Dizziness can be due to generalised weakness, Cardiovascular, neurological or Ear-brain-balance problem. Any blood tests done like PPBS, Thyroid function  tests, complete haemogram. Any history of head injury or neurological  problem? Vertigo is a medical term which describes a sense of rotation even while stationary. It can often be confused with lightheadedness, generalised weakness, dizziness . Vertigo may be caused by problems in your peripheral (Ear &balance mechanism inside ear known as the vestibular system) or central nervous system. A complete checkup is required to isolate the cause. Peripheral vestibular  system causing vertigo symptoms may need initial medications to stabilise followed by Vestibular Rehabilitation  exercises. A good quality  of life can be achieved if properly managed. Basic investigations: A Pure tone audiometry  and tympanometry  can detect any problem in the ear nerves and tympanic membrane pressure (both of which can be abnormal in case of ear diseases) An Xray of the Cervical Spine (AP /Lat/Lat-oblique to check for cervical spondylitis CT brain and a complete  haemogram  are some of the baseline tests needed for a good evaluation  of vertigo. A cause of vertigo often difficult to diagnose is  BPPV Benign Paroxysmal  positional vertigo BPPV can be treated with Epleys manoeuvre  and Vestibular  Rehabilitation  exercises. With regular vestibular exercise you can be symptom free  and lead a normal life.

Meri wife ko aaj subah uthte hi nose (naak) se blooding ho rahi he
Iska kya reason ho sakta he or kese roka ja sakta he.
It's summer these days and dry air causes crusting in nose. We somehow do finger picking leading to injury over septum which causes epistaxis. Just pinch the nose with thumb and index finger. Keep head end elevated. Calm the pt and do cold sponging. Instill liquid paraffin in nose regularly to keep mucosa wet.

I am 26 year female and have sour throat. What should I do?

DUSM
Unani,
I am 26 year female and have sour throat. What should I do?
During changing weather, everyone needs to guard against common immunity related illnesses such as cold and flu. The best thing you can do is prevent them from taking a healthy diet. Try making a ginger tea with cloves to help treat a sore throat and cough. Salt water has been used as a gargle for centuries because it works so well: helps cleanse the throat of phlegm. Dissolve 2 teaspoon salt in 1 cup warm water and gargle three or four times daily. Honey has mild antibacterial. Stir 1.3 teaspoons into 1 cup warm water and gargle two or three times a day.

Does severe retraction pocket needs to be operated if patient can hear normally?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
It depends on otoscopic and audiometry findings. If hearing is normal and retraction pocket is there we can opt for wait and watch strategy with regular endoscopic followup.

My nose starts bleeding in both summers and winters. I have been consulting doctors since childhood but they do not have any cure and reason for the same. I have been taking vitamin c tablets but no avail. Hope you suggest me how to cure and the reason behind it.

In summer and winter the climate is dry and this may lead dried mucosa over septum and dried discharge of nose. Nasal trauma caused while removing this dried discharge can cause mucosal erosion and bleeding apply petroleum jelly or liquid paraffin or simple coconut oil only to inside 5mm of nose no drops though this may prevent bleeds.
