Dear lybrate user, pinched nerve also called disc herniation, if in neck then also called cervical radiculopathy. The treatment depends on current pain, extent of compression and grade of herniation. If it is mild protrusion without neuropathy then conservative management should be sufficient. Many times it is not, then image guided epidural advised for immediate relief, modulation of nerves and disc. If there is bigger protrusion or protrusion with neuropathy, you might be advised nucleoplasty or endoscopic discectomy and in advanced stage of herniation open spine surgery advised. What you can do is consult interventional pain specialist trained with advancement or orthopedician trained in spine for evaluation and further treatment. Regards.

Your doctor is right about many things but I recommend that you meet with a counselor too. That person will teach you a lot of skills and techniques to deal with yoru problem along with the help of the medication. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Hemiplegia is the term used to denote a condition wherein one half of the body gets completely paralysed. An injury to either side of the brain can cause hemiplegia on that particular side, leaving it completely paralysed. A stroke can also result in this condition. Other causes of hemiplegia include health conditions like diabetes, inflammation of the blood vessels, migraine syndrome, etc. A person suffering from hemiplegia has difficulty in walking and loses balance as he tries to walk. It can cause difficulty in swallowing, vision and speech problems, numbness in one half of the body, loss of bladder and bowel control, etc. The memory may become poor and the affected person suffers from depression. Homeopathic treatment for hemiplegia uses natural medicines that are very beneficial in treating the symptoms in the patient. These remedies do not cause any side-effects and are safe for long term use. there are about hundreds of remedy for hemiplagia. detailed history taking followed by video conferencing will help me to select a remedy for you...

It depends on the diagnosis. Some get seizure free after 3 years of treatment but they still have 30% risk of getting seizure in their later life.
