As you walk around and hear everybody sneezing, nasally congested and coughing, INCLUDING YOURSELF!,Please don’t say, “It’s JUST my allergies.”
Because what I, Husna R. Baksh, M.D, hear is: AIRWAY INFLAMMATION (EXACERBATION) and DECREASED Oxygenation which MAY lead to:
2. feverish feeling
3. sleepy all day
4. not spending quality time with SELF, FRIENDS and FAMILY
5. decreased physical, emotional and intellectual motivation/FUNCTION
AND IF AIRWAY INFLAMMATION stays around chronically, when I hear sneezing I think:
2. increased risk of falls
3. decreased hearing
4. decreased social interaction
5. decreased JOY!
SO, PLEASE BE SEEN BY YOUR DOCTOR, OR OTHER PROVIDER, for treatment.
Tune in next time for clarification of above.
