Yes, it s a type of social phobia. If it happens only during seminars, you can take anxiolytics 2 hours before the seminar. Consult a psychiatrist for the same. Behavior therpay approach can also help. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivational therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

I want to boost up my memory power and concentration Because I lack it. Which homeopathy medicines should I take?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Suvankar. Memory power is determined by heredity aspects, hormonal activities and above all your attitude and how you use your brain. There are no miracle medicines to improve your brain power. The best method is to use your brain as much as possible. Engage in creative activities and mind games. You will see the difference. Take care.

For plantar fascitis treatment mostly is conservative and lifestyle modifications to achieve maximum functionality with minimum pain. Follow these lifestyle changes religiously to get benefit. 1. Reduce body weight as obesity will aggravate the stress on heel. 2. Avoid exercises like running / walking on hard surfaces. Stop such activities when you start developing pain. 3. Roll your feet on bottle of cold water for 20 mins 4 times a day or can apply ice pack. 4. Use shoes with silicone sole inserts. 5. Do calf muscle and heel stretches daily. 6. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 7. Use night splint to keep foot flexed at night. Stop using it once pain is relieved. 8. Use analgesics like Ibuprofen for decreasing pain and inflammation. With proper lifestyle changes as above 90 % patients have relief and functionality. Only 10% patients would require surgical intervention like plantar fascia release or gastrocnemius recession. For further queries consult again.

I am 19 Years old and I have short term memory loss problem from last few weeks! What should I do to make my memory strong?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Hi, Short term memory loss in a male of 19 years is mainly due to poor attention, ill sustained concentration / anxiety. I suggest you to relax. Do not take too much of load on yourself, try to do things one by one and not too many things at a time, note down important things for easy recall, set alarms/reminders in mobile phone for important events, repeat you lesson again and again. For studying try to imagine and recall your learning after closing your book and see book immediately in case of doubt; this will further deepen you memory. You may use some clues for easy recall. Also take healthy nutritious diet with lot of fresh fruits, salads, sprouts etc, have regular exercise in fresh air, have enough time for recreation, rest and sleep. I think you be benefited. I wish you all the best.

I get angry a lot. On small small things. How to manage my anger?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand.

Hello lybrate user. You have not mentioned about the issues for which you get tensed easily. But in general at your age there is a lot of performance pressure and expectations which may build stress if not handled appropriately. You may need to work on some of your coping skills so as to deal with difficult situations. You may get in touch to learn a few. All the best.

Improve Your Relationship With Your Partner in 5 Simple Ways

M.D Psychiatry , Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Navi Mumbai
Improve Your Relationship With Your Partner in 5 Simple Ways

Quarrels are an integral part of any healthy and serious relationship. However, an overdose may lead to severed ties. It bruises your memory and leaves you too distraught to engage in an emotional attachment.

If you are struggling in your relationship, you might find it helpful:

  1. Empathize with your partner: The ability to empathize is what inhibits us from just going through life doing whatever we want, without any regard for others. It is what makes compromise in a relationship possible. If you realize that something you have done has hurt your partner, you will hesitate to do that again.
  2. To complain as least as possible: Keep low expectations from your partner. The most common reason for conflict in relationships is the list of expectations, which when left unfulfilled leads to complaining and nagging. What you do for your partner is what'you think is the right thing, but your partner may not hold the same perspective.
  3. Stop using labels: labeling is an indecent way of identifying the problem with your partner or with the relationship in general. You should neither brand yourself as something or your partner as something else. Associating critical adjectives with one another is a way of demeaning your lover and can dissuade your partner from communicating his or her viewpoint.
  4. Express yourself: Express thoughts, feelings, and wishes. Resentment can build when couples sweep things under the rug, so be vulnerable and don't bury negative feelings, but try to express them in a respectful way. Opening up to your partner can make you feel vulnerable and exposed, but it is the most important part of an intimate relationship.
  5. Try to rekindle the spark: Time, overburdening responsibilities or workload can make your relationship a routine affair. An element of secrecy and excitement is important. Therefore, desire should never take a backseat in your relationship. Try to fulfill your partner's desire and let him or her know about your expectations as well.

Dear Lybrate user Taking Medicines for over a longer period of time. Try avoiding these medicines. These shortcuts lead to long term and life long damage. Instead Try include some physical activity in your daily schedule. Physical exercises releases chemicals in brain which will help you in sleep, in turn reducing your anxiety. You can go for brisk walk, workout at gym. Involve your friends and family members in your exercise routine so that it will help you in keep going. You can also take one on one sessions with a Psychologist. Take Care.

Your alcoholism is not at all useful especially if you are frustrated and'addicted' to dreams which are unrealistic: this will only further the frustration and the alcoholism. Being divorced and having the custody of your child, you have a very important responsibility where you must act and remain sober. A failure in your career and personal life does not make a very reliable person and this is being imbibed by your daughter every day. Considering all these facts, your alcoholism will give you temporary relief and an equally vengeful reaction after the wearing out of the alcohol. During the high you will fantasize a lot and will tend to believe in those pipedreams. So, it is a vicious circle of dreaming high when you are drunk and slumping low when you are sober and discovering that it was all wild imaginations and this will make you dip into a depression. You may be scripted to ruin your life in this fashion and alcohol is a good aid to meet this tragic end. You need serious counseling or rehabilitation quickly to make straight your life and career. You may use antabuse as a preventive medication and abide with the counseling for a period of three years of abstinence. You will need to attend aa meetings simultaneously, and your daughter, depending on her age, will also need to attend al-teen meetings to resolve her issues connected to your drinking. You need to be responsible for the two of you and with proper counseling all aspects of your life can be put in order.
