This is due to all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

I have a problem on insomnia. I get a very weak sleep. A pin drop noise wakens me up. I sleep for hardly 2 hours a day. I tried counting backwards. But I could count from 10000 and reach 0 but didn't sleep. I tried many suggestions from peers to tire my mind but thoughts don't stop. And I am always conscious, anxious about getting things done in time and incidences don't leave my memory. Please suggest me a way to overcome this. Its getting over my mind. And I am growing less capable intellectually day by day.

There are certain things which you can try. Like walk for 10-15 mins before you going to sleep, take banana before sleep, try to read a magazine or try to listen soft music. Sit firstly on bed take some deep breath in with nose expel with mouth. If you dnt feel sleepy do not just lie down on bed. Rather walk in the room. Take dinner atlst 1 hour before your schedule bed time. Don't watch tv or mobiles. Switch off them. There are sooo mny tips that I can give u.if you follow regularly and continued with homoeopathic treatment I think you will be benefited. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate.

Hello only medicines will not help het. You need to find out the reason behind it. Medicines will give symptomatic relife. You need to correct her eating habits. Do consult for further treatment. Till then suggested to take pathyadi kadha 3 spoons with warm water for 2 times for 8 days. 1 tsf of avipattikar churna at night while sleeping with warm water. Consult after 8 days.

When my mom was young at the age of 20 she had an accident and had a brain surgery. And now she is 47 years old and she is suffering from memory loss and When she looses her memory she talks something senseless which does not have any link with our personal life. Please doctor help us is it urgent to admit her ?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Hi lybrate-user, head injury can cause several problems not only memory loss. A head injury about 27 years ago must have done some structural changes inside your mom's brain which r responsible for this. A brain injury can change a personality. At times it requires treatment, both pharmacological n nonpharnacological. But at the same time care givers need some training how to tackle this kind of problems in a sympathetic way. So it will b better to consult with both a neurologist n a psychiatrist. Thanks.

Sleep apnea. Doctor said to go for surgery for nose, tongue and uvula. Is it necessary to go for surgery ?

DNB(Respireatory diseases), M.D
Pulmonologist, Coimbatore
Treatment for sleep apnea : 1.Mechanical devices like CPAP 2.Intraoral devices 3.Surgery But surgery is suitable for very selective patients who have anotomical problems which are correctable. Severe nasal septal deviation, large tongue base, tonsilar enlargement, retrognatia are few correctable problems.Please do CT Scan of the face and dynamic sleep MRI. Then only we can decide on surgery . Otherwise surgery will not be helpful.

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy is a brain triggered disorder that can result in the affected person having seizures or convulsions of the body. Such convulsions last about a few minutes and the person undergoing epileptic seizure might be unaware of what’s happening to him/her during those brief moments. They may recover and appear disoriented for a few minutes more.

Epilepsy can’t be cured but is treated through medicines called anticonvulsant drugs.

  1. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder brought about due to unusual electrical activity in the brain
  2. The person having the disorder can have episodes of seizures where there can be sudden involuntary movements of the person’s whole body and shaking of the arms and legs lasting a few minutes
  3. The condition can occur to anybody irrespective of age but children seem to suffer more from the condition following a head injury or emotional trauma
  4. Electroencephalogram or EEG is the best way for the doctor to understand the exact nature of the disorder and this will help in the treatment.
  5. Treatment through drugs is the most popular way of keeping the convulsions under check
  6. Medically, if the patient goes without seizures for a few years under regular medication then there is every possibility the person may not suffer further convulsions
  7. Apart from medication, dietary regulations have also been adopted by many physicians to treat the condition. Low carb and high protein items are advised as a way to reduce/stop the epileptic seizures
  8. In some cases, the doctor might decide to conduct a surgery to remove the aberrant part of the brain to treat the individual for epilepsy
  9. People with epilepsy have to take a lot of precautions in their daily routines to avoid getting seriously injured if they were to suffer a sudden attack of seizures
  10. Driving and swimming are to be avoided by them
  11. People standing around can help reduce the suffering by turning the person over to one side and offering a support to the head. Care can also be taken to remove any object that can cause injury to the person while having the convulsions.
  12. Some doctors study the pattern of the seizures occurring and help in regulating them in such a manner that the person gets the convulsions only in the nights while asleep
  13. This can limit the damage done to the person and can also help the person in going about normal routines
  14. Parents must inform the school authorities if their children suffers from epilepsy so that they can provide first aid to such students immediately if episodes occur in school

Epilepsy is a brain-related disorder that can cause the person to go through involuntary shaking of the body and the limbs. It is usually treated with drugs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

Klatskin Tumour - Understanding It In Detail!

MD, MBBS
Oncologist, Ernakulam
Klatskin Tumour - Understanding It In Detail!

A fifty-four years old Marwari patient from Assam presented with progressive jaundice and intermittent episodes of abdominal pain for three months. CT scan of abdomen showed a small (1.5 x 1.5 cm) mass in the bifurcation of common bile duct which is causing biliary tract obstruction and hence jaundice. Portal nodes were not enlarged and there was no lesion in the liver parenchyma. At presentation, serum bilirubin level was high (14.7 mg/dl). Endoscopic biopsy and brushing cytology was adenocarcinoma and clinic-radiological diagnosis was ‘Klatskin tumour’. 

  • Metallic stenting was done to relieve jaundice and after stenting serum bilirubin level came down rapidly. PET scan showed increased uptake in the biliary duct region mass without any sign of metastasis. He was evaluated and planned for treatment with robotic radiosurgery. He was treated using robotic radiosurgery (CyberKnife) with high precision radiotherapy technique after fiducial placement (gold seeds) near the tumour. After one year, the patient had no obvious complain, liver function (no jaundice) was normal and CT scan evaluation showed completed resolution of the mass.  
  • Klatskin tumour is an uncommon tumour that arises from the bifurcation of common bile duct in the abdomen (duct that drains bile from liver). Patients usually present with progressive (increasing) persistent jaundice followed by pain in the upper abdomen. Surgical excision is the mainstay of treatment. However, surgery is not possible in majority of the patients owing to the location of the tumour, high jaundice and medical condition. Chemotherapy may not be an optimal option in majority of the patients as they present with high jaundice. Majority of such patients with poor medical condition are treated with only supportive care and prognosis is dismal (survival for a few months only).
  • Patients with metallic stent have relief from jaundice but unfortunately in a few weeks time, the stent gets blocked with tumour growth. Patients again present with high jaundice and have severely impaired quality of life. They complain of severe itching of entire body, loss of appetite and succumb due to impaired liver function from high jaundice/obstruction. The treatment is to have a longer ‘jaundice-free period’ which in turn improves quality of life and possibly survival function as well.  
  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy’s high dose radiation ‘sterilizes’ the metallic stent and bile duct region. It is assumed that with radiation therapy, blockage of bile duct and stent is delayed and patients have longer jaundice-free period.In Klatskin tumour, CyberKnife allows to deliver high dose of radiation in a short duration to the target without significant morbidity. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Whenever I study late night and go to bed, I hallucinate as if my whole body is paralysed. I can't move my hands or leg except restricted movement of head, I can't speak anything. Only thing I can do is wait for some time then it vanishes. This happens frequently when my brain is tired after study and then I went to sleep.

Ths is a phenomenon of twilight sleep when you see different type of feeling/or images. So try to sleep at proper time. These hallucinations are normal.
