Based on the history the pains can be due to fever as acute onset febrile illnesses present like such prodromal signs prior to full onset of symptoms. Fever with chills needs evaluation with complete blood count, blood cultures, urinalysis and malaria workup. Meanwhile using analgesics like acetaminophen or ibuprofen will help with the symptoms. Decision of antibiotics or anti malarial should be based after labs. as for your taste is concerned ,fever causes loss of taste buds( bald tongue) try to add some ginger in warm water and drinks sips in between. this will improve the taste and don't use tongue cleaner.

I always get irritated and frustrated without any reason on others how can I overcome that.
Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Life is full of challenges. See what is the cause of your tension. Are you happy with your family life and what are you studying presently? what are your dreams? decide your goals and try to achieve it step by step. Understand your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. When life is difficult, we have minimum 2 choices - one is - keep complaining and keep failing, second is - take charge of your life and try to face the difficulties, and try to solve it. Make best possible efforts.

Sending you the symptoms. Read it and let me know how many are present. 1) depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day, as indicated by subjective report (e. G, feels sad or empty) or observation made by others (e. G, appears tearful). Note: in children and adolescents, can be irritable mood. (2) markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities most of the day, nearly every day (as indicated by subjective account or observation made by others). (3) significant weight loss when not dieting or weight gain (e. G, a change of more than 5 percent of body weight in a month) or decrease or increase in appetite nearly every day. Note: in children, consider failure to make expected weight gains. (4) insomnia or hypersomnia nearly every day. (5) psychomotor agitation or retardation nearly every day (observable by others, not merely subjective feelings of restlessness or being slowed down). (6) fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day. (7) feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt (which may be delusional) nearly every day (not merely self-reproach or guilt about being sick). (8) diminished ability to think or to concentrate or indecisiveness, nearly every day (by subjective account or as observed by others). (9) recurrent thoughts of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicide. If you want know more. Let me know it.

This marriage issue needs resolution immediately otherwise, you will continue to experience an anger-related depression. If this is let be as it is now, you can go into worse conditions and will have trouble coping later. You could take your husband to a marriage counselor and get some help. In the meantime kindly do some of the following: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I think you want to increase iron in your body - if yes, then take care of your diet. Take natural foods, avoid junk food. Have bananas, cheekos, beetroot, guava - these fruits have more iron content than pomegranates & apples. You can also have a few almonds and raisins everyday.

My Friend Is Addicted To Drug Called Dicyclomine + Paracetamol Is There Any Chances Of withdrawal?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If he is addicted, he will have withdrawal symptoms. The extent of reaction will depend on how long he has been using the substances and what dosages is he on. It is best for him to visit a doctor who will determine these for him. Even if he does not experience physical withdrawal, he can feel the psychological symptoms and that can be quite disturbing too. Ideally, he will need both counseling and medication or detoxification to quit this habit.

It is obvious that there is some lurking fear related basis for your discomfort i.e. you have an unresolved fear that has probably been provoked now for some reason. It is now so severe that you suspect, in a paranoid manner, that the bad will somehow turn back to harm you. This could happen if your defense mechanisms are strained for some reason or that you have not been keeping yourself fit in psychological and emotional ways that there is a vulnerability, and your mind is becoming suggestive. The ideal way to counter such imagined possibilities is to do a reality check: Is it even remotely possible and what is the evidence you have? If you have a confidante, you could crosscheck with that person to authenticate your belief. Mostly, you will find that your paranoid mind has been suggesting the possibility. There is also the likelihood of being guilty about something and that as a punishment for that crime you will suffer some retribution. You can also meet with a counselor and talk out these fears and get some realistic feedback and as well receive some training to stabilize your emotions and rejig your defenses. Regular vigorous aerobic physical exercise, good sleep, a stress-free lifestyle, some spiritual strengthening exercises, and proper sleep should take care of you rather well.

