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

Where exactly is it located and how long has it been there? Can you tell me more about the back pain?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
its at the right side of my spine by the tail bone and ive had over 2 yrs
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
the back pain might be from my bed ?
Is it in the midline or more to the side?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
more too right sidebut pretty close too spine
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 reply replied 5 years ago
ive heard its a good thing if it moves ?
because that's what a cyst or a lipoma does. Cancer is hard and immobile.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
