I have accidentally inhaled a lot of bleach and now my head hurts and I have a burning feeling in my nose. Should I be worries?

Possibly: If you mean you were cleaning with bleach and you breathed in some fumes, then you are probably ok. If your discomfort doesn't go away with some fresh air, you might want to get checked out however. If you mean you actually inhaled liquid bleach, then yes, you should be worried and you should see a doctor right away. ...Read more

I inhaled mould and bleach and have been sleepy, sick, can't eat, head hurts, temputure, and throat and lungs burn and coughing a lot what do I do?

Mold and bleach.: Sounds terrible. See a doc to check you nose, chest etc. First get away from that environment. Breath healthy air. Treat supportively. Your doctor would best do that after he examines you. High levels of mold can have minor nervous systems effects but they do not linger. ...Read more

Would a sinus headache (it hurts when I bend over and my head feels stuffy) account for shortness if breath and a lightheaded feeling?

Would a sinus headache (it hurts when I bend over and my head feels stuffy) account for shortness if breath and a lightheaded feeling?

No: Sinus infection should not cause shortness of breath. The sinuses are in the face and head and should not affect breathing unless you also have nasal congestion associated with the sinusitis. But nasal congestion should only produce nasal obstruction and not shortness of breath. Light headedness is non-specific and is rarely due to sinus inflammation. ...Read more

I've been having really bad sinus head aches for about 2weeks now, and my head hurts really bad and I can breath out of my nose? When my head hurts it feel like the pain is behind my right eye and my right nostril feels like its stopped up

Nerve: Nerve supply of your sinuses and brain covering (meninges) is the same trigeminal nerve. Therefore stimulation of this nerve can cause sinu congestin and headaches at the same time. If you have more than 4 headaches per month then you need headache prophylactic medication such as topamax, (topiramate) depakote, propranolol, verapamil, or amitriptyline. You may also need medicatin for break through headaches such as Naproxen sodium, fioricet, or ultram. Finally abortive medication such as Imitrex may also be needed. Always read for adverse effect of each medication.

For you rsinus issues, unless they are infected, you may use Flonase nasal spray or something similar. ...Read more

Should I be concerned with getting sinus headache very frequently. It sometime hurts to breath put of my nose. My ears and heard hurt a lot?

See an ENT: As a fellow sinus sufferer, I can tell you that the best thing I ever did was go and see an ENT. The ENT will be able to take at look at the entrances to your sinuses and prescribe a regimen to deal with the issue.

I know that it seems like a big step, but living on nasal decongestant sprays and oral decongestants is not the way out of this. ...Read more

Showed symptoms of a cold, had cough with phlegm, pressure in head. Now all I have is headache, weakness, and a mild cough slightly short of breath. Help?

Go see your doctor: Most colds are viral in nature. In other words, they won't respond to antibiotics. However, shortness of breath shouldn't be ignored. While this may be reactive airway disease (variant of asthma), you'll need to go see your doctor for diagnosis ; management (inhalers). Headache ; weakness (where?) can be a sign of not getting enough oxygen (or other condition). So don't delay. Go see your doc! ...Read more
