I am 20 year old and have migraines for last 1 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but haven't got any relief. What should I do now?

BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Migraine headache is characterized by unilateral pulsating headache associated with nausea/vomiting and photo phobia / 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 headache (read my health tips on medication 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. All said and done, one suggestion: please have a thorough discussion before starting off on some medication on your own. Each body is unique and will respond differently to different formulations. With homeopathy, the aim is to treat the individual holistically instead of just removing the symptoms.

Hi, my dad was operated for brain haemorrhage, the operation was successful and clotting was removed, My question is some times he goes into such a deep sleep that he would wake up if we call or pinch him, I tried a lot to make him open his eyes but he won't, he raises his hand and even yarn. Is this common for this kind of surgery or is it a serious neuro issue. Regards,

Hello increased drowsiness in a patient of Brain Hemorrhage could be due to Hyponatremia low sodium. Low glucose or some infection like urine infection. Better you should get done routine tests like Sodium, Blood Sugar, Complete blood count. If these are normal then consult your neurologist / neurosurgeon you may need to repeat your CT scan in that case.

My age is 23 years old. At this age I take suminat 25 or 50 mg for severe migraine 8 to 10 times a month. Is it safe?

Dear reduce migraine by *diet: good dietary habits would help an individual maintain good health and offer immunity from recurring bouts of headaches. Consuming cooked vegetables without oil should be encouraged. Have a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Vegetable juices and soup, fruits and fruit juices including apple, mango, should be taken in ample quantities. Highly-fruit based diet for a day or two can relieve pain. Grapes, lemons, cabbage juice are especially important. Rice, salad and buttermilk can always be consumed. *yoga: simple yoga treatments have been found to serve both as an alternative and as a supplement for dealing with migraine and headaches. Yoga is known to offer both cure and immunity from headaches. Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain. However, for those suffering from severe headache like migraine, any type of exercise can be injurious. *useful herbs -- ginger, brahmi, jatamansi.

Hello lybrate-user, Shaking of muscles after physical activity is due to fatigue or malnourishment. Maybe you are pushing yourself too hard. Your body doesn't have enough energy to perform. If you skipped a meal or didn't eat enough to fuel your muscles, your levels of glucose, or blood sugar, will be too low. In addition to trembling or shaking muscles, you might also have symptoms such as irritability, nervousness, dizziness, confusion and weakness. Eating a small snack that contains carbohydrates or sugar, such as peanut butter and crackers or a glass of orange juice, can help ease the shaking from hypoglycemia. Apart from that consuming excessive amounts of alcohol, alcohol withdrawal, caffeine or certain medications can lead to trembling and shaking, as can stress and anxiety.

My mother 56 years old is on epileptic medication (eptoin 3 tablets daily) since 3 yrs. And wants to discontinue now as there are no seizures. Is it safe to discontinue? If yes then how.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
If your mother is on regular medications with eptoin 300 mg daily for the last three years and has not had any seizure since 3 years. (i. E. Its 3 years complete after she had her last seizure), stopping medications can be considered. However it is always advisable to consult your treating physician to gradually taper the dose according to age, serum drug levels and eeg status. If she has a breakthrough seizure she might have to continue the withdrawn dose.

Avoid all kinds of dairy products, yogurt, chocolate, eggs, citrus fruits, meats, cereals as wheat (bread, pasta, etc.), nuts and peanuts, tomatoes, onions, corn, apples, peaches and bananas. Avoid pickles. Among fruits, you should take cranberries, pears, cherries and pomegranates. Avoid extreme hot and cold conditions. Avoid strong odours, bright lights, smoke or dusts, altitude changes like mountain riding or travelling.

Dear Lybrate User, Migraine *A common neurological syndrome, Migraine is characterized by altered bodily perceptions, severe pounding headaches, nausea and irritability. This pounding or pain usually begins in the forehead, the side of the head or around the eyes and gradually gets worse. Bright lights or loud noises can worsen the condition. The headache can last for two hours or even up to two or three days. *Causes Change in weather conditions, missing a meal, stress, alcohol and certain types of food items are considered to be common causative factors of Migraine. About 50% of women claim that their menstrual periods happen to be a significant trigger. Additionally, allergic reactions, exposure to loud noises or certain odors, smoking, or long exposures to computer screens/televisions could lead to Migraine attacks. Symptoms *Nausea and vomiting *Headache *Irritability *Depression or euphoria *Fatigue *Excessive sleepiness *Craving for certain food items *Altered mood *Constipation or diarrhoea *Increased urination *Stiff muscles (especially in the neck)

I have a problem on insomnia. I get a very weak sleep. A pin drop noise wakens me up. I sleep for hardly 2 hours a day. I tried counting backwards. But I could count from 10000 and reach 0 but didn't sleep. I tried many suggestions from peers to tire my mind but thoughts don't stop. And I am always conscious, anxious about getting things done in time and incidences don't leave my memory. Please suggest me a way to overcome this. Its getting over my mind. And I am growing less capable intellectually day by day.

There are certain things which you can try. Like walk for 10-15 mins before you going to sleep, take banana before sleep, try to read a magazine or try to listen soft music. Sit firstly on bed take some deep breath in with nose expel with mouth. If you dnt feel sleepy do not just lie down on bed. Rather walk in the room. Take dinner atlst 1 hour before your schedule bed time. Don't watch tv or mobiles. Switch off them. There are sooo mny tips that I can give u.if you follow regularly and continued with homoeopathic treatment I think you will be benefited. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate.

I'm suffering from insomnia, please suggest some diet or idea to fight insomnia. Thank you.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.
