Sleep is the most essential part of our lives because it is the time when our body gets rejuvenated and recharged. However, due to numerous reasons, quite a few individuals fail to achieve proper sleep or any sleep at all. This condition in which a person is unable to sleep at night can be termed as insomnia.
Causes of insomnia
There can be varied reasons for different people that can cause insomnia.
- Unhealthy lifestyle i.e. improper sleep cycle, improper food habits, untimely naps, substance abuse etc.
- Medical conditions like sinus allergies, gastrointestinal problems, endocrine problems, arthritis, asthma, neurological condition like Parkinson’s disease, chronic back pain etc.
- Psychological conditions like depression and anxiety
- Certain medications aimed to cure other health problems
In case of the treatable medical reasons, insomnia is gone once the problem is treated. However, for people who have no idea as to why they suffer from insomnia, here are certain tips that can help in fighting it.
Lifestyle changes to cure insomnia
Starting with a significant lifestyle change can be a great way to change one’s sleep cycles and get a good night’s sleep.
- Maintain a proper and healthy diet, with more fruits and vegetables and less carbs and fat.
- Try to sleep and wake up at the same time everyday (despite the fact that you may not feel sleepy). This will train the body and regulate the body clock.
- Avoid afternoon naps or any short naps during the day.
- Exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.
- Avoid caffeine as it has contains properties that keeps a person up for long hours.
- Avoid intake of alcohol and nicotine. Although alcohol is associated with fun and partying, it is actually a depressant and causes improper sleep.
- Avoid any meal right before bed time.
Tips that can help
- Take a good, warm shower right before sleep.
- Ask your partner to give you a nice massage before bedtime.
- Restrict bed activities to sleep and sex only, nothing more.
- Make a really comfortable and inviting sleep environment.
- Try and get rid of all your worries before going to bed.
- Reduce stress using a number of stress reduction therapies like meditation, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation techniques, etc.
Apart from the lifestyle changes and the tips that will help you gain a better sleep, there is another therapy, which may be useful. It is called the cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy can give essential knowledge about sleep and help achieve normal sleep routines. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
I had been suffering from trigeminal neuralgia since july 2012 and had been treated with oxcarbazepine (2 x 150 mg a day). My periods of less pain or near-remission increased and the frequency of attacks decreased over time. Over the last 4 months I have not had a single episode of pain and I have not been taking any medicines for tn for 3 months. There has been no pain at all. Is it correct to assume that I am now free of the ailment.

Parkinson’s disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with parkinson’s. There is no cure for parkinson’s, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.
The 4 most common signs of parkinson’s are:
• tremors or shaking when at rest
• muscle stiffness
• slowed movement or problems starting movement
• problems with balance and movement
As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.
When you start to show signs of this disease, your doctor may order anti parkinsonian medicines or may also suggest some physical therapy to help manage your signs. The physical therapist can help you learn exercises, prescribed by a physiatrist, that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your doctor to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat parkinson’s disease, but they can be managed well.
You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.
Things you can do to manage your signs
• walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart. Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
• use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
• if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to
Side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
• place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
• stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or
When using the bathroom
• install grab bars on the walls, beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.
• use a shower chair inside the shower.
• install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
• shave with an electric razor.
• wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
• wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.
When eating or drinking
• use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
• use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
Work closely with your health care team to manage your signs of parkinson’s disease.
