I am twenty two year boy. I am suffering from panic disorder since long and I can not find way to come out. Please help.

I am twenty two year boy. I am suffering from panic disorder since long and I can not find way to come out. Please help.
When you say since long, I presume it must be from late teens. That is when most disturbances reveal themselves. It may indicate that there may be some contributors from childhood. So it is better for you to visit a counselor with your parents and they can throw some light into your developmental years to help reach a diagnosis. The other thing is that you should now stop trying to work this out on your own because it will cause you quite a lot of discomfort and disturbance, and you will be wasting valuable time in the process. What you need to do is visit a counselor immediately and work out the emotional baggage that is bothering you to cause this anxiety, especially fear. Fear is the key for resolving the panic, successfully. These attacks can become more frequent and more forceful. There could be a lot of guilt that needs to be worked out. Panic attacks are curable but you need to comply, and with the complete cooperation that the treatment requires. Forewarned you should be forearmed. If the counselor thinks that you need medication, so be it. In the meantime get your body fit: it plays a very important role in order to harbor a fit mind. So exercise regularly, go for Yoga and meditation to train the brain, sleep well and eat healthily.

Lack of sleep keeps your brain wanting for relaxation. Also a stressed or burned out brain needs much relaxation in form of sleep to get rejuvenated for new learning. I would suggest you to have a relaxing sleep of at least 8-9 hours a day. It would certainly help in your studies too.

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

MD - General Medicine

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men


There are many factors such as physical and psychological factors in their wide rages that can cause erectile dysfunction in men. One of the causes is known to be smoking because smoking has the capability to destroy blood vessels and arteries not to open well enough to allow free flow of blood. The World Health Organization always warn that smokers are liable to die young because of many health risks they exposing themselves to. Among many such diseases include heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and pulmonary disease.

Do not let it cross your mind that Viagra will be of help. Recent findings had revealed that, for a rigid, stronger and quicker erection in men, smoking must be stopped.

This writes up tends to do justice to the correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction in men and as well shed light on many reasons why you need to quit smoking because smoking can damage blood vessels and impede regular blood flow that can cause erectile dysfunction.

Signs and Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are many signs and causes of erectile dysfunction in men. There is a great need to seek medical help for any of the signs that will later be listed here, most especially if it has been re-occurring.

This will enable your medical doctor to examine the fundamental cause and what are needed to be treated. Recent findings have shown that there is a strong correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction and males who completely quit smoking can have stronger, more rigid erections when compared to those who do not quit.

Signs of Erectile Dysfunction

Below are the signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction:

  • Dropped interest in sex
  • Difficulty in having rigid erection
  • Inability to sustain an erection while having sex
  • Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

As it was mentioned earlier, there are many causes of erectile dysfunction. Listed below are the major causes of ED:

How is Erection Possible?
Erection occurs when there is an increase in blood flow to the penis which is always stirred by sexual imaginations or physical touch with the penis. When stirred, the penis becomes relax and make way for increases blood flow via the penile arteries into the two chambers in the penis which is referred to as the corpora cavernosa.

As soon as the chambers become filled up, the penis becomes rigid. When the muscles contract and the accrued blood flow out via the penile veins, then erection become placid.

Consequent upon the above, erectile dysfunction happens when there is an issue at any stage of the process.

However, the chemicals present in cigarette have the capacity to destroy the blood vessels in men's penis and affect its rigidity. The chemicals not only have adverse effects on the penis but also injure the kidneys, lung, brain, heart and many tissues in the entire body.

Revelation from Researches

Studies have shown that men who smoke cause more harm to their sperm than those who do not smoke. Smokers' testes and accessory glands were observed to have inflammation which results in damaged sperm. This smoking habit negatively affects the health movement in the sperm that leads to increased DNA fragmentation in the sperm.

Erectile dysfunction is known to develop at any adult stage. But it tends to be common as men advance in age. Researchers have discovered that the fundamental problem of erectile dysfunction in younger men is most likely caused by inhalation from a cigarette.

People who smoke are at much higher risk of having erectile dysfunction compared to non-smokers. The level of damages done to your erectile function, your age and damage to other parts of the body can affect the level of erectile function reversibility when you quit smoking.

Impacts of Smoking on the Sexual Health

Active smoking and in some instances passive smoking can cause erectile dysfunction. Smoking has the capacity to destroy healthy muscles in the penis which in-turn affect erectile functioning. This also can lead to a lesser libido.

Cigarette smoking has an adverse effect on the sex life of both men and women and brings about infertility. Also, there is this problem of having a reduction in the size of the penis. Now, imagine the psychological effects it will have on someone who is used to having a larger size of a penis. There is the problem of infertility too.

Coping and Managing Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction has a demonstrative impact on the affected man and his partner. Men with this condition usually feel frustrated, sad, little or no confidence and furious let alone a partner who is being denied sexual pleasure. The good news is that erectile dysfunction or impotence can be treated.

Some of the steps in alleviating this issue include being honest, opening up to both your partner and the doctor. Communication is an essential tool in the analysis and management of the state of your health. There is a great need to always let your partner know how you are feeling for adequate support and assistance.

Also, note that you will require patience with self in your treatment and recovery process, having it in mind that individual response to treatment is relative.

Hi Doctor, I am a 26years old girl and I belong to an orthodox family. My marriage got fixed and we started talking each other and we are in love. On day my fiance told me he had an old relationship during his college time. I told it's ok no problem, later he mentioned they had physical relationship, after hearing this I am really worried, whether to stop this wedding or move forward please suggest.

You should not worry about this if it is his past and he is not in touch with her anymore. Physical relationships in past is common, though lot of people do not discuss about it.

I' am 25 year old male. I' m consuming lonazep tablets-0. 5 mg for depression for past two months. Now i' m feeling better and thus I have tappered the dosage to 0. 25 mg. Is it safer to consume this tablet for longer course like 3 months.

Lonazep is not a antidepressant. It can only control your anxiety temporarily like paracetamol for fever as long as your are taking the medicine you are better. You can get addicted to it. You need to be on antidepressant. Contact a psychiatrist
