Question: Hi, I have a tickle in my throat that makes me cough. As I am coughing phlegm comes up, my eyes water and my nose runs. This happens all throughout the day about 10 to 20 times. It feels like mucus is stuck in my throat.

Brief Answer: Sinusitis Detailed Answer: Hi Sir, I have gone through your query. It suggests that you may be suffering from the sinusitis. i would suggest you try the below mentioned treatment option: 2. Nasal Decongestant and steroids. 3. Systemic decongestant. 4. Steam inhalation three times a day. 5. Saline nasal douche two times a day. A course of appropriate antibiotic can help in recovery. You can contact a local doctor for a prescription. In addition to prescribing drugs, the doctor can also consider 1. CT scan of the para nasal sinuses. 2. Nasal endoscopy and 3. ENT examination. The tests would rule out other possible condition. Hope this helps. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.

I went to the Doctor's today. I was diagnosed with a minor sinus infection, but I have a resting heart rate of about 120bpm and I'm having a little difficulty breathing. Plus, I can't sleep... I know I should be exhausted, seeing that I haven't hardly slept in the last three days. Maybe a max of five hours last night, other than that two or three hours.

i m taking sulfameth/trimethoprim for sinusitis (stuffy/achy ears, ringing in my ears). i ve finished 9 days of the antibiotic, and have 2 tabs left for tomorrow - but tonight i cannot sleep because i have a pins and needles feeling on different parts of my skin - hands, legs, cheeks, etc. i m not sure if it s a side effect of the drug? also, my symptoms in my ears have returned. i m so tired, but i cannot fall asleep because i m so uncomfortable.

I had a bad turn this morning, had a pain in my right arm last few days, thought it was muscle pain. This morning when I woke up, I had cramping pain in my stomach and felt nausea, felt the need to to go to toilet, when I was on the toilet, broke out in a cold sweat, felt light in the head like I was going to pass out, then had an episode of diarrhoea and felt a little better afterwards, felt like I was going to vomit but didn t following episode. i was at the doctors last tues and they put me on klacid for sinusitis for 10 days,I was a bit constipated earlier on in the week, and one morning brought up blood from my chest in my saliva, and trace of blood in my stool, but the doctor on tues did say they believe it could be the constipation causing this. I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.

Hi, I m a 33 yr old female, 117 lbs, and have been on antibiotics for about 1 1/2 weeks due to a sinus infection and bladder infection- I still feel very bad. I feel weak, my heart is beating irregularly, having hard time breathing comfortably, and I have upper back pain and muscle spasms. I feel like an idiot going back to the doctor AGAIN, but I almost feel like I m going to pass out.
