How to Deal With Acute Stress Disorder

What is Acute Stress Disorder
Acute stress reaction usually happens when some stressful events occur. Acute usually indicates that the symptoms occur quickly and do not last for a long time. Symptoms, such as anxiety and stress occur when exposed to stressful events. It is believed that acute stress disorder occurs after unexpected crisis like traumatic events, serious accidents, domestic violence, sexual assaults or sudden bereavement. Acute stress reactions are commonly seen in people who have experienced major disasters or terrorist incidents.

Symptoms of Acute Stress Reaction
Symptoms of the condition develop very quickly, within minutes to hours in response to a stressful condition. Some of the symptoms are:

  1. Anxiety, mood changes, emotional trauma (ups and downs), poor concentration and sleep, irritability and the desire to be alone
  2. Unpleasant recurrent dreams
  3. Avoiding situations and people who may cause anxiety and stress
  4. Emotionally numb
  5. Nausea, palpitations, headaches, abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing and chest pain are usually caused by the stress hormones like epinephrine.

Management of Acute Stress Disorder
Generally treatment is not required as the symptoms go when the stressful episode is over. Talking to family and friends or understanding the symptoms is helpful. Some people might experience extended symptoms. The following can be done:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This is the therapy where a person can talk to an experienced therapist to understand the patterns and the triggers that charge the problem. The aim of the therapist is to change the way a person thinks and help him avoid the thoughts and be more realistic and calm. Usually when CBT is used for acute stress disorder patients then it is termed as trauma focused CBT.

Counselling: This is usually done when the symptoms are more severe or persistent. It is helpful as it helps to explore the way to deal with the stress and its symptoms. Psychiatrists help by counselling the people and also there are many online resources, which might be helpful.

I tend to forget things fast, earlier I was having sharp memory, what you would suggest?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrateuser. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

I have had this problem for a while but it seems to be getting much worse. I think it is probably due to anxiety but not sure. Whenever I lay down afternoon or at night I can hear and feel my heart beating. It feels as though there is a sledge hammer in my chest pounding back and forth. I can hear and feel every single beat. It makes it impossible to relax and rest. I am now having trouble going to sleep because of it. I am always tired. I experience body aches. I can not do physical activity long enough like my peers.

Dear lybrateuser, -Your problem could be due to anxiety or weakness due to anemia -have a proper balanced , nutritious diet with more of fruits & greenleafy vegetables, whole grains, milk & milk products, beans, nuts, sprouts as they are a good source of energy to keep you going, also have snacks in between main meals to boost your metabolism -do regular exercises like walking, jogging for 30 min ,also do yoga & deep breathing to keep the body & mind healthy & fit -do blood cbc , if hemoglobin is low then take an iron supplement -distress by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby, play an outdoor game -you require a sound sleep for about 7-8 hrs in the night otherwise the body & mind become lethargic & you cannot concentrate well -also get your BP, blood sugar & TSH, T3, T4 done & consult a doctor if not much improvement.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable.  This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Causes
Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.
1.   Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
2.   SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
3.   Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Please understand there are no short cuts or miracle medicines for alcohol addiction. Alcohol 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. Take care.

Because of some personal reasons I have suffered from 5 years of anxiety when I was a teen (from age 15 to 19) and recovered without any medicines. After the anxiety I lived happily for 7 years but after 7 years I have again suffered from 1.5 years of anxiety because of some reasons and again recovered without any medicines. So it was total of 6.5 years of anxiety I suffered. I am not sure about the severity of the anxiety because I don't know how much is severe in case of anxiety. Now I am fine but I have heard constant anxiety causes hippocampus to shrink and now I am worried about my brain that does It has shrinked. I feel my memory and other functions are normal but I am not 100% sure about it. Because I think little bit of shrinkage will not reflect on my memory that much which can be noticed by myself. Please tell me is it possible that after nearly 6.5 years of anxiety my brain didn't shrinked if yes then why it didn't shrinked. And how much time Anxiety or other mental problems like depression takes to shrink the hippocampus. And is the shrinkage permanent or reversible. And if it reversible how can we reverse it.

It is likely that some damage to the hippocampus may have happened but is not of a large magnitude. Much of this can be reversed with treatment. Treatment can be in the form of medicines as well as therapy. Some medicines are powerful than others in reversing this shrinkage. I appreciate your deep knowledge and understanding of the subject, but the knowledge needs to be converted to actions.

