I am 21 year old male. I am having sleeping disorder. I can't have a sound sleep. I feel sleepy whole day and can not utilize my day time. I try to sleep around 11 in night but never fall asleep before 12.30. I wake up around 7.30 in morning but never feel refreshed always want to stay asleep. After having lunch I can't control myself and feel so sleepy that I just keep lying on bed. I try to take a nap but I don't fall asleep. I feel like I sleep for 5-6 hours a day but waste 10-11 hours on bed doing nothing. Sometimes it feels like insomnia and I can't sleep at all. Please give me any advice. Is it habitual or some disease?

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.

Usually in Migraine headache occur in half of head and it is throbbing in nature. Some time associated with nausea or vomiting, watering of eye, associated with some eating habits and all. So if you have all this kind of symptoms then you have migraine otherwise we have to investigate for other cause of headache.

Mild swelling post operative over forehead and eyes is normal. That will resolve over few days. Do not worry about that. And about his behavior, there are some changes in behavior after brain injury especially in case of frontal lobe. So give him some time. All will settle with time.

What should i do for my migraine problem and body pain? Please help me.
1. Identify and avoid migraine triggers. You can keep track of your headache patterns and identify headache triggers by using a headache diary. 2. Recall what was eaten prior to an attack to help you identify chemical triggers. 3. Manage stress to prevent or reduce the severity of the migraine attacks. 4. Follow a regular daily routine and get adequate rest. 5. Exercise (in moderation) regularly.

Most sex headaches are nothing to worry about. But some can be related to problems with the blood vessels of brain. Also with use of some medications, such as birth control pills. Magnetic resonance angiography (mra) and computerized tomography (ct) angiography may diagnose. Some medications may be taken daily to prevent sex headaches. They're recommended only if she has frequent or prolonged attacks. These are anti-migraine medications and can be taken an hour before sex to prevent headaches.

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

At present there is no documented evidence as to any medicine or food that can cure alheimers. Medicines are available which decrease the progression of the disease. Certain promising trials are going on which suggest that some foods might be beneficial in" preventing" alzheimer's.

-Medical treatment in form of sodium valproate is available to reduce the sensitivity in PSE, -avoid situations in which u might be exposed to stimuli that trigger seizures and/or take steps to diminish ur sensitivity (as by covering one eye) if unavoidably exposed. These actions together can reduce the risk of seizures to almost zero for many PSE patients.
