I have epilepsy I am in medication with Oxytol 300 for two years Since then I haven't experienced any seizures my doctor says it will take 2-3 years to cure. I want to ask what is the reason for it? Can the medication cause long term health risks? My CT scan of brain is normal and my recent EEG report shows" Sharp transients occurring from both hemispheres of brain" as it showed two years before. Am I improving?

I get severe headache coz of migraine. Coz f which I get mood swings. Please help me with same.

Tips for migraine: 1.Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes. 2.Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. 3.Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. 4.Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. 5.Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. 6.Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system.

There are some of the very effective ayurveda compound like brahmi ghrita, kalyanak ghrita, tagat-jataamansi powders etc. Shirodhara procedure is also very effective. Apart from medicines, try meditation and pranayama never discontinue your physician's medicines before his advice take care.

Last year I went through MTP. Since then my weight has been increasing. In between I had an accident in which I had brain hemorrhage so I was on medicine for 3-4 continuously. I also had irregular mensuration. So I want to ask that my weight is due to hormonal changes after MTP or is it medication effect after accident? Kindly help.

General Physician, Cuttack
Weight gain is not due to hormonal changes after mtp and after taking medicine for brain hemorrhage. It could be due to other reasons. Investigate yourself after consulting gynecologist to find out the cause. Take usg abdomen to rule out polycystic ovary disease which can be a major reason for weight gain.

What & where does one get a cure for sleep apnea. Is there a test .What is the cost.

What & where does one get a cure for sleep apnea. Is there a test .What is the cost.
Hi Lybrate-user Yes there is a test for sleep apnea. It is called polysomnography or sleep study. This test is done overnight when you are asleep. It will involve connecting certain wires and electrodes which will monitor your breathing pattern, oxygen level in blood, air flow, ECG and many more during sleep. The cost varies on the level of sleep study. Basic study measures only 3 or 4 parameters. While a comprehensive sleep study have more than 20 channels. Thus it may vary between 2000 to 15000 depending on the number of channels. Finally treatment involves lifestyle modification, Using certain devices while sleeping and under special circumstances surgery. The treatment will depend on the severity of sleep apnea in sleep study.
