Dear Lybrate user, It is better to avoid the drug if you are considering conception. Consult your physician/ neurophysician whether an alternative drug can be taken for seizure which is comparatively safer. If not, you can go ahead with pregnancy. Intense monitoring and lookout for any congenital malformation will be required..

Epilepsy - Signs and Symptoms You Must Know!

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MD - Psychiatry, DPM

Epilepsy - Signs and Symptoms You Must Know!

Epilepsy is a disorder in the central nervous system characterized by recurrent seizures. An unexpected rush of electrical activity inside the brain leads to a seizure. Brain activity becomes abnormal and leads to periods of unusual behaviour with loss of awareness at times.

Seizures do not always include unusual muscle movements or convulsions. Untreated seizures can seriously affect the lives of children having them. Epilepsy affects both men and women regardless of their ethnic background and age.

Signs of Epilepsy:

  • A staring spell
  • Momentary bewilderment
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Jerking movements of arms and legs.
  • Panic or anxiety

Kinds of Seizures:
Seizures are normally classified as focal or generalized depending on the commencement of abnormal brain activity.

  1. Focal (partial) seizures result from abnormal activity in a particular area of the person's brain. Simple partial seizures may change emotions or the way things smell, appear, feel, sound or taste. It is characterized by tingling and dizziness.
  2. Complex partial seizures or focal seizures with impaired awareness entail a modification of or loss of awareness and consciousness. Repetitive movements are performed during such seizures such as hand rubbing, walking in circles or swallowing.

Thorough testing is needed to differentiate epilepsy from other neurological disorders such as narcolepsy, migraine or mental illness.

Generalized seizures normally affect all areas of the brain and consist of:

  • Tonic seizures lead to muscle stiffness and normally affects muscles in the person's back, legs and arms.
  • Atonic seizures or drop seizures lead to a loss of muscle control which makes a person abruptly collapse or fall down.
  • Myoclonic seizures are visible as short jerks or twitches of a person's arms and legs.
  • Clonic seizures are characterized by repetitive or rhythmic jerking muscle movements.
  • Tonic-clonic seizures cause sudden loss of consciousness, quivering and body stiffening.
  • Absence seizures might take place in clusters and lead to momentary loss of awareness.

Symptoms of Epilepsy:
The main symptoms of epilepsy are seizures and it differs from one person to another.

Symptoms of Focal (partial) seizures include:

  • Dizziness
  • Change or modification in the sense of smell, taste, hearing, sight or touch.
  • Twitching and tingling of limbs.

Symptoms of Complex partial seizures include:

  • Unresponsiveness
  • Staring blankly
  • Performing repetitive movements
  • Loss of awareness or consciousness

Genetics may provide a person with a natural seizure threshold as a person who is susceptible to seizure triggers is said to have inherited a low seizure threshold. A higher threshold conversely makes a person less liable to have seizures.

Epilepsy is a comparatively common neurological disorder that affects innumerable people worldwide and treatments range from medication to surgery.

My mother is surrounded by the disease of clotting in brain, now she feels heavy ness in head what should we do?
Physiotherapy is the solution. Because once clotting occurs it takes time to heal up. Area supplied by the vessel will become necrose and leads to anxiety symptom. Kindly consult neurologist and and give good psychotherapy to mother through the doctor.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes And Treatment!!

Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes And Treatment!!

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a medical condition in which the patient's breathing is obstructed for brief periods of time. Normally, air flows into the lungs at all times. But for a person suffering from OSA condition, the breathing pattern is hampered and the flow of the air is restricted. The flow of air stops because the airway space may be very narrow. Snoring is the biggest symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.


All the symptoms that you might be experiencing due to lack of sleep will be experienced through OSA. They are periods where there is a decreased oxygen supply to the brain and as a result, you will be experiencing a disturbed sleep throughout the night. Some of the other symptoms can include headaches, forgetfulness, and drowsiness. Depression, hyperactivity and swelling in legs and daytime drowsiness are other common symptoms that can be associated with it.


OSA is common in people who are overweight and people who suffer from obesity. There are 3 major types of sleep apnea.

