Avatar f tn I feel like I have been sick since October. I have been to the doctor a number of times...always put on antibiotics for a sinus infection. I have been using Zicam for about 2 months now. However, my nose isn't responding as well to it now. Nor do I seem to be getting relief from cold medicine or allergy medicine. I am at my wits end, What do I do now?
Avatar f tn I would like to know the answer to that myself... I am a walking magnet for cold and viruses. But, when taking the pills I could be around anyone sick and not get it. Now I have a cold??? Very good question.
221122 tn?1323011265 One can also add salt (not the iodized stuff) and a pinch of soda (the Arm and hammer anti acid stuff) to make the flush. The idea is to add enough salt to have a saline neutral solution.
Avatar n tn It can be discouraging thinking that there is no way to track down the triggers. It sure would be great to figure it out! I have used zicam for six years. It has worked extrememly well at combating the flu/colds, however I HAVE lost my sense of smell, which is a drag!
Avatar m tn I woke up this morning and the numbness factor was gone on my face but it still feels off compared to the right side. I do plan to stop using the Zicam, while again it might just be an excuse for something bigger I noticed the timing was pretty perfect and possibly the cause. The point of going to a chiropractor was to see if there was nerve damage and I assumed I could ask about the cubital tunnel syndrome as well.
Avatar f tn Scientists have found that vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defenses and that without sufficient intake of the vitamin - the killer cells of the immune system -- T cells -- will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body. The research team found that T cells first search for vitamin D in order to activate and if they cannot find enough of it will not complete the activation process.
1479158 tn?1287598091 I would tell you to try Zicam, but now you have a rash. Go to the doctor instead. If he/she clears the rash, they'll probably give you something for that cold you've had. The back ache?? Probably from coughing so much or totally unrelated.
9101689 tn?1401720149 Ask your Dr about a nasal spray. I have heard some are ok during pregnancy (don't know which ones though). That would at least help with the congestion. Good luck momma and feel better soon!!!
Avatar n tn I have not started meds yet, and by the time i hear anything from this i will have gone to my doctor appoinment in a couple days. Just easier to ask here than worry about it until then. I have had a chronic sore throat for the last couple months. Usually a course of Zicam for a week or so clears it up. It has gotten worse over the last week and i am noticing little white bumps and extra mucus coating the back of my throat. Is this something to worry about? is it treatable?
Avatar f tn Im 38+ 3 and i get induced this coming Tuesday....this week is going by so slowly and now both my husband and my 2 year old daughter have the stomach flu thanks to my disrespectful mother in law Wii apparently doesn't care to use her brain ever! What can i do to help my family get better, and not get sick myself??
Avatar f tn I am wondering this also as my dear husband has handed his cold down to me and my body is trying to get it. I am taking Zicam which if you catch it in time you won't get so severe. I feel funny like this also. I tell people I feel fuzzy. Try Zicam to help your immune syptom.
7502711 tn?1407708573 Hi Ladies, I'm 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant with an an awful case of nasal congestion (i have a cold) and i NEED to know what medicine is safe to take for this I've had this for 3 weeks and last night it got worse I could barely breath so i was up all night. please respond and let me know!!!
427258 tn?1266445242 Im 23wks along and running a low grade fever and have a cold. What is safe to take for post-nasal drop, sore throat and fever? Is Day-Quil safe?
Avatar f tn It's probably not making the withdrawals worse, but it does have a tendency to make you tired and lethargic (somewhat like Clonodine).
612551 tn?1450022175 All through my daughter's high school years she battled allergies and sinus infections. One doctor finally told her to use normal saline spray when congested. It rinses out the area, eases any dryness in there and has no side effects. Since she started doing that during the bad seasons (for her, in the Spring) she has had no sinus infections. She also has no heart issues but you can't get more neutral than NS.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but the symptoms are suggestive of allergies to smoke or air borne allergies.Other possibilities may be recent sinusitis,nasopharyngeal problems, olfactory hallucination {(phantosmia)you detect smells that are not really present in your environment}and disorders in the smell perception centres. In my opinion,a consultation of an ENT specialist or an allergist will be the best.
Avatar n tn I have tried putting Vicks up my nose and menthol cough drops to no avail. Tonight i am going to try sleeping in a recliner to see it keeps the stuffiness away. About an hour after I wake up my sinuses clear up with only Oxymetazoline nasal spray so my nasal congestion has to do with laying down. I also have 2 dehumidifiers in my home (one in my bedroom) and I run the AC at night.
Avatar f tn The other side of his lip was not nearly as bad and just a little scabby. He thought it was because it was from switching to drinking water all day to drinking sweet tea nonstop. I mentioned a cold sore and he was upset that I even mentioned it. When he fingered me four days ago, he did use his saliva as lubrication. This was a week after the appearance of the irritation on his lip. Later that day he was in the bathroom squeezing the bumps and they were like whiteheads.
Avatar m tn I originally posted this in the HIV forum, but I'm told I don't need to worry about that. Still my tongue is REALLY sore. After having oral sex, 5 days later my tongue became sore (felt like I burned it) I could not visibly see a difference. It has gotten progressively worse (as has my cold). I had fatgue, cough, malaise, and the sore tongue.
Avatar m tn 25/m My left face feels off, I suppose the coming off Novocaine feeling is the best way to describe it. It even seems to be affecting the far left part of my tongue. It's all over the left side of my face, my left eye feels less focused but I can see just fine out of it. Though the only real pain I feel is around the left eye bone (above eye and outer corner) it is intermittent and feels migraine like.
Avatar f tn hmmm Since u say ur surgery is 2 weeks out, I would call ur Dr to see how he wants u to be taken care so surgery does not have to be held off yet again. May I ask, what is ur surgery date?
Avatar f tn I would totally ride this out and not worry so much but I have several medical tests/ procedures scheduled for out of town to diagnose some esophageal issues I have been experiencing. If I get a fever, I will need to reschedule and it has taken me MONTHS to get to this point. Between scheduling 5 tests and precedures over 3 days and figuring out childcare, it has been like coordinating a military operation.
1028079 tn?1267065621 There is an OTC sinus medicine that had a warning issued because it caused loss of both taste and smell. I'm trying to remember which one ..... I'll get back to you on that. Lunesta causes a miserable metallic tast. I'm sure others can add in on their experiences.
