My wife, 66 years, suffered a intracerebral brain hemorrhage stroke more than a year ago. She is not under any medication for this other than her regular drugs for diabetics and hypertension. She still feels numbness around her right cheeks and continues to feel bitter taste in her saliva. Is this a common phenomena as some doctors say? Is there any medicine that can help to improve without much side effects? (She is too sensitive to most of the common medications.)

Hello. She may feel like that. Use 1 pince of Paccha Karpura (you will get in grocery shop) added in 200 ml of water for gargling twice daily. It'll help her.

Hi, my wife is 47 years. She is having history of migraine for the last 20 years. It turned into depression. She took medicine duzela-40 for 8-9 months in 2011. After she recovered and stopped taking this medicine. Subsequently she was dignosed thiroyd. She is prescribed thyrox-25 and is taking this medicine since last 2012. Now in the month of feb 2015 she got stroke i. E. Vometing & giddiness and became semicountious. We called the doctor found that she was having high blood pressure at 154/100 at that moment. Doctor gave medicine and bp came down to normal within 4 hours. After that she started feeling problem in hearing from left ear and subsequently started problem in speaking. We consulted neurologyst who suggested mri of brain. The report says" grossly normal examination with incidental finding of small arachnoid cyst in the left sylvian region. The neurologyst started stalopapam-5, rejunex cd3 & ecosprin. She took the medicine since last 20 days her other problems subsided, however, the problem of speaking aggravated. We consulted neurosurgen also who said that the mri is normal and no need of surgery. The neurologyst again examined and immediately stopped stalopam-5, instead, suggested benadryl syrup and continued the other medicines. My wife is not able to speak properly. please suggest whether we are on right way .Thanks and regards.

You should try yoga. And have a walk after dinner. Take milk at night. And go sleep after that. Don't engage your self in any work becoz your not getting d sleep. Just switch off d lites and listen slow music of memory. It will definitely help u. Even will take some time but you will succeed. All d best.

Migraine can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed under supervision, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines.

My friend met with an accident on Saturday night due to blood clot in central part of the brain, he is in deep coma right now since that day. Please help me know he can be recovered.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The outcome for coma and vegetative state depends on the cause and on the location, severity, and extent of neurological damage: outcomes range from recovery to death. People may emerge from a coma with a combination of physical, intellectual, and psychological difficulties that need special attention. Recovery usually occurs gradually, with patients acquiring more and more ability to respond. Some patients never progress beyond very basic responses, but many recover full awareness. Patients recovering from coma require close medical supervision. A coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. Some patients may regain a degree of awareness after vegetative state. Others may remain in a vegetative state for years or even decades. The most common cause of death for a person in a vegetative state is infection such as pneumonia. Duration depends on the severity of the injury and patient general condition, often short; rarely more than 2-4 weeks.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. These exercises are meant for your back and abdominal strengthening, basically you can do similar exercises lying down also, so your colle' s fracture component is taken care of. But you will need evaluation and proper management for your symptoms. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
