Feeling low energy and reaches in hand or legs headache mood swing can curable?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, (MRCPSYCH-UK)
Psychiatrist,
Feeling low energy and reaches in hand or legs headache mood swing can curable?
These are symptoms of depressive illness. Depressive illness is a medical/psychiatric illness that can be treated effectively by antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy. So one has to see a psychiatrist. Kindly ask your psychiatrist to change the medications and do cbt or change the psychiatrist at the earliest. Psychiatrist after assessment and evaluation will decide on the best antidepressant medication that is suitable to you. These antidepressant medications are not sedatives or addictive in a nature. The course may last for 4-6 months depending upon the severity of the illness.

I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.
I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Sir I want to do everything myself. Is it a mania or fobia?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, that is not a mental disorder at all. You can do everything yourself unless you feel satisfied. That is perfectionism and your personality style is perfectionist. Continue doing it if others in your team are happy about it and there is no complaints and pitfalls about this way of yours. Enjoy life. Take care.

You may follow a destressing and health promoting routine in the form of early morning awakening, daily meditation/yoga, morning walk/jog, taking healthy diet in the form of plenty of fruits, salads and sprouts, evening games/sports/workout, enough rest, recreation and socialization and adequate sleep. You should take help of your friends/relatives at the time of crisis. If needed you may consult a psychiatrist for talk therapy (psychotherapy) and or medicines to relieve tension.

My friend have depression problem due to his break up with his girlfriend. Please tell me how can I help you?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
My friend have depression problem due to his break up with his girlfriend. Please tell me how can I help you?
It looks like you he is pining for her after the break up. You could help him analyze why they had this fallout? If it his fault, then he needs to apologize and see if she is amenable. If not he may have done something quite unforgiveable. In any relationship there must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. Now whatever went wrong and if it cannot be helped, then he has to leave all this far behind. Good friends like you can make a huge difference by distracting him, making him feel worthy, lovable and above all to not become too negative and become suicidal. If you see that he has serious problems about the break up please take him to a counselor and make sure that he follows that person’s advice. Help him remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of his system, not mind. Help him keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to his old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do help him to get back with them and get into good social circles. They will help him get over her. Do not talk ill or malign his ex to his friends or to him, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this beak up is so serious for him, do meet up with a counselor and talk about his feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. He will find another but teach him not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time he needs to choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman. You must help him do that and improve his self-belief.

When you are not studying take break with some nice soothing music, divine music or walking outside especially in morning and listening to audio on your earphones, and do some meditation and yoga to balance mind. Avoid meat, eggs and intoxicants and too much time of social media and television.

I work out in the gym and follow a proper diet. I see results and muscle growth. But as soon as I take a break for a few days, my gains are gone. How do I increase my muscle memory?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
I work out in the gym and follow a proper diet. I see results and muscle growth. But as soon as I take a break for a ...
Hye, Thanks for the query. Firstly, exercise should not be an ON /OFF affair. Even if you cannot workout in the gym, you need to put in some other workout which you can manage at least thrice a week. Also if your diet is not good, gains will not even as good. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1. Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2. Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3. Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day. 4. Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5. Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, smoothies, milk shakes etc. 6. Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milkshakes or fruit smoothies with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7. Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more. 8. Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9. Be patient with yourself Hoping to gain weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Even if you follow all the advice that is there, you may end up gaining just 1-2 kilos in a month. Every body is different, and just because you are not seeing results in terms of weight gain, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. Living healthy by eating the right diet will make you feel better and more positive about life and increase your strength. 10. Believe in yourself.

As we are growing up, we learn many things from our elders and from the environment. Anxiety and fears are all because of our conditioning since childhood. It will be very important to know, in what situations you feel more anxious. Even about the unknown fear, you need to think more and understand what are you scared of? and what has caused this? once you know this, then it will be easier for you to get rid of this. A counsellor will be of great help. Unless you are diagnosed with" anxiety disorder" by a psychologist or a psychiatrist, please don't label yourself with anxiety disorder. If any medication is given to you, please take it under doctor's supervision. Do not give negative messages to your own self. Have faith in your abilities. Try to improve your physical and mental strength. Good luck.
