I have seizures when I get stressed out. My doctor says I shouldn't be on seizure medication. My question should I be?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Seizure disorders are independent diseases and usually not precipitated only by stress. If you have recently started having seizures please check out whether you were on adderall then, and what dose you were taking. Though less common adderall can decrease seizure thresholds and cause fits. Consult a physician for opinion.

Brain Surgery - When It Is Required?

MBBS, DNB, Fellowship in Neurosurgery

Brain Surgery - When It Is Required?

Brain surgery involves several medical procedures, which incorporate fixing issues with the brain, including changes in the tissues of the brain, cerebrospinal fluid and brain blood flow. Brain surgery is quite a complicated method of surgery and the type of surgery to be conducted depends on the underlying conditions.

Reasons for Brain Surgery:
Brain surgery is performed for the correction of physical brain abnormalities. These abnormalities could occur because of diseases, birth defects and injuries. A brain surgery is required when the following conditions arise in the brain:

  1. Abnormal blood vessels
  2. Aneurysm
  3. Bleeding
  4. Blood clots in the brain
  5. When the protective tissue or dura is damaged
  6. Epilepsy
  7. Due to nerve damage
  8. Parkinson’s disease
  9. Any kind of pressure after an injury
  10. Abscesses
  11. Skull fractures
  12. In case of stroke and tumors

A surgery may not be required for all the above mentioned conditions, but in case of many, a brain surgery is very important as the conditions may worsen health problems.

Types of brain surgeries:

  1. Craniotomy: During this open brain surgery, an incision is made in the scalp, and a hole is created in the skull, near the area, which is being treated. After this process is complete, the hole or bone flap is secured in its place using plates or wires.
  2. Biopsy: This form of brain surgery helps in the removal of a small amount of brain tissues or tumors. After removal, the tissues or tumors are examined under a microscope. The creation of a small incision and a hole in the skull is indicated as a part of this process.
  3. Minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery: This form of brain surgery enables the removal or lesions and tumors via the nose and sinuses. Private parts of the brain can be accessed without creating an incision. An endoscope is utilized in the process which is used to examine tumors all across the brain.
  4. Minimally Invasive neuroendoscopy: This process is similar to the minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery. This method also involves the use of an endoscope for removal of brain tumors. Small, dime sized holes may be made in the skull to access some brain parts.

Risks:
Brain surgeries may be associated with several risks. They may be:

  1. Allergic reactions to anesthesia
  2. Bleeding
  3. Blood clot formations
  4. Swelling of the brain
  5. A state of coma
  6. Impairment in speech, coordination and vision.
  7. Problems in memory
  8. Strokes and seizures
  9. Infections in the brain

A brain surgery is a serious and very complex surgery. There are different kinds of brain surgeries, which are conducted depending on the condition and severity of the disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurosurgeon.

Follow sleep hygiene. Get a EEG done. Exercise daily and you should feel tired at the time of going to sleep. That will improve your sleep qualities and talking will reduce.

Migraine - Identifying the Early Signs!

Migraine - Identifying the Early Signs!

Headaches and migraines can vary drastically depending on their duration, specific symptoms and the person they are affecting. The more you know about your specific type of headache or migraine, the better prepared you will be to treat them—and possibly even prevent them. The two types of migraine are- 

  1. Migraine without aura: The majority of migraine sufferers have Migraine without Aura. 
  2. Migraine with aura: Migraine with Aura refers to a range of neurological disturbances that occur before the headache begins, usually lasting about 20-60 minutes.

Symptoms of migraine vary and also depend on the type of migraine. A migraine has four stages: prodrome, aura, headache and postdrome. But it is not necessary that all the migraine sufferers experience all the four stages.

Prodrome: The signs of this begin to appear a day or two days before the headache starts. The signs include depression, constipation, food cravings, irritability, uncontrollable yawning, neck stiffness and hyperactivity.
Migraine Aura: Auras are a range of symptoms of the central nervous system. These might occur much before or during the migraine, but most people get a migraine without an aura. Auras usually begin gradually and increase in intensity. They last for an hour or even longer and are 

  • Visual: Seeing bright spots, various shapes, experiencing vision loss, and flashes of light
  • Sensory: Present in the form of touch sensations like feeling of pins and needles in the arms and legs
  • Motor: Usually related with the movement problems like the limb weakness
  • Verbal: It is related with the speech problems

Headache: In case of a migraine attack one might experience:

  • Pain on both sides or one side of the head
  • Pain is throbbing in nature
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Sensitivity to smells, sound and light
  • Vision is blurred
  • Fainting and lightheadedness

Postdrome: This is the final phase of the migraine. During this phase one might feel fatigued, though some people feel euphoric.

