My head pains very badly because of working in front of pc so whatshould I do to cure it.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
My head pains very badly because of working in front of pc so whatshould I do to cure it.
It is due to computer vision syndrome follow the advice given below. 1. Take a break-use 20-20 rule, take a break for 20 second after working in computer for 20 minutes and look at some thing 20 feet away. 2. Blink frequently to prevent dryness of eyes 3. Use of computer glass- it optimises your eye sight when you are looking at digital screen and helps to decrease glare 4. Keep your monitor bright- this decreases flicker 5. Use proper lighting like incandescent light 6. Check position of monitor- monitor should be placed 4-5inches below eye level and 20-28 inches from eyes 7. Adjust, screen resolution 8. Minimise glare- clean monitor regularly to remove dust and place an anti glare screen 9. Try massage or eye cupping- massaging the area around the eye will relax eye muscle. Rub your hands together to create friction and warmth, then gently cup your palm over the closed eye and rest them 10. Take multivitamin tablet containing vitamin a, c, e, b complex, zinc and antioxidant (one capsule of revital daily after breakfast) 11. Go for yearly eye examination.

Dear Lybrate User, *Drink warm water. *Avoid more spicy, maida related, dry, junk foods. *While suffering from gas and indigestion due to spicy or fatty food, having fennel seeds can help cure your problem. The oil contained in fennel seeds reduces nausea and controls flatulence. Dry, roast and grind fennel seeds to make a powder. Take half teaspoon of this powder twice a day along with water. You will see some results.

Night time sleeping is very needful for proper body functioning Take sleep in day time 1/2 of night jagaran time before eating food Eat food only when you have good appetite in day time after 1/2 sleeping Drinks only milk or light nashta like upama or sheera is useful not other food in morning time Drink cow milk in day time to avoid jagaran effects on body.

I’m sorry you are having this problem. Let’s see if there is anything we can do to help the situation I personally feel you require insulin to control your blood sugar levels. You need to really take control of the blood sugar levels since very high blood sugar levels will leave you tired and weak. Moreover, it can lead to a large number of complications Insulin is the medication of choice in your case. I hope you are having no inhibitions regarding using insulin.In case you have some reservations, please do talk to your doctor or diabetes educator who can clear your doubts.

Hello, First get your blood pressure checked, make a chart. Let me know about the readings, will give you medication accordingly. Some primary headaches can be triggered by lifestyle factors, including: Alcohol, particularly red wine Certain foods, such as processed meats that contain nitrates Changes in sleep or lack of sleep Poor posture Skipped meals Stress insufficient sleep or rest Overexertion Nutritional deficiencies A secondary headache is a symptom of a disease that can activate the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. Any number of conditions — varying greatly in severity — may cause secondary headaches. Medication: Meantime, can start with homoeopathic medicine - Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ after every 2 hours.
