My mother has migrane pains once a month. We had ct scan of the head on recommendation of a moolchand doctor and nothing was found. What next can we do to reduce this frequency of pains. Her head aches and she vomits. I can't see her in pain. Please let me know what can I do to ease it.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Once a month is mild grade migraine. In case of acute pain start taking tablet brufen twice a day for 3 days. Tab emset sos for vomiting. Tab rantac empty stomach for 3 days for associated dyspepsia. But if situation goes on worsening like 1-2 attack /wk then there are medicine available like flunarizzine and propranolol but don't take them in mild migraine. In case of severe acute pain not controlled by medicine you can take tablet rizatriptan sos only once in 24 hrs.

I got married last month and I am afraid only because of this .I want to stop this medicine and is their any possibility to do so Thanks for viewing this .waiting for an reply God bless you.

You have epilepsy, that is recurrent tendency to seize or have fits. Medications available for the same help in controlling the frequency of fit and maintaining a stable seizure free state. Duration for continuation of treatmnet depends upon how what was the seizure free interval while on medications. If this was more than 3 years, then medications can be considered for tapering and stopping treatmnet. However this has to be done under the close supervision of the treating physician. Eptoin and levipil both are good anti epileptics, but if you still have seizure often, then you should investigate yourself for the drug levels and opt for a change in medications accordingly. Consult you treating physician for more help. For further queries and assistance you may contact me onine.

Hello Sir/Madam, I am 31 year old. I have Brain Tumor. It had detected 6-7 months back. About its symptoms i am suffering from headache which is unbearable around tumor area. I am having right now ayurvedic medicine. But i want to know whether it is completely curable disease or not? Please ans me as soon as possible. And also guide me for precautions.

Brain tumours outcome depends on the type of the tumour. But it should be operated upon first , removed as much is safely possible and then act according to the biopsy report. U should not delay the treatment by any alternative medicine because the more delay u are doing the worse it would become. Consult a Neurosurgeon asap near u and get it operated

Sometimes I have pain in half portion of my head at that time I have to grab painkiller Some Dr. Says that it is a symptoms of migraine effect stay away from hot weather.what to do

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause.

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
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
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.

Respected sir, my father is 59 years old suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia. Progressive in nature. 1. Slurring of speech since 2007 2. Gait abnormality since 2009 3. Writing abnormality since 2009 he is not having any comorbidities neither any family history. Please help me if you have any suggestion for him.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Progressive sca at 59 years age is unusual and should trigger a search for various conditions: cerebrovascular disease, demyelinating disease, infectious diseases, vitamin deficiency, toxic exposure, sarcoidosis, autoimmune diseases (eg, sle, sjogren syndrome), and alcohol-induced cerebellar degeneration. Other diseases that can mimic this condition include late-onset spinocerebellar ataxia with or without a family history, olivopontocerebellar degeneration, and other degenerative diseases of the brain. The most problematic is paraneoplastic cerebellar degernation, even though it is slightly more common among women; in men, it may signal an occult small cell ca of the lung, or hodkgin lymphoma. Apart from the tests for the other conditions mentioned, a test for anti-yo antibody and a search for occult malignancy should be done. Treatment is by physiotherapy/gait therapy, and treatment for the underlying condition if possible.

I'm 26 years old male, and I have migraine problem since last 8 years, could you please suggest the solution to get rid of this?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.

Numbness may be because of peripheral neuropathy or vascular compromise. The cause of peripheral neuropathy may be deranged blood sugar. Take multivitamin like neurokind plus. Get your blood sugar and colour doppler of lower limbs done. You may consult a physician for detailed physical examination and management.
