Jisko aap vaham kah rahe hain, usse medical bhaasha mein auditory hallucination kehte hain, aur uski vajah psychosis hoti hai; sambhav hai aapki maataji ko schizophrenia - jaisi koi bimari bhi ho, ya toh dawaiyon ke side-effects se auditory hallucinations ho rahe hon. Par samajh ne wali baat ye hai ki unke liye jo aawazein sunaiy de rahin hain, woh utni hi vastavik hain jitni hamare liye hoti hain jab koi sach mein baat kar rahaa ho - unko chahe aap kitna bhi samjhayen, woh is baat ko samajh nahin paayengi. Psychiatrist isska sahi nidaan karke sahi ilaaj kar sakte hain - dawaon ka asar bhi seemit hotaa hai. Agar Parkinson Disease ko lekar koi samsya ho to mujhe bataiye, shaayad main koi sevaa kar sakun.

I have been having high BP since last 20 years or so and I am 60 years now. Recently about 5 days back I was prescribed Olmezest 20 & Amlong 2.5. However, even after 5 days of this medication my BP is still high at 175/90. I gym, lead normal life, don't have headache and am generally fit. What is the way forward and after how many days does this medicine reduce the BP.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I can make out you are facing significant problems with BP control after 20 years of good control. That needs to be evaluated. 5 days may be too early. A reading of 175 is surely high, but any reading needs to be considered in the context of other readings over a certain interval of time (such as over the previous week, several times in the day, etc) As regards to gym - you need to identify if there is anything you are doing that is not good for BP - aerobic exercise is good, but isotonic exercises (weight lifting) can raise BP; sometimes, in well-equipped gyms, we are tempted to do bending and stretching exercises with small amounts of weight and without realizing we are doing a component of isotonic exercise. Also, do take a closer look at your diet - salt comes in many shapes and sizes and we may be missing something there as well. Apart from that, medications do have their role, and your treating doctor would be the best judge.

Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

Are you aware that shaking hands can be an early sign of thyroid disease?

Yes, that's right! Even in patients who have a low thyroid function, shaking of hands can appear when the dose of thyroxine becomes too high - and it can be a reliable indicator to titrate the dose (which means, if an increase in dose of thyroxine makes the hands start shaking, then the dose should be reduced). In hyperthyroidism (or excessive thryoxine hormone synthesis states in the body), one of the cardinal symptoms is shaking of the hands.

So how do you know for sure it is due to thyroid hormone excess? And how do you differentiate this from other kinds of tremor?

She is suffering from paralysis since last 4 year and she is cured approx 80% but still her right leg not proper getting moment and cure she unable to stand up self. She walk using walker. I need help and suggestion what I do. How can she fully recover. Pl help.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Sir, 4 years after stroke happens, there is no cure - but you can improve function with physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Please visit any center in your area which provides comprehensive rehab - they may suggest various maneuvers as well as orthotic devices - these have to be custom-made and tailored to specific requirements.

I have hand shivering from childhood. I am really ashamed before other. Can you please tell me how it can stopped. Shivering is more if someone watches when I am doing some sensitive thing.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
You probably have essential tremor; this should be confirmed visually by a neurologist; once that is done, it can be treated with drugs in appropriate doses. Et cannot be cured, but the tremor can be improved while on medication.

Respected sir, my father is 59 years old suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia. Progressive in nature. 1. Slurring of speech since 2007 2. Gait abnormality since 2009 3. Writing abnormality since 2009 he is not having any comorbidities neither any family history. Please help me if you have any suggestion for him.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Progressive sca at 59 years age is unusual and should trigger a search for various conditions: cerebrovascular disease, demyelinating disease, infectious diseases, vitamin deficiency, toxic exposure, sarcoidosis, autoimmune diseases (eg, sle, sjogren syndrome), and alcohol-induced cerebellar degeneration. Other diseases that can mimic this condition include late-onset spinocerebellar ataxia with or without a family history, olivopontocerebellar degeneration, and other degenerative diseases of the brain. The most problematic is paraneoplastic cerebellar degernation, even though it is slightly more common among women; in men, it may signal an occult small cell ca of the lung, or hodkgin lymphoma. Apart from the tests for the other conditions mentioned, a test for anti-yo antibody and a search for occult malignancy should be done. Treatment is by physiotherapy/gait therapy, and treatment for the underlying condition if possible.

