I'm getting angered over a very small issues in my life. Nowadays I'm very obsessed with my career I'm trying my best to earn money and doing a lot of hard work but none I think stars are not in my favour every single day is becoming a challenge for me and I'm getting depressed. I'm trying a lot to go abroad but the process is getting delayed from the past 2 years. Because of this I'm getting extremely angry and my health is getting worse due to continuous anger. Nothing is working out for me, I'm a PhD graduate and I'm not at all satisfied with my career and earnings. My whole day starts and ends with a lot of tension. Is there any kind of past regression recovery therapy through which I'll be mentally stable.

Psychiatrist, Chandigarh
Meditation and relaxation exercises can help in relieving stress. Many people may not realise how their negative thoughts of one particular area of life can spiral and keep feeding ones stress. The trick is to learn to keep a time for thinking about ones career eh 7-730 pm. Rest of the day, one can set aside time for 10 minutes meditation, 30 minutes brisk walking, spending time with family or friends and hobbies such as music. Remember just as in our diet we eat different foods to stay healthy, the mind also needs different activities. Focussing on one thing like career the entire day is maladaptive. So learn to keep a time to think about stressful areas, and keep your mind free the rest of the day to enjoy other activities.

Make it a point to bring your mind from distractions to study and work. If you control your mind, mind becomes your friend, but if you allow your mind to wander or be distracted, then mind becomes your enemy.

It is quite obvious that smoking tobacco does not agree with your constitution. It is not that it is good for others but your body reacts like it cannot tolerate the effects of tobacco smoke. The only solution is for you to give it up completely. Anyway, who would want to continue in a habit that gives you so much of discomfort?

Keep yourself occupied, time is a great healer, no medicines or smoking to get over the ditch, may be she has moved on for a reason and you should learn to accept it. Do not remind yourself again and again, it will be keeping wounds raw and you will be rubbing salt on them by talking about it to people. Write everything in a diary and do not read again.

I think medicines with intensive counselling in the form of MET and RPT will be needed. Depending upon the situation, either inpatient or out patient may be required. I suggest that you don't lose heart and give up. In order to help you better, I will need more details from you such as previous records and detailed description of the amount and nature of drinking behavior. Please revert back with these details. Take care! Remember that people with far worser situation get better! Don't worry!

Hello doctor. I have a serious issue with my behaviour I sometimes get angry, infact very frequently. Actually we can call it irritation. I easily get irritated during any conflict of views with my partner, and I then loose the control over the situation. Which is a serious issue. Sometimes I get irritated with some kind of loud noises like noise of a cracker or a person speaking loudly. Sometimes my mood gets off for no any specific reason and at that time I take all the things angrily. Moreover I am over sensitive to certain issues and take all things to my heart and keep on thinking over n over regarding the pros and cons of the thing. I want a serious help.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

If all the above said are recent changes in your behaviour then these could be due to unresolved stress and depression. Females at your age are prone for hormonal changes, peri menopausal symptoms etc and hence depression. You might need some investigations to rule out possibilities of hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiencies etc. Dressing and anxiety improve for sure by treatment with medications and counselling.

I feel depression from some days and I am student of post graduation now a days I have no interest in study.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Agoraphobia and its management

Agoraphobia and its management

Agoraphobia and its management

Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and often avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

With agoraphobia, you fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line or being in a crowd. The anxiety is caused by fear that there's no easy way to escape or seek help if intense anxiety develops. Most people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks, causing them to fear another attack and avoid the place where it occurred.

People with agoraphobia often have a hard time feeling safe in any public place, especially where crowds gather. You may feel that you need a companion, such as a relative or a friend, to go with you to public places. The fears can be so overwhelming that you may feel unable to leave your home.

Agoraphobia treatment can be challenging because it usually means confronting your fears. But with talk therapy (psychotherapy) and medications, you can escape the trap of agoraphobia and live a more enjoyable life.


Typical agoraphobia symptoms include:

Fear of being alone in any situation
Fear of being in crowded places
Fear of losing control in a public place
Fear of being in places where it may be hard to leave, such as an elevator or train
Inability to leave your home (housebound) or only able to leave it if someone else goes with you
Sense of helplessness
Overdependence on others
In addition, you may have signs and symptoms of a panic attack, such as:

Rapid heart rate
Excessive sweating
Trouble breathing
Feeling shaky, numb or tingling
Chest pain or pressure
Lightheadedness or dizziness
Sudden flushing or chills
Upset stomach or diarrhea
Feeling a loss of control
Fear of dying
Panic disorder and agoraphobia

Some people have a panic disorder in addition to agoraphobia. Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder in which you experience sudden attacks of extreme fear that reach a peak within a few minutes and trigger intense physical symptoms (panic attacks). You might think that you're totally losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.

