Uterine fibroids, also referred to as uterine myomas) are non-cancerous tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus. As many as 20% to 50% women between the age group of 18 to 40 suffer from the condition, but not all cases warrant treatment.
It may be as tiny as a coin or it may grow to the size of a watermelon, making people think the lady is 6/7 months pregnant! There may be one big fibroid or several small ones.
Though the exact causes are not known, family history and hormonal imbalances are said to be the main causes for the same.
Types of Uterine Fibroids
The four types are:
- Subserosal Uterine Fibroids: Develops outside the uterus and continues to grow.
- Intramural Uterine Fibroids: The most common type that lead to pregnancy like tummy. They develop within the uterus wall and continue to expand.
- Submucosal Uterine Fibroids: Because these develop within the uterus lining, they are most likely to be the cause of heavy flow during periods.
- Pedunculated Uterine Fibroids: These grow on the inner or outer side of a small stalk connecting to the uterus.
- An enlarged uterus is the most common symptom. It is often mistaken for general weight gain or pregnancy.
- Prolonged and painful menstrual cycle, that is many times irregular.
- Urinary incontinence and constant urge to urinate.
- Pelvic pressure.
- Pressure on the bowels leading to constipation.
- Pain during intercourse.
If you find out that you have fibroids during an examination or if you visit a doctor with any of these symptoms, they will most likely ask for an ultrasound or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which will confirm the type of fibroid and the extent of your problem. Treatment includes non-invasive-focused ultrasound surgery.
Treatment with Homeopathy:
One of the best advantages of choosing Homeopathy is that it works without side effects. It addresses the issue rather than the symptom. A surgical procedure mentioned in general treatment does remove the fibroids but there is no guarantee that they won't grow back as the underlying issue of hormonal imbalance remains.
During a clinical study of the effects of Homeopathy on fibroids, 85% patients showed improvement and 48% people had complete fibroid removal.
Treatment: There are medicines in Homeopathy that can treat uterine fibroids, cervical fibroids and help maintain normal hormonal balance in females.

Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that affects certain nerves of the face and results in terrible pain. In most of the cases, it is seen that the individual affected with this condition feel like an electric shock passing through the face. It can sometimes be too intense, and the affected one might feel an unbearable pain. One thing that is to be remembered here is that not all types of facial pain would indicate the presence of trigeminal neuralgia. If you feel consistent pain on your face for a long duration of time, it is recommended that you consult a specialist as there may be an underlying condition that needs to be attended.
What could lead to trigeminal neuralgia?
It is extremely important to understand the causes of the condition as it will give you a clear picture of the reasons for facial pain. At the same time, the proper identification of the symptoms is quite crucial to know whether the reason for facial pain is due to trigeminal neuralgia.
This condition starts with the irritation and discomfort of the trigeminal nerve. This might be resulting from a blood vessel pressing on the nerve which damages the protective coating around it known as the myelin sheath. Certain types of diseases like multiple sclerosis can cause injury to the myelin sheath which can result in the symptoms of the trigeminal neuralgia. Moreover, the presence of a tumor or a tangle of the arteries can also create pressure on the nerve giving rise to the pain. Trigeminal neuralgia can also be caused by the injury of the trigeminal nerve due to any accident, surgery or a stroke.
Signs and Symptoms of Trigeminal neuralgia
For the proper identification of the facial pain and to confirm that it is trigeminal neuralgia, you need to look out for the symptoms. The first symptom is brief periods of shooting or stabbing pain in the face. The pain can just be triggered by the brushing of teeth, washing the face or shaving and similar other activities. The attacks of the episodes of the pain happen several times in a day, or it might happen that no pain is experienced throughout the whole week.
The pain is experienced on only one side of the face. The duration of pain ranges from a few seconds to several minutes. In some severe cases, they might turn unbearable, and the episodes of attacks are significantly increased. The pain is also experienced in the cheek, jaws, teeth, lips and even the gums. Thus, it is extremely important to seek medical advice on an immediate basis so that the condition does not further worsen. The doctor would be able to assess the signs and symptoms and give you an insight into the the the causes of facial and decide on the treatment options based on the diagnosis.