He is 32 years old met an small accident so he consult doctor they told blod clot in nervein head and nerves are weak. They do treatment but told to make surgery but they told chance is 50% only. So tell me is there chance to cure ?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
This is actually a question for a neurosurgeon. Just some pointers: if it was a'small accident, how come there is'blood in the head? what is the purpose of surgical treatment? and what is meant by 50%chance? when neurosurgery is involved, there is no medical treatment.

I am 19 years old. I have problem with my short term memory day by day its increasing. What should i do?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
I think you mean that you have a problem with your short-term memory (stm), that you are forgetting things, and you feel this is worsening day by day. At this point, this is a perception, and self-observed conclusions on our cognitive functions ('brain functions') are notoriously unreliable; anxiety, low self-esteem and other psychological factors contribute to this low reliability. Still, since this is a worry, it needs objective assessment: a neurologist, or a psychologist should perform a formal test, such as a mini-mental status exam (mmse) to confirm or rule out your suspicion. Any discussion on the reasons and about possible treatments and outcomes would only be meaningful after that assessment is completed.

The diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome should be seriously considered, among other things, and a nerve conduction study should be done for the same.

I am 45 years old and suffering from Parkinson disease since last 2 years. I have taken treatment from neurologist doctor but no relief. Please guide me.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Kindly provide details of your symptoms. Also explain what you mean by no relief with medicines. If the diagnosis is correct, then there cannot be a'no response to medicines' - that is one of the criteria for diagnosis. Hence this information is crucial.

If you are only 24 years old and have developed weakness of left side of face and left hand then it is a serious problem and needs urgent evaluation with a brain scan. Please see a neurologist at the earliest, get yourself appropriately evaluated and treated accordingly. If you have the information, and want further guidance, then I can do so once you provide the information.

I am 52 year old I have insomia problem since last 20 year. I have taken alprazolam. 5 for 18 year now days I m taking ezitalo plus but it showing some side effect. Please tell me what I should take ?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Insomnia is a psychological issue; treating insomnia using allopathic medications is inadequate. Picture that you are on the road driving a car, and your petrol tank is leaking; how far is repeated refilling of your petrol tank going to take you, till you fix the leak? taking a tablet for insomnia is like filling petrol while the leak is still there; here, the leak' is some psychological issue. Since it has been going on for over 20 years now, it is chronic and resistant; you must go to a psychotherapist or a psychoanalyst who can help you get to the root of the problem.

My nephew aged 11 years, has seizure since last month. Doctors diagnosed it epilepsy. We started medicines but seizures occurs on every 2 & 3 days. Mostly during seizure his eyes goes upward and his body has vibrates as electric shocks. Once after seizure his body shocked many times. We asked him what is this. He said my nerves are jaults from inside. We want to know is it epilepsy or not. What should we do at the time of seizures. Eagerly waiting for your reply. At this time he is taking 2 medicines named valparin 200 & levecitram. Thanks.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
The description provided by suggests that your nephew has epileptic seizures; however, one point - when he says my nerves are jaults from inside' make this sound false. Please find out this: is he aware of his surroundings even when he has whole body jerking, or jerking on both sides of the body? if his body is jerking on both sides but he maintains awareness or is able to interact, then it is highly likely that it is a pseudo-seizure. Since he is only 11 years old, this may be due to situational anxiety. If he loses awareness during the fit, or if they involve only one half of his body, then it may be a true epileptic seizure. And the final answer can only come from an eeg which is done at the time when the episode is going on - which is not always possible! hence, we must always keep our minds open, make multiple observations, perform several eegs, treat with the presumption of epilepsy (giving benefit of doubt), and so on.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

This sounds like an essential tremor. History of alcohol, thyroid disease, liver disease needs to be considered also. Please consult me by email attaching any previous reports.
