Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome - Symptoms And Treatment

Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome - Symptoms And Treatment

Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome is the name given to the symptoms seen in you if you consume heavy doses of alcohol frequently and then suddenly quit or reduce your alcohol intake considerably. These symptoms may surface anytime between six hours to a few days after you last drank.

Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome:

All these symptoms may worsen over a few days and may even last till a few weeks.

What is the root cause?

Alcohol arouses your nervous system. In case you are a heavy drinker, your body gradually gets dependent on alcohol, and cannot adapt too easily to the lack of alcohol after you have abruptly quit. This is the root cause of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS).

Who is at risk?

You are at the maximum risk of AWS if you are an alcohol addict, or you cannot gradually cut down on its intake.

How do doctors diagnose AWS?

Usually, doctors will search for a few symptoms in you, like irregular heart rate, dehydration, fever, and tremors or minor fits. A toxicology screen also helps your doctor finding out the levels of alcohol in your body.

How is AWS treated?

Treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms. Usually are:

1. Home Care - Mild symptoms of AWS can be treated at your home. You need to go for your regular routine checkups and tests. You may also have to go to rehabilitation programs for recovering alcoholics.

2. Hospitalization - If your symptoms are more severe, you may have to be treated in a hospital, where you will be monitored and kept on a fluid diet to help prevent dehydration.

3. Medications - You can also be treated with sedatives.

Do you recover fully?

Usually, chances are that you will fully recover from AWS. If you quit drinking, take your medicines on time, and lead a healthy life thereafter. However, sleep disturbances and fatigue may persist. But, if you have severe symptoms of AWS, you should seek medical care as soon as possible to prevent any further fatal complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

My aunt wanted to have kid with me .so we used to have sex daily. To achieve pregnancy. Can we continue sex .or should I stop it because she is pregnant. Can I have sex with her until baby is born.

Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. So it is completely safe to sex during pregnancy.

Sexologist, Panchkula
Any pain during pregnancy could be serious problem. So avoid any hard work and take rest as much as possible. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises.

Hello I am a female 21 years married and 1 and half year back trying to conceive due to irregular periods pcos I could not conceive plzz help me I tried clomid meprate and many antioxidant but my periods r still irregular please help me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO
IVF Specialist, Mumbai
Hello, Please note that having PCOS and weight of 100kg will definitely interfere with your conception. You need to reduce your weight by doing exercise which will help you to improve your ovulation and thus your menstrual irregularity. Also it will be advisable to do follicular monitoring along with clomid or injections which in turn will help you to form more follicles and increase chance of conception.

My friend is pregnant in one month is not married women want abortion the pregnancy please give help for abortion.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Hi lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Terminating a pregnancy can be safely and effectively done by medicines these days upto 9 weeks. After that you would need to opt for surgical procedures. However I would suggest you take these medicines under medical supervision as incorrect technique and dosage can result in severe side effects and even incomplete abortion. All the best.

Hello Today is my 11th day and I did ovulation test today with ovulation kit. I got 2 lines one is light and the other is dark. "c" line is dark nd "t" line is light. I wanna ask whether m ovulating or not? And what is best time to do ovulation test early morning or in day time?

MD (Hom.), BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
For the result to be positive the" T" line colour should be equal or greater than the "C" line colour. Faint line in T do not indicate a positive ovulation test. Early morning sample will not help. Take sample during the daytime.

As weather is changing, new water is getting mixed with old water and due to water pits and water storage in and around houses; there is increasing chance of mosquito breeding. Try to keep surroundings clean, avoid pits around houses. There is increased risk of diarrhea so drink clean and hygienic water to avoid many viral diseases.

Dear Sir/madam, By doing oral sex (licking vagina) can I give satisfaction to my wife? Because she likes only this.

Diploma in Family Medicine, M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Sexologist, Pune
Well, if she likes and you like it. There is no problem at all. Always have clear discussion with your partner. Pleasing the partner in certain ways may rip you a lot of benefits in the future. Just make sure, it does not become just an one-sided gesture!

