I am suffering from insomnia and early awakening when I woke up feel extremely tired.
Hello, main causes of sleeping disorders are as follows:- significant life stress (job loss or change, death of a loved one, divorce, moving) illness. Emotional or physical discomfort. Environmental factors like noise, light, or extreme temperatures (hot or cold) that interfere with sleep. Do meditation every morning. Take kali phos 6x, 5 tabs every night. Take avena sativa q, 10 drops and passiflora q, 30 drops, mix them in half cup of water and drink it, half an hour before your bed time, daily for a month. This will definitely help you. Thanks.

What causes panic disorder or panic attack. It can be cure in short period or take time to cure. If it occurs suddenly e. G when in office, driving, market etc. Etc. What is the emergency steps to be taken. Coz. It fill like, it's going to be heart attack, the heart beats very quickly, shaking body sometimes feel that I am going to be die it occurs, feeling very uncomfortable. So, please give a good advice to overcome this illness.

It is purely non- confident state of mental health. Those with strong will power can resist any such attack successfully and come out to be victorious even though the attack was a real one. So try to develop confidence in yourself as your un - supportive will power is your only enemy. In this disease confrontation with each other and reassurance helps most rather than any drug.

This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help to reduce the pain and feel relaxed and comfortable. You shall also do hot water fermentation that would improve the blood circulation to the painful area and thereby the pain would be reduced. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain and also that would improve the cervical angle and improve the anatomical posture. The pain actually triggers due to nerve compression and that would definitely improve by wearing a cervical collar.

I believe homoeopathy has a very good scope where there is nervous system involvement. It can not only stop the progress of the disease but improves the general health... But to treat it properly my advise is to go for a detail and ideal homoeopathic case taking... one takes enough care to go through your case in detail and selects the best indicated medicine...

Delay Alzheimer's by Drinking 3 Cups of Coffee a Day

Love coffee? Here's a compelling reason to keep drinking it.

The Journal of Alzheimer's Disease published a study that demonstrated some significant results related to coffee and cognitive function.

Researchers in Florida measured the amount of caffeine in participants by taking blood samples and testing the caffeine plasma levels. They also tested participants' cognitive functioning at the start of the study and categorized people as fitting into one of three categories:
Normal cognitive functioning- Overall, memory, judgment and decision-making were intact.
Mild Cognitive Impairment- Participants displayed some difficulty in cognitive functioning. Mild cognitive impairment often develops into Alzheimer's disease.
Dementia- The individual displayed clear impairments in cognition such as memory deficits, communication, judgment, etc.
After a period of two to four years, researchers found that a higher level of caffeine plasma (greater than 1200 ng/ml) was correlated with the following results:

Stable cognitive functioning (no cognitive decline) was maintained in those who began the study with normal cognition.
A lack of progression to dementia occurred in the participants who began the study in the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) category. This is especially notable because there is usually a high rate of progression from MCI to dementia.
Additionally, a higher rate of progression from mild cognitive impairment to dementia was seen in participants whose caffeine intake was lower.

There are 2 different thing 1.-fracture ankle2.-numbness in ankle .numbness may be because of uncontrolled diabetic status for which he need diabetes control & take neurotrophic drugs I think surgery is advised for neglected fracture ankle which is causing painful ankle now.

I'm 27 Year old man with frequent migraines and I take migranil or Suminat tablets. The pain is very severe and sometimes lasts for two days. Please suggest ways to avoid migraines and please clarify if it is normal to get migraines frequently and also suggest medication. Thank you!

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
he International Headache Society defines chronic migraine as more than fifteen headache days per month over a three month period of which more than eight are migrainous, in the absence of medication over use. Episodic migraine is the other migraine sub-type, which is defined as less than 15 headache days per month. Though migraine causes aren't understood, genetics and environmental factors appear to play a role. Migraines may be caused by changes in the brainstem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve, a major pain pathway. Imbalances in brain chemicals — including serotonin, which helps regulate pain in your nervous system — also may be involved. Researchers are still studying the role of serotonin in migraines. You have to avoid triggers which bring on migraine and do meditation and yoga and when there is pain take SUminat. A number of factors may trigger migraines, including: Hormonal changes in women. Fluctuations in estrogen seem to trigger headaches in many women. ... Foods. Aged cheeses, salty foods and processed foods may trigger migraines. ... Food additives. ... Drinks. ... Stress. ... Sensory stimuli. ... Changes in wake-sleep pattern. ... Physical factors.

Hi Doctor, I am suffering from insomnia. I am working as a scientist in one of the reputed company and staying alone far from my family. I can not sleep more than 3-4 h per day. I am taking diazepam/Clonazepam lowest dose on need basis. Initially it helped me and I can get sleep when I used to take it. Now, After taking sedatives also, I am not able to sleep. Because of that I am not able to do my day work efficiently. I have consulted one psychiatrist who gave me anti depressant (X). When I take it, I feel very calm. I got the 7 kg weight gain because of that and I stopped the treatment. After stopping the medicine, situation has been worsened more. I can not even express suddenly what happen to me which is completely uncontrollable. One small thought provokes 10 thoughts and 10 thoughts provoke 100 big thoughts. The tragedy of this is I can not share it to any one. I tried once, but no one is believing and taking me seriously. After some time I am able to realize that, it is not impacting any body other than me. Its my loss, I know that truth also, but I can not control my thoughts. It is my kind request to help or suggest me something as soon as possible to get out of it.

Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually the relief in symptoms will be better if surgery is done as early as symptoms appeared and I will have to see your discharge papers to understand what was the exact story in your case. Also a recent mri of ls spine can be of help along with a detailed neurological examination to see whether there is any compression there or not? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
