Brief Answer:
nasal allergy and endoscopy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

In my opinion, your nasal allergy needs to be evaluated. If I were your treating doctor, I would have clinically examined you first, then would have prescribed steroid nasal spray for 6 weeks+ antihistamines and mucolytics combination drugs for 2 weeks+ leukotriene antagonist for 3 months.

Avoid cold items and oily foods.

Keep yourself warm, avoid air conditioning.

If symptoms recur after 3 months of treatment, then I would suggest you to get allergy skin prick test done, to detect the causative allergen and then go for immunotherapy or allergy vaccines for permanent cure. This needs specialist guidance. You can discuss this with your doctor.

Regarding your acidity, since it is persisting from 10 yrs, it's advisable to get upper GI endoscopy done and treat with proton pump inhibitors + prokinetcs drug for 6 to 8 weeks.
For stomach upset, please consult your physician from clinical examination and treatment.

Empirically, you can take sporolac XXXXXXX thrice daily for 3 to 5 days.

Hope my answers have helped you. Pleased to help you further.

Thanks.

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.

I had an asthma attack last week and had to go to the after hours clinic to get a steroid shot. The doctor put me on Advair twice a day and Singulair once a day. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and I just wanted to know whether it was safe to continue trying or do we need to wait a little while?
