Hi lybrate-user, welcome to Lybrate. I understand the situation you are in and thoughts that come in such situation. My advice to you is. 1. Your marks is the reflection of your ability, it already says you are good enough to grab a seat. But since there is huge difference in the number of medical seats available and the candidates, obviously some get and some do not. There is no need to feel negative about it. You should see the marks and analyze yourself what you can do to get better score next time. 2. Life is bigger than the exam, so think life in a bigger perspective and force yourself and start preparing for the next. 3. If none of these working, you can revert back, medicine and counseling do help. Regards.

What is Bipolar Disorder? Know Its Symptoms And Diagnosis!

What is Bipolar Disorder? Know Its Symptoms And Diagnosis!

Bipolar disorder is the medical term for extreme depression and mood swings that are abnormal or too frequent. The mood swings may go from depression to mania, where the symptoms may border on suicidal behaviour, and other such dangerous tendencies. Find out more about Bipolar Disorder with this article.

- Main Symptoms: The major symptoms of Bipolar Disorder are hypomania and depression. The patient may swing between these two states on a sudden basis. The dramatic mood swings do not have a set routine or pattern and can strike at any given time. The patient may be in a certain kind of state for a prolonged period like many weeks and months, or can even be in a certain state for a matter of days, before the next mood strikes. While hypomania is a very severe outcome of Bipolar Disorder, many people do not recognise it as a problem until it gets out of hand. This state can actually make a person feel high on energy where the patient may also achieve all-time highs in terms of productivity and a sense of wellbeing. This state can switch to a state of depression and hopelessness within a matter of days or weeks.

- Types: Bipolar Disorder can be categorised into many types, depending on the level and severity of the mood swings. To begin with, Bipolar Disorder I has full blown cycles of ups and downs in the mood of the patient. The up mood never really manifests into full fledged mania. This is a more mild form of the disease, and the symptoms are often missed. Rapid Cycling is another form of Bipolar Disease where a patient may experience at least four or even more episodes of major mood swings within a period of 12 months. Further, Mixed Bipolar is a form of the disease where the depression and elevation may come together or in rapid succession of each other. Cyclothymia is another mild form of this mood disorder and comes with subtle changes in one's mood.

- Diagnosis and Treatment: While the diagnosis is done by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist with the help of an examination of the symptoms, the treatment includes long term counselling and therapy as well as medication for more severe cases. The drugs and therapy aim at making the mind more stable with psychotherapy. Drugs like lithium or benzodiazepine can also be prescribed to control sleeplessness and hyperactivity as well as hostility and suicidal tendencies.

Talking and discussing things are the foremost methods used by psychiatrists when it comes to treating this disease. Persistent mood alterations must be run past a specialist in the field.

Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety and Stress!

Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety and Stress!

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology. It has been known for long that Homeopathy has no side effects on a person's overall health and thus it should be implemented in curing mental and physical stress. Mental stress may result from a person's coping skills. You may respond to stress in a wrong way and this further complicates your situation.

You may fail to control your instinctive reactions. Medications in Homeopathy can actually remedy disorders regarding stress management. In many cases, it has been noticed that a physiological disease has a psychological impetus to itself. For instance, people falling under the 'Type A personality' category are more susceptible to heart problems. Their heart problems can be serious enough to make them undergo bypass surgeries. An operation can be avoided if only reasons behind problems at the surface are understood. Patients belonging to the 'Type A personality' category can suffer from 'hurry sickness' with symptoms like bouts of anger, impatience, aggression and hurriedness. These factors together enhance the risk of having heart problems later in life.

