Offlate, I am snoring loudly during night sleep. How to reduce it? What leads to snoring?

PGFCP, PGDEMS, Bachelor Of Ayurvedic Medicine And Surgery
Ayurveda, Satara
Dear Lybrate user. This problem is due to increased mucous and decreased elasticity of the respiratory track. So follow few basic things so that you get better results in short period of time…. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) TAKE 30 ml of divya shawasari pravahi (PATANJALI AYURVEDA) along with 30 ml of lukewarm water after meals, early in the morning on empty stomach and at night before sleep. B) take 2 tablets of SWAS-KASA-CHINTAMANI RASA, early in the morning on empty stomach and at night before sleep. C) take 2-2 tablets of sutshekhar rasa and aarogyawardhini vati after meals. Do all these things for 30 days. This formulation of treatment is effective. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Please do gargles and brush your teeth twice a day to keep your throat clean. You may need tonsillectomy if the problem increases.

I don't think late sleeping has got anything to do with your throat problem. If it is the infection that is causing the pain then try with some antibiotics and gargles. And yes, neck pain might be a cause of high pillow (in case you r using it) or can be coz of awkward neck position while sleeping. You can have some muscle relaxant or pain killer if its too severe. If it doesn't improve consult a pmr doctor.

Suffering from Sinusitis? Can Surgery Be Helpful?

Suffering from Sinusitis? Can Surgery Be Helpful?

Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition which causes swelling of the tissue lining the sinus passages. The healthy sinisuses are filled with air, but when there is a blockage, they get filled with fluids which can give rise to germs and cause an infection. Conditions such as the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose) and a deviated septum (shift of the nasal cavity) can cause sinusitis. People with nasal polyps and blocked drainage ducts are more prone to getting sinusitis as compared to other people. The main treatment for sinusitis is surgery.

Sinusitis Surgery
Surgery is the most effective treatment for this condition as it makes the sinuses drain by getting rid of the blockage and draining out the mucus. Surgery also removes infected, swollen and damaged tissues in the sinus along with polyps present in the nose or the sinus. If any foreign substances are obstructing the nasal passage, they are removed as well. Surgery, sometimes, is the only way of getting rid of a nose which is badly blocked. In severe conditions, people might also require a second surgery. Surgery, when coupled with medication, is more effective in treating this condition as antibiotics might be required to prevent the sinus from getting re-infected.

There are two types of sinusitis surgeries people can avail:

  1. Endoscopic surgery: This surgery removes small bones and other foreign substances blocking the sinus passage or is used for removing polyps. A thin tool called the endoscope is inserted into the nose with the help of which, the doctor gets rid of substances which are blocking the sinus passage.
  2. Sinus surgery: This is carried out in conditions when there are developments like pus and infections in the facial bones or in case of a brain abscess (inflammation caused due to infection within the tissues of the brain). In this kind of surgery, the doctor uses the opening in the mouth or makes another one through the skin of the face to remove the blockage from the sinus and get rid of sinusitis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ent-specialist.

Permanent solution is the surgical removal of the tonsils if you are getting infection of the tonsils 7-8 times in full year of grade iv, if the symptoms are less than keep yourself hydrated with shakes juices, milk products like coffee and shakes, good chewing habits also make it better.

Your doctor is right. You have to use the nasal spray for a long period. It is absolutely safe and is even prescribed to pregnant and lactating mothers.

Dear Doc,My wife's ears continue to remain blocked after a flight last month. She has tried puffing and exhaling air, saline water gargles but no releif. Can you please suggest some decongestant/other medicine which can be of help.

She most probably has fluid behind the ear drum. She can take T. Relent o.D once at night time for a week. Also use Otrivin nose drops followed by steam inhalation twice a day. If the problem persists, see an ENT specialist.

Trouble in breathing while bending and lying down is not uncommon in heart disease. But such people get excessively breathless with walk, work or lifting weights. With symptoms of'chest hurt' and dizziness better to get heart and lungs examined.

Tinnex medicine really works in tinnitus & hearing loss too? Tinnex injection by Lincoln Pharmaceuticals Ltd claims that this treatment cured hearing loss in 3 patients in clinical trial. But there is very bad side effects. My ear doctor [ ent specialist] said me that it can cause blur vision but you can try low doses. Should I go for tinnex? Or homeopathy is good?

Tinnitus can be controlled by tinnitus habituation therapy (THT ). Medicines do not control tinnitus when used alone, it may be co prescribed with THT.

It is unlikely due to sinus issues having such feeling in the neck. For thyroid issues get TSH done. Since you can breathe easily and swallow well so nothing to worry. Still you can get a neck MRI scan done to rule out any swelling inside the neck.
