It shows your low immune level along with lower respiratory tract infection (or allergic bronchitis). U need to take medicines initially to subside the cough per see along side with proper immune builders. You may also do all the investigations like CT chest,PFT etc to rule out various diseases. Authentic ayurvedic treatments from Arya vaidya Sala Kottakkal will be truly beneficial.

There is nothing like different forms of tuberculosis and it is only that the site of infection matters for diagnosis and in smear we just see the sample in a microscope with a naked eyes and in culture we wait for few hours for any presence of organism to grow.

It can be chronic rhinosinusitis or allergic rhinitis, most probably. But more dangerous yet uncommon conditions like csf rhinorroea also has to be ruled out. You need to visit an ent surgeon for assessment and treatment.

My mother has been hospitalized. She was having dry cough and then we got her checked and she has been detected with tb level 4 (thats what I have been informed). She is in hospital for 12 days we dont see any improvement, she is diabetic as well. I need your suggestion that should I also consult some other doctor and hospital in pune (since I am in pune). Hospital is billing like crazy. I am being asked to pay 111000 for 11 days and there is no improvement in my mother's health. Please suggest.

You should also independently consult a good government hospital doctor or hod. Govt offers free tb treatment. Tb treatment can also be done at home under govt hospital supervision and guidance. Diabetes complicates the problem.

If angiography & ECG are normal , get an Echo test to know % age of heart function. It looks like a case of allergy. You can change tablet , my experience tells me the new llergy tablets are not as effective as good old used for 50 years plus. Ask your chemist to give you Chlorpheniramine malleate tablet , you may find it difficult as it is used in combination with phenaramine given for Dry cough. Both tablets and syrups are available , ask for Solvin combos and get back here to tell all of us about a positive feed back.

My friend wants to leave smoking but he can't because every 3 hours he gets sweat n headache if he doesn't smoke. He also can't run more due to this n his breathing becomes fast. He haa tried all nicotine chewing gums but all in vain. What to do?

He will have these reactions as a sign of the withdrawal symptoms but that should not deter him from going ahead. Give him these suggestions: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
