Hello lybrate user first of all I want to thank you that you analysed your body symptoms properly and decided to change the lifestyle. Truly speaking all the problems you are facing are because of unhealthy lifestyle. As well as you need detoxification of body that is panchakarm of body. I will explain this with one example if milk in the vessel is putrified simply throwing of milk and addiing new milk to that vessel will not solve issue. Because fresh milk may also gets putrified as it is in contact with dirty vessel. Likewise adoption of new lifestyle to toxified body will not solve the problem completely, you need to detox body with panchakarma.

Some of the medications that your daughter is taking tend to have side effects of sedation. So it is advisable to either titrate doses according to her needs or use alternative formulas to suit her needs. Consult a headache specialist or your treating physician for the same. If you so wish you may consult me online for any further queries or assistance in further treatmnet. Take care.

Following a scratch from a pet dog in late april, I decided to go for a rabies booster dose (2 doses) since I had already taken the full course last year. Around 12 days after the rabies booster (on tuesday 5th may), I had a full-on tonic clonic seizure in my sleep (around 12.30 am). The convulsion lasted for around 3-5 mins and I ended up biting my tongue badly. I have no personal or family history of seizures (febrile or otherwise) and this was the first time ever. 15-30 mins (not sure) before the seizure occurred I remember smelling burning garbage/burnt rubber. The next morning, I rushed to the local neurologist who asked me to get an mri/mrv + eeg + lots of bloodwork done. The mri/venal mri was normal, so were the eeg and the blood-tests. The neurologist diagnosed it as late onset seizure disorder and asked me to start with keppra 750 mg twice a day. The same evening I went to another neuro for the eeg and looking at my reports and history, he advised me not to start with the medicine and wait for another seizure before starting the aeds. Also neurologist no. 1 noted that the only real insult was the rabies booster shot and was concerned about the possibility of adem. But since the mri was ok he let it go. Now its been 7 days since the seizure. I have balance issues, limb weakness, difficulty remembering stuff and since yesterday I have extremely itchy palms (with small red spots) and itchy eyes. Its so bad, I was unable to sleep at all last night. Also both my hands and legs (esp my legs) keep falling asleep even when I am sitting normally and I keep getting that pins and needles sensation. My query is this: 1. Is there a possibility of developing adem or any other form of vaccine related encephalitis in the days or weeks ahead? 2. The itchy palms and eyes are a common vaccine adverse effect. Should I be concerned about that? 3. There are more than a few cases of otherwise healthy individuals having seizures/convulsions after taking nootropic vaccines like anti-rabies, japanese encephalitis, tbe etc. Http://www. Jmedicalcasereports. Com/content/7/1/66 pls do check out this link. If my seizure was vaccine meditated. Is there a way to treat the condition (with steroids etc) and/or prevent it from recurring? please do let me know.

How Homeopathy Helps In Handling Migraine!

How Homeopathy Helps In Handling Migraine!

Migraine is a type of headache which can occur in varied intensities; the pain resulting from a migraine is pulsating and throbbing. This sort of a headache is usually accompanied by extreme sensitivity to sounds and light as well as severe nausea. One feature that significantly differentiates between migraine and any other type of headache is that the headache resulting from migraines usually develops on any one side of the head.

Causes of Migraine

The exact cause behind migraine is yet to be fully understood. Migraines are thought to be a result of combination of genetic and environmental factors.In majority of cases, migraines tend to run in families . There are few well known trigger factors for migraine. These are – stress, exertion, gastric disturbances, eating heavy food stuff, taking alcoholic drinks, coffee intake, hormone changes in females.

Symptoms of Migraine

The most characteristic symptom of migraine is one sided headache mostly of violent, throbbing and pulsating in nature. The accompanying symptoms include nausea, vomiting, blurring of vision, flashes of light before eyes, double vision, light/sound sensitivity, confusion and weakness.

Homeopathy is not in the favour of using temporary treatments like popping a painkiller to alleviate the throbbing, pulsating and often intolerable pain caused from migraine. Homeopathy aims at going deep down into the root of the problem and entirely removes the tendency of any patient to be shot with migraine headaches every now and then. That is why homeopathic medications may take some time in showing results. They do not offer any temporary relief like most allopathic treatments do. On the other hand, homeopathic medicines offer a long term relief and can cure the migraine problem permanently.

Though homeopathic treatments vary from person to person, there are a few homeopathic medicines, which are very effective in relieving migraine headaches.

  1. Belladona for throbbing migraine attack: Belladonna is one of the most effective homeopathic medicines for treating migraine headache that is throbbing and violent in the temporal region of the head. If pain gets triggered without any prior prodromal symptoms and worsens by noise, touching and light, then Belladona is potent in removing the pain. This medicine is also good if you are unable to lie down because of pain and if your face turns red and hot when you are struck with excruciating pain. Have a few drops of Belladona and apply a mild pressure to feel better.
  2. Glonoine for migraine with congestive headache: When you are struck with congestive headache, a rush of blood reaches the head region causing redness in face and head area with intolerable throbbing pain. You may even feel shocks around the head which get aggravated when exposed to heat or sunlight. It becomes impossible to tolerate any kind of warmth, and you may feel a bit relieved when you uncover the head. If you are affected with congestive headache, then consuming Glonoine can be of immense help.
  3. Natrum Mur for migraine from grief and stress: This medicine is widely used for alleviating migraine caused from stress and grief. Natrum Mur is also effective in alleviating anaemic headaches, which mostly affect young women. It often leads to temporary sightlessness, and the pain feels as if thousands of small hammers are being throbbed within the brain. The pain tends to rise up after through the day, and the patient may feel better after sunset. If the pain gets triggered when the eye is strained, then Natrum Mur is the medication for you.

As you see, homeopathic treatments are great for reducing migraine attacks and your doctor will be able to guide you better on this matter. Homoeopathy treats each patient of Migraine by individualization and thus treats the root cause of migraine which could be Sun, stress, exertion etc.

Difficult to say regarding medication. But it seems he might have seizure episode during that 2 to 3 minute of memory loss. A EEG would be a better investigation. Consult a neurologist.

Then continue treatment as advised. If you still have fits, get treatment revised. If you are not having fits since 3 years after you started treatment consult your neurologist before stopping medicines

I have JUVENILE MYCLONIC EPILEPSY since 3 years. I came to know about it when I met a neurologist which had me an EEG test. There is no one in my family have this problem. Not even any neurological problem so far. I don't know where I got this disease. Doctor said the cause is unknown. Also I am physically weak. Is weakness might be a cause? I have also other problems such as memory loss, confusion and attention problem. Are these problems due to that disease? I just want to know what's cause of this.

Kindly do meditation and yoga. In early morning regularly. Due to lack of oxygen supply you feel headache and tiredness frequently. Dip your hands and legs inside lukeworm water for 15 min regularly for a week and do some free exercises inside lukeworm water. This will be helpful.
