There is no absolute cure for epilepsy if there is no identifiable cause for it. Most of the epilepsy are idiopathic - i. E. Without any known cause. Anti epileptics given in a optimum dose and number can keep check on epilepsy.

I'm patient of seizure, my Dr. Said after baby I will be all right? Is this truth?

Pregnancy or child birth does not cure seizures unless, it is the cause behind them. If you had seizure during pregnancy then it is likely that after delivery you may not have seizures.

How to tackle Migraine

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Hyderabad
Migraine can be tackled by a combination of medical and lifestyle measures.
Medical measures: if you have frequent episodes, you will need 2 types of medicines- one to be taken daily for a period of at least 6 months as prophylaxis and 2nd to be taken during attacks of headache for quick relief of pain. These medication should be started only after consultation with a neurologist and ruling out other rare but serious causes of headache.

Lifestyle measures:
Lifestyle measures play an equal, if not greater role in management of migraine. They include:
1) regular intake of meals. Avoid fasting, eat breakfast, lumnch and dinner at fixed timings.
2) good 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep daily
3) avoiding foods that precipitate migraine like cheese, chocolate, excess coffee/tea and sour foods

In addition, you may have to temporarily avoid excessive travel and exposure to sunlight which can precipitate headache. Yoga/ meditation and relaxation techniques will help immensely.

I am suffering with epilepsy since 10 yrs, now what is better for me for removing this.

General Physician, Jalgaon

My father is a paralyzed men. And he is 45 years old. His mouth smells bed even he Brushes 3 time a day. What should he do. Please suggest.

General Physician (AM)

Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone. Other dental causes of bad breath include poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries (cavities). The medical condition dry mouth (also called xerostomia) also can cause bad breath. Saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralize acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and can cause bad breath. Dry mouth may be a side effect of various medications, salivary gland problems, or continuous breathing through the mouth. Many other diseases and illnesses may cause bad breath. Here are some to be aware of: respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems. You can buy a number of mouthwashes that claim to eliminate bad breath. However, many of these generally provide only a temporary way to mask unpleasant mouth odor. There are, however, several antiseptic mouth-rinse products that kill the germs that cause bad breath. Ask your dentist about which product is best for you.

Hi sir, I am suffering with fits from 2005, from past 4.5 years I am not facing any problem regarding the issue. The doctor I visit regularly shifted to other place. In staring I used eptoin 300mg-350mg, I am using levipil 500 mg twice a day from 2013 jan. Can I stop medication as I am not suffering with fits about 4.5 years or not, so that I will consult doctor after your opinion.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
As per standard protocols, there needs to at least 5 years of seizure free period before tapering and stopping medications. Newer protocols followed by some doctors believe in stopping medications even if there is 1 year of seizure free interval. It is best that you consult with your neurologist and let him decide on what is best for you.

