What Is Insomnia?

DNB GENERAL SURGERY, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mumbai
What Is Insomnia?

Polysomnography – polysomnography is a test that usually lasts all night and that is done in a sleep lab. During the test, monitors are attached to your body to record movement, brain activity, breathing, and other body functions.

Actigraphy – actigraphy records activity and movement with a monitor or motion detector that is usually worn on the wrist. The test is done at home, over several days and nights. It will record how much you actually sleep and when.

What can I do to improve my insomnia? — you can follow good" sleep hygiene" that means that you:

●sleep only long enough to feel rested and then get out of bed

●go to bed and get up at the same time every day

●do not try to force yourself to sleep. If you can't sleep, get out of bed and try again later.

●have coffee, tea, and other foods that have caffeine only in the morning

●avoid alcohol in the late afternoon, evening, and bedtime

●avoid smoking, especially in the evening

●keep your bedroom dark, cool, quiet, and free of reminders of work or other things that cause you stress

●solve problems you have before you go to bed

●exercise several days a week, but not right before bed

●avoid looking at phones or reading devices (" e-books") that give off light before bed. This can make it harder to fall asleep.

Other things that can improve sleep include:

●relaxation therapy, in which you focus on relaxing all the muscles in your body 1 by 1

●working with a counselor or psychologist to deal with the problems that might be causing poor sleep

Should I see a doctor or nurse? — yes. If you have insomnia, and it is troubling you, see your doctor or nurse. He or she might have suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Are there medicines to help me sleep? — yes, there are medicines to help with sleep. But you should try them only after you try the techniques described above. You also should not use sleep medicines every night for long periods of time. Otherwise, you can become dependent on them for sleep.

Insomnia is sometimes caused by mental health problems, such as depression or anxiety. If that's the case for you, you might benefit from an antidepressant rather than a sleep aid. Antidepressants often improve sleep and can help with other worries, too.

Can I use alcohol to help me sleep? — no, do not use alcohol as a sleep aid. Even though alcohol makes you sleepy at first, it disrupts sleep later in the night.

 What is insomnia? — insomnia is a problem with sleep. People with insomnia have trouble falling or staying asleep, or they do not feel rested when they wake up. Insomnia is not about the number of hours of sleep a person gets. Everyone needs a different amount of sleep.

What are the symptoms of insomnia? — people with insomnia often:


●have trouble falling or staying asleep

●feel tired or sleepy during the day

●forget things or have trouble thinking clearly

●get cranky, anxious, irritable, or depressed

●have less energy or interest in doing things

●make mistakes or get into accidents more often than normal

●worry about their lack of sleep

These symptoms can be so bad that they affect a person's relationships or work life. Plus, they can happen even in people who seem to be sleeping enough hours.

Are there tests I should have? — probably not. Most people with insomnia need no tests. Your doctor or nurse will probably be able to tell what is wrong just by talking to you. He or she might also ask you to keep a daily log for 1 to 2 weeks, where you keep track of how you sleep each night.

In some cases, people do need special sleep tests, such as" polysomnography" or" actigraphy"

●polysomnography – polysomnography is a test that usually lasts all night and that is done in a sleep lab. During the test, monitors are attached to your body to record movement, brain activity, breathing, and other body functions.

What Is Black Eye?

DNB GENERAL SURGERY, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mumbai
What Is Black Eye?

You can also take medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help with the pain and swelling. But people who have certain conditions or take certain medicines should not take ibuprofen. If you aren't sure whether you can take ibuprofen, ask your doctor or nurse.

Should I see a doctor or nurse? — see your doctor or nurse right away if you have any of these symptoms with your black eye:

●fever

●any problems seeing, such as blurred vision or double vision

●very bad pain in your eye, especially when trying to move it from side to side

●bleeding from the eye

●nausea and vomiting

●a slow heart rate

●trouble breathing through your nose

●a nose that looks crooked

Will I need tests? — maybe. Most people don't need tests for a black eye, but your doctor might want you to have an eye exam. Plus, if you are having trouble seeing or moving your eye, your doctor might take a special kind of x-ray called a ct scan. The ct scan will show if any of the bones around your eye are broken. It can also show if you have damage to the eyeball itself.


What is a black eye? — a black eye happens when something hits your eye, cheek, or nose and causes a bruise above or under your eye. Bruises happen when blood vessels under the skin break, but the skin isn't cut. When the blood vessels break, blood leaks into the tissues under the skin and makes it change color.

A black eye starts off red in color, and then turns blue or purple. As it heals, a black eye can turn green and yellow. Often, the swelling gets worse in the first day after the injury or when you wake up the next morning. Most black eyes heal in 1 to 2 weeks, but some take longer.

How is a black eye treated? — a black eye doesn't need treatment. It will get better on its own. But you can" ice" your black eye to make it feel better and help it heal. To do this, put a cold gel pack, bag of ice, or bag of frozen vegetables on the injured area every 1 to 2 hours, for 15 minutes each time. Put a thin towel between the ice (or other cold object) and your skin. Use the ice (or other cold object) for at least 6 hours after your injury. Some people find it helpful to ice longer, even up to 2 days after their injury.

Piles (Haemorrhoids) Basic Information For Everyone

DNB GENERAL SURGERY, MBBS

Piles (Haemorrhoids) Basic Information For Everyone

What are hemorrhoids? — hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum. They can cause itching and pain. Sometimes they can also make you bleed during a bowel movement.

In some cases, you can see or feel hemorrhoids around the outside of the rectum. In other cases, you cannot see them because they are hidden inside the rectum.

Should I see a doctor or nurse? — you should see a doctor or nurse if you have any bleeding or if your bowel movements look like tar. Bleeding could be caused by something other than hemorrhoids, so you should have it checked out.

