DR HASAN :

HI

DR HASAN :

Thanks for your question

DR HASAN :

Since how long you have this?

DR HASAN :

Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, fluid trickling in throat?

Customer:

Hi,no head pressure is really bad when i wake up and thruout the day also my ears always feel plugged

DR HASAN :

since how long?

Customer:

seems like almost a year

DR HASAN :

ok i see

DR HASAN :

have you seen any doctor for this?

Customer:

no what do you think it could be from

DR HASAN :

I am myself an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist and in my opinion the first and most likely possibility is a chronic sinus infection plus blockade of ear tube resulting in fluid in the middle ear

DR HASAN :

The other associated possibility is ear wax but head congestion is not seen in that

DR HASAN :

You need to see ENT doctor for this

DR HASAN :

and needs to get sinus xray and tympanometry test for ear

Customer:

what could i take to help this i heard musinex

DR HASAN :

Do you have high blood pressure?

Customer:

no its a little over normal level

DR HASAN :

ok you can use Tab Sudafed twice daily

DR HASAN :

xylometazoline nasal spray twice daily for ten days

DR HASAN :

Steam inhalation with menthol drops twice daily

DR HASAN :

and mucinex twice daily

DR HASAN :

all this for two weeks

DR HASAN :

This is standard treatment to be tried in first two weeks

DR HASAN :

but keep an eye on blood pressure also

DR HASAN :

I wish you good luck that you get well soon

DR HASAN :

Anything else i can help you with?

Customer:

take sudafed and musinex at the same time?

DR HASAN :

yes sudafed can be taken with mucinex but not with mucinex dm

Customer:

what do you think caused this ? is it allergies

DR HASAN :

Yes usually but its not always necessary , sometime just anatomical abnormalities in sinuses can cause this leading to ear problem also as the ear tubes are present behind the nose

DR HASAN :

please ask for any query

DR HASAN :

please click accept if i have answered your question


 


 

Customer:

this can happen without runny nose ,but after i eat i cough up a little mucus

DR HASAN :

Yes this can happen without runny nose

DR HASAN :

the mucus can be from sinuses

DR HASAN :

Do you have any fear of this being relating to anything dangerous?

Customer:

its not cancer of anykind ?i didnt think so but just wanted to ask

DR HASAN :

Not at all because cancer has other symptoms in this area and most common is lymph nodes in neck

DR HASAN :

if you donot have this then forget cancer

DR HASAN :

other symptoms are nasal bleeding etc

Customer:

ok what are systoms of lymph nodes in neck?

DR HASAN :

swellings on both sides of neck

DR HASAN :

they appear due to cancer

Customer:

my glands feel swollen sometimes ?

DR HASAN :

If sometime then its never cancer because in cancer lymphnodes come and never go

DR HASAN :

rather increase progressively

DR HASAN :

Donot worry about this

DR HASAN :

i reassure you

Customer:

Thankyou :) can i ask you one more question?

DR HASAN :

yes please

Customer:

is it normal in winter too have severe nose bleeds and blood comes gushing out fast?

DR HASAN :

in allergies it can happen but its not otherwise normal

DR HASAN :

but again in cancer these bleeds are same in every season

DR HASAN :

good luck for all

DR HASAN :

:)

DR HASAN :

Please remember to click accept to compensate me for my time and effort here for you

Customer:

Thankyou for your time , your responces were very reassuring! and i will try taking the meds u advised. Godbless

DR HASAN :

my prayers are with you

DR HASAN :

take care

DR HASAN :

Any confusion or question?

DR HASAN :

you there?

Customer:

i just wondered if where exactly your lymphnodes are located on your neck

DR HASAN :

below the chin, sides on neck and posteriorly

DR HASAN :

in groups

Customer:

would they hurt if somthings wrong if you press on them

DR HASAN :

if they hurt then this mean they are not dangerous

Customer:

they dont hurt i was just wondering are they right below glands? cause if that the case it feel swollen below glands

DR HASAN :

not necessary, as i you said they are not always there then you should not worry

DR HASAN :

they can be due to just sinus infection

Customer:

how can you tell if they are there ? they appear and disappear?

DR HASAN :

This is what you said ....................my glands feel swollen sometimes ?

Customer:

right, now im wondering about lymph nodes sorry for the confusion if the appear and disappear

DR HASAN :

if there was cancer the lymph nodes must be quite large visible to everyone

DR HASAN :

so i really donot suspect this in your case

Customer:

ok thankyou, sorry for the misunderstanding. i wont take anymore of your time have a great day!

DR HASAN :

You are most welcome

DR HASAN :

please remember to leave positive feedback i was helpful

i have a what i think too be a fatty cyst on the right side of my lowr back how can i tell if its just a cyst.i also have lower back pain
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Hi--this seems like a subject you didn't mention to the other expert. Can you tell me more about this cyst?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes i think he was busy,its smaller than a grape and moves around when i try to touch it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Where exactly is it located and how long has it been there? Can you tell me more about the back pain?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
its at the right side of my spine by the tail bone and ive had over 2 yrs
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the back pain might be from my bed ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Is it in the midline or more to the side?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
more too right sidebut pretty close too spine
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. It's probably either just a benign cyst or a small lipoma--a benign fatty tumor. If it were exactly in the midline I might have said it was a pilonidal cyst. The only way to tell for sure is to have a doctor look at it, but nothing serious. And tasting a nasal spray in the back of your throat just means that you used it properly and the medication is getting where it needs to go.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ive heard its a good thing if it moves ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Yes because that's what a cyst or a lipoma does. Cancer is hard and immobile.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
is that known to cause back pain
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
What--cancer?
