I am suffering from migraine from last few years. I could not find any solutions to that. I haven't got any treatment but it comes and goes suddenly. Won't let me eat frozen food. please help.

You seem to have migraine triggered by frozen foods. You should definitely avoid them. Migraine headache is characterised by unilateral pulsating headache associated with nause/vomiting and photophobia / phonophobia. There are triggers for migraine like sun exposure, certain foods or smell, lack of sleep, excess caffeine etc. The triggers are variable for different patients. Migraine attacks can be managed by simple painkillers like paracetamol but in resistant cases drugs like Sumatriptan may be needed. For frequent episodes of migraine preventive medications are to be taken by prescription. There are various medicines available for this and if control is not achieved with one medicine another drug is to be added. Don't take painkillers daily for migraine headaches, it's better to take the preventive medicines. Painkillers on long term basis can further aggravate the migraine headache into Medication Overuse Headace (Read my health tip on Medication Overuse Headache) Follow these lifestyle changes to avoid migraine headache 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3. Do not consume excess caffeine / carbohydrates / alcohol or smoke. 4. Exercise daily (aerobics and cardiovascular) 5. Identify your headache trigger and try to avoid it. 6. Do pranayam daily. 7. Acupuncture treatment has shown some benefits in migraine. You can consult a pain specialist for therapies like dry needling or botulinum injections for your problem. Consult again for further queries.

I'm suffering from migraine, it's along with me for the past 3 years, even now. Suggest me the ways, so I cn get cured at earliest.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
You can not cure migraine but you can prevent blowing up of symptoms or a migraine attack. You can prevent it by natural remedies are a drug-free way to reduce migraine symptoms. These at-home treatments may help prevent migraines, or at least help reduce their severity and duration. 1) avoid migraine triggers food -chocolates, ice creams, processed foods, pickled foods, beans,dried fruits, cultured dairy products such as buttermilk, sour cream, and yogurt etc 2) Inhaling lavender essential oil may ease migraine pain. People who inhaled lavender oil during a migraine attack for 15 minutes experienced faster relief than those who inhaled a placebo. Lavender oil may be inhaled directly or applied diluted to the temples. 3) Acupressure is the practice of applying pressure with the fingers and hands to specific points on the body to relieve pain and other symptom. You can try taking two tablets of pcm 500 mg at once to relieve pain. You can also take sumatriptans, analgesics,NSAIDS etc in acute attack.

The patient had fits and was rushed to the hospital. The doctors said that it was due to depression and high cholesterol. The MRI report is available. Can a patient experience fits in such a condition? Should we take a second opinion with a Neurologist?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Please take a neurologist opinion. There is no need to rush the patient to hospital during a fit. Please give first aid. F\Mostly fits will stop by itself in 3-5 minutes. If it does not stop and if fits occurs again, then rush to hospital. Depression may not be a reason for a 'real' fits. High cholesterol by its blockage of brain blood tubes can cause fits. It will be clea, r once you consult neurologist along with a person who observed the patient fully during the fit.
