Answer

You may be having a type of viral influenza. You can take Nasivion or Decon nasal drops to relieve nasal blockade. Take two drops per each nostril and do not use it for more than twice per day. In addition, take the Levosiz 10mg tablets and Dolo (Paracetamol) 1g thrice per day. Since this is viral  it will take some time to settle and medication will only help symptoms. Take adequate rest and fluids.

Sleepiness and tiredness and use of Animedox

Question

We are married for 4 years and have a one son (2 years). I have a question my wife and me both having a symptoms like sleepiness even though has enough sleep during night , getting tired without doing any work at all , sudden anger for small reasons... we two are very much in to sex life and all time we try to keep it spiced up. but due to those above mentioned issues we are have some problems in keeping up the sex life. About 2 years back I was given a medicine called Animidox for same reasons. My question is can i use the same again for these symptoms ?

Answer

Since Animedox is a mineral supplement, there is no problem in taking it as your tirednes may be due to sub clinical anemia.  However, it is difficult to give an exact diagnosis without a formal assessment. Improving sleep hygiene may be helpful.



In  addition, sleep apnea can be a common cause for day time sleepiness.  Sleep apnea is possible if you are snoring during sleep. During sleep apnea you get low Oxygen levels in the blood due to blocking of respiratory passage. When you get low Oxygen levels then it can make you awake temporarily. This makes sleep less refreshing due to frequent getting ups. 

You can monitor whether you are snoring during sleep by using phone sleep noise recording apps. e.g. Snoreclock for android. Else ask from the partner.

Dull, Throbbing Pain in left side of chest with headaches?

I am a 22 year old female. My pain starts on the left side in my chest, its sudden, moderate, deep feeling, dull and some what throbbing, and it does make it slightly hard to breathe. After a few minutes my throat starts hurting the same way, then i'll get a quarter sized headache slightly above my left eye that throbs too. The pain hasn't been too severe, lasts about 10 minutes, and only happens maybe once a week. At first I thought it was from exercising too much, but I slowed down on that alot and it still does it. I've looked everywhere to try and figure out what it could be and haven't had any luck. The only thing I found was maybe a narrow aorta because my 2 1/2 month old was born with that and I was wondering if it was possible that I have the same thing. 

Clarification

What is the total duration of this problem?

Reply

This has been happening for a couple of months now, not getting better or worse yet. I just feel really tired all the time now. At first I thought it was from moving in with my husbands parents because they fry a lot of food, but I don't eat a lot of it. I try to eat and drink as healthy as I possibly can.

Answer

First simple gastritis need to be considered. Try anti social acid medication and see. Try aludrox or digene two tablets thrice daily. If the problem is not settling then you need to think about other causes. If it is responds to Gastritis then you need to take anti acid medications such as Prilosec (Omeprazole 20mg twice a daily).

Answer

Prodep will help anxiety, but it will initially worsen some of the anxiety symptoms. But you need to take it at least one month to see an effect. It is generally recommended to take benzodiazepine such as Alprazolam for the initial period. 

Prodep have significant sexual side effects and it can cause reduced libido, erectile dysfunction. But a doctor need to balance out side effects and anxiety relief for you.
