I am 31 years old male. I have snoring problem and I am suffering since 3 yrs. I had already consult doctor, they tested me and said that I have only snoring problem in nose and nothing another problem. So they didn't treat it is not serious. Please tell me a solution. Regards Pradeep.

Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

Hi lybrate-user anxiety is typical to treat. Never jump on conclusion, nose bleed can as not be common in various illness. Cancer symptoms are depends upon the age, addiction, cancer causing habitat, family history site, type, grade, involvement, it may show, fever/bleeding from site/watery discharge /pain/tenderness/swelling/normal or abnormal growth/bony pain/local pain/ local lymph node swelling etc etc. But it should conform by doctors and by required examinations only.

If your father is having left vocal cord paralysis, investigations should be done to know the cause. If no cause is found ( idiopathic) one can hope for recovery with voice therapy within 1 to 3 months. Oral steroids may be tried.

How Ear Problems Can Cause Dizziness

How Ear Problems Can Cause Dizziness

Dizziness or vertigo is a feeling of being off centre, which makes a patient feel like there is lack of balance. This is especially apparent when one is at a height or while wearing footwear with high heels. It may be caused due to a variety of causes, and ear problems are one of the primary causes of this kind of dizziness.

Let us take a look at the various ear problems and how they can cause dizziness or vertigo:

  1. Infection: The bacteria or virus that causes cold and loose motions can also cause an ear infection. This can give rise to temporary vertigo which may last up to six weeks or more. Dizziness or vertigo happens in such cases because the viral effect spreads to the inner ear which causes a ringing and off balance sensation. The general physician or ENT specialist will usually prescribe a round of medicines only if the condition becomes too severe to handle.
  2. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: This kind of dizziness is also known as BPPV and may be caused due to the motion of a calcium particle known as otolith, in the ear. This can cause a fluttering movement that gives the sensation of falling down or losing balance. This usually takes place in the part of the ear that catches the sensation of gravity. The movement of the otolith can make the patient feel as if his or her head is turning or swaying, while in reality the patient may be stationery. This problem can be fixed with the help of a two minute therapy known as Epley Manoeuvre, which can be conducted easily in the ENT specialist's clinic.
  3. Meniere's Disease: There is actually a specific condition that is characterised primarily by dizzy spells and vertigo. The other symptoms of this ear bone condition include ringing of the ears, loss of hearing, and the feeling of fullness or pressure build up in the ears. This can be fixed with therapy and drugs as well as hearing loss aids.
  4. Dandy's Syndrome: This is an ear condition where the patient constantly feels like he or she is bouncing up and down. This condition hits patients who are on antibiotic medication for any kind of infection, and it subsides once the medication is done with. It occurs in such cases because certain kinds of antibiotics may be toxic for the ear. One may also see natural improvement in the condition over the passage of time.
  5. Tumours: Other reasons like tumours and strokes can also cause vertigo on a temporary or permanent basis.

Dizziness due to ear problems can be due to a number of mild to severe reasons. It is best to get these causes checked.

Stop using otrivin drops bcz on prolonged use it causes rebound process called rhinitis medicamentosa (persistent nasal obstruction as a side effect of drug). Start tab. Allegra daily at bed time and ezicas-f nasal spray 2 puffs twice a day for 2 weeks.

It is better if you can consult a nearby ent specialist for otoscopy as ear ache can be a symptom of a spectrum of ear conditions like earwax, otitis externa, otomycosis, aom etc with completely different treatments.

Hello lybrate-user! Saans to dono naak se hi liya jaata hai Anil ji. Agar aapka ek naak band hai to iske kayi kaaran ho sakte hain. Appko iska kaaran jann ne ke liye apne aap ko kisi Doctor se paramarsh lena chahiye aur ho sake to examination bhi karana chahiye. All the best!
