Hi lybrate-user- it could be carpal tunnel syndrome- where a nerve is getting pinched in the wrist producing numbness/ tingling/ weakness in the hand (first three fingers are usually affected). An EMG/ NCS can diagnose appropriately.

Epilepsy is a serious but treatable condition provided you manage you physical and mental health in a preemptive manner. Having a healthy lifestyl goes far in terms of living a healthier and happier life but will have enormous postive impact on epilepsy management. Epilespy is know to worsen with stress. Therefore idetify those thing that overwhelm you and take measure to reduce it impact on you. Get away from stress inducing situation or people, if possible. Ensure you maitain work life balance, take necessary break during work hours and rest adequately over the weekends. Avoid unnecessary commute and keep your self well hydrated. Sleep routine must be followed like religious practice. Prioritse sleep over everything else and ensure you sleep for atleast 7-8 hours at night. Avoid unncessary coffee, tea and aerated drink and eat a healthy diet. Avoid alcohol. Consider light exercise five to six days per week for 30-45 mins on each of those days. Make sure that you hudrate addtiinally diring and after exercise session. For Prostate problem Insuggest you see and maintain folllow up with a good urologist. Equally, regular follow up with Neurologist for Epilepsy medication and dose optimisation is essential. Remeber, Illnesses are not under your control but lifestyle is matter of choice. Your choices define who you are and the kind of life you will live. Choose well and live well. Best wishes.

Can my lost smelling sense be cured?

In most cases a trial of steroids is appropriate (prednisolone by mouth) but beyond this there are a range of simple, medical and surgical treatment options depending on the cause and the perceived severity.

"some doctors" is a vague term to describe a medical opinion. If the doctor giving the diagnosis of brain tumor is a neurosurgeon, then you need to either believe him or take a second opinion, from another senior neurosurgeon.

Sleep Apnea - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Sleep Apnea - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Sleep apnea is a disorder that affects nighttime breathing and is caused by either a malfunction in the brain that temporarily stops sending signals to the muscles that control breathing, or by an obstruction in the airway

Causes of Sleep Apnea-
It occurs when muscles in the back of your throat relax, tonsillitis, adenoids, obesity, middle-aged, heart disease, stroke, sedative medicines, large neck circumference, large tongue etc.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea-

  1. Feeling of excessively sleepy during a day
  2. Lack concentration and low memory status
  3. Depression
  4. Short temperament
  5. Irritability
  6. Hyperactive children
  7. Leg swelling
  8. Impotency in males
  9. Insomnia
  10. Frequent waking up for urination in night
  11. Tiresome feeling in morning

Homeopathic  Treatment of Sleep Apnea-
Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering.

The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat sleep apnoea but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for sleep apnoea treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Some of the most common homeopathic medicines for Sleep Apnea are-

  1. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum album is often prescribed for individuals who have breathing difficulties at night and is considered for people with a fearful, tense and agitated response to illness. 
  2. Lachesis: Lachesis is a remedy prescribed for conditions that worsen at night. This medicine is designed for people who are typically fearful and anxious, but also prone to jealousy and excessive talking. 
  3. Sulphur: By reputation, sulphur is a commonly prescribed homeopathic remedy, especially for nighttime congestion and sweating. Homeopathic sulphur combats a wheezy cough and congested head, both of which are suffered in sleep apnea. 
  4. Spongia Tosta: This remedy for croup may help congestive sleep apnea sufferers as it treats respiratory symptoms that worsen when lying down. 

Before taking these medications, it is important to visit the doctor who will take a detailed case history of your problem and prescribe the right dosage and combination of medication.

Keep yourself calm and relaxed by doing breathing or relaxation exercise. Consult with a psychologist near by you. Make your self acceptable for everything happen in your life because the fear is start by nonacceptance. So try to be positive for everything. If you want any other help you can contact us.
