I am facing high level of stress due to personal and professional reasons. Will running or walking help reduce stress for me.

Hello Friend, Good that you are seeking a help here. Appreciate your interest to get into a solution to overcome your stress. While physical excersise is good as stress relief, it's always better to understand the root cause behind the trigger for your stree and take a holistic plan. Ex. When you go through stress, there will be excess secretions of adrenal hormones in the body. In such times, you need to perform calm down activities like breathing exercises instead of heavy exercises like running. Also managing emotions or thoughts also helps to avoid the stress trigger. Feel free to reach out to me online or through Lybrate for a holistic assessment of your both physical and mental symptoms or conditions to recommend suitable stress management plan that includes solution like few lifestyle changes, self therapies, dietary changes, daily routines, excersise etc. Be positive. You will be alright soon.

I am a marijuana smoker. How to leave this? Because when I smoke my heart beat going very fast, and I feel weakness.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Joy, Happy to know that you are trying to leave marijuana smoking. Heart beating fast and weakness are the effects of marijuana. Usually there is no withdrawal symptoms of marijuana.So if you decide you can leave it without any bad effects On the other hand you may feel strong and your heart may not beat fast. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like weed parties, smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud..

Hello Doctors, just wanted to explain my Stress and Anxiety problem. I am really in a stress or rather depression which I can say. I for the past 2 months started to think that I am not well and react to even a small boil that comes on my body that makes me think I am with a STD or some major organ failure etc. I only have sex with my wife and not anyone else. BOTH ARE LOYAL TO EACH other SO I DO not HAVE TO SUSPECT HER. But this stress or thinking module made me get a TMJ problem and I am having a pop noise every time I take a hard bite or sometimes my jaw feels like it's getting locked. So I am using a night TMJ mouth appliances. Now for the past 3 days I suddenly developed pain in my left axillary part. Not sure what I did and got that pain and a slight swelling, its makes me get too worried. I tried to see if there is any boils or lump but found nothing. Is it anything serious. The pain is in the left armpit and moves slightly in front (not very much, just upto the end of my armpit hair distance I can say). What can it be and is it something I need to worry about. I seen a Ortho today but he seems to not check that part but just said it could be a strain and gave me an injection with some muscle relaxing tabs. Why am I getting so worried that something wrong is going to happen to me and my stress/anxiety level is high I suppose. Please suggest me what to do. I am also planning to join a fitness centre to reduce my weight from being 150Kgs. Thank you in advance. Will contact if any future ref needed in person.

Hello Doctors, just wanted to explain my Stress and Anxiety problem. I am really in a stress or rather depression whi...
Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. 150 kgs at the age of 27 is too much. You have to bring it down. Regarding the pain, you have nothing to worry. As your ortho said, it could just be muscle cramp. Your problem is health anxiety. Health anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Pls tell me what are the techniques to reduce stammering in speech therapy? I want to remove stammering.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

My brother in law is an alcoholic. On holidays he consumes alcohol morning as well as evening and takes in huge quantities. After drinking he creates problems in the house. Any amount of advice only fall on deaf ears as he is not willing to listen any one. That only increases his consumption. I want to know any safe medicine that can be administered along with food without patients knowledge that can create a dirt of aversion towards alcohol. Presently his health is good outwardly.

You will definitely need medical assistance to get rid of the habit. Trying to wean it out slowly does not help and in the long term may not be productive. You might consult a deaddiction centre - where under medical supervision you can undergo a detoxification program as well as Behavior counselling. Detoxification programmes help a person who is dependent on alcohol to cease use in a way that minimizes the symptoms of withdrawal and the risk of complications, sometimes using a prescribed medication. Counselling and psychotherapy form integral parts of most forms of treatment. They aim at initiating and maintaining behavioural and lifestyle changes, and help to control urges to use alcohol. It uses a variety of methodologies and techniques, including motivational interventions, cognitive-behavioral approaches (social skills training, stress management, anger management), relapse prevention, provision of incentives, community reinforcement therapies I hope this helps.

Bipolar Disorder: Symptoms, Diagnosis And Treatment

Bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression. This usually sets in low and high moods in a person along with changes in energy and sleep.

People with bipolar disorder tend to have periodical changes; sometimes they are over happy and other times they might feel sad, depressed and hopeless. Between these changes they are normal. The highs and lows are considered as extreme poles of moods, thus the name bipolar disorder.

