Questions Answered By Dr. Gurneet Sawhney (291)

Female | 26

I’m a 26 year old female who is a diagnosed epileptic. I have been taking 200mg of lamotrigine since January. However I’m still having frequent seizures and cluster seizures so I’m looking to see if I could get an additional medication prescribed alongside the lamotrigine to support my symptoms and gain more control over my seizures.

Answered on 27th May '24

It’s important to tell a neurologist about those symptoms again. Sometimes taking another medicine such as levetiracetam or valproate can help to bring seizures under control. These drugs act in different ways to help lower the chances of having a seizure. Your doctor will be able to advise you better on what treatment plan will suit you most appropriately.

Here is my story, Doctor. So, two years ago, I suddenly felt immense pain in my foot and got bedridden for almost three months. And then I rushed to a physician because at the time there was no neurologist in my city. The physician tested my vitamins and gave me some vitamins. It eventually got better and I was able to walk. I was overweight at that time and my physician told me that it's all because of weight. And then I lost almost 20 kilograms, but there was still feeling of socks. I don't feel any pain or anything, but I just feel like I'm wearing socks. Then after almost two years, I visited a neurologist with this and she tested my vitamins. She prescribed me vitamin D supplements since my vitamin D is at 12, but for one month. Nothing happened with this one month treatment. Then she did my NCV. She said my NCV reports are normal and has prescribed me some vitamins again. What do you think, how much time it would take to get completely cured?

Answered on 23rd May '24

Based on what you have told me, the peripheral disorder mentioned by the speaker is on track with peripheral nerve disease. In most cases, the feeling of socks on your feet could be easily attributed to peripheral neuropathy. You are lucky that your neurologist has done so many tests and that your vitamins and nerves are under control. Please continue to take the vitamins as per the doctor's prescription and remain patient. You will need some time to see improvements in your nerves. Also, keeping a check on your weight and living a healthy life will speed up your recovery while doing well.

Last year, I got sick pretty bad. It started with migraine like headaches then intense body pain and severe back and neck pain. It was followed by fatigue, muscle stiffness and dizziness. No amount of painkillers relieved the pain. I couldn't even walk properly, someone had to hold me to get through hospitals. I got several tests done including MRI, EEG, B12, vitamin tests, eye tests, CBC and X ray for my back. There were a few vitamin deficiencies but they shouldn't have caused that much pain according to the doctors, MRI was pretty much normal. There were few abnormalities with my XRay in spine but again they were mild and not severe enough to cause me such intense pain. I took medication or migraine, some medication to make my nerves strong and I think some anxiety meds because they suspected GAD (all were prescribed by doctors). Most physicians suggested I go to a psychologist and the psychologist referred me back to physicians and I went back and forth. I got better after bed rest but I had to go back to college because I was missing on my studies. But I fell sick again, cramps like pain, consistent fever but on and off. I got tested for typhoid and other things but absolutely nothing. Then I went to a neuropsychiatrist who told me I had fibromyalgia, it aligned pretty well since I always had memory gaps as well and I've been concerned about it for a while. The medication he gave me worked, I for the first time in months started feeling better but as time passed by, it stopped working for me. I couldn't continue the medication due to expenses as well. So, I've been in pain ever since. When I've had a tiring day the pain is bad, when I am stressed it's worse. Every morning I wake up with pain and every night I go to bed in pain cuz it's worse in the mornings and night. If I rest too much, that's painful and if I don't that's painful too. Fever also shoots up every now and then. My body is in pain and exhausted, everything is difficult, walking up or down the stairs. Although some days it's better but other days it's difficult to even move, painkillers do absolutely nothing. I don't know what to do anymore

Answered on 23rd May '24

It could be fibromyalgia. This condition causes widespread pain in your body along with tenderness too – plus other things like being tired often or having trouble sleeping well. However, there are ways to handle this. For example, physical therapy might help ease some of the hurt; moderate activities such as walking or swimming could be beneficial because they won’t make the ache worse but can still keep muscles from getting too stiff; also relaxation methods (e.g., mindfulness meditation/deep breathing) may relieve stress which often worsens any existing discomfort. Besides that, proper rest is crucial, so try getting enough sleep each night; nutrition matters, so eat healthily; don’t push yourself too hard.

