Hello lybrate user I think you are asking about headache. It's depending upon the site or area of head. As you have already mentioned regular sitting work on computer system. So firstly it can be neck pain because of long time your neck having or attained same position. It gets muscle weakness and pain. Secondly due to over stressed eyes like vision problem can also create head pain but surrounding eyes and forehead. If headache has been not treated it tends to be converted in migraine. You can consult to good physician.

Epilepsy - 5 Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy - 5 Common Facts About It!

Over 60 million people around the world suffer from epilepsy. This can be described as a brain disorder that causes seizures. However, it is important to note that seizures are not synonymous with epilepsy. A patient may be diagnosed with epilepsy only if there have two or more seizures that are unrelated to other medical conditions. Here are five facts you should know about epilepsy.

An epileptic person can have many different types of seizures.
Seizures are caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain cells. There are many different types of seizures. Seizures can make a person make abnormal movements, make him or her stare into space, make him or her unable to speak or make them shake vigorously and fall to the ground. Some seizures are easy to identify while others may go unnoticed.

Epilepsy can be caused by many factors
There are a number of factors that can cause epilepsy. The most common amongst them are - deprivation of oxygen at the time of birth, brain infections, head injuries, stroke, neurological diseases, tumors and genetic disorders. Infections can also cause epilepsy. In some cases, the actual cause may be difficult to identify.

A healthy diet, protecting the head from trauma (by wearing a helmet) and exercising can help prevent epilepsy. Expectant mothers should also follow a healthy prenatal plan.

The effect of epilepsy is much more in women as compared to men
Both men and women are susceptible to epilepsy. However, epilepsy can be harder to manage in women. This is because of their hormone structure. Pregnancy can also make epilepsy hard to manage and the seizures could also affect the baby. Thus, it is essential for pregnant mothers with epilepsy to take extra precautions and follow their doctor’s advice strictly.

Epilepsy can be treated
Though epilepsy cannot be cured, there are many ways of treating epilepsy. The best form of treatment depends on the patient’s medical history and neurological exams. Medication to stop seizures is the most common form of treatment. A special diet may also be prescribed along with this. In some cases, surgery may also be advised. Nerve stimulation may also be used to treat this condition.

Epilepsy is not contagious
Anyone can suffer from epilepsy but it cannot be transferred from one person to another. Thus, if you see someone having a stroke, you must immediately try to help them without worrying about your own health. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Veniz SR should not be stopped suddenly. Gradual tapering and stopping this drug would prevent withdrawal symptoms.

Delay Alzheimer's by Drinking 3 Cups of Coffee a Day

Love coffee? Here's a compelling reason to keep drinking it.

The Journal of Alzheimer's Disease published a study that demonstrated some significant results related to coffee and cognitive function.

Researchers in Florida measured the amount of caffeine in participants by taking blood samples and testing the caffeine plasma levels. They also tested participants' cognitive functioning at the start of the study and categorized people as fitting into one of three categories:
Normal cognitive functioning- Overall, memory, judgment and decision-making were intact.
Mild Cognitive Impairment- Participants displayed some difficulty in cognitive functioning. Mild cognitive impairment often develops into Alzheimer's disease.
Dementia- The individual displayed clear impairments in cognition such as memory deficits, communication, judgment, etc.
After a period of two to four years, researchers found that a higher level of caffeine plasma (greater than 1200 ng/ml) was correlated with the following results:

Stable cognitive functioning (no cognitive decline) was maintained in those who began the study with normal cognition.
A lack of progression to dementia occurred in the participants who began the study in the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) category. This is especially notable because there is usually a high rate of progression from MCI to dementia.
Additionally, a higher rate of progression from mild cognitive impairment to dementia was seen in participants whose caffeine intake was lower.

Can I be cured of epileptic fits? Actually it comes not by birth but before 8 years when I got fever my mom took me to one R.M.P clinic doctor he didn't given me antinode but another medicine then I got reaction then epilepsy came then I shown in hospital and im in medication after 3 years I neglected tablets which were given by physician then again it comes now (WHEN IT COMES IT WILL COME ON LIPS SHAKING I will be in conscious only lips shakes that's it) I'm using time to time now nothing I'm free I'm in medication I'm using eptoin 100 mg morning flouvite 5 mg afternoon in night eptoin 150 mg frisium 10 mg Can I be cured of epileptic fits? (Seizure) and Any problem in Future about this Epilepsy?

DNB (Neurosurgery) , MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Pune
When epilepsy is uncontrolled inspite of taking adequate and appropriate medications, there are surgical treatments available to deal with it effectively. It is called as epilepsy surgery. When a part of brain which is responsible to producing fits can be recognised well on Mri as well as electrophysiological investigations, it can safely be removed using surgical means and at times epilepsy can be cured. But only after taking into consideration whole of the clinical scenario, one can tell whether a patient can be cured from epilepsy or better control can be achieved. You need to consult an epileptologist to know more about these options. Regards.

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Autism?

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Autism?

Autism is a condition that afflicts many children around the globe and continues well into adulthood, with far-ranging and lifelong repercussions. While there is no permanent cure for this debilitating condition, one can turn to a number of treatments and management methods in order to take care of the symptoms and suppress the onset of the same. Let us find out more about the causes of the condition as well as the diagnosis, diet and homeopathic treatment for the same.

Causes

This is a neurological disease that children are usually born with. It may arise due to genetic or environmental factors. This is a complex ailment that has a bearing on the social and communication skills of the child and it affects his/her development as the child grows into an adult. Intake of drugs and other kinds of harmful medications during pregnancy are the most notable causes of this disease, while a faulty carrier gene could also bring on this condition in many cases. Exposure to many kinds of chemicals may also lead to the onset of this condition.

Diagnosis

While there are no lab tests that can determine the presence of this condition, doctors usually conduct the diagnosis on the basis of the symptoms, including constant tantrums, repetition of words as well as slurring, and over sensitivity towards pain. Further, a clinical evaluation based on the milestones touched by the child in the development process will also be studied carefully in order to make the right diagnosis. Screening tests can help determine the presence of this condition.

Diet

There is a large body of medical practitioners who hold the belief that the diet of a patient can have a large bearing on how he or she reacts to autism and its symptoms. As per many medical studies, it is known that these patients are not able to digest gluten and casein very well, which is why they should eliminate the same from their diet. Therefore, the patients must stick to gluten-free food like rice, vegetables, corn, soy and even fruits. Further, they should even try to avoid casein-rich food like dairy.

Homeopathic Treatment

These medicines should always be prescribed by a doctor. There are about 20 different types of medicines available to treat and manage the symptoms, especially if they arise due to genetic reasons. These may be prescribed for a period of six months to one year at a time, depending on the severity of the symptoms. The Houston Homeopathy Method has been known to give relief to over hundreds of children suffering from this ailment. Constitutional homeopathy can also be used in such cases so as to bring some respite from the symptoms. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
