Anxiety - Why Getting Rid Of It Is Important?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Gopalganj
Anxiety - Why Getting Rid Of It Is Important?

Anxiety is a disorder where the body is in a state of alertness as a result of a stressful situation. It is an inbuilt mechanism, which can result from stress, threat or pressure. Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The blood supply to the brain increases during anxiety, thereby quickening heart rate and tensing the muscles of the body to facilitate a state of high alertness. High anxiety levels can give rise to a number of health issues, reason why you should try to minimize your anxiety levels.

Here are 5 reasons to get rid of anxiety:

1. High blood pressure
Spikes in blood pressure occur during periods of anxiety. These temporary spikes can result in damage to heart health and blood vessels in the body. Anxiety may also cause a person to smoke or consume alcohol, which affects blood pressure.

2. Stomach problems - Anxiety is known to cause problems in digestion as symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and an upset stomach are reported to occur. It may cause vomiting, abdominal pain, and constipation.

3. Weight gain - Binge eating during periods of anxiety can cause weight gain in affected people. A study reported that stressed out women processed fat and sugar in a different manner than usual, thereby leading to an increase in weight. Weight gain can give rise to other complications like diabetes and high blood pressure.

4. Disorders of the respiratory system - People with respiratory diseases face complications due to anxiety. Breathing problems such as hyperventilation can cause further complications.

5. DepressionAnxiety can cause a person to develop depression, which can be life-threatening. Thus, preventing anxiety can help in preventing depression as well.

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

What short of things I should do to stay healthy during exams time. Getting nervous every now and then.

Avoid junk, high sugar, caffeine, alcohol etc. Eat fresh healthy food like seasonal fruits and veggies, lean meats, eggs, whole grains, nuts, pulses to fill you up. Exercise regularly and sleep on time to get enough sleep. Relax in between to take your mind off the studies. Focus on what you are good at and learn it well. Time yourself and practice staying within the word limits. There are many ways to study smart rather than putting in more effort and time. Contact me privately if you are interested.

I am suffering from depression since last 15 years. Getting medication but not getting fully cured. Why?

I am suffering from depression since last 15 years. Getting medication but not getting fully cured. Why?
Depression not responding or partially responding to treatment could be due to various reasons. At times depression may become less responsive it resistant to some medications. In that case we need to change the medications to the ones that benefit you. Also we can switch to some other adjuvant therapies that can also help. Many a times depression may be bipolar in origin and turtle r needs to be modifies accordingly

I am a smoker from many years for now. I smoke as much as 20 cigarettes per day depending on my stress. I want to quit smoking but I'm unable to do so. I am scared that if this continues then my future is in a big danger. Do I have any remedies to control then quit. When am on phone I'll smoke a lot.

Get aware of all the possible life threatening diseases that you may get from smoking. This will motivate you. Try to also develop opposite belief that how smoking can be bad for health. You are currently not looking for those perspectives which emphasize quitting of smoking. You overhear advice from people who suggest that smoking can ruin your life. Due to this you move away from solution. Try to see how quitting smoking can be good for you. Try to imagine a life without smoking and how people will appreciate you once you quit smoking. These will motivate you.

Dear lybrate-user, all these symptoms are stress related. Can call it stress disorder. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress.

My mother has always been very extremely possessive and she sometimes goes to extreme heights because of that. Recently on 28th April, I lost my father to cancer. He was diagnosed in JULY last year and survived only for 9 months. Those 9 months had a very negative affect on my mental and physical health. I got diagnosed with PCOD and Hyperthyroidism and the doctors have repeatedly asked me to avoid stress and tension. After my dad passed away, my mom's possessiveness grew to extreme new heights. She constantly keeps a tab on everything I do, who I meet. It feels as if I need her permission to breathe also. This has made me very volatile emotionally. I have started getting these episodes of anger, violence and uncontrolled emotions where I become so angry that I become abusive verbally. This is also taking a toll on my health as my bp sometimes goes as low as 80/50 then as high as 140/90 in a same day. I am unable to sleep, tensed, distracted all the time. I am seeing a guy she does not approve of but she needs to understand that he has been with me through the whole bumpy ride and even though I am emotionally a disaster right now he still refuses to give on me. She calls up in my office also asking about my whereabouts and travelling details and my job is also at risk now. All this is taking a toll on me every way possible. I really do not know what to do now.

It seems that you and your mother both need help. As for you, you have pcod and hyperthyroidism both of which lead to hormonal disturbances leading to emotional upheaval causing outbursts and depression. Your mother still is going through the phase of trauma of your fathers death, which may take some time to pass. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with all details, get a hormonal profile done before you plan on the management.

What are the side effects of antidepressant? what is alternative therapy for anxiety disorder?

What are the side effects of antidepressant? what is alternative therapy for anxiety disorder?
Hello sir, which antidepressant are you currently taking? as such every antidepressant will have its own specific side effects but in general antidepressants prescribed for anxiety disorders belong to category of ssri. They all have common side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, worsening anxiety, reduced sleep etc. Which occur only for first 1-2 weeks. After which body starts adapting & these problems disappear. Alternate therapy for anxiety disorder depends on the type of disorder you are suffering. You can get back to me for further help. Good luck.

I smoke around 5 to 6 cigarettes daily. I want to quit smoking but can not help the urge to smoke. And I do not feel much active feel lazy all times and also lost stamina having short breath. What can I do to improve in all these aspects?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.
