Your symptoms suggest you have overactive bladder. Stop consuming tobacco/alcohol, excessive tea, cofee, paan-masala. Ensure that you do not have constipation. Start tab oxybutynin 2. 5mg, at night daily for 1 month.

This medicine is good for you but you also need to work with a counselor for some behavior modification program to expose you to the situations that cause obsessions and compulsions to gradually de-condition you. OCD is not a lifelong disorder and will over time reduce in intensity. Therapy hastens this process and together with the medication you can work through it better. It is related to fear and so emotional therapy will go a long way to alleviate symptoms and the underlying causes. You need to stay committed and remain cooperative right through the treatment.

Depression- Symptoms, Self-Help, Coping Tips and Treatment

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Depression- Symptoms, Self-Help, Coping Tips and Treatment

Feeling tired all the time? Do you feel that you can’t focus on things anymore? Have you lost interest in things and people you once loved spending time with? Does your temper fly off the hook at the drop of a hat? If it is a ‘yes’ to the questions above, then you might be slowly but steadily succumbing to depression. Depression is a psychological disorder that is characterized by symptoms of extreme sadness, worthlessness and hopelessness over a prolonged period of time.

Symptoms

  1. Lack of Interest: This is probably the starkest of all the symptoms. Hobbies or activities that you used to enjoy once no longer catch your fancy. You do not find little or no pleasure in social activities or any other hobby of yours anymore.
  2. A constant Feeling of Hopelessness: You tend to develop a negative outlook towards life in general, as you feel that the current situation will never get better and will only worsen.
  3. Loss of Appetite: Loss of appetite is a common feature of depression; it can also lead to rapid weight loss. If engulfed by depression, one generally tends to ignore food completely, remain hungry, both of which contribute to the vicious cycle that depression is.
  4. Changes in Sleep Patterns: Insomnia is a condition that is marked by a sheer inability to sleep, no matter how physically exhausted one is. Depression tends to exhibit this particular symptom in maximum cases. However, oversleeping, or sleeping more than the sufficient hours is also common.
  5. Reckless Behavior: Depression makes one more prone to reckless behavior; one generally develops an angry and irritated persona; this in turn, may make one to exhibit reckless and rash behavior.
  6. Lack of Energy and Focus: Depression causes one to feel fatigued and sluggish the entire day. Factors such as a total loss of appetite contribute to this particular symptom. Stemming from these symptoms are two other major occurrences; an inability to focus on anything and an inability to decide on anything.

Self-help, Coping tips and Treatment-

  1. Connect with different people: Being isolated from the rest can and usually aggravates symptoms of depression. So, reach out to other people and your loved ones; talk to your loved ones and try to empty your mind when you are having a one-to-one with them. Interacting and talking to others will make you feel better and should go a long way in taking that huge rock off your chest.
  2. Try to ditch that sedentary lifestyle; go out in the open: An early morning jog can feel daunting at first but the benefits are immense. Exercising regularly has been proven to be as effective as anti-depressants in combatting depression. Even a 20 minutes jog early in the morning releases ‘endorphins’ in the body, also known as the ‘feel good hormones’. These hormones induce a feeling of happiness and relaxation, thus taking your mind off any particular event or circumstance that has been ruining your sanctity of late.
  3. Avoid Alcohol and Drugs: Avoid alcohol and drugs to come out of your sadness; they have never helped and will never help. Taking these substances provides a temporary solution to depression, as it will again show up once the effects of the intoxicants wear off. It will also interfere with other medications that you may be taking to combat depression, thus reducing their potency.
  4. It’s high time you bought the meditating mat: Sleep has a beneficial effect on your mental health as it has been proven to improve memory and other cognitive and brain functions. Another way to improve brain function and be more relaxed is to meditate regularly. Meditation induces a state of relaxation, and if done on a regular basis, can be an effective treatment for depression. Meditation also helps with an improved focus and reduced anxiety.
  5. Medications can always help: Medications such as anti-depressants are administered to treat depression. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), including citalopram, fluoxetine and sertraline are the most commonly administered medications to cure this condition. However, it is advised to try the abovementioned methods first so that you do not have to depend on medications alone; the reason being that these medications do have their fair share of side effects.

