hi my son age 11 has absent seizures since last several years ,currently he is being given sodium valproate and clonabazam , but absent seizures do continue occassionaly ,in the past dosage was increased but this led to increased level of valporic acid in blood , dosage had to be reduced. plz suggest what to do

Please consult a neurologist. asertain that drugs are taken in adequate dose regularly. 11 year boy may be forgeting or delaberately not taking drugs.so occational seizure. if not then another drug like lamotrigine can also be added. ethosuxmide is another drug which is not available in india.

Brain Stroke - What Factors Can Lead To It?

Brain Stroke - What Factors Can Lead To It?

A stroke, also called cerebrovascular accident (CVA), cerebrovascular insult(CVI), or brain attack, occurs when a part of the brain is deprived of blood flow. When the brain cells are deprived of oxygen they begin to die. When brain cells die, the functions controlled by that part of the brain also stops, which results in different types of disabilities among stroke survivors.

There are two types of strokes

  • Hemorrhagic
  • Ischemic stroke

The first is caused when a brain aneurysm or a weak blood vessel bursts. Most of the time, this type of stroke leads to death. The second one happens when a clot blocks the flow of blood to the brain. Patients suffering from stroke suffer from various side-effects, the most common ones being paralysis or loss of feeling in a certain part of the body, problem in understanding or talking and loss of vision in one side. The side-effects start showing up regularly after a person has had a stroke.

In certain conditions, blood flow to a certain part of the brain stops for only some time and hence the body suffers stroke like symptoms which only last a couple of hours before disappearing. This is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Unfortunately, the effects of a stroke can be debilitating and also permanent. Hence its important to know the symptoms of a stroke and rush the patient to a doctor as soon as possible. Sometimes early treatment can save a lot of damage.

The primary symptoms of stroke are as follows:

  1. Confusion and problems with talking and comprehension
  2. Headache along with alteration of consciousness or vomiting
  3. Numbness of the face, arms or legs, especially on one side of the body
  4. Issue with seeing, in one or both eyes
  5. Inability to walk with stability, including disrupted coordination
  6. Problems with the bladder and bowel control
  7. Acute depression
  8. Body temperature fluctuates, and pain worsens with movement
  9. Paralysis on one side of the body along with fatigue
  10. Problem in expressing or controlling emotions

Risk Factors:

Diagnosis of stroke

Several tests are carried out to determine the type of stroke acquired. They are:

  1. Physical examination, which involves observing the patient's overall condition.
  2. Blood tests
  3. CT scans
  4. MRI scans
  5. Cerebral angiogram
  6. Echocardiograms

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi Puneet... It is very difficult to predict the curability of it... As every individual reacts to treatment differently... I can say that you should try multiple approaches.. Like Homoeopathy with Pranayama... They have chances of doing wonders... How long is not possible to answer without looking at the full case...

Dear sir I am 23 I had seizure last week twice in a day then I started taking allopathy medicine can I shift completely to ayurveda totally so tat I can come out allopathy because allopathy medicine is giving me very much side effects.

MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Khammam
Hello do not stop your seizure medications for yourself as it can provoke a seizure. Newer antiseizure medications have least side effects except for drowsiness. I suggest you to continue allopathic medications. Consult your doctor and discuss about the side effects if required they may change the drug. Take care.

Some medicines are available to relieve the acute pain. But to reduce the chances of getting such headaches you must consult a neurologist and take few medicines regularly.

My hand starts vibrating even I do small hard work or a minor thing like scolding. Is there any solution to overcome these?

It can be due to concentration you give for the work and is not a disease to treat and you make your mind to steady hands while doing things

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It seems that there is some nerve compression at lower back region. I can advise you exactly if I have certain information from you: - 1) a detailed neurological (motor, sensory, deep tendon reflexes) charting done by a trained physical therapist - maybe neurosurgeon's prescription paper can be of advantage and he must have noted down your examination findings. 2) your mri images and reports in an attachment do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
