Naproxen is only a pain killer and if the head ache is due to depression anxiety or stress it will come down with antidepressants and antianxiety medications. You need to consult a psychiatrist asap.

Dear Luise, Since alcohol is a sedative, when you stop drinking there is difficulty in sleeping. The brain gets used to the drinks. It will ask you to give drinks by disturbing your sleep. So, doctors' first medicine when you stop alcohol is a Calmpose kind of drug. There are many types of such drugs - both tablets and injections. Few act only for 2 hours, few acts longer than 24 hours. It will be given for 2-3 weeks initially, when you stop drinking, depending on your need. It is a drug to stop you from suffering withdrawal symptoms. It may be given throughout the day also for few days so that you will not go for alcohol immediately. You will also be given motivational enhancement therapy and stress management therapy in first 12 weeks. You can also start with anticraving drugs like Acamprosate, Baclofen and Naltrexone. They postpone your craving for alcohol. Not immediately - but in 3 months or so. They also make your brain to tolerate less and less alcohol. They are costly and need to be given for 9 months to a year in appropriate dose. You can also ask for aversion therapy with Disulfiram. It makes the alcohol into a poison. The effect of poison, you don't like. You will be OK after taking the drug daily. The drug acts only when alcohol gets into your blood. Since the poison effect happens as soon as you drink, you feel like not drinking or induce vomiting after drinking. This drug is cheap, only less than Rs.2/day. It can be taken for life. Better to assign someone who will give the drug daily to you. May be your wife or mother. All the other drugs you can take by yourself.

lybrate-user the symptoms which you have described are usually non specific, but it is important to know whether you had fever or not? If you have fever kindly consult a physician. If you do not have fever, still feel tired without a reason, not able to concentrate on your work, feeling low, having a low self esteem and sleep disturbances you may be suffering from mild depression which needs to be addressed so kindly consult a psychiatrist.

If mood swings mean intense anger, follow the anger management approaches. Channel them to positive action, goals. If mood swings are between happiness and sadness, check out if there is a bipolar disorder features by seeing a psychiatrist. Medication only necessary if non medication approaches are ineffective.

You just do this small exercise: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall, straight up, making 90 degree angle for 10-15 mins. This will help you get you blood supply to brain and increase memory power too.

Impatience is like indignation, an outward projection of feeling uncared or for granted or less valued. It's a counterproductive response to seek attention by creating urgency. It displays demand which is like testing people to show they care. People will be genuinely focused on you if you mention your gratitude for their sufficing to your demands. So say thank you often and acknowledge their support for your cause. Your impatience will get security and trust from others instead of indifference and neglect.

I am 27 years old and I think I have stress and in order to avoid it what should I do it?

Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.
