Repetitive tasks, intrusive and repetitive thoughts, checking, counting, disproportionate excess need for order and cleanliness, as well as anxiety when not able to do the same are signs of obsessive compulsive disorder. Patients with OCD suffer from significant distress, anxiety and depression due to the same which impairs their quality of life. Please consult a Psychiatrist at the earliest. With a combination of medication and behavioral therapy it is likely that your symptoms will improve.

My mother is a 58 year aged house wife. She has an extreme sort of depression that we understand. Initially from 3-4 years she used to ate sleeping pills in high numbers (10 to 16) but survived each time. We sometimes thought that she wanted to express her feeling to get attention but this time it was very high level but some how we were able to save her although she was kept on ventilator also in hospital for 7 days of the total 21 days. What we understand is that she wants to be taken care of on highest priority in any case or time otherwise she has a negative mindset and when she is given extra importance in daily routine then she use to dominate other people in the home. I am totally stuck in between. What to do because in any of the movement there happens a problem. Please advice.

Hi, it would be good if you could take your mother to a psychologist/ counsellor for weekly sessions to address her concerns. Psychologists are trained to handle depression and related concerns through one to one therapy wherein they not only give the patient empathy, positive regard but also become agents for positive change. I am not able to understand from your question whether she is on any anti depressant treatment as well. If not you need to see a psychiatrist since her symptoms seem acute and she needs medication as well. Meanwhile please ensure that she is not left unattended and does not have access to sleeping pills or sharp instruments etc easily.

Hot and cold therapy has a tendency to reduce pain, assist with tissue healing, control swelling, and increase flexibility if used appropriately after an injury.

About a month ago I had weed for the first time and had a very bad trip. It lasted for 6-7 days and on and off I could feel that high. After that I started thinking too much which resulted in stress and anxiety. I read it on the net that it can be followed by depression. Even now I Am constantly thinking about that trip and it feels like that feeling hasn't left. I am not very strong mentally and I am not able to control my thoughts. I am soo much into thinking that I do not remember sometimes what I did physically like I picked my phone from the table but I did not remember when. I will not do it again ever. I am very stressed about it and just want to be normal again. Please help.

Weed is chemically cannabis. Unless you use cannabis multiple times it doesnot cause any withdrawal. Your symptoms are only psychological. Your anxiety is an independent compliant by itself and seems unrelated to use of the weed. If you abstain from using weed you would remain free from symptoms that you are worried of. For your symptoms of anxiety consult a psychiatrist fir treatment and counselling.

What are the bad effects of smoking on lungs? how will cancer developed on smoking?

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Smoking most commonly leads to diseases affecting the heart and lungs and will most commonly affect areas such as hands or feet with first signs of smoking related health issues showing up as numbness, with smoking being a major risk factor for heart attacks, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd), emphysema, and cancer, particularly lung cancer, cancers of the larynx and mouth, and pancreatic cancer.overall life expectancy is also reduced in long term smokers, with estimates ranging from 10 to 17. 9. years fewer than nonsmokers about one half of long term male smokers will die of illness due to smoking. the association of smoking with lung cancer is strongest, both in the public perception and etiologically. Among male smokers, the lifetime risk of developing lung cancer is 17.2%; among female smokers, the risk is 11.6%. This risk is significantly lower in nonsmokers: 1.3% in men and 1.4% in women.historically, lung cancer was considered to be a rare disease prior to world war I and was perceived as something most physicians would never see during their career. With the postwar rise in popularity of cigarette smoking came a virtual epidemic of lung cancer.a person's increased risk of contracting disease is directly proportional to the length of time that a person continues to smoke as well as the amount smoked. However, if someone stops smoking, then these chances gradually decrease as the damage to their body is repaired. A year after quitting, the risk of contracting heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker.The health risks of smoking are not uniform across all smokers. Risks vary according to amount of tobacco smoked, with those who smoke more at greater risk. Smoking so-called" light" cigarettes does not reduce the risk.

Ayurveda and Smoking

MD - Ayurveda, BAMS
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Ayurveda and Smoking

Every packet of cigarette comes with the warning 'Smoking is injurious to health'. With every national budget plan, the prices of nicotine based additives are hiked. Yet, you cannot quit smoking because you find it extremely difficult to resist the nicotine urge. Ayurveda says that the root cause of addiction is mental stress due to one of the 3 Doshas that are Vata, Pitta, Kapha. People try to terminate them through temporary, addictive methods rather than a bit more natural, holistic methods. Here's how it can be easier for you to quit smoking by adopting Ayurvedic remedies.

