nasal blockage rhinits

i once had a flu 5-6 yrs ago..after which i started to use nasal decongestant....but after the flu was gone my nose still felt blocked....so i
continued to use the decongestant...and became addicted to it...i used it for 1 yr...then i showed to a ENT specialist...who said that i
suffered from lower turbinate hypertrophy and performed a cautry procedure...as a result of which there was no improvement....and i again started
using the nasal decongestant spray....i continued to use this for 2 more years....then again consulted an ENT and upon his advice i left the
nasal spray and i experienced some relief....but again the problem kept coming back with various degrees of severity...since 2002 i have not
used nasal spray but i keep facing this problem....i have been able to manage because one nostril is usually open....
i have taken anti histamines...but no effect...

i have taken homeo treatment for 1 week previously but no benefit..
currently also undergoing treatment but i don't know the name of medicines...used for 4 days..no benefit yet..
i haven't suffered any major disease before..




SYMPTOMS

-nose blocked...no sneezing,water eyes,nasal discharge or headache...occasional dryness only...
-alternate sides...or both sometimes..either one is closed(80-90%) most of time
intermittent....blockage is decreased sometimes..
-usually...right nostril closed when i am laying down....but when i awake and walking,sitting during the day....either one can open or close
-pressure on face,forehead,nose and throbbing when bending down...prostrating while i pray
-blockage decreases when i do exertion,walk briskly...while it clears nose becomes very little bit watery...
-blockage worsens when i lay down...irrespective of face up or down...it remains same..
-blockage worsens when i am sitting......
-i could not find any particular weather in which blockage is more or less....
sometimes i feel that it feels a little better when i am in clean,natural,rural environment...
-i can't associate any state of mind either...it happens in all states of minds...
-i am an introvert...reserved personality
-i sleep late at night....sometimes i get less sleep...but no association that i can find with the symptoms.....




i searched throught software on this site...and the result came showed some choice of medicine and recommended remedies included
pulsatilla,phosphorus,kali-bi etc....

i would like to know which remedies to use and how much dosage with what potency...

and if two remedies cover my complete symptoms ,can i take both or only one is to be taken...?

gastral-intestinal...not particularly...just occasional constipation sometimes or effort needed to stool...nowadays its ok...


using an antihistamine for nose..the chemical's name is montellukast


i am pakistani..food includes..
wheat bread,chicken curry,rice,pulses,peas etc..all cooked in moderate spices(not too much spice)..i eat less green vegetables...take 2,3 meals a day...don't eat anything in between the meals..sometimes milk


haven't been able to isolate any food drink which aggravates the situation...bcoz all the time there is no change when i eat....


hair ok...in my family males start losing hair after 17-18..my hair also falling but minimal amount...no white hair..some dandruff


i have glasses for seeing far..the number of both sides is-1.25...it was -0.75 4yrs ago.


fingernails in perfect condition

SKIN

i have had skin problems before....i had lots of acne vulgaris 6-7 years ago...my teen years...the acne were on my back,upper arms,upper portion of legs.i.e both in front(thighs)and at the back side below buttock and on buttocks also..
these used to itch a lot... a skin specialst gave me antibiotics.....at that time i used that for 2 or 3 months....but not a great deal of improvement...
then as i grew older....the acne decreased by themselves.. since 4 yrs there has not been much change in acne level..

currently i have some acne/pimple on triceps side of upper arms,at my upper back,and thighs,waist...the itching comes and goes ...i haven't tried to find what triggers it..its not polyester or artificiall fibres..


ANOTHER VERY WEIRD PROBLEM WITH MY SKIN FOR WHICH NO TREATMENT RECEIVEd...

SYMPTOMS

1.. i feel hot during winter..usually due to mild physical exertion (walking in sun,or other physical activity even in indoors) .the skin becomes red and very thin pimple type things appear on my arms and torso...i feel intense heat..itching starts all over my body.(every part)..i have to take off all warm clothing and i usually
put water on my body..sit under fan..after 2 to 5 minutes ..the situation subsides and i become normal again....i get very itch in my head scalp..


2. when i eat something spicy/hot...in winter or summer...the reaction is limited .i feel hot and itching starts in my scalp....none other things as mentioned in 1 above...


this is the problem i have been facing ... started roughly around same time as acne,...before nose blockage..
for a few months in 1998 i had pain in my knees...but after 2-3 months it was gone automatically without any medicine

all these happened in the perioed from 1999 to 2001...my age at that time was...14-17

REASON FOR TREATMENT
having tried allopaths...i feel uncomfortable again and again with my nose problem..i want to get rid of it once in for all..


