Good Morning ~ I am sorry to hear about your problem with epilepsy and I certainly believe that you can control your problem with the use of medications. It is not unusual for caregivers to feel some amount of burnout while taking care of themselves and their loved ones. Some amount of counseling or talk therapy and medications in combination may be needed and a thorough evaluation is called for. I will certainly help with your issues if you can book an appointment with the undersigned.

Hi doc. Three years ago I got an accident and my right hand got paralyzed yet. That situation doctors named that breichal plexus and I done a nerve surgery under my shoulder. My question is there is any better treatment or hope in my present situation.

General Surgeon, Chennai
Dear brachial plexus injury that happened three years ago is not easy to treat. After reading what information you have given the first thing that comes to my mind is to do active and passive physiotherapy. At this stage get a nerve conduction study done, that will give information about the viability of nerves. Once that is know a further treatment plan can be charted. Regards

Good control of diabetes over time is the key to treating diabetic neuropathy. There is no cure for neuropathy, but keeping your blood sugar within a target range can reduce symptoms and prevent them from getting worse. To help control your diabetes, eat food that is good for you and exercise. Controlling diabetes means maintaining blood sugar levels (a1c) within the target range. This will do more than anything else to help prevent diabetic neuropathy from getting worse. Initial and ongoing treatment treatment for diabetic neuropathy depends on your symptoms and the type of neuropathy that you have. In general, treatment focuses on reducing current symptoms and preventing the condition from getting worse by keeping your blood sugar level within your target range. You can keep your blood sugar levels within the target range by taking your insulin or oral diabetes medicine as prescribed, checking your blood sugar levels, following your diet for diabetes, exercising, and seeing your doctor regularly can use vitamin e tablet and if you do not get relief you contact bacl wish you good health regards

Hi diabetics often have nerve pain. First and foremost, her diabetes needs to be brought under control. Make sure that she meets her diabetologist, in person, regularly as scheduled so that her sugar levels are monitored effectively. She may require to be on vitamin b & e supplements, as deems appropriate by her diabetologist. Fomentation with warm water is likely to help. Simultaneously, being a diabetic, she needs to streamline her diet & lifestyle and relax/ de-stress herself. She must ensure consumption of whole grain cereals, fresh milk, fruits and leafy greens. Especially, cucumber, jamun, bitter gourd, onions, garlic, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, lemon etc are beneficial in diabetes. Sweets, oily, fried food stuff are to be avoided. She should take water plentily and exercise (light) for at least 30 mins daily. Remember walking is the best and safest exercise unless she has other constraints with respect to her health. Daily yogasanas, pranayams & meditation also help keep fit from all angles. Hope this helps. All the very best.

Dear lybrate-user I think your wife has probably carpal tunnel syndrome and need detailed evaluation and imaging to confirm that diagnosis. It may need surgery. Do not neglect or procrastinate.
