If you don't have any facial weakness/ drooping of difficulty in closing eyes then there is no need to suspect facial palsy and there is no need to do mri brain.

Epileptic fit/seizure is a kind of neurological illness. The cause of seizure is abnormal electrical discharges from a part of brain. The cause of discharge may be a tumor, old trauma, vascular injury or any other brain insult. Many of the time this abnormal electrical activity may be seen in eeg recordings. This is a potentially dangerous situation. You should immediately consult a physician or neurologist who may investigate your son with eeg, mri brain etc and prescribe anti-epileptic medicines for cure. He should avoid cycling, riding bike, swimming, working at height, working near machinery, working near fire or going near water bodies like pond, lake, well, river etc. He will be ok with medicines, but the medicines may be required to be continued for many years. I wish him a better health.

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Five Facts About Epilepsy!

DM - Neurology, MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

Five Facts About Epilepsy!

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.

Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.


There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc. 
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients.

My cousin is suffering with partial paralysis from last 4 yrs, is it possible of get cure.

Sleep Paralysis...
Waking Up And Being Unable To Move
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night terrified and been unable to move?
Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon that occurs when a person wakes up from a sleep being unable to move, speak, or react.
It usually occurs as a person is about to fall asleep or as they are about to wake up out of sleep, and is usually accompanied with breathing difficulties.
This may not sound like a big deal for those who haven?t experienced it, but it can be terrifying at times.
You are totally paralyzed and unable to wake yourself up.
When you are in a state of paralysis,it is the brains natural response to think that you are under attack, so your brain naturally enters into a state of ?flight? mode.
Sometimes, sleep paralysis is accompanied by hallucinations or the feeling that there is an intruder in the room.
Some people even claim to sense the presence of demonic entities that sit on their chest, or aliens that stand over top of them.
In fact, the Chinese used to call this experience ?Gui Ya? which means ?ghost pressure?, and they believed that a ghost would come sit on your chest as you sleep and paralyze you.
What is the scientific reason reason this is happening?
Well, there isn?t any confirmed theory out there yet.
The most plausible scientific explanation is that it is thought to occur when the mind wakes up out of REM sleep while the body is still in a state of atonia to prevent sleepers from acting out their dreams.
I would agree with this for the most part, but who have experienced sleep paralysis with eyes open as one was sitting up in bed after waking up from a sleep, so one know for a fact my brain was not in a REM state of sleep because one could already been awake for several minutes.
In this notification, we will look at what to do to stay calm during sleep paralysis, how to prevent it from happening, and how to use it to your own spiritual advantage.
What to do when you can?t move
I have had a great deal of experiences with sleep paralysis, and have now reached a point where it no longer bothers one anymore.
The first time it happened to someone, One can tried to fight it and forcefully wake myself up from it.
This only caused by ones fear and anxiety and was completely ineffective.
If you wake up and realize you are in a state of sleep paralysis, don?t resist it.
The minute you resist it, you will start freaking out.
Accept it, and treat it as an opportunity to practice patience and peace of mind.
Conscious breathing really helps keeping your mind from entering freak-out mode.
Breathe in slowly and consciously, and exhale slowly and consciously.
Don?t panic.
Make it your mission when you are in sleep paralysis to be as calm as you can, and treat it as a chance to be fully present within your body.
Enter a meditative state of mind, and it will shortly pass with time.

There have been times where one have heard voices in ear while being paralyzed, but One remained calm by meditating and practicing conscious breathing.
It?s kind of like taking psychedelic drugs.
You can give yourself a bad experience by what you choose to think about and where you allow your mind to wander.
It can only have power over you if you give it your power.
Keep your attention inside your breath.
Pretend that you chose you would experience sleep paralysis at that time, and full embrace the experience with peace of mind.
Prayer has also brought many people peace during scary experiences of sleep paralysis, so if you feel comfortable calling out to God, that will only help bring you more comfort.
Preventing sleep paralysis
There are several factors that have been identified as increasing your chances of experiencing sleep paralysis.
Some of these include physical fatigue, under-sleeping, and erratic sleep schedule,stress, and an overuse of stimulants.
For me personally, oversleeping is what has caused most of my sleep paralysis experiences.
Most of the happen when one choose to go back to sleep even when one can rested, or when one take a nap throughout the day.
So a big way to prevent paralysis from happening is to have a proper sleep schedule.
Healthier sleep habits is the best thing you can do to avoid this experience.
Another big way to prevent sleep paralysis is to not sleep in supine position.
This is what supine position looks like:
When you sleep flat on your back in supine position, your soft palate is more likely to collapse and obstruct your breathing.
This causes you to wake up out of deep sleep while your body is still in a state of atonia from REM sleep.
Sleeping on your stomach (in prone position) or on your side is a good way to prevent this from happening.
Using sleep paralysis to your spiritual advantage
Sleep paralysis can be a burden for some, and an opportunity for others.
Not only can you treat it as a test to see how present and calm you can become,you can also use it a chance to try to initiate an out-of-body experience or a lucid dream.
Remember, some part of you remains in REM sleep while your waking mind is alert and attentive.  What if this REM atonia is a sort of toolbox that enables you to use your will, intention, and visualization to leave your body and enter into new worlds?

Affirm to yourself that you are going to have an out-of-body experience, and visualize yourself hovering over top of your own body.
Feel yourself starting to leave your body, and stay calm in your mind knowing that you will soon be outside of your body.
Many people claim that they try to induce sleep paralysis on purpose as one of the beginning stages of astral travel.
Don?t think if yourself as a victim to a scary experience.
Think of yourself as a pioneer on the edge of a world of lucid dreams and astral travel and create the experience you want for yourself.  Science tells us that we are literally at the brink of the world of sleep and dreams and the world of waking life.
Why not use it to your spiritual advantage and experiment a little bit?
The truth is, there is really nothing to be scared of.
Nobody has ever died or been injured from being in sleep paralysis,and it usually doesn?t last for more than 30 seconds.
Work with it, practice presence, clean up your sleep schedule, and if you feel like you?re up to it, use is as a launching pad for the exploration of other dimensions.

There are some of the very effective ayurveda compound like brahmi ghrita, kalyanak ghrita, tagat-jataamansi powders etc. Shirodhara procedure is also very effective. Apart from medicines, try meditation and pranayama never discontinue your physician's medicines before his advice take care.
