My son is having eplyees fits since 10 years long he is now 18 years old he is taking medicine i. E zeptol cr 300, zeptol cr 400 and lamez 50 daily fit symptoms only while sleeping now fit is coming rarely how much time he will take medicine.

Neurosurgeon,
If your son still has seizures during sleep, the medication needs to be changed, so that he is seizure-free. Once the patient is seizure-free on adequate medications for more than 3-5 years, consideration as to the reduction and stoppage of medicines can be contemplated.

I am a 30 year old woman and have migraine for last 7 year. Before six years back I took treatment but some reason I leave it in middle. But again I have frequently headache for last 4 months. What should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
In case of acute pain take tablet brufen twice daily with tablet rantac empty stomach for 3 days. If symptoms persist take tablet rizatriptan sos only once in 24 hrs period not more than that. Take tablet beta cap plus once daily night time for 3 months. Avoid precipitating factors like tension, stress, direct sunlight exposure, excessive work load, literally anything can precipitate migraine.

Hi, I have not heard of primrose oil helping inn migraine attacks unless it is related to menopause. Consult a physician for the right analgesic or a homoeo doc for permanent eradication of the migraine.

I have migraine and disk problem and I am underweight, what food habits should I select to be healthy.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day. For Disc problem: If it's slip disc, then will have to opt for physiotherapy and yoga. For gaining weight: The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points ( if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day.Protein shakes will help you to gain muscle mass, particularly if you're working out. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. This is where protein shakes and bars really come in handy. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 1month.

My father is 76 years old. Has a history of seizure, hypertension. He is suffering from low sodium and potassium since 8 Aug 15. And since then he's been in and out of hospital. We are consulting a neurologist from a reputed hospital but his condition isnt any better in all these days. Pls suggest who should we meet for further advice. Thanks.

MBBS,J.R. Neurology
General Physician,
Dyselectrolytemia is the cause of his seizures. Serum sodium and potassium have very small normal ranges and its crucial to maintain both. It does take time for it to normalize at his age so you should have patience. Proper fluid intake and diet is a must. He should be screened for any endocrinological etiology. Neurology consultation is mandatory. Take care.

Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also.

My hands shake usually what to do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Shaking of hands may be due to many causes like due to some neurological problem, alcohol withdrawal state due excessive alcohol use when suddenly you stop consuming or anxiety. At this young age of 23 years alcohol or anxiety should be the main cause. I need further information that since how long you are having this problem, whether you consume alcohol or not, any does any body in your family is having the same problem etc to reach a probable diagnosis.

My father has been suffering from Parkinson's disease since 2007. Now it has reached a maximum severe condition. He has been taking levodopa supplement (Syndopa (levodopa carbidopa: 250 25) which has been wearing off and causing side effects like Involuntary movement, occasional dementia and he is becoming weaker day by day. We have consulted numbers of doctor including Neurologist, Medicine specialist and we could not find a better alternative of the drugs. We used Tridopa 100 (another levodopa supplement) but the dosage is not working for my father. What I an interested to know if there is any better treatment of this disease? His health is deteriorating day by day. Please let me know.

There are various kinds of drugs for Parkinsonism. Basically if one group of medicine don't work we try different. I am sure your doctor must have tried all options. Your father also needs anti dementia medicine. It should be started at the earliest as it can only prevent deterioration and cannot reverse the dementia. Keep your father in a room where he gets multiple stimulations from environment like light, air, sound and keeps in constant touch with what is happening around . This will reduce confusion of dementia

To prevent stroke in future, management of risk factors of stoke should be done. The reversible risk factors of stroke are ? Being overweight or obese ? Physical inactivity ? Heavy or binge drinking ? Use of illicit drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamines ? High blood pressure ? Cigarette smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. ? High cholesterol. ? Diabetes. ? Obstructive sleep apnea ? a sleep disorder in which the oxygen level intermittently drops during the night. ? Cardiovascular disease, including heart failure, heart defects, heart infection or abnormal heart rhythm. Management of above conditions and lifestyle modification can reduce the risk of stoke significantly.

Hi, it would not be appropriate to prescribe medicines with out knowing the exact cause behind your issues. First and foremost, I would advise you to consult a neuro physician at the earliest. He/ she shall be able to clinically examine you and diagnose the problem appropriately. In the meantime, however, you should keep up your diet and lifestyle with due room for regular exercise/ walking, relaxation and de-stressing. Focus on more of leafy greens, fresh fruits et al and stay hydrated. It is advisable to restrict intake of tea, coffee, sweets, salt, greasy, oily and fatty foods including fast foods. Alcohol and smoking, if any, be best avoided too.

The tryptomer is currently relieving your migraines by acting as a muscle relaxant for the neck muscles and the muscles at the back of your head. You will be able to stop the medication when you seek the exact nature of the headache and incorporate life style changes along with the correct medical treatment.

General Physician,
Unless you make yourself relax you can't get relieved from anxiety. Make yourself busy in some kind of work activity. Be joyful and enjoy life. Don't think i'm patient and what will happen now. Follow some stress reliving yoga. And you will be alright.
