Headaches - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

Headaches such as migraines, cluster headaches, sinus headaches and tension headaches are really agonizing conditions that most of us has faced for at least once in their lives. Most of the time pounding headaches are treated with anti-nausea and pain relieving drugs. Headaches typically cause unwanted symptoms like nausea and vomiting and make us feel week throughout the day. When a headache occurs, the pain originates from the surrounding tissues around the brain or the skull, since anatomically speaking the skull or the brain itself do not have any nerves that may give rise to the sensation known as pain. Since pain are only felt in your metabolism when there are pain fibers in that particular part of our anatomy.

Headaches can develop when and only when nerves and the thin layer of tissue that surrounds the muscles which encases our skull, eyes, ears, sinuses becomes inflamed or irritated for a plethora of reasons. Headaches can be sharp, dull, throbbing, intermittent, constant, intense and mild, depending on the cause of the malady.

In the year 2013, the IHS (International Headache Society) released their latest classification system for this malady. It was though by the experts on this disease that as so many people suffer from this agonizing illness, and since the treatment of headaches becomes very difficult at times, it was hoped that this new classification system will help the health-care professionals to make a more accurate diagnosis of this disease and hence allow a more better and effective options for its treatment.

The three major categories that heads has been classified based upon the pain of source are:

  • Primary headaches
  • Secondary headaches and
  • Facial pain, cranial neuralgias and other kinds of more typical headaches

Primary headaches includes tension, cluster and tension headaches. According to WHO (World Health Organization) 1 out of 20 percent people across the globe suffer with daily tension headaches in their lives. While cluster and migraine headaches affect most men and women during their puberty. Secondary headaches are those headaches which occurs because of underlying structural problems in the head and neck of the patients. This is a very bad kind of medical condition, which can be life threatening at times. Hangovers, traumatic and post-concussion headaches are also included in this type.

The third type of headaches which consists of cranial neuralgia happens because of the inflammation of any one or more of the 12 cranial nerves which originates from the brain. One typical example of these headaches is trigeminal neuralgia, which occurs because of the inflammation of the cranial nerve V and cause intense facial pain when it get inflamed or irritated.

Treatable by medical professional Usually self diagnosable Lab test sometimes required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
Sensation of tightness or pressure across your forehead or on the sides and back of your head. Tenderness on your scalp, neck and shoulder muscles. Dull, aching head pain.

Skin and Hair: How stress affects their conditioning?

