I m suffering from sinusitis for which I m taking Shadbindu tail 3 drops twice daily in each nostril. My doctor suggested me to take Pathyadi Kwath and Shirshoolhar Vati for forehead and facial pain. I m having relief with the medicine. But many times I m feeling that I have lost concentration, presence of mind and coolness of brain. Kindly suggest to restore cool, calm and better memory. I need treatment in Ayurveda.

Please note that for the said reason you need to give your LMP - last menstruating period/date based on which one can suggest anything. Mere feeling of dizziness does not necessarily indicate you are pregnant. It may be due to low glucose level in blood/low blood pressure/low HB%,etc

Pls see an ENT doctor. Blunt injuries to throat without voice change can happen but nonetheless are does not mean all is fine. A quick endoscopy will tell that there is no Hematoma (blood in the lower part of throat: Hypopharynx).

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.

Throat problem can happen due to weather changes, exposure to cold air or rain and certain sour food. 1. Mix some salt in warm water and do gargling. 2. Keep a clove and slowly chew it. 3. Drinking water frequently will reduce congestion if any. 4. Avoid fried and oily foods.

Deep breathing, meditation should be started regularly. Eyes exercises, eye wash with triphala strain, seeing green grass / greenery regularly after exercise should be made a regular feature. Brahmi and shankhpushpi sharbat should be your preferred drink in summers.

Hello lybrate-user allergy does lead to sinusitis problems which inturn leads to throat irritation and cough it's a vicious circle. So simple measures like steam inhalation twice a day for a week does help and salt warm water gargling will take care of throat issues avoid curds sour foods for a while. Further for allergy got to take anti allergy medications.

Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: • Headaches • Difficulty Concentrating • Irritability • Burning Sensation • Watery Eyes • Dry Eyes • Photophobia • Eye Pain 1. The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds. You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages. If you work on a computer, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration.Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally.If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) 3 times daily.

In maximum number of case, tonsillitis is the most common cause of pharyngitis, as you said its been since last 1.5 years, if its due to infected tonsills you should go for tonsillectomy, and avoid junk food, cold drinks, spicy food.
