It all started in Mar?92 in Chittaranjan, India(It is a small railway town). I got high fever with chills in the evening and overnight my right leg got swollen. Then doctors at local railway hospital gave some antibiotics to subsidize the fever. Pus was formed after couple of days at the bottom of the ankle. They operated and removed all the pus and infected blood. Then they did dressing for two weeks and the leg become normal. They have advised me to take tablet Hetrazan(diethylcarbamazine) 100 mg thrice daily for two months. In Nov'93 I again got the same type of fever, the local doctor thought it as malaria and gave medicines for the same for one week. When the fever has not come down due to above medicines, after initial blood tests and other examinations he diagnosed it as Filariasis. He started the course for Filariasis like Banocide forte, Florocid injection(Sodium fluoride),weekly once, Hetrazan(diethylcarbamazine) 100 mg thrice daily etc.I used the medicines for one year. The swelling subsidized little bit. In Jun'95 I went to Bangalore and consulted doctors at St. Johns Medical College, they did various tests like growth hormone, Eye Perimetry, CT Scan etc(all normal) and diagnosed that there might be minute tumor in brain. Afterwards they ruled out that also. In Nov'95 some of my friends suggested to take homeopathy medicines as there are medicines for this type of diseases in Homeopathy. I took Medicines from renowned Homeopathy doctor. I took those medicines for 2 years. While using these medicines I got swelling on my hands also. In Nov'97 I consulted a renowned internal medicine physician he did all the tests and advised to consult Endocrinologist who is a professor in a teaching institute. In Mar'98 I got high fever with the swelling in Left leg. I was admitted at local railway hospital in Chittaranjan, India and they gave some antibiotics to reduce my fever. For swelling they said they cannot do anything. In Jun'98 I consulted a doctor, who was head of Department of Endocrinologist Osmania University, Hyderabad, India . He has ruled out clearly my disease relating to his department. He has advised to consult General Physician. Then I consulted the general physician, who was a teaching professor at Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, India. Through examining my case history and symptoms he diagnosed it as Filariasis I consulted various doctors at Apollo hospital (Hyderabad, India), there also they ruled out anything related to Endocrinology, There they did Lymphography test in which they diagnosed (pure drainage of lymphatic system) it as congenital lymphedema(Enclosed the report). Then in Jul'98 I went to Command Hospital (Armed Forces Medical College) Pune, India there also doctors done all the tests like MRI of brain and Growth hormone for Acromegaly or Gigantism but the test results were normal. One of our relative told to check in Unani (traditional medicine) that if there is any medicine as they are doing research in these kind of diseases; I went to Bhadrak, Orissa, India (Research Centre for Filariasis) and took Unani medicine for 6 years i.e till May'04. By using this medicine the frequent fever I used to get regularly has stopped and the swelling also subsided to some extent. In May'05 I again got the same type of fever with chills and I was admitted to command hospital Pune. My left leg got infected and the doctors operated and removed the entire puss and infected blood. Referred the case to plastic surgeon; the plastic surgeon ruled out plastic surgery as the swelling will again recur after two three years. He told to take Lymphapress therapy. He has told to do compress treatment (Putting the legs upwards with support of pillows while sleeping and crepe bandaging the legs in day time.). And also told to use Penicillin injection once in 21 days, so that it will minimize the chances of fever. After this I relocated to Hyderabad due to change in job. During these nine years I found that swelling is increasing gradually. In May'12 I went to Madurai, India and consulted a doctor of Gurumithren Hospital, he also done all type of investigations and advised me for surgery. He has advised for the bypass of the lymph nodes. Also the hospital was not that renowned and not well medically equipped. I felt the surgery little bit complicating. Also my family members were afraid that at present I able to walk and do my work and job, if suppose after such complicated surgery any secondary complication happens then I will be bedridden for life long. Even I took second opinion of the surgeons/Plastic Surgeons here in Hyderabad but they also ruled out any surgery for it. At present I am using compressive bandages and taking penicillin once in three weeks. Also I am using Ayurvedic (traditional Indian medicine) since last two years. As the swelling is increasing gradually I am finding difficulty in walking for long distance(around 1-2 miles) etc. so I consulted a Plastic Surgeon doctor at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, India for any recent medical advancements. He has examined my case and advised to use Lymphapress Pump and told to contact you. please do help as i have went to many institutes for the same. it would be helpful if i get any advice from here.