Red flags that the patient may be having underlying serious disorder not migraine

  1. Onset of headaches >50 years 
  2. Thunderclap headache - subarachnoid haemorrhage 
  3. Neurological symptoms or signs 
  4. Meningism 
  5. Immunosuppression or malignancy 
  6. Red eye and haloes around lights - acute angle closure glaucoma 
  7. Worsening symptoms 
  8. Symptoms of temporal arteritis

These patients require CT scan / MRI or CSF examination. Most Migraine patients do not need these tests. 

Diagnosis of Migraine: Usually migraines go undiagnosed and thus are untreated. In case you experience the symptoms regularly then talk to the doctor, who evaluates the symptoms and can start a treatment. You can also be referred to a neurologist who is trained to treat the migraines and other conditions. During the appointment the neurologist usually asks about the family history of headaches and migraines along with your symptoms and medical history.

The doctor might advise for some tests like:

  1. Blood Tests: These reveal problems with the blood vessel like an infection in the spinal cord and brain.
  2. CT scan: Used to diagnose the infections, tumors, brain damage, and bleeding that cause the migraines.
  3. MRI: This helps to diagnose the tumors bleeding infections, neurological conditions, and strokes.
  4. Lumbar Puncture: For analyzing infections and neurological damages. In lumbar puncture a thin needle is inserted between the two vertebrae to remove a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid for analysis.

Treatments

Migraine treatments can help stop symptoms and prevent future attacks.

Many medications have been designed to treat migraines. Some drugs often used to treat other conditions also may help relieve or prevent migraines. Medications used to combat migraines fall into two broad categories:

  • Pain-relieving medications. Also known as acute or abortive treatment, these types of drugs are taken during migraine attacks and are designed to stop symptoms.
  • Preventive medications. These types of drugs are taken regularly, often on a daily basis, to reduce the severity or frequency of migraines.

Your treatment strategy depends on the frequency and severity of your headaches, the degree of disability your headaches cause, and your other medical conditions.

Some medications aren't recommended if you're pregnant or breast-feeding. Some medications aren't given to children. Consult a doctor find the right medication for you.

Autism Spectrum - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Autism Spectrum - How Homeopathy Can Help?

One of the best pleasures of life is to watch a child grow up and begin to learn and explore new things in the surroundings. However, children affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or autism may not be able to do this at the same pace as other kids. They are a little slow to respond and may not socialise very easily.

ASD is a collective term used for a range of symptoms, including poor verbal and nonverbal communication, poor social skills, repetitive behaviour, and impaired learning abilities. The onset and severity of symptoms also vary across children. While some show symptoms in preschool, others would be completely normal and start showing symptoms after a couple of years of schooling. The following are some symptoms that indicate the child could have autism.

  1. Lack of babbling by 9 months of age
  2. No response when called by their name even after 12 months of age
  3. Not uttering single words by the age of 16 months, two words by 24 months
  4. Lack of social skills including resistance to cuddling, not mingling with other kids
  5. Self-injurious behaviour like banging head on the wall, hurting a toy, etc.

Homeopathy offers safe, effective remedy for children with autism. Treatment regime is highly customised based on underlying and accompanying symptoms of each patient. The following are commonly used ingredients; however, self-medication is best avoided.

  1. Agaricus: The child talks and sings but does not respond. There is indifference, fearlessness, shouting, constant jerking of the head, difficulty reading, possible double vision and feels awkward physically and mentally.
  2. Carcinosin: The child is obstinate and has compulsive obsessive tendencies. It is hyperactive, does not sleep, has addictive tendencies, and likes to drink milk which worsens the symptoms.
  3. Androctonus: The child is destructive, suspicious, mischievous, but very quick to respond. The child behaves very well at times and can be very naughty at other times.
  4. Helleborus: The child is generally weak, slow to respond, appears thoughtless, often stares into air, and looks depressed with involuntary sighing and habit of lip biting. Sight, hearing, and taste could be affected.
  5. Cuprum Metallicum: The child is extremely tense, irritable, rigid, malicious, and very difficult to handle. Does not like to be touched or spoken to or played with. Can be aggressive with the parents, driving them to despair.

