On 4th April 2015 I got an Epilepsy attack in morning around 5 A.M. My wife told me that whole body got folded and after Epilepsy I was feeling vomiting issues. After 5 days I realized that some sound is coming from my mind or Ear I do not know but it is coming continuously. Till then I have contacted many Neuro /ENT .Some one says its Tinnitus and I have started medicine. Epilepsy : Encorate Chrono 500 MG two times (Regularly). For Tinnitus : Bilovas and rejunex cd. Some of my friends have told that you are not taking correct medicine for Epilepsy so you are hearing this sound as an side effect. I am not sure because all 3 Neuro doctors have prescribed me same medicine for Epilepsy. Kindly suggest me that if this can be the case or not. I am really confused and getting depressed / anxiety issues now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a complex disorder of the brain which has various psychiatric components in it. Anxiety and depression are common. Encorate chrono is no doubt a very good medication for epilepsy. But i hope you have investigated yourself in detail for the first attack of epilepsy at your age. Epilepsy due to some reversible and treatable cause should always be sought for complete cure. Sounds from your mind/ ear need evaluation because sounds in tinnitus are peculiar and can hardly be confused with anything else.

You are into depression. Go and meet a psychiatrist and get some medication for the same. At the same time talk to a counselor about your problems. I particularly think that you are not expressing anger appropriately: this can cause the depression and all the aches and pains, which are psychosomatic in nature. It appears that your anger is simmering on the surface itching to come out. If you did nothing about it, it will one day burst out uncontrollably and cause more damage to relationships, which are already looking quite fragile. In time you will not respect your life and these suicidal thoughts will plague you. Just express your anger. Warn people that you need to vent out your emotion and that you are not necessarily interested in a response but purely wanting to move the feeling out. Understanding people will give you support. Now this is a lesson for you to always deal with your feelings by expression.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Emotions are part of body's defense mechanism to overcome some internal and external threats. You cannot just forgo them. Once you become experienced in your life, automatically the intensity of the emotions come down. Don't worry. Be proud that you have emotions because emotions help you clear your mind of stress. Consult a psychologist

Hi mam, he is in shock he will take time to resonate with reality. Best thing right now would be to give him some time for realization. If still it persists I suggest you both to go to a psychologist for family therapy.

Dear lybrate-user, anger is an emotion. You are 21 and your adult hormones are the basic causes for your anger. You may practice yoga and meditation to control your anger. Consult a psychologist online or in person for meditation techniques. Take care.

To curb your sexual desires, you have to do more to think less. Channel all those feelings into something that will keep your mind off sex and then, get busy. You can read books, go out with friends, watch movies, learn new things etc. Transfer your urges into something you have always wanted to do. At the end of the day, you would have successfully managed not to think about sex and you will also be satisfied at the things you did. If one of those hobbies trigger a sexual response in you and you are feeling aroused, do not masturbate. Think of non-sexual images or take a long walk.-----------------------Engage your body in exercise that will keep you busy and keep you from feeling frustrated from not having sex. You can jog in the morning, swim or hit the gym. You can also try yoga and other exercise that will help stimulate both mind and body.-----------------------------------Only few can drink heavily or do drugs without losing control of themselves. Stay away from alcohol and drugs if they will cause you to do something you will regret when you are sober. If you must drink, drink with friends you can trust and you know will watch over you.------------------------------In order to control your sexual urge, you should enter into a relationship with no sex. If you wonder what you both will do without the sex, there are countless things couples can do to bond like going on a field trip together, taking up a joint hobby, learning new things together. Far from what most people think, you can have a very satisfying relationship without sex.-------------------------If you feel like you can’t control it all by yourself, you can talk to your doctor, pastor, parents, close relative or friends. Sometimes, having someone to talk to about how you feel helps better than trying to curb it all by yourself. Who knows, the person you want to meet may have had difficulty curbing his own desires too. What then is better than learning from someone’s experience. Don’t be shy or scared of being judged.-----------------Get spiritual help that engages your mind in spiritual activities that are far from sex. Being around people pursuing the same goal as you, especially in chastity can also be a strong supportive measure. That way you have someone holding your hands all the way. Trying doing BRAMARI PRANAYAM for 10-15 minutes in morning for Mind control.

Hi sir, I m very depressed for quite a long time. Due to marriage issues, it is affecting my overall health n m jobless right now, it seems from everywhere I m kind of trapped, don't know what to do where to go . What should i do for coping up with this low time and depressed? Thanks plz

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
That can be very tough if you are feeling trapped everywhere, Out of job is another issues that you mentioned. Job brings financial security and self respect along with satisfaction. Marriage also helps in feeling secure and desire of love and companionship gets taken care of. Bringing up children is yet another aspect which can be very satisfying for some people. Yet if you are not getting these expectations met, then it can be very disappointing and depressing for some people. I would suggest to you strongly that you approach a counsellor first who will also refer you to a psychiatrist if necessary, and if there is clinical depression, then you take meds from the psychiatrist.

You need to organize study, excercising, good sleep, prioritize, make notes, answer ols question papers, concentrate and enjoy studying, avoid negative thoughts and drugs or alcohol. Be present minded. Look forwards. Never look back. Be confident you will succeed. Practice reading and revising as many times as you can without stressing.

I am a 22 year old male. I have pain in my neck, eyes, ear. My hands shiver a lot. And lately I have also beginning to stammer and fumble a lot. My speech is also slurred. There is pain in my calf when a do any small activity. I have gone to various doctors over the past 2 years, but none of them have cured my symptoms. Some doc said I need a psychiatrist. So I m going to a few psychiatrists and all the psychiatrist tell me that I have different disease. Some doc say I have anxiety disorder, some say I have adhd, some say I have double depression, some say I have compulsive disorder. I m taking a lot of antidepressant over the last 1 year but still no positive effect has been there. I m very stressed now. And I am feeling hopeless and helpless. No doctor can cure my disease or even find out what I am suffering from. I have a feeling doctors are just telling me wrong things and making money. Over the last 2 years I have spent alot of money for my treatment. But no improvement. What should I do?

I do not have complete symptoms to come to a diagnosis from the brief you have given so far. It will certainly help to meet with a counselor too, or a clinical psychologist who could conduct some psychological tests and help to come to a diagnosis. Apart from that, do regular counseling for the tension you are in currently. Through that interaction, the professional can learn a lot more and give you specific help based on a lot of data. I hope your parents accompany you to fill in information from your childhood and cover any heredity factors that may also be playing a role. In the course of all this I suggest you explore either acupuncture or acupressure: there is a possibility that you could benefit from that. Psychiatrists are not out to make money out of you. If there are confusing symptoms, they have to by trial and error find out what kind of medicine will work on you and how much dosage is required for your condition. As they narrow down to what is called the optimum dose for you, then they can maintain that prescription for long enough to stabilize the brain chemistry. If you change doctors in the interim, you are not giving them adequate time to go through these perfunctory functions.

How to overcome the problem of depression as I am running under it so how to manage?
Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

I take too much of stress. How can it be rectified?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Forgetfullness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist in person for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration.
