My mother in law aging 73 years has bp and diabetes since very long and has been taking medicine regularly for the same. Last week, she started feeling weak and cramps in legs. 8 days ago, she consulted a physician for the same, e checked the bp and it was 238/110. The doctor has given lasix inj immediately and advised to take lots of fluids and there will be frequent urination after the injection. Within 1.5 hrs of taking that injection she started vomiting. It continued for a day and she became very weak though we have been giving her electoral regularly. Her bp was fluctuating from 190 to 220 for 2 days and she collapsed on 3rd day having seizures. We have taken her to the hospital immediately and the next day it was diagnosed as PRES. Sodium levels were dropped to 97. So the have given sodium for 2 days. She is in ICU now, are the vitals are showing good but still she did not get consciousness. She is able to open her eyes from last 2 days but not looking straight at us neither recognizing or responding to anyone. Doctors are saying it will take time to recover but till now there are no signs of improvement what should we do? What is the general recovery time for this case. What are the improvements we can expect and the timelines? what are the other impacts post recovery? please advise, Thanks a lot!

My mother is a patient of high BP. She use to take medicines of bp daily. From past 8-9 months she is suffering from insomnia. After consulting a doctor she started taking a medicine for it. According to her, she can not sleep for an hour without that medicine. Is it ok to take a medicine daily for a sound sleep? Or will it make some adverse effect on her health in future?

Hello, there are many causes behind backache *any strain or sprain in the muscles or ligaments of the back during lifting of heavy objects is the main cause of the lower back pain. *sitting in the wrong posture for a very long time is another cause. *people suffering from constipation may also suffer from lower back pain. *sometimes sleeping on wrong type of beds can also cause pain in the back. Follow the tips *take rest or move about once in 1-2 hours in case of working in a constant position. *maintain a good posture while reading or working with computers. *take a high fibre content diet like vegetables, fruits, etc.

If your headache is associated with nausea or vomiting and it occurs only on one side of head it may be migraine. In case of migraine you will also identify some triggers like light, sound, smell, lack of sleep etc. causing an attack. Try to identify what causes your headache and avoid that trigger. Also you will be having phonophobia or photophobia in migraine and your headache will worsenbwith physical activity. If your head ache has above mentioned character it is migraine. Take simple analgesics when you have headache.

Remind yourself of what’s going right-Usually people are stressed about just one or two areas of their life. If they only took a moment to look at the big picture, they would see that the vast majority of their life is going well. Grab a pen and some paper and write a list of all the stuff that’s going well in your life. (You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how long the list becomes.). Now stick that list next to your computer, so that you see it all day long. Watch how quickly your perspective changes and your mood lifts. Get ultra clear on your to do list. Clarity enhances serenity. If you’re stressed by how much you have to do, get precise about exactly what tasks must be done (You’ll often realize it’s less than you thought). Once you’ve created your list put a circle around the truly crucial tasks. Most of the time stressed executives have exaggerated just how much they have to do. Getting it down on paper helps you see that mountain of work may be smaller than you thought. Try the 3 breath release. Take a deep breath. Then as you exhale imagine all your problems and stress leaving you. Do this just 3 times. Too much of stress leads to sleep problems. Please consult a Clinical Psychologist.

This is nothing to be afraid of. Get yourself a good and balanced diet plan. Indulge in cardio exercises like jogging or cycling. Endurance cycling is perhaps the best option for you. Gradually push your limits. You will turn out fine. Nonetheless a visit to a general physician is always recommended.
