I am a 25 year old and have a headache since last 2.5 months. I have already seen doctors and they told that symptoms match to those of a migraine. I have already taken migraine medicines for over a month. But yet I encounter headache, heavy headedness and nausea daily. I don't understand why is it continuous? How to lower the frequency. I cannot concentrate at my work, at my study. I was going gym for some while which I have quit. My lifestyle is fine but again I always feel tired. Whenever I am alone I feel weirdly lonely and cry often. Are the continuous headaches because of migraine or is there a possibility that I am under depression. I have experienced many lows including a breakup, failure at a competitive exam recently. Should I consult a neurologist or a psychologist. I am not really a weak heart-ed person but I am really worried about my health, my current attitude and my future if things does not change. Kindly suggest.

Hi , firstly, I would like to thank you for having expressed your issues so very clearly. Well, as I understand, you have migraine since last 2.5 months, and you have been taking prothiaden for over a month now. Prothiaden, however, seems to be an anti-depressant and most of the symptoms that you have described like nausea, heavy headedness, headache etc are side effects of prothiaden which usually clear off after couple of weeks. Seemingly, your already existing headache (migraine as diagnosed) is not being helped through your current medication and the side effects of prothiaden probably add to your issues. Furthermore, in the given context, it is likely that anyone would get anxious, stressed out and eventually get into depression. That you feel weird, lonely and cry often, is indicative of you being depressed. I would advise you to meet up your physician whosoever you are consulting at present, and have a review of the treatment progress with no further delay. As there could still be better medications, he/ she may consider changing medication/ dose suitably as appropriate and one that has minimal side effects. At the same time, I would advise you to remain mentally strong as you already are, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be. Yogasanas, pranayams & meditation can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focussed even during these tough times. At the same time, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can help you relax, rejuvenate, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. For a second opinion, you should consult a psychologist if you have not consulted one already. He/ she may advise diagnostics & refer you appropriately as required. Keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies and try enjoying every moment of your life irrespective. Hope this helps. You may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a treatment plan that suits you in particular. All the best.

Hi, I'm 23 years old and me and gf had unprotected intercourse on 8th October (19th day of her cycle. And I didn't ejaculate inside. After that she had her period on 20th October.

If she has had a normal period last month it is unlikely she is pregnant. However best is to do a serum b-Hcg to be very sure.

I feel hungry all the times but if some eatables come in front of me my stomach is full without eating?

I feel hungry all the times but if some eatables come in front of me my stomach is full without eating?
It can be due to improper digestion & gastric problem. Start following these things to improve appetite & disgestion. Start taking amla murabba everyday in the morning. Do take some citrus fruit such as mausami, oranges in between your main meals. Even if you are hungry try to have something very little after every 2 hours.

Hi doctor Im having PCOD problem, and was using aldactone and glycomet along with Ovral L. For the last 4 months as per doctors advice I stopped all the medicines and for the last 2 months I'm not getting my periods. When I consulted the doctor she advised me to take PRIMOLUT N for 5 days twice a day and after getting the periods prescribed me to go on with Ovral L. After taking PRIMOLUT for 3 days, I feel giddiness and so tired. Please advise me can I stop taking PRIMOLUT in 3 days and wait to get the periods.

Sravani you should take at least 5days of primolut to get period. Please try to start other other progesterone tablets to get period if primolut doesn't suit you. If you stop after 3days only you won't get withdrawal bleed.

Hello, I am male, 29 years old. I just got married a month ago. I used to masturbate after every 3 days before my marriage. Moreover, At early age of puberty I started masturbating. Now problems are:- 1. If I do oral sex like kissing, sucking or pressing body parts of wife, I ejaculate within 10 to 20 min after erection. 2. Sometimes, when I put my erected penis in vagina within seconds I ejaculate. 3. If I do sex in and out faster for 5-6 times I feel ejaculating and then I stop doing for 2 min. But after that if I or my wife starts doing sex fast, I ejaculate in 1 min. 4. When my penis is erected I go to bathroom and use climax spray. Within the time frame I come back to bed, my penis is no more harder. And it becomes smaller. 5. Also now after 1st ejaculation, my penis erect after 2 3 hrs. 6. I am unable to satisfy my wife as she only wants to have sex through penis not with fingers. I want to know 100℅ safe medicine which have no side effects. And also no effect on sperms at pregnancy time.

Normal ejaculation time after penetration 9 min. Ejaculation before 1 min from penetration is premature ejaculation. You can use squeeze method. You have to understand that men have a refractory period. This is the time following an orgasm during which a man cannot get another erection. The refractory period varies widely between different men. Some may be able to achieve erection again just a few minutes after orgasm, while others may need hours. Homoepathic treatment cures premature ejaculation without side effects. .you can click on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

Hi. I have regular pain in my legs. I am a lecturer and have to spend 8 hours standing position
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

For diabetes and blood pressure follow a diet low in carbohydrate,low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon what you are taking currently. Get your HbA1c and S Creatinine level also done.
