I have a chest pain last 4 days. I take so mch personal tension. Is the pain reason by tension.
Dear lybrate user, now a days every other person is having high stress levels. The changing life style, nuclear families, pollution, very demanding jobs, dissatisfaction in relationships are the major causes of stress. It is advisable that you share your worries with someone you trust. By doing this you will lighten your burden and also might get a different perspective about the difficulties in your life. At the same time, do not take chest pain lightly. The pain may be because of stress or any other physical ailment. Please get yourself checked. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user! do not worry about the concentration problem, which is very common in teen age. 1. Avoid getting tension 2. Always be cool and relax 3. Avoid if you have any bad habits like smoking, masturbation, drinks 4. Always do not tense about studies 5. Daily meditate for 30 minutes - your concentration will be improve, initially its seems some how tough, but try to practice, you can have very good contration 6. Take more dry fruits, vegetbales 7. Take more fish - which contains - omega acids- help in developing concentration 8. Take more spinach 9. Have some regular exercise for 3o minutes daily 10. Any individual can concentrate oly for 20 minute, so while studying take break for 5 minute of every 20 minutes. Wish you all the best for your studies thank you

Dear, You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

Dear Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help

Dear Lybrate user. You are a matured and learned person. I think you know much more than me or many of your younger counterparts. In fact life teaches us many things. No one gets irritated onto someone without any reason. In many cases, the reason should be the presumption. When you have enough of such experiences, you will change automatically. Wait and watch. Take care.

Well Mr. lybrate-user the symptoms you are describing maybe due to social Anxiety/social phobia you may be experiencing. These symptoms are usually present in social situations, leading a desire for escape or avoid those situations. Usually shyness, behavioral inhibition are predisposing factors. Relaxing techniques, skills training, can reduce your symptoms. If your problems are persisting kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Feeling anxious, developing palpitations, and not feeling comfortable while talking to someone or in social situations is suggestive of social anxiety disorder. However, more details would be required in order to reach a definitive diagnosis. You should consider seeking a psychiatric consultation and get yourself completely evaluated. Social anxiety disorder is a treatable disorder and treatment with medications and cognitive behaviour therapy will help you get better. Best wishes.

It seems to me that you are not following up the psychiatic treatment properly and also that your physical conditions are caused by your mental illness which needs a long term treatment. Side effects generally will last for 2 to 4 weeks and your body will get adjusted soon. If the side effects persist more than a month do not hesitate to check with your psychiatrist who can make changes accordingly.

Hi there ~ You probably have generalize anxiety disorder with claustrophobia. You may feel like your worries come from the outside—from other people, events that stress you out, or difficult situations you’re facing. But, in fact, worrying is self-generated. The trigger comes from the outside, but an internal running dialogue maintains the anxiety itself. When you’re worrying, you’re talking to yourself about things you’re afraid of or negative events that might happen. You run over the feared situation in your mind and think about all the ways you might deal with it. In essence, you’re trying to solve problems that haven’t happened yet, or worse, simply obsessing on worst-case scenarios. All this worrying may give you the impression that you’re protecting yourself by preparing for the worst or avoiding bad situations. But more often than not, worrying is unproductive—sapping your mental and emotional energy without resulting in any concrete problem-solving strategies or actions. Once you’ve given up the idea that your worrying somehow helps you, you can start to deal with your worry and anxiety in more productive ways. This may involve challenging irrational worrisome thoughts, learning how to postpone worrying, and learning to accept uncertainty in your life. Exercise is a natural and effective anti-anxiety treatment. It relieves tension and stress, boosts physical and mental energy, and enhances well-being through the release of endorphins, the brain’s feel-good chemicals. Any exercise that engages both your arms and legs—such as walking, running, swimming, or dancing—can be especially effective. Instead of continuing to focus on your thoughts as you exercise, though, try focusing on how your body feels as you move. Try to notice the sensation of your feet hitting the ground, for example, or the rhythm of your breathing, or the feeling of the wind on your skin. By adding this mindfulness element, by really focusing on your body and how it feels as you exercise, you’ll not only improve your physical condition faster, but you may also be able to interrupt the flow of constant worries running through your head. Many people find weight training, rock climbing, boxing, or martial arts especially effective as these activities make it easier to maintain your focus on your body movements—after all, if you don’t, you could get hurt. For maximum relief of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), try to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days—or three 10-minute sessions if that’s more convenient. Anxiety is more than just a feeling. It’s the body’s physical “fight or flight” reaction to a perceived threat. Your heart pounds, you breathe faster, your muscles tense up, and you feel light-headed. When you’re relaxed, the complete opposite happens. Your heart rate slows down, you breathe slower and more deeply, your muscles relax, and your blood pressure stabilizes. Since it’s impossible to be anxious and relaxed at the same time, strengthening your body’s relaxation response is a powerful anxiety-relieving tactic. If you struggle with GAD, relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, and meditation can teach you how to relax. Progressive muscle relaxation can help you release muscle tension and take a “time out” from your worries. The technique involves systematically tensing and then releasing different muscle groups in your body. As your body relaxes, your mind will follow. Deep breathing. When you’re anxious, you breathe faster. This hyperventilation causes symptoms such as dizziness, breathlessness, lightheadedness, and tingly hands and feet. These physical symptoms are frightening, leading to further anxiety and panic. But by breathing deeply from the diaphragm, you can reverse these symptoms and calm yourself down. Meditation. Research shows that mindfulness meditation can actually change your brain. With regular practice, meditation boosts activity on the left side of the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain responsible for feelings of serenity and joy. Many people with generalized anxiety disorder don’t know how to quickly calm and soothe themselves. But it’s a simple, easy technique to learn, and it can make a drastic difference in your anxiety symptoms. The best methods for self-soothing incorporate one or more of the physical senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch—or movement. Try the following self-soothing suggestions when your GAD symptoms are acting up: Sight – Take in a beautiful view. Look at treasured photos, works of art, or funny videos online. Close your eyes and picture a place that feels peaceful and rejuvenating. Sound – Listen to soothing music. Call an old friend. Sing or hum a favorite tune. Enjoy the sounds of nature: birds singing, ocean waves crashing on the beach, wind rustling through the trees. Smell – Light scented candles. Smell the flowers in a garden. Breathe in the clean, fresh air. Spritz on your favorite perfume. Taste – Slowly eat a favorite treat, savoring each bite. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee or herbal tea. Touch – Pet your dog or cat. Wrap yourself in a soft blanket. Sit outside in the cool breeze. Give yourself a hand or neck massage. Movement – Go for a walk or run, dance around, jump up and down or gently stretch. Support from other people is vital to overcoming generalized anxiety disorder. In fact, GAD only gets worse when you feel powerless and alone. Social interaction with someone who cares about you is the most effective way to calm your nervous system and diffuse anxiety, so it’s important to find someone you can connect with face to face on a regular basis—someone you can talk to for an uninterrupted period of time, someone who will listen to you without judging, criticizing, or continually being distracted by the phone or other people. That person may be your significant other, a family member, or a friend. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day

You need to approach your depressive symptoms professionally, rather than feeling it s your own ill doing. Depression can occur due to medical reasons or external resons or a combination of both. Consult a psychiatrist, depending on the type, and severity of depression, remedy in the form of CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and antidepressants will be suggested for recovery. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, clinical depression is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year.
