I am having pricking sensations in my both legs in the feet m. Also having sugar normal than too what should I do?
Hello Sir, I just want to know does lox2% jelly completely blocks all pain signals from the brain or to some extent.
I have been feeling my body shaking/unsteady while I am sitting on chair or standing or walking constantly. But feel relaxed if I sit on floor leaning against something or lying in a cool place. It increases in heat atmospher and in empty stomach or any stress.
I am a male and having the problem of SEIZURES since last 3 years. I really don't know how or neither the doctor clearly specify the reasons of its occurrence. But I don't had any earlier head injuries. The convulsions suddenly stopped as soon as I started the medicines but as on the doctor's advice, I have to continue the medicines for a long period. Some months earlier (nearly 2.5 years of medication) I just stopped the medicine. One month later, the convulsions again started occurring. I suddenly started my medicines but I was really amazed/upset with as I hardly expected that a continuous medication which I used to take daily for 2.5 yrs stopped for some moment and the same problem arises again. Other minor problems like lack of self-confidence, problem while talking, shivering or stretching/relaxing of face muscles at the time of fear etc all started during these times. Kindly help me.
My mother is 55 and is suffering from migrane. She has migrane problem 1-2 times in a week. Please suggest me what to do.
I'm getting too much headache when I get this at that time i'm getting too irritation and also my hands are shivering.
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 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.
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
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.
