Is There A Test For Self-Assessment For Neurological Disorders?

Is There A Test For Self-Assessment For Neurological Disorders?

It is very important for any individual suffering from a neurological disorder to take medical assistance. The possible neurological condition can be diagnosed by doing some medical examinations. Some of the examinations that are conducted for diagnosis include a neurological exam, genetic screening, brain scans and many other tests.

Malfunction of the brain can be caused in more than one region of the brain like frontal cortex, anterior cingulate, Parietal cortex and Basal ganglia. It is very important that symptoms are noticed and required tests are done immediately. In case of malfunctioning in the Basal ganglia, there are chances that patients experience more anxiety and avoid clashes in life excessively.

Self - assessment test for neurological disorders

  • Self-assessment and self-administered tests can identify the presence of the neurological disorder, but it is best to seek medical assistance in such cases. The self-assessment tests can be done by an individual when they face symptoms like problems in urinating, difficulty in concentrating, problems with writing and holding objects, and experiencing blurred vision.
  • It is important for an individual facing complaints like a headache, numbness in the arms or legs, changes in behavior, fatigue, blurry vision, slurred speech, weakness and changes in coordination to contact a medical professional. The thought of neurological disorder itself is very threatening and understanding the drug options available is very important.

Medications Used
The type of medication prescribed to the patients depends mainly on the condition of the neurological disorder. Some of the drugs that are prescribed include corticosteroids. These are provided for treatment of multiple sclerosis and decrease inflammation. Levodopa is a drug used mainly for treating Parkinson’s disease. In addition to physical examination and complete medical history, the diagnostic procedures that are carried out for neurological disorders include Computer Tomography scan (CT scan), Electroencephalogram (EEG), Electromyography (EMG) and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Important Tips to Consider
The drugs used for treating neurological disorders also cause some side effects. In some cases, patients even develop a drug addiction. In such cases, the two critical components of drug addiction like withdrawal and dependence should be understood very well. Dependence on the drug occurs mainly when the patient takes the medication for a prolonged period of time. Further, depending on the nature of the medication and personal situation of the patient, addiction develops quickly. The patient tends to experience withdrawal symptoms if they become dependent on the medication and when they abruptly stop taking it. The symptoms that are caused in this situation include nausea, tremor, and headache. There are many other diagnostic tests also carried out that are useful and prevent further damage to the nervous system.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What is Premature Ejaculation?

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist, Delhi
What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature (early) ejaculation—also referred to as rapid ejaculation; also called as early discharge. Premature Ejaculation Treatment in Delhi (PE) is the most common type of sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40 years and seen across all age groups. In elderly men (60 years) erectile dysfunction is more common. A study conducted by the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that this condition is almost equally prevalent in sexually active men of all age groups. If a man experiences uncontrollable ejaculation (discharge of semen from your penis) either before or shortly after sexual penetration (usually within 1-2 minutes of penetration), he may be suffering from PE. The Mayo clinic at the United States defines PE as a condition in which a man “always or nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration."

Hi My wife was pregnant and after 27 weeks she got aborted on 18th february 2015. We don't know the exact reason but doctor said it was because of lack of rest. She was doing normal household work and she is mother to 2 babies of 7 years and 3. 5 years. Even after 2 months her health is not ok. She is suffering from body pain especially in the right leg (opposite side of knee) and right hand. She is also having little bleeding occasionally. Not only blood some other white particles are also coming out. Whenever she is walking or doing work for some time, she is not feeling well. We consulted 2-3 gynecology doctors but they are taking it too simple. Any one please help.

Hi,
I want know that after pregnancy what should I select for to increase haemoglobin.
If non vegetarian, take plenty of fish, meat, egg. Otherwise take pluses with lemon as it increases iron absorption. Take vegetables like fig, fruits like banana and pomegranate

The levels of AMH are related to no of growing follicles in a ovary and are fairly constant throughout the cycle. So it is difficult to explain the variation .

If sperm goes into the vagina of a girl aged 18 then what is the solution so that she couldn't pregnant?
Dear lybrate user. Pregnancy is not a necessity even if sperm goes into vagina. But there is a possibility. To avoid the possible pregnancy, there are medicines available in market. If the woman takes the medicines before 72 hours after the intercourse, pregnancy chance will be removed. But consult a gynecologist first. Take care.

Health Tips for Women Over 40!!

Health Tips for Women Over 40!!

The health and beauty habits we had during our 20s and 30s were fairly simple. We just had to do the basics - wear sunscreen, exercise, and eat healthy foods. During that period of our lives, our bodies were resilient. We could stay up late, have the occasional unhealthy meal, and skip a couple of days at the gym without a problem.

However, by the time you hit your 40s, your body begins to change. Since turning 40, your body parts want to connect with the floor. Not only that, your stomach is sensitive, You can’t stay up past 10 p.m., and if you don’t exercise regularly, again, the whole operation starts inching closer to the floor.

Keeping ourselves healthy and beautiful post-40 takes work. So here are some tips to keep your post-40 body at its most lovely.

  1. Dietary requirements for women: Until the age of 40, a woman can get away with being a bit naughty about her diet. However, after the age of 40, the important hormones in her body are more imbalanced than before. This imbalance is further accentuated if her lifestyle and nutrition is not managed wisely. According to Ayurveda, a woman over the age 40 has to control her diet aggressively. This can be done by reducing fats and carbohydrates while ensuring the body is nourished by fibers and sufficient amount of vitamins, calcium, minerals and protein.
  2. Take Your Vitamins: Taking vitamins after 40 is the difference between having healthy looking skin and glossy hair, and having sallow skin and hair that is a dry mess. So take your vitamins - just like when you were a kid!
  3. Exercise Daily: When you were younger, your body didn’t show the effects of a couple of days of missed exercise. However, when you are in our 40s, working out is critical. Your body quickly loses its agility if you don’t exercise it daily. You don’t have to spend 2 hours a day at an expensive gym. Have a regular exercise regime that you can do consistently is the best gift that you can give yourself.
  4. Take Care of Your Feet and Back: Your feet and back do big jobs for you. They support your weight and make walking easier or harder, depending on your health condition. For those of us who don’t live in warm climates, we tend to neglect your feet during the winter months because they aren’t visible. However, caring for your feet all year round, including regular pedicures, at home or at the salon, is important to keeping your feet healthy. And our back health is critical. Back injuries do not heal quickly, especially as we age. Make sure to stretch your back daily, sleep on a firm bed, and take care when lifting either children or furniture. Your back will thank you.
  5. Sleep!: Gone are the days when you can stay up until 2 a.m., and still look great the next day. These days, if you stay up until 2 a.m., the next morning, you look like you are 90. After 40, sleep makes a big difference in one’s appearance. Even after a quick 10-minute nap, you look refreshed and about 5 years younger. So make your sleep a priority.

Yes, taking care of our post-40 bodies is work. Taking care of your body is a full-time job! Well, it may not be that bad in your 40s, but caring for your bodies as you get older requires some effort. However, looking and feeling great will be the payback for a job well done. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
