Dear, many people become forgetful as they become older. This is common and is often not due to dementia. There are also other disorders such as depression and an underactive thyroid that can cause memory problems. Dementia is the most serious form of memory problem. It causes a loss of mental ability, and other symptoms. Dementia can be caused by various disorders which affect parts of the brain involved with thought processes. Most cases are caused by alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, or dementia with lewy bodies. Symptoms of dementia develop gradually and typically become worse over a number of years. The most important part of treatment for dementia is good-quality support and care for the person with dementia and for their carers. In some cases, treatment with medicines may be helpful. Please consult a physician first.

My body is too weak. I don't know y but it was too weak. My hands are shaking all the time. I use to smoke ciggrates. Does. It is reason for that.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Hye, Thanks for the query. Weakness is due to poor nutrition and shaking of hands is a withdrawal symptom of smoking. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well.    Exercise at least thrice a week.

My nephew aged 11 years, has seizure since last month. Doctors diagnosed it epilepsy. We started medicines but seizures occurs on every 2 & 3 days. Mostly during seizure his eyes goes upward and his body has vibrates as electric shocks. Once after seizure his body shocked many times. We asked him what is this. He said my nerves are jaults from inside. We want to know is it epilepsy or not. What should we do at the time of seizures. Eagerly waiting for your reply. At this time he is taking 2 medicines named valparin 200 & levecitram. Thanks.

The description provided by suggests that your nephew has epileptic seizures; however, one point - when he says my nerves are jaults from inside' make this sound false. Please find out this: is he aware of his surroundings even when he has whole body jerking, or jerking on both sides of the body? if his body is jerking on both sides but he maintains awareness or is able to interact, then it is highly likely that it is a pseudo-seizure. Since he is only 11 years old, this may be due to situational anxiety. If he loses awareness during the fit, or if they involve only one half of his body, then it may be a true epileptic seizure. And the final answer can only come from an eeg which is done at the time when the episode is going on - which is not always possible! hence, we must always keep our minds open, make multiple observations, perform several eegs, treat with the presumption of epilepsy (giving benefit of doubt), and so on.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Hello Sir/Madam, I am 31 year old. I have Brain Tumor. It had detected 6-7 months back. About its symptoms i am suffering from headache which is unbearable around tumor area.

Brain tumours outcome depends on the type of the tumour. But it should be operated upon first , removed as much is safely possible and then act according to the biopsy report. U should not delay the treatment by any alternative medicine because the more delay u are doing the worse it would become. Consult a Neurosurgeon asap near u and get it operated

I am sharing the report of biopsy below. Please let me know what the report says? D2 biopsy comprises of multiple sucosal fragments with maintained crypt to villous ration. There is no increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes. Lamina propria shows moderate chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate. No luminal parasites seen in the sections examined. Impression: Non-specific chronic duodenitis.

Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

Hello lybrate-user, fortunately you are with positive mind, definitely you should do exercises on order to prevent further dystrophy (wasting of muscles) and to build up strength, endurance and overall functional independence. Best advice for you is hire a physiotherapist who can treat you at your home after a proper assessment. For your left leg depending upon the evaluation and current status of your condition, you may need to do quadriceps strengthening, hamstrings strengthening, gastroc-soleus strengthening, adductor & abductor strengthening, tfl and gluteus medius maximus strengthen, gemellus superior/inferior strengthening. For right hand do elbow flexor and extensor strengthening, wrist flexor extensor strengthening, finger strengthening. Hope it helps. Take care.
