What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders.

I am student, so what type of food you suggest me to me to get good memory power.

Psychologist, Palakkad
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. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

I am aged 38. I have been married for 12 years. I lost interest in sex even since I came to know that my husband is a womanizer. But has been just offering myself physically due to fear of breaking marriage. I have two kids now. Somehow hate when he tries to have sex with me. He has no feelings towards me but just want to try out mechanically as if I am an object. How do I get rid of this. He never understands. Feel like divorcing him. As there is no bonding but is forced to stay back due to financial burden as I have two kids (I also work and earn well). How to get rid of such difficult situations?Please help sir .

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user I can understand your turmoil and suffering. I will just suggest a few pointers 1: it is natural for you to feel the loathing towards a womanizer husband. You mentioned you submit to him just to keep the marriage. 2: think about this, normally two people marry and it is expected that they satisfy each other's sexual needs. As long as you feel you loathe him. Your sexual experience is only filled with your hatred for him and thus. A self loathing towards yourself! ask yourself do you hate your self for being and remaining in this situation? 3: if you decided to push aside his womanizing patterns, is he a good husband to you and good provider for his children and you? can you recall any romantic or feelings of love for him? 4: if the answer is negative, and as you said you are earning well yourself, the next question is" why are you opting out to stay with him and hurt yourself by hating him? because your hatred hurts only you and not him. He is enjoying his life assuming you are fine with it the way it is or you can not stop him. 5: so you have a choice to make. There is no medication, no miracle cures, or no god or or saints even black magic to cure him of his womanizing. Either you stay in this marriage and hurt your own self or you get out of it and find your own peace of mind. 6: children always adapt as they grow and some day when you look back they will understand and in fact protect you.

Memory, like muscular strength, requires you to “use it or lose it.” The more you work out your brain, the better you’ll be able to process and remember information. But not all activities are equal. The best brain exercises break your routine and challenge you to use and develop new brain pathways. Four key elements of a good brain-boosting activity 1. It teaches you something new. No matter how intellectually demanding the activity, if it’s something you’re already good at, it’s not a good brain exercise. The activity needs to be something that’s unfamiliar and out of your comfort zone. To strengthen the brain, you need to keep learning and developing new skills. 2. It’s challenging. The best brain-boosting activities demand your full and close attention. It’s not enough that you found the activity challenging at one point. It must still be something that requires mental effort. For example, learning to play a challenging new piece of music counts. Playing a difficult piece you’ve already memorized does not. 3. It’s a skill you can build on. Look for activities that allow you to start at an easy level and work your way up as your skills improve —always pushing the envelope so you continue to stretch your capabilities. When a previously difficult level starts to feel comfortable, that means it’s time to tackle the next level of performance. 4. It’s rewarding. Rewards support the brain’s learning process. The more interested and engaged you are in the activity, the more likely you’ll be to continue doing it and the greater the benefits you’ll experience. So choose activities that, while challenging, are still enjoyable and satisfying. Think of something new you’ve always wanted to try, like learning how to play the guitar, make pottery, juggle, play chess, speak French, dance the tango, or master your golf swing. Any of these activities can help you improve your memory, so long as they keep you challenged and engaged.

I am in love with a boy. We are together since 5 year. I informed my parents about this boy that I love this boy and I wanted to marry him. My parents are not happy with this relationship. I thing is they have received one letter in that someone unknown person has written he is not a good guy. Please keep your girl stay away from him. But in 5 year of relationship I didn't find out anything negative about him. He is too honest. One more thing I want to share is he has drunk 2/3 times and said bad words to me and shouted at me. I forgot it because I know its his love nothing else. The thing is I had a past. And I just move on and I share everything to him that I was in relationship. I didn't hide anything to him.because I truly love him and I want to spend my whole life with him. About 7 month before I appeared for an interview in my ex office where his office. I never mix my professional life and personal life. But I didn't inform my bf about this I thought he gets angry on me and wouldn't allow me for an interview and it is such a good company so I don't want to loss chance. I told him that I am going for an interview in this company and he always sees my ex updates so he find out that I am going in same company where he is working. I even informed this in my home that I am going for an interview where my ex is working because I have no bad feeling for him. But after thinking a lot although I am selected I said know because I don't want my relationship mess up. On that day in night he called me and ask what you r hiding with me? I said everything and he said bad words to me. Said that there is no difference between you and character less girl. Again I forgot and say sorry to him. Now thing is I forgot everything and I want to marry him. I am trying to convince my parents. because I know I am not with him that is why he is upset once I will with him he will not do such a thing. But after trying 3/4 times my parents are not happy and he is asking for court marriage which I don't want because I don't want to hurt my parents. I am trying to convince my parents but I am not able to convince them so he is not talking with me properly. I am too much in depression. I can't tell this to anyone. Please let me know what should I do. Please.

