I have fever from some time & have pain in whole body or headache. And also pain in eyes.

I have fever from some time & have pain in whole body or headache.
And also pain in eyes.
Pain in the eyes and headache may have multiple causes associated with it. There are a few points you need to look at before jumping to any conclusions. Have you undergone an eye check up previously? Is there any history of raised pressure in your eyes? Do you have anybody in your family having raised eye pressure? Do you suffer from recurrent cold, fever, cough, etc? Do you have a lot of work/ study related stress? Do you use glasses? The reason for asking all these questions is that headache and eye pain may occur due to various reasons ranging from change in glasses, sinusitis, migraine, glaucoma, tension, blood pressure and so on. The list is long. it would be a good idea to have a look at your eyes. This would help in coming to a decision whether your eye pain and headache is due to an eye problem. If you could use the video facility provided by lybrate and get in touch, I could probably guide you more accurately as to provide relief to your symptoms. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care. regards. Dr. Chaitanya.

Hello Krishna, Sorry to hear that you are suffering from panic and anxiety. Are you on any medications. You should perhaps seek Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to reduce your anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will provide you with strategy and technique to deal with anxious thoughts and behavior. You need to also become self-aware so that you realize what thoughts you are feeding in. You can seek help online or offline from an experienced therapist in the field. Regards Stuti

Hello doctor. I'm 28years old woman. Well I got arranged marriage in 2011. It was ended up in divorce in 2012 due to parental interruption on both sides. Till now really don't have a clear clue why my life ended with divorce. Fine. It's all over now. I got second marriage in 2013 december. It was arranged marriage. Now the problem is there are so many misunderstandings between me and my husband. In one word I can he is not a understandable person. He always shouts at me even if I don't make mistakes. Ex: one day he asked me to go to my mom's home since he went out for office work. After he came back, he started shouting at me saying tat why did you go (using bad words. He beats me often without any reasons. He doesn't save money. He spends all his salary for restaurant food and going out (he says he doesn't like my cooking. He doesn't care for me anything. Abruptly he splits words. He hurts me a lot. Many times I had think tat I should have not accepted for divorce and my first husband is far better. Please suggest me how can I overcome this problems. I have talked to my husband many times privately for not to hurt me. No use though. No kids yet. Physically he involves with me good. No problems in sexual life.

Dear thara, you are living your husband for two years and two years are not at all enough to understand each other. Differences arise because of lack of understanding. You already had spoken to your husband about this. You are doing everything you can to tackle the problem, but your husband is not relenting. I can understand. I need to know more about your husband so as to provide you some tips to manage and change his behavior. Please contact me and provide as many details as possible. I will help you. Don't worry. Take care.

To clear your doubts you need to be examined and kidney functions also needed. It may not be muscle that is growing and body pain is not die to kidney.

Black coloured vomit could be simply altered food particles but more importantly it could be altered blood too. I suggest Upper GI endoscopy and further management as advised by Gastroentrologist.

I am demotivated, frustrated and starting to lose my self esteem. I was a very good student and I secured high marks during my board exams but now I don't feel like studying. I have started losing confidence. What should I do?

It is natural to be anxious when you are writing an importantexam so that you do well but excess anxiety can be counterproductive and hinder your learning and revision. If you are suffering from depression, then you will need to take psychiatric treatment and undergo psychological counselling as well to manage depression. Cognitive behaviour therapy is excellent for controlling rumination and negative thinking, anger management and any emotional disturbance. 1. You need to understand the source of your emotional upheaval and learn to either manage with it or cope with it so that you can concentrate on your studies. 3. Exercising regularly within your capacity is very important so that natural neuro are released in the brain and you will feel relax and calmer and more confident and motivated to do many things. You can run, walk, gym, dance, whatever you can and want to do. 4. Avoid all kind od processed and refined foods and replace with fresh fruit and vegetables for your nutrition. You need more of lean proteins, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin b12 and vitamin d3 for optimal brain functioning and emotional wellbeing. 5. Sleeping well for 6-8 hours every night is important for the brain to recoup from daily stress and body from physical stress. Please do bhramri and anulom vilom pranayama to help you sleep well every evening for 10 min each. Please give your exams only that much importance that is due to it because life is more than these exams and not everything in your life depends on them.

Dear sir or mam My memory power is weak How can I increase it? What r the foods that boosts memory power?

BHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Keep yourself busy in day time, have a light dinner, and spend your time with strict discipline. Each moment is precious. Be a strict vegetarian because you are what you eat. Drink cow's milk in night about three hours after dinner about three times in a week. Do not waste time with mundane messages from internet at night. Instead listen to divine stories and Kirtana before sleep. Please remember to chant any names of God who you have faith in, with love and devotion.

Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid we have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin food -have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. -avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. -use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. - hard water is harmful. Boiling and cooling will reduce hardness. - when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. - use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair.

Achilles tendonitis or heel pain or plantar fasciitis is a very common condition. During night our feet are in a downward position which causes their stiffness. When we try to straighten them in the morning, they are stretched and hence the pain. You can start by doing feet stretching exercises in the morning before getting down from the bed and do ice packs.

Hi there ~ please have your mother consult a gynecologist. Usually the use of a vaginal lubricant cream is all that is necessary to have painless enjoyable sex at that age. However if there is another gynecological issue even that will be addressed. Hope you do so as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely
