Sir I am 36 years old. My wife who is detected now as an epilepsy patient. First incident of seizure took place on 10th march when she became unconscious for 5to 6 seconds. On 30th april again she became unconscious. At the very time she made a groaning sound, starred and urine came out. On 10th may she was first detected as epilepsy by a neurologist. The doctor prescribed valprolcr500 and folvite. After 5 month on 6th october again she became unconscious. I also visited a neuropsychriatist who prescribed nexito10 and lonazep0. 25 along with the above medicine. Now I am very tensed have a 14 months baby. I am very introvert and sometimes suffer from depression because of being unemployed in spite of being getting a job. Sir is there any restriction to eat chicken ,mutton or fast foods? My weight has decreased from 59 to 53. Is it a result of side effect of the medicine? Will my seizure be under control or not? I am very tensed. I have a baby of 14 months. After delivery still my period does not begin. Has it a connection with epilepsy? Does my epilepsy connect with any gyno problem? Please advice me sir.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Udaipur
Amenorrhoea after 14 month of delivery is a common phenomena. Its not related with your current epileptic episode or medicine related to it. Because of stress in your life related to your job and wife medical condition its might be possible you become depressed and it is only reason you lost your weight. I advise you to consult neuropsychiatriat who will guide you how you could balance between your personal and professional life.

I am 39 years old. I am suffering from servical problem with numbness in left thumb from 3 months. These happened from bike skiting that was controlled by right hand but suddenly a jerk happened in the left side of neck. I felt this could be ok later and went to the barber who massaged the neck and the problem started from there. I went to the nuro doctor but his treatment was not satisfied. Now there is a pain in my waist also from two days. Please suggest me what should have to I do?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Regarding your numbness in your hand which has started after massage or whatever that was, you need to get mri of your neck region done so that we can see what kind of pressure is there. As far as your waist pain goes, if it is your lower back which you are talking about and if there are no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I feel very weak when I get up in the morning, my hands start shaking when hold something. What should I do to overcome this weakness. I drink enerzal daily and eat food on time as well. What should be done in this case? Awaiting for quick response!

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
You can feel weak due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you do .

Hi m 20 year old, I have migraine since 1 year, regularly m not taking medicines Is there any other options instead of having medicines.

You should take ayurveda medicine because ayurveda cures. If you don't want to take any medicine then you should put 2 drop of pure cow ghee (indian) 2 times a day. After 1 month your complain will cure about 70-80%

My father had cardiac arrest after which he was treated with CPR. The entire process after cardiac arrest to hospital was for 5-10 mins and CPR lasted for 15-20 mins. He had seizures after CPR where his MRI result indicates damage to brain. He is in coma for last 1 week (exactly after the cardiac arrest). Though 2 days back he opened his eyes till 1/3rd of original but not at command. And he makes some facial expression while entering tube into his mouth or using suction pipe into his mouth. Please help me understand his chances of recovery. And how soon I can expect him to come out of coma? Appreciate your help!

This situation may be due to decreased oxygen supply to brain during the time of cardiac arrest. Brain will with stand few minutes without oxygen supply. If the time exceeds brain cells will go for damage. Sometimes it slowly recover depends upon his brain damage. He needs aggressive rehabilitation after weaning off from ventilator. Regards.

I have sleep paralysis. Is it ok to have it or should I start to take cure of it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Sleep paralysis is more common in people who are sleep deprived, so getting enough sleep may help to reduce the number of episodes of sleep paralysis you have. Most adults need six to eight hours of good quality sleep each night. Keeping to a regular sleeping schedule, where you go to bed at roughly the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, can also help. Tips for improving your sleeping habits include: creating a restful sleeping environment that's quiet, dark and not too hot or cold ensuring your bed is comfortable exercising regularly (but not too close to bedtime) cutting down on caffeine not eating or drinking alcohol before bedtime giving up smoking (if you smoke) because nicotine is a stimulant.

I am 26 years old, can you suggest me how to treat migraine and I also have hormone disbalance, what shall I do, suggest some Ayurvedic medicine, or homemade remedies.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Hi, Migraine can be triggered by a variety of causes, most common causes are certain food items, lack of sleep or any lifestyle issues. First step towards management of Migraine would be avoiding such triggers. Home remedies would not be a cure for issues like migraine. If the correct type of Migraine is identified, most of the issues can be usually in 3-4 months. Wish you the best Take care.

From early childhood, I have severe hearing loss in my right ear. I do not remember whether it was from birth or was a result of some hitting done on my right ear by one of the bullies (i remember the incident remotely, though can not attribute the hearing loss to that). My left ear is perfect and am a healthy guy of 42 years doing very well professionally and part of top management in one of the reputed companies. I had at the age of 18 years went for a ent check up where they diagnosis as severe hearing loss in the right ear. However, when I put in a earphone in my right ear and tightly close my left ear to close any sound, I can remotely hear, but only very light sounds. My query is, can I try to recover my right ear hearing or leave it? Is there any hope of recovery? Though you might say it needs to be checked, but what do you make out first cut from the details that I have provided? Now a days with so much advances in med sciences, I am hoping you cd help me with your valuable advice and way forward.

hi, if its severe loss or damage to your inner ear unfortunately it cannot be reveresed. like you mentioned in the comment that science have advanced to the extent to help the patient to hear better with a better hearing aid and customised solutions as per the reqyirment of the patient. if the loss is creating a serious impact on your lifestyle or ur profession would suggest you to go for a good hearing device. if you are shy to wear a external device you have various models which can fit inside your ear as well and that may give a bit of sigh from your condition

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

Dear seizure can occur at any age but also it can have many reasons. From your statement it seems that low sodium might be a cause. Low potassium does not cause seizure. However please upload all test results for a proper diagnosis and then a management plan.

This is called as "sleep paralysis". It usually occurs during REM sleep and is a type of sleep-wake disorder, when your brain is awakened from form sleep but body is not yet. So u tend to have a feeling of inability to move. Usually if it occurs once in a while it is physiological. But if it occurs more often then I would suggest you go for a Sleep study and complete evaluation with EEG

I am a 37 yrs male. I am having pins and needles on my inner side of the right foot for the past 4 days. I am feeling like having numbness too. What should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. These sensations are actually called as paresthesias and are symptoms due to nerve involvement. There are many causes, but seeing your age, I will ask you to observe it for some time, rule out diabetes, spinal origin of your symptoms. You can meanwhile initiate with physical therapy - tens for 10-14 days and see whats happening. Sometimes these maybe just due to deficiency of important vitamins like vitamin b12, b6, vitamin d etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
