Dear lybrate-user, if the pain is there even after decompression and laminectomy then it seems the compression has occured again. Some of the nerve is being compressed and it is paining but it can also be due to operative procedure. Do not join for work now, it is strictly not recommended.

What are the major causes of depression? How to free my friend from this, pls help.
There are a number of reasons why a person may go into depression. Here are a few major causes: 1. If there is something wrong with the body like if there is hormonal imbalance or some glands have abnormal secretions, it may affect the mind/mood of a person. Any kind of physical sickness may induce depression. 2. If the person is sad for a long time and is unable to cope up with the life situations. 3. If the person has faced some trauma in life, like loss of dear ones, loss of intimate relationship, being abused physically and/or mentally. 4. If the expectations do not match the reality of life. 5. If a person feels lonely and feels that he/she is not worthy of anyone's love. 6. If the person has low self esteem. 7. If the people around do not appreciate the person's skills, achievements or strengths. The person thinks he/she is useless. Kindly assure your friend of your support and love. Focus on his/her strengths and encourage your friend to meet new people, take up new challenges, pursue his/her own hobby. Give plenty of genuine positive strokes. Empower your friend to move on. Encourage your friend to have open communication with people.

You are going through grief. Its good that you seek help from a professional. Find a psychologist and get in to rebt. Dear death is the only reality of life. We all will face this some day, and death is not an end; its a beginning of some thing new. Read gita, its can guide you well.

Dear imtiyaz, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Hello, There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers. For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause. take Kali phos 30 ch , 5 drops once daily. If your BP is normal then take Ginseng 1x, 1 tab once daily after meals. Revert me after 10 days.

Hi lybrate-user why you doubt your treatment is not progressing in the right direction. To get relief of anxiety symptoms it takes about 1 n half month if severe it may take more. After that you have to continue medication for 2 years to avoid any relapse. Along with medication you need to indulge in various kind of breathing exercises avoid caffeine etc to tame your anxiety. Yes, it's curable. Consult for counseling. You need to learn techniques other than medication for speedy recovery all the best.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Meet a life coach and mentor, this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me as well.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, alcohol or any other kind of addiction for a long time is not easy to cure in short time. Rather it would be good to take your husband to a rehabilitation center near you. Alcohol addiction is curable with support from doctors and family members. Thanks

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

I'm worried about my wife's cranky behavior as whenever I would be asking her about her activities she gets mad at me. Wondering whether she's cheating on me or not. Cause she has the habit of hiding from me and doing things. Eg: talking to guys late at night when I am sleeping or chatting with guys and deleting the messages from the phone.

If this is what is going on, there is definitely concern about her intentions. But as you can understand we cannot go on mere speculation without specific evidence. If she is merely enjoying talking to her colleagues, even if they are males, there may be an element of innocence in all this too. How do you rate your relationship with her apart from all this? If there is a good rapport and physical intimacy, then she may be seeking some extra attention that may not be forthcoming from her relations with you. It is possible that you may be neglecting her too and this might drive her to other people seeking love and affection. You must look into this aspect and genuinely consider what I am saying to fulfill that lacuna to perhaps change all this drama. If on the other hand there is something of substance, you could find out very discretely from her contacts whether they know anything. You could also snoop on her and listen to conversations to see whether they verge on the infidelity angle, because of her suspicious behavior (normally I would not recommend this but since you are saying that she is behaving like she is cheating on you and talking in this suspicious manner, I am proposing this). You may also both go for marital counseling and get a professional involved to fairly and objectively enquire into your suspicions. Your final option would be to engage a detective agency and use their services to either confirm that she is being unfaithful or that it is all mere paranoia, jealously or suspicion. That way the truth will come out and that will give you options about which way you want to proceed thereafter.
