I am suffering from anxiety neurosis with fobia. What is the treatment for it ?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
I am suffering from anxiety neurosis with fobia. What is the treatment for it ?
In anxiety disorder the patient always have ongoing anxiety on minor day to day issues, patient feels himself/ herself on the edge always and experience worry, preoccupation with negative thinking, insomnia and poor self confidence. Person hesitates and avoids many things leading to serious social and occupational dysfunction. In phobia a person experiences extreme discomfort in certain situations. He may avoid these situations to avoid discomfort and uneasiness. Some patients are so phobic that they stop going out only, thus hampering study and work as well as relation with others. Fortunately treatment is available but current law does not allow to prescribe drug online. You may consult a nearby psychiatrist for prescription of medicines like citalopram for a duration for cure. I wish you all the best.

With the available information this can be cured by behavioural therapy. Most of the time it is managed properly. If it still persists contact psychiatrist.

How can we make our skin glowing. I used to drink amla juice few days ago for last two months, now I stopped drinking it. Now I use to drink 5-6 litre water daily. I don't like applying paste, scrub, face pack, etc. It makes me annoying and irritating! So, Sir/mam how can we make our skin glowing? Can only water make my skin to glow? Or should I follow some other things? I don't know other things so please suggest me something like water which make my skin to glow, instead of applying anything on the face!

For a good and glowing skin, take a proper sleep, plenty of water./ do not step out in the sun, without wearing a sunscreen. Nutritious diet rich in antioxidants (green vegetables and fresh fruits) and avoidance of stress will help. Depigmenting cream or facewash can be recommended to you for improving your condition depending upon your specific hyperpigmentation problem/ skin type.

Gets angry and panic in very little things. What should I do?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Gets angry and panic in very little things. What should I do?
Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand.For further assistance you can concern me privately.Take care.

Sir, there is no way of exactly pinpointing the degree of damage without a few tests, both physical and psychological. Not only lungs an liver, but even the brain is affected by regular heavy use of cigarettes and alcohol. I recommend that if you are planning to quit, you seek help and quit in a graded manner.

6 Ways to Stop a Panic Attack

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
6 Ways to Stop a Panic Attack

A panic attack can start suddenly and may be caused due a variety of reasons. A patient of depression and anxiety usually goes through such attacks. The symptoms of these attacks include sudden and persistent fear, the feeling of losing control, the feeling of having a heart attack, palpitations problem, sweating, dizzy spells and more. It has been medically proven that most adults go through at least one or more panic attacks in their lifetime.

Here are a few ways in which one can stop a panic attack:

  1. Recognise the Signs: Take note of the symptoms. From a feeling of choking to detachment, losing control, surreal experiences, dizzy spells, nausea, pain in the abdomen and chills, to tremors, and a fear of facing death, there are many symptoms that can put your body in a fight or flight response where things may suddenly seem terrifying, and without any reason at that.
  2. Breath Control: Learn to control your breathing as soon as you begin to experience the symptoms. This will help in distraction even as it soothes and calms you down, thus forcing you to think rationally about the fear and helplessness that you are suddenly experiencing. Sit down with your knees bent and let your shoulders relax.
  3. Relaxation Techniques: Learn and practice a few relaxation techniques during times like these. This may include simple things like rubbing your neck and more focused activities like talking to yourself and meditating.
  4. Continuation: Remember to hold your breath, let it out, and then carry on with the activity that you had set out to do. If you stop what you were doing, then the message going to your brain is loud and clear and you will panic even further. But if you relax and zone out before letting yourself go about the chore, however robotically, then it will have a positive effect on the messages that are sent to your brain.
  5. Medication: In the event that you are not able to fully control and relax yourself and your thoughts, then you may want to see a psychiatrist who can prescribe specific medication that will help in relaxing you. Sedatives and antidepressants may also be prescribed for patients who are going through severe episodes of panic with debilitating symptoms.
  6. Differentiate between Stress and Panic: Many times, we may feel like we are panicking, yet this may simply be a way of going through stress. It is important to focus on recognising events and reactions as stress or panic.

Not allowing yourself run away from a situation is a sure shot way of dealing with panic as this condition the brain to be more accepting and resilient. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, any kind of obsession (whether good or bad) is not good for us as it creates problem not for us but for our near and dear ones as well! you need to consult a psychologist for counselling sessions apart from intake homoeopathic medicines. Both together can give you the best results. Adding meditation and yoga will accentuate this effect. Medication: silicea 200/ twice daily, bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos 6x/ once at night. Take all of them for 1 month. Revert me back there after. Take care.

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle? What should I do. Please help me.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle?  What should I do. Please help me.
There is no pill for this but you can follow these tips which can be helpful: • Drink lots of water. At night, as you study, keep water at hand and sip it regularly. • Avoid tea and coffee. Yes caffeine will wake you up and give u a buzz right away .But once the effect wears off; you will feel even more tired and sleepy than you were before. This happens because these drinks dehydrate you. • Have a balanced diet: Eat a heavy and healthy breakfast but have a light dinner. If you feel hungry at night, eat fruits, dry fruits, and salads only. Avoid junk food. • Take a 20-30 minute nap during the day. This shall help you to concentrate better. • As you study, whenever you feel tired or sleepy or even stressed, take a minute to practice yoga- breathing exercises. Concentrating on your breath can help bring more oxygen to the brain which will in turn wake the body up and help clear your mind to study better. All the best!

Hi, I am a 17 years old boy. I can't concentrate on my studies. Whenever I opens my book I feel sleepy. I feels weakness every time.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. I can help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

My daughter is staying away from home since last 10 years because of studies and work. Now she has completed her studies and want to do some job. We are telling her to do the job in our city so that we all can live together. But she doesn't want to come back and neither want to stay with us. She wants to be alone and away from us. She is marriage able but don't want to marry now. May be she is afraid of us that we will press her for marriage. How can we convince her that we want her to be happy and will never pressure her to go against her will. Should I stay with her for some time? Very confusing and worried.

Ask here what is the reason behind her decision of staying away from home? is it because you will press for marriage or she won't have freedom that she can have otherwise? she may have friends or boyfriend there that she doesn't want to come back? if growth opportunities are good there let her do job there and one of you can go and stay with her. It's been 10 years she is away and therefore is not that home sick and dependant. Let her do job where ever she wants to. If you really want her back due to some genuine reason explain her the bright side of staying with you. Ask her about her fears and clear her doubts. Don't worry just tell her what you all feel genuinely leave rest on her. Make her little emotional if it s for her good. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. The more you think, the more you are lazy. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.