The following medicines tackle disorders without any side effects;

  1. Homeopaths advise you to take Aconitum napellus to reduce physical stress. Aconite napellus is known to treat problems such as a dry mouth, an irritable skin, a pounding heart and so on so forth. This can even cure problems resulting from a traumatic episode in past.
  2. Another Homeopathic medicine prescribed to deal with anxieties about future is Arsenicum album. If you have fears about your safety, about certainty or about what future has in store for you, this medicine can help you out.
  3. The medicine Phosphorus is known to treat fears of being alone. Many people are afraid of being alone. They need company all the time. Phosphorus also tackles common fears such as fear of thunderstorms, fear of the dark or fear of ghosts for that matter.
  4. People facing anxieties about health or anxieties about death often evade sleeping at night. They hallucinate and see apparitions. Mental stress therefore leads to physical stress. Kali- arsenicosum is one Homeopathic medicine to take care of such problems.

Homeopathy as an alternative branch of medicine, comes to your relief without causing other bodily problems during the course of treatment. Hence, to fight mental or physical stress you must try out Homeopathy.

Among the various modes of depression management, homeopathy is considered to be an effective remedy.

Here is a list of the top homeopathic medicines which are used for tackling depression, along with the symptoms when they are applied:

  5. Cimicifuga: This effective homeopathic remedy is used for people who suffer from bipolarity. They may be quite energetic and talkative during good times, but during periods of depression, they become gloomy and dull. Neck aches, headaches and painful menstrual periods in women are also likely.
  6. Ignatia amara: This homeopathic medicine is used in the case of people who are very sensitive and tend to suppress their feelings of grief and disappointment. They do not want to seem too much defensive, moody, or vulnerable in the eyes of other people. They may burst into laughter and tears all of a sudden without a proper reason. Abdominal cramps, insomnia, and headaches are other symptoms.
  7. Kali phosphoricum: Another effective homeopathic medicine used in the management of depression is Kali phosphoricum. People who need these medicines feel depression after long periods of emotional stress. Nervousness, exhaustion, insomnia, anemia, increased cold sensitivity, and reduced concentration are experienced.

It all started when I was in engineering 2nd year (july 2015) when friends starts passing taunts on me. One after one incident happened in my life. And day by day I was getting depressed. The more I was getting depressed, the more I was consuming ganja (weed) and the number of taunts, comments (comments which took my imagination to my history which hurted me) were also increasing. And also under the consumption of ganja I was losing my imagination power by every time imagining something which I did not wanted to. It was all over depression, ganja, taunts, uncontrollable imagination. Than in Feb 2017, I started facing very heavy constant headache, heavy head, sometimes shortness of breath, depression, irritability, inability to sit somewhere etc. This all gone continuously for few months than I have to leave my college due to this mental health. In August, my parents took me to psychiatrist and I came under medications and counselling, it was somewhat a relief for me because my headache reduced and I was relaxed somewhat and because I was getting my health back I was happy and consumed ganja (weed) continuously for three days. 1st day of three days I discovered what panic attack is? In my life, than on second day I took it like its ok it happens sometime and had panic attack on that day too. But 3rd day was another worst day of my life when the magnitude of panic attack was so high that I felt I will die and went running to hospital & was admitted in emergency ward of hospital, having a pipe going through my nose to lungs so that I can breathe. It was a heavy panic attack. But all did not went right, I was continuously taking medicines so side effects started taking place like abdominal swelling, weight gain etc. So I changed my psychiatrist in january 2017 and started taking another psychiatrist medicine but under the medication of this psychiatrist, at evening time I felt like I was drunk or in nisha of something. But due to the degree of psychiatrist I trusted him and continued his medicines thinking 'jo hoga dekha jayega' but suddenly after 1 month a huge panic attack came again and I was on bed continuously for 3 days. Than again I have to go back to my old psychiatrist. He gave me medicine, I was getting relaxed and started feeling good but again those side effects of abdominal swelling and overweight started arising. So next I decided to go to delhi (october 2017 starting) and take the best psychiatrist medicine, and he prescribed me with some medicine (prescription attached) .and now I am taking medicines but still those old symptoms of panic attacks, constant headache, heavy head, anxiety, depression, uncontrollable thinking, restlessness, sexual irritability etc is there... At last, I want to know, will I be ever cured in my life? Will I be able to breathe like normal human being, will I be able to live my life normally? Will I get normal someday? .How much time will it take me to get my health back and live a healthy life? .Please tell me, answer me. I am really depressed with this. Every night before sleeping I think how will I live another day with this health?

