I am suffering with migraine frequently. What are the measures to control it. Tell me sir why migraine is starting.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Migraine is a relapsing disorder. It aggravates with precipitating factors. Here are few suggestions to avoid relapses - 1) Avoid direct sun exposure for long time, watching TV/ movies in dark rooms 2) Avoid fasting 3) Have adequate sleep at night. Do not change your sleep patterns often 4) Avoid stress, anxiety, excess work load Anyways, if only the recommendations are not working and you still have frequent relapses- 1) Get a treatment for acute migraine attacks 2) Start Prophylaxis treatment for preventing future migraine attacks

My grand mother is suffering from Parkinson but the bigger problem is that she gets fainted when she walks or sits. Is there any thing by which she can walk properly or even sit properly. Her age is about 75 years. She has problem of even getting up from bed.

FRACP, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Ludhiana
She probably has postural hypotension. Bp has to be checked in lying and standing position. If it drops by more than 20 mm then she will need medications. Alternatively she may be having multisystem atropy or drug induced bp fall on standing.

Hba1c is most reliable test and gives an approximate idea of past 3 months sugar level. At your age target should be near to 6.5 with diet exercise and medication. Along with hba1c, following tests needs to be done as you are on anti epileptics as well. Fbs ppbs urine routine serum creatinine lipid profile liver profile.

Carpal nerve syndrome in my right hand. Kindly suggest remedy and specialist contact details. Thanks.
Stretching exercises for the wrist without irritating median nerve, rest to wrist with splints if using a lot when typing, playing sports, ice pack, few times a day. Physiotherapy in form of ultrasound, soft tissue mobilizations, stretching and strengthening can help significantly. Good luck.

I am 39 years old male. I have Restless legs syndrome from last 3 months.

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
Every night elevate your legs from one to four hours before going to bed. (Four hours is a really long time – but if your symptoms are severe, this is where you would start, and then wean back as your symptoms subside.) While your legs are elevated pump your ankles up and down, slowly. (When you push your ankle down, slightly curl your toes. When you lift your ankle up, slightly fan your toes.) Pump your ankles 100 times an hour. (Remember – Exercise should always be comfortable. If it hurts, modify the program.) The above exercise program may be all you need to do to eliminate your symptoms. If not, to further help resolve your complaint, add any of the following and see how they help; While your legs are elevated, tighten and relax your knees 50 -100 times an hour. Walk, Run or Bicycle x 30 minutes when you get home from work. Soak in a tub of cool bath water for 20-30 minutes. Have someone massage your feet and legs every night – preferably a circulation massage, where they try to gently push the fluid in your feet and lower legs up towards your heart.calf and hamstring 5-10 stretches before going to sleep, hot or cold bathing before bed, and the performance of mental activities, such as video games, knitting or conversation.30 minutes on a treadmill in the evening may be a great tonic.

Hi, You might be suffering from epilepsy. To fund the cause a CT scan and followed by evaluation from doctor will help. In the meantime you can go for homeopathy, as it has strong impact in that domain. Also go for stress management class which includes yoga or meditation.

I am 53 years male. Affected by left hemiplegia 7 months before and under rehabilitation now. During sleeping I am getting dreams. Most of the time my childhood days with minute details appearing. Is it a regular symptom for a stroke patient or any dis-order?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Hello, appearance of such dreams are normal. Please donot worry about it. Such dreams comes, because childhood was the most likable period for everyone. Infact, from this superficial history given by you, I can say that it appears to be one of the sign of improvement but not a disorder for-sure.

My father is suffering from parkinson first stage. Is there any cure.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder. It is a chronic condition. Medications can control the symptoms, but it is needed to continue medicines for life. It may be needed to increase the dose of medicines or add few more drugs later on for better control of symptoms. Take advise of a neurologist and continue medicines as advised.

These are symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety may cause excessive worries, inability to relax, fear of something going wrong along with palpitation, increased heart rate, breathlessness, chest pain, dryness of throat and mouth, dizziness, headache, sweating, tremors, tingling and numbness of limbs, churning sensation in abdomen etc. If you have many of these symptoms, then consult a psychiatrist in your locality who may assess you in detail for any anxiety disorder and prescribe you few medicines and/or psychotherapy for cure. I wish you all the best.
