Allergic to soy sauce? I had some with rice and my lips exploded! they're like balloons. Anything over-the-counter i can take? They hurt so bad!

I would also make an appointment to confirm a soy allergy and make sure you do not have an allergy to something else you ate. ...Read more

Yesterday ml Restylane (dermal fillers) to lips. They swole up huge like balloons! Sore big and hard! Filler was hard! Will I need prednisolone or to remove filler??

Normal or overfilled: Allergic reactions to ha fillers are rare. It's more likely you are temporarily swollen just from being poked. Ice and ibuprofen are your best treatment for the first 2 to 3 days after fillers. If the swelling persists after 3 days then you might be overfilled and you can discuss with your injector about reversal ...Read more

I have sinusitis leading to head pressure and off balance. Meds have not worked. Would balloon sinusplasty make me feel balanced again?

I have sinusitis leading to head pressure and off balance. Meds have not worked. Would balloon sinusplasty make me feel balanced again?

Probably not: There are many unanswered questions here. Has a cat scan of the sinuses by done? How extensive is the sinusitis? What sinuses are involved? In general chronic sinus infection does not lead to loss of balance. Finally, balloon sinoplasty will only enlarge the openings of the maxillary or frontal sinuses. If you have polypoid or cystic disease of the sinuses, this technique may not work. ...Read more

I lay down my head feels great. I sit up, forehead fills up with fullness like balloon over eyes. I lay down and goes away in a flash. Sinus mucus?

I lay down my head feels great. I sit up, forehead fills up with fullness like balloon over eyes. I lay down and goes away in a flash. Sinus mucus?

Usually the opposite: When a person lies down, there is more venous congestion in the nose and sinuses. When you are erect, there is less venous pressure and better mucus flow by gravity. Regardless of the positional explanation, it would be a good idea to get an ENT consult for a specific diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I have also had  a dvt.  I explained to my old family physician that I had a senstion in my head like a balloon and then it popped.  My doctor at the time beleived it to be an anurism.  They can't find any evidence of it though and I continue to have have

Not enough info: Dvt and intracranial aneurysms are not related. Your symptoms do not in fact sound much like an aneurysm. Had an aneurysm ruptured you would have likely had a stroke and imaging would clearly show the problem. Something else needs to be considered. To determine what would require a detailed history and physical. ...Read more

I have had a lot of head/ nasal congestion for a week. Now everytime i bite down i hear a balloon or drum tapping sound. Why? What should I take?

I have had a lot of head/ nasal congestion  for a week. Now everytime i bite down i hear a balloon or drum tapping sound. Why? What should I take?

Fluid in ear: Those symptoms suggest you have fluid in the ear or sinuses or both. It's a common complication of a cold. If you're otherwise healthy and not having high fevers, you can try over-the-counter decongestants for a few days to see if it clears. If not, it's sometimes helped with antibiotics. I'd seek help right away, though, if you get a fever over 100, or you have loss of hearing. ...Read more

What happens if we blow a balloon pump in your mouth but didn't breathe in the oxygen?

What happens if we blow a balloon pump in your mouth but didn't  breathe in the oxygen?

Balloon pump: If you do not take your mouth off of a balloon pump you may deplete the oxygen in a closed space and get lightheaded. Most people will take a few breaths blow up a little then take a few more breaths and repeat. Lack of oxygen will eventually cause people to pass out. As the carbon dioxide level raises in the blood the desire to breath increases and the person will breathe faster. Hope this helps. ...Read more

When I lay on my stomach with my head propped up, I get an intense pressure in my head. It feels like an overfilled ballon. What could it be?

I suspect: Since it is positional I suspect that it would be related to pressure on nerves or blood vessels in your high neck area. You could have manipulation done to see if it helps or just avoid the position. Others might have some other suggestions for you. ...Read more
