I have chest pain and cough over 5 years is there any solution for this. I smoke ciggarates.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I have chest pain and cough over 5 years is there any solution for this. I smoke ciggarates.
I hope it is a regular chest pain and cough. But you never know with you smoking and all. You msut visit a doctor and examine teh chest pain to see that you are not developing some cardiac problem. Whatever happens the smoking must stop. It is very bad habit and if these symptoms are connected to the habit, this may hopefully be the last of your smoking. Please do some of the following as you condition improves:Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear Lybrate user No one is perfect in this world Everyone get nervous at some point of life ,some get nervous during Exam, Some get nervous during fights, Some get nervous in front of teachers it only depends on our approach, so its natural phenomenon But it does't mean that it cannot be change ,as I mentioned earlier it depends on your approach only. Think anyone as, as human whether boy or girl. When you approach to any girl think that she is also like you don't give extra importance to this topic, its time to focus on your career ,when you will be good in your career then you will get confidence automatically, practice to talk with yourself in front of mirror it will increase your confidence, motivate yourself, set some topics for everyday and try to complete your topic in the given time it will boost your confidence as well as will help to complete your course. You can take help of any counsellor regarding this ,if you need my help you can contact me .good luck.

Sir /Madam,
I am suffering shaking in my body shaking hands and also suffering low power to control confidence.
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. 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.

The double effect of smoking and drinking will definitely affect your erectile capability. Smoking directly impacts your erection and it can do so immediately when you smoke. You can recover completely with quitting smoking and going on an exercise program immediately. You may visit a sexologist to determine the extent of damage and that person will also give you problem-specific actions to take.

I am studying in 11th class whenever I am going to learn something my left part of brain starts tingling or paining and whatever I learn I forgot after sometime every morning my head also pains please give me suggestions.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably more oriented toward right brain functioning. So, whenever you attempt to want to learn and remember something you will have to use left brain but it is not your favored hemisphere and so it is likely because of this that you experience tingling and pain. This is likely to happen for a few more months because of your age. You are in late adolescence and so you will be changing to favor the right brain soon and these symptoms will disappear. If you are under stress due to other factors combining with hormonal imbalances, then this condition may prolong a little more than usual. If you want to push the agenda mentioned above I suggest that you do a few of the left brain exercises as recommended: block your left nostril and breathe deeply as often as you can; look at or visualize the colors yellow and amber as often as you can; and sleep on your left ear whenever you lie down and at night.

You have to quit smoking to improve your erection. I don’t think there is any minimum number of cigarettes that you need to smoke to cause cancer. It is still dangerous for other reasons, anyway. For example, each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your BP rises with every cigarette you smoke. That is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking.

You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

When I study for exams I read well and get prepared for that but if I entered in to exam hall I can't remember what I studied for the exam I am getting lack of memory power.

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
HI lybrate-user It seems that you get nervous. When you enter the examination hall make yourself comfortable, take a few deep breath to reduce tension. Take your time to read through all the question's and instructions carefully. Pick the questions that relate well to your revision, and start writing. Don't think about result just do your best. For improving memory power try to involve yourself in reading! instead of just reading you need to read and think about what you reading and summarize it in your memory and make a short notes. Revise often and re- read to your notes as much as you can. Be sure to get enough sleep and eat healthy. All the best.

I am 37 year old male. I have to resign from my job due to medical exigency of my parents a year ago. Being having good professional experience I am still not getting job. My mind all the time keeps on thinking anything i. E. Negative thoughts. I am depressed & cry a lot alone. Some time I talk to myself. I am unable to think sometime. I have lost all hopes of my life. I feel lonely in life. I do not sleep at night. I do not feel to eat anything. Everyday I am in tension. Feel not to survive any more in the world. In crises all relatives & friends have withdrawn their hands from us. Doctor please guide me what should I do and why all this is happening to me. I was very strong & bold man earlier but now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

At your age, a break in service will have a negative effect. But since you had a medical contingency to tackle you can always explain that as your reason. You need to apply to a lot of placement agencies, both online and recruitment offices. The job market is improving and will take a big positive swing soon. You have got to persevere. Do not cry alone, ever: you will easily get into a self-pity mode and that will never help you. Go meet a counselor and share your feelings. An idle mind is a devil? s workshop: you will be plagued by negative thoughts. Do you have faith? trust and pray to god often and with persistence. Do not become passive in these circumstances. Do regular exercises, eat well, sleep well and be positive. The whole body, which is each and every cell, responds to your thoughts. If change your negative thoughts to positive ones, your body and mind will respond likewise. Success is measured by the number of times you fell and yet stood up. Learn to depend on people who are trustworthy, always. Life will always have its challenges. And when it rains it pours. Be strong and reach out to reliable people. Life is precious and everything that can sustain it and stretch it, is always the mantra of the medical profession, and should be yours too. When you overcome these hurdles, you will one day look back with pride, if you fought the good fight.

Smoking habit, my body is weak. Not capable to walk so long. Chest pain. Afraid to cancer.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Since you are afraid of cancer, get rid of this habit at once. It is a known cause of cancer. The other symptoms are also related to excessive smoking. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days.
