I am having mood swing issue, I easily get angry and depressed, what should I do?

Hypnotherapist, Reconnective Healing Practioner
Psychologist, Mumbai
Sit by yourself, close your eyes. Take 3 deep breaths, then just observe your breathing. Once you feel centred ask yourself why are you so upset, angry at yourself, your surrounding or situation. If you feel helpless reach out to a friend who you can talk with. Depression is a sign of holding within and not expressing yourself clearly. You are bottling up your frustration and that is creating anger within. Release it by excercising, walking in the park and spending time with what you really enjoy doing. Learn to meditate and most important make friends and spend time with them chatting and doing fun things. If you find doing all this difficult, reach out to a counsellor or psychologist.

Don't let your talent be taken away for the crush of a girl who doesn't bother about u. You might be destined for great heights and many might start having the crush for u soon. Shrug her off ur mind and get back to studies, education is your long time future, not this silly girl

Lorazepam on a shorter course few weeks is good drug, on a longer run is very harmful. It can produce early dementia, withdrawal seizures, personality changes, brain shrinkage. But you cannot stop suddenly. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person, it s dose has to be tapered and substitutes given.

Dear lybrate-user, the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

My voice was very good. I use to smoke but quit 2 months back. But if I speak continuously even 10 mnts also. My voice getting rough. Please do the needful.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, Clinical Elective
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Quitting smoking is not supposed to be related to hoarseness of voice. But, during the initial period after quitting you may experience throat irritation and increased cough. If that is what you have, you can relax. Otherwise consult ENT specialist for change of voice.

Whenever you get angry, detach yourself from that situation and practice deep breathing, feel that your anger is moving out from your mind. Share with your closed ones. Identify your thoughts which make you angry. Replace those with positivity. With the help of counselling, you will learn to relax yourself and to instruct your subconscious mind with positive thoughts.

How Brain Health Can Be Improved With Vitamin B?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, ACLS, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN RHEUMATOLOGY

How Brain Health Can Be Improved With Vitamin B?

A vitamin is an organic compound, which is required by the human body in appropriate amounts to ensure the proper and healthy functioning of the various body parts. These vitamins help you in being healthy and maintaining an optimum level of brain activity. The deficiency of the same can cause you to have various health issues and illnesses.

B Vitamins are of various subtypes, and they are collectively known as B-Complex Vitamins. These vitamins are medically proven to relieve stress and boost up your energy levels. They also fight depression, restrict brain ageing and help you to live a longer life. Here's how B vitamins help in keeping your brain healthy.

  • Prevent mental decline: The three vitamin B types that help to avoid a mental decline are: B6, B12, and B9 (Folic Acid). Additionally, these 3 vitamins also prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Act as dopamine boosters: Dopamine is a neurotransmitter inside the brain that that boosts productivity, motivation and focus among human beings. This helps to ensure your mental well-being keep you mentally happy. B vitamins enhance your brain health by facilitating an increase in dopamine levels.
  • Lets you avoid mental disorders: The lack of Vitamin B12 leads to certain mental disorders like- dementia, brain atrophy, brain shrinkage, depression, and schizophrenia. You can avoid this condition by taking Vitamin B12 supplements.
  • Sharpen memory: In case you have a short term memory or face other memory problems, various forms of B vitamins supplements will help you to regain the optimal state of mind.

Benefits of Vitamin B Subtypes- 

  • Vitamin B1: Vitamin B1 strengthens the immune system and improves the body's ability to withstand stressful conditions. Very good sources of vitamin B1 include asparagus, mushrooms, romaine lettuce, spinach, tuna, sunflower seeds, green peas, tomatoes, sprouts and eggplant. 
  • Vitamin B2: Vitamin B2 is required to protect cells from oxygen damage. It plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins. Common food sources of vitamin B2 are milk, cheese, leafy green vegetables especially spinach, liver, kidneys, tomatoes, yeast, legumes, almonds and mushrooms. 
  • Vitamin B3: Vitamin B3 is important in energy production. It is essential for conversion of the body's proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into usable energy. Foods rich in Vitamin B3, such as dairy products, can compensate for not consuming enough niacin in the diet because the body can convert tryptophan to niacin. Good sources of Vitamin B3 are avocados, tomatoes, dates, leaf vegetables, carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, chicken, beef, fish: salmon, tuna, milk and eggs. 
  • Vitamin B5: Vitamin B5 is needed to release energy from sugars, starches, and fats. It helps to support the adrenal glands. Small quantities of Vitamin B5 are found in nearly every food, with high amounts in whole-grain cereals, eggs, legumes and meat. 
  • Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats, as well as for normal nerve function and for the formation of red blood cells. Foods rich in vitamin B6 are turnip greens, spinach, garlic, tuna, bell peppers, cauliflower, banana, mustard greens, cabbage, asparagus, celery, broccoli, collard greens, kale and sprouts. 
  • Vitamin B7: Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It is also helpful in keeping blood sugar at normal level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Foods with a relatively high biotin content include liver, egg yolk and some vegetables. 
  • Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 with folic acid is necessary for the formation and maturation of red blood cells and the synthesis of DNA. Vitamin B12 is also necessary for normal nerve function. Vitamin B12 occurs in foods that come from animals. Plants are poor sources of vitamin B12. Thus in vegetarians, supplementation may be required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

I have pain at right bottom of my head above right ear. I regularly smoke one or two times a day. But I try to stop smoking. Whenever I got pain usually I get relief by smoke. If I avoiding smoke it get start pain. Pls help me. It is brain problem or simple pain or major issue.

