Dear lybrate-user. Please understand there are no short cuts to cure the performance anxiety on bed. This happens because of over expectation. But the more you try to cure it, the more it worsens. That is the basic problem of any performance anxiety. So keep this in mind. Approach it coolly. If not today, tomorrow it will be ok. If you want an" immediate cure" it worsens. Take care.

Please see a marriage counselor or psychologist. Perhaps she just needs you to understand. Many times you can't live together and you also can't live apart. Perhaps she needs her personal space. Communication is the only way. Keep all channels of communication open. Try to talk to her and understand her deepest desires.

Anxiety and stomach flatulence ,hard breathing most of the times,alcohol and smoking in evenings .

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
It looks like you might be suffering from anxiety disorder that would explain the stomach problems ( ibs) and difficulty in breathing. May be that is why you need alcohol to calm your self. However you need to describe your shortness of breath in detail, as it could suggest some serious heart condition because of your drinking habit.

My daughter has started faking injury for example she started to limp but when nobody is watching she walks normally. When I confronted her regarding this she started crying and said she was not faking it.

Hi lybrate-user, This is common in children. It is NOT right call it faking. Children often unconsciously resort to such measures when faced with stress. This very well known. Confrontation will only worsen her condition by making her feel even more stressed. The situation needs to be handled expertly and with care. I recommend that you consult an expert on this to identify the stressors and resolve the situation in a healthy way. Take care!

I have had a depression after loosing my uncle and aunt at the same year. I.E 2006. Is there a way to feel better?
It is completely understandable that you had a big trauma losing both your family members in the same year, i. E. 10 years back 2006 but if you continue to feel depressed then you need help with medicines along with counselling. So consult a psychiatrsist for medications and therapy. Also you may follow general suggestions - do not stay alone - spend time with family and friends and people whom feel comfortable with. - do not keep your feelings to yourself talk them out - eat healthy, avoid smoking and alcohol, have a good sleep at night - exercise daily, do deep breathing exercises, yoga/ meditation for relaxation consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Dear Lybrate user. From the given information it seems that your daughter is having introversion as a personality. Borderline personality Disorder could be another issue. The adolescent sex hormone imbalance also can cause many behavioral problems. I suggest online counseling and therapy for her. Take care.

I am a student. Recently my memory is decreasing and I can not memories much lesson. Would yoga help me?

Psychologist, Palakkad
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. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

unmarried sex leads to sex. fear, urgency, tension, anxious may cause for depression. real life sex there is no depression. enjoy the sex without tension, foreplay plays very important role. direct sex may cause for tension. create peaceful environment. before sex mutual sharing of thoughts is important. sex means not one man work. both should participate with enjoyment.let you follow both of them. best of luck.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. 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.

I can understand that it is a very young age to be suffering from hypertension. Have you been investigated adequately as to why you are suffering from somany problems at the same time. If yes then you need to understand that illness are something which happen to us and then we need to find a way to keep them under control and keep going on with our lives. You need to see a psychologist or a psychiatrist asap.

It's good that you are not having symptoms of ocd currently, pramipexole is good for rls, but sometimes it also happens with deficiency of iron and folic acid, so you can take bcomplex along with iron capsules and pramipexole.

I am 23 year old male. My blood pressure stays at (130-135/80-85) normally. Whenever I eat burgers or fast food, or something oily or even a slight over eat of home food, I sweat a lot. I also get a little pain under my armpit and left side of my heart, which sometimes radiates to my arms. This pain improves by time as I settle down. Also I often suffer from claustrophobia while travelling in metros or lifts. Also 6 months prior I got my cholesterol check up with LDL= 152.1 and TSH=5.9. I am 85 kgs and a student with no exercise on my hands. Is my problem by anyhow related to heart or is it just anxiety? Please suggest remedies, as I am a little worried now. This thing has taken a toll on me from the past 6-7 months.

Your bp is on higher side, on borderline 135/85,(it is safe to have 120/80) your bad cholesterol is high at 152 (ldl should be lower than 80) your thyroid is working low tsh is high on borderline at 5.9.& you are overweight 85 kgs, a 23 years old student who got tested but got no benefits of awareness generated in schools about harms of junk food which is bad for health, so is oily food. Do you smoke also? everything can be controlled through diet and lifestyle modifications minus medicines. 1) stay away from pollution. 2) reduce salt & sugar to bare minimum, no need to eat a bland diet but avoid added salts on salads, packed foods where salt is used as a preservative. 3) take more potassium like oranges, lemons, amlas etc. Drink a glass of warm water with a spoon of honey added to it plus juice of a lemon, empty stomach, every morning. It does bring down bad cholesterol & sugar, besides helping to lose weight. 4) reduce weight minus diet charts or any specific exercise in gymn (the choice is yours) eat lots of seasonal vegetables & fruits as snacks, as food to counter hunger pangs but do eat a full meal of daal, chawal, roti once a day, preferably at end of day. 5) do not reduce proteins like dilutes toned milk, curd, chhach or boiled eggs if you eat. These are filling plus nourishing. 6) take a katori of assorted nuts everyday to get good cholesterol & to get proteins & good fats which help bring down bad fats. 7) walking is a simple exercise which is meditating also. 8) target to lose weight should be @ 5 kg only 9) by reducing weight by diet & exercise bp comes down, low thyroid start functioning normally & general health improves. 10) even students can find time to exercise if they want to, drastic dieting or gymnasium may not suit everyone but you have to make alternate arrangements within your resources. 11) get tested for total lipids, thyroid profile, bp & weight after a month & share with us. 12) you can get basic heart tests done also like, blood sugar, ecg, halter. 13) no smoking or exposure to pollution as low levels of oxygen in air does trigger heart attacks / stroke.

Whenever I think about the past I feel very angry and frustrated. And whenever I carry my positive thoughts I feel very excited and energetic... But it last only for few hours ... Then I start think about something else which gives me the negative thoughts and will become very angry

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you indulge in the past, you will definitely get angry because there will always be things that could have been done differently and that could have produced better results. So there will be regrets. Now we cannot turn back the clock back nor change the past. So that exercise is impossible and futile. But you can learn from them to better improve the present and future. By locking yourself in the past, you become a prisoner of it. The only way to look is, forward. And it looks like you are doing well with that. Learn to stay with the positive and strengthen that position. Because it is still a weak state in you, it will be quite easy to revert back to history and feel the regrets. It is a conscious effort and regular practice that will eventually win this battle. Perhaps there are some things that need to be dealt with about your past. Talk to a counselor and deal with them to completely eradicate it from your mind. Remember it is not possible to remove the memory but it is possible to purge the past memories of its negative energy or force. Keep me posted of your success.

Dear, writers cramp usually is due to neurological problems or nerve problems. Prolonged' same method' writing may cause this. There are no medicines available to treat it. The best method is to find a new way to write. Alter the way she holds pen. Increase the height of hand' s position etc can give her relief. Take care.

I am having a lack of concentration on things such as books. I forget things. I think I am n depression. Actually I love someone I know she cannot be mine I often dream of getting married to her .I cannot concentrate on anything.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.
