Paralysis - Symptoms, Cause, Treatment

Paralysis 
Paralysis is a disease, it occurs due to loss of muscle function for one or more muscles group. When muscles have lost function or in other words we can say that when a muscle does not work properly, this condition is called Paralysis. Paralysis comes from Greak word. It made from two words Para and lyses. It can occur on one or both sides of your body. It can also occur in just one area, or it can be widespread. Paralysis is mainly often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. It’s caused by something being wrong with the nerves that activate muscles. Other major causes are stroke, trauma withnerve injury, poliomyelitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), botulism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and Guillain-Barr√© syndrome. Temporary paralysis occurs during REM sleep, and dysregulation of this system can lead to episodes of waking paralysis. Drugs that interfere with nerve function, such as curare, can also cause paralysis. There are many known causes for paralysis and perhaps more yet to be discovered.

Symptoms of Paralysis
The symptoms of paralysis will depends on different factors such as cause of paralysis, which parts of the body are affected, which parts of the body are not working properly. Paralysis can affect the legs, arms and legs,upper part of the body,lower part of body,right and left side of the body etc. It can present on the right side or the left side of the body, or it may present unilaterally. When paralysis is caused by damage to the brain, speech, behavior, and cognitive ability can also be affected.

Types of Paralysis
Hemiplegia:- When only one side of the body is affected, the condition is known as Hemiplegia. It is total paralysis of the arm, leg, and trunk on the same side of the body.
Diplegia:- Both sides of the body may suffer the effects, leading to diplegia or bilateral hemiplegia.
Paraplegia:- When only the lower limbs are affected by paralysis, is called paraplegia.
Quadriplegia:- When all four limbs are affected, it is called Quadriplegia.

Effects of Paralysis
• Interruption of the normal working of the tissues, glands, and organs
• Constipation
• Hammering of control of urination
• Sexual difficulties
• Abnormal sweating
• Abnormal breathing or heart rate
• Balance problems
• Difficulty thinking

Kidney Stone - Causes, Symptoms, Types


A kidney stone is known as a renal calculus. Kidney stones are common disease, often occur in premature infants. Kidney stone is a solid mass made up of small crystals.  At the same time there is one or more stones can be found in the kidney or ureter.

Signs and Symptoms 
The hallmark of stones that obstruct the ureter or renal pelvis is excruciating intermittent pain that radiates from the flank to the groin or to the genital area and inner thighThis particular type of pain, known as renal colic, is often described as one of the strongest pain sensations known. Renal colic caused by kidney stones is commonly accompanied by urinary urgency, restlessness, blood in the urine, sweating, nausea and vomiting. It typically comes in waves lasting 20 – 60 minutes caused by peristaltic contractions of the ureter as it attempts to expel the stoneThe embryological link between the urinary tract, the genital system and the gastrointestinal tract is the basis of the radiation of pain to the gonads, as well as the nausea and vomiting that are also common in urolithiasis Postrenal azotemia and hydronephrosis can be observed following the obstruction of urine flow through one or both ureters

There are dissimilar types of kidney stones. Cause of Kidney stones depends on the type of stone.

Cystine stones:  It  can form in people who have cystinuria. This disorder runs in families and affects both men and women. Cystinuria is a condition passed down through families in which stones form in the kidney, ureter, and bladder. Symptoms: Blood in the urine; Flank pain or pain in the side or back usually on one side.

Struvite stones: They are mostly found in women who have a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow very large and can block the kidney, ureter, or bladder. Struvite urinary stones and crystals form readily in the urine of animals and humans that are infected with ammonia-producing organisms. They are potentiated by alkaline urine and high magnesium excretion. They also are potentiated by a specific urinary protein, in domestic cats.

Calcium stones: Calcium is single component of the most common type of human kidney stones, calcium oxalate. Some studies suggest that people who take supplemental calcium have a higher risk of developing kidney stones, and these findings have been used as the basis for setting the recommended daily intake (RDI) for calcium in adults. They are more common in men between ages 20-30. Calcium can combine with other substances, such as oxalate phosphate, or carbonate to form the stone. Oxalate is present in certain foods such as spinach. It is also found in vitamin C supplements. Diseases of the small intestine increase your risk of these stones.
.
Symptoms of Kidney Stone:
You may not have symptoms until the stones move down the tubes through which urine empties into your bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys.
·  Blood in the urine, Fever,  vomiting , Abnormal urine color
·  The main symptom is severe pain that starts suddenly and may go away suddenly:
·  Pain may be felt in the belly area or side of the back
·  Pain may move to groin area or testicles

Bone cancer

Cancers are founded in bones are called Bone cancers. It can be discovered in bones in a number of different circumstances. When cancer is located in the bones, it is important to identify whether this cancer has spread from another site to the bones or whether the cancer originated in the bone tissue itself. This distinction is important not only for the sake of correct terminology, but also to accurately determine which treatment options are appropriate.

