This is phimosis where you have difficulty in pulling back the foreskin. It may have to be removed surgically. Meet a urologist.

Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is when you have uncontrolled shaking movements in parts of your body - most commonly the arms and hands. It is more common with increasing age. It tends to occur in families. It is mild in some people but can become severe and disruptive to daily activities in others. There is good treatment available in the form of medication and occasionally surgery.

What is tremor?
A tremor is a repetitive movement of a part of the body. It is involuntary. This means that it is generally not controllable and happens without you deciding to move that body part. It is often felt as a trembling or shaking sensation.

A slight tremor is present in all people. That is called physiological tremor. It may not be noticeable. Certain things will make a physiological tremor more noticeable such as caffeine (in coffee, tea and cola), anxiety or tiredness.

What is essential tremor?
Essential tremor is also called familial essential tremor. It is different from physiological tremor described above. It usually starts in the hands and arms. It can sometimes become quite severe so that everyday activities like holding a cup can be difficult. The tremor is usually not there at rest but becomes noticeable when the affected body part is held in a position, or with movement.

The term 'essential' means that there is no associated disease that causes the tremor.

What causes essential tremor?
Essential tremor is known to be familial condition, meaning that it runs in families. At least 5-7 out of 10 people with essential tremor have other members of the family with the same condition. Genes are passed on to a child from each parent and determine what we look like, how our body functions and even what diseases we get. Particular genes have been shown to have certain changes present in families with essential tremor.

It is not clearly understood how this genetic change leads to essential tremor. However, it is likely that it somehow affects some parts of the brain that are responsible for controlling movement.

Who has essential tremor?
Studies have shown different rates of essential tremor. Some have shown it to be present in 3 in 1,000 people, whereas other studies have shown it may affect as many as 5 in 100 people. It is equally common in men and women and is more common with increasing age. Most people who develop essential tremor are aged over 35, but it can occur in younger people.

What are the symptoms?
The only symptom in essential tremor is tremor. If you have other symptoms, then you may have a different condition. (For example, tremor can be a symptom of various conditions such as Parkinson's disease. In these other conditions, tremor is just one of several other symptoms.)

In essential tremor, the tremor usually begins in one arm or hand. Within 1-2 years, the other arm is likely to be affected. Very occasionally, it may also spread to involve the legs. Three in ten people with essential tremor have a tremor of the head. The voice, jaw or face may also be involved.

At first, the tremor may not be present all the time. Eventually it will be present all the time when the affected body part is held in a position or with certain movements. It may be worse with stress, tiredness, hunger or certain emotions such as anger. Extremes in temperature may also make the tremor more severe.

You may be able to control the tremor to an extent. It may be less noticeable when you are working with the affected body part. For example, when you use your hand the tremor may ease off. It is not present when you are resting or sleeping.

Up to 7 in 10 people with essential tremor find that the tremor reduces after drinking some alcohol.

How is essential tremor diagnosed?
There is no test to diagnose essential tremor. Your doctor can usually diagnose essential tremor based on your explanation of the tremor and an examination. It is important for the doctor to make sure that there are no other conditions present that are causing tremor. In some cases, this may mean that you need to have some tests to rule out other conditions. For example, blood tests or a brain scan. You may also be referred to a neurologist (a doctor with a special interest and expertise in the brain and nerves).

Other conditions that can cause tremor and need to be ruled out include: a side-effect from some prescribed medicines, anxiety, caffeine, some poisons, kidney and liver disease, thyroid disease, Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

What is the treatment for essential tremor?
Essential tremor cannot be cured. Treatment reduces the severity of the tremor, sometimes greatly. There are various treatments that are used.

No treatment is an option
If your tremor is mild, you may not need any treatment.

Medication
There are two medicines used initially for essential tremor - propranolol and primidone. These medicines have been shown to ease the tremor in up to 8 in 10 affected people.

Propranolol - this is a medicine that is usually used in heart disease. It is in a class of medicines called beta-blockers. It has also been shown to be effective in essential tremor. This medicine should be used with care if you have a heart conduction problem or a lung disease such as asthma. The most common side-effects with propranolol are dizziness, tiredness and nausea (feeling sick).

Primidone - this is a medicine that is primarily used for epilepsy, but it also works very well in essential tremor. The most common side-effects are sleepiness, dizziness and nausea. These may improve if you continue to take this medicine.

When the diagnosis of essential tremor is made, you may be offered one of these medicines. A low dose is usually started at first, and gradually increased until your tremor is eased. If you reach the maximum dose without a satisfactory improvement, then the other medicine can be tried. If that also doesn't work, you can try them together. Other medicines can be tried if these two are not effective. A wide range of medicines have been shown to have some effect on reducing the severity of the tremor.

Surgery
If medicine treatment is not effective, and the tremor is severe, then a surgical procedure may be an option. There are two main surgical procedures that may be considered - thalamotomy and thalamic deep brain stimulation. They both involve the thalamus. This is a deep part of the brain that organises messages travelling between the body and brain.

Thalamotomy - in this procedure, the thalamus on one side of the brain is destroyed. It has been shown to be very effective. It stops or greatly reduces the tremor in up to 9 out of 10 people with essential tremor. There are risks involved such as a bleed into the brain. Potential side-effects include muscle weakness, speech problems and memory loss. If the thalamus on both sides of the brain is destroyed, there is a higher chance of side-effects. This is not usually recommended.

