I am 27 years old and suffering with migraine and headache kindly give suggestions.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
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. For more help or instructions please consult. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.

Few diet tips - not to eat fried food items and can eat all green vegetables, moong, chana, dal, rice etc and to apply ghee over chappati and don't apply oil over chappati and to drink milk mixed with turmeric powder twice a day and if possible eat eggs on alternate days and if possible in breakfast eat atleast one bajra ka rotla and eat seasonal fruit and it's better to do physiotherapy treatment on alternate days till recovery.

I have a severe migraine from many days, no tablets are able to control the pain, is there any good way to control it?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, migraine is a form of headache. The pain is usually throbbing, pulsating and bursting in character. At times, the pain is one sided or may involve the whole head. Such pain may last for hours or even days. It is often accompanied by other symptoms like nausea or vomiting. At the same time, there is increased sensitivity to light and sound. The causes of the problem may vary from one patient to another and so will the final choice of the homoeopathic remedy. Prevention tips:- 1. Keep a headache diary: this may help you in identifying the trigger factors such as foods, activities and weather 2. Exercise regularly: regular exercise, yoga and relaxation techniques such as meditation can also be of great help. 3. Keep regular sleep patterns: sleep adequately. Sleeping too much or too less can trigger migraine. 4. Watch out what you eat: foods such as caffeine and chinese foods that contain monosodium glucamate and chocolates cheese are well-known trigger factors. 5. Eat regularly: fasting is a very common trigger in many people. If it is such a factor for you too, make sure that you eat at regular intervals. ***selection of homoeopathic remedy depends upon the totality of your symptoms. So please share your symptoms.

Dear lybrate-user, shivering hands may also be a reason of neural defects. Take ashwagandha churnam with milk twice daily. Take food on proper time. If still problem persists let me know. Have a great day thank you.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Neurology

To prevent stroke in future, management of risk factors of stoke should be done. The reversible risk factors of stroke are ? Being overweight or obese ? Physical inactivity ? Heavy or binge drinking ? Use of illicit drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamines ? High blood pressure ? Cigarette smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. ? High cholesterol. ? Diabetes. ? Obstructive sleep apnea ? a sleep disorder in which the oxygen level intermittently drops during the night. ? Cardiovascular disease, including heart failure, heart defects, heart infection or abnormal heart rhythm. Management of above conditions and lifestyle modification can reduce the risk of stoke significantly.

My brother aged about 25 years met an accident while he was riding on a bicycle. Moped bike hit him, on the spot he fell down, lost his consciousness and vomited, fresh blood continuously bleeding from the right ear for past 3 days, immediately he was admitted in reputed SVIMS hospital in India and the doctors did CT scan and they haven't come to the conclusion what to do, i.e either operation to be done or not, and the doctors were giving steroids and NS frequently, whenever he comes out form drouzy he shouting with pain, and MRI also done today and waiting for reports hence, I request you that, pls let us know that what might be his head condition? And what is the best prevention.

Your brother must have suffered from fracture of skull bones with brain injury/ haematoma or haemorrhage. You haven't mentioned whether he is in ICU/ ventilator or on support systems. Mostly such situations are life threatening. You can't do much in such situation except let doctors do their best. Make sure he is under care of Neurosurgeons and Intensivist (doctors specialised in ICU care). CT scan reports are important for diagnosis and treatment. All the best. Hope he recovers well.

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
