Dear friend, Since you had last seizure 4 years back, you are quite safe now. Although it depends on the seizure type, standard practice and in most common case ,we taper off antiepileptic drug after 3-4 year of seizure free interval. For you, I think it's okay if you join night duty at this stage provided you get a good -- day time sleep of total 7-8 hour in total in 24 hours. It will not affect your medications either. Wish you all the best!

In case you take regular medicines for epilepsy the attacks can be controlled. Please do not miss the drugs as suggested. The most important cause of precipitation of an seizure is missing the dose. Nothing to worry.

Can The Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease?

Can The Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease?

Alzheimer's disease (AD), otherwise called Alzheimer's, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that gets progressively worse over time. This condition may start with acute anxiety and dementia, for certain patients. It begins gradually and becomes worse after some time. It is the reason behind almost sixty to seventy percent of the dementia cases. The most well known early indication is trouble in remembering recent events and occasions also known as short-term memory loss.

As the disease progresses, indications can include issues with speech, confusion (effortlessly getting lost), mood swings, loss of inspiration, overseeing self-care and behavioural issues. As the patient’s condition worsens, they regularly pull back from family and society. Over time, bodily functions are lost. Despite the fact that the speed of progression of the disease can differ, the average life expectancy is three to nine years.

  • Immunity Matters: Immune cells that ordinarily help us battle off bacterial and viral infections may assume a far more prominent part in Alzheimer's disease than expected. A number of immune system particles have been connected to Alzheimer's disease. Many of them having been identified in the brain tissues of Alzheimer's patients.
  • Neuroinflammation: Neuroinflammation is, by definition, irritation of the sensory or nervous tissue. This term is generally connected with endless aggravation and chronic inflammation. In spite of the fact that we realise that the immune system is in charge of setting off this inflammation, how this happens has not been totally understood yet. The immune system has been seen as the first line of defence to threats and dangers to the brain. It is quickly activated and takes care of the danger with an inflammatory response which causes the condition of Alzheimer’s to worsen.
  • Microglia: Irritation in a neurodegenerative disease like Alzheimer's is driven essentially by immune cells living in the central nervous system, to be specific microglia. With regards to Alzheimer's, microglia cells can detect the presence of protein totals and react to them. It is believed that the development of Alzheimer's disease may originate from the microglia’s lost capacity to react to A-beta accumulation, therefore allowing its aggregation to continue. This view is upheld by genetic studies in patients with Alzheimer's disease portraying transformations in immune molecules that can trade off microglia's responsiveness.
  • Other Signs: Other than genetics, there are different signs that indicate an association with the immune system in the advancement of the disease. These include, for instance, a few immunological links found in the cerebrospinal liquid of Alzheimer's patients from the beginning or epidemiologic proof showing that the prolonged treatment with nonsteroidal mitigating drugs lessens the danger of creating Alzheimer's. Hence, where the immune system acts as a defence mechanism, it can also act as a trigger in some cases that could cause or enhance the Alzheimer’s disease even further.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Migraine and Headache

MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Delhi

Hello friends. I am Dr Sandeep Madaan. I am M.D. in Ayurveda from the University of Rajasthan. Now I have been practising Ayurveda in Delhi from last more than 14 years. Today we will talk about Migraine.

Migraine and migraine headaches are very common. The commonly affected people are middle age women in the age of 30s or 40s. It is more prevalant in the families which means that the ladies affected with this problem, pass the disease to the next generation. This disease is characterised by the headcahe. It may be one sided or both sided, but it is always episodic that means it comes in episodes like after few days, few weeks, few months. It is always associated with the diseases such as Nausea, vomiting, sleep disorder. The person find it very difficult to concentrate any needs, good sleep and often vomits and find relief in the headache.

These days many people in long term consume analgesics and many other chemical based medicines. But this is not a solution for Migraine. Ayurveda can be very effective and without side effect medicines or the supplements which are proven to be very effective in the long term.

Also, there is a special therapy called Nasya therapy in which we give special oil drops in the nose for sometime, for example- for a week or two weeks, and patient find it very effective for managing the migraine. Basically the person find that the severity of the headache decrease and the symptoms like Nausea, vomiting, lack of sleep etc. these slowly dimished. It takes around 2-3 months for the response of the therapies. But it is really very effective without any untowards side effects.

If you want to consult, you can consult me through Lybrate.

Thank you very much.

Sir how to concentrate on study. I am preparing for exam can't concentrate too much. I am not addictive to any kind of addiction like smoking drinking etc. I am losing interest in study I don't know why this is happening. I was an average student but now I am getting worser. My question is 1.What should I do to overcome this problem. 2.Is there medicine required for concentration?

There is no medication for increasing concentration. So don't enter into any medication or pill. Yes, you can increase concentration by meditation, OM chanting, yoga; and also any physical activity, like sports, or even walking. Also, please love whatever you are doing. You are losing interest because you are studying forcefully without loving your study. Try and love your work. Don't treat it as a burden, start enjoying it. Concentration will improve drastically.

Please let me know if a person who had meningitis many years before will still need to fear of any side effects? Also please advice me if a girl who had meningitis during childhood will develop any complications during pregnancy or delivery? Whether those who had meningitis are good for married life?

Neurologist, Rajkot
If the meningitis is cured and there is no problem currently, there is nothing to fear. No problems occur in marriage, pregnancy or delivery.
