Avoid spicy food items and not to eat junk food and we also need to avoid peanuts and potatoes in our daily diet and eat only curd rice or khichdi for few days and drink only boiled water and for headache take tablet paracetamol 650 mg eight hourly and few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

I have been feeling sleepy for most part of the day. I exercise regularly and have a proper diet yet I tend to sleep around 9-12 hrs on average. This is creating lot of problems with my routine. This problem increases with exams. Is it somehow related to anxiety issues? And can I take medication like modafinil or modawake for this?

No in anxiety you tend not to get sleep and in depression you may sleep more. Make a sleep wake schedule and stick to it. Exercise daily for 1 hour.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6 am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues.

Hi, I'm a 14 years old girl. I am a boyish type of girl, I don't really go out of the house don't have a boyfriend since birth, I'm very focused on my study, and I'm an achiever in our school as well, And when I go out my parents are always w/ me, I masturbate w/ my pants and panties on but just rubbing it not fingering. So I have this very strange feeling, & I don't even want to mention it cause it's very impossible. Because after I go biking on thursday my nipples hurt when they're slightly touched, is it because I only wear sando bras instead of bras? And also my pimples are coming out. I didn't get my period yet but there's also a problem in my period, Cause when I got it It's like a flood flowing and lasts until 1-2 months and skips form 3-4 months that's also the reason why we go to a ob gyn for a check up last summer, And then the ob gyn gave me some trust pills which has numbers of days in it and has yellow and brown color. But still my period skips 1 month now only and when I got it it only lasts 5 days. Then in the evening I only ate a little amount for dinner and just ate breakfast w/ one scoop of rice only in the 10/11am, I didn't ate lunch, But I take snacks SOMETIMES in the afternoon (That's the way I eat and been months since I do this) And I also often drink soft drinks. I drink them like water when I get thirsty. So later on in that evening. I slept at 11pm and just suddenly woke up at 1am w/ sort of nausea, A little Abdominal pain, I got cold, I urinate frequently but a just a little amount of urine, I farted a lot, My tummy is bloating, I cannot finish a yawn, I have a little blood in my rectal, I have hard and liquid stools, And I cannot go back to sleep so I stay awake until 6am. Then when I take my breakfast I like to vomit it but I forced myself to eat it but then I didn't vomit it but I had hard time chewing it. Pls help me. I'm very worried and confused now!

There is nothing abnormal at this age. For your periods, you are already under treatment of obs and gyn. Rectal bleed may be due to 1st part of constipated hard stool that proceed loose stool. Your food habit is under quantity and under nourishing causing constipation. Change your food habit and concentrate on your studies.

Do you often go through the day feeling sleepy, sluggish, and lethargic, even after a full night's rest? While it's common to occasionally feel dead tired during the day, persistent symptoms of daytime drowsiness could be linked to your sleep and health habits. There are a couple of possible reasons why you may be experiencing daytime drowsiness, and we want to help you better understand what you can do to start feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed everyday. Getting the Right Amount of Nightly Sleep So you regularly get 8 hours of sleep every night but you still feel tired during the day. What's the deal? For starters, the 8 hour sleep guideline is just that—a guideline. Yes, the 8 hours of sleep standard has been routinely researched to be the number of hours of sleep that most people need. However, it doesn't always work for everybody, and you may need to adjust it a little to get it right for you. Fine-tune your body's clock body clock for sleepToo much sleep can be just as bad as too little sleep. It's important to dial in your personal body clock so that you feel refreshed and ready to tackle the day, everyday. To do this, figure out what time you need to get up in the morning. Count back 7.5 hours as a good time to start getting to bed. 7.5 hours is a good benchmark because the average person goes through five 90 minute sleep cycles alternating between sleep (non-REM) and deep sleep (REM). It's best to wake in-between deep sleep cycles rather than in the middle of one. Waking in the middle of REM can lead you to feeling groggy during the day. If you wake during non-REM you're more likely to feel alert and attentive as the day progresses. Try this 7.5 hours sleep duration for 3 days. If you find yourself waking about 10 minutes before your alarm goes off, you've found your perfect bedtime. If however you're still relying on your alarm clock to wake you up, try moving your bedtime back 15 minutes every 3 days until you find yourself waking just a few minutes before your alarm goes off. Once you find your body's perfect internal sleep-clock, stay consistent with it. The less you vary from the norm, the more alert you will be during the day and the better you will function. Practice better sleep habits If you find yourself having difficulty getting to bed on time every night, there are a few things you can do to help you get to bed quicker: electronics and sleep Ditch your electronics. This may be the simplest yet hardest habit to break. The artificial light emitting from your cellphone, tablet, laptop, television set, e-reader, portable game console, etc, tricks your brain into believing it needs to stay awake because it associates light with daytime. This deception can disrupt your circadian rhythm, which in turn leads to poorer sleep at night and feeling rundown during the day. Keep your room dark and quiet. Ditching those electronics may not be enough to create the ideal sleeping quarters. If possible, turn off all lights. If this is not possible, leave one dim light on or use a nightlight. Try using "white noise. Listening to music to help you get to bed may work for you, but it's also likely to disrupt your sleep, causing more problems than it solves. If you must listen to music, try setting it on a timer that will shut it off shortly after you fall asleep. A better option is to listen to white noise while you sleep. White noise from a fan or a sound-machine creates a consistent rhythmic sound that can be both relaxing and help drown out other sudden noises that may cause you to wake at night. Soda_bottlesAvoid caffeine before bed. This one should be a no-brainer, but many people have a hard time resisting caffeinated beverages before bedtime. Caffeine is a stimulant and will increase alertness at that crucial time when your body wants to wind down. If you are a habitual caffeine user, try avoiding using caffeine three hours before bedtime to help get you to sleep on time. A Healthier Lifestyle Leads to Healthier Sleep Diet and exercise can go a long way towards getting better rest at night and being more alert during the day. Balancing healthy eating choices with routine exercise can dramatically affect the way you perform throughout the day. Foods to Avoid to Improve Sleep Foods high in sugar and caffeine can have a temporary energy-boosting effect on the mind and body's alertness, but is often followed by a crashing feeling that can last much longer than the short energy-surge you were after. Fatty foods and processed carbs have also been associated with daytime sleepiness. These foods may fill you up but they're not loaded with the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to produce ample amounts of energy. Spicy foods close to bedtime. Spicy foods are notorious for causing heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux. Heartburn can be made worse while lying down as it allows the acids to creep up into the esophagus and burn the sensitive lining. Eat more healthy foods. Eating more foods that naturally boost your daily energy levels can go a long way in helping you feel more alert everyday. Eat more natural, unprocessed carbs. Eat foods that are rich in antioxidants, amino acids, proteins and high in vitamins. A short list of high energy foods would be: leafy greens, whole grains, tree nuts, lean meats, eggs, fruits (especially apples, bananas, and blueberries), and bell peppers just to name a few. Exercise more. Routine exercise can go a long way in curing your daytime fatigue. Exercise breeds energy. It is recommended that you exercise at least 40 minutes a day, 4 days a week. Aside from the energy boost you'll experience, exercise also releases endorphins which will leave you simply "feeling good" about yourself. Poor sleep could be a sign of a sleep disorder If you practice the above guidelines of a healthier lifestyle and better sleeping habits but still find yourself suffering from daytime drowsiness, it may be a sign of a more severe medical condition such as: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), anemia, thyroid problems, narcolepsy, depression, restless leg syndrome, undiagnosed heart disease, or deficiencies in key nutrients. If you think that you may be suffering from one of these medical conditions you should contact your physician or local sleep clinic immediately.

