    Hello, Sorry about that. I really need to understand this better. For how long have you been experiencing this? How did those who have heard the sound described it? Is it like you are talking to someone or shouting or making sounds that no one can comprehend? Are you obese or do you notice if you are gaining weight lately? Do you sleep very late? Take your time to answer these questions as it will help me figure out what might be wrong. Will expect your reply.

    I have bin experiencing it frm childhood BT one tin I noticed was dat it d sound began to increase as I m getting older. m nt too obese. I was told I normally put my hands on my nose while making d sound I dnt observed while doing it until I gt touched.

    OK. You didn't answer all my questions. Any way, if this has been on since you were a child, then the cause will likely be structural. It might be that something is blocking your windpipe leading to that sound. There is also a condition called obstructive sleep apnea, it's commoner in obese people and can give something similar. You need to see an ENT surgeon for you to be evaluated further. He might request for investigations to rule out one or two things. I think that's the best way to find a lasting solution to this problem. Take care

    Good morning, It will be hereditary if your dad or mum or someone who is a close relative has the same. For now we need to probe in order to find the cause. I mentioned 2 likely things that might be responsible earlier during our discussion but I don't want you to bother your head about the names. Chest scanning or X-ray might not reveal what's wrong with you. Let me also add the problem might not have anything to do with bacteria. The problem, from what I could gather might be from you nose and throat, that's why you need an Ear/Nose/Throat specialist. You can get this specialist is some general hospitals. But if you can visit a specialist centre, or a teaching hospital, you will definitely find one there. If you have difficulty finding one, we can help. Send an email with your name, location and phone number to findadoctor@kangpe.com. You can send the audio file to me through this email hello@kangpe.com. Specify the audio is for Dr Idris, it will get to me. Thanks

    Gotten! I've listened to it. My impression is no different from what I was thinking of initially. It sounds like a snore actually. Seeing an ENT surgeon as I've said earlier is till your best bet. With focused evaluation, I'm optimistic this problem can be solved. Have a nice day

    That's better. I'm not an ENT surgeon. I'm also not available for now. Just try and locate department when you come, they will take good care of you. Take care

    how can I gt an ent surgeon wen I gt to uith nd pls kindly direct me to som1 so DAT I won't stress myself of finding a Dr. tnk u
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    Good morning, The easiest way to go about it is to first get to the reception. The ENT department is not far from the reception. I won't be able to direct you to a particular person. The teaching hospital system, especially that of UITH doesn't work like that. In fact, directing you to a person will even stress you more because you might not find the person easily. Just go, get to the reception, you will be directed. Get to the department and request that you want to see a Doctor. You will be directed appropriately. Please go early. Have a nice day

    pls wot is d cause of this thing we didcuss earlier ?wot drugs can I be using for my running nose nd sneezing?
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    Hello, I've not examined you physically, so it will be hard to conclude. However from our discussion I think there is something blocking your airway resulting in that sound. The runny nose and sneezing might be due to allergy. For now take Tab cetrizine 10mg twice daily for 3 days. Take care