We know that there are more than 100 types of cancer, and each cancer type is named for the tissue in which it begins. When cancer cells spread, they may travel via the lymphatic channels to lymph nodes, or they may enter the bloodstream and travel to other organs or locations in the body that are distant from the site of the original, or primary, tumor. It is not unusual for cancers that originate in other parts of the body to spread to the bones and begin growing there.

Certain types of cancers are particularly likely to spread to the bones. Cancers that commonly metastasize, or spread, to the bones include breast cancer, lung cancer, thyroid cancer, prostate cancer, and cancers of the kidney. It is important to note that when these other types of cancer spread to the bone, but they are named by the tissue or organ where they arose. Breast cancer spread due to bone but it is called Breast cancer not bone cancer.

In contrast to cancers which have spread to the bone, true bone cancers are tumors that arise from the tissues of the bones. These cancers, called primary bone cancers, are quite rare in comparison to cancers that have spread to the bones.  The bone cancer affects over two thousand people in the United States every year. It is found most in the bones of the arms and legs, but it can occur in any bone. Children and young people are more likely than adults to develop bone cancer.

Symptoms of Bone Cancer
1. It tend to develop slowly

2. It is depend on the type, location, and size of the tumor.

3. Pain is the most frequent symptom of bone cancer, but sometimes a lump on the bone can be felt through the skin.

Treatment of Bone Cancer:
The  treatment of bone cancer depend upon the size, location, stage of the cancer, age and health conditions of the patient. The treatment for bone cancer includes various methods such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and cryosurgery.
 
Radiation Therapy: It involves the usage of high energy X-rays to destroy the cancerous cells. This treatment option may be used along with surgery.

Cryosurgery: This is a type of treatment which involves usage of liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy cancerous cells.

Surgery: it is the one of the most common method of treatment for bone cancer. This surgery is performed in order to remove the entire tumour inside the bone with negative margins. The surgeon aims at removing the tumour with minimizing the removal of the healthy tissues.

Cause of Bone Cancer: While bone cancer does not have a clearly defined cause, researchers have identified several factors that increase the possibility of developing these tumors. A small number of bone cancers are due to heredity.

Arthritis - Symptoms,Cause, Treatment


What is Arthritis?

The word arthritis comes from the Greek word called Greekarthron.  It maens  "joint"  Arthritis affects the musculoskeletal system, specifically the joints. It is the main cause of disability among people over fifty-five years of age in industrialized countries. 

Arthritis is a type of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form, Osteoarthritis is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection.

The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is joint pain. Pain is often a constant and may be localized to the joint affected. The pain from arthritis occurs due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of joint, muscle strains caused by forceful movements against stiff, painful joints and fatigue.

Symptoms

The common symptoms of arthritis disorders include varied levels of pain, swelling, joint stiffness and sometimes a constant ache around the joint. Arthritic disorders like lupus and rheumatoid can also affect other organs in the body with a variety of symptoms.

  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of flexibility
  • Decreased aerobic fitness
  • Inability to use the hand or walk
  • Malaise and a feeling of tiredness
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Poor sleep
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Tenderness
  •  Difficulty moving the joint

Causes

Cartilage is breakdown due to Arthritis. Cartilage usually protects a joint, allowing it to move smoothly. Cartilage also absorbs shock when pressure is placed on the joint, such as when you walk. Without the normal amount of cartilage, the bones rub together, causing pain, swelling (inflammation), and stiffness.
Joint inflammation may result from:
·                                 An autoimmune disease (the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue)
·                                 Broken bone
·                                 General "wear and tear" on joints
·                                 Infection, usually by bacteria or virus



Types of arthritis
There are more than 100 different forms of arthritis

  1. Rheumatoid arthritis - this is an inflammatory form of arthritis. The synovial membrane is attacked, resulting in swelling and pain. If left untreated the arthritis can lead to deformity. Rheumatoid arthritis is significantly more common in women than men and generally strikes when the patient is aged between 40 and 60. However, children and much older people may also be affected.
  2. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis - It means arthritis that affects a person aged above15 or less. JRA can be various forms of arthritis; it basically means that a child has it.

  1. Infectious Arthritis - It is an infection in the synovial fluid and tissues of a joint. It is typically caused by bacteria, but could also be caused by fungi or viruses. Bacteria, fungi or viruses may spread through the bloodstream from infected tissue nearby, and infect a joint. Most susceptible people are those who already have some form of arthritis and develop an infection that travels in the bloodstream.

  1. Osteoarthritis - Osteoarthritis cartilage loses its elasticity. If the cartilage is stiff it becomes damaged more easily. It acts as a shock absorber, will gradually wear away in some areas. When cartilage becomes damaged tendons and ligaments become stretched, causing pain. Finally the bones may rub against each other causing very severe pain.

