My son is 8 yrs old suffering from thumb lock. Allopathy doctor suggested as conginental disease and advised for surgery (trigger thumb release). Is there an alternate to surgery?

Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I think congenital trigger thumb is best release surgically at the age of 8 years, in younger age you have options like splints, passive stretching, but at 8 yrs, it is best managed surgically. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi

I am suffering from epilepsy from last 15 and taking medication for the same, as I didn't had any attack since from last 3 years so I was been advised to reduce one pill i. E. Epilan immediately after reducing the pill I had an attack kindly advice what to do now?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Hyderabad
If you are getting repeated seizure attack on reducing the pills, it suggests that you may need this medication for few more days. If want to reduce the dose reduce it very slowly gradually tappering of the dose of medicine. Get an eeg done to see whether it showing some epipesy activity or not. If repeat eeg shows abnormal discharges you will definitely need this medicine for more time period.

I have an migraine problem from at lest 5 years what should I do to solve this problem.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Hyderabad
Migraine attacks usually occurs of not taking food or fasting for long time, lack of sleep, working on sun light, dust pollution, during travel, like so many other precipitating factors. Avoid all these precipitating factors as much as possible. Take anti migraine prophylaxis medicines at least for 4 months to bring down the frequency of the migraine attacks and its severity.

I have migraine since I was 16 years old. Whenever I'm stressed, the migraine comes back even if I take medicines. How can I stop getting stressed?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
You can never stop stress from occurring. Stress like air is omnipresent around you. All you have to learn is manage stress and learn how to relax in times of stress. It is an art that you have to learn with practice. You may start with trying some relaxation exercises daily. Begin with simple breathing exercises for 20 minutes daily. Yoga and meditation are equally good options. Avoid artificial stressors like smoking, alcohol etc. Eat healthy, exercise daily, stay healthy. If migraine still occurs you may need assistance with medications. Consult me online if you so wish.

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.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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.

Problem with my leg is it is just not able to take a load on it. So while wailking, my walk goes left right. I am not able to walk striaght. Neurologist asked me to do mri. Result showed this is due to multiple sclerosis (m. S.) doctor said there is no cure for it. Just we can avoid it to spread it further. Apart from this I am facing weakness at times. Once after I have my meals I feel better. Also not able to stand for a longer period. I had also gone for a blood check which showed vitamin d3 is less than 8 where it has to me more than 30. Please revert thank you.

You have a serious problem. This illness ms is generally relapsing and remitting. Symptoms comes and go away. Unpredictable. Cause is not exactly known. But autoimmunity is at fault. Allergy of nerve covering of nerves of brain. I strongly advise you to only take treatment from a neurologist, better he be the same doctor. Don't change doctors. If he know your case from beginning he will be better efficiently manage, and will be able to help you better. Trust him, your illness is such that you have to be very patient and cool.

4 simple ways to manage diabetic peripheral neuropathy (dpn)

You're probably familiar with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (dpn), which is nerve damage that?s caused by chronic high blood sugar. Dpn tends to be the most common complication of diabetes. Some of its symptoms include a tingling or burning sensation, difficulty walking, and numbness, especially in your feet and toes. If left untreated, dpn can eventually lead to amputation.
while dpn seems to be a growing problem within the african-american community, here are four ways to keep your dpn under control.

1. Don?t smoke.
ever notice how ?don?t smoke? is always somewhere on these types of lists? well, there?s a good reason for it. When you smoke, your arteries narrow and harden, reducing the amount of blood flow to your legs and feet, which makes it more difficult for wounds to heal.
2. Keep your blood sugar levels in check.
if you?re a diabetic, then you already know how important it is to monitor your blood sugar levels. When you have dpn, inconsistent blood sugar levels put you at risk for nerve damage, which can ultimately lead to amputation.
3. Take good care of your feet.
when you have dpn, it?s a definite must that you thoroughly wash and dry your feet on a daily basis. Also, always make sure that your shoes are well-fitted and that your socks are clean and dry. Be sure to trim your toenails straight across ? or have them trimmed by a professional. Lastly, stay away from any antiseptic products and sharp tools, including nail files, as they may cause injury and further damage.
4. Communicate with your doctor.
inspect your feet regularly. If you notice anything unusual, such as a foot injury that?s taking longer to heal than normal, inform your doctor right away! ask me privately here
