Dear Sir or Mam How to survive migraine & what are the caution & is there a treatment? Thanks already.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, Fellow in Pain Management, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user. Migraine treatment depends on the frequency and the severity of the attacks. If they are infrequent and occur less than two times a month and if they are not so severe for you then you can take pain killers during attack however If frequent or very severe then you need to take long term treatment or prophylaxis Apart from that you should be relaxed not to take stress on daily issues as stress can increase migraine. To have a good sleep every night Avoid places with bright light and loud sound. Like in parties with loud music. Certain foods like chocolate coffee may increase migraine, but that varies from patient to patient. You need to identify which foods increase your headache and avoid them. Sometimes smell can also increase headache. Yes migraine is controllable to a large extent. As I said if frequent and severe then you should consult a neurologist for long term treatment.

To soften rough hair, use fenugreek seeds. Powder the seeds and add water to make a thick paste. For visible results, apply regularly on the scalp for a month at least. You can also apply warm oil with lime and egg on the scalp. Wrap head in a warm towel. Leave until it cools and wash thoroughly. Repeat twice a week to soften hair.

If you are sure that scar removal creams will not work on the mark, you can go for laser scar removal or surgery. You need to show the mark to a dermatologist to know what will be a better treatment. The cost completely depends on the type of mark. It can be anything between 10 to 50k or even more if you are going to the best known surgeon.

any tablet if you take it works at that time only. the side effects if you face at that time only. for example if you take headache tablet it works on that movements only. next day if again headache comes you need to take again another tablet. previous day tablet it will not work next day. like that you are taken tablets you face the severity and side effects on particular days only. it will not effect on your sexula life. that you have doubt i do one mistake it may be effected or not. it is psychological feeling. so dont think about this matter again. better to marry and enjoy your sexual life. this age is right age for enjoying the sexual life. dont be alone. better to spend most of the time with friends and family members. better to share your personal feelings and problems with closed ones. be sociable and be happy all time. enjoy the masturabtion also.it is also good sexual sign of the normal human being. ok best of luck..

Your wife is not doing anything exceptional for weight loss. All this could be a part of someone's lifestyle. For weight loss you definitely need to streamline your lifestyle by any modification that it may require like altering eating pattern, exercise and stress relief. The real need for weight loss is purely motivation from your end. For personalised diet consultation do get in touch with me privately on lybrate.

DYSPHAGIA (SWALLOWING PROBLEM) IN BRIEF AND IT'S MANAGEMENT

Master of Hospital Administration, Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Speech Therapist, Gurgaon
DYSPHAGIA (SWALLOWING PROBLEM) IN BRIEF AND IT'S MANAGEMENT

What are some signs or symptoms of swallowing disorders?

Several diseases, conditions, or surgical interventions can result in swallowing problems.

General signs may include:

 

  •     Coughing during or right after eating or drinking
  •     Wet or gurgly sounding voice during or after eating or drinking
  •     Extra effort or time needed to chew or swallow
  •     Food or liquid leaking from the mouth or getting stuck in the mouth
  •     Recurring pneumonia or chest congestion after eating
  •     Weight loss or dehydration from not being able to eat enough

As a result, adults may have:

 

  •     Poor nutrition or dehydration
  •     Risk of aspiration (food or liquid entering the airway), which can lead to pneumonia and chronic lung disease
  •     Less enjoyment of eating or drinking
  •     Embarrassment or isolation in social situations involving eating

Most swallowing problems can be treated, although the treatment you receive will depend on the type of dysphagia you have.

Treatment will depend on whether your swallowing problem is in the mouth or throat (oropharyngeal, or 'high' dysphagia), or in the oesophagus (oesophageal, or 'low' dysphagia).

The cause of dysphagia is also considered when deciding on treatment. In some cases, treating the underlying cause, such as mouth cancer or oesophageal cancer, can help relieve swallowing problems.

Treatment for dysphagia may be managed by a group of specialists known as a multidisciplinary team (mdt). Your mdt may include a speech and language therapist (slt), a surgeon, and a dietitian.

High (oropharyngeal) dysphagia

High dysphagia is swallowing difficulties caused by problems with the mouth or throat.

It can be difficult to treat if it's caused by a condition that affects the nervous system. This is because these problems can't usually be corrected using medication or surgery.

There are three main treatments for high dysphagia:

 

  •     Swallowing therapy
  •     Dietary changes and
  •     Feeding tubes

Swallowing therapy

You may be referred to a speech and language therapist (slt) for swallowing therapy if you have high dysphagia.

An slt (speech language therapist) is a healthcare professional trained to work with people with feeding or swallowing difficulties.

Slts use a range of techniques that can be tailored to your specific problem, such as teaching you swallowing exercises.

Dietary changes

You may be referred to a dietitian (specialist in nutrition) for advice about changes to your diet to make sure you receive a healthy, balanced diet.

