I have seen homoeopathy helping autistic children to such an extent that they could be promoted to normal school from special school . If he is doing well in music let him continue but also start homoeopathy which will definitely give a good quality of life.

It is a combination of escitalopram and clonazepam normally combinations are rarely given esp in western coutries to evaluate the adverse effect and action of each salt.

Can't say - but definitely it is related to his mental state. Have him occupied with whatever he loves to do . Ask him to ignore the jerk and accept it as any seasonal problem. If he can wear a knee cap for support , it may help him be distracted from his knee

What is the solution of migraine and is it a life taking disease.?

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
First of all avoid precipitating factors like tension, stress, direct sunlight exposure, smoking, excessive work load as literally any thing can precipitate migraine attack. Take tablet brufen twice a day with tablet rantac empty stomach for 3 days. Take tablet emset sos in case of associated vomiting. Get yourself screened up for cbc test. There are tablets like flunarizzine and propranolol that reduces the attacks but pls provide me details of duration and frequency of your migraine attack before starting these medicines. Symptoms can be reduced but I don't think it can be completely cured.

I am a heavy drinker. Now I want to get rid of this and want my health back. Symptoms are sweating more than normal, loss of appetite, dramatic weight loss, tingling and numbness in tips of fingers and toes, reddish palm and foots, some times shaky dont even drink water with one hand, felling cold in ac room. Please help.

Dear, alcohol dependence syndrome (addiction) is a serious condition which can cause harm to various organs of the body including brain and nervous system. The symptoms like tingling and numbness and shaky hands are due to peripheral neuropathy and weakness of the nervous system. Whereas loss of apetite and wt loss are due to liver and git dysfunction. Lot of time people believe addictions are just bad habits which can be left at anytime with some wiilpower. And only later they realise that its not as easy as it sounds plus it becomes alarmingly dangerous in later stages of addiction. Kindly consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible for complete evaluation and treatment. You may also have to consult a liver specialist if your suffering from jaundice or liver dysfunction.