COMPLAINTS 1

LOCATION nose
SENSATION blockage,congestion
TIME anytime...
AGGRAVATE laying down,stooping,bending
ACCOMPANYING congestion,pressure,throbbing on face,forhead,nose when stooping,bending forward,

COMPLAINT 2


LOCATION skin..all over body...more in head scalp
SENSATION.. hot burning,itching
TIME anytime..hot temperature...and spicy hot food
AGGRAVATE heat,spicy hot food
ACCOMPANYING---




AILMENTS IN FAMILY
high blood pressure
diabetes
urninary problems

DIGESTIVE

get gas a lots of times from eating, pules,peas,apples...
constipation sometimes...stool passes little by little ..in steps with effort when i have problem...mostly its ok..

PERSIPIRATION
sweat less than others...most sweat on my torso...not that bad smell..

SLEEP
sleep late at night..due to bad time table....usually go to bed when i am sure that i will fall asleep...
first i lay on my side for few minutes...after which i lay back upwards..and one leg stretched and one folded on side...like making a 4..

SEASON AND TEMPERATURE
i like spring season,and autumn season..with comfortable temperature,a little on the cooler side and wind blowing...also like cloudy weather more than sunny weather..
partly cloudy/shade and partly sun is best...

RELAX

i talk with others,watch tv

PHOBIA FEARS
nothing special... i just hate noise a lot..i want things to be calm and quiet












WORST THING

is deterioration in family .a possible breakup of family


CHILDHOOD special features..i mean bad things that i remember...


1-youngest,other brothr sisters are 5 yrs or older than me..so not too much play with them
2-my father lived abroad between me in ages from 7-10 and 11-13..
3-played alone a lot of times
4-saw some fighting,quarrelling between adults...
5-felt lonely,ignored a lot of times when i was young...no one would listen as i was the youngest in family...that still happens today
6-was made fun off for being cowardly bcoz i wouldn't do daring things like climbing walls and stuff like that
7-crying over little things..like girls do...till the age of 13...after that i never cried for petty things


CRITICAL PRERIOD

between the agest of 13 and 16 ...i lived abroad..bangladesh...during that time i lived an isolated life...no social interaction...watched tv...didnt play anthing and sat at home all day...i got most of these diseases/illneses/symptoms during that time...i had only 1 friend there...
the lazy nature and habbit of doing nothing,watching tv,no physical play,and not feeling like going out with others have developed from that time...i believe that period to be the reason for lack of my social skills..

SCHOOL AND COLLEGE LIFE

early school was fine...middle school onwards till now....haven't stayed at one place...so haven't been able to make long term friends..
was good in school and college...good good marks..
the acne/pimple condition had improved a lot 4 yrs ago....since then the condition is there but its at a very small scale compared to 6 yrs ago


DREAMS

dont see many dreams...or if i see..i don't remembers..
one dream that used recurred again and again was that...i used feel in my dream that my teeth had become loosened and would fall even wheni touched them with my tongue
NATURE AND PERSONALITY





ENERGY LEVEL average..1 to 10=====>3-4 most of time.... sometimes it crosses 5..

CONFIDENCE..scale 1-10 ======================>inconfident...sometimes i am confident.....4 or 5




NATURE


lazy
want to be involved in physical activity but can't do due to PROCASTINATION
ready to listen to others
curious about new things..have lots of general knowldege..
hesitant..in doing anything
lack some social skills,hence not fit in ..with others of same age group...
people say i am intelligent,,i believe this to be somewhat true
when i feel angry on things,people.....i don't do anything...like shouting,fighting etc etc....i just curse quietly...
i have patience...
not adventurous...although would like to be...
would like company and friends...but can't make many friends..
LACK OF WILLPOWER...no initiative,action..although i make plans all the time...i can't execute..
like humour and try to make jokes
help and guide others wherever i can...
do feel depressed at times....mostly due to family problems...
feel strongly toward family...don't want anything bad to happen..
feel responsibilty for things that i am not supposed to be responsible for..
don't want to be burden on others at all...even my parents....want to be independent but take care of others..
pragmatic and realistic approach...i don't believe in dreams,aspirations,goals and targets..
pessimist......because its better to expect bad things....if something good happens it feels much better and if something bad happens it doesn't hurt as much



FOOD

sometimes have craving for cold sweet food,and rich chicken,rice...and fruit
do not like........very spicy,anyting hot,vegetables
do not get too much thirsty.....
water intake 5 glasses appx
as mentioned before....no aggravation or relief in case of nose problem with any food....
itchy skin,scalp is initiated by spicy,hot food...
