Hi. As you said, your bp is fluctuating, and you also notice some facial hair growth. You should consult a gynaecologist in you town and let her judge weather you need any further investigation for these things. Heart doctors have less role to play in your case. Take care.

My son is 18 years old. First time seizures started at night 3. 30am on 9th may 2014, than after one month brain disturbed and 3rd time at 12. 30pm like seizures. Now eptoin tablets takes daily. What is best treatment?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Best treatment can be outlined by your consultant neurologist. It is not the question of best treatment. It is important to select the most effective medicine, in single or in combination, that is required for your son and that will be done by a neurologist. So please follow his advice. If eptoin has kept your son's seizure under control over last one year, I feel, he is under able hand.

If this is since last few months, then it may be either due to anxiety or excessive alcohol abuse. Stop consuming alcohol completely if doing so. Try to be relaxed. Take balanced meal in time, do regular exercise, yoga meditation etc. Listen to soothing music at evening, have adequate rest and sleep. If still feeling anxious and under-confident then consult a psychiatrist who may help you in reducing your anxiety and boosting your confidence. All the best.

Migraine - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat it!

Are you looking for an ideal treatment and management for various kinds of headaches? Do you suffer from migraine headaches? You should opt for Ayurvedic treatment, which is considered to be very effective in dealing with headaches of various types.

Migraine headaches

Migraine is a form of headache that is known as Sooryavata according to Ayurvedic principles. Such headaches worsen during sunrise, peak during the afternoon and tend to reduce during evening. Migraine occurs because of an excessive stimulation of blood vessels in the brain. A person affected with migraine is likely to experience nausea and vomiting, along with a throbbing headache on one side of the head. Migraine headaches can be caused due to hormonal changes, allergy from certain food items or excess stress. Apart from regular exercises and a proper diet, the most effective Ayurvedic remedies for dealing with migraine headaches are as follows:

  • Shirolepa or the applications of herbal pastes on the head is effective for pacifying pitta dosha. Camphor, jatasmansi, and sandalwood are also effective.
  • Shiro Dhara, an Ayurvedic therapy, where a thin stream of liquid is poured over your scalp is helpful.
  • Taila dhara is effective for migraine headaches as well, in which oils such as chandanadi taila and ksheerabala taila are used for treatment.

Cluster headaches
Cluster headaches refer to headaches on one side of the head. It is known as Suryavartham according to Ayurveda. These consist of a series of short, but painful headaches, stretched over weeks or months together. Such headaches occur because of disruptions in the nervous system. Usually, the pain starts early in the morning in the eyes. There are several Ayurvedic remedies for the management of cluster headaches. Some of them are as follows:

  • Use an ointment or paste made of dried ginger and Kermpferia.
  • Use a paste of Indian aloe vera, asafoetida and coriander for pain relief.
  • Grind cumin seeds and mix it with lemon juice. Keep the mixture on the painful area of your head for quick relief.
  • Have coconut water.

Recurrent headaches
Any form of headache, which tends to reoccur after some time instead of ending is referred to as recurrent headache. There are several Ayurvedic remedies for the effective management of recurrent headaches. They as are as follows:

  • Boil one teaspoon of haritaki powder in water and drink it.
  • Massage your neck gently using warm calamus root oil.
  • Lie down with your nostrils parallel to the ceiling, and apply sesame oil in your nostrils. This is known as nasal therapy.

There are several other Ayurvedic remedies that are effective in dealing with all forms of headaches. You should consult an Ayurvedic practitioner for getting the most ideal remedy for your problem.

What are the symptoms of migraine. If the nerve of neck get stiff then do I consult the doctor for assessment. Is it asign of migraine. Because I continuously work on system.

BPT, MPT - Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Hello lybrate user I think you are asking about headache. It's depending upon the site or area of head. As you have already mentioned regular sitting work on computer system. So firstly it can be neck pain because of long time your neck having or attained same position. It gets muscle weakness and pain. Secondly due to over stressed eyes like vision problem can also create head pain but surrounding eyes and forehead. If headache has been not treated it tends to be converted in migraine. You can consult to good physician.

My father in law who is 61 yrs now had undergone angioplasty in 2007. The stent was inserted through the right side. From last year there is numbness (less sensation) on the right thigh and pain occurs when he stands for a long time or walks for about 2 kms. Is it due to the operation or some other cause? kindly advice.
