What are causes of headache and suggest what type precautions take during this? And also cause of migraine.
Here are some tips to prevent a migraine attack: 1. Identify and avoid migraine triggers. You can keep track of your headache patterns and identify headache triggers by using a headache diary. 2. Recall what was eaten prior to an attack to help you identify chemical triggers. 3. Manage stress to prevent or reduce the severity of the migraine attacks. 4. Follow a regular daily routine and get adequate rest. 5. Exercise (in moderation) regularly.

First of call I undestand he had a stroke - Not clear where in brain but think he had a blocked artery. If you send me the pictures of the scan I can say you about the recovery and plans. He is on good risk factor control as I can see the medicines. If his aretries are blocked at neck or clots moved up from heart I am not sure. He may require change in the medicines if there are clots formed in heart.

Back Pain and Bad Sleep

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur
Back Pain and Bad Sleep

Pain related sleep disruption has affected a large number of people around the globe. Statistics has it that, in India, about 25% of the population suffers from pain-related sleep deprivation. Studies call it ‘the vicious cycle of pain and sleep’ as pain affects your ability to sleep and lack of sleep makes the pain even worse.

Back pain and arthritis are examples of some common pain-related medical disorders. People with these types of chronic pains have reported persistent sleeplessness or have had immense trouble falling asleep.

The following are the primary sleep disorders associated with chronic pain:

  1. Insomnia: It is a medical condition that is characterized by an inability to fall asleep no matter how physically exhausted you are. Insomnia can be acute (lasting for one night to a week) or chronic (that lasts for more than 3 weeks).
  2. Hypersomnia: It is a condition wherein you tend to sleep excessively; in this condition, you will have trouble being awake throughout the day or can fall asleep at any point of time.
  3. Sleep Apnoea: This is a sleep disorder wherein breathing pauses and resumes repeatedly. Risk factors include obesity, age and gender; it is more commonly observed in men. This condition can be chronic with symptoms such as snoring loudly or feeling very tired even after one has had a night’s sleep.
  4. Restless leg syndrome: It is a sleep disorder wherein you continuously move your legs while sleeping. However, this condition can also cause you to move your legs even if you aren’t sleeping.

Some of the causes of sleep disorders due to chronic pain are:

  1. Pain
  2. Worry and anxiety
  3. Sweating at night
  4. Depression and other mental disorders

Treatment

A pain and sleep disorder should be simultaneous as both the components of it, pain and sleep, are interrelated. Some of the ways people with chronic pain can still have a good night’s sleep are:

  • Limiting caffeine intake
  • Abstaining from alcohol and smoking, as these disrupt the sleep cycles, thus aggravating the existing pain.
  • Practicing meditation and other relaxation techniques
  • Pain killers or sleeping pills can be administered, but only with the doctor’s advice.
  • Hot water fomentation over painful area during night, for better sleep. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Keeping the fingers in water for long duration will lead to this and it is common for all. If you have only numbness in the fingers. Please show it to some neurophysician or send more details.

Hi, This is about my mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. So after going to many doctors we have seen that all doctor just repeat mostly the same tests and same medicines and I am very hurt to say this but all they want is money they don't care about patient as we are from middle class family money matters for us but money is nothing in front of my mother's well being and we are ready for treatment cost until they diagnosed her properly and do proper treatment. Please reply as soon as possible.

My answer to your query is: 1.My mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand See there are 2 main types of thyroid related problem one is Hypothyroidism where body does not produces thyroid Hormone sufficiently and another is hyperthyroidism where body produces excess of thyroid hormone in the body. You had not mentioned which thyroid problem your mother is facing among these.In thyroid problem level of serum T3, T4 and TSH always monitored and in conventional allopathic treatment accordingly doses are adjusted. Hence monitoring is very important in all thyroid problem. Shaking of hand and tremors may be because of continuous use of above mentioned medicine also. 2. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. This is the drawback of not getting complete information from site such as google. Of course early sign of parkison disease in most of the cases is tremor (that is also a characteristic pill rolling tremor of parkisons disease) but it is also associated with other signs and symptoms such as rigidity in muscles, slow movement of body, balancing problem, speech changes and also most important mask like face. So first confirm it. 3.Start Homeopathic treatment along with conventional medicines for long term effect without any known side effects as we after monitoring condition will stop the dosage in a time span.

It is possible that you are suffering from neuropraxia, due to mechanical pressure on the peripheral nerves. You would get better on own in a few days. You may take vitamin supplements.

The relationship between seizure disorder and psychological problems is well known. It is not uncommon to encounter a situation where seizure is well controlled but psychological problems persist. If the depression that you feel is occasional and minor, it can be ignored. If it is troublesome, we can treat it with appropriate medicines. If you do not want to take medicines, psychotherapy can be done. Assuming that you do not have any other medical or psychological problems including bipolar disorder, a medicine such as mirtaz 7.5 at bedtime can be suggested in good faith. It will improve depression, is not addictive and also normalizes sleep. But please bear in mind that as these are medicines and considering your age, a consultation would be warranted at some point of time. Take care sir!

Hye, thanks for the query. Basically you are very underweight. Being underweight is a sign of poor nutrition and deficiency leading to low immunity, lack of stamina, reduced energy levels. At times we do not eat the right foods at the right time when needed by the body. Just eating two big meals may not really suffice your needs. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

Hello Dr. My hand is shivering and fingers are like a deadly feeling when I was bike driving. What is my hand problem.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, your hands have a web of nerves that help control movement and provide sensation. When a nerve becomes pinched, you may feel numbness. Bike riding puts pressure on the wrists and palms of your hands. This stress can interfere with the way nerves work. Considerations: *see your doctor rule out the cause of the tingling and numbness. * stay off the bike until your doctor rules out a medical problem.
