Regarding the Gases / hard stools & back head pain etc, since the problem had become so much that I decided to go for "Lipo endoscopy" surgery for my Hiatus Hernia, last year in Oct 15 thinking that this was the root cause of all my symptoms, but unfortunately, all my efforts of surgery went in vain and the problems are same or rather bad as they were couple of year back in Renukoot or earlier. Since there was No relief from surgery, I again visited a Good Gastroenterologist, in Bhopal, in Dec 2015, who prescribed the following medications-- Diagnosis--(IBS/post operative case of Hiatus hernia/Painful defecation/Also he advised Psychiatric help) Pantose-D (before B/F) Cap Velgut depof 37 (morning) medigas axiwill (night) But again No relief as usual and I stopped his medicines. You would recall my symptoms as reported to you in Renukoot @ Sept/Dec 2007 and there after on mails. By & large all the previous symptoms still persists and I have never come out of the same ever, as on date. Your Diagnosis was--Hypertension/Hiatus hernia/IBS Medications were Amplopress-Z 1OD Tenoric 1OD Serlift 25 mg 1OD cap omez-D 1BD Mucaine gel Altiva-D, then replaced by Alerid-D and finally Feliz S plus in the night After I left Renukoot since I was not directly in touch with you, lately I tried Homeopathic. The good homeopath also tried various good medicines for last 1 year or so particularly for Lower GI tract and to increase the mortality of rectum for removing the trapped Gases/hard stool in the large intestine ,but unfortunately they are also not working for me. Hence I am back to the square one. My current symptoms are by & large the same as you saw in Renookut. Rather it has taken more sever form. My daily routine has come to a standstill and not able to go to work anymore. I am at home only trying to somehow get rid of the stupid health problem Symptoms as on date Severe back head pain/biting sensation at the time of wake up Severe sprain/strain/biting in neck and shoulders/entire back. Almost the whole day In Fact the whole body suffer through strain/muscular sprains and biting feeling.(while gives temporary relief with head or full body massage). Heaviness over the eyes Gases/Bloating/belching starts severe after B/F till Lunch time Very weak feeling as long as the stomach is bloated with gases--between B/F and Lunch the trapped gases do not come out at all creating all the undue pressures on neck/head etc Hard stools in colon--very difficult to defecate Dryness of mouth /lips Too much lethargy--don't feel like doing anything. Feels like only lying down in bed or taking frequent naps across the entire day /very sad mode. Don't feel like talking to anybody or going out or do any activity. This feeling is giving me fears of how I will sustain my Job or continue working. Please note that the problem starts in the early morning since wake up and persists the whole day. It is severe since early morning and peaks till Lunch. after Lunch I am forced to go to bed lying down pressing the pillow on stomach side, so as to expul the trapped gases since last night/morning. Feel slightly better after the gases comes out in 1 hour of lying down in bed. The story doesn't end here. The 2nd cycle of Lunch gases starts build up and gives the same symptoms. Again & again. So the 24 hr cycle continues. After trying various medications over a period of long time---I feel I have got depression clubbed with Lower GI severity where in gases/hard stools are trapped and creates all the issues. Please Let me know your diagnosis and suggest the best medication to get rid of this chronic problem Once for all. I am taking the following medication now-- Pentose-D-before B/F (since I do not have any acid reflux, please let me know whether this medicine is needed or not.) Nebistar SA 1OD cardace 1OD Lipvas 20 mg for cholesterol Feliz S plus in the night Aloe vera Gel with fibre-2 times/day Note--{As long as the stomach is Bloated & is full of gases, the back head/neck and shoulder is terrible and the moment the gases evacuate/expelled the head/neck/shoulders etc become completely light, Hence it will be very important to focus on how to eliminate the bloating/gases/hard stools/and symptoms of strain/depression} Look forward to your valuable advice immediately.

First I let you know that you are suffering with irritable bowel syndrome ,but problem is that more than 70℅population suffering from this but they are not aware of it. It is not a disease to be cured but it is a condition which is due to depression and stressful conditions in our life which give arise these symptoms, once these symptoms occurs in patients life he focused on these symptoms and thus he increasing these symptoms more and sometimes when some conditions and seasonal changes inhance your depression and anxiety your symptoms get increased. So I suggest you that first you know the root cause of your problems is your mental state. Second you need symptomatic treatment of your problems. In Ayurveda I will suggest you to take some medicine and meditation and pranayam, specific exercise and thus you will be able to cure your problems completely. I will advice you to take boil vegetables as much as you can ,avoid sugar and tea and coffee as much as you can. Cure is possible, consult me as soon as possible.

Smoking has been always associated with gastritis. So I would recomend you to quit smoking as you atr smoking only 4 cigrattes a day so quittung should be very easy for you. Other than this what you can do is change your dietry habits. Eat food which will make your stool soft in nature like lots of salads. You can eat apple which will also help you a lot and drink plenty of water. This is the natural ways you should can try. But I can precribe you medicine only after there is no improvement with the above.

