Hi kindly get an impedance and a pure tone audiometry done will help to know if there is any fluid collection inside the ear. Also you can do steam inhalation twice a day for few days. Also can use nasal decongestant drops 2 drops three times a day for few days. Once you get those tests done share will help you further.

Hi if you have been suffering  from 6 years it's likely you have chronic sinusitis  which may also be allergic . Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT /Xray Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic sinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays . *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then your condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Chronic sinusitis is a condition  that develops due to persistent  infection or allergy in your sinuses. We need to improve the drainage of the sinus cavity by steam inhalation  .Medicines like Monteleukast with levocetirizine  help to decrease the tissue response to dust and allergy. They help in decreasing the inflammatory  changes due to allergic stimuli. Togerher with this the nasal sprays will help improve locally the Nasal  blockage. A disciplined medical therapy will help you live better. But incomplete treatment leads to polyps, Pansinusitus,complications  and poor quality of life. Investigations : CTPNS CBC with ESR &AEC PPBS FT3/FT4/TSH These tests will help us have an idea about your general immune status and check for any problems you may have. Treatment : Start Steam inhalation  (mandatory  )twice a day &Start have plenty of fruits and vegetables  in your diet. A course of vitamin B complex and C (no harm in continuing this if you can't have a balanced diet due to any reason) Add a probiotic supplement to your regular meals. Have sleep for atleast 7 to 8 hours. Exercise atleast for 30 minutes  every day. If you work in dusty environment   wear a mask. Air conditioned rooms the air filters should be ideally washed every week. The dust trappers in AC UNIT spread the germs very rapidly. If you are unable to ensure regular cleaning of AIR conditioners atleast try not to sit directly in front  of them. While working in the computer try to tilt  the screen to avoid glare .Take 5 min break every half an hour. Drink Plenty of water. Avoid smoking and secondary smoke. You can share your reports on Lybrate (no charge )as you get them done. Review with me after 10 days of Antibiotic and I will start you on long term medicines. Kindly also let me know any other medical  issues you may have. Kindly let me know about your workplace and living environment  (Air pollution level, general cleanliness. Then I can help you even more Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum CT PNS and nasal endoscopy+your symptoms helps us decide surgical course of treatment.

Reccurrent to chronic sinusitis is a resistant problem and requires a multidisciplinary approach following tips will be useful. Plain steam inhalation regularly once a day in morning. Avoid exposure to dust and allergens by covering your nose whenever required. Try jal neti at least twice a week it helps draining the sinuses, but first learn it from an yoga expert. Kapalbhati is beneficial. Take homeopathy medicine kali bichromicum 30 4 pills twice a day for a month and skookum chuk 30 4 pills twice a day for a month. Let me know the changes,

I've been in Uk for 10 years. My health deteriorated. I developed rhino sinusitis and hiatus hernia. I get lot of phlegm (mucus). I am coping with the problems but my main concern is bad breath which is present even after brushing. I brush 3 times a day and gargle mouth washes or salt water (warm). I think my bad breath comes from throat/stomach. The problem has been there for nearly 8 years. Please help. Thanks.

Hi doctors my whole body feel light. Mostly my head. And pounding heart. All my test is good. My throat pain as well....
You have GERD, which is the root cause of every problem. Eat a regular diet but no medicines. No heavy foods which are likely to come out of valve separating stomach from upper food pipe. No oils or heavy spices. Reduce weight by eating healthy semisolid nourishment and light exercise. Pounding heart is due to extra load on it due to extra body weight. No medicines and no tests needed now. Do get back here later after a month of diet and exercise.
