I have migraine problem so taking antidepressants now my brain activities have decreased.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Bangalore
There are other medications to treat migraine. But the drugs given to you must be dicussed with your doctor.

He had clot in brain a year back, due to which his one side paralysed. After that he recovered from the clot but paralysis treatment is going on since than. There is some visible improvement in leg movement but very less improvement there in hands. People are suggesting for neuro physiotherapy. So I am planning to bring him bangalore and get a better treatment. Do you provide neuro physiotherapy?

Physiotherapist, Navi Mumbai
Hi, it's glad to know that the patient is showing signs of improvements in the leg. Whenever you look back at a case of recovering stroke; it's important to analyse what the activities that the patient was unable to do and with time is showing changes in the status. Even a flicker in the finger is also considered a positive sign. Similarly, try to analyse what are the positives are seen in the upper body too (hand movements). Probably even an action of holding a pen or a spoon can lead to a successful achievement of functions when trained gradually. Also, it's true that neuro physiotherapy plays a very important role in stroke recovery. You may please connect with us on a private chat for further help. Wishing the patient a speedy recovery!

I am 21 years old. Have started feeling a frequent tingling sensation in my feet at irregular intervals while sitting cross legged. My weight is 105 kg and height is 174 cm. Have no other problems yet. I have not undergone any tests yet. What can a possible, usual reason for this can be?

It can be because of anemia or thyroid problem or obesity or ht or dm etc. U need to do blood sugar fasting, thyroid profile, CBC, bp from some lab. In the meanwhile do this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. It contains a lot of fiber which will help reduce tendency for constipation 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time.

Alzheimer's Disease And Immune System - Know Link Between It!

Alzheimer's Disease And Immune System - Know Link Between It!

Alzheimer's Disease is a neurological problem that is characterised by a cognitive decline and memory loss. It is a type of neurodegenerative dementia. The symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease include not being able to absorb and retain new information, lack of reasoning and judging, not being able to take on complex tasks, impaired visuospatial abilities, problems in reading, writing and speech, among many others. If a person has at least two of these symptoms in a debilitating manner, then the diagnosis can be made in favour of Alzheimer's Disease. The main causes of Alzheimer's are shrinkage of the brain size and death of the brain cells. The immune system is also said to trigger this neurodegenerative disease.

Let us find out what medical science has found so far.

1. Connections: Many a times, in Alzheimer's disease, the memory and behaviour of the person changes because the brain is unable to make proper neural connections which can lead to memory loss of how a person behaved and the elements that formed the basis of the patient's cognition. Apparently, the immune system behaves in the same way within the brain and blocks the connection. This happens because there is constant communication between the brain and immune system along neurological lines, which is where the disease first emanates.

2. Inflammation: The brain is prone to inflammation or swelling that is not the normal kind. This inflammation happens as a result of the activation of the infection fighting neurotransmitters and the chemical changes that happen in the brain when an infection strikes. The inflammation usually happens in the plaques or clumps which the brain tries to protect. These clumps are made up of a protein called Amyloid. The immune system is responsible for creating this inflammation in the brain of the patient.

3. Pattern Recognition Receptors: Many of these receptors work in different manners and cooperate with each other to create a response in the brain. These PRRs can be found in the brain plaques, and they develop the signs of danger which further fuels the inflammation in the brain as a matter of protection.

4. Activation of Cells Linked with the Immune System: When the PRRs begin to respond, it basically activates the immune system and the cells of the same. This is the basic reaction that causes the changes in brain which then leads to the attachment of the protein to the tissue that is diseased, in which case Alzheimer's Disease starts. The inflammation that we had spoken about earlier basically happens in the nervous tissue.

It is important to recognise and act on the initial signs of Alzheimer's Disease before it progresses beyond one's control.

Epilepsy - Know Facts About It!

DM - Neurology, Fellow in Child Neurology
Neurologist, Moradabad

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones.

Causes of Epilepsy

The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures

A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in the case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebrities with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc. 
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients.

Migraine - How Homeopathy Can Tackle It?

Migraines are one of the most common types of headaches. They are unilateral, pulsating, are accompanied by nausea and vomiting and have an increased sensitivity to light and noise. During an attack, people prefer to lock themselves up in a quiet, dark room and wait for the attack to pass.

Homeopathic remedies for migraine: Homeopathy believes that migraines are just a manifestation of an underlying body problem and so treatment is aimed at addressing the root cause of the problem.
The remedy is chosen based on the presenting symptoms as noted below; however, self-medication is best avoided. Accompanying symptoms in body systems that could seem completely unrelated should also be considered before picking a medicine.

Belladonna is the first chosen medicine for headaches as its effect lasts longer than other medicines. Although relief is brought on by hard pressure over the head, in case the headache persists, Belladonna is prescribed when a person experiences any of the following symptoms:

  • Throbbing, shooting, violent pain in the head, where the patients want to scream out
  • Feeling of fullness in the head, which worsens when lying down and is better on sitting up
  • Unable to tolerate light or noise
  • Right-sided pain or pain in the frontal region
  • Face appears puffed, red and flushed
  • Dilated pupils
  • Headaches are usually worse in the afternoon
  • Red and glassy eyes
  • Can be triggered by exposure to cold air or a cold water head bath

Glonoinum is useful under the following circumstances:

  • Where the pain is congestive, with a feeling of head being too big
  • The patient is seen holding his or her head
  • Head feels very warm
  • Protruding eyes
  • Triggered by sun exposure
  • Improved by sleeping, after removing any headgear that is worn
  • Worsened by walking

Nux Vomica is recommended under the following conditions:

  • Headache is often in the back of the head, and also around the eyes.
  • Usually worsens in the morning
  • When migraine is associated with gastric troubles
  • Jaundiced appearance with pale complexion and yellow eyes
  • Suffer from indigestion, constipation, piles or flatulence
  • Induced by coffee, spicy foods, or alcohol
  • Worsened by stooping and coughing
  • Relieved by holding or pressing the head hard

Iris versicolor

  • Migraine is associated with intense nausea, vomiting or acidity
  • Burning sensation in the digestive tract, sternum and throat
  • Reflux of acid, causing a sour, bitter taste for the patient along with belching
  • Associated with diarrhea
  • Headache preceded with a blurred vision
