Actually my problem is I can't walk most times doctors are saying its because stress. Please advice

Psychologist, Calicut
Actually my problem is I can't walk most times doctors are saying its because stress. Please advice
Feeling weak in the knees or experiencing “jelly” or “rubber” legs is a common stress response reaction. Most people in fearful or stressful situations experience weak legs. The degree of weakness often is directly proportional to the degree of fear or stress. Also, since stress hormones are stimulants, a body that is persistently stress response overstimulated can become tired and feel weak. This weakness often is experienced in the limbs, such as the arms and legs. Fortunately, stress-caused weak legs is not caused by a serious disease, and is therefore, not a cause for concern. Once your stress and anxiousness have been addressed, this symptom diminishes and eventually disappears.

Hello, the best way of releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. Yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. But as you have high b. P, consult and do the exercises under a qualified instructor/ yoga-teacher only. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back. Stress can make mental health problems worse.

Due to the break up my friend is depressed she do not take her diet properly and becoming Insomniac.
What I can say you only is that this is not end of the world. We have to come across many failures in life. Life is very harsh but a true human being is that who make these failures his power and makes history. Make her realise her mistake and this you can do by a pure mind and hard work. Do not have a grudge against her in mind and think that god has some other more important work for you. These failures always teach us and I am sure you must have got a lesson by this breakup. Fix that lesson in your mind and move forward as if nothing had happened. Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I will recommend you following homoeopathic medicine to take alongwith ignatia amara 1m (dr reckeweg) drink 5 drops every 3rd day--- passiflora -q (dr reckeweg) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water daily night--------------------- report me after 1 week---------------

Hi, I am 23 year old,pursuing CA,currently in my 1st year of articleship. Nine months back I got into a relationship with a man who was 6 years older than me,this was the first time I ever got indulged in emotions of love.I felt our relationship was serious and will reach to a serious commitment,but he broke up with me in last July. After that I have gone into a depression,which I don't show to anyone.I am dealing in my own way. I feel very sad that a 3 months relationship has affected me so deeply and I am not able to get out of that sadness. My studies are getting affected,my work is getting affected. I hardly feel like smiling,I want to get out of this sadness and lead my life happily. Suggest a remedy doc. Thanks

That was your first mistake and hopefully, last too. Never get into a relationship, hoping for it to end up into a lasting one or even into marriage. All relationships are like trial-runs. Use it to learn how men operate, how they think, how fickle or strong they are in commitments, what happens to you around them, etc. Having learned from one person you move on to another a somewhat learned person and check how the next one functions. You will be surprised that there is so much to learn and understand that it is very naive to get deeply involved with the very first person you meet. It is also advisable, if you are considering long-term relations, to find someone closer to your age and below 5 years of an age difference. 6 years is marginal, anyway. Falling in love is a lovely state as long as it lasts smoothly. That is why breaking up is so difficult, especially, if it is decided by the other person. Divorcing after several years of bed and board, with kids to boot, and departing from each other can be devastating. So it was better that you did not enter matrimonial obligations and then had this fallout. This incident must be treated as a learning experience. There is no remedy but that you carry some wisdom into the next friendship and be perceptive and also prudent in choice. Don?t waste time brooding over this fellow. Move on quickly and dispose of all associations of his and do not frequent places you two visited. In other words take him out of your system and environment and in no time you will get over him. I am assuming that fortunately you did not get into intimate relations with him. Even if that had happened, nothing to worry about. If you are worthy, he is the loser. Look at the positives, and get into circulation with other friends quickly. Hiding your depression and sadness is not advisable ? talk about it and deal with it soon. Do some group study or attend some tutorials to help you with your studies. Cheer up it is not the end of the world, even if you feel so.

I have got multiple sclerosis. Could you help me by telling me about the diet requirements for an Ms. patient.
The development of MS has been associated with: a. an increased presence of antigliadin antibodies typical of gluten intolerance. b. low blood levels of vitamin D. c. low blood levels of antioxidants. d. high intakes of saturated fat so better to avoid high in animal fat or saturated fat Take gluten-free diet, which eliminates all wheat, rye, barley, and triticale foods, take diet rich in antioxidants consult for further guidance

Since the time I have got married. My wife does not want me to stay with my other family members. How should I convince her for the same?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you mean she does not want you to visit with them, then it is not right. But if she does not want you to stay with them, meaning to live with them, then she is right. Once you marry, you become one unit, and the more healthy distance you maintain with relatives or friends, it is better. ?Familiarity breeds contempt, and over time small things can become aggravating. You need your privacy and so do your folks. You must also remember that to your wife, your family is in-laws. There are always issues that crop up on both sides. Even for you to stay in your in-laws? place for long may become very uncomfortable. Of course in India, the son-in-law is ?god? and is treated like one and so you may not feel it as much as a woman. You can be a lot freer with your folks than your spouse. Why would you want her to go through such difficulty? Another thing I have noticed is that sons do not want to cut off the apron strings from their mothers in particular, as a result of which there are many games played out on both sides. For these reasons and more, live by yourselves and visit your folk occasionally.

Dear , depression and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called depressive disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding depression helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which depressive disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. In this situation, you are worried that your husband may desert you and live with somebody else. That also means you don't trust him. Lack of trust in your husband can destroy both of your life. Please trust him. Love him so much that he will come back to you from that woman you are suspecting. That is the only way out. Take care.

You need to see a psychologist for diagnosis first. Then, based on the reports go for psychotherapy or medicines as advised. Pranayaam on astha channel daily 5.00 am to 7.30 am will be helpful.

I am suffering from cold and headache and getting more tension on exam can you suggest something.

I am suffering from cold and headache and getting more tension on exam can you suggest something.
Hi. Take homoeopathic medicine - schwabe's alpha-nc and alpha-cf - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use bakson's nasal-aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -avoid exposure to air-conditioner or cold air. -take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -take enough sleep and rest. For stress/ tension: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks.