Hi. You have suffered a lot. But unfortunately you have either filariasis or congenital lumphedema with intermittant infection. The result of lymphovascular anastomosis or nodo venous shunt depends on the lymphangiography findings. If there are channels which are open, the results can be dramatic. We need to analyse your lymphoscintography befor e commenting on the surgery. Till then continue with lympha press and massage and limb elevation,

Numbness in leg is due to pressure on the nerve. This could be due tonerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos you will need other supportive medicines also. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Migraine - 7 Ways You Can Deal With at Workplace

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
Migraine - 7 Ways You Can Deal With at Workplace

A migraine is one of the worst form of headache. It is reported that over 90 percent of people who suffers from a migraine are unable to work. The intense pain totally makes them vulnerable. A mammoth 113 million workdays are wasted globally due to this problem. This being said, if the pain is slowly starting to set in, it is possible to manage it at the workspace.

Here is a convenient guide to do just that:

1. Pain Medication: If you are a migraine patient, it is likely that you have your migraine medication with you. The first step is to try the medication. If on the other hand, the medication is not available basic painkillers can be given a shot to manage the pain. Basic pain medications, such as ibuprofen are easily available over the counter and are capable of providing temporary relief.

2. Educate co-workers: Despite awareness about migraine pain, many organisations continue to turn a deaf ear about the problem. Instead of fighting with the whole organisations, it makes sense to educate your immediate colleague about a migraine. All you require is 1-2 people who have your back.

3. Control the environment: With the onset of the pain, it becomes more and more difficult to resume work. Few environmental changes such as adjusting the monitor to the eye level, using a sachet of odour neutralizer and switching off the nearest light will help you to manage the pain for few hours.

4. Staying hydrated: Migraine tends to increase multifold if the body is not hydrated. It is, therefore, essential to drink as much water as you can. Apart from water few other drinks such as lime juice and green tea can be of great assistance to hold the pain back for quite some time.

5. Small snacks: Although eating during a migraine can be tough because of the buzzing pain it is a good idea to have small snacks throughout the working hours. An empty stomach creates acidity and further aggravates the pain. Small time snacks such cookies and chocolate bar can come really handy at this time.

6. Get enough air: A centralized workplace can be claustrophobic and intensify the pain for many. Get out of the workspace to get some fresh air. A sudden gush of oxygen can be a welcome relief from the monotonous and crowded office floor.

7. Apply water on the skull: While this might sound like a crazy idea, applying a small amount of water in the middle of the skull can give temporary relief from the throbbing effect of a migraine. If ice is available in the office pantry, make no hesitation in applying it on the migraine side of the forehead. Ice is capable of spreading a cooling effect throughout the forehead and the skull. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi.

If you can write in detail about your mother's symptoms, duration, associated symptoms, what medicines does she take now and in past? what investigations have been done for this problem and what is the treatment she has received thus far, then I can evaluate and we can try and reach to a diagnosis. Accordingly treatment can be started. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am a male of 26 years, 2 years ago I have had a major accident that resulted in multiple facial fractures, dislocation of the mandibular condyle and severe facial deformity. 1st surgery was a failure and I couldn't even eat for some months ,so we opted for the 2nd one and it is a partial success because it only corrected my dental fractures so that I could eat well but my major concern is my facial profile. I'm very much depressed regarding it, Is there any chance that my mandibular condyle can be corrected and relocated so that my facial profile is restored to the previous state.

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user Whether, and to what extent your facial profile can be corrected/ improved depends upon the nature and extent of your injuries, and the nature of your deformity. A thorough clinical and radiographic evaluation is a necessary prerequisite for such an assessment. You need to visit an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with all your previous records, including the initial radiographs, the most recent radiographs and records of your previous surgeries so a thorough evaluation may be done. Additional radiographs and other investigations may then be ordered as needed. Hope this helps.

You might have low blood pressure or you may have a ear vestibular dysfunction. You need to get a ENT consultation also. You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems. Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure. Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including:     * Alcohol     * Anti-anxiety medicines     * Certain antidepressants     * Diuretics     * Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease     * Medicines used for surgery     * Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include:     * Nerve damage from diabetes     * Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias)     * Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration)     * Heart failure You can do a few things to prevent low blood pressure     * Drinking more fluids     * Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down     * Not drinking alcohol     * Not standing for a long time     * Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs Get these test done to find cause of blood pressure problems tests include Thyroid functions, ECG, ECHO.

