Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have dissociation along with depression. Dissociation is a common phenomenon. Most people will experience dissociation at some point in their lives. It becomes a disorder, like in dissociative identity disorder (DID), when it is so frequent or severe that it interrupts a person’s daily life. One common technique used for dissociation is called grounding. It is a technique that helps a person regain connection with his or her physical body. This may often end the dissociation, or will at least make it more bearable. When a person dissociates, he or she may practice the technique of grounding. There are many different ways to practice grounding. The main idea is to do something that brings a person back in touch with his or her body. Use physical sensations. Try touching the table, feeling the grass, or smelling a flower. Doing activities that enhance your physical sensations will help you to come back to a solid state. It has helped me to wash my face with water, or hold a couple of ice cubes. Speak truths out loud. It has been helpful for me to try to speak the truth out loud. This can be things like, “I am 31 years old,” or “I live in Indianapolis.” This will help to make sense of the reality that the person lives in, as we can often get confused about our lives when we dissociate. Try laughter. This is a big one. If you’re alone, try turning on some comedy on YouTube. If you are with a trusted friend, try asking them to make you laugh. Better yet, tell your loved ones ahead of time that laughter helps when you dissociate. It will help you to feel your internal body, it will lighten the seriousness of the situation, and it may bring you out of dissociation. Overall, be patient with yourself. Grounding techniques take practice and may feel unusual in the initial moments. Remember that dissociation is not usually dangerous and that it will pass. I would suggest you to consult a psychologist. You can consult with me too. All the best.

If you meant tremor in hand you should consult with consultant in general medicine or neurologist urgently. Tremor in hand is one of the early sign of cerebellar (related to cerebellum of brain) disorder.

Recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
There are certain foods that can help in avoiding onset of alzheimers dementia. Foods containing high levels of anti oxidants and omega acids are beneficial in general for nervous system. But in case of advanced cases of alzheimers, along with healthy lifestyle and good food habits, medications are necessary. Currently there is no evidence of complete cure of alzheimers either by medications or with use of any particular food items. Currents medications however prolong the progress of illness and improves quality of life for the patients.

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine

I think follow up should be done under allopathic system i.e. by thyroid profile or TSH for hypothyroidism. Rest you have to see the response of the treatment.

I am suffering from migraine since 1year and was treating on homeopathy drugs. Eventually it got cured but as soon as I stopped taking medicines again I am suffering from migraine. Does it have any permanent cure?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Permanent cure for migraine is not possible with medicines alone. You need to make permanent changes on your lifestyle. Migraine has certain triggers. Some of them are avoidable like specific food items - fish, cottage cheese, peanuts, artificial food colors and flavors. If any of the above products trigger your migraine then avoid them. Sunlight, bright lights tend to cause migraine in some. Wear glasses to protect yourself from sun. Eating food at the right time is very very important. If you can manage to do this, you will be able to control migraine to a great extent neck exercises, deep breathing exercises - these are gain extremely beneficial in prevention and cure of migraine. Practice them everyday for best results.

When you sit crosslegged and taking your child on your lap, there could be atemporary reduction in blood flow to the legs and this could be due to weight gain or nerve compression or blood vessel compression. For your height, of 5.3 feet, your weight is ok, so may be the problems could be due to cramps in muscles and this can be best helped by sitting with legs straight if you sit crosslegged, you must change position everyf ew minutes to allow good blood flow. If tingling numbness if there, it signifies vitamin or calcium deficiency and its better to meet a doctor before popping a pill generally many pregnant women take calcium off and on in pregnancy but do not take calcium in postd elivery period. If you are still feeding your child or if you have not taken calcium in the post delivery period, perhaps you must visit the gynecologist who will evaluate you and provide the necessary treatments.

I had pain in my right side body. From head to toe. Sometimes in right back side of head got dumb. Mostly elbow of right hand had pain, its more on bending hand from elbow, this pain is very much. Sometimes right eye had also pain. Like got pressure in eye, in short full right body. Pain. I also tried some exercise but it increase the pain.(Full day using computer. I think its due to continue use of it) please give proper solution. Thanks.

FRACP, DM - Neurology

I think you have an atypical headache syndrome which could be related to bad spine posture due to use of laptop/computer. You take time to relax after 30 mts of continuous use of computer. Neck relaxation exercises would help.

Hi there ~ if you are on epilepsy medication for 30 years you may want to discontinue the medication after doctors opinion since you haven't had a breakthrough seizure for a long time. You need to do so by tapering the dose of the medication slowl Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I have been observing high level of sugar in my blood levels around 180 fasting and 220 normally on some days, normally it remains within limits. I am not controlling my diet on days when sugar level is normal I am 37 with no family history of high sugar levels. Kindly suggest what tests could be done to identify the problem n what do you diagnose out of it. I have been on valprin chrono 500 due to epileptic seizures which occurred around 12 yrs back.

Hba1c is most reliable test and gives an approximate idea of past 3 months sugar level. At your age target should be near to 6.5 with diet exercise and medication. Along with hba1c, following tests needs to be done as you are on anti epileptics as well. Fbs ppbs urine routine serum creatinine lipid profile liver profile.
