It may go away on its own but not at this age. Start taking Serta 50 mg and let us increase dose slowly. Meanwhile start showing a psychologist who can teach you relaxation techniques. Also advisable to start yoga or meditation. You will be benefited.

Study with a calm & relaxed mind. Try to enjoy your studies & stay positive. Do not take your studies as a stress. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •During these days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.

All above problems are mainly due to inadequate and irregular sleep. Such also observed in old age and in diabetic patients. You have not mentioned your age and complete history. In my view start simple yogasana for 20 minutes daily, do meditation at least for 10 minutes. Take simple diet with milk, dry fruits and seasonal fruits. Do scalp massage regularly with almond oil twice in a day. This will work effectively. Taking chemical medicine in long term is dangerous. Ayurveda herbal remedial measures are safe and effective.

Cupping can be very relaxing to the body and the mind. Cupping is usually performed in a very relaxing and calm atmosphere. The therapist is very gentle with what they do, and the strokes that they make with the cup are very similar to most massage therapies. Cupping therapies are very relaxing. It is often used to treat anxiety, chronic pain and insomnia. By relaxing the body, it can help relax the mind, triggering a positive hormonal response, which can greatly affects a person’s mood.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.

Dear , dreams are activities of unconscious mind and no need to worry about what you saw in dreams. According to dream analysis methodology, dangerous dreams are because of your state of mind. You fear something. Please explain every symptom you face. Take care.

My dad has a chronic addiction of alcohol and cigarette smoking. It is from about last 30 years. He smoke about 5 to 10 cigarettes a day and about 6-8 pegs of whisky/wine a day. And even exceed it ocassionaly. Me and my family have tried to counsel him but it's not working. I am now in a medical school and whole heartedly want to do something for this. He could not even make to skip a day from his addiction. Please suggest me. Could anti - smoking drugs work, without much of a side effects.

Hello lybrate-user, you need to take your father to a de-addiction center, where they admit him and he undergoes detoxification and medicines are given under supervision. Each patient reacts differently to such meds. So its better to have him admitted rather an opd treatment.

I am in a physical relationship with a man who is married & who I love. I too am married. The man I love says he is committed & loves his wife and can never ever think of leaving her ever. While he also has multiple sexual relationships with other women. I fail to understand if he loves his wife truly and is committed to her than why does he opts for sexual relationships, that too with multiple women. What is his psyche behind this? Isn't he betraying his wife? If there is betrayl than how can he claim to love his wife? He also told me that once you are inyour 40s and 50s you need a support to look after you, to care for you and if you get a good person, you shouldn't ever leave her. While I am very straight forward, I will divorce my husband as I don't love him. Please help.

While you raise some pertinent questions about this man?s professed commitment to his wife and that he is fooling around with other women, I fail to understand how it matters to you! He is that kind of a man: he wants his cake and eat it too; and he is successfully doing it. What is baffling is that you know that this is not appropriate; you know that he is betraying his wife; you know that he is sleeping around with so many women, yet you yourself are bedding with him and have no qualms about letting down another woman i.e. his wife! You are also encouraging this man in his infidelity and making him feel that it is okay to sleep around. Even if you do not love your husband, you are in an unacceptable relationship for various reasons and I do not know what justifications you can cook up to make your aiding and abetting with this man?s unacceptable liaisons, look acceptable! It is almost like the frying pan calling the kettle black! You be the judge of your behavior and let him be answerable for his actions. Analyzing his actions, while encouraging them yourself is not in the right league at all. Just for your understanding anyway, men will justify and make something that is grossly illegitimate look very legitimate when they themselves are indulging in it. The explanation he gave you when being in your 40s and 50s is a whole lot of crap, but you seemed to have accepted it without question!

You must examine yourself with the doctor for the possibility of depression. Stress is definitely a factor but is it to do with depression? You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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.

Hi lybrate-user, There are no major impacts on your health. You may feel anxious or develop cold/flu Less sex may reduce your exposure to germs. Unfortunately, you’ll also skip the immune-boosting benefits of a weekly roll in the hay. Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction as men who do it once a week or more, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine, though it may or may not happen. Apart for all this, there can be insecurities in relation. There is more of psychological rather than physical impact. Consult a psychologist for therapy and counseling. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

Am a smoking person. Past 10 years smoking regularly. Now I want to go to stop the habit. Advice me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I like the sound of your resolution. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hi Sonali, at your age there should not be any memory problems per se. I think you need more focussed attention to give in your study, revise the matter in timely manner, recollect the fact as much as u can. I hope you can remember more. If not then please check your Thyroid status and routine blood. You can consult a neuropsychiatrist if you want.

Relationships will come and go many times in one’s life. You cannot take it too seriously unless you were thinking of marrying this girl. In fact, this is a common problem with a lot of guys, where you look at the first relationship that comes along as serious enough for matrimony. These are important associations to learn how the opposite sex functions and what happens to you around them, and to make the necessary corrections to become a suitable partner. You have put in a lot into this relationship and it has not worked. Leave it but please learn something from the experience. Besides, you don’t want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. Quickly get rid of all reminders of this girl, and do not visit the old haunts that you and this girl used to frequent. For some time avoid people, places, and situations that you two enjoyed. In the meantime, please talk extensively to a confidante or counselor about your feelings and thoughts to externalize it out of your system. Do not bad mouth the girl for any reason but go about your life as quickly and normally as possible. Don’t get into another relationship until you have dealt with this loss completely. Keep these three values in mind: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, always.

Thiss is not an age for Memory loss.Actually it is not loss of memory ,but we take things for granted.Just ask yourself,Do you ever forget to take or give money to a person whom you have lent money or from whom you have taken money.Actually we are so much occupied with our daily work that our mind ignore less important things and we ourselves term it as Memory loss.It i just stress due to over load of work and nothing else.We all have pushed ourselves into lot of stress trying to do many thing in one time and here start the problems.We start feeling irritated and due to thiss irritation and frus stration of not giving 100% in work,we start skipping important things from our mind thus making the things even more worse.Certain homoeopathic medicines and an exercise will help you for your problem but I again say that just try to be focused and complete thingss in a most peacefully manner and environment and homoeopathic medicine will help you in this direction.
