Is Sleep Paralysis a Symptom of a Serious Problem? Yesterday left side full not sense (top to bottom like head, hand and leg) this is 1st time happening to me.

Usually sleep paralysis affects the entire body and is part of narcolepsy which includes cataplexy (neck quickly losing power e.f. While Laughing) and excessive daytime sleepiness. Since your episode was so asymmetric you should be very intensively evaluated to rule out a transient loss of blood supply to one part of your brain (a transient ischaemic attack or TIA)

People suffering from Parkinsons disease has to live with it lifelong, as it has no cure. The treatment options for this disease include oral medications (Levodopa, dopamine agonist, Mono Amine Oxidase Type (MAO-B) Inhibitors, etc), surgical interventions (Deep Brain Stimulation, Neuro-stimulator and Extension) and adjunct therapies like physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy).

Your symptoms probably have nothing to do with hiv. It doesn't develop so quickly. Also since your tests have been negative I think there is nothing much to worry about. But it would be better to know the hiv status of your partner.

Yes, dbs surgery might help. You can check with your neuro-surgeon for details regarding this. In my opinion, knowing the severity/stage of parkinsonism he is in presently, will be a big deciding factor. Till stage 3, you can conservatively manage the symptoms with drugs and therapy. I have seen therapeutic activities to be very promising in such cases. Clients have shown 50 - 85% improvement in functional independence.

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 sir, mouth cancers present as ulceration, over growth, bleeding, difficulty in swallowing or eating, Lymph node enlargement in neck region. For numbness you must see a neurophysician. One need to examine in person to understand what kind of numbness or swelling present, as it is not signifying any particular disease. There may be some tumours having paraneoplastic symptoms but can't relate without examination.

Causative Factors Behind Insomnia

Ask Free Question
Insomnia is the condition of acute sleeplessness, and it takes a heavy toll on your mood, your energy levels, and your ability to concentrate and work during the day. Some of the most common symptoms of the condition are:

You find it difficult to fall asleep even if you are tired
Once you wake up in the middle of the night, you cannot get back to sleep
You cannot work or concentrate on anything during the day
You stay mostly fatigued, or irritated throughout the day
You have to depend on pills or alcohol to fall asleep.
You wake up very early in the morning, no matter how late you sleep

What could be the causes for insomnia?

Insomnia might last just a few days if it is induced by some temporary cause, like stress at your workplace, or any other personal issue you can be facing. However, when the cause is a long rooted one, insomnia might persist for a long time. There can be a mix of many causes for that to happen:

Psychological stress or other emotional discomforts

Common psychological problems like anxiety, depression, chronic work stress, grief, and also bipolar disorder can be the causes for insomnia.

Illness or other medical problems

There can be many medical causes or other illnesses at the root of insomnia like allergies, acute asthma, hyperthyroidism, Parkinson's disease, kidney related diseases and cancer as well.

Medications

There can be many drugs, which might be prescribed by your doctor, but still be responsible for insomnia. These include antidepressants, corticosteroids like thyroid hormone medicines, few blood pressure medications, certain contraceptives and stimulants for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).

Sleep Disorders

Insomnia, though in itself is a sleep disorder, can also be the symptoms for other sleep disorders like sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and other disorders related to jet lag or if you are working on a late night shift.

In addition to these causes, some daily lifestyle habits might act as triggers to insomnia, which include:

Consumption of large amounts of caffeine on a regular basis
Developing irregular sleep schedules
Taking your smartphone to bed and ending up spending a lot of time with it in the night
Eating late in the evening

Migraine is a kind of relapsing headache. Its symptoms include - episodic unilateral or bilateral, severe and pulsating headaches, associated at times with nausea and vomiting, relieved momentarily on rest or taking medications and aggravated by precipitating factors. The treatment of migraine is mainly done for relief from acute headache attacks and later treatments to prevent future relapses. Also treatment of factors which tend to cause relapses is also important. Consult a headache specialist for a composite and complete treatment. You may contact me online for further queries and assistance in treatment in this regard.
