Hello Today morning at around 10 a.m,I felt asleep while watching something on laptop. After sometimes, my roommate observed that I was shaking my body while sleeping. When I got up, I was feeling pain in my body. Even I was observing pain in tongue due to biting by teeth. Please let me know what to do.

You are probably having epilepsy attackwhich resulted in biting the tongue. It is advisable to consult a neurololist and may need further investigations. Thanks.

I am 23 years old. I am felling nerves pain like I am felling I am not fit. I want to build my body muscle as well.
Hello, Want to help you, but tell me more symptoms and details of yourproblem for proper diagnosis and thus, proper treatment for nerve pain. For building body muscle: The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on these points which helps in right way without harming your body if you don’t have any medical condition. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day.Protein shakes will help you to gain muscle mass, particularly if you're working out. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. This is where protein shakes and bars really come in handy. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 1month.

On 4th April 2015 I got an Epilepsy attack in morning around 5 A.M. My wife told me that whole body got folded and after Epilepsy I was feeling vomiting issues. After 5 days I realized that some sound is coming from my mind or Ear I do not know but it is coming continuously. Till then I have contacted many Neuro /ENT .Some one says its Tinnitus and I have started medicine. Epilepsy : Encorate Chrono 500 MG two times (Regularly). For Tinnitus : Bilovas and rejunex cd. Some of my friends have told that you are not taking correct medicine for Epilepsy so you are hearing this sound as an side effect. I am not sure because all 3 Neuro doctors have prescribed me same medicine for Epilepsy. Kindly suggest me that if this can be the case or not. I am really confused and getting depressed / anxiety issues now.

Epilepsy is a complex disorder of the brain which has various psychiatric components in it. Anxiety and depression are common. Encorate chrono is no doubt a very good medication for epilepsy. But i hope you have investigated yourself in detail for the first attack of epilepsy at your age. Epilepsy due to some reversible and treatable cause should always be sought for complete cure. Sounds from your mind/ ear need evaluation because sounds in tinnitus are peculiar and can hardly be confused with anything else.

Treatment for infantile hemangiomas should be individualized depending upon the size, location, presence of complications, potential for scarring, the age of the patient, the rate of growth or involution at the time of evaluation, the potential risks and benefits of treatment. Treatment is usually required for complicated hemangiomas that may interfere with a vital structure or function and for lesions at increased risk of ulceration, scarring, and disfigurement. Masterly active nonintervention for uncomplicated hemangiomas that are not disfiguring. Active nonintervention requires regular monitoring of the lesion. Some have tried topical beta blocker like timol for anxious parents, who respond but stopping the treatment may have some rebound effect. Oral propranolol is the first-line agent for the treatment of complicated hemangiomas with the potential to impair function or cause disfigurement eg, periorbital hemangiomas. Systemic steroids, vincristine, and interferon alfa are alternative agents for aggressive hemangiomas but are rarely needed since the advent of propranolol. Children with periorbital hemangiomas should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Oral propranolol in addition to dressings and appropriate painkillers for the treatment of ulcerated hemangiomas that may cause permanent disfigurement, interfere with daily life activities, or do not respond to dressings. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me directly.
