Chest pain irregular heartbeat and Anxiety trouble sleeping fear in public place.

Chest pain irregular heartbeat and Anxiety trouble sleeping fear in public place.
Dear Lybrate user You seem to be an introvert and social anxiety. Anxiety may disturb your sleep and also cause physical stuff like you have mentioned chest pain and irregular heartbeats. Anxiety has become very common these days. Monitor your negative thoughts that you have which make you anxious and challange those thoughts. Like your fear in public places challenge this thing amd think what is fearful in this? Many people are easily living in society with no fear at all. If you are very much conscious about yourself then stop getting carried away for the same. Try to think rationally about things which make you anxious. Remember being an introvert is not bad and introverts have the strengths as well. Identify your strengths and work on them feel proud that you have them. Many people do not have it. Have a good and timely sleep. Feed your body with good nutritious food and that too on time. Do meditation or yoga or a brisk walk in the morning. Spend time with people you love people with whom you are happy amd comfortable. Make goals in your life if you have not already. Goals regarding health finance relationships etc. And work hard to achieve them. Following your goals is a pleasant and satisfactory feeling. You can also take Mind Training from us and that too online by staying at your home only just like many other people. Contact me for more information regarding this. Good luck. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Sudden stoppage will cause some withdrawal symptoms, and it certainly is not something you should do on your own. Please consult your doctor and let him/her decide whether you must discontinue or not. Ideally, medicines must be gradually weaned off, and your reactions noted for further action. Only the doctor who has prescribed the dosage will know when and how much to withdraw.

From the brief information you have provided, it would appear that you have suffered from mixed anxiety and depressive features and its consequences (including loss of sex drive and confidence, etc.) for many years. Hopefully, the doctors you have seen, have ruled out physical causes like neurological & thyroid problems amongst others. Mental health and emotional problems warrant an integrated approach using a combination of medicine and psychotherapy. Only prescribing of medicine cannot help one to understand and overcome pain and the causes for it. It is important to engage in psychotherapy sessions to get an insight into the current problems and underlying causes, as well as a solution to remedy it. Remember, knowledge and awareness can empower you. I suggest you see a psychiatrist with interest and experience in psychotherapy or see a psychologist alongside psychiatrist. While you problems are very common, they are easily treatable provide a planned and compressive approach is adopted.

Me and my guy. Actually when I met him I even never knew that I will ever love him. He became my friend and than we intimately came close. And it became strong. It's almost 6 six year of a relationship. The things which bother me sometime of marriage I mean he is always afraid to talk about marriage. I don't maybe it's because he has very orthodox family and inter caste marriage are not allowed. He clearly says I love you but we don't have a future and I expect the same thing from you. Earlier these things bother me. Like I was always worried that what about our future. It's almost 6 years it constantly make me worry that we are intimately close we love each other we are so possessive we have sex and we care like husband wife. He is amazing. But I'm afraid. That if gonna talk to him about the future or wedding he ll get annoyed. Because this thing is not acceptable to him or I'm going according to him. This is an issue. I mean last we had a fight. I cannot tell you the whole thing. But yeah he became extremely furious. And said. I think you are taking sex too seriously. We should not be having sex or I think I should separate I do not want any hard feelings. Cause girls these days torchure boys. So I don't any problems for my future of my family. After hearing word separate! I cried like I cannot mention my feelings. And that to save that. I started saying his word (pls even I do not think of future. As you already told me that we won't have and do not worry I will never trouble you. Or something pls do not spoil. And more I said that night I won't be able to describe the whole) after seeing this you might think he is a bad Guy. But trust me. I see this when he is extremely angry. But I ve seen his love too. But I want commitment and a future together marriage I expect this from him. I don't have to discuss this with him. Because I'm too weak in front of him. I don't want to lose him. If it's the thing of parent I think we can convince them. He never talk to about it. I hope you can get my point. Pls suggest.

Hi, I do not know how good or bad he is, never heard his side of story or know him. All I can say is one sided expectations can kill you. You want to marry him and he does not want to talk about it. Its a tough situation, if you can be without any commitment go ahead, if you seriously can not think of it any more, you have to take a stand and be strong once and for all, stop talking and sternly ask him about future of you both. That's the only thing rational right now. Being aggressive defensive avoiding the topic will not help, unless he has already and always made clear that he will not marry than its your fault to have agreed and gone too far with him, in this case you will have to take back step to avoid future emotional harm. Consult with me for counseling.

Hi, there are many ways to treat erectile dysfunction, from simple lifestyle changes to medication to herbal remedies. First of all continue exercising to cut your weight down. Avoid processed foods and foods made with refined sugars and flours. Replace high-calorie drinks with water or unsweetened tea.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are smoking for last 10 years. Initially, lung cells slowly starts destroying. Damage will be there. You can take a lung function test to ascertain the ill effects of lungs. Your lungs will start repairing itself immediately after you quit smoking. It could take almost one year to complete the process, provided you don't smoke in between again. The risk of cancer will also be lowered. Please quit smoking completely. I suggest deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Internal depressive thoughts may cause for sleeplessness. Better to express your internal frustrated thoughts to your family members and friends. When burden of thoughts may come then your mind relaxed. Be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always confident. Try to practise dynamic nature slowly it will come normal manner. Do not be sensitive. If you want you can change the total atmosphere. Be brave always. Feel always confidendent. Give positive suggestions to your mind. Better to take help of others in rush. Later slowly develop you alone cross the rush. Ok be confident do not feel depress. Ok best of luck.

