If you are suffering from hypertension then you should consume anti hypertensive medicine regularly. If your bp is normal then there is no need to take this medication.

See a good physiotherapist, you will recover but it will take time and hard work. Do some message regularly. The only important thing here is do not give up, recovery is slow in such cases but it does occur.

Hi. As you said, your bp is fluctuating, and you also notice some facial hair growth. You should consult a gynaecologist in you town and let her judge weather you need any further investigation for these things. Heart doctors have less role to play in your case. Take care.

Back Pain and Bad Sleep

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur
Back Pain and Bad Sleep

Pain related sleep disruption has affected a large number of people around the globe. Statistics has it that, in India, about 25% of the population suffers from pain-related sleep deprivation. Studies call it ‘the vicious cycle of pain and sleep’ as pain affects your ability to sleep and lack of sleep makes the pain even worse.

Back pain and arthritis are examples of some common pain-related medical disorders. People with these types of chronic pains have reported persistent sleeplessness or have had immense trouble falling asleep.

The following are the primary sleep disorders associated with chronic pain:

  1. Insomnia: It is a medical condition that is characterized by an inability to fall asleep no matter how physically exhausted you are. Insomnia can be acute (lasting for one night to a week) or chronic (that lasts for more than 3 weeks).
  2. Hypersomnia: It is a condition wherein you tend to sleep excessively; in this condition, you will have trouble being awake throughout the day or can fall asleep at any point of time.
  3. Sleep Apnoea: This is a sleep disorder wherein breathing pauses and resumes repeatedly. Risk factors include obesity, age and gender; it is more commonly observed in men. This condition can be chronic with symptoms such as snoring loudly or feeling very tired even after one has had a night’s sleep.
  4. Restless leg syndrome: It is a sleep disorder wherein you continuously move your legs while sleeping. However, this condition can also cause you to move your legs even if you aren’t sleeping.

Some of the causes of sleep disorders due to chronic pain are:

  1. Pain
  2. Worry and anxiety
  3. Sweating at night
  4. Depression and other mental disorders

Treatment

A pain and sleep disorder should be simultaneous as both the components of it, pain and sleep, are interrelated. Some of the ways people with chronic pain can still have a good night’s sleep are:

  • Limiting caffeine intake
  • Abstaining from alcohol and smoking, as these disrupt the sleep cycles, thus aggravating the existing pain.
  • Practicing meditation and other relaxation techniques
  • Pain killers or sleeping pills can be administered, but only with the doctor’s advice.
  • Hot water fomentation over painful area during night, for better sleep. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Probably it may b due to anaemia. Do blood test. If no anaemia found rule out thyroid. Check your bmi. Your bp and also chest x ray if all reports are normal also do 2 d echo. If cardiologist advise angiography go for it. All reports all normal then anxiety should b treated.

If a mother has seizures is there any possibly that even child could have the same after birth? And what difficulties or problem will the fetus have during pregnancy when the mother have epilepsy during her pregnancy? mainly in the first trimester?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Epilepsy is a neurological disease and children of person suffering from epilepsy are more vulnerable to have seizure disorder. This means children may have or may not have the disease. If a pregnant lady suffers from epileptic fits it may cause abortion or some birth defects. Secondly few anti epileptic drugs may also harm the fetus. So before planning pregnancy the lady should be put on some safer anti epileptic drug. Folic acid prevents the harmful effects of anti epileptic drugs and reduces the chances of birth defects in child.
