Yours Questions

Dear sir,

I am 18 years old Student.  I am suffering from these listed problems from around last 5 or 6 years.

  1. One or sometimes both of the nasals are blocked. It generally blocks when i am sitting still or lying on bed.
  2. Runny and itchy nose along with blocked nasals. The discharge is mostly transparent and thin like water, but sometimes it becomes thick.
  3. Pain in back side of head, specially when moving my head left-right or when bending my body.
  4. Fatigue and tiredness.
  5. Always Watery eyes.
  6. Difficulty in sleeping during night because of congestion in nose.
  7. I am feeling cough in my throat during speaking But Unable to spit it.
  8. Feels like cough is passing from nose to throat inside. If i am not wrong this is called post nasal discharge.
  9. Not always but sometimes, when i comes in contact with smoke or Dust(pollution on roads), Difficulty in breathing occurs.
  • When i takes treatment from Physicians they treat it as common cold and gives medicines for 3,4 days. I get relief from these problems only till medicines are taken.

Please tell me what is the main problem, and what is its treatment. I am a CA student and because of these problems I am unable to concentrate in my studies and other works too.
Please respond me soon. I Want to get rid of these problems.


Sincerely,

Ashish Soni

  1. Dear Ashish,

    You may be suffering from Allergic Rhinitis with a component of Vasomotor rhinitis also.

    Allergic Rhinitis typically manifests as frequent sneezing, watery nasal discharge, blocked nostril especially at night, watering from eyes, heaviness of head etc.

    For this, you need to be on long term anti allergic treatment which is quite simple in form of new generation anti histamines, nasal spray etc. Beside this, we have to rule out any structural problem in nose like deviated nasal septum or nasal polyposis for which a CT scan of sinuses is required. Blood tests will include Complete blood counts including absolute eosinophil counts.

    I hope this helps your query and you need to see an ENT specialist in your area.
