My wife had cold and then she recovered but now her right ear has blocked. Any suggestions?
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures..Also, the body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or more may be dangerous and demand immediate treatment The following medications may be used at home for mild fever : -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used in children during a viral illness. -Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes and donot overdress. Overdressing can cause the temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -Fever can cause dehydration.Drink plenty of fluids.Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water especially before meals, or after returning from a public places or using public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Causes And Treatment Of Vertigo!

Causes And Treatment Of Vertigo!

Vertigo is a medical condition where the affected person feels that the world or surrounding environment is spinning or moving. It is accompanied with nausea, vomiting, sweating and having problems in walking steadily. Moving your head worsens this condition. An illusion of movement is observed.

Vertigo arises from several conditions. There are mainly two types of Vertigo:

Peripheral Vertigo: This is the most common vertigo and is caused often due to a problem in the balance mechanism of the inner ear. The causes include:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: Being one of the common causes of vertigo, BPPV occurs due to certain head movements when standing up or bending over. The attacks are short, powerful and recurrent in nature. Nausea is also accompanied. A feeling of lightheadedness and despaired balance is observed after the attack. Fragments of calcium carbonate crystals are broken off from the channel linings present in the inner ear. These fragments cause the problem by getting into the ear fluid canals, and certain  head movement sweeps them across the canal causing vertigo.
  • Head Injury: Vertigo develops due to head injuries, and the symptoms are similar to that of dizziness.
  • Labyrinthitis: It is an infection in the inner ear, which causes the labyrinth of the ear to get inflamed. The labyrinth controls our hearing and balance. An inflammation causes it to send different information than the other, normal ear. This conflict causes vertigo. Such vertigo can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, loss of hearing and ear pain.
  • Vestibular Neuronitis: This is a condition pertaining to the inner ear, which causes inflammation of the nerve which connects the labyrinth to the brain.  The condition arises from viral infections. Nausea and vomiting are observed, and this condition leads to vertigo.
  • Meniere's DiseaseThis rare condition in the inner ear causes severe vertigo along with hearing loss and aural fullness. Meniere's disease prompts sudden vertigo attacks with nausea and vomiting.

Central Vertigo: Central vertigo arises from problems in the cerebellum of the brain and brainstem. Causes include:

  • Migraines
  • Sclerosis, a condition which affects the central nervous system
  • Acoustic neuroma, a type of brain cancer growing on the acoustic nerve
  • Brain tumors, stroke or transient ischemic attack
  • Certain medications

Treatment:
Treatment of vertigo depends on the cause and on the extent of symptoms. Labyrinthis and vestibular neuronitis are cured by vestibular rehabilitation and medication. BBVV is treated using a process called the Epley maneuver. Meniere's disease is cured by modes of dietary restriction, medication, treating tinnitus and treating hearing loss. Generally, curing the cause of vertigo helps in healing the disorder.

Vertigo is caused by different reasons and factors and rectification of these factors helps in the treatment of vertigo.

Vertigo & dizziness are either due to high or low BP /some ear problem. Check up with your physician and reduce work on laptop. Get eye testing first.

I am 67 year old man and I have the problem of tinnitus (hearing ringing sound) for the last few months. I recently consulted an ENT specialist in Pune (where I live). She told me it happens as result of weakening of nerves in the ears due to aging. She prescribed Absolut3G, a capsule containing a number of antioxidants and melamine, containing B-vitamins for 3 months which I am taking. Apart from this, can you recommend any Ayurvedic medicines to help me? Any other advice?

Thanks for contacting with your health query As you have already taken an opinion of an ENT specialist thus she must have taken due consideration in taking up your case. 1. One should check for Blood Pressure, neck movements, and look for pallor and murmur and check for cochlear symptoms (deafness/tinnitus) & vestibular symptoms (vertigo & dizziness) 2. If the symptoms are not controlled promptly, ask for Hb%, X-ray cervical spine, ENT & Ophthalmic check up 3. In old age cervical spondilytis is one of the commonest cause for giddiness. 4. If your are hypertensive and complaining of above symptoms then either it may be excess dose or postural hypotension in which case one has to stop the drug for a day, then adjust the dose or use a different drug 5..bed rest, avoid movement of the neck, if giddiness is severe. Stop smoking/alcohol. Make sure drugs like anti histaminic, or anti hypertensive are not the culprit. Use cervical collar if cervical spondylitis. For Ayurveda medicine kindly consult me on Lybrate itself to know more about the package.

Hello all I am having hole in my two ears doctor confirmed needs to operate please advise really it is needed.

Hello all I am having hole in my two ears doctor confirmed needs to operate please advise really it is needed.
An eardrum rupture is a small hole or tear in your eardrum, or tympanic membrane. Ear infections, pressure changes, and injury are common causes of eardrum ruptures. A ruptured eardrum often heals without any invasive treatment but if its not healing other treatment options are used which includes 1) Patching-it involves placing a medicated paper patch over the tear in the membrane. The patch encourages the membrane to grow back together. 2) Antibiotics-It can clear up infections that might have led to your eardrum rupture. They also protect you from developing new infections from the perforation. Prescribtion of oral antibiotics or medicated eardrops are required. 3) Surgery-surgery may be required to patch the hole in the eardrum. A surgical repair of a perforated eardrum is called tympanoplasty. During tympanoplasty, your surgeon takes tissue from another area of your body and grafts it onto the hole in your eardrum.
