Hello sir, I am 36 years old man. My xray report says maxillary sinusitis and my ct scan says that minimal ethmoid sinusitis and my nasal septum is deviated. Which is correct. Im taking montelukast in night and drops for nose. I am continuously having dull pain and pressure in my cheek area. Kindly help to reduce my pain. I do not have problem to rake food, drink water and to speak. It hurts me. 2 or 3 doctors changed tablets but I do not have relief. How many days sinusitis pain will remain? Please help me.

Ct is the gold standard in diagnosis and as per your findings deviated septum is cause. Does pain increases in evening and how much stress you take for your work. These all symptoms contribute. You can send me details of ct scan and your symptoms for further management.

Had sex in 1st week of august. Periods came right on time around 26th of august and were normal. Took a urine test on 4th of September, which came negative for pregnancy. But I have been feeling dizzy ,light headed and fatigued all the time since last month. There is no feeling of nausea. Even consulted an ENT doctor for diagnosis ,but nothing came up. Also there is problem in digesting food and m passing gas after every meal. Should I get a blood test done for HCG or consult some other specialist?

As you had your regular normal period, you can completely rule out pregnancy. The light headedness, uneasiness etc. Could be due to Hyperacidity. As you are passing gasses, it indicates amoebic infection, which need to be treated along with medicines for indigestion and hyperacidity which will set right your discomfort. Fatigue could also be due to stress you are having due to the thought of pregnancy. If it gives any comfort, get the hcg test done which will be confirmatory regarding pregnancy or otherwise, which will give you peace of mind and the acidity etc. Will come down if your stress levels are low. But you definetely to take medicines course for amoebiasis and stop eating outside food, if you are forced to take outside food, take only hot stuff and avoid junk food. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user first of all ,you should know that it's very important to get your ear surgery done ,other wise it may get complicated, and infection can spread to brain which leads to serious complications. The cost of surgery depends upon grade of disease. Simple ear drum repair surgery charges 25, 000_30,000, whereas extensive surgery cost around 40,-45,000 per ear. Take care Regards.

I am having cough from last few days now its turned up in fever and running nose with a lot pain in my body muscles also there is a sore throat. Please advice me what should I do?

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine

Dear, It seems you have Viral upper respiratory tract infection. plz take Tab Solvin cold for fever. Avoid other analgesics. Take rest, take plenty of fluid. Get some investigation like CBC with kit test for malaria, RFT, LFT done. Start antibiotic like Zifi 200 twice daily and Azee 500 once daily to avoid superadded bacterial infection. If you belong to Delhi, Gujarat, Rajasthan or Madhya pradesh then you are swine flu suspect category B. so get investigated for the same too. Best wishes.

It's quite normal for voice to waver during emotions. Even then, it is always better to get a routine ENT check up done to rule out any problem which may be developing.

Sinus - 5 Ways It Can Affect Your Health!

Sinus - 5 Ways It Can Affect Your Health!

Any ailment can cause a breakdown of one's overall well-being due to the onslaught of related symptoms, and sinus problem is no different. Sinusitis refers to inflammation or swelling of the tissue that lines the sinus, which are passages filled with air and lie in the nasal tract. 

Sometimes, these passages get blocked with germs, fluid and other elements that can give rise to infections and allergic reactions. Here are the ways in which this condition can affect your health:

