Anxiety Disorder - How They Can Be Managed?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Ranchi
Anxiety Disorder - How They Can Be Managed?

There isn’t any person who doesn’t suffer from an irrational fear, but for most of the individuals, these problems are minor and under control. Unfortunately, there are some people who suffer from anxiety and fear to such an extent that it interrupts with their normal functioning and then it is termed as phobias. The good news is that you would be able to control and cure your anxiety and phobias with therapies and self-help strategies.

Understanding phobias and anxiety: Many kids develop different types of fears, which change from time to time and get completely eliminated when they grow up. This is absolutely normal and is a part of their growth and development. When a person reaches the age of seven, he/she is supposed to suffer from realistic anxieties such as academic performance, accidents, injuries and other similar incidents. But if the unnatural and unrealistic fear lingers on when an individual grows up to such severity that he becomes petrified with the thought of that specific thing, then it is crucial to pay attention to it.

Signs of anxiety and phobias: The signs of anxiety and phobias can be more or less and may vary in terms of severity. When you are able to understand a steady progression from mild feelings of apprehension to a full-fledged panic attack, it is a symptom of phobia. Normally, the closer the person is to the source of the fear, the more anxious and troubled he would be. It would take to devastating levels when the concerned individual is not able to get away from the difficulties.

Physical symptoms of the anxiety include

  • Frequent breathing with difficulty
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Pain in the chest
  • Trembling and shaking with convulsions

Individuals may also suffer from dizziness or light-headedness, churning in the stomach, tingling sensations along with cold or hot flashes and terrible sweating even when the temperature is considerably low.

On the other hand, the emotional symptoms of phobia or anxiety include feelings of overwhelming fear, panic and anxiousness. The concerned individual would feel like running off and remain detached from the rest of the world. It may make one feel that he is going to pass away and he is unable to control himself in spite of knowing that he is over-reacting.

Seek help at the earliest:
If the anxiety or the phobia one is suffering from doesn’t intervene in normal workings of a person’s life, then it should not be a cause of distress. But if it has taken terrible levels, then it is crucial to seek professional assistance. One may also help himself by taking the challenge of facing the fears one at a time, and it can be totally controlled with gradual and repeated exposure to the fear. If no therapy seems to help you, then it is best to consider seeking professional counseling.

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

Hi sir, My age is 24. Today if I listen any Songs they got stuck in my mind and loosing my concentration when I am in any important work. They got disturbs me alot. So I visited a psychiatrist and the doctor given some medicine. Names are FLUNIL 20 MG AND CLONIL 25 MG. I think those are antidepressants. Is it worth to try those medicines. Is having any side-effects by using those medicines. The doctor said to try those medicines for one month and get back to me. So please help me with that.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, you may be suffering from something we call as obsessions, which r repetitive, irrational and intrusive thoughts which create distress. Flunil 20 mg is a fine drug, if you have no response in 2 weeks, increase it to 40 mg. U can try one medication at a time and stop clonil for time being. Any allopathic drug can have side effects but if they r effective with minimal side effects, they r worth a try at least.

Homeopathic Remedies for Autism

BHMS
Homeopath, Agra
Homeopathic Remedies for Autism

The human brain is a unique and intricate organ, which performs many functions both consciously and subconsciously. However, during the formation of the brain within the mother's womb, the slightest of changes can cause damage to it, which manifest in many forms after birth. One of the forms it may manifest in is Autism.

What is Autism?
Autism, sometimes also classified as part of the Autism Spectrum disorder or ASD is a disorder of brain development, which will affect a child's capability to interact socially, in communicating through verbal and nonverbal means as well as exhibit repetitive behaviors. Some severe cases of these behaviors may also result in self-harm as well. 

