Excessive cold can cause such symptoms. Otherwise if you have any other medical complain like vit. B 12 deficiency, or diabetes or any other nerve problem it can cause such symptoms.

Because rheumatic fever is the primary cause of mitral stenosis, secondary prophylaxis against group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (GAS) is recommended.

I am unable to move my left toe upwards. I feel a sort of numbness in it. I am also unable to lift my steps properly while walking, jogging and especially climbing stairs. I also have huge muscle cramps in my calf muscle and toes which starts exactly once I lie down to sleep.

Take homoeopathic medicine Ledum Pal 30 3 doses at the interval of 1 hour and then report after 1 week. Advise is to consult with proper details. For an accurate prescription.

The patient had fits and was rushed to the hospital. The doctors said that it was due to depression and high cholesterol. The MRI report is available. Can a patient experience fits in such a condition? Should we take a second opinion with a Neurologist?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Please take a neurologist opinion. There is no need to rush the patient to hospital during a fit. Please give first aid. F\Mostly fits will stop by itself in 3-5 minutes. If it does not stop and if fits occurs again, then rush to hospital. Depression may not be a reason for a 'real' fits. High cholesterol by its blockage of brain blood tubes can cause fits. It will be clea, r once you consult neurologist along with a person who observed the patient fully during the fit.

Ayurveda helps in cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy refers to a group of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle co-ordination. 

Symptoms:
Lack of muscle co-ordination when performing voluntary movements (ataxia)
Stiff or tight muscles and exaggerated reflexes (spasticity)
Walking with one foot or leg dragging
Walking on the toes, a crouched gait, or a'scissored' gait
Muscle tone that is either too stiff or too floppy

Causes:
Cerebral palsy is usually due to brain damage in the first few months or years of life, brain infections such as bacterial meningitis or viral encephalitis, or head injury.

Ayurveda treatment for cerebral palsy:

Ayurveda has shown very good results in patients of cerebral palsy. Though cerebral palsy may not be fully cured, ayurvedic treatment can definitely help to reduce disability and improve the functioning of the affected individual to a great extent. The ayurvedic treatment of cerebral palsy focuses on treating the presenting symptoms and attempting to reverse the brain damage.

Medicines which help in improving the functional capacity of the brain and may also help in regeneration of damaged brain cells are:

Brahmi (bacopa monnieri)
Mandukaparni (centella asiatica)
Shankhpushpi (convolvulus pluricaulis)
Jyotishmati (celastrus paniculatus)
Kushmand (benincasa hispida)
Ustukhuddus (lavandula stoechas)
Yashtimadhu (glycyrrhiza glabra)
Ashwagandha (withania somnifera)
Shatavari (asparagus racemosus)
Guduchi (tinospora cordifolia)
Vacha (acorus calamus)
Haritaki (terminalia chebula)
Abhrak bhasma
Suvarna bhasma
Suvarna prashan

Some of these medicines are also useful in preventing or reducing convulsions.

Medicines which helps in the formation of the muscles and tissues are:

Guduchi (tinospora cordifolia)
Amalaki (emblica officinalis)
Musta (cyperus rotundus)
Panch tikta ghrita
Panch tikta ghrita guggul
Brahmi ghrita
Pancha gavya ghrita

Medicines are used to improve nerve conduction and muscular co-ordination are:

Kaishor guggul
Yograj guggul
Vata gajankush ras
Mahavatvidhwans ras
Tapyadi loh ras
Vishtinduk vati

Panchkarma therapy:

Panchakarma therapies which are useful in this condition are:

Abhyangam: massage of the entire body with medicated oils like mahanarayan oil, maha-mash-oil and maha-saindhav-oil are very useful.
Pinda sweda
Shirobasti
Shirodhara
Basti

Yoga:

Yogic postures useful in cerebral palsy are as follows:

Dandasana
Trikonasana
Bharadvajasana
Tadasana
Uttanasana
Balasana
Supta padangusthasana
Adho mukha svanasana

All these therapies and medicines show miraculous effect on the patients suffering from cerebral palsy.

(p. S: as every human being is different according to ayurveda, all have different cures. So, kindly consult us or an ayurveda doctor before taking any herbal treatments.)

Sir mere father ko paralysis ho gya tha. Brain stroke ke vajah se tha. But ab sab kuch normal hai wo chalne lage hain. But unhe proper dikhai nhi deta aur unka brain pura khali khali sa lagta hai. Jada awaz bhi unhe taqlif deti hai. Pls kuch bataiye sir.

Hi, thnx for choosing lybrate. Your father's dimness of vision can per se be due to stroke or there can be some eye problems. First of all you hv to get his eyes checked by an ophthalmologist. He has to take some aspirin/ clopidogrel if there was evidence of ischaemic stroke otherwise atorvastatin. Good control of blood sugar & bp is also required.
