Madam lybrate-user cough results in strain on your rib muscles which pain. Causes for cough could be cold, lung. Infection or gastric reflux of stomach acid due to spicy foods etc. If it is more than two weeks think of major infections or allergy of throat or sinuses or lungs. Please consult a physician. Other features may be missed if you do not consult a physician.

The most common reason is drugs which she must be taking especially for cardiac disorders. So we have to review her drugs and then go for few investigations.

Weight lose krne k liye kuch btayen natural diet le rahi hoon but saas bohot foolti hai.

Weight lose krne k liye kuch btayen natural diet le rahi hoon but saas bohot foolti hai.
Your bmi is quite high and excess weight has started affecting even your daily functioning. It is high time you take this seriously and undergo comprehensive lifestyle modification to lose weight. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Most diet fails because they are low calorie and low fat. Instead of correcting metabolism, they make you feel low energy or makes you feel excessively hungry. If you are doing regular exercise, it will increase your fitness but it does not reduce weight much. To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customized approach. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Continue brisk walks or jogging for 45 - 60 minutes every day. Best wishes.

I have sinus problem. It pains a lot me during winter seasons. I have took medicine still it didn't satisfied me. What remedies should I take.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Drink lots of fluids such as water and clear soups. Fluids help loosen mucus. Fluids are also important because they help prevent dehydration. Gargle with warm salt water a few times a day to relieve a sore throat. Throat sprays or lozenges may also help relieve the pain. Avoid alcohol. Use saline (salt water) nose drops to help loosen mucus and moisten the tender skin in your nose.

If the fever is continuous and not getting reduced with anti-pyretics then better to have her evaluated for fevers like typhoid, malaria, chickengunya and dengue etc. But don't get tensed it only for evaluation and to get confirmation and try to rule out those chances at early stage. Take her to a doctor if not getting subsided.
