Migraine needs proper treatment to irradicate from its roots. I can prescribe you medicine only after getting details history of your complaint n whatever treatment uptil now you have taken. Ginger is a home remedy for instant relief. It helps reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, hence easing the pain. And since it stimulates digestion, it also helps quell the nausea which occurs during migraines. 1 SPOON OF CRUSHED GINGER WITH EITHER HONEY OR SUGAR U CAN TAKE. Thank you.

Dear Lybrate User, Tingling, tingly, pins and needles feelings can be caused by a number of factors including: Remaining in the same position (seated or standing) for a long time. Injury or pressure on a nerve (for example, a back injury cancause numbness in the legs or feet, and a neck injury can cause numbness in the arms and hands).

DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 10 gm of ajwain seeds along with 10 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. C) take 5gm of fine powder of nutmeg along with triplala juice at night before sleep…. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Hello doctor I have insomnia problem I sleep very less please help me. Suggest any medicine.
Medical Causes of Insomnia There are many medical conditions (some mild and others more serious) that can lead to insomnia. In some cases, a medical condition itself causes insomnia, while in other cases, symptoms of the condition cause discomfort that can make it difficult for a person to sleep. Examples of medical conditions that can cause insomnia are: Nasal/sinus allergies Gastrointestinal problems such as reflux Endocrine problems such as hyperthyroidism Arthritis Asthma Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease Chronic pain Low back pain Medications such as those taken for the common cold and nasal allergies, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid disease, birth control, asthma, and depression can also cause insomnia. In addition, insomnia may be a symptom of underlying sleep disorders. For example, restless legs syndrome—a neurological condition in which a person has an uncomfortable sensation of needing to move his or her legs—can lead to insomnia its better to meditate................. spending time with friends relaxing listening to music going for an holiday trip............. avoiding unnecessary tensions........... avoid drinking coffee

Hii lybrate-user. The testicular pain might also be related to disc compressing l1 root, the scrotal skin has dermatome l1, but also consult a surgeon for a detailed testicular examination and abdominal examination. Mri lumbosacral spine with screening of whole spine will reveal a disc compressing l1 root.

some tips for headache relief: Close your eyes and rest. ... Massage your neck and temples. ... Warm up your neck Try putting a heating pad or a warm cloth around your neck and the base of your skull to ease tension headaches. ... Relax. ... Minimize stress. ... Watch what you eat and drink. If you have a migraine, place a cold pack on your forehead. Ice cubes wrapped in a towel, a bag of frozen peas, or even a cold shower may lessen the pain. Keep the compress on your head for 15 minutes, then take a break for 15 minutes.
