Chest pain can be a symptom of anxiety itself. You need to tell your age and other risk of heart disease like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. If you are above 40 years age then you should get a ECG done to rule out angina I.e. Heart disease.

I think that you have become addicted to her. This is not good for any relationship not for your mental wellbeing. Am I to assume that the depression is a result of the poor relationship or is it due to some other factors? If this is a one-sided relationship that too is not healthy and can never materialize. Ideally you should get out of this relationship and I see many of your problems resolved to your advantage. Meet a counselor soon and get that person’s guidance to get out of this relationship soon. For the depression please do the following: 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 scotching 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: find someone else to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

From my side. I will suggest you to do yoga and meditation daily. It will help you to feel relief for some stressful situations and energize you. And if that also does not work. Then consult a good skilled homoeopath for it. Because mentally disturbed patients are best treated with homoeopathic medications.

I am facing Memory issues where A small distraction making me to lose the thing which am doing, somebody ask me to do something even I have something things to do but when times goes am forgetting it. As a remedy I started noting the points that I have to do in a dairy but I forget to look that dairy. And the weird part is I am feeling sleepy when ever I wore an helmet, I am getting perfect sleep that I monitored it using fitness band, am getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day still why am feeling sleepy? I am not under any stress then what might be the reason for such?

You are under stress but you are not aware of it. In fact the reason you are so sleepy could be due to depression! You must get into some vigorous exercise program everyday and a few other things I recommend here. Stress can foil memory and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. In the meantime do some of the following: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Dreams are a window into our minds.Its common to have bad dreams during depression due to excessive negative thoughts coming into the mind throughout the day.Such stress needs to be released during sleep hence excessive dreams in some pts.Pls remember that Sleep has a very important role in maintaing our physical and mental health.U must consult a psychiatrist to get urself evaluated properly and take the treatment as advised which is usually a combination of meds and counselling.

Marriage is an important part of life, but it is not the only thing in life. Set some goals for yourself and focus on how to achieve them. Do some courses that will strengthen your résumé and give you better job prospects. Channel your energy into building the best version of yourself. When the time is right, you will settle down. It is a matter of choice; what others tell or ask you does have importance.

Of late I have been feeling depressed a lot. I went to see psychiatrist. He advised me to get serum lithium test done. Result says lithium level is below 0.21. I want to know if it signifies that I have some mood swing problem, depression, BPD or it is just to administer my prescription. Also I have heard about side effects of antidepressant so I am bit afraid of taking them. Please advice.

Antidepressants do not have side effects which cannot be managed. Depression has worse effects on health and general well being of a person than side effects of medications if any. Lithium tests are advised usually if you already are taking any medications for your problem. It is a mood stabilizer and used for resistant relapsing depressions or bipolar disorders. Consult online for any queries and assistance.

You may be going through a late onset of the growth hormone. Even so you can continue some stretching and light weight training to guide the growth to desirable directions. If this is the case the body will grow faster than usual. This spurt in growth will take away all the energy and make you feel exhausted. If not you may not be interested in your study course for various reasons in which case I recommend that you do an aptitude course and seek career guidance and opt for a course that is close to your heart and natural talents. Also at your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably.

The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain.

For the pain in your legs do visit a doctor to determine its cause and follow up. If you have not been exercising, it will help to get started. Besides, the growth hormone may have begun its agenda and that could have an impact on your body and cause some discomfort too. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems.

There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. I went through the details. The symptoms you are mentioning here are due to social anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder. You don't have to control your mind. In the meantime you should tryto diverse your mind from the present worry. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with the help of psychotherapy, counseling and life style changes. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

Know it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. We've talked about your thinking and now we're going to talk about its results: if you think negatively, your results will be negative, too. If you walk into a party thinking no one will like you and you won't have fun, you'll spend the entire party on the wall, making zero connections and not having fun. With positive thinking, positive things can happen. There's no other way around it. The opposite is true too! if you think things go well, they often do. Whether or not they're going better in your head or in reality is another question, but the reality in your head is the only one that matters. Try it out! take control of your negative thoughts. With all the talking we've done about negativity, you can probably recognize which ones are negative and which ones aren't. But if you can't, take any thought you have about yourself or other people. If it's a fact, reword it. If it's assuming anything, reword it. And if it's discouraging, reword it. So" no one at work understands me" becomes" I haven't made a connection at work with anyone. Yet" you'll have to be mindful and aware, but it's doable. Easier said than done. Totally. It's one of the toughest habits to break. Knowing that, start in small chunks. Just ten minutes a day where if a negative thought comes up, you stop it in its tracks. Then work your way up until you spend all day monitoring yourself and taking control. Your entire demeanor can and will change. Consider your personality. Loneliness for an extrovert and loneliness for an introvert are two very different things. Explain your loneliness to someone different from you and they may not even be able to fake that they understand. So consider your personality -- what would content you? an introvert may just want one or two people to form a genuine relationship with and they may not need that much attention from them. They may be looking for a personal sense of fulfillment and not need that from anyone else. An extrovert may need to be around a team of people to feel like their social meter is getting adequately filled. The right people, of course! where do you fall on the spectrum? avoid negative situations. It's a bad idea to drink heavily, do drugs, or spend your life in front of the television. It's a doubly bad idea to do so if you're in a bad mood or feeling particularly lonely. So avoid situations that just exacerbate the problem. You may feel better temporarily, but you'll feel worse over the long-run.