Hello lybrate-user, Life is beautiful but it depends upon our perception. I think you need to keep yourself occupied in different things .Plan your day .Make and write a workable schedule and paste the paper in your room .Try to stick to it. Have time for work, include complete entertainment time, physical exercise to sweat (20 min) atleast .(as it releases happy hormone) and time to talk to God. Be in the company of lively people and spread happiness. I am sure all this will certainly make a difference. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user, Good that you recognised the shortcoming but it is not impossible to overcome it. I think you just need to feel confident about the qualities you have .Better write them on a paper and put it in your almirah or your room .For making such a list you can take help of the people who love you and are close to you. Read that list ,take pride in it and keep making even the smallest of the things to it .Don't let others overpower you. Remember ,no one can ride your back until it is bent. Do the homework well, to feel confident and at times we are all bound to make mistakes. Watch inspiring and confident people but only for the sake of learning, not to feel inferior, at all. Read good and motivational books. Keep upgrading yourself. All the best.

I'm a 26 years old and i've got serious anxiety issues. I get too anxious and tense during exams or anything that tests my credibility. I get too emotional and at times I can not get it under control. This happens as I get too attached to certain things to the extent that I find it difficult breathing. It happened with silliest things like when a tv series that I watched ends or things like when I lost my girl friend etc. Initially I neglected this and I thought it's a common attribute to all the people. But i'm not able to be successful in exams and a lot f negativity is catching up. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Hello lybrate-user, great to hear that you are aware of the issues that trouble you .Now you only need to think otherwise to change it. The kind of anxiety you go through is very common and very normal .The only difference is that not many people share it so we don't get to know about others woes. Relax, pl remember that no exam is final and there is always a next time. Believe in yourself ,give your best have faith in God .Do you know that even if we forget Him, He does not forgets us. Our role is to just try our best without loosing control over ourselves. Try to tell yourself to not to brood over any anxiety provoking thoughts. And above all don't let others affect you, your inner peace. Look for your strengths and work further .Ups and downs are part of everyone's life.

Everyone of us hold lots of irrational demands from ourselves and surroundings which makes us stressed out and depressed. Identify what you are thinking? If you think that she should pay attention to you, she should talk to you or she should respond to you, it's natural but understand that it's her choice what to do. Can you control other's thinking and behavior? No. You can only change your thinking and behavior. Your thinking is responsible for ur depression. Think practically and rationally and always accept the reality. Trust yourself and be ready to face reality.

5 Signs You Might Be Hallucinating!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
5 Signs You Might Be Hallucinating!

Serious mental disorders and side effects to varied medicines may cause hallucinations in many individuals. Psychosis and Schizophrenia are the most commonly known causes that may cause this condition. Hallucinations are sensations and feelings that may appear as real to the patient, convincing him or her of the occurrence of things that are not really happening in reality. Hearing voices, seeing people, and experiencing things that no one else can, are some of the ways in which hallucinations work.

Let us find out the varied signs and symptoms of this condition.

  1. Hearing Voices: One of the most common signs of hallucinations includes hearing voices. You may hear voices from people who cannot be seen or heard by other people around you. In such cases, you may have the distinct feeling of hearing these voices from within or from a source outside your own mind and body. In many cases, you may feel like these voices are trying to talk to you or give you a certain message. Ringing of the ears on a persistent basis may also be experienced in such cases.

  2. Visual Hallucinations: These hallucinations will make the patient see things. In such cases, the patient may be witness to a scene that cannot be seen by anyone else – a scene that may not be happening in reality. In visual hallucinations, the patient may also see people that other people in the room or the area cannot see. The patient may also see objects and other creatures like insects crawling across his or her hand, and may react with fear or anxiety, when in reality, no such scene may be happening. These kind of hallucinations also cause occipital seizures where the patient will see spots, shapes and rings of brightly coloured lights that may be coming towards him or her, or even encircle him or her.

