3 Mental Disorders That Genes Can Pass!

The risk of a mental illness increases, if one or more of your family members have a mental disorder, but this increased risk doesn't guarantee that you will develop a mental illness. Not only have some mental illnesses been found to be hereditary in nature, but certain studies have found that some major mental illnesses can be traced to the same genetic variations.

Some hereditary psychiatric disorders are:

  1. Obsessive compulsive disorder: Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is a disorder of the brain and behavior. A person suffering from OCD has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts and behaviors they cannot stop repeating. Ocd also causes severe anxiety in such people. In 2000, a study conducted by researchers in Washington d. C. And Baltimore concluded that having one or more ocd family member (s) may increase the chances of you developing it too. In 2010, a study tracked down possible chromosomes that may be responsible for OCD.
  2. Schizophrenia: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness that affects and dictates how a person feels, thinks and behaves. Those suffering from schizophrenia may lose touch with reality and experience delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders and movement disorders. It has been seen that people who have an identical twin with schizophrenia are 50% more likely to develop the disorder and those who have one parent suffering from schizophrenia are 18% more likely to inherit the illness.
  3. Depression: Major depression or clinical depression is a common though severe mood disorder. It is characterized by an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that last at least for two consecutive weeks. Those suffering from depression may feel helpless and worthless, lose all interest in daily activities or activities they used to enjoy and feel unable to take part in normal day-to-day activities. Other symptoms of depression also include sleep pattern and appetite changes, chronic fatigue, concentration or focus problems and physical discomfort. Some patients with depression may become suicidal.

In 2011, a study pinned down a specific chromosome that may trigger depression development. Research on the hereditary properties of depression within families shows that some people are more prone to develop the disorder than others. If you have a parent or sibling that suffers from depression, you might be 1.5 to 3 times more likely to develop depression than those who do not have a close family member suffering from this condition. You are also more prone to developing bipolar disorder in such a scenario.

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

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Hello, I have tremors that get exacerbated severely by anxiety to the point where I cannot perform fine motor skills actions under situations of stress like examinations. Daily activities that appear not to cause undue stress to others cause severe stress palpitations and anxiety to me. I feel like in general all activities and leisure activities do not hold same level of interest to me as when I was a teenager and I generally have feelings of sadness and depression throughout with disturbed and erratic sleep. I am still able to go to college and do my daily activities however but not able to invest much time and effort in anything for long stretches of time.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I drink alcohol ocationly but chewing tobacco daily, but I was regular user alcohol before 3 years but now I quit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Chewing tobacco is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral submucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course, since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the submucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance is known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred. If he is unable to give it up on his own, he needs to be admitted into a rehabilitation center nearby until he is completely out of it. They will have him deal with all other issues also and so his anger outbursts will also get attention. The anger may or may not have anything to do with the addiction but still it is better he deals with it in the course of his therapy. I am glad you have reduced alcohol consumption to occasional use only.

I am suffering from Shortness of breath, irregular heartbeats, psychosis, anxiety, depression, constant headache, heavy head, panic disorder, unstoppable thoughts & thinking, brain thinking not in my control etc. I have been suffering from constant headache, anxiety, depression, heavy head, restlessness, unstoppable thinking not in my hand etc. From last years end of february. Than these symptoms were there when in last years november ,panic disorder (due to consumption of ganja) and other symptoms started. These all symptoms are continuously there ,and never gone. I am continuously in touch with psychiatrist from last years august. And I suffered from ups and downs in my mental health followed with panic attacks (fear of dying). And panic attack arose after consumption of ganja in last years november. So the main aim to consult you (dietician) is to let me know ,what all physical activities I can do to recover fastly and what all meal plans (foods that will be good for mental health) should I take regularly so that I can recover fastly. Actually I am taking medications continuously, and I found medications sometimes made my health worsened than sometimes helpful. Overall there is only 10% improvement in my health with medication. So I just wanted to focus now on the natural ways to recover fastly. I want to do it on my own. As I am frustrated with this mental health. I want you to tell me the physical activities that I can do regularly to cope up with mental health and also the meal plan required with it. I am damn serious ,i will follow the physical activity plan and meal plan provided by you to recover my health back and walk on roads like a normal human. Please give me a good diet plan or foods that I should take to recover fastly. For example, if I am jogging and running in morning at 6 a.m,than it will require a diet plan for body to make me again jogg and do physical activity next day. As my body feels week too sometimes.

What I understood from your writing is that you are highly anxious and worried. You may not be having that many kind of illnesses as you described. I am a Clinical Psychologist and what I feel is that you did not get psychological interventions like psychotherapy or counselling in addition to your treatment now. Try to avail cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for the same. Definitely healthy diet with fish and fish oil (omega3) will help you. Avoid direct sugars, processed food and Too much of fat. Do moderate exercise like regular walking for 30 to 40 minutes .Be busy with things and get away from negative thoughts .Bye and take care.

He is very weak in studies language learning disability Weak in counting money but his brain is normal how he should improve his knowledge.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Give him homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory and making the mind sharper - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditation for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.
