My hand shaking every time due hesitation, anxiety and depression. How can stops fastly?

My hand shaking every time due hesitation, anxiety and depression. How can stops fastly?
Shaking occurs as a result of adrenaline. That makes it hard to stop shaking once you've already started. You can't stop adrenaline. You simply need to wait for it to get used up and control your anxiety in the process. There are a few simple things you can try: •Jog Running may use up adrenaline faster, and help you stop shaking. •Deep Breaths Breathing slow can be helpful for shaking as well. •Yell While you can't do it in public, some people find yelling loudly to be somewhat therapeutic. Some people have trained themselves to shake less. Drinking water and eating healthier may help too. Some people shake worse when their body needs more nutrients or hydration. But in general, the only way to stop shaking is to stop the anxiety that causes it.

What is upper and lower motor nureon and what is it's importance in body and disease related to it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is upper and lower motor nureon and what is it's importance in body and disease related to it.
Upper Motor Neurons (UMN) motoneurons that originate in the cerebral cortex (motor strip), terminating in the brainstem or spinal cord UMNs in the pyramidal tract directly synapse with LMNs UMNs in the extrapyramidal tract synapse with neurons in the red nucleus or the reticular formation UMNs that provide contralateral innervation to LMNs are on the opposite side of the brain as the muscle, UMNs that provide bilateral innervation to LMNs "talk" to muscles on both sides of the body UMNs course through the corona radiata, internal capsule, cerebral peduncle, and finally synapse in the midbrain/pons/medulla/spinal cord Lower Motor Neurons (LMN) motoneurons that originate in the brainstem (cranial nerves) or spinal cord (spinal nerves), terminating at the neuromuscular junction (muscles) all LMNs innervate ipsilateral muscles (the muscle and the LMN that innervates it are always on the same side) LMNs receive input from upper motor neurons from the opposite side of the brain (contralateral UMN innervation) or from both sides of the brain (bilateral UMN innervation) Cranial Nerves with bilateral UMN innervation: V, VII (upper face), IX, X, XI Cranial Nerves with primarily contralateral UMN innervation: VII (lower face), XII LMN Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy. Limb weakness with both lower and upper motor neuron signs is almost always evident but less prominent. UMN- Primary lateral sclerosis is a disease of the upper motor neurons, while progressive muscular atrophy affects only lower motor neurons in the spinal cord. In progressive bulbar palsy, the lowest motor neurons of the brain stem are most affected, causing slurred speech and difficulty chewing and swallowing.

I have facial paraylise for six years. I am 30years age. Someone guide me for this.

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Facial paralysis at your age is mostly due to bells palsy and you need to get it diagnosed correctly. Sometimes our facial nerve stops functioning due to unknow reason and one side of face muscles get weak. Usually the function returns in few weeks to couple months. During that time it is very important to keep these small muscles in face from loosing muscle mass (called atrophy) I can help with an exercise plan to strengthen the face muscles and improve closing of eyes, closing of mouth, smile etc. Keep a positive attitude and keep working at these exs. Check with a neurologist if any meds can help too. Good luck.

Easy Fix to Stop Migraine in Just 3 Minutes

PGDHM, PGCDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Easy Fix to Stop Migraine in Just 3 Minutes
How to stop migraine in 3 minutes

Migraine pain can be very excruciating and can go on for days at an end. Only those who suffer from it know how blinding the pain can be and how badly it disrupts your life and daily schedule right at its onset. At most times, you end up taking painkillers which do not give permanent or immediate relief from pain.

There is one antidote which is known to stop migraine pain in just 3 minutes.
To make this antidote, you will need lemon juice, peel of a lemon and some himalayan salt. Himalayan salt is important because the crystals are packed with rich nutrients - as many as 84!

Mix two teaspoons of himalayan salt with juice of two lemons and grated crust of one lemon. Put the mixture in a jug or a bottle and add a glass of water. Shake or stir it well and drink this water in one go. While the drink doesn't taste very good, it has amazing properties and cures migraine pain within the next three minutes.

If you would like to consult with me privately, please click on'consult.

I have epilepsy problem last 13 years can it will be ok or not .my age is 21 year.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Latur
Epilepsy is debilitating but treatable condition with range of effective medications available today. After having made a confirmed diagnosis of type of epilepsy and according to patients profile, anti-epileptic medicines can be started and seizures (fits) can be brought under control. Along with regular treatment patient and family needs a proper counselling and guidance about nature of condition and necessity of regular treatment as most of the times improper compliance can worsen Epilepsy. Patient also needs to take care of certain specific seizure provoking conditions and family should have a proper plan in place to manage emergencies to prevent any injury. Review of treatment can be done after seizures are brought under control for sufficiently longer duration and decision can be taken to stop medicines if condition of patient permits so. I hope this solves your queries.

Is there a treatment in Homeopathy foe Alzeimer disease early stage. Arrest the same or reverse it?

Homeopath, Kurnool
There is no one diagnostic test that can detect if a person has Alzheimer's disease, but the process involves several kinds of tests and may take more than one day to complete the evaluation. Evaluations may include the following steps: A medical history, which collects information about current mental or physical conditions, prescription and nonprescription drug use, and family health history A mental status evaluation to assess sense of time and place; ability to remember, understand, and communicate; and ability to do simple math problems A physical examination, which includes the evaluation of the person's nutritional status, blood pressure, sensations, balance, and other functions of nervous system Investigations like a brain scan like CT and MRI to detect other causes of dementia such as stroke and laboratory tests, such as blood and urine tests, for checking various components of blood, hormones, enzymes, infections, etc. Treatment: Alzheimer's disease is difficult disorder. Homeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment if not cure. When we discuss the role of medicine for certain diseases, we probably do not talk of the 'cure' in real sense, but more of 'control' and 'relief. AD is one such condition, where homeopathy has following role to play: To control the disease process whereby further deterioration of the brain damage is helped to certain extent To improve to an extent some of the symptoms: communication, failing memory, anxiety, restlessness, etc. If you are serious I'll take up the case through Lybrate. I'll take Rs.500 /- as fees towards taking mind and body symptoms and to keep record. And later whenever you consult I'll take 200/- as fees. If you agree Lybrate will raise a bill and you can pay in their account.

