Are Tech devices causing neck pain...please read: TEXT NECK SYNDROME...

What is text neck syndrome?
Text neck is the term used to describe the neck pain and damage sustained from looking down at your cell phone, tablet, or other wireless devices too frequently and for too long.
Symptoms of text neck syndrome?
Text neck most commonly causes neck pain and soreness. In addition, looking down at your cell phone too much each day can lead to:

Upper back pain ranging from a chronic, nagging pain to sharp, severe upper back muscle spasms. Shoulder pain and tightness, possibly resulting in painful shoulder muscle spasm. If a cervical (neck) nerve becomes pinched, pain and possibly neurological symptoms can radiate down your arm and into your hand
How is text neck treated?

First, prevention is key. Here are several pieces of advice for preventing the development or advancement of text neck:

@hold your cell phone at eye level as much as possible. The same holds true for all screens - laptops and tablets should also be positioned so the screen is at eye level and you don't have to bend your head forward or look down to view it.
@take frequent breaks from your phone and laptop throughout the day. For example, set a timer or alarm that reminds you to get up and walk around every 20 to 30 minutes. If you work in an office, make sure your screen is set up so that when you look at it, you are looking forward, with your head positioned squarely in line with your shoulders and spine.
The bottom line is to avoid looking down with your head bent forward for extended periods throughout the day.

Next, rehabilitation is important. Consult physiotherapist get it check and start with specific rehabilitation.

Homeopath, Chennai
No tablets which are used for delaying periods are good for a women. So I will not recommend you to have it. Kindly do not take such tablets they are very harmful & you never know what side effects they will cause to you. Thanks take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Whenever emergency contraceptive pill is taken the forthcoming menstrual cycle is disturbed. The pattern of irregularity is unpredictable. Chances of pregnancy are remote.

I had sex with my girlfriend some days back but she didn't got her periods till now as her periods dates are normally between 10-14 and we had test on preganews also 2 times and it shows negative so what else it can be?

Homeopath, Mumbai
If you had unprotected sex than there is chances of pregnancy! If you had taken any pill than period may delay! Due to any infection also period may get delay! Sometimes early pregnancy doesn't show in home test! Do home test early in morning again! Or else it's still not so much delay so if still negative results than just wait!

If the amniotic fluid around the baby is less, then your wife has to get admitted for induction of labour and eventually delivery of the baby. The baby is mature and can be delivered anytime from now onwards.

High Blood Pressure In Hindi - उच्च रक्तचाप

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
High Blood Pressure In Hindi - उच्च रक्तचाप

रक्तचाप धमनियों द्वारा बहने वाले खून से धमनियों की दीवारों पर लगाए गए बल की मात्रा है। उच्च रक्तचाप (हाइपरटेन्षन) को धमनियों में उच्च दबाव (तनाव) के रूप में परिभाषित किया जाता है। रक्तचाप 2 तरीके से मापा जाता है। सिस्टल रक्तचाप हृदय के संकुचन के दौरान धमनियों में दबाव के बराबर होता है। डायस्टोलिक दबाव दिल की छूट के दौरान धमनियों में दबाव है। वे दोनों पारे के मिलीमीटर (एम.एम.एच.जी) में मापे जाते है।

जिस व्यक्ति का रक्तचाप लगातार 140/90 एम.एम.एच.जी या उससे अधिक, हो वह हाइपरटेन्षन से पीड़ित है। रक्तचाप आमतौर पर पांच श्रेणियों में बांटा जाता है:

1. हाइपोटेंशन (कम रक्तचाप)
- सिस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 90 या उससे कम, या
- डायस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 60 या उससे कम

2. साधारण
- सिस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 90-119, और
- डायस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 60-79

3. प्रीहाइपरटेन्षन
- सिस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 120-139, या
- डायस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 80-8 9

4. चरण 1 उच्च रक्तचाप
- सिस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 140-159, या
- डायस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 90- 99

5. चरण 2 उच्च रक्तचाप
- 160 से अधिक सिस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी, या
- डायस्टोलिक एम.एम.एच.जी 100 से अधिक

यदि आपको उच्च रक्तचाप है, तो यह उच्च दबाव आपके दिल और रक्त वाहिकाओं पर अतिरिक्त तनाव डालता है। समय के साथ, यह अतिरिक्त तनाव आपके दिल के दौरे या स्ट्रोक के जोखिम को बढ़ाता है। उच्च रक्तचाप की जटिलताओं में हृदय रोग, गुर्दा (गुर्दे) रोग, धमनियों का सख्त होना (धमनीकलाकाठिन्य या धमनीकाठिन्य), आंखों की क्षति, और स्ट्रोक (मस्तिष्क क्षति) शामिल है। 

उच्च रक्तचाप के लक्षण
उच्च रक्तचाप वाले अधिकांश लोग किसी भी लक्षण का अनुभव नहीं करेंगे, जब तक कि स्तर 180/110 एम.एम.एच.जी तक उच्च नहीं हो जाता। हालांकि, यदि उपचार न किया जाए, तो यह गंभीर समस्याओं जैसे कि दिल के दौरे और स्ट्रोक के जोखिम को बढ़ा देता है।
उच्च रक्तचाप के लक्षणों में शामिल हैं:

