My mother 64 years is suffering from hereditary parkinson having unbalanced body, hand shaking, absent mindedness, loss of memory, difficulty in speech, excessive urination during night, lost control over urine and stool, no feeling of pain in lower legs and mostly winters are the most difficult times. So kindly suggest the remedy for parkinson

She can benefit from some anti-parkinson medication for most of her symptoms. It appears her disease is progressing. Consult a Neurologist for more options. He may suggest other options like Deep Brain Stimulation for better quality of life. It may cost Rs. 6lakhs to 8lakhs for this procedure in Private Hospitals. Its like a pacemaker in the Brain. He may liaise with a Neurosurgeon for this procedure.

Sir, either you may have cervical spondylitis which is impinging your nerve and you are having problem regarding your finger or you may be suffering from a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome which also gives the same symptoms as that of spondylitis. In order to differentiate if you are having pain in and around your neck along with your symptoms then it could be spondylitis. If there is problem only with your thumb and index finger ie mostly gettig numb then it could be carpal tunnel syndrome.

I constantly have headaches accompanied by throbbing sensation in my head, especially in the morning. Sometimes the headache is on the left side of the brain, sometimes in the temple, accompanied by constant throbbing. At that moment, I feel like hitting myself in the head as I feel a little relief by doing this. Also, If I am exposed to the sunlight or hear loud music/noises, then also I get headaches. I consulted a doctor and he treated me with Migraine. The course ended for a month, but, the headache still keeps occurring. Further, I would like to conclude, that there are days when I tried not to eat any painkillers and face the​ pain, then, usually by night, I would have vomited twice or thrice before the headache subdues. What should I​ do?

Migraine is a relapsing kind of headache. The treatment of migraine is mainly done for relief from acute headache attacks and later treatments to prevent future relapses. Treatment of factors which tend to cause relapses is also important. There is no drug of choice or as such a best medicine for migraine. Treatment has to be individualised after taking into consideration patient factors and the history of migraine in the patient. For long term relief and prevention of relapses, consult a headache specialist an psychiatrist for a complete evaluation and treatmnet.

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.

It is important that you rule out infection as the cause of pain. Nerve pain is unlikely to present like this. Why are you on prednisolone? are you suffering from arthritis? please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Manoj kumar khemani

My sister' s right hand shivers when she does any kind of work. It has also become weaker. The problem has emerged since last one year or so. Her age is 45+ years. Regular medication also doesn' t help. Please suggest any other treatment or medicines for curing or controlling this problem. I think it is a case of essential tremor, but some docs say its parkinson' s disease. Does parkinson' s disease afflict people before 50 years. Please help with your expertise.

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If it is benign essential tremors as neurologiosts have diagnozed, then you may have to follow up the treatment with them regularly. If there is no rigidity, slowness in walking or emotional nonreactivity then think in terms of parkinson' s disease. Otherwise consult the necessary doctor regularly.

Seizure attack is due to abnormal electrical activity in brain, which can produce motor, sensory, emotional or behavioral problems depending on the area of the brain in which the electrical activity occurs. Panic attack is sudden severe form of extreme anxiety, characterized by feelings of doom, going crazy, dying, something terrible going to happen, pounding heart, sweating, tremors and so on.

I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.

Epilepsy - How Seizures Affect It?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Rajkot
Epilepsy - How Seizures Affect It?

Epilepsy is a disorder of the central nervous system, thus it is basically a neurological disorder. In this the nerve cell activity of the brain is disrupted and causes seizures along with episodes of unusual behavior along with the loss of consciousness. The symptoms of the seizure can vary and some people with epilepsy just stare blankly for few seconds when a seizure takes place, while some twitch their arms and legs repeatedly.

Symptoms of Epilepsy:
As epilepsy is caused by the abnormal activities in the brain cells, seizures affect the processes with which the brain coordinates. Some signs and symptoms are:

  1. Staring blankly
  2. Confusion which is temporary
  3. Uncontrolled jerking movements of the legs and arms
  4. Loss of awareness and consciousness
  5. Psychic symptoms

Mostly the symptoms vary depending on the type of the seizure. The seizures are further classified into focal and generalized depending on which part of the brain shows abnormal activity.

Focal seizures
When seizures are due to the abnormal activity of the cells in just one area then it is known as focal seizures. These seizures are of two types:

  1. Simple partial seizures or the focal seizures without loss of consciousness. These seizures basically alter the emotions and the things like change in smell, look, sound and taste. These also result in the involuntary jerking of the body like the legs and arms, with spontaneous sensory symptoms like the tingling and flashing of the lights.
  2. Complex partial seizures or the focal dyscognitive seizures. These seizures have a loss of awareness and consciousness. One might just stare blankly into space in this seizure and performs repetitive activities like swallowing, chewing, walking in circles and chewing.

Generalized seizures
There are six types of generalized seizures. These are:

  1. Absence seizures, also known as petit mal seizures, are commonly seen in children and are characterized by subtle body movements like lip smacking and eye blinking and staring blankly into space. These also cause loss of consciousness.
  2. Tonic seizures lead to stiffening of the muscles. These affect the muscles of the legs and arms and also cause to fall to the ground.
  3. Atonic seizures are also called as drop seizures. These cause loss of control in the muscles, thereby leading to collapse or fall.
  4. Clonic seizures are the rhythmic and jerking muscle movements. These affect the arms, face and neck.
  5. Myoclonic seizures appear as twitches in the arms and legs.
  6. Tonic-clonic seizures also known as grand mal seizures are very dramatic and lead to body stiffening, abrupt loss of consciousness, shaking and loss of bladder control and tongue biting. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.
