Dear Lybrate user When you are addicted to something (substance abuse) your body also gets addicted and when you try to suddenly terminate your addiction your body shows the cravings in the form of withdrawal symptoms. Your body does not want any changes even if it is for your betterment and it resists such changes. Every addiction has a cause and until and unless that causes is not treated you will not get rid of the addiction. So by psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy we find the causes and treat them and also break the association of the substance and your body so that it does not show withdraw symptoms like pain in your case. Many people have gotten rid of their addictions at Bhati Mind Care. You can contact me for more information regarding this.

General Physician,
What is psychosis? Is it treatable? Is it common? How long would it last? How is it caused?
Psychosis may occur as a result of a psychiatric illness like schizophrenia. In other instances, it may be caused by a health condition, medications, or drug use. Possible symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, talking incoherently and agitation. The person with the condition usually isn't aware of his or her behaviour. Treatment may include medication and talk therapy.

DICORATE Er. 750 Mg. Tabs. Consumig daily for BIPOLAR disease one in night time before sleeping. Age of patient is 27 years. As the doctor advice him that, this tablet should be used through the life. Is it correct? Is there any alternate medicine for curring this disease? if it so pl. Advise us to contact suitable doctor. And clarify my doubts.

The medication you are taking for bipolar is one of the best medications for this disorder. However, a thorough evaluation and review of illness history and treatment records will be needed to comment on the duration of treatment. There are alternative medicines available, but the need for them can only be determined after examination. Additionally, considering that the medication is being consumed for a long time, it will be advisable to get certain blood tests to rule out common adverse effects of the medicine, at regular intervals. I advise you to get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above. Take care.

My husband is 35 years old. He is very aggressive and violent. He never lets me express my feelings when he hurts me with his behaviour. On the contrary he starts blaming me giving superstitious reasons. This is affecting our marriage very badly. He is irregular in his work. Spending days at home, watching tv, playing games on mobile or else sleeping but not going to work giving some reason or the other. If he does any work of an hour or so he talks high of it but not regularly going for job. He lies too much to escape confrontation. There is always fight between us and he blames me for it calling me jinx. Although ours is a love marriage. Suddenly he has turned hostile towards me. He misbehaves and quarrels with me when his mother is around specifically. I have been very patient with his violent behaviour but I also retaliate at times due to the physical and verbal abuses everyday. He never accepts his mistake and behaves very abnormal by shouting, pulling his own hair, making weird voices, making big eyes etc. This is very disturbing for me. I come from a family where my parents never raised their voices at me. Forget about beating. I have only my father in my family. My mother is no more. He knew everything from the very beginning and he was ok with it. Gradually he has started blaming my father for our bad relationship. Although my father never interferes. My father intervened once when he was physically abusing me and my husband raised his hands on my father too. I am unable to cope up with his behaviour. Kindly advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am a little concerned that he is becoming so dysfunctional and finding excuses to justify it. Also a lot of his behavior could come under some pathological condition that he may need immediate help. I suggest that you both go for marriage counseling and work out your issues and if that counselor sees the need for him to seek psychiatric intervention, he would need to do so, and maybe he will be more receptive if the suggestion came from the professional. If he is unwilling to come with you, you at least go and meet with the counselor and describe the situation as objectively as you can. You will be guided as to what can be done to help you cope. You should not tolerate violence at any cost: this will lead to a pattern so that later it will become near impossible to correct it. If he has any disturbance in his personality, then he himself may not realize his misdeeds. If left untreated, he could become worse. Keep your father out of this as much as possible and seek professional help soon.

These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear friend it is very normal looking at your depression history for you to lack motivation. What needs to be worked on is slow and steady work. On creating a burning desire to have a different life. And in order to create this change you need support and step by step guidance. Someone who understands you and your stage and have knowledge to guide you through change process one step at a time and one day at a time. You need to consult a psychologist. If someone has positive psychology and life coaching back ground that would be great. Feel free to contact me for initial free consultation via my website. Wishing you very best.

I suffer from ocd last 1 year and I take daxid 10, mg uvox 100 mg, rexipra 50 mg. Now I want baby but my gynecologist say don't take this medicine but my psychologist say this medicine is not causes any defect to the baby taking before and during pregnancy so please tell me what I do?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Many Gyne are ignorant in the way, they never understand OCD or for that matter any psychiatric disorder. For OCD you need continuous treatment. Consult your psychiatrist and take minimum effective dose and least number of medications with which you can manage symptoms, (this differs from each individual). Also, you have to discuss the risk-benefit ratio for taking the medications during pregnancy. All the best. If your Gyne is insisting, ask her to give in writing that these medicines need to be stopped, she will not do that, because she does not know its pharmacology at all.

5 Causes Of Hand Pain!

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
5 Causes Of Hand Pain!

There are 27 bones in the human hand. An injury to any one of them or a disease that affects the bones, tendons, muscles or blood vessels in the hand, are the most likely causes for pain in the hand and tenderness.

