hello lybrate user, If shaking occurs during an action like reaching for something, writing, steadying a cup of coffee..; that’s called an active tremor. Active tremors do not usually point to a serious neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease. take homeopathic treatment for your complaint. It is safe, natural and highly effective in neuromuscular complaint. few more details about complaint are needed to select right remedy. you may message back for further details and proper homeopathic treatment.

Here are tips to prevent Acidity/heartburn/GERD. -Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat  -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension.  -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Try meditation, stretching or deep breathing instead -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up  -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. HOME REMEDIES: -Chewing gum after meals. stimulates saliva production, which neutralize stomach acid .Herbal Tea improves digestion and soothe gas and nausea. Take low fat milk. -Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe..  -TREATMENT:  -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief. Other antacids, such as Gaviscon, create a protective foam barrier that coats the stomach  -Proton Pump Inhibitors;for severe cases, these reduce acid in the stomach.ie:Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals.

Will our penis size increase after 20 by doing regular exercise and by having good diet.

Will our penis size increase after 20 by doing regular exercise and by having good diet.
Thank you for your question sorry but my answer is no- there is no relationship of penis size with physical exercise - that may help with better erections not size A good enough size for the penis is one that is atleast 2.5 – 3 inches when erect. You can measure your penis with a measuring tape when flaccid and when erect. Please do not judge the length by looking in a mirror or looking down at it. Use the tape to measure the actual length from tip to base. A woman’s vaginal entrance is the most sensitive part that the penis touches. Beyond the two inches at the entrance there is not much sensation so an extra long penis does not necessarily give more pleasure. Please read ‘New Male Sexuality’ by Bernie Zilbergeld for further information and guidance on how to masturbate correctly to improve your erection and manage ejaculation time. It will also help you to understand what to do when you are having sex so that your partner is satisfied. Usually your partner not being satisfied is due to your poor technique rather than small penis size. Technique can be learnt and the skill perfected – size cannot be increased without surgery which has side effects. When you focus on your partners needs both sexually and emotionally you will respond to what makes her satisfied more easily – and this is not necessarily the duration of intercourse or the length of your penis. Your penis size and length is determined by your genetics. I.e it is inherited from your parents most predominantly your father. It cannot be increased or decreased with medication or masturbation. The only other option is surgery which will need to be done by a urologist / andrologist trained in such procedures. This is usually done as a last resort. Please consult a urologist if you feel you are a suitable candidate for surgery and you have tried all other measures suggested and have failed Best wishes.

My Mom got sugar and thyroid for last two months. Please suggest me some diet chart.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet has to be very specific for each patient. To suggest that one needs to know height, weight, fasting & pp blood glucose levels, present treatment with dosage, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. With out these details diet can not be prescribed or suggested. However, she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). She should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Because of hypothyroidism she should avoid taking soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, hello, some bodies have a little slow healing speed. You are taking right drugs. You should get surgical /aseptic dressings done in good clinics/ hospitals with sterile dressing material. Have patience. You will settle soon. Take care.

With pregnant women till which month man can have sex from 1-9, and with pregnant women sex will be save for baby.
Sex should be avoided in the first 3 months and last 3 months. It is safe to have gentle sex in the middle 3 months and safe for the baby. Carefull penetration is important.

I am 20 Male. I have been having a weird feeling in my testicles from last few days. It is sometimes leading to pain. I think it's mostly a muscle or vein related as I get a light sensation when I pull/push my muscle there. I went to an urologist. He told me these are common for my age and examined my testicles. He applied pressure there and asked me if I am having a burning sensation which I had a very slight one. He told me it looks fine and mostly it will go away and gave me a tablet called signoflam and told me to use when ever I get pain. Should I go for further diagnosis or use the tablet? I have been under stress too for last few weeks. Could that have caused the problem?

