A ct scan or mri of brain with blood test for afb and chest x ray would differentiate the two. Both have 100% cure rates. So you need not worry. You have to be patient though. You can try giving a proper history to your doctor if you haven't yet. You can also go for eitb or elisa. Take care.

Most sex headaches are nothing to worry about. But some can be related to problems with the blood vessels of brain. Also with use of some medications, such as birth control pills. Magnetic resonance angiography (mra) and computerized tomography (ct) angiography may diagnose. Some medications may be taken daily to prevent sex headaches. They're recommended only if she has frequent or prolonged attacks. These are anti-migraine medications and can be taken an hour before sex to prevent headaches.

Headaches can impair daily routine adversely. Particularly if the headache appear daily and last longer than 1-2 hours. If the problem is for last 10 years, I hope you must have investigated yourself in detail and not resorted to just painkillers. If the problem of headache is so troublesome I would recommend you to visit a neurologist and a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management.

Dear lybrate-user, ghee helps as lubricant and its easy to pass the stool, when you have fissures the hard stool can cause more pain. But this is not the solution of fissure it prevents pain. The gap between milk and lactifiber of 1 hour will be good, although it is not needed. Homeopathy has given the best result in constipation and fissures. Do not suffer from this we are just one click away. Get well soon.

Sleep Apnea and Its Link to Heart Failure

We're all guilty of making fun of snorers, but sometimes this snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where breathing is not continuous and may start and stop many times while asleep. This affects the quality of your sleep and in turn can affect many aspects of your health including your cardiovascular health. Here's how:

High blood pressure
When a sleep apnea patient's breathing stops, the oxygen levels in the blood also suddenly fall. This can increase your blood pressure. High blood pressure means that the heart muscles need to work harder to pump blood through the body.

Cardiomyopathy
As a result of high blood pressure, the heart walls may become thicker and the heart muscles become stiffer. This is known as cardiomyopathy. As this condition worsens, the heart becomes weaker and is unable to maintain a regular rhythm. This can eventually lead to heart failure.

Arrhythmia
An irregular heartbeat is also known as arrhythmia. This may also be related to the changes in the heart's structure that follow the drop in blood oxygen levels. In many cases, arrhythmia has no visible symptoms and can often go undiagnosed. This can result in the formation of blood clots in the atria which can lead to a stroke.

Sleep apnea is easy to diagnose. If the doctor feels that you show symptoms of sleep apnea, you may be asked to stay on the hospital overnight and undergo a sleep evaluation. This tests a variety of body functions including brain activity, eye movements, heart rate, breathing patterns and blood oxygen levels.

Treatment for sleep apnea depends on the causes for this condition. If you are overweight, regular exercise and a change in diet can help you lose the excess weight and cure sleep apnea. Similarly, if your sleep apnea is triggered by an allergy, treating the allergy can help cure the sleep apnea. Other forms of treatment for sleep apnea may include:

Continuous positive airway pressure (cpap)
This is a machine which pumps air into the body through a nasal mask. By keeping the pressure in the machine higher than normal air pressure the upper airway passages are kept open and hence the quality of your sleep is improved. An auto cpap machine can modulate the air pressure such that it is higher when you inhale and lower when you exhale.;

Oral devices
Your doctor may suggest oral devices that allow you to keep your mouth open while you sleep. This is easier to use than cpap machine but less effective. Surgery is the last resort when it comes to treatment for sleep apnea.

Migraine headaches can cause throbbing in one particular area that can vary in intensity. Nausea and sensitivity to light and sound are also common symptoms. Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.