Manic term is used when a person with bipolar disorder is highly excited and feels confident. Also, feelings of irritability and recklessness along with irrationality might occur. Some people with mania might have a hallucinations that is they see and hear things that are not there, along with delusions.

The term hypomania is used to describe mild symptoms of mania, in which a person does not have hallucinations and delusions and the symptoms do not interfere with their daily life. Similarly, the term depressive is used to describe a person's time when they feel depressed or sad.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

  • The highs and lows in a bipolar disorder do not follow any set pattern. One might feel manic or depressed for hours or days or weeks, months and even years together, before they actually switch to a happy mood. The severity depends from person to person and also changes with time by becoming less or more severe.
  • Symptoms of mania or the high are extreme excitement, change from being happy to angry and irritable along with restlessness, speech is rapid with low concentration, less sleep and increased energy, grand plans, alcohol and drug abuse and impulsiveness.
  • Symptoms of low or depressive phase are lethargy, worthlessness, feeling of sadness and hopelessness, lowered concentration, irritability, loss of sleep or excessive sleeping, loss of appetite and suicidal tendencies.

Diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder

  • In case someone exhibits symptoms of bipolar disorder, then talking to a psychiatrist or a doctor helps. Doctors ask questions related to the mental illness and the associated concerns. Diagnosis is basically recognizing the symptoms of the person, whether they are due to some underlying cause or mood swings because of excessive alcohol. The symptoms have to be noted and the duration, for which they last along with the severity should all be noted. The most obvious symptoms are that of lows and highs in mood and changes in behavior, energy, sleep and thoughts.
  • Consulting a doctor or talking to family and friends helps to differentiate the symptoms of bipolar disorder from unipolar disorder.

I am loosing memory. I keep forgetting things. Study I do, last a day only. Next day I find I am blank. Pls suggest which could be effective in regaining my Memory power.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Lalalajpat is my aunty she has a disease called schizophrenia. Can anyone suggest me any suggestions for curing her and are there any chances of getting my aunt to normal conditions? Please help.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness, but can be treated very well with effective new medications. The treatment is like diabetes or hypertension, i. E. Is for long term. The symptoms will gradually disappear and it might take nearly 2-6 months for significant improvement. Also if the illness has been treated irregularly, or in certain sub-types of schizophrenia or resistant symptoms, only improvement can be shown rather than complete recovery. Schizophrenia is not a single disease but a syndrome with variety of presentation, so the treatment is done by psychiatrist after understanding these.

Depression - How To Deal With It?

PhD - Psychology, LLB, DM - Child And Adolescent Psychiatry
Psychologist, Chennai
Depression - How To Deal With It?

Depression is such an ailment that may be intensely distressing and may lead to severe damage to the afflicted person and their close ones, if left without proper care and treatment. So if you are in charge of caring for patients affected with chronic depression, then it may seem challenging as well as equally rewarding. You will feel challenged when you're trying to figure out a possible solution to help the patient. Each patient is a distinct individual with varying needs contrary to the patients affected with diabetes or cardiac disorders where the treatments are properly schemed and structured.

Caring for yourself is also important-

When you are trying to deal with patients affected with depression, you will first have to properly recognize depression and anxiety. When someone you love is affected with depression, you will try your level best to help that person come out of the situation. However, note that it is also important to take care of your own mental as well as physical health. Because when you are trying to help a person come out of depression, it is likely that you too would face similar psychological distress. A recent study reported that caregivers of depressed people with bipolar disorder and severe depressive problems were more susceptible to psychological troubles than care providers of other healthcare needs like diabetes or cancer among general population. So it is really imperative to look after yourself as well.

Sticking to a well-regulated treatment plan-

Though social support is significant, it alone cannot help in suppressing depression. If you know a person encountering pangs of depression, advise him or her to seek professional assistance. Depression is such a clinical condition that requires to be dealt with medication, therapy or a balanced combination of both. You will have to make them understand that you care about them, but you alone cannot succeed in healing that person without proper medical guidance. Encourage such people to closely follow a physician’s advice and take proper medicines as recommended by the healthcare provider.

Insisting on following healthy habits-

You will have to try to encourage the patients in regulating their energies into doing something positive for both mind and body. This can be aptly done through exercise, which helps in lowering the risk of anxiety as well as depression with regular practice. This, along with the intake of a healthy balanced diet would also help them to recover faster.

While doing your bit to aid a person come out of depression, you should also take him or her to a responsive psychologist who can recommend faster methods of getting rid of depression permanently.