I have a breathing difficulty problem. Tests like ECG, Stress ECG, 2D ECO, LFT, Chest CT scan are all OK. I was under treatment for depression and was treated with Bupron SR 150, which I had stopped now. I was OK for some time but now problem persists. What next?.

Get a simple breathing test called spirometry done which will reveal any underlying obstructive airway disease like asthma. If you feel like impending doom with muscle spasm during breathlessness then get an ABG done during the episode. Visit with ABG report then.

A fetish is when a person is sexually aroused by certain objects, body parts, or situations that are not usually considered sexual by the mainstream culture. Anything can be a fetish, and having a sexual fetish is not uncommon. To enjoy your fetish, start by accepting that it's a natural part of your sexual desire, and learn to communicate your sexual needs openly. If you and your partner are uncomfortable talking about your fetish, consider counseling from a sex-positive therapist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Skin tanning usually happens due to melanin deficiency. I am sure you must have consulted a, skin specialist. I am sure they treated you. Worrying and thinking about suicide is of no use. Understand the situation and learn to accept it. Remember those people with deformed face or body parts. You atleast have everything. Be happy. Take care.

I am a 25 year guy and I feel weary every now and then! Afternoon sleep does make me feel a bit better, but after an hour or two, I feel like I am deprived on energy and liveliness again. As of now, I am unemployed and feel like I would be a very big failure in my life! I don't know what my passion is and don't know what to do next! Sometimes even comprehending simple things becomes difficult while talking, I feel like being completely empty with no feelings within. I am honestly very disappointed and feel like I shouldn't have had been born. I feel like I have been only born to bring bad name to my family! I guess I have something called anxiety anxiety too a day ago I had been at a popular restaurant nearby and it felt like everything went blank! I guess I am not fit for 8 hr job as my energy it vanishes within an hour or two! I felt like consulting a psychologist but none of my family member would come forward and I don't have courage to tell this to them! Four years back I had got diagnosed with intermittent Testicular torsion which further hit the bit of confidence I had! I told my closer friends about this that time and thought they would be a huge support and would help me in battling this but instead I was being made fun of, every other day! For the next three years (after the torsion), I couldn't concentrate on anything and feared that I could have the torsion again at any next moment! The more I tried to get the rid of that thought, the more stronger it seemed to became! Hearing my heartbeat was the second biggest fear even today the moment I hear my heartbeat, I try concentrating to something else! I seriously don't know what to do with my life!

Dear lybrate-user, Please take this questionnaire - BPHQ Over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems? Please mark as 0.Not at all 1.Less than 7 days 2.More than 7 days3. Nearly every day a. Little interest or pleasure in doing things b. Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless c. Trouble falling or staying asleep or sleeping too much d. Feeling tired or having little energy e. Poor appetite or overeating f. Feeling bad about yourself — or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family down g. Trouble concentrating on things, such as reading the newspaper or watching television h. Moving or speaking so slowly that other people could have noticed. Or the opposite — being so fidgety or restless that you have been moving around a lot more than usual i. Thoughts that you would be better off dead or of hurting yourself in some way With the score on these questions, please talk with your father or uncle or grandfather. Convince them that you have a problem of Mixed Anxiety Disorder or/and Disease Phobia. They may not make fun of you. They may be coming forward to consult a psychiatrist or psychologist. Otherwise go back to your doctor who treated you for testicular torsion and tell him your other fears With BPHQ score) and request him to refer to psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. One has to think of alternatives which may work or may not work. But there are always alternatives, if you search for. If going to a psychiatrist is a stigma for family, you can be treated online if your doctor sends report on testicular torsion treatment, your blood hormonal levels and your general medical examination or check up. You can go on treatment if you are able to manage the fees for consultations without involving any family member or friend.

Hello lybrate user your weekness and other compalints are result of low haemoglobin level. Just start some haematinic tablet or syp daily. Also eat beet, palak, methi and khajur fruits. It help to increase hb level and as your hb become normal other complaint will reduce gradually.

You sound like you could be depressed. The hand swelling needs to be investigated by a doctor but with regard to depression you may follow the recommendations mentioned below: At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. 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.

Depression is a treatable disease of the mind, which certainly affects your thinking, mood, emotions and also your decision making. Rather than blaming god or anyone for waste of your money, it would be more appropriate to start treatment for your depression. Like any other illness it is completely treatable. Consult online with a brief description of your present complaints and details of treatment taken if any so far. Take care.
