I am facing breathing difficulty from last 3 days. I am allergic to dust. Few days ago, while sleeping I wasn't taking a breath, my room-mate awaken me. Also have difficulty in concentration, tonsil pain and small amount of headache with appetite lowered than usual.

PAST HISTORY : Allergic to dust particles and sinus

Hi,

The season change is going on and most of the allergic people are having trouble at this time,now it depends how much trouble you are having.Many people are having viral infection currently.Now it seems that you are too having some kind of upper respiratory infection(which has involved throat).

1) Are you having any sounds like whistling(commonly known as wheeze)while deep breathing at expiration ?
2) Do you feel about that your diaphragm being pushed up ?
3) You did not tell me about your weight
4) Is there any change in your voice
5) Do you have any problem in deglutition ?
6) Are you having fever and bodyache ?
7) Do you have cold or cough ?

You may follow the following -
1) Have plenty of water
2) Try early morning yoga,a little daily exercise(for five days a week and for 40 mins)
3) If overweight try to loose weight
4) Avoid dust,or avoid going out in evening weather when the sun starts to go off
5) Try to have lighter meals and have more number of meals than having more food in less meals
6) Avoid dinner or have your dinner a little early(avoid spicy food)
7) Have soft diet like porridge,daliya,khichadi
if you are having fever you may have paracetamol 500mg sos(as and when needed) up to three times a day,you might have levofloxacin 500mg od(only on prescription by a doctor after examination)),cough syrup(if any any cough),medicine for cold (if you have nose blocked or runny),lactobacillus which is used so that you don't have diarrhoea due to antibiotic and as i told you plenty of water.
you should be well as soon as the season goes off

Patient asked followup Question: 10 years ago

Well, answers to all your questions is Yes, and my weight is 41kg. Height 5.4. I am having nightmares too during my sleep.

Hi,

1) Are you on inhalers ?
2) Are the sounds at any particular time of day if daily or are are they present all the time,or how frequently do they occur if not daily ?
3) Do yo see any pus discharge ?

This is serious and you should consult a doctor(an internal medicine specialist) right away. Rest all other questions indicate that probably you had a viral infection,and now you have a super-infection added bacterial infection for which you should have an antibiotic course.

Your weight is too less for your height and you should gain weight by adding calories to your diet and sugars to your diet and having at least 5 meals a day. That can be reason for you, that you might fall ill every other time because of nutrients deficit (like proteins and other micro-nutrient deficiency)

Patient asked followup Question: 10 years ago

1) I have been recommended a nasal spray by my doctor around 2 months ago. But it wasn't helping me from last three days. I am having sinus problem from last 7 yrs. 2) Early in the morning, I feel those sounds and little cough with little headache. I don't prefer fan; but as I am leaving away from home, my room-mate needs it badly. I put sweaters in that case. 3) pus is white, gel like clear and I feel better after it's discharge. Some medicines given by my Dr: 1)Azee 2)Cetzine 3)Ascof syrup Are they fine or need some better attention? P.S: I was having nightmares for last three days and slept like not remembering a single dream which was unusual for me. Few days ago when I had nightmare, I almost stopped my breathing, my roomie awakes me and I was somehow saved my life that day. Shall I consult some specialist Dr. in this case? If yes to whome (stream)?

Hi,

As you told me that you have sounds in your chest,you need better attention than the drugs given to you(the four drugs you mentioned me). You should have been prescribed with an bronchodialator by your dotor which is missing in your prescription.

Not remembering dreams is basically fine with most people and that is not a problem(that means that you had a sound sleep). What you told me that you stopped breathing in middle of night this is known as paroxsysmal nocturnal dyspnea and is usually seen in patients of heart ailments,or respiratory distress(along nose block) or might also be seen once in a while of normal person(due to too much of anxiety)

You have to show to an internal medicine specialist ( MD Medicine) for this problem at least your respiratory problem first and if your history will suggest the doctor about any heart disease then he will or might also perform tests for your heart.

About 5 years ago I noticed a dramatic reduction of the muscle mass (Muscle atrophy) in my right calf muscle, like 75% to 80% reduction compared to my Left calf Muscle (possible the gastrocnemius), I also noticed that my Achilles is also very loose, when in a relaxed state, compared to the left leg. What could be the possible problems? There is no pain (other than uneasiness like restless leg syndrome) associated with this problem. I do have a lower back problem (damage) that was done 30 years ago to the L4/L5 herniated disk. Now I have noticed that other muscles are starting to harden and reduce like the one did 5 years ago. I went on a 15 mile hike in the mountains this past summer and I am very active during the day. However I do not regularly exercise as I should. Thoughts?

