Usually the improvement in hypoxic brain injury is not very good. These patients stay on ventilation until they start breathing on their own properly.

One of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that plans made during the day time or earlier, do not succeed and mind finds ways or speculates or wanders to find ways to make the the plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in agitated state due to finding no way to solve mundane plans and thus leads to frustration which avoids mind to go into sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. One has to break one's self-centeredness to avoid the thoughts and frustrations entering into mind at time of sleep leading to improper sleep. The solution is to not intentionally think further about plans, but with faith surrender to the supreme and instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Drinking cow's milk in night before sleep also should help. Hope this helps,

Most of the recovery after stroke, in your case haemorrhagic stroke, occurs within first 3 months. Some patients continue to have further some recovery in first year. After that there is not much improvement. However continue physiotherapy so as to prevent contractures. If there is any tightening in the limbs, it can be managed with some anti spasticity drugs.

Sir I am a 33 yrs old male, suffering from right sided hemiplegia from the past 20 yrs. I have undergone herbal, allopathic, ayurvedic and homeopathic treatments but nothing has helped me till now. Due to this problem I cannot even walk straight, during walking I have a tendency to fall on right side, my whole right side has become stiff. Currently I am under homeopathic treatment by a classical homeopath, my ct scan reports shows a pinched nerve behind the right ear, due to which I experience noise in my right ear during swallowing. I also suffer from phobia, and panic attacks. Homeopathic drugs has given me a momentary relief in my anxiety. I also experience loss of energy. Please help me.

The news is unfortunately not encouraging: hemiplegia is not curable but it can be treated and some improvement of functions and some relief of discomfort may be pursued. You need to definitely go for physiotherapy, regularly. There are exercises to improve some functions over a period of time. In early childhood, it was possible to train the brain to use alternate neural pathways called neuroplasticity that could have been explored. Now that is not possible due to your age. An occupational therapist will also help you become a functional person so that you could do something in life. I suggest you explore swimming with an assistant because any movement that coordinates the left and right movement will open up some possibilities. Regarding the phobia and panic attacks, though not directly connected to hemiplegia, they may be a result of the frustration and other factors that have indirectly influenced you emotionally. You could explore these with a counselor and clear the fear-related reactions you have. But you must persevere and I hope you are receiving a lot of support from the family, without which life can become very difficult. Faith and hope must be cultivated and through discussion with a professional some role can be identified for you. You do have a purpose in this life, in this very condition to contribute, even successfully. Keep the search going. I like your spirit and this will not go unrewarded, if you persevere.

Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days. Bio d3 max 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Hi I am rana from Kolkata I have insomnia problem please help me I used to take ayurvedic medication thanks.
I can understand how disturbing an interuppted, inappropriate or disturbed sleep can affect your day to day life. In india it has been found 55% of patients are suffering from insomnia just because of stress, distractions and anxiety. So the best way to get rid from insomnia is to reduce the stress level. A physiotherapist can help you to give you the ways to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full sleep. You can continue taking ayurvedic medicines also. If required consult some neurologist/neuropyschiatric and start taking medicine if it is due to some neurological discorder. And consult nearby physio who can make a perfect routine and daily life styl chart to make you relax so that you get an appropriate sleep. Please follow some points that will help you in such condition along with medical treatment: 1) use of ice packs over your eyes or frontal area for some time to give relaxation. 2) massage your head especially forehead area using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body 3) regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. 4) avoid fasting - eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings 5) make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. 6) before sleeping time do some relaxation exercises. - sit on chair with both the hands placed on the pillow placed over thighs. - deep inhale from your nose, mouth should be closed. - hold your breath for the count of 5. - exhale completely from mouth making a loud sound. Continue to do this exercise for 10 times. Before going to bed make a habit of doing this daily. Modified technique of same exercise is while inhaling extend your arms, hold for 5 count and then exhale making your arms back in the rest position. 7) room modification while sleep - make sure room should be dark with no noise. Avoid sleeping immediately after dinner or food. Take a walk for 15 min and then come back, bed should be not too soft not too hard. 8) it is recommended to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. It is also a very good habit to start and finish your day by drinking a good glass of purifying water. 9) exerices like aerobics (running) can be done to make your muscles active. Many other ways are there in order to maintain your life stress free and active so that you can continue to sleep on time and it does affect your life. For more help or instructions please consult. Good luck and get well soon.

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. To reduce the frequency and duration take tablet beta cap plus once daily night time for 3 months. If you want to consult you can go to a nearby physician.