Ayurvedic remedies:

  1. Drink adequate amount of water, especially from a copper vessel. This helps to accumulate the wastes and release them.
  2. Perform the Neti Kriya (inhaling saline water through one nostril and releasing it through the other and then reversing the procedure).
  3. Performing the Bhastrika Pranayama twice every day, both in the morning and at night.
  4. Consume 3 tablets or 1  teaspoon of triphala everyday before going to bed, to eliminate the deposited nicotine tar in your system.
  5. Consumption of a measured mixture of ashwagandha, bala, shatavari and ginseng every day, or a chyawanprash containing these help in detoxification.

Changes in diet:

  1. Avoid consumption of alcohol and other addictive drugs, such as coffee, sugar, etc. because they increase the urge to smoke.
  2. Decrease intake of fatty foods because your metabolism rate is lower than at most other times, so you might risk gaining weight during this period.
  3. Try a vegetarian diet because it increases the Sattvik quality of your mind. Every fresh food item contains prana or life which rejuvenates both your body and mind.
  4. Chew anti-nicotine gums or suck on cinnamon sticks which curb your urge to smoke.
  5. Keep eating low-calorie food items like carrots, apples or celery.
  6. Incorporating regular exercise in your routine may help you to quit smoking more easily. It controls weight gain, which is a side-effect of quitting, and also offers you a fit and healthy lifestyle.
  7. Meditating and doing yoga regularly helps in relaxing your mind. Yogic postures like Sabasan help attain internal peace and divert your mind from craving to smoke.

Besides these techniques, there are various other ways like taking help from a professional ayurvedic counselor, which will help you quit smoking, socializing with friends or spending quality time with your family, will keep your mind diverted from the stress of quitting.

You should try yoga. And have a walk after dinner. Take milk at night. And go sleep after that. Don't engage your self in any work becoz your not getting d sleep.

I am suffering from chronic depression and anxiety disorder. Is it a curable disease.
Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear , depression and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called depressive disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding depression helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which depressive disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

Please exercise atleast 20 minutes to 30 minutes even normal walk is good for increasing blood circulation. Revital tables are good as these help in improving. Improves mental alertness & concentration increases ability to handle stress helps improve your health, immunity & stamina supplements diet for increased well-being even if you are healthy, you can take revital as it gives all the vitamins and minerals your body needs on a daily basis. These days we do not eat the right quantity & quality of food that is required to fulfill all the daily requirements of vitamins & minerals, so we all need revital to stay fit and active. Take with water once a day after breakfast. Good luck and god bless you.

If you are already on medication for anxiety, depression, or blood pressure, there is risk of interaction between that and ginseng. Do not self medicate or take any over the counter medication/ health supplements without the advice of your doctor. Adverse side effects can occur.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

If you have doubts about the correctness of the diagnosis you have at least 2 options i) ask for some time from the doctor (and offer to pay fair charges for the time allotted to you) and request the doctor to explain the diagnosis to you and why he makes that diagnosis in your case. Please don't argue with the doctor. Just listen to the doctor's explanation and ask for further clarification of medical terms if you have not understood. Your job is to understand the doctor's thought process and not to teach him medicine and diagnosis. Also ask him what his treatment plans are and over what period of time could you expect to see appreciable improvement. Also ask which symptoms/features of the illness will be helped by medicines and which ones will not be. Learn from the doctor what you can do to help the treatment in terms of diet, habits or discipline etc. Or the other option is ii) ask to be referred for a second opinion - a professional will readily do so. If the doctor refuses to refer you for a second opinion then do so yourself. Explain to the doctor that you do not wish to question his treatment and wisdom but you need to understand your illness better. If this doctor is the nearest psychiatrist to where you stay prefer to continue with him even after the second opinion unless he has bed-side manners which are not to your liking.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
You have to keep aside all your worries. Note down important tasks to be done after study and forget about them while studying. Keep study room comfortable. You may plan joint study with any of your colleagues who may bring your attention back when diverted during study. You may download few relaxing music or instrumental music to run in background while studying.
