Sir, you need to be examined for proper advice. You have not written bp reading properly. Your last line is not clear. Have you taken typhoid vaccine. Use boiled cooled water for drinking. Wash hands before eating. Take fruits and vegetables. Get back to me for further instructions.

I'am 25 year old, usually not take proper diet. Didn't had any health issue in past but last month I was having some chest pain in my chest while deep breath, cough, sneeze etc. As per my doctor i'am suffering form tuberculosis pleural effusion. He confirmed this by analysing x-ray and pleural fluid (approx 1litr fluid was collected from my chest) in which my A.D.A level was 83U/L. He prescribed me to take 4 akurit4 tablets (containing front line drug to cure tb) with empty stomach, to be taken before at least 2 hours from having breakfast. After 1 month of starting medicine course I did an ultrasound in which it is found that there is still 560 ml fluid present in my chest which will drain automatically as per doctor. Although i'am not having any serious pain but I have some query's in which I want expert opinions and my query's are -: 1: Is tuberculosis pleural effusion is communicable disease, should I need to stay away from my family and friends if so than for how much time? 2: Is it enough to conclude that someone is suffering from tuberculosis pleural effusion by only seeing x-ray and testing pleural fluid (by checking ADA level). 3: The drug i'am currently taking is good enough to treat this disease? 4: How much will it take to drain this fluid (560 ml) naturally? 5: Should I need do some test to confirm which tuberculosis is this, whether it is normal or mdr or any other before any further treatment? If there is any suggestion or prescription by your side please feel free to share. Please help me by answering the above query's if you can. I will be thankful for your kindness. Eagerly waiting for reply Thanks in advance.

TB is a communicable disease can spread to persons in close contact yes you should stay away from close contact of your family and friends till your cultures are negative. Yes composition of plueral effesion can be suggestive of tb, X ray is also very sensitive to rule out tuberculosis. Yes drugs are good enuogh follow the advise of your pulmonologist 300-500 ml fluid is mild collection of fluid it will absorb automatically in few months. Sputum culture ansd sensitivity ,sputum for afb ,TB gold should be done My suggestion is make a pdf file of all your invesstigation take pictures of all xrays, medicines you are on and get a full review ,we can not treat a serious problem just by making assumptions. IF you can not then follow advise of your respiratory medicine doctor take the full couse of medicine, TB will take months to settle down.

The treatment prescribed is correct, please follow the drug regime. Some patients require therapy for longer duration, if you are stable with medications do not stop them abruptly. Speak to your psychiatrist about the course of the disorder.

Pulmonary Embolism - Know How Can It Be Diagnosed!

Pulmonary Embolism - Know How Can It Be Diagnosed!

When blood clot blocks one or more arteries in your lungs the condition is known as pulmonary embolism. It can cause a decrease in the oxygen levels in your blood, damage to your lungs due to sudden restrictions in the flow of blood along with adverse effects on other parts of your body. Life threatening blockage can cause death if left untreated and you should immediately contact your health care provider to get proper diagnosis. Pulmonary embolism requires various lab tests and generally requires short time to resolve.

Symptoms: The symptoms of pulmonary embolism mainly depend upon many factors pertaining to your previous medical history. Pulmonary embolism varies with the size of your lungs, the size of the clots formed in your blood, and any other underlying history of the heart or lungs. That said, pulmonary embolism has symptoms which are not similar to any two persons and will vary accordingly.

The common symptoms however may include the following and you are advised to opt for a health checkup if these are persistent in your body:

  1. Cough along with bloody sputum is a common symptom.
  2. Shortness of breath, which will become worse as the days passes by. They will appear suddenly and cause huge discomfort in breathing.
  3. Chest pain which may give you the feeling of a heart attack. The pain will intensify when you sit to eat or cough. Deep breath will cause problems too and will not go away easily with exertion.
  4. Some other symptoms include fever, excess sweat, irregular heartbeat and dizziness.

Pulmonary embolism can be diagnosed by the following methods:

  1. Electrocardiography (also known popularly as ECG) to measure your heart's electrical activity and functioning.
  2. CT plumonary angiography is gold standard for diagnosing pulmonary embolism.
  3. Chest x ray, which is a common and non invasive test to check your heart and lungs as well as the problems with any bones surrounding them.
  4. ECHO can detect secondary changes in heart due to pulmonary embolism.

Pulmonary embolism usually requires treatment for 3 to 6 months but in some cases may require life long treatment.

Treatment of pulmonary embolism can be done with medicines if it is detected at an early stage or also if the clot is small. However, if the size of your clot is problematic and blocks the blood flow to your lungs or heart then surgery may be necessary. Open surgery and clot removal surgery are common in the treatment of pulmonary embolism and will require good regular follow up check ups. Regular leg exercises will also reduce the chances of any underlying disease and you should hence consult your doctor. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
