Hi I had fallen from staircase and suffered head injury on 30 Jan 2005, I was in sense and my left eye surrounding was black for around two months, even I don't remember events between 30 Jan - 08 Feb2005. I was treated by a neurologist I recovered from that head injury. But after sometimes I felt I lost my smelling sense. And I am hypertensive taking losartan 25 mg twice in a day. Can my lost smelling sense be cured?

In most cases a trial of steroids is appropriate (prednisolone by mouth) but beyond this there are a range of simple, medical and surgical treatment options depending on the cause and the perceived severity.

I am 45 years old and suffering from Parkinson disease since last 2 years. I have taken treatment from neurologist doctor but no relief. Please guide me.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Kindly provide details of your symptoms. Also explain what you mean by no relief with medicines. If the diagnosis is correct, then there cannot be a'no response to medicines' - that is one of the criteria for diagnosis. Hence this information is crucial.

My Husband was operated for tumor in his brain (right) in dec 2013. After 2 months he regained some of his left leg movement and now walking slowly with cane. However, he could move slightly his left shoulder, close his fist. There are no movement in fingers or cannot open his fist. His Physiotherapy is still on going. Please , i would want to understand the situation.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Indore
Right side brain controls left side of body. Brain tumour on right was removed. So some part of the brain was removed. The work or function of that particular removed brain was lost. This was accepted because tumour would have killed him if not removed. So loss of function of part of body like hand arm and shoulder was sacrificed for him to be alive. Nature recovers some function but whatever can not be recovrered person have to live without and thank god for life.

I gave up alcohol 9 years back and after that I suffered from insomnia. My visit to an ayurvedic physician did not help and so I consulted a psychiatrist. He put me on 0.5 mg alprazolam b.i.d which helped but I used to get up in the morning with a jittery feeling and a month later I developed depression. When I went back to him he prescribes clonazepam 0.5 mg. To be taken along with alprazolam. I was fine after this but now after 9 years I have started with depression and restless sleep. My present psychiatrist suggests alternate medicine but is not sure. Can a psychiatrist help me with a solution.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Migraine Vs. Headache - Know The Difference!

MD, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
Migraine Vs. Headache - Know The Difference!

'Tension type headache' is the most common type of headache experienced by most of us in our life.

How to differentiate between a Migraine and Tension-type Headache?

When you feel pain or pressure in your head, it may become difficult for you to assess whether you are experiencing a tension-type headache or a migraine. Let's understand how different they are from each other.

A typical tension-type headache usually affects both sides of your head and varies from a mild to moderate pain. It can last from 30 minutes to up to a period of one week.

Some specific areas which get affected by a tension-type headache are:

  •   Temples
  •   Forehead
  •   Back of your neck

Factors that trigger this headache type are a muscle strain, stress or anxiety.

A migraine, on the other hand, is also a type of a tension-type headache which results in an acute throbbing sensation in one part of your head. Usually, migraine headaches are highly painful. Migraine pain makes it difficult for a person to carry out his/her daily tasks. Symptoms or signs associated with migraine attacks are:

  •   Vomiting
  •   Nausea
  •   Sensitivity to sound or light
  •   Pain in the temples
  •   Temporary loss of vision
  •   Pain behind your ear or eye

What are the common causes of a migraine?

  •   Hormonal imbalances in women - fluctuations in oestrogen, especially during menopause or pregnancy seem to trigger a migraine
  •   Drinks like wine and extremely caffeinated beverages
  •   Foods such as salty foods, aged cheese as well as processed foods can trigger the migraine attack.
  •   Medications - vasodilators such as nitroglycerine and oral contraceptives can intensify migraine pain.

How to treat a tension-type headache?

Fortunately, you can get rid of stress-induced headaches through over-the-counter treatments, which include:

  •   Aspirin
  •   Acetaminophen
  •   Ibuprofen

How to treat a migraine?

If you experience migraine attacks less frequently, these medicines may give you quick relief:

  •   Triptans, such as rizatriptan (Maxalt) or almotriptan (Axert)
  •   Antinausea medicines, such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine), promethazine (Phenergan) or prochlorperazine (Compazine)
  •   Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, aspirin or ibuprofen

Some preventive tips:

  •   Make changes in your diet such as avoid such foods, including caffeine and alcohol which are believed to trigger tension-type headaches.
  •   You can also try muscle relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation to ease the migraine attack.

Hii Sir/mam I have a question regarding my own health. I have problem of migraine. It is mainly due to the gas problem. My half head Start getting pained while this. What can I do to get rid of it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

It is possible that you are suffering from neuropraxia, due to mechanical pressure on the peripheral nerves. You would get better on own in a few days. You may take vitamin supplements.