  1. Related ailments: One of the most common outcomes of sinus blockage is common cold, which can happen when the passages do not get proper movement of air. Further, it can also cause allergic rhinitis which is also known as hay fever and comes with its own set of symptoms like a runny nose, blocked nose and ears, watery eyes and other signs. A build-up of nasal polyps can also take place in the blocked path of the sinus, while the nasal cavity can also shift, causing a deviated septum
  2. Pain: We have many sinuses that are located in various parts of our head, including the areas above and below the eyes. As a part of the sinus attack, one may experience pain and fluid fullness in these areas. These regions can ache when there is a sinus infection. This pain can also be caused by the dull pressure exerted by inflammation, and the pain can then travel down to jaws, teeth and even between eyes. 
  3. Headaches: The constant pressure and persistent pain in the various areas containing the sinus can lead to long term headaches which will be at their worst in the mornings. This is due to the fact that the fluids have been accumulating throughout the night. These headaches can get worse if there is a change in the temperature. 
  4. Congestion: Congestion is also a common symptom of sinus infection. The swollen sinuses can lead to constrictions in the nasal passage, which can obstruct normal breathing. This will lead to congestion, which can also affect the senses of taste and smell. 
  5. Cough and discharge: A patient suffering from a sinus infection may end up blowing his or her nose more often than normal. This will usually happen because a yellowing greenish discharge will drain into the nasal passages on a regular basis during the infection. When this discharge bypasses the nasal tract and reaches the throat, it can also cause persistent coughing. It is best to ask for medical intervention and practice steaming to relive the painful symptoms of this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

Nose Bleeding - 3 Ways to Stop it

ENT Specialist, Delhi
Nose Bleeding - 3 Ways to Stop it

Nose bleeding happens because of presence of large amount of blood vessels in the nose and the reasons for nose bleeding are often nose picking, low levels of Vitamin K, cold and allergies and nose membrane getting dry along with so many other reasons. But there are ways with the help of which it can be prevented and stopped.
Let's first learn how it can be instantly stopped.

  1. Sit comfortably: When your nose starts bleeding, you should sit in a comfortable position. Do not stand or lie down because in these positions, blood may pass on to your  throat which could be harmful. Tilt your face forward and let a piece of cloth soak in all the blood.
  2. Hold the nose: During nose bleeding, one should hold and pinch the nose for at least 10 minutes continuously. If it still doesn't stop bleeding then hold it for 5-7 minutes more. Holding or pinching the nose is necessary because bleeding can stop if direct pressure is put on nose for a longer time.
  3. Apply ice: Applying ice can be a great way of instantly stopping nose bleeding. Ice usually compresses and tightens the blood vessels because of which bleeding stops. Ice should preferably be applied on cheeks and nose. Alternatively, you can keep the ice in your mouth also for short intervals.

Nose bleeding can be prevented by taking the following measures :

  1. Elevate the nose while resting. Take 2-3 pillows while sleeping.
  2. Do not blow or scratch your nose forcefully.
  3. Keep your blood pressure in control because it will help in preventing nose-bleeding to a great extent.
  4. Avoid smoking because it delays the healing process.
  5. Make sure the room you sleep in isn?t dry. Keep a check on humidity of your room.
  6. Need to take special care in winters because the nose membrane gets dry mostly in winters.
  7. Drink plenty of water and citrus food to keep your nose moist and avoid milk, wheat and fried food.
  8. Do not overuse cold and allergy medicines. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ENT-specialist.

I am suffering from sinusitis. Is it safe to administrate xylometazoline solution for a long period. Kindly reply.

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ahmedabad
It is definitely not advisable to use xylomatazoline for more than 3 to 5 days. It will definitely give excellent immediate relief for short period but it increases swelling inside nose and worsens sinusitis.

Sinus comes under which category of disease like it comes under ENT orOPTHALMOLOGY.

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
The Eyeballs and the eyelids are the domain of the Ophthalmologist. Rest of the Orbit and Paranasal Sinuses as well, as the Lachrymal sac are best treated by an ENT, Head & Neck Surgeon as access to this region are always through the nose which is our field of expertise. Our expertise with the slender glass rod or flexible endoscopes is much admired by even Neurosurgeons to give them access to the inferior aspects of the brain through the nasal passages without needing to damage any vital structures had they approached the same area using the conventional burr-hole into the cranial vault! A couple of my ENT Surgeon batchmates have also gone on to train in Neurosurgery having been preferred over the General Surgeon candidates by the interviewers for this very reason!
