Epilepsy: What Should You Know?

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Epilepsy: What Should You Know?

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.

Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc. 
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurologist.

Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Polycystic ovarian disease is a gynaecological disorder whose prevalence seems to have increased considerably among Indian women in last few years. Many young girls and middle-aged Indian women are suffering from this syndrome which is a marked by appearance of multiple cysts on ovaries and disturbances in monthly menstrual cycles.

CAUSES :

The exact cause of PCOD remains unknown to the modern science even as the genetic link is being scrutinized for its causative role.

 

SYMPTOMS :

TREATMENT :

From Ayurvedic point of view, PCOD reflects vitiation of rasa and rakta dhatus. When levels of impurities and toxins increase in rasa and rakta dhatus, body stores them in form of cysts around ovaries. So presence of multiple cysts indicate high levels of impurities and toxins in these dhatus. Sign and symptoms in PCOD patients suggest imbalance of all three doshas. Dhatwagnimandya may also exist in some patients. History of improper diet and lifestyle is generally found among majority of PCOD patients. Excessive consumption of hormonal pills and contraceptive pills too is reported by many patients. Mental stress and lack of physical exercise are marked among quite a few ladies with PCOD. From Ayurvedic perspectives, all these things can produce toxins in body and cause diseases like PCOD.

 

DIET & LIFESTYLE :

  • Low-fat milk is recommended. Boil milk before drinking. Drink it warm. This makes it easier to digest. Do not take milk with a full meal or with sour or salty foods. Add a pinch of turmeric or ginger to the milk before boiling it. This helps to reduce the kapha increasing qualities of the milk.
  • Lighter fruits, such as apples, oranges, grape fruit, pineapple and papaya and pears, are recommended.
  • Sweeteners: Honey is excellent for reducing kapha. Reduce the intake of sugar products, which increase kapha.
  • Beans are recommended. Nuts should be avoided.
  • Grains such as barley, chickpea and millet are recommended. Do not take too much wheat or rice, as they increase kapha.
  • Spices are recommended only in moderate quantities.
  • Vegetables such as potaotoes and sweet potatoes should be avoided as they can cause weight gain.
  • Follow a lifestyle that will not aggravate any dosha.
  • Negative feelings like stress and tension should be avoided. Do not undertake physical or mental work beyond your capacity.
  • Limit the use of contraceptives.
  • Follow an active lifestyle, yet the exercises should be according to one's capacity. Both, excessive fasting and overeating are harmful.
  • Smoking, drinking alcohol and using narcotics aggravates menstrual disorders.

Premature Ejaculation: A Growing Sexual Problem Among Men!

Premature Ejaculation: A Growing Sexual Problem Among Men!

Nowadays, men of almost all age are more or less suffering from various sexual problems because of the changing environment, psychological stress, and also physiological limitations. But according to today's sexologists, it is not entirely on the physiology when it comes to a man's erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. As already mentioned, work-related stress, personal dissatisfaction that often turn into depression and imbalanced lifestyle etc are responsible for the growing sexual problems in men.

What are the primary reasons for the premature ejaculation? Let's take a look-

Biological reasons

Various biological causes are responsible for the premature ejaculation, though according to the physiologists, no accurate reason has been noted for this sexual issue of men. Any kind of spinal injury can cause serious sexual trouble to men. Often lack of treatment can cause erectile dysfunction and that leads to premature ejaculation. The quality of the sperm and the count is also hampered because of this biological setback.n

Often infection is the testicles or sexually transmitted diseases are also responsible for the inflammation of the penis and testicles causing to premature ejaculation. Often the man can suffer from severe pain during the intercourse. Abnormal hormone level is also responsible for such issue. It is strongly recommended to opt for proper ayurvedic or herbal treatment that ensures complete cure of the sexual disorder.