Don't worry . Sleeplessness has many causes . Depression is just one of them . If you have a stressful lifestyle , stress is the major cause . Relax and try having warm milk before sleeping and keep your cell phone away from you during sleep hours

I am 52 year old I have insomia problem since last 20 year. I have taken alprazolam. 5 for 18 year now days I m taking ezitalo plus but it showing some side effect. Please tell me what I should take ?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Insomnia is a psychological issue; treating insomnia using allopathic medications is inadequate. Picture that you are on the road driving a car, and your petrol tank is leaking; how far is repeated refilling of your petrol tank going to take you, till you fix the leak? taking a tablet for insomnia is like filling petrol while the leak is still there; here, the leak' is some psychological issue. Since it has been going on for over 20 years now, it is chronic and resistant; you must go to a psychotherapist or a psychoanalyst who can help you get to the root of the problem.

MBBS
General Physician,
Dear once developed any where usually needs only surgical removal, only small cysts can be observed to get dissolved by compression of hot /cold with proper balanced diet. Cysts are the accumulated toxic products in body out of wrong food habits or constipation etc for short cut needle aspirations can be tried but will recur. Full encapsulated removal is advised by skilled doctor. Histopathological assessment will give you a more better tt idea. No medication will help, I best wishes.

One of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that plans made during the day time or earlier, do not succeed and mind finds ways or speculates or wanders to find ways to make the the plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in agitated state due to finding no way to solve mundane plans and thus leads to frustration which avoids mind to go into sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. One has to break one's self-centeredness to avoid the thoughts and frustrations entering into mind at time of sleep leading to improper sleep. The solution is to not intentionally think further about plans, but with faith surrender to the supreme and instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Drinking cow's milk in night before sleep also should help. Hope this helps,

Here was the lack of sleep due to any stress,& is continuous, or becoz of certain reason, you could nt get time to get sleep? the t/t depends on that. If its a complaint of sleeplessness since long, then, the drug suggestable varies from, if this is emporarily, due to work etc. Headache, etc all are due to the sleeplessness. Try to take belladonna[in homeo] for headache in 200 potency, 3 times /day, each time 6-8 pills, chewable. If you are still suffering, then you can ask further, with details. Walking in night& morning, or doing any regular exercises, practicing breathing exercises, paranayama, mediatation will help to releive the mind/stress, & will help to get good sleep. Try to maintain proper sleeping hrs, minimum 7-9 hrs/day. Take 1 glass of warm milk in night before going to bed. Do not use any gadget, system before going to bed, that too in dim light or dark room if its sleeplessness, then the t/t varies. So, you can revert me back, with feed back.

In people of young age this happens when they have a constant concern in the back of mind. Try to identify your problem which is bothering you consciously and subconsciously, or talk to your parents or anyone close to you. The best way to solve a problem is don't avoid it, accept it and try to solve it. In case you still fail to manage then go to a qualified physician. Don't take medicines as advised by people.