It s very simple, you are blinded by love to this emotionally unstable fellow. Your parents r right, and you should thank the guy who has informed your parents. If you marry this fellow, you might regret for life. Do not be blinded by love, and pray sanity prevails upon your mind. After marriage this fellow will be uncotrollable. Suspicoiusness and possesseivness by him is not love, but his low self esteem, paranoia and unstale emotions. You will not realize this now, be careful. All the best.

First, get yourself evaluated by your physician for any underlying medical condition. If none, seek help from a qualified and trained psychologist for counselling/psychotherapy and relaxation training. It will be great help. Alternatively, also you do pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results.

Dear lybrate-user if your experiencing anxiety and stress you need to handle it irrespective of why. Homoeopathy helps to balance hormones and anxiety. Practise diaphragmatic breathing. Feel free to call for a consult to handle hormones and depression anxiety.

I have smoking habit. I smoke 3 to 4 cigarettes daily. Will I get any problem if I run daily?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will only experience a problem while running because of your smoking as compared to a non-smoker. But exercise is welcome anytime and with any condition because it is the most holistic medicine. However, smoking is bad for everyone whether they exercise or not. If you smoke and exercise your stamina will not be that good. Over a period of time it can only get worse. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke will reduce the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and you will tend to get exhausted, easily. Besides, there are more than 4000 thousand chemical substances in tobacco smoke and most of them are harmful. My advice is to quit smoking immediately and your exercise will stand to benefit you tremendously.

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.

I am 27 years old. I have married my boyfriend. Its been a year since we got married. Before that we were in a relationship since 6 yrs. As soon as we got married we started fighting everyday. I have lost trust in him completely. He does not find me interesting or attractive anymore. He will not even spend any time with me. I need counseling in this.

Dear user. I can understand. Yes you need counseling on the present scenario. Not only you, your partner also need counseling. You know, family life is an adjustment. You both are different personalities, having different behavior pattern and different family culture, compelled to stay together inside a home sharing everything. Differences are common. It will take time to understand each other, I suggest online counseling for you and later with your husband. Take care.

Dear user, welcome to lybrate-user. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

1. A person diagnosed with ocd, psychosis and multiple personality disorder was secretly given fludac 40 (mg) and risperidone (0.5 mg) as prescribed by the doctor. Now this doctor is stating that his case is that of psychosis and asked us to continue these medicine for 2 more weeks, after which he should be admitted. Concern is if he is admitted for rehabilitation by force, consequences can be very negative (he can turn hostile) 2. Another doctor was consulted. He suggested against admitting. However, he suggested to immediately stop the above medicines and to start with haloperidol. However, concern is won't abrupt withdrawal of fludac and risperidone cause negative repercussions and withdrawal symptoms? please suggest what should be done?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hello, welcome to lybrate from the above details its clear that your patient was on fludac and risperidone. Now that you want to stop these medications and want to start haloperidol but are concerned about any harmful withdrawal effects of previous medication. As your patient was on 40 mg of fludac and risperidone 0.5mg. So these medications can be stopped immediately as well without any withdrawal effects or negative repercussions. If your patient have been diagnosed as having psychosis, than haloperidol is also an antipsychotic medication which will suppress the psychotic symptoms. Fludac have a longer half life, hence sudden withdrawal will not affect its blood levels to much, hence will not produce any withdrawal effects. For any other query you can also consult me in private
