I am not able to control the seizure after taking medication. Please help me.

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
Sometimes a single drug is not effective in controlling seizures. You need a combination or 2-3 medicines and some time is needed for dose adjustment it may take 4-6 weeks before desirable results are obtained. You have not told about medicine you are taking take certain precautions like- sleep in time eat well, do not fast watch tv from a distance and do not watch for long time.

Can Sleep Irregularity be a Sign of Depression?

BHMS
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Can Sleep Irregularity be a Sign of Depression?

Depression is a clinical, mental and emotional condition that may give rise to feelings of hopelessness and chronic sadness. It slows down the way people process everyday activities and leads the patient to a sense of constant gloom and doom. It is a disabling mental condition as per who and may be caused due to reasons like genetics, changes in the balance of hormones, stress, grief, trauma and prolonged, chronic physical ailments.

Symptoms of depression are:

  1. Sleep irregularity: It relates to either insomnia or oversleeping that is, either you sleep too much or do not sleep at all. This could be because of work or other stress in your personal or professional life.
  2. Irritation or unnecessarily getting angry: You start losing your temper easily and that too for silly reasons. You think you are losing control.
  3. Feeling hopeless and sad: The first signal or symptom is the feeling of hopelessness. In this, case the patient loses the hope in everything. They feel like being trapped in some kind of cage, from which they are not able to come out.
  4. Lack of interest in anything: Everything seems to be of no use or interest, even your daily work. You don't want to do anything; even the things, which you loved to do like your hobbies and passions, which you no longer find interesting.

Here is a comprehensive list of homeopathic medicines which most doctors are likely to recommend for treating depression:

  1. Sepia: This medicine is beneficial to women suffering from post-partum depression (sadness or emotional conflict after giving birth) and menopause. Feeling of solitude and hopelessness with no energy to continue with life are some common symptoms that can be reduced with Sepia.
  2. Arsenicum album: This medicine is prescribed to control the symptoms like diarrhea, gastric problems, indigestion which patients often suffer from as a result of intense anxiety. Patients, appropriate for this medicine tend to be fastidious and restless. It is made of white arsenic and should be taken in prescribed potency because an overdose can cause gastroenteritis.

The above mentioned medicines are just some of the medicines, which should only be taken only after consulting your doctor, as causes and symptoms differ for each person.

What is the brain hemorrhage?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
'hemorrhage' is the scientific term for bleeding; brain hemorrhage is bleeding into the brain. There are 3 kinds: bleeding into the brain itself, or bleeding into two spaces around the brain - the sub-arachnoid space or the sub-dural space. The last one, sub-dural hemorrhage occurs most often following an injury, very occasionally after a long gap and can be very confusing. For example, trivial injury to a very elderly person can lead to bleeding into the sub-dural space months later, lead him into coma gradually and be only diagnosed only on a ct scan. Sub-arachnoid hemorrhage is usually catastrophic, starting with a headache like a bolt from the blue and striking the person down and many times leads to death. There are many treatments to be done, but it is a very complex and difficult disorder. Bleeding into the brain can be'minor' but in 25 % of the cases it is instantly fatal; another 25 % die within 30 days; and another 25% die within 1 year. That means 75% patients with brain hemorrhage die within 1 year - that's how serious it is! the most common causes of brain hemorrhage are age and high blood pressure.

If your headache is associated with nausea or vomiting and it occurs only on one side of head it may be migraine. In case of migraine you will also identify some triggers like light, sound, smell, lack of sleep etc. causing an attack. Try to identify what causes your headache and avoid that trigger. Also you will be having phonophobia or photophobia in migraine and your headache will worsenbwith physical activity. If your head ache has above mentioned character it is migraine. Take simple analgesics when you have headache.

I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.

I am 20 yr old male. My body shakes every time, especially when I do some hard physical work like exercise etc, I hand shakes badly when I hold something in my hand. Please help me.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Hyderabad
It is a kind of tremor disorder. Is there any other family member or blood relative having these kind of symptoms. You should check for thyroid function. A video of your hand shaking along with other detail information is required to give a full diagnosis. After that medications can be prescribed you to reduce your tremor.

Your symptoms show anxiety. Please talk to a counsellor. You need to identify what all is going on in your mind and is hampering your routine life. The counsellor will help you in identifying your issues and also will help you to cope with it. Shaking legs is a reflexive action for anxiety. Whenever you notice, that you are shaking your legs, make a conscious effort to stop it. Keep a book or something on you lap, so the moment you start shaking your legs it will fall, and you will be aware of it and then make conscious effort to stop it. About the habit of" day dreaming" and sleeslessness, behaviour therapy will help you. Kindly talk to a counsellor.

Probably non neurological. If at all neurological, it may be due to pinched nerves in your back (t10 and L1)
