I am facing problems for eating and talking.It is by chronic sore throat or cankar sore. Pain is at the end of tounge.Very much red portion also present there.

If the general line of treatment has not helped you so far, think of understanding the emotions which gives rise to this issues. Metaphysical reason behind the sore throat is withheld communication and need to enhance the self-confidence as the throat area is governed by a powerful energy centre called Vishuddhi Chakra. Once you work on this chakra, probably your throat will clear up. Of course, show it to your physician and rule out a possibility of pathological conditions affecting your throat.

1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5.

I am having snoring problem. I have consulted an ENT specialist he has tested me which include sme blood test n x ray and said everything is normal. But my friend's and relatives complain that I am snoring alot and they are unable to bear the sound it seems. I a feeling very low please suggest any remedy and treatment for my problem.

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.

Inability to speak after 4 years is not usually due to tongue problems. If your child speaks but if speech is slurring then consult a ent or paediatric surgeon. If your child can't speak and can't produce sentences then get hearing evaluation first.

Feeling itching and fluids coming from ears while using ear phone? Is Cleaning the ear is a solution?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Feeling itching and fluids coming from ears while using ear phone? Is Cleaning the ear is a solution?
Using ear phone for 1 hour will increase the bacteria in the ears for nearly 700 times and this ear phone will also raise the moisture in the ears and hence leads to itching and allergy in the ears, self cleaning the ears is not recommended et al becoz this leads to further trauma to ears, as those who clean the ears themselves only those have to go to ear surgeons.

By sinus you mean, running nose, sneezing and nasal block, then its allergic rhinitis, which can cause headach. Get skin prick test to know allergy.

I have been having throat pain for 3 days. What should I do?
are you currently taking any medication? do prevent a sore throat infection, a sore throat (pharyngitis) is normally a symptom of a bacterial or viral infection, such as the common cold. In around a third of cases, no cause for the sore throat can be found. If you have a sore throat, you may also have: swollen tonsils (tonsillitis), enlarged and tender glands in your neck, discomfort when swallowing, I am a general physician who will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan for your case, do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello I am 30 year women and I suffer red vertigo problem last 3 year doctor have done many test but not actual problem found now I ate signoflam or stemetil but no relief for giddiness what will I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following for your condition: One particular type of chronic dizziness not related to vertigo (a feeling of turning or whirling usually associated with inner ear problems) -- “Patients with this syndrome have chronic nonspecific dizziness, subjective imbalance and hypersensitivity to motion stimuli, which are exacerbated in complex visual environments (e. G. Walking in a busy store, driving in the rain),”. Anxiety can also cause chronic dizziness Treatment: Deep breathing is one of the best ways to deal with dizziness. It will help provide an adequate amount of oxygen to the brain, which in turn will relax the nervous system and reduce dizziness. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position. Place one hand on your abdomen, place the thumb of your other hand against one nostril and close your mouth. Inhale slowly through your open nostril and try to fill your belly with air. Hold the breath in, close both nostrils and purse your lips. After 2 to 3 seconds, exhale slowly and try to extract air from your belly. Repeat these steps 10 times. Then, sit quietly for 5 minutes and breathe normally to avoid getting dizzy again. For further steps get back to me. Thanks.

Pain at backside of head is generally due to problem in cervical spine (spine of neck). 1. Intervertebral disc prolapse in cervical spine. 2. Neck muscle strain. 3. Occipital neuralgia: entrapment of nerves at back of head. Diagnosis can be made by detailed symptoms of patient and examination findings. Mri cervical spine may be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Follow these tips to get relief; 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen round the clock for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply warm water bag on neck if you find it soothing. 3. Do neck stretching exercises after pain is relieved. 4. Maintain good posture during work or reading to relieve neck strain. Avoid reading or computer work with neck bent. Keep text books at eye level. 5. Consult a pain specialist to get relief from severe pain with injection known as occipital nerve block at back of head. If problem is persistent you need to consult again.

I am 24 year old. I have stiff neck and stiff ears and when I rotate my neck it pains on back side. And always feeling of cough and always dry mouth and throat. Eyes also having pain.

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
The stiff neck could be because of a cervical problem, and an orhopaedic surgeon could help. For the problems related to the dry mouth and throat, learn to gargle regularly with saline as well take a good steam inhalation at night - this could help you. Regards.
