Pain is the most common reason people in the United States visit their doctors each year. Although pain is highly subjective and difficult to describe, a working definition is ?an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential physical damage.? Its components are physical, cognitive, behavioral, emotional and perceptual. Among people who have Parkinson?s disease (PD), pain is a major complaint. In fact, up to 85 percent of people with Parkinson?s report pain as a troubling symptom. Some of these people experience pain as an early symptom of Parkinson?s, before their disease has even been diagnosed. Yet, pain in Parkinson?s disease often remains undiagnosed and untreated. Thus, it is important to understand that pain can be part of the Parkinson?s experience and to learn ways to manage it. Causes of Pain in Parkinson?s Pain researchers use a classification system that is based on the separation of tissue pain receptors from the nerves that transmit pain signals. Pain can be classified as nociceptive, which relates to tissue damage, implicating the pain receptors in the skin, bones or surrounding tissues; as neuropathic, indicating pain arising in nerves; or as a mixed pain syndrome involving both nociceptive and neuropathic pain. In Parkinson?s, most pain experiences seem to result from tissue that is injured or has the potential to be damaged: causes include persistent tremor, muscle rigidity, dystonia, musculoskeletal injury (i.e., sprains, bruises, bone fractures resulting from a fall etc.), burns and inflammation. The pain is typically well-localized to the affected body part; it may fluctuate with the medication dosing. Pain caused by dystonia can be diagnosed when there is visible twisting, cramping or posturing of the painful body part. The most common areas of the body where people with Parkinson?s experience pain are the neck, upper back and extremities. In Parkinson?s, neuropathic pain is less common than nociceptive pain, and includes a number of conditions not directly related to PD, such as shingles, cancer pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, and peripheral neuropathy. The pain may present as burning, numbness and tingling, sharp sensations, or electric shock qualities. Pain due to nerve or root disease is most commonly caused by akathisia, an extreme inner restlessness. Parkinson?s specialists gain insight from the perspective of the pain specialist, and often select treatments based on the nociceptive versus neuropathic classification. In practical terms, it often proves helpful to conceptualize the experience of pain in Parkinson?s as relating to one or more of the following five categories: pain from the muscles or skeleton, pain from nerves or spinal roots, pain related to sustained twisting or writhing, discomfort from akathisia and pain caused directly by changes in chemicals in the brain due to Parkinson?s. The Impact of Pain It is important to address pain because it may interfere with day-to-day activities, mood, sleep and overall enjoyment of life. Specific problems resulting from chronic pain may include sleep disturbance, malnutrition, social withdrawal, physical and functional decline, depression, anxiety and impaired cognition. Pain also accounts for increased overall health care costs. A person?s perception of pain can be affected by emotional factors. Scientists have shown that depression, which affects approximately 40 percent of individuals diagnosed with Parkinson?s, plays an important role in the way people perceive pain. Similarly, tension and muscle stress caused by anxiety can compound pain. Cognitive processes ? how a person views pain and how he or she pays attention to it ? also influence the level of pain a person feels. A person who pays more attention to his or her pain and reacts to pain with a high level of stress will likely experience more pain than someone who tries to ignore the pain and considers it irrelevant to his or her daily life. Feeling helpless to control pain ? that is, believing that pain is uncontrollable or that there are no treatment options or health professionals available to assist in managing pain ? can also make pain seem worse. Fortunately, many options exist for treating pain. How can you find which are right for you? The first step is to talk to your doctor who can assess your pain and then help to build a pain management plan. Assessing and Managing Pain Your doctor can assess pain through a clinical interview and neurological examination, sometimes performed in both the unmedicated state and when the Parkinson?s medications are working fully. Your doctor may also ask you to describe the characteristics of your pain. For example, when do you feel pain? Where in the body is your pain? Does the pain feel hot or cold, stabbing or burning? You also may be asked to report how pain impacts your daily activities ? for example, walking or sleeping. The more information you can provide about your pain, the better your doctor will be able to diagnose and treat it. Management options for pain in Parkinson?s include both the pharmacological (i.e., medications) and the non-pharmacological. A combination of both may offer the best pain control, and an interdisciplinary model of care can lead to optimal results for pain management. Some treatment options include: medications physical therapy massage botulin toxin injections nutrition management exercise acupuncture/acupressure psychotherapy (emphasis on pain management) stretching Because of the relationship between dopamine and pain, dopaminergic medications such as levodopa can affect a person?s perception of pain. People with Parkinson?s who are in the ?on? levodopa state, when the medication is at peak effectiveness, report less pain than those in the ?off? state. Pain due to rigidity or dystonia can be relieved by dopamine drugs, but on the other hand, may cause dyskinesias. Therefore, effective management of levodopa medication for people with Parkinson?s may help to reduce pain. Because certain thought processes and behaviors can alleviate or worsen pain, some people find psychotherapy helpful for managing their pain. Techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (helping to control the psychological response to pain; teaching diaphragmatic breathing, visual imagery exercises, relaxation techniques, etc.), and biofeedback may help ease pain, but are unlikely to eliminate it completely. A physical therapist can help you select and modify appropriate exercise routines. Of course, you should avoid activities or exercises that make your pain worse.