Contraceptive pills are to be taken daily one at bed time. The pack contains 21 tablets. Start from the fifth day of menses one tablet a day for 21 days,stop for a week,start a new pack from 29 th day.Continue like this any number of months. She has to take one tablet daily whether she had sex or not ,only one tablet in a day even if had sex more times. Probably she is taking a tablet on the day of sex only. That may be the reason of irregular bleeding.

Herniated Intervertebral Disc Disease

The vertebral column (backbone) is made up of 33 vertebrae separated by spongy disks and classified into four distinct areas. The cervical area consists of seven bony parts in the neck; the thoracic spine consists of 12 bony parts in the back area; the lumbar spine consists of five bony segments in the lower back area; five sacral bones (fused into one bone, the sacrum); and four coccygeal bones (fused into one bone, the coccyx).

Between each vertebra is a fibrous disc with a jelly-like core. These cushions of cartilage allow the body to accept and dissipate load across multiple levels in the spine and still allow for the flexibility required for performing normal activities of daily living. As the body twists, bends, flexes and extends, the intervertebral discs are constantly changing their shape.

Causes

When discs degenerate, becoming less supple due to age or back strain, the disc may prolapse — squeezing out some of the soft core. This loss of cushioning may cause pressure on local nerves and cause back or neck pain, numbness or tingling in the arms, or searing pain down one or both legs. If the prolapse is severe it can damage the spinal cord. As a part of the aging process the discs lose their high water content and their ability to cushion the vertebrae. This is called degenerative disc disease. As the discs deteriorate, the spine can initially become less stable. Bony spurs can develop as a result of this instability and can cause pressure on nearby nerves leading to leg or arm pain. Narrowing of the neural canal by these bony spurs is known as degenerative spinal stenosis.

By the age of 35, approximately 30% of people will show evidence of disc degeneration at one or more levels. By the age of 60, greater than 90% of people will show evidence of disc degeneration at one or more levels on MRI. In some patients, this disc degeneration can be nearly asymptomatic; in others, disc degeneration can lead to intractable back pain.

The outer layer of the discs themselves can also tear. When this occurs, the inner, gelatinous layer can herniate out (a “herniated” or “ruptured” disc) and also cause pressure on an adjacent nerve. If the herniation occurs in the neck and causes pressure there, it can cause pain that radiates into the shoulder and arm; if it occurs in the lower back, the pain produced can radiate down into the hip and leg.

Symptoms

Patients with disc disease in the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine experience variable symptoms depending on where the disc has herniated and what nerve root it is pushing on. The following are the most common symptoms of lumbar disc disease:

Intermittent or continuous back pain (this may be made worse by movement, coughing, sneezing, or standing for long periods of time)Spasm of the back musclesSciatica — pain that starts near the back or buttock and travels down the leg to the calf or into the foot.Muscle weakness in the legsNumbness in the leg or footDecreased reflexes at the knee or ankleChanges in bladder or bowel function

The symptoms of lumbar disc disease may resemble other conditions or medical problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.

In rare cases, patients with large disc herniations may experience weakness in an extremity or signs of spinal cord compression such as difficulty with gait, in coordination, or loss of bowel/bladder control.

Treatment

Treatment for disc disorders must be closely tailored to the patient, based on:

The history and severity of their pain whether or not they have had prior treatments for this problem and how effective they have been and whether or not there is any evidence of neurologic damage such as weakness of an extremity or the loss of reflexes

Some of the treatments used include

Activity modification patient education on proper body mechanics (to help decrease the chance of worsening pain or damage to the disc)Physical therapy, which may include ultrasound, massage, conditioning, and exercise programs
Weight control medications (to control pain and/or to relax muscles)

Hello Dr. my wife is 46 days pregnant for second child. What diet she should follows in these days Should she eat cashews and almond or dry fruits?

Certificate Course in Fitness Management
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Faridabad
Yes, Nuts and seeds are very helpful in providing strength and energy to the mother to be. In addition, drink plenty of water. Most important is to eat enough to gain weight regularly-especially if your wife is thin. It is also important to eat well. Eat fruits and food with a lot of natural fiber. The body needs food rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, especially iron. NOTE: Pregnant women should not eat papayas, which contain natural estrogen and may create the danger of miscarriage.