Skin and Hair: How stress affects their conditioning?
Stress is an inevitable occurrence in the life of all individuals. It takes many forms, such as social, mental and physical to name a few. Anything from work deadlines, commuting burdens, financial obstacles to raising a kid stress doesn't stop. Whilst some personalities take it with ease and find means of dealing with it, others crumble to states of depression and even resort to suicide the obvious winner here being stress itself. I would like to cite a metaphor for the stress-the elastic rubber band. When one holds an elastic rubber band between the thumbs and when the band is left slack, it is symbolic of people being in a restful state such as sleep. When the band is pulled out to a comfortable stretch, it is comparable to people having a regular working/functioning day before returning to a relaxed state. However, when the elastic band is pulled out to an over-stretched position then it is a warning to the individual to take note and get back to a comfortable position. The overstretched position has two places to go. It can deplete completely and crumble or break if it continues to overstretch itself. Like the elastic rubber band, every individual is equipped with getting back to the comfortable state provided the effort and will exist. The amount of stress we wish to take in is in our hands as is the amount we wish to neglect. Apart from the various sizes and shapes, stress comes in as mentioned above, stress can be an important external indicator of internal health. One such indicator is the largest organ of our body, the skin. The skin & hair are generally referred to as mirror images of internal body system functioning and are often the first indicator/sign of disease activity originating from within. We dedicate this write-up to our skin& hair, for, they are our shining armour in the fight against a merciless opponent- stress. Effects of stress on the skin: When we are stressed, our body releases a hormone known as cortisol. The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all body processes. This puts an individual at increased risk of numerous health problems, including anxiety, depression, digestive problems, headaches, heart disease, sleep problems, weight gain, memory and concentration impairment. The mind and skin are connected at many intricate levels. One theory is the target organ theory: some people get ulcers, some people get migraines and other people get skin rashes as the skin is their target organ to channelize stress. As the skin is exposed to view, skin conditions elicit reactions from the patients' environment and the easy accessibility of the skin allows patients to interact directly with their rashes, adding further to emotional and mechanical stress. So, a skin disorder in itself can be a cause of concern and thus lead to stress, while on the other hand, stress can be considered as a triggering/perpetuating/aggravating factor in the causation of various skin diseases. 1. General conditions: Dryness: periods of chronic stress will release the hormone cortisol that in turn damages the skin's ability to retain water leading to dryness. One must drink plenty of water throughout the day. Application of a non-allergenic, fragrance-free moisturizer while the skin is slightly damp traps moisture, thereby protecting the skin from dryness. Sleep: poor quality sleepers have increased signs Of intrinsic skin aging including fine lines, uneven pigmentation and reduced elasticity and hollowness in the under-eye region. On an average 6-8 hours of sleep is warranted along with plenty of fluid intake. There are a multitude of under-eye creams in the market with moderate benefits. Dermal fillers can be injected into the tear trough, a hollow groove in the under-eye region, which thereby replenishes the sparse hyaluronic acid there. early to bed, early to rise makes the skin healthy, worthy and nice- is the mantra here for sure. Fine lines: Constant use of the muscles of facial expression, like frowning and pursuing one's lips when one is stressed or angry can lead to deeper wrinkles in these areas over time. Topical retinoid creams, botox injections and platelet-rich plasma therapy are some of the useful modalities to target fine lines and wrinkles. Immune system: chronic stress usually suppresses the immune system, increases susceptibility to infections and exacerbates some allergic and inflammatory diseases. A balanced and healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, oral antioxidants along with a proper exercise regime will definitely give a boost to one's immune sytem. Others: Smoking and air pollution have been confirmed as critical chronic stressors that impact skin aging significantly. Air born particle exposure from traffic is associated with significant increase in pigment spots and facial wrinkles. Avoiding smoking and using sunscreens on a regular basis along with physical sun protection can go a long way. 2. Skin conditions: Acne: The exact cause by which stress worsens acne is not known but a possible explanation is that during periods of stress, stress hormones are activated. The cells that produce sebum have receptors for stress hormones. Sebum is the oily substance that mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria to clog the hair follicles, leading to a pimple or acne cyst. Acne excorie: It is a skin condition seen particularly in adolescent girls under emotional stress, who pick and squeeze pimples leaving behind an unsightly dark, pigmented scabbed wounds. Such patients are the ones who usually spend hours in front of the mirror trying to correct any self-perceived body dysmorphisms. Treatment of the wounded areas is essential with topical antibiotics and wound healing agents. Similarly, anti-acne therapy may be initiated. For areas where dark flat stains are left behind, topical skin lightening creams (preferably azelaic acid) or chemical peels may be initiated provided there are no wounded areas in the vicinity. Rosacea: stress increases blood flow to the skin that causes capillaries to expand. Stress also triggers flushing, a condition known as rosacea wherein the skin of the cheeks, chin, nose and forehead becomes persistently red and with possible development of red bumps similar to acne. Sometime small blood vessels can also become visible in such patients. It may be affiliated with a weakened immune system and temperature changes. Topical and oral antibiotics, sunscreens of spf 30 or above, topical retinoids, topical azelaic acid cream etc. Are all helpful in the treatment of rosacea. Psoriasis is a chronic recurrent autoimmune skin disorder, the cause of which is unknown wherein the skin cells multiply very rapidly leading to red, rough hard plaques surmounted with silvery scales, commonly seen on elbows, knees, palms, soles, nails and/or scalp. Stress is a very well known trigger factor for psoriasis. Chronic psoriasis in itself also leads to psychological difficulties, including poor self-esteem, sexual dysfunction, anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation. It is of utmost importance to moisturize the skin as frequently as possible along with the prescribed medication given by the dermatologist (which may consist of omega-3 fatty acid capsules, antihistamines, topical corticosteroid / topical vitamin d analogues or oral medicines, etc.). Atopic eczema/dermatitis: A condition is commonly seen in childhood, appears as oozing red rashes on cheeks (usually in infants), elbows or elbow folds and behind the knees to name a few. The condition is severely itchy at times. Children with atopic dermatitis have higher levels of emotional distress and more behavioral problems than healthy children. Teasing and bullying by children at school along with the social stigma of visible skin rashes can cause social isolation adding to further stress. The onset or exacerbation of atopic dermatitis often follows stressful life events. A treatment plan often includes medicines (topical corticosteroids / topical tacrolimus, topical antibiotics oral antihistamines, etc.), skin care (regular and frequent moisturizer use), and lifestyle changes. Skin care and lifestyle changes can help prevent flare-ups. Severe emotional stress may exacerbate preexisting urticaria, a condition more commonly referred to as hives. Hives are red itchy swellings that can occur anywhere on the body. Due to the severity of itching and visibility of the rashes, patients feel embarrassed when the rashes crop up during important meetings and this can further lead to a state of depression. The dermatologist usually prescribes oral antihistamines and topical calamine-based lotions. Vitiligo: It is an autoimmune condition wherein in white patches develop on the skin. Stress and pre-existing thyroid disorder are common triggering events. Social stigma is very highly connected with vitiligo as patients get marriage proposal rejections and social isolation from friends and family alike. Such individuals are very depressed and have very low self-esteem. There are a host of treatment modalities available to stop further progression of the disease and also to get normal color back (topical and oral medicines, phototherapy, surgical skin grafting, etc.) Effects of stress on the hair: Graying of hair is very common due to the stressful lifestyle and nutrient-poor foods individuals consume these days, yet the exact cause remains unknown. Usually topical solutions and b-complex vitamins / biotin based tablets may be prescribed for the same. Telogen effluvium is a condition wherein a person sheds more than 100 hair per day (shedding 50-100 telogen hairs per day is considered normal). It occurs when an increased number of hair (i.e, more than one in ten) are in the telogen stage (shedding stage) of the hair growth cycle. This abrupt shift of anagen (growth phase) hair into telogen results in increased shedding several (approximately three) months later since that is the length of time hair stay in the telogen stage prior to falling out. Stress, childbirth or the cessation of oral contraceptives, surgery with general anaesthesia, severe systemic illness including fever, thyroid disease and inadequate nutrition (especially lack protein intake), ferritin and vitamin d3 deficiency, any and all of which may trigger the onset of hair fall. Along with hair fall, the hair starts getting thinned in such states. Treatment is dictated by its cause whenever known. Generally, a healthy protein powder, topical hair growth serums and minoxidil solution, oral multivitamin tablets (containing biotin and other supplements) and platelet-rich plasma therapy all play a vital role in hair fall reduction. Trichotillomania is a condition wherein a person pulls out his or her own hair with an obsessive-compulsion, which occurs as a result of stress, anxiety, depression, behavioural disorder, mental retardation and delusions. Children who engage in such hair pulling usually are ones that are neglected by parents or friends at school, those who undergo child abuse, have broken relationships etc. Behavior modification therapy along with medications may be prescribed by the treating dermatologist or psychiatrist. Stress is a very well known aggravating factor in a condition known as alopecia areata. In this condition, there are circular circumscribed patches of hair loss commonly on the scalp or beard areas. Sometimes hair regrowth may occur without any medicinal intervention. Dermatologists recommend medical therapy in the form of topical minoxidil solution, topical corticosteroids, hair growth serums, zinc based tablets and injectable corticosteroids all aid in hair regrowth.

