Surgery for sinusitis is a relatively safe one. Please follow the instructions of operating surgeon. You may have difficulty in breathing from nose temporarily. Since you have allergy problem also, you may have to take certain medication for a long time.

Hi zeeshan. I can understand the pain you are going through. For your tonsillitis .start with warm salt water gargles atleast twice daily and pain killers twice daily too. This should ease your pain. But for complete treatment you need to visit an ent surgeon. Take care dear.

I have a prblm in my ear. There is a sound coming from my right ear. I have checked it. There is a pin drop hole in it doctor said. I want to overcome this prblm. Wat will I do to overcome this prblm.

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Hi lybrate-user, do you have any infection in ear, first treat that, then automatically it heals on it own and hole closes. If not it should be operated. Do once audiometry and revert me back with report. Based on the functioning of tympanic membrane and extent of damage we can proceed with treatment. Tc.

Is it normal to have throat pain for those who are on medication for hypothyroidism?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Any pathology of thyroid will not cause throat pain and we have to rule out pharyngitis for throat pain

My son is suffering from Tonsillitis, all the tests have gone through and doctor suggested to go for a surgery to remove those, is there any other source in Ayurveda/Homeopathy without having a surgery to reduce Tonsils. Please suggest, Thanks.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
If your son is suffering from throat pain every 2 months or 5 to 6 times in a years it is better to get operated. I haven't seen patients getting relief by alternative medicine Ample of research has been done regarding tonsillitis and tosillectomy. Patients improves very well after surgery. They will have very good mental and physical growth Don't worry about General aneshesia and surgery risk. Complications are extremely rare. Its a day care surgery. Kid will go home in evening.

1.Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with Karvol plus inhalant capsule 2.If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain Xray PNs/CT scan of PNS or nasal endoscopy after consulting ENT specialist to confirm diagnosis 3.If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.

I have never had any disease but yesterday I felt bit giddy. I checked my bp. It was 150/100 in right arm and 120/80 in another arm. I also felt palpitation. Now today I m bit better. Bp is now 130 /90 in right arm n 120/80 in left arm. I am studying most of the time. So I have a sedentary lifestyle. I dnt go for walk or exercise. I sit for most of the time. I m only 27 years old. What is the reason for this?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Go for 30 minutes of casual walk in the evening every day. That's all you need. You will get blood pressure and may be other diseases if you neglect your health. Check your blood sugar, thyroid also. Nowadays people in 20 get sugar.

Hi, I am suffering from throat infection. What should I do to get rid from this? Please reply me fast. Its urgent.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
throat infection may be due to infection of bacteria or virus.In rare cases, a throat infection may be due to a fungal strain. A fungus known as candida albicans is known to cause throat infections. if in throat infection there is throat may be too swollen for you to consume solid foods. So, eat only semi-solid foods or soups and broths. you should stop smoking when you have a throat infection. Smoking may aggravate your infection and cause you further pain and discomfort. If you have someone in your family who smokes, stay away from them as second-hand smoke can also cause you a lot of discomfort. Gargling with warm water and salt is another effective way to provide warmth to your throat and soothe it. Drinking a cup of hot milk with a pinch of turmeric,it is a home medicine for throat infection.if still problem will remain same then you can take homoeopathic medicine with share your complete medical history for further management.

I am suffering from summer cold like running nose, pain in throat and cough. I avoid cold water and taking bath while sweating but I think temperature difference in office and outside (have to walk considerable distance to reach office) is causing this.

I have a continue sound in my left ear since last 6 year. I am very worried about it. Please suggest me.

MBBS
General Physician,
you may be having perforation of tympanic membrane of the ear or some defectsbin the bony structure of middle ear. consult a EN T specialist.

Most of the times during night I feel congestion in my nose. Sometimes I feel I can't breathe properly. Also my heartbeat is too fast during this phase.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
take steam inhalations , when you exert to breathe better , there is strain on heart and this may be the reason for increase in heart beat. mostly congestion in nose is due to external factors like smoke and pollution and taking anti allergic tablets at bed time helps. but do inhale steam and clear the congestion. you may spit out flegm which shows some amount of pollutants in it.