You should again start taking your medicines. You should not stop taking medicines unless your doctor advices so. Your symptoms may require long term treatment so do not judge your condition acc to yourself. Follow doctor's advice only. Do not think you may have to take the medicines for whole life. Remaining healthy is more important.

Smoking - 7 Effects On Sexual Health

Smoking - 7 Effects On Sexual Health

Smoking in general, has a negative effect on the human body. It can cause a host of disorders such as mouth cancerblood pressure problems, and lung cancer. Smoking affects the sexual performance of both men and women.

Here are some effects that smoking has on sex :-
1. ImpotenceSmoking can damage the blood vessels that lead to erectile dysfunction (a condition where the penis cannot sustain an erection).
2. Decrease in libido: Smoking can cause various physical problems such as stamina reduction and lack of desire for sex. An individual who smokes won't be able to give an optimal sexual performance and this can further lower satisfaction levels.
3. Erectile dysfunction: Smoking can cause problems related to the circulation of the blood in the body. It can narrow the arteries that supply blood and this is directly linked with erectile dysfunction.
4. Tissue damage: Smoking can damage the tissues inside the penis thus impairing your ability to have an erection during sexual intercourse.
5. Early onset of menopause: It can affect the estrogen (a sex hormone) levels in the female body; so, women who smoke tend to reach menopause early.
6. Reduction in penis size: It can reduce the penis size in men by damaging the blood vessels and the structure of the tissue around the penis. This is more common in younger men.
7. Reduction in stamina: Smoking can cause a reduction in the stamina, thus a person will not be able to perform well sexually. It can lead to fatigue and tiredness during sex.

Of course, there are a lot of therapies which can help you recover from the damage already happened because of smoking and prevent further damage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

There are many effective treatment options for depression. First of all, the diagnosis should be confirmed in consultation with a Psychiatrist, because "depression" is possibly used in different 'sense' by Psychiatrists and by lay persons. I am hopeful that your Psychiatrist will be able to help relieve you.

Hi, what type of anxiety you have. Is it generalised or specific to something. Thought stopping techniques really works for that. Deep breathing also works. Check in which place the anxiety comes, be in that situation for more repeated time. The anxiety reduces. Regards

This looks like depression if it has persisted for sometime. The easiest way out is use of antidepressant medicines under the supervision of an expert psychiatrist. If you do not want to take medicines, counseling in the form of cognitive behavior therapy will be of help. The first aid measures that you can take include more time for hobbies, more interaction with friends, eating green leafy vegetables and chocolate, 7-8 hours of aleep and plenty of water. Take care!

Hello sir, I want to ask that sir my mom has a habit of cleaning things too much and she use to wash her hands too much these actions of her are symptoms of ocd and you prefer any treatment Please. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This can be a crippling disease, if not treated soon. She will need to meet with a counselor and psychiatrist and work with both medication and therapy for any reasonable success. She needs to work with a counselor for some behavior modification program to expose her to the situations that cause obsessions and compulsions to gradually de-condition her. OCD is not a lifelong disorder and will over time reduce in intensity. Therapy hastens this process and together with the medication she can work through it better. It is related to fear and so emotional therapy will go a long way to alleviate symptoms and the underlying causes. She needs to stay committed and remain cooperative right through the treatment. To reduce the frequency of repeated behavior patterns (compulsions) she needs to get rid of the obsessions (repeating thought patterns that are non-productive). She needs to maintain a log of regular activities and keep ticking it off of a log book and refer to the log to verify whether she has done a particular job or not. Over a period of time she can test herself to see if she remembers that she has done a particular task without listing it in the log book. Over time she can make two tasks, and so on. She will be very frustrated about her obsessions and may become irritable over small matters. So be patient and help her in this task fulfillment, and she will do fine soon. The bottom line is that there is fear and she needs to deal with that fear for all things to return to normal. This fear then shows up in the fear of infection and hygiene.

This is absolutely normal: at your age and cute girl at that, surely you will have a crush and highly driven libido. However you cannot walk around with a high libido and somewhat lost control. Indulging in it is what can cause bother. You must go out and socialize and meet more people and mix around with both sexes. In time you will be able to understand and respect girls and not see them as mere sex objects. You will also respect your sexual feeling and know that it has to be used responsibly. Right now vigorous games and sports will channelize a lot of this energy and reduce the urge. Your focus must be on your studies but not at the neglect of other aspects of our personality. If you like you could attend sex education classes and get a more refined idea of relationships with the opposite sex and relish a wholesome contact with them. Your view right now seems too telescopically directed towards their bodies due to the hormonal influences. There is so much more to do with your life at this current moment that this will distract you no end: time and opportunity can be permanently lost. You can have great times later on after achieving good development in your all round personality. Stay focused on the right priorities.

Hi anxiety is a feeling we all get in a situation that is threatening or difficult. Some level of anxiety is important for our survival and to keep ourselves ready to face the upcoming situation and continue to work for it. The anxiety stops when you get used to the situation, when the situation changes, or if you just leave. Prolonged anxiety becomes a problem and it interferes with your performances and stops you to do things that you want to do. Consider coming for inperson or online counselling sessions which shall be very helpful for you to learn better coping skills in various situations, so that next time you face it you are better equipped to handle it.
