I am 79, male, suffering from" small fibre peripheral neuropathy" for last about ten years. I am only mildly diabetic (well in control) for three years only. It has been gradually becoming difficult for me to walk. Recently there has been sudden increase in this deterioration. The neurologist I can get to is too expensive for me. I have been on gabapentin, but my diabetologist changed it to pregeb. Your advice and prescription?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
If diabetes is in control normally other complications are either delayed or of less severity. Since your problem is long standing one, it may not completely go away. Pregabalin is a good drug to help in this condition. But it equally essential to maintain a strict sugar control to get better relief.

Migraine and weakness.

Hello, premature ejaculation needs a detailed evaluation. We need to understand how this started and has this been specifically associated with a particular partner or in all situations. Also of this happens with a particular setting etc. You will definitely benefit from medications, therapy and also a detailed evaluation. It is also important to understand if your partner has any specific problems too. Therapies such as sensate focus techniques, relaxation strategies and stop sqeeze techniques are known to help all the best!

Doctor my sister whose age is 28 years is suffering from epilepsy. I need some advice how to cure this disease. What are the medicines or what are the step we should take first for this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Epilepsy may occur as a result of a genetic disorder or an acquired brain injury, such as a trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behaviour, symptoms and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures. Epilepsy is usually treated by medication and in some cases by surgery, devices or dietary changes. after taking an EEG and full check up

Hi Am sorry for your family. Parkinson's is a long term condition .the cloud in the silver lining is medications r effective. BEING PATIENT is the best thing you can do as many a times it takes a while to figure out the right meds/doses/combination. See to it that he is productively engaged as depression hits many with Parkinson's. Hope this helps Rgds.

You should try yoga. And have a walk after dinner. Take milk at night. And go sleep after that. Don't engage your self in any work becoz your not getting d sleep. Just switch off d lites and listen slow music of memory. It will definitely help u. Even will take some time but you will succeed. All d best.

My brother aged 63 year old felt CVA haemorrage at basal ganglia size about 4.2 * 2.3 two month back on 9th august 2015. Now he is conscious/alert but left side paralysis is same. What is the prognosis what is the best treatment now.

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Hyderabad
Your brother's hemorrhagic cva most likely resulted from uncontrolled bp. Most important treatment is to control bp strictly now and in future. Regarding his left side weakness, improvement can be only achieved by aggressive physiotherapy.

I am 64 yrs having sugar, bp and cholesterol, taking medications. Please of late having problem while walking causing imbalance. Please ct scan of brain done - no probs - report says - please age related cerebral and celebellar atrophy. Done some physio, but no improvement, your valued opinion solicited.

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Dear , if you' re having imbalance problems then you should do specific balance exercises. Start with simple exercises like in sitting: touch your nose with your finger tip, touch a point in front of you (this can be done by placing a sticker on a wall) making sure you touch the center of the point, walking in a straight line, walking around obstacles. Initially these exercises may prove to be challenging but as you go along it gets easier. Start with one exercise at a time and everyday do the next exercise along with the previous day' s exercise. It takes 3 months for the improvement to be of significant level. If you require anymore clarifications please feel free to contact me. Preethi mathew (mpt, maiap) neuro-physiotherapist
