hello dear,ITs common for you to have mild body pains after jogging or running esp. if you are not habituated to it or you have started jogging recently.Take your time time to make your body get setteld to it.Eat a balanced diet ,protein rich diet,lots of fiber and fresh juices may help.Have milk and boiled egg without yolk daily to make your muscles strong.Calcium deficiency or vitamin deficiency also lead to body pains.a healthy food plan will always work.Have a fresh veggies and soya beans.avoid junks.

Dear Lybrate user. Since you are diagnosed (as you mentioned) having anxiety and depression disorder at the age 13, you may have to take the tablets prescribed by your doc. For a long time in order to get good results. Every human being has to experience some kind of anxiety/depressive mood, but in your case they exist a little bit higher in degree, that's all. Problems of anxiety/depressive disorders are now-a-days no big deal if properly treated and followed by the patient. Of course the medicines you are taking are good ones, but my suggestion is it is better to have psychotherapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in particular) in order to get better results. Don't lose hope. A combination of psychiatric medicines + Psychotherapy (CBT) + your will power and patience = Best results. Request your psychiatrist to find a Psychotherapist in your nearest locality.

Hi, In need order to change your thinking by challenging your negative thoughts its important you discuss that thought with a psychologist and get solution. The intensity and frequency of the thought also matters as sometimes it can be much more than just a negative thought. In the mean time, practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. All the best.

Dear service user, thank you for writing to lybrate. I understand your concern. Depressed mood, decreased interest in pleasureable activities, sleep disturbance, appetite change, anxiety, negative thoughts, inappropriate guilt and worthlessness are symptoms of depression. For diagnosis of depression, doctor needs your clinical history and examination of your mental state. Stress is also a signifucant factor leading to acidity. Depression is curable. The antidepressant medications and counseling cognitive behaviour therapy are proven effective for this. Kindly consult psychiatrist for this. Wish you good health and rapid recovery. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, symptoms of depression are not willing to do anything, no interest on anything, not able to sleep, not mingle with people, feeling loneliness the best treatment is counselling many patients have cured and leading better life.

My mother has a hallucination problem she thinks that someone controlling her and commenting on her I think he has schizophrenia problem I have consult doctor he prescribe the oleanz 5 Mg tablet also she is shouting on us and always showing anger pls tell me how long her treatment will be continue and when her condition will be stable.

Hello, I can understand the problem you are facing. You have to understand what she is doing is because of the illness. She has no touch with the reality at present and once she will improve with medication everything will be fine. Oleanz can be increased gradually to minimum effective dosage required. If she fails to respond at adequate dose for at least 6-8 weeks duration taken with good compliance, a change in antipsychotic may be considered. Consult your psychiatrist or you can consult me for further help required. Best Wishes.

My problem is getting depressed how I can overcome from this nerves pain in head.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

My daughter has been married for 4 months but is unable to consummate her marriage as she says she just can' t get the feeling for her husband despite trying and now the marriage is on the brink of break down, kindly guide

Psychologist,
You all need to sit down together and talk about the reasons for getting get married to her husband. If she is not feeling sexually attracted to her husband, then it' s a loss for both of them as sex is an important need for all humans. If they are interested, then they can visit a sexologist and counsellor, who can help them understand how to consummate their marriage and if they are having any differences between each other then they can be sorted out with the help of a counsellor. Nowadays, however, some couples are ready to live together without consummating their marriage with each other. Yet they have sexual partners outside of their marriage. If your daughter and her husband are open to this solution then it can be worked out this way. They can also remain as friends or companions within the marriage without having sexual relationship with anyone at all. A marriage need not break over this issue.
