Hs. I'll try and outline some general advice to help you improve your sleep habits. The concept is called sleep hygiene. Question 1) what is your height and weight? 2) do you snore? has anyone told you that you do? 3) under normal circumstances, do you sleep continuously through the night? or do you wake up once or more? 4) do you have any difficulties breathing? 5) what would you say is the quality of your sleep? do you wake up every morning feeling refreshed? 6) under normal circumstances. What are your sleep timing like? I see that you work at night? when do you try to sleep? how many hours do you get? 7) can you describe your sleep environment? is it dark? is it quiet? what is the temperature in the room? 8) do you smoke? drink alcohol? or drink energy drinks like redbull to stay awake? 9) do you have any medical conditions for which you are undergoing treatment or have undergone treatment in the last 5 years? 10) do you take any medications or supplements (vitamins etc) on a regular basis? I will leave the questioning there for now lets talk about a concept called" sleep hygiene. Your brain needs sleep to repair and strengthen the various neural pathways that get used during the day. Sleep is actually an active process for the brain. Unlike your muscles and your other organs. Your brain can actually be more active at certain times when you are asleep. My reason for telling you this is that the circumstances under which you try to go to bed are very important. Sleep is controlled by something called the'circadian rhythm, you can think out it as the'sleep cycle. That sleep cycle is controlled by various internal and external influences. One of the most important is light! light controls when we go to sleep and when we wake up to a great extent. So. If you try to fall asleep in a room that is very bright! like a room with the curtains open in the afternoon. Then your brain will be receiving the wrong signals and you will not sleep. The concepts and advice given by the us. National sleep foundation are a good set of guidelines you can use to help improve your sleep hygiene.

Dreaming is a symbolic language designed to communicate your inner wisdom to you while you are asleep. The part of your subconscious that processes dreams -- your dream self -- sends messages as symbols and images, which in turn conveys ideas or situations in a visual language. While many agree about what dreams are, there is still debate over why we actually dream. Most experts believe we dream to assist the body with rest, repair and rejuvenation. Others speculate that we dream for psychological reasons: to reexamine the day's events, to reduce and relieve stress, and to provide an outlet for pent-up emotions. Since the dreams are disturbing your sleep so you should learn some techniques of meditation, take rest, be hydrated, take nutritious and balanced diet, go for a walk or do some exercises. This will keep your thoughts calm. We have some good homeopathic medicines based on the types of dreams you see which prevents your sleep. So do consult some good homeopath and for my consultation contact me.

Hi, I had a big panic attack years ago and it has not left me ect I can not shake it off like the mind is trapped in time warp also bad insomnia. I have tried anti depressants and EDMR treatment where they wave a stick in front of your eyes and 11 sessions of TMS all which did not work.

Hello. Im sorry to hear that most techniques haven't worked. It is ideal to explore whether the event leading to this panic attack was something major and has left a scar in the mind or the panic attack itself was at such a time and place that the embarrassment has gotten etched in your memory? Try shifting gears. Start with some "self help" and lifestyle change. If it still doesn't work, perhaps go in for second opinion. Good luck.

Some measures you can take to relieve muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include: resting the area of the body where you are experiencing aches and pains. taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen (Advil) applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Dear, Please note it seems you are primarily having an arthritic pain and sensory symptoms are accompanying it or both may accompany each other in some diseases. However we need to take a great more detail than what information you have provided to us: whether you have multiple joint pain if yes whether it is small (like joints of fingers) or large (like knee) is it associated with swelling or not ; whether you have early morning stiffness etc. So please attend your doctor who may guide you for a Rheumatologist or a Neurologist as required. Regards.

Alzheimer's - How To Treat It?

With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.

Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.

Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:

  1. Being confused about places, people, and times
  2. Inability to find the right words during conversations
  3. Regular objects are misplaced
  4. Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
  5. Mood swings
  6. Personality changes
  7. Inability to organise thoughts
  8. Not able to make the right decisions
  9. Repetitive talks and actions
  10. Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
  11. Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
  12. Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
  13. Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)

Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and poor lifestyle choices.

Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.

Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance.
