A resident of a residential block in Hyderabad in the south of India has suffered from severe headaches since the onset of the monsoon.
Her condition is now so bad she can’t go outside and cannot cook, she said.
“I was diagnosed with migraines a few weeks ago.
It’s been really difficult,” she told The Indian Express.
Her condition worsened last week, when she began to experience migrainys, severe headaches, and nausea, she added.
She began taking medication to treat her headaches, but she cannot go outside because she cannot cook or eat.
“I feel like I’m on the verge of a seizure,” she said, adding that she is currently bedridden in hospital.
“The doctors said we should keep taking the medication, but we are not able to,” she added, adding she is unable to get enough oxygen and that she can no longer stand.
Her family members have begun to organise a vigil to pray for her, but the local police have not taken any action against them.
The state of Uttar Pradesh has been in a state of emergency since February 2016 when an estimated 1.5 lakh people, including women, children and the elderly, died in communal clashes that followed the death of a 14-year-old girl.
The unrest, which lasted for nearly a year, led to a political crisis that led to the resignation of the then chief minister, Yogi Adityanath.
The government, which was led by Mr Adityam, has since been trying to quell the violence, but has faced opposition from religious and ethnic groups, including the Bharatiya Janata Party, the ruling Samajwadi Party and the Hindu nationalist Shiv Sena.
