smoking will worsen your lungs & you require hot water steam inhalation without adding vicks 2-3 times daily for minimum 20 minutes.

I have a severe sticky mouth , and white back part of tounge this has became very bothersome within the last 4-5 months Here is a list of things I have been through this year prior to loss of taste and smell teeth extracted jan 4th 2013, extremely bad sinus infection in late march, pinched sciatic nerve in April, for which I was taking 60 mg a day of prednisone for almost 2 months , and also 900 mg a day of neurontin . I now have lost my taste and smell and have seen both family dr and ENT . Neither has said positively why I lost my taste or smell, I have problem swallowing food as it seems to stick to the roof of my mouth and after gumming the food it becomes gummy and sticky feeling which causes me to want to spit it out . Note I ahve not been able to wear denture to eat with as they come loose and fall out I have had relines done in July , they still would not hold long enough to chew food with even using adhesives Also my tonsils has been infected white spot removed from left tonsil, ENT took byopsy said non cancer . Now my right tonsil is getting a white spot too. My family Dr originally treated me for 3 weeks for a oral yeast infection I asked ENT about yeast infection He said Possibly that is whatI had. But offered no advise or recommendation to ease my dry sticky mouth.Or loss of taste and smell I also have been using biotene mouth rinse, It does not seem to help much if at all. I also have noticed dry eyes and I was also told in May I had emphezema signs showing in lungs. I also am coughing up gritty feeling phlegm after eating and my lips seems sticky too but I was just reading about sjogren,s syndrome and was wondering if I might possibly have that. Any advise would be greatly appreciated Even if I knew what kind of Dr to go see, I just seem to be at a dead end with this problem thou as Family DR and ENT both doesn t seem concerned at all with my situation Thanks for your time to read and answer

I have been sick for 4 days with a bad sinus infection, blowing my nose constantly. This am I woke up with pain in my chest below my left breast. It feels like a pulled muscle and is sore to the touch. Could this be caused by blowing my nose so vigorously or should I be concerned?

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

About a month ago I heard a loud noise in my right ear and got dizzy. Then two weeks later I had upper respiratory and my right ear looked irritated. I was prescribed z pack. Then two weeks after that I felt I couldnt swallow, my skin on my neck was stretching, pressure in my face, and dizzy. I went back to the doctor and he said both ears were irritated and I probably had sinus infection, even though I had no mucus. He prescribed amoxicillin and advil congestion relief. The pressure in my head at times was uncomfortable to a point where I had to look in the mirror and make sure my face was not disformed. I went back a few days, even though the other symptoms went away and he ordered an MRI. All came back normal except for a maxillary mucus retention cyst in my right sinus. The doctor said it was very small and should not be causing all this. Last night I went to the er because, the pressure in my nose for the past two days makes me feel as if I am not able to breathe. My right ear and head are numb when I feel the pressure in my right nostril. No matter what I take no mucus or flem is coming out and I get panicky when I feel the pressure and numbness. I have to say the pressure is not as intense these past few days as it was last week but still uncomfortable and scary. The ER doctor just ordered claritin but when I called my doctor that said it would dry me up more and he gave me sudafed which I am now taking. also was on lexapro (2,5mg) for a few years and took a year or so to wean off it correctly. I have been off of it for over two months. Could this be related? I have an appointment with an ENT this week.

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal? I also suffer from chronic sinusitis which doesn t help as I get a mucus build up on that side of my throat most days
