She is probably overwhelmed with suppressed emotions. Probably she has been very submissive in her early childhood and adulthood. May be, she could never express her feelings. Now she is not able to bear it any more. Hence she has" displaced" anger - means taking out anger on someone else. You need to check if she has any family history of mental disorders. Please try to talk to her. When she is in good mood ask her what is making her so angry, try to understand her feelings behind the anger. If she is willing, take her to a counsellor/psychologist, who will assess her and can suggest future course of action.

I am suffering from anxiety n insomnia before period comes. Tell me about some solutions to get out of it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Thrissur
Dear, You seem to have features of premenstrual dysphoria. Steps you could take: 1. Keep a mood chart so that you can predict the days you will be uncomfortable. 2. 20 min of aerobic exercise daily helps reduce symptoms. 3. Reduce intake of refined sugars, excess salt 2 weeks prior to your periods 4. Eat more complex carbohydrates in the week prior to your periods. 5. There is some evidence for taking calcium supplements and pyridoxine supplements in the week before your periods. 6. Try not to plan stressfull activities during this time. If you can. 7. Communicate your difficulties with loved ones so that they can be more supportive during this time. Hope this helps.

Dear user. I can understand. Everybody are sensitive to issues. The level of sensitivity depends on the issues and on the experience the person has on that issues. The more experienced you are on an aspect, the less sensitive you are. Therefore experience matters. Don't unnecessarily worry about all these. Take care.

This is due to all stress and worries. You will find another girl. You cant force her to continue with u. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

At your age a lot of strange things can happen. But these symptoms may be a sign that some childhood issues are surfacing seeking a solution. You must meet with a counselor and a doctor. You must combine with both therapies until this is completely resolved. Take your parents with you to explain your childhood.

Hi. My girlfriend is the from a higher caste and that's why her mother forbade her to talk with me. But we are in a relationship since 2014. A serious relationship in sense of honest amd earnest love (not to be misinterpreted with physicalities). Things changed from the time her mother became so strict about the matter. She even found an alternative for her in place of me, but she rejected the boy standing again her whole family. But as the situations lead to, she doesn't talk with me as before, marks my WhatsApp messages as seen, no reply, ignores me somewhat. I asked her out what's the matter a few days ago. She said that being the whole family and specially her mother against the relationship, whenever she texts me, or any kind of topic regarding me arises, her mother howls at her in such a disgrace, and even spitting odds and bad about me is also not restricted! Despite of all the unwelcoming circumstances, we're still in a relationship, but definitely not sire if our marriage will be possible or not. In fact the probability is leaning viciously to a big No. We both are concerned about it a lot. I'm in IIT Bombay, 1st year. But problem is I'm an SC. And that's why fear is growing upon us vein like railway tracks forever that runs parallel together but never meet! What should we do now?

General Physician,
As you have explained, she is in confusion to go ahead with you despite the family being so objectionable. All you can do is ask her if she can accept you against the whole world and see if you can handle it, If you are well settled in life to marry against the family. Or it is just forget he and decide between both of you.

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

Aside from the obvious problem with chronic pain - there are many other downsides to chronic pain that are important to know about. For those living with and enduring chronic pain, pass this along to your loved ones to help them understand and be supportive.

1. Pain is rarely 'all in your head'
People in pain are often treated as if their pain is actually made up or greatly exaggerated. While it is true that pain is subjective (people simply perceive pain differently) and some people may report pain because they have other agendas - for the vast majority, the pain is real and present. It is not made up. The problem is that chronic pain is often caused by types of anatomical problems that are difficult or impossible to diagnose using standard medical tests, and pain cannot be diagnosed like other medical problems (such as a broken bone that can be seen on an X-ray).

Fortunately, most in the medical community are now trying to understand and appreciate that chronic pain is real and needs to be treated and managed differently.

2. Pain is not the only problem - it breeds other health problems
Thoughts and emotions related to the pain also can come into play and aggravate or alleviate the pain. For example,depression, which is a serious disease, can worsen the pain. Sleep problems again caused by the pain, can also make the pain worse. And increased pain usually leads to increased sleep problems.

Often all conditions related to the pain need to be treated concurrently in order for the patient to get any relief.

3. Pain is deeply personal
Everyone experiences and expresses pain differently. Any two people with the exact same health condition are likely to feel and express their pain in unique ways depending on a number of factors. Newer chronic pain theories now have physiological explanations for how and why people experience pain differently.

When it comes to back pain, this is especially true. Two people can have the same type of herniated disc, but one feels only slight discomfort and the other feels intense, burning pain that is unresponsive to conventional treatment. It is also not uncommon that no anatomical cause of the pain can be detected.

Why is this point important? It means that chronic pain often needs to be treated as the primary problem, which is different than the conventional medical approach of identifying and treating the underlying problem causing the pain.

4. Chronic pain is its own beast
Unlike acute pain, which functions as a warning signal (e.g. I just stepped on a nail - better move my foot!), chronic pain does not have any useful function. It just is.

Often, chronic pain is caused by nerves that continue to send pain signals to the brain. When dealing with chronic pain, often one of the most frustrating things is that there is nothing to 'fix'. It just exists in your body.

5. Chronic pain is LONELY
After awhile, many people with chronic pain - especially pain that is caused by a condition that cannot be seen - begin to feel isolated. Here the Internet has done a world of good helping people in pain connect with others in similar situations and find a supportive peer group through online communities of people in similar situations.

Having a clearer understanding of how chronic pain works, as well as the central role that the mind plays in the experience of chronic pain, is becoming more mainstream in the medical community. Patients who start to gain more understanding of their own chronic pain may also benefit in terms of gaining increased emotional support, more effective and sustainable pain management, and even possibly harnessing the power of their minds to assist in coping with the pain.
