Dr. Kadwa pls help - Chronic Sinus inflammation and Chest Congestion

Dear Dr Kadwa,

From last 2 years I have been suffering from Chronic Sinus inflammation and I have tried various medications incluiding Ayurvedic and Yoga. As a result I have some relief but for last couple of months the situation is not improving. Here are my symptoms.

1. Feel pressure on my forehead above eye areas and eyelids. When I wear glasses, it puts pressure on eye areas and behind eye areas. I have checked my vision twice and everything is normal. They said it is due to Sinus pressure only.

2. When I speak for a long time on phone or discuss withe somebody, I feel pressure/tightness on my forehead as well. Also it makes little breathlessness.

3. Earlier I had a bad and continuous Nasal blockages ( any one nostril ) but now it is less frequently happens particuarly when I sleep in night. And when the weather becomes cloudy or temperature goes down. Again the blockage is less frequent. I also have white and clean mucous discharge whenever the weather changes. I believe my sinus infection is gone but the symptom remains due to inflammation only.

4. I can breath well using two of nostils now ( much better than earlier ) but I still feel some congestion in my nostrils and is not compltely 100% free.

5. The same is with my Chest Congestion which leads to Chest tightness and discomfort in chest but no breathing problem. This triggers more when the weather is cloudy and cold. I feel very uneasy due to chest tightness.

6. I also feel shortage of breath when I speak for long time or climb stairs in my building. And this makes me many time feel tired even if I am fine. I don't know if this is chronic bronchitis.

I went for an Asthma test one year back and everything is found to be normal. I don't smoke and don't take alcohol. I have been doing Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom and Bhastrika for 30min everyday except the situation when I feel little sick or too much tired. Also due to some congestion in my nostrils I believe I am not able to perform Anulom vilom well.

I think I am improving but with a snail's speed and I need your help. I will appreciate if you have any suggestion.

Thank you from bottom of my heart.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I forgot to mention, I don't cough much. I cough 3-4 times a day to clear my chest. The cough is without any mucous kind of dry cough. I always feel as if something is stuck in my chest/lungs and congestion. This leads to me discomfort and uneasiness as well.

I had frequent post nasal drip and stuffy nose in the past. But that has been substantially reduced. But still I have to clear my throat frequently.

As I mentioned before, the pressure remains on the eyelid and the area above it on forehead. The pressure was severe in the past but it reduced after doing NETI with some herbal liquid. But since last 2 months it is not reducing further and I experiencce the pressure more between 11am and 3pm during day time.

Due to this pressure around my eye areas and forehead I experience little blurry vision as well.

Thank you for responding. I will take these medicines as advised and keep you posted on the progress.

Dear Dr Kadwa,

Regarding Calcarea Carb 200C, I believe 2 pills means 2 pellets. Am I right ?

I have also got Calc Phos 6x in Soft tablets instead of pellet form. Should I take 3 Soft tablets as a single dose ?

Let me also say, the constant congestions for last 2 years in my nostrils has affected that I can barely smell something. And once or twice in a day my nostril get blocked though not as bad as earlier. The pressure on my forehead and above the eyes are such that, I feel the nerves are tensed inside and something is stiff and tight inside.

Thank you again.

I thought of posting the update here on the progress.

So far I don't see any improvement. Here are the symptoms that still prevail

1. Due to clear and white Nasal Discharge my nostrils remains little stuffy. And that makes me not able to breath 100% freely. However, the post nasal drip seems to be reduced little bit, though it was not that prominent earlier. And the nasal discharge is not prominent and I don't have to clean my nose for that frequently but once in few hours. But it makes my nostril little stuffy and inflammed.

2. Chest congestion is still there and since weather is fine here I don't have chest tightness or stiffness. Shortage of brath is still there when I climb stairs or try to do some work physically for a while such as lifting things etc.

3. I forgot to add earlier, my left eyelid ( the entire area just above the eye ) remain Swollen little bit. But it is not like puffy eyes. When I press on this area I could feel little pain because of Sinus blockage I think. The Right eyelid is also swoleen but hardly noticeable. This swellen is there since last 2 years.

4. Because of #3, I still feel pressure on my eyes and area around it including top portion of the nose, when I wear my glasses. That is why when I am in home I don't wear but when I have to go out I have to. The pressure increases if I keep wearing for more than an hour or so.

Please suggest should I continue what you have suggested earlier ?

Dear Dr. Kadwa,

For some reason I mis-read your prescription and took

3 Pellets of Kali Mur and 3 Soft tablets of Calc Phos , two times a day. That is a does in morning and and another dose in evening.

Have I taken overdose ? What I should do now ? Please suggest.

There is nothing like overdose in homeopathy. So don't worry and start taking the dose as advised.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Here is the report after I took the prescription for 15days.

Assuming before taking the medicine the symptoms were 100%, here is an update what I feel about the symptoms.

1. Pressure on Frontal head ( Frontal Sinus area ) reduced by 20-30%.

2. Post Nasal Drip reduced by 15-20%. But if the weather changes I get Post Nasal drip every hour and I have to clear my throat.

3. No sign of improvement for Chest congestion and tightness that I feel when the weather changes. I still have dry cough 5-6 times. The cough is little lengthy and I could feel the congestion.

4. While wearing the Glasses, the pressure around nose and eye area has been reduced by 20-30%

5. Clear and white nasal discharge reduced to about 50%. This is a good improvement.

6. Nasal congestion and stuffyness has been reduced by about 40-50% I beleive. But still I feel both my nostrils have congestions.