You must be under some stress and that will cause a problem for sleep. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT , then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

There are many ways to relieve stress; some are scientifically proven while others are not. I can give you some idea regarding the proven methods of stress reduction. You will have read this with patience and understanding. In the present day world, stress is ubiquitous. It is said that the only person who is free of stress is a dead person! we all experience stress to varying extents; some of us manage it well while others, not so well. Thus stress management is a skill of paramount importance for all of us to learn and implement. So how do we manage stress? numerous methods have been proposed by experts and laypersons alike. But what works and what does not? do many of the popular methods actually work? can many of these methods stand the test of scientific efficacy evaluation? below we shall discuss those techniques that have been scientifically proven to be effective in a number of research studies. It is important to understand that the following 5 techniques are to be used together as each of these complement one another. Some of these might work well for some while not so well for others and vice versa. Essentially, they include a three pronged approach: changing the situation, changing the way we see the situation and changing the way our body responds to the situation. Changing the way one views the situation self monitoring: we are human beings, the most evolved, most complex and most intellectually advanced organisms on the planet. Thus, the way we process external stimuli at an intellectual level plays an important role in whether or not stress is generated. But before we intervene, we need to understand how we think, how we process data and what our thoughts are. This is the goal of self monitoring. Without going into the technical details, self monitoring basically involves observing and recording what our thoughts are, how we view a situation especially when we feel stressed, sad or anxious but also when we are feeling happy and relieved. Although it appears like a mere assessment, it can sometimes be healing too. When one observes oneself closely, errors become apparent and many times changes occur spontaneously without actually having to intervene. Cognitive restructuring: once one's thoughts and thinking patterns are analyzed, it is time to intervene expertly. The human brain is constantly trying to simplify the vast amount of data that is being continually thrown at us. In the vast majority of the situations, such a simplification is accurate and adaptive, but sometimes they are erroneous. In persons that are easily stressed out, there is a high rate of such erroneous conclusions. Changing the situation time management: besides making changes to the way we see the situation, it is also important many a time to change the situation itself. Time management and problem solving are the key elements in this endeavor. The key to managing time is to make a commitment to follow what one has decided. These decisions should be recorded in writing in a diary. The decision should be detailed and made after giving a proper thought. For instance, preparing a time table is an important way of managing time. But there are certain important points to keep in mind while preparing a timetable. Very often, timetables reflect extremes of thinking; some timetables are over ambitious, while others are half-hearted while still others are lax. It is important to prepare a time table that is reasonable and make a commitment to follow it. Problem solving: this is the other method of making a decisive change to one's environment. So what are the steps of problem solving? first identify the exact problem. Second generate all possible solutions without bias, without regard to practicality and without regard to likelihood of succeeding (brainstorming). It is well known that the best solution very often is the one, that at the face of it, might have seemed unsuitable or ineffective. Once all possibilities have been explored, rate the solutions in terms of practicability, logistics and likelihood of succeeding. After a careful evaluation of the ratings, decide upon the solution and take action. Do not procrastinate! changing the way one's body reacts to a situation relaxation techniques: now that we have changed the world around us and the way we view the world, it is time to change the way our body reacts to stress. This is where relaxation techniques are useful. Stress results in a number of bodily changes such as palpitations, muscle tension, headaches, fidgeting and so on, that reinforces stress. Relaxation techniques such as progressive muscular relaxation, deep breathing, yoga, pranayam, relaxing music can be useful. Friends, whether a bridge is able to hold itself when a train passes through it depends on the strength of the bridge and the weight of the train. So too whether we are able to handle stress depends on the amount of stress that we are faced with and how strong we are. Our strength in turn is dependent on the skills that we possess. The techniques outlined above, target all aspects of this stress machinery for maximal benefit. What's more, these techniques have been evaluated in scientific studies and found to reduce a number of stress related disorders such as heart conditions. So it is time all of us practiced at least some of these techniques!

You have a problem with extreme fear and I suspect that it has its origins somewhere in childhood. You will need to meet a counselor and work on this fear and your emotions in general. It will definitely help for you to start vigorous aerobic exercise immediately. Exercise will make your heart grow larger and an enlarged heart will pump blood more efficiently and with fewer beats to reach all parts of your body. Any species with a slower heart beat live longer. Besides, everytime you are afraid to this extent, your body will release the stress hormone, cortisol, and make your body gear up for emergency many times unnecessarily. Please meet with a counselor and take charge of your emotions quickly. You are young and the chances of resolving this soon are good if you cooperate.

I am 45 years male. Taking alcohol since last 15 yrs. Now I feel it is effecting my health as I feel tired every time .pls help me to quit .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have been on the reactive mode but it does not matter. The decision to quit is very important and it seems to have come of your own accord. Please go for a complete medical check and then follow these guidelines even if there are no manifest problems as yet: You need to identify why you needed to drink, and go back to your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times or the times when the temptation is strongest. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination, these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will, however, take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.
