Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I am a 23 year old guy. I recently had a master health checkup done. Everything was ok except for a fact that my chest xray indicated that I had prominent left hilum. The doctor who I consulted that there is nothing to worry in 99% of the cases but I should be careful and take a CT scan done. Is it necessary or should I go for an MRI? Do I need to worry? P.S I have had asthma and weezing as a child and I had primary complex twice in my childhood. I have been smoking for the last 4 years.

CT has a adverse effect of radiation hazard. So benefit must be weighed for the risk. Every radiological finding must be correlated clinically. Get your previous xray compared with the present one. For chest CT is the best. MRI has few indications especially if vertebrae related lesion or neural lesion has to be seen. Best wishes

Pain at backside of head is generally due to problem in cervical spine (spine of neck). 1. Intervertebral disc prolapse in cervical spine. 2. Neck muscle strain. 3. Occipital neuralgia: entrapment of nerves at back of head. Diagnosis can be made by detailed symptoms of patient and examination findings. Mri cervical spine may be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Follow these tips to get relief; 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen round the clock for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply warm water bag on neck if you find it soothing. 3. Do neck stretching exercises after pain is relieved. 4. Maintain good posture during work or reading to relieve neck strain. Avoid reading or computer work with neck bent. Keep text books at eye level. 5. Consult a pain specialist to get relief from severe pain with injection known as occipital nerve block at back of head.

Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2. Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3. Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4. Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc. Should be consumed. 5. Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6. Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7. The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided.

Asthma can be managed with appropriate and timely therapy in most cases. Since almost 80% of the cases are of allergic origin, it is important to first get your allergy profile done using the allergy skin prick test: environmental panel. Once the source of your allergy is known, preventive measures would play a major part in your asthma management and need for medication is likely to reduce drastically. In some cases, patients could get relief even without medication for a long time, just by avoidance.

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.

Rx Steam inhalation with halin drops or mint leaves. Dashamoola katutrayadi kwatha 10ml diluting with warm water twice a day before food. Sudarshan vati 2 twice a day after food. Avoid cold heavy fermented oily food stuffs. Avoid exposure to direct wind and sunlight.
