When I stand still in one place for more than 25 mins my head starts rotating and blackness gets in front of my eyes. Please guide me what can I do to rectify it?

Hye. Get your ENT check done. Also understand that you are young and your nutritional needs are high for growth and development. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well.    Exercise at least thrice a week.

Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. An antiviral cream or ointment can relieve the burning, itching, or tingling. An antiviral medicine that is oral (pills) or intravenous (shot) can shorten an outbreak of herpes. Prescription antiviral medicines approved for the treatment of both types of herpes simplex include: Acyclovir.

You are suffering from high myopia. High myopia is degenerative condition which can cause various changes in retina. There is no proven role of medicine or food i'm improving it. Wearing uv protective glasses prevents eye of harmful rays. Eating fruits, green vegetables and fish may help, but no proven role in improving or protecting eye.

Hi, In your case, the problem will persists till the time causative factor in there (night shifts)! Either change your job-timings or else can only be maintained by use of eye drops! Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun.

Under eye swelling is usually due to stress and dehydration. Other causes can be loose support structures in the orbit. Initially, try drinking plenty of water to see if that helps. If that does not help then take the advise of a oculoplastic specialist.
