Yes both are same, operation and surgery are same, if any disease which can not corrected by medications than surgical expulsion is must, this is the part which is mutilated and hence needs expulsion, as soon as this part is removed patient gets instant relief.

My ear is numb from past 3 days, what should I do?
Hi If you have lost sensation over the ear it could be due to entrapment of the nerve at the spinal region or a neuropathy due to early diabetes or other similar conditions. A neurological evaluation is indicated.

I get tensed very quickly. Then headache starts. And I start feeling dizzy. What is the solution?

Hello lybrate user. You have not mentioned about the issues for which you get tensed easily. But in general at your age there is a lot of performance pressure and expectations which may build stress if not handled appropriately. You may need to work on some of your coping skills so as to deal with difficult situations. You may get in touch to learn a few. All the best.

It seems to be due to wax and as wax is removed by using ear drop so Consult ENT doctor and if wax can not removed by drop, a small procedure name syringing is required for removal of wax

Drink lots of fluids such as water and clear soups. Fluids help loosen mucus. Fluids are also important because they help prevent dehydration. Gargle with warm salt water a few times a day to relieve a sore throat. Throat sprays or lozenges may also help relieve the pain. Avoid alcohol.

Dear lybrate-user, This looks like some kind of Upper respiratory tract infection, and I think it not something to worry about. In case the symptoms are still persisting after you completed a course of antibiotics. Do consult a ENT specialist and get a Laryngoscopy test done. In case of suspicious lesion, the doctor might take a biopsy and we can confirm the diagnosis.

It is possible that you are having retracted ear drum due to blockage of the eustachian tube. Or there may be ear wax impaction or there may be fungal infection of your external ear. See an ent specialist to assess the real reason and get treated. Incidentally, too much use of head phones with loud pitch may damage your hearing apparatus, so use minimally and at lower volume.

How can I do to stop snoring What treatment helpful to stop snoring please describe you. Help me stop snoring and get a better sleep.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
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.

How old are you (25 years or 2 yrs)? bleeding from the nose is common in summer. One need not unduly worry about it. Pinch the nose for about 5 minutes. The bleeding should stop. If it does not then you need to consult an ent surgeon.
