Anxiety Disorder - How They Can Be Managed?

Psychiatrist, Ranchi
Anxiety Disorder - How They Can Be Managed?

There isn’t any person who doesn’t suffer from an irrational fear, but for most of the individuals, these problems are minor and under control. Unfortunately, there are some people who suffer from anxiety and fear to such an extent that it interrupts with their normal functioning and then it is termed as phobias. The good news is that you would be able to control and cure your anxiety and phobias with therapies and self-help strategies.

Understanding phobias and anxiety: Many kids develop different types of fears, which change from time to time and get completely eliminated when they grow up. This is absolutely normal and is a part of their growth and development. When a person reaches the age of seven, he/she is supposed to suffer from realistic anxieties such as academic performance, accidents, injuries and other similar incidents. But if the unnatural and unrealistic fear lingers on when an individual grows up to such severity that he becomes petrified with the thought of that specific thing, then it is crucial to pay attention to it.

Signs of anxiety and phobias: The signs of anxiety and phobias can be more or less and may vary in terms of severity. When you are able to understand a steady progression from mild feelings of apprehension to a full-fledged panic attack, it is a symptom of phobia. Normally, the closer the person is to the source of the fear, the more anxious and troubled he would be. It would take to devastating levels when the concerned individual is not able to get away from the difficulties.

Physical symptoms of the anxiety include

  • Frequent breathing with difficulty
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Pain in the chest
  • Trembling and shaking with convulsions

Individuals may also suffer from dizziness or light-headedness, churning in the stomach, tingling sensations along with cold or hot flashes and terrible sweating even when the temperature is considerably low.

On the other hand, the emotional symptoms of phobia or anxiety include feelings of overwhelming fear, panic and anxiousness. The concerned individual would feel like running off and remain detached from the rest of the world. It may make one feel that he is going to pass away and he is unable to control himself in spite of knowing that he is over-reacting.

Seek help at the earliest:
If the anxiety or the phobia one is suffering from doesn’t intervene in normal workings of a person’s life, then it should not be a cause of distress. But if it has taken terrible levels, then it is crucial to seek professional assistance. One may also help himself by taking the challenge of facing the fears one at a time, and it can be totally controlled with gradual and repeated exposure to the fear. If no therapy seems to help you, then it is best to consider seeking professional counseling.

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

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.

Causes

Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.

Treatment

Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.

Prevention

Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

Hi my father is having tobacco every day . how to stop this habitat please Tell this

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
What is the age of your father? how long as he been using tobacco? is he smoking tobacco or consuming it? these pieces of information will help. Any way, he cannot stop easily, if he himself does not want to. It must ideally come from his own desire to stop. You can force him to stop by admitting him in a rehabilitation center, if they also do not allow smoking (unfortunately many centers dole out daily quota of cigarettes). If you admit him in one of the naturopathy institutes, he will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help him to quit. Do not take him out for at least one month or more. When he comes back keep him under vigil and monitor him so that neither he nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for him. He may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let him indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put him on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to his system. If he is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to him. He can be coaxed to maintain his abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make him do meditation; make him stick to a regular schedule of activities, have him involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate him about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

Having problem with my memory. I tend to forget many things at a time, some times small things some time big. Cannot understand what is the problem.

Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Medicine is always side effects. One problem solved other problems comes to you. So better to know and practice stress management techniques. Depressive thoughts come because of excessive stress. Stress is the cause of excessive thoughts. So better to control your thoughts. If you think seriously in one aspect it may cause stress. If you any internal problems. It is better to share with your friends and family members. Then the severity of stress reduced. Meanwhile you have to do yourself for satisfied thoughts. Spend most of the time with friends. After work visit your friends homes. Walk evening time. Practice yoga and meditation. Visit temple's. Movies, some new places, eat and enjoy variety of different food items. Do not sit alone. Do not think it is always not good to you. Change yourself. Think like a matured person and behave like a gentleman. Do not go to any other medicine. Ok best of luck.

