Laminectomy is a surgery to remove the vertebral bone (lamina). When the surgeon cuts the ligamentum flavum the point of compression becomes visible and any bone spur found are removed to enlarge the spinal canal as well as the foramina. The patient may be asked to lie down and lift his leg without bending the knees to check for nerve root disorders.

Brain stroke

There was extreme unbearable headache(dr say its brain stroke) after every 2hr. Doctor gave medicine (dolonex, stat ) by which stokes were reduced within a week. Now no stoke has occured for month, but there is continuous mild to low headache every time. Headache increases with talking, noise(sound). Much weakness is felt all day and sleeplessness at night. Headache is such that it pains even when head is touched or say while she comb hairs. [-No MRI or CT scan done yetas doctor told us that tests are not needed. -She was diagnosed Dengu positive just a 2 week before strokes & was not yet cured fully. -She also had migraine problem few year back. -Her BP always remains at lower end. - She was under stress and tension just before strokes occurred ] Doctor says it is migrain & will be OK, just take medicine, But continuous headache is there for over 1 month! Plz guide what this condition is ? Are we taking right medicine(as written in MEDICATION field) or should we change doctor?

Dream of paralysis

So just today I had this dream. I was just slept for about 20 mins. When this dream came. But Iam sure i was in sleep. I felt that iam sitting on my bed and suddenly my mind went blank and could not move my any body part just feeling some vibrations all over. Even I couldnt speak, but i was trying to call my roomie to call ambulance but couldnt. My mouth wasnt opening. This was occurring for every 10 seconds all in a dream. But i think as my brain started to realise that it is just a dream when I tried to move a finger it was moving... After dat about five minutes I think I woke up normally but i was so scared. i had this type of dream once before. Sir please tell is it just a dream or a thing to worry about and i should get myself checked?
