Hello, first of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection wth its full immunity and start the below medication:- take gelesemium 200, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. In case of high uncontrollable fever, don't panic you should do cold sponging to lower down the temperature. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

MD - Psychiatry

Yes severe stress can lead to metabolic changes inside body and produce seizures, did you get an EEG done. If so what were the results then and now. If a person has single episode of seizure and is seizure free for 2 years, the drugs can be stopped.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are ok. T3 & T4 are within normal limit. But TSH is slightly higher. But there is no need for any treatment with regard to thyroid.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There could be many reasons for this, actually this sensation is what we call as paraesthesia and signifies nerve irritation/compression somewhere along the course right from lower back to compartments around ankle. My advise will be for 2-3 weeks try with physical therapy (tens as a modality), you can initiate with small dose of gabapentin or pregabalin and vitamin b 12 and see whether there is any improvement in symptoms in 10-15 days time or not? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Causes Behind Migraine

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi

A migraine is a headache that causes a distinct pulsating pain, usually in one side of the head. It is different from normal headaches in the sense that the pain is much more intense and it may be accompanied by nausea or vomiting as well. Some patients have also complained about light sensitivity while others have also complained about pain in all areas of the head.

Some of the factors that separate a migraine from a normal headache are as follows:
While a headache may last at best a day, migraines may last longer, sometimes even up to 3 days.

  1. Feelings of nausea or actual vomiting
  2. Sensitivity to light
  3. Extreme sensitivity to changes in sound

Causes behind migraine
Some of the common and known causes, which may trigger migraines in people are:

  1. Hormonal changes in the body that may have adverse effects
  2. Dehydration is also known to trigger migraines
  3. Patients with hypoglycemia may also face migraines if the blood sugar level drops within their body
  4. 4 Change in air pressure due to change in altitude may also cause migraines to appear
  5. Lack of sleep
  6. Stress
  7. Lifestyle issues such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

Homeopathic Approach

The role of Homeopathy is to break the recurrence of the headaches and cure them completely.

For which we need to understand what allopathic pain killers do and what constitutional Homeopathic treatment do

With Constitutional Homeopathic Treatment  the frequency, intensity and duration of migraine attacks goes down and the things which generally are able to precipitate migraine , if are not able to, then only it can be claimed to be cured.

The role of pain killers and antacids are basically to tide over the acute phase or provide comfort for the time being.

That is why the coming together of Allopathy, to control acute attack and Homeopathy, to cure it completely, will prove to be a new form of synthesis which will be a  boon for the society.

Brainstem tumors are hard to operate since they are surrounded by extremely important tracts and centers that control many vital functions. Though a good MRI with tractography can sometimes show a safe corridor. For surgery.

Brain Tumor - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

IFAANS, DNB (Neurosurgery), MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Ghaziabad
Brain Tumor - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

There is no trustworthy evidence regarding what causes brain tumors, but there are a few risk factors that have been substantiated through research. Children and young people who receive radiation around the head are susceptible to developing tumors in the brain once they grow up. Also, people with a certain kind of rare genetic condition like neurofibromatosis may develop a brain tumor though such cases are very few in number. Age is also an important factor as people aged over 65 years are diagnosed with brain tumors at quadruple times higher than children and younger people.

Types of Brain Tumours:

A primary brain tumor originates in the brain, and they may or may not be cancerous. Some tumors can be benign, which do not spread in the surrounding tissues and are not very malicious. However, that does not signify that they will not cause any harm over time. Sometimes these tumors can be severe and cause a threat to the life of the sufferer. The National Cancer Institute reports that approximately there were 23, 380 fresh cases of brain tumors in 2014.

Identifying the Symptoms of Brain Tumors:

The symptoms of the brain tumor are dependent on various factors such as the size, type as well as the exact location of the tumor. These symptoms are triggered when any tumor is pressed or clashed against a nerve or disturbs a part of the brain. Symptoms are also felt when any tumor particle blocks the fluid flowing around the brain or when there is a swelling in the brain owing to the build-up of fluid.

Common symptoms include: headaches that get worse in the morning, nausea along with vomiting, an alteration in the speech, hearing and imbalances in walking and movement, mood swings, change in personality and ability to concentrate or remember things and seizures or convulsions.

Treatment for Brain Tumor:

Surgery is normally the most usual treatment for brain tumors, and the patient is given anesthesia, and the scalp is shaved before the surgery. Then, craniotomy is performed to open the skull, and the surgeon removes a bone piece out of the skull. Then the tumor is removed as much as possible. The bone is then restored back, and the incision on the scalp is closed. Sometimes surgery is not viable in case the tumor has developed in the brain stem or some other complex parts.

Neurosurgeons can surgically remove some tumors completely (called resection or complete removal). If the tumor is near sensitive areas of the brain, neurosurgeons will only be able to remove part of it (called partial removal). Even partial removals can relieve symptoms and facilitate or increase the effectiveness of other treatments.

The role of surgery in treating brain tumors:

Surgery can provide:

  • The complete removal of some brain tumors
  • A sample to enable doctors to diagnosis the tumor and recommend the most appropriate treatment
  • Better quality of life:
    • Reduced symptoms and improved ability to function (e.g., to think, speak or see better)
    • Less pressure within the skull from the tumor
    • A longer life

In case you or any of your near ones is affected with brain tumor, you should visit the doctor to know the possible treatments other than surgery and other important questions related to brain tumor.

It will become normal. And don't worry about scars, its going to be a cosmetic surgery anyway. So there won't be any scars remaining. Go for it. All the best. Take care.:)

Not all brain tumor is cancer. But if it is large, it will most probably require surgery. Other non surgical options like Gamma knife and Cyber knife are available for certain types of tumours. I can give you a definite opinion if I can see all the MRI films.
