My age is 35. I suffered from brain stroke since last 3 months. I am taking medicine under supervision of local doctor. Mobility of my right hand is marginal. Speech is partly unclear. Recalling is not normal. PL advice how long it will take to become normal as I have paralysed in my right side.

If you suffered a stroke and recovering you may wait for another three months for any further improvements to manifest. By that time 95% of what you are destined to get back will return. If you have hypertension/diabetes they need to be controlled too. If you can inform the drugs advised further suggestions can be made.

My mother was suffering from bell's palsy for the past two months. Now she has recovered but she feels a lot of tightness on the nerves on both sides of the forehead. Please suggest me some remedy to relieve this problem.

Bells palsy will lead to weakness of the muscles and it will slowly recover with physiotherapy. All her symptoms will recover slowly. Continue physiotherapy.

Difficult to say regarding medication. But it seems he might have seizure episode during that 2 to 3 minute of memory loss. A EEG would be a better investigation. Consult a neurologist.

Sir I'm female 30 years old. I'm suffering from Migraine and I'm on medication since 2003 but don't feel much effect. Dr. advised me Mbeta 40, Ciplar 10, Propornol 80, topomac 25. Almost I have taken every kind of medicine for my problem now I'm having burning sensation in my left side of head every time. Not any medicine is providing me relief so far. Actually in 2003 My parents got divorced and I got depressed a lot. After that I was in relationship for about 7 year and on just before my marriage, our relation broke. This gave biggest ever shock to me and I was on physiatrist treatment for 6 months but problem was same. Now my mood remain down and dont feel happy at all, sometime feels pain in my heart also. Just want to spent time alone and I weep alone. Want to come out off all such situation.

Hello. My suggestion for you is - continue with the medicines you are on, but gradually and slowly reduce the frequency of use and then stop them completely later and side by side start with the homoeopathic medicines which I am going to advise you, so that they will take start taking the care of your problem. Start with 1 dose of Natrum Mur. 200 daily at 11am, Brahmi (Bacopa Monierri) Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water thrice a day and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night for 15 days. After that report to me about intensity of your sufferings, will recommend you accordingly. For management part: do breathing exercises (like pranayam, anulom- vilum) early in the morning before sunrise, for relieving stress from your body! If possible, you can learn yoga from a qualified yoga-teacher/ instructor.

Migraine

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ghaziabad

A common neurological syndrome, Migraine is characterized by altered bodily perceptions, severe pounding headaches, nausea and irritability. This pounding or pain usually begins in the forehead, the side of the head or around the eyes and gradually gets worse. Bright lights or loud noises can worsen the condition. The headache can last for two hours or even up to two or three days.

Causes

Change in weather conditions, missing a meal, stress, alcohol and certain types of food items are considered to be common causative factors of Migraine. About 50% of women claim that their menstrual periods happen to be a significant trigger. Additionally, allergic reactions, exposure to loud noises or certain odors, smoking, or long exposures to computer screens/televisions could lead to Migraine attacks.

Symptoms

Ayurvedic View

The traditional science of Ayurveda does not regard Migraine as a case of prolonged headaches. On the contrary, it considers this condition to be caused by deep-rooted problems, including a sensitive nervous system and impaired digestion.

Improper diet and lifestyle causes aggravation of Pitta (Ayurvedic humor representing Fire) in the body. In an aggravated state, Pitta impairs digestion, leading to production of digestive impurities (known as ama). This ama gets stored in the manovahi strotas (mind channels), thereby becoming the cause for pains in migraine.

A sensitive nervous system lowers the ojas (energy) in the body. Ojas is the essence of all body tissues and provides strength to the nervous system and body. If you have a strong nervous system, you are able to fight against problems and carry on with your work with a healthy mind. Lowering of ojas causes migraine-like problems.

Ayurvedic treatment of Migraine therefore is centered on the pacification of Pitta Dosha, and restoration of digestive function in the body. Nervine tonics are also recommended to enhance the ojas, relax the mind and give strength to the nervous system.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body.

  • Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains.

  • Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta.

  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun.

  • Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system.

  • Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain.

Home Remedies

  • If there is a burning sensation with you migraine headache, apply a paste of ground clay or sandalwood powder mixed with rose water.

    In case of migraine headache due to inflamed sinuses, inhale steam with vinegar added to the water.

  • Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes.

I am 22 yrs old male I have hand shivering problem when I am in tension. Give me a solution.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Hi , I can understand your concern. Shaking of hands at the time of tension is apparently because of anxiety. At your age either anxiety or neurological illness appears to be two most important causes. Since you have noticed it at the time of tension, anxiety appears to be a real cause. Get a thyroid profile (tsh, t3, t4) done to rule out a thyroid disorder. I will ask you some questions to know whether you are suffering from anxiety or not. Do you remain always worried, can not relax, always feel on the edge? do you always feel that some wrong may happen? do you have disturbed sleep, excessive sweating, palpitations, dryness of throat and mouth, choking sensation, breathlessness, dizziness, chest discomfort etc? if you have few of the above mentioned symptoms then it points towards anxiety. You may require a psychiatric consultation for prescription of some anxiolytic medicines for cure.

I am 17 years old and I am facing constant headaches. Is it normal for me as I travel a lot in sun. Or is it a matter of cancers or a symptom of migraine?

Frequent headaches which are pulsatile associated with nausea and vomiting, increased by going onto the sun and relieved on taking sleep and medications could be possibly migraine. Brain tumours can also present with headaches, but have much severe types with associated symptoms like fits, unconsciousness etc. It would however be prudent to visit a psychiatrist or neurologist to get your complaints of headache evaluated completely consult me online for any further queries or assistance.
