My father is not able to feel tissue of his palm, first it was with right hand but now he is having problem with left hand as well. When he close his fist and open, his two fingers don't open and has to do that manually to open his palm again. The sense of his both limbs are not responding as it should be. Please suggest us what we can do. Problem is increasing day by day.

It needs a thorough medical examination. So please take your father to a neurologist or neuro-physician. Some tests may be required which the doctor will recommend. You can also try Homeopathy which can help the nervous system to work effectively and help in the overall well being. A detailed case history is required to study and select constitutional remedy. You can contact me with the reports.

Its a progressive degenerative disease. If it is the correct diagnoses for your father then he can maintain the remaining strength and slow down the regression by doing maintainence therapy under any good occupational therapist. If required they will provide splints to support the functional independence.

Brain Tumors - How Radiosurgery Can Help?

MD, MBBS

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.

Brain Tumors - Signs and Symptoms Not to Ignore!

Brain Tumors - Signs and Symptoms Not to Ignore!

There is no trustworthy evidence regarding what causes brain tumors, but there are a few risk factors that have been substantiated through research. Children and young people who receive radiation around the head are susceptible to developing tumors in the brain once they grow up. Also, people with a certain kind of rare genetic condition like neurofibromatosis may develop a brain tumor though such cases are very few in number. Age is also an important factor as people aged over 65 years are diagnosed with brain tumors at quadruple times higher than children and younger people.

Types of Brain Tumours-

A primary brain tumor originates in the brain, and they may or may not be cancerous. Some tumors can be benign, which do not spread in the surrounding tissues and are not very malicious. However, that does not signify that they will not cause any harm over time. Sometimes these tumors can be severe and cause a threat to the life of the sufferer. The National Cancer Institute reports that approximately there were 23, 380 fresh cases of brain tumors in 2014.

Identifying the Symptoms of Brain Tumors...

The symptoms of the brain tumor are dependent on various factors such as the size, type as well as the exact location of the tumor. These symptoms are triggered when any tumor is pressed or clashed against a nerve or disturbs a part of the brain. Symptoms are also felt when any tumor particle blocks the fluid flowing around the brain or when there is a swelling in the brain owing to the build-up of fluid.

Common symptoms include- headaches that get worse in the morning, nausea along with vomiting, an alteration in the speech, hearing and imbalances in walking and movement, mood swings, change in personality and ability to concentrate or remember things and seizures or convulsions.

Treatment for Brain Tumor-

Surgery is normally the most usual treatment for brain tumors, and the patient is given anaesthesia, and the scalp is shaved before the surgery. Then, craniotomy is performed to open the skull, and the surgeon removes a bone piece out of the skull. Then the tumor is removed as much as possible. The bone is then restored back, and the incision on the scalp is closed. Sometimes surgery is not viable in case the tumor has developed in the brain stem or some other complex parts.

Neurosurgeons can surgically remove some tumors completely (called resection or complete removal). If the tumor is near sensitive areas of the brain, neurosurgeons will only be able to remove part of it (called partial removal). Even partial removals can relieve symptoms and facilitate or increase the effectiveness of other treatments.

The role of surgery in treating brain tumors

Surgery can provide:

  1. The complete removal of some brain tumors
  2. A sample to enable doctors to diagnosis the tumor and recommend the most appropriate treatment
  3. Better quality of life:
  4. Reduced symptoms and improved ability to function (e.g., to think, speak or see better)
  5. Less pressure within the skull from the tumor
  6. A longer life

In case you or any of your near ones is affected with brain tumor, you should visit the doctor to know the possible treatments other than surgery and other important questions related to brain tumor.

Hopefully this one use may not do any harm. But it looks like you have learned a lesson and will no longer use this substance. There are many controversial claims about marijuana, and we need to wait until the dust settles to finally know the entire truth. The medicinal uses have been proven to a large extent and the use of this substance must be limited to that prescription only. Until then please do not use it at all. The sensation of numbness and perception of reduction in touch sensation may be connected but if you do not indulge in marijuana, it should disappear without much ado. I hope you are one who exercises regularly anyway because that is always good for your health and circulation. So don't worry too much and only if this sensory deprivation persists you will need to meet a doctor.

Homeopath, Bareilly
Hemiplegia is the term used to denote a condition wherein one half of the body gets completely paralysed. An injury to either side of the brain can cause hemiplegia on that particular side, leaving it completely paralysed. A stroke can also result in this condition. Other causes of hemiplegia include health conditions like diabetes, inflammation of the blood vessels, migraine syndrome, etc. A person suffering from hemiplegia has difficulty in walking and loses balance as he tries to walk. It can cause difficulty in swallowing, vision and speech problems, numbness in one half of the body, loss of bladder and bowel control, etc. The memory may become poor and the affected person suffers from depression. Homeopathic treatment for hemiplegia uses natural medicines that are very beneficial in treating the symptoms in the patient. These remedies do not cause any side-effects and are safe for long term use. there are about hundreds of remedy for hemiplagia. detailed history taking followed by video conferencing will help me to select a remedy for you...

Neurologist,
My hands are vibrating little bit
When I have to carry any thing Carefully
For ex. When I serve tea or coffee.
Hi, Seems like your complaining about having tremors in your hands- which are postural-- that is, they happen when your carrying/ holding something (when your hands are to be held against gravity). Such type of tremors can be a normal occurring or physiological in nature- brought about by fatigue, nervousness, anxiety or any strong emotion. Even excess caffeine consumption can cause it. Sometimes such tremors could indicate underlying thyroid function abnormality. If your 19 years old and otherwise healthy-- can just observe for now. Best,

You appear to suffer from degenerative {premature aging} damage to your spine, as in your knees and peripheral neuropathy - need investigations to establish diagnosis- these problems are chronic and progressive. Conventional medicine does not usually offer any definitive arrest or reversal of such ailments. However, for good results I recommend holistic medicine therapy to you.
