Nasal bleed is called epistaxis. Common causes are- Allergic rhinitis, exposure to dry air for long, sinusitis,blowing of nose, Trauma etc Treatment depends whether bleed is anterior or posterior. Make the perdon bend forwards and pinch nose for 5/10 minutes .usually bleeding stops. Anterior packing may be required. For posterior bleeds ,too packing is required by a doctor. For prevention, Use humidifiers, if dryness is excessive dryness-use saline nasal drops or vase line. Do not blow vigorously. Get checked by ENT doc to rule out other causes.

My age is 21. The flexible part (lowermost) of my nose bone has a curve towards right or my nose is not straight. I am not able to breathe efficiently from 1 nosestrill and to intake enough breathe while running. I face this problem while sleeping too. I can not breathe properly while facing right side. My facial expressions also become odd. Due to this I am more prone to cough and cold and it takes long to recover and situation become worse due to that. My both nosestrills get blocked. Please suggest me the best way to fix this. Is it necessary to go for the surgery or should I go for special exercise or medicines. I never consult anyone about this problem before.

Of course, the bleeding is because of the inhaling. The lining has been sufficiently damaged to cause a rupture in her nasal blood vessel. The pungent smell of whitener can not only erase print on paper, but also memory from the human brain. The toluene and trychloroethane help to intoxicate and apparently the addicts experience a kick for five to eight hours, depending on the intensity and quantity of the inhalation. According to the experts, the hydrocarbons in the deadly solvents can infuse easily with the blood and can affect the central nervous system of a person. Uncharacteristic behaviors such as mood swings and insomnia are some of the reported symptoms of solvent addiction and it may results in kidney, liver and lung damage. And what's more, just like drug addiction, at a point of unavailability of whiteners, the victims will move on to other intoxicant substances like mosquito repellents, thinners, nail polish removers etc. Which are equally, if not more, harmful. She needs to go for counseling and identify why she is resorting to this pleasure inducement and what pain she is covering up. If she is severely into it she may need detoxification and counseling at the same time. Some medication may be administered to ease the initial struggle but she could resolve it soon she resorts to other drugs or drinks to meet her obsessive-compulsive need for gratification.

Are a few things that could cause a fast heart rate when there's a good amount alcohol consumption: #1. Dehydration. Lowers blood volume so heart has to work faster to compensate #2. Ion imbalance could cause misfires on your heart. Probably as the result of dehydration as well. #3. Alcohol withdraw symptoms #4 low oxygen level (sleeping/passed out under a blanket or pillow) when the oxygen level gets dangerously low, the fight or flight response kicks up to boost the intake of oxygen and circulation. #5. Of course panic attack when you realize that your heart rate is above normal after waking up suddenly from your sleep (even when you have been passed out). Basically the panic attack is a result of the above symptoms. There are probably more reasons, but those few above were the big ones. Unless you have a serious heart problem and you are on heart medication, you shouldn't worry about the heart rate at all. Hopefully this is helpful for you guys out there.

Hello, I am venal 24years of age I have a problem of snoring and it's causing trouble Is it curable? What all measures I have to take to stop snoring? Please reply.

Ask Free Question
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.
