Yes lybrate-user, you are suffering from phobic anxiety. It is panic attack which you translate it as nearing heart attack. Panic is panic it never will turn into heart attack you must have noticed panic attack last for few minutes and then subsides. Anxiety is fear. It's the activation of the fight or flight system, which is the system that your body uses to react to fear responses. Anxiety disorders occur because the body is activating that response when no danger is present. But in addition to being fear, anxiety also causes other fears. That's one of the reasons that anxiety can be hard to treat without help. One of the fears it causes is a fear of cardiovascular problems (poor heart health), and often those fears end up contributing to further anxiety. It would be disingenuous to say you do not have a heart condition, because there is no way to know until you talk to your doctor. But let's assume that you're like most people - your doctor is going to tell you that nothing is wrong with your heart. So then why are these cardiovascular problems occurring? the answer is likely to be hyperventilation. Hyperventilation is also known as" over-breathing, and contrary to popular belief, it's not caused by getting too little air. It's actually caused by breathing out too much carbon dioxide. Your body needs the right balance of carbon dioxide to function. When you breathe too quickly (or breathe in more oxygen than your body needs), your cells are drained of their carbon dioxide and your entire body is forced to work much harder in order to function. Your blood vessels constrict, your brain gets less oxygen, and your heart has to beat extra fast because your blood is slowing down. This what causes the vast majority of the symptoms of a panic attack. And what makes it worse is that hyperventilation makes it feel like you're not getting enough oxygen, even though the reality is that you've taken in too much. Because of that feeling, most people continue to hyperventilate even more in order to try to get a" full breath" only to hyperventilate even further and experience a worsening of the symptoms. When you combine these symptoms with anxiety, you get a constant feeling that your heart is in poor health. The first thing you need to do is practice better breathing. Since hyperventilation causes most of the symptoms, it's important to start breathing more efficiently. Take slow, controlled breaths, and fight the urge to yawn or expand your chest. The moment you start to feel as though a panic attack is coming on, try the following: breathe in slowly, taking at least 5 seconds. Hold for two seconds. Breathe out as though whistling for 7 seconds. Never rush the air out of your body, and try to give yourself time to regain your carbon dioxide level. Don't hold your breath for too long though since holding your breath can cause similar symptoms and may exacerbate your anxiety. Controlling your breathing won't stop your panic attacks, but they should reduce the severity, and for many that alone can help reduce the frequency of panic attacks in the future. Once you've controlled your breathing it's time to combat your overall anxiety, which in turn will decrease your cardiovascular health fears. All the best consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

Maternal smoking has severe deleterious effect on the growing fetus including intrauterine growth retardation and low birth weight. It also poses a significant risk to develop respiratory illness like asthma in future. So smoking mothers should choose either smoking or their child's health.

and from last 4 5 months. I was in stress bcoz of my mba ? Is this the reason behind that ?
Dear Lybrate user. Excess study without taking care of your natural ability and health, exerts stress on your body and mind. That is natural. 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. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. 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 psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Response prevention is the best way to avoid doing things repeatedly. That is whenever you get an urge to repeat , you should avoid it. This may be difficult but if you make up your mind, you can and you will. Nothing is difficult in front of your mind. We human beings are gifted by that by god. We can do miracles if we are strong and determined. Always give positive affirmations to yourself. Dont loose hope. Every problem has solution and it lies within us. You have to find a way.

Dear lybrate user, you need counselling along with your medicines for depression. The counselling process will help you to understand and get rid of the root cause of your depression. Antidepressants may affect your sexual desire, and erection. Once, your negative thoughts reduce, you will need lesser medicines and your body will start functioning normally. Then you will have normal sexual desire and you will not have problems with erection. Consult a counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

There are way too many ways out of the situation and I believe that when in depression one looks so long at the door that is shut that they do not make an effort to open it or look at all the other doors that are options and thus the depression lingers. I would like you to speak with me in a one on one video or audio appointment as it would be an effective way to cope with your depression. Counseling may be one of the methods along with medications, however we can explore options if you make that small effort of booking an appointment. Take care and reach out!

