Based on the location and extent of tumor, the recovery period various. Nobody can guarantee the exact time for recovery and to what extent the recovery might occur. Many patients may have to live with and accept residual weakness.

How can I get rid off from migraine. I have been facing this problem for long years.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Nagpur
Although migraine is a genetic disease and patient experiences symptoms for many years, it can be very well controlled with medications and some non pharmacological methods.

Hi, This is about my mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. So after going to many doctors we have seen that all doctor just repeat mostly the same tests and same medicines and I am very hurt to say this but all they want is money they don't care about patient as we are from middle class family money matters for us but money is nothing in front of my mother's well being and we are ready for treatment cost until they diagnosed her properly and do proper treatment. Please reply as soon as possible.

My answer to your query is: 1.My mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand See there are 2 main types of thyroid related problem one is Hypothyroidism where body does not produces thyroid Hormone sufficiently and another is hyperthyroidism where body produces excess of thyroid hormone in the body. You had not mentioned which thyroid problem your mother is facing among these.In thyroid problem level of serum T3, T4 and TSH always monitored and in conventional allopathic treatment accordingly doses are adjusted. Hence monitoring is very important in all thyroid problem. Shaking of hand and tremors may be because of continuous use of above mentioned medicine also. 2. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. This is the drawback of not getting complete information from site such as google. Of course early sign of parkison disease in most of the cases is tremor (that is also a characteristic pill rolling tremor of parkisons disease) but it is also associated with other signs and symptoms such as rigidity in muscles, slow movement of body, balancing problem, speech changes and also most important mask like face. So first confirm it. 3.Start Homeopathic treatment along with conventional medicines for long term effect without any known side effects as we after monitoring condition will stop the dosage in a time span.

Hi You cannot work on a specific body part. You have to work on overall fat loss and toning. Try to eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Drink a glass of lime water in the mornings to lush out your system & avoid bloating. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Include exercises that tone your back and abdominal muscles too. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets and singular ab exercises or ab machines will not give you targeted results. The fats will remain as it is. It's all about overall work out and balanced diet.

Hi doctor, I have epilpsy problem and undergoing medication (taking epilex crono 300mg daily) just want to know for any permanent solution and root cause of this and preventive steps to be taken. Thank you in advance.

First you should get evaluated for the cause of epilepsy. It will require investigation like mri brain (with epilepsy protocol) and eeg. You may require further investigation based upon the results of above. Minimum dose of medication you are taking depends upon the weight of patient. If you are a adult, this does is less for you. Its better to consult a neurologist for proper management and treatment.

Tips To Prevent Sleep Disorders

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Tips To Prevent Sleep Disorders

1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle such as eating well, drinking water regularly, avoiding stress and maintaining a healthy weight. Frequently, individuals develop sleep disorders due to stress or obesity.

2. Establish a regular schedule for sleep. Wake up and go to bed at the same time everyday, including weekends. Establishing a regular sleep schedule will train your body to sleep soundly on a consistent basis.

3. Avoid taking naps throughout the day. If you take a nap during the day, then you will be less tired at night, be more restless and may not sleep as deeply.

4. Abstain from smoking, drinking alcohol or ingesting caffeine because they can keep you up at night. Even though alcohol makes you sleepy, it obstructs the quality of your sleep.

5. Exercise regularly so that your body will be tired, but do not exercise for 3 to 4 hours before you go to sleep, because it may energize you.

6. Refrain from eating heavy meals for dinner, which can make you feel uncomfortable and will prevent you from sleeping well.

7. Create a bedroom that is quiet, dark and a comfortable temperature, which will promote sleep and avoid disturbances.

8. Sleep on your side with your head slightly elevated to prevent the symptoms of sleep apnea.

9. Construct a bedtime routine such as reading, meditating or bathing. Having a routine will train your body to recognize that you are preparing for sleep, which will help you to fall asleep easier.

10. Use your bedroom for sleep only. Do not work or do any other tasks in your bedroom if possible. If your bedroom is used only for sleep, then you will associate the room with sleep, which will aid in falling asleep faster and sleeping deeply.

11. Get out of bed and engage in a non-stimulating activity, such as reading until you feel sleepy again. Sometimes lying in bed when you are not able to sleep makes it more difficult to feel sleepy.

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.

Causes

Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.

Treatment

Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.

Prevention

Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

Migraine can be due to many reasons mainly improper diet, improper lifestyle or some medications. You need to correct lifestyle. Take light food, sleep early, exercise regularly, increase intake of cow ghee in diet and things will improve. Whenever it pains, start tea with 3 tsf cow ghee. Pain will reduce immediately.
