I'm 26 years old male, and I have migraine problem since last 8 years, could you please suggest the solution to get rid of this?

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.

Facts about Dementia

What is dementia? Dementia is a term used to describe various different brain disorders that have in common a loss of brain function that is usually progressive and eventually severe. There are over 100 different types of dementia. The most common are Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies. Symptoms of dementia include loss of memory, confusion and problems with speech and understanding.
Most forms of dementia cannot be cured. There are some drugs available that appear to alleviate some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in some people.
How dementia progresses?

All types of dementia are progressive illnesses. This means that the structure and chemistry of the brain become increasingly damaged over time. The person's ability to remember, understand, communicate and reason will gradually decline.
Genetic factors are responsible for the disease in only a very small number of families. There is no single gene for Alzheimer's disease and inherited factors alone do not explain why some people develop it while others do not.
The Alzheimer's Society estimates that there are currently over 700,000 people in the UK with dementia.

Researchers believe that many factors, including age, genetic background and lifestyle, can lead to the onset of the disease. The prevalence of dementia in people with learning difficulties is higher than in the general population.

What is dementia?
The term 'dementia' is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, stroke and many other rarer conditions. Symptoms of dementia include loss of memory, confusion and problems with speech and understanding.Different areas of the brain are responsible for different skills and abilities. The changes in behaviour, memory and thought in people with Alzheimer's disease may be a direct result of the way the disease has affected their brain.See also information sheet
There are several diseases and conditions that cause dementia.See also information sheet
 

Causes of dementia include:
Alzheimer's diseaseThis is the most common cause of dementia. During the course of the disease, the chemistry and structure of the brain changes, leading to the death of brain cells. Information sheet.

Vascular diseaseIf the oxygen supply to the brain fails, brain cells may die. The symptoms of vascular dementia can occur either suddenly, following a stroke, or over time, through a series of small strokes. Information sheet
Dementia with Lewy bodiesThis form of dementia gets its name from tiny spherical structures that develop inside nerve cells. Their presence in the brain leads to the degeneration of brain tissue. Memory, concentration and language skills are affected. Information sheet

Am suffering from migraine. I have eaten many pain killers but have not got any relief. What should I do now?

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), PGDEMS, DNHE, DYA
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Hello Lybrate user, Pain killers is not the solution for Migraine always. Check what is the triggering factor of your problem and try to avoid it. 1. Check with stress is causing migraine then you will have to manage your lifestyle. 2. Long term Acidity can also be a cause for migraine so you have to take care of it using ayurvedic medicines for best results. 3. Increase in eye problem i.e. check whether you eye no. has increased if you have specks. 4. Avoid oily, spicy and salty food in your diet. Avoid heavy to digest items like nonveg, bread, pizza etc. 5. Drink less tea if you drink it too much. 6. In you food add 1/2 tsp of ghee like in on your roti or in rice. 7. Do not consume alcohol/ carbonated drinks as they tend to increase migraine in long run. 8. Add amount of almonds, whole grain seeds, fruits n vegetables in diet. Stay hydrated.  9. Due to excess anger and stress migraine aggravates in many patient.  10. Don't stay awake late night or sleep in day time as both increase stress in body. 11. Do you have gas n constipation problem if yes that should be treated first. Ayurvedic treatment is very effective in this problem get in touch with me on Lybrate for further guidance.

My dad is parkinson patient and recently was in tube feeding and yesterday the tube was removed and he can eat from mouth while eating from mouth he should not cough else the food will go to his lungs to avoid this neurologist suggested us for a speech therapist is there any medicine or execersise to swallow his food without coughing please suggest.

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS

There are no medication which can improve swallowing. Swallowing excercises can help in improving swallow to some extent. If improvement is inadequate, its better to got for peg insertion, in which a minor surgery will be done and feeds can be given directly into stomach.

Hi, I am Dr. Saurabh gupta from max hospital and I would like to answer your query. Numbness with burning sensation in feet suggests neuropathy. The reason may be due to defeciency od nutrients or due to vascular compromise or due to any pressure effect. 1. So you can take multi vitamin supplements consisting of pyridoxine, methyl cobalamine with pregabalin. This supplements will help you in the prevention of symptoms. 2. Along with these you need to have nutritious diet consisting of fruits and green leafy vegetables and more fluids 3. Daily out door exercises (150 min per week). Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

I am unable to write with my hand from 3 months. If I try to write now it start shaking. Is there any solution for this problem.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
The problem is of recent onset. At this age neuronal disease is unlikely. Hence it may be anxiety or substance use. Stop alcohol if you are abusing. If you have other features of anxiety like dry mouth and throat, excessive sweating, fast heart beat, difficulty breathing, dizziness along with inability to relax and excessive worries then consult a psychiatrist. Mri brain will be helpful to rule out any underlying pathology in brain. Treatment is possible and you will be alright. All the best.

MPT, BPT

Dear , yes your disease is called atrophy or more specifically sacropenia. This is mainly seen in elderly after the age of 50. To combat this it is better to go in for exercises esp resistive exercises. This will help in building up the present muscles and helping prevent further loss. If you require anymore clarifications please feel free to consult me. Preethi mathew (mpt, maiap) neuro-physiotherapist

Hello Madhu You already know the trigger factors so it's best to avoid all those things which lead to headache. You can take homeopathic treatment to control the frequency and intensity of your attacks and over a period of time your allopathic medicine can be stopped.
