I am a 63 years old male suffering from chronic nasal congestion, also rhinitis, which aggravates during the current season every year. I also suffer from sleep apnea and i am using c-pap machine during night. Nasal blockage (dry nose) is only relieved by using Otrivin nasal spray once in a day. What should I do?

Breathlessness can be due to heart or lungs or both. Get x ray chest, ecg, blood for cbc, sugar, lipids and get back here with reports. Halter test can wait for now, can be done later if needed.

Avoid curd totally. Go for salted buttermilk instead added with a pinch of black pepper. Always prefer warm water to drink after meals never take curd at night. Avoid pickles and very sour items. Do pranayam daily 30 min do cardio work out daily under supervision. Cardio work out helps increase lung capacity. Dry roast haldi powder (without oil) in a vessel till it appears dark yellow. Store it. Take 1 tsp of this daily at night with warm water/warm milk. Always take low fat milk/cow milk for drinking/tea purpose. Avoid exposure to cold weather. Avoid stress by meditating everyday.

Hello doctor my mother having sinus problem. So she cannot able to cook the masala smell creates sneeze and running nose. What is the best remedy?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ghaziabad
Hello lybrate-user. From the brief description that you've provided, your mother complaint seems to be an allergic disorder and not sinusitis. However recurrent episodes of allergies can eventually lead to sinusitis as well. Wearing a simple mask is a good option, if it can provide relief. Also use exhausts and proper ventilation in the kitchen. If still not feeling well. Then anti allergic tablets or nasal spray can be used.

My wife suffers from asthmatic breathing problems. She is taking duomate transcaps daily. I like to know by taking duomate will have any side effects? Or it is advisable to use it life term.

You don't need to take rotacaps lifelong. First you need to find out the allergens responsible for her allergies by doing allergy skin prick testing. There s also an option of allergen immunotherapy.

COPD Is Broken Down To Clinical Scenarios - Chronic Bronchitis & Emphysema!

MD - Physician, Diploma In Tuberculosis & Chest Diseases

COPD Is Broken Down To Clinical Scenarios - Chronic Bronchitis & Emphysema!

Chronic Bronchitis is a result of inflamed bronchioles (pipes carrying air to alveoli or balloons) that can produce mucus and lead to coughing and difficulty in breathing. When smoking causes inflammation of the bronchioles, constriction or squeezing takes place. This results in wheezing because air is travelling through narrowed tubes.

Emphysema, in short, is basically a dead lung. As smoke travels farther down your respiratory tract, the air sacs in your lungs (alveoli), start popping out or dying. Your bank of alveoli gets depleted over time as you continue your habits. You will notice as you increase your heart rate whether its by running or walking a flight of stairs this activity requires your red blood cells to move faster through the alveoli and have less time to receive oxygen from the lung. This leads to having less oxygen on red blood cells whose job is to deliver oxygen to the rest of the body.

Symptoms

In COPD, Both the airways(pipes) and lung parenchyma are affected by the disease and airflow limitation is progressive. COPD has been predominantly seen in patients above 40-yearold and frequent smokers.

The symptoms indicative of COPD are as follows:

1) Chronic cough - Also referred to as smoker's cough, the cough is relentless and does not subside with regular cough treatment. This is one of the first indications of COPD.
2) Mucus buildup - There is constant built up of mucus which gets expelled during coughing. The person never feels completely clear of mucus, and the regular cough expectorants do not help relieve the symptoms.
3) Fatigue associated with limited activity - As noted earlier, the reduced capacity of the organs limits their activities. Therefore, regular activities like walking short distances or climbing stairs can induce fatigue.
4) Shortness of breath - The above fatigue is associated with shortness of breath, even with small physical exertion. A person with COPD will see marked tiredness and reduced ability to perform routine chores and feel a tightness in the chest.
5) Wheezing - Passage of air through the obstructed air tubes produces a whistling sound or wheezing. It is more pronounced when there is mucus accumulation in the airways.

Rarely, Frequent respiratory infections, more frequent flu attacks, swelling of the feet and ankles, cardiovascular disease, weight loss, and morning headaches.

Treatment 

While there is no cure for COPD, once it sets, the following are some ways to slow its progression and reduce severity of the symptoms:

1) Bronchodilators - Dilate the air tubes and ease flow of air
2) Corticosteroids - Help reduce inflammation and thereby improve airflow through the tubes
3) Flu vaccination - Helps curb the frequent flu attacks
4) Antibiotics - To contain infections
5) Pulmonary rehabilitation - A combination of breathing exercise and patient education to improve lung function.
6) Oxygen therapy - In very severe cases, oxygen may be required.
7) Lifestyle changes - Eating healthy foods, preventing exposure to dust and smoke, quitting smoking, breathing exercises, bi-annual medical check-ups to monitor lung functions are essential.

Knowing that you have COPD is the first step towards managing COPD, which can be managed effectively.

I am coughing for weeks. My age is 52 what treatment/test need to go for? Kindly suggest Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Please get a chest xray PA view, and sputum examination for AFB, gram stain. This is basic. The rest of diagnosis may depend on the nature, periodicity, associated nasal or throat related symptoms. Ass history of breathlessness, chest pain and there's a long list. So please be specific in your symptoms as explained above. Then possible tests or disease may be clear to US. You can take a voice consult for a better diagnosis and can even get a prescription for your problem.
