There is a need to examine your throat. If there is follicular tonsillitis or severe pharyngitis and some other antibiotic may need to be started. Till then do hot saline gargles and consult further.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses caused by virus, bacteria, fungus, allergy or an autoimmune reaction. Although uncomfortable and in some cases painful, it will often right itself without the need for medical intervention. Sinuses are hollow spaces behind the bones of your face. There are four pairs of sinuses. Allergies can cause sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis can last more than 12 weeks. Symptoms can include loss of sense of smell, halitosis and toothache. Home treatments such as steam inhalation can help the symptoms. If symptoms are particularly persistent, antibiotics may be prescribed. There are a number of reasons sinusitis can occur, including viral and bacterial infections. Doctors often refer to sinusitis as rhinosinusitis.

What Happens When the Electrical Activity of Your Heart Changes?

What Happens When the Electrical Activity of Your Heart Changes?

The heart's electrical conduction system plays a very important role in cardiovascular functioning. Also known as the atrioventricular (AV) conduction system, it regulates and controls the timing of the heartbeat.

How does the heart's electrical conduction system work?

There is a collection of electrical cells in the upper right atrium of the heart known as the sinoatrial (SA) node which acts as a natural pacemaker and generates electrical signals. These signals travel through specialized electrical pathways and stimulate the muscular walls of the heart to contract in a rhythmic manner. This gives rise to the heartbeat that pulses at a specific frequency every minute.

What is the effect of fluctuations in electrical activity on the heart?

The standard heart rate in human being ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. It slows down when a person sleeps and speeds up when one experiences physical or emotional heightening. These fluctuations are triggered by the brain or other systems of the body and signal the SA node to generate charges more rapidly or slowly. This leads to spikes and drops in the heart rate, depending on the nature of the situation.

What happens when there is dysfunction in the heart's electrical activity?

When the heart's electrical conduction system does not function properly, it leads to the occurrence of a condition known as arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. This happens when electrical impulses are generated in an irregular manner and causes tachycardia (rapid heartbeats) or bradycardia (slow heartbeats) which takes place in jarring infrequent tempos.

What causes fluctuations in the heart's electrical activity?

There are various kinds of triggers that cause the heart rate to fluctuate. The exact nature of fluctuation also depends on the type of trigger. A few everyday examples of these causes are as follows:
- Exercise and strenuous physical activity increases electrical activity as the heart is required to beat faster so as to increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles.
- Sleep and rest reduce heart rate as the body is not needed to exert itself.
- Release of adrenaline into the bloodstream causes the heart rate to spike up.

You have done a mistake by discontinuing medicines of TB for a months now. You have not only increased chances of it coming back but also it has increased chances of coming back in form of drug resistant TB(which is a dangerous form called mdr-tb), if the course was incompletely taken.
