He had brain stroke on 9.05. 2015. He was taken to the hospital where he was operated upon and the blood had been drained out of his brain. He had not gained complete conscious, but partially moving his hands, opening his eyes and not much. Please advise further.

Brain stroke or paralysis can be cured through physiotherapy. It is the most important part of stroke treatment & results in complete recovery in most of the cases. Start it as soon as he is relieved from the hospital. You may consult me.

Huntington's Disease - Understanding the Stages of Symptoms!

Huntington's Disease - Understanding the Stages of Symptoms!

Do you know that Huntington’s disease is an inherited disease? This condition leads to the progressive degeneration of the nerve cells present in your brain. Huntington's disease has severe impact on several functional abilities of an affected person and results in psychiatric, thinking and movement disorders.

Causes
Huntington’s disease occurs from an inherited defect present in a single gene. It is a form of autosomal dominant disorder, which indicates that a person requires just one copy of the defective gene for developing the disorder. Except the genes on the chromosomes, two copies of every gene are inherited by a person. The affected parent may pass along the defective gene copy or the healthy copy.

Symptoms
Commonly, the symptoms of Huntington’s disease start appearing during midlife. It may also affect a person during childhood. The symptoms of this disease vary from person to person. Abnormal movement and weight loss are common symptoms, which occur in all stages.

Early stage

The usual early stage symptoms include the following:

  1. Slight coordination changes, which affect balance and make you clumsy

  2. Uncontrollable fidgety movement

  3. Stiffness and slowing

  4. Irritability and depression

  5. Problems with thinking in difficult situations

Middle stage
With passing time, the symptoms start interfering more with the patient’s daily life and activities. You may start dropping things, face trouble with swallowing, and talking. Staying organized may get tough. Certain emotional changes are indicated.

Later stage
In the later stage of Huntington’s disease, a patient becomes dependent on others for taking care of them. A patient cannot walk or speak, and fidgety movements are likely to become more severe or may subside.

Treatment
Huntington’s disease has no fixed cure. Several measures are followed for managing the symptoms. They are as follows:

  1. Medications are used to manage fidgety movements. Other medicines are also used for controlling any other side effect experienced.

  2. Speech or language therapy may be beneficial in case of speech and swallowing problems.

  3. Physical therapy may help you in improving your control movements. Assistive devices like handrails can be used for managing your changing physical abilities.

  4. Nutritional support is used in which special utensils are used to focus on a nutrient-rich diet.

  5. Exercise is also important for patients with Huntington’s disease as it enables them to stay active and fit.

In case you experience any symptom of Huntington’s disease, it is important for you to consult a doctor immediately. This is a severe disease and early diagnosis and treatment will prevent the condition from worsening.

Dear lybrate user. You seem to have early onset parkinson disease. There are questions to clarify like do you have a family history of parkinsons etc. There are medications which may help your condition but further clarifications are needed, like having any other medical or surgical illnesses or are you on any other medications other than what you have written.

Dear , the problem you are facing could be due to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

While exercising (to cure the numbness in my left leg and foot) my left leg and foot actually experience tingling. Is it due to the problem being cured or the opposite. Do I continue the exercises?

Your symptoms could be due to lumbar spondilosys. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take bio d3 max 1tab odx10days ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

I have problem of insomnia from last few weeks. Please tell me a best medicine for relax my body.
Hell lybrate user- this might be due to following reasons so try to avoid them- a) sleeping in day time. B) going to bed late (generally after 10 pm). C) lack of hair oiling. D) excessive intake of spicy and fried diet and less intake of sweets. Avoid these reasons and use mahabhringraj hair oil for head massage daily before going to bed, you will get relief quickly.

Treatment depends upon what kind of symptoms you have, their severity, duration and any impairment due to them, whether at work or home or personal relations. Yes, perceived somatic complaints like pain could be due to untreated anxiety. In such a case the physical evaluation even with lab investigations may turn out to be normal.

Hopefully this one use may not do any harm. But it looks like you have learned a lesson and will no longer use this substance. There are many controversial claims about marijuana, and we need to wait until the dust settles to finally know the entire truth. The medicinal uses have been proven to a large extent and the use of this substance must be limited to that prescription only. Until then please do not use it at all. The sensation of numbness and perception of reduction in touch sensation may be connected but if you do not indulge in marijuana, it should disappear without much ado. I hope you are one who exercises regularly anyway because that is always good for your health and circulation. So don't worry too much and only if this sensory deprivation persists you will need to meet a doctor.

I suffer from severe migraine at times. How do I overcome from this health problem? Please do suggest some remedies that I can practice from home. Thanks.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.
