I have lot of body pains.What can i do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
I have lot of body pains.What can i do?
Body pain may be due to tiredness/ viral illness/electrolyte imbalance. Take plenty of oral fluids like fruit juice, lemon water, shakes, lassi etc. Take ors solution if you have sweated a lot. Take rest. If still have much pain then massage and a tablet of paracetamol may help. Do not take much medication without prescription.

Both of you need to sit down and have an open and honest communication with each other. What are you as a person, don' t give false promises about yourself. Be honest. What can you do and not do for the relationship. What do you expect from your boyfriend. Let him also talk openly. Remember not to blame each other and try to see each others perspectives. Learn to overlook small mistakes, compromise and respect each other. If this relationship is serious then this will help you to maintain it for a long time. Click on private chat to consult me.

One of my relative, 40 yrs female who is diagonized with schizophrenia has been using Respodal 2mg & Pacetane 2mg both grinded together and taken daily for last 6 years. Does this medicine have any effect on Menstrual cycle, after taking this she is having irregular periods, for this she did consult Dr. and used some medicine and she did have menstrual cycle once in a while not regular but finally was told may due to her age (40 yrs) she ie nearing to menopause. But recently she had gone out of station and she was not on medicine (i. E Respodal & Pacetane) she had a menstrual cycle after almost 7 months and having not taken medicine for 10 days she again started taking medicine after 10 days gap now she is having tingling on hands and she wakes up all of a sudden in night and need to message the arms. What can be the reason behind this? Earlier she also had problem like tongue has been pulled inside or twisted. Does the taking of this medicine effect Heart too.

Yes the medicines that pt is taking esp for the prob of schizophrenia are having quite a lot side effects and all of the above you have mentioned may come in varying intensity in the patient as per the age, life style, mental state etc. In such condition, if you take homeopathic support along side, it can help you to recover along with minimizing the side effects of above medicines.

It seems stress related and at your age, there could be a lot of hormonal imbalances that could cause some disturbances that need attention. Anger may be one of the unresolved issues that are seeking resolution and is coming up at this juncture just for that. Meet with a counselor and seek some help regarding your emotions. In the meantime, you could implement some of these suggestions to improve sleep: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Epilepsy is a chronic disease, and it needs medicines for a long time. This would keep seizures under control. Shivering can be a side effect of medication too such as sodium valproate.

Sir/Madam, I am 27years old unmarried boy. My father expired due to road accident last year at age of 51. He was living in Jaipur along with family (mother and brother). I was close to him as he was my idol. My sole aim of life was to make him proud by fulfilling his wish of me become IAS. But since the accident I am very depressed. I think about him every day. I always believed everything happens for a good reason but I can't find any in this. I lost faith in god. He was really a good man. Never did wrong to anybody and taught me same. That's why I feel so much anger that why he went away like this. I have so much regrets like when He was in hospital after accident I got scared so much that I didn't do anything for him. I should have been brave. I regret that he was in tension in his last days as he was cheated by his brother and I knowing this fact didn't console or reduce his tension, I was busy in my job. I am living in Noida alone. I left my job 4 months ago and I am unable to prepare for a new job. I was senior software engineer. I don't find positivity in anything. I lost interest in everything. I lost aim of my life and don't know what to do with my life. He was the most important thing in my life. I will never b as good man as him. I can't move on. Sometimes I wish I was dead instead of him. My mother always keep talking about him and cries everyday. This makes me even more sad. Sometimes I feel like I don't want to live anymore but I don't have this option as I have to take care of my brother and mother. But I don't how much more I can take it. Please help me.