Hi. I am male 22. I get scared when I see people now a days. I am suffering from depression. For that I am consulting a psychiatrist now. But I am still not able to come out of this. Specially if it is the opposite sex. I freak out. Please suggest me how do I come out of it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The fear of people has to do with your lack of social development. We are all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. But if there has been poor exposure and skills around people, we become very intimidated. Surprising we are into relationships all through our lives, yet we fear people. In your head you are probably comparing yourself and worrying whether you match up or not. You may feel inferior and inadequate around them. When it comes to a girl it can get very complicated because of the sexual connotation. The depression has a lot to do with this fear. I suggest you do a personality development course and a personal grooming course too. Meet with a counselor for your depression but also deal with your emotions, extensively. The distortion about people and especially girls will also be dealt with as you develop yourself. Go to a gym and do some body building and feel your image develop into a tough and strong young man. I hope you are studying well too? education can boost your self confidence. Do a lot of deep breathing exercises to calm yourself down. The bottom-line is we all want to be loved and to love. Learn this very important need of all humans: love people. Where there is perfect love there is no fear.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Dear, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension means stress and related anxiety. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. You are troubled by your studies. You should learn to study in such a way that study never tenses you. Please consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.

My husband drinks a lot and I am not able to control this. His drinking habit is increasing day by day, he also chews masala and smoking is his another New habit. I have tried everything to convince him to quit all this but nothing worthy. He himself doesn't want to stop this, he promises he will quit but he is drunk the same day. Please help me with this. How can I make him not drink without letting him know it.

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Hi, I know this is distressing. First I wish to inform you that drinking for your husband is NOT a habit. It is an addiction and medical science classifies this as a medical disorder. Do's and don'ts for you: Please don't plead him or make him promise not to drink. It is like pleading a patient of TB to stop coughing. Your entreaties make him feel guilty and the depressed feeling is compensated by drinking again. Masala and smoking are their lame efforts at hiding from you that he is drunk. What then should I do? The best solution so far that I have found is to take help of AlAnon. This is complimentary support group of the world famous AA. AA stands for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a support group that is spread all over the world. Every city and suburb has a group that quietly gathers on one day. Al Anon is for the spouse of person who has the medical condition of Alcohol dependence. In AlAnon you will get to meet women whose husbands had been alcoholics, but have now quit. These women guide you how you should face this problem and they guide you on how to help your husband quit drinking. The other option, which doesn't work well is to have your husband admitted in hospital under a psychiatrist who will put him under a deaddiction treatment regime. Get help from AA, AlAnon or psychiatrist. That is the way to help your husband and your family. You will require courage and perseverance. My best wishes to you for strength, wisdom and God's luck.

I am using tobacco from few day. At night time if I won't wash my teeth and sleep does it effect my health.

I am using tobacco from few day. At night time if I won't wash my teeth and sleep does it effect my health.
when you don't brush at night, foods accumulation on the teeth causes plaque. This will lead to gum infection and tooth decay. in addition to this tobacco causes infection in whole mouth, ulcers, bad breath, leading ultimately to cancer. so quit tobacco immediately. brush twice daily. use a mouthwash twice daily after brushing. eat balanced and healthy diet. maintain proper oral hygiene.

Dear doctor, You are requested to kindly recommend supplements for production of new neurons in the hippocampus of brain as that is the only center of regeneration of brain. Those supplements if cross blood brain barrier will help cure schizophrenia patients. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Supplements cannot make a real difference or make neurons grow as you expect and you can try Mecobalamin .Though scientists have long known that new brain cells are able “enhance learning” – they never thought that “learning” could actually cause the birth of new brain cells… that is, until recently. In recent animal studies, researchers have found that there was a direct relationship between “learning” and the survival rate of newly-birthed brain cells. When researchers taught certain rodents a wide-variety of cognitive tasks which involved a wide-range of brain areas – scientists found that the more the animal “learned” – the more new neurons were able to survive in the hippocampus. Scientists have made it clear that “learning” can increase the presence of new neurons in the brain. Brain cells that are born in the hippocampus, which normally die off, are literally “rescued” by “learning” experiences. There is still plenty of research being conducted in this area and not all sources agree. However, your best bet is to keep your brain power boosted and your mind sharp. Always try to learn something new! Meditation has always thought to have been beneficial for the brain. Recent compelling evidence from scientific researchers at Yale, Harvard, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology revealed that meditation can allow us to “grow bigger brains.” Though this isn’t the same thing as neurogenesis, meditation could very well be an activity that boosts the birth rate of neurons. Researchers also discovered that meditators literally had an altered-physical brain structure compared to non-meditators. Brain scanning technology [i.e. MRIs] showed that meditation boosted thickness of brain structure dealing with attention, sensory input, and memory functions. The thickening was found to be more noticeable in adults than younger individuals. It’s interesting because the same sections of our cortex that meditation thickens, tend to get thinner as we age.
