I get tensed very quickly. Then headache starts. And I start feeling dizzy. What is the solution?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Hello lybrate user. You have not mentioned about the issues for which you get tensed easily. But in general at your age there is a lot of performance pressure and expectations which may build stress if not handled appropriately. You may need to work on some of your coping skills so as to deal with difficult situations. You may get in touch to learn a few. All the best.

My mother age 60-65. Is getting Dizziness problem after 2, 3 months regularly, without any headache or any other pain. She told when her eyes are open she is fine but if she closes her eye's while sleeping. Her head starts spinning. What may be the problem. And what to do.

Please note the following for your condition: One particular type of chronic dizziness not related to vertigo (a feeling of turning or whirling usually associated with inner ear problems) -- “Patients with this syndrome have chronic nonspecific dizziness, subjective imbalance and hypersensitivity to motion stimuli, which are exacerbated in complex visual environments (e. G. Walking in a busy store, driving in the rain),”. Anxiety can also cause chronic dizziness Treatment: Deep breathing is one of the best ways to deal with dizziness. It will help provide an adequate amount of oxygen to the brain, which in turn will relax the nervous system and reduce dizziness.

Sir, I have tinnitus problem in ear. I have taken lot of treatment s but not relief. Kindly suggest any treatment.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thank you for your query. 1. Almost all people at some point in their lives experience tinnitus. Tinnitus does not have a cure, however, it may be controlled. How severe is your tinnitus on a scale of 1 to 10? 2. Get your ears examined to rule out any ear wax which is one of the commonest causes of Tinnitus. Also rule out any perforation of the ear drum. Decreased hearing also makes one more aware of tinnitus. Get a PTA (Pure Tone Audiogram) done. If you have a hearing loss, amplification may help mask the tinnitus. You may also get your middle ear pressures checked (Impedance Audiometry or Tympanometry). 3. The exact cause of Tinnitus is unknown. However one of the the agreed pathologies is damage to or loss of to hair cells in the inner ear. The role of the brain in the perception of Tinnitus also exists. For example, some people have been relieved of Tinnitus after a cerebral stroke, while some continue to hear it even after the Cochlear (Hearing) Nerve is cut. 4. What is your age? What is your exposure to occupational noise and loud music / earphones / mobile phones? Exposure to loud noise is also a leading cause for tinnitus. 5. If your Tinnitus increases on clenching the teeth, it may require dental bite correction. 6. I have noticed patients who have increased Tinnitus when they are stressed, have fluctuations of blood pressure, low hemoglobin, low blood sugar levels and so on. 7. Cochlear Synaptic Tinnitus may be treated in up to 50% people with Caroverine infusion followed by capsules for two months. Other treatments such as transtympanic steroids, gingko biloba, multi-vitamins and anti-oxidants may also help in reducing Tinnitus. 8. Kindly let me know the results of your investigations. This will help in suggesting further treatment. 9. I must emphasize that in a vast majority of patients of tinnitus, the cause is never found. However there are further treatment options depending on the type of tinnitus. I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them. Regards.

How to get my stomach, ear Vax and Cough cleaned with homemade stuff (no chemicals)

MBBS
General Physician, Jalpaiguri
Consult ENT surgeon urgently. Ear wax can be cleaned in any health center or clinic by simple syringing and suction method. During this method only saline water is used. No chemical is needed gor this procedure. After syringing, most patient feels tinnitus (ringing like sensation in ear) or loud noise in ear. So, lubricants and wax dissolver for ear is given, which is mostly composed of liquid paraffin, sodium bicarbonate and glycerin. No side effects related with these mild chemicals are known to me. If a chemical which treats many have been used effectively, than there is no reason to avoid such medicines. Moreover, natural ways to clear wax is never recommended, because you may end up in perforating your tympanic membrane or infection or any other complication. Yes cough can be treated with homemade preparations. Take Honey (1tsf) with Tulsi leaves (2-3pc) and labanga (1pc) thrice daily. You should take Green tea with Ginger combination liquor tea twice daily. You can also take juice of vasaka leaves (1-2 tsf), if found there. This juice is bitter in taste but best of all homemade preparations for cough. Hope you found some solution from my opinion. These methods are quite laborious. Take care. May God bless you.

My daughter is suffering from chronic tonsillitis for a long time now. We did allopathic and homeopathic treatments but she only got temporary relief. Now she has developed cavities in the tonsils in which food particles got stuck. We want to get the tonsils removed by surgery. Since she is in UK and will have to travel to India for this purpose, I want to know how long it will take her to recover and go back to UK? How many days prior to the surgery she is required to be here in Delhi. Thanking you.

Hello iam ranjeet singh, my question is that my grandfather is uncomfortable to take breathing generally at night, and sometimes the blood comes out from the nose. What should I do. I hope you will understand the problems faced by my grandfather. Thankyou.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Mostly your grandfather has hypertension and cause for nose bleed is most likely to be due to uncontrolled hypertension. Breathlessness also can be due to it. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

My father had a fall 3 months ago on the road and he had a surface head injury. Immediately I had him hospitalized. CT scan was normal. His BP had dropped but with drip it was back to normal. But he has constantly been reporting Vertigo. We have had multiple sessions with a Neurosurgeon who reported everything normal. What is the next course of action.

The most common cause of vertigo after a fall or trauma in elderly is bppv (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). If the vertigo is more on turning in bed or getting up from bed and lasts for few seconds to minutes, then this could be his diagnosis. A simple positional test by an ent can confirm this followed by some exercises which can solve the problem.

Do prevent a sore throat infection, a sore throat (pharyngitis) is normally a symptom of a bacterial or viral infection, such as the common cold. In around a third of cases, no cause for the sore throat can be found. If you have a sore throat, you may also have: swollen tonsils (tonsillitis) fever enlarged and tender glands in your neck discomfort when swallowing I am a general physician who will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan for your case, do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.
