I Have been taking "Snapit" for 3- month as SOS, along with medicines like tryptomer 75 mg, megronile, etc. It's only when I take Snapit, I get temporarily relief. What foods+fruits+juices should I take to avoid taking the above mentioned medicines? or what homeopathic treatments you can recommend to totally avoid. Allopathic medicine.

In pregnancy you should take as little medicine as possible. Only painkiller safe in pregnancy is paracetamol (crocin). Don't take any other painkillers as they harm the baby. You should try simple tips to avoid headache and start preventive medicine for migraine after baby is delivered. Follow these lifestyle changes to avoid headache 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3. Do not consume excess caffeine / carbohydrates / alcohol or smoke. 4. Exercise daily (aerobics and cardiovascular) 5. Identify your headache trigger and try to avoid it. 6. Perform pranayam every morning.

Epilepsy - Ways Surgery Can Help You!

Epilepsy - Ways Surgery Can Help You!

The word epilepsy brings to mind visions of people frothing at the mouth and rolling on the ground. However, epilepsy affects each patient in a different way. This can make it hard to recognize at times. In the more serious cases of epilepsy, an epileptic attack can make a patient injure himself or develop other life threatening conditions. In rare cases, epilepsy can even cause death. Thus it becomes imperative to understand how to deal with epilepsy.

Treatment options for epilepsy can be categorized as medication, surgical procedures and ​dietary changes.

Medication
Medication for epilepsy is prescribed on the basis of the symptoms presented and the type of epilepsy the patient is suffering from. In most cases, seizures can be controlled with a single type of medication, but in others, the doctor may need to prescribe a combination of medicines to control epilepsy. These forms of medication do have side effects and hence any reactions to the medication must be immediately brought to the doctor's notice. The dosage for epilepsy medication may need to be varied with time. An epileptic patient should never discontinue medication on their own.

Surgery
Depending on the type of seizures and the area of the brain affected, a doctor may advise surgery in cases of severe epilepsy. Surgery can help reduce the number of seizures experienced or completely stop them. Surgery to treat epilepsy is of many types. Some of the common procedures are:

1. Surgery to remove tumor of any such conditions that may be triggering the epileptic attacks
2. Surgery to remove a small section of the brain from where a seizure originates. This may also be referred to as a lobectomy.
3. Multiple subpial transaction or a surgery that involves making a series of cuts in the brain to prevent the seizures from spreading to other parts of the brain.
4. Surgery to sever the neural connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
5. Surgery to remove half the brain's cortex or outer layer

Dietary changes
A diet rich in fats and low in carbohydrates can help reduce seizures. This is known as a ketogenic diet and aims at making the body break down fats instead of carbohydrates. It can cause a buildup of uric acid in the body and thus should be practiced only under the guidance of a dietician. In cases where epileptic attacks are triggered by malnutrition and birth defects, taking vitamin supplements can help lower the frequency of seizures. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user, L4-L5 disc prolapse is very common at your age. Most of the cases (almost 80-90 percent) improve with conservative care including best tolerable medical management, Physiotherapy and lifestyle measures. It takes approximately 6 weeks to 3 months if you are very compliant. I think you may need to increase/ optimize your medications if you are satisfied with your therapy / lifestyle measures. Attend your doctor for the same ; but please inform him urgently if you have following symptoms like progressively increasing symptoms (sensory loss /weakness, difficulty holding urine/ stool or severe cramps in legs after taking only few steps. Hopefully you will improve very soon. Wish you all the best!

My mother often gets headache (migraine. She takes pain killers, but now she needs higher dose of pain killer to get relief. What can be the other treatment for this to get rid of pain killers.

Hello lybrate-user, I am treating migrane patients for last 1 year, plus diagnosing migraine is not that easy and pain killers are not the ultimate solution for that. I would further enquire if your mother has undergone investigation for diagnosis of migraine.
