Some people are just clumsier than others. However, if someone is not usually clumsy and now starts having trouble with hand movements, walking or other movements, a visit to the ...Read more

I have encephalitic parkinson since 2009, after initial 18 months there has been no improvement in my rigid limbs and tremors. Is there any treatment?

I have encephalitic parkinson since 2009, after initial 18 months there has been no improvement in my rigid limbs and tremors. Is there any treatment?

Yes: Some cases of Parkinsonism do not respond well to L-DOPA, so a different therapeutic approach is advised. Would suggest trial of Stalevo, (carbidopa and levodopa and entacapone) which contains entacapone, which may enhance the Sinemet effect, and you may be better off with a longer duration agonist such as Neupro patch. Would do active physical therapy, and maybe BOTOX, for the rigidity. Find movement disorder center at medical school ...Read more

Post-meningitic: TB affects multiple areas and can damage the nervous system by both direct damage and vasculitis of penetrating vessels from the meninges to the brain resulting in infarcts (killing of brain cells). This is not generally fully reversible and must be treated symptomatically. The only person who can determine what is necessary is the neurologist seeing her. Stick with them and be hopeful. ...Read more

My doctor told me that I have damaged the radial nerves in my arms and legs and it's beyond treatment. Unless I want to lose function of limbs. Help?

My doctor told me that I have damaged the radial nerves in my arms and legs and it's beyond treatment. Unless I want to lose function of limbs. Help?

In your legs?: You don't have any radial nerves in your legs, only your arms (and wrists). You have unfortunately completely left out any useful information whatsoever about what you mean by "damage," how you damaged your nerves, how this "damage" was diagnosed, and what "beyond treatment" means. If you want "help," you'll have ro repost. ...Read more

Where can I get a more holistic approach to severe pain in lower leg and foot? I had an episode of transverse myelitis in late 2005 which affected my lower extremities from waist down.After treatment & rehab, i regained use of my legs but continued to exp

Needless : Needless to say, i assume the cause of your transverse myelitis was investigated, and you don't have an underlying infection. That being said, have you tried acupuncture? Also, one of the hard lessons we have learned from pain management clinics is that the mistake we continue to make in trying to manage pain is we try one thing, when that doesn't work or isn't enough, we abandon that and try something else. When that isn't enough, we abandon that and then do something else. What we should be doing is add a different treatment modality to the first, and if that's not enough, add a third, and so on. It turns out that 2+2=5 when it comes to pain management, and it might take a combination of medication, physical therapy, tens treatment, acupuncture and perhaps a trigger point or spinal injection to get you to a point where you can live comfortably. I hope this advice helps you. Chronic pain is extremely difficult to live with. Good luck. ...Read more

For like two weeks now I have been feeling pains in my limbs coupled with back ache and neck pain. What could be the cause and what natural therapy?

Many things: There is not enough history to make a guess. Dehydration, viral illness, muscular overwork, connective tissue diseases like lupus, neurologic illness like fibromyalgia can all cause painful muscles. Curcumin and white willow extracts are pain relievers like ibuprofen. Using any without diagnosis is not the best approach. Talk to your health care provider. ...Read more

Stockings ok: You are female and 42 years old. You have bilateral leg swelling and your doctor notes venous incompetence. Stockings should be ok. First make sure you can have the correct fitting. Many patients can tolerate these if done correctly. Your doctor also may want to assess your cardiac function by echocardiography. Normal function is 75%. Be well. ...Read more