I've a doubt that my father is suffering from schizophrenia. He's more self-centered then before. Got hyper, panic, and aggressive in any little argument.

Psychologist, Pune
Hi lybrate-user, I am providing you a diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia. You could look through it and see in case your father falls in these criteria since the symptoms you have mentioned is not too clear. Characteristic symptoms: Two (or more) of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated): Delusions - false beliefs strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence, especially as a symptom of mental illness: for example, Paranoid delusions, or delusions of persecution, for example believing that people are" out to get" you, or the thought that people are doing things when there is no external evidence that such things are taking place. Delusions of reference - when things in the environment seem to be directly related to you even though they are not. For example it may seem as if people are talking about you or special personal messages are being communicated to you through the TV, radio, or other media. Somatic Delusions are false beliefs about your body - for example that a terrible physical illness exists or that something foreign is inside or passing through your body. Delusions of grandeur - for example when you believe that you are very special or have special powers or abilities. An example of a grandiouse delusion is thinking you are a famous rock star. Hallucinations - Hallucinations can take a number of different forms - they can be: Visual (seeing things that are not there or that other people cannot see), Auditory (hearing voices that other people can't hear, Tactile (feeling things that other people don't feel or something touching your skin that isn't there.) Olfactory (smelling things that other people cannot smell, or not smelling the same thing that other people do smell) Gustatory experiences (tasting things that isn't there) Disorganized speech (e. G. Frequent derailment or incoherence) - these are also called" word salads" Grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior (An abnormal condition variously characterized by stupor/innactivity, mania, and either rigidity or extreme flexibility of the limbs). Negative symptoms, these are the lack of important abilities. Some of these include: Lack of emotion - the inability to enjoy acitivities as much as before Low energy - the person sits around and sleeps much more than normal Lack of interest in life, low motivation Affective flattening - a blank, blunted facial experession or less lively facial movements or physical movements. Alogia (difficulty or inability to speak) Inappropriate social skills or lack of interest or ability to socialize with other people Inability to make friends or keep friends, or not caring to have friends Social isolation - person spends most of the day alone or only with close family Note: Only one Criterion A symptom is required if delusions are bizarre or hallucinations consist of a voice keeping up a running commentary on the person’s behavior or thoughts, or two or more voices conversing with each other. Cognitive Symptoms of Schizophrenia Cognitive symptoms refer to the difficulties with concentration and memory. These can include: Disorganized thinking Slow thinking Difficulty understanding Poor concentration Poor memory Difficulty expressing thoughts Difficulty integrating thoughts, feelings and behavior Social/occupational dysfunction: For a significant portion of the time s+ince the onset of the disturbance, one or more major areas of functioning such as work, interpersonal relations, or self-care are markedly below the level achieved prior to the onset (or when the onset is in childhood or adolescence, failure to achieve expected level of interpersonal, academic, or occupational achievement). Duration: Continuous signs of the disturbance persist for at least 6 months. This 6-month period must include at least 1 month of symptoms (or less if successfully treated) that meet Criterion A (i. E. Active-phase symptoms) and may include periods of prodromal or residual symptoms. During these prodromal or residual periods, the signs of the disturbance may be manifested by only negative symptoms or two or more symptoms listed in Criterion A present in an attenuated form (e. G. Odd beliefs, unusual perceptual experiences). Schizoaffective and mood disorder exclusion: Schizoaffective disorder and mood disorder with psychotic features have been ruled out because either (1) no major depressive, manic, or mixed episodes have occurred concurrently with the active-phase symptoms; or (2) if mood episodes have occurred during active-phase symptoms, their total duration has been brief relative to the duration of the active and residual periods. Substance/general medical condition exclusion: The disturbance is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e. G drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition. Relationship to a pervasive developmental disorder: If there is a history of autistic disorder or another pervasive developmental disorder, the additional diagnosis of schizophrenia is made only if prominent delusions or hallucinations are also present for at least a month (or less if successfully treated). Let us know if you have any further query.