  1. Ankylosing spondylitis
  2. Gonococcal arthritis
  3. Gout
  4. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (in children)
  5. Other bacterial infections (nongonococcal bacterial arthritis)
  6. Psoriatic arthritis
  7. Reactive arthritis (Reiter syndrome)
  8. Rheumatoid arthritis (in adults)
  9. Scleroderma
  10. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)

Disability

Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the USA. More than 20 million individuals with arthritis have severe limitations in function on a daily basis. Absenteeism and frequent visits to the physician are common in individuals who have arthritis. Arthritis makes it very difficult for individuals to be physically active and many become home bound. Each year, arthritis results in approx one million hospitalizations and close to 45 million outpatient visits to health care centers

Arthritis can make it very difficult for the individual to remain physically active, contributing to an increased risk of obesity, high cholesterol or have heart disease. Individuals with arthritis are also at increased risk of depression which may be related to fear of worsening symptoms.
Diagnosis

Treatment

There is no cure for either rheumatoid or osteoarthritis. Treatment options vary depending on the type of arthritis and include physical therapy, lifestyle changes (including exercise and weight control), orthopedic bracing and medications. Joint replacement surgery may be required in eroding forms of arthritis. Medications can help reduce inflammation in the joint which decreases pain. Moreover, by decreasing inflammation, the joint damage may be slowed.

Physical Therapy

In common, studies have shown that physical exercise of the affected joint can have noticeable improvement in terms of long-term pain relief. Furthermore, exercise of the arthritic joint is encouraged to maintain the health of the particular joint and the overall body of the person.

Individuals with arthritis can benefit from both physical and occupational therapy. In arthritis the joints become stiff and the range of movement can be limited. Physical therapy has been shown to significantly improve function, decrease pain, and delay need for surgical intervention in advanced cases. Exercise prescribed by a physical therapist has been shown to be more effective than medications in treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Exercise often focuses on improving muscle strength, endurance and flexibility. In some cases, exercises may be designed to train balance. Occupational therapy can teach you how to reduce stress on your joint from daily living activities. Occupation therapy can also teach you how to modify your home and work environment so that you do reduce movements that may worsen your arthritis. There are also assist devices available that can help you drive, getting a bath, dressing and also in housekeeping labors.

Medications

Treatment typically begins with medications that have the fewest side effects with further medications being added if insufficiently effective. Treatment depends on the type of the arthritis. The first-line treatment for osteoarthritis is acetaminophen while for inflammatory arthritis it involves non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen.

Human Heart - Function

The heart is located inside the human body.  It is one of the most important organs in the entire human body. The heart is a myogenic muscular organ found in all animals with a circulatory system (including all vertebrates), that is responsible for pumping blood throughout the blood vessels by repeated, rhythmic contractions. The heart pumps the blood, which carries all the vital materials which help our bodies function and removes the waste products that we do not need. For example, the brain requires oxygen and glucose, which, if not received continuously, will cause it to lose consciousness. Normal human beings are beating approximately 72 times per minute of our lives.

Hearts is protected by cavity. There are three layers made the wall of the heart.  The cavity is divided into four chambers. Upper chambers are called the right and left atria, and lower chambers are called the right and left ventricles.


Human Heart

1. Left Atrium: The left atrium is one of the four chambers in the human heart. It
receives oxygenated blood from the pulmonary veins, and pumps it into
the left ventricle, via the mitral valve. 


2. Right atrium: The Right atrium  is one of four zin the hearts of mammals (including humans) and archosaurs (which include birds and crocodilians). It receives
deoxygenated blood from the superior and inferior vena cava and the
coronary sinus, and pumps it into the right ventricle through the tricuspid valve. Attached to the right atrium is the right auricular appendix.


3. Left ventricle: The left ventricle is one of four chambers (two atria and two ventricles) in the human heart. It receives oxygenated blood from the left atrium via the mitral valve, and pumps it into the aorta via the aortic valve.

4. Right ventricle: The right ventricle is fourth chambers in the human heart. It receives deoxygenated blood from the right atrium via the tricuspid valve, and pumps it into the pulmonary artery via the pulmonary valve and pulmonary trunk.  It is triangular in shape, and extends from the right atrium to near the apex of the heart. 

Function of Heart:

In mammals, the function of the right side of the heart (see right heart) is to collect de-oxygenated blood, in the right atrium, from the body (via superior and inferior vena cavae) and pump it, through the tricuspid valve, via the right ventricle, into the lungs (pulmonary circulation) so that carbon dioxide can be dropped off and oxygen picked up (gas exchange). This happens through the passive process of diffusion. The left side (see left heart) collects oxygenated blood from the lungs into the left atrium. From the left atrium the blood moves to the left ventricle, through the bicuspid valve, which pumps it out to the body (via the aorta). On both sides, the lower ventricles are thicker and stronger than the upper atria. The muscle wall surrounding the left ventricle is thicker than the wall surrounding the right ventricle due to the higher force needed to pump the blood through the systemic circulation.
