It is very easy to get sort of addicted to these nasal drops. Once somebody recommends you, you find it very effective, it opens your nose completely. So you use it frequently and gradually you start to realize that your nose remains blocked until you put the drops in. Requirement of drops gradually increases. To get rid of this you need proper ent surgeon treatment. But you may try to gradually reduce number of drops and the gap between drops during daytime. Put the drops in one nostril at a time. Aim should be to keep one side of nose open during daytime. And then you stop the drops after significant reduction. Then gradually reduce nighttime drops and stop it.

I am 26 years old and snore while sleeping and main problem is snoring sound which is very high as per feedback of my family. I was feel very sleepy even though I take 8-9 hrs sleep but sleep late and wakeup late. Please need your advice to cope with snoring and sleep as am not able to concentrate on my studies.

Hi, Please follow these tips to stop snoring: - Reduce your weight if you are obese. - Perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - Quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - Quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - Sleep on sides instead on back. - Elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - Clear the nose before going to bed. - Establish regular sleep pattern. - Keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - Perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - Anti snoring appliances can also be used.

He must get polysomnography. He must stop taking alcohol. If the report comes as obstructive, then he must consult a ENT specialist, otherwise he should use C-Pap on advice of chest physician

I am 28 years old, height is 5.9 inches weight is 89 kgs working in a admin department from last one year I am suffering from snoring can you please suggest me how to reduce this problem?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. Using a neti pot, nasal decongestant, or nasal strips can also help you breathe more easily while sleeping. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. There are specially designed pillows available to help prevent snoring by making sure your neck muscles are not crimped. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

Doctor actually I feel pain in my ear and around this like that when I eat food and open my mouth.
According to your question, it seems like a pain in your temporo mandibular joint and there are many reasons for this pain but first we should reach to a diagnosis that whether it is the same tmj pian or not and for that a physical examination is required-----------so please consult an ent specialist physically to rule out any ear pain/infection----------------

It will be due to wax in ear. Start an ear drops called soliwax ear drops, 3 drops three times in a day for 3 days. So, your wax will become soft. Then visit an ent specialist, he will clean your wax easily.
