Allergic reaction?: That doesn't sound normal. You may be allergic to something in those pills. Check back with your doctor. It may also be a coincidence. Swollen gums could be caused by the continued presence of plaque and tartar along and under the gumline. If you have not seen a dentist lately then do so to rule that out. ...Read more

Somewhat: It depends how severe. Good dental hygiene is key. Frequent brushing and dental floss, multiple times each day will help. If it is severe, then you will need the help of a dentist, to surgically decrease the increased size of the gums. If untreated, this could lead to tooth loss. If severe, alternate anti-seizure medications should be considered. ...Read more

Valsalva: Try performing a valsalva maneuver - pinch your nose and gently "blow" air out of your nose while at the same time bearing down like you are lifting something. This will force air up your eustachian tube and expand the middle ear and prevent traction on the ear drum which is what causes the pain and fullness during descent. ...Read more

What are some medications or treatments w/o life threatening side effects that can help someone stop smoking? Other than the e-cig and nicotine gum.

What are some medications or treatments w/o life threatening side effects that can help someone stop smoking? Other than the e-cig and nicotine gum.

Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy can break tobacco habits. It can make the use of the tobacco product aversive - even disgusting. That can cause social problems if those near you smoke, but it can work without that extreme an effect too. Here's a hint: the breathing pattern of smokers is actually good to continue - without the cigarette. It is good for you and stopping that is part for what makes it feel so bad. Best. ...Read more
