I have a problem in swallowing. Whenever I eat something it hurts (kind of burns) as it goes through oesophagus from tonsils to stomach. Also I feel almost everything more spicy than it is. What problem do I have and what's the solution for that?

Yes. Nidaanparivarjan is the best option which means avoid the cause. If that's not possible, you can manage with medicine. Start gargles with curcumin powder and salt with warm water. Then use of throat cleansers like sitopaladi and vyoshadi having pomegranates skin have a role go play effectively.

I have sinusitis and few months back developed a polyp in my right nostril. I have read a lot about polyps and sinus and I concluded there has to be something that's triggering my problem. Would it be wise to consult an allergist? I have been to many doctors (not an allergist yet) but all of them suggest surgery.

Nasal polyp mostly requires surgery. Pathology causing polyp usually decides about further management. If you are having nasal allergies symptoms like lot of sneezing and itching then you may consider visiting an allergy expert.

Hi . Since you have a regular straining of voice, I would advise you. 1. Bhramari pranayama 2. Intermittent rest to voice 3. Avoid high pitch and loud singing initially. 4. Strengthen your immunity and coping ability with homeopathy.

I have two tonsils like nodes on the both side of neck. When I woke up in morning I got sore throat for only 3 to 4 hours which heals by itself everyday. I have reddish skin inside my mouth. Those nodes just like pea in size. There is no pain. I have little bit of cough also. Does these nodes are tonsils.

Hello it seems that there is a chronic infection in your throat. And most likely due to nasal blockage. Or deviated nasal septum. That causes improper air entry to lungs. This inadequate air entry is a focus for infection. You should go for a x ray of nose and paranasal sinuses. Take steam inhalation daily for 15 minutes take vitamines. Fruit juices. You should take good care of your teeth also. Any focus of infection in a tooth. Such as carries. Is a potential source of chr. Infection of throat. So. Brush your teeth twice .always wash mouth after eating any food .avoid chocolete. Icecreme.

It is important to find out the cause for giddiness. At this age it is not normal. Go for the following tests and get back to me with the results. 1. Cbc - a blood test. This will help us find your hemoglobin levels, because low hb is a common cause for giddiness among youngsters 2. Ear check - chronic ear infections can cause giddiness, visit a ent to rule out the same 3. Eye check - a un diagnosed eye power can be a cause too. For now follow these tips 1. Soak 8 to 10 raisins in a cup of water overnight and consume it the next day in empty stomach. This is a excellent remedy for giddiness. 2. Take 4 tsp of warm coconut oil. Apply to your feet and massage gently for five minutes at bedtime. Do this daily to get a good nights sleep. 3. Avoid looking at bright screens like phones, tabs, laptop etc half an hour before bedtime. Read a book instead. You will definitely sleep well 4. Deep breathing - 10 rounds three times a day will cure both sleeplessness and dizziness.

Meniere's Disease - Know The Stages!

ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
Meniere's Disease -  Know The Stages!

What Causes Meniere’s Disease?
Meniere's Disease is a disorder that basically affects the sense of balance and hearing of the patient. This condition takes place in the inner ear and it may cause problems like vertigo, where patients experience a spinning sensation and a ringing sound as well. This is a chronic disorder, which requires a number of lifestyle changes so that it can be managed and treated without becoming a debilitating problem.

Read on to know more about the symptoms and causes of the condition.

Symptoms: The various signs and symptoms of this disease include a feeling of fullness in the ear, which has been affected by the condition. Also, most patients have a spinning sensation and a ringing sound in the affected ear. Nausea and vomiting may also be caused by this condition, along with sweating and loss of balance. It is also normal to feel uncoordinated when you are suffering from this condition.

Secondary Symptoms: This condition may also cause many other complications, which are known as secondary symptoms. These include anxiety, depression and stress. This usually happens due to the problems in the ear and even the problem of vertigo. This may cause problems for people who climb heights or ladders for their work or even for other recreational causes. The constant sense of dizziness and spinning may cause a person to become anxious and undertake stress when it comes to carrying out various kinds of functions in day to day living.

Causes: There are various causes of this condition, even though many medical reports suggest that the exact cause has not really been understood so far. As any doctor will tell you, the in the inner ear there is a labyrinth which contains fluids. When there is a problem with the composition and level of these fluids, the patient may develop Meniere’s Disease. This condition specifically affects the inner part of the ear. This part is made up of passages and a cavity as well as soft membrane like structures with hair like sensors. These sensors respond to the fluid’s movement within the ear. When this fluid does not have the appropriate levels, it can lead to many complications like Meniere’s Disease, which affect the nerve impulse that these sensors catch and transmit to the brain.

Stages: This disease progresses over a set of three stages. In the very first stage, the patient will experience much dizziness and nausea, before that progresses to the second stage. In this stage, the patient will have moderate to severe vertigo. This is also known as the middle stage. Finally, this may culminate into the third or late stage, which leads to more frequent episodes of vertigo. The hearing of the patient and the ringing sound in the ears will also get worse in this stage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

My husband did cataract operation and the sound of the machine during operation has made him nervous. He cannot stand noise. He has to do the other eye cataract operation too urgently but since he is so sensitive to noise will be able to do it without getting panicky on the operation table? Is there an alternative to surgery.

You can go for Cataract operation by machines which produce very less noise under mild sedation to calm down his anxiety for that short duration only.
