pankaj/girilal....sinusitisDear Pankaj/ Girilal,
I have been suffering from recurrent long spells of coughs mostly dry. they all began with a fever(high grade) and the cough went on for weeks together.
many courses of antibiotics and other medications...the only noticable difference is what used to occur 2/3 times a year is now occuring more frequently 3 times in six months (with hardly a breather in between!). it was diagnosed as acute bronchitis earlier.... and this time some 5 days back i had fever(104/103 for two days, now its around 101/100) with nasal discharge and cough with phlegm too.. the cough is bad as always rattles up the body and there is breathlessness and dizziness(till the fever n a day or two more mayb) this time the pulmonary dept. head got the x-rays done and it was diagnosed as acute(severe) maxillary sinusitis....along came a prescription of antibiotics etc.
would like your advise on this as i want this to be treated from the root not from one dose of antibiotic to another with lesser interval between 2 such attacks each time.
earlier instances have not had nasal discharge or too much phlegm...mostly dry cough, continuous for weeks.

moddy last decadeThis thread continues beneath the following ad.Give details:
Age ? What illnesses you have been thru from child hood till now ?
Do you begin to cough when you go out from warm room to a cold area out of the house??
Breathlessness..a.t a particular time in 24 hour span??
Meanwhile ...start with bio-chemics:
Ferrum Phos 6x and Kali Mur 6x ...four tabs of each four times a day. Can be taken together.

condition aggravates in going from warmer area to colder area generally, but right now i've been coughing throughout irrespective of warm/cold.
this time i was feeling very very cold during fever (which is not normally the case). i never use heaters in my room but this time had to, along with two very warm quilts.
as regards illnesses frm childhood...i've never had this kind of persistent , recurrent coughing ever except for the last two/three years.
there have been fevers on and off (yes always on the higher side 103/104...my kids are like that too)
no major illnesses except for what i remember very vaguely...the onset of diptheria due to which i had to miss my participation at the RD parade (NCC)i dont have details on that.
breathlessness occurs only during these kind of attacks otherwise i'm fine. and there is no particular time, it could be due to exhaustion, in crowded areas, due to coughing.last night i just cudnt sleep so at 3 in the morn did a bit of pranayam that eased me a bit, only then i could fall asleep.
please let me know if some more info is needed. meanwhile i'll call for the bio-chemics and the anti-biotics ;) The pulmonary specialist told me i dont have a choice but to take the antibio to get to the root!
right now my temperature is almost normal...but totally drained of energy!
moddy last decadeOh yes i did have chicken pox once when i was around 14 or so.
today right now on the sixth day...temp is 99.8. The first two days it hovered between 104/103..took only crocin. next two days was 102/101. yeasterday101+/-
