I'm 33 years male from delhi one year back I had done deviated nasal septum surgery. I was suffering left side nose blocked problem after surgery my left nose is open but during sleep one side nose is closed or left side or is right side and bcoz of that I can't sleep deeply. I had use all nasal spray for short time and all anti histamine but I didn't got any benefit. I had talk to ENT Dr. about nasal septoplasty but they said to me is not hundred percent solution of my problem bcoz mostly nasal surgery are bound again. I am specially feel that problem in cold season or in air conditioner in warm season. I m very much desperate to my condition. L am before sleep always carry a water bottle near to my bed with me for dry mouth. Bcuz one side nose blocked I breathing through mouth and I wake-up between sleep and drinking water 4 to 5 times. That's happening with me since 5 years. Plzz suggest me what I do next for my nasal congestion during sleep?

Hi, thank you for writing in. 1. These symptoms are due to nasal turbinate hypertrophy. 2. Since you have taken medical therapy and had a septoplasty, get a plain ct pns (para nasal sinuses) done and share the images. 3. At the same sitting get a plain ct pns with 1 mm coronal, axial and sagittal views pre and post decongestion with nasal decongestant drops (0.1 % xylometazoline). After the first scan use 5-8 drops of otrivin nasal drops in both the nostrils. Wait 15 minutes by the clock and re - scan. Print and compare the images with each set and with any change in your symptoms (improvement in nasal patency). 4. For hypertrophy of the nasal turbinates, radiofrequency or coblation works well. Thus should reduce your symptoms. Regards.

I have nasal congestion problem dit it add to my snoring problem as I start snoring harder and harder day by day.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It is not the nasal congestion that is the problem for you causing snoring but it is your excessive weight which is the real culprit------------But yes, congestion can add to your existing snoring problem--------- Homoeopathic medicine------------- LEMNA-MINOR Q (SBL) Drink 15 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 5-7 days------------------------- Report me after 7 days------------- Snoring is also the most common symptom of a potentially serious health problem—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA. People who suffer from OSA repeatedly and unknowingly stop breathing during the night due to a complete or partial obstruction of their airway. It occurs when the jaw, throat, and tongue muscles relax, blocking the airway used to breathe. The resulting lack of oxygen can last for a minute or longer, and occur hundreds of times each night. --------------------If you are suffering from any one of the below given causes of OSA, then please consult me with details. Myself being a homoeopath will surely advise you some very effective medicines to treat your OSA as we cannot treat all cases of OSA without knowing the proper cause otherwise a general medicine for OSA will only suppress the problem for a shorter time-- OSA has been linked to:--- •Acid reflux---- •Frequent nighttime urination--- •Memory loss-- •Stroke-- •Depression-- •Diabetes- •Heart attack- •Consistent lack of sleep-- Discuss with me if you have symptoms of anyone of the above problem--

Everybody should take Tetanus injection within 24 hours of any cur or abrasion if you are not vaccinated since lat 6 months.Although chances of getting Tetanus are remote but I think we should not wait for mishappenings to happen and Missshappenings do happen although rarely.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Hello. For sore throat, need to follow the points: - Avoid cold things, fried/ oily food. -Avoid excessive use of voice/ roughly using voice or else shouting. - Gargle with salt and warm water solution thrice daily. - Take Ginger tea. - Avoid excessive cold air or sudden change of temperature (like coming from heat/ sunlight to an A/C room). - Can cover your throat with a stole.

I am having problem with my throat. Post pregnancy (delivered on Jan 2013) my thyriod levels aren't keeping well and as a result I have to stick to thyronorm tablets. For the past 6-8 months, my throat becomes soar whenever i speak a lot or consume cold items (very minimal consumption). As a result I also notice problems with my voice - it seems to be changing.

This voice change can be due to ur thyroid problem.Get a fresh thyroid profile done so that dose of thyronorm can be adjusted accordingly.

Pain and itching in throat may be due to allergy cum infection in throat. Through examination of throat is required. If required after taking throat swab for culture and sensitivity, accordingly antibiotics and antihistamincs, analgesics can be given.

Snoring is usually due to any obstruction between nose and larynx like obstructed nasal cavity by deviated nasal septum or polyps, adenoids, tonsils, bulky tongue, lax throat muscles, over weight etc . consult ent specialist.
