Dizziness Vertigo and Unsteadiness

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore

What is dizziness, vertigo and disequilibrium?

Dizziness, vertigo and disequilibrium are common symptoms and most of us have experienced momentary symptoms. They are all symptoms that can result from a peripheral vestibular disorder (a dysfunction of the balance organs of the inner ear) or central vestibular disorder (brain and pathways connecting brain to inner ear).
Dizziness is a sensation of lightheadedness, faintness, or unsteadiness.

It can be caused by heart disease, brain related causes like stroke, prolong illness, psychological issues, side effect of certain medications, blood pressure fluctualtions and many other condiions.

Vertigo has a rotational, spinning component, and is the perception of movement, either of the self or surrounding objects. Its a common symptom in inner ear disorders. Some of the conditions that cause vertigo are: bppv or positional vertigo, menieres, labrynthitis, vestibular neuritis, mal de barquement syndrome, perilymph fistula, toxicity of ears due to certain antibiotics, acoustic neuroma etc.

Disequilibrium means unsteadiness, imbalance, or loss of equilibrium. It can occur as a primary symptom or along wth vertigo and dizziness.

Vestibular rehabiliation can help decrease these symptoms. If you wish to know in detail please click on private consultation.

This happens to many guys, and it has become a problem to many of them. After the first round of sex, their penis could not even stand erect again. There are 4 possible causes why you can’t last longer to be able to go for the second round of sex. If you’re able to get rid of these causes, you’ll get yourself back again and again with harder erection. The four possible causes of lack of sexual energy are; Stress, Lack of exercise (fitness), Good nutrition and Health. Homoepathic treatment help to gain sexual energy without side effects and get harder erection soon.

If you have diabetes (fasting >126 mg and pp >200 mg) then treatment with appropriate drugs is a must. By avoiding to take drugs you are inviting the serious long term complications of diabetes. Diabetes causes upset in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, it affects small and large blood vessels, affects eyes (retina), kidneys causing total failure, affect neres - neuropathy, affects lower limbs and heart. So proper treatment is absolutely essential. In addition to drugs, strict diet control and exercise to maintain or reduce weight is also necessary.

I am suffering from constipation and stomach pain while going to the bathroom for the past 3 days.

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Aurangabad
I am suffering from constipation and stomach pain while going to the bathroom for the past 3 days.
Being constipated means your bowel movements are difficult or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone has it at some point in life, and it's usually not serious. Still, you'll feel much better when your system is back on track. The normal length of time between bowel movements varies widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements three times a day. Others have them only once or twice a week. Going longer than three or more days without one is usually too long. After three days, the stool or feces become harder and tougher to pass. Homeopath can effectively help in such condition.

I thought desi ghee is better for daily use than any oil be it olive or other refined oil. Is not it?

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hyderabad
I thought desi ghee is better for daily use than any oil be it olive or other refined oil. Is not it?
Desi Ghee has Saturated Fatty Acids (SFA). Olive is (MUFA) and most of other refined oils have PUFA. For a normal person following todays sedentary lifestyle, should have about 6 teaspoons of oils. Total per day. In that you can have 3 PUFA. 2 MUFA. 1 SFA. This ration can be varied. The other thing to understand is that every food is good till the time it is within daily calorie limits and is balanced between Fats: Carbs:Protiens. Anything extra is bad. So to say that >> 'Ghee is Good/Better' << is an incomplete statement. For a wrestler or Olympic swimmer. 20 spoons per day may be good. But for an office worker. 20 spoons per day will lead to obesity and cholesterol / cardiac issues. Bottomline is that - nutrition items are always to be seen in a context.

If you have regular 28 to 30 days cycles then pregnancy is unlikely from this episode alone. However in order to prevent any unwanted pregnancy you cannot rely on withdrawal method alone and need to use regular contraception like pills or injection or condoms or consider a coil
