I have been chewing ghutka since 2008. And now I finally quitted chewing totally since 3 weeks and now I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms including shortness of breathe sometimes suddenly. I want to know is it a serious issue? What should I do now? And how long will it last?

Nothing to worry really. Withdrawal symptoms will run their course and will gradually fade away. Drinking a lot of fluids and do good vigorous exercises and that will lessen the effects. If it gets really unbearable you can visit a doctor who will prescribe medicines to ease the symptoms​.

The best and the only way is to quit smoking for good! No medicine or treatment on the planet can help your lungs if you don't stop smoking. This is the plain and unadulterated truth! Many interventions are available to help quit smoking. My sincere advice to you is to stop thinking of various options and focus on quitting smoking. take care!

It is often said that the key to successful asthma treatment lies in the identification of its triggers and symptoms. It is important to know as much as possible about this chronic respiratory condition so that you can take appropriate action when required. The inflammatory disorder causes the airways to narrow and swell leading to difficulty in breathing and chest tightness. However, all asthma patients do not have the same set of symptoms. Apart from the classical signs of asthma, patients may also suffer from many other physiological changes which are difficult to track at times. But, for successful management, one should learn to identify the pattern of occurrence and chalk out a proper rating system. Apart from this, one should also be able to spot the triggering agents in order to avoid them.

Asthma – An Overview:

Asthma is defined as a chronic inflammatory condition of the lungs that may affect people of all age-groups. There is no complete cure for the condition and treatment is mainly aimed at correcting the symptoms and avoiding the triggering agents.

Symptoms: The symptoms of asthma can be broadly segregated under three sub-heads namely, classic, emergency and additional symptoms.

Classic Symptoms:

• Shortness of breath that worsens with activity or exercise.
• Cough – with or without sputum.
• Chest tightness experienced as something squeezing or sitting on your chest.
• Wheezing – characterized by a squeaky sound that occurs while breathing. Wheezing may come in episodes and may worsen during activity and cold weather. They may also exacerbate early in the morning or at night.

Emergency Symptoms:

• Extreme difficulty in breathing.
• Sharp – rapid pulses.
• Sweating
• Bluish coloration of the lips and face.
• Feelings of anxiety or panic
• Difficulty talking and inability to catch your breath

Additional Symptoms:

• Temporary stoppage of breathing
• Abnormal pattern of breathing associated with severe wheezing.
• Coughing that won’t stop
• Nasal flaring and chest pain

Factors that trigger asthma:

Cigarette Smoke: Smoking of any form – direct or passive - places a person at a greater risk for developing asthma. If you are pregnant, it is advisable to avoid smoking as this increases the likelihood of your baby developing the condition.

Dust and Mites: If you are allergic to dust mites, you should take proper measures to limit exposure. This is because they can trigger allergic reactions like asthma. Although, it is impossible to get rid of all the mites, you can probably cut down the number by taking certain precautionary measures. This involves reducing the dampness in your homes, preventing the accumulation of dust, frequently washing pillows, blankets and stuffed toys and using high efficiency vacuum cleaners.

Pets: Another major source of allergen that can trigger asthma are household pets, cats and rodents. An ideal way to control animal allergens is by preventing their entry inside the living space and thoroughly cleaning household furniture, carpets and walls at periodic intervals.

Pollens: A major form of airborne allergen – pollens can acts as a triggering factor during certain specific times of the year. Hence, it is seen that in some people, asthma gets worse during the pollen seasons (i.e. during the spring and early summer seasons). To reduce exposure to them, remain indoors during these seasons as much as possible and avoid any form of direct contact with these allergens. Also, make it a point to shower every time you have any kind of high exposure to pollens.

Occupational asthma: If you have asthma, it is advisable to refrain from working in any type of “high risk” industry that involves dust, grains or animals. For different people, the triggering agent may be different. Hence, always consult a doctor to help you identify the exact cause of the condition.

Infections: Asthma can also be triggered by certain respiratory infections and common cold. When asthma is caused by such health conditions, prompt treatment should be taken to limit the duration of illness and prevent further attacks.

Physical Exercise: A particular form of asthma, termed as exercise-induced asthma usually occurs after a few minutes of exercise in certain people. This is particularly noticeable in cold weather conditions and should be avoided by using appropriate medications a few minutes before exercising.

Same problem of sinuses but can you suggest something other than surgery and medicines.

MBBS
General Physician,
You seem to be bothered with allergic sinusitis. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine we doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are available and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Hope you are helped. Regards.

I have cough from 10 days.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hi zeeshan. I can understand the pain you are going through. For your tonsillitis .start with warm salt water gargles atleast twice daily and pain killers twice daily too. This should ease your pain. But for complete treatment you need to visit an ent surgeon. Take care dear.

Hello, you should avoid the medicines which you are taking as these are creating considerable side effects in your body. So gradually try to taper off the allopathic doses. Start homoeopathic treatment for the existing problems. Homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently. Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes overreactive in asthma. But I need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole. So that I can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. In the mean time take ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and bc no. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

Since when it has been started, if its have been for 3- 4 days it will subside by itself. But if its recurrent then give a proper case history.
