Thanks for your question
Since how long you have this?
Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, fluid trickling in throat?
Hi,no head pressure is really bad when i wake up and thruout the day also my ears always feel plugged
since how long?
seems like almost a year
ok i see
have you seen any doctor for this?
no what do you think it could be from
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
The other associated possibility is ear wax but head congestion is not seen in that
You need to see ENT doctor for this
and needs to get sinus xray and tympanometry test for ear
what could i take to help this i heard musinex
Do you have high blood pressure?
no its a little over normal level
ok you can use Tab Sudafed twice daily
xylometazoline nasal spray twice daily for ten days
Steam inhalation with menthol drops twice daily
and mucinex twice daily
all this for two weeks
This is standard treatment to be tried in first two weeks
but keep an eye on blood pressure also
I wish you good luck that you get well soon
Anything else i can help you with?
take sudafed and musinex at the same time?
yes sudafed can be taken with mucinex but not with mucinex dm
what do you think caused this ? is it allergies
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
please ask for any query
please click accept if i have answered your question
this can happen without runny nose ,but after i eat i cough up a little mucus
Yes this can happen without runny nose
the mucus can be from sinuses
Do you have any fear of this being relating to anything dangerous?
its not cancer of anykind ?i didnt think so but just wanted to ask
Not at all because cancer has other symptoms in this area and most common is lymph nodes in neck
if you donot have this then forget cancer
other symptoms are nasal bleeding etc
ok what are systoms of lymph nodes in neck?
swellings on both sides of neck
they appear due to cancer
my glands feel swollen sometimes ?
If sometime then its never cancer because in cancer lymphnodes come and never go
rather increase progressively
Donot worry about this
i reassure you
Thankyou :) can i ask you one more question?
is it normal in winter too have severe nose bleeds and blood comes gushing out fast?
in allergies it can happen but its not otherwise normal
but again in cancer these bleeds are same in every season
good luck for all
Please remember to click accept to compensate me for my time and effort here for you
Thankyou for your time , your responces were very reassuring! and i will try taking the meds u advised. Godbless
my prayers are with you
Any confusion or question?
i just wondered if where exactly your lymphnodes are located on your neck
below the chin, sides on neck and posteriorly
would they hurt if somthings wrong if you press on them
if they hurt then this mean they are not dangerous
they dont hurt i was just wondering are they right below glands? cause if that the case it feel swollen below glands
not necessary, as i you said they are not always there then you should not worry
they can be due to just sinus infection
how can you tell if they are there ? they appear and disappear?
This is what you said ....................my glands feel swollen sometimes ?
right, now im wondering about lymph nodes sorry for the confusion if the appear and disappear
if there was cancer the lymph nodes must be quite large visible to everyone
so i really donot suspect this in your case
ok thankyou, sorry for the misunderstanding. i wont take anymore of your time have a great day!
You are most welcome