Other than this some other characteristics may be:

  1. Major to minor difficulties in motor coordination
  2. Intellectual disabilities
  3. Attention problems
  4. Gastrointestinal problems
  5. Sleep related problems among others

How homeopathy can help
Conventional medicine is mostly used to treat some of the symptoms but is never used to cure or provide remedies for autism. A proper professional homeopath will be able to guide you to get the best results for your child and reduce all the problems of autism, if not outright cure it. Some of the medications that could be used to treat autism are as follows:

  1. Carcinosin - This is very helpful in children affected by autism who are talented, but are obsessive, compulsive, stubborn and also have sleep related issues. These children may also have addictive disorders.
  2. Agaricus - This medication is very good for children who may be mentally and physically awkward and show symptoms like indifference, muttering, talking, shouting or singing but not answering to direct calls or questions. Agaricus is very effective for children who suffer from involuntary jerking when they are awake.
  3. Cuprum Metallicum - This works wonders when the child is being very obsessive, angry and is inflexible, tense and is very aggressive towards their parents. Some of these children may even exhibit malicious behaviors and are usually averse to touch or being approached. 
  4. Androctonus - A child or a patient who tends to swing wildly from a stable good mood to a destructive mode can be calmed down or evened out by Androctonus. These children also exhibit behaviors of suspiciousness and quickness to act on their compulsion. 
  5. Helleborus - This is a very effective medication when the child is slow and under active and seems to be depressed most of the time. Some of these children may also have muscular weakness and helleborus is very effective in treating them.

These are only a few examples of how homeopathy can provide remedies for your autistic child and thus is an effective solution. However, you may need to consult a homeopathic doctor who can tailor make doses and medications after diagnosing the specific symptoms that you child may be having.

It takes a lot of motivation on your part to quit smoking. The treatment includes - treatment for symptoms that occur due to stopping smoking like irritability, depression, constipation, sleep problems etc. - treatment of craving with appropriate dose of replacements - treatment of associated diseases like respiratory problems as in your case. - regular follow ups contact me online with a complete history of your smoking pattern and lifestyle with a brief history of associated complaints if any so that we can work out the best possible management for you. Good luck, take care.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

In both medications alcohol is not allowed at all. So please do not consume alcohol, even if the dosage is very mild as in beer because the reaction could cause problems.

I think this is my psychological problem. I'm in deep love with someone. He doesn't understand. I don't feel like living anymore. I want to kill myself. But then when I think about my parents, I control myself. But I'm always in a depression state.

There is some kind of vulnerability in you to want to die for another person so easily. To make matters worse you say he does not understand. Are you saying he does not really understand or he does want to love you in return?! You must meet with a counselor along with your parents and see if there were any childhood experiences that have contributed to this vulnerability.You are just 20 and life has only begun and you already want to end it! You sound more and more like someone with a serious rejection issue. It has become so bad that I feel you are now rejecting yourself in contemplating suicide! You may be angry about something and because you think that it cannot be expressed, you are turning it inwards. The identity crisis is a typical issue of someone who is dependent on others for acknowledgment and tends to identify with other personalities. You probably suffer from low self-esteem. But far worse than that is my fear that you have this rejection issue, which is compounded with abandonment issues and separation anxiety. The fear of acceptance may then trigger a performance-oriented individual who will depend entirely on other people’s opinion and assessment of himself. This will make you even more vulnerable and susceptible to rejection, and you may hurt very badly and easily at the slightest sign of rejection. There is a way about this, but meet with a counselor first and see what can be worked out to learn to accept yourself first. If you did this you will naturally perform well and will not depend on others, entirely, for their acceptance. If you know of any reason to believe that this rejection is true from your childhood it would help tremendously. Talk to your parents and find out what they remember or you could take them with you to meet with the counselor. If you learn to accept yourself first then the identity may be formed, but the best way to develop an identity is to know your emotions and how to express them. Your feelings are a very good indicator of who you are. A counselor will help you do this well. Depression itself is anger turned inwards. Your life is very, very precious. You would be wasting it if you destroyed it for an undeserving fellow.
