It could be due to prolapse intervertebral disc or neuropathic pain. Take short term analgesics for immediate pain relief if problem is of acute nature. However, it is better to get diagnosed and start therapy accordingly. For more, you may visit me.

Dear , zeptol (carbamazepine) is a teratogenic drug, that may harm the foetus. It is ok to take it now. You delay pregnancy by few years (5 years). By the time of pregnancy you may try gradually tapering and stopping it. If not possible few other safer anti-epileptic medicines like lamotrigine may be tried, although small risk of cleft palate is there, but no very serious risk.

Headaches due to migraine is very common these days especially in young adults because of there lifestyle and working environment. Sometimes pain is very severe on one side of the head.  So I would recommend you to avoid stress and anxiety, quiet the mind from distractions. Stay calm positive and do deep breathing exercises, listen some music that would give you some relaxation. If pain is severe then place ice pack over forehead and lie down for some time to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full life. Massage your head using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body. You can use mint or clove spray for inhaling in case of headache. If pain is severe you can also apply ginger paste over the painful area. Avoid taking caffeine, alcohol, phenylethylamine (found in chocolate and cheese), tyramine (found in nuts and fermented meats, cheeses, and soy), and aspartame (in many artificially sweetened foods) as sometimes these all exaggerate pain instead use basil leaves tea or ginger tea boiled nicely in water without milk. Regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. Avoid fasting - Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings. Make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. Take min 7 hours of sleep. Make a habit of 20-25 min walking daily along with some meditations. If required then only take pain relieving tablets. For more help or instructions please consult. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.

How to tackle Migraine

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist
Ask Free Question
Migraine can be tackled by a combination of medical and lifestyle measures.
Medical measures: if you have frequent episodes, you will need 2 types of medicines- one to be taken daily for a period of at least 6 months as prophylaxis and 2nd to be taken during attacks of headache for quick relief of pain. These medication should be started only after consultation with a neurologist and ruling out other rare but serious causes of headache.

Lifestyle measures:
Lifestyle measures play an equal, if not greater role in management of migraine. They include:
1) regular intake of meals. Avoid fasting, eat breakfast, lumnch and dinner at fixed timings.
2) good 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep daily
3) avoiding foods that precipitate migraine like cheese, chocolate, excess coffee/tea and sour foods

In addition, you may have to temporarily avoid excessive travel and exposure to sunlight which can precipitate headache. Yoga/ meditation and relaxation techniques will help immensely.

If your migraines are accompanied by pain in the back of the neck and top of the head, you should have your neck muscles and cervical spine evaluated. Normal pain killers will not work.

Some types of epilepsies are not curable and are there lifelong. Patient needs to continue drugs lifelong. However every 3 to 5 years we try to withdraw medications so as to look whether patient becomes drug free. In case there is reappearance of seizures then drugs are again started and then next time while withdrawing the drugs they are tappered much slowly.

I, at times, forget the name of a person I very well know. Like in a party I want to introduce to my wife someone whom I know. I feel at a loss to find that the name of the person whom I want to introduce does not come to my mind. Like forgetting the name of a film actor while watching a film on the TV screen. Otherwise I have a sharp memory. I can mentally multiply or add/subtract numbers, do other calculations. Like I buy something. Before the shopkeeper calculates the amount I readily come out with the figure. Being a lawyer I can remember judgments and the ratios drawn from the judgments. But I forget the names. GENERALLY BAD IN REMEMBERING NAMES. Is it the onset of dementia like Alzheimer's?

Dear sir, this alone is not suggestive of dementia. This kind of thing can happen in younger people as well, but more commonly in the elderly. Please make sure your thyroid levels and doses are appropriate. Also get a vitamin B12 level done if not already done before. If all of these are normal, then we need to keep a watch on this to see if there is any major worsening in this. Please bear in mind that the very fact that one is paying attention to this may falsely elevate the number of instances of forgetting because incidents which would have otherwise been ignored will now be taken into account. Therefore, I said that only if there is a sudden or severe worsening in these symptoms we need to worry. otherwise there does not seem to be a problem.

Mr. Lybrate-user, bells palsy is usually a self limiting condition, if no specific cause can be attributed. There are few medications which can hasten the recovery. You also need to go for rehabilitation procedures like galvanic stimulation and facial exercises. The most important thing for you now is to protect your unclosable eye from exposure and dryness, to prevent loss of vision.