So please let me know what should be the next step ? By the way I have been advised by another doctor to take Kali Iodatum 30c twice a day ( 4 pallets ) and I have been taking that since last 7 days along with what you have prescribed.

While I feel the sinus things are getting improved, but I am more worried about long dry cough ( I urge to have 5-6 times a day) and chest congestion.

Lastly, shortage of breath is still there when I do some physical work. Sometime in night while sleeping I also feel soffocation in my chest which wakes me up. But not every night. I always feel some kind of layers is stuck in my chest.

Pls. suggest. Thank you for you advices.

Please take Spongia Toasta 200 in the morning and evening for 3 days and report back after 7 days.
The instructions on dosage and restrictions made earlier hold good.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Dear Dr. Kadwa,


Should I continue the other medicines as well ? If so for how many more days ?
[message edited by pras1972 on Mon, 16 Apr 2012 15:08:31 BST]
 
pras1972 7 years ago
Please don't take other medicines for the time being. So you should take only Spongia Toasta 200.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Dear Doctor,

So far I have completed 4 doses of Spongia Toasta 200. As I had reported earlier about chest suffocation, I wanted to update you more about it.

Last night was kind of more diffucult for me to sleep. I had suffocation with One nostril blocked. This is what happens at night ( not every night). And this happens with One of my nostril get blocked and then suffocation started in my chest with tightness. This causes waking me up several times last night. Worst than previous nights. However, in morning I feel lots of relief.

Earlier when I had sinus infection I used to have one of my nostril always blocked. But I had hardly suffocation and chest tightness feeling at night while sleeping though I used to have chest congestion and shortage of breath.

This chest tightness and suffocation things have started 4-5 months back in my 2years of suffering of Chest and Sinus congestions.

One more thing, I many times feel 'Cold Air' sensation in my chest while breathing. I used to feel so in my nostril as well but not any more but only in Chest presently.

The chest congestion is still there. I am continuing your prescription and keep you posted once I complete the 6th dose as suggested by you.

This is for your information.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Here is the update after taking the Spongia Tosta for 3 days and reporting you after 7 days :

I feel the chest congestion and tightness has been reduced around 30%. I do see some improvement but not fully.

Though I had completely stopped the other presciptions as per your suggestion, The nasal discharge has almost stopped. However, I do feel congestion may be due to inflamation in my nostils. That is said while breating I don't find my nostils pasages 100% free and smooth. I experience tightness in my nostrils if I try to breath little hard.

Post Nasal Drip I get now less often compared to my earlier situation. However, the pressure around Eyes are stil there and it becomes more when I wear glasses.

I do have dull pressure on my forehead and that propagates to the head. I mean the situation is same which I mentioned about earlier with little bit improvement.

Please let me know what is next. Thank you.
 
pras1972 7 years ago
Please don't take any remedies for 3-4 days and see how it goes.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Do you mean another 3-4 days?

It is already 4 days since I stopped Spongia Toasta and all other prescriptions.
 
pras1972 7 years ago
Yes, another 3-4 days.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Here is the update after 3-4 days.

I hardly find any improvement compared to my last reporting on chest congestion. The weather here fluctuating and sometime it rains, cloudy and in that situation I feel little more chest congestion.

I am providing you here a sound file, how it sounds when I cough. Please note that this is a demo only (where the cough is not spontaneous but I triggered myself for recording purpose) to show the condition of my chest congestion or blockage or whatever.

And hence I feel tightness, shortage of breath and uneasiness in my chest. Please click the followign sound file I have uploaded on one of my friend's website. Once you hear it, then let me know I will remove it from the website.

http://www.aparts.org/democough.WAV

Please suggest. And when I cough like this, pressure propagates to top surface of my head. I am also carrying the Kapalbhati and Anulom vilom regularly for 15-20min.

Please suggest.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Did you hear the sound of cough ? Should I remove the file now ?

Also I found the remedies same other than Natrum Sulph , as earlier. Is that going to help?
 
pras1972 7 years ago
Yes. You may remove the file. The remedies are expected to give relief.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

I didn't find Calc Phos 6x but found Calc Phos 6c. Will this work for now?
 
pras1972 7 years ago
Please don't take calc phos 6c, take only natrum sulph 6x in the morning and evening.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
Dear Dr. Kadwa,

OK I will take only Natrum Sulph. I have the following symptoms still continuing. Please suggest

1. Post Nasal Drip occurs every 2-3 hours. It has been reduced though, compared to when I started the remedies in the beginning.

2. Now the congestion in Nostrils remain in the lower area ( The Maxillary Sinus area). When I get up in the morning I find rubbery yellowish mucus coming out of this area when I blow my nose couple of times to clear the congestion. And because of this I still experience one nostril blocked fequently throughout the days and while sleeping but not always.

3. The Frontal sinus pressure is now much and much better though little bit pressure still remains. And When I wear glasses for more than 1-2 hours I feel more pressure. Please note that earlier I used to have this pain aggravated when I wear glasses for 15-20min. So condition is definitely improving. But please suggest to speed up the recovery.

4. The ethmoid sinus area also get more pressure when I wear glasses. And this makes my eyes burning sensation and irritation until I take out my glasses. And the burning sensation lasts for one hour or so after taking out the glasses as well.

Please suggest.