My boy friend was a chain smoker 9 months before. He was smoking 5 to 6 cigarettes per day for nearly 3 years. Then he gradually decreased the count day by day due to my continuous compulsion. I personally hate smokers to the core. He said to me that he totally stopped smoking for the past 4 months. How to find whether it is true or not? Is there any way to find out that he is lining to me that he stopped it and still doing it when I am not around? Pls help me find it.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, There are few physical sign in smokers who smoke cigarette, try to find out those ones: -One of the most common and immediate symptoms of smoking is the persistent smokers' cough. The cough is usually the worst in the morning and lessens throughout the day. -Teeth of smokers show brownish black staining from inside and yellow discoloration from outside. -While yellowing teeth may take some time to appear, smoking cigarettes can cause yellow stains on the fingers and fingernails almost immediately. -A wheezing sound can indicate several different physical conditions, but one of them is damaged airways/lungs from smoking. ­-Shortness of breath is a tell-tale sign of a smoker. -Smokers are more prone to getting certain respiratory diseases like colds, bronchitis, and pneumonia. -Lips have a bluish-black discoloration in heavy smokers. -Premature wrinkling: ‘Crows feet’, ‘cobblestone wrinkles’, ‘smoker's face’: Crow's feet is the prominent lines and wrinkles starting from the corner of the eyes. Cobblestone wrinkles are wrinkles that run down at the back of the neck. Smokers also produce matrix metalloproteinase in excess, which degrades collagen and skin loses elasticity as a result. A typical “smoker's face” showing dryness of skin, wrinkles originating from the sides of eyelids running up to cheek called “crow's feet”, wrinkles in front of the ears, and wrinkles running down the neck. -Nodular elastosis of skin with comedone formation. -Multiple open and closed comedones (black heads) over forehead and furrowed wrinkled skin, produced by chronic sun exposure and heavy smoking. Multiple open and closed comedones are present in the periorbital and temporal areas with yellowish discoloration, yellowish nodules, atrophy, wrinkles, and furrows. The eruption is usually bilaterally symmetrical. No inflammation is present, unlike the comedones seen in acne vulgaris. Apart from physical signs and symptoms, the other signs can also help you: -See if their clothes (or hair) smells like smoke. -Look for burn holes in the carpet, in their car, and in their clothing. -If they use mouthwash or gum more frequently.

Drug Abuse - How To Treat It?

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Drug Abuse - How To Treat It?

Drug abuse is characterized by the excessive use of illegal drugs, prescription drugs or even over-the-counter drugs. Drug abuse eventually leads to drug dependency whereby the drug begins to take control over you and affects your daily activities as well as your physical health.

Treatment:
Treatment of drug abuse normally involves a series of steps to be undertaken. These are:

  1. Group therapy
  2. Counseling
  3. Drug de-addiction

Furthermore, treatment of drug abuse generally follows a 12-step program which continues even after the treatment as a part of the recovery process.

Detoxification:
Detoxification, or simply detox, is a procedure involving medical care while attempting to deal with withdrawal symptoms after your initial break from drug use. Since dealing with withdrawal symptoms can be quite problematic, you will certainly have to consult a doctor who will probably prescribe you certain medications.

Therapy:
There are different types of therapy needed to overcome the problem of drug abuse. These include:

  1. Group therapy, where you can interact your problems with other people who are going through the same ordeal.
  2. Motivational interviewing (mi), where you can resolve mixed feelings with regard to quitting and treatment.
  3. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), where you can learn to take control over your actions as well as change your thought and behavior pattern in order to adjust to a drug-free life.
  4. Motivational enhancement therapy (met), where motivational interviewing is used to help give you more motivation with respect to quitting drug consumption.
  5. Family counseling, or even couples therapy, where you can learn how to stay drug-free as well as improve your relationship with your family members or with your partner.

Treatment programs:

Treatment programs are often similar to therapies and are classified into three types:

  1. Inpatient treatment
  2. Outpatient treatment
  3. Residential treatment

Hello I just tested hiv negative after 8 months of possible hiv risk exposure (two condoms protected sex at one time)...
So to put it briefly. You had a stressor. And even after reasonably ruling out the possibility of contracting HIV you still cannot get over it. Excessive anxiety which is apparently out of proportion is a disorder, often triggered by a stressor, could be treated adequately with medicine or psychological measures, depending on the situation. Please contact Psychologist.

