One doctor told me that, if weight is lost due to chronic anxiety or stress, both LDL and hdl will fall. So my mind forces me to take anxiety or stress to reduce LDL cholesterol. I'm underweight, my weight is losing. But many doctors say that if weight is lost due to anxiety, hdl will decrease and LDL will increase.

Dear Relax Please don't play with these figures. Cholesterol is made in body as per needs. Food does not alter this. Remove all mis conceptions. Eat well. Exercise well. Enjoy good health. Remember stress can harm you badly. Be happy.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This problem can be seen in many households. Happens because of personality differences, age differences, cultural differences etc. This issue can be cleared through family counselling. Please understand, son should look after his mother till the end. Take care.

You need to see a psychologist for diagnosis first. Then, based on the reports go for psychotherapy or medicines as advised. Pranayaam on astha channel daily 5.00 am to 7.30 am will be helpful.

General Physician,
If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it? depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day? or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. But make yourself do it anyway (ask a friend to exercise with you if you need to be motivated). Once you get in the exercise habit, it won't take long to notice a difference in your mood. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Try downward-facing dog or legs-up-the-wall pose (you can find these poses on yoga websites). Two other aspects of yoga? breathing exercises and meditation? can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. If depression has affected your eating, you'll need to be extra mindful of getting the right nourishment. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. Once you air out these thoughts and feelings, turn your attention to something positive. Take action to solve problems. Ask for help if you need it. Feeling connected to friends and family can help relieve depression. It may also help them feel there's something they can do instead of just watching you hurt. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about? a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I have agoraphobia. I have been formerly diagnosed with it. I have been given propranolol, I also suffer absence seizures, am not on medication for that currently either. With my agoraphobia I can barely go on public transport without feeling nauseous. Would it be safe to take one 10 mg propranolol tablet per day or whenever I need to get on transport?

Exposure therapy helps you. You have to keep saying to yourself that you will come out of this problem. If you decide, then it becomes easy for you. In this therapy, you should start going out to places which you fear directly and face the consequence. Or take someone with you and go the places . First day just go near that place, next go a bit forward, third day some more distance. In the same continue till you come out of that fear. You can and you will definitely overcome fear.

I have been facing sleeping problem since two months. And it is affecting my concentration at work and I get burning in eyes most of the time.

Don't take any sedative medicines. Eat heavy food at night. Apply chandhan lepa on your forehead and on your feet before going to sleep.

Generally speaking, before starting medicines from a psychiatrist, it is advisable to get psycho-diagnostic testing done to determine what is the nature of symptoms- is it psychological –requiring counselling/psychotherapy or does the symptom require medicines from a psychiatrist. HOWEVER, WHEN SYMPTOMS ARE NO LONGER NORMAL OR TOUCHING UPON INSANITY, SEE A PSYCHIATRIST IMMEDIATELY. PSYCHIATRIST IS MBBS PLUS MD IN PSYCHIATRY- HE GIVES MEDICINES ONLY. TREATMENT STARTED EARLIER WILL CONTROL THE PROBLEM VERY FAST. YOU MUST SEE A QUALIFIED AND TRAINED PSYCHOLOGIST FOR CORRECT DIAGNOSIS. MANY PEOPLE CALL THEMSELVES PSYCHOLOGIST, JUST AFTER A BA OR GRADUATION DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY, OR AFTER MA OR MASTERS IN PSYCHOLOGY. - A PhD in psychology is reqd. To qualify as doctor. Difference is same as you see MBBS doctor or MD doctor as a specialist for any illness. PSYCHOLOGIST IS AN EXPERT IN DIAGNOSIS BY PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING AND COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY I.E. TREATMENT WITHOUT MEDICINES. GET PROPER DIAGNOSIS FIRST FOLLOWED BY RIGHT TREATMENT. PLEASE GET DIAGNOSIS CONFIRMED FIRST THEN TAKE MEDICINES AS ADVISED. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT PROBLEM IS PSYCHOLOGICAL-THEN IT WILL NOT BE CURED BY MEDICINES. YOU WILL NEED PSYCHOTHERAPY.

I am going through a bit of stress due to my hectic office schedule. Sometimes experiencing forgetfulness. Is there any homeopathic medicine to de-stress myself Thanking you.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Hello Lybrate User, Take homeopathic treatment for stress management, Homeopathic medicines support your body’s need to calm down, relax, focus, and avoid agitation and exhaustion. Homeopathy focuses on the cause of your health problem rather than just treating the symptoms. Along follow these tips, that will also help you - * Regular exercise. Physical activity is a great way to let off some steam. Exercise releases endorphins, our natural ‘feel good’ hormones, which boost energy levels and counteract stress hormones, such as cortisol. * Take a short 10-15 minute break every few hours to rest and recuperate. Or go for a short walk to get some fresh air. * Learn to say no! Set yourself realistic expectations and learn how to say “no” when your workload or social and family commitments get too much. * Learn to switch off. Leaving the office for the day? Then it’s time to switch off your work brain as well as your mobile phone. Unless you need to be on call for work, there’s rarely anything that can’t be solved the next day with renewed perspective. * Breathe! When we’re stressed, we tend to shallow breathe. Try to take deeper breaths into your diaphragm. For homeopathic treatment consult me on Lybrate privately. Take care.

Hi my problem is that I am in a love affair from last 8 year. It was pretty good for first 2 years den afterwards she got admission in mca and got spoiled like her friends. She started speaking lies every now and then and started hiding many things. Last year I came to know that she was talking to a friend of her on regular basis that too after my instruction to not to talk to him since he was taking too much interest in her. But 1 day she forgot her phone in my car where I read that they are still in contact. On my confrontation she told me that she was only helping him due to some problem in his home. Although I couldn't find any message which anything wrong. But since then I have become very insecure because she use to take my guidance in her every decision then how come she took such a big decision without my consent and that too after my restriction to talk to him. Although she says she has never ever thought of any other person in her life. I am getting very insecure now and whenever she talks about her collegue n friends I start doubting. This insecurity is affecting me like hell and bring my morale down quite frequently. Although we love each other but we fight a lot. I am not even able to leave her as the relationship is so old and she love me a lot. But I am scared if later I came to know that she even had a fling then I wont be able to control myself. I don't know what to do as neither I am able to leave her nor accept her totally. Moreover after that incidence I am finding myself unable to trust her and thats why not able to love her or trust her completely. How can I know the truth behind this. I tried many things but dont have any proof. I beg you please help me out of this condition.

Before you realise you seem to suffer from delusion of infidelity. This can be secondary to your own depressive illness and low confidence states. If you really love her let her go free, do what she likes, see happiness in her happiness. If she also loves you, she will always think you and come back to you during times of her realxation and happiness sharing. In the state you are, visit a psychiatrist.
