I have a feeling that there is phlegm in my throat and that I need to keep clearing it every 4 to 5 seconds. Even while speaking, I need to keep clearing the throat. I have been facing this problem since the last one week.

Ringing In Ears - What Does it Mean and When to Seek Help

Ringing In Ears - What Does it Mean and When to Seek Help

Ringing in the ears, medically called Tinnitus, is a condition in which the individual hears a certain sound continuously in the ears.

The nature of this sound varies with different individuals. The sound may be whistling, buzzing or bell-like; it might be low or high; seeming to come from a far point or from inside of one's body.

Tinnitus in most cases is subjective where only the affected individual is able to hear the sounds. In some cases, the condition might also be objective wherein the doctor/examiner might be able to hear the sounds on examining.

Understanding the most common cause:

The process of sound waves travelling from the ear to the brain is facilitated by hair cells. When these hair cells are damaged, the brain does not receive signals which cause dysfunction in the activity of neurons. This dysfunctional neuron activity results in the illusion of sounds in the said individual. This illusion is referred to as Tinnitus.

Other causes that might result in Tinnitus are:

Damage around the hearing sections of the brain also might result in ringing sounds / tinnitus. Excessive noise might result into Tinnitus and if not prevented might even progress to hearing loss. There are also some drugs that may cause or worsen the condition.

When to seek help:

In the case of a sudden episode of Tinnitus, it may be associated with hearing loss. Such an episode should be followed by visiting the doctor immediately to prevent any further damage.

Sometimes, the ringing sound occurs rhythmically with your heart beat. It might be because of a pulsating blood vessel and/or because of a sudden hike in blood pressure. This condition would also be relatively easy to cure if reported immediately to the doctor.

If ringing sound occurs with a certain movement, it might be associated with stroke in some cases. In such incidents, conveying the exact symptoms and seeking help sooner would help in treating the underlying cause effectively.

With the first episode of Tinnitus, a regular medication that you intake should be shown to the doctor to rule out medication as the cause or to discontinue a certain medication if found to the causative agent.

It seems to be tonsils infection. Do hot water gargling. Take a course of antibiotics on doctor's prescription. That should be sufficient. If at all it still recurs only then further investigations may be required.

The best option is to meet an ENTSurgeon equipped with LASERs in your city as LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation is the best option where about 2 mm thickness of the tonsillar surface is vapourised by the LASER. This will render the Tonsillar Crypt shallow so food cannot be trapped in it causing the tonsillolith. Another benefit is that the foul-smelling bacteria that reside on the surface of the tonsil will also be destroyed during this procedure, so you can also say goodbye to bad breath!

What Causes Meniere's Disease?

ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
What Causes Meniere's Disease?

What Causes Meniere’s Disease?
Meniere's Disease is a disorder that basically affects the sense of balance and hearing of the patient. This condition takes place in the inner ear and it may cause problems like vertigo, where patients experience a spinning sensation and a ringing sound as well. This is a chronic disorder, which requires a number of lifestyle changes so that it can be managed and treated without becoming a debilitating problem.

Patient can have fluctuating hearing loss in this condition.

Read on to know more about the symptoms and causes of the condition.

Symptoms: The various signs and symptoms of this disease include a feeling of fullness in the ear, which has been affected by the condition. Also, most patients have a spinning sensation and a ringing sound in the affected ear. Nausea and vomiting may also be caused by this condition, along with sweating and loss of balance. It is also normal to feel uncoordinated when you are suffering from this condition.

Secondary Symptoms: This condition may also cause many other complications, which are known as secondary symptoms. These include anxiety, depression and stress. This usually happens due to the problems in the ear and even the problem of vertigo. This may cause problems for people who climb heights or ladders for their work or even for other recreational causes. The constant sense of dizziness and spinning may cause a person to become anxious and undertake stress when it comes to carrying out various kinds of functions in day to day living.

Causes: There are various causes of this condition, even though many medical reports suggest that the exact cause has not really been understood so far. As any doctor will tell you, the in the inner ear there is a labyrinth which contains fluids. When there is a problem with the composition and level of these fluids, the patient may develop Meniere’s Disease. This condition specifically affects the inner part of the ear. This part is made up of passages and a cavity as well as soft membrane like structures with hair like sensors. These sensors respond to the fluid’s movement within the ear. When this fluid does not have the appropriate levels, it can lead to many complications like Meniere’s Disease, which affect the nerve impulse that these sensors catch and transmit to the brain.

Stages: This disease progresses over a set of three stages. In the very first stage, the patient will experience much dizziness and nausea, before that progresses to the second stage. In this stage, the patient will have moderate to severe vertigo. This is also known as the middle stage. Finally, this may culminate into the third or late stage, which leads to more frequent episodes of vertigo. The hearing of the patient and the ringing sound in the ears will also get worse in this stage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT Specialist.

Hello- suffering from copd in this age is due to improper food habits and schedules. Try these tips and treatment- 1) use kankasava 2 tsp twice daily (this effective ayurvedic medicine will remove accumulated mucus from your lungs and provide strength to your breathing and hence will clear your breathing pathway) 2) practice kapalbhati pranayam (it will digest extra mucus by increasing your digestive fire) 3) avoid excess liquid intake (water, milk, cold drink). Intake of liquid more thn the necessity will produce mucus nothing else. 4) avoid day sleep.(it is the leading cause of copd now a days) 5) avoid non-veg diet and fast foods (they create indigestion which decreases immunity and make you prone towards infection) 6) when your pathway is clear and congestion free, practice anulom-vilom to avoid recurrence.

If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition There are some supplement available that can be start after personal consultation and these supplement can reduce severity and no. of episodes of this problem so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.