Psychological reasons

According to many sexologists, the psychological problem affects the sexual life of individuals. Men suffering from any sexual trauma, poor body image, lack of self-confidence etc suffer from acute stress and depression. Often, they carry the seed of depression and stress from their workplace that hampers the normal family life. Even unmarried men in relationships can suffer from the same problem because of the constant stress and anxiety. Some of them end up with premature ejaculation without their will jeopardizing the sexual pleasure of the partners. If the problem is absolutely psychological, opting for yoga and maintaining a balanced diet can help incredibly along with proper diagnosis and proper medication.

Try the stop-start technique

Men suffering from the premature ejaculation problem are often suggested with the stop- start technique. This is a self-help therapy where they are asked to masturbate by their own with dry hands. When they reach the point of ejaculation, they should stop and hold it back. It is usually asked to do thrice and finally after some time, men should ask their partner to do the same and just before reaching the point of climax, they should get involved into the intercourse process and ejaculate in the natural process. This practice is supposed to be followed for some time before the issue gets normal and men suffering from erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation can hold back their strength and gradually perform excellent in bed.

Satisfy the partner

Men suffering from premature ejaculation are expected to have a matured and compassionate partner if they're in a love relationship or in a conjugal relationship. With the contribution of both the partners and with love and care, the issue can be cured. Partners can get involved into more foreplay than expecting more sex. Foreplay is also a satisfactory method of lovemaking that they can continue before reaching the climax.

What are the Risks of Premature Ejaculation?

Various risk factors are involved with this temporary yet major sexual disorder in men. They can go through even breakups if they are hooked up with immature partners that couldn't understand the physical issue of the partner.

Again, improper or lack of accurate diagnosis can result into infertility and other major problem that can cause to impotency of the person concerned suffering from premature ejaculation.

I am virgin boy and when o do masturbate my sperm have early ejaculation how I control it for long time.
Masturbation is only alternative of actual sex to fulfil your physical desire, your sexual need never get satisfied by masturbation, so your exicitement level always be very high to feel sex. So whenever you wants to masturbate one important thing want to be remember that you must be relaxed and calm. Breathing rate should be normal' just enjoy that feeling, don't do as to achieve any target, just dissolved in it. Also proper diet is required to maintain to control your over excitement level. This all can help you to increase your ejaculation time.

All medicines have side effects masturbation once a day is quite normal and harmless Try this it will help u. Pls note most of the times premature ejaculation (PE) occurs due to speed. We tend to go fast and in the process the sperm comes out sooner that required. Maintain a low speed and keep on taking deep breathes (when you penetrate) and stop for 30 seconds if you feel like ejaculating. U can practise this process while you masturbate, to gain confidence & remember that you need to enjoy the process and keep taking slow deep breathes. I would also suggest you to engage in some form of relaxation or yoga, to relieve your anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is another cause of PE. Engaging more in oral sex, without touching each others' genitals also helps in setting up the relaxation mode. Then you can go for penetration without much anxiety. For erectile dysfunction you can try getting stimulation from years partner, like proper liking or other forms of hand and oral stimulation in case you want a one to one talk with me, pls contact Lybrate for booking an appointment.

From your query, I understand that you are experiencing mood disturbances with anxiety. Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting and drifting mind can all be part of depression and/or anxiety. I suggest you consult on one 2 one basis to understand underlying reason for it and how you remedy your difficulty. Depression is very common and easily treatable provided you understand it and find way to work thro it. Seeking help can aid in earlier recovery. Best wishes.

Masturbation is not the reason for PE. Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Male Infertility?

What Treatment Options Are Available for Male Infertility?

It can be disheartening to find out that you're infertile, especially when you thought that everything was normal. There are many reasons why a man is not able to contribute to the conception process and, consequently, there are options that can assist with male infertility.

Here are the treatment options available for male infertility.

1. Vasectomy Reversal
In recent years many men are opting to have children after a vasectomy. Luckily, a vasectomy is not necessarily a permanent issue anymore. It can be reversed. It takes a simple surgical procedure that restores the flow of sperm. There are certain factors that affect the success rates of vasectomy reversals such as your age, the presence of antisperm antibodies, time elapsed since the vasectomy and the age of the woman. Although this procedure is an option it is generally not encourage.