My age is 23 years old. At this age I take suminat 25 or 50 mg for severe migraine 8 to 10 times a month. Is it safe?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Dear reduce migraine by *diet: good dietary habits would help an individual maintain good health and offer immunity from recurring bouts of headaches. Consuming cooked vegetables without oil should be encouraged. Have a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Vegetable juices and soup, fruits and fruit juices including apple, mango, should be taken in ample quantities. Highly-fruit based diet for a day or two can relieve pain. Grapes, lemons, cabbage juice are especially important. Rice, salad and buttermilk can always be consumed. *yoga: simple yoga treatments have been found to serve both as an alternative and as a supplement for dealing with migraine and headaches. Yoga is known to offer both cure and immunity from headaches. Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain. However, for those suffering from severe headache like migraine, any type of exercise can be injurious. *useful herbs -- ginger, brahmi, jatamansi.

You need counselling more than probably medication for your psychiatry problems. I can see that you have used lots of medical terms in your question. You might be doing searching in the internet. I feel that you are not satisfied with what is happening in your life right now. Epilepsy might have made to compromise a few things in your life. Remember epilepsy medicine can be stopped if fits don't occur for a considerable period of time as decided by your doctor. Many patients will not have any recurrence after stopping. However counselling is required to correct some of the faulty thinking you are having now. Once your thought process is changed you will find the positives of life and will be able to enjoy it.

Hello, there are many causes behind backache *any strain or sprain in the muscles or ligaments of the back during lifting of heavy objects is the main cause of the lower back pain. *sitting in the wrong posture for a very long time is another cause. *people suffering from constipation may also suffer from lower back pain. *sometimes sleeping on wrong type of beds can also cause pain in the back. Follow the tips *take rest or move about once in 1-2 hours in case of working in a constant position. *maintain a good posture while reading or working with computers. *take a high fibre content diet like vegetables, fruits, etc.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I need to understand since when are these burning sensations present and what actually is a cause for this? normally these paresthesias are due to nerve involvement somewhere. Medications like gabapentin and pregabalin are helpful in low doses to begin with, but we need to understand what is the cause first. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I got hurt on my toe finger and its numb what to do?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
I got hurt on my toe finger and its numb what to do?
Dear, when the toe gets hurt the tissues surrounding the same gets swollen and bruised. The digital nerves get mildly compressed due to the swelling causing the numb feeling. This will usually get better over a period of 24 - 48 hrs. Take an anti inflammatory medication to ease the pain & reduce the swelling. An xray will help you to rule out a fracture. Thanks and regards Dr. Senthil kamalasekaran

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.
