If its associated with costipation, heartburn, eructation or flatulence then most likely the cause is acidity. Otherwise you may think of cramp. Advice to increase the water intake first. It will take care of both the causes.

I have a habit of snoring in sleep even when I sleep on sides as also Please help me to solve the issue.

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.

I am suffering from allergic sinus from past few years which leads to cold and cough. I need to take pills like Allegra M and montair 10 for remedy everyday throughout the year. Moreover my doctor suggested me to take influenza injection every six months to avoid sinus problem. I preferred taking pills instead of injection. Is it good taking pills throughout lifetime as a remedy for sinus or I should go for injection. Is there any other remedy for treatment of sinus problem.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Vijayawada
yes, avoid cold+allergens forever,+clean&healthy habits, in attack use lmontus-ab 1 at night+betamethasone 4 1 at night+ meotop nasal spray in mornings for 15 days, avoid infections every 6 months. influenza vaccine gives long term immunity.OK.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.

You are probably having allergic rhino-sinusitis- use antihistaminis such as cetrizine (10mg) at night only for few days. And show to an ent specialist ie. Take my consultation.

I am having sneezing problem during waking up and after taking bath. I sneezes for about 8 to 10 times. How to cure this?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Possibly you have allergic rhinitis. Check with ent. If it is allergic rhinitis without any associated problem, may use (1) fluticasone nasal spray - 1 puff in each nostril twice daily for at least 3 months. Then you need to tail off. (2) cetirizine 10 mg - 1 tab daily at 8 pm or after coming back home in the evening for about 10 days then 5 mg daily for another 10 days then stop.

It looks to be because of acid reflux disease- acid from stomach coming into throat. You will have to avoid sleeping immediately after meals, eating spicy and fried food and eating small meals instead of large ones. You will have to take medicines for reducing your acidity on advice of doctor. If possible get a gastroscopy done to confirm it.

Should sub-total eardrum perforation with dry ears, csom safe and I miss hearing 1-2 words in a sentence or misunderstand a word or two sometimes and mild tinnitus mostly at night should be fixed?

Although its not an emergency if hearing is ok but yes subtotal perforation perforation should be repaired bcz subtotal means a large perforation. Later on you can have worsening of hearing also.

First you need to understand your body composition. Based on your queries, it seems the kapha constituent is dominant in your body. So, first of all avoid all kinds of cold foods and drinks, citrus foods, milk and milk products for some days and let me know.

My wife have bleeding problem in nose once or twice in every year from last 3 years. What is the problem and what is treatment.

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi. Bleeding from the nose, both in children and young adults is due to nose picking. Although in elderly its mainly because of hypertension. Sometimes even vigorous rubbing of nose could cause nasal bleed. As an emergency, you could pinch the nose for five minutes while you breath through the nose and that should stop nasal bleed.

I am 38 years old in pharma sector from last few years problem of sinus. Sinuses always blocked, re-occurrence of their infection and cough antibiotic almost tried. Ct shos DNS. please suggest also now migraine is one of them.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
If ct is confirming sinusitis I suggest to try intra nasal steroids for few months and if not responding then you can go for surgery but before trying any if above better start treatment for migraine. Because many times its the disease confused for sinus headache.
