Tension could be one of the causes for the thumping in the ear. There is nothing to worry about. It should settle down on its own. There is no quick fix treatment for this.

A lot of people whenever they have any spicy food the nose starts running. The spicy foods trigger the nasal mucosa to produce excess mucous. The only way to prevent this is to avoid eating spicy foods. If you like having spicy foods there is no harm in the nose running. It is a very temporary problem. So you can choose what is it that you want.

Hi, Welcome to the Lybrate. Less likely to be the cancer. These could be the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. I suggest you to get Xray of paranasal sinuses and a throat swab culture. To rule out the actual cause.

This is a normal phenomenon and this wax is protective in nature and protects our ear drum, you should not clean your ears as once you clean your ears than the process of wax formation starts otherwise our ear has migratory skin which expells out every thing in the canal and there is no need to clean your ears and let the water go in, this is how it works, contact for further queries

Vertigo can be due to several causes such as Infection, such as the ones that cause the common cold or diarrhea, can cause temporary vertigo via an ear infection. This inner ear infection is generally viral, harmless, and usually goes away in one to six weeks, would like to advice you to take medication for next 3 days, if symptoms persists after 3 days, I would like you to visit ENT specialist doctor for clinical examination. Mean time you also perform some home remedial manoeuvres such as Sit on the edge of your bed Quickly lie down on your back, with your head on the bed Slowly sit up, but remain on the bed a few minutes.

Know More About Sinusitis

Hi, I am Dr Monty Talwar. I am practising Homeopathy from last 21 years. Presently I am practising in Gurgaon. Today I will talk about Sinusitis.

Sinusitis is a very common condition we face specially in young adults. The most common symptoms of sinusitis we see are;

  • Cough
  • Cold
  • Headache
  • Cheek pain or ain resembling tooth ache
  • Nose discharge which may be thick, yellowish, greenish
  • There may be heaviness in the head.
  • Sometimes there is a post nasal discharge or nasal blockage.
  • Also the patient may complain of fever.

The most comon causes are;

  • Air pollution
  • Bacterial infection
  • Viral infection
  • Allergies

Lot of time we get patients which are exposed to humid or cold weather also. The symptoms are when the sinuses are inflammed, then the patient may complain of pain in the cheek region and sometimes it may resemble a toothache.

  • And if there is a frontal sinus inflammation, then the patient may have a dull headache and a heaviness in the forehead.
  • If it affects an Ethmoidal sinus, then there will be pain between the root of the nose and in between the eyes.
  • When the sphenoidal sinus is inflammed, then there will be pain behind the eyes.

Now the symptomatic approach to the treatment will be steam inhalation which helps in liquefying the discharges and the discharges can easily flow out and patient feel relieved.  Sometimes we also advice gargeling with warm water. Now in Homeopathic approach, when patient comes with acute symptoms such as cold, cough, discharge from the nose, fever or headache we give acute medicines based on the acute totality of the patients.

Once these patients are relieved from the acute symptoms then we go to the constitutional medicines. A lot of time we see that the recurrent sinusitis will lead to chronic sinusitis. So, in such cases we need to give a deeper acting medicines called the Constitutional medicines.

Constitutional medicines are given on the basis of patient's nature, temperament, personality, physical generalities, whether he is more comfortable in hot weather or cold weather, how much he seats, food likes and dislikes, stool, urination, apetite, thirst etc. So on these basis we make up te consitutional medicines for the patients which we corelate to the homeopathic medicine. These medicines are very deep acting and they stimulate the imune system of the patient so that the frequency of the attacks that they keep getting, the intensity of the attacks over the period of time reduces till the patient feels relieved with the symptoms. 

So, this is how we tackle sinusitis case in Homeopathy.

Ifr you have any query regarding Sinusitis or any complaint, you may consult me through Lybrate or visit my clinic on Sohna Road, Gurgaon.

Thank you.

Ethmoid sinus problem, like sinusitis, can cause a pain which makes you believe it is coming from the eye. Actually, the origin of the pain is behind the eyes. Medications prescribed for sinusitis will also relieve your eye pain within 1 or 2 days. Otherwise, if pain in the eye persists, it needs an ophthalmologist consultation immediately.

Hi! Fatigue and stress is only due to your continuous work last week, and not drinking water. I wanted you to take papaya along with other mixed fruits night before going to sleep twice in a week papaya will do, but other fruits daily. You will have proper motions. Do not worry. Medicine not required. Take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I am on the following allergy medications everyday for the past 5 to 6 years. Telekast 10 tabs, flutiflo nasal spray and combitide 250 inhaler. I very desperately want to discontinue all meds. Can you please show a way? I tried being off Telekast for 20 odd days and started using the inhaler and nasal spray on alternate days but today I was forced to start all the things again as I am finding it difficult to breathe because of a blocked nose and that in turn has started a headache. Please advise. Pls also tell me about the long term side effects that I may get by continuing the meds.

I am having Sinusitis problem since years. I tried all the possible options for treating, consulted number of ENT & Homeopathic doctors but did not helped in permanent curing. Thus, I often take anti-allergic medicines which has become a practice for me during weather change. Can you please suggest some good ways to restraint it, at least I can stop taking anti-allergic. Please help.

Do steam inhalation regularly. You might be benefitted with a short course of steroids and antibiotics if needed. Please rule out nasal polyps, asthama,and other systemic illness which might aggravate your condition like ciliary akinesia, I immune suppression. Go for endoscopic sinuse surgery to relieve congestion and irrigate sinus if above measures do not work.
