Start taking sips of lukewarm water 2-3 times in a day especially before going to sleep. Avoid taking cold n sour things which aggravates your complaints. Take rumex 30 /2 drops twice for 3-4 days n revart back.

Experiencing Dizziness? It Could Be A Sign Of Acoustic Neuroma

MBBS, MS-ENT, DNB (ENT) -, DOHNS(LONDON) -
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
Experiencing Dizziness? It Could Be A Sign Of Acoustic Neuroma

Acoustic neuromas are tumors that develop on the nerves connecting the ear to the brain. Being non-cancerous in nature, they do not spread to other parts of the body. However, they are characterized by symptoms such as gradual or sudden hearing loss, more pronounced with either of the ears, a ringing sensation in the affected ear, weakness, facial numbness and dizziness.

Causes:

Acoustic neuroma can be of two types: one is sporadic in nature and the other is associated with a condition known as neurofibromatosis type II (NF2). NF2 is basically an inherited disorder identified by benign growth in the nervous system. NF2 being a rare disorder, makes the sporadic type the dominant one. Although the causes behind this type of neuroma are still unknown, long term exposure to radiations, especially around the neck and the head, could be one of the most important triggering factors.

Treatments:

Once the diagnosis is done, treatments for acoustic neuroma depend on the growth and size of the tumor.

  1. Diagnosis with the help of monitoring: Small tumors exhibiting no such symptom or slow signs of growth need to be monitored with the use of hearing tests and regular imaging. In case, the MRI scans are able to trace any sort of development on the part of the tumor or if the tumor poses subsequent difficulties, opting for treatment becomes the need of the hour.

  2. Stereotactic Radiosurgery: Also known as Gamma Knife, radiosurgery is a treatment method wherein controlled radiations are used to treat tumors, thus doing away with the need of making any incision.

  3. Surgical Removal: Surgery performed under general anesthesia is directed towards removing the tumor; that helps to preserve the facial nerve and thus inhibit facial paralysis and hearing loss. The tumor is usually removed either through the ear or through the skull. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Sir, have you visited any ENT specialist so far? Your case seems to be related to either Eustachian tube dysfunction or less likely an inner ear disease. You require a thorough ear and nose examination. Also an audiometry including impedance is to be done and may be a CT PNS. That will surely diagnose your Case.

Having sores inside mouth and tongue and constipation what medicine should I take?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Would you little elaborate like, when and how it started, how long, positions of ulcers, your personal habit of food, occupation - these may help to arrive at some diagnosis. What I can gather you are obese and possibly do not do any physical. What I suggest are: 1) Start brisk walking at least 5 km daily. Do physical exercise like abdominal crunches and all others. 2) Take plenty of oral fluid (plain water) on regular basis. 3) Take high fibre food regularly. 3) Stop animal protein for about a month and stop high fat diet forever. 4) Once or twice week Isogel Husk 3-4 tsp inthe evening with water and take about 300 ml of water immediately after that. Or Mucibeal 2 Tsp in the evening with water and same way followed by 300 ml of water. If your bowels are well clear twice a week, that is enough for your health. But avoid stool to get hard. Gradually withdraw Mucibeal as the condition is improved 5) Hexigel - can be applied locally on ulcers. Add fresh lemon juice at least of one lemon per day, in your diet list. 6) Vizylac - 1 cap twice daily after food for about two weeks.

By phone do you mean mobile phones? if yes then limited use of mobile phones, use land lines as much as possible, if cannot avoid mobile. Use speaker phone, do not use mobile phones when battery very low or signals very bad.