  1. Obstructive sleep apnea: This is the most common type where the airway becomes narrowed or blocked.
  2. Central sleep apnea: There is no blockage involved, but the brain does not give out any signal to breath.
  3. Mixed sleep apnea: This is a combination of both - obstructive and central sleep apnea.

The other factors that can cause OSA can include children with large tonsils, large tongue, and certain heart diseases.


A diagnosis of sleep apnea begins with a complete history and physical examination. Your snoring patterns are analyzed and how rested your body is being taken into account. The doctor will also examine your head and neck to identify any physical factors that may be associated with sleep apnea. Mostly you might be asked to take a test at one of the sleep centers to identify your sleep patterns. The results would be analyzed for better identification of the treatment.


Positive Airways Pressure Therapy, or PAP therapy, can prevent or reduce the serious health consequences of OSA. PAP therapy helps people with all levels of OSA, from mild to severe. It is most common therapy for OSA.

There are different forms of PAP therapy. All forms of PAP help keeping the airway open during the night. These devices provide a stream of air through a mask you wear while you sleep. The airstream prevents your airway from closing, so you don't stop breathing and wake up during the night.

The mask must fit and make a seal in order to keep throat open. A good mask seal will prevent air leaks and maintain the right level of air pressure. The amount of air pressure needed is different for each person.

PAP is usually the first form of treatment for OSA. There are other treatments for OSA. You can talk to your health care provider about which treatment is right for you.  

If you are overweight, weight loss can help improve or eliminate your OSA. Oral appliances will use to treat mild to moderate OSA. They fit over the teeth and are worn during sleep. People with OSA may have surgery to reduce the tissue in their throats or to help them lose weight. Lifetyle of behavioral changes, such as quitting smoking or not drinking alcohol, can also help treat OSA. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

