I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.

I have acute bronchitis and I live in Bangalore. Even when I sit indoors in AC in office, I tend to get very dry throat which leads to excessive coughing with some sputum (white). Can somebody explain why air conditioned environment leads to this tickling effect when there is no dust or pollen inside?

BHMS, Certified in Aesthetic Skin Treatments, Certified in Applied Behaviour Analysis
Homeopath, Mumbai
Air-conditioning can dry out your sinuses and nasal passage, leading to inflammation. Air conditioners as a part of the cooling process, actually does draw humidity out of the air, This is not its primary function, of course, but that does little to change the fact that dehumidification is an inherent part of the cooling cycle. Because of this, you risk drying out the air excessively when you are running your air conditioner nonstop. Hope this answers your query. Your feedback matters. Take care.

I have severe sinus issues and in winters I get breathing issues. I did CT scan and PNS for that on which the doctors told me to go for operation. Is there any other remedy for that? Will the operation be able to cure sinus completely?

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hi lybrate-user, Soft growths arising from mucous membrane of nose or paranasal sinus are referred as nasal polyps. They are painless and non cancerous growths. There is no specific cause leading to nasal polyps. However, certain factors including nasal allergies, nasal infections and chronic nasal catarrh are linked with formation of nasal polyps. Nasal polyps lead to symptoms of stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell and headaches Also if this is a seasonal allergy and sinus issue, you can go for Homeopathy. The most common treatment option suggested by conventional system in nasal polyps is surgical removal; But surgery offers a  temporary relief  in many cases. This is so because surgery is just excising the polyps and not taking care of the body’s tendency to form polyps. In most cases, Nasal polyps reappear after surgery. Homeopathy offers effective, natural and alternative treatment for nasal polyps. Homeopathic medicines promise a permanent cure in nasal polyps by treating the root cause.  Homeopathic medicines cure nasal polyps in a safe and gentle manner.

I'm 18 years old. I'm suffering from sinusitis from last 4 years. What should I do now?

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi If you are  having a sinus  problems for so long we have to rule out Allergic  Rhinitis and sinusitis. Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT. 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 patients  condition is reviewed. Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. If polyps ate present and medical management doesn't cure Endoscopic surgery may be needed Hope this helps.

Hello lybrate-user you can do warm salt water gargling for throat pain. Lozenges of tusq chewable will help to reduce cough. Avoid curds and buttermilk for few days. Paracetamol for pain can be taken. If still persists after 4 days than do consult.

Can tuberculosis of the lymph node (supraclavicular involved) can spread to lungs as well? Also my chest x-ray indicates normal condition of the lungs. But tb of lymph nodes as I've read indicates its infection primarily somewhere else (lungs, pancreas, spleen). Does it mean that pancreas or spleen may be involved?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Tb lymph node may occur solely in the lymph node or it may occur with primary focus somewhere else like in lung. If you have supraclavicular lymph node tb, then it is better to exclude any lung focus by a hrct thorax.
