Dear lybrate user, your serum uric acid level is higher than normal level. Protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

I am 48 year old woman who is working in the govt. I feel like I have been deserted by all my relatives, including my brothers, sisters and parents. I am married and I have a 18 year old girl studying in her 12th std. 4 years before there was a problem in the family. From that day on which I have been prevented in talking to my relatives. As long as I am in my workplace I feel comfortable, but when I come home my mind gets disturbed, as this makes me to feel deserted and therefore intend to fight with my husband and sometimes yell at my daughter too. I am not visited by anybody from my relatives side for the past 5 years and if they intend to come and when I discuss about this like people are likely to come to see me that we end end in a fight. This disturbs my daughter too in her studies. His humiliation and abusive language makes me tense but I am undergoing this pain mainly for the sake of my daughter. I do not know what and how to handle? Today also I felt like crying therefore I closed the door and cried loudly without the knowledge of my daughter as she would be upset. Its like I am in a cage with nobody to talk as my husband too pulls up a fight majority of the days. Can you give me a solution for this?

Hi lybrate-user, I understand your feeling. First thing is you need to share your feelings in detail with a counselor so that you will feel lighter. Feelings of hate will create lot of stress in the mind. At home plan your time so that it engages in productive way. Yoga, laughter therapy, gardening, hobbies, watching funny movies, talking to a friend on general topics etc will help to reduce stress.

Your sexual problem is partner specific. However it is important to resolve your past issues and certain thoughts that probably still hover around in your mind when you and your wife become intimate. I woud suggest you to consult a sexual counsellor and psychiatrist for help and counselling. You may consult me fro nay queries and assistance online.

Hii doctor. I generally loose my confidence in front of elders while explaining anything. I loose my concentration. I start stammering in front of these people. But in case of normal talks my speaking is good. Please tell me what can I do to overcome this.

Hello lybrate-user. For the Treatment of Stammering Or Dysfluency you need the help of a Speech Therapist. As the cause of dysfluency and lack of confidence in different situations has to be analysed. Remember it's you who can help yourself with support of a Speech Therapist.

Social Anxiety - How Can You Control It?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS, DNB - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Social Anxiety - How Can You Control It?

Social anxiety disorder or social anxiety phobia is characterised by an extreme and often, unrealistic fear of social situations and scenarios. A patient suffering from this condition will usually be ridden with self-confidence and a sense of intense nervousness, as if he or she is being constantly watched and scrutinised. It may be caused by biological, psychological or environmental factors. Let us find out ten ways to getting over the same.

  1. CBT: CBT or cognitive behavioural therapy is a form of talk therapy that allows a patient to speak with a psychologist or psychiatrist, so as to find out the root cause of the condition. This form of theory helps in arriving at ways of overcoming the feelings of nervousness in social situations.
  2. Practice going out with smaller groups: It is said that sticking to small and intimate groups can help in overcoming the hesitation and self-esteem issues that many of these patients feel. Once they are comfortable, they can take on larger groups.
  3. Medication: Antidepressants and beta blockers are sometimes prescribed along with other kinds of medication, for patients who are unable to control their intense anxiety in social situations.
  4. Face the fear: A little introspection will help you arrive at the reason or root cause of your anxiety. This can help in facing the fears and tackling them. You can talk about these fears with someone.
  5. Unhelpful thinking: Tackle unhelpful thinking where you imagine people are looking at you in a certain way because they must be judging you. Tell yourself over and over until you believe that it is not true.
  6. Focus on yourself: The key is to focus on yourself instead of getting hooked on to what others may be thinking about you. This will help in banishing the negative thoughts.
  7. Be in the present: Practice deep breathing or meditation to bring yourself back to the present every time you begin to think about what people may be thinking about you when you are in a social scenario.
  8. Lifestyle changes: Drinking less and not smoking at all can also help in the better production of hormones that will help in balanced thinking, especially in anxiety-ridden situations.
  9. Group therapy: Much like CBT, group therapy gives you space and platform to voice your fears and anxiety. The advantage of this kind of therapy is that you can also hear the stories and fears of other people, which will give you some point of reference when it comes to overcoming your own fears.
  10. Communication skills: You can go to a counsellor or get soft skills training for better communication skills, which will help you improve your social interactions. This, in turn, will give you much confidence to deal with the world outside.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Myth and fact about Depression

Psychiatrist,
Myth and fact about Depression

Myth: depression is not a real illness.

Fact: depression is a medical illness; a health problem related to the brain and is the major cause of disability. Research has shown the involvement of abnormal brain activities in patients with depression; hence, it should not be confused with ordinary sadness.

Depression is different for everyone, but just like any illness, it can get better with the right help and support. Your doctor is the most trusted ally for treating depression that can help you to lead a normal, healthy and active life.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