2. Sperm Aspiration
This is a group of procedures which is used to get viable sperm from the man. The sperm is used with Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). This option is suitable for men who have severe types of male infertility. For example, if there is no sperm in their ejaculate, where sperm is dead or there is no motility. With this group of procedures there are four techniques that can be used to obtain the sperm. It is important to keep in mind that each technique is not suitable for everyone. These techniques are mentioned in the next four points.

3. Testicular Sperm Extraction
In this technique the fertility doctor removes a small piece of testicular tissue through a half inch skin incision. Sperm is liberated from the seminiferous tubules (where they are produced). This procedure can be performed in the doctor's surgery or the operating room and a mild sedation is recommended for comfort. The sperm harvested with this technique can be stored for later use.

4. Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration
If you have a reproductive tract blockage then this technique is an option. During this technique an operating microscope is used to examine the tubules that contain sperm. The fluid containing the sperm is collected and the quality is examined. Thereafter it is taken to the IVF laboratory for use.

5.Testicular Sperm Aspiration
This technique uses a needle biopsy of the testicle. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia in a doctor's surgery. The sperm is extracted through the testicle but the amount obtained can be low because the needle cuts a thin layer of the tissue. This procedure is usually quite successful and less invasive than other methods.

Unusual Red Penis Cause: Semen Allergy!

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Unusual Red Penis Cause: Semen Allergy!

Sporting a red penis can be a cause of pride or concern. When a man's penis health is good, his erect penis often has a red hue due to the blood that rushes in and fills the organ. But sometimes a red penis is due to a rash, an allergy, or any number of other causes. One of the more mysterious and unusual (and thankfully rare) causes? An allergy to his own semen. And what's worse, that allergy may produce more than just a red penis.

Semen allergy

It has been known for some time that some women may be allergic to a man's semen (or, more accurately, to the semen of a specific man or men). For such women, when a man ejaculates into their vagina or onto or into other parts of the body, they can develop a rash or itchiness. Burning and swelling is not uncommon; in some cases, a woman may break out in hives or even develop problems with breathing. It can become quite serious.

POIS

However, information on semen allergy in men is more limited. It was first described in 2002 and given the name post-orgasmic illness syndrome (POIS). As with women, the expulsion of semen from the penis in men with POIS may result in an irritated, red penis or in a penis rash. Itching is not uncommon, and swelling is also a factor for some men.

However, men with POIS are also likely to develop symptoms and issues that go beyond the penile area. A flu-like condition is frequently found post-ejaculation in men with POIS. Their eyes may get red and itchy, their nose is likely to run, and sneezing may ensue. In addition, they tend to get feverish and experience a significant level of fatigue - bed rest is often called for.

For most men with POIS, the reactions can occur whether ejaculation is achieved through masturbation or through partner sex.

Protein

In most cases, it appears the allergic reaction is due to a protein found in semen to which the body develops an autoimmune response. But it's interesting to note that men with this reaction do not necessarily have it their whole lives.

For example, a guy may masturbate quite happily as a teenager and enjoy many forms of partner sex before developing POIS. It can occur early on in the teen years or not show up until much later in life.

What is perhaps even more interesting is that the allergic reaction only occurs after semen has been ejaculated. While the semen is stored in the body, or if a man experiences sex without ejaculating, there is no reaction to the presence of the semen.

Treatment

Since the exact cause of the response is unknown, treating a semen allergy can be difficult. One course of treatment that has proven effective for many men is building immunity to it. This typically occurs by having a doctor inject a diluted form of semen into the body over a lengthy period of time. As the process goes along, the semen becomes less diluted.

Other doctors recommend using anti-inflammatories (as prescribed by an allergy specialist) before and/or after sex to possibly reduce the development of post-ejaculatory symptoms.

