I got married in 2004, after delivery in 2005, I was couldn't be normal again physically and was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. In 2007, on being very anxious in the night before sleep sometimes I used to have a little sneezing like jerk (Myclonic jerk) once in couple of months, after a couple of jerks they used to subside on their own. Then due to family conflict and stress, like my husband unemployment and son health, I was the the only one taking care of husband health (severe weight loss and depression) and working to support family financially. In late of 2011 I started having mood swing, quarrels and started treatment for depression. And since summer of 2014 had stated hallucinations and later it leading to couples high phases every year. A.lot of doctor were consulted, each one was tried for at least 6 months, but high phases kept on repeating. Finally got a final stamp of Bipolar and Lithium was also tried since may 2016 for more than 6 month, but again 2 high phase returned, so no respite. So in 2015, I used all my leaves, in 2016, I took break from work so was on long term leaves, and I have to join office soon, so so not know what to do? I get up around 11/12 clock in noon, without headache, dizziness etc and unable to standup properly, so can't work anymore.

All your physical problems are seems to be due to your family disturbance: husband's health, unemployment and son's health etc. First you look after your husband. Get him well. Motivate him to get some job. You restore yourself in your job. Keeping yourself occupied will help you to forget about your sorrows of life. Let's see how it helps you to get you out of this mess up situation. All your physical problems are psychosomatic. Don't worry. Face this situation with strong will. Focus on the root cause of the problem.

I m smoking for 10 years I want to quit smoking is there any way I can regain the ling capacity again.

MBBS

It’s not too late to reverse the effects of smoking. An overwhelming amount of damage to your health can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke. Not only that but you’ll experience immediate health benefits from being a nonsmoker – as quickly as 20 minutes after you quit. What Happens When You Quit Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few hours, the level of carbon monoxide, which reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, begins to decline. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. The workload on the heart is decreased and cardiac function is improved. Food tastes better, and your sense of smell returns to normal. Everyday activities no longer leave you out of breath. Within several months of quitting, you experience significant improvements in lung function. In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved. In five years, many kinds of cancer, including lung, larynx, mouth, stomach, cervix, bladder, show decline in risk, and that decline approaches the risk of someone who has never smoked. Within 10 to 15 years, risk of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema, are decreased. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, thyroid conditions, hearing loss, dementia, and osteoporosis are positively affected. Nerve endings in the mouth and nose begin to regenerate, improving taste and smell. Medications may work better, enabling some to be taken in decreased doses. If you’re taking birth control pills, quitting smoking will decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke due to clotting. You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility. If you’re pregnant, you’ll protect your unborn child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and low birth weight. Years will be added to your life: people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness.

Dear lybrate-user, The shaking can also be due to basic nervousness. But the major concern i.e. The frequency of his masturbation can lead to grave problems like Erectile Dysfunction or Premature Ejaculation in future. If you test results are fine, please consult the doctor for any general weakness.

Someone I knew was suicidal and his doctor had prescribed me Pexep 12.5 mg. I looked up this medicine, it had side effects and one of them was suicidal thoughts. My question is, when she (the doctor) knew that her patient was struggling with this, why did she give her a medicine that threatens the very thing she is trying to conquer? She was suffering from OCD and some signs of BPD as well.

We know that traveling my motor vehicle may cause accidents, and we witness such things everyday around us. Do we avoid motor vehicles? We can't. Because we also know that not everyone using motors will meet with accidents. Likewise, the effects of a particular medicine doesn't happen for everyone who takes it. It is only a negligible no. of persons out of thousands who are used as research participants. Nothing to worry about it. The Doctor knows well.

Internet Addiction - Signs That Indicate It!

Internet Addiction - Signs That Indicate It!

Internet addiction is a very recent phenomenon, but is already a cause for concern. With the advent of various social networking websites, people are increasingly becoming addicted to the internet. Internet addiction disorder is often characterized by people inching to form an emotional attachment with people and activities, all of them online. You may enjoy connecting to people more over the virtual interface instead of the real world; this usually stems from an inability to establish real human contact.

The symptoms of internet addiction disorder are:
1. Excessive usage of the internet
2. Depression, mood swings and irritability if one doesn’t get access to the internet
3. Any effort to reduce internet usage is usually unsuccessful
4. You may experience constant problems in personal relationships, education and your job due to incessant internet usage
5. A tendency of lying to close ones when they ask you how much time you spend over the internet
6. Using internet to escape from real world problems

Further complications
Internet addiction can gradually isolate you. You may develop an aversion to meeting and communicating with people in real life. This can impair your social skills and make you socially awkward. This disorder also create problems in relationships as it can reduce the time you spend interacting personally.

Internet addiction may also lead you to create online personas to evade low self-esteem issues. This actually aggravates the problem instead of solving it; can result in severe anxiety and depression. Withdrawal symptoms might result in anxiety, depression, irritation and loneliness. This disorder can lead to complications such as dry eyes, headaches, change in sleep patterns and subsequent problems in falling asleep. Back pain from sitting upright while you are on the internet is also very common problem.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear , depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. The medicines you are having now are good and you should try to get the other treatment methods. Once you start with those methods, it will be easy for you to manage your depression and slowly you could reduce the medicine doses and stop them altogether. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Because anxiety and depression have same serotonin pathways as the cause. Though classified as antidepressants, for anxiety, these are the medications of choice. They can be safely taken on a longer run. Pure anxiety reducing benzodiazepine group of drugs like anxit, restyl, are very harmful on a longer run, in fact the name it self on these by drug companies are misleading. Psychiatrists and neurologists, dont prescribe them on a longer run, but for short term use only. SSRI group can be safely taken for long term

Dear lybrate-user, it is good to hear that you want to stop alcohol, alcohol can damage liver, liver is one of the main organ in our body it produces enzymes from food which we eat, do not stop at once try to reduce quantity first and then frequency (if you are drinking daily make it weekly twice for 1 or 2 months then stop slowly).
