I have cough for a couple of days, what should I do? Which is an effective cough syrup? Please suggest.
I have heart rate 114 and I think for this rate my bp is lower, my age is 24 and height is 165cm and weight is 64kg. So what should I do to make it normal?
@stick to a regular sleep schedule. Support your biological clock by going to bed and getting up at the same time every day, including weekends.
@ avoid naps. Napping during the day can make it more difficult to sleep at night. If you feel like you have to take a nap, limit it to 30 minutes before 3 p. M.
@ limit caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least eight hours before bed. While alcohol can make you feel sleepy, it interferes with the quality of your sleep, and nicotine is a stimulant.
@ avoid late meals. Try to avoid heavy, rich foods within two hours of bed. Fatty foods can take a lot of work for your stomach to digest and spicy or acidic foods can cause heartburn.
@ get regular exercise. Regular exercise can improve the symptoms of insomnia, but it's not a quick fix. It takes several months to feel the full effects. Aim for 30 minutes or more of activity on most days but not too close to bedtime.
@ develop a better bedtime routine
@ it's not just what you do during the day that affects the quality of your sleep, but also those things you do to prepare your mind and body for sleep.
@make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, and cool. Noise, light, and heat can interfere with sleep. Try using a sound machine or earplugs to hide outside noise, an open window or fan to keep the room cool, and blackout curtains or a sleep mask to block out light.
@avoid stimulating activity and stressful situations before bedtime. This includes vigorous exercise, big discussions or arguments, or catching up on work. Instead, focus on quiet, soothing activities, such as reading, knitting, or listening to soft music, while keeping lights low.
@ turn off screens one hour before bedtime. The light emitted from tv, tablets, smartphones, and computers suppresses your body's production of melatonin and can severely disrupt your sleep. Instead of emailing, texting, watching tv, or playing video games, try listening to a book on tape, a podcast, or reading by a soft light.
If by following these measures, still if there is difficulty to get a sound sleep, homeopathic medicines can be taken for some time to relax the body and assist in getting sleep. These medicines do not have any side effects and are not habit forming. There are various medicines to help insomnia, viz. Passiflora, kali phos, piscidia, nux, coffea, etc, but there prescription depends on individual case.
My sister gets severe headache every other day. It happens for no apparent reason and lasts for hours. She experiences intense pain in the back of her head, sides of skull, neck, shoulder blades and upper back. Her forehead hurts too but not as much. She also feels very nauseous during these headaches. The only thing that helps is painkillers (½ combiflam tablet) and a few times paracetamol (crocin) and nothing else. Can you tell us why these headaches happens so frequently and how we can avoid it? And if not that, then how can we remedy it without medicines, that is, naturally or through ayurvedic medicines? Thank you.

My boyfriend has a very minor and early stage of epilepsy. He last had a seizure 4 years ago. And yesterday he had a seizure again. The night before the seizure he didn't sleep at all. And he took 120ml whiskey and approx 3ltr beer. He is not an addict, just a once in a blue moon drinker. He also didn't take his daily medicine of epilepsy. What do you think is the reason of this seizure? Should alcohol or flavoured hookah be avoided by epilepsy patients?
Here's how to read and understand your semen analysis, plus a description of what a normal sperm looks like. Sluggish sperm, diminished sperm motility, and normal forward sperm progression are some of the terms you'll see on your semen analysis results.
The semen analysis measures a number of parameters that affect the chances of the sperm reaching the egg. Some of the parameters are indicators of sperm production and health and others relate the the quality of the semen and its ability to help sperm along the journey to the egg.
Since male infertility accounts for about 33% of not getting pregnant for couples, it's important to get a semen analysis done if you can't get pregnant. A man's sperm count, motility, or production is very important to pregnancy. Here's a description of the three parts of a sperm, plus information on what sperm test results mean?
What is a Sperm Made of?
Though sperm is teeny tiny, laboratory technicians can see their details under a microscope (which is what will happen during a semen analysis or sperm test).
The head of a sperm contains all the genetic material, so a sperm with an abnormal head can't fertilize an egg.
The midpiece of a sperm contains fructose, which is the energy it needs to move rapidly.
The tail of a sperm is necessary for propulsion. Sperm with no tail, two tails, or coiled tails are abnormal, and won't help with getting pregnant.
What Does Your Semen Analysis Mean?
Okay, you've received the results of your sperm test and you have no idea what sperm volume, concentration, motility, or morphology really means! Have no fear: the following parameters are from the World Health Organization (WHO) a reliable source of medical information.
Normal sperm volume (amount) is 1.5 to 5 ml, or about a teaspoon.
Normal sperm concentration should be greater than 20 million sperm/ml, or a total of greater than 40 million per ejaculate.
Normal sperm motility means that more than 40% of the sperm should be moving (swim forward, mates!).
Normal sperm morphology means that more than about 30% of sperm should be normally shaped, as determined by the lab technician. If the lab uses the more strict Kruger criteria, normal sperm morphology should be 14%.
Normal sperm forward progression is at least 2, on a scale of 1 to 4 (this part of the sperm test measures how many sperm are moving forward).
Sperm white blood cells should be no more than 0 to 5 per high-power field. More could indicate infection.
Sperm hyperviscosity means that the semen should gel promptly, but should liquefy within 30 minutes after the sample is taken.
Sperm Ph should be alkaline, to protect sperm from the acidic environment of the woman's va-jay-jay.
# Below are the most common diagnosis's made from the semen analysis.
Asthenospermia - swimmers don't swim: Asthenospermia occurs when the testicle is making sperm but they are not swimming. Major causes of reduced motility include:varicocele , poor diet, heat exposure , obesity and toxin exposure.
Azoospermia - Zero sperm: Azoospermia is broken down into two camps. Obstructive, which means that there is something blocking the path and trapping sperm inside the testicle. An non-obstructive, which means that the body isn't producing sperm to begin with. The treatment options, as you can imagine are quite different. To figure out what's going on, a male fertility specialist may perform a physical exam, ultrasounds, blood work and perhaps a few other test to perform the exact cause. Often, due to remarkable advances in technology and medical science, there are options to enable azoospermic men to successfully father children.
Oligospermia - Low Sperm Count: Oligospermia means that there is a low sperm concentration in the ejaculate. Generally, this means that something is impairing the testicle's ability to produce sperm. Learn more about low sperm count.
Hypospermia (semen volume under 2mL) and Aspermia (no semen): Usually indicate some sort of plumbing problem; a complete or partial blockage or a condition called retrograde ejeculation. Depending on the underlying cause there are prescription medications or surgical procedures that can help treat the issue. For more severe cases where treatment is unavailable or ineffective, a specialist can retrieve sperm from the testicle for artificial insemination or IVF.
Teratospermia - Abnormal morphology:Abnormal morphology means that something is interfering the the sperm maturation process that causes a high number of them to develop abnormally. Abnormal sperm can have heads that are too big or too small, two heads or two tails or they can be missing key proteins that enable them to accomplish their mission.
Your sperm will vary
And, if you've done a sperm test (or are preparing to do a sperm test), remember that semen samples can vary from month to month or even day to day. It takes 72 days for sperm to develop.
How does this affect the semen analysis or sperm test results? If you were ill, taking medication, or had anything unusual going on three months before the sperm test, then the results may not be indicative of normal sperm count, motility, or production.