A semen allergy is not the only cause of a red penis, of course. When that redness is accompanied by irritation or dryness, use of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) may be appropriate. A man should inspect the ingredients list on any crème he considers and make sure it contains potent moisturizing ingredients to soothe the skin. Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (a natural hydrator) are ideal and work together to form a moisture lock. Thinning penile skin can also make the red penis more painful, so find a crème that includes alpha lipoic acid. This antioxidant fights the free radicals that can cause penis skin to grow thin.

Avoid Penis Pain With These Jock Strap Tips!

Avoid Penis Pain With These Jock Strap Tips!

During fast and furious sports, a man's very delicate equipment can be quite vulnerable. That's especially true if he chooses not to wear a cup or jock strap. This innovative protective device helps ensure a man's penis and scrotum stay comfortable, held against his body in such a way that the chances of injury are lessened. But for many men, penis pain might result from choosing the wrong jock strap. Here's what a man needs to know about choosing and using a jock strap, as well as proper penis care when using one.

Using a jock strap properly

A man will usually do anything to avoid penis pain, so why are so many men reluctant to use a jock strap or cup? Some men say that the jock strap is too uncomfortable, especially when a cup is inserted. Others say that it simply makes them far too hot when they are in the midst of a good game on the field. And still others say that proper fit means it's all too tight, and feels as though it limits their range of movement when they most need flexibility and speed.

To combat these ideas, try these tips:

1. Use a cup only when necessary. Not all sports require use of a cup. Basketball is a good example. A cup might not provide much protection during the game, but a jock strap is essential to keep the junk from bouncing as a man runs all over the court. However, those playing football, soccer or hockey - where rigorous contact might occur - are advised to use a cup. Those who play baseball are as well, as even the best reflexes probably won't be able to deflect a 90-mph ball coming off the bat right toward the family jewels.

2. Look for a thick waistband. Though the thin waistbands can look appealing, especially on men who have great abs, keep in mind that this visual isn't going to do him any favors in the protection department. In fact, it's unlikely a man is going to be getting it on with a partner while wearing the jock strap, so why not go for functional? A thick waistband will hold the jock strap firmly in place, which is exactly what a guy needs when he's moving around on the field.

3. Choose proper leg straps. Though men might be uncomfortable at first with the way fits around their body, those straps are there for a reason. A man will get used to the feeling over time. So instead of choosing very loose legs straps, which could rotate during play and expose the most delicate regions, a man should go with leg straps that fit firmly but comfortably.

4. Try it on. Avoiding penis pain can't be achieved if a man refuses to test out before hitting the field. The best route is to try it on in the sportswear store. Wear tight compression shorts underneath the jock strap, then slip a cup into place. Walk around a bit to see how it feels. Running in place might also help. Keep in mind that just come in a variety of sizes, so do cups. A guy must take the time to figure out which ones are the perfect fit for his body and athletic use.

Penis care when using jock straps

Even with a properly-fitted cup, a man will sometimes face chafing - and that can lead to penis pain. A man should always take care to wash the area thoroughly after his sports adventures, then reach for a great penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to soothe and heal. Look for a crème that contains vitamin D, C and B5 for their healing properties, as well as alpha-lipoic acid to fight free radicals and L-carnitine to protect against peripheral nerve damage. All this in a Shea butter base is great for penis care when using jock straps.

My B12 increased from 1457 to 1917. Whether I have sufficient /deficient B12. please tell me
Values of less than 200 pg/mL are a possible sign of a vitamin B12 deficiency. People with this deficiency are likely to have or develop symptoms. Older adults with vitamin B12 levels between 200 and 500 pg/mL may also have symptoms. High Vitamin B12. Medical conditions that can increase levels of vitamin B12 include liver disease, kidney failure and a group of blood cancers known as myeloproliferative disorders, which includes myelocytic leukemia and a condition that causes an overgrowth of red blood cells called polycythemia vera. High levels of vitamin B12 can occur in liver disease (such as cirrhosis or hepatitis) and some types of leukemia. But the vitamin B12 test is not usually used to diagnose these problems. In rare cases, high levels may be found in people with diabetes or who are obese.
