I have an problem during sex because of getting smoke in every day of gudang garam. Can you please told me the solution from recover it. Too getting future life enjoyed.

General Physician,
YOu stop smoking. Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Practice yoga and meditation. You have to stop worrying about it, start concentration on your schedules and try repeat in your mind once at least. And recall frequently if you wish or follow a diary with plan for the day/ thing to do/ learn. Once you try this frequently you will remember better. Keep up up physical health and mental rest fully frequently. Practice mental relaxation and breathing exercises.

A medical doctor will perhaps answer your problem regarding meningitis. I am going to touch on an emotional angle to all the problems you have mentioned. Her headaches, depression and fever have a strong basis originating from unexpressed anger. I am also aware that these can be caused by meningitis too but as mentioned I am showing an emotional perspective to it. It is therefore interesting that you do mention that she has a problem with getting easily angry and does get into depression, which is also anger related in my opinion. So apart from following the medical approach, do meet with a counselor and discuss her anger issues and where it has originated from. Perhaps there may be some information from her past either from her parents or from her own knowledge. It could be quite deep rooted and therapy must delve deeply too to get to the bottom of this residual anger until it is expressed, appropriately. The anger may be such that she may not feel like expressing it and therefore she has chosen to keep it under wraps. Any feeling that is suppressed will find a way of expressing itself internally and causing a lot of distress including headaches, fever, and depression. It may be useful to read a book by an author called Louise L. Hay, entitled, ?You can heal your life? to understand how emotions that have not been dealt with can disturb your life, and also how to go about healing the same.

Use of drugs and alcohol make a person aggressive and cause personality changes. It also causes serious health problems like liver and kidney failure, stomach ulcers and nutritional problems, etc. Your friend will need to be assessed by a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. Apart from helping him stop the drugs and alcohol, other problems like behavioral issues and aggression can also be treated. You can consult me for further management.

Depression adversely affects every aspect of our lives – including our relationships – and when one partner is depressed, the relationship may suffer badly. Depression can cause adverse effects on any activity that requires energy, spontaneity and good co-ordination – and that includes sex. And, sadly, lots of individuals who are depressed often appear to lose interest in sex. •In men, the general damping down of brain activity causes feelings of tiredness and hopelessness, which may be associated with loss of libido and erection problems. Some days will seem better than others. On your better days, try to make an effort to show love and appreciation to your partner. •Try to go for a walk every day, preferably with your partner. Walking not only gets you out in the fresh air, but, like other forms of exercise, it releases endorphins in the brain. These are 'happy' chemicals that rapidly elevate your mood. And there's considerable evidence to suggest that exercise can be as good for combating depression as any antidepressant. •Even during your saddest periods, try to spot happy moments like a bird singing or a new flower blooming in your garden. Try to train yourself to notice three of these heart-warming moments per day. •You may have an odd relationship with food while you're depressed (you could have little appetite or constantly comfort eat), but try to eat five pieces of fruit per day. This is a caring thing to do for yourself and is good for your physical and mental health. •Listen to music that matters to you. •Have faith that the depression will pass and that you will enjoy your life again. •Even if you don't feel like full-on sex, do make the effort to have a cuddle. If you are worried that cuddling will project you into full sex when you don't want it, just tell your partner that you're not feeling like having sex, but that you would really like to cuddle up. If you do this, you may both feel a lot better. Touch and closeness can keep a relationship. Regards,

I have a problem of early discharge, anxiety. what should id o ?
Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your stress, but do not worry few lifestyle changes and exercises can help you overcome this problem. One of them is: kegel's exercise: find your pelvic floor muscles finding the pc muscle is easy. The next time you re urinating, stop or slow your pee mid-flow. The muscles used to stop urinating is your pc muscle. Dont actually tense legs, abdomen or butt cheek muscles, instead focus on lifting your entire pelvic floor upward. Most importantly, continue to breathe through the contraction of your pelvic floor. If you re able to stop or slow your urine in mid-stream, you have just successfully located and contracted your pelvic floor muscles! if you re having a hard time, its the same set of muscles you use to tighten your anus. Now you re ready to kegel. Contract your pelvic floor muscles when you re ready to do kegel exercises for men, the first thing you need to do is contract your pelvic floor muscles. Hold the kegel contraction hold that contraction for as long as you can. Most men cant hold a kegel at first for no more than a couple of seconds. Some may not be able to hold it at all. Thats ok, thats what penis exercises are for to make you stronger! make a note of how long you can hold the kegel. Release the kegel contraction and repeat release the squeeze and repeat, for ten repetitions. Gradually build up your kegels until you can hold them for 10 seconds each. C.

He use to stay with parents but from few days his father is complaining about him he is not going to office regularly and fights with his parents on small issues and keeps on drinking and blame his parents for his situation and asked them to leave. Because of his behaviour he lost his current job that's when I meet him. I thought as a friend I can help him but things are getting worse. He is only looking for a reason to drink and blame his family. He in fact blame his parents for he being single.

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Try to convince your friend to seek medical help. Get his liver function tests done; if they are deranged, that can be used as a motivation to seek psychiatric help. It is common to have anxiety, depression, etc in these patients. However this increases their risk of self harm and sucicide. Do not give him any medication as advertised on TV or newspapers, which claim to treat the patient of alcoholism without his knowledge. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. You may consult me if required.

Hyperhidrosis is tough to treat. It takes a multi-disciplinary team of specialists to treat it. A physician, an endocrinologist, a psychiatrist and probably a surgeon all may have a role to play. Some patients do benefit with use of anxiolytic medicines. It would be best to see a physician first and then take it from there.
