You Might Be At Risk Too! Know Your Chances Of Developing A Brain Tumor
Symptoms you might have a brain tumor

Brain tumour at times displays warning symptoms and at times, none. The tumour pressing on to any specific part of the brain is becoming common symptom. A tumor could be a simple headache, if it persists and doesn't seem normal, it should be tested by a specialist rather than resorting to home remedies.

Here is when you must get tested for a brain tumour:

1. Severe headaches: headaches which are at their worst early in the mornings or after any activity.

2. Many people experience seizures of different kinds. It includes:

A. Myclonic - which are single or multiple spasms, jerks and muscle twitches
B. Tonic-glonic - which shows signs like loss of consciousness, loss of body function control, and not being able to breathe for about 30 seconds and turning blue which is followed by weakness, numbness or sore muscles.
C. Sensory - which is a change in smell, vision, hearing and/or sensation. The person doesn't lose consciousness in this symptom.
D. Complex partial - where a person may have lose of awareness. Another symptom is partial or complete loss of consciousness.

3. Changes in memory and personality.

4. Vomiting and/or nausea

5. Unexplained fatigue

6. Other very specific symptoms of brain tumour might look like these:

A. Change in vision. This could include partial loss of vision or double visibility.
B. Numbness or weakness of face muscles and difficulty in swallowing.
C. Headache caused due to pressure on the tumour.
D. Changes in motor skills and loss of judgment.

Living with Parkinson's Disease

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Rheumatologist, Jaipur

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with Parkinson's. There is no cure for Parkinson's, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.


Signs:
The 4 most common signs of Parkinson's are:

  •   tremors or shaking when at rest
  •   muscle stiffness
  •   slowed movement or problems starting a movement
  •   problems with balance and movement

As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.

Care issues:
When you start to show signs of this disease, you should consult a neurologist for diagnosis and start medicines. Then you should consult a physiatrist or rehabilitation physician for making rehabilitation plan to prevent early onset of disability. Rehabilitation plan contains medicines, physical therapy or specific exercises, occupation-specific advises brace, etc.
The physical therapist can help you learn exercises that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your neurologist or physiatrist to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat Parkinson's disease. You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.


Things you can do to manage your signs:

When walking

  •   walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart.
  • Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
  •   use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
  •   if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
  •   place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
  • Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
  •   stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or lightheaded.

When using the bathroom
  install grab bars on the walls beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.

  •   use a shower chair inside the shower.
  •   install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
  •   shave with an electric razor.

When dressing

  •   wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
  •   wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.

When eating or drinking:

  •   use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
  •   use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
  • Work closely with your rehabilitation team to manage your signs of Parkinson's disease. Rehabilitation can significantly improve your quality of life.

Stroke is very uncommon in young. You need to undergo detailed assessment to find the cause of stroke and then treatment can be given. Consult a neurologist in person.

I' m 29 yrs old and I have a problem of tingling hands and legs when I sleep. I have been facing this problem since I was in high school and this happens at least once in two weeks but irritating enough to keep me awake at night. Please help.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Temporary tingling, numbness and other paraesthesias can be due to nerve compression and gets relieved as soon as the compression is removed, but persistent symptoms are not good. My advice to you since you are very young is to meet up with a neurophysician and get any polyneuropathy etc to be ruled out. You might require some tests and nerve conduction studies to be done for it, which I think is worthwhile. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello, migraine is a form of headache. The pain is usually throbbing, pulsating and bursting in character. At times, the pain is one sided or may involve the whole head. Such pain may last for hours or even days. It is often accompanied by other symptoms like nausea or vomiting. At the same time, there is increased sensitivity to light and sound. The causes of the problem may vary from one patient to another and so will the final choice of the homoeopathic remedy. For leg pain take five phos 6x, 5 tabs twice daily. Take no. 19, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me after 10 days. Thanks.

Go ahead with surgery after discussing the risks and prognosis with your doc. Surgery is essentially the first step in treatment, needed to releive brain pressure as well as to diagnose the type of tumor for further treatment. Leaving it as such may be life threatening.

Migraine Vs. Headache: Know the Difference

Migraine Vs. Headache: Know the Difference

Migraine vs. Headache: know the difference

How to differentiate between a migraine and headache?


When you feel pain or pressure in your head, it may become difficult for you to assess whether you are experiencing a common headache or a migraine. Let's understand how different they are from each other.

A typical headache usually affects both sides of your head and varies from a mild to moderate pain. It can last from 30 minutes to up to a period of one week.

Some specific areas which get affected by a headache are:

  •   Temples
  •   Forehead
  •   Back of your neck

Factors that trigger this headache type are a muscle strain, stress or anxiety.

A migraine, on the other hand, is also a type of a headache which results in an acute throbbing sensation in one part of your head. Usually, migraine headaches are highly painful. Migraine pain makes it difficult for a person to carry out his/her daily tasks. Symptoms or signs associated with migraine attacks are:

  •   Vomiting
  •   Nausea
  •   Sensitivity to sound or light
  •   Pain in the temples
  •   Temporary loss of vision
  •   Pain behind your ear or eye

What are the common causes of a migraine?

  •   Hormonal imbalances in women - fluctuations in oestrogen, especially during menopause or pregnancy seem to trigger a migraine
  •   Drinks like wine and extremely caffeinated beverages
  •   Foods such as salty foods, aged cheese as well as processed foods can trigger the migraine attack.
  •   Medications - vasodilators such as nitroglycerine and oral contraceptives can intensify migraine pain.

How to treat a headache?

Fortunately, you can get rid of stress-induced headaches through over-the-counter treatments, which include:

  •   Aspirin
  •   Acetaminophen
  •   Ibuprofen

How to treat a migraine?

If you experience migraine attacks less frequently, these medicines may give you quick relief:

  •   Triptans, such as rizatriptan (Maxalt) or almotriptan (Axert)
  •   Antinausea medicines, such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine), promethazine (Phenergan) or prochlorperazine (Compazine)
  •   Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, aspirin or ibuprofen

Some preventive tips:

  •   Make changes in your diet such as avoid such foods, including caffeine and alcohol which are believed to trigger headaches.
  •   You can also try muscle relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation to ease the migraine attack.