Fear of another panic attack can lead to avoiding similar circumstances or the place where it occurred in an attempt to prevent future panic attacks.


Having panic disorder or other phobias, or experiencing stressful life events, may play a major role in the development of agoraphobia.

Risk factors

Agoraphobia usually starts before age 35, but older adults also can develop it. Women are diagnosed with agoraphobia more often than men are.

In addition to having panic disorder or other phobias, agoraphobia risk factors include:

Having a tendency to be nervous or anxious
Experiencing stressful life events, such as abuse, the death of a parent or being attacked
Having a blood relative with agoraphobia

Agoraphobia can greatly limit your life's activities. If your agoraphobia is severe, you may not even be able to leave your home. Without treatment, some people become housebound for years. You may not be able to visit with family and friends, go to school or work, run errands, or take part in other normal daily activities. You may become dependent on others for help.

Agoraphobia can also lead to or be associated with:

Other mental health disorders, including other phobias and other anxiety disorders
Alcohol or drug misuse to try to cope with the fear, guilt, hopelessness, isolation and loneliness

Lifestyle and home remedies

There's no sure way to prevent agoraphobia. However, anxiety tends to increase the more you avoid situations that you fear. If you start to have mild fears about going places that are safe, try to practice going to those places before your fear becomes overwhelming. If this is too hard to do on your own, ask a family member or friend to go with you, or seek professional help.

If you experience anxiety going places or have panic attacks, get treatment as soon as possible. Get help early to keep symptoms from getting worse. Anxiety, like many other mental health conditions, can be harder to treat if you wait.

Some of the home remedies for agoraphobia include the use of herbs, such as chamomile, kava, skullcap, valerian, lavender, st. John's wort, and passionflower, as well as behavioral treatments like hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques, and the avoidance of substances like caffeine and illicit drugs.

Home remedies for agoraphobia
Chamomile: chamomile tea is often used to reduce stress and anxiety of all levels. It is rich in certain flavonoids and is also known as a sedative and nervine agent, meaning that it soothes the hormonal fluctuations and nervous functions that characterize agoraphobia. Chamomile can help you relax and ease muscle tension, lowering your chance of having an attack when a person suffering from agoraphobia gets into a 'trigger' situation.

Kava: this little known shrub is native to polynesia and the roots and rhizomes are commonly used as sedative agents for people with anxiety issues. The effects of kava are so strong that doctors compare the effects to benzodiazepines, which are very powerful pharmaceuticals. Do not use kava as a treatment if you are on any other allopathic treatment, but as a natural treatment, it is one of the best.

Passion flower: this vine found in north america is very useful in treating agoraphobia because the chemical components in the plant bind to serotonin receptors, controlling the stress response of the body and lowering anxiety. Like kava, however, passion flower has a powerful effect, just like an ssri, so do not combine this natural treatment with any other pharmaceutical treatments.

Skullcap: this herb strengthens the nervous system by regulating nervous responses and also reducing inflammatory effects throughout the body. Skullcap makes for a more balanced and manageable stress response system.

Valerian root: this is an extremely popular treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions, including insomnia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue. In terms of agoraphobia, valerian root can bind with the benzodiazepine receptors in the body, which makes it like natural valium, without the other side effects. This is an easy-to-use solution for agoraphobia that can help bring you back into the wide world without fear and panic.

Lavender: this popular herb and essential oil is very useful for reducing the effects of agoraphobia. Lavender's organic compounds actually inhibit the production and release of cortisol in the body, making it very good at slowing the stress response and eliminating panic attacks. Those suffering from agoraphobia can drink lavender tea or try aromatherapy with lavender essential oil to see if it has positive effects on their behavior and emotions.

St. John's wort: when it comes to calming the body and nervous system, st. John's wort can be a wonderful and widely available option. This herb decreases the levels of norepinephrine in the body, which means that the stress response system is dramatically managed and kept under control, thereby decreasing feelings of panic and anxiety, allowing agoraphobics to live relatively normal lives.

Hypnotherapy: in terms of behavioral treatments for agoraphobia, hypnosis has shown some benefit. While the therapeutic efficacy of hypnosis is still under great debate, research has shown that in terms of behavior modification and anxiety disorders, hypnotherapy can help the body respond more appropriately to normal situations, without engaging the stress response system.

