Give yourself some rest and wait and see if the symptoms eradicate. If not meet an ENT. Check for it and get treated if there s any throat issues. As you know in the condition of bulimia nervosa if you were into habits if compulsive vomiting there would have been too much stress to the throat area. You have mentioned you have been treated. By any chance, any time the habit resurfaces meet a psychiatrist and follow through. Take care.

If a child is behaving with so much anger outbursts we first question the parenting, whether all his needs from the beginning were met immediately before, and he is to throw temper tantrums to meet his needs. Any child learns patterns of behaviours from the known others, parents and environment. If the parenting and environment is fine you need to assess the child for IQ/ADHD or for other behavioural problems with a clinical psychologist.in this modern world with ao much of violent cartoons and movies if the child is exposed to many the child might mimic certain super heroes with his acquired knowledge and act to his needs of gratification. If the child falls under ADHD please provide him the needful pharmacotherapy treatment and behavioural therapy to change his behaviour. Take care.

Dr. How to judge a person if he/she is in depression? Doctor please suggest me something?
Depression has its own set of symptoms like anhedonia, anergia,decresaed sleep, appetite, lowered concentration and attention etc and at its peak of severity the person might have suicidal ideas. The symptom and severity vary with person to person. Having hopelessness and sadness alone won't put anyone to be depressed but they are part and parcel of the symptoms. Thyroid in medical condition put the person more into the condition of depression due to neurotransmitter imbalance. Please get the person treated by a psychiatrist as depression is actually adverse to a healthy and happy life. CBT and mindfulness from a clinical psychologist will also help as an adjunct, take care.

The answer for the first question is scientifically no. If you feel you have memory lossand decreased concentration that might not be because of your masturbatory practices. It might also be because of stress, working scenario, depression and very many psychological conditions. Even if you quit this practices you might not be get rid of the symptoms as the root cause is not treated. Meet a psychiatrist/ clinical psychologist and get treated.

Am a 25 years old female. Got married 1 year back. My husband never showed any interest in having sex with me. It was just 5 or 6 tyms that we had a foreplay and never proper sex. He never tried to show any type of intimacy with me. I felt like he is avoiding me most of the tyms. He used to take care of me well, helped me very much in studies, took me out for shopping, bought me things and all but sometimes he behaves so rude that he even spits on me or bite me hard. He says it is for fun but I was getting hurt. He used to tel me that he loves his friend (boy) most in this world and he can't love anyone else more than that. He was very short tempered and I was not even courageous enough to question him. We got divorced 4 months back. I still love him deep in my heart and I can't forget those good things he did for me. Now I am very depressed and I feel guilty for what I have done. I can't sort out right and wrong. Can not concentrate in anything and crying every single day. My love for him is killing me. Will you please help me get out of this?

A husband and wife shares a beautiful relationship where apart from care and concern love and affection, physical intimacy also plays a greater role to get the family life to completion. Any person would be good depending upon how he treats the other concerned person in his life and how he was taken by the other half. You have come out of a relationship that too very recently. You will have to face very many concerns regarding self, family and society. You will of course be depressed and think about the past and worry as future will appear bleak to you. The decision taken is with a proper reason. There is nothing to feel guilty about it. It will take time for you to come out and it demands time. So give it that time to yourself. It will be alright once you gopast those memories still you are down take a course of antidepressants from a psychiatrist to pull yourself up. Take care.

You try to wear a proper goggle and mask if your working condition demands so. If still your eyes are swelling better meet an opthalmologist to check the condition.in the construction work you can't avoid dust smoke and all weldinghazards. If you are new it ll get accommodated after some time. Seek help from a concerned specialty person and get treated if it continues after protection too.

You might have seen many but might not have said your symptoms properly. Some psychopathology mimiks depression it might not be so. If the time spent is little and if the doctor is carried away by the word depression then you will be treated by antidepressants and you would not have got a cure. If you have not seen better results prior you undergo psychometric tests from a clinical psychologist from your area and then meet the psychiatrist with the report. That might help as certain things unresolved, unexplored and unexplained might come out in these series of tests. Finally you need to get treated by medicines and if there is a need the Dr. might suggest you psychotherapy too which ll help you in addition to pharmacotherapy.

