I am smoking for 4 years. I was having dry cough for a month. Today suddenly when I woke up in evening I coughed blood, in very less quantity though, but that made me worried. Can you help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, that is indeed worrying. Please go for a medical check-up to an ENT specialist, immediately. And the obvious measure you must take is to stop smoking completely. This is a reactive measure but it has to be done. In future, you must become proactive and prevent the likelihood of problems before they occur. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

I had been operated for follicular tonsillitis in 2004, but then after in left side, I always got inflammation and pain. I consult specialist several times but no better result.

Hello your information seems inadequate. U r operated for follicular tonsillitis means tonsillectomy was done if you r getting pain even after that then that can be due to pharyngitis so take a full course of treatment from a ent specialist.

Please do this for few nights before sleeping and see: strongly dust or hit all pillows before sleeping in nights. The dust accumulated on pillows during day may act as trigger during the hours of sleep in night. Taking warm drink like cow's milk in night is nice if not allergic to milk.

Hello, My sister got married eight months ago and has not conceived since then. We have shown her to a games and there were few tests prescribed. Her ESR value is 16 and mantoux test value is 10. Doctor told that ESR value is quite high and has advised for a TB test. I wanted to understand if we are going in the right direction or is it necessary to consult a physician. As the next test is 7000 rupees.

MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Anand
Eight months after marriage is no too long period for not conceiving. So, don't worry. Give some time to couple. 16 ESR has no significant value and MT is outdated test for diagnosis of active tuberculosis. I think they both r healthy and conceive sooner or later on.

Homeopath,
I am suffering from last 4 years in asthma only 2,3 months use to madicen. Salbiar - b transialar.
Dear Lybrate User, Asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for TC, DC, ESR & IgE. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via Lybrate. In the mean-time you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GRINDELIA ROBUSTA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

We are not very sure. However for asthma for asthma problem you can do deep breathing exercies which will definitely be helpful for you. And also do breathing exercises in the east corner of the house where you get more energy as it is in the sun rising side.

Hi. Your mother may be in pre or post menopausal phase when because of the hormone fluctuation, body experiences many changes from mood swings to hot flushes. For neck pain: Take homoeopathic medicines Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - both thrice daily. Also, tell her to apply Arnica ointment over the neck area in circular motion gently. For Bronchitis: Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.
