Hello. My suggestion for you is - continue with the medicines you are on, but gradually and slowly reduce the frequency of use and then stop them completely later and side by side start with the homoeopathic medicines which I am going to advise you, so that they will take start taking the care of your problem. Start with 1 dose of Natrum Mur. 200 daily at 11am, Brahmi (Bacopa Monierri) Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water thrice a day and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night for 15 days. After that report to me about intensity of your sufferings, will recommend you accordingly. For management part: do breathing exercises (like pranayam, anulom- vilum) early in the morning before sunrise, for relieving stress from your body! If possible, you can learn yoga from a qualified yoga-teacher/ instructor.

Though the seizure in your case has a fair explanation on the basis if your medical condition (notably hypoglycemia due to loss of appetite and electrolyte imbalance due to dehydration), still it is advisable to completely investigate any" first episode of seizure" consult a physician, get a baseline eeg done and other investigations if necessary to rule out all possible causes of such episode, apart from your medical condition. Take care.

Dear Dr. l am suffering from hand tremors and weakness in hand. When l face some challenging tasks these symptoms inc...
Dear, some of the behaviors you have described fall into the category of psychotic symptoms. This means your suspiciousness towards your wife and son, the sounds/music that you hear, and other similar behaviors where you doubt intentions of other people - these behaviors indicate that you are displaying symptoms of schizophrenia. However, you also mentioned feelings of worry, anxiety, anger and guilt. These emotional symptoms are making your condition worse and they are also maintaining psychotic symptoms because during these peaks of nervousness, your voice hearing increases. This is leading to a never ending chain of severity. Generally these symptoms of suspiciousness and doubt develop due to lack of social skills and poor reasoning ability. You may be facing difficulties in knowing intentions of others towards you. You do not trust others in general. You are not able to develop attachment with others easily. This may have been present since your childhood. You feel left out and believe nobody cares for you. Feelings of guilt and rejection are some of the signs why you have got these symptoms. You also mention some poor concentration at work and day to day life. This is also common in schizophrenia. You need to consult a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist to relieve these symptoms. Please consult some specialist as soon as possible to prevent your condition from getting worse.
