Is it true that we only use 10 percent of our brains?

Nope! Humans use their whole brains for a wide variety of functions. It’s unclear where this myth started, but it’s been proven false by numerous brain scans showing that the brain is in near-constant complete use.

It is true, however, that only 10 percent of the cells in the brain are neurons; the other 90 percent are support cells called glial cells, but it’s not entirely clear what those are for. It’s also true that there are particular moments where you might only be using 10 percent of your brain, like if you’re sitting still and just daydreaming. But the idea that there’s 90 percent more intelligence tucked away in your grey matter somewhere, and if you could unlock it somehow you’d be the next Einstein—that’s a total myth.

Can a neurologist help children with ADHD?

ADHD is most commonly, due to an deficiency in dopaminergic activity in the prefrontal cortex, which leads to more impulsivity, difficulty staying still (inhibiting movement), and diffculty maintaining focus or concentrating.

The most common reason for this is due to mutations (variations) in the dopamine receptor genes, which lead to reduced binding affinities for dopamine (dopamine can't bind as well to the existing dopamine receptors, leading to reduced dopaminergic activity in the brain).

That is why dopaminergic stimulants are most often used to treat ADHD, as it is a neurochemical disorder.

As such, a neurologist or psychiatrist can administer medication or help with alternative therapies to help treat the disorder.

What is Bell's Palsy?

Bell's palsy is a paralysis of cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve) resulting in inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. Several conditions can cause a facial paralysis, e.g., brain tumor, stroke, and Lyme disease. However, if no specific cause can be identified, the condition is known as Bell's palsy. Named after Scottish anatomist Charles Bell, who first described it, Bell's palsy is the most common acute mononeuropathy (disease involving only one nerve) and is the most common cause of acute facial nerve paralysis. Bell's palsy is defined as an idiopathic unilateral facial nerve paralysis, usually self-limiting. The trademark is rapid onset of partial or complete palsy, usually in a single day. It is thought that an inflammatory condition leads to swelling of the facial nerve. The nerve travels through the skull in a narrow bone canal beneath the ear. Nerve swelling and compression in the narrow bone canal are thought to lead to nerve inhibition, damage or death. No readily identifiable cause for Bell's palsy has been found. Doctors may prescribe anti-inflammatory and anti-viral drugs. Early treatment is necessary for the drug therapy to have effect. The effect of treatment is still controversial. Most people recover spontaneously and achieve near-normal to normal functions. Many show signs of improvement as early as 10 days after the onset, even without treatment. Often the eye in the affected side cannot be closed. The eye must be protected from drying up, or the cornea may be permanently damaged resulting in impaired vision. In some cases denture wearers experience some discomfort.

Is there a cure for Bells Palsy?

Bell's palsy is most often a temporary condition when inflammation puts pressure on cranial nerve number 7. It is usually from a viral infection and resolves itself after a few weeks or months. Rarely, is it permanent, and massage may be helpful to keep the facial muscles in good tone for when they regain function.

=== === If someone has Bell's palsy they might benefit from a few acupuncture treatments as well, depending on the cause. Or, it might just resolve itself on it's own.

What is Bells Palsy and what is the recovery period?

Bells Palsy is a weakness or paralysisBells Palsy is a weakness or paralysis affecting the muscles on one side of the face due to inflammation or trauma of the facial nerve. It displays a number of symptoms such as an inability to blink or close the eye and total paralysis on the side affected.

Recovery is based on the individual. Mine started to come back within a month but still hasn't 100 percent come back yet. It has been 5 months now.

I wrote an article that discusses my symptoms and treatments used etc.

Answer 2

Bell's palsy is when the 7th cranial nerve behind the ear on either side or both becomes swollen. mine began with twitching and slight pain to full blown palsy. right side droopy but not numb. I use chiropractic technique, B-complex vitamins that help the nerve heal faster, an old folklore herbal cream topically to relax the nerve, which is the same I used for my sciatica pain and it helps. anti viral drugs just make you sicker and it doesn't speed the process because it's the nerve. As with any nerve (i.e. root canal) if you ever had this issue, you know nothing helps the pain. It's been two weeks and my face is showing small signs of movement and my speech is improving day by day. My right side hemisphere hurts like bruising as it is healing itself and repairing the nerve. stinging, twitches are all part of healing process, be patient, relax and reduce stress. Stress is what brought mine on. Have an MRI to rule out stroke if you have any history of heart condition, but the b-complex will help. Make sure you check with your doctor before trying anything new on your body and to rule out drug interactions with any prescriptions you might be taking, be cautious its your body. Eat right and remember everyone's body reacts and recovers differently. don't stress on it, you will recover.

How often can a pilondal cyst reoccur?

As often as it gets obstructed with dead hair, skin sheddings and bacteria. It can be affected by job patterns, eg. prolonged driving, motorbike riding, excessive sweating etc. The best way of preventing a recurrence is to have the cyst surgically excised. This completely opens the area and the wound is packed with gauze so it heals from the inside out. It is important to know if the cyst was already operated. If the answer is yes, it can also reoccur. Depending on the technique used, recurrence rates vary between: 11 to 29%. there are different techniques for re-surgery for pilonidal cyst that reoccur Search a colorectal surgeon or coloproctologist in your area. good luck!