You need to personally take him to a psychiatrist get him examined and treat him with medication. With his old age and other medical condition it's better to get treated with proper examination. Old age haunts many with fear of dying. You can't diagnose it to be depression there are very many other conditions with similar symptomatology like old age psychoses, dementia and neuronal degeneration. Etc. So it's better to take him personally to the concerned dr, explore the symptoms and treat take care.

I am about to get married but I am getting very anxious day by day. I am not excited as others should be on their marriage being fixed. Neither am I that happy or elated. I like that guy ,he loves me and I like him too .He is a kind, genuine and nice natured guy. But I don't like his mom. I have met her a few times and I don't get great vibes from. I have always believed that I will treat my mom in law as my own mother and will share similar relationship with her as well. But here I don't see her being like my. Mom at all.

No person will be similar to any other person. Depending upon their environment, their emotional outlook people vary. Its rather a great thought to treat mom in law as your mother. But expecting that to be a criteria will not fetch you good in marraige life. You should rather bother about the person you are going to get married than others as after marraige the situation changes. You should have proper understanding with your soulmate that's more important. And its difficult to judge people in few meetings. You are going to start a new life be open to it think positive about people and accept everyone with open heart. There might be mismatches in opinion but just ignore and accept the person as they are rather wanting that person to your expectation. It will cause distress. Starting a new life with positivity and happiness will make you stay happy and comfortable in a relationship. All the best and have a wonderful married life.

In borderline personality depression will be there as you feel emptiness, loneliness, seek of self assurance, mood swings, shallowness, etc. When there is a personality issue you need to try not to convert it into a disorder by self analysing the situation you react and the way you handle every life situation. Personalizing, taking everything straight to heart form part and parcel of cognitive error which is common in depression. Along with medication seek help for CBT with a clinical psychologist nearby, which might help you.

Thoughts could be improved by changing the way you think, act ,react to a situation/problem. It also depends on your mood state of the day, your surroundings. These have direct connection with your medical condition and how you take it and accept it. With ailment its difficult to accept it as it is. There will be a mind question - why me/ will linger around. When you expect something or take the expectation of the near and dears as it is and not able to accomplish, there comes self esteem issues. Its part and parcel of your medical condition too. Acceptance and trying to reduce those negative thoughts might help you. Read on mindfulness which will help to tackle and improve your mood state in day to day condition. But you need to follow the steps diligently.

Ofcourse yes, in any relationship there are always ups and downs. The mood state of the person changes depending upon the day, what they face, the stress they undergo on that day in work, family, the people they meet and if girls then depending upon their hormonal changes and tolerance level of the person. The same problems handled before in a calm way may vary later depending upon the changing scenario, situation it happened and people around. Give it sometime, some space and open up with her and ask. She might open up beautifully and everything will become same as before. Since you assured of genuineness in your relationship, there might not be any major problems, take care.

Mr. lybrate-user, please look for a sign of depression or any amount of stress in her. Adjusting to new situation takes time for few. She might be used to doing work slowly or not have done any work before marriage. She might have been a pampered kid where her mother wouldn't have allowed her to do any. Try to ask about it and understand her. Provide her the needed cushion and comfort. It will change her. Meet a nearby psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist to explore if she is not opening up with you.

How far the drug ;"Five Phos", can be useful for a patient undergoing treatment of Schizophrenia with allopathic medicine" Oleanz RT 20? And can it be combined together with Oleanz & its usage shall not add any side effects? Our family is a staunch believers of Homeopathy & from our very childhoods we took only Homeopathic drugs & are happy even today. Kindly revert with your valuable advice.

Follow either one stream of medicine, if you and your family believe homeopathy so much, why take oleanz, take either only homeopathy or allopathy, sometimes drug interaction can lead to total kidney shutdown.
