When I am sleeping. I remain usually well but early in morning my nose starts sneezing very badly like allergy.
Early morning cool air may be the reason. Homoeopathy has good treatment without causing adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine arsenic alb 200 twice daily in the morning and in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.

Reasons Behind Dizziness And Its Treatment!

MS- ENT
ENT Specialist, Jaipur
Reasons Behind Dizziness And Its Treatment!

Dizziness is usually described as variety of sensations, which comprise of a feeling of faintness, unsteady, weak, light headed, giddy or woozy. When dizziness causes a false feeling of spinning and the moving surroundings is known as vertigo.

Dizziness can be one of the most common reasons for a visit to the doctor. However, constant feeling of dizziness can affect a person's life drastically, but it is rarely life threatening. The treatment of dizzy sensation and dizziness mostly depends on the symptoms.

Causes of Dizziness
The common causes of dizziness are medication, motion sickness and ear problems, especially disturbances of the inner ear. An injury, infection or poor blood circulation can also lead to dizziness. The triggers of dizziness and the sensations it provides are used to evaluate the cause. Also, the duration of the dizziness and the symptoms lead to a clue towards the cause of the same.

Dizziness Caused by the Inner Ear Problems
The balance of the body depends on the combined effort of many parts of the sensory system. These are:

  1. Sensory Nerves: These send messages to the brain in regard to the body positions and its movements
  2. Inner Ear: The inner ear has the organ of corti which are responsible for detecting the motions and thereby help in the balance of the body.

In vertigo a person might feel that the things around them are moving, thus creating a swaying or a spinning motion. Vertigo is usually caused by the problems of the inner ear. 

The common causes are:

  1. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), this happens when the calcium particles accumulate in the inner ear canals. The inner ear is responsible for the body movements and balance.
  2. Meniere's disease, a problem of the inner ear mainly caused by the build up of the fluids, thereby leading to a change in pressure. This causes vertigo along with hearing loss and tinnitus.
  3. Vestibular neuritis is the problem of the inner ear and is largely due to infection. Infection leads to swelling of the nerves of the inner ear which affect the body movements.

Treatment of Vertigo Includes:

  1. Rehabilitation of the vestibular system by physical therapy in order to strengthen it.
  2. Canalith repositioning by suggesting some body and head movements basically for BPPV. These movements help to move the calcium deposits from the inner ear canals to one of the chambers, which are further absorbed by the body. When the canaliths (calcium deposits) move, it might give rise to vertigo.
  3. Medicines are given to relieve symptoms of motion sickness and nausea. Antibiotics can be taken in case of infection and swelling.
  4. Surgery in some cases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.

Hello and welcome to lybrate, discharge from ear is generally when there is perforation of ear drum. You need to get it checked by an ent surgeon. For the time being, I think, best ear drop for you will be: oticheck ear drop, 2 drops thrice daily for 14 days. Thanks and get well soon.

Wax formation is natural cleansing mechanism of body. Do not get into habit of ear cleaning regularly. Consider ear wax removal only if ear is blocked or is painful and hearing is affected. No single method is foolproof everytime. Visit your specialist if you have bothersome symptoms. You may use wax dissolving drops for 3-4 days before visiting the specialist.

You may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea. To get rid of your problem you should loose weight, avoid alcohol and sleeping pills, avoid sleeping in supine posture and finally consult with an experienced ENT surgeon to know if you need surgery.

I am 28 years old man. L have been suffering from tonsils for the 3 days. Please give me the prescription.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Tonsillitis occurs as a result of a viral infection or, at times, due to a bacterial infection that causes enlargement of the tonsils. The condition can be of varying degrees – mild, moderate and severe. You need anti bacterial and anti viral treatment for that. You can try home remedy for that like Salt Water The best and the most common home remedy for tonsillitis is to gargle with warm salt water. The warm water will have a soothing effect and the salt will help kill the virus or bacteria. Plus, salt helps reduce inflammation, giving you instant relief. Mix one teaspoon of table salt in a cup of warm water. Gargle with the solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Repeat this as often as possible for speedy recovery. 2. Lemon Lemon’s antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties take care of the infection as well as the inflammation. Plus, its high vitamin C content improves the body’s resistance to infections. In a glass of lukewarm water, add the juice from one lemon, a pinch of salt and one teaspoon of honey. Drink it slowly, twice daily for a few days. Alternatively, you can sprinkle a little salt and pepper on a slice of lemon, and then suck on the lemon slice. It will help force the phlegm out of your throat. Do this two or three times a day for several days.

Vocal cord modules occur as a result of faulty usage of voice, Acidity, shouting etc. Voice therapy will help you to remove faulty voice usage pattern and learn correct one. If it doesn't improve with speech therapy(voice) then we can plan for surgery but mostly it is required for small nodules.

Good day lybrate-user. Yes there is a chance of presence of infection even though the test are negative. Anal mucosa is thinner than vaginal mucosa and high chance of getting injured and disease transmission. Even though you have used condom there is always a good chance of transmission through Oral. Chlamydial infection can be multi systemic like Gastrointestinal tract, Genitourinary, lungs and at a times central nervous system too. So You need to watch out for all kind of symptoms and signs not just for Chlamydia but for other sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphills etc. As there is Oral sex is also present. Consult a physician for complete information and prevention. Please contact if still further assistance.
