I regularly have headache and I have been told by doctor that I have migraine. Wanted to know is there any treatment by which I can cure it permanently?

Start doing anulom vilom but it should be done in a very slow motion and if possible do it under observation. This will help reduce its frequency and intensity and regular practise will cure it. Take 1 drop of pure cow ghee and apply it inside your both nostril, if it dosnt work then medicated ghee has to be provided to cure it permanently.

Migraine headaches may occur with a feeling of tension and discomfort in the neck. Although this tension is thought to be secondary to the migraine (not the cause of it), so try to avoid stress and anxiety. Do take proper balanced diet stretching exercises can sometimes be useful in helping to reduce the discomfort. Try to do regular exercises.

This is called peripheral neuropathy. Get your blood sugar done as it is a known cause of it. We have to rule out leprosy also, in which you have to take help of a dermatologist.

I'm a 20year old female and I have a worm inside my brain, I dnt know the correct term for it. I have been taking oxetol 300mg for the past 3months and I'm perfectly fine. But I wanted to know the mazor precautions which I should take in my case?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Worm inside brain is called neurocysticercosis. It may cause seizure (epileptic fits). Oxetol (oxcarbazapine) is an antiepileptic drug given to such patients to avoid seizure. You should take medicines in time and never miss a dose. These type of patients are prone to an epileptic fit, hence they should avoid riding bike/bicycle, working at height, working near heavy machinery, working at height or near water body or fire.

Dear lybrate user, pinched nerve also called disc herniation, if in neck then also called cervical radiculopathy. The treatment depends on current pain, extent of compression and grade of herniation. If it is mild protrusion without neuropathy then conservative management should be sufficient. Many times it is not, then image guided epidural advised for immediate relief, modulation of nerves and disc. If there is bigger protrusion or protrusion with neuropathy, you might be advised nucleoplasty or endoscopic discectomy and in advanced stage of herniation open spine surgery advised. What you can do is consult interventional pain specialist trained with advancement or orthopedician trained in spine for evaluation and further treatment. Regards.
