1. Avoid caffeine found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. Quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. [use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, tvs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

I am 34 yr old male. Left nasal passage feels blocked almost all the time. Lying on right side while sleeping gives immediate relief. Also, otrivin/ mucoris drops also provide temporary relief. Probe check did not reveal anything. Minor middle bone deviation which in ent' s opinion was not the cause. Problem was attributed to allergy leading to sinus inflammation. However, I doubt it as the problem is perennial in all conditions and has been so for many years. Request advice.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
It could be due to inflammation and edema of sinus mucosa due to allergy that further causes obstruction to the sinus drainage. Start tab. Allegra-m daily 1 at bed time and duonase nasal spray 2 puffs twice a day along with that steam inhalation twice a day for 2-3 weeks. Get a ct scan done to find out any underlying pathology.

She is likely to have a condition called" obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome" here the person never gets adequate sleep in the night as the sleep cycle gets distorted. Mostly found in obese people. They fall asleep frequently during daytime which disturbs their routine. Snoring is no longer a laughable matter. It has been found those afflicted with osas are likely to suffer from heart ailments. High bp etc. An overnight sleep test will be needed to record her sleep pattern. This will be best done by a chest physician. C- pap machine which created positive pressure on inspired air will help better oxygenation. Consult the chest physician. She will definitely improve.

I have headaches almost every evening for last 30 years owing to sinus problems. I take a sinarest tablet for temporary relief. Hiw to get rid of it?

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
You will need a thorough evaluation, including maybe a ct scan of the sinuses. A long standing headache of this kind is unlikely to be because of a sinus problem. Sinarest or any medicine for that matter is not safe over prolonged periods. It contains a decongestant which can elevate your blood pressure which by itself can cause a headache. Please consult an ent specialist and stop self medication immediately. Regards

Why milk affects sinusitis patient? Is there some remedy for this or I gotta quit milk.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Hello Waking up with a headache, and on top of it a blocked nose is a rough start to the day. If this becomes a routine occurrence and even the face hurts with general heaviness in the head, it’s a medical condition called Sinusitis. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull bone. These hollow spaces in the skull are situated in cheek bones, forehead, behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. Another set is situated in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. All the sinuses have the same lining that is present in the nose. This lining produces mucus, which is drained out of the sinuses through an opening in the nose. When a person has cold or allergy, swelling in the nose and sinuses can cause the drainage to get blocked. This results in the mucus being trapped in the sinuses, leading to the growth of bacteria and viruses. The inflammation of these sinuses is referred to as Sinusitis. The Homeopathic mode of treatment can completely cure Sinusitis, though it does take time. The Homeopathic remedies for sinus infections, are made of natural substances and have zero side effects, which rebuild the body’s immunity to Sinusitis. Symptoms of Sinusitis The symptoms of Sinusitis depend upon the sinus that gets affected. The symptoms include morning headache, blocked sensation in the nose, and heaviness and pain in the facial bones. Inflammation in the sinuses behind the bridge of the nose and in between the eyes can lead to swelling in the eyelids and the tissues around the eyes. Inflammation in the maxillary sinuses can result in pain in the upper jaw and teeth. Symptoms of severe sinus infection may be accompanied by nasal congestion, running nose, fever, tiredness and cough that may aggravate at night. Post-nasal dripping of mucus can cause problems in the throat too. Homoeopathy for sinus problems:- Homeopathic medicines can be of great help in the treatment of Sinusitis. The natural Homeopathic mode of treatment aims at rebuilding the body’s immunity to Sinusitis. The Homeopathic treatment for sinusitis can completely cure the chronicity and recurrence of Sinusitis, though it may take some time. I dont think milk has any adverse effects on sinus problems. Thanks Any queries pls ask

I am 25years aged female. My head shakes these days. How I can come out of this problem?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Spinning and shakes are usually related to veritgo and it might be a cervical also. Advise you to take cinnarizine 25 mg twice a day for 5 days. Pls mention if there is any other problem. I also find your history to be improper.

First of all stop using nasivion drops bcz on prolonged use this causes nose blockage for what it is used. Instead of that start ezicas-f nasal spray 2 puffs twice a day and steam inhalation twice a day. Get a ct scan done and send the report.

I am suffering from depression for the last 15 years. I was undergoing treatment in our hospital. After coming to kerala I am under the treatment of doctor from pushpagiri medical college, tiruvalla, kerala. Here they have changed the medicine and I am suffering from side effect of the medicine like dry mouth, throat infection, digestion problem etc.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
In treatment of depression what got you better keeps you better, if an antidepressant helped you to recover from depression it is advisable not to change the antidepressant. So go back to your new psychiatrist and tell him your problem they should be able to solve it.
