I have been getting pressure in head for months and it is daily and constant now. I have tried all sorts! Chiropractor, eye tests, medication. I have just had CT scan and don't think it'll show anything serious up! Please can anyone help. Don't think it's anxiety or stress, not sinusitis. God knows but it's getting me down and I am desperate!

First of all stop feeling desperate as it will do you no good. Maintain your calm and focus on a healthy solution. It is good that all your reports are ok. There are 2 options- see a psychologist and with each sitting you will feel better because the mental pressure you are experiencing will be reduced by talking out to a professional qualified and trained in handling such cases. But, each sitting will cost you money. 2nd option is to regularly watch and practice what is being taught on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will very soon get rid of your problem. Plus, it is totally free.

Dear Dr. I have continuous snoring and insomnia during my sleep and I feel more sedative when I wake up in the morning. Can you please guide me how to recover from this.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. Using a Neti pot, nasal decongestant, or nasal strips can also help you breathe more easily while sleeping. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. There are specially designed pillows available to help prevent snoring by making sure your neck muscles are not crimped. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

You need a thorough investigation to probe into the cause of your problem. If allopathy doesn't give you much relief then homeopathy is the best option for a complete recovery.

I used to hear songs through headphones. Suddenly my ears starts paining and I feel the pain also in my back portion of ears. So wat could be the reason for it and how it cud be resolved.

MBBS, MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Ahmedabad
Please use soft earphones that fits size of your ears. Tighter earphones can cause pain. Better use external headphones. Don't listen loud music. Don't listen music for long time. Get an ent check up and a test called audiometry done to make sure that no harm done till now.

If it is the pain condition due to accident then it could be soft tissue inflammation and it is the question of healing which takes bit more time although depends upon the will power of patient and pain bearing capacity, better to get done the imaging study if not done yet.

1. Apply panderm plus ointment twice daily for (1-2 week) 2. Take one tablet of levocetrizine (5mg) at bed time if itching is severe 3. Thoroughly dry the area after taking bath and keep it dry and sweat free. Apply talcum powder in the area 4. Use loose cotton under wear instead of tight synthetic one 5. Change the under wear daily and use clean and washed one 6. Maintain personal hygiene

Hi lybrate-user, you r recovered from dizziness problem, good. But tinnitus and hearing problem are still there, ok. Listen, you r suffering from tinnitus in left ear, and meniere's disease is still there, so you must reduce sodium intake in your diet and try to avoid noisy places as possible by u, because the main reason behind tinnitus is noise exposure. And divert your attention from tinnitus sound as far as possible. Stay stress free all the day, also anxiety can increase tinnitus problem. Ok. Try to avoid caffeinated products, cola etc. Usually there is no remedy for tinnitus, but the above precautions can prevent you from more irritating perception of tinnitus sounds. And hearing loss is due to meniere's disease and lower frequencies are mostly affected, so get your ear checked and continue the above explained precautions for better result.

Due to cold your nose is blocked. Use nasal spray otrivin for it. Feel cold then cover body with warm cloths, avoid dust area, clean body, change cloths daily, change bed sheet daily, avoid stress. Avoid non-veg, avoid alcohol intake if smokes avoid also that. Cold sponging if get high fever. Drink warm water, juice, green veg. Soups, lquid diets, dalia, take protein diets, tulsi leaf in tea or warm water, geloy juice, avoid cold area, cold things. I. E. Ice creams, fast/junk foods, chinese foods, spicy foods, fat meal, take bed rest, you can take tab. Tamiflu from govt. Hospitals.

I'm having repeated spells of dizziness from the last 1 month. Also sometimes I feel my heartbeat becomes very fast or very slow without any external reason? Are these both related? What might be the cause? I am an asthma patient and use steroid medication.

Same problem of sinuses but can you suggest something other than surgery and medicines.

MBBS
General Physician,
You seem to be bothered with allergic sinusitis. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine we doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are available and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Hope you are helped. Regards.

Hello, you can take homoeopathic medicine belladonna 200 (4 drops in little water) 4 times in a day for 2 days and revert. Gargling twice a day with lukewarm water will also give you relief.
