The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for your health. I am so glad that you are seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in your recovery. You must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as your primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. I congratulate you on this fabulous decision that will benefit you. You are taking action that will have a major bearing on many lives.

My 76 years old mother underwent SUCCESSFUL burr hole surgery (SA-SDH) in April after recurrent falls due to unstable gait for sometime then. She was earlier on ecosprin -75 and Envas-2.5. The latter is continued but ecosprin stopped since. Her serum sodium level has been subnormal throughout (123-132). Now after almost complete neurological problem resolution she still has knee weakness and low sodium which we are controlling through extra salt diet and electrolyte regular supplement. The problem is since a hypertension patient we get worried if she may become hypertension. Please suggest remedy to maintain reasonable sodium level without compromising with BP problem. She is on the following drugs since april after surgery: 1. Citimax-500 mg (OD) lEVIMAK-500 MG (BD) ECOSPRIN-2.5 (OD)

Hi I can understand your problem. # relax & stay positive. # take hot and cold fomentation. # change sleeping position. # use lumbar support. # take break every 20 minutes. # do strengthening exercise of back and core muscles not all back pains are same, you need specific treatment plan according to your symptoms.
