I am patient of hemifacial spasm in left side since 2007. Please suggest me homeopathic medicine.

Bachelor of physiotherapy
Physiotherapist, Faridabad
It caused by injury to the facial nerve, a tumor or blood vessel compressing the nerve, or Bell's palsy. The most common cause is compression of your facial nerve by the anterior inferior cerebellar artery where the nerve begins at your brain stem. Involuntary twitching or contraction of the facial muscles on one side of the face. I suggest you to use physiotherapy for treating this prob. And use gum and balloons to increase strength of paralyzed muscles, and various movements of face is helpful to correct your face position. I'll suggest you to know movement of face muscles contact me in private box and I'll tell you medication and exercises which I regularly used on these kind of patients and they feel good and better now.

Daily sex is not harmful and there is no need to worry about that. Numbness of hands and feet means that there could be a disease of nerves (peripheral neuropathy), which can be confirmed by doing nerve conduction studies.

I am 79, male, suffering from" small fibre peripheral neuropathy" for last about ten years. I am only mildly diabetic (well in control) for three years only. It has been gradually becoming difficult for me to walk. Recently there has been sudden increase in this deterioration. The neurologist I can get to is too expensive for me. I have been on gabapentin, but my diabetologist changed it to pregeb. Your advice and prescription?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
If diabetes is in control normally other complications are either delayed or of less severity. Since your problem is long standing one, it may not completely go away. Pregabalin is a good drug to help in this condition. But it equally essential to maintain a strict sugar control to get better relief.

My son is having eplyees fits since 10 years long he is now 18 years old he is taking medicine i. E zeptol cr 300, zeptol cr 400 and lamez 50 daily fit symptoms only while sleeping now fit is coming rarely how much time he will take medicine.

Neurosurgeon,
If your son still has seizures during sleep, the medication needs to be changed, so that he is seizure-free. Once the patient is seizure-free on adequate medications for more than 3-5 years, consideration as to the reduction and stoppage of medicines can be contemplated.

Namaste. As a Neurologist, the one question in your statement, which I can answer, is the numbness you feel in right upper thigh. It is called Meralgia Paresthetica. Not to worry about it. It's caused because a superficial nerve in your skin gets affected-- usually by sudden weight gain or loss, as in pregnancy, and sometimes by clothing which is tightly fitted at the waist. Usually heals by itself over weeks and months-- don't wear tight clothing at the waist. Medications maybe used of the symptoms are bothersome. Best,

Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes And Treatment!!

Pulmonologist, Ahmedabad
Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes And Treatment!!

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a medical condition in which the patient's breathing is obstructed for brief periods of time. Normally, air flows into the lungs at all times. But for a person suffering from OSA condition, the breathing pattern is hampered and the flow of the air is restricted. The flow of air stops because the airway space may be very narrow. Snoring is the biggest symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.

Symptoms-

All the symptoms that you might be experiencing due to lack of sleep will be experienced through OSA. They are periods where there is a decreased oxygen supply to the brain and as a result, you will be experiencing a disturbed sleep throughout the night. Some of the other symptoms can include headaches, forgetfulness, and drowsiness. Depression, hyperactivity and swelling in legs and daytime drowsiness are other common symptoms that can be associated with it.

Causes-

OSA is common in people who are overweight and people who suffer from obesity. There are 3 major types of sleep apnea.

  1. Obstructive sleep apnea: This is the most common type where the airway becomes narrowed or blocked.
  2. Central sleep apnea: There is no blockage involved, but the brain does not give out any signal to breath.
  3. Mixed sleep apnea: This is a combination of both - obstructive and central sleep apnea.

The other factors that can cause OSA can include children with large tonsils, large tongue, and certain heart diseases.

Diagnosis-

A diagnosis of sleep apnea begins with a complete history and physical examination. Your snoring patterns are analyzed and how rested your body is being taken into account. The doctor will also examine your head and neck to identify any physical factors that may be associated with sleep apnea. Mostly you might be asked to take a test at one of the sleep centers to identify your sleep patterns. The results would be analyzed for better identification of the treatment.

Treatment-

Positive Airways Pressure Therapy, or PAP therapy, can prevent or reduce the serious health consequences of OSA. PAP therapy helps people with all levels of OSA, from mild to severe. It is most common therapy for OSA.

There are different forms of PAP therapy. All forms of PAP help keeping the airway open during the night. These devices provide a stream of air through a mask you wear while you sleep. The airstream prevents your airway from closing, so you don't stop breathing and wake up during the night.

The mask must fit and make a seal in order to keep throat open. A good mask seal will prevent air leaks and maintain the right level of air pressure. The amount of air pressure needed is different for each person.

PAP is usually the first form of treatment for OSA. There are other treatments for OSA. You can talk to your health care provider about which treatment is right for you.  

If you are overweight, weight loss can help improve or eliminate your OSA. Oral appliances will use to treat mild to moderate OSA. They fit over the teeth and are worn during sleep. People with OSA may have surgery to reduce the tissue in their throats or to help them lose weight. Lifetyle of behavioral changes, such as quitting smoking or not drinking alcohol, can also help treat OSA. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

Piles and fissures mouth bleeding... I am very nervous about operation... Right now I could not walk even sleep is painful...

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

It all depends on the nature of work you are going to do. If it involves operating machinery, driving or working under flashes of light, it is not advisable.

Is seizure at the age of 17 can be due to brain tumor (non-cancerous) or brain cancer (cancerous)?
