I'm 18 years old female my name is simian soni nd I have a problem of numbness, left side of my body is totally numb before I wake up in the morning I want to know that which type of symptoms or problem is that?

Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. See, if you have numbness in one half of the body, it is important to clinically examine you and focus has to be on cervical spine and brain region. Since this is a slightly sensitive issue, I will advise you to get in touch of a neurophysician and get a detailed evaluation done for yourself. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

What are causes for getting brain tumor in human beings and how to control that? How can we solve that problem.

M.Ch - Neuro Surgery, MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Mumbai
Hello lybrate-user. The symptoms of brain tumours are as follows -headache -nausea, vomiting -blurring of vision -double vision -seizures -weakness of hands and /or legs -numbness or pins/needles sensation -speech disturbances etc. As you can see, all these are common symptoms and can be associated with many non-serious medical conditions as well. Hence it is always better to meet a doctor in case of any medical condition. Brain tumours can be treated with surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or a combination of these based on the type and location of tumour in the brain. Best wishes.

Scope of Homoeopathic in treating Epilepsy

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Chennai
Epilepsy is a disorder that results from the generation of electrical signals inside the brain, causing recurring seizures. Seizure symptoms vary. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others have regular convulsions.

A seizure is a abnormal, disorderly discharging of the brain's nerve cells, resulting in a temporary disturbance of motor, sensory, or mental function. There are many types of seizures, depending primarily on the part of the brain involved.

Every person suffering from epilepsy has different experience. Hence homoeopathy offers many remedies to treat epilepsy, depending on the sign and symptoms. Homoeopathy can treat epilepsy very successfully.

Risk Factors
Early childhood
Above 65 years
Men are affected more
Family History of epilepsy
Fall on head, injury, accident
Brain Infections

Causes
Healthy people may have seizures under certain circumstances. If the seizures have a known cause, the condition is referred to as secondary or symptomatic epilepsy. Some of the more common causes include the following:
Tumour
Chemical imbalance such as low blood sugar or sodium
Head injuries
Certain toxic chemicals or drugs of abuse
Alcohol withdrawal
Stroke including hemorrhage
Birth injuries
Developmental Disorders: Epilepsy can be associated with other developmental disorders, such as autism and Down syndrome.

Symptoms
Almost any type of behavior that happens repetitively may represent a seizure. Types are:

Generalized seizures: All areas of the brain (cortex) are involved in a generalized seizure. Sometimes these are referred to as grand mal seizures.
To the observer, the person experiencing such a seizure may cry out or make some sound, stiffen for some seconds, then have rhythmic movements of the arms and legs. Often the rhythmic movements slow before stopping.
Eyes are generally open.
The person may not appear to be breathing. The person is often breathing deeply after an episode.
The return to consciousness is gradual and should occur within a few moments.
Loss of urine is common.
Often people will be confused briefly after a generalized seizure.

Partial or focal seizures: Only part of the brain is involved, so only part of the body is affected. Depending on the part of the brain having abnormal electrical activity, symptoms may vary.
If the part of the brain controlling movement of the hand is involved, for example, then perhaps only the hand may show rhythmic movements or jerking.
If other areas of the brain are involved, symptoms might include strange sensations or small repetitive movements such as picking at clothes or lip smacking.
Sometimes the person with a partial seizure appears dazed or confused. This may represent a partial complex seizure. The term complex is used by doctors to describe a person who is between being fully alert and unconscious.

Absence or Petit mal seizures: These are most common in childhood. Symptoms include
Impairment of consciousness is present with the person often staring blankly.
Repetitive blinking or other small movements may be present.
Typically, these seizures are brief, lasting only seconds. Some people may have many of these in a day.
Other types of seizure are particularly found in small children

Investigations
Neurological Examination
Blood Tests
EEG
MRI Scan
CT Scan

Diagnosis
The doctor uses neurological tests and other investigations to diagnose epilepsy.

Complications
Falling: If you fall during a seizure, you can have severe head injury.
Status Epilepticus: This condition occurs if you're in a state of continuous seizure activity lasting more than five minutes or you have frequent recurrent seizures without regaining consciousness in between them. People with status epilepticus have an increased risk of permanent brain damage and death.

Role of Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a form of healing based upon the principle of ‘Similia similibus curentur’ or ‘like cures like’. It was founded by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810. Homoeopathy offers vast scope in the treatment of various illnesses, both acute and chronic including epilepsy.

Homeopathy takes into account the entire person like the patients family history, past history, etc. Homoeopathic doctors study each case thoroughly, analyze and evaluate the symptoms and then prescribe the medicine.

Homeopaths treat the patient’s mental, emotional and physical make-up i.e. the constitution. This is known as ’constitutional treatment’. Constitutional treatment treats the disease and removes it from its roots. The Constitutional method is employed in the treatment of epilepsy in Homoeopathy. This method is gives amazing results in many cases.

Homeopathy has immense scope in the treatment of Epilepsy. In fresh cases, where the child is new to epileptic treatment, homoeopathy can relieve complaints by giving ‘constitutional treatment’.

In other cases where the child is already taking treatment, homoeopathy can taper off the doses gradually and thus treat the patient effectively. Thus, in both the cases, homoeopathic treatment is beneficial in treating epilepsy.

In either of the cases, a constitutional medicine is given to treat epilepsy. Constitutional treatment relieves the patient from seizures, convulsions, etc. Thus the child can attend school daily and concentrate on his studies. In about 1/3 cases of epilepsy, a surgery known as ‘seizure surgery’ is performed. Regular constitutional treatment is very useful in such cases.

Homeopathic medicines are completely side-effect free and are not habit-forming. They can be taken by children, adults and even by pregnant women. They must be taken only after consultation from a homoeopathic practitioner.

Our team at Newlife Speciality Centre is completely dedicated to serve the patients and relieve them from illnesses. The doctors have skill and knowledge to handle different cases effectively. They strive for the well being of their clients.

I am having migraine problem since one and a half year. Suggest me the best home remedies and exercises.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

Am having chronic migraine from 15 years, is there any cure? if yes than how to approach? how much it may cost?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

My mom was affected with SAH and later got affected by vasospasm. Right side is paralysed. Latest CT report shows that there is a hydrocephalus formation. Doctor is advising for a surgery. My Question is that we do not have a reclining bed at home and we are giving food through a rayls tube and she is always lying down even when we are feeding her. Does this affect in any way?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Hydrocephalus may need a shunt procedure to keep intracranial pressure normal. Continuously in bed may cause bed sores and bladder infection if regular posture changing is not attended. If her bladder is catheterized, outer urine bag emptying should be done properly so that urine from bag does not return through catheter in to the urinary bladder. Apply talcum powder to the back and keep the skin dry, especially in these days of summer.

I am having severe migraine since childhood but it occur only once in a month. How can I prevent it from happening again and again?

B H M S, MD
Homeopath, Thrissur
Migraine is vascular headache which occurs due to spasm of blood vessels of head and brain. Medicines are now available to give relief but will not prevent or cure migraine. Homoeopathy has much more drugs and the suitable drug will eradicate the migraine completely and the suitability of a drug has to be ascertained by studying the genetic make up of a person.
