जाने क्या होता है मिर्गी, दौरे (EPILEPSY) रोग, के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां।

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Jaipur

मिर्गी, दौरे (एपिलेप्सी ) के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां। उन्हें दूर करने का उठाया है बीड़ा डॉ सुरेंद्र खोस्या न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट ने आओ उनका साथ दे ।

मिर्गी कारण, लक्षण और उपचार

मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) Epilepsy / दिमाग यानि मस्तिष्क तंत्र से जुड़ी बीमारी है। जिसमें मस्तिष्क विघुत तरंग विघटन होने पर मस्तिष्क कोशिकओं का शरीर अंगों से अचानक तालमेल बिगड़ जाता है। जिसे र्मिगी दौरा माना जाता है। मिर्गी स्थिति में व्यक्ति अचेत, मूर्छित, शरीर झटपटाना, मुंह से झाग आना, बेहोशी में चला जाता है। और मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति की मांसपेशियों शरीर अकड़ ऐठ जाता है। बार-बार इस तरह के संकेत होने पर उसे मिर्गी दौरा कहा जाता है। मिर्गी दौरे की कोई समय सीमा नहीं होती। मिर्गी दौरा कभी भी रोगी को पड़ सकता है। अकसर मिर्गी दो तरह से होती है। पहला आंशिक रूप, आंशिक रूप दौरा कुछ समय तक रहता है। शुरूआती तौर पर सामान्य लक्षण मौजूद होते हैं। आंशिक र्मिगी दौरे को नजरअंजाद ना करें, समय पर इलाज करवायें। और दूसरा तीब्र व्यापक रूप जिसमें व्यक्ति अचेतना के साथ शरीर हाथ पांव मारना, शरीर अंग अंग पर रगड़, गिरने से सिर, हाथ, पैर चोट लगना, मुंह झाग आदि शामिल है। Mirgi का इलाज मुख्यतय मिरगी रोधी दवाईयों और मस्तिक आॅपरेशन द्धारा किया जाता है। र्मिगी रोग का वक्त पर सही इलाज ना होने से व्यक्ति पागल हो सकता है। 

मिर्गी को लेकर तमाम भ्रांतियां है। अंधविश्वास के कायल ग्रामीण मिर्गी को शरीर का विष मान नीम के पत्ती का जूस या फिर ऐसी गाय जिसने बच्चा न जना हो उसका मूत्र पिलाते है। कहते हैं कि यदि नाक से उल्टी हो जाए तो बीमारी का ठीक होना तय है। लोगों को यह पता ही नही कि इलाज से मिर्गी की बीमारी ठीक हो सकती है।

न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट का कहना है कि मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) दिमाग से जुड़ा एक सामान्य रोग है जिसका इलाज पूरी तरह संभव है। दवाओं के प्रयोग से 80फीसदी रोगी ठीक हो जाते हैं और बाकी 20फीसदी रोगियों को ऑपरेशन की जरूरत पड़ती है। इस रोग के पीछे कोई अभिशाप या भूत-प्रेत नहीं होता। डॉ खोस्या ने बताया कि पूरे देश के आंकड़ों पर गौर करें तो व्‍यस्‍कों में हर सौ पर एक व्‍यक्ति तो बच्‍चों में एक हजार पर एक मिर्गी रोग से पीडि़त है। डॉ खोस्या बताते  हैं कि समय पर इलाज हो जाने से दर्जनों युवक और युवतियों की शादी टूटने से बच गई।

 

मिर्गी आने के कारण / Epilepsy Causes

  • सिर में पुरानी चोट दर्द रहने से
  • रक्त से ग्लूकोज मात्रा कम होना
  • मस्तिष्क में आॅक्सीजन की कमी
  • मस्तिष्क न्यूराॅन्स असंतुलन
  • पूरी नींद नहीं लेना
  • दवाईयों के दुष्परिणाम से
  • ब्रेन ट्यूमर से
  • शरीर में विषाक्त पदार्थों को ज्यादा बनना
  • जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग
  • मिर्गी जांच / Epilepsy Check up
  • गिर्गी संकेत होने पर जांच E.E.G. Electroencephalogram तकनीक द्वारा
  • Brain C.T. Scan द्वारा
  • C.T. Scan, Brain MRI द्वारा
  • मिर्गी दौरा पीड़िता/ पीड़ित पर ध्यान देने वाली जरूरी बातें / Epilepsy Awareness टिप्स

 

  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को कभी अकेला ना छोड़ें। हमेशा आसपास नजदीकी बना कर रखें।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़े व्यक्ति को जमीन पर ना लिटायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़ित व्यक्ति को पानी, गीली जगह, लाल रंग से दूर रखें।
  • मिर्गी ग्रसित व्यक्ति को दौरा पड़ने पर चोट लगने से बचायें।
  • मिर्गी के दौरान व्यक्ति की जीभ दांतों में मध्य आने से बचायें।
  • दांतों जकड़ने से बचायें, अकसर दांतों के बीच होंठ, जीभ जकड़ जाती है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीडिता को होश में लाने के लिए चेहरे पर ठंड़े पानी के छींटे मारे। 
  • बेहाशी अचेत अवस्था में पीड़ित को तुलसी पत्तें, लहसुन मसलकर सुंघायें तुलसी और लहसुन बेहोशी तोड़ने में सहायक है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीड़िता को पेट के बल पर लिटायें, जिससे झाग, लार नांक में जाने से बचायें। और गर्दन ऊपर की ओर रखें।
  • दौरा पीड़िता के गले, मुंह पर तंग, टाईट कपड़े से बचायें। 
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति के आस पास भीड़ ना करें। ताजी हवा खुला वातावरण बनायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को जूता अन्य तेज गंध ना सुघांयें।
  • व्यक्ति को प्राथमिक इलाज के लिए तुरन्त हस्पताल ले जायें।

