I have serious anxiety issues and my heart rate is 90-100 normally. And I can't tolerate heat due to which I sweat much more. For the past 3-4 months I am not able to sleep well. I wake up after every 2-3 hours and it's hard for me to sleep no matter how tired I am. I have done Vitamin B12 test and thyroid tests. Vitamin B12 is 121 pg/ml which is well below normal range. And my T3 and T4 are in normal range but my TSH is 6.3 mCu/ml. The symptoms are of hyperthyroidism but that's not the case I am assuming. My physique is very good and I don't have fatigue or muscle weakness. I do have 2 head injuries on my forehead since I was 12-13 years and I think these injuries have affected my brain chemistry making me more anxious and that's how all these other symptoms came. What could be the case? What can I do about it?

General Physician,
your heart is increased (tachycardia) may be due to stress ,strain, anxiety neurosis. which is a temporary in nature it seems you are basically a worried type of personality you have to change your personality and lifestyle. have regular balanced diet with lots of leafy vegetables, cereals, fruits have lean meat like chicken instead of red meat if you drink alcohol drink it in moderation. go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. things will change have lots of water by mouth..

From past 3 months my hands starts shake automatically, also head is shaking! Is this a vitamin problem? Why this happens? When. I go to doctor they suggest me to take neurobion forte 1 month but this also not working.

Hello. Would have to see how ur hand shakes and accordingly tell..Most commonly shaking of hands would he due to a tremor but there are other abnormal movements also so actually seeing you is important .. tremor could be due to plain anxiety stress or sometimes thyroid excess, Essential tremor or parkinsonism.. It depends on your Age.. Parkinson and essential tremor usually in older age.. Anxiety can occur in younger age..Also whether ur tremor is at rest or more during stretching out your hands..

The cause of shaking of hands are * muscular weakness in hands * Improper neurological functions of hand nerves * Restlessness of body * Deficiency of nutrition in body. To get relief from shaking of hands * Give a balanced diet with vegetables, cereals, milk, fruits. Sit in the sun rays for atleast 8-10 minutes daily. * Do BHRAMARI PRANAYAM twice a day. Practice SARWANGASAN and Sit with the GYAN MUDRA in Hands. These asans & mudra calm down your brain & relieve from nervousness & restlessness. * Take Rogan Badam (almond oil) and put it 1/2 tea spoon in a glass of milk and drink it in the morning. * Take 2 teaspoon of ASHVAGANDHARISTHA added in a glass of water once a day.

You seems to be suffering from migraine which has got the visual manifestation. But don’t worry homoeopathy has got very good medicine to cure migraine in a very short period of time. No pain killer can relieve better than homoeopathy. If you want homoeopathic treatment

Mr Salmon, Get a blood sugar test done both fasting and after food (2 hours after food) and HbA1c%. Diabetes can occur at any age. There are two major types of the disease, T1 & T2. T1 occurs due to total absence of Insulin secretion from beta cells of Langerhans in pancreas. These patients need only Insulin injection for life time. This condition can occur in children as well as other ages too. T2 is usually seen later age, from adult hood on wards. Aparty from heredity, overweight and inactivity are main contributors for it.

I am giving some health tips for Migraine headache •1.You can turn off light for some time •2.Apply hot or cold compresses to your head or neck. •Ice packs have a numbing effect, which may dull the sensation of pain. •Hot packs and heating pads can relax tense muscles. •3.Warm showers or baths may have a similar effect. •4.You can take Tea or coffee( but not excess) 5.Sleep well Here are some tips to encourage sound sleep. Establish regular sleep hours. •Minimize distractions. •Your eating habits can influence your migraines. •Be consistent. Eat at about the same time every day. Don't skip meals. Fasting increases the risk of migraines Avoid foods that trigger migraines This problem can be solved by meditation i can give you address of Rajyoga meditation centre near your house (this is free of cost) consult Physician/me for further management

Hello you can consult a physiotherapist personally. They will teach you few wrist strengthening exercises and perform mobilisation if needed. Meanwhile you can do cold and hot water immersion for your wrist like 3 mins in hot n one min in cold with sponge ball squeezing it in water. Make sure you start with hot water and end with hot water till temprature of both water is equal. Do use wrist band. It could be because of overuse.

Sleep please tell me from how many days you are having this problem. First of all I am giving you general guidance. Daily morning brisk walk 30 minutes, don't take a nap in afternoon, bath with a luke warm water half hour prior to sleep. Go to bed when you feel maximum sleeping. Use these measures first. If your symptoms still persist take tablet clonazep 0.25 mg half hour before sleep but for not more than 5 days.

you can go for a percutaneous baloon decompression which is done on day care basis or a surgery known as micro vascular decompression which is very major surgery but i think you should get your medications reorganised and try once more before going for surgery

If you have started it and don't have history of any disease then it may just because of sudden increased exercise to your muscles which are not habituated to it... But to cope up with it take some nutritional supplements.

Hi my son is 7 months old his control was little bit weak. My neurologist asked us to take mri. Results of mri 1. Mild thining of body and splenium of corpus callosum seen with periventriclar hyperintensities. 2. Partial empty sella is seen 3. Dialted vr spaces noticed in left inferior putamen. 4. No obivious demostrable infarct or hemorrhage orsqlin brain parenchyma. Possibility of mild form of perinatal insult is more likely neurologist said nothing bad he is ok but my pediatrician said there will be developmental delay. Which one one right. What to do?

Pediatrician, Pune
Mri reports reflect there has been some perinatal insult, there is periventricular involvement, which could cause some developmental delay, but early intervention by developmental pediatrician with physiotherapy can reduce the problems, also there is partail empty sella, it is the place where the pituitary gland is situated which controls the hormonal system of the body, the child may also require hormonal studies to rule out any hormonal deficiencies, if required hormonal supplementation, please discuss with your pediatrician.
