I keep on getting cough and blocked noses by every 3-4 months with headaches. But now from previously for sometime I am experiencing headaches wherever I do some extra physical activity. With that when I first contacted ENT he told me its allergy and gave me some medication and later after 1 month when I visited again he referred me to a Neurologist saying its neurological migraine. And the neurologist gave me divalproex extended release tabs. What to do. Should I continue ?

Divalproex shall certainly help you. In case it does not help you to the maximum, then visit your neurologist again and get the dosages adjusted. If it still troubles you and if you want a complete relief, then you can try an integrative medical approach with both allopathy and homeopathy, as it can give you the best results and complete relief.

7 Things To Avoid When You're Suffering From Cough

7 Things To Avoid When You're Suffering From Cough

1. Avoid eating cold foods: According to Dr. Pradip shah, consultant physician, fortis hospital, mulund, a common cold and cough triggered by cold food items like ice-cream and cold drinks is a common complain of people visiting local health clinics. Although there is no scientific evidence as to how cold food items trigger and worsen coughs, patients are normally advised to avoid them altogether until they recover completely. One sensible explanation for this would be that cold beverages and foods cause a drying out of the respiratory lining making it susceptible to infections and triggering coughing due to irritation.

2. Avoid overeating at night: Having a heavy dinner at night or overeating can be a cough trigger for people suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd). People with gerd may have poor coordination between contraction and relaxation of the sphincter muscle that prevents reflux of food to the esophagus. As a result, the stomach acid can flow back to the food pipe, causing irritation of the lining to trigger cough. So, it’s better to have an early dinner and maintain a gap of at least 2 hours between dinner and sleeping time.


3. Avoid sleeping flat on the back: Sleeping posture plays an important role in triggering coughing at night, especially if you have a productive cough. All the mucus and phlegm that gets collected throughout the day, flows up to irritate the throat when you lie down on your back. Instead, sleeping in an inclined posture, or sleeping on the sides will keep the phlegm settled and avoid bouts of coughing at night. 

4. Avoid eating fried foods: Fried foods are oily in nature and oil is a well-known cough trigger. Deep-frying foods in hot oil generates a compound called acrolein, which acts as an allergen that aggravates coughing and causes throat itching. So, it’s best to avoid oily, fried foods while you have a cough.


5. Avoid smoking: Smoking is one of the causes of a cough due to bronchitis. Not only does it irritate the throat lining, but it also delays recovery and increases your risk of cancer. If you don't smoke, remember second-hand smoke is equally dangerous. 

6. Avoid caffeinated beverages: Caffeine should be avoided by those who cough due to acidity and gerd. While it may provide temporary relief from a coughing bout, it actually causes the esophageal sphincter to become loose, allowing more acid to get flushed into the esophagus.


7. Avoid over-exertion: Nobody takes an off from work because of a cough, but that doesn’t mean you should exert yourself by overworking. Coughing is an indication that something is wrong with your body, so make it a point to get adequate rest to give your immune system enough time to recover.

I am 23 years old. I am suffering with spinal cord injury (c4 fracture) since 2010 now I almost recovered but my left foot is dropped and knee hyperextension. Please help me what I do?

Master of Physiotherapy, Bachelor in Physiotherapy

Hi lybrate-user thank you for giving me an opportunity to answer your question. Weak hamstrings are usually the reasons when it comes to knee hyperextension, however a weak gastrocnemius (calf) can be a big factor too since it passes over the knee joint as well. Considering the foot drop you have I would say the calf is probably a bigger issue than your hamstrings. If your quadriceps is weak on that side you would have to lock out your knee by hyperextending it. Do strengthening exercises for hyperextended knee. Eg. Straight leg raise. Quarter squats, forward stepups etc exercises. Foot drop can wear ankle foot orthotics for some time and do electrical stimulation to strengthen those muscles. Regards.
