What medicine can be taken for migraine . I was told to take pain killers but since pain killers are not too good to take often wanted to know of there is any homeopathic medicine that can be taken to reduce it . It comes with a bad headache and if I don't take a pain killer I start vomiting . So I require some medicine to stop the pain immediately.

Sleep Pyschiatry: Its Stages and Benefits

DPM, MBBS

Sleep Pyschiatry: Its Stages and Benefits

Sleep is the normal physiological process of our body which is as important as respiration and digestion. Sleep is vital for maintaining our physical and mental health. Normal adults require 8 hours of sleep every day, whereas it 14 to 15 hours of sleep is recommended for for infants and toddlers.

What are the different stages of Sleep

Every human has a natural circadian clock in their body, which is responsible for maintaining our sleep - wake homeostasis. The different stages of sleep include REM and NREM that is rapid eye movement sleep and non rapid eye movement sleep respectively. REM is the deep sleep stage in which it is very difficult to wake up the person as this stage includes the sensory inhibition and all voluntary muscles along with almost all interactions with the surroundings are inhibited. Therefore, a person’s physical stress and tiredness also gets relieved during this stage of sleep. NREM sleep is the stage between REM and awakening and here the person may have sensory connection with his or her surroundings, but may not respond.

Sleep and its benefits
Sleep and stress have a very strong connection with each other. The best way to relieve stress and any other mental disturbance is sleep. It is essential to have knowledge about sleep psychiatry for almost all physicians as they face many sleep deprived patients in their day to day practice.

  1. Sleep is not only responsible for relieving mental stress and depression, but has other benefits as well
  2. Sleep is also essential for the normal physiological growth in early infancy and it is vital for development of normal alertness, attention and knowledge
  3. It also relaxes our voluntary muscles and thereby, relieves us from physical stress
  4. Sleep disturbance may also aggravate diseases in our body. Sleep is also the state of recovery and healing.

Sleep psychiatry also insist on meditation and ensures that people have normal pattern of sleep, in order to maintain the mental health of the person in a normal state.

My son aged 22 years had fits attack yesterday morning at about 0230 Hrs, In which his jaw got locked and I observed involuntary movement of hand for about a minute, white liquid was coming from his mouth, he was out of sense for about 4 hours, please advice, what is the reason for this and how to ensure that this does not happen in future.

Epileptic fit/seizure is a kind of neurological illness. The cause of seizure is abnormal electrical discharges from a part of brain. The cause of discharge may be a tumor, old trauma, vascular injury or any other brain insult. Many of the time this abnormal electrical activity may be seen in eeg recordings. This is a potentially dangerous situation. You should immediately consult a physician or neurologist who may investigate your son with eeg, mri brain etc and prescribe anti-epileptic medicines for cure. He should avoid cycling, riding bike, swimming, working at height, working near machinery, working near fire or going near water bodies like pond, lake, well, river etc. He will be ok with medicines, but the medicines may be required to be continued for many years. I wish him a better health.

What does an archanoid cyst mean? If it enlarges what happens. Is it brain tumor?
Arachnoid cyst is collection of cerebro-spinal fluid (csf) in a part of brain. Mostly, it is present from birth. If it enlarges in size, it may put pressure on the nearby brain. In that case, it needs to be operated. It is not a brain tumor.
