TB ferron test / mantoux test tells the same thing. Get pleural fluid tested for biochemical and cytological to draw some conclusion for diagnosis.

Hair fall is mainly due to protein deficiency and other nutritional deficiencies and regarding sinusits main symptoms for maxillary sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

You must be suffering from allergic rhinitis and frequent episodes of infections called as rhinosinusitis. Treatments should be taken for long time and permanent cure does not occur usually try using steroid nasal sprays and antihistamines for few months.

My mom is suffering from tb from past 5 years. Even though they complete one year treatment of t. B, its not cured. Now its getting increasing. Any other treatment to cure this completely? please suggest.

Hello , first of all it is very important to rule out drug resistant tb by doing sputum bactec afb culture and sensitivity test. Once confirmed, we can start her on definitive anti tubercular treatment based on reports. So do the test as early as possible and consult your doctor for further treatment. Thank you.

You can go but take possible preventive measures. Take inhalers and also take ginger lemon honey tea with you. It may give relief. Do deep breathing while climbing. It will expand lungs and increase capacity.

HI, When there is no fever, loss of appetite and loss of weight, TB will be ruled out. If you still have doubt, do Montaux test and get it confirmed.

Hope he is taking anti tb treatment daily. There is no sputum production or blood in sputum (good, it is a close case, he cannot infect others) there is no chest pain. Only symptom is breathlessness & noisy breathing. Use honey with warm water. Torrex syrup is also helpful & does not interfere with other medicines for heart or for tb. Some people cannot tolerate- curd, oranges, lemons, acchhars, chutneys, sour foods like imli as it triggers cough. Avoid any of these if they cause cough. Every vegetable that does not cause distention is allowed as cough becomes worse due to heavy oily food, vegetables cooked by frying. Saute the vegetables & pressure cook to retain the taste. Every fruit is allowed. As he is a heart patient too, I am sure that his intake of fats is low. With anti tb medicines also being toxic to liver, it is advised to take low fat diet & avoid other toxic antibiotics given routinely for fever! give him a high protein diet like toned milk, protein supplements of his choice. Avoid medicines to lower cholesterol also as they can cause toxicity to liver.

You are being medicated for your nervous symptoms. These medicines are surely to have side effect of drowsiness, sleeepy feeling like you are feeling now. If you are able to learn different methods to relax your body and mind with proper yogasana, proper diet, meditation, you will not need any of these medicines. All your medical reports are within normal limits. If you remain medicine dependent, in future your health is likely to suffer. Try to learn at a reputed Yoga Pranayama center.

Ways to Identify and Treat ANGINA PAIN?

Ways to Identify and Treat ANGINA PAIN?

Angina or angina pectoris is the pain, discomfort or tightness in the chest that occurs when the blood flow to the heart muscle cells is not enough to meet its energy needs. It is not a disease itself but rather a symptom of the coronary heart disease.

What are the different types of angina?

1. Stable angina: It is the commonest form of angina. It can be triggered by stress or physical activity and usually only lasts a few minutes.

2. Unstable angina: It happens when you're resting or aren't very active. The pain is strong and long lasting, and may keep recurring. It may be a signal of an impending heart attack.

3. Variant angina: This might take place when you're asleep or at rest. This sudden tightening or narrowing of the heart's arteries causes a lot of pain.

How u know what your are experiencing is an angina pain?

You might be having angina pain if you suffer from one or more of these symptoms:

- Chest pain
- Heartburn
- Breathlessness
- Nausea
- Dizziness
- Restlessness
- Fatigue
- Pain in your arm, neck, jaw and back
- Numbness or loss of feeling in your arms, shoulders or wrists

Immediate Relief from Angina

If previously advised by a certified doctor, patients can take antiplatelet medicines which are blood thinners and prevent unstable angina. Final treatments include angioplasty (repair of a blocked blood vessel through surgery), insertion of a coronary artery stent (a tube that is used to treat weakened arteries) or a heart bypass surgery for serious complications.