Absolutely you can continue taking those pills as long as you need them. In the meantime meet with a counselor and sort out the depression that is haunting you. You can follow these instructions for your sleep problem: Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

My hand shaking every time due hesitation, anxiety and depression. How can stops fastly?
Shaking occurs as a result of adrenaline. That makes it hard to stop shaking once you've already started. You can't stop adrenaline. You simply need to wait for it to get used up and control your anxiety in the process. There are a few simple things you can try: •Jog Running may use up adrenaline faster, and help you stop shaking. •Deep Breaths Breathing slow can be helpful for shaking as well. •Yell While you can't do it in public, some people find yelling loudly to be somewhat therapeutic. Some people have trained themselves to shake less. Drinking water and eating healthier may help too. Some people shake worse when their body needs more nutrients or hydration. But in general, the only way to stop shaking is to stop the anxiety that causes it.

Hye, thanks for the query. Basically you are very underweight. Being underweight is a sign of poor nutrition and deficiency leading to low immunity, lack of stamina, reduced energy levels. At times we do not eat the right foods at the right time when needed by the body. Just eating two big meals may not really suffice your needs. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

I am suffering from migraine problem from last 3 days. Please provide me the right.

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Hi lybrate-user, These four natural cures can help prevent, as well as reduce, the severity and the frequency of migraine attacks. 1. Exercise For a long time, doctors have been recommending exercise to migraine sufferers, and new evidence supports the idea that physical activity does help in preventing migraines. Gentle, regular exercise aids your body ward off stress and reduces tension, two things that are famous for triggering migraines. Exercising is also a good way of triggering the body to release endorphins, which are a mild, natural sedative. As a start, 75 minutes of vigorous or 150 minutes of mild aerobic activity, spread out over the course of a week 2. Magnesium: The human body does not make its own magnesium, meaning that you have to rely on dietary and supplement sources to get it. Magnesium supplements help your muscles and nerves throughout your body and brain relax; it also helps in preventing nerves from getting overexcited. Overall, the mineral is helpful in the reduction and prevention of migraines. If you would rather skip supplements, the best food sources of magnesium are black beans, quinoa, and flaxseeds 3. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) - Also known as Riboflavin, Vitamin B2 is found in certain supplements and foods. It helps protect body cells from incurring oxidative damage as well as increasing energy production. It is widely reported that Riboflavin significantly reduces migraine headaches when consumed at high levels of about 400 mg a day, but it does not seem to have any effect on reducing the length or intensity of a migraine once it occurs. The best food sources of Riboflavin include whole grains, yogurt, almonds, eggs, spinach, and broccoli. It is recommended that you store these food sources away from sunlight; otherwise, the rays will destroy the chemical. 4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids - Anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids are abundant in a variety of food sources, especially seeds, nuts, and fish. These substances protect your brain cells and reduce inflammation, therefore reducing the pain associated with migraines. Besides, Omega-3 seem to be beneficial in reducing the duration and frequency of migraine headache attacks. The best food sources of these fats include flaxseeds, chia seeds, Pacific oysters, rainbow trout and Alaskan salmon. However, Omega-3 fats are fragile and easily damaged when exposed to oxygen, light, and heat, so store the food sources in proper containers and avoid overheating during food preparation. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Have a migraine problem and when we had MRI scanning all was normal. Suggestions?

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
MRI reports are normal that seems nothing serious. Headaches due to migraine is very common these days especially in young adults because of there lifestyle and working environment. Sometimes pain is very severe on one side of the head.  So I would recommend you to avoid stress and anxiety, quiet the mind from distractions. Stay calm positive and do deep breathing exercises, listen some music that would give you some relaxation. If pain is severe then place ice pack over forehead and lie down for some time to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full life. Massage your head using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body. You can use mint or clove spray for inhaling in case of headache. If pain is severe you can also apply ginger paste over the painful area. Avoid taking caffeine, alcohol, phenylethylamine (found in chocolate and cheese), tyramine (found in nuts and fermented meats, cheeses, and soy), and aspartame (in many artificially sweetened foods) as sometimes these all exaggerate pain instead use basil leaves tea or ginger tea boiled nicely in water without milk. Regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. Avoid fasting - Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings. Make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. Take min 7 hours of sleep. Make a habit of 20-25 min walking daily along with some meditations. If required then only take pain relieving tablets. For more help or instructions please consult. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.
