I am from Mumbai .I'm suffering from migraine since last 2 or 3 months .Dr. Please Can you make me sure that what is the treatment for this?

Migraine is a kind of relapsing headache. Its symptoms include - episodic unilateral or bilateral, severe and pulsating headaches, associated at times with nausea and vomiting, relieved momentarily on rest or taking medications and aggravated by precipitating factors. The treatment of migraine is mainly done for relief from acute headache attacks and later treatments to prevent future relapses. Also treatment of factors which tend to cause relapses is also important. Consult a headache specialist for a composite and complete treatment. You may contact me online for further queries and assistance in treatment in this regard.

Scars and marks can be easily treated with laser procedures, MDA or chemical peels depending upon what exactly your skin requires. You should visit a Dermatologist for an adequate prescription and treatment. Avoid Sun exposure to get rid of blackness or apply a sunscreen with spy 25-30. Scrub your face twice a week.

I am getting headache, it is a stress related headache (migraine). What is the precautions to be taken. I am 58 male. I am using thyroid tab for last 12. Months. I am using homoeo med for the last 7 years. Please suggest me.

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Kolkata
Hello, If you are taking proper homoeopathic medicine for headache and not improving then some maintaining causes persist and those are interfering in the way of treatment. So improve your life style like diet, weight, sleep etcs and also monitor your thyroid level. But besides those we need to know whether it is only stress related or something else. Thank you.

Is there an increased risk of migraine for women who choose to take estrogen for menopausal symptoms?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Not actually. In fact theoretically a fall in estrogen triggers migraine. For menopausal symptoms if you are advised hormonal replacement therapy, please work out a suitable combination of hormone therapy (not only estrogen) with your prescribing doctor.