Migraine - Identifying the Early Signs!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, Fellow in Pain Management, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Delhi
Migraine - Identifying the Early Signs!

Headaches and migraines can vary drastically depending on their duration, specific symptoms and the person they are affecting. The more you know about your specific type of headache or migraine, the better prepared you will be to treat them—and possibly even prevent them. The two types of migraine are- 

  1. Migraine without aura: The majority of migraine sufferers have Migraine without Aura. 
  2. Migraine with aura: Migraine with Aura refers to a range of neurological disturbances that occur before the headache begins, usually lasting about 20-60 minutes.

Symptoms of migraine vary and also depend on the type of migraine. A migraine has four stages: prodrome, aura, headache and postdrome. But it is not necessary that all the migraine sufferers experience all the four stages.

Prodrome: The signs of this begin to appear a day or two days before the headache starts. The signs include depression, constipation, food cravings, irritability, uncontrollable yawning, neck stiffness and hyperactivity.
Migraine Aura: Auras are a range of symptoms of the central nervous system. These might occur much before or during the migraine, but most people get a migraine without an aura. Auras usually begin gradually and increase in intensity. They last for an hour or even longer and are 

  • Visual: Seeing bright spots, various shapes, experiencing vision loss, and flashes of light
  • Sensory: Present in the form of touch sensations like feeling of pins and needles in the arms and legs
  • Motor: Usually related with the movement problems like the limb weakness
  • Verbal: It is related with the speech problems

Headache: In case of a migraine attack one might experience:

  • Pain on both sides or one side of the head
  • Pain is throbbing in nature
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Sensitivity to smells, sound and light
  • Vision is blurred
  • Fainting and lightheadedness

Postdrome: This is the final phase of the migraine. During this phase one might feel fatigued, though some people feel euphoric.

Red flags that the patient may be having underlying serious disorder not migraine

  1. Onset of headaches >50 years 
  2. Thunderclap headache - subarachnoid haemorrhage 
  3. Neurological symptoms or signs 
  4. Meningism 
  5. Immunosuppression or malignancy 
  6. Red eye and haloes around lights - acute angle closure glaucoma 
  7. Worsening symptoms 
  8. Symptoms of temporal arteritis

These patients require CT scan / MRI or CSF examination. Most Migraine patients do not need these tests. 

Diagnosis of Migraine: Usually migraines go undiagnosed and thus are untreated. In case you experience the symptoms regularly then talk to the doctor, who evaluates the symptoms and can start a treatment. You can also be referred to a neurologist who is trained to treat the migraines and other conditions. During the appointment the neurologist usually asks about the family history of headaches and migraines along with your symptoms and medical history.

The doctor might advise for some tests like:

  1. Blood Tests: These reveal problems with the blood vessel like an infection in the spinal cord and brain.
  2. CT scan: Used to diagnose the infections, tumors, brain damage, and bleeding that cause the migraines.
  3. MRI: This helps to diagnose the tumors bleeding infections, neurological conditions, and strokes.
  4. Lumbar Puncture: For analyzing infections and neurological damages. In lumbar puncture a thin needle is inserted between the two vertebrae to remove a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid for analysis.

Treatments

Migraine treatments can help stop symptoms and prevent future attacks.

Many medications have been designed to treat migraines. Some drugs often used to treat other conditions also may help relieve or prevent migraines. Medications used to combat migraines fall into two broad categories:

  • Pain-relieving medications. Also known as acute or abortive treatment, these types of drugs are taken during migraine attacks and are designed to stop symptoms.
  • Preventive medications. These types of drugs are taken regularly, often on a daily basis, to reduce the severity or frequency of migraines.

Your treatment strategy depends on the frequency and severity of your headaches, the degree of disability your headaches cause, and your other medical conditions.

Some medications aren't recommended if you're pregnant or breast-feeding. Some medications aren't given to children. Consult a doctor find the right medication for you.

Try kegel exercises this is a great way of strengthening your pelvic muscles and gain strength for sex. It is like going to the gym, but for sex. Let me tell you how to do kegel exercises. You have to practice it first. When you urinate, try to stop the flow of urine without your hands, just by contracting your muscles. The muscles you contract then are the pelvic muscles that are used during sex. Do not do this while urinating again, you can do this while you are sitting or standing, while working or doing other things. Once you know how to contract them try doing this a few times every day and this will strengthen them. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day. You should see results in a few week.

My son (10 years) still wets the bed in the night. Although he is very confident, cheerful & active kid but till now have no control on his bedwetting. Please advise

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hi , You can try taking to your son to the bathroom before going to bed and ask him not to drink water at all atleast an hour before going to bed. Also wake him up at least twice in the night and make him go to the bathroom. Gradually this practice should make him aware of when to wake up and use the toilet in the night. If the problem persists, you can try homeopathic medicines for him as there are very good medicines in homeopathy for the same.