Avoid caffeine and drugs: if you suffer from agoraphobia, the most important thing is to not get worked up or overly excited, nervous, anxious, or energetic. A calm and balanced approach to life is the best way to prevent a panic attack or an anxiety episode to crop up. Therefore, high-caffeine content beverages like coffee and energy drinks should be avoided, as well as substances that alter your mind in various ways, such as alcohol and illicit drugs. Even smoking cigarettes, which many people turn to as a stress reliever, elevates your heart rate and can imbalance your system, undoing all of the good work that the other natural remedies have done for the condition

Dear sir, I am in very much depression, pls suggest me, I have already use serta 100 mg for last 9 months but there is no good result. I am taking treating from pgi chandigarh

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You must combine medical treatment with therapy to ideally combat depression. Seek a counselor who is well versed in treating depression to get you to develop skills and techniques to deal with the daily challenges that life throws at you. Medication does not give you these adaptations but it certainly addresses the chemical imbalances in the brain to bring about normalcy. Apart from that you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins, nuts, and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings too.

Heel Pain: Know The Causes Behind It!

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Chennai
Heel Pain: Know The Causes Behind It!

Oh my aching Heel!! The combination of foot and ankle consists of 26 bones, 33 joints and an excess of 100 tendons. The longest bone present in the foot is the heel. Over usage or injury to the heel would lead you to experience pain in the heels. The severity of the heel pain can range from mild to excruciating. 

The cause behind heel pain is typically associated with excess usage of the heel bone. Straining of your heel occurs if you excessively pound your feet on surfaces that are hard, or you are overweight or even if you wear shoes that do not fit your feet properly. These strains cause irritation in the muscles, bones or tendons that are present in the heels. Some of the other common causes include: 

  1. Heel Spurs: Development of heel spurs occurs due to the continuous stretching of the lining, which covers the heel. Upon continuous stretching, pieces of the lining tend to break off. Development of heel spurs is common in athletes who frequently jog or run. People who are obese also tend to experience pain due to heel spurs. 
  2. Plantar Fasciitis: Development of Plantar Fasciitis occurs due to the inflammation of the tendinous tissue that connects the heel to the ball of the foot. Development of Plantar Fasciitis is common in athletes who frequently jog or run as well as people who wear shoes that don't fit the feet properly. It may occasionally be associated with Vitamin B12 deficiency and raised uric acid in blood 
  3. Achilles Tendinitis: This is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Achilles Tendinitis occurs commonly in people who have active lifestyles, such as people who are joggers, runners or even dancers. 


Physical therapy, medication or alternative treatments can be used to treat this form of pain. Medications for heel pain can only be in the form of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although these oral medications cannot significantly relieve heel pain, some injections containing substances such as corticosteroids, as well as Arthrocentesis (removal of fluid present in joints using hollow needles) might be able to provide relief. Recently PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection have been found very useful in treating recalcitrant Plantar fasciitis and heel pains. 

Common practices that can be used to relieve discomfort include: 

  1. Application of ice to the heel for a duration of 15 minutes daily. 
  2. Utilize over-the-counter pain medications.
  3. Have adequate amounts of rest.
  4. Wear shoes that fit properly.
  5. Walking on tip toes to stretch the plantar fascia helps to relieve heel pain.

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

Hi lybrate-user, it's the doctor who decides which category you belong to, they know it better. So if he has prescribed medicines for you, you should take it first and when it's under control you can go for therapy sessions.

I think your mother needs help because her reactions to routine situations and happenings of life are not normal. Also I feel she has some problem related to her own personal life like marital or work related and that's why she is reacting. Relax she has no problems with you, its unintentional. Firstly you sit down with her (and please avoid blaming her for her reactions) and ask her how she is, give her a nice hug and talk to her about her daily routines, house work life and relationship with your father and other relatives. If you can not handle this then connect an expert in relationship/Psychotherapist for a talk with her. You may connect me or anyone nearby either online or in person. She will be alright once her stress is managed and relief measures are in place.

Dear lybrate-user, feeling of imbalance and headache may cause you problems. I need to know the extent of those problems, like what all routine activity you are not able to do. After that diagnosing appropriately is important, both hypertension and its tablets may cause problems. It is good that you quit smoking. In cold turkey way, you may get few withdrawal symptoms. For controlling them you may need for few weeks, may be 12 weeks, nicotine replacement as gum or patch. Pain in head may be a withdrawal of nicotine. But imbalance is not a usual withdrawal symptom.
