My brother got operated, he had stone in the gall bladder which was increased in a month as suggested by the doctors that operation is the only solution. However, I hears that after some time it gives issues in food digestion and affects your mood like irritation, anger e. T. C. Is it really true? And the other thing is he has some plump kind of in his stomach which doc shows us, as his tummy veins are very week. What the best way to make it stronger?

After operations it takes time to get to normal gradually it becomes normal. There should not be any affect like irritation, digestion. The digestion appetite, will all be ok do not worry. Have healthy balanced diet with lot of been leafy vegetables and plenty of water by mouth.

Dear lybrate user, I think you have low self esteem and low self confidence. Probably no one appreciated your strengths since your childhood. Please understand that we all have good and bad traits. Try to focus on your good points. Understand that every person in this world is valuable, so are you. Please get in touch with your school or college counsellor at the earliest. If you do not have one at school/college, then take an appointment with a private counsellor. You can get rid of your anxiety and fear with some behaviour therapy. Take care.

For tension relief sleep is ok. But excessive sleep leads to laziness loss of concentration in regular work. In sleeping time spend time outside. After work please meet friends and family share your office work and study things with your friends. After sharing the severity of the problems reduces then you relaxed then the next day you work properly you may not feel anytime tension. Tention reduced automatically your sleeping time also reduced so please make friendliness with others. Do not concentrate too much on studies and work. Both are important but too much leads to so many problems so be friendly be happy all the time best wishes.

Dear , you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

"Something Will Happen to Me?" "I Will Die!!"

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, de addiction
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
"Something Will Happen to Me?" "I Will Die!!"

Once in a lifetime all of us have had symptoms like heaviness in heart, increased heart beats, feeling that blood pressure will go up or fall down, chest pain, giddiness, heaviness of head, abdominal discomfort, dizziness, tremors in hands or shivering in body, etc which start suddenly without any stress or tension. They just peak in few minutes and are often accompanied by thoughts - 'I will die!' or 'Something will happen to me?'

'Everything around me has changed', 'my blood pressure will shoot up' A midst of the rapid climbing of the symptoms, the usual behaviour opted by most of us is rush to an emergency ward of a nearby hospital. All the check ups, blood investigations, ECG- electrocardiogram, Blood pressure assessment, etc done fast by the doctor. To our surprise 'Are tension kyu lete ho? sab normal hai !!' 

This makes us more worried that all the examinations and investigations are normal?? Then why this happened. Oh! this has to be something else which this doctor or hospital is not able to figure it out. So basic human psychology goes for a 2nd opinion and then 3rd, 4th and infinite, till we get a whole body check up. Sometimes same reports at different laboratories and wait for the diagnosis of what exactly is going on.

Everywhere the answer is 'Dont worry, You have nothing'. This hurts. Isn't it? More painful part, when it continues for few months, our family and near ones feel that this is nothing but stress and we should forget it. Some great advisors sympathize and advise for yoga and relaxation and go out of the station or spend time with friends, etc. But we know the agony it takes to have those symptoms and feeling blocked up everytime. Ahead fear enters in those places and spaces where this happens. We avoid them, like driving vehicle, queue, crowd, markets, travel, lift, theatre,etc. We feel that someone should accompany us and we will be safe.

This affects our work, time and major areas of life. What it is?? 

This is in simple words 'Panic disorder'. It is an anxiety group of disorders where mind misinterprets bodily symptoms and links it with situations or places and then the anxiety symptoms start. Why this happens? Neuro chemicals like serotonin, adrenaline and nor adrenaline and recently GABA have been implicated to be on a lower levels in brain which precipitate these symptoms. And most important part you are not at any fault in this low levels of chemicals. It is an individual vulnerability that differs and some people are more analytical or worrisome since childhood, harsh parenting or over pampering, high expectations, more body symptom concern, etc. are few factors which affect this vulnerability. 

What to do if I have panic? 

