Hello, You get relief after smoking that is the temporary effect of tobacco on your body which indirectly acts as an analgesic and the pain subsides for some hours. As per symptoms you will need an otoscopic examination of the ear which is possible only if you visit an ENT specialist. Rest I can advise you is try to quit smoking because it is harmful for your lungs and body and it will also subside body signals such as pain and other symptoms which are seen in some diseases. For detailed history taking and treatment you can take my online consultation here: www.Lybrate.com/dr-prashantpawar Thank you.

Hello lybrate-user, these symptoms are falling into the clinical diagnosis of adhd (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Although I do not want him to be labeled as adhd yet. Your child is full of energy. We need to divert this energy towards creative activities. For which you will definitely need help of a skilled doctor. The main objective is to improve his concentration in studies. I also want to improve his connection with other kids of his age. So I advise you to consult a skilled doctor soon. You can consult me by clicking on consult tab.

I am not sure about what you are referring to but,,, Following expalination and tips are scientifucally proven and if done on a regualr basis will help manage your stress and thus reduce depression. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hello doctor m alcoholic person and when I start it my weight was 50 kg but now with in 2 years m 86 kg now. How can loose my weight and any advise to quit my bad drinking habit.

Hello doctor
m alcoholic person and when I start it my weight was 50 kg but now with in 2 years m 86 kg now. How can ...
When you quit your drinking habit I can assure you that you will lose weight in the bargain. Alcohol contains empty calories and can easily add to weight gain. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

There is a problem that he may feel embarrassed to talk to you. Please take him to a sexologist or even a counselor and let him discuss his problems regarding performing the sexual act. Today there are a lot of solutions for these problems and unless he opens up no one can help him. So very gently coax him by assuring him that you will be by his side to see this through. If he is unwilling to visit a doctor then you may have to take a call on the future of this relationship. If this marriage has not been consummated, this is ample grounds to pursue a termination of the marriage. Again you may proceed with the utmost caution and care and only if he is absolutely non-cooperative do you need to tell him your decision and choice of action. You can tell him that you want to go about this with the least publicity and therefore his cooperation is essential to proceed in that manner. If there is some other problem, that will definitely come out in this line of action. Please discuss all this in front of the counselor or sexologist as the case proceeds.

My husband takes alcohol daily 2 bottles since 25 years. Want to know the medicine to make him stop drinks.what can i do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Suddenly you may not expect change from him. You may motivate him to gradually reduce the amount and frequency. It is very difficult to leave alcohol at once. De-addiction is not possible at home. If he gets motivated he can be admitted at a de-addiction centre or a psychiatric hospital for the same. I wish you both all the best.

Dear lybrate-user basically you understand education is very easy but like you so many students are imagining that it is very hard. Read book thoroughly without shortcut methods, automatically you will score good marks. At the same time you should not blame teachers & parents .follow the correct procedure in learning in maths formula is important without applying formula we won't get answer .avoid spicy items drink plenty of natural juice wake up in early morning & go to the bed earlier. Avoid playing games. Psychologist rajendran chennai.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, my first point here is do not panic, it is a very normal experience any young male can encounter in this age. The main reasons for one to have these symptoms may be due to the following reasons: 1) Lack of knowledge about sexuality 2) Excessive self monitoring 3) Gulit about sex 4) Any previous negative sexual experience 5) side effects of usage of alcohol, drugs, 6) Life stressors, excessive anxiety, fear (most common in your age) My advice is be reassured, just do not think about it, have good social interactions and maintain a healthy life style. If your problem even then persist kindly consult a doctor.

My son age 35 years is on treatment since age 16 years for Bipolar Disorder. Kindly enlighten me on prognosis of this disease. Should he enter into matrimony again? He has had divorce from his first marriage. He is keen on getting re-married and loves children.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am sorry to say that matrimony will actually disturb your son and his wife to be, if he continues to suffer from bipolar. His first task is to cooperate and resolve his condition to become a complete person again. He will also need to work on the break down of his first marriage and resolve those matters. The prognosis is good if he stays in treatment with medicines and therapy. It is the combination that works ideally. He should be episode-free for at least three years, functional, responsible, respectful and independent. There are three important qualities for an autonomous personality: Awareness, spontaneity, and intimacy. If he develops all of these in healthy proportions, he can be given a clean bill of health. Even if he loves children, he cannot be responsible with them if he is not responsible with his own life. You can probably use that as an incentive to recover. That indeed will drive him to be committed to his well being.
