Causes and treatment for Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Hello friends, main Dr.(major) Vipin Kakar. I am an ENT surgeon. Aaj main aapko kuch aise tips batauga hearing loss ke baare mein, bachho aur bado mein jo aapke bahut kaam aa sakte hai aur aap uspe amal karke uska faida utha sakte hai. Aajkal hearing loss navjaat shishu, jo ek din ka paida hua bachha, usme bhi pata chal jata hai ke hearing loss hai ya nahi hai. Ab hum hearing loss ki kyun baat kar rahe hai?  Kyunki hearing loss ek bahut hi common janam jaat problem hai jo ki 1 lakh mein se 250-400 bachho mein paayi jaati hai.

Agar hum thyroid ki problem ko socho toh wo 1 lakh mein se sirf 40 bachho mein hai, jab ke hearing loss 250-400 bachho mein hai. Toh videsho mein toh koi bhi discharge nahi ho sakta hospital se bina hearing ki jaach karaye. Toh ab hum 1 din ke bachhe ka hearing test karke ye pata laga lete hai ki usko aage treatment ki zarurat hai ya nahi. Ab hume ye jaanna hai ki hum kyun itna jaldi pata lagana chahte hai? Agar treatment hoga utna hi bachhe ko faida hoga. Jo janam se suntan aur bolta nahi hai, wo bachhe ka agar ilaaj der mein karayege toh results bilkul aadhe ho jayege. Aaj ki date mein hearing loss ka ilaaj sambhav hai. Ab hearing loss alag alag cheezon se hota hai toh aap agar apne kisi bachhe mein aapko lagta hai ki hearing loss hai ya wo theek tarah se aawazo pe response nahi de raha hai toh aap kripya karke apne ENT surgeon ke paas jayiye. Hearing loss ki treatment ke liye jis tarah ki bimaari hogi jis wajah se hearing loss hoga use treat kiya jaa sakta hai.

In case, agar usko hearing loss 90% se zada hai jisme hum koi dawai se nahi thik kar sakte toh unke liye aajkal humlog Cochlear implant bhi kar rahe hai. Cochlear implant ke liye ek surgery hai jisme do tarah ki machine lagti hai, ek sir ke andar jo surgery se lagayi jaati hai aur ek machine bahar lagti hai. Bahar wali machine aawaz ko catch karti hai aur andar wali machine ko bhejti hai. Toh kuch saal, therapy ke baad bachha ekdum normal bolne lag jaata hai. Main aapko Cochlear implant ka ek demonstration dena chahta hu. Jo machine andar lagti hai wo toh surgery madhyam se andar lag jayegi lifelong, dusri machine jo bahar lagti hai wo ye ek coin ke jitni hoti hai. Ye coin taqreeban itna bada hota hai aur ye sir mein baalon mein chup jaata hai. Bas itna hi aur ye aawaz catch karke andar wale implant ko bhejta hai aur therapy ke baad aapka bachha, agar aapne timely ilaaj karwaya hai toh woe k normal school mein jaane laayak ho jaata hai.

Kuch bachhe toh itna acha karte hai ke aap pata nahi laga sakte ki unka implant bhi hua hai ya nahi. Lekin har case mein implant nahi ho sakta hai. Kuch hearing loss simple kaan ki machine se bhi thik ho jaate hai aur kuch jinme kaano mein paani bhar jata hai. Toh paani nikaalne se bachha normal sunne lag jata hai. Ab main aapko kuch aisi cheezein videos mein dikhana chaahuga jisse aap dekh kar aapko vishwaas bhi ho jayega ki bachha implant ke baad ek normal school mein jaane laayak ho jata hai aur aapko ye pata lagana bahut hi mushkil hai ke kis bachhe ko implant hua hai aur kaunsa bachha normal hai.
(Another person in a video) Swar clinic mein ek choti si class thi ya conference tha usme bataya gaya ke Bilateral implantation bahar hone shuru ho gaye hai aur agar aap chaahe toh aap apne bachhe ka….aap aayiye, aap suniye ke kya kaha jaa raha hai aur aap decide kijiye. Toh humne wo class attend ki, then and there after the conference, we decided that we will go for this Bilateral Implantation. Aur Bilateral implant 2 saal baad hua, first implant and the second implant, mtlb 4 saal aur 6.5 saal uski age thi jab ye implant hua.

(The kid who got the implant) I thank cochlear implant company and Swar clinic, it is because of the innovation of Cochlear Implant Company and efforts of Swar clinic that I can hear and speak like other children. I am very happy that I am studying in a regular school and talk to my friends comfortably. I am thankful to Dr. Vipin uncle and Dr. Suneeta aunty for their efforts and making me what I am today. I would like to add that I have two implants, with two implants I have no problem in school and I have no fears also. I request all parents to go for Bilateral implant for their children. Thank you.

(Dr. Vipin Kakar in the video again) ab in cheezon ke baad agar aapko apne bachhe mein ya parivaar mein agar aapko koi sunne se related queries hai toh aap Lybrate ke through aap mujhe contact kar sakte hai.

Hi, I am 23 years old and suffering from backache and back pain. Consulted many doctors what should I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Weakness can be due to many reasons such as hormonal imbalance, disturbed lipid profile, improper sleep, certain deficiencies in the body and many more, get your tsh, t3, t4 and lipid profile profile test and take proper sleep and drink lots of water and take balanced diet.

Hello. Yes. Excessive traveling does cause back, neck and shoulder pain. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Lie down on bed on your back without pillow. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Pain in hip joint in not permanent but it happens when in sit. Is it due to hip joint or my problem of cervical spine compression.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Since inflammation is a common component of spinal stenosis, anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen .Massage for spinal stenosis can be an effective part of a treatment plan, because it can both temporarily relieve symptoms and also provide an overall wellness boost. Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal usually related to age-related conditions like arthritis, and can lead to chronic, debilitating pain. AND DO SOME PHYSICALTHERAPY .I may also recommend a physical therapist to learn exercises that can then be incorporated into a daily exercise routine. Don't exercise through pain and other symptoms.
