Netherton syndrome is a rare inherited disorder of the nervous system that causes multiple symptoms including motor delays, balance problems, seizures, drooling and sleepiness. In general, people with this condition have a pale skin, floppy muscles, low-grade fever and low energy levels. They tend to gain weight easily and their eyesight and hearing are usually affected negatively. It usually runs in families.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Netherton syndrome is aimed at treating the basic pathology of the disease as well as preventing or reducing further complications. As the name suggests, Ayurvedic medicines are used for prevention and treating these symptoms. A combination of medicinal therapy and yoga or meditation can also help in coping with this condition.
One of the main symptoms is called ataxia. It describes a loss of coordination. The person may stand for hours without moving his eyes (motor delay). This can be very severe if it occurs in one eye.
The other main symptom is known as ataxia neurogenic. It describes problems caused by fluid buildup in the brain. Patients may experience partial paralysis or a complete loss of movement. This can happen because of fluid build-up in the cerebrospinal fluid. While the fluid buildup is usually due to trauma, it can also be caused by fluid that collects in the meninges or brain stem cavities.
While ataxia can be a debilitating condition, it usually does not cause any permanent damage. However, it may cause certain complications like seizures or even death. This happens when the fluid reaches the brain. Treatment for this depends on how far along the condition has progressed.
Another common problem is called sensorineural hearing loss. Dysfunction may result from damage to the inner ear or brain structures. This happens when the nerve that allows sensations to be sent to the brain gets damaged. While the symptoms of this may look like those of Nerve failure, they are actually very different.
One common treatment option is to increase fluid intake through drinking increased amounts of water or soup. Medications may also be prescribed to reduce the fluid buildup and relieve some of the pressure. Devices like CPAP machines may be used. Surgery may be an option if severe cases are present. However, most of these cases are only mild and do not need immediate medical attention.
While many causes of Netherton’s syndrome are still unclear, there are some things that are known. Some symptoms such as severe muscle pain and weakness, dizziness, fluid buildup in the brain, and ataxia (lack of coordination) have been identified. A doctor should be consulted if there are any concerns about a particular case of Nerve failure or another similar syndrome.
When fluid buildup occurs within the body, it can cause several symptoms. These include convulsions, loss of consciousness, fainting, wooziness, choking feeling, and numbness. Some people with Nerve failure may also feel muscle weakness, exhaustion, lack of balance, difficulty swallowing, and tingling in their hands and feet. While all of these symptoms can be frightening, they are not considered to be life threatening, and usually not life threatening or disabling.
The neurological symptoms of Nerve failure may cause some individuals to avoid a trip to the emergency room out of fear of having a serious condition develop. This is not entirely true, as even severe cases of Nerve failure can be successfully treated. As with any health condition, it is important to consult a physician or health care provider before traveling abroad to help prevent problems. It is important to know that symptoms of Nerve failure differ from person to person, and are often determined by factors such as: location of the nerve, age, gender, and whether a person has taken drugs previously.
There are a number of causes of neurological problems. Infectious disease, trauma, auto-immune disorders, strokes, meningitis, and cerebral palsy may result in symptoms similar to those of Nerve failure. Certain medications may also produce similar symptoms. Certain illnesses, such as tumors, may also have similar symptoms.
In order to diagnose Neurotonsil syndrome, doctors require certain information such as: age, sex, and location of birth. Blood tests may be required, including blood count, electrolytes, cholesterol, CT scan, MRI, and EKG. Treatment includes medications such as: acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, and beta-blockers. To prevent complications, it is advised that Nerve damage be avoided, especially with medications and physical activities. As with other health conditions, consulting a physician is recommended for more detailed information regarding Neurotonsil syndrome, its symptoms, and possible complications associated with it.
