Currently, there are no treatments prescribed for PVL in Allopathy. All treatments administered are in response to secondary pathologies that develop as a consequence of the PVL. Because white matter injury in the periventricular region can result in a variety of deficits, neurologists must closely monitor infants diagnosed with PVL in order to determine the severity and extent of their conditions. Patients are typically treated with an individualized treatment. It is crucial for doctors to observe and maintain organ function: visceral organ failure can potentially occur in untreated patients. Additionally, motor deficits and increased muscle tone are often treated with individualized physical and occupational therapy treatments. You may try out alternative therapies in addition to Occupational therapy and physiotherapy.

Bipolar Disorder - Everything You Want To Know!

Also known as manic-depressive illness, bipolar disorder is not a rare diagnosis. Bipolar disorder is a mental condition that is characterized by extreme shifts in mood with constant variation in energy and activity levels. With these abnormal fluctuations and shifts, the person suffering from bipolar disorder finds it difficult to finish their everyday chores and lead a normal everyday life. Fortunately, with the right treatment and proper care, patients can recover fully.

Causes of Bipolar Disorder

  1. Genetics – A person with a blood relative who has bipolar disorder, has a higher risk of developing it
  2. Brain Chemical Imbalance – Neurotransmitters that carry signals to and from the brain to other parts of the body does not function correctly
  3. Hormonal Imbalance Certain hormonal problems can trigger the disorder
  4. Environmental Factors – Mental stress, abuse, traumatic events and other factors can elevate the risk

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

1. Signs of Manic Episodes

  • Feeling too happy for a prolonged time
  • Talking very fast with racy thoughts
  • Extremely restless and hasty
  • Being too overconfident in self
  • Gets easily distracted

  • Engaging in unsafe behavior like gambling with savings, spending too much or having impulsive sex

2. Signs of Depressive Episodes

This is the classic form of manic-depressive disorder with clear and extreme shifts in mood. Patients can have manic or mixed episodes.

2. Bipolar 2
Symptoms are less severe and are called hypomanic episodes that can involve less severe manic episodes with depression episodes as well.

3. Cyclothymia
A milder form of bipolar disorder, the patient experiences bouts of mood disturbances which alternate between feelings of being happy and sad. The patient may feel stable but will have noticeable fluctuations in mood that are usually less severe.

Treatments
The prime aim of the treatment for bipolar disorder is to lessen the frequency of manic and depressive episodes, thereby enabling them to lead a normal life.

  1. Hospitalization - Patients suffering from bipolar disorder 1 often need hospitalization if there is a big risk that they may harm themselves or others
  2. Lithium Carbonate The commonly prescribed drug for this disorder, the patients are to follow the right dosage. Anticonvulsants and antipsychotics are also prescribed along if needed.
  3. PsychotherapyMinimize the triggers that occur before the onset of the manic or depressive episodes
  4. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – Family oriented therapy to develop interpersonal skills and prevent relapses.

I have severe anxiety issues .i get weird thoughts every time I go through a tough situation. Please help.
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety treated.

I feels all the time of girls to fuck? What to do to forget that all and I can concentrate on my studies?

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. You are 16 and it is natural at this age period that you have sexual attraction towards opposite sex. This happens due to hormonal activities. There are no short cuts to divert your attention towards studies. You have to force a new studying habit. For this you have to make a time table. Include physical exercise for one hour, entertainment for one hour, outdoor games for one hour and misc for one hour. At least three hours for studies. Make such a time table and force yourself to stick to it. Within a week, this will become a habit. Take care.

No stick to one doctor. Medicines take atleast 4-6 weeks to come in full action may be more in severe depression, but it will certainly work. Also, never stop medication on your own or the patient will relapse with even more intensity of symptoms. Have faith. Its not like headache you have one pill and get over the ache, this will take time just like it took time to build up.
