Hi this is for my Wife, since few months we noticed that sometimes while speaking, wrong words are pops out from her mouth e.g she want to say 'honey' and the word comes out as 'ghee' or 'thousand' comes out as hundred. It happens with words only not with sentences. Along with this recently she often complains about her headaches too. Please let me know if there is anything serious, what is a cause of it and what treatment should we go for?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Well words popping out irrelevantly can be part of many problems. The first possibility is it can be due to hypothyroidism (most common) which occurs usually due to impairment in concentration. The second possibility is it can be a part of tic disorder usually vocal tics. The third possibility can be migraine headache with aura. The other most common possibility to think of is stress /depression which can also produce these symptoms. Since she is having headache my opinion is to consult both a neurologist/ psychiatrist. Neuro imaging maybe needed for her. She needs detailed clinical evaluation for a clear diagnosis to be made. Lastly don't worry in most clients we come across the problem is very mild and treatable. Your wife can be treated. Be relaxed and consult the specialist.

I am 18 years old girl and I think my boyfriend is suffering from depression. What should I do? Is break up a good thing to do?

If you truly love him, you wouldn't break up with him. You would see how much he can use the relationship as a motivation to get out of the depression. Depression is curable. If is unwilling and not cooperative, then you can take a call. In terms of helping him, there are limitations and a p[articularly concerning dynamic that can hamper and become somewhat gamey is if he puts you in a mother's role and also if he becomes passive expecting you to do all the work. Obviously, that will never work for him. So make all the rules clear about this. He4 needs to get into a good vigorous exercise program for 30 minutes every day which makes the body produce natural antidepressants, but do check with his physician before venturing to attempt this. Talk therapy helps a lot to relieve the depression, but he could also have a good and reliable confidante to do the same, like you. This is the only condition where he is required to literally do the opposite of what he feels like doing. Depression makes him want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make him too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, he will need to fight this disease. He must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. He can watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer himself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose himself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. I hope you can love him until he is through with this condition. Remember if he is not cooperative, you are wasting your time and you can quit. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in his life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If he did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate his sufferings. If he is still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you. The pro0cess is tough but not impossible.

I am a good smoker. Now a days I really like to stop smoking. But I can't. Can you help me to stop smoking.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. 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. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Pain?

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Pain?

Pain is a feeling of distress that is caused by intense damaging stimuli. It is one of the most common reasons that compels the patient to consult a physician and take painkillers. In the long run, painkillers have adverse effects on our body. While most of the times, the cause of the pain is diagnosed, there are cases in which the cause remains undiagnosed. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is based on symptoms and has no side effects and thus, it is most effective in the treatment of both muscle and joint pains.

Here we give you a list of common homeopathic pain medications that are prescribed to give relief to patients and the circumstances under which they can be used.

  1. Bryonia- It is given when there is a hot swollen joint, pain from overuse of body part or injury. The slightest movement aggravates the pain and is relieved of the pressure on the affected part.
  2. Causticum - It is recommended for muscle spasm, stiff neck and pain. The character of the pain is sharp and tearing and is caused by cold dry weather. The patient is relieved by the warmth.
  3. Arnica Montana - Arnica is suggested when a patient has sore, bruised feeling all over the body. The patient is very sensitive to the pain and everything on which he rests seems very hard. Arnica is a top remedy in case of injury from falling, sprain and bruise.
  4. Rhus Toxicodendron- A first choice of remedy in case of rheumatism and back pain. The right side of the body is especially affected. The patient experiences stiffness and aching pain that aggravates during the rainy season, in the morning, on exposure to cold and also by rest. Pain is relieved by moving the affected parts and by warmth.
  5. Cuprum Metallicum- It is given in cases of muscle twitching or severe muscle spasm. The patient feels better when the painful area is massaged.
  6. Magnesia Phosphorica - This is the best medicine for all types of pain, especially when the pain is in the right side of the body. The pain is aggravated by cold and movement and is relieved by heat and rest in the general. This is suggested to relieved lower abdomen pain during menstruation.
  7. Pulsatilla- This is an excellent remedy for rheumatic pains that shifts from one joint to another. Homeopathic medicine is suggested after a thorough understanding of patient symptoms and the medication differs from patient to patient. So it is better to consult a homeopathic physician to select a suitable medicine to get relieved from pain. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I am suffering from depression from quite a few months. I feel dizzy, physical pain, tremor in fingers, sleeplessness. I sob most of the nights gasping. Some of the days I feel super energetic Even with sleeplessness I don't feel like tired and sleepy in these days. Sometimes both happen simultaneously. Are these symptoms of bipolar? Can I be cured without medical diagnosis? Will I be live normal life again or will it ever diminish.

The symptoms you have described does not clearly fit into bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is an episodic illness with depressive episodes and manic episodes with good inter episodal recovery. They should last for a particular duration to qualify for an episode. But these symptoms could be a part of a Rapid cycling component of bipolar disorder. Anyway kindly consult a psychiatrist rather than jumping into diagnosis and get treated. And yes you can definitely lead a normal life and these symptoms can be kept under control.

You may feel like resting, but moving is good for your back. Exercises for lower back pain can strengthen back, stomach, and leg muscles. They help support your spine, relieving back pain. Always ask your health care professional before doing any exercise for back pain. Depending on the cause and intensity of your pain, some exercises may not be recommended and can be harmful.

I am very angry nd straight forward person. I am moody nd have mood swings very often. I have a big family but they r not important for me. For me my mom dad and bro just important. But when I give importance to someone and I don't get the same back I am gonna too angry nd hurt also. If I stay more than 2 days with a person then guaranteed ll hve a fight. I control myself too much. Nd try to chill with everyone sweetly. But when the other person don't give importance then I can't control myself. Ignorance nd failure I can't tolerate this two things. What should I do.

Dear lybrate user, 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. Take care.

See having sex between adults is a matter of choice. If the girl had sex with many guys, it s her wish. If you are not comfortable, stop the relationship and find a girl who suits your needs. Dont blame her for cheating you. You might feel depressed since she has not revealed her affairs, since uve come to know of it, and you are not comfortable with it, leave her and divert your mind on other activites

He is a very good person. He s now restricting himself nrestircts me to move closely as before, thinking that I should not have no more feelings for him as our marriage as we are brother and sisters is not acceptable and should not suffer much when I get married to another person but still he cares me stomach as a sister. I even thought of moving away from him but I could now because we r that much close and also want to do so as It hurts me alot wen he says me to get rid of this. I even do not bother if we go again somewhere else and marry but he is not. He says that he can not do that n it is a wrong thing.

Nowadays my vocabulary sound is not good. It's very tough for others to understand . Mostly 'S' sound is coming while talking. What to do for this ? How can I change.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.
