Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.

I am 23 years old. Till the age of 17 my voice was very good and melodious. I used to sing songs in my school days. But after the 17th year I got addicted to the "Sugam pinch Mukhwas" for some time. And after that I was feeling some variations in my voice. That is I couldn't speak clearly, sing with good voice, speak loudly, as before. It feels like something blocking my voice inside my throat. Before 3 years from now, I had my (Nasal Septoplasty) surgery done. But I think it didn't went good and sometimes I still feel problem while breathing and speaking. And before some few months from now I had my blood test done. And the doctors said that I have some kind of throat infection and I did noticed that several times as I spit some kind black fluid in very little amount can be seen in the saliva. So is there any effective solution to my problem i.e. To get my melodious voice back, speak loudly and clearly, breathe easily? I am ready for any treatment - Homeopathy, Ayurvedic, etc.

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Dear Doctor, I have ear problem from long back and last 2 years back my ear drum got affected and teared. Local doctor suggested for surgery but I did not make it. 2 weeks back I got small unconfirt in the ear like itching. Instead of cleaning with cotton, I used 4 drops of olive oil 2 times in alternative days. After that I did not find any unconfort in my ear. After 1 week I am facing bubble bursting in my ear. Is this olive oil effect or any other problem. Please suggest and advice what I will do.

Getting tonsil infection tells that your eating habits are not good, either you take less of spicy food or less of salty food, to avoid it often keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you. Regarding your fatty liver you need to tell me about your drinking alcohol habit or fat diet intake, reduce it, if have it.

Sir I have a problem of snoring due to give bone of my nose and also feel unhealthy for breathing and have cold.

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.
