PTSD - 6 Major Signs + Treatment

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an abnormal condition of the mind that develops when a person is exposed to certain traumatic events in life such as accidents, sexual assault or warfare.

The major symptoms of PTSD are:

Reliving the traumatic experience over and over again; this leads to severe and long-term mental distress.
Recurring dreams about the events.
Provocation of traumatic thoughts by the slightest event that causes distress to the individual.
Avoiding memories and thoughts that might remind them of the event.
Developing a negative view of themselves and the world.
Developing social or specific phobias.
Treatment

Medication and antidepressants: Medicines such as paroxetine, sertraline and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) help the individual address insomnia related problems that occur due to PTSD and suppress nightmares.
Psychotherapy: This form of therapy is used to cure both mental health conditions (such as obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety and depression) as well as emotional problems that result from PTSD. Skilled mental health experts are needed for this form of treatment to be administered. They would listen to each individual patiently and provide effective strategies to give solutions to the problems. Some of these therapies are:
Cognitive Behavioural therapy: This therapy enables the individual to adapt to changes and recognize thought patterns which lead to irrational and negative behaviour and actions.
Exposure therapy: This therapy causes the affected individual to first become anxious by exposing him/her to the traumatic memories, situations and objects by simulating them. The therapy helps the person to overcome his/her fears and become comfortable in the same environment that had previously caused fear and anxiety.
Group therapy: This popular and effective form of therapy allows the individual to share his/her feelings, fears and thoughts with a group of people who have themselves experienced similar trauma in their lives. Sharing such experiences helps reduces stress levels.
Some Self-Help and Coping Tips include:

Avoiding situations that cause PTSD can worsen the condition. Hence, the individual should try to embrace and face such situations boldly.
PTSD can result in loss of motivation and stress. Try utilizing your time in socialising, indulging in certain or even exercising for that matter.
Taking some time out to relax and having fun is very important. This calms the body and mind, thereby improving one s mood.

Schizophrenia - Know the Causes Behind it

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
Schizophrenia has been recognized as a mental disorder that combines symptoms like hallucinations with distorted thinking and others like fright and severe paranoia. This condition is one that gets progressively worse over time and leads to delusional thinking. Oversleeping and complaining of fatigue are usually the earliest signs of this condition's onset. Eventually, it becomes a debilitating factor in the life of the patient, who will not be able to function in a normal way due to the severe symptoms.

Read on to know more about the types and causes of this condition:

Genetic Causes: Schizophrenia may be caused due to genetic factors and it may be a learned or inherited disorder. It is known to affect patients who have a parent or a sibling who may have suffered from this condition. Yet, one must also remember that Schizophrenia can only be influenced by genetics, and not determined by the same.
Environmental Causes: When there has been an exposure to a viral infection during the pre natal stage, the patient is susceptible to this condition. Also, it may affect children who have been subject to the loss of a parent or separation at an early age. Physical and emotional abuse in one's childhood may also bring on this condition. Low level of oxygen at the time of birth is one of the causes of this condition in many patients.
Anomalies in Brain Structure: When the brain ventricles of the patient are enlarged, he or she may be prone to this condition. Also, anomalies in the temporal lobes and amygdala have links with the onset of this condition.
Types: A wide variety of mental and medical conditions can manifest with psychotic symptoms that must be considered in the differential diagnosis of schizophreniform disorder. These include psychotic disorder due to another medical condition or its treatment; delirium or major neurocognitive disorder; substance/medication-induced psychotic disorder or delirium; depressive or bipolar disorder with psychotic features; schizoaffective disorder; other specified or unspecified bipolar and related disorder; depressive or bipolar disorder with catatonic features; schizophrenia; brief psychotic disorder; delusional disorder; other specified or unspecified schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorder; schizotypal, schizoid, or paranoid personality disorders; autism spectrum disorder; disorders presenting in childhood with disorganized speech; attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; obsessive-compulsive disorder; posttraumatic stress disorder; and traumatic brain injury.
Since the diagnostic criteria for schizophreniform disorder and schizophrenia differ primarily in duration of illness, the discussion of the differential diagnosis of schizophrenia also applies to schizophreniform disorder.

