Hi there, Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterized by uncomfortable leg sensations that can interfere with resting or falling asleep. Experts believe that low levels of iron in the brain may be responsible for RLS. An imbalance of dopamine is also believed to be involved. About 60% of people with restless legs have a family member with the condition, indicating a strong genetic component. Anyone can have restless legs syndrome, but it’s more common in older adults and women. Mild symptoms of RLS may start in early adulthood and then increase with age. After age 50, RLS symptoms often increase in severity and significantly disrupt sleep. Restless legs syndrome is also common during pregnancy (approximately 40% of pregnant women experience it). Restless legs syndrome: It's real Studies estimate that 1 out of 10 people suffer from restless legs, yet it’s not always easy to find help and support. Many people with RLS never get proper treatment. Part of the problem is that it’s hard to explain and often dismissed as being “nervous.” Those who haven’t experienced the distressing symptoms may not understand how severely they can impact the quality of your life. Even doctors may not take restless legs seriously, recognize the symptoms, or realize it’s a real medical condition. The good news is that recent research has increased our understanding of restless legs syndrome, leading to more effective treatments. At the same time, RLS is becoming more widely recognized. If you or your partner suffers from restless legs, there’s never been a better time to find relief. There’s a lot you can do to take care of restless legs syndrome yourself. In fact, mild RLS can often be treated with lifestyle changes alone. Avoiding known restless legs triggers is a smart first step. Manage stress. RLS symptoms get worse when you’re anxious and overwhelmed. Anything you can do to keep stress in check will help, including relaxation techniques such as meditation and deep breathing. Cut back or eliminate alcohol. Alcohol is known to worsen the symptoms of restless legs, so be cautious about drinking in the evening. Alcohol also disrupts sleep, so you’re more likely to wake up in the middle of the night and be bothered by RLS symptoms. Don’t overdo it. Strenuous exercise can exacerbate the symptoms of RLS, especially close to bedtime, so be smart about your exercise routine. It’s also wise to avoid sudden changes in your activity level. Stop smoking. Nicotine is a stimulant that impairs blood flow to muscles and can make restless legs worse, so it’s best to avoid cigarettes, vaporizers, and e-cigarettes. Experiment with caffeine. For some people with RLS, caffeine is a trigger. However recent research shows that it may actually be beneficial for others. Makes the symptoms of restless legs syndrome worse. To see which camp you fall into, try cutting out coffee, tea, and soft drinks and monitor your symptoms. A number of vitamin and mineral deficiencies are linked to restless legs syndrome (RLS). Iron. Iron deficiency (anemia) is a well-known cause of RLS, so ask your doctor to test you for anemia. However, supplementing with iron can also improve RLS symptoms in those who aren’t anemic. Magnesium. Magnesium can improve sleep and some studies have shown it to be beneficial for restless legs. Try experimenting with a magnesium supplement (250 to 500 mg) at bedtime to see if your symptoms improve. Vitamin D. Recent studies show that RLS symptoms are more frequent and more severe in people with vitamin D deficiency. Your doctor can easily test your vitamin D levels or you can simply make it point to get out more in the sun. Folate (folic acid). Folate deficiency has been linked to RLS, which may explain why restless legs are so common in pregnant women (folate plays a key role in healthy fetal development). When folic acid is low, B12 is often low as well, so you may want to try supplementing with a B-complex vitamin. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery. Sincerely,

I am in love with someone. He dont love me. Once we used to be best friend. Now we r not even in contact. I dnt feel good at all. I tried many ways to forget him but did not success. Every where and there I miss him like anything. I do not feel like to talk to any one or do anything. I continuously think of him only in every situation. What should I do now?

Dear lybrate-user. Be in the middle. I mean neither love nor hate/forget. Subdue your ego and take initiatives to contact him whenever you feel you are deprived of him. Continue your friendship but not in depth. Focus on other areas of your life. You will find yourself Ok in course of time.

Nicotine in tobacco has a stimulating effect on intestinal transit and helps bowel movements. Therefore on quitting smoking, constipation is one of the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Don't worry, this will resolve gradually in 1-2 months after quitting. Meanwhile, as it is unpleasant, I suggest you should have an adequate intake of fluids - at least 1½ liters per day, and eat fibre diet. If that is still not enough you may need to consider taking a laxative, preferably a fiber-based one. Remember, quitting smoking is the best thing you will ever do. Constipation is only a very small price to pay.

Sir, I am hearing Impaired using a hearing aid. I have an interview in the coming few days. I feel my hearing ability has come down a bit.

Hi lybrate-user. I don't think the issue with you has anything to do with the aid. U r conscious of the fact that you have an impairment .though adequately controlled for. Relax.Chill. The issue with you is anticipatory anxiety. Yes anxiety is just a normal response to a real or perceived threat.in your case the interview n the interviewer. Pls Google rcpsych anxiety panic n phobias key facts to knw more. When anxious .our ability to focus. Pay attention n concentrate goes down. To listen properly one needs to be attentive. This isn't the first time you r facing anxiety am pretty much sure. Remember all the exams .vivas. Social situations you have faced so far. They also brought in a bit of fear .didn't they. Am pretty much sure you succeeded then n will now. Remember. Work is thy duty (preparing adequately n performing at the interview to the best of your abilities. Reward is not thy concern (whether you clear or not). I hope this helps. Best of luck. Regards.

Hi Mr. Rao you are suffering from performance anxiety. First you need to develop your self worth and confidence. Interview is not something horrifying and last stop you need to have a casual approach towards me. Interview doesn't determine your life, you do. Focus on your positive achievements etc. Say positive affirmations to yourself. Practice in the mirror everytime you have to give interview in the night do mental rehearsal imagining yourself passing the interview with success and most importantly meditate or practice deep breathing exercise. All these involve detailed steps. You can consult me for same I can help you come over your worries. All the best.

Hi, Many people come across a dream that has some kind of perversion in it. Some even have actual sexual release through those dreams. Sexual dreams may be a means to compensate for what is lacking in real life. Dreams of sexual nature are common among people of all age groups and one should learn to deal with them rather than feel guilty. The theme of a dream does not matter. As far as the dream is not interfering with daily life and one is sleeping well, the content of the dream should not be given any importance. To conclude, interpretation of dreams is important to understand what they are telling you. Identifying the theme is the first step towards this. Correlating the theme to your life in general or a particular event of your life will help in understanding the dream better. Dreams should not be taken at face value—try to look at their symbolic meaning. To remember the dreams and to help interpret them better, it is advised to write down your dreams in a journal and then consult with a psychologist All the best.

Hello. If you have depressive symptoms, you must take proper treatment for it. Usually depression is easily treatable with medications and psychotherapy. Please remember the longer you ignore the treatment, the difficult it gets to treat depression. Now, very good medications are available which do not cause any habit formation or dependence. Also you may take counselling sessions which will further help. Find a good psychiatrist nearby.
