I am 41 years of age. I have pain in whole body almost. For quite sometime now. It pains in the neck, shoulder, arms, back, waist and also in the arm and leg joints, elbows, knees, ankles etc. Also feel headache at times. Can't sit straight for long as back pain starts and even can't keep knees folded and sit for long as it starts paining. I am also having tremendous weakness as if I will fall done at time. Feel shortness of breath sometimes and chest discomfort as well. I cant walk much faster and long as feel tired and distressed. I have done several diagnosis related to heart and shown cardio but as per doctor I don't have any cardiac problems. I am also going through tough time professionally and financially for last few months now. I am too worried about my health and can not concentrate on anything else due to this. Please help me to get fit and healthy.

I have a asthma. How to recover from asthma. And I am very weak. And. So many times I was affected bye fever and cold.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Asthma can be controlled by regular use of inhaler medicines which usually contain bronchodilators and corticosetriods. Few cases in which symptoms may not be easily controlled may be difficult to treat asthma that may require an expert asthma specialist consultation. For recovering from weakness you should take a balanced diet, plenty of fruits and vegetables, milk and milk products etc. It is believed that, use of vitamin c may help in improving immunity.

I AM SUFFERING FROM BREATHING PROBLEM I USED TO TAKE ASTHENIL 4 TAB WITH OMNACORTIL 10MG TAB BUT NOT REGULARLY IS IT HARMFUL TO ME OR NOT

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Indore
There are many side effects of the drug apart from uncontrolled asthma. Chronic intake of omnacortil will lead to gastric ulcer, weakened bone, weight gain etc and sudden stopping of the drug may lead to sudden lowering of blood pressure. Asthalin will lead to tremors, anxiety, pounding heart beat and of course uncontrolled asthma. Please take good prescribed drugs. Asthma usually gets controlled. Best wishes

I have sinusitis and few months back developed a polyp in my right nostril. I have read a lot about polyps and sinus and I concluded there has to be something that's triggering my problem. Would it be wise to consult an allergist? I have been to many doctors (not an allergist yet) but all of them suggest surgery.

ENT Specialist, Aurangabad
Nasal polyp mostly requires surgery. Pathology causing polyp usually decides about further management. If you are having nasal allergies symptoms like lot of sneezing and itching then you may consider visiting an allergy expert.

I am 51 years male I am suffering from sinusitis from 10 years there is pain below I bows, please give suggestion or prescription for the above problem.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Main symptoms for sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

I am 22 years older. I am suffering from sinus problem can you please give me solution to overcome it completely.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Dear infection of sinus is called sinusitis, this happens due to lack of hydration, repeated infection of nose this is again due to lack of hydration and dryness of nose so keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you. If you do not get the solution than go ct scan done for nose.

Asthma - Common Triggers Behind it?

Asthma - Common Triggers Behind it?

If you have been diagnosed with asthma, it is important for you to know about the most common triggers of asthma. Asthma is a medical condition, which is characterised by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. It causes breathing difficulties, tightened chest and coughing. By identifying and reducing your exposure to several asthma triggers, you will be able to manage or control your asthma symptoms and the frequency of your asthma attacks. Here are the most common triggers of asthma you should know about:

Allergies that trigger asthma
Allergies, are common problems and over 80% of people are suffering from asthma and are allergic towards substances like weed pollens, animal dander, dust mites, mould and cockroach particles. Children having large amounts of cockroach droppings in their homes are more likely to develop childhood asthma. Dust exposure may lead to dust mite allergy in asthmatic patients.

Food which triggers asthma
Certain food allergies may lead to isolated asthma, where other symptoms are absent. Patients with food allergies can exhibit asthma as a part of anaphylaxis, which are food induced. The common food items which are associated with allergies include eggs, peanuts, cow milk, soy, fish, wheat, shrimps, salads and fresh fruits. Several food preservatives also trigger asthma. They may include sulfite additives such as potassium bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite, sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and many others. These are commonly used in food processing and trigger asthma in sensitive people.

Asthma induced by exercise
Strenuous exercise may lead to the narrowing of the airways in maximum people having asthma. Exercise acts as a primary trigger for asthma symptoms in many people. Patients having exercise induced asthma are likely to feel chest tightness accompanied by coughing and breathing difficulties after completing an aerobic workout session. Although the symptoms subside, they may reoccur within some hours. You should warm up properly and slowly before a rigorous workout session to prevent an asthma attack.

Smoking
People who smoke are more likely to have asthma. If you have asthma and still smoke, the symptoms of wheezing and coughing worsen. Pregnant women who smoke increase the chance of wheezing in their to-be-born babies. You should absolutely quit smoking if you have asthma.

Infections which trigger asthma
Several infections such as cold, bronchitis, flu and sinus may cause asthma attacks. The respiratory infections, which are viral or bacterial, are a common cause and trigger asthma, especially in children. Asthma is also associated with severe heartburn. According to studies, more than 85% people with asthma also suffer from heartburn. This is a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I always have cold, I have consulted quite few doctors, their medicines stop reacting on me after a period of time. I also opted for homeopathic treatment. I am not a doctor so I am not sure if it's sinus or just allergy but I really want to get rid of it. I start sneezing at any random time in any situation, sometimes I wake up in middle of night and start sneezing.

MBBS
General Physician,
You may be having allergic or viral infection due to which you are getting cold of and on. Do warm saline gargle regularly have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection. You can have a tab of cetrezine as and when required. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises in clouding deep breathing exercises. Or you could be having frontal or maxillary sinusitis with nasal septum deviation. Or a nasal polyp if you could consult the ent specialist to rule out the nasal problems. For the time being you can have a tab of cetrezine as and when required.
