I am 20 year old and have migraines for last 1 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but haven't got any relief. What should I do now?

BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Migraine headache is characterized by unilateral pulsating headache associated with nausea/vomiting and photo phobia / phonophobia. There are triggers for migraine like sun exposure, certain foods or smell, lack of sleep, excess caffeine etc. The triggers are variable for different patients. Migraine attacks can be managed by simple painkillers like paracetamol but in resistant cases drugs like sumatriptan may be needed. For frequent episodes of migraine preventive medications are to be taken by prescription. There are various medicines available for this and if control is not achieved with one medicine another drug is to be added. Don't take painkillers daily for migraine headaches, it's better to take the preventive medicines. Painkillers on long term basis can further aggravate the migraine headache into medication overuse headache (read my health tips on medication headache) follow these lifestyle changes to avoid migraine headache 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3. Do not consume excess caffeine / carbohydrates / alcohol or smoke. 4. Exercise daily (aerobics and cardiovascular) 5. Identify your headache trigger and try to avoid it. 6. Do pranayam daily. All said and done, one suggestion: please have a thorough discussion before starting off on some medication on your own. Each body is unique and will respond differently to different formulations. With homeopathy, the aim is to treat the individual holistically instead of just removing the symptoms.

What is meant by mild changes of cerebral atrophy in MRI Brain scan .My dad age is 56 yr.PLease tell.
Cerebral atrophy is a common feature of many of the diseases that affect the brain. Atrophy of any tissue means a decrement in the size of the cell, which can be due to progressive loss of cytoplasmic proteins. In brain tissue, atrophy describes a loss of neurons and the connections between them.

Jisko aap vaham kah rahe hain, usse medical bhaasha mein auditory hallucination kehte hain, aur uski vajah psychosis hoti hai; sambhav hai aapki maataji ko schizophrenia - jaisi koi bimari bhi ho, ya toh dawaiyon ke side-effects se auditory hallucinations ho rahe hon. Par samajh ne wali baat ye hai ki unke liye jo aawazein sunaiy de rahin hain, woh utni hi vastavik hain jitni hamare liye hoti hain jab koi sach mein baat kar rahaa ho - unko chahe aap kitna bhi samjhayen, woh is baat ko samajh nahin paayengi. Psychiatrist isska sahi nidaan karke sahi ilaaj kar sakte hain - dawaon ka asar bhi seemit hotaa hai. Agar Parkinson Disease ko lekar koi samsya ho to mujhe bataiye, shaayad main koi sevaa kar sakun.

When I sleep in the front of cooler, my left leg getting shiver. What is this problem, pls tell me.

When I sleep in the front of cooler, my left leg getting shiver. What is this problem, pls tell me.
HI, When the cool air blows , it hinders the blood circulation due to constriction of the blood vessels and thus you may feel like shivering. Wear socks and cover your legs with a bedsheet and you will feel comfortable.
