209987 tn?1451939065 Products are available as tinctures, oils, powders, lozenges, capsules, extracts select reliable brands that are 100 percent pure mullein. For congestion and dry cough, try a dropperful of tincture in a little warm water every four hours. Mullein is safe for adults, but do not give mullein to young children for coughs. As with any supplement, pregnant women should discuss mullein with their doctor before use. I will try to find something for children!
Avatar m tn Like you we have been to ER now twice with for server chest pain but EKG and blood work / chest exray are always normal . Any sugesstion on how to get the trap gas off the stomach would be very much greatfull.
Avatar m tn I take Verapamil 240mg for control of benign PVC's of the heart. They took chest and abdominal xrays and nothing other than being packed looked out of the ordinary. Blood work was fine too. Yesterday i stuck to rice, toast and gatorade. had a small amount of nuts and a fiber brownie and a glass of water with metamucil. Same today, but i had chicken soup, a very small amount of fries and oatmeal.
242516 tn?1368227505 Join me to learn about the flu vaccine, antivirals, antibiotics, and alternative preventative measures such as humidifiers, saline drops and sprays, herbal supplements, and honey and find out whether these treatments are suitable for children, the elderly and other high-risk groups. This has been an unusual year in that the flu has been picking up in the last few weeks, and will last into early summer. The symptoms of influenza include cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and fever.
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I would cough so badly I would vomit at one point I was vomiting everyday!! Anyway, I then got a cold and things began to get worse for me. My chest became extremely wheezy and I was having a terrible time sleeping. So back to the doctors I went and this was at the three month stage. He listened to my chest and heard the wheeze and prescribed me asthma steroid spray, along with a steroid nasal spray and antihistimines (for mild hayfever which I suffer with) .
Avatar m tn He may do a chest X-ray also. Any other suggestions? I tested negative for celiac disease. Seems like I'll just have to said for blood tests . If my WBC are normal what do the nodes say? 3 months ago my WBC was 4.6 in a range from 3.8-10.8. Thanks!
Avatar f tn head, and chest felt tingly and my legs cramped. I though for sure I was going to die. Today I have the chest/under arm pain. Adrenalin rushes suck as it is the cause for all of this heartache and confusion. If we can get that under control life would be much less painful. I went through the CHAANGE program for anxiety and it helped dramatically! I am only taking clonazepan occasionally as I understand what is happening to my body - the adrenalin rush (am I spelling that correctly?).
Avatar n tn i had echo done on my heart--normal chest xray--normal blood tests--normal (still waiting for the results of the allergy test though) so like the other post said...i feel better about my heart, and my health but i still cant breathe. Pulmonary function tests where the doctor said "it could be asthma, very mild though" he prescribed singulair and an albuterol inhaler for before i run. sometimes taking the inhaler can make me lightheaded. so i dont like using it.
544292 tn?1268886268 Sometimes, in war, you have to lay in your foxhole and do nothing but wait in silence. There's time for action and there's a time for inaction. To know the difference is good. It is wise. At the moment I'm beating myself up badly for not being able to move and certainly NOT being able to drive in this state! Come on now; I don't want to hurt anyone because my driving abilities are impaired. Let's act with intelligence shall we?
429155 tn?1205676864 Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
Avatar m tn My GP cannot refer me for a CT scan to monitor the bronchiectasis and so if my chest gets any worse, I will have to get a referral to a chest consultant for a CT scan through him. Things are a bit different in the UK with our NHS as funding is becoming more limited and so GP's will only refer a patient for a treatment if it is cost-effective. The average person in the UK doesn't carry health insurance as the NHS has always provided a good service in the past.
Avatar n tn We tried those beeswax candles and are now working on more homeopathic remedies. If I ever find something that works for me, I will post it and please, please, please do likewise if you find something that works for you as well. Thanks!!
Avatar n tn Hello. My fiance has been suffering with eustation tube dysfunction for a little over 6mths. now. We have tried numerous decongestants and nasal sprays as well as a round of steroids. His ENT did allergy testing on him, however, he did not have any significant allergies. Our last resort was to have PE tubes placed. This only made his symptoms worse and they took them out after a couple of weeks. Suprisingly after they took the tubes out and his ears were healing, he was symptom free.
Avatar n tn Makes sense. I broke down and took two rounds of antibiotics for a recent bout of sinus pain and congestion,and sicker since, unable to work, fatigued with head pressure,had swollen nodes in the back of my neck/head that were sore. Never had that in my life. I went to a natural doctor who has put me on a detoxifying shake with many nutrients that clear the system out. Also homeopathic drops to put in water to build my resistence up to allergens.
Avatar n tn By Sunday night, ,my chest was tight and I could not breath for about 2hrs. I was better on Monday, but then I noticed I keep trying to get a full breath and now I cant stop yawning. I went to the Pulmonologist Tuesday. All breathing tests were normal. I had an EKG and it was normal. This is getting annoying and really bothering me.
Avatar n tn Hi Poog76, I posted an answer before, but it doesn't look like it made it. Maybe I wasn't logged in. Anyway, look for "probiotics" by UDE. These worked for me. The specific type was for "advanced adults". You should be able to find it in health food stores, or else call around and see who might have it. These are pricey ($35), and others willl likely work, but why mess with a good thing until you are feeling better. Good luck.
Avatar n tn then again about 2 weeks later she came down with an ear infection, more chest congestion. She was put on amox. again. After being on the meds the 2nd time for 7 days she then got a red solid rash on her lower back and on the front where her leg meets her private area. The doc said to take her off the med until he saw her. By the time he saw her the rash dissipated to little spots and totally left from the front area.
Avatar n tn This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn It will be around for a week or so, then disappear for several months. Seems related to sinus congestion. I use a neti pot and that helps some.
Avatar n tn remedy and taking CVS brand of the Severe Sinus/Cold Remedy isn't working. Thus, I googled 'natural remedies for opening up the eustachian tubes'. Haven't found anything that I'd like to try yet. I have no pain, just the feeling like I'm talking w/ a steel pot over my head! I hope my story and remedy helps someone out there. My sister in NJ had the same problem as did my neighbor so I can't find any 'pattern' for it. MAYBE the weather, but even THAT doesn't always seem to be the case.
Avatar n tn March 4th so we will see. I am posting my updates since I think it is important for other people looking for some sort of answers to see what they may end up going through.
Avatar n tn here i for the last 6 months i have had itchy eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar n tn My primary doctor did a CBC, which indicated that I had elevated RF, WBC, and Sed Rate, but everything else was within normal ranges. She did chest x-ray for sarcoidosis, tested me for Lupus all test were negative. She prescribed pain medication. In 2005 I started having pain and ringing in both my ears. I was diagnosed with hearing loss and I currently wear hearing aids.
Avatar n tn now they look flabby and sagging with wrinkles. I am in a panic. Have a doctors appointment for Friday. Yes, I am fair, Yes, I have been sunburnt many times over the years. My mother had wrinkles also, but to have this come on so very sudden, I don't know what to think. As far as periomenopause, it sounds like this shouldn't happen so suddenly and usually the elasticity is after menopause. I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while.
Avatar n tn It does not itch. I am soooo worried. I do not have health iinsurance- are there any home made remedies for this ailment?????????
