Thanks.
Hi, insomnia is out come of irregular life style. Stress, anxiety, depression, alcoholism, caffiene, nicotine r d main reasons for insomnia, try to get ride of all these irregularities, if any. Go for meditation to reduce stress, anxiety & depression & to carry plenty of oxygen to calm down your nerve to ease your problem. Take plenty of water to eliminate toxins. Your diet b easily digestible, simple, non irritant on time. Take homoeo medicine: @ coffea cruda 200- 6 pills at bed time. @ nux com30-6 polls, thrice a day. Insomnia can very well b treated in homoeopathy, privately take, care.

Hi my sister has a severe migraine problem. It is very frequent and is triggered by almost anything. For example being in sun for a long period of time, travelling in a diesel car, not drinking enough water or sometimes for no reason. The pain is severe and she ends up vomiting almost everything she eats. She gets better only on the next day. What do you think should help minimise and normalise her troubles. Looking forward to hearing from all the esteemed doctors in the Lybrate community. Thanks in advance.

Dear Lybrate user, Here is the some information for you hope it would be helpful. Causes of headaches may include fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, the effects of medications, the effects of recreational drugs, viral infections, common colds, head injury, rapid ingestion of a very cold food or beverages, and dental or sinus issues. This can trigger your headache: foods : spices, wine , chocolate, citrus • food additives • sleep : both too much and too little • stress : mainly offset Home remedies: • Stay Hydrated • Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. • Menthol and menthone are the primary components of mint which are very effective in alleviating headaches. • Peppermint contains menthol that helps open up clogged blood vessels that cause headaches. It also has calming and soothing effects. • Basil works as a muscle relaxant, making it a helpful treatment for mild headaches caused by tense muscles. Plus, it has calming and analgesic effects. • Simply smelling the soothing scent of lavender essential oil can be of great help in relieving tension headaches. Research suggests that it can also help improve migraine symptoms. • The cold from ice helps reduce inflammation that contributes to headaches. Plus, it has a numbing effect on the pain. • Simply massage your forehead and temples with a few drops of rosemary oil mixed in a tablespoon of carrier oil. • Crush a few cloves gently and put them in a sachet or a clean handkerchief. Inhale the smell of the crushed cloves whenever you have a headache until you get some relief from the pain. • Simply eat an apple with some salt. • Accupuncture: Press and massage the fleshy area between the thumb and index finger, at the highest spot of the muscle when both the thumb and finger are brought close together. Do this for one or two minutes and then repeat on the other hand. Exercise Regular exercise can reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines. When one exercises, the body releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Exercise reduces stress and helps individuals to sleep at night. Stress and inadequate sleep are two migraine triggers. Homeopathic treatment In order to prescribe a homeopathic remedy, it is crucial to discover what is unique about the way an individual experiences a headache. For example, all migraine sufferers may experience nausea, but a particular individual may feel thirsty for cold drinks with the headache. Thirst for cold drinks is the characteristic symptom that sets one migraine sufferer apart from others. There are hundreds of possible remedies for the treatment of headaches, so the key is finding which homeopathic remedy most closely matches your symptoms. Do not allow Headache to make your life miserable. Switch over to the homeopathic treatments and enjoy a stress free life. Wish to know more about the effective homeopathic treatment?

When my mom was young at the age of 20 she had an accident and had a brain surgery. And now she is 47 years old and she is suffering from memory loss and When she looses her memory she talks something senseless which does not have any link with our personal life. Please doctor help us is it urgent to admit her ?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, M.D Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Hi lybrate-user, head injury can cause several problems not only memory loss. A head injury about 27 years ago must have done some structural changes inside your mom's brain which r responsible for this. A brain injury can change a personality. At times it requires treatment, both pharmacological n nonpharnacological. But at the same time care givers need some training how to tackle this kind of problems in a sympathetic way. So it will b better to consult with both a neurologist n a psychiatrist. Thanks.

My friend met with an accident on Saturday night due to blood clot in central part of the brain, he is in deep coma right now since that day. Please help me know he can be recovered.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The outcome for coma and vegetative state depends on the cause and on the location, severity, and extent of neurological damage: outcomes range from recovery to death. People may emerge from a coma with a combination of physical, intellectual, and psychological difficulties that need special attention. Recovery usually occurs gradually, with patients acquiring more and more ability to respond. Some patients never progress beyond very basic responses, but many recover full awareness. Patients recovering from coma require close medical supervision. A coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. Some patients may regain a degree of awareness after vegetative state. Others may remain in a vegetative state for years or even decades. The most common cause of death for a person in a vegetative state is infection such as pneumonia. Duration depends on the severity of the injury and patient general condition, often short; rarely more than 2-4 weeks.

Mood swings can be of genetical or psychological origin. You need to determine this. Has he gone through any stress that he couldn' t deal with? you can also try counselling for mood swings which is" talk therapy" where the counsellor will try to understand what' s happening in his life and what are his worries and stress. Ayurveda is another alternative that you can try out. What cannot be found in scans, can be diagnosed by pulse diagnosis. For counselling please click on private chat.

I used propranolol hydrochloride tablets for 2 months to cure migraine pains. Will it have an serious side effects on heart? Does this medicine is the cause of my palpitations? Thank you.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Propranolol does have side effects but it certainly does not cause a rise in heart beats/ palpitations. Side effects depend upon the dose of propranolol taken rather than the duration for which it is taken. Usually the dose taken for migraine prophylaxis does not cause side effects unless you have an underlying heart disease before starting it.

First thing that should be done in this problem is to improve sleep hygiene. - Fix your time to go to sleep. - Avoid alcohol, tea, coffee in evening - Light exercise will also help in getting good sleep - Use your bed for sleeping only and don't watch TV, read books on bed - Avoid day time naps - If you fail to sleep within 10 minutes of going to bed, get up and start to distract yourself. - Bath with warm water in evening will help. Try to improve sleep hygiene and if condition don't improve consult a psychiatrist or sleep specialist. Medicines like Benzodiazepines like Clonazepam, Alprazolam etc help in getting good sleep. Z-drugs like zolpidem or zopiclone also help in getting good sleep. These drugs have abuse potential so should be taken for short time only and under proper prescription. Thanks, hope this helps you.

I am under treatment for epilepsy and have been prescribed encorate chrono 500 mg. And a common side effect of this drug is hairloss. Will visiting a dermatologist be helpful? I know that changing the epilepsy drug is an option but my neurologist isn't agreeing for it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Then change the neurologist, as hair loss in your age is highly depressing. There are wonderful new anti-epileptics which act without causing hair loss. A good doctor understands the need of the patient and tailors the drugs accordingly. If there is no other option he can tell like that, since other options are there and he is not willing to use them, you have no other option other than to change the neuro.
