Sir I consulted for second opinion and now the other ENT doctor has asked me not to opt for surgery insted he prescribed me with medicines for 45 days?
Reasonable: Treatment with antibiotics is the standard first-line treatment for patients with sinusitis.

I have some tinnitus after UTI treatment. My ENT gives piracetam and tebonin. Will it be fine? I'm a little afraid of eat too many medicine/caps
Tinnitus not serious: In most cases. Don't know why piracetam was prescribed, efficacy to treat anything let alone tinnitus is questionable. There are claims that tebonin might have some effect. Best to diagnose cause & treat that. Certainly discontinue any meds which might have caused it. White noise machine can help to reduce tinnitus to help with sleep. Amytryptyline or nortriptylene can help ?Consult other ENT dr. ...Read more

Migraines are diagnosed clinically. Making a definitive diagnosis would be difficult since much if the diagnosis of all of these is subjective ...Read more

If he tells you your tonsils don't need taking out, they don't need taking out. ...Read more
