Sir my mother age 65 yrs, diagnosed bell palsy for past 2 month. But till now do not have much improvement. She was treated in hospital for 4 days taking steroids for 1 month n right now doing physio. Is there any other treatment for it. Please advise.

DM - Neurology
Hi lybrate-user - for "Bell's palsy" the treatment is a course of oral steroids in tapering doses for 7 days; after that period is over, the only intervention that has been shown to be better than placebo is physiotherapy. So, to give you a short answer - No, there is no (scientifically - proven) therapy which can be given to her at this point. I would like to point out a few things here: (1) Ensure the diagnosis is accurate; though Bell's is the most common condition, the age of 67 years would make us consider more serious conditions - at least to keep our eyes and ears open; (2) Even if there is no visible improvement after the use of steroid, at the very least, it prevents further worsening, which is a very important thing - because, the worst complication of Bell's palsy is the eyelid becoming so weak that the eye gets exposed and the cornea can suffer (secondary) exposure keratitis, leading, at its worst, to corneal blindness; so rest assured that the use of oral steroids was not a useless exercise; (3) Bell's palsy has a monophasic course - which is to say, it rarely, if ever, recurs - so much so that if facial palsy does recur in your mother's case, then the treating doctor should seriously consider alternative diagnoses. That is a point which should help you to relax. Do continue physiotherapy, it has been shown to have significant benefit - though you shouldn't be expecting miracles.

Alzheimer's - An Overview!

Alzheimer's - An Overview!

With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.

Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.

Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:

  1. Being confused about places, people, and times
  2. Inability to find the right words during conversations
  3. Regular objects are misplaced
  4. Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
  5. Mood swings
  6. Personality changes
  7. Inability to organise thoughts
  8. Not able to make the right decisions
  9. Repetitive talks and actions
  10. Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
  11. Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
  12. Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
  13. Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)

Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and poor lifestyle choices.

Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.

Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Change diet, lifestyle and your drs also if possible You have to treat the root cause and not the symptom -Headache alone .Your Dr. Has to treat the whole patient and not the disease alone. Treat the reversible causes and triggers for headache first. The cause for the headache may not be in your head it can be due to problems arising elsewhere in the body like Gastric issues, BP ,food sensitivity, Stress, Eye, ENT, problems ,environmental toxins. They can be the cause either alone or in combination. If your test results are all normal but you are still having symptoms that clearly indicates your Dr. Has not addressed your diet and lifestyle, has done incomplete lab testing and not given you the right dietary and lifestyle advice. which is more profitable for the doctor and expensive for you because you have to visit him frequently. Always learn about natural alternative therapy by asking your Dr. or reading up from the right sources. Your headache will remain if your Doctor 1) Has not taken detailed dietary, eating and lifestyle habits history. 2) Not done the comprehensive lab testing which should include tests for inflammation, mineral and vitamin deficiency. Focusing only on doing tests specific to your complaint will not fix your problem These 2 steps needs to be done correctly before suggesting the correct treatment. Take a. Consult after sending feedback with name and contact number .All diseases begin in the gut and no health issue can be fixed without fixing diet and lifestyle.

Migraine is otherwise defined as headache with gastric upset. 2 treatment s exist Preventive treatment given if headaches are frequent and interfering with your work. Another medicine whenever the headache starts. If you are able to divert yourselves during headache ,the severity will be less.

Hello sir, my mom has tumor of dimension of 18 by 22 under the small brain and this symptoms are she caught sleeping all the time and also her emotional since also not working. My question is that is operations for this is necessary and if yes then which operation is required. Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Navi Mumbai
Dear, Before jumping to treatment, it is utmost importance to know what type of tumor it is. If it is primary brain tumor thn surgery is required, preferably complete removal of tumor if possible without damaging surrounding brain. If it is secondary means disease from some other place in body to spread to brain, primary emphasis should be on finding out primary. In meanwhile, consult Oncologist for symptoms relief.
