On 4th April 2015 I got an Epilepsy attack in morning around 5 A.M. My wife told me that whole body got folded and after Epilepsy I was feeling vomiting issues. After 5 days I realized that some sound is coming from my mind or Ear I do not know but it is coming continuously. Till then I have contacted many Neuro /ENT .Some one says its Tinnitus and I have started medicine. Epilepsy : Encorate Chrono 500 MG two times (Regularly). For Tinnitus : Bilovas and rejunex cd. Some of my friends have told that you are not taking correct medicine for Epilepsy so you are hearing this sound as an side effect. I am not sure because all 3 Neuro doctors have prescribed me same medicine for Epilepsy. Kindly suggest me that if this can be the case or not. I am really confused and getting depressed / anxiety issues now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a complex disorder of the brain which has various psychiatric components in it. Anxiety and depression are common. Encorate chrono is no doubt a very good medication for epilepsy. But i hope you have investigated yourself in detail for the first attack of epilepsy at your age. Epilepsy due to some reversible and treatable cause should always be sought for complete cure. Sounds from your mind/ ear need evaluation because sounds in tinnitus are peculiar and can hardly be confused with anything else.

My grand mother is suffering from Parkinson but the bigger problem is that she gets fainted when she walks or sits. Is there any thing by which she can walk properly or even sit properly. Her age is about 75 years. She has problem of even getting up from bed.

FRACP, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Ludhiana
She probably has postural hypotension. Bp has to be checked in lying and standing position. If it drops by more than 20 mm then she will need medications. Alternatively she may be having multisystem atropy or drug induced bp fall on standing.

I am 25 years old. I often suffer of migrane, specially when I am hungry. And I take some pain killer medicine every time. I get relief for the moment but after some days the headache starts again. After all this I am also suffering from hair fall. Does the reason of my hair fall belong to my migrane. And what medication should take for both my problems?

Dear lybrate user, hair growth occurs in cycles. Each cycle consists of a long growing phase (anagen), a short transitional phase (catagen) and a short resting phase (telogen). At the end of the resting phase, the hair falls out (exogen) and a new hair starts growing in the follicle beginning the cycle again. Normally, about 40 hairs reach the end of their resting phase each day and fall out. When more than 100 hairs fall out per day, clinical hair loss may occur. Hair loss have many causes such as:- 1) shrinkage of the hair follicles due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 2) under-nutrition of the hair due to fungal infection on the scalp. 3) effects of radio therapy or chemotherapy. 4) nutritional deficiencies. 5) autoimmune diseases. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes surgical modes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months. You can start the following medications:- 1) take 5 drops of homeopathic sulphur 200, once in a week. 2) take 5 drops of homoeopathic selenium 200 every morning before brushing your teeth. 3) take 4 tablets from biochemic natrum mur 6x tablets, thrice daily. Just chew the tablets as those tablets are sweet in taste. 4) take homoeopathic mother tincture acid phos q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines are based on the symptoms of your diseased condition & these medicines need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.

Probably it may b due to anaemia. Do blood test. If no anaemia found rule out thyroid. Check your bmi. Your bp and also chest x ray if all reports are normal also do 2 d echo. If cardiologist advise angiography go for it. All reports all normal then anxiety should b treated.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. I would advise the following for relief - (a) Physiotherapy treatment with due emphasis on progressive muscle relaxation & strengthening exercise on a regular basis. Even TENS stimulation can help reduce pain sensation here. (b) Swedish massage to be done on both the lower back & the affected leg daily. (c) Include rice bran, carrots, beets, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, tomatoes etc in your diet liberally unless advised by your physician otherwise. (d) Take a good neuro-vitamin, once daily, containing the essential B vitamins B1, B6, B12 and R+ Alpha Lipoic Acid for one month, subject to your doctor's concurrence. (e) Apply 'Rumalaya' (Himalaya) Gel topically, twice daily, on the affected leg & back portion, followed by a heat treatment for a couple of minutes. Should the above-mentioned not help still, you can connect with me for further traction with natural medicines as would deem appropriate in her case. Simultaneously, you cab also take help of a competent chiropractor here who may help out suitably. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Yes you can get married n have children. Epilepsy is a common illness with very good treatment options. Though some genetics carry risk of transferring illness to your kids. But chances are minimal and it is not a contraindication for marriage.