Are you feeling Sad all the times ?

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Are you feeling Sad all the times ?
If you are feeling worthlessness, sadness and lack of hope than you may be suffering from depression. It is a debilitating condition that can prevent you from enjoying your life. Although it may be difficult to enjoy previous feeling of happiness. You can take control of your depression by increasing social support, changing your thinking and by increasing your physical health.
These are the method to overcome it.
1. Talk to a psychologist /psychiatrist/therapist a psychologist or a therapist will be able to help you work through the issues you are going through at this time. He or she will also educate you about your depression and will further guide you the right line of action to be taken.
2. Spend time with positive people social support is crucial to getting out of a depression and can be very helpful for you to cope with stress full life. Support from positive people can also help to reduce negative thoughts that lead to depression. Please find those people in your life who make a positive impact on your daily functioning. Your friends, family members or co-members should be encouraging and you should enjoy their company. Please go out and do small small things with them [ like listening music, watching movies, walking, reading etc.]. Please create distance with people you know cause you anxiety or who are not supportive. Spending time with them will surely worsen your condition and make it harder to feel enthusiastic about recovery. Plan a short vacation with positive people. 3. Physical contact
Hug a friend
Hold hands
Play with your pet or dog
4. Always think positive and realistically negative thoughts are trademark of depression. This means you get struck thinking the same negative thoughts over and over again. Write down all the bad negative thoughts you have and create a positive thought for each negative thought you wrote down. For example I am ugly, please write I am unique and beautiful. I dont need any approval.
5. Compliment yourself for small small things.
6. Please avoid alcohol, cigarettes or any kind of substance abuse.

I have a stage fear.I can write down the thing. But it come to speaking with strangers or on stage everything gets blurred.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Stage fear can be quite paralyzing although it hardly has anything to do with the stage. It is really a fear of people. We are gregarious by nature, social animals and need each other for survival and growth. Yet, the very thing that should be our strength can become our weakness, for various reasons. This last fact has to be discovered: what happened to you to develop this extent of anxiety around speaking to people. Are you afraid of being judged and rejected for what you have to say? Have you grown up with a lot of criticism? Do you have a serious rejection issue? The answers to these questions could open a can of worms with which you can do some work. Fear is the bottom-line. Do a personality development course, public speaking course, conversing skills course, join a Toastmasters Club, practice elocution skills, and above all talk to a counselor to help with the underlying fear. These will see you through, if you are sincere and committed.

Tips To Manage Anxiety!

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Tips To Manage Anxiety!

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Boyfriend (31) and I (27) have been together for almost five year Then, on the other hand, we had a couple of fights/discussions where I started crying. The times I cried was when he hurt me a lot or because of sadness and desperation of the situation.  Every time I cried he didn't seem to care at all. His reactions are every time totally cold. completely ignoring my feelings. Sometimes he even lays down and falls asleep while I'm still crying. Or he sometimes reacts to my words and tears with even more anger and is being even meaner to me. If I imagine to see him crying, that would be the worst for me. I love him so much that I hate to see him in pain. I had past I have discussed every thing to him but still he makes comments on it. My mistake was my ex was working in company where I went for an interview and I didn't tell him bcs he was on vacation but I informed my parents bcs they knew abt my past and I am a girl who never conflict there professional and personal life.

It is a very good feeling when you love someone so deep and truly. But unfortunately if love is not reciprocated, it leads to disappointment and complications which you are facing right now. You have done a good thing by telling your past. But don't think that your Boyfriend will forget it immediately. It is like a shock absorber where time is the best healer. The very fact that he gets disturbed for your past relationship is because he also loves you. He may be over possessive but this overpossiveness is also a sign of love. Keep on talking to him and express your love for him. Express that you get pain when you see him crying. Finally if things continue to remain same , you have to take a decision between emotional mind and rational mind. I mean ask yourself do you love him so much that you are ready to tolerate his indifferent attitude for the whom life?
