Hello- headache is due to your improper sleep and indigestion. Try these ayurvedic treatment- a) use pure almond oil as nasal drops (2 drops) twice daily. B) use shirah shool vajra ras 2 tab twice daily. C) do not sleep in day time. D) avoid fast foods and increase ghee in your diet. E) practice anulom vilom daily in the early morning.

First of all rule out any organic cause. Get checked for thyroid, bp, sugar, lipids and testosterone levels etc. If everything is normal, then go for vascular assessment (penile doppler). If that too is normal, then it is psychogenic and you can consult a psychiatrist. For, more details and explanation. If you want to consult me, ask a private chat/call/video call through lybrate.

I have red eyes for over 3 days? What should I do? What is the reason for red eye? Is it a communicable disease or what should be the precautions needed to avoid it?

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Pune
Red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power. Yes if its infection it can be transmitted to other people.

Myopia is not a disease, it is just an error of refraction. You may try contact lenses if you don't like wearing glasses.

You have myopia, if you can read upto the last line with spectacles that means you have good vision. There are no exercises to reduce eyesight. Glasses are meant for clear vision

These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others.

Is it 100% safe to eye surgery for remove specs? Because my eye doctor wear specs and also advice for remove specs by laser. I am afraid of if fail what is the disadvantages? (my number is now stable)

FACS, FRCOphth, Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Ophthalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Kolkata
I think you are referring to LASIK. LASIK surgery is very safe, and millions of people have had it worldwide including eye specialists. But no surgery is a 100% safe, the operating surgeon will be able to inform you about the potential complications of the procedure. If any doctor tells you any surgical intervention is 100% safe, please do not go to that doctor, as that is just not possible in medicine. We are dealing with a human body which is unique and often unpredictable.

I am using coloured contact lenses, it seems to be red in eye region during usage of lenses. What is the reason for this?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. As some artificial thing comes in direct contact with the our eyes, it causes slight irritation, dilatation of the blood vessels and increased visibility of redness if the lenses are worn for long hours together! There are few more possibilities. You may have developed an allergy or sensitivity to the contact lens material, or the sterilising solution. You could also simply have developed a dry eye, in which case you should only wear your lenses briefly to begin with and try and build up the wear using lubricating eye drops that you can use with contact lenses. If your eyes become red, swollen, or if you experience discharge, you should contact an eye care professional immediately. Your symptoms may be a result of infection, or underlying disease and should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. In order for contact lenses to work the way they’re supposed to, it’s important to care for them properly, following the maintenance and replacement schedule. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

MBBS, cc USG

frequent/ continuous sneezing may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition like allergy to dust/mite/pollen etc so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management. There are some supplement available that can be start after personal consultation and these supplement can reduce severity and no. of episodes of this problem
