Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic

This is Dr. Priyanka tiwari answering your query .

Read your query , understand your concern as you have mucus in throat this can be due to Cold l flu , Allergies ,sinus infection , Drug induced , changing weather , certain foods like spicy food , or reflux of gastric acid . For this I will suggest you to Do XXXXXXX warm saline gargle two - three times a day, you can take steam inhalation two - three times a day, You can take Antihistamine drug like Levocetrizine and omeprazole by consulting with your local doctor .

As you feel like face pressure on left jaw and clicking sound on opening mouth this indicates temporomandibular joint disorder . For clicking sound and tension in neck region you can take some precautions like :
-Avoid excessive mouth opening .
- Do Hot formentation (take towel soak in warm water squeeze it and apply on jaw of both side and neck
Region )
- Take soft diet for few days .
- You can take Drug Muscle relaxtant like Flexon MR or Myospaz Forte by consulting with your local doctor .

Hope this information will help you .
Hope I have answered your query , if you have further query feel free to ask I will be happy to help.

My Mother has C-Diff and can no longer take most antibotic so the question is how do we treat small infections like a sinus infection or a kidney infection. I know the one antibotic she can take is Flagaral but if she takes it to much will it help her when the c-diff acts up again. Also how contagious is it when she isnt sick with it.

Hi last August I had a sinus infection together with what felt like an explosion in my head. This happened 2 months after being put on a second blood pressure tablet and after a course of antibiotics. I had an intense pressure in my head and ears. The problem is still on going and I have had two MRI scans and been cleared through ENT, the second MRI was to look closer at the Trigeminal Nerve (am on Carbamazepine) but all seems normal. The sensations (difficult to discribe) down my right side of my head mainly seem to be coming from the temple area. The neurologist has passed me back to my doctor but said in his letter that they could refer me back to him if needed! I still have not had any real diagnosis. Can you help me please?

my sister is in hospital... total knee replacement 10 weeks ago, doing great diagnosed with sinus infection last week, drainage, coughing, lost voice this Tuesday had fever 101.6 with redness on surgical site went to dr next day. said cellutitis, sent her to ER @ hospital. Did blood cultures, chest xray, ultrasound of lower leg. Sent her to Omaha to her knee surgeon. He said no infection in knee, but she was sick and had infection. Gave her Zpack antibiotics. Sent home Today (Friday) went to clinic again. Dr. admitted her to hospital in Omaha. Her scar is redder and spreading. sudden redness in ankle and splotches all over leg that look like hot water has splashed and burned her. Dr. said doesn t look like normal cellulitis. Had lots of questions about cancer in family. We are all worried sick. What is causing this? She had taken her antibiotic pill today so they are going to start her on strong IV antibiotic Saturday. Thank you so much for your kind advise.
