This is called peripheral neuropathy. Get your blood sugar done as it is a known cause of it. We have to rule out leprosy also, in which you have to take help of a dermatologist.

Establish regular sleep hours. •Minimize distractions. •Your eating habits can influence your migraines. •Be consistent. Eat at about the same time every day. Don't skip meals.

My father who is 52 years of age has been diagnosed of multiple sclerosis but we do not know the basis of it and the cure for it. Can you please help?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, The name multiple sclerosis refers to the multiple scars (or scleroses) on the myelin sheaths. MS results from attacks by an individual’s immune system on his or her own nervous system, and it is therefore called an autoimmune disease. The various expressions of disease can be managed effectively, gently, and safely with Homeopathy. Early intervention with homeopathy can assist in preventing further progress and hence deterioration caused by disease. A complete case history is needed for the prescription. Thank you.

Hello Lybrate user, the symptoms like intense headache, sensitivity to light, sound, and vomiting etc.; are symptoms of migraine headache. Drink plenty of water (8-9 glass per day), have enough sleep,  avoid stress, avoid certain food which triggers headache. Take homeopathy treatment for migraine, it is safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. Homeopathic medicines like Natrum, spige etc works great for headache complaints. Chronic type of headache needs constitutional treatment for complete relief and cure. You can consult me online (audio/video). Message back for first free consultation (excluding medicine and shipping charges). Take care.

I am 27 years oldhand shivering issue, I don't have smoking or drinking habits, how can I cure it & what types of medicine can I take.

Shivering of hands may have a root cause in neurological problems or psychological problems like anxiety disorder, chronic stress etc. And most of the cases are psychogenic. The first thing you have to do is to stop observing or testing your hands for any shivering now and then. In fact, everybody's hands are subject to shiver while stretched and held for a few minutes. If you keep observing or testing with your hands, certainly the problem will increase. Once you stop testing it the problem will disappear on its own accord. You can contact me through Lybrate if you want further help.

This seems to be a cervical problem, your neck and shoulder should have stiffness and problems- this heaviness in hand seems to be due to that. Please go and consult some good Ayurveda Neurologist. Regards.

Is modalert 100 a brain enhancer tablet? One MD doctor said if you take 2 tabs of modalert 100 it works as brain enhancer. But I've read on govt site that it is used to treat sleepiness how can it stimulate brain? Also please suggest me some diet, exercises or any drug that can be used for temporary period to stimulate brain.

Modalert is of questionable significance even in drowsy states. There is no drug to stimulate brain. Please eat healthy diet have positive thoughts and do exercise in fresh air.