Some of the most common conditions that cause hand pain are:

  1. De Quervain's Tendinitis: Pain on and around the thumb is the characteristic sign of this condition. This pain may develop gradually or come on suddenly and can travel the length of the thumb and forearm. De Quervain's tendinitis is caused by the swelling of wrist tendons at the base of the thumb. Repetitive actions and overuse are the most common triggers for this condition.

  2. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are felt mainly in the thumb, index finger and middle finger. This pain is often worse at night and is caused by the swelling of inflamed tendons at the base of the hand that puts pressure on the median nerve. This syndrome can make it very difficult for a person to grip objects.

  3. Fractures: The fracture can cause extreme pain along with stiffness, swelling and loss of movement. A fracture refers to the breaking of a bone and can be of many types including simple fractures, complex fractures, comminuted fractures and compound fractures. The type of fracture dictates the type of treatment required. Spraining a muscle in the hand is another leading cause of pain in the hands.

  4. Arthritis: This is one of the most common causes of pain in the hand that is related to ageing. Arthritis causes loss of cartilage that makes the movement of one bone against the other extremely painful. It may or may not also be accompanied by swelling. When it comes to the hand, arthritis affects the base of the thumb and middle or top joints of the fingers. Osteoarthritis may also cause bony nodules to be formed on the fingers.

  5. Trigger Finger: This condition is also known as stenosing tenosynovitis. This condition locks the fingers or thumb in a bent position. This condition is triggered by the flexor tendons getting irritated. These tendons control the movements of the thumb and fingers. As the tendon is inflamed, the sheath that surrounds the tendons may also thicken and nodules may form of the affected tendons. People suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, gout and diabetes are at a high risk of suffering from this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

Compulsive Sexual Behaviour - How to Manage It?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Compulsive Sexual Behaviour - How to Manage It?

One of the emerging psychiatric disorder that has significant medical and psychiatric consequences is compulsive sexual behaviour or hypersexuality, is an obsession with sexual thoughts in which people cannot manage their sexual behaviour. It may involve a commonly enjoyable sexual experience as self-stimulation which becomes an obsession. The person suffering from the condition may also get involved in sexual behaviours that are outside the bounds of commonly accepted conduct like paying for sex or having extramarital affairs.

Untreated compulsive sexual behaviour damages one’s self-esteem, health, job, relationships and career. However, with treatment and self-help, one can manage compulsive sexual behaviour and learn to manage one’s urge. Males are more likely to be unfaithful than females because they have stronger sexual impulses and weaker self-control. Compulsive sexual behaviour symptoms vary in type and severity. During intense sexual impulses, one feels as if they're beyond control. This is the first and the most common symptom as the patient uses compulsive sexual behaviour as an escape route for problems like loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress. One has trouble establishing and maintaining emotional closeness, even if one is married or in a committed relationship.

The treatment for compulsive sexual behaviour involves psychotherapy and medications. A primary goal of treatment is to help one manage urges and reduce excessive behaviours while maintaining healthy sexual activities. If one has compulsive sexual behaviour, one may need treatment for mental health condition. People with compulsive sexual behaviour often have alcohol or drug abuse problems or a mood disorder such as depression.

Counselling sessions can help one learn how to manage one’s compulsive sexual behaviour. Intensive treatment programs for compulsive sexual behaviours focus on identification of core triggers and beliefs about sexual addiction. It assists in development of healthier choices and coping skills to minimize urges and deal with the preoccupation of sexual addiction. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can prove to be very useful as it focuses on increasing one’s awareness of unconscious thoughts and behaviours, and developing new insights into their motivations. Resolving conflicts using this therapy is also recommended. The other kind of treatment program is cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy helps one to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviours and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Family therapy and couples therapy may restore trust, minimize shame and guilt thus establishing a healthy sexual relationship between partners.

Medications include anti-depressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, mood stabilizers and anti-androgens have also been used to treat compulsive sexual behaviour. Anti-androgens are prescribed as it reduces the biological effects of sex hormones in men thus reducing sexual urges. Luteinizing hormone is also prescribed as it reduces obsessive sexual thoughts by reducing the production of testosterone. Anti-seizure medications, naltrexone, and medications which decrease male hormones have been found to decrease the compulsive urges and impulses associated with sexual addictions for some sufferers. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Nice to hear you dont want to hurt your parents feelings, now very few think these days this way. The chances of success of so called love and arranged marriage are the same. Marriage is a culmination of two families in Indian culture. The decision to marry a person of ur choice is not wrong, but should encompass various factors of family compatibility, educational match, and so on. Mere love at first sight, love due to physical attraction and love due to unexplained emotional attraction are more of infatuation (puppy love) and mostly dont stand the test of time. Ask this guy to tell your parents that he loves you and ask him to get their approval? let s see how he responds

Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

It is a matter of appreciation as you care for stray Dogs. You seems to be deeply involved in this caring service therefore it is natural that these dogs and society's bad treatment towards them remains in your constant thoughts. And it flashes in your sleep. This is but natural and normal. But I would advise you to control your sensitivity. You are doing what you can do the best. Other things are not in your hands so you are helpless in this regard. Have satisfaction from what you are doing, forget about the ideal situation which will never happened.
