Thank you for posting your query. Your headaches could be due to muscle tension headache, which can be treated with proper medications.

I am not a homeopathic doctor and if you are looking for one, you are probably looking at the wrong place here. I understand, however, that you are really concerned about your father and the medications that he is being given that are not improving his condition, and on the contrary maybe making things worse. This may be because of the medications or as a natural course of the disease. I believe his medications need some tweaking so that you get the results that you expect and he recovers. However I can give you suggestions after I evaluate him further and do a more thorough evaluation. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the helpdesk of Lybrate.

Migraine headache is characterised by 1. unilateral pulsating headache 2. associated with nause/vomiting and 3.photophobia / phonophobia. 4.migraine headache increases with daily activities. 5. Without any medication migraine will last for 4 to 72 hours. 6.There are triggers for migraine like sun exposure, certain foods or smell, lack of sleep, excess caffeine etc. The triggers are variable for different patients. Normal headache is generally band like pressure at forehead and temple. It relieves within few hours without medicines. It doesn't increase with daily activities. To treat your headache consult a pain specialist in your city . Diagnosis of type of headache can be easily made by detailed information of your headache pattern. In severe cases MRI scan of brain may be needed. In case of further query consult again.

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. 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. Rest and relax. 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. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

No not at all. Epilepsy isnot controlled by all this home remedies. You have to take medicines suggested by your doctor. Certain things you have to keep in mind always- epilepsy threshold is decreased (i. E. Increase chances of getting fits) whenever you are fasting, not sleeping adequately and in fever, alcohol consumption etc. Thus avoid fasting and consult your doctor during fever. Few things keep in mind that epilepsy itself has very less mortality rate but epilepsy/fits occuring at wrong places can be fetal. It can be controlled by antiepileptic drugs.

Sir or mam if we have unwanted fat in face this indicate a paralysis or bell palsy.
Facial fat in normal people is caused by 1) poor diet with unbalanced nutrition like eating fatty foods carbohydrates salt with less of vitamins 2) dehydration causes face to retain fat 3) alcohol will cause dehydration too. 4) low thyroid levels with weight gain is also responsible 5) genetics like having broad face in family with double chin. Facial paralysis is due to facial nerve damage mainly or from any head injury or head tumour causes symptoms of facial pain, headache difficulty talking, eating, drinking due to muscle twitching. Difficultly closing eye leading to tearing and eye damage, blowing air occur on side. Facial puffiness is not associated in most cases, checking for kidney functions is essential to rule out renal cause.

I am 62 plus. About 12 years back I had a road accident in which there was no serious external injury but I had a flat fall on the road and at that time felt that my spine was fractured because I was not even able to breath properly. After helped by bystanders, gathered courage and with very great difficulty drove back to my home which was 23 kms. After overdose of pain killers, hot fomentation and analgesic massage, I recovered within 3 days and was back on normal routine work. But after that I developed trembling in my hands, when I am under pressure or even a slight tension or anxiety. Gradually it increased and now at times when I am in hurry to do something or to go some where or have even a little pressure apart from hands I feel mild shiver in my whole body and in such situation I feel difficulty in putting my signatures properly. But I drive car without any difficulty even under tremendous pressure when my whole body appears to be not under my conrol. I use to brisk walk for about 5 kms and sprint running for about 500 mts and also some breathing exercise. I am not diabetic. However little hypertensive. No other pathology. Am I developing parkinson? is it curable or otherwise?

If the tremors have appeared after the accident, then you could be suffering from depressive/anxiety illness. But if the tremors are not related to the accident, then it is called benign essential tremors. Visit a psychiatrist/and or a neurologist for effective treatment.