  1. सिरदर्द, आमतौर पर कई दिनों तक टिकाऊ
  2. मतली - उल्टी की आग्रह के साथ पेट में अस्वस्थता और असुविधा का ख्याल
  3. उल्टी 
  4. चक्कर आना - हल्कापन, अस्थिरता और सिर का चक्कर
  5. धुंधली या द्विगुण दृष्टि (डिप्लोपिआ)
  6. नकसीर फूटना (एपिस्टेक्सिस) - नाक से खून आना
  7. घबराहट 
  8. डिस्पेनिया - श्वास कष्ट

अगर कोई भी इन लक्षणों का अनुभव करता है, तो उन्हे तुरंत अपने चिकित्सक को देखना चाहिए।

यदि लंबे समय तक बिना-इलाज छोड़ा जाता है, तो उच्च रक्तचाप निम्नलिखित जटिलताओं को जन्म दे सकता है:
दिल का दौरा, स्ट्रोक, हृद्पात (ह्रदय का रुक जाना)

  1. धमनीविस्फार
  2. खून के थक्के
  3. गुर्दा रोग और गुर्दा की विफलता
  4. उपापचयी लक्षण
  5. संज्ञानात्मक और स्मृति समस्याओं

उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण
उच्च रक्तचाप के दो प्रकार होते हैं:

आवश्यक उच्च रक्तचाप (प्राथमिक उच्च रक्तचाप): जब उच्च रक्तचाप पहचाने जाने का कोई योग्य कारण नहीं होता।
माध्यमिक उच्च रक्तचाप: उच्च रक्तचाप एक अंतर्निहित कारण के साथ, जैसे रोग या विशिष्ट दवाएं।

विभिन्न स्थितियों और दवाओं से उच्च रक्तचाप हो सकता है, जिनमें शामिल हैं:

  1. बाधक निंद्रा अश्वसन
  2. गुर्दे से संबंधित समस्याएं
  3. अधिवृक्क ग्रंथि ट्यूमर 
  4. थायरॉयड समस्याएं
  5. रक्त वाहिकाओं में कुछ दोष जिसके साथ आप जन्म लेते हैं (जन्मजात)
  6. कुछ दवाएं, जैसे जन्म नियंत्रण की गोलियां, ठंड के उपचार, डिकॉन्गेंस्टेंट्स, दर्द निवारक और कुछ निर्धारित दवाओं
  7. अवैध दवाएं, जैसे कोकीन और एम्फ़ेटामीन्स
  8. शराब का दुरुपयोग या शराब का चिरकालिक उपयोग

इसके अलावा, आप उच्च रक्तचाप के बढ़ते जोखिम पर हैं, यदि आप:

  1. 65 वर्ष से अधिक आयु के हैं।
  2. अधिक वजन या मोटापे से ग्रस्त हैं।
  3. अफ्रीकी या कैरिबियाई मूल के हैं।
  4. आपका कोई रिश्तेदार, उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित है।
  5. बहुत ज्यादा नमक खाते हैं और पर्याप्त फल और सब्जियां नहीं खाते हैं।
  6. पर्याप्त व्यायाम नही करते हैं।
  7. बहुत अधिक शराब या कॉफी पीते हैं (या अन्य कैफीन आधारित पेय)।
  8. धूम्रपान करते हैं।
  9. पर्याप्त नींद नहीं मिलती है।

Fifth Disease "Slapped Cheek Syndrome" And Homeopathy

Homeopath, Ludhiana
Fifth Disease "Slapped Cheek Syndrome" And Homeopathy

Fifth disease also known as slapped cheek syndrome is a mild and common illness in children that is caused by a virus called human parvovirus b19.
The medical name for fifth disease is" erythema infectiosum (ei).

Symptoms and signs include a rash as if the face has been slapped. In north america, the disease has been referred to as slapped cheek syndrome or as" slapcheek. Parvovirus infection is a common and highly contagious childhood ailment. It was one of five common childhood illnesses characterized by a rash and therefore named" fifth disease.
The name fifth disease comes from a classification system developed in the 1890's but it is no longer used. It was the fifth in a list of the five most common rashes of childhood and acquired this name.

This infection occurs primarily in school-aged children between 5 and 14 years of age during winter and spring. In most children, parvovirus infection is mild and requires little treatment.

The virus is thought to spread via droplets in the air as respiratory secretions transmitted by coughs and sneezesor by blood from other infected people. Early during the illness, nasal secretions contain the viral dna. Blood has been found to contain viral particles as well as dna.

Cases of fifth disease can occur either sporadically or as part of community outbreaks.

Outbreaks occur mainly in elementary schools during the spring.

Half of the cases occur from spread of the virus to others in the patient's household. Transmission of the infection in schools is less common.

