This phenomenon has been studied. The persons who have mental illness or epilepsy and organic brain damage are more susceptible to either suggestions of something like magnetic changes might cause such a phenomenon. Treatment is to give a minor tranquilizer or sedative injection or antipsychotics or antiepileptic dose increase well in advance by own doctor.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Brown sugar addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user. The only thing that you need to do is to immediately get an ultrasound scan done as soon as you realise that you are pregnant as there is high chance of recurrence. There is actually no way to prevent an ectopic pregnancy. All the best trupti.

I do a lot of daydreaming. Sometimes when I am alone I talk with myself and laugh. My 95℅ time goes in daydreaming, useless imaginations. This problem starts when was in 11th. Before it I used to daydreaming but rarely. In 12 th I saw movie TITANIC and I lost in daydreams about movie for 3-4 day. After this incident daydreaming becomes my habit. I am not able to concentrate even a single second to anything. When I started daydreaming in 11th class my performance at studies decreased exponentially. I got 88℅ in Xth but in XIIth only 60. Because I can't concentrate on studies. And in B.Tech. Only 58℅. I have stammering issues since childhood. So sir please help me. What is the problem in my brain?

Here are Some Stress Tips

Here are Some Stress Tips

Healthy techniques that psychological make inquiries has shown to help diminish stress in the short- and long-term.

Take a break from the stressor. It may seem complicated to get away from a big work project, a crying baby or a growing credit card bill. But when you give yourself permission to step away from it, you let yourself have time to do something else, which can help you have a new perspective or practice techniques to feel less overwhelmed.

Exercise. The research keeps growing — exercise benefits your mind just as well as your body. We keep hearing about the long-term benefits of a regular exercise routine. But even a 20-minute walk, run, swim or dance session in the midst of a stressful time can give an immediate effect that can last for several hours.

Smile and laugh. Our brains are interconnected with our emotions and facial expressions. When people are stressed, they often hold a lot of the stress in their face. So laughs or smiles can help relieve some of that tension and improve the situation.

Get social support. Call a friend, send an email. When you share your concerns or feelings with another person, it does help relieve stress. But it’s important that the person whom you talk to is someone whom you trust and whom you feel can understand and validate you. If your family is a stressor, for example, it may not alleviate your stress if you share your works woes with one of them.

Meditate. Meditation and mindful prayer help the mind and body to relax and focus. Mindfulness can help people see new perspectives, develop self-compassion and forgiveness. When practicing a form of mindfulness, people can release emotions that may have been causing the body physical stress. Much like exercise, research has shown that even meditating briefly can reap immediate benefits.

Dear lybrate user, good to know that you've quit the habit. Add a pich of salt to a glass of lukewarm water and rinse your mouth three times daily. Brush gently twice daily with a soft toothbrush to maintain good oral hygiene. Get yourself monitored regularly. Avoid eating heavily fried, extremely hot and spicy food. Consume lots of fluids, water and fruits. Establish a healthy routine by taking out time to exercise and try to stay stress-free. Too much workload is harmful.

Hello, at 20 years of age, it is very natural to feel tensed about future and feel insecure. Here it appears you are procrastinating over some thing in the past. Remember, past is past. And unless you keep digging it out, it can not be brought back. May be you have done something wrong and you fear it may affect your present and future? in that case, it is best to talk it out with someone. A trusted friend or a parent, tell them what is wrong and they might be able to be your support system if the problems strike.

If you really love her accept her the way she is. Love and marriage are not based on looks. They are purely based on love.

Hi lybrate-user, yes if test reports are normal its due to anxiety and stress. First and foremost follow doctor's prescription secondly, consult a psychologist for effective management of anxiety symptoms. You can consult with me too. Daily do abdominal breathing exercise 4 seconds inhale- 4 seconds hold- 4 seconds breathe out through mouth.

