Hello Suresh, If your father has suffered from a lacunar stroke, early treatment increases his chance of survival and may prevent further damage. Depending on how badly the underlying structures are damaged. Recovery varies for each person and depends on the severity of the stroke it can result in some brain damage. You should get him treated in hospitals from A-grade cities as they have updated technologies for all kinds of treatment and have some of the best specialists in the world.

Hello, You are having nerve root impingement which is responsible for your pain. Analgesics will give some relief for some time. Non-surgical treatment will not be of much help in the long run. Final remedy for your case will be keyhole surgery by a spinal surgeon. For further guidance kindly consult a good Neurologist. Hope our answer helps you.

Hello, According to the information given by you, we understand that your mother is either suffering from brain cancer or has metastasis in the brain. Since the medical history of your mother is limited we will try to give an answer to your query from the best understanding. Kindly consult an experienced oncologist. He/she may first review her entire case history. Later, certain diagnostic test like CT scan of the brain, MRI of the brain, if needed biopsy, certain blood test, study of cerebrospinal fluid will be done. Further, treatments vary widely depending on the cancer type, brain location, tumour size, patient age, and the patient's general health status. Mainly surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are the choice of treatment. Further, Immunotherapy may also be considered. Along with this medical line of treatment like steroids are given to relieve swelling. The patient has to be under strict supervision of health care provider. We suggest you consult an oncologist soon. Wish your mother a speedy recovery. Hope our answer helps you.

Numbness all over the body, weakness in hands and legs, coldness under the foot,etc. We went to the hospital to consult a Neurosurgeon. He took an MRI test and said this condition is cervical transverse myelitis. Doctors have given steroids and antibiotics for a week. Now my legs are fine but hands are not working properly, tightness of abdominal, shaking of hands, muscle weakness, my hand fingers are not working properly. Please guide me on what treatment should I take up?

Hello, Transverse myelitis is an inflammation on both sides of one section of the spinal cord (in your case it is cervical). This neurological disorder damages the insulating material of the nerve fibres which results in interruption of the nerve conduction system. Usually, recovery begins from two to twelve weeks of the first onset of symptoms and may continue up to two years. In case, if there is no improvement in symptoms within several months then the recovery is difficult. About one-third of these patients show partial or full recovery. However, take a second opinion from a neurologist. Don't lose hope. Regular treatment will be of help. Hope our answer helps you.
