Your complain sounds like a symptom of ocd, obsessive compulsive disorder. Obsessions are automatic, unwanted, intrusive, repetitive and anxiety provoking thoughts. Usually there is a pattern, like in your case the thoughts come before an activity. There are medicines available to reduce these thoughts. You should visit a psychiatrist. There are counseling techniques also that will help. It is a treatable condition. Don't delay the treatment.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

It's not like that you can't take both medication simultaneously. But there should be some reason to combine medications. If you have optimum dose of one drug than only you can go for combination therapy for same problem.

Hi lybrate-user, anxiety is often an overwhelming condition, and when the mind is overwhelmed it can do some very unusual things. One of these is known as depersonalization, which is a symptom of anxiety that often fuels more anxiety and more depersonalization. Depersonalization is when your mind feels divorced from your own sense of self. It's when you are essentially overly self-aware to the point of feeling as though you're not in your own body. It's a consciousness that makes it feel like you're floating outside of yourself and that your actions are not your own. Depersonalization is a common symptom of panic disorder, and may occur with other anxiety disorders as well. The most likely reason that depersonalization occurs is as a coping mechanism for your brain. Your brain can get extremely stressed by your emotions. It's not just your thoughts and symptoms - it's the physical brain itself. The link between your consciousness and your thoughts is physical and mental. So most likely, the brain creates depersonalization disorder as a way of experiencing less stress. It's likely that it's shutting down certain parts of the brain and disconnecting yourself from the emotions so that it doesn't experience as much tension, despite the fact that depersonalization often creates its own anxiety. Another possible cause is simply because anxiety can lead to hyperawareness. Generally this occurs with physical issues. For example, some people feel they have a swollen tongue during an anxiety attack, but the tongue isn't actually swollen. Instead, the mind has over-focused on the feelings of the tongue, causing it to start to feel unnatural and" larger. It's possible that a similar issue is happening with consciousness, where the mind focuses so much on the way you process information that it becomes over-processed and starts to feel unreal. Finally, during anxiety attacks, neurotransmitters are often firing at a rapid rate. It's possible that these neurotransmitters are activating or de-activating parts of your mind that create this dissociative state. Ince depersonalization occurs as a result of intense anxiety, the best thing you can do is try to decrease the intensity and keep yourself from experiencing further anxiety. Keep the following in mind: be okay with depersonalization depersonalization can be very frightening, but it's not dangerous. If you start to feel it occurring, don't try to fight it. Just wait it out. Fighting it won't solve anything, and may even make your anxiety worse. You can remind yourself that depersonalization may be a scary event, but it has no short or long term consequences once it's over. Breathe efficiently depersonalization occurs at the height of anxiety attacks, and one of the issues that tends to make anxiety attacks severe is hyperventilation, which reduces blood flow to the brain and causes symptoms that may result in intense stress. Slow down your breathing dramatically. Breathe in for 5 seconds, hold for 2, breathe out for 7. Any time you feel like a panic attack may be coming, breathe slower to prevent some of the worst symptoms. Distractions for reality those with depersonalization are usually aware they're in a dreamlike state. They tend to keep everything to themselves, resulting in them withdrawing into more and more of an over-conscious and dreamlike state. Give someone a call or talk to those around you. It can be hard to admit that you have this anxiety/depersonalization problem, but the problem does not get any easier if you try to keep everything to yourself and stay inside of your own head. Go jogging jogging is a natural cure for anxiety, and also a wake up call to reality. Running can be hard when you have anxiety since rapid heartbeat tends to lead to further panic attacks, so walking is an acceptable but less effective alternative. Walking and jogging involve so many different senses that it's hard for your mind to zone out from reality. Depersonalization is not dangerous, so the key is to learn ways to reduce the extent of your panic attacks and your anxiety. No matter what, you'll still need to address your overall anxiety levels so that you decrease the likelihood of experiencing depersonalization. Consult a psychologist for its management.

I am a 17 year old student. I used to be academically good, but since about a year now, I find it impossible to concentrate while studying and it's a big issue. My symptoms resemble a subtype of ADHD though I can't be having that. Besides inability to focus while studying I have completely lost sincerity, self control and have developed a really casual attitude, all hampering my studies. I feel that these symptoms also affect my life in other ways. Time is really scarce now so please suggest a solution fast.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and have interest in your studies too. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. You must be absolutely sure that you are not bored because of these influences to make a radical decision and quit studies. You will regret later and then the time cannot be turned back. In case you have problems with concentration here are a few guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too. Whatever happens, do not rush your decision and make it with your parents involved and some close teachers who know you well.

