Neurologist,
My hands are vibrating little bit
When I have to carry any thing Carefully
For ex. When I serve tea or coffee.
Hi, Seems like your complaining about having tremors in your hands- which are postural-- that is, they happen when your carrying/ holding something (when your hands are to be held against gravity). Such type of tremors can be a normal occurring or physiological in nature- brought about by fatigue, nervousness, anxiety or any strong emotion. Even excess caffeine consumption can cause it. Sometimes such tremors could indicate underlying thyroid function abnormality. If your 19 years old and otherwise healthy-- can just observe for now. Best,

Hi Mere bhai ka 12 date ko shaam ko accident ho gya tha so head injury ho gya hai to wo abhi bol nhi paa raha hai to sir wah kitne din baad bol payega.

It will depend on how serious the injury is....usually it takes time to overcome from trauma from 1-7 days in which the patient can express him self. If the trauma/injury is in the speaking center it could get loss and he will not be able to speak... Speak to your Doctor do a MRI brain first before getting into conclusion.

It very common problem with new born mothers. Do not try to sleep. Let sleep come to you. So if sleep is not coming then keep urself busy with reading books or watchingtv or what ever you like. Body will sleep when it wants then. There are medicines also and also there you may suffering from common post partum depression which doctor can come to conclusion after more communication.

My father has been suffering from Parkinson's disease since 2007. Now it has reached a maximum severe condition. He has been taking levodopa supplement (Syndopa (levodopa carbidopa: 250 25) which has been wearing off and causing side effects like Involuntary movement, occasional dementia and he is becoming weaker day by day. We have consulted numbers of doctor including Neurologist, Medicine specialist and we could not find a better alternative of the drugs. We used Tridopa 100 (another levodopa supplement) but the dosage is not working for my father. What I an interested to know if there is any better treatment of this disease? His health is deteriorating day by day. Please let me know.

There are various kinds of drugs for Parkinsonism. Basically if one group of medicine don't work we try different. I am sure your doctor must have tried all options. Your father also needs anti dementia medicine. It should be started at the earliest as it can only prevent deterioration and cannot reverse the dementia. Keep your father in a room where he gets multiple stimulations from environment like light, air, sound and keeps in constant touch with what is happening around . This will reduce confusion of dementia

Causes and Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

IFAANS, DNB (Neurosurgery), MBBS

Causes and Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative condition that affects your brain cells which produce dopamine and thus hampering all kinds of motor functioning and other emotional responses. After the disease is diagnosed, medication and therapy can help to provide relief from the symptoms to a large extent but a permanent cure is not possible.

Causes:

The disorder does not have a definite set of causes. A small percentage of the cases have been related to hereditary factors and others have a range of environmental causes associated with them.

1. Genetic factors:

Specific gene mutations and gene variations have been proved to cause Parkinson's, such as SNCA, PARK2, PARK7, PINK1 and LRRK2. These make or recycle proteins which are linked to the disease.

Research shows that men are at a 1.75 times greater risk of developing the condition than women are. Also, age plays a role with most cases occurring after the age of 60.

2. Environmental factors:

Regular exposure to inorganic insecticides, pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals or other toxins may cause the disorder. In rare cases, Parkinson's disease occurs in the aftermath of a severe head injury or immune disorders.

Symptoms:

The symptoms can be classified into two broad categories-

1. Motor symptoms:

  • The hand tremors when in resting position
  • The grip loosens
  • Walking slows down
  • Facial muscles freeze partially
  • Speech is slurred
  • Balance is disturbed
  • Swallowing is painful
  • Urination is abnormally frequent
  • Dementia-like symptoms are seen
  • There is involuntary twitching of the fingers and toes
  • Repetition of the same movement in quick succession is nearly impossible

2. Non-motor symptoms:

  • Dental problems
  • Vision impairment
  • Skin disorders
  • Panic attacks
  • Excessive secretion of saliva
  • Extreme weight loss or gain
  • Sexual problems
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Lowering of the pitch of the voice
  • Fatigue
