I have fear of loosing things. I double check everything while leaving. I do not remember where I kept the things. I have become too doubtful of people around me. Its a nightmare when I have to leave the bank locker room, as I am never sure I have locked the locker door properly, I come again and again to recheck it, same thing happens when I leave the house for more than a day or I am the person who is locking the main door, I check again and again.

Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features of OCD. It is advisable to go to a psychiatrist for proper assessment and diagnosis. They will be able to assess you properly and treat accordingly. Without going to a psychiatrist it is not possible to confirm the diagnosis or start any treatment. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.

I am a 16 year old boy. I had severe anxiety for 3-4 months. Will it affect or cause any damage to my heart in future?

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. You seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. It is not a heart problem, but a mind problem. Anxiety and Panic occurs due to reduced serotonergic transmission in the mind. Since all organs have connections from the mind, when you have anxiety and panic there are changes in the BP/ and pulse rate. It is not a primary cardiac problem. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety and panic treated.

My husband is an alcoholic. Is there any treatment for this problem. He acts so different when he drinks. Make promise every day but at the end of the day he again drink.

Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instil fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

Dear , you must read the low intelligence level with ibs and depression. Intelligence is the sum total of many practical aspects. Intelligence is not a single aspect of knowledge. Please understand intelligence improves with knowledge, interaction, experience and general awareness. That is the only way to improve intelligence. Take care.

I am shattered mentally and emotionally. I was in a relationship where we both had trust issues. I got pregnant and in sonography report baby was bigger than expected dates. Doc said it is possible I tried to explain him so much that it is yours I am not a person who will sleep with anyone other than you but he did not care to support me. 2 days before abortion I tried to explain him said that we can consult other docs find out the reason why it is this. He said I was not giving him time and suffocating him. And I waz impatient and was not able to control myself. I got aborted he did come there. He did not paid anything my parents did. And till knw he is not believing and not talking to me. And its effecting me so much. Abortion then his behaviour. According to him, I did lie to him in relationship. Like talking to someone and not telling him. And he said if I can lie then I can lie for anything. But he is not understanding that this is a very big thing for me I can never ever do this. I can never do this to him because I love him. What should I do. I am very much traumatized by the situation.

Hello lybrate-user, First of all, I am extremely sorry for your loss and for the emotional trauma you are going through. It will take a while for you to come to terms with this. One, the fact that he doesn't trust you, and two his complete lack of support. Please understand that sometimes things happen for the best. Life is full of cross roads and sometimes we reach them so that we may find out the true nature of a person. Perhaps it was time you found out. Perhaps there will be someone more reliable in store for you. Take one day at a time. Go for counseling, it is very helpful. If you still feel extremely depressed, see a psychiatrist who will advise you. No one and nothing in this world is indispensable. Life goes on. Be strong. Your parents must be very worried. Show them you are capable of getting through this. Take care.

I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I am currently taking Clonil 100 mg at night and Serlift 250 mg in the morning. The medicines have caused severe loss of erection and libido. Sexual desire is there but there is no proper and sustained erection.

Dear Himayush, These drugs can cause erectile dysfunction. It is one of the side effects. You are only 21 yrs old. You may be single. Why don't you manage your OCD better with these drugs. Once drugs are stopped, your erection will be normal. It is reversible.

My mom is suffering from depression from last 10 months. I had dropped my mba and then resigned from my job after she had a cardiac arrest and at home now to take care of her. I will be restarting with my mba from 1st june. I feel sleeplessness and get worried daily usually in the night time. How do I know whether I am depressed or not? I really need help urgent. My mood is always bad in the night time. Due to some gastric problem I had consulted a doctor who helped me with an antacid medicine and anti depressant. He said the gastric problem is recurring because of your mental stress and anxiety. Please help what is wrong with me I am just not able to figure out.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. You are obviously having problems adjusting to the troubled circumstances in your family/ life. There are certain symptoms of depression that you are reporting, but it is not clear if you have a depressive disorder or what is known as an adjustment disorder. This is important because antidepressant medicines have no role in adjustment disorder whereas they may have a role in a depressive disorder. Therefore, it is important to have a proper evaluation by a psychiatrist. It is tempting to have a quick, short cut kind of a solution and is only human and natural. But in the interest of your career and long term perspective, an evaluation by a mental health professional is certainly warranted and advisable. Do not neglect food and drink. Practise some form of exercise for atleast 20-30 minutes 4-5 days a week. These will serve as first aid measures. Take care!