May have tics infestation on the scalp.
Another recent approach is the CEASE (Complete Elimination Autism Spectrum Expression) Therapy. This combines homoeopathy with orthomolecular medicines that provide the required nutrition for brain development (vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, etc.) This helps in overall brain development and restoring function in affected children. As noted, the right potency of these products will determine the response to treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Epilepsy Symptoms, Treatment And Cause - मिरगी के लक्षण, इलाज और कारण

Epilepsy Symptoms, Treatment And Cause - मिरगी के लक्षण, इलाज और कारण

मिर्गी उन बिमारियों में से है जिनका पहचान काफी पहले ही हो चुकी थी. आज हम मिर्गी के लक्षण, कारण और उपचार को लेकर बात करेंगे. विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार मिर्गी की बीमारी तंत्रिका तंत्र में विकार आने के कारण होती है. तंत्रिका तंत्र का सीधा सम्बन्ध मस्तिष्क से है. जब मस्तिष्क में विकार आता है तो इसकी वजह से तंत्रिका तंत्र प्रभावित होता है. फिर मिर्गी का अटैक आता है और पीड़ित का शरीर अकड़ जाता है.
इस बीमारी को लेकर पहले समाज में कई तरह की भ्रांतियां प्रचलित थीं. हलांकि अब भी कई लोग इसे भुत-प्रेत से जोड़कर देखते हैं. कई बार तो मिर्गी के मरीज को पागल की तरह भी ट्रीट किया जाता है. यहाँ ये बताना आवश्यक है कि मिर्गी भी बस एक बीमारी के सिवा कुछ नहीं है. इस लिए इसके मरीजों को तुरंत किसी चिकित्सक के पास ले जाना चाहिए. हम मिर्गी के के विभिन्न पहलुओं पर प्रकाश डाल रहे हैं.

मिर्गी होने का क्या कारण है?
शरीर के सभी अंगों की संवेदनशीलता मस्तिष्क द्वारा तंत्रिका तंत्र को दिए गए निर्देश के अनुसार ही काम करती है. मस्तिष्क में स्थित न्यूरॉन्स ही तंत्रिका तंत्र को सिग्नल देते हैं. लेकिन जब इस प्रक्रिया में बाधा पहुंचती है यानी कि न्यूरॉन्स तंत्रिका तंत्र को सही निर्देश नहीं दे पाते हैं तब मरीज को मिर्गी का दौरा पड़ता है. इसमें शरीर का अंग विशेष कुछ देर के लिए निष्क्रिय हो जाता है. इसके कुछ संभावित कारण निम्लिखित हैं-

1. न्यूरोलॉजिकल प्रॉब्लम्स जैसे कि अल्जाईमर.
2. अनुवांशिक कारण यानि आपके खानदान में किसी को रहा हो या हो.
3. ब्रेन ट्यूमर
4. जन्म से ही मस्तिष्क में ऑक्सीजन का आवागमन पूर्ण रूप से बंद होने पर.
5. मस्तिष्क ज्वर और इन्सेफेलाइटिस के के संक्रमण से.
6. ब्रेन स्ट्रोक के कारण ब्लड वेसल्स को नुकसान पहुँचने से.
7. कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड की विषाक्तता से.
8. अत्यधिक मात्रा में ड्रग लेना.

क्या हैं मिर्गी के लक्षण?
जाहिर है हर बिमारी के कुछ न कुछ लक्षण होते हैं जिसके आधार पर हम इसकी पहचान करते हैं. ठीक उसी तरह मिर्गी के भी कुछ प्रारंभिक लक्षण हैं. इन लक्षणों के नजर आते ही आपको डॉक्टर के पास जाना चाहिए. हलांकि जब मिर्गी के दौरे पड़ते हैं तो एकदम स्पष्ट हो जाता है.
1. मरीज का पूर्ण रूप से बेहोश हो जाना या आंशिक रूप से मूर्छित हो जाना.
2. अपना जीभ खुद से काटना या असंयमित हो जाना.
3. सर और आँख की पुतलियों का लगातार घूमना.
4. हाथ पैर और चेहरे की मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव उत्पन्न होना.
5. मूर्छा से उठने के बाद मरीज का उलझन में होना 
6. पेट में गड़बड़ी होना.
7. चिकित्सकीय पहचान: एक्सपर्ट्स का कहना है कि इन सब लक्षणों के बावजूद मरीज का मेडिकल करने के बाद ही उसके रोग का निर्धारण किया जाता है. डॉक्टर मरीज़ के पल्स रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को चेक करते हैं. फिर इसके बाद न्यूरोलॉजिकल साइन का भी परिक्षण करते हैं. इसके साथ ही इस रोग का पता ई.ई.जी, सी.टी.स्कैन या एम.आर.आई और पेट के द्वारा लगाते हैं.