Before going to the hospital, gather all your dad's medical records. Write­ down notes about how he's bee­n doing lately. This information will help the doctors unde­rstand his situation and make a good treatment plan just for him.

I am diagnosed with distal muscular dystrophy with hand tremors . This problem was started about 3 years ago . what should i do

Answered on 23rd May '24

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is important. A physical therapist can offer strength and flexibility enhancing exercises that will help maintain the muscles, and provide adaptive devices to aid in performing daily activities.
Occupational Therapy: Hand tremors can be adjusted through occupational therapy allowing you to remain independent in daily tasks.
Medication and Medical Care: Another aspect is the importance of regular control by a neurologist or some kind of specialist in muscular disorders. They also suggest any drugs that can be used to enhance muscle strength and tremor control.
Lifestyle Modifications: Adjusting your home and work setting to fit you, and familiarity with ergonomic instruments can also be of great help alongside practicing relaxation methods.

Hello I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to discuss some ongoing health concerns that have persisted since I experienced cerebral meningitis a few years ago. Initially, the treatment process faced challenges, leading to subsequent neurological issues. Although most aspects of my health have improved, I continue to grapple with a specific matter related to urinary and bowel control. Following the meningitis treatment, I encountered difficulty using the restroom, leading to the use of a catheter for approximately three weeks. Subsequently, once the catheter was removed, I experienced challenges in retaining urine, necessitating the use of diapers, particularly during the night. Presently, after five years, while I have achieved some improvement in urinary control, there are instances, especially during the night, when I still face issues with involuntary urination. Additionally, I find it challenging to maintain control over bowel movements. There is a correlation between retaining urine and the urge to defecate, often resulting in occasional accidents. This situation has led to a degree of stress, particularly when venturing outside. I am reaching out to seek your expert advice on whether these issues may be treatable or if there are potential avenues for improvement. Your insights and recommendations regarding any further evaluations or treatments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your guidance on managing and addressing these persistent challenges. Sincerely,

Answered on 23rd May '24

You need to consult with a urologist or neurologist specialist for these disorders. They can assess your symptoms and whether further treatment is needed.

Dear Sir, Below i am sending my father MRI report, kindly guide me. MRI REPORT – BRAIN WITH CONTRAST TECHNIQUE: T1W Sagittal, DWI - b1000, ADC, GRE T2W FS Axial, MR Angiogram, FLAIR Axial & Coronal Post contrast images after administration of 5 ml of gadolinium contrast. OBSERVATION: The study reveals an intrasellar mass lesion, with enlargement of the right half of the anterior pituitary gland, extending to the suprasellar cistern. The mass lesion is predominantly isointense to gray matter on T1-weighted images. On T2-weighted images the mass is predominantly isointense to gray matter with internal areas of T2 hyperintensity suggestive of ?necrosis/cystic change. Dynamic postcontrast images revealed decreased/delayed enhancement of the mass lesion as compared to the rest of the pituitary gland. The mass lesion measures 1.2 AP x 1.6 TR x 1.6 SI cm. Superiorly the mass displaces the infundibulum to the left side. A clear CSF plane of cleavage is seen between the superior aspect of the mass lesion and the optic chasm. No significant parasellar extension of the mass lesion is seen. The cavernous segment of both internal carotid arteries show normal flow void. The mass causes mild thinning of the floor of the sella turcica, with slight bulge toward the roof of the sphenoid sinus. MR findings likely represent pituitary adenoma. Confluent and discrete areas of T2/flair hyperintensity are seen in bilateral supratentorial periventricular and subcortical deep white matter, likely representing nonspecific ischemic changes with a combination of leukoariosis, microvascular ischemic changes, lacunar infarcts and prominent perivascular spaces. Basal ganglia and thalami are normal. Midbrain, pons and medulla are normal in signal intensity. The cerebellum appears normal. Bilateral CP angle cisterns are normal. The ventricular system and subarachnoid spaces are normal. No significant midline shift is seen. The cranio-cervical junction is normal. Post-contrast images reveal no other abnormal enhancing pathology. Bilateral maxillary sinus polyps are noted.
