Hi, I am a regular smoker I have been smoking from last 5 years I guess but yesterday something unusual happened with me as I came home after smoking. I saw blood coming out of my nose is that a serious issue or it happens with everyone?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is serious and must be investigated to know what is the damage and the likely cause. You have been smoking from the age of 15 years and so the damage for teenagers is more because your nerves were still forming and completing its formation. You have not mentioned the quantity of cigarettes consumed but it is certain to have increased over the years to be in excess. You need to stop smoking immediately and visit the doctor to check on this bleeding.

In severe stress and depression, you can develop aphthous ulcers or when immunity is down fungal ulcers too. Since you have some personal reasons, better consult a psychiatrist and get treated for your depression, else situation might worsen.

Dear , I have carefully read your question and understood it. Good health depends upon many things like- one should be free from disease, should take balanced nutritious diet, regular exercise, sufficient recreation and socialisation, adequate rest and sleep. Take more fruits, salads, sprouts, protein to keep yourself active and in good shape. You must do exercise/ gym for building your muscle. It appears that you are shy and not very social because of low self esteem. Start talking to others much, interact with your friends regularly. This will establish you as a active member of the group and they will accept you. At any point of time you may convey your feelings to others, but you should not expect the same reciprocations from others and we should respect their view.

First understand this cycle stress/anxiety----sleep disturbance-----more stress/anxiety--- less sleep-----negative thoughts-----more anxiety so main thing is to reduce the stress/anxiety. You can try some ayurvedic medicines for the same:- make a paste of amla powder mixed in buttermilk. Apply it on front part of head. Keep it for at least 30 minutes. Take 1 tablet of manas mitra vatakam and 2 capsules of tagar twice a day with normal water. Spend some time with small children (3-7 years old) ans remember, one thoughts can't change anybody's destiny or future. Almighty has already written our screenplay/story, we just have to play our character. So our thoughts are not going to change anything whether good or bad. Can contact further if needed. Ready to help get well soon.

Hi, you can reduce your anger by doing meditation daily for at least 30 min. Deep breath relaxation technique and psychotherapy can help you. If you get anger do / talk nothing for 10 -15 minutes, bcz you usually do wrong during anger. If still persists consult psychiatrist.

I sometimes feel that I am travelling back in time. Sometimes when I am sad and I try to relax, all of a sudden I feel that for a second or two, I was in place I used to visit earlier, e.g. I was in my hostel room with few friends, or at a friends home, opening slippers before getting inside. These things make me nostalgic. anyway, anytime, I remember something, and then I become sad, thinking of what all I have lost. Does it happen with many people, do they feel that they have travelled back for a few seconds? I am currently not living with my husband since 1 year as he is living abroad, I miss him, living with my parents in my hometown, I have ample time to think about my past, and regret few things, which otherwise I had forgotten when I was with my husband. Am I disturbed internally? Do I need help, as I sometimes get very sad and then I feel that I am worthless and I am counting my life backwards. I feel only my husband understands me and only he can help me from getting distracted.

Hello lybrate-user, Don't feel panic or any fear if you see your past. You can do it because you have strong visualization and it is positive. You can use this sense to create a good present and future of yours. When you want or try to relax try to visualize those things you want in your life at present and in future. Like your husband is with you and you both live happily or you are in abroad with your husband. If you can and want consult with a psychologist near from you. If you want any other help you can contact us.

Dear, 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.

In the first stage try to follow these 5 steps 1• A support system is very important. Just like drugs and alcohol addictions, no one should have to go through breaking an addiction alone. A support system can be made up of close family members, your spouse or a support group mentor. 2• Avoiding your compulsions. This may include avoiding certain places or watching porn. Avoiding your temptations is vital in trying to break your sex addiction. Because sex addicts view sex as their “high,” it’s important to know to avoid these compulsions. 3• Facing your problem. One of the top ways to recovery is admitting you have a problem. Until you admit you have a problem, nothing will help you get over sex addiction. Some people will need help getting to this stage. 4• Joining a support group. Many times people need to be around people who share the same addictions they are trying to battle. Finding like-minded people helps people discuss what they are feeling. Support groups help people realize they have a problem without being judgmental. 5• Seeking professional help. When trying to control a sex addiction on your own is no longer effective, professional help is needed. For that you will hve to visit in person because many a times face to face understanding is of great help.

Hello lybrate-user, you can try these- 1. Getting restful and uninterrupted night-time sleep (7-8 hours) 2. Don't over sleep (more than 8 hours) 3. Wear a sunscreen under the eyes when stepping out in the sun. 4. Use a pair of sunglasses and a concealer, if required. 5. Get iron and protein rich diet. 6. If blood test indicates iron deficiency take iron suppliments with the advise of your general physician. 7. Do destressing exercises like mindfulness meditation or yoga. I hope this helps you.

I will give you some information regarding the disorder. I am however unable to prescribe medications or give you specific advice regarding counseling or therapy in your situation as it would be considered confidential and private. In that case I recommend that you book an online appointment after you review my profile on this website. Several health and psychological conditions can cause or contribute to ED. These causes include: Partially- or fully-blocked blood vessels Nerve damage High cholesterol High blood pressure Heart disease Obesity Diabetes Low testosterone Metabolic syndrome Prostate cancer or enlarged prostate Damage to pelvic area Depression Lifestyle issues that can contribute to ED include: Prescription medications Illicit drugs Tobacco use Excessive alcohol consumption Sedentary lifestyle Stress, anxiety, and erectile dysfunction are closely connected. Stress and anxiety can cause ED. Plus, men facing increased stress or anxiety may also have increased blood pressure and cholesterol. Both of these conditions increase a man’s risk for ED. It’s important to understand that stress is the body’s response to life’s issues. Stress and anxiety can cause harm to your body. ED is just one of the many ways the damage manifests itself. Unfortunately, it’s a vicious cycle: ED can cause a man further stress and anxiety, which can cause additional ED issues. Each person stresses about different things. Financial concerns may keep you up at night, but relationship problems may worry a friend. All stress affects the body negatively. The following are different life stressors that may cause anxiety, which can lead to ED: Job problems, loss, or stress Relationship problems and conflicts Illness or loss of a loved one Fear of aging Changes in health Financial burdens Fears of experiencing ED may make you hesitant to engage in sexual activity, or they may discourage you from being intimate. This anxiety may eventually cause relationship problems with a loved one. You may find yourself becoming distant from your partner. You might feel less inclined to participate in sexual activity. You may also be hesitant to open up about your ED problems with your partner, which can cause additional stress and anxiety. Treatment can help end this cycle.

Sir, can you please suggest me some methods to increase my memory and concentration power?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Panic and anxiety disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of the right medications along with relaxation and behaviour therapy. Medical causes of such panic episodes also have to be investigated in detail to form the most appropriate management plan. Consult a good psychiatrist in your city with details of your complaints.
