I came to know that my disease is wasting of muscle may be called as atrophy or sarcipenia.Please help

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Dear , yes your disease is called atrophy or more specifically sacropenia. This is mainly seen in elderly after the age of 50. To combat this it is better to go in for exercises esp resistive exercises. This will help in building up the present muscles and helping prevent further loss. If you require anymore clarifications please feel free to consult me. Preethi mathew (mpt, maiap) neuro-physiotherapist

I am 20 year old female and have some facial problems since birth. I can not close my left eyelid and it is always tearing. I cannot smile properly and it is so weird when smile goes to only one side. I can not lift my left eyebrows too. People used to mock me since childhood and it become too stressful to face public. I have lost all my confidence and happiness due to this problem and have searched about this situation. I found my condition is called facial nerve palsy. What should I do to cure this completely. Could this be cured completed. This made my life so pathetic and I am fed up of this. My future, happiness and confidence has been destroyed due to this. What should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrate user I empathise with you absolutely. People are ignorant and are pathetically insensitive to an illness which happens due not to your fault. Might be some birth trauma (as is common in forceps delivery.). First of all I shall explain what is facial nerve. You should have good knowledge about it which will help you to tide over the mental agony you are going through. We have 12 pairs of nerve bundles called cranial nerves 1.2. 3. Up to 12.12 on right and 12 on left coming out of the brain. The first nerves carry the smell sensation called olfactory nerves. The second carry visual sensation to the brain (helping us to see) called optic nerves. The facial nerve is cranial nerve number 7th. Each supplies all the muscles of one side of the face. Because of this we can smile. Frown. Move the eyelids. Close the eyes etc. When both nerves (right and left) are sound. The muscles move normally so that your smile is perfect. Eyes close equally. But when one nerve is damaged. It causes weakness in the muscles of that side. And the other side being sound will cause normal movement of muscles of that side. As a result the corner of the mouth will be dragged to the sound side because the other sided muscles can not move due to nerve paralysis. This causes facial asymmetry. And you can not close your eyes effectively in the affected side. There is a risk to this. Because your affected sided eyelid cannot close. Your cornea of that eye will be constantly exposed and become dry and will form ulcer called' corneal ulcer'this has to be prevented. Else your vision will be affected badly. Coming to treatment: you must consult a neuro physician to deal with this problem. Because it gas become an old problem. It will take time for correction. So never give up. Apply artificial tear eye drops (like tear plus) one drop in each eye every 8 hourly. To prevent corneal damage. You will need some form of physiotherapy including electrical stimulation of the facial nerve if applicable in your case. I expect a fair outcome in your case. Good luck!

My father is paralysed and he is using leofin 10 for longer time but we don't see any improvement is there any alternative medicine for this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
If your father already taking medicine for paralysis prescribed by any other physician. Discuss him about your father's situation in follow-up. Paralysis is a chronic conditions which take long time to treat completely. So, wait for some time. Give healthy diet to your father. Advice him do exercise which are helpful for recovery of paralysis.

Sir i have headache problem since 10 years.MRI of head is normal. Dr.says it is Migrane. I am using several pain killers.Please suggest what should i do?

You have to tell in detail about headache. What is intensity on scale of 0-10, 0 being no pain and 10 being severe pain, you have to tell the frequency like its everyday or every other day and what is your age. Is it on one side of head? Is it throbbing? Do u have tears from eyes? Or do you have vertigo? Or vomiting? The suggestion would be based on that.

Dear Vishal, Since your grandmother is already having Alzheimer's, you can not prevent it. You can reduce its progression further by giving cholinesterase inhibitor kind of drugs. For you not getting Alzheimer's later, you can keep active life style, play memory games, eat healthy and exercise regularly.

Hello, according to ayurveda this might be due to increased body heat & acidity level for migraine too. 1) massage with stress relief oil or warm coconut oil to head, neck, and ears. 2) apply chandan powder +2-4 saffron threads+ pinch of cinnamon (dalchini) lep with rose water to forehead. 3) take 8 hrs sleep in the night. 4) avoid oily & spicy food. 5) pour 3-4 drops of warm pure cow ghee in both nostrils in head low position 6) do eye check up if headache persist

DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 10 gm of ajwain seeds along with 10 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. C) take 5gm of fine powder of nutmeg along with triplala juice at night before sleep…. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Is there any home medicine for migraine related vertigo. I am having motion sickness when walking and my doctor specified its migraine related vertigo. Is this causes tiredness and bitterness in mouth too?

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL)

Migrae migraine is more of a preventable disease than curative. You have to identify the triggers of your headache and avoid them. Avoid exposure to bright light, loud sound, sunlight. Avoid stress. Avoid chocolate and coffee. Have enough sleep. Drink 3-4 litres of water daily. I can prescribe you prophylactic medicines too if you want.

Cerebral palsy is the condition in which brain got some small trauma at the time of or before birth. And this is a irrepairable damage. But on the contrast the manifestation of this damage in brain can be controlled by utilising brain plasiticty. Make sure to start the child with occupational therapy and physiotherapy at the earliest. Latest studies show good result from sensory enrichment therapy. Later you can add speech therapy too. If child's cognition is not effected the child might as well go and get his schooling properly. Just do not waste time thinking. Be practical, each moment is crucial for brain development.
