I am suffering from epilepsy and get attacks minimum twice a month. I am not getting a good result from the medicine prescribed to me currently. What can I do to get cured?

Neurologist, Hyderabad
Most probably you are suffering from a refractory type of epilepsy or your compliance to medicine is not good (i mean missing the doses of epilepsy medicine in between) or the medicine you are taking is not appropriate for your epilepsy type or not in proper doses, consult a epileptologist or atleast a neurologist in person.

Tremor of hands. 1. It could be due to essential tremor. The cause of the tremor is unknown. In some cases it is hereditary and runs in families. There is no definite treatment unless it is severe 2 other causes of tremor could be stress, anxiety, panic, nervousness, inadequate sleep, physical exhaustion, strong emotion, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, smoking/tobacco/alcohol abuse/withdrawl, excess tea/coffee, drugs like steroid/amphetamine, neurological disorder, 3.

Good Morning ~ I am sorry to hear about your problem with epilepsy and I certainly believe that you can control your problem with the use of medications. It is not unusual for caregivers to feel some amount of burnout while taking care of themselves and their loved ones. Some amount of counseling or talk therapy and medications in combination may be needed and a thorough evaluation is called for. I will certainly help with your issues if you can book an appointment with the undersigned.

Hi, doctor I live in delhi & I am 34yr old female person. I have a tremor problem for last 4 months. What should I do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Neurologist,
Parkinson' s disease-kampavata (a neurological disorder) parkinson' s disease is a neurological disease, or brain disorder, that leads to progressive difficulty with balance and coordination. In people who have parkinson' s disease, nerve cells in a region of the brain known as the substantia nigra become damaged or die. These cells are important because they produce the chemical dopamine, which helps to coordinate body movement-basal ganglia. When dopamine-producing cells degenerate/die, the areas in the brain that control movement can no longer function properly, and symptoms of parkinson' s disease eventually develop. Parkinson? s disease prevalence:- parkinson' s disease can affect anyone, but it most often occurs in people who are over the age of 50. Only 15 percent of parkinson' s disease patients are diagnosed before they are 50 years old. The prevalence of parkinson' s disease is nearly the same in both men and women, and recovery rate is more in men. People with a family history of parkinson' s may have a higher risk of developing the disease, but parkinson' s disease is rarely attributed to genetics alone. Parkinson' s disease symptoms symptoms of parkinson' s disease usually develop after about 80 percent of the brain' s dopamine-producing cells are lost. The main symptoms of parkinson' s disease include? tremors(kampam)- tremulousness (uncontrolled shaking or trembling) of the hands, arms, legs, face, body is often one of the first indicators of parkinson' s disease? rigidity. Profound stiffness or an inability to easily move the arms, legs, and trunk, pain and stiffness on neck muscles is another hallmark of parkinson' s? bradykinesia:- describes the unnaturally slow movements that are characteristic of people with parkinson' s disease? poor balance- parkinson' s disease affects balance, leading to difficulty walking and impaired coordination. The symptoms of parkinson' s are generally mild at first, but become more severe over time, until they eventually interfere with your daily routine. This is usually the point when treatment is recommended. The outlook for people with parkinson' s disease parkinson' s disease is a chronic, progressive condition, which means it is a lifelong disease that worsens over time when it is not treated properly. Each individual' s situation is different, but in general, the first symptoms of parkinson' s disease usually don' t require treatment and may be restricted to one area or one side of the body. Movement of symptoms to the other side of the body? tremors that become more pronounced and interfere with activities? bradykinesia, or slow movement, that becomes disabling? difficulty with hand writing? impaired swallowing and chewing? speech that becomes monotone? poor balance and repeated falls? slow, shuffling gait (manner of walking)? stooped posture? facial expressions that become stiff and blank? chronic constipation? poor bladder control? sleep disturbances this progression is gradual in most people, but it may happen faster in some than others. Understandably, stress caused by the progression of the disease can lead to anxiety and depression. Ayurveda treatment: there is cure for parkinson' s disease with ayurveda treatment, with ayurveda medicines and treatments we can relieve symptoms, slow down the progression and then we can completely arrest further degeneration of the of the cells, thereby we can completely control and cure the disease. If you are diagnosed with parkinson' s disease, it is important to work closely with your medical team, so your medications can be regularly adjusted to help you remain as functional as possible for as long as possible. As far as parkinson' s disease is concerned this is a brain related issue, so will surely effect the mind; so I recommend 49% treatment to patients and 51% treatment to family members.

If your diagnosis is migraine for sure, treatmnet depends on various factors. That means treatmnet for the acute attacks of headaches and treatmnet for preventing future attacks. All forms of treatments depend on the type, severity, duration of headaches and most important being associated contributory factors for headache. Factors like impaired sleep patterns, stress, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, disturbed menses etc can be contributory factors for migraine.

How Physiotherapy Can Help with Neurological Disorders

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy), BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
How Physiotherapy Can Help with Neurological Disorders

Neurological disorders are problems with any one or a combination of the central nervous system or any of its peripheral systems such as cranial nerves, neuromuscular junctions, and the autonomic nervous systems among others.

Some extreme examples of neurological disorders are:

- Dementia
- Alzheimer's disease
- Parkinson's disease
- Epilepsy
- Disorders brought on by strokes
- Multiple sclerosis and others

What is physiotherapy and how can it help?

Physiotherapy is a form of treatment where practitioners use physical forms of treatment such as massages, exercises, heat treatment and other controlled forms of external stimuli to treat physical disorders.

This method of treatment can be very effective in correcting neurological disorders.

Some of the physiotherapy techniques, which can be implemented to help patients, are as follows:

  • Electrical Stimulation: This method is commonly used to treat muscular problems, especially incurred after an accident or any other form of injury. In this method, controlled electric stimulation is given to specific nerve areas over the skin to stimulate them.
  • Heat treatment: This method involves applying heat to parts of the body such as joints or muscles where there is nerve or muscular damage. This treatment is especially effective for muscle related problems.
  • Ice or cold treatment: Vertically opposite to the principle of heat treatment, ice or cold treatment is used to contract muscles within the body. This is especially effective where inflammation needs to be controlled.
  • Manual therapy: Possibly the most common form of physiotherapy, this method employs massages, pressure points, stretching and hands on strengthening exercises and helps regularize nerve impulses to areas where they have been affected.
