I am 50 years old female, having numbness in my left hand and fingers.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Numbness is actually an indication that there is a nerve involvement. These symptoms can happen in diseases like diabetes or when there is compression of a nerve in neck region or anywhere along its course to the hand. So you have to tell me do you have any neck pain or any other s/s like radiating pain from neck region, paresthesias like burning sensations etc? if symptoms are only localized to your hand region then it can be due to just an entrapment neuropathy of a peripheral nerve like median nerve at wrist. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

My left hand was trembling since 4 years. I take various types of medicine for it but the result is zero. What can I do pls help me.

Arachnoiditis genrally causes symptoms of limbs. But arachnoiditis temporal lobe can not cause upper limb problem. Temporal lobe related to mainly ear /speech problems. Hence you need to consult good senior neurophysician. Or send detailed report on private question.

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 associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and 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.

I don't feel any weakness. But my hands always get shivering. What would be the reason behind this?

Headaches due to migraine is very common these days especially in young adults because of there lifestyle and working environment. Sometimes pain is very severe on one side of the head.  So I would recommend you to avoid stress and anxiety, quiet the mind from distractions. Stay calm positive and do deep breathing exercises, listen some music that would give you some relaxation. If pain is severe then place ice pack over forehead and lie down for some time to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full life. Massage your head using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body. You can use mint or clove spray for inhaling in case of headache. If pain is severe you can also apply ginger paste over the painful area. Avoid taking caffeine, alcohol, phenylethylamine (found in chocolate and cheese), tyramine (found in nuts and fermented meats, cheeses, and soy), and aspartame (in many artificially sweetened foods) as sometimes these all exaggerate pain instead use basil leaves tea or ginger tea boiled nicely in water without milk. Regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. Avoid fasting - Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings. Make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. Take min 7 hours of sleep. Make a habit of 20-25 min walking daily along with some meditations. If required then only take pain relieving tablets. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.

This is very rare case and certainly only orthopedic surgeon specialized in neck and shoulder should operate it. But try Yogasans. I know yogasans can relieve you of symptoms and may postpone or avoid surgery if followed meticulously.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. This may have happened because of high blood pressure. A brain haemorrhage must have occurred. The blood inside the brain has created a clot (infarct). Which may have caused this paralysis attack. Take homeopathic medicine lachesis 1m and arnica 1m (along with the allopathic medicine advised in the hospital. Two times daily for a week as a emergency medicine and then consult further for complete recovery.
