I am suffering from chronic headache since last 3 months. It occurs with a gap of few days but when it attacks lasts for 2 days. Is it migraine or something dangerous.

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.

Hi doc, I am a medical student. I have minute tremors which mostly get aroused during conditions like handling an object, or when I get scared or when I don't eat. My thyroid pro. Done b4 6-8 months were normal. I have this prob since last 4-5 years. What to do?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
CML is a rare condition and you are fighting it. The medications are perfect and you should be able to lead normal life soon. So continue your treatment with a positive mindset. You will be alright soon. The real cause of tremors is just nervousness coming out of the battle. You are a brave young man. Toss all these jittery thoughts into air by the flick of mind and pursue your education with a focus. You will be a great doctor one day. Don't pat any attention to tremors. They will vanish the moment you neglect them.

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!

When to Seek Medical Help for Epilepsy

MD, MBBS
Neurologist, Gurgaon
When to Seek Medical Help for Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a form of chronic disorder and it is characterized by recurrent seizures. The episodes of epileptic seizures may differ from person to person. These seizures could be a result of genetic disorder or a result of trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a patient may also experience symptoms of neurological disorders and sometimes lose consciousness.

Medical help for epilepsy
Epilepsy itself cannot be cured using medication, but proper medicines help in eliminating recurrent seizures. These medicines stabilize the electrical activity within the brain preventing seizures.

How effective is the medication for epilepsy?
The success of controlling seizures using medicines depends on the type and severity of epilepsy. Medicines for epilepsy are usually very effective and may fully keep seizures under control. However, controlling seizures caused due to brain problems may be more difficult. Usually, epilepsy medicines can control seizures for a long period of time when they are taken regularly.

When is medical help needed?
The decision about when to start medicines for epilepsy is a tricky one. This is because a first seizure cannot confirm whether a person has an on-going epilepsy problem. A second seizure may occur after many years or may not happen at all. Prediction of seizures is also quite difficult.

The severity of seizures also indicates when to start medicines for treatment. In case a first seizure is quite severe, medication should be started at once. Some people have very mild seizures even though they may be recurring in nature, and medication can be avoided in this situation. After first seizure MRI and EEG may help to know whether you have the risk of second seizure or not.

All the pros and cons must be thought over before starting medications for the treatment of epilepsy. It is advisable to wait for a second seizure and then start medications for treatment. In most cases, medication is started after a second seizure occurs, twelve months within the first seizure. You should always consult a doctor to know when you need to start taking medicines to treat the condition.

For making the most out of the medicines to control seizures, you should follow certain steps:

  1. You must take medications exactly as your doctor has prescribed.
  2. Before switching to generic versions of your medicines or before taking other prescribed medicines, you must consult your doctor.
  3. You should never stop taking the medicines.
  4. In case you experience enhanced depression, mood swings and suicidal thoughts, you should talk to your doctor immediately.
  5. In case you have migraine, you should let your doctor know so that he can prescribe you anti-epileptic medicines, which also prevent migraines.

Medicines cannot treat the underlying cause of epilepsy, but these help in controlling seizures and this is the most common symptom of epilepsy. Medication should be started at a proper time and must be continued without stopping.