Hello, I have had a nail fungus for a good ten years or so. When I first noticed it, I went to my doctor and he game me lamasil which I stopped taking after a few days since it had negative affects on me. Thereafter, I stopped taking care of it and just let it go for a good 7 or 8 years. I eventually grew up and started getting very self conscious of how it looked and wanted to wear sandals and flip flops and not have people think nasty things about me. A few years ago I went to my doctor again and he gave me a topical oil which I used for over a year and did not see any results. About two years ago, I noticed that a vertical brown line was starting to grow from the bottom up. I went to a dermatologist who took a sample of my nail but did not take a sample of the nail bed or from the cuticle. Biopsy came back as of course it being a fungus. He in turn gave me pills to take which I also had to stop taking since it was having a bad affect on my liver. After that, my dermatologist said that he would give me laser treatments which I did two of. They did not clear it but it looks a little bit better then what it was before. Still thick, yellow, crumbling below the nail, nail bed where new nail is growing is darker then the others and the brown line is still there. It is a thick brown line. How did I get this brown line? Did I get it because of the prolonged damage of the nail bed due to the years of having the nail fungus?

  Doctor's Answer

You're most welcome. Nail Melanoma does not affect multiple nails together while Longitudunal Melanonychia (LM) often does. The fact that an additional nail is showing changes is nearly conclusive that this is LM, which as I said is harmless. However it would be best to see your doctor to get this confirmed since I cannot see the affected area. I would recommend getting the entire nail removed if its the only one affected by fungus, but this will be solely to treat the fungus not because I thin ...

A few years back after having visited a hill station in India.. i got this sort of coating on my upper lip that couldn't be scraped off easily, a lot of my friends did too.. but even now my problem persists, this was followed by dryness around my lip and white patches that were spreading and cuts started forming. on consulting several dermatologists, they prescribed Fluticasone Propionate ointments of varying concentration saying that its caused by the fact that I was born by extremely dry skin and the saliva dries the area more, but I've been using petroleum jelly on my lips since I was small as I always used to get chapped lips.. I similar sort of dry patch developed on my finger which went on to spread over the years to my entire finger, for which i use the the same medication.. the itching on the finger and the dryness goes away after a couple of days of use but then it comes back when not used and the texture of my finger has turned out to be slightly glossy looking compared to the rest of my fingers..

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, As you said that you don't have leucoderma,and it is just simply dried lips then primary cause for dried lips is allergy.

Hello. I am 29 years old from Australia and currently am in Tokyo. I had protected sex with a hooker a few nights ago and a hand job from one last night. I am overweight and chafe a lot when walking a lot but I have noticed itchy red lines have developed behind my knees on both sides. Red rashes are between my legs (but is usual for my chafing). Please note I have been walking around all day long in jeans in cold/warm weather so I am not sure if red is inflammation or the start of an STD? Please advise if you think I need to return home immediately for tests or if I am overreacting ? Thank you

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, Please tell about your diabetic status. Rashes between your legs, at the back of your knees,in armpits are common, as the area is usually moist and allergic. Rash is common at such a location,and you already told me that chaffing is common to you then it can be because of that only. Looking at your condition that you are unable to wear loose clothes all day long. try and wear loose cotton clothes at some part of the day so that your body can be exposed to fresh air . Try to keep you geni ...

Hello, I began my period on Monday and I feel as though i have an abrasion on the right side of my vaginal opening. Yesterday, removing a tampon was uncomfortable, but today the pain was nearly unbearable. I also began experiencing UTI symptoms yesterday (urge to pee, pain in urethra and bladder at the end of urine stream). I was recently on antibiotics for a sinus infection and took my last pill on Monday. I've also been tested for STDs within the last year and have had the same sex partner. My hubby and I did have rough sex on Sunday but I felt fine and I urinated as normal. Could the antibiotics have given me a uti? What do you think about the scratched feeling? I'm getting worried.

  Doctor's Answer

HI, Abrasion,or may be a scratchy feeling that you are having can have many causes out of which 1)Having rough sex is amongst the common causes 2)If you had sex before actually your vagina was wet(then causing an injury is relatively easy),you might not have been aroused properly 3)UTI itself is among the common causes giving you such a feel. I don't think that you may have had UTI because of any antibiotic,but if you have too less water during antibiotic course and antibiotic taken is a he ...

I have an irregular heart beat that on occasion has been making my chest feel like someone is poking it. The poking pain feeling only occurs in a single location (right side of my sternum next to my nipple) and goes away in a few seconds. Went to the ER but the blood tests found nothing. This has been going on since 8pm Tuesday. I had issues sleeping until my wife came in, and when she laid down next to me I fell asleep. I have no issue staying asleep. Also, I have little to no appetite and I also have to burp a lot.

42 yo female. I have an approx. pencil eraser sized lumped on my right tonsil that is flesh colored and in which I can see the veins in. There is a spot of white on the front of the lump I'm thinking could be bacteria. My concern with the lump is that it appears more as a hemroid would, a lump pushed through the skin wall, not as a lump sitting on the skin wall. I have used a q-tip to investigate the lump with no change. It is near the top of the side of my throat above the tonsil where the throat is starting to curve up. It is smooth all around this spot with only this lump coming down from the wall of my throat there, and the flesh color and veins match that of the smooth skin surrounding it.
