Hi there is no link in the dreams you are dreaming. Whenever you think strongly about something then that day or after one or two days the same thing appears in your dream. Do not waste your time in analysing your dream.

Dear lybrate-user. Homosex is not a crime. If you are having pleasure in that area you may continue it. This habit will not be transferred to your son or daughter, don't worry. I also suggest you to try straight sex because society needs you to do that. Don't be worried or anxious about your homesex attitude. Enjoy it. Take care.

Dear Sanjay, BIpolar and Clinical depression or depressive disorder are neurochemical disorders. These are usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Some drugs do cause low libido. To regain your libido, you need to taper off the drugs. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise, counseling and therapy. Take care.

What is fear of child birth called. I too much fear the process of child birth. Lady doctors call me pschyo. Is there any way to deliver without experiencing cuts and stitches.

The fear of childbirth is natural as natural labour is really a painful process bu almost all ladies bear it happily. Having too much fear is really abnormal and so it is correct to call psycho (though for humour only). But ladies have to bear pain many times in their life time so, they should not be fearful of them but face them bravely. You can boost up your courage and tolerance to pain. You do lot of pelvic floor exercises and also increase your general physical activity and stamina. Your delivery will be fast and event-free. Now a days you may also go for painless vaginal delivery with subdural obstetrical analgesia in a good maternity centre. I shall never advise you for caeserian section just to avoid pain as it involves short term as well as long term implications.

Tips To Manage Anxiety!

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Tips To Manage Anxiety!

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I don't know whether it's psychological or not but sometimes I feel that I am not able understand what's written or sometimes being spoken, especially in pressure situations such as exams, interviews etc. I get afraid of doing anything thinking that I would not be able to understand. I feel like sometimes there is no communication between the brain and body and I feel blank. For example like when I am reading a question the answer will click in my mind but it will just vanish as if I didn't read the question. It takes time for me to understand things correctly. I don't know that whether this is happening due to over thinking or is there actually some problem with me.

Do not over think. Come out of your shell and enjoy some good time with friends. Do take good care of your health by following good discipline. You can overcome your problems by being confident about yourself. Do discuss your small problems with your friends and parents so that you can take their genuine opinion. Eat healthy food and do workout ( exercise everyday for 1 hour). Soon you will feel good but yourself. Read good inspirational books or movies that can uplift your mood. Do yoga everyday. Sleep for 7-8hrs daily for the body and mind to clear up and feel fresh. Keep yourself cheerful and do your best. Follow up after some weeks for your feedback and any future guidance.

Good Morning ~ Male pattern balding starts very early for some and late for others, however it is usually familial and you should not be worried about hair loss. I am glad you quit smoking and I am sure you will get good results from using Mintop hair solution, even if the improvement will take time you will see good results. However you need to keep using the lotion or solution to maintain the hair growth. Also there are some definitive side effects of using Minoxidil and you should read it before you start using the solution since you are quite young now. I am sure you will have questions and I welcome any clarifications at any time. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Hi lybrate-user! I understand that anxiety must be your first and easiest emotion you experience but what you can do is to learn how to identify stressors, take necessary steps to remain calm and handle tense situations in a constructive, positive manner. I know it might sound very typical, but trust me this will help you in the long run. You can take up therapy from a psychologist and learn how to be assertive and practice mindfulness. You might also consider going to a psychologist to learn relaxation technique. Hope it helps you. Plus try the grounding technique i.e whenever you are anxious look around you: find five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste. It can help when you feel like you have lost all control of your surroundings. All the best!

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You do not know your boy friend yet. Don't judge him with your limited knowledge and experience. You are just 20. Complete your education. Then devote a year or two to understand your boy friend. Also remember, knowing another person can never be complete. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

I want to boost my memory or brain power. What I have to do, which drug and supplements are best for me. Currently I was taking vinpocetine (cognitol 5mg) from 3 days. I was take 1 tab/day.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory!’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Ditch the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Sat Nav may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Ban the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables?! It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Increase in urinary frequency may be due to diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infections, bladder stones or mass etc. Get an usg kubp done to exclude cystitis (bladder infection) or bladder stone. If there is no such symptoms present like burning in urine, fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar should be checked to exclude diabetes if not done recently. Serum sodium, 24hr urine volume and osmolality is checked for excluding diabetes insipidus. Also avoid sweetened drinks, alcohol and excess amount of coffe or tea intake. Water intake should be restricted to 3-4 litres per day. Also inform about any history of trauma or neurological diseases in past. They may cause overactive bladder. Then according to reports furthur treatment can be done.
