dear ,u have not mentioned clearly the symptoms,,as to at what times headache occurs,whether associated with vomiting sensation..whether unilateral or bilateral..... a CT scan of head would be preferable before doing spinal fluid test ...the spinal fluid test is safe...one can experience heaviness in head for some hours after spinal fluid test ..remain in lying down position for 1/2 - 1 hour after the procedure

Hye. Thank you for your query. It's possible you are keeping very long gaps in between meals or skipping meals. This causes a drop in energy levels leading to this kind of reaction. This then causes you to overeat in the next meal. Try to eat frequent regular meals. Avoid a gap of more than 3 hours in between two meals.

I am giving some health tips for Migraine headache •1.You can turn off light for some time •2.Apply hot or cold compresses to your head or neck. •Ice packs have a numbing effect, which may dull the sensation of pain. •Hot packs and heating pads can relax tense muscles. •3.Warm showers or baths may have a similar effect. •4.You can take Tea or coffee( but not excess) 5.Sleep well Here are some tips to encourage sound sleep. Establish regular sleep hours. •Minimize distractions. •Your eating habits can influence your migraines. •Be consistent. Eat at about the same time every day. Don't skip meals.

The fact that you have been taking anti anxiety drugs for more than 10 years and still suffer from migraine, anxiety and depression, means your problems are more due to your personality factors than physical causes. You seem to have a very low self esteem and are low on self confidence. You will need to go through intensive psychotherapy. Consult a good psychologist/ psychotherapist, who can help you understand your fears, mental blocks and help you overcome your low self confidence. Medicine can give you temporary relief, unless you change your thought process, you will continue to have difficulties. To begin with, focus on what'you' want in - stop thinking about what people expect you to do. Have a routine for yourself- healthy diet, lots of water (at least 8-10 glasses a day), some physical exercise- yoga, walking, aerobics, dancing- whatever is to your liking. Think positive and set daily goals for yourself.

Its primarily due to disturbances in frontal cortical regions, the basal ganglia, and the midbrain locomotor region, though palliative treatment is available requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

I have been diagnosed with peripheral neuritis. I do not have diabetes. My hands and feet numb and I tend to fall often what should I do

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I need your detailed history and all relevant investigations because you have mentioned limb symptoms with frequent episodes of falling down as well. It usually happens with a cervical or a brain pathology, but you have been diagnosed as a peripheral neuritis case. Can you please send me your treatment papers and relevant investigations so that I can see and advise accordingly, because if it is peripheral neuritis or a brain issue, then a neurophysician is best doctor for your case. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

I am a 30 year old male, I experienced a partial seizure 6 years ago and I'm under medication for the same. I was taking Levipil 500 mg tablets twice a day, my doctor has gradually reduced my dosage to Levipil 250 mg once a day. Now my doctor has stopped medicine. What are the possible side effects I may experience after stopping the medicine? I feel dizzy, loss of control and shivering sometimes are they related to the condition of stopping medicine?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Neurology, Fellowship in Stroke
Neurologist, Kolkata
If your doctor has decided to stop the drug, it must be after considering your risk is low for recurrence. Normally we don't see any problem after levipil is withdrawn. But report to your doctor once you are facing them.
