It is nothing to do with asthma. May be sudden fall of bp due to sudden standing after a long sitting. Do leg exercise before standing and just after standing. Drink lot of water.

I am 24 years old man. I have a slight fever, tunning nose, cough. What should I do?
Several things can be done to prevent cold: -Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. -Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/milk). Avoid fatty foods or drinks with caffeine -Treatment: A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat.Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

M.D - Respiratory medicine
Pulmonologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user best medications are by inhaler since they're in minute microgram doses. How long and how much is best determined by a pulmonologists after methodical assessment by clinical, x-ray and spirometry. Two types are ideally used bythe international guidelines. One which controls the disease in long term while the other relieves the symptom. Medicines that control are very important and symptom reliever is required only when symptoms severe. Combination inhalers contain both. Most patients think they are habit forming which is incorrect. Chronic asthma impairs our lifestyle and efficiency at work. Control and prevent asthma should be the goal. Very few side effects such as tremor of hands, and fast heart rate happen when taken in higher doses or in tablet or syrup or injection.

As you mentioned you are having ibs and fatty liver you must concentrate on the diet first beacause these disease are chronic and easily gets relapsed with inappropriate diet. Along with that you are using inhaler for asthama. All these symptoms are related to kapha dushti and angimandya acc. To ayurveda in short. For now you can take tab. Arogyavardhini vati 2 tabs twice a day before 15 min. Of food tab. Praval panchamrita 2 tabs twice a day. You must undergo the panchakarma therapy for relief from these situations. Visit an ayurvedic physician near you. For diet avoid spicy food, bakery products, milk (specifically at night time, milk products, curd, and other heavy food products. You can take only freshly made buttermilk at food time.

First try to understand Asthma. Asthma is the hyper-responsiveness of the respiratory tubes to some allergen. Please note that I mentioned the word "Hyper-Resposiveness" and not responsiveness. If somebody sneezes/coughs on inhalation of smoke then its responsiveness as your body is trying to protect you but if somebody developes suffocation or choking because on the inhalation of same smoke the its Hyper-responsiveness where your body is trying to overprotect you. Asthma is this tendency. By medicines and Clean air we can protect you- but its very hard to say if we can completely stop this tendency. People who move to regions with cleaner air- get rid of asthma - atleast that is one way to get a cure !!! Recurrence of attacks of asthma may be due to some underlying uncured infection or recent persistent exposure to unclean air. Please do involve yourself in cleaning activities which cause increased inhalation of dust particles !

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? Iheard that using it for years might cause boneshrinkage. Is it true?

PGP In Diabetologist, Fellowship in non-invasive Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Yes, steroids can cause demineralization of the bones, a condition known as osteoporosis. Though inhaled steroids are much safer; but long term use can lead to the same. Vitamin d and calcium levels should be monitored and bone mineral density (noninvasive) scan can be performed. Revert back with reports asap.