  3. Feeling Things: These kinds of hallucinations will make the patient feel things that may not really be happening. For example, these hallucinations will make the patient feel hot during winters or feel a blast of air even when there has been none.

  4. Taste Hallucinations: In these hallucinations, the patient may get a salty taste from sweet food, or vice versa. These hallucinations make the patient imagine that he or she tastes a certain flavor when in reality, this may not be true. These are also called gustatory hallucination.

  5. Olfactory Hallucinations: These hallucinations have to do with odd smells that the patient may get a whiff of. In these hallucinations, the patient imagines certain smells like burning, or other odours. Patients may also feel that their own bodies are letting out certain odours which may not be the actual case.  

Delusion vs. Hallucination

A delusion is a false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everybody else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not one ordinarily accepted by other members of the person's culture or subculture (e.g., it is not an article of religious faith).

A hallucination occurs when environmental, emotional, or physical factors such as stress, medication, extreme fatigue, or mental illness cause the mechanism within the brain that helps to distinguish conscious perceptions from internal, memory-based perceptions to misfire. As a result, hallucinations occur during periods of consciousness. They can appear in the form of visions, voices or sounds, tactile feelings (known as haptic hallucinations), smells, or tastes.

Delusions are a common symptom of several mood and personality-related mental illnesses, including schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, shared psychotic disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder. They are also the major feature of delusional disorder. Individuals with delusional disorder suffer from long-term, complex delusions that fall into one of six categories: persecutory, grandiose, jealousy, erotomanic, somatic, or mixed.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Parent's Guide to ADHD!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Parent's Guide to ADHD!

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is among the most common neurobehavioral disorders presenting for treatment in children and adolescents. ADHD is often chronic with prominent symptoms and impairment spanning into adulthood. ADHD is often associated with co-occurring disorders including disruptive, mood, anxiety, and substance abuse. The diagnosis of ADHD is clinically established by review of symptoms and impairment. The biological underpinning of the disorder is supported by genetic, neuroimaging, neurochemistry and neuropsychological data. Consideration of all aspects of an individual’s life needs to be considered in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. 

Multimodal treatment includes educational, family, and individual support. Psychotherapy alone and in combination with medication is helpful for ADHD and comorbid problems. Pharmacotherapy including stimulants, noradrenergic agents, alpha agonists, and antidepressants plays a fundamental role in the long-term management of ADHD across the lifespan. 

The management of ADHD includes consideration of two major areas: non-pharmacological (educational remediation, individual and family psychotherapy) and pharmacotherapy.

I personally support Psychotherapy. Specialized educational planning based on the child’s difficulties is necessary in a majority of cases. Since learning disorders co-occur in one-third of ADHD youth, ADHD individuals should be screened and appropriate individualised educational plans developed. Educational adjustments should be considered in individuals with ADHD with difficulties in behavioral or academic performance. Increased structure, predictable routine, learning aids, resource room time, and checked homework are among typical educational considerations in these individuals. Similar modifications in the home environment should be undertaken to optimize the ability to complete homework. For youth, frequent parental communication with the school about the child’s progress is essential. 

Symptoms in children and teenagers 

The symptoms of ADHD in children and teenagers are well defined, and they're usually noticeable before the age of six. They occur in more than one situation, such as at home and at school. The main signs of each behavioural problem are detailed below:

  1. Inattentiveness: having a short attention span and being easily distracted making careless mistakes – for example, in schoolwork appearing forgetful or losing things being unable to stick at tasks that are tedious or time-consuming appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instructions constantly changing activity or task having difficulty organising tasks 
  2. Hyperactivity and impulsiveness: being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings constantly fidgeting being unable to concentrate on tasks excessive physical movement excessive talking being unable to wait their turn acting without thinking interrupting conversations little or no sense of danger 

These symptoms can cause significant problems in a child's life, such as underachievement at school, poor social interaction with other children and adults, and problems with discipline. 