Pain is the most common reason people in the United States visit their doctors each year. Although pain is highly subjective and difficult to describe, a working definition is ?an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential physical damage.? Its components are physical, cognitive, behavioral, emotional and perceptual. Among people who have Parkinson?s disease (PD), pain is a major complaint. In fact, up to 85 percent of people with Parkinson?s report pain as a troubling symptom. Some of these people experience pain as an early symptom of Parkinson?s, before their disease has even been diagnosed. Yet, pain in Parkinson?s disease often remains undiagnosed and untreated. Thus, it is important to understand that pain can be part of the Parkinson?s experience and to learn ways to manage it. Causes of Pain in Parkinson?s Pain researchers use a classification system that is based on the separation of tissue pain receptors from the nerves that transmit pain signals. Pain can be classified as nociceptive, which relates to tissue damage, implicating the pain receptors in the skin, bones or surrounding tissues; as neuropathic, indicating pain arising in nerves; or as a mixed pain syndrome involving both nociceptive and neuropathic pain. In Parkinson?s, most pain experiences seem to result from tissue that is injured or has the potential to be damaged: causes include persistent tremor, muscle rigidity, dystonia, musculoskeletal injury (i.e., sprains, bruises, bone fractures resulting from a fall etc.), burns and inflammation. The pain is typically well-localized to the affected body part; it may fluctuate with the medication dosing. Pain caused by dystonia can be diagnosed when there is visible twisting, cramping or posturing of the painful body part. The most common areas of the body where people with Parkinson?s experience pain are the neck, upper back and extremities. In Parkinson?s, neuropathic pain is less common than nociceptive pain, and includes a number of conditions not directly related to PD, such as shingles, cancer pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, and peripheral neuropathy. The pain may present as burning, numbness and tingling, sharp sensations, or electric shock qualities. Pain due to nerve or root disease is most commonly caused by akathisia, an extreme inner restlessness. Parkinson?s specialists gain insight from the perspective of the pain specialist, and often select treatments based on the nociceptive versus neuropathic classification. In practical terms, it often proves helpful to conceptualize the experience of pain in Parkinson?s as relating to one or more of the following five categories: pain from the muscles or skeleton, pain from nerves or spinal roots, pain related to sustained twisting or writhing, discomfort from akathisia and pain caused directly by changes in chemicals in the brain due to Parkinson?s. The Impact of Pain It is important to address pain because it may interfere with day-to-day activities, mood, sleep and overall enjoyment of life. Specific problems resulting from chronic pain may include sleep disturbance, malnutrition, social withdrawal, physical and functional decline, depression, anxiety and impaired cognition. Pain also accounts for increased overall health care costs. A person?s perception of pain can be affected by emotional factors. Scientists have shown that depression, which affects approximately 40 percent of individuals diagnosed with Parkinson?s, plays an important role in the way people perceive pain. Similarly, tension and muscle stress caused by anxiety can compound pain. Cognitive processes ? how a person views pain and how he or she pays attention to it ? also influence the level of pain a person feels. A person who pays more attention to his or her pain and reacts to pain with a high level of stress will likely experience more pain than someone who tries to ignore the pain and considers it irrelevant to his or her daily life. Feeling helpless to control pain ? that is, believing that pain is uncontrollable or that there are no treatment options or health professionals available to assist in managing pain ? can also make pain seem worse. Fortunately, many options exist for treating pain. How can you find which are right for you? The first step is to talk to your doctor who can assess your pain and then help to build a pain management plan. Assessing and Managing Pain Your doctor can assess pain through a clinical interview and neurological examination, sometimes performed in both the unmedicated state and when the Parkinson?s medications are working fully. Your doctor may also ask you to describe the characteristics of your pain. For example, when do you feel pain? Where in the body is your pain? Does the pain feel hot or cold, stabbing or burning? You also may be asked to report how pain impacts your daily activities ? for example, walking or sleeping. The more information you can provide about your pain, the better your doctor will be able to diagnose and treat it. Management options for pain in Parkinson?s include both the pharmacological (i.e., medications) and the non-pharmacological. A combination of both may offer the best pain control, and an interdisciplinary model of care can lead to optimal results for pain management. Some treatment options include: medications physical therapy massage botulin toxin injections nutrition management exercise acupuncture/acupressure psychotherapy (emphasis on pain management) stretching Because of the relationship between dopamine and pain, dopaminergic medications such as levodopa can affect a person?s perception of pain. People with Parkinson?s who are in the ?on? levodopa state, when the medication is at peak effectiveness, report less pain than those in the ?off? state. Pain due to rigidity or dystonia can be relieved by dopamine drugs, but on the other hand, may cause dyskinesias. Therefore, effective management of levodopa medication for people with Parkinson?s may help to reduce pain. Because certain thought processes and behaviors can alleviate or worsen pain, some people find psychotherapy helpful for managing their pain. Techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (helping to control the psychological response to pain; teaching diaphragmatic breathing, visual imagery exercises, relaxation techniques, etc.), and biofeedback may help ease pain, but are unlikely to eliminate it completely. A physical therapist can help you select and modify appropriate exercise routines. Of course, you should avoid activities or exercises that make your pain worse.

My hands and my body are trembling /vibrating, when I stand somewhere for sometime the headache suddenly started.
Trembling hands and headache could be due to multiple reasons- thyroid problem, migraine and other neurological issues. A thorough history and few tests would be needed to come to appropriate diagnosis.