At 1st, panic disorder is NOT a serious psychiatric disorder. Yes, it is true. Websites may mention its catastrophic and worst prognosis, but it is not like that. Panic works on anxiety and fear cycle. This gets cleared off when treated in time. If you have panic, do not do anything. Sit and take deep breaths. Try to have a glass of water and relax. Most people become restless in order to get an immediate cure of panic symptoms. That is again a faulty behaviour. Going to doctors and emergency again and again will increase the chances of panic episodes.

Secondly, your mind needs to get a new form of learning everytime you have a panic. So be patient and let your mind know that this is anxiety and nothing life threatening. This will require two things - courage and patience.

Lastly, during panic episodes, do not take any decisions about your life or do not avoid any situations. This will aggravate the fear behind the episodes.

When to seek a Psychiatrist? 

When panic lasts for 30 days or more, affects your work and relationship, affects your concentration and memory; when your efforts fail to handle panic; when all the reports are normal and when you have some other symptoms with panic like depression, anger, addictions, medical conditions, etc. 

A psychiatrist can help you in both ways. Starting medications for quick relief of symptoms and if you and your psychiatrist feel then CBT- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or other psychotherapy. 

Panic disorder is treatable. Panic disorder is non-serious. Panic disorder needs your patience and courage. 

Be panic free, Live happily. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

So many things in mind creat insomnia or depression. First you need to relax your body and mind. Don't over think about the situation and take a chill. Things happen for good in life so first except the reality. And secondly start with yoga and pranayama it will definitely help you in attaining your sleep and your thoughts.

2-3 months ago I had depression and suicidal thoughts, suicidal thoughts were very frequent and I started cutting my skin in hand and I also attempted suicide once by cutting my wrist and got 4 stitches. But after some days these thoughts were not coming frequently. 1 or 2 times in a week, but now my depression is relapsing and suicidal thoughts are also coming again. I am afraid that I would harm myself again. Please help me.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Hi, it can be a phobia. A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation the affected person will go to great lengths to avoid, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - arnica 30/ 3 times a day daily for a month, revert.

It is impossible to give a diagnosis on your description. Nor is it easy for you to make a diagnosis. Schizophrenia is a very complex disease and needs professionals to assess it and to treat it. If you believe that you are mentally disturbed visit a counselor who will assess your condition and give you a professional opinion and diagnosis, if any. At your age and with no one to believe you or listen to you, you could feel very lonely and withdrawn. This itself is enough to disturb anyone. You must also work with the counselor about this negativity and see where it originated from and tackle that situation in your life. Please do not neglect this condition because a lot of unnecessary developments may lead you to worse problems, just by procrastination. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you need help and to even seek it. Many times people delay assistance due to the social stigma. You sound like an educated guy and my advice is to just reach out for the help you need. In the meantime please start vigorous exercise every day, get good sleep, and eat well. You must learn to socialize and involve people in your life. Since you are saying no one is there to believe you and listen to you, there may be a problem within you that is making so many people disregard you. That is a very important place to start with: you. The counselor will help you identify the subtle and obvious ways you are putting people off and you can then work on them to change your social skills.

Hi lybrate-user First of all do not pressurize your son by asking or demanding him to be quiet or demanding him to behave like other kids. Try to control him only during emergency situation for his safety as well as for others. Otherwise let him be his oewn self nothing wrong. Kids will change in the due course of time. First of all adults or family members stop arguing or fighting in front of him, try to avoid as possible as you can, try to control your emotions as well, and try to be as social, loving, polite and kind to others in front of him, bcoz the first role model for kids are their parents, then their siblings, uncle, aunt, and other relatives. Try to maintain, peace and harmony at home. Try to bring in a warm atmosphere at home. You can definitely advise your son regarding the same when he comes to you and sits next to you more affectionately, that is the perfect time to teach him how to behave, good and how to avoid bad qualities. They will definitely register the same even though they appear to have not listened to you in due course they will change. Do not worry. Be polite and loving to kids. If you need further assistance you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. With regards