If you do have hemorrhoids, your doctor or nurse can suggest treatments. But there some steps you can try on you your own first.

What can I do to keep from getting more hemorrhoids? — the most important thing you can do is to keep from getting constipated. You should have a bowel movement at least a few times a week. When you have a bowel movement, you also should not have to push too much. Plus, your bowel movements should not be too hard.

Being constipated and having hard bowel movements can make hemorrhoids worse. Here are some steps you can take to avoid getting constipated or having hard stools:

●eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They have fiber, which helps to increase bowel movements.

●take fiber powders, wafers, or pills. You should get 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day.

●take medicines called stool softeners such as docusate sodium or bulk-forming laxatives. Bulk-forming laxatives include psyllium seed, methylcellulosepolycarbophil, and wheat dextran. These medicines increase the number of bowel movements you have. They are safe to take and they can prevent problems later.


What can I do to reduce my symptoms? — some people feel better if they soak their buttocks in 2 or 3 inches of warm water. You can do this up to 2 to 3 times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not add soap, bubble bath, or anything to the water.

There are also medicines that you can get without a prescription. They are usually creams or ointments that you rub on your anus to relieve pain, itching, and swelling. Some hemorrhoid medicines come in a capsule (called a suppository) that you put inside your rectum. Others come in a cream that comes in a bottle with a nozzle that you put inside your rectum. It is ok to try these medicines. But do not use medicines that have hydrocortisone (a steroid medicine) for more than a week, unless your doctor or nurse approves.

What if the self-care steps do not work? — if you still have symptoms after trying the steps listed above, you might need treatments to destroy or remove the hemorrhoids.

One popular treatment is called" rubber band ligation" for this treatment, the doctor ties tiny rubber bands around the hemorrhoids. A few days later the hemorrhoids shrink and fall off. The doctor can also use lasers, heat, or chemicals to destroy hemorrhoids. But if none of these options works, there is always surgery to remove the hemorrhoids.

If I am suffering from external hemorrhoids, what is to eat/diat and the treatment.

Staying Healthy When You Travel

DNB GENERAL SURGERY, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mumbai
Staying Healthy When You Travel

Why should I think about my health before I travel? — there are a few reasons:

●travel itself can be a threat to your health. Flying, for example, can increase your risk of blood clots and other health problems.

●if you have an ongoing health problem, such as diabetes, it can be hard to find supplies or help if you get sick while you are away.

How do I keep from getting an infection when I travel? — if you are planning to go to africa, south america, or eastern europe, make an appointment at a travel clinic. The doctors and nurses there can help you prepare for your trip. Depending on your destination, you might need to:

●have 1 or more vaccines, weeks or months before you go. For example, if you are traveling to parts of africa or south america, you might need to get a vaccine against yellow fever.

●avoid ice, tap water, and certain foods or parts of foods that can carry germs. If you drink untreated water or eat certain foods, you might get an infection that causes diarrhea, vomiting, or other problems.

●treat the water you drink, to make sure it has no germs that could cause infection. To get rid of germs, you can boil water for 3 minutes and then let it cool. Another way to get rid of germs is to take 2 quarts of water, add 2 drops of 5% bleach, and wait 30 minutes.

●use bug spray that has deet or a chemical called picaridin. You should also wear clothes that protect you from insect bites. Plus, you should check yourself for insects and remove them if you find any. Insects can infect you with germs they carry when they bite or sting you.

●take medicines before and during your trip that can prevent infections such as malaria.

●wear shoes that cover your feet completely if you are anywhere that might have traces of dog or human waste in the sand or soil. This can happen in places that do not have good plumbing or that do not treat toilet water before dumping it. If you walk barefoot in places like these, you can get infected with worms.

What if I have a health condition, but I want to travel? — if you have an ongoing health problem, such as diabetes or heart disease, ask your doctor or nurse how to plan for your trip.

Many people with health concerns are able to travel without any problems. The key is to plan ahead, and to make sure you have all the medicines and supplies you might need. It's also important to bring a list of all the medicines you take, the doses, and why you take them.


Here are some examples of special needs people might have:

●some people with diabetes must carry pills, insulin, and syringes when they fly. They usually have a letter from their doctor explaining their needs.

●some people with lung or heart disease need extra oxygen when they fly. That's because the air on a plane that is in-flight tends to have less oxygen than the air on the ground. People who need oxygen on the plane must arrange it with the airline before they fly.

●some people with blood clotting problems or bad veins need to stand up and move around if they are on a long flight. Otherwise they can develop blood clots. They might also need to wear special stockings that improve blood flow in the legs.

What if I am pregnant and want to travel? — travel is safe for most pregnant women. But women who have had problems during pregnancy, such as high blood pressure, should limit air travel. There are no known risks of air travel for an unborn baby.

During long flights, pregnant women should stretch and flex their legs. They should also stand up and move around when it is safe to do so. This can prevent blood clots from forming in the legs.

Some of the vaccines and medicines given to travelers are not safe for pregnant women. If you want to travel to a country where infection is a concern, ask your doctor or nurse if you can safely go there. For example, many experts recommend that:

●pregnant women avoid travel to places where there is malaria

●women who are pregnant, or trying to get pregnant, avoid travel to places where there is zika virus

What else should I think about when I travel? — if you are going to:

●a sunny or warm place, make sure to wear sunblock and clothes that block the sun. Getting too much sun can lead to sunburns and increase the risk of skin cancer.

●the mountains or a place at high altitude, ask your doctor how you can keep from getting sick

●a place with a lot of traffic, keep in mind that the rules of the road are often different in other countries. Be extra careful when driving or crossing the street.