Why A Mind & Body Sync Is Important For Your Health?

Why A Mind & Body Sync Is Important For Your Health?
So you love you job and don't mind working after-hours every once in a while. Are you plagued by hypertension, stomach disorder and sleeplessness often? It's probably about time that you started paying more attention to the dual functioning of your body and mind. Straining on one while neglecting the other will only bear dire consequences in the near future and render your body weak and your mind restless. The regulation of the mind-body dualism is the most integral aspect of your being. Your mind has the potential of affecting your health in more ways than one. Having a better outlook towards life helps deal with health issues such as depression, headaches, pain and stress. The dual functioning of mind and body is bound to have greater implications on your health and one needs to be well aware of the facet of it: YOUR MIND REFLECTS WHAT YOUR HEALTH HAS TO SAY The brain creates gamma globulin and endorphins which toughen your immunity and serve as natural painkillers, respectively. The production of these substances depends significantly on how you're feeling at the moment. Having a positive outlook even when you're down with fever, pain or stress enables your body to create better regulatory hormones which accelerate healing. On the other hand, if you're being too hard on yourself as a result of work overload, emotional crisis or any personal mishap, and adopt a negative perspective towards most things, your body will know and slow down its mechanism for creating endorphins and gamma globulin. This means you'll take longer to regain normalcy. WHAT YOU'RE DOING TO YOUR BODY AFFECTS HOW YOUR BRAIN WORKS On the flipside, if your body is under extreme pressure to perform and as a result you're missing out on your regular healthy regime, your mind is guaranteed to function differently. Eating differently, losing sleep, exercising less, and burn-outs will affect your mental well-being, mostly negatively. The fight-or-flight reaction and blood pressure levels are considerably influenced by how you're feeling and how you are dealing with things in life. As a result, you might feel depressed, moody, restless or sick. THERAPIES TO INCREASE THE MIND-BODY FUNCTIONING Practicing therapy and exercising to improve the dual functioning of your brain and body are therefore indispensible for keeping well. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) suggests some integrative measures that are sure to have a positive impact on your over-all well being: 1. Meditation 2. Cognitive-behavioral management 3. Yoga and relaxation 4. Proper diet and regular physical exercise 5. Active involvement in music, art or dance 6. Avoiding a sedentary lifestyle Despite everything else, if you're still willing to work beyond your deadline, at least don't forget to eat the salad that you had packed for lunch!

