allergies

Avatar f tn Post nasal drip is not associated with cystic fibrosis but can be seen secondary to sinusitis, as upper respiratory tract infections are common in this case. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, allergy shots can be associated with flu like symptoms. Other wise it can be a sign of upper respiratory tract infection or sinus infection secondary to influenza virus A and B, parainfluenza, coronavirus and human metapneumovirus. This can be complicated by bacterial infections. If bacterial infection is suspected then appropriate antibiotics will help. Otherwise pain killers against prescription will give you quiet a relief for your headache.
Avatar n tn Indoor exposure to black mold can cause upper respiratory tract symptoms such as sore throat and cough with or without wheeze in otherwise healthy people. Ideally you should consult a chest specialist like you did. A comprehensive investigation including CBC, throat swab, allergic tests, X-rays, examination with a scope in throat, spirometry etc is required keeping all the points in mind.

Avatar f tn It is hypothesized that URTIs (upper respiratory tract infections) can result in parosmia because of damage to olfactory receptors. Exposure to harmful solvents has also been linked to parosmia. It is usually associated with rhinosinusitis, head trauma, viral infection, or oral problems. It frequently disappears with successful treatment of the above mentioned conditions. For this you need to get an examination done from an ENT specialist.
Avatar m tn Is there a normal course of action for a patient complaining of an acute exposure to an unknown noxious gas/fume? Symptoms include irritation to the upper respiratory tract, watering eyes, noxious exhaled gas after exposure, possible lesions on lung. What should a doctor do to investigate this patient? What lab tests could be performed? What treatments might aid the body in ridding itself of related toxicity? Thank you!
Avatar f tn 75nmol/L, a level which is associated with an increased incidence of upper respiratory tract infection. Low 25(OH) vitamin D levels were related to a darker skin, increased BMI and larger assessed tonsil size. The association of larger tonsil size with lower 25(OH) vitamin D status needs further evaluation but offers a potential explanation why black and Hispanic children are more likely than white children to have (adeno) tonsillectomy for snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea.
Avatar n tn The beating cilia sweeping the mucus along the respiratory tract helps to clear the respiratory tract of any debris, or any organisms which may be present. When the lining of the sinuses is at all swollen, the swelling interferes with the normal flow of mucus. Trapped mucus can then fill the sinuses, causing an uncomfortable sensation of pressure and providing an excellent environment for the growth of infection-causing bacteria.
Avatar f tn What you describe suggests that, aside from asthma, your overall problem is not one of lower respiratory tract respiratory disease. That, however does not rule out the possibility that you could have upper respiratory disease, infection or inflammation, despite the ENT having found "nothing" and this could explain the headaches, migraines and dizziness.
Avatar f tn I think allergy can be ruled out. Carcinoid is a tumor which grows slowly in the intestinal tract OR in ovaries OR in lungs. Symptoms depend on which substance tumor secretes, but these flashes are quite typical. Well, if you think, flashes are connected with heartburn, than all this may be from reflux. It seems so from your first post. Flashes in the upper chest, spider nevuses on the face, occasional diarrhea or difficult breathing are main symptoms of carcinoid.
Avatar f tn Possible side effects include hypertension, arthralgia, muscle spasm, dizziness, and even upper respiratory tract infection. It is best that you talk to her doctor for proper management. Factors such as her symptoms, medical history, overall health and results of other tests are important considerations. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Streptoccocal infection is the most common bacterial infection and can cause nasal symptoms too. Indoor exposure to black mold can cause upper respiratory tract symptoms such as sore throat and cough with or without wheeze in otherwise healthy people. Ideally you should consult a chest specialist. A comprehensive investigation including CBC, throat swab, allergic tests, X-rays, examination with a scope in throat, spirometry etc is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn All the symptoms that you are having(sinus pressure,pressure behind ears ,post nasal drip,) are symptoms of chronic sinusitis.Sinusitis can be caused by infections of the upper respiratory tract,allergies and deviated nasal septum . Treatment of sinusitis involves Oral antibiotics (usually 10 to 14 days). They are to be taken on prescription. You can use an over-the-counter (OTC) decongestant combined with an anti-inflammatory analgesic (pain reliever) like Ibuprofen.
Avatar n tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include GI infections, inflammations, GERD, ulcers, chest wall inflammation, costochondritis, causes related to the respiratory tract, pleuritis etc. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan with her treating pediatrician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn On a broader scale,cough in children can be due to air borne allergies like allergic rhinitis, sinus problems (for example sinus infection),post nasal drip, esophageal reflux of stomach contents,asthma,lower respiratory tract infections and inflammations like bronchitis and bronchiolitis and upper respiratory tract infections. What sort of surgery are the doctors planning to do?It can be a surgery for sinus drainage which can result in dry irritating cough.
Avatar m tn Hello, A blocked Eustachian tube usually results from upper respiratory tract infection, otitis media or sinusitis. You can try simple maneuvers like act of swallowing since it activates the muscles in the back of the throat which help open the Eustachian tube. Any activity that promotes swallowing can help open the Eustachian tube, for example, chewing gum, drinking, or eating. Yawning is also very effective because it is a stronger muscle activator.