I am a Gastroenterologist and would be answering your query. As per you query answers are- Firstly for Irritable bowel syndrome. Irritable bowel syndrome is a common intestinal disorder. There is some problem in the functional ability of the gut that leads to the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. The structure of the intestines is normal, only functional abnormality occurs in this condition. So frankly speaking (IBS) represents a functional disorder of gastrointestinal tract without the presence of an anatomic defect. Recent studies by French scientists have indicated that the most important mechanisms include visceral sensitivity, abnormal gut motility and autonomous nervous system dysfunction. The interactions between these three mechanisms make bowel's function susceptible to many exogenous and endogenous factors like gastrointestinal flora, feeding and psychosocial factors. Further data indicate that according to the above mechanisms, the influence of genetic factors and polymorphisms of human DNA in the development of IBS is equally important. So in lay mans language till date we don't know the exact cause of this problem. So the million dollar question is how to repair a system when you don't know which part of it is faulty (Some says it can be brain other syas it can be hormone anxiety age etc etc). Some patients have attacks of diarrhea and bloating and some may have constipation. Other symptoms that may be present in irritable bowel syndrome include nausea, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, muscular pains, heartburn, and weakness. Some patients have occasional symptoms whereas others may have symptoms for a long period of time. So as seen above every patient is different. Intensity of symptoms in every patient is different as so is the response to medicines and life style change. Every drug is not effective in every patient so we have to try different therapies till we find the drug which suits best our patient. Dicyclomine 20 mg four times a day is to heavy a dose for 80 year old women. Dicyclomine ios an anticholinergic drug. An anticholinergic agent is a substance that blocks the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and the peripheral nervous system. Anticholinergics inhibit parasympathetic nerve impulses by selectively blocking the binding of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to its receptor in nerve cells (In simple words it messes up with both your peripheral and central nervous system) Mebeverine is an antispasmodic medicine and is very useful in IBS and is well tolerated by patient with minimal side effects. Mebeverine works on certain muscles in the wall of your intestines, causing them to relax. Clidinium bromide is an anticholinergic (specifically a muscarinic antagonist) drug. It may help symptoms of frequent stools. Chlordiazepoxide works by increasing the action of GABA, a chemical messenger which suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain. Can be used in combination with above mentioned medicines. Another OTC medication is Bismuth sub-salicylate. It belongs to a class of medications called antacids and adsorbents marketed by name of Pepto Bismol. Doses up to 1gram can be taken daily to provide symptomatic relief. Loperamide can be used but should be avoided. Diphenoxylate and Atropine combination (Lomotil)-Atropine/diphenoxylate is an antidiarrheal and anticholinergic combination. For bloating and gas take Tab Nexium 40 mg twice daily. Take a probiotic daily with food as proper digestion of food will prevent excess gas formation. Food pattern recommended is- Eat simple and natural home cooked food. If possible try detox diet (Raw vegans) for atleast 3 month. Take normal food in lunch while in supper take uncooked raw natural form of food. This can play wonders. Avoid taking excessive fibres. A total fiber intake of about 20-30 grram per day would be good for you. Any thing in excess is good for nothing. No pizza, Burger,Red meat, and dairies for few weeks. No alcohol or smoking. Take natural food rich in probiotics like Yoghurt, Kimchi,etc. This doesnot mean that you have to take them as much as you can. Follow your body increase their uptake gradually. Drink lots of juices and fresh water daily. Avoid over spicy and heavy food. If possible go for a detox diet but again don't force your body rather let your body adopt gradually to things. Anal fissure and fistula- An anal fissure is a small tear or crack in the lining of the anus so in lay mans language its an internal wound. Certain treatments can promote healing and help relieve discomfort, including stool softeners (you already have soft stools) and topical pain relievers. If an anal fissure doesn’t improve with these treatments, surgery may be required. Salts adviced for trial before going for surgery are- A broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefuroxime to prevent bacterial infection of site. Combination of trypsinogen with serratiopeptidase (Wound healer). Dicofenac as an anti inflammatory. Ointment containing broad spectrum antibiotic to be applied locally over fissures. Vitamin C (wound healer). Folic acid and zinc supplement. However initially an anoscopy should be done by a Rectal surgeon to see the extent of fissure. Best surgical option is Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT) is a novel minimally invasive and sphincter-saving technique for treating complex fistulas. As per the standard data of NCBI (National centre of biotechnological information) a facility funded by American govt data's are-"From May 2006 to May 2011, 136 patients were operated using VAAFT. Ninety-eight patients were followed up for a minimum of 6 months. 1) No major complications occurred. In most cases, both short-term and long-term postoperative pain was acceptable. 2) Primary healing was achieved in 72 patients (73.5%) within 2–3 months of the operation. 3) Sixty-two patients were followed up for more than 1 year. The percentage of the patients healed after 1 year was 87.1%. Hermorrhoids- 1) Sitz bath-Sit in about 3 inches of warm water for 15 minutes or so, several times a day. This helps reduce swelling in the area and relaxes your clenching sphincter muscle. 2) A 1% hydrocortisone cream on the skin outside the anus can relieve itching and pain. 3) With an electric probe, a laser beam, or an infrared light, a tiny burn will be made to remove tissue and painlessly seal the end of the hemorrhoid, causing it to close off and shrink. 4Rubber band ligation is a procedure in which the hemorrhoid is tied off at its base with rubber bands, cutting off the blood flow to the hemorrhoid. This treatment is only for internal hemorrhoids. Hope I answered your query in detail, However in case you have any other query feel free to question. I would be happy to answer you. Regards.

No need to take viagra. The function of the penis is like a dropper, to transfer sperms into vagina. Count on the fertile period n you can just introduce your semen into her vagina vt a sterile injection vtout syringe.

Dear Lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Phimosis could cause moderate to severe pain while having vaginal intercourse. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. In case if there is no result from the above massage, you can always go for a minor surgical procedure called circumcision. Take care.
