For 58+ F with Hypothyroidism & Hypertension, does regular intake of Folvite over past 4-months affect brain activities (e.g. Seizures etc? What are the risks if "complex partial" seizures left undetected (e.g. Confused with syncope etc) & untreated with necessary medicines?

MCh, MBBS, MRCS (UK)
Neurosurgeon, Chennai
Folvite will not produce seizures. Can continue it. Complex partial seizures - if not treated properly it will lead increase in frequency and decrease neurological functions So it has to be treated properly.

Severe Epilepsy - How To Deal With It?

Severe Epilepsy - How To Deal With It?

The word epilepsy brings to mind visions of people frothing at the mouth and rolling on the ground. However, epilepsy affects each patient in a different way. This can make it hard to recognize at times. In the more serious cases of epilepsy, an epileptic attack can make a patient injure himself or develop other life threatening conditions. In rare cases, epilepsy can even cause death. Thus it becomes imperative to understand how to deal with epilepsy.

Treatment options for epilepsy can be categorized as medication, surgical procedures and dietary changes.

1. Medication: Medication for epilepsy is prescribed on the basis of the symptoms presented and the type of epilepsy the patient is suffering from. In most cases, seizures can be controlled with a single type of medication, but in others, the doctor may need to prescribe a combination of medicines to control epilepsy. These forms of medication do have side effects and hence any reactions to the medication must be immediately brought to the doctor's notice. The dosage for epilepsy medication may need to be varied with time. An epileptic patient should never discontinue medication on their own.

2. Surgery: Depending on the type of seizures and the area of the brain affected, a doctor may advise surgery in cases of severe epilepsy. Surgery can help reduce the number of seizures experienced or completely stop them. Surgery to treat epilepsy is of many types. Some of the common procedures are:

  1. Surgery to remove tumor of any such conditions that may be triggering the epileptic attacks
  2. Surgery to remove a small section of the brain from where a seizure originates. This may also be referred to as a lobectomy.
  3. Multiple subpial transaction or a surgery that involves making a series of cuts in the brain to prevent the seizures from spreading to other parts of the brain.
  4. Surgery to sever the neural connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
  5. Surgery to remove half the brain's cortex or outer layer

3. Dietary changes: A diet rich in fats and low in carbohydrates can help reduce seizures. This is known as a ketogenic diet and aims at making the body break down fats instead of carbohydrates. It can cause a buildup of uric acid in the body and thus should be practiced only under the guidance of a dietician. In cases where epileptic attacks are triggered by malnutrition and birth defects, taking vitamin supplements can help lower the frequency of seizures. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurosurgeon.

My mother was suffering from bell's palsy for the past two months. Now she has recovered but she feels a lot of tightness on the nerves on both sides of the forehead. Please suggest me some remedy to relieve this problem.

Bells palsy will lead to weakness of the muscles and it will slowly recover with physiotherapy. All her symptoms will recover slowly. Continue physiotherapy.

Not all the headaches are due to brain tumor. It will be usually associated with other symptoms like vomiting, convulsions, weakness, numbness etc. If you are so much concerned about it go for a neurosurgeon in person consultation and follow his advice.

Is there any medicine for brain tumor? One of my friend is suffering from brain tumor.

MCh, MBBS, MRCS (UK)
Neurosurgeon, Chennai
It depends upon what kind of brain tumor he has, tumour is a abnormal growth in brain and if possible it should be removed. Some tumors will respond to medications and kindly send me further details about his tumour. Then only I can guide you in a proper way.

My father had cardiac arrest after which he was treated with CPR. The entire process after cardiac arrest to hospital was for 5-10 mins and CPR lasted for 15-20 mins. He had seizures after CPR where his MRI result indicates damage to brain. He is in coma for last 1 week (exactly after the cardiac arrest). Though 2 days back he opened his eyes till 1/3rd of original but not at command. And he makes some facial expression while entering tube into his mouth or using suction pipe into his mouth. Please help me understand his chances of recovery. And how soon I can expect him to come out of coma? Appreciate your help!

MCh, MBBS, MRCS (UK)
Neurosurgeon, Chennai
This situation may be due to decreased oxygen supply to brain during the time of cardiac arrest. Brain will with stand few minutes without oxygen supply. If the time exceeds brain cells will go for damage. Sometimes it slowly recover depends upon his brain damage. He needs aggressive rehabilitation after weaning off from ventilator. Regards.
