I have nose leakage And Blocking Problems From 2 or 3 months Recently I visited a doctor he said that I have a sinus operation And my question is What is sinus operation and what is exactly done in sinus operation?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user. Sinusitis occurs bcz of inadequate drainage of sinus that may be due to many reasons like mass or polyps in nose or deviated septum or polypoidal mucosa due to allergy. Surgery for sinusitis is called FESS (functional endoscopic sinus surgery) in which underlying pathology is removed and sinus drainage is restored. But before that you need to get a CT scan done to know about the underlying pathology. Review with report.

Sinus Problem and its treating method in Acupressure points:


Sinuses Problem and its Treatment in Acupressure
If you are plagued by sinus problems, take a moment to consider these valuable parts of your head. What can turn good sinuses into problem sinuses?

Your sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones between your eyes, behind your cheekbone, and in the forehead. They produce mucus, which helps keep the inside of your nose moist. That, in turn, helps protect against dust, allergens, and pollutants.
Interesting Sinus Facts
No one is completely sure why we have sinuses, but some researchers think they keep the head from being too heavy.Sinuses are also are responsible for the depth and tone of your voice. This explains why you sound like Clint Eastwood when your sinuses are all stuffed up.If the tissue in your nose is swollen from allergies, a cold, or environmental triggers, it can block the sinus passages. Your sinuses can?t drain, and you may feel pain.

There are eight sinus cavities in total. They are paired, with one of each in the left and right side of the face.Two sinus cavities are located in the forehead.Two are behind each cheekbone.Two sinus cavities are within the bones between your eyes.Two are behind each eye.
Acupuncture & Acupressure treatment method for this problem:
Acupressure and Acupuncture treatment is one of the best and proved method to relieve this Lung related problem and as per this method so many reason cause this problem, like cold in winter, cold in summer like so many reason and a traditional acupuncturist is capable to provide parmenant relive for this problem throug diagnosing the condition of pulse of an individual, Here I have mention some common points to get relive from this sinus problem readers can approach me for more clarification on this topic

Acupressur Points for Relieve this problem:
To relieve your upper or frontal sinuses, use B2, located at the bridge of your nose. This mental stress point is located in the indentation of your upper eye socket, where the bridge of the nose meets the ridge of your eyebrows.

To open the maxillary sinuses in the cheek, use the foremost acupressure points for the sinuses: LI20 and St3, underneath your eyes, just below your cheekbones. Use gentle pressure. These points are safe and useful to teach to children.- Have a Healthy Life- Acupuncture Dr. Nazir Sheriff - www.Acuheal.In

Wenever one uses a ear bud what you do is pushing the foreign particle or wax far inside than removing it. Moreover der are chances of injuries to the ear canal if not used with care. So just get an ear examination done.

You are neither equipped nor trained to clean the ear canal! Unfortunately all you have done by using cotton buds in your ear is push the ball of wax further inside the ear touching the eardrum which is causing all that pain! Please use this app to find an ENT Specialist near you, fix up a physical appointment for extraction of the impacted wax to relieve your misery. MORAL OF STORY. Let the doctor do the job he was trained for. And do yours by paying your doctor for the service ;)

I have sinus problem from last three years. So pls tell me what could be possible treatment whether in allopathy, homeopathy or Ayurveda.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5. If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.

I have been feeling little dizzy for some time, and I checked my bp at home it was showing 148/95 and the next day it's 150/115. It's too high and is it normal to fluctuate? I Don't prefer medication. off late I am too stressed and I am getting frequent head ache. Pls suggest what should be done.

The two readings of BP that you have mentioned are slightly high; you should get it corroborated by showing a nurse practitioner or a doctor who will check your BP for you. If the BP readings are high on multiple occasions at different times of the day, then you may have Hypertension, which is the disease in which High BP is the only problem. Since you are young, it may be related to gestation, or there may be an underlying condition which can cause Hypertension; this is called Secondary Hypertension, and investigations may be required to find an underlying condition (such as Kidney disease, hormonal disorders, etc). All these are best done by a Physician well-versed in management of Hypertension. The last thing I would like to say here is this: nobody in this world loves to take medicines; if there is someone like that, I have not met that person. Taking medicines has nothing to do with our likes or preferences; it has to be taken for better health and quality of life. If your physician identifies that you have Hypertension and that you need to take medications to prevent the damage that Hypertension can cause, then you actually have no choice. The silver lining is that Hypertension (again, assuming you have it) can be reversible in the early stages, or be very easily controlled by appropriate diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. Till such time that it does not become permanent or severe, you have the choice of using these non-pharmacological methods. I definitely hope you don't have Hypertension and all this is a false alarm; but even if you do have it, please understand that it is not such a bad thing to be taking medicines for high BP.

Yes this is anxiety disorder + claustrophobia. Consult psychiatrist soon. You will get relief in 4-6 weeks and do complete the full course of medicine to avoid relapse. You may need counseling also for irrational fear and anxiety management.

How long does it take for an inner ear infection to get fully recovered. I have been feeling dizzy for the past one month now! I was on cinnarizine 15 mg twice a day for a week. Now my doc suggested stemetil 5mg which have been taking 3tabs daily for the past 3 days. No improvement yet. I am growing worried. Is this normal? does it take so long for an inner ear infection to get treated? do I need to see an ent specialist. Please advise.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Definitely u should consult an ent specialist. Its not necessarily inner ear infection, cause can be bppv benign paroxysmal positional vertigo that occurs due to dislodgment of some particles in the inner ear from one place to another and this can be corrected by a manouvre done by an ent specialist.

My nose get clogged (nasal congestion) in the night and I breath by mouth which gives very dry mouth in morning and bad taste also my sleep gets disturbed due to nasal congestion please suggest a suitable medicine I do not have cold but mucous is always there in my nose this happens specially in night when I sleep.

MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Rajkot
It may be due to overweight, nasal blockage, low soft palate or enlarged tonsils. So for proper diagnosis you are requested to send photos of nose and throat .For further help consult me privately. If you are having snoring, you may have also sleep apnea, so you must go for a test called sleep study, by which we can diagnose a disease called sleep apnea. Send me the report of sleep study, so I can guide you further.

Hello lybrate-user you can do warm salt water gargling for throat pain. Lozenges of tusq chewable will help to reduce cough. Avoid curds and buttermilk for few days. Paracetamol for pain can be taken. If still persists after 4 days than do consult.

Hi, is there any history of injury to ear? most of the time, any fluid leaking out of an ear is ear wax. A ruptured eardrum can cause a white, slightly bloody, or yellow discharge from the ear. Dry crusted material on a child's pillow is often a sign of a ruptured eardrum. The eardrum may also bleed. Causes of a ruptured eardrum include: foreign object in the ear canal injury from a blow to the head, foreign object, very loud noises, or sudden pressure changes (such as in airplanes) inserting cotton-tipped swabs or other small objects into the ear middle ear infection other causes of ear discharge include: eczema and other skin irritations in the ear canal swimmer's ear -- with symptoms such as itching, scaling, a red or moist ear canal, and pain that increases when you move the earlobe visit an ent specialist, get your ear checked and share that prescription or report with me. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - silicea 6x/ 3 times a day daily for 2 weeks. Revert.
