Though his behavior was tolerated by us. He will continue his rude behaviour until we beat him. Is it necessary to get him counselling by a psychiatrist.

The features described also suggest component of adhd. Get the detailed evaluation by a psychologist as the treatment modalities are different for adhd and dyslexia. Also decrease sugar content of the food. Get him to some swimming class or dance class to dissipate his energy.

What is parkinson's disease?

Diploma in Community Medicine, MBBS Alternative Medicine, Diploma in Acupuncture
Alternative Medicine,
hello Parkinson's disease�affects the way you move. It happens when there is a problem with certain nerve cells in the�brain.Normally, these nerve cells make an important chemical called dopamine. Dopamine sends signals to the part of your�brain�that controls movement. It lets your muscles move smoothly and do what you want them to do. When you have Parkinson's, these nerve cells break down. Then you no longer have enough dopamine, and you have trouble moving the way you want to.

I am 20 year old female and have some facial problems since birth. I can not close my left eyelid and it is always tearing. I cannot smile properly and it is so weird when smile goes to only one side. I can not lift my left eyebrows too. People used to mock me since childhood and it become too stressful to face public. I have lost all my confidence and happiness due to this problem and have searched about this situation. I found my condition is called facial nerve palsy. What should I do to cure this completely. Could this be cured completed. This made my life so pathetic and I am fed up of this. My future, happiness and confidence has been destroyed due to this. What should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrate user I empathise with you absolutely. People are ignorant and are pathetically insensitive to an illness which happens due not to your fault. Might be some birth trauma (as is common in forceps delivery.). First of all I shall explain what is facial nerve. You should have good knowledge about it which will help you to tide over the mental agony you are going through. We have 12 pairs of nerve bundles called cranial nerves 1.2. 3. Up to 12.12 on right and 12 on left coming out of the brain. The first nerves carry the smell sensation called olfactory nerves. The second carry visual sensation to the brain (helping us to see) called optic nerves. The facial nerve is cranial nerve number 7th. Each supplies all the muscles of one side of the face. Because of this we can smile. Frown. Move the eyelids. Close the eyes etc. When both nerves (right and left) are sound. The muscles move normally so that your smile is perfect. Eyes close equally. But when one nerve is damaged. It causes weakness in the muscles of that side. And the other side being sound will cause normal movement of muscles of that side. As a result the corner of the mouth will be dragged to the sound side because the other sided muscles can not move due to nerve paralysis. This causes facial asymmetry. And you can not close your eyes effectively in the affected side. There is a risk to this. Because your affected sided eyelid cannot close. Your cornea of that eye will be constantly exposed and become dry and will form ulcer called' corneal ulcer'this has to be prevented. Else your vision will be affected badly. Coming to treatment: you must consult a neuro physician to deal with this problem. Because it gas become an old problem. It will take time for correction. So never give up. Apply artificial tear eye drops (like tear plus) one drop in each eye every 8 hourly. To prevent corneal damage. You will need some form of physiotherapy including electrical stimulation of the facial nerve if applicable in your case. I expect a fair outcome in your case. Good luck!

Mr. lybrate-user, If your latest TSH level is 27.07 mU/L, then the current dosage of thyroxine is not adequate. It has to be increased. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet, that matches your caloric needs based on ideal body weight and extent of daily physical activity. Plus please do a blood glucose (fasting, PP) check up and come back with the results. Thanks.

He will need Preventive medicines for migraine. Plenty of oral fluids, meals at right time, adequate sleep, avoid late nights. Dark glasses with uv protection when going out in bright sunlight. Exercise 45 min a day. May see local neurologist again.

Masturbation is almost certainly good for your sex life. Masturbating doesn't reflect on your relationship. Masturbation doesn't have the health benefits that sex does. Masturbation is not risk, free. There's no" normal" amount of masturbation. Guys can get hung up on whether they masturbate too much. But it's not how many times you masturbate in a week (or day) that really matters, says logan levkoff, phd, a sexologist and sex educator. It's how it fits into your life. If you masturbate many times a day and have a healthy, satisfying life, good for you. But if you masturbate many times a day and you're missing work or giving up on sex with your partner because of it, consider seeing a sex therapist.
