Doctor my sister whose age is 28 years is suffering from epilepsy. I need some advice how to cure this disease. What are the medicines or what are the step we should take first for this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Epilepsy may occur as a result of a genetic disorder or an acquired brain injury, such as a trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behaviour, symptoms and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures. Epilepsy is usually treated by medication and in some cases by surgery, devices or dietary changes. after taking an EEG and full check up

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. Your complaints have arisen as per your history from uncontrolled diabetes which initially affected your eyes and is now causing neuropathy. You don' t require a surgical intervention when the cause is a medical one, so my advise to you is to meet up with your endocrinologist and get yourself evaluated, if he suggests to you that it is compression in lower back region for which you have mentioned no complaints, then you may come back to me and we can discuss your case in detail. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Hello doctor. I am feeling my numbness in my ears from last two days. What should I do? and having some sensations in my palm also.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
It could be due to cervical spondylosis this is quite a common condition rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan. Get ent opinion as well.

What are the symptoms of migraine?
I suffer from severe headache. Is it migraine?
Severe throbbing headache, intermittent, with nausea, vomiting. Aggravated by any stimuli like wind, cold, stress, not proper sleep etc. But before diagnosing as migraine one should check his bp, eye refractive error-spect number, ear problem etc. But once diagnose treatment is simple, but have to take for long time.

Ayurveda, Udupi
Dear Lybrate User, *Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. *Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. *Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. *Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. *Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system. *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.

Brainstem tumors are hard to operate since they are surrounded by extremely important tracts and centers that control many vital functions. Though a good MRI with tractography can sometimes show a safe corridor. For surgery.

A level TSH 100 shows a highly uncontrolled hypothyroidism. The direct evidence for controlled hypothyroidism is a normal report of tsh which shows that it is within range. If the tsh is higher than the upper range then the dose will be increased and if the tsh is lower than the lower range then the dose will decreased. If the tsh is within range then you have controlled hypothyroid state and the dose will be carried on as such. Currently if she is on any medicine then the dose needs to be escalated and if she is not on any medicine then she needs to be started ASAP.

Know More About Epilepsy

MBBS, DNB, Fellowship in Neurosurgery
Neurosurgeon, Kolkata

Epilepsy is an abnormal medical condition due to abnormal electrical discharge from the brain, which could be due to genetic defects, brain injury,brain infection,brain tumor etc.

Recent study shows, patients with awareness, knowledge and attitude towards the disease had better health related quality of life.

Do’s

  • Do take your medicines at the prescribed times.
  • Do make it known to your family members, friends and people who work with you that you are seizure-prone. Tell them what should be done in case you get an attack in their presence. This is nothing to be ashamed of as epilepsy is a medical condition just like high blood pressure. If your child has epilepsy, do inform the teacher and the school authorities about it.
  • Do tell your child's teacher what to do if your child has a seizure.
  • Do keep an accurate record of your seizures and their frequency. Preferably, maintain a seizure diary.
  • Do ask your doctor about medicines for other conditions before taking them.
  • Do follow a balanced diet.
  • Do exercise regularly but avoid over-exertion.
  • Do have good lighting in the room where you watch TV. TV picture flashes can trigger seizures. Good lighting can prevent such attacks.
  • Do tell someone if you are going for a swim; swim only if your seizures are under control. Moreover, whenever possible, go swimming with a friend.
  • Do talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of using contraceptive pills (medicines used by women to avoid unwanted pregnancy) along with your epilepsy medicines.
  • Do wear protective headgear when cycling.
  • Do tell your doctor about any ill effects that you experience.
  • Do get a good night's sleep daily.
  • Do make sure you have enough medicine so that you don't run short, even when you are travelling.
  • Do check-in with your doctor regularly.

Don’ts

  • Don't stop your treatment unless your doctor tells you to.
  • Don't consume caffeine or alcohol excessively.
  • Don't take other medicines without checking with your doctor.
  • Don't lock the bathroom/toilet door, if possible.
  • Don't smoke.
  • Don't give others your medicines and don't take anyone else's medicines.

No. Epilepsy has nothing to do with curses, possession or other supernatural processes, such as punishment for past sins.

Does epilepsy spread through touching or coughing?

No, epilepsy does not spread through touching or coughing.

Does the use of an onion, metal, etc., help in terminating an ongoing epileptic attack?

No. Some people think that an epileptic attack can be terminated by making the person smell onions or dirty shoes, or by placing a metal key in the person's hand. These are irrational beliefs.

Are epilepsy medications ineffective?

No. Epilepsy medicines are very essential for the control of epileptic attacks and should not be neglected.

Is marriage a cure for epilepsy?

No. Marriage is an important aspect of life but not a cure for epilepsy.

Epilepsy is hereditary hence unfit to get married?

Epilepsy is not a hereditary disorder, and the tendency of epilepsy being passed is only about 3 %, therefore no bar for marriage.

Women suffering from epilepsy cannot have children?

Epilepsy or anti-epileptic drugs cannot affect fertility, even during pregnancy, women can take their medicines under their doctor’s supervision.

Is life of a person with epilepsy miserable?

No. Life of a person with epilepsy can be very manageable and very similar to life of people without epilepsy provided you have a positive approach towards life.

There are many famous poets, writers and sportsmen with epilepsy who have excelled in their respective fields.

Special Precautions in Children with Epilepsy

Computerized and Lights:
Up to 5% of children with epilepsy have photosensitive epilepsy. Computers and TVs with a flat screen do not flicker and, so, are less likely to trigger seizures than screens that flicker. However, flashing lights/ flickering screen can act as trigger in photosensitive epilepsy patients.

Exams and Tests:
For Children who are likely to have seizures in stressful situations or at certain times of the day, this may affect how they perform in exams or tests. Tiredness, memory or concentration problems may also affect exams or tests. Tiredness, memory or concentration problems may also affect exams.

Physical Activities and Lessons:
Safety is important for all children, especially during physical activities and lessons, such as when studying science. Epilepsy does not need to stop a child from doing an activity as long as he or she is safe.

During Swimming:
This must be allowed only in the presence of trusted lifeguards. It is essential that the swimming coach and the lifeguards fully understand a child’s epilepsy so they can quickly see if the child is having a seizure in the water.

The antisynthetase syndrome associated with anti-jo-1-antibodies requires long-term immunosuppressive therapy in most patients. Whereas a complete clinical response of muscular symptoms is frequent, continued deterioration of the pulmonary system may occur despite immunosuppressive treatment, and may lead to fatal outcome. 2. Epilepsy cannot be cured completely, treatment helps to reduce symptoms.
