I have migraine problem What can I do? Since 2-3 months please suggest the best way.

Dear Lybrate User, *Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. *Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. *Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. *Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. *Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system. *Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain.

Hi v shivering or rigors can be due to various reasons. If it was associated with fever then it may be malaria or dengue. If no fever was associated then a neurological evaluation is indicated. If it was fits, you may not be able to remember the episode. However do get this evaluated.

Drinking coffee prevents Parkinson’s disease

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Nicotine present in the tobacco has been used for its medicinal value for quite some time for diseases like Parkinson’s disease and ulcerative colitis. A study from University of Miami School of Medicine, USA, now has shown that people from families prone to Parkinson’s disease are less likely to develop the disease if they drink coffee on a regular basis.

Both coffee and nicotine have a link with dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical that decreases in patients with Parkinson’s disease. It is possible that people who are going to have Parkinson’s disease have lower levels of dopamine. Those with low levels of dopamine may be more likely to enjoy caffeine.

Parkinson’s disease is caused when brain cells that produce dopamine die. The disease is progressive, affecting about one percent of people older than 65. Symptoms start out with shaking and can progress to paralysis. There is no cure, although a number of drugs can make symptoms better for a time.

Peralized arm is not working even after 1.5 years and all other parts of body is working.

Unani Specialist,
If you are suffering from post stroke paralysis it is important to remember that the area of brain damaged is the cause of paralysis which can be managed. Fortunately brain has power of neuroplasticity because of which recovery is possible. Its not like kidney tissues which can not be recovered after damage. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Well I can say that it appears to be a slightly complicated case in which you need proper examination of motor strength of muscles supplied by the injured nerve and sensory testing before I can say anything, but maybe you can send me your doctor's prescription as must have written your examination. This will enable me to know the degree of impairment present so that I can the guide you on that. Also send me latest nerve conduction study report so that I can see that as well. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

I had a 3 seizure attack one 2 year earlier and other 2, one day before. I was not aware of that disease but it's been diagnosed by a doctor, we are in general hospital, What we should do?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
I hope you have been investigated for the recent seizure attack. If there is no apparent or specific reason for the same, it is probable that you have epilepsy and would need medications for quite a good span of time. I would suggest you to get an EEG and MRI Brain scan done to rule out possible causes of seizures starting at your age. You may consult me online for any further queries or assistance needed
