Time is the best healer from Bell’s palsy. More is the damage caused to facial nerve before starting treatment, more is the time needed for recovery. All other therapies are supportive and not curative. Try consulting Physiotherapiest and doing exercises on your own at home. It’s going to take time. Don’t be restless.

I am suffering from migraine so I used to take crocin twice or thrice in a week since last 5-6 years. And now I am suffering from stomach pains as well as other problems. Whenever I eat something the pain starts, the doctor has prescribed me rabic dsr and florawell but no improvement is there. Also he has recommended me sibelium 10 mg for migraine but it is making me depressed and tired. Need help. What medicines should I take?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Might be because of painkillers. You have gastritis or a gastric ulcer. Continue rabic dsr once daily on empty stomach for 2 weeks. Avoid any over the counter pain killers. Crocin is safe. Start naprox 500mg twice daily for 3 to 4 days during migraine attack. Coffee works wonders in migraine but again can lead to gastritis.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

Actually I am having a migraine problem. I cannot even stand properly because I faint in 2-3 minutes. What to do? please reply as soon as possible.

Hello, 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 kindly consult Physician for further management

I used masturbate excessively but now I have stopped it completely but now I am suffering from migraine type headaches.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Zirakpur
Excessive masturbation or any other cause of semen loss is always bad for health rather ruining. I write it often but young people do not understand and later flock to get herbal replenishment of semen. I again say that pl remain constrained and eat good VRUSHYA food which will enhance semen quality and quantity. If already suffering pl see that VRUSHYA herbal combos are best bet and minimum 40 days course is indicated in ayurveda for normal recovery. If interested please consult privately on Lybrate chat.

Respected Sir, I am Sudip Goswami from West Bengal. My father suffering with Parkinson's disease from last 3 years. We had visited several hospital india including NIMHANS, AOPLLO (Chennai, Bangur (W. B) Now please suggest me the way to recover from this situation. Also suggest me the best treatment for P. D in india.

Dear friend, unfortunate to know your father suffering from parkinson's disease. It is a disease of brain in which brain cells in particular area of brain degenerate spontaneously so the patient develop problems in body movement like tremor, shaking of limbs and walking difficulty and movement become slow and body became stiff. There is no treatment to permanently cure the disease or stop the disease till now. But patients symptoms can be controlled by medication for a significant years. But he will be symptom free as long as he uses the medication, when he stops the medicine symptoms will reappear. Some centers doing stem cell therapy for parkinson's disease, but it is in experimental stage. Depending on patient's response to symptomatic therapy, a brain surgery is done called bds in which patient may get symptomatic relief without medication for many years. But it is available in selected centres, costly, helpful in some specific parkinson patients.

I stammer because of head injuries, tensions, thinking too much, too many thoughts, past incidents, hurrying and depression.

Try to diagnose yourself, if stammering is every time then it is related to some physical problem but if you find it is less when you are comfort with family and friend then it is psychological. Accordingly go for therapy.
