Dear, physical illnesses is common and becoming anxious about such illnesses is more common. You should understand yourself. There is no use worrying. Worrying deteriorates your physical condition also. I think two or more health related counseling should clear your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling. Take care.

Dear madam, As you rightly identified, the key to resolution of grief is ventilation, that is share your burden with somebody trusted such as a friend, relative, doctor or therapist. the other thing to remember is rather than reducing your interaction with others, you need to increase it and meet people. Give more time for your hobbies. Do not neglect food and water. Take eight hours of sleep but then get out of the bed and dont keep lying down. DO this for a few days and you will feel better. If problems persist, the option of medicines is always available.

You are already having grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.66 kg/m2. Plus if your hypothyroidism is not in control, that will add to weight gain and depression. You have not mentioned about current tsh level. If hypothyroidism is well controlled then tsh should be between 3 to 4 mill units/ml. If not all the symptoms of hypothyroidism which include weight gain, aniety and depression will continue to remain and even increase. So please check tsh levels and come back. Thanks.

Hi, as you mentioned these symptoms are of depression. In depression such things happens like mood remains low, interest in day to day activities decreases, irritability, anger outburst, pessimistic thought about future, suicidal ideation, appetite and sleep disturbed. If all such happens continuously for a minimum of 2 week then please visit a psychiatrist. You need treatment for that and by doing so you definitely get help. Depression is a treatable condition it will improve on medication. So do not wast your time and plan to visit a psychiatrist. Best of luck.

General Physician,
YOu have to check for the cause by a blood CBC and TSH . I can give study tips 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Either you are under some stress which you are not aware of or you have disturbed your biorhythm by forcing it into a new pattern. If it is the former, kindly seek some counseling. If not please follow the recommendations mentioned below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear Doc.

I think you must take her to a counselor soon. This is actually a transition phase when she is moving over from childhood to adulthood: sometimes she will feel and want to be treated like an adult, and at other times she will feel and act like a little child. She will also think that she knows what she is doing but that is an immature bluff. Still do not disagree with her outright. Let her feel that he is right but discuss the plans and decisions as though you will be going along with it but very artfully bring it back to some rationality yet make it appear that it was her decision and that it was after all right! She may be having a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which fortunately has a duration of two years, only. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which she has no control: she will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. Then if she has unresolved childhood issues (which I suspect), they will compound the situation and fuel her uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that she herself may not be aware of all this. In her case, she is manifesting a lot of anger: do you know of any reason from her childhood that may have contributed to unresolved anger? Go to a counselor and discuss these matters over and get support to take care of her. Now what else can you do? The parents need to become her best friends i.e. you must always ally with her and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment she hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. So the parents must make her feel wanted and loved and must never reject or neglect her. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with her, openly. Never give her anything without there being some negotiations – barter with her; you give her something in return for some compliance from her. There has to be some ground rules and established boundaries in your house. Let it appear like it is her choice to comply. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don’t make decisions for her: offer alternatives that help her make responsible choices. I recommend that you take her for career counseling and determine her aptitude for academic pursuits. There is no harm to tell her that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to her, and afraid that you cannot handle her. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to her. Remember that she is seeking attention by these means. Do not deprive her of it. In fact listen to her arguments, and see where she is coming from and get into that frame of reference to understand her. She may be frustrated with you, if you insist in having it your way, when the world is undergoing rapid changes every day. Try to understand her. Both parents must be on the same page and not argue about her in her presence. Let her know that she is dealing with a united front and that she cannot play games pitching one parent against another. But she must always feel love and acceptance. Two years will fly in a jiffy, and she will settle down very amicably. The way you deal with her, you could either escalate the situation, because you think and know that you are older and stronger; or you could facilitate a youngster to tide over this situation with great resolve and character formation, by being her best friend during this period of strife and turmoil.

Hello Doctor, recently two of my relatives have gone through divorce due to which even my elder sister is sceptical to get married. What are the possible reasons behind failure of marriages in recent times and how to work on them? Please suggest in detail. Thanks, in advance.

Dear lybrate user, I understand your concern. A couple has the most intimate relationship. When two people get married, they are not aware that the other person is coming from a completely different background and a different family and hence is likely to have a different perception about everything in life. Unfortunately, both - the husband and the wife, think that their own perceptions, values and beliefs is" the correct" way and the other person is having wrong perception and values etc. They both need to understand each other's perceptions and also should be able to communicate to each other. Unfortunately, again, none of our academic courses teach us effective communication. Because of this, both the partners fail to communicate their needs, expectations, likes-dislikes, views etc to their spouse in assertive way. Many times both think that the spouse should" understand" their feelings, which does not happen. Now a days most of girls are working and they don't want shoulder the additional responsibility of being a mother and a cook, sweeper, cleaner etc at home. The times have changed but our society's outlook towards women has not changed. Our society still expects a wife to be very submissive and not to have her own rights or likes. Unless our society changes its views towards women, we will have problems in keeping the marriages intact. One more major reason for failed marriages in our country, is, undue interference by the parents (both sides). The parents need to respect the couple's privacy and they need to be within their boundaries. Because of our traditional upbringing even the husband/wife think that they still need to listen to their parents in every respect, which aggrivates the matter. To solve this problem" pre-marital" counselling is the best solution. A counsellor can help both (husband-wife), to understand their own personalities, their respective needs, values and expectations. Even the in-laws should have pre=marital counselling so that they also know their respective roles and responsibilities. Actually every boy and girl in our country needs to have pre-marital counselling even before they decide to marry a particular person. This will help them to find a suitable match for themselves and thus reducing future problems.

From my side. I will suggest you to do yoga and meditation daily. It will help you to feel relief for some stressful situations and energize you. And if that also does not work. Then consult a good skilled homoeopath for it. Because mentally disturbed patients are best treated with homoeopathic medications.

You need counselling more than probably medication for your psychiatry problems. I can see that you have used lots of medical terms in your question. You might be doing searching in the internet. I feel that you are not satisfied with what is happening in your life right now. Epilepsy might have made to compromise a few things in your life. Remember epilepsy medicine can be stopped if fits don't occur for a considerable period of time as decided by your doctor. Many patients will not have any recurrence after stopping. However counselling is required to correct some of the faulty thinking you are having now. Once your thought process is changed you will find the positives of life and will be able to enjoy it.
