Myth & Truth
My child is sucking her thumb, when she feels sleepy & hungry. How to control this. Some people told me that children sucking their thumb due to insecured feeling, is it true or not? --By Anitha Sudhakar
Children at the orphanages are more insecure than the children in their own homes; yet we do not find those children sucking their thumbs. We shall never buy others views at the cost of our own view point. Rather it is the mother's insecure feeling that the child does not care what you advise. My advise to you is just say to the child do not do this and worry not about it anymore. Just keep reminding the child not with worried and hard tone and look, but with a friendly gesture and gentle words. And over a period of time she will begin to understand and respect your concern. Keep saying and that is it. And stop worrying for nothing.

Latest Myth & Truth
Dear Dr Rahman, I am Sundar, Male 51 years, residing at Bangaliore. Ihappen to be a diabeticfor 13 years (poor control!) with a bit of BP and cholestrol. About 2 months back i had a viral infection with joints pain all over my body. The fever went away in a few days, but the joints pain continued. I was told by my GP that this would gradually go away in a few weeks/months. Took some ayurvedic supplements (suggested by the same allopath GP) Ten days later, the joints pain subsided, but my hands and feet became numb, with pricking pain. The GP attributed this to the viral infection and advised to take mecobalamin(B12) tablets/injection, and continued with more ayurvedic supplements.(Dhanavantri & Bruhat chintamani) Meanwhile i met a neurologist for a second assessment, and went through a 'motor nerve conduction test" and was diagnosed as: 1. predominantly motor polyneuroradiculopathy (mixed type) affecting lower and upper limb nerves 2. severe bilateral median neuropathy at the level of wrist consistent with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome The neurologist said this was mostly due to the viral infection, but could be because of poor diabetes control(fast:190, PP:300) also. he added that there was no cure, and that the body would have to heal on its own. My numbness and pain has not subsided, am now trying homeopathy for a week for a cure. would request your assessment and advice, shall be able to come to Chennai for a personal consultation Thanks and have a good day! cordially, Sundar Ramanujam --By Sundar Ramanujam
