Alcohol is a potent toxic material for brain. Your doctors must have advised you not to consume. Alcohol can precipitate seizure and it can reduce the effect of medicine also.

I am 31 years female. I just visited neurologist because I have been facing problem with my left foot. There is no pain even not muscle pain neither bone pain. Problem with my leg is it is just not able to take a load on it. So while wailking, my walk goes left right. I am not able to walk striaght. Neurologist asked me to do mri. Result showed this is due to multiple sclerosis (m. S.) doctor said there is no cure for it. Just we can avoid it to spread it further. Apart from this I am facing weakness at times. Once after I have my meals I feel better. Also not able to stand for a longer period. I had also gone for a blood check which showed vitamin d3 is less than 8 where it has to me more than 30. Please revert thank you.

You have a serious problem. This illness ms is generally relapsing and remitting. Symptoms comes and go away. Unpredictable. Cause is not exactly known. But autoimmunity is at fault. Allergy of nerve covering of nerves of brain. I strongly advise you to only take treatment from a neurologist, better he be the same doctor. Don't change doctors. If he know your case from beginning he will be better efficiently manage, and will be able to help you better. Trust him, your illness is such that you have to be very patient and cool.

I am a female, age 40 yrs. After I wake up in the morning my hands and part of legs get numb and there is tremendous pain in the hands and legs. But as soon as I start my daily routine in the morning, the pain tends to reduce and finally goes off. This started from a finger moving to the whole hands and now to legs. Please Advise.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. It appears that this is not an orthopaedic case because it is only after inactivity of night time. I will advise you to get in touch of a vascular or a general surgeon and get a vascular cause ruled out. I will be more than happy to assist you if everything is normal from their side. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

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.

Brain Tumors - How Radiosurgery Can Help?

MD, MBBS
Oncologist, Ernakulam
Brain Tumors - How Radiosurgery Can Help?

Short course radiation therapy is the one of the most talked about subject in recent years and also a fascinating research zone. Hypofractionated radiation therapy is an old concept, but only in recent years with tremendous improvement in radiation therapy delivery technologies there is a significant visible surge in it’s applicability in clinical practice. Modern radiation therapy technology is capable of delivering high dose to the target while sparing majority of the adjacent critical structures. Hence, it is possible to deliver short course of treatment regimen with higher dose per fraction without increasing in toxicity. In brain tumours, radiosurgery with gamma-knife is considered standard of care in many of the clinical indications such as small meningiomas, acaustic schwannomas, residual low grade gliomas, AVMs and solitary/ oligo brain metastasis. Gamma-knife radiosurgery is in clinical practice for more than five decades.

There are several prospective and randomized studies (level I evidence) with long-term follow up data supporting the use of radiosurgery in these clinical indications. Other indications of radiosurgery are pituitary tumour, craniopharyngiomas, glomus tumours, chordomas and others. Robotic radiosurgery (CyberKnife®) is precision radiosurgery delivery system and an extension of gamma-knife system. CyberKnife uses the principle of gamma-knife, but with linear accelerator source instead of multiple cobalt sources. CyberKnife is capable to treating all tumours indicated for gamma-knife with similar accuracy.

This modern tool has some additional advantages from gamma-knife, such as

1) CyberKnife can use fractionated treatment, hence relatively larger tumours can be treated.

2) Require only thermoplastic mask, no need for invasive frame.

3) Has inverse planning system, can spare critical structure.

4) There is a ‘intra-fraction’ correction technology with imaging.

5) There is no need to change the source, hence may be more cost effective.

6) Can be used to treat extra-cranial tumours also. CyberKnife has a linear accelerator attached with a robot and is capable of treatment from various coplanar and non-coplanar field arrangements. CyberKnife has sub-millimeter accuracy and unmatched dose distribution.

The advanced technology behind CyberKnife uses image guidance technology and computer-controlled robotics to deliver and extremely precise dose of radiation to targets, avoiding the surrounding healthy tissue, and adjusting for patient and tumor movement during treatment. In conclusion, CyberKnife is an extension of gammaknife radiosurgery delivery system. This machine has immense promise to treat with short course regimens with high dose and improve local control without increasing toxicities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

The stomach needs to be refuelled every 90 minutes. Veggie or fruit salad, or oats or whole wheat biscuits are some of the good sources. After your breakfast time, there is a time gap of 3 hrs. Due to this, you feel weak and dizzy; thus, brain does not function properly.
