The Head And Right Eye Feels Depressed (severe) Accompanied By A Cold?
, introduce my name is Abud, age 43 years, height 178 cm, weight 76 Kg. Right now I have a cold (runny nose and snotty voice) for 2 months and it hasn’t disappeared. This complaint is also accompanied by a right head that feels heavy (not a painful headache) and eyes that also feel heavy. The sensation is like being depressed but not great. It just feels uncomfortable and sometimes it feels “floating”. Colds are also not like the common cold that sneezes and coughs constantly. Just runny nose all the time and more often runny nose or clogged from the right nostril as well. If I may tell the story initially, I run intermittent fasting starting last October 2018. I started coughing up phlegm on the third week of November 2018. On the second week of December 2018 I also had a cold. So at the same time I coughed and had a cold from then on. During December 2018 I began to feel headaches (pain) in several parts of the head. But the appearance is only briefly brief (lost arise) and sometimes vague. Around the first week of January 2019, the cough began to subside. And in the second week of January 2019 the cough was completely gone. I also stopped intermittent fasting. But the cold (runny nose) is still ongoing. During that time I also felt unwell several times (body temperature rose a little) but that also only appeared and disappeared on its own. From the end of November 2019, I also only took free medication to reduce flu symptoms and cough occasionally. On the third week of January 2019, I did not feel unwell (a slight fever), but it did not disappear on my own as usual, so I took panadol. And around January 2019, I also began to feel my right head and heavy / depressed eyes, as I told at the beginning, only the headache was very pressing. Finally I went to see an internist and was given an allergy medicine, inflammation, runny nose and antibiotics. Fever and headaches are slightly reduced but the runny nose hasn’t disappeared either. Finally I went to the second internal medicine doctor. He was examined by a lab for blood and thank God good results. I was given another type of antibiotic and allergy medicine too. thank God after that the fever disappeared and the headaches were getting less. But the runny nose continues. To overcome the fever, because I was suspicious of my teeth, I also went to the oral surgeon to remove the remaining tooth roots and felt a little swollen in the lower right molars at the end of January 2019 ago. After all the effort that I did that, right now I still runny nose and nose, and my right head and right eye still feels heavy and pressing. The resulting snot is not too thick and the color is also white (not yellow or green). Several times I felt the right ear in pain but it feels very rare. I also still swim once a week or once 2x and this activity I just started mid-January 2019. I smoke and is quite active (a pack can be for a day or two days).
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Complaints in the form of colds, pain around the eyes, headaches, and nasal congestion are likely symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis is a chronic inflammation of the nose and sinus cavities around the nose.
Sinusitis is classified as chronic if symptoms persist despite adequate treatment.
Chronic sinusitis is generally influenced by factors such as mechanical blockages in the nasal structure, history of allergies and asthma, bacterial and fungal inflammation and the presence of pollutants such as cigarettes.
The main symptoms of sinusitis include nasal congestion, thick mucus from the nose or throat, pain in the face and irritating disorders. The accompanying symptoms can include headaches, fever, bad breath, weakness, toothache, pain or feeling full in the ears, and coughing. The more sufferers experience the main complaints above, the greater the possibility of sinusitis.
To help the diagnosis can be done imaging tests, such as sinus X-ray or CT scan. Management of chronic sinusitis is by drug treatment (using antibiotics and other additives) or by functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
Indications for functional endoscopic sinus surgery include complications, recurrent or persistent sinus infections, or there is evidence of a malignancy in the sinus based on the results of tissue examination. Cure of sinusitis through this method of surgery is quite good and safe.
If at this time the symptoms have not improved after getting treatment from a doctor, you should consult with an ENT specialist to have a more comprehensive examination of the ear, nose and throat organs because they are often related to one another. Temporarily reduce the smoking habit gradually until it completely stops, and eat healthy and nutritious foods.
That's all, hope you can help
