Multiple sclerosis is a system disorder which also effects eye. No prophylactic treatment or life style modification is required as far as eye is concerned. However based on other systemic problems, and mri certain medication are prescribed. Consult neurologist.

What are the reasons for a migraine headache. I think I've been having several these past few days.

DRCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
It is triggered due to acidity, stress, loss of sleep, emotional disturbances and some environmental factors. Try to avoid the factors which excite pain in your case. Take easy digestible food to avoid acidity. Sleep for at least 8 hours. Avoid taking stress. Take homeopathic medicine for complete cure.

When my mom was young at the age of 20 she had an accident and had a brain surgery. And now she is 47 years old and she is suffering from memory loss and When she looses her memory she talks something senseless which does not have any link with our personal life. Please doctor help us is it urgent to admit her ?

Hi lybrate-user, head injury can cause several problems not only memory loss. A head injury about 27 years ago must have done some structural changes inside your mom's brain which r responsible for this. A brain injury can change a personality. At times it requires treatment, both pharmacological n nonpharnacological. But at the same time care givers need some training how to tackle this kind of problems in a sympathetic way. So it will b better to consult with both a neurologist n a psychiatrist. Thanks.

Amnesia - How It Is Related With Brain Surgery?

Amnesia - How It Is Related With Brain Surgery?

Often it has been observed in patients undergoing a brain surgery that their memory gets affected. The memory can sometimes be affected either by the tumor growing inside the brain or by the surgery for the removal of that tumor. Rather than the long-term memory, in the majority of the brain surgery cases, it is the short term memory that gets affected more noticeably. Further, sometimes, people have difficulties in making new memories after the brain surgery along with retrieving the old ones. Continue reading to know more about brain surgery and amnesia.

How is brain surgery connected to amnesia?
The presence of a tumor in the brain can affect one's memory in two different ways. Though not everyone suffers from it, there is a possibility that the treatment or the surgery often leads to memory difficulties and sometimes it's the location of the tumor in the brain that causes the memory damage. Sometimes, even radiations or chemotherapy sessions can also be responsible for amnesia. One must know that having a brain tumor or opting for a brain surgery doesn’t necessarily cause memory loss or amnesia for everyone. And those patients who do suffer from this, both the severity and symptoms of the memory loss vary from one to another.

Probable memory difficulties
Memory difficulties, also commonly referred to as amnesia, can be two different types, retrograde amnesia, and anterograde amnesia, irrespective of whether it is the result of the treatment or the location of the tumor. In case of retrograde amnesia, the memory loss occurs before undergoing a brain surgery, or sometimes even before developing the brain tumor. However, those who suffer from anterograde amnesia face difficulties in remembering their previous memories after the brain surgery is performed.

Coping with amnesia
Once the type of memory loss one is suffering from is identified, there are various ways and strategies to cope with amnesia, suggested by the doctors. Taking good care of one’s self, having the necessary amount of sleep along with a healthy diet helps one improve his or her capacity of recalling the forgotten memories in many cases.

Further, by adopting simple measures like maintaining a diary, following a routine and organizing one's medications with reminder notes can also help an amnesia patient in coping with the normal life situations. Minimizing the distractions and focusing on a single thing at a time can also be helpful in not only coping with it but also in improving the memory.

In case one displays signs of having a memory problem after a brain surgery, he or she should be immediately taken to a clinical psychologist or a neuropsychologist. Because it is with the help of this medical professional that severity of the amnesia that the person is suffering from and which part of memory has been affected can be determined, and the right ways of coping with the issue can be suggested.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
