Welcome to HCM,

Blocked nose and constipation are not related with each other.

If a particular nostril remains blocked all the time, then you are probably suffering with Deviated Nasal Septum, and if sometimes right nostril is blocked and other times left is blocked,then it is normal.

In former case, you can take anti-allergic like T.Levocetrizine-5mg once or twice daily depending upon response. Tab. Celin (Vitamin C) protects you from cold and improves your resistance.

As your feel stomach fullness throughout the day, please get your liver profile done. Meanwhile you can take Tab. Unienzyme twice daily just after lunch & dinner, and T.Supradin or Cap.Becadexamine (multivitamin & mineral) once daily with food.

For constipation, you should take fiber rich diet, drink more water, go for morning and evening walk regularly and can take 2-3 tsf Psyllium husk with milk/water before going to bed. For Hiccups you can take Tab. Domperidone thrice daily.

Thanks for your trust in Healthcaremagic and posting your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma

Hi Aryan,

I do not think both these problems are related, they seem to be different unrelated problem.

For the blocked nose, regular steam inhalation is a good remedy. To prevent constipation in the long run you need to make dietary changes like increase in fiber intake in the diet, consume more fluids.

You should be fine soon.
