    Pneumonia is a lung infection that can be potentially fatal if it is not treated on time. This disease may cause fever, cough, cold and congestion and is known to clear within two to three weeks with bed rest and proper remedies at home. Yet, it is best to have it checked by a doctor, especially if it happens to affect a child. The causes of symptoms of this condition are as follows:

    Symptoms: The most common symptom of pneumonia is a painful cough with which you will end up throwing out lots of mucus. This mucus or sputum usually comes from the lungs. The patient may also have fever and may experience shortness of breath and shallow breathing on several occasions. Further, chills that cause chattering teeth and shivering, can also afflict the patient, especially during the night. Chest pain is also a common symptom of this condition due to the excessive and persistent coughing, laboured breathing and congestion. Due to this, the patient may also experience accelerated heartbeat and a pounding heart. Nausea, weakness, fatigue and loose motions are some of the other symptoms of this condition.


    Germs: Germs finding their way into the lungs is a sure shot way of contracting pneumonia. These bacteria are most likely to strike when you have just recovered from a flu, cold or fever following which your immunity is pretty low.
    Chronic Ailments: Patients who are suffering from chronic ailments like asthma, heart disease, diabetes and even cancer, are at risk of getting pneumonia, in which case immediate treatment will be required so that it does not become a fatality.
    Bacteria: While the specific bacteria cannot be diagnosed with the help of tests, the most common bacteria that cause this condition are known as Streptococcus Pneumoniae. Other bacteria that can cause this disease include the Mycoplasma Pneumoniae which can cause a more mild form of pneumonia known as walking pneumonia.
    Virus: The viruses that cause influenza like virus A and B can also cause this disease along with the respiratory syncytial virus or RSV. These affect the nose, lungs and throat.
    Immunity: When your immune system is impaired or when you have just recovered from a bout of moderate to serious ailments, this virus or bacteria is most rampant and can afflict you. In case the patient is suffering from AIDS or other fungal infections, the risk of contracting pneumonia is heightened.
    This is a contagious disease that may be caused when you breathe the same infected air as another patient with the same disease. It can also follow viral diseases like chickenpox and measles.

    Recent years have witnessed the severity of acute respiratory infections. The main cause is exposure to more of respiratory infection causing microorganisms. Everyone is at a high risk of exposure. The infections can affect all age groups equally. Therefore, you must know all about acute respiratory infections.

    Acute respiratory infections may interfere in normal breathing. The infection often starts as a viral infection in the nose, trachea (windpipe) or in the lungs. In cases of non treatment, the infection spreads to the entire respiratory system. The infections are transmissible.

    There are many respiratory infections of which causes are unknown. However, a few known viral causes are as follows:
    1. Adenoviruses: these viruses are known to have over 50 different types of viruses causing common cold, bronchitis as well as pneumonia.
    2. Rhinoviruses: these viruses cause common cold. Those individuals, be it young or old, who have a weak immune system can have an acute respiratory infection.
    3. Influenza virus: this is also known as orthomyxovirus with six types of viruses, such as type a, b and c, isa virus, thogoto virus and coronavirus. Out of these, type a is known to cause a severe disease.
    4. Enterovirus: this virus is associated with several human and mammalian diseases, including acute respiratory infection.
    5. Respiratory syncytial virus: this virus causes respiratory tract infections in the lower respiratory tract.
    Bacterial causes are as follows:
    A. Bacillus anthracis
    B. Bordetella pertussis
    C. Corynebacterium diphtheria
    D. Pneumococcus: it is a cause of meningitis and pneumonia.
    E. Streptococcus pyogenes
    F. Haemophilus influenzae

    Few of the prominent symptoms are as follows:
    1. Itchy, watery eyes - soreness behind eyes and often conjunctivitis
    2. Nasal discharge and congestion
    3. Sneezing
    4. Having sore throat
    5. Coughing
    6. Severe headache
    7. Fever
    8. Malaise
    9. Fatigue
    10. Muscle pain
    11. Diagnosis

    The first thing that the doctor tends to check is the breathing pattern of the patient, followed by a number of checks:
    1. Fluid and inflammation in the lungs
    2. Nose and throat checks
    3. X-ray or ct scan would be required to check the condition of the lungs in advanced cases
    There could be complications such as respiratory failure, respiratory arrest or congestive heart failure

    Ideally for viruses, there isn't any cure. Medications that are prescribed are for the symptoms.
    1. Cautious use of antibiotics for the symptoms can reduce adverse effects as well as decrease costs. It will also reduce drug resistance.
    2. A single oral dose of nasal decongestant used in common cold could be moderately effective to aid congestion in grown-ups for a short period.
    3. Alternate medications, such as the use of vitamin c help in the inhibition and cure of upper respiratory infections.

    1. Probiotics and vaccination are available for certain infections such as urtis, adenoviruses and streptococcus pneumoniae.
    2. Best prevention is to boost your immune system.

    Painless swelling of both legs including feet and ankles is a common problem, especially among older peoples, leading to both morbidity and mortality.

    Leg swelling, medically known as oedema is caused by the retention of fluid in leg tissues due to problem with the circulatory system, the lymphatic system or the kidneys.

    The effect of gravity makes the swelling most noticeable in the lower part of the body.


    Leg swelling is common when the person also:

    Is overweight
    Is older
    Has veins in the legs that cannot properly pump blood back to the heart

    Swelling may also occur after pelvic surgery, especially for cancer.

    Long airplane flights or car rides, as well as standing for long periods of time, often lead to some swelling in the feet and ankles.

    Swelling may occur in women who take estrogen, or during parts of the menstrual cycle. Most women have some swelling during pregnancy.

    Swollen legs may be a sign of-

    Heart failure,
    Kidney failure, or
    Liver failure.

    Certain medicines may also cause leg swelling-

    Pain killers/analgesic/nsaids-ibuprofen etc.
    Blood pressure medicines (calcium channel blockers)- amlodipine
    Hormones, such as estrogen (in birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy)

    Some tips that may help reduce swelling:

    Put your legs on pillows to raise them above your heart while lying down.
    Exercise your legs. This helps pump fluid from your legs back to your heart.
    Follow a low-salt diet, which may reduce fluid buildup and swelling.
    When traveling, take breaks often to stand up and move around.
    Avoid wearing tight clothing around your thighs.
    Lose weight if you need to.

    Consult a doctor as soon as possible-(if)

    You feel short of breath.
    You have chest pain at rest or walking.
    You have heart disease or kidney disease and the swelling gets worse.
    You have a history of liver disease and now have swelling in your legs or abdomen.
    Your swollen foot or leg is red or warm to the touch.
    You have a fever.
    You are pregnant and have more than just mild swelling or have a sudden increase in swelling.
    Self-care measures do not help or swelling gets worse.

    Diagnostic tests that may be done include:

    Blood tests such as a cbc or blood chemistry
    Chest x-ray
    Doppler ultrasound examination of leg veins