Hi lybrate-user yours is a very serious problem which takes the quality life away from its victim. You must have consulted many doctors and I am sure no one suggested a permanent solution to this. Currently you are depressed with so much pains and your reaction is quite natural. But, this is not going to solve the problem any how. Homoeopathy can offer you good alternative and it can help you a lot. It is very much possible to cure your problem with homeopathic medicines. Right now I am suggesting some medicines for you and if you feel better in any sense then contact me, I will solve your problem 1. Aurum metallicum 6/thrice daily/1 day take this medicine for one day and report after 7 days of this. Observe properly of any slight changes after this medicine and let me know about it.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Yes lybrate-user, you are suffering from phobic anxiety. It is panic attack which you translate it as nearing heart attack. Panic is panic it never will turn into heart attack you must have noticed panic attack last for few minutes and then subsides. Anxiety is fear. It's the activation of the fight or flight system, which is the system that your body uses to react to fear responses. Anxiety disorders occur because the body is activating that response when no danger is present. But in addition to being fear, anxiety also causes other fears. That's one of the reasons that anxiety can be hard to treat without help. One of the fears it causes is a fear of cardiovascular problems (poor heart health), and often those fears end up contributing to further anxiety. It would be disingenuous to say you do not have a heart condition, because there is no way to know until you talk to your doctor. But let's assume that you're like most people - your doctor is going to tell you that nothing is wrong with your heart. So then why are these cardiovascular problems occurring? the answer is likely to be hyperventilation. Hyperventilation is also known as" over-breathing, and contrary to popular belief, it's not caused by getting too little air. It's actually caused by breathing out too much carbon dioxide. Your body needs the right balance of carbon dioxide to function. When you breathe too quickly (or breathe in more oxygen than your body needs), your cells are drained of their carbon dioxide and your entire body is forced to work much harder in order to function. Your blood vessels constrict, your brain gets less oxygen, and your heart has to beat extra fast because your blood is slowing down. This what causes the vast majority of the symptoms of a panic attack. And what makes it worse is that hyperventilation makes it feel like you're not getting enough oxygen, even though the reality is that you've taken in too much. Because of that feeling, most people continue to hyperventilate even more in order to try to get a" full breath" only to hyperventilate even further and experience a worsening of the symptoms. When you combine these symptoms with anxiety, you get a constant feeling that your heart is in poor health. The first thing you need to do is practice better breathing. Since hyperventilation causes most of the symptoms, it's important to start breathing more efficiently. Take slow, controlled breaths, and fight the urge to yawn or expand your chest. The moment you start to feel as though a panic attack is coming on, try the following: breathe in slowly, taking at least 5 seconds. Hold for two seconds. Breathe out as though whistling for 7 seconds. Never rush the air out of your body, and try to give yourself time to regain your carbon dioxide level. Don't hold your breath for too long though since holding your breath can cause similar symptoms and may exacerbate your anxiety. Controlling your breathing won't stop your panic attacks, but they should reduce the severity, and for many that alone can help reduce the frequency of panic attacks in the future. Once you've controlled your breathing it's time to combat your overall anxiety, which in turn will decrease your cardiovascular health fears. All the best consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

Hi, yesterday night I was having severe headache and it felt like I had a loss of balance. Before this in the evening, I had an argument with my boyfriend and was really upset. Also, I only had some donuts and maggie noodles for the whole day which was unusual. The headache went away in the morning after sleeping.I also have this numbness in both of my legs almost daily mostly after taking meals. I also have some issues with managing my anger. Can you please tell what could be the problem and if I need to worry?

Hi, What is your age? How is your sleep & appetite? Do you have any other health issue? Kindly give above information so that we can identify if there is anything to worry.There can be multiple causes for headache, may be you were stressed back then that gave you a "tension headache" or you have not been eating enough which can be another cause for feeling weak and low on energy. Secondly if anger is taking a troll on you, I can help you in dealing with your anger. Come back with answers. ALL THE BEST!!