Thalamic deep brain stimulation - this procedure involves placing an electrode (fine wire) into the thalamus on one or both sides of the brain. The electrode is connected to a device called a stimulator. The electrode and stimulator stay in the body. (The stimulator is placed under the skin at the top of the chest.) The simulator sends electrical impulses down the electrode to the thalamus. It is not known exactly why this device works. It seems to interrupt or block the nerve signals coming through the thalamus that cause the tremor. If you have this procedure, you will need to have regular reviews to make sure that the stimulator setting is correct. This aims to minimise side-effects and maximise benefit. It may produce a good response in up to 9 out of 10 affected people. Again, there is a small risk that the procedure may cause a bleed into the brain. Side-effects include loss of sensation, speech problems and weakness. These usually resolve when the stimulator settings are adjusted.

Botulinum toxin injections (Botox®)
There is some evidence that Botox® injections are helpful in reducing certain tremors. Unfortunately, a Botox® injection into the arm also produces weakness of the arm. This is usually not tolerated. It is mainly useful when essential tremor affects the head and neck.

Alcohol
Many people find that alcohol is helpful in reducing their tremor. It needs to be used with caution to avoid developing an alcohol problem. It is not advisable to drink more than the normal recommended amount of alcohol. That is: men should drink no more than 21 units of alcohol per week, no more than four units in any one day, and have at least two alcohol-free days a week. Women should drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week, no more than three units in any one day, and have at least two alcohol-free days a week. Pregnant women, and women trying to become pregnant, should not drink alcohol at all. One unit is in about half a pint of normal strength beer, or two thirds of a small glass of wine, or one small pub measure of spirits.

Intermittent treatment
Some people with essential tremor only wish to have treatment for specific times. For example, prior to going to a social engagement or before a particularly important meeting. In these situations a single dose of propranolol or an alcoholic drink may ease the tremor satisfactorily for the occasion.

What is the outlook?
Essential tremor is called a progressive disease. This means that it tends to gets worse over time. It does not shorten expected lifespan and does not lead on to any more serious brain disorders. Some people have a mild tremor which does not affect daily life very much. If your tremor is more severe, it may significantly disrupt your ability to carry out normal activities such as drinking from a cup.

However, treatments work well to ease the severity of the tremor in most people with essential tremor.

Go for serum ige level along with absolute eosinophil count. As per your history its seems to be totally hypersensitivity, and atopic. In the mean while you can start seroflo 250 inhalation for your respiratory distress and levocitrizine 5 mg whenever there is skin itching.

Please get an X-ray done. Blue spot means blood clot below the skin. May be there's a minor bony injury which isn't detected. Otherwise it should go away in 10 days to 2 weeks time.

Hello, get your eyes tested from an opthalmologist. Include the following for getting better vision: vitamins a, c, e, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Dha is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for strengthening eye muscles: -begin by partially closing your eyes; the lids should only be halfway shut. After holding for 10-15 seconds, close your eyes very slowly. Take a few deep breaths to increase oxygen in the blood. -warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. -hold a pen at arm's length. Focus your gaze on the tip of the pen. Bring the pen closer to your nose at a slow and steady pace. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times. -concentrate your vision on the tip of your nose. Then shift your gaze to an object further away, either at arm's length or 20 feet away. Then shift your eyes back to the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 10 times. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Begin by look to the left-most position (without moving your head) and hold to stretch your eye muscles. Hold for 5 counts. Blink and return your gaze back to look straight in front of you. Then look to the right-most position with your gaze and hold for 5 counts. Repeat 3 times, blinking between each hold. Then, repeat this exercise looking up and then down. Do not forget about blinking. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Look up and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look up to and to your left for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your left for 5 seconds. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing first and then reducing the power of your eyes (if the eye power is less). Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month and instill euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

I am 21 years old. Since last 10 years suffering from psoriasis. How can I cure it completely.

I am 21 years old. Since last 10 years  suffering from psoriasis. How can I cure it completely.
Psoriasis is manageable, the traditional approach is to start with the mildest treatments topical creams and ultraviolet light therapy (phototherapy) and then progress to stronger ones only if necessary. The goal is to find the most effective way to slow cell turnover with the fewest possible side effects coupled with a dietary therapy specially designed to manage psoriasis. Researchers found several studies linking obesity to an increased risk for psoriatic disease. These studies indicate that a higher body mass index (bmi) is associated with an elevated risk for developing psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, as well as increased disease severity. Obesity may provide the nudge that triggers psoriasis in people who are already predisposed to it, researchers also found that in overweight individuals, losing weight may improve the effectiveness of treatments. So if you lose weight, you may be reducing fuel for the fire. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Hi, your body weight is carried by knees and ankle and feet. The more weight you carry the more pressure it puts on these 3 areas. For weight loss you definitely need to streamline your lifestyle by any modification that it may require like altering eating pattern, exercise and stress relief. The real need for weight loss is purely motivation from your end. Incase you are interested in getting professional help on your diet pls feel free to consult me privately online.
