Hello from about 2 months I have strong vertigo that do not even sleep well . I've noticed that I also dilated pupils . I went two weeks ago by the neurologoneurologo and he prescribed supplements Melaxina Te Pineal Tens. No improvement in fact I always feel worse . Before I had a treatment with Cipralex drops for irritable bowel and took 7 drops in the evening before going to bed but the neurologist told me to take them off because they could be the cause of expansion but the fact is that I have always these problems . What may be somebody can tell me? I am very worried.

There are 2 main causes for vertigo. 1) diseases of the ear 2) diseases of the brain. Diseases of the ear causing vertigo are bppv (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), meniere's disease, labyrinthitis, trauma to the inner ear, toxicity due to medicines. These diseases can occur at any age and are usually associated with nausea and vomiting. Examination by an ent doctor will help to come to a diagnosis. Diseases of the brain causing vertigo are bleeding or interrupted blood supply to the cerebellum (area of the brain responsible for balance) and its connections, tumours. These conditions are commonly seen in elderly and are not associated with nausea and vomiting. They can be ruled out by mri. I hope this answered your question. Let me know if you have any other specific questions. Regards,

Dear user we can very well understand your concern for indigestion. This medication contains digestive enzymes, which are natural substances needed by the body to help break down and digest food. It is used when the pancreas cannot make or does not release enough digestive enzymes into the gut to digest the food. Depending on the amount of enzymes in your product, it may be used for indigestion, as a supplement, or as replacement therapy (e. G. In chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, cancer of the pancreas, after surgery on the pancreas or gut). Take this medication by mouth with meals and snacks only on the prescription of a registered medical practitioner. The dosage is based on your medical condition, diet, and response to treatment. If you are using the tablet form of the medication, make sure not to keep it in the mouth because doing so can cause irritation to the gums and cheeks. Swallow the medication with water. For the chewable tablets, chew thoroughly before swallowing. If you are using the capsule form of the medication and swallowing is difficult, the capsule may be opened and the powder mixed with food or liquid. Be careful not to inhale any of the powder because doing so can irritate the inside of the nose or cause an asthma attack. Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. If your doctor has recommended that you follow a special diet, it is very important to follow the diet to get the most benefit from this medication. Do not change brands or dosage forms of this product without consulting your doctor or pharmacist. Different products may contain different amounts of the digestive enzymes. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 6 Signs You Are Suffering from It!

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Gastroenterology, MNAMS
Gastroenterologist, Faridabad
Irritable Bowel Syndrome - 6 Signs You Are Suffering from It!

A chronic condition, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder of the large intestine that exhibits symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramps, gas and diarrhea. The symptoms of IBS can be controlled by making lifestyle changes such as incorporating certain modifications to your diet and reducing or managing stress levels. For severe symptoms, you may require medications.

Symptoms
The symptoms of IBS can vary; some of them are:

  1. Bloated stomach
  2. Abdominal cramps
  3. Flatulence
  4. Constipation or diarrhea
  5. Presence of mucus in the stool
  6. Some other severe symptoms of IBS include sudden loss of weight and rectal bleeding.

Causes
The exact cause of IBS is not known, but there are certain factors that may act as triggers. There are muscles lining the walls of the intestine that relax and contract in a proper rhythm, thus allowing the passage of food through the intestine. In case of IBS, these contractions tend to be irregular, resulting in gas, bloating and diarrhea.

Some of the factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Hormones: Hormonal changes can play a role in triggering IBS. For a woman, the symptoms can worsen during her menstrual cycles.
  2. Stress: Studies show that symptoms of IBS considerably increase if you are subject to increased stress levels over a prolonged period of time.
  3. Foods: Certain foods such as spices, chocolate, milk and broccoli can act as triggers.
  4. Other Disorders: In some cases, other underlying conditions such as bacterial overgrowth or infectious diarrhea can cause IBS.

Treatment
The initial step to manage the symptoms of this condition is to make prompt changes in your diet, such as eliminating spicy foods and dairy products, at least till the symptoms subside. It is advised to resort to medications only if the dietary changes fail to yield results.

The various treatments are:

  1. Anti-diarrheal Medications: Anti-diarrheal medication such as ‘loperamide’ is used to control and manage diarrhea.
  2. Fiber Supplements: Certain fiber supplements such as ‘methylcellulose’ and ‘psyllium’ can help in managing constipation.
  3. Antibiotics: Antibiotics are prescribed only if the symptoms result from bacterial overgrowth in the intestine. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

Hi boil 1 ripe banana in 1 cup of milk, mash well. Take 3-4 times a day. Make an ointment by mixing an equal amount of powdered long pepper and turmeric with milk (preferably cow’s milk). Apply this on the external piles.