An slt can give you advice about softer foods and thickened fluids that you may find easier to swallow. They may also try to ensure you're getting the support you need at meal times.

Feeding tubes

Feeding tubes can be used to provide nutrition while you're recovering your ability to swallow. They may also be required in severe cases of dysphagia that put you at risk of malnutrition and dehydration.

A feeding tube can also make it easier for you to take the medication you may need for other conditions.

There are two types of feeding tubes:

  1.     A nasogastric tube - a tube that is passed down your nose and into your stomach
  2.     A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (peg) tube - a tube that is implanted directly into your stomach

Nasogastric tubes are designed for short-term use. The tube will need to be replaced and swapped to the other nostril after about a month. Peg tubes are designed for long-term use and last several months before they need to be replaced.

Most people with dysphagia prefer to use a peg tube because it can be hidden under clothing. However, they carry a greater risk of complications compared with nasogastric tubes.

Minor complications of peg tubes include tube displacement, skin infection, and a blocked or leaking tube. Two major complications of peg tubes are infection and internal bleeding.

Resuming normal feeding may be more difficult with a peg tube compared with using a nasogastric tube. The convenience of peg tubes can make people less willing to carry out swallowing exercises and dietary changes than those who use nasogastric tubes.

You should discuss the pros and cons of both types of feeding tubes with your treatment team.

Low (oesophageal) dysphagia

Low dysphagia is swallowing difficulties caused by problems with the oesophagus.

Medication

Depending on the cause of low dysphagia, it may be possible to treat it with medication. For example, proton pump inhibitors (ppis) used to treat indigestion may improve symptoms caused by narrowing or scarring of the oesophagus. 

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin can sometimes be used to treat achalasia. This is a condition where the muscles in the oesophagus become too stiff to allow food and liquid to enter the stomach.

It can be used to paralyse the tightened muscles that prevent food from reaching the stomach. However, the effects only last for around six months.

Surgery

Other cases of low dysphagia can usually be treated with surgery.

Endoscopic dilatation

Endoscopic dilation is widely used to treat dysphagia caused by obstruction. It can also be used to stretch your oesophagus if it's scarred.

Endoscopic dilatation will be carried out during an internal examination of your oesophagus (gastroscopy) using an endoscopy.

An endoscope is passed down your throat and into your oesophagus, and images of the inside of your body are transmitted to a television screen.

Using the image as guidance, a small balloon or a bougie (a thin, flexible medical instrument) is passed through the narrowed part of your oesophagus to widen it. If a balloon is used, it will be gradually inflated to widen your oesophagus before being deflated and removed.

You may be given a mild sedative before the procedure to relax you. There's a small risk that the procedure could cause a tear or perforate your oesophagus.

Find out more about gastroscopy.

Inserting a stent

If you have oesophageal cancer that can't be removed, it's usually recommended that you have a stent inserted instead of endoscopic dilatation. This is because, if you have cancer, there's a higher risk of perforating your oesophagus if it's stretched.

A stent (usually a metal mesh tube) is inserted into your oesophagus during an endoscopy or under x-ray guidance.

The stent then gradually expands to create a passage wide enough to allow food to pass through. You'll need to follow a particular diet to keep the stent open without having blockages.

Congenital dysphagia

If your baby is born with difficulty swallowing (congenital dysphagia), their treatment will depend on the cause.

Cerebral palsy

Dysphagia caused by cerebral palsy can be treated with speech and language therapy. Your child will be taught how to swallow, how to adjust the type of food they eat, and how to use feeding tubes. 

Cleft lip and palate

Cleft lip and palate is a facial birth defect that can cause dysphagia. It's usually treated with surgery. 

Narrowing of the oesophagus

Narrowing of the oesophagus may be treated with a type of surgery called dilatation to widen the oesophagus. 


Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (gord)

Dysphagia caused by gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (gord) can be treated using specially thickened feeds instead of your usual breast or formula milk. Sometimes medication may also be used.

Hi Thanks for your query and Welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi.

My mother is 80 years old, she is a diabetic and bp patient, few of her teeth had to be removed.
Hello , for diabetes: pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements for bp: pls go with omega-3 supplement and cholesterol balance and garlic for heart care.

Teeth whitening or in technical terms bleaching is a dental procedure in which teeth are exposed to certain bleaching chemicals and then treated with high intensity light for those chemicals to work properly. Usually it takes 2-3 sittings to get desired results. But teeth can get stained again 6 months to 1 year after treatment. So to avoid that you should avoid pigmented food substances like tea, coffee, turmeric etc. So ask your dentist before procedure to match your current tooth shade on shade guide and then your desired shade and how many sittings you need for that shade. Kits for home use purpose take longer time and not as good as professional bleaching at a dental clinic.
