I am 18 years old. I am unable to sleep. I only sleep about 4-5 hours a day what should I do. I am in stress for exam.

I am 18 years old. I am unable to sleep. I only sleep about 4-5 hours a day what should I do. I am in stress for exam.
Insomnia due to exam stress and anxiety is completely understandable. In fact unless you have a relaxing sleep, you cannot perform to the best of your abilities. A sleep of 7-10 hours is usually considered to be relaxing for the brain and if you are unable to get that due to stress and anxiety, you may start some medicines to relieve stress and get a relaxing sleep. I am surethat will not affect your studying abilities. Get back to me for a prescription with your detailed complaints.

I have cold from 3 days what I have to do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am 19, and I only pee around two to three times these days. My urine is quite smelly, color is orangish. If I hold it for some time (2-3 hours) I start feeling a numbness in my bladder (not having pressure to pee but I know I have to) and also feel pins and needles in my hands and legs.

Dear , it is summer and weather is quite hot one tends to lose a lot of fluids in form of perspiration and also through respiration which is called insensible loss. If you are not drinking enough then body does not have spare fluid to throw out in form of urine. Hence kidneys have to work hard to throw out waste products in minimum amount of water which results in very concentrated urine which turn initially yellow, dark yellow and almost orange in colour. This surely indicates that you are not drinking enough water hence urine is orangish and much less in quantity. This highly concentrated urine is very irritant to bladder so you feel you need to pass urine where there is not enough quantity to induce natural desire to pass urine. Rest of the symptoms are due to dehydration. So my only advice is to drink plenty of fluids along with some isotonic drinks to the extent that urine becomes watery in colour.

I have an early ejaculation problem and issue regarding penis size. How to solve these problems.
Hello Lybrate User, Early ejaculation or premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It can be due to any stress, depression, anxiety, medications, hormonal changes, habits of smoking and drinking can be the reason. You need homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy can provide significant relief to patients suffering from premature ejaculation problem. If you want to take homeopathic treatment you can consult me privately. Along with follow this health tips - Healthy lifestyle - a) Take healthy and balanced diet which contains Vitamins, minerals, proteins etc. b) Avoid smoking, it leads to formation of plaques in our arteries, which obstructs the proper blood flow to our sex organs. c) Do exercise daily for 45 minutes. d) Take enough sleep to relax your nervous system. e) Do pelvic floor exercises such as kagal exercise. Take care.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Alcohol and the Heart
Doctors have struggled for several years now over whether to tell their patients about the potential cardiac benefits of alcohol. Over 60 clinical studies have suggested that light to moderate alcohol consumption (the equivalent of one or two 1 � oz. drinks of alcohol per day) can increase HDL cholesterol levels (the ?good? cholesterol,) can reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction (heart attack), and may have other cardiovascular benefits.
However, excessive alcohol consumption reliably causes a number of severe and often fatal medical problems, not to mention the destructive social pathologies associated with alcoholism itself.
For all these reasons, a special advisory panel of the American Heart Association issued a formal statement urging doctors not to recommend alcohol to their non-drinking patients as a means of reducing the risk of heart disease. This makes perfect sense. If doctors were seen to be encouraging alcohol, that would not only be politically incorrect, but might also lead to a significant increase in alcohol-related medical and social problems. Still, the apparent cardiac benefits of alcohol creates something of a dilemma for doctors.
The Evidence in Favor of Alcohol
Numerous prospective studies now suggest that people who engage in light to moderate alcohol consumption have a substantially reduced risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) - by as much as 40 - 70% - compared to those who drink either no alcohol, or those who drink more heavily.
And in a large meta-analysis that included over 80 observational studies, those with light to moderate alcohol intake had a 25% reduction in death from cardiovascular causes.
People who engage in light alcohol consumption appear to have a significantly reduced risk of developing heart failure.
Light to moderate alcohol consumption may help to prevent type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. And in people who have diabetes, it may help to protect against CAD.
Up to two drinks per day may help to protect against stroke.
How Can Alcohol Protect the Heart?
Theories as to how light to moderate alcohol consumption can benefit cardiovascular health include the following:
Alcohol increases HDL cholesterol levels
Alcohol has antioxidant activity
Alcohol increases insulin sensitivity
Alcohol may help prevent abnormal blood clotting
Alcohol in low doses has anti-inflammatory properties
While it is widely believed that red wine may have special protective properties (largely stemming from the antioxidant properties of red grapes), in fact the overall data strongly suggests that it is the alcohol itself that is cardioprotective in small doses - regardless of the particular type of alcoholic beverage consumed.
The Evidence Against Alcohol
It is noteworthy that in all the studies assessing the effect of alcohol on the heart, women who consumed more than two drinks a day, and men who consumed more than three, had a substantial increase in overall cardiovascular mortality, including sudden death. Furthermore, several studies show that binge drinking (abstaining for several days, but drinking heavily on the days when alcohol is consumed) is associated with a substantially increased risk of CAD and of cardiovascular death.
In addition, drinking large amounts of alcohol is a well-recognized cause of cardiomyopathy and heart failure. People who have more than two drinks per day have a significantly increased risk of developing hypertension. And consuming more than two drinks per day appears to significantly increase the risk of stroke.
Both heavy drinking and binge drinking increase the risk of atrial fibrillation.
The Bottom Line
It appears quite evident that the relationship between alcohol and cardiac risk follows a "J-shaped" curve. Cardiac risk is lower when low to moderate alcohol is consumed than if either no alcohol is consumed, or if higher amounts of alcohol are consumed.
The problem for professional bodies and guideline-writers, obviously, is that many, many people find it difficult or impossible to limit their alcohol to one or two drinks per day. If guidelines actively promoted light alcohol consumption for the population, there is every reason to believe that the overall result would be a negative one, rather than a positive one. So, despite all the evidence regarding the cardiovascular benefits of light alcohol consumption, you should not hold your breath waiting for guidelines (or your doctor) to recommend such a thing.

I am 22 years old. I did some neck exercise which was on the internet and it resulted in leaving dark rings around my neck. This makes me look older. Please help.

MBBS
General Physician,
Neck exercise is good for neck but it has to be done properly very slowly no jerky movement at all. It better to do this under super vision of physiotherapist. You might have done it bit more. These exercises are done for stiff neck or spondilytis pt. Give some rest to the neck muscle to recoup then learn it from physiotherapist. Then do it. It will be alright.

It is not clear what you mean by" nerves weakness" you may first consult a psychiatrist after checking your blood sugar levels (fasting/post-prandial) are normal. I do not appreciate you have a primary neurological problem.
