If aspirin not taken by paralysis stroke patients for 2 days due to root canal. Is their any problem in this.

Neurosurgeon, Udaipur
Aspirin is an antiplatelet drug. The effect of Aspirin usually last about 5 days. So not taking aspirin for two days is usually does not affect platelet funtioning. In fact before any surgical intervention the aspirin is stopped for dear of bleeding for about one day before to two to three days after surgery is recommended (depends on the nature of surgery.) Consult your surgeon for exact duration.

I had temporal lobe epilepsy in my childhood. I had seizure in age 5. I took tegrital for 3 years. I then didn't have seizure. Does that mean that my epilepsy is cured?

Neurologist, Vijayawada
If your seizure free for 3 years it’s good. As you age your brain also develops. Many a times seizures disappear.In some patients they may recur in adolescence. If you are free till now you might not get any seizures.

Pinched Nerve (Compressed Nerve) - How Can It Be Managed?

Nerve compression is a condition caused by direct pressure on a nerve. It occurs when a nerve is squeezed or compacted. It is also known as compression neuropathy or entrapment neuropathy.

It typically occurs at a single location. Nerves in the torso, limbs, and extremities may be affected. Common symptoms include pain, numbness, and muscle weakness at the site of the nerve.

Nerve compression syndrome is also known as:

  1. nerve entrapment syndrome
  2. compression neuropathy
  3. entrapment neuropathy
  4. trapped nerve

Types

Mentioned below are few of the most common types of nerve compression syndromes:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Suprascapular nerve compression syndrome
  • Guyon’s canal syndrome
  • Meralgia paresthetica
  • Radial nerve compression syndrome

Causes

  1. Prolonged or repeated external force, such as sitting with one's arm over the back of a chair (radial nerve), frequently resting one's elbows on a table (ulnar nerve), or an ill-fitting cast or brace on the leg (peroneal nerve).
  2. Accidents such as sprains, fractures, and broken bones can also cause nerve compression syndrome
  3. Diabetes
  4. Autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis
  5. Thyroid dysfunction
  6. High blood pressure
  7. Tumors and cysts
  8. Pregnancy or menopause
  9. Obesity
  10. Neural disorders

Signs and Symptoms

  • Pain in the area of compressions, such as the neck or lower back
  • Radiating pain, such as sciatica or radicular pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Pins and needles or a burning sensation
  • Weakness
  • Symptoms worsen when you try specific movements, such as turning your head or straining your neck

Management

  1. Lifestyle changes: Avoiding movements that cause pain.  Changing job duties may relieve symptoms. Losing weight can improve symptoms if obesity is the cause of nerve compression syndrome,
  2. Physical therapy: Flexibility, strength, and range of motion in the affected area can be improved by working with a physical therapist. Physical therapy can also relieve symptoms, such as pain and numbness.
  3. Medication: Drugs commonly prescribed to manage symptoms caused by nerve compression syndrome include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil) and aspirin. Corticosteroids, such as dexamethasone, are injected directly around the nerve.
  4. Prosthetic devices: In few cases of nerve compression syndrome, a doctor or physical therapist may advise a splint or a brace to help avoid putting pressure on the nerve.
  5. Surgery: The surgical procedure required depends on the type of nerve compression syndrome, the degree of compression, and the nerves and structures affected. Surgery also depends on several factors, which include the duration of the symptoms, the severity of symptoms, and any other underlying health conditions you might have.
  6. Home remedies: The following home remedies may stop or ameliorate symptoms of nerve compression syndrome:
    • Stop activities that cause pain
    • Apply icing on the affected area for 10–15 minutes
    • Taking regular breaks when doing repetitive tasks
    • Applying topical creams, such as menthol
    • Elevating the affected area
    • Keeping the affected area warmPerforming stretches and exercises to improve strength and flexibility
    • Using relaxation exercises