Brief psychotic disorder. Schizophreniform disorder differs in duration from brief psychotic disorder, which has a duration of less than 1 month.

Residual Schizophrenia is a condition where the patient does not experience the various debilitating symptoms of the condition, and is on the road to recovery. Yet, even in this type of Schizophrenia, the patient will not really show any interest in life and the activities around him or her. Finally, the last type of Schizophrenia is Schizoaffective Disorder which is characterised by the symptoms of Schizophrenia as well as the symptoms of major mood disorders. When combined, this condition can lead to major complications and complex behavior.

A patient suffering from this condition will need to see a mental health specialist like a psychiatrist or a psychologist on an immediate basis. The treatment will be carried out on a long term basis for the results to start appearing.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include:

3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.

I lost somebody close and some then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help.
Hi. I am sorry to hear about your loss. Losing someone causes grief reaction and this takes around 3 months to go completely. The stages of grief are. Initially there is denial for the loss that it is not possible to lose them. Second is anger towards god that why did he do this to you. Third stage of it is bargaining that god can have taken anyone one else or you instead of that person which also venish with tym. Fourth stage is depression which currently I think you r going through. And last stage is acceptance which will soon come and you will be out of it. If the stage persists for more than few months than definitely you should consult to a psychiatrist. So be cool and let the tym travel. If still you feel that you need treatment you can consult me. Thanks and tc.

Dear lybrate-user prasad. Hair loss in men is a common problem and it occurs as we have high male harmone level called testosterone. It is not associated with masturbation and decreased sleep. It is a myth and nothing is there to suggest any evidence for the same.

I think you are suffering from hyperarausal disorder with transvestic fetichism. The essential feature of transvestic fetishism is recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving dressing in clothing associated with members of the opposite sex. Another term for tranvestic fetishism is cross-dressing; people who frequently engage in cross-dressing are sometimes called transvestites. A diagnosis of transvestic fetishism is made only if an individual has acted on these urges or is markedly distressed by them.

You are suffering from dhhat syndrome and it's just a myth that if we lose our semen it makes us week. It actually a fear which allows the quacks to grow their practice. Just think if doing sex make someone weak, every married person should be weak. Another explanation is semen is nothing to do with our body weakness.

My brother is 25 years old. He is a sardar. My father had a transferable job. So people in other cities do not know much about them. Often, fun used to be made of his' jooda' (head bun). Also, sometimes my father used to humilate him or tell him to get out of the house. He still remembers what my father used to do. My father loves both of us a lot but when angry he used to behave like this. He was an extreme, when he used to love, he went of the way and when he was angry, he would go crazy. Over the years, he has mellowed down. My mother is a typical mother, very soft and lovable. My brother dominates over her. He used to hit her often (when no one was around). Once my brother crossed the limit(he was around 18 years), my mother went to her brother' s place. After that he stopped hitting but now he has stopped going to any of the relatives(maybe due to embarrasment). He didn' t go to college. He completed his course via correspondence. Earlier, he used to go for a walk to a nearby park. Now he has stopped it ( he fears something will fall on him or someone will hit him). Once he fell ill due to a stomach infection. Now he feels that something is entering his mouth and he keeps spitting every now and then. He keeps washing his hands and keeps rinsing his mouth. He doesn' t go out to open the door for fear of infection. He doesn' t eat food with his hands (my mother breaks the roti and he eats it with his spoon). My parents had gone to a psychiatrist befor. The doctor said that he is suffering from ocd and a lot of negativity. He even said that my brother is too sharp and for once even the doctor was confused. My father used to earlier think that he was lazy but now he he has accepted that he needs treatment. The problem is till my brother does not willingly get himself treated, it is of no use. My mother continues to do his work thinking that he is ill. He literally keeps her on her toes. Of late, my brother hardly takes bath and keeps sleeping for 16-18 hours. Whenever I try to ask him about what he wants to do with his future, he gets angry and tries to avoid the question. I would also like to mention that he had suffered from tb when he was 17 years. Kindly help/suggest/advice.

Your mother need to be counselled that your brother is suffering from ocd and she can not help him throughout his life and if ocd is not treated on time it will be difficult to treat and can turn into psychosis.
