Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly.

I am suffering from epilepsy and get attacks minimum twice a month. I am not getting a good result from the medicine prescribed to me currently. What can I do to get cured?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Hyderabad
Most probably you are suffering from a refractory type of epilepsy or your compliance to medicine is not good (i mean missing the doses of epilepsy medicine in between) or the medicine you are taking is not appropriate for your epilepsy type or not in proper doses, consult a epileptologist or atleast a neurologist in person.

Please help me sir please I still wait for your response.

Paralysis occurs due to stroke in brain. Stroke means sudden loss of blood supply to a part of brain, which can occur due to clotting of blood inside blood vessel or due to leakage of blood from blood vessel. As a result that part of brain dies. With passage of time gradually neurons (nerve cells) from other areas of brain start taking the responsibility to work for dead part. But it is a very slow process that may take many years or decades. Recovery occurs by its own and there is no operation/magical medicines/therapy to cure him immediately you have to keep patience. Just continue his antihypertensive/antithrombotic medicines and physiotherapy. I wish your father all the best.

I would recommend you not to put pressure while urinating. Let the urine come out naturally. If some little amount of urine remains back in the bladder it is not an issue. Don't bother. The bladder has the capacity to store a lot of urine otherwise. If you strain while urinating you may cause other problems. If you are facing burning sensations or increased frequency. Please consult a urologist. Hope this answer has helped you in some way. Do let me know if you have any other queries.

What is the brain hemorrhage?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
'hemorrhage' is the scientific term for bleeding; brain hemorrhage is bleeding into the brain. There are 3 kinds: bleeding into the brain itself, or bleeding into two spaces around the brain - the sub-arachnoid space or the sub-dural space. The last one, sub-dural hemorrhage occurs most often following an injury, very occasionally after a long gap and can be very confusing. For example, trivial injury to a very elderly person can lead to bleeding into the sub-dural space months later, lead him into coma gradually and be only diagnosed only on a ct scan. Sub-arachnoid hemorrhage is usually catastrophic, starting with a headache like a bolt from the blue and striking the person down and many times leads to death. There are many treatments to be done, but it is a very complex and difficult disorder. Bleeding into the brain can be'minor' but in 25 % of the cases it is instantly fatal; another 25 % die within 30 days; and another 25% die within 1 year. That means 75% patients with brain hemorrhage die within 1 year - that's how serious it is! the most common causes of brain hemorrhage are age and high blood pressure.

1. It could be due to essential tremor. The cause of the tremor is unknown. In some cases it is hereditary and runs in families. There is no definite treatment unless it is severe 2 other causes of tremor could be stress, anxiety, panic, nervousness, inadequate sleep, physical exhaustion, strong emotion, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, smoking/tobacco/alcohol abuse/withdrawl, excess tea/coffee, drugs like steroid/amphetamine, neurological disorder, cerebellar dis order, 3.