क्या है इसका उपचार और कैसे करें रोकथाम?
उपचार

मिर्गी एक बेहद संवेदनशील बिमारी है. इसके उपचार के लिए सबसे महत्वपूर्ण उपाय बताया जाता है कि जब भी मिर्गी का दौरा आए उस समय सीजर को नियंत्रित करना. इसे नियंत्रित करने के लिए एन्टी एपिलेप्टिक ड्रग थेरपी और कुछ सर्जरी होती है. हलांकि डॉक्टर्स का ये भी कहना है कि जिन लोगों पर दवाई का असर नहीं होता है उन्हें सर्जरी करने की सलाह दी जाती है. मिर्गी के मरीजों को ज्यादा वसा वाले खाने से दूर ही रहना चाहिए. खाने में ज्यादा से ज्यादा कार्बोहाइड्रेट वाले खाद्य पदार्थों का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए. इससे सीजर की आवृत्ति में कमी आती है.

रोकथाम के उपाय
आपको जानकर हैरानी हो सकती है कि अभी भी मिर्गी के कारणों का ठीक से पता नहीं लगाया जा सका है. हलांकि शिशुओं के जन्म के दौरान जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग की सहायता से माँ को बच्चे में इसके होने का पता लगाया जा सकता है. इससे बचने के लिए आप इस बात का ध्यान रखें की आपके सर में चोट न लगे. इसके अलावा आप ये उपाय कर सकते हैं-

1. जितना हो सके तनाव से दूर रहें.
2. खाने में संतुलित आहार लें.
3. डॉक्टर द्वारा दी गई दवा का सही तरीके से सेवन करते रहें.
4. नियमित रूप से चिकित्सक से सलाह लेते रहें.
5. पर्याप्त नींद लेना भी अत्यंत जरुरी है.

Respected sir, my father is 59 years old suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia. Progressive in nature. 1. Slurring of speech since 2007 2. Gait abnormality since 2009 3. Writing abnormality since 2009 he is not having any comorbidities neither any family history. Please help me if you have any suggestion for him.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Progressive sca at 59 years age is unusual and should trigger a search for various conditions: cerebrovascular disease, demyelinating disease, infectious diseases, vitamin deficiency, toxic exposure, sarcoidosis, autoimmune diseases (eg, sle, sjogren syndrome), and alcohol-induced cerebellar degeneration. Other diseases that can mimic this condition include late-onset spinocerebellar ataxia with or without a family history, olivopontocerebellar degeneration, and other degenerative diseases of the brain. The most problematic is paraneoplastic cerebellar degernation, even though it is slightly more common among women; in men, it may signal an occult small cell ca of the lung, or hodkgin lymphoma. Apart from the tests for the other conditions mentioned, a test for anti-yo antibody and a search for occult malignancy should be done. Treatment is by physiotherapy/gait therapy, and treatment for the underlying condition if possible.

Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi lybrate-user. A headache may appear as a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache. Headaches can develop gradually or suddenly, and may last from less than an hour to several days. If You give through a description of the condition, the type of pain and the timing and pattern of attacks and food habits. It can be helpful for us to give appropriate medication. Here by I am advicing few General medication which helps to relieve headache. Medication:-According to ayurveda based on individuals prakruti i, e body constitution, age, diet and life styles. In classics different modalities of treatment has been mentioned like shodhana (Panchakarma-detoxification procedure of the body), Shamana (internal medicine). Ayurvedic therapies (panchakarma) for migraine: 1.Shirolepa – Application of herbal pastes which pacify Pitta Dosha like Sandalwood, camphor, Jatamansi. 2.Shiro Dhara – pouring of thin stream of liquid over scalp. 3.Shiro basti-Retaining the medicated oils over the leather cap fitted over the scalp. Any vata-pitta pacifying oils are beneficial for this purpose. 4.Sneha nasya – Instillation of medicated oils can be carried to the nostrils. Shamana (Internal medication):- 1.Pathyadi khada-10 ml with warm water twice a day after food. 2.Tab Niargim-1 tab twice a day after food. 3.Tab Kamaduga with mouktik-1 tab twice a day before food. Tips:- 1.Do not take pain mitigating medicines frequently. Over intake of pain medicines may cause rebound headache and may eventually increase the frequency of migraines. 2.Make sure to sleep and eat at regular intervals. 3.Make sure to sleep at least 7 hours at night. 4.Avoid fasting. It will increase both Pitta and Vata dosha, worsening migraines. Do not skip meals. 5.Quit smoking and get rid of alcoholic addiction 6.Do not drink strong coffee / tea. Make it light. 7.Do not take too hot water bath or too cold water bath. 8.Avoid spicy n fermented food.
