I am suffering from social anxiety. Sometime I get anxious and afraid while talking to people. Please suggest how to treat this and suggest some good psychiatrist. Because of this I take lot of care while talking with someone. Is my condition curable? Why I am suffering from this?

Social anxiety disorder, also known as social phobia, involves intense fear of certain social situations—especially situations that are unfamiliar or in which you feel you’ll be watched or judged by others. Underlying social anxiety disorder or social phobia is the fear of being scrutinized, judged, or embarrassed in public. You may be afraid that people will think badly of you or that you won’t measure up in comparison to others. And even though you probably realize that your fears of being judged are at least somewhat irrational and overblown, you still can’t help feeling anxious. While it may seem like there’s nothing you can do about the symptoms of social anxiety disorder or social phobia, in reality, there are many things that can help. It starts with understanding the problem. Yes it is completely curable with the help of psychiatrist and psychologist who will play the main role in managing your social phobia through techniques systematic desensitization and exposure. Seek help as soon as possible. We avoid what frightens us and are frightened by what we avoid. So start to actively put yourself in social situations. In fact, even doing this in your mind as well as for real will help show your unconscious mind that" this is normal. All the best.

Do regular exercises along with balanced diet. Drink a cup of warm milk daily night. Take bhrahmi vati and ashwaganda vati 2 tabs twice in a day after meals. Applying coconut oil on soles while going to bed will bring sound sleep every day.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Take care.

General Physician, Nashik
Please try to avoid exposure to smoke, dusts and air pollution as much as possible. A nutritive diet rich in vitamins & minerals including anti-oxidants is very important to support immune system. I would also suggest you regular breathing exercises which help you in a long run.

Dear lybrate user the symptoms you described are ruminating thoughts, magical thinking. There may be more and that you may be consciously acting on them or avoiding something to get relieved of inner distress. Medications and in severe cases ect may help. But in your case you want something which you can do by yourslef, so my suggestion to you is that when you get the thoughts you should try to distract yourself by say listening to your favourite music or say do something of your interest or talk to someone you admire in life but donot talk about the thoughts that are goung in your mindmind but rather talk something else or say you may keep a band tied around your wrist and just flick it on your wrist whenever an irrestible thought gets into your head. I hope by doing this you may get over some of your distress. Do tell me more about yourself and you problems. Take care.

Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?

Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?
Shruti (name changed) aged 25 years, BA, homemaker and mother of two kids was a good cook and managed her house to perfection, much to anybody's envy until one day she started experiencing sudden severe headache and backache.
These symptoms made her incapable of carrying out her household duties as efficiently as she used to earlier.
Concerned with her pain & apparent symptoms severity, her husband took her to a general physician who prescribed a battery of tests including MRI Brain only to find no abnormality.
Attending Physician prescribed some multivitamin syrups & pain killer medicines & also tried to assure the family that NOTHING was wrong with Shruti.
However, she continued to complain of body aches and headaches, with resultant chaos on home management front compelling her husband to hire a maid to look after all the work including health of Shruti.
Shruti started feeling guilty about this & she started remaining aloof and also had trouble sleeping at night.
Frustrated with the added financial pressure and Shruti's ever increasing health complains, her husband accused her of faking it in order to avoid doing work.
Her in-laws added fuel to the fire citing it was all a drama. This further added to Shruti's sense of guilt and her appetite significantly reduced. 4 months after onset of these symtoms, Shruti lost 10kg weight.
She started remaining on the bed for hours and hardly interacted with anyone. She also started voicing ideas of ending her life in order to relieve everyone off her responsibility & enabling them to lead a happy life!
Now concerned, her parents took the matter in their hands & took her to a psychiatrist.
At the psychiatrist’s clinic, after detailed evaluation , Shruti was diagnosed to be suffering from depression (severe without psychotic symptoms) and the psychiatrist pointed out that the headaches & unexplained body aches were a the starting points of depression itself. She was started on medications and counselling therapy and within 2 months time she recovered completely & once again happily assumed her normal HOME MINISTERS ROLE!
Depression is one of the most common mental disorder and seen in every 4 out of 100 persons as per World health organization (WHO) data
When one thinks of depression; a sad, tearful face comes to mind. But depression is more than just that. unexplained headaches, body pains, sleeping difficulties are often the presenting complaints of depression. Other presentations of depression are chronic tiredness, joint pain,back pain, gastrointestinal problems including frequent acidity, indigestion, appetite changes etc. without any probable detectable physical cause
Depression contributes greatly to the disability caused by headache and backaches. More than 50% of patients with depression who visit general practitioners complain only of physical symptoms and in most cases, these symptoms include pain. If physicians test all pain patients for depression, they might discover 60% of currently undetected depression in their OPD.
Complete Recovery from an episode of depression is possible & achievable to everyone after proper treatment with medicines, counselling sessions & lifestyle modifications!
Next time while visiting your general Physician for any of aforementioned pain symptoms, do ask.....''AM I SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION? DO I NEED TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST? AM I RECEIVING ANY MEDICINE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN ONLY UNDER SUPERVISION OF A PSYCHIATRIST??''
Remember, Mental Illnesses are TREATABLE!!

I am engineering student and I am felling some depressed last 1 year. Please help me.

My voice was very good. I use to smoke but quit 2 months back. But if I speak continuously even 10 mnts also. My voice getting rough. Please do the needful.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, Clinical Elective

Quitting smoking is not supposed to be related to hoarseness of voice. But, during the initial period after quitting you may experience throat irritation and increased cough. If that is what you have, you can relax. Otherwise consult ENT specialist for change of voice.

What's the deference between stress and anxiety? Which one of these is very unpleasant?

General Physician,
Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at one time or another. The difference between them is that stress is a response to a threat in a situation. Anxiety is a reaction to the stress.

You need to be patient with the current situation as you are still in Postpartum situation and is physically and mentally strained. You need to cope up with the situation with patience. Since your husband and in laws are not co-operating with you, you need to speak to them about your illness and condition and speak out with a counsellor and let them be informed of your situation. But make it sure you need time to nurture the baby and as you are not well you need to rest and take good nutrition and rest. You have to improve your Self esteem and be assertive about your needs and not aggressive. If you still find worse contact your own doctor as to what to do.

Hi, I feel intense emotions way too much and can't stop thinking about the trauma that had faced in life. I fall ill too quickly and that pain shows up on my face all the time. I don't cry easily in from of my family or friends. But I easily get hurt or offended, and cry hard in closed doors. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Emotions are part of life. Emotions are triggered externally or internally. It is true irrespective of sex. Both male and female are emotional. Once emotion is triggered, it has to be vent out. Controlling emotion can be disastrous. You should not try to control the emotions once they are triggered. Take care.