Animal Bites and Rabies

Animal Bites and Rabies
Animal Bites and Rabies What are the dangers of animal bites? Animal bites and scratches, even when they are minor, can become infected and spread bacteria to other parts of the body. Whether the bite is from a family pet or an animal in the wild, scratches and bites can carry disease. Cat scratches, even from a kitten, can carry "cat scratch disease," a bacterial infection. Other animals can transmit rabies and tetanus. Bites that break the skin are even more likely to become infected. What is the care for animal bites? For superficial bites from a familiar household pet that is immunized and in good health: Wash the wound with soap and water under pressure from a faucet for at least 5 minutes, but do not scrub, as this may bruise the tissue. Apply an antiseptic lotion or cream. Watch for signs of infection at the site, such as increased redness or pain, swelling, drainage, or if the person develops a fever. Call your healthcare provider right away if any of these symptoms happen. For deeper bites or puncture wounds from any animal, or for any bite from a strange animal: If the bite or scratch is bleeding, apply pressure to it with a clean bandage or towel to stop the bleeding. Wash the wound with soap and water under pressure from a faucet for at least 5 minutes. Do not scrub as this may bruise the tissue. Dry the wound and cover it with a sterile dressing. Do not use tape or butterfly bandages to close the wound as this could trap harmful bacteria in the wound. Call your healthcare provider for guidance in reporting the attack and to determine whether additional treatment, such as antibiotics, a tetanus booster, or rabies vaccine is needed. This is especially important for bites on the face, hands, or feet, or for bites that cause deeper puncture wounds of the skin. It is also important for all cat bites that have a high incidence of infection. If possible, locate the animal that inflicted the wound. Some animals need to be captured, confined, and observed for rabies. Do not try to capture the animal yourself. Contact the nearest animal warden or animal control office in your area. If the animal cannot be found or is a high-risk species (raccoon, skunk, or bat), or the animal attack was unprovoked, the victim may need a series of rabies shots and a dose of rabies immunoglobulin. Call your healthcare provider for any flu-like symptoms, such as a fever, headache, malaise, decreased appetite, or swollen glands following an animal bite. What is rabies? Rabies is a viral infection of certain warm-blooded animals and is caused by a virus in the Rhabdoviridae family. It attacks the nervous system and, once symptoms develop, is 100% fatal in animals, if left untreated. In North America, rabies happens primarily in skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, and bats. In some areas, these wild animals infect domestic cats, dogs, and livestock. In the U.S., cats are more likely than dogs to be rabid. Individual states maintain information about animals that may carry rabies. It is best to check for region-specific information if you are unsure about a specific animal and have been bitten. Travelers to developing countries, where vaccination of domestic animals is not routine, should talk with their healthcare provider about getting the rabies vaccine before traveling. How does rabies happen? The rabies virus enters the body through a cut or scratch, or through mucous membranes (such as the lining of the mouth and eyes), and travels to the central nervous system. Once the infection is established in the brain, the virus travels down the nerves from the brain and multiplies in different organs. The salivary glands are most important in the spread of rabies from one animal to another. When an infected animal bites another animal, the rabies virus is transmitted through the infected animal's saliva. Scratches by claws of rabid animals are also dangerous because these animals lick their claws. What are the symptoms of rabies? The incubation period in humans from the time of exposure to the onset of illness can range anywhere from 5 days to more than a year, although the average incubation period is about 2 months. The following are the most common symptoms of rabies. Symptoms may include: Rabies: Stage 1 Rabies: Stage 2 Initial period of vague symptoms, lasting 2 to 10 days Vague symptoms may include, fever, headache, malaise, decreased appetite, or vomiting Pain, itching, or numbness and tingling at the site of the wound People often develop difficulty in swallowing (sometimes referred to as "foaming at the mouth") due to the inability to swallow saliva. Even the sight of water may terrify the person. Some people become agitated and disoriented, while others become paralyzed Immediate death, or coma resulting in death from other complications, may result The symptoms of rabies may look like other conditions or medical problems. Always see your healthcare provider for a diagnosis. How is rabies diagnosed? In animals, the direct fluorescent antibody test (dFA) done on brain tissue is most often used to detect rabies. Within a few hours, diagnostic labs can determine whether an animal is rabid and provide this information to medical professionals. These results may save a person from undergoing treatment if the animal is not rabid. In humans, a number of tests are necessary to confirm or rule out rabies, as no single test can be used to rule out the disease with certainty. Tests are done on samples of serum, saliva, and spinal fluid. Skin biopsies may also be taken from the nape of the neck. What is the treatment for rabies? Unfortunately, there is no known, effective treatment for rabies once symptoms of the disease appear. However, there are effective vaccines that provide immunity to rabies when administered soon after an exposure. It may also be used for protection before an exposure happens, for people such as veterinarians and animal handlers. How can animal bites and rabies be prevented? Being safe around animals, even your own pets, can help reduce the risk of animal bites. Some general guidelines for avoiding animal bites and rabies include the following: Do not try to separate fighting animals. Avoid strange and sick animals. Leave animals alone when they are eating. Keep pets on a leash when out in public. Select family pets carefully. Never leave a young child alone with a pet. All domestic dogs and cats should be immunized against rabies and shots kept current. Do not approach or play with wild animals of any kind, and be aware that domestic animals may also be infected with the rabies virus. Supervise pets so they do not come into contact with wild animals. Call your local animal control agency to remove any stray animals. What would my healthcare provider need to know about an animal bite? If you or someone you know is bitten by an animal, remember these facts to report to your healthcare provider: Location of the incident Type of animal involved (domestic pet or wild animal) Type of exposure (cut, scratch, licking of open wound) Part of the body involved Number of exposures Whether or not the animal has been immunized against rabies Whether or not the animal is sick or well; if "sick," what symptoms were present in the animal Whether or not the animal is available for testing or quarantine

