Headache is one of the cause of headache since you need to know know about it, sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you.

You might have hypertrophied inferior turbinate on right nostril which contract and expand according to temperature. You may start nasal drops 3 drops 3 times daily for atleast 7 days. If medicines won't work you can go for turbinoplasty. A small procedure to reduce the size of turbinate.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Hello, homoeopathy has very good medicines for tinnitus problem. But for prescribing the exact medicine more symptoms of it are needed like which type of sounds in the ear i. E. Ringing, buzzing or whistles. Is it because of hardening of tympanic membrane or not. You can start with kali mur 6x, 5 tabs thrice daily. Mullein drops, 10 drops with water twice daily.

The best natural medicine for thyroid is coriander. Start drinking 10 grams coriander in 150 ml water and drink after boiling it for 15 minutes in morning empty stomach for 3 months regular. Make sure that you are walking 90 minutes every day. Drink four litres water every day but make sure not to drink water after your meals. Give a gap of 90 minutes.
