What does an archanoid cyst mean? If it enlarges what happens. Is it brain tumor?
Arachnoid cyst is collection of cerebro-spinal fluid (csf) in a part of brain. Mostly, it is present from birth. If it enlarges in size, it may put pressure on the nearby brain. In that case, it needs to be operated. It is not a brain tumor.

I am 20 year old female and have some facial problems since birth. I can not close my left eyelid and it is always tearing. I cannot smile properly and it is so weird when smile goes to only one side. I can not lift my left eyebrows too. People used to mock me since childhood and it become too stressful to face public. I have lost all my confidence and happiness due to this problem and have searched about this situation. I found my condition is called facial nerve palsy. What should I do to cure this completely. Could this be cured completed. This made my life so pathetic and I am fed up of this. My future, happiness and confidence has been destroyed due to this. What should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrate user I empathise with you absolutely. People are ignorant and are pathetically insensitive to an illness which happens due not to your fault. Might be some birth trauma (as is common in forceps delivery.). First of all I shall explain what is facial nerve. You should have good knowledge about it which will help you to tide over the mental agony you are going through. We have 12 pairs of nerve bundles called cranial nerves 1.2. 3. Up to 12.12 on right and 12 on left coming out of the brain. The first nerves carry the smell sensation called olfactory nerves. The second carry visual sensation to the brain (helping us to see) called optic nerves. The facial nerve is cranial nerve number 7th. Each supplies all the muscles of one side of the face. Because of this we can smile. Frown. Move the eyelids. Close the eyes etc. When both nerves (right and left) are sound. The muscles move normally so that your smile is perfect. Eyes close equally. But when one nerve is damaged. It causes weakness in the muscles of that side. And the other side being sound will cause normal movement of muscles of that side. As a result the corner of the mouth will be dragged to the sound side because the other sided muscles can not move due to nerve paralysis. This causes facial asymmetry. And you can not close your eyes effectively in the affected side. There is a risk to this. Because your affected sided eyelid cannot close. Your cornea of that eye will be constantly exposed and become dry and will form ulcer called' corneal ulcer'this has to be prevented. Else your vision will be affected badly. Coming to treatment: you must consult a neuro physician to deal with this problem. Because it gas become an old problem. It will take time for correction. So never give up. Apply artificial tear eye drops (like tear plus) one drop in each eye every 8 hourly. To prevent corneal damage. You will need some form of physiotherapy including electrical stimulation of the facial nerve if applicable in your case. I expect a fair outcome in your case. Good luck!

I am suffering from migraine so what are the precautions to be taken by me in order to control migraine.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

I was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. Post operation and having a shunt added, I recovered. I drank alcohol, about a pint. And have been suffering with the uneasiness and lack of awareness, alertness, as it was before I got operated. Although the CT scan shows no damage, I want to get rid of this constant feeling of a hangover. Please help.

General Physician,
You have to sop alcohol. Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers. Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I m having migraine nd headache from last 15 days so please prescribe me a good treatment so I can feel good.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
Headaches due to migraine is very common these days especially in young adults because of there lifestyle and working environment. Sometimes pain is very severe on one side of the head.  So I would recommend you to avoid stress and anxiety, quiet the mind from distractions. Stay calm positive and do deep breathing exercises, listen some music that would give you some relaxation. If pain is severe then place ice pack over forehead and lie down for some time to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full life. Massage your head using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body. You can use mint or clove spray for inhaling in case of headache. If pain is severe you can also apply ginger paste over the painful area. Avoid taking caffeine, alcohol, phenylethylamine (found in chocolate and cheese), tyramine (found in nuts and fermented meats, cheeses, and soy), and aspartame (in many artificially sweetened foods) as sometimes these all exaggerate pain instead use basil leaves tea or ginger tea boiled nicely in water without milk. Regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. Avoid fasting - Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings. Make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. Take min 7 hours of sleep. Make a habit of 20-25 min walking daily along with some meditations. If required then only take pain relieving tablets like naprosyn For more help or instructions please consult. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.
