I have migraine from two years. It is very pain ful for me any medicine in not benefit to me pls help.

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.

Why it was said that in epilepsy medication side effect is tolerable then disease itself? Bcoz there are so many side effects of medicine despite of that it is recommended?

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Because the effects of epilepsy are more serious than the side effects of its medicines that's why taking medication is a better acceptable solution

Seizures In Children - Causes And Treatment

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Seizures In Children - Causes And Treatment

During a febrile seizure, the body of a child may convulse, shake and contract, the eyes may roll, and he or she may moan or become unconscious. This type of seizure is usually for a few minutes, but in rare cases can last up to 15 minutes.

Febrile seizures stop on their own while the fever persists until treated. While some children may feel sleepy afterwards, others do not have lasting effects.

Seizures in toddlers may be caused due to the following factors

  • EpilepsyEpilepsy is defined categorically as two or more seizures without any acute cause. Epilepsy can occur at any age, but it is usually diagnosed in infants and young children.
  • Body temperature - Body temperature may indicate a crisis in small children. High body temperatures or low body temperature can cause seizures in a toddler. These types of seizures occur only once or twice in children two years or younger, often after an illness. This type of seizure due to the fortification of the body temperature is considered a febrile convulsion.
  • DehydrationFebrile seizures can also occur due to dehydration. Dehydration is a direct result of previous illness that included sweating and fever.
  • Physical condition - A child who is in poor physical condition can also be prone to seizures. Malnutrition or a body weakened by disease or illness makes small children more susceptible to crises.
  • Family History - Family history can play a role in toddlers or children with seizures. If a family member suffered  from the tendency or had convulsions, particularly febrile seizures as a child, this trait can be inherited.

Treating febrile seizures

If your child has a febrile seizure, stay calm and:

  • Make sure your child is in a safe place and does not fall or hit something hard
  • Place your child on his side to prevent choking
  • Watch for signs of breathing difficulties, including any colour change in the face of your child
  • If the seizure lasts more than a few minutes or your child turns blue, it may be a more serious type of seizure; connect with doctors immediately

Febrile seizures can be frightening to witness, but remember they are fairly common and are not usually a symptom of a serious disease, and in most cases does not lead to other health problems. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Hi sir. My father age is 65 years, having no BP and sugar. Last week he suddenly fainted while standing, after that we admitted in hospital. Doctor said that due to viral fever White blood cells and platelet count is low. Before that he did Neck Doppler CT scan test.In that impression it shows fibrocalcific plaque at left proximal ICA is approximately 34% diameter stenosis. And atheromatous plaque at right proximal ECA is about 36% diameter stenosis. Minimal intimal thickening in bilateral carotid bulbs. Can you please suggest any thing serious or how to reduce that plaque. Thanks in advance.

DHMS (Hons.)
Homeopath, Patna
Hello, Lybrate user Cyncopal attack is caused due to insufficient supply of oxygen to brain being obstructed by carotid arteries in the case of your father but 34% & 36 of calcific plaque is not so alarming. You should go for Eco to find out the position of aortic valve, (aortic stenosis) supplying oxygenised blood to the system. Tk care.

I'm shocked. 7- I look pale and have many skin problems, like breakouts, scars, black head white heads, patchy skin. Did consult doctors. But nothing did really help. Blood test already done, there's no blood infection. 8- i've consulted a gynaecologist too for my periods and skin issues, conducted some tests which were normal.

In later years I consulted an specialist he said I hv arthritis, I didn't continue the medicines. 12- my tongue has unusual black spots. My metabolism isn't good. Constipation is not a regular problem. 13- recently i'm realising that my body's tiny hair including my face is growing dark. I fear of hormonal problem. 14- from last one month i've chronic bony pain especially in my hands, feet and legs. My finger joints are paining like anything, I can't keep my feet on the floor, it hurts badly. I'm not able to sleep due to unbearable pain. In fact I can't explain my condition.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi.

Also you should consult a general physician and a gynaecologist as well and if required get your hormonal workup done as well. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Sleep Apnea - Complications It Can Cause!

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
General Physician, Delhi
Sleep Apnea - Complications It Can Cause!

A good night’s sleep is essential for your mental and physical health. Proper sleep means your body is adequately rejuvenated and is ready to face yet another day with efficiency. When your sleep cycle is disrupted, the entire body mechanism is disturbed. Thus, sleep apnea can turn bothersome if not treated.

What is sleep apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition wherein there can be paused or shallow breathing while the person is asleep. At the time of sleeping, the muscles of the throat and tongue are more relaxed, and the tissues block the passage of air. It is most common in adults, and the primary reason behind it is excess weight and obesity. In the case of children, most common cause of this disorder is enlarged tonsils. Childhood obesity is another cause of this disorder in children.

Complications that could arise if the obstructive sleep apnea is not taken care of

  • Sleep apnea or snoring can disturb your sleep as well people sleeping around you. This disorder raises the chances of health issues like diabetes and high blood pressure. If someone is already suffering from high blood pressure, then sleep apnea can even make it worse.
  • When a person suffering from sleep apnea wakes up at night, his/her body gets stressed which makes the hormone system to go into overdrive which in turn increases the blood pressure of that person. Even the level of oxygen in the blood decreases when one cannot breathe well due to sleep apnea.
  • People suffering from sleep apnea are more likely to have heart attacks.
  • The most common cause for this is the low level of oxygen or the stress of waking up suddenly. A person who is suffering from obesity is more prone to sleep apnea which also makes it harder to slim down. When someone suffers from sleep apnea, that person can have fatty deposits in their neck which block breathing during the night. Also, sleep apnea releases more the hormone named Ghrelin which makes a person suffering from obesity to crave for sweets.
  • Sleep apnea is also a concern with some general anesthesia and certain medications. People suffering from sleep apnea are more prone to face problems or complications at the time of major surgery as they suffer from breathing problems especially when anesthesia is performed and they are laid on their back. It is imperative to consult with the doctor before a major surgery if one is suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

Other health related problems

  • People suffering from sleep apnea are more likely to liver problems. This includes abnormal results on the liver function test, and their liver is most prone to show the signs of scarring. This disorder is also known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea also results to excessive daytime sleepiness which also increases the risk factor for automobile accidents and can also lead to depression.
  • Sleep apnea can also lead to stroke, heart failure, gastroesophageal reflux disease and abnormal rhythm of the heart.
  • Sleep apnea is a common condition with mild to severe levels and can be progressive with age. Because of the complications that can arise due to this condition, it is crucial to get the condition treated as soon as the symptoms are observed.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My father is suffering from Parkinson and he takes syndopa 275 mg which lasts for 4 hours. I have seen many websites ...
Ginkgo biloba is a herbal supplement, used as an antioxidant. It improves blood supply to the brain, n assumes to improve the memory n enhance the thinking ability. But its not the alternative option in Parkinson, but yes there are studies which emphasize the benefits of ginkgo in dementia (Alzheimer). So seen the age of pt even with Parkinson it will be beneficial as an adjuvant. So you should not stop the first line treatment of Parkinson, n can give this ginkgo as a supplement.
