Dear, You seem to be having many medical questions because you are suffering from either generalized anxiety disorder or somatisation or somatoform disorder or eating disorder or other psychiatric disorder. Please stop reading all about the various changes in anxiety and stress and project it on yourself. Normal stress is managed by release of stress hormones by the body to cope up with it. They are NORMAL, beneficial way of dealing with stress. The above disorders are abnormal release of stress hormones and its effect on many bodily functions including HDL and LDL metabolism. The above disorders are NOT diagnosed by blood tests. Please consult a psychiatrist and take treatment both as tablets and as talk therapy.

How can I remove my smoking habit? I am feeling torture by my own smoking habits. I do not want to do smoke. Per day I take approx 8 cigarette. please help me dear Doctor to remove smoking habits.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Hello lybrate user. Yes definitely you can quit smoking completely. Smoking cigarettes for long time is nicotine addiction and it gets difficult to quit smoking. Usually people start smoking with friends just for experimentation and later for enjoyment and still later to relieve stress in life, but what they forget is that gradually smoking becomes a compulsion in their life and then whenever a stressful situation arises they smoke. Even the previously pleasure giving food items or activities are no more pleasurable to the same extent. You start spending more and more time in obtaining and enjoying smoking cigarettes. We have medications which decreases craving and helps in quitting smoking completely. Along with medications making simple changes in lifestyle and bringing about stress management in life can have miraculous effects in quitting smoking addiction. I hope that you quit smoking in the near future and resume a healthy life. For help feel free to contact.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions always arise because of irritation, disappointment or events which were negative and not expected. But you should understand, these are common. You cannot change situations or circumstances. But we can always alter our perception and behavior about what is happening. This the core of anger management. I suggest online anger management training. Take care.

One of my friend is addicted to smoking. He is trying hardly to quit smoking but he is nt able to do it. So I just want to know what are the simplest things he can do to quit smoking.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks the changes.

Never. Sleeping pills are also addictive and after some time you start taking both together and it is more dangerous. You should take deaddiction therapy. You need will power to stop drinking. Take care.

Dear , anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible.

Best way is to go to the ex girl friend and say sorry to her for the unnatural sexual relationship. Anal sex. You are just feeling the the attachment due to sexual feelings. Once you feel and express sorry, you will start feeling better. If it doesn't help then connect me directly online or in person.

I am in depression due to financial and job problems as well of childrens future what I should do.
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.

Dear questioner, my advice will be to taper off the drugs gradually in consultation with your psychiatrist. It will need some doing as withdrawal and physical and psychological dependence on them. I hold the view that drugs (anti-depressants/anti convulsants) are chemicals and most of its exact mechanism still unknown to the experts as well. They are like necessary evils, they will not cure you, but act as palliatives which actually with their hosts of physical and mental adverse effects will worsen esp lithium. Bipolar disorder has a strong genetic component and predisposition to it. My advice would be to enjoy the high or hyperactive state and not try to see it as apart of disease. (only avoidance of physical harm to be seen) and in the low or depression period, not fight the period, trying to get over with it. This struggle intensifies the depression we all have highs and lows, not with the same intensity though and it is due to expectation or an ideal which we are desperate to chase. How should one be. Is the one doing the mischief. Since and till we are chasing happiness, so long we will be unhappy. This is my genuine view which is backed by strong conviction. It is difficult. But think over it. Do what you feel like. Medicines /some medicines or no medicines. But enjoy your highs as much as you can and let your physician always be in the loop if you wish to taper the medicines. Take care.

Sometimes you may not be aware of stress because it has not yet manifest itself in any obvious or disturbing way. Your disturbed sleep itself can be a cause, or concern for stress because you have grossly disturbed your biorhythm. I do not know how long you have been suffering this kind of disturbance but if you have developed a pattern during exams and now find it difficult to get out of it, you may have a new sleep habit. At this age there is also a concern that you are looking at a problem in some manner or fashion that needs attention. This may then precipitate an impending condition that is seeking a resolution, for the last time. Whatever the situation, you may still follow some good habits that will help induce sleep, even if it takes care of the symptom only. There are 86 diseases that are directly affected by lack of sleep i.e. less than 6 hours per night. You must talk to a professional and deal with the stress. Yoga, meditation, and stress management exercises with definitely help. You must also do vigorous exercise every day, whether you get sleep or not. You should wake up at a uniform time every day, even if you don’t get sleep. You could sleep in the afternoon but try not to exceed 20 minutes to catch up with lost sleep, and that too only if necessary. Ideally, it is better not to sleep during the day at all. Even if you do not get sleep get to bed at a uniform time like 10.30 and just lie down and read some non-stimulating material. In the lying down position the body tends to regress to a childlike state and will induce sleep. Do not get up to switch off the light, and so you need to arrange for a bed lamp that can be put off at a stretch of a hand. Do not take alcohol, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. before going to bed. A warm glass of milk before bedtime improves sleep for various reasons. Have dinner early and always make it a pure carbohydrate meal that can be had with any vegetables. Make the room as dark as possible but warm and cozy. Block out all forms of light entering the room through windows. The room must have reasonable cross-ventilation. There must not be any LED lights nearby your bed. Reduce all kinds of sounds around you: light music may be put on if it induces sleep for you with the ‘sleep’ function on. In rare cases you could watch TV in a lying position and switch off when you feel drowsy. There are some odors that could stimulate you and prevent sleep from happening; kindly examine that – this includes perfumes, soap scents, and even laundry detergents. Check out if a warm or cold bath induces sleep for you, and do that before retiring. If you have exhausted yourself through exercise, you will find it easier to relax into a stupor. Contemplate on calm and relaxing thoughts while in bed: decontaminate your mind from all the stresses of the day before going to bed. You could acquire a recording of gradual relaxation and guided relaxation routines. Sleep with your head facing North, and do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. Sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Try these for now and if these fail you must meet with a counselor and work out other matters that may be causing the insomnia.

Hello lybrate user. Ya definitely having headache or not able to bear sunlight may be suggestive of eye related problems, but the rest other signs do not go with it. At your age having lack of concentration, forgetting things, lack of concentration, constant tiredness with having headache or head heaviness may be signs of depression. You need to get evaluated for the same by a psychiatrist and if there are other signs too like persistent pervasive low mood and lack of interest, you may be started on anti-depressants with expecting good amount of improvement in a month of start of medications. Hoping the best for you. Take care.