Thakaan Ke Karan In Hindi - शारीरिक थकान के कारण

Thakaan Ke Karan In Hindi - शारीरिक थकान के कारण

शारीरिक थकान एक स्वाभाविक लक्षण है शरीर में जो कि आवश्यक है. जब भी आप कोई श्रम या मेहनत वाला काम जैसे कि कसरत या कोई और काम जिसमें आपके शारीर की मांसपेशियों और लेकिन यदि ये बिना किसी उचित कारण के हो रही है तब चिंता का विषय भी है.अक्सर यह देखने में आता है कि साधन संपन्न अमीर व्यक्ति भी बुरी तरह मानसिक और शारीरिक थकान को महसूस करता है. जबकि उसके पास सुख प्राप्त करने के सभी अत्य-आधुनिक साधन उपलब्ध होते हैं. पर थकान के कारण वह अपने अंदर कार्य -शक्ति का अभाव महसूस करते हैं. इसके विपरीत आम आदमी, कठोर काम करके तथा कम पौष्टिक आहार लेकर जीवन यापन करने पर भी अपना जीवन सक्रिय रूप से जीते हैं. इससे स्पष्ट होता है कि काम की अधिकता या पौष्टिक भोजन के स्तर की कमी ही शारीरिक थकान का एकमात्र कारण नहीं है, बल्कि कुछ दूसरी बातें भी हैं, जो थकान उत्पन्न करती हैं और काम न करने की इच्छा पैदा करती हैं. दौड़ती भागती ज़िंदगी में आगे निकलने के रेस में लोग इतना भागते हैं कि वह थक जाते हैं और सुस्त भी हो जाते हैं.
1. मधुमेह के कारण: छ लोगों को जल्दी शारीरिक थकान होने का कारण शरीर में रक्त की मात्रा आवश्यकता से भी कम होना, थाइराइड ग्रंथि का ठीक से काम न करना या फिर मधुमेह आदि रोग से ग्रस्त होना होता है. मधुमेह भी शारीरिक थकान का एक महत्वपूर्ण कारण हो सकता है.
2. इच्छानुसार काम न होने की वजह से: मनोवैज्ञानिकों के अनुसार थकान, रुचि और इच्छा कम होने की अवस्था है. शारीरिक थकान का सामान्य अर्थ मन अथवा शरीर की सामर्थ्य के घट जाने से लिया जाता है. ऐसी हालत में आदमी से काम नहीं होता या बहुत कम होता है. थका हुआ व्यक्ति निष्क्रिय पड़ा रहता है.
3. बोर हो जाने के कारण: जब हमें किसी कार्य में आनंद आता है, तो हम लगातार काम करते रहने पर भी मानसिक और शारीरिक थकान महसूस नहीं करते, जबकि एक ही प्रकार के कार्य करते रहने से लंबी अवधि के बाद रुचि कम होकर मन में ऊब पैदा हो जाती है, इसी कारण सुस्ती तथा अरुचि महसूस होती है.
4. मानसिक घुटन का शिकार होना: जो व्यक्ति स्वभाव से संकोची होते हैं ,जीवन साथी या अन्य आसपास के लोग कठोर स्वभाव के और डांट-फटकार करने वाला होते है, उनकी भावनाएं दब जाती हैं क्योंकि वो अपने संकोची स्वभाव के चलते अपनी भडास नहीं निकाल पाते, उन्हें लगातार मानसिक घुटन का सामना करना पड़ता है. ऐसी भावनाएं भी लोगों को निष्क्रिय और थका हुआ बनाती हैं.
5. मानसिक अस्वस्थता: मानसिक और शारीरिक थकान के अन्य कारणों में कार्य में अरुचि, प्रेरणा का अभाव, मनोरंजन न करना, मानसिक अस्वस्थता अथवा शारीरिक रोग आदि हो सकते हैं. इस वजह से भी आप खुद को थका हुआ महसूस कर सकते हैं. कई लोगों में ये समस्या थोड़ी ज्यादा ही होती है.
6. एनीमिया के कारण: एनीमिया (खून की कमी से होने वाला रोग) के रोगी को भी जरा-जरा से काम करने के बाद अधिक शारीरिक थकान का अनुभव होता है. ऐसे लोगो को टमाटर और गाजर का जूस तथा हरी पत्ते दार सब्जियां अधिक मात्रा में खानी चाहिए. यह एक गंभीर बिमारी है यदि समय रहते इसपर ध्यान नहीं दिया गया तो नतीजे खतरनाक हो सकते हैं.
7. अत्यधिक परिश्रम करने से: सामान्य रूप से जब अधिक परिश्रम किया जाता है, तो हमारी मांसपेशियां, हड्डियाँ आदि शक्तिशाली बनते हैं. शरीर की कार्यक्षमता भी बढ़ जाती है, लेकिन सीमा से अधिक किया गया परिश्रम मानसिक, शारीरिक या स्नायु संबंधी थकावट उत्पन्न करता है. ये सबसे सामयान्य कारण है जिससे लगभग सभी लोग गुजरते हैं. ये जरुरी भी है ताकि हमें अपने शरीर की क्षमता का पता चल सके.

My mother is suffering from meningioma diagnosed before 1 week through MRI. But doctors said that it is not a problem because it is small and found in mri sometimes in everyone. Is it a serious case? Or need consulting another neuro surgeon? Thanks in advance She has severe headache frequently now a days Is this happening due to meningioma? Mri report as follows Extra axial mass lesion in the right occipital convexity and a broad base towards dura Subtle hyperintensity in the left putamen ischemic or metabolic etiosy.

My mother is suffering from meningioma diagnosed before 1 week through MRI. But doctors said that it is not a problem...
Hi, Yes sometimes it so happens that a meningoma may be found incidentally which Imaging brain - which means it is not related to her headaches. If the meningioma is small and not causing any mass effects- there is no reason to worry. Perhaps get a follow up MRI brain in a year to see if it's size is stable. From the information you shared, I concur with her doctor's opinion- her headaches could be migraines, which are the most common headache type or tension type headaches- but that cannot be said with certainty without specific questioning about her headaches. PS- the other MRI finding in putamen also is unrelated to headaches, but without looking at the scan I cannot confirm what it actually means.