Your father is there in heaven looking at you and must be feeling very proud of you that you respect and love him so much. I am sure you are a good man that you want to take care of your family. These kinds of feelings are normal after loosing your loved ones. Do not blame your self for any kind of behaviour or do not feel guilty for anything now get hold of your self and start thinking what your dad would want of you. Always experience his blessings n his presence around you. You can still make him proud. He wants you to be happy so pamper yourself with your friends and go out often. I am sure you will be fine and soon you will get a good job. Do not loose faith in god sometimes we can not understand his ways. God surely has better plan for you and your father is in better place now. All the best sm and take care of yourself and your family.

You are having anxiety attacks and need to meet with a counselor immediately. You must continue with the counseling to develop coping mechanisms to face the daily challenges of life. Because you are not handling fear well, you tend to over-react to normal fear with abnormal anxiety attacks. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately, can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted upon now. Accordingly, you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of anxiousness to disappear from your life for good.

You need to learn some behavioural techniques which will help you in managing your anxiety. You can talk to a counsellor who will help you with this. You are feeling better because of the medicines. So please consult your doctor before tapering it down or before stopping it. Talk to your doctor about starting therapy. Medication along with therapy will give you good results. And then after consulting your doctor and your counsellor you will be able to stop these medicines.

Your worrying about your future and career could be the reason that stress may be the cause of your acidity. You must meet with a counselor and take some measures to alleviate your stress. Stress management classes will certainly help too. Your must watch your diet to reduce acidity (include a lot of probiotics in your food intake), and you must start an exercise program too. Make sure you get good sleep every day. Our mind can disturb our body by a whopping 98% with stress and cause a lot of psychosomatic problems. You calm your mind, you heal your body.

How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Is depression eating you up from within? Are you facing severe emotional meltdown? Emotional disturbances can ruin your life and this is why you have to look for the best preventive ways. You can have a consultation with any counsellor so that you can share your problems. Your counsellor will definitely help you to get some potential way out. 

Best ways for preventing emotional meltdown:

  1. Detecting the signs: The actual signs of emotional meltdown need to be detected and then only you can get rid of the same. Both your facial expressions and behavioural changes are to be observed carefully as these will help you to detect the signs. If you are remaining silent for most of the times, then there is something going on in your mind for sure. 
  2. Early intervention: You should rely on your intuition or sixth sense so that you can sense the troubles you are going to face. You should have a good observation power so that you can sense things easily. Remain quiet and calm so that you can take the right decisions. 
  3. Living well: You need to choose a completely healthy way of living, otherwise you will never get freedom from emotional troubles. Do not think much about past incidents, rather you should look forward so that you can go ahead. You should develop only positive mentality in order to discharge your duties in a perfect manner. Remain happy and keep everybody happy and then only you will be able to get the actual essence of life. Healthy eating and good habits are also needed so that your life can become more lively and refreshing. 
  4. Have proper communication: If you think that your friends or family members are pretty reliable, then you can openly communicate with them. This would help you to get mental relief and relaxation.  If you open up your emotions and share them with anybody, then you will feel relaxed and your mind will be calm at all times. 
  5. Have counselling: It is not always possible to share all your secrets with your loved ones and this is the reason you have to look for the most reliable option. You can go for thorough counselling, and this can help you to get rid of depressing thoughts and other mental troubles. In this case, you have to look for the best counsellor in your locality so that you can disclose all your hidden secrets.

Hi lybrate-userthanks for the query relation between lovers or any couple is like bicycle and couples are like their wheels when there will be balance then it will run smoothly and when there will be any type of disturbance in any wheel it will lead to disbalance in your what you can do is to talk clearly and if she says no then you must stop any type of contact with her because you will gain nothing and your life will be like hell. Try to divert your mind involve yourself in some other activity make some new friends. May be you are thinking that you can convince her but if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
I suffering from anxiety and depression. What to do? Please help me.
Anxiety is often seen to go with depression but the underlying cause could be anger and you need to identify whether that is of recent origin or comes from some experience in childhood. If it recent you can easily find out the origin and deal with it; if it from childhood do meet with a counselor and sort out the deep rooted issues concerning the unexpressed emotions from that time. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.
