I have mild breathing problem, I was a good smoker till two years back for more than a decade. Nos am 64 yrs. Generally I feel some sort of whistling sound from inside, may be some time while sleeping also some time. When I take inhaler forocart 200, in 5 to 19 min, breathing will be alright. Last week I could not take in immediately when I felt short breathing while in market, but I could not reach home by walk, in between I felt uneasiness with cough, motion also came out, in the road itself I felt unconscious. People feathered informed my wife and took me to borrow hospital. In the way to hospital I have been given mouth to mouth respiration by pressing chest continuously. After reaching hospital I regained conscious and given nebulisation and became alright in one hour. I like to know, whyit happened to me? is there some thing serious in such condition? what are the precautions I should take while travelling by air or rail or by walk? please revert and thanks.

You are more likly to have copd, considering your smoking history. Kindly get a spirometry done and post bronchodialator spirometry also to decide reversibility of airway obstruction, its severity, its diagnosis, asthma/copd. If copd change to tiomate 2puff once day with spacer. Also check your spo2 concentration and its fall on exersion. Get an holter done to r/o any arrythmia. Better consult a local pulmonologist for better planning your treatment.

Sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. But most of the time patient comes to us after trying everything which he/she hears from neighbors, tv channels, ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

I have used steam inhalation and nasal spray. It helps some. Do I need antibiotics or other medicines.

Hi, mostly, you would not require antibiotics here to cure your issue of dried nasal mucous. Steam inhalation, 2 to 3 times daily, should help. At the same time, I would recommend using a saline nasal spray instead of a regular allopathic one. You may use paediatrics'nasoclear' saline nasal spray 2 to 3 times daily. Do ensure to clean up your nostrils with the saline spray before you go to bed in night. Use a humidifier in the night time and restrict using acs to the extent you can. Should you be taking any anti-histamines/ anti-allergic tab/ syp, that may also contribute to your dried mucous. So, you may stop the anti-allergic medications unless recommended for long term by your physician. Instead, you may take a glass of luke warm water to which a tsp of honey, a pinch of fresh turmeric and 1 - 2 nos of black pepper (crushed) is mixed thoroughly, post dinner at bed time. Cold foods, hot/ spicy drinks/ foods be best avoided. All the very best. Take care.

This indicates dry mouth, you need to make it hydrated as by taking the iron rich diet and good fresh fruits, salads, pulpy fruits, as by taking this will improve your local immunity in the mouth, this will protect you indirectly from getting infections repeatedly

Yes both are same, operation and surgery are same, if any disease which can not corrected by medications than surgical expulsion is must, this is the part which is mutilated and hence needs expulsion, as soon as this part is removed patient gets instant relief.

I am suffering from allergic sinus from past few years which leads to cold and cough. I need to take pills like Allegra M and montair 10 for remedy everyday throughout the year. Moreover my doctor suggested me to take influenza injection every six months to avoid sinus problem. I preferred taking pills instead of injection. Is it good taking pills throughout lifetime as a remedy for sinus or I should go for injection. Is there any other remedy for treatment of sinus problem.

In case of active nose bleed pinch your nostril and apply ice packs over it. Sit in a forward bending position and breathe through your mouth. Get a nasal endoscopy done to find out the cause of the bleeding.