Related conditions in children and teenagers 

Although not always the case, some children may also have signs of other problems or conditions alongside ADHD, such as: 

  • anxiety disorder – which causes your child to worry and be nervous much of the time; it may also cause physical symptoms, such as a rapid heartbeat, sweating and dizziness 
  • oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) – this is defined by negative and disruptive behaviour, particularly towards authority figures, such as parents and teachers 
  • conduct disorder – this often involves a tendency towards highly antisocial behaviour, such as stealing, fighting, vandalism and harming people or animals 
  • depression 
  • sleep problems – finding it difficult to get to sleep at night, and having irregular sleeping patterns 
  • autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) – this affects social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour 
  • epilepsy – a condition that affects the brain and causes repeated fits or seizures 
  • Tourette’s syndrome – a condition of the nervous system, characterised by a combination of involuntary noises and movements called tics 
  • learning difficulties – such as dyslexia Symptoms in adults In adults, the symptoms of ADHD are more difficult to define. This is largely due to a lack of research into adults with ADHD. 

ADHD is a developmental disorder; it's believed that it can't develop in adults without it first appearing during childhood. But it's known that symptoms of ADHD often persist from childhood into a person's teenage years, and then adulthood. Any additional problems or conditions experienced by children with ADHD, such as depression or dyslexia, may also continue into adulthood. By the age of 25, an estimated 15% of people diagnosed with ADHD as children still have a full range of symptoms, and 65% still have some symptoms that affect their daily lives. The symptoms in children and teenagers, which are listed above, is sometimes also applied to adults with possible ADHD. But some specialists say that the way in which inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness affect adults can be very different from the way they affect children. For example, hyperactivity tends to decrease in adults, while inattentiveness tends to get worse as the pressure of adult life increases. Adult symptoms of ADHD also tend to be far more subtle than childhood symptoms. 

Some specialists have suggested the following list of symptoms associated with ADHD in adults: 

  • carelessness and lack of attention to detail 
  • continually starting new tasks before finishing old ones 
  • poor organisational skills 
  • inability to focus or prioritise 
  • continually losing or misplacing things 
  • forgetfulness 
  • restlessness and edginess 
  • difficulty keeping quiet and speaking out of turn 
  • blurting out responses and often interrupting others 
  • mood swings, irritability and a quick temper 
  • inability to deal with stress 
  • extreme impatience 
  • taking risks in activities, often with little or no regard for personal safety or the safety of others – for example, driving dangerously 

Additional problems in adults with ADHD As with ADHD in children and teenagers, ADHD in adults can occur alongside several related problems or conditions. One of the most common conditions is depression. Other conditions that adults may have alongside ADHD include: 

  • personality disorders – conditions in which an individual differs significantly from an average person, in terms of how they think, perceive, feel or relate to others 
  • bipolar disordera condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another 
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – a condition that causes obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour 

The behavioural problems associated with ADHD can also cause problems such as difficulties with relationships, social interaction, drugs and crime. Some adults with ADHD find it hard to find and stay in a job. If you notice any of the above in your child or yourself , it is worth making the effort and spending some time and money to have your child and or yourself assessed on a priority basis as ADHD causes neural changes in the brain.

stress always have negative impact on our personal, professional n occupational life. Dreams is a mirror of unconscious mind. In other words, whatever we tend to suppressed in our mind, gets released through our dreams. Now you need to work on releasing your negative thoughts by practicing different relaxation techniques - Deep breathing, OAM chanting, listening instrumental music, yoga, stretching exercises. It should be practiced as frequently as you get unwanted thoughts. when mind is positive and stable, you will be able to get sound sleep.

First of all, accept your dream and accept it is only a dream which emerges from suppressed needs, wishes, desires, conflicts in our unconscious mind. We can never ever judge what's being suppressed in our unconscious mind. It's like a huge storage room in which we have dropped so many unwanted memories and thoughts from our childhood till today.