About 10% or fewer of young children are immune.

People with this illness are contagious before the onset of symptoms and are probably not contagious after they develop the rash.

The incubation period (the time from acquiring the infection to the development of symptoms) usually lasts between 4 and 21 days.

Homeopathic remedies for fifth disease - slapped cheek syndrome

Apis, belladona, chamomilla, calendula, sulphur, urtica urens etc.

To find out the right medicine consult a homeopath.

I'm 23 year old female. I got married on May 9 2016. My breasts are leaking for last 3 days. It's happening only when it is pressed. The discharge is watery and white in Color. I consulted a gynaecologist who referred me to take a prolactin test. I did it yesterday and the result is 11ng/ml which shows am not pregnant. Can you please help me for this problem.

Homeopath, Raebareli
Please note that this condition can result from taking certain medications such as birth control pills or anti-depressants, from being pregnant or recently being pregnant, from low thyroid hormone levels, trauma to chest or rarely from a small benign (not cancerous) pituitary tumor. Your body may be making extra amounts of prolactin, which can cause this white discharge from your nipples.

Basti Therapy: Best Way To Treat Vata Issues, Especially In Monsoon

Basti Therapy: Best Way To Treat Vata Issues, Especially In Monsoon

In Ayurveda, vata is considered to be extremely important. It regulates the movements of your body and mind. In the body, large intestine is considered to be the main site of vata as well as in the bone tissue. Therefore, medications which are administered through the rectum affect the bone tissue. Vata maintains and regulates our daily activities, nervous system as well as our excretion. An enthusiastic and a lively mind are all manifestations of a balance of Vata. 

Subsequently, its imbalance is considered as detrimental to health. Basti therapy is a treatment that manages the pain and treats the diseases arising from this imbalance. In this, a liquid concoction of sesame oil and other herbs are inserted through the rectum, which in turn treats various ailments arising from the imbalance of vata, such as pain in the joints, in the spine and back as well as painful menstruations.
Before Basti therapy, Abhyangam and Sedanam are practiced. Enema can be assumed, but Basti has power to detox and nourish as well. Yoga Basti for is done for 8 days, Karma Basti for 1 day and Kala Basti for 30 days, or according to the health issues and affected system, in order  to drain doshas and nourish dhatus.

There are primarily three types of Basti therapy:

  1. Niruha
  2. Anuvasana
  3. Uttar Basti

All three of them, individually treat various ailments, some of them are:

  • Stiffness in the back and pain in the spine: In this method, pain in the spine and vertebral column are managed and treated. It involves pouring warm, herbal oil on the spinal cord, which is retained by small wells created from flour or gram paste. This method is particularly beneficial for treating back problems. This method nourishes the liquid in the joints that consequently relieves you of the pain.
  • Bell's palsy: Bell's palsy is a disease where the muscles on the face become weak or you suffer from a facial paralysis. Basti therapy has proved to be particularly beneficial in treating it. In this, a medicated oil is placed on the head for a specific period of time which helps in treating Bell's palsy as well as any numbness on the face.
  • Painful menstruation: Though menstruation is a natural process, most women suffer from extremely painful cramps during this time. Anuvasana therapy is extremely useful in lessening this pain. In this various oils and decoction enema is provided to patients, the consumption of which have resulted in significant improvements. Painful menstruation cramps are also treated by Uttar Basti where medicines are provided through the uterus. This method helps in cleaning the blockages in the uterus as well as providing nourishment to it. 

Ailments that accompany monsoon: Though monsoon provides relief from the scorching summer, but at the same time it is accompanied by a host of diseases. With the onset of monsoon and the fall in temperature, there is a tendency for acidity and the vata that was accumulated in summer manifests itself in loss of appetite, indigestion and piles. Basti therapy operates as a corrective for the vata imbalance and treats various digestion related problems. At the same time it also prevents return of the ailments. The oils and decoction used rejuvenates the body and as well as help in regulating the metabolism.

If it is fresh bleeding bright red in color and coming with clots, you may need a checkup. Small quantity of dark brown-black discharge may come off and on during the first 2-3 weeks after delivery but every day the colour get lighter and then becomes white before it stops completely. Anything ore than this needs checkup.

I am 20 years old. I am taking diane 35 as I had irregular periods and recently I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. And thats why I took ipill in the next hour. When should I resume my diane 35?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The medication will be less effective if you miss doses. If you miss a dose of this medication, and you remember within 12 hours, take the missed dose. If more than 12 hours have passed, discard the missed tablet and continue to take the remaining tablets in the pack at the usual time. An additional non-hormonal method of birth control (e.g. Condoms) should be used until the pack is empty. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

I am 32 years od female, I have a hair loss problem wid my weight gain then I digaoins and found PCOS before three months back I starts medicine in homeopathy but did not found any results pls help me.

General Physician, Nashik
Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne. Weight gain and trouble losing weight. Extra hair on the face and body. Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp. Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding. Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do. Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods. Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5 kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.