Life is enjoyable if one has positive attitude. It is also very important to have realistic expectations from life, from self and from others. No one can have" ideal" life style. If you have realistic expectations, there is lesser chance for disappointments. Please learn to focus on the plus points or the strengths, in every aspect of your life. For example, you need to understand that you are lucky, you have a job and you also have a wife. About the job you are not satisfied because your salary is less. Try to analyse why it is so, try to negotiate your salary with your seniors or learn some extra skills so that you can demand more salary. See if you can start some part time business, agency etc, which will give you extra income. About the expenses, decide your priorities then plan your finances properly. About your wife, try to have open communication with her. Understand that her ideas, needs, values and expectations are going to be different from yours. Please convey your ideas, needs and expectations to her. You both need to talk to each other about your feelings and also need to" listen" to each other. This will help in improving your relations with your wife. I can imagine, your work stress might be making you tired and dull. Try to go for some exercise or yoga/pranayam. It will give a healthy outlet to your stress. Once your stress is released you will be able to think rationally and not feel sad about every life situation. Life is a challenge for almost every other person. We need to make a choice - either look at brighter side of life and enjoy life along with its challenges or keep complaining about the things that are not available to us and waste your prime youth. If you can change your perception about life, it will be easier to live. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.

Hi Doctor, I'm 23 year old male. I'm really concerned on the below mentioned issues. Please help me. 1. I'm worried about my weight. It's only 50 and I'm very thin. 2.1 year ago I completed my degree of b. Com and now working in mnc in night shift from 1 year. 3. My shift timings is at 3: 30pm to 12: 30am. I reach home by 1: 30 am. 4. I get lots of sweats from my hand and leg palms and I think even this is making me thin. 5. I'm not getting urge /desire to eat food correctly may be because of no sleep on timely basis. 5. I always feel to masturbate and I do it many times a day. I request you to suggest me what routine I have to follow in night shift and what do's and don't? I want to improve my physic and look good by gaining some wait. (does consuming nutrigain powder help and is it safe)? I need to know what I can do so that I feel urge to eat on time to time.

Hi lybrate-user, first of all - you can have nutrigain its safe. Secondly, you should exercise daily in the morning- some kind of workout in gym or aerobics or brisk walk, jogging etc. Thirdly, eat every two hours- every two hours fill your stomach but with something healthy like dry fruits or a plain fruit - banana or apple. I know its tough but try to follow it. Tell me do you feel stressed or some kind of anxiety that can be related to the sweat you experience in hands and legs but do not worry that does not contribute to weight loss but for that you have to keep yourself hydrated and have enough water. You can have some syrup that increases hunger. Ask for it. Make a routine and stick to it. Sleep on time and get up on same time daily unless a routine is made it will be hard for body clock to adjust every time. You are in office for good 12 hours-7 hours you must be sleeping, in remaining hours I wonder how many times you masturbate. Masturbation is a problem unless you are feeling any difficulties. To properly channelize your energy you need to get productive, sweat it out in gym and get your lifestyle sorted. Eat more protein and if you are non veg - fish. Consult for any query. All the best.

If this is only ordinary fever, take homoeo medicine belladonna 30 (6 to 8 pills) --3 times (hourly) in the morning and arsenicum alb 30---3 times (hourly) in the evening.

Hi Lybrate user in Ayurveda anxiety, panic attacks are diagnose under manoroga, mann durbalta is major cause of these reaction. Frist you have to understand that when we face any incidence and it impact in our mind goes deep it makes a psychological impression in our unconscious mind and then a neuropathway (negative belief) is created and patient is bound to react when this pathway is activated by any incidence or thoughts process. Avoiding these situation can relieve you but until and unless you not release those negative psychic impression from your unconscious mind these reaction will not cured. So I suggest you to adopt the way of meditation so that by practice these meditation when you become able to access you unconscious mind you will be able to release those negative psychic impression, but it will need your hard work and attention for this approach any spiritually inlighted master. Till then I suggest you to use some Ayurveda tips. 1-take ashwagandha churna one gram twice a day. 2-jatamansi churna 5 gram twice a day. 3-use mahanarayan oil on your head in night. 4-use salmon omega 3 one capsule daily in morning. 5-triphala churna 5-10 gram every night. Pranayam effectively controls the mind so every day do anuloom vilom 15 minutes 3-5 times slowly when you feel anxious. Spiritual ritual are important to strength your mind (eshwar pranidhan). Chant Om mantra on agya chakra, crown chakra, throat chakra 10 minutes each everyday morning and evening. For panic attack keep your clonazepam with you for emergency in initial phase. For further assistance feel free to consult me. Cure is possible. Your feedback is appreciated. Wishing you a healthier life.
