You Might Be At Risk Too! Know Your Chances Of Developing A Brain Tumor
Symptoms you might have a brain tumor

Brain tumour at times displays warning symptoms and at times, none. The tumour pressing on to any specific part of the brain is becoming common symptom. A tumor could be a simple headache, if it persists and doesn't seem normal, it should be tested by a specialist rather than resorting to home remedies.

Here is when you must get tested for a brain tumour:

1. Severe headaches: headaches which are at their worst early in the mornings or after any activity.

2. Many people experience seizures of different kinds. It includes:

A. Myclonic - which are single or multiple spasms, jerks and muscle twitches
B. Tonic-glonic - which shows signs like loss of consciousness, loss of body function control, and not being able to breathe for about 30 seconds and turning blue which is followed by weakness, numbness or sore muscles.
C. Sensory - which is a change in smell, vision, hearing and/or sensation. The person doesn't lose consciousness in this symptom.
D. Complex partial - where a person may have lose of awareness. Another symptom is partial or complete loss of consciousness.

3. Changes in memory and personality.

4. Vomiting and/or nausea

5. Unexplained fatigue

6. Other very specific symptoms of brain tumour might look like these:

A. Change in vision. This could include partial loss of vision or double visibility.
B. Numbness or weakness of face muscles and difficulty in swallowing.
C. Headache caused due to pressure on the tumour.
D. Changes in motor skills and loss of judgment.
E. One major symptom is where people are simply unable to look upwards.

So, please give a good advice to overcome this illness.

It is purely non- confident state of mental health. Those with strong will power can resist any such attack successfully and come out to be victorious even though the attack was a real one. So try to develop confidence in yourself as your un - supportive will power is your only enemy. In this disease confrontation with each other and reassurance helps most rather than any drug.

Parkinson's Disease: Dos and Don'ts

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
PMR (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation) Specialist, Indore
Parkinson's Disease: Dos and Don'ts

Parkinson’s disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with parkinson’s. There is no cure for parkinson’s, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.

Signs

The 4 most common signs of parkinson’s are:

• tremors or shaking when at rest

• muscle stiffness

• slowed movement or problems starting movement

• problems with balance and movement

As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.

Your care

When you start to show signs of this disease, your doctor may order anti parkinsonian medicines or may also suggest some physical therapy to help manage your signs. The physical therapist can help you learn exercises, prescribed by a physiatrist, that can help you with movements.

You may need to work with your doctor to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat parkinson’s disease, but they can be managed well.

You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.

Things you can do to manage your signs

When walking

• walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart. Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.

• use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.

• if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to
Side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.

• place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.

• stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or
Lightheaded.

When using the bathroom

• install grab bars on the walls, beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.

• use a shower chair inside the shower.

• install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.

• shave with an electric razor.

When dressing

• wear loafers or shoes with velcro.

• wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.


When eating or drinking

• use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.

• use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.


Work closely with your health care team to manage your signs of parkinson’s disease.

Thank you for posting your query. I am not sure how allopathy medicines did not help you. Topiramate and propranolol are very effective in reducing the severity and frequency of headaches. At home, try to eat on time and sleep well. Avoid stress and tension.

How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat Migraine!

Are you looking for an ideal treatment and management for various kinds of headaches? Do you suffer from migraine headaches? You should opt for Ayurvedic treatment, which is considered to be very effective in dealing with headaches of various types.

Migraine headaches

Migraine is a form of headache that is known as Sooryavata according to Ayurvedic principles. Such headaches worsen during sunrise, peak during the afternoon and tend to reduce during evening. Migraine occurs because of an excessive stimulation of blood vessels in the brain. A person affected with migraine is likely to experience nausea and vomiting, along with a throbbing headache on one side of the head. Migraine headaches can be caused due to hormonal changes, allergy from certain food items or excess stressApart from regular exercises and a proper diet, the most effective Ayurvedic remedies for dealing with migraine headaches are as follows:

  • Shirolepa or the applications of herbal pastes on the head is effective for pacifying pitta dosha. Camphor, jatasmansi, and sandalwood are also effective.
  • Shiro Dhara, an Ayurvedic therapy, where a thin stream of liquid is poured over your scalp is helpful.
  • Taila dhara is effective for migraine headaches as well, in which oils such as chandanadi taila and ksheerabala taila are used for treatment.

Cluster headaches
Cluster headaches refer to headaches on one side of the head. It is known as Suryavartham according to Ayurveda. These consist of a series of short, but painful headaches, stretched over weeks or months together. Such headaches occur because of disruptions in the nervous system. Usually, the pain starts early in the morning in the eyes. There are several Ayurvedic remedies for the management of cluster headaches. Some of them are as follows:

  • Use an ointment or paste made of dried ginger and Kermpferia.
  • Use a paste of Indian aloe vera, asafoetida and coriander for pain relief.
  • Grind cumin seeds and mix it with lemon juice. Keep the mixture on the painful area of your head for quick relief.
  • Have coconut water.

Recurrent headaches
Any form of headache, which tends to reoccur after some time instead of ending is referred to as recurrent headache. There are several Ayurvedic remedies for the effective management of recurrent headaches. They as are as follows:

  • Boil one teaspoon of haritaki powder in water and drink it.
  • Massage your neck gently using warm calamus root oil.
  • Lie down with your nostrils parallel to the ceiling, and apply sesame oil in your nostrils. This is known as nasal therapy.
