Apart from taking symptomatic treatment I will suggest you to buy a steam inhaler machine of crescent company and Take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through the inhaler and can repeat the process after eight hours as and when required.

I am a 68 years old male. I am a diabetic. I hear buzzing noise continuously and echo of sounds causing hearing distortion and loss. What should I do?

This is mostly because of age related changes in your auditory nerves. Called presbyacusis. Diabetes can aggravate the condition you need to do a hearing test depending on the loss. Hearing aid may help you. It can also reduce the buzzing in your ears by masking the sound.

I am 54 years old I have blocked nose problem for many years now, I take otrivin regularly and I cannot live without it. Due to this I have snoring and disturbed sleep every day leading to subsequent problems in day to day life. What is the permanent solution to it other than surgery which was told to be a temp relief solution as the same problem can reoccur.

Hello nasal blockage can be due to deviated nasal septum, hypertrophied turbinates, allergic conditions or infection. If you have been using otrivin for a long time that itself can cause rebound nasal congestion. You need to get examined by an ent surgeon to know whether any surgery can help you solve your problem permanently. If in any case you are not willing for surgery there is something called cpap machine for snoring & sleep apnoea. You have to get a polysomnography done before going for it. Lifestyle changes also help. No any particular medicine available for snoring. You need to stop using otrivin.

General Physician,
Coblation A low-temperature device for removing tonsils offers surgery with less lingering pain than tissue-burning techniques. It's called Coblation. The device uses radio waves that turn a simple salt solution into a stream of powerfully charged ions. These ions don't get very hot. But they carry so much energy, they cut right through tissues.

I am 23 years old, I have been consuming alcohol for 4 years. Suddenly I am getting rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, dizziness,nausea. The faster I consume .faster the symptoms get. please help.

Are a few things that could cause a fast heart rate when there's a good amount alcohol consumption: #1. Dehydration. Lowers blood volume so heart has to work faster to compensate #2. Ion imbalance could cause misfires on your heart. Probably as the result of dehydration as well. #3. Alcohol withdraw symptoms #4 low oxygen level (sleeping/passed out under a blanket or pillow) when the oxygen level gets dangerously low, the fight or flight response kicks up to boost the intake of oxygen and circulation. #5. Of course panic attack when you realize that your heart rate is above normal after waking up suddenly from your sleep (even when you have been passed out). Basically the panic attack is a result of the above symptoms. There are probably more reasons, but those few above were the big ones. Unless you have a serious heart problem and you are on heart medication, you shouldn't worry about the heart rate at all. Hopefully this is helpful for you guys out there.

I have pain in my throat. Whenever I eat the adam's apple pains a little. This is happening to me since yesterday.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Do this several times daily for one to two days. For further queries get back to me.

I am 44 years old man and I have dizziness and seems to be moving while standing for few minutes for last one month. I took lipid profile test on 11/07/2015 and result is as follows: cholesterol 150 mg/dl, trigliceride 258 mg/dl, hdl 42, ldl 56.4, vl dl 51.6. What will be the possible problem and disease? what are the vegetables to take and to avoid please advice.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
