And the remedies to overcome depression.
Please help.
Hello, There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers. For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause. take Kali phos 30 ch , 5 drops once daily. If your BP is normal then take Ginseng 1x, 1 tab once daily after meals. Revert me after 10 days.

I have lost my brother. Last year. Since the day he has left. Life has changed. I study. I forget things. I don't even remember a thing a rear 2 mins before. I can't concentrate. If I try I start feeling irritated. I just don't feel like speaking to people. Have frequent headaches. And I just try being alone almost all the time. People around me are not getting it. Its not my over thinking. Its something else. Its something which is consistent in my case since my childhood but got even worse after he left. I don't know how to take it now. I just feel like giving up on everything. These mood swings. I feel soo dumb. I just feel lost. Please tell me what to do.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I am a 19 year old virgin boy. I often get sexual thoughts and whenever I study or think or see even a footage of something sexual, I get aroused and do something which is not good for my health.

A 19 years old boy who is having frequent sexual thoughts is not at all unusual. If you do masterbation, it is not also unusual. Do one thing, allow those thoughts, don't try to resist. Because resistance creates importance. Once the importance gets weightage it will bother you. Ignorance is the best policy. Take an example, suppose you are standing in a bank of mud river, you're watching the streams of mud river, but it won't affect you, unless you plunged into it. Thoughts are just like this river. They come and pass on its on. Whether you plunged into it or not, the decision is absolutely yours.

Anish what is happening to u everybody goes through it.It is normal due to exams any body gets into stress it always seems preparation done is not adequate and from there link of thoughts turns out into viscious cycle of negativity and person feels anxiious and to relief anxiety u destress with mastrubation..

Always experiencing palpation on my heart during the mid of the night. Waking up from nightmare, throat feeling sore, feet feels on fire, stomach rumbling, and neck feels tight! Especially during a cold weather day, or after I am extremely tired during the day time. To me it's more like a heart attack, but I've even appeared in the emergency room, they told me my heart looked OK. This pattern has been repetitively occurred like a myth for four years without an accurate diagnose. All I can say is that I self- diagnose myself as Chronic fatigue syndrome for 4 years too. Could you tell me what is wrong with me (chances of anxiety is very low), I'm waiting for a more reasonable answer!

To rule whether it is from heart or not, you will need a Stress Echo and for the palpitations a Electrophysiology Study, in this we study your heart rhythm to see if you are having any abnormally fast or slow heart beat and if we find any we can treat it. A mere ECg will not be able to diagnose all this. So my advise is that instead of self diagnosing yourself get your self properly evaluated. Get your TSH, lipid profile done as well.

I am 70 yrs old and suffering parkinson's, beside this I am loosing my weight ie from 72 kg to 49 kg since last 10 yrs. please advise.

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
It is common in elderly people. Especially in parkinson's, since they eat less and are not able to exercise to maintain muscle bulk. If you have not lost > 10% of your original weight in past 6 months, then do not worry about it. Nothing much can be done. You can try as much exercise and physiotherapy as possible to maintain muscle bulk. If you have lost more than the above said amount, then you have to undergo detailed evaluation to identify whether any other illnesses are present.

Addiction - How It Affects You?

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Addiction - How It Affects You?

Addiction can be considered as a behavioural change where a craving for something specific intensifies to such an extent that the consequences are ignored. Addiction controls the brain by diverting it in such a way that it registers only pleasure and does not give any importance to other standard drives like motivation and learning. In general, breaking up an addiction is difficult, but it is not impossible and with strong determination, addiction can be broken.

Effects of Addiction
In general, people are subjected to addiction will not have self-control over what they do. If addiction is not treated or diagnosed on time, it may reach harmful proportions. Addiction is not only related to consumption of alcohol and drugs. It may include other habits too, that cannot be controlled. Sometimes even having a particular craving for a fruit or a vegetable can be termed as an addiction. Among other things, the most harmful can be the usage of drugs, sexual pleasures and other effects that over a period of time can become uncontrollable.

How a person can get addicted?
A human brain registers all types of pleasures in the same way they register a joy from a psychoactive drug, sexual encounter, monetary rewards or a satisfying meal. When any of these things happen, the human brain releases a neurotransmitter dopamine in the nerve cells. If these habits become regular, the enzymes will be released in high quantities leading to the addiction problem.

Drugs usage leads to addiction within a short period of time. Consumption of almost all types of drugs, starting from nicotine to heroin leads to a powerful surge of dopamine in the nucleus accumbency leading to high addiction. Addiction is not exactly a disease, but it is a condition that can occur at any age. It is likely to occur more during the young age where the required maturity is yet to be gained. So it is advisable to be careful during your adolescent period as this is the time when you are more vulnerable.

Various medical tests can diagnose addiction. People subjected to addiction can be treated easily by proper medications and therapies. If addiction is in the initial stage, it can be quickly addressed by counselling process, and if it is severe, then the counselling sessions along with certain medications are needed to curb the addiction habit. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I have a national concert (a series of shows) in less than a weeks time. I have been practising hard for the same suddenly as the day is approaching my voice is sounding more and more strained and even flat at times. I cannot sing in the scale I started with and with even an hour of singing my voice starts to feel sore and tends to break. There is no vibrato at all. I have tried gurgling with salt water and also tried taking steam. What can I do to keep my voice in place for the show next week?

My daughter aged 9 yrs is having a low memory power and forgets answers at the exam hall. Please advise me the ways of boosting the memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
She is probably having some anxiety during exams for various reasons. At this age, for her to experience exam fear means that there may be very high expectations from the parents, or she has a nervous disposition, or the portions are too much for her mental level, or there is some stress in the home. This is an age when she must enjoy school, and have a lot of time for play. In fact the very idea of doing away with exams for children is to reduce this kind of pressure. There is also a suggestion that children should not be detained in class in the early years of schooling. These are all measures to return childhood to our children and make life a lot easier. So I suggest that even if the school has these exams let your child perform at her pace and convenience. These pressures will tell on her psychologically and emotionally, later. Help her to read a lot and give her time to play. As time goes by you can work on improving her memory by reducing all the stress around her as much as possible. In the meantime get her puzzles, jigsaws, and little memory cards all with a play-way approach to make it easy for her and also to improve memory. Talk to her teacher about what is going on with her in school and she will enlighten you with some useful information.

It is not a serious problem. We all have the same tendency to behave like your mother in varying degrees. Some people are obsessed to behave to a larger extent. My suggestions are 1. Let her express as fully as possible the bad situstions she likes to talk about, by encouraging her showing interest and asking questions related to the topic, and let her write the same on a paper, but do not forget to draw conclusions from the above processes and to ask what are the benefits of spending some quality time in it instead of spending in some other positive activities. 2. Make her learn and engage in new a skill or hobby that she most enjoys which distract her from such obsessional behaviours.

Dear 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.
