Hi ive been diagnosed with major anxiety/depressive disorder like 1.5 years back. Ive had my share of panic attacks and phases of depression. One of the physicians I showed to had ordered tests for vitamin b12 deficiency and vitamin d and they were significantly low. 150pg/ml for b12 and 20 for Vit. D after taking shots for both was fine for a long time taking paxidep25 mg daily. I made a mistake and stopped and ive had on and off phases of anxiety and restlessness. Recently mya condition deteriorated again, im feeling restless and heaviness in my legs and light headedness. I checked b12 and D again and it seems theyve dropped to 250pg/ml and 20 for vit. D again. But my psychiatrist and the general physician I contacted both say it has nothing to do with anxiety. Is this true? Or can low b12 levels make me anxious and restless.

Dear user. Low b12 level cannot contribute to anxiety. Usually the symptoms are: Weakness, tiredness, or lightheadedness. Heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Pale skin. A smooth tongue. Constipation, diarrhea, a loss of appetite, or gas. Nerve problems like numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, and problems walking. Vision loss. Work with your doctor for cure. Take care.

Why do we have to struggle a lot while some of the peoples get their destination easily?
To choose and to reach a destination, goal, there are many factors at play. Those who reach their goal earlier have their own positive attitude, circumstances, infrastructure and zeal to make it. Those who are slow, are more talented, oriented and possess the required knowledge. Being slow means more talented and capable. Therefore don't worry. Take care.

I am 45 & male. Loosing temper every now & then, head spins. Need suggestion?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
at your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Sir if one person is drinking alcohol daily so how can he avoid drinking alcohol.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
There are certain medications that can help in control of alcohol if the person is motivated to stop alcohol. In case the person is addicted or dependent on alcohol and is having withdrawals then he needs to be detoxified with use of medications and by abstaining from alcohol. He may also need to be admitted depending on his physical condition. Once detoxification is done we can counsel the patient and help him to stop alcohol with use of medications.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember for the past few days. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food. For your pimples: do not pinch it or squeeze it; eat foods which are high in fiber, exercise regularly, maintain good hygiene, sleep well, do not eat oily foods, make sure you have good bowel movements every day, drink lots of water, stay stress-free, wash your face clean before going to bed, keep your hair off of your face, and live in love.

I'm depress about any unknown reason why this happen tell me some things to stop this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I'm depress about any unknown reason why this happen tell me some things to stop this.
YOu can try the natural methods and if not helpful then you take antidepressant medicines. Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

Dear lybrate user...Lack of concentration and making careless mistakes, being restless and anxious about everything, being on the edge always shows that you have a lot of anxiety. If this anxiety is pervasive and is interfering with your social and functional domains of life it is more of an anxiety disorder. I need to know more about your symptom duration for suggesting a better management plan. Take care

Hi, From what i see, you may be suffering from Depression. It may or not be followed by any stressor. You may need to take medication and be on psychiatric treatment. You can take psychotherapy with me. Start some exercise yoga/meditation and deep breathing. Distract yourself and call up your husband whenever you get thought of suicide. You will soon be better. Eat lots of fruits like banana's, green leafy vegetables and flax seeds. If non vegetarian have fish. Recovering from depression requires action, but taking action when you’re depressed is hard. In fact, just thinking about the things you should do to feel better, like going for a walk or spending time with friends, can be exhausting. It’s the Catch-22 of depression recovery: The things that help the most are the things that are the most difficult to do. There’s a difference, however, between something that's difficult and something that's impossible. Start small and stay focused The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. consult me for any query or counseling.

One of my friend is drinking alcohol daily, his addicted to alcohol, smoking also his not able to stop it, kindly suggest me how it's stop it permanently.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines that help with smoking cessation. But with the drinking the medication involves your cousin’s full knowledge and cooperation. He may consult a psychiatrist regarding this. Now making him stop, is a very difficult and near impossible task. Even if it appears that you have succeeded, I can guarantee it will end up a failure: his willingness is paramount to his recovery, which you say is fortunately there. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for his health. I am so glad that he is seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in his recovery. He must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If he thinks that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and let him go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as his primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach he chooses, he must attend AA meetings, and his family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding his alcoholism and to support him too in the recovery process. This fabulous decision will benefit him firstly, and his entire family. He is taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.
