Hi, I use Nasal spray Avamys regulary to keep my hay fever under control. i am asthmatic and allergic patient from India. However, recently when I developed breathlessness and sudden weight loss, my physician asked me to stop using Nasal spray for three months and now he prescribed the same again after a gap of three months. However, it brought back my breathlessness & anxiety causing weakness and i am not able to regain weight and lead a normal life since last 4 months. Doctor also said my heart rate is up than normal. I faced similar situation 5 years back and after four months of struggle my breathing got restored. I also need to know in what conditions nasal spray causes sever itching and redness in skin, eyes? I am suffering from High proteinous food stuffs. My source of proteins currently is milk and eggs, cottage cheese etc.

How can I get rid of my breathlessness and anxiety immediately?
How can I avoid itching on skin and redness in my eyes?

Looking forward to get answers from experts.

Yes....Overuse of any medicine without doctor's guidance, it may lead to breathlessness.

But after reading your problem, I think you are allergic to Nasal spray. So its always better option to have it with the proper consultation.

For eye redness, you must take care of eyes properly. Eating food that promotes eye health. Including green veggies and meal etc.
For instant relief from eye itching, sprinkle cool water on eyes & put on cucumber slice, it will keep your eyes cool & reduces the itchiness.

And for breathlessness and anxiety, I suggest you that you need proper consultation from doctor. Go to doctor first and then he can prescribe you medicines accordingly.

Hope you find it useful

Thank you Maria for your suggestions. They are helpful. However, I am taking nasal spray with my doctor's consultation only and he is aware of my problem and he is still asking me to take it.

My only concern is that Is it happening (Breathlessness) due to weakness or loss of weight? I accept that I took this nasal spray continuously for three years without doctor's consultation. Because my doctor prescribed me the same medicine for 4 years prior to this. I faced similar problem 5 years back and it was gone automatically after few days.

Right now I want to get rid of breathlessness immediately and prevent this to happen in future. Regular consultation will help me to prevent this in future I agree to you Maria here.

As far as redness in eye is concerned I am eating green leafy vegetables regularly almost every day once. May be my less proteins intake might be the reason for the redness. I am now taking two times milk and a boiled egg daily to maintain the balance. Let see if it works.

All medicines have side effects and you should find out what they are before you take the medicine. I wouldn't worry about your protein level. All vegetables have protein in them. vegans do get enough protein. Look at all the protein a cow has and the cow eats grass. Collin Campbell did the China study showing animal protein can cause disease. Some people are sensitive to milk. Unless you are drinking organic milk they are putting chemicals in these cows to make them produce more milk. If you are drink their milk you are exposed to these chemicals. You may be sensitive to the milk you are drinking.
