My son is suffering from severe headache for the last six months and about three years back also while he was a student of architecture he had similar type of headache.Ct scan,mri-brain scan,mri-spinalscan, and color doppler test all shows no abnormality. A good neurologist of chennai who consulted him for a few weeks declared him normal. But he still complaints that he has headache however it is subsided by 50% now. We tried accupunture and yoga theraphy also(by qualified persons ).He is unable to concentrate and hence not going for work . He does'nt havr thr problem of vision also . He is 23 yrars old. Also while he was a kid he attended a boarding school. He is not sure whether he had any injury to his head at that time. Also the mri brain scan taken 3 yrs back also had no abnormal reports . Pls advice.

Kindly refer a general physician for your symptoms who can then refer to a specialist if needed. Try to have 2-3 litres water daily to avoid dehydration which gives similar symptoms. Avoid skipping meals. Eat small meals at 2-3 hr interval. Include groundnuts, oilseeds- ex til chikki/ladoo, whole legumes-nutrella/rajma/soyabean/chola/chana, whole grains- ex bajra/ragi/wheat malt with milk & sugar, cheese, paneer, fresh fruit juice, banana, dates, dry fruits, milkshake, egg, fatty fish, chicken in your daily diet.

Right side of my brain I get light swelling some time when I was in stress and pressure. So I wanna reason for this. Is this brain tumor.

M.S (surgery), M.Ch - Neuro Surgery
Neurosurgeon, Gurgaon
Cause of brain tumor is not known. There are only a few known risk factors exposure to radiation, pre existing genetic conditions. Previous cancers headache not responding to routine medication gradually become more frequent and more severe, unexplained projectile vomiting. Changes in mental ability / personality / concentration / memory. Voice change, speech difficulty. Visual disturbances such as diminished vision, blurred vision, double vision. Gait disturbance difficulty in balancing not able to walk straight. Convulsions episodes of loss of consciousness. Consult a neurosurgeon who is trained to handle brain tumors. These days multiple treatment options are available for brain tumors but primary treatment still is surgical removal.

Two years back she was having pain in knees. After sitting she the pain was worst. After seeing a physician we went to a neurologist. He said that certain nerves were pinched after an x ray. She was prescribed pregabalin and some other medicines. After two months she got a fit lasting for a minute only. We stopped that medicine and went to another neurologist. He said that there is no problem with nervous system and that knee pain is due to weight. He advised for a CT scan which was normal. However he prescribed Oxetol 300 mg and 450 mg for 3 years. After one month she was tired with the medicine and stopped. Everything was normal for two years. Then again she was having severe pain in leg. We went to another physician and he gave medicines for neuropathic pain of which pregabalin was a medicine. After using for one month she got a fit during night. This time the duration was even shorter. Both times it happened when she awoke in night and fainted. She told a feeling of anxiety that night before sleeping and told her head went numb or cold. We went to physician. He checked history stopped all medicines only giving oxetol 300mg in the morning and 450mg in the evening. Two months passed and she is fine. Very slight pain in knees also. But the doctor says she had to take this medicine for 5 years. Please advice us. We do not know whether she is having epilepsy or it was side effect of the medicines given for neuropathic pain.

I do not think it is becase of side effect. It is because of epilepsy only. And she need to continue the treatment for 5 yrs. Even if she donot have epilepsy this drugs wil not harm her.
