If you r having complaints of nose obstruction and this is interfering with your daily routine you should go for septoplasty. Yes this is a safe surgery done under local anesthesia. Now a days done with endoscopy with minimal pain and bleeding.

If symptoms are from more days or again persist then do few tests for confirm causes of it.. i.e. CBC. welcome in lybrate.

I am suffering from depression for the last 15 years. I was undergoing treatment in our hospital. After coming to kerala I am under the treatment of doctor from pushpagiri medical college, tiruvalla, kerala. Here they have changed the medicine and I am suffering from side effect of the medicine like dry mouth, throat infection, digestion problem etc.

Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
In treatment of depression what got you better keeps you better, if an antidepressant helped you to recover from depression it is advisable not to change the antidepressant. So go back to your new psychiatrist and tell him your problem they should be able to solve it.

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----------------

I am 23 years old. Till the age of 17 my voice was very good and melodious. I used to sing songs in my school days. But after the 17th year I got addicted to the "Sugam pinch Mukhwas" for some time. And after that I was feeling some variations in my voice. That is I couldn't speak clearly, sing with good voice, speak loudly, as before. It feels like something blocking my voice inside my throat. Before 3 years from now, I had my (Nasal Septoplasty) surgery done. But I think it didn't went good and sometimes I still feel problem while breathing and speaking. And before some few months from now I had my blood test done. And the doctors said that I have some kind of throat infection and I did noticed that several times as I spit some kind black fluid in very little amount can be seen in the saliva. So is there any effective solution to my problem i.e. To get my melodious voice back, speak loudly and clearly, breathe easily? I am ready for any treatment - Homeopathy, Ayurvedic, etc.

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

I snore very loudly in my sleep, causing a great disturbance to my family, is there a cure for this.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Exercise your nasal and neck muscles. Keep the nasal mucosa moist. Put humidifiers in your room so that sinuses get sufficient moisture. Prevent nasal phlegm formation. Soft palate exercises also helps. Homeopathy is good for sinusitis and adenoids. Helpd in keeping good oral health. Prevents mouth breathing.

My father is 84 years old and having multiple disease conditions: He suffers from severe anxiety. He gets tensed in very simple incidents of life and thinks a lot about all simple incidents which we in general do not give much attention to. He also suffers from hypertension. Severe hearing loss with damage of tympanic membrane and infection in one ear. Severe spondylitis with disc degeneration and nerve compression with back pain from the same. Painful leg due to sciatica. Blind from glaucoma in right eye and age related macular degeneration in the left eye. Tendency of prostate enlargement, and pain and burning with urination at least twice a year. He also suffers from GI ailments like gas, indigestion, and very soft stools every now and then. Due to his frail and weak physic, we mostly try to avoid any allopathy medications sans emergency situations. For a long period of time, he is taking essentia area once a day and viscum pentarkan once a day. For the last few weeks he is also taking alfalfa tonic. Presently, his blood pressure is mostly normal or very little above normal. I would like to know what should be my approach to his treatment? What medicine regimen should he follow? I would also like to know if there is any medications that can arrest the progression of age related macular degeneration. And if there is any medication to arrest his hearing loss. He seems to get disturbed mostly by the fact that he is gradually losing his vision and listening ability. Thanks

Actually you need to consult a rehabilitation physician in your nearby area, as this case has multiple problems and needs proper rehabilitation. All these problems are inter-linked and solving one problem can cure another one. Adding any type of drug (allopathic or non-allopathic) will add to more problems. While I was in aiims, new delhi, I have seen many cases like this, in which solving a single problem cures many problems. Consult me in private. Do not worry, we can solve problem.

Hello lybrate-user there is no permanent treatment for sinusitis. It occurs due to allergy so as you cannot get rid of allergens like pollen dust its unlikely to cure it for ever. Jus that you can take precautions to avoid dust exposure, avoid strong odours, wash the linen regularly avoid pets. If sinusitis is secondary to deviations of central partition in nose you can try for surgery options. Take care.