No, but behind extensive crying there must have been some serious stressful condition which can lead to high blood pressure as well as brain hemorrhage.

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.

Know More About Facial Injuries

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi

Hello friends, I am Dr Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant of cosmetic and plastic surgeon. Today I am going to talk about a very common topic, that is Facial injuries. Now this is something which we see very common in our day to day life. Face is comprising of a lot of structures; the skin, there is the subcutaneous tissues, there are muscles, then there is bone underneath it. So when we talk about facial injuries, we can divide them broadly into two types:

  •  One is the simple injuries and
  • The complex facial injuries.

Now the simple injuries are the one, which we see like, our kids, they fall in the house, and they have cuts, and they have continuous lacerated wounds.

The complex facial injuries are seen when there are road traffic accidents, where there are deep cuts right up to the muscle and there are fractures of these bones.

So these are the common types of injuries related to face. Now the question which next comes to our mind is, what to do?

So in case of facial injuries, what is required to be to be done is, whenever such injuries happen, we need to apply some pressure on that, so that the bleeding stops. And if you are concerned about good scars and better looking sutured wounds, then you should consult a plastic surgeon to get it sutured. And in any case, it has to repaired, it has to be stitched. This is how the management of simple injuries is done.

But in case of complex injuries, they require advanced management, wherein not only a plastic surgeon but also a neurosurgeon and many other surgeons are involved because these injuries are usually not isolated injuries. They occur with head injuries also, and many times there are injuries to other parts of the body also. So it is better to take the patient to a better hospital. So in such injuries, what we usually do is, once the patient is stabilised, such injuries, for example a fractures, requires fixation.

Fixation means, is very similar to fracture of the hand or the limb, there is plating and screws and clamps and plasters and related things. The principles are similar for all these things also. So we use very fine, titanium plates for fractures.

The common fractured parts are the upper maxilla, or the lower maxilla or the mandible. The importance in such facial injuries, there are two priorities:-

  •  One is , the patient should be able to eat, even after these injuries and fractures. Because once these bones are fractured, it becomes very difficult to eat so the main priority is that the patient should be able to eat even after these injuries.
  • The second thing is, the lower part of the eye. So, there should be no problem in the vision, as well as the cosmetic outcome. So these bones are put back together anatomically by plating and fixation. So that the patient can lead a normal life, i.e, having a normal vision, and is able to eat properly.

So these are the principles required for practical fixation of complex facial injuries.

Now, to know more about these types of injuries you can get in touch with me on Lybrate. Thank You.

I am 62 years old man suffering from anxiety and depression with insomnia. Please suggest any remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am 62 years old man suffering from anxiety and depression with insomnia. Please suggest any remedy.
I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success. For the insomnia please do the following: Yoga, meditation, and stress management exercises with definitely help. You must also do vigorous exercise every day, whether you get sleep or not. You should wake up at a uniform time every day, even if you don’t get sleep. You could sleep in the afternoon but try not to exceed 20 minutes to catch up with lost sleep, and that too only if necessary. Ideally, it is better not to sleep during the day at all. Even if you do not get sleep get to bed at a uniform time like 10.30 and just lie down and read some non-stimulating material. In the lying down position the body tends to regress to a childlike state and will induce sleep. Do not get up to switch off the light, and so you need to arrange for a bed lamp that can be put off at a stretch of a hand. Do not take alcohol, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. before going to bed. A warm glass of milk before bedtime improves sleep for various reasons. Have dinner early and always make it a pure carbohydrate meal that can be had with any vegetables. Make the room as dark as possible but warm and cozy. Block out all forms of light entering the room through windows. The room must have reasonable cross-ventilation. There must not be any LED lights nearby your bed. Reduce all kinds of sounds around you: light music may be put on if it induces sleep for you with the ‘sleep’ function on. In rare cases you could watch TV in a lying position and switch off when you feel drowsy. There are some odors that could stimulate you and prevent sleep from happening; kindly examine that – this includes perfumes, soap scents, and even laundry detergents. Check out if a warm or cold bath induces sleep for you, and do that before retiring. If you have exhausted yourself through exercise, you will find it easier to relax into a stupor. Contemplate on calm and relaxing thoughts while in bed: decontaminate your mind from all the stresses of the day before going to bed. You could acquire a recording of gradual relaxation and guided relaxation routines. Sleep with your head facing North, and do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. Sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Try these for now and if these fail you must meet with a counselor and work out other matters that may be causing the insomnia.
