When I was in 2nd standard in 2003, I was 8 yrs old. It was summer time, some construction was going on in our house! on that day I came home after having a 2 hours tution, and had food. After eating I went to my terrace where the construction was happening! in my house at 2nd floor and at terrace we have solid steel frames for better ventilation (to which we call" tattar"), so small gates of both the" tattar's" on both floors were open. There was a boundary of like 8cm around the" tattar" at terrace. I went to terrace for some work and when I was returning, unfortunately my feet was stuck to that boundary around the" tattar" and I fell down and collide to the flap (dimensions of flap are 3mm thick of solid steel) of the" tattar" at 2nd floor. That flap went through my" left temple from the mid and came out from my forehead from mid here also tearing my skull badly. Though I was gone faint, because of the collision and was referred from jn medical college aligarh for delhi where I had the operation for my broken skull. I got 16 stitches in count and everything was ruined! at that time because of my low age doctors advised me to get heal untill I pass of 18. They also told that my skull can heal and grow again because I was growing then! but now i'm 20 yrs old and i'm healthy but theres still an empty space of like 3.5 cm in length and 2 cm of height, the rest portion healed but it healed as a crack fill up, theres no joint in my skull from mid of my left temple to mid of my forehead. So, please suggest me what should I do to get my self repaired again with a smooth crack less skull. And theres also a big mark of 16 stitches, please tell about the solution for both of these problems. I hope for a reply! please help me!

Headaches can impair daily routine adversely. Particularly if the headache appear daily and last longer than 1-2 hours. If the problem is for last 10 years, I hope you must have investigated yourself in detail and not resorted to just painkillers. If the problem of headache is so troublesome I would recommend you to visit a neurologist and a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management.

Hello lybrate user the kind of pain you have described it may cause due to two reasons either due to scitica or vericose vein. Just examine your calf muscle of right leg and vein structure if veins in that area are not stright it looks like a net of veins it is definetly vericose vein. If they are striaght then it must be scitica pain. Scitica is nerve which extend from lumber region upto toes of both legs. If it is compressed on any side right or left due to gap in lumber vertebra pt feels such a pain in that leg only. So just chek it out and also I want to tell you that no home remedy will able to cure any of these two disease you hav to seek help of perticular expert. I hope this ans will help you find what is your problem.

I have epilepsy I am in medication with Oxytol 300 for two years Since then I haven't experienced any seizures my doctor says it will take 2-3 years to cure. I want to ask what is the reason for it? Can the medication cause long term health risks? My CT scan of brain is normal and my recent EEG report shows" Sharp transients occurring from both hemispheres of brain" as it showed two years before. Am I improving?

MBBS

If you didn't got any seizures in last 2 yrs it is good I will suggest few points Pl go for morning walk in greenery to give more oxygen supply to brain Do pranayam in greenery Anulom-vilom pranayam is very helpful Do meditation regularly to give rest to your brain Continue your treatment Take Cap Brahmi by Himalaya 2 2 for 3to 6mths Put some cow ghee drops in both nostrils and take deep breath Repeat EEG after 6mths to see the changes

Dear, what you are suffering from is a complication of diabetes called diabetic neuropathy. Your lethargy is also probably due to uncontrolled diabetes. So the first step for both the conditions is to treat your diabetes first .

Migraine is a disturbing and relapsing kind of headache. It has to be treated with precision taking into consideration its provocative factors of relapse. At present you may take the same medication for headaches. For preventing future relapses you need prophylactic treatmnet. Consult a headache specialist for the same. For further queries and help online you may contact me.

Homeopath, Ludhiana
There issa reason to everything and so does your problem.It seems like you are into a habit of taking lots of stress and while taking medicines for your problem you have made things even worse.Just always keep onethindin mind that HEALTH is WEALTH and health once lost will never regain its original sshape.Yours iss an age to move forwad in life andit can happen only if you take things positively otherwise you will loose even what you possess.Stress is not the solution but try to find out a solution for your problems.only then it can be solved.Myself is ahomoeopath and I will surely guide you in this direction.Consult me and till then sstart following Bramari Pranayam for relaxing your mind. BRAMARI PRANAYAM or Bee Breath 1.Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2.Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3.Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. .4.Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. .5.Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6.Repeat twenty times.starting from 5 times

My brother is suffering epilepsy from 5 years, he is taking medicine regularly but after completing the course of 5 years, epilepsy come again today. What should I do. Plzz help me.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Nagpur
Some types of epilepsies are not curable and are there lifelong. Patient needs to continue drugs lifelong. However every 3 to 5 years we try to withdraw medications so as to look whether patient becomes drug free. In case there is reappearance of seizures then drugs are again started and then next time while withdrawing the drugs they are tappered much slowly.

I have a migraine problem from last 2 days. please consult. Can I take Homeopathic medicine?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

MD - Psychiatry

Consult a dermetologist because he is quiet old his immunity may be poor. His dementia will lead to lack of proper care for fungal infection and cleenliness so he will mneed local and systemic means oral anti fungal drugs.may be for a little longer duration. Take care of fungal lesion well otherwise it may spread to nails and other body parts because of itching. dont wait to consult.