Brain Surgery - When It Is Required?

MBBS, DNB, Fellowship in Neurosurgery
Neurosurgeon, Kolkata
Brain Surgery - When It Is Required?

Brain surgery involves several medical procedures, which incorporate fixing issues with the brain, including changes in the tissues of the brain, cerebrospinal fluid and brain blood flow. Brain surgery is quite a complicated method of surgery and the type of surgery to be conducted depends on the underlying conditions.

Reasons for Brain Surgery:
Brain surgery is performed for the correction of physical brain abnormalities. These abnormalities could occur because of diseases, birth defects and injuries. A brain surgery is required when the following conditions arise in the brain:

  1. Abnormal blood vessels
  2. Aneurysm
  3. Bleeding
  4. Blood clots in the brain
  5. When the protective tissue or dura is damaged
  6. Epilepsy
  7. Due to nerve damage
  8. Parkinson’s disease
  9. Any kind of pressure after an injury
  10. Abscesses
  11. Skull fractures
  12. In case of stroke and tumors

A surgery may not be required for all the above mentioned conditions, but in case of many, a brain surgery is very important as the conditions may worsen health problems.

Types of brain surgeries:

  1. Craniotomy: During this open brain surgery, an incision is made in the scalp, and a hole is created in the skull, near the area, which is being treated. After this process is complete, the hole or bone flap is secured in its place using plates or wires.
  2. Biopsy: This form of brain surgery helps in the removal of a small amount of brain tissues or tumors. After removal, the tissues or tumors are examined under a microscope. The creation of a small incision and a hole in the skull is indicated as a part of this process.
  3. Minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery: This form of brain surgery enables the removal or lesions and tumors via the nose and sinuses. Private parts of the brain can be accessed without creating an incision. An endoscope is utilized in the process which is used to examine tumors all across the brain.
  4. Minimally Invasive neuroendoscopy: This process is similar to the minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery. This method also involves the use of an endoscope for removal of brain tumors. Small, dime sized holes may be made in the skull to access some brain parts.

Risks:
Brain surgeries may be associated with several risks. They may be:

  1. Allergic reactions to anesthesia
  2. Bleeding
  3. Blood clot formations
  4. Swelling of the brain
  5. A state of coma
  6. Impairment in speech, coordination and vision.
  7. Problems in memory
  8. Strokes and seizures
  9. Infections in the brain

A brain surgery is a serious and very complex surgery. There are different kinds of brain surgeries, which are conducted depending on the condition and severity of the disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurosurgeon.

I have epilepsy and had been taking oxetol 450 mg from past 2 yrs. But only seizure has vanished but I still speak in sleep. How to avoid that. Talking in sleep.

MBBS, MD - NEUROPSYCHIATRY

Follow sleep hygiene. Get a EEG done. Exercise daily and you should feel tired at the time of going to sleep. That will improve your sleep qualities and talking will reduce.

Sleep Apnea and Its Link to Heart Failure

DM - Cardiology, MD-Internal Medicine , MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Sleep Apnea and Its Link to Heart Failure

We're all guilty of making fun of snorers, but sometimes this snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where breathing is not continuous and may start and stop many times while asleep. This affects the quality of your sleep and in turn can affect many aspects of your health including your cardiovascular health. Here's how:

High Blood Pressure: When a sleep apnea patient's breathing stops, the oxygen levels in the blood also suddenly fall. This can increase your blood pressure. High blood pressure means that the heart muscles need to work harder to pump blood through the body.

Cardiomyopathy: As a result of high blood pressure, the heart walls may become thicker and the heart muscles become stiffer. This is known as Cardiomyopathy. As this condition worsens, the heart becomes weaker and is unable to maintain a regular rhythm. This can eventually lead to heart failure.

Arrhythmia: An irregular heartbeat is also known as Arrhythmia. This may also be related to the changes in the heart's structure that follow the drop in blood oxygen levels. In many cases, Arrhythmia has no visible symptoms and can often go undiagnosed. This can result in the formation of blood clots in the atria which can lead to a stroke.

Sleep apnea is easy to diagnose. If the doctor feels that you show symptoms of sleep apnea, you may be asked to stay on the hospital overnight and undergo a sleep evaluation. This tests a variety of body functions including brain activity, eye movements, heart rate, breathing patterns and blood oxygen levels.

Treatment for sleep apnea depends on the causes for this condition. If you are overweight, regular exercise and a change in diet can help you lose the excess weight and cure sleep apnea. Similarly, if your sleep apnea is triggered by an allergy, treating the allergy can help cure the sleep apnea. Other forms of treatment for sleep apnea may include:

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): This is a machine which pumps air into the body through a nasal mask. By keeping the pressure in the machine higher than normal air pressure the upper airway passages are kept open and hence the quality of your sleep is improved. An auto CPAP machine can modulate the air pressure such that it is higher when you inhale and lower when you exhale.;

Oral devices: Your doctor may suggest oral devices that allow you to keep your mouth open while you sleep. This is easier to use than CPAP machine but less effective. Surgery is the last resort when it comes to treatment for sleep apnea.
