cover the hole, surgery will be the best option.

Hi naveen kumar kindly get a hearing test done or if it's done already kindly provide the details that helps in knowing how much hearing loss you have and what type of loss. If there has been nerve weakness generally you are advised nurve kind to improve nerve weakness. But if the hearing loss is more you will benefit with a hearing aid. There is no specific medicines for tinnitus, it's mainly associated with nerve weakness. Take care.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. As you said you have infection. Do routine blood test to rule out whether is it infective, viral or allergic. For productive cough you better do your x-ray chest (p/a) view. Let we know. As you have taken antibiotics n symptomatic rx. Try homeopathy to avoid recurrence and better recovery.

Hello sir, I am 24 year old and live in mumbai. My question is how to stop snoring. I think as per my age I have louder sound snore comes at sleeping. please help me.

Ask Free Question
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.