Travel Sickness - How Homeopathy Can Treat It?
What is motion sickness? Motion sickness (travel sickness, car sickness) is a general sense of not feeling well, nausea, vomiting, headache, and sweating that is caused by repeated motion. It develops when the inner ear, the eyes, and other areas of the body that detect motion send conflicting messages to the brain. Any type of transportation can cause motion sickness. Children are more susceptible to motion sickness than adults. About half of children between the ages of 4 and 10 experience dizziness and nausea when travelling by car, airplane or boat. Girls tend to be more susceptible than boys. What are the symptoms of motion sickness? The most common signs and symptoms of motion sickness include: Nausea Increased salivation Vomiting Pale skin Perspiration Dizziness Headache Homeopathy for Motion Sickness- In most cases treatment with homoeopathic drugs is, therefore, necessary and in some cases it is the only method of treatment as conventional treatment cannot offer a cure always. Merely treating Motion sickness on symptomatology basis has failed to give permanent relief. So a holistic approach considering the individualistic treatment to provide an improved understanding of the patient s situation and to make it easier and possible to avoid recurrences in the future has to be kept in mind in treating such diseases. In this context, the homoeopaths have some valid conclusions, regarding the holistic and individualistic approach to motion sickness. Homoeopathy takes the set of most distinct, individual symptoms into account, which are truly characteristic of the patient forming the basis of prescription which eventually leads to cure. It is hoped that useful information will be gained both on the entity of motion sickness, as well as the homoeopathic approach to its management. Travel sickness is enough to ruin a perfect get away, but thankfully homeopathic remedies prove to be very effective and are perfect to carry when travelling. Some of the common homeopathic remedies which can be used as companions when travelling are: Aconite: This is used when one faces excessive restlessness and fear along with high heat and an urge to cool down with cold drinks. Borax: Taken when symptoms arise due to a downward movement like during turbulence or sudden dipping of the plane. This sudden movement causes anxiety, fidgeting, distress and confusion. Also, helpful in people who are scared of the dip of the plane during landing. Cocculus: This can be taken when a person experiences symptoms of nausea, salivation, dizziness and wants to lie down in order to prevent vomiting. If the sight and smell of food makes a person unwell they can also take this medicine. Nux Vomica: This is used when a person feels nausea, syncope and a feeling of faintness along with being sensitive to even slight movements. In this the person is usually irritable. Other symptoms which are seen in this are constipation or indigestion and a splitting or severe headache. Petroleum: Used when person experiences nausea, headache, dizziness, cold sweat, vomiting, extreme hunger or eating disorder along with a feeling of being confused and angry. Usually this condition is worsened by nausea. Tabacum: This is indicated when people experience extreme motion sickness, to the extent of being pale and a saliva filled mouth. These people might suffer from the severest form of palpitations and nausea. Closing the eyes and breathing fresh and cold air helps to relieve the symptoms. These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines in motion sickness. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.