Hello, You get relief after smoking that is the temporary effect of tobacco on your body which indirectly acts as an analgesic and the pain subsides for some hours. As per symptoms you will need an otoscopic examination of the ear which is possible only if you visit an ENT specialist. Rest I can advise you is try to quit smoking because it is harmful for your lungs and body and it will also subside body signals such as pain and other symptoms which are seen in some diseases. For detailed history taking and treatment you can take my online consultation here: www.Lybrate.com/dr-prashantpawar Thank you.

As you mentioned you are already taking medication for thyroid problem. And moreover, mind needs rest, to recover itself. Our body clock is designed in such a way that only 6-8 hrs sleep in the night will be beneficial for the proper functioning of body and mind. So, try studying at daytime, and get proper sleep at night, only then you mind gets relaxed. Taking medication for relaxing mind, can relax your mind for sometime, but have serious ill effect afterwards on your health.

What is symptoms for bipolar disorder? And what are reason behind it and how can one prevent it!

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Bipolar disorder can look very different in different people. The symptoms vary widely in their pattern, severity, and frequency. Some people are more prone to either mania or depression, while others alternate equally between the two types of episodes. Some have frequent mood disruptions, while others experience only a few over a lifetime. There are four types of mood episodes in bipolar disorder: mania, hypomania, depression, and mixed episodes. Each type of bipolar disorder mood episode has a unique set of symptoms.

Im a singer! Pls tell about tips and exercise for our vocal chord! What is the good way for better voice quality sound?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

His condition is serious especially the blood int eh stool. Ideally, the decision to want to quit must come from the addict himself. In this case, there is a danger to his life if he continues, and therefore the decision must be made by responsible others. If this is difficult for you, do get the counsel and help of an elderly relative whom he respects and let him do the convincing. If he does not cooperate, then take the decision and call in the rehabilitation center to just take him away. He may be what people refer to as an addict on ‘skid row’ i.e. Only death can stop him – 20% of alcoholics are on skid row, world over. Knowing that someone else responsible has to make that decision for him and will do him the favor of a life-saving course of action, do so without any hesitation. Do not feel any guilt about doing this because you will surely save his life, and perhaps his health. If he wants to and is willing, he can get out of the addiction to alcohol with support. If he thinks he can do it from home, that I agree, may be very difficult. He has developed dependence and tolerance, two factors that work together, to increase our need for the substance and to need more of it for the same pleasure, over time. These effects condition us psychologically and physically, that giving up appears to be a very difficult task. That is why detoxification is recommended for chronic cases to eliminate the physical craving, at least, to start the process of relatively easier recovery. First, it is important to identify why one drinks: it usually has something to do with suppressing some deep-rooted pain. Then you can admit him for detoxification. Get thorough knowledge about the habit, about alcohol, and its mechanisms. Let him attend AA meetings, and since his case is very serious, admit him into a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. The desire to want to quit is perhaps the most important condition. Giving up the habit is not easily done by oneself: he will need the support and help of a good group and therapist. By the way, he may have many relapses but he should never give up. His perseverance is the key. And the help of your family is absolutely essential to a good resolution. He needs to develop new habits and find new ways of gratification etc. All in all, he needs to be able to abstain from alcohol for at least three years to know that he is relatively safe from alcoholism. There is another drive called the Script Drive, which needs elaborate explanations. After the rehabilitation, if he still finds the urge too strong, then he can be prescribed disulfiram that will cause from mild to severe reaction and sometimes even hospitalization if he even consumes a tiny amount. Compliance to the prescription is the key for this success.

I have smoking habit. I smoke 3 to 4 cigarettes daily. Will I get any problem if I run daily?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will only experience a problem while running because of your smoking as compared to a non-smoker. But exercise is welcome anytime and with any condition because it is the most holistic medicine. However, smoking is bad for everyone whether they exercise or not. If you smoke and exercise your stamina will not be that good. Over a period of time it can only get worse. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke will reduce the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and you will tend to get exhausted, easily. Besides, there are more than 4000 thousand chemical substances in tobacco smoke and most of them are harmful. My advice is to quit smoking immediately and your exercise will stand to benefit you tremendously.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.
