doctor. My marriage has been three years and I am very upset from my wife's childish behavior. Before the wedding , when we spoke on the phone . Then I thought she is a good girl and the happiness will fill my life. But after the wedding, the opposite result outcome. On the other side I was very frustrated by the pressure of my private job. Cause to messy management and long time exploiting I quit the job. Then I decided to open a small garment shop. B ut cause to lack of money. I discus with my wife to sell our gold jewellery but she did not support me and create an drama in the house. Now I am jobless 7 months ago. And I 'm drowning in debt for house running costs. I faced lot of interviews but no getting response. Due to all this, I hate my wife. I don't like to be with her at all. In these days I feels so lonely, helpless, depressed and totally lost. My self respect also lost in my all relative and wife's relatives. Day by day I 'm sinking in the dark. Just a few days ago I had decided to commit suicide . But I have avoided death . I do not think I 'll be able to put more time and death. Doctor please tell me how to make adjust in this situation and make also good tone between personal life and professional life.

You have said your side of story, judgement cannot be made without hearing your wife's side. Both of you go to an experienced marital therapist and find out the reason for these issues, if there is a personality disorder in one of u, psychiatrist would be better.

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. 

Treatment-

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!

What disorder causes violenceness, I am feel violence attitude and innocence lost?
When the inner peace that is naturally present in every individual is lost then a violent attitude sets in. Factors that makes the inner peace disappear are indulgence in sensory pursuit, having no control over the mind and failure to nurture the inner peace through spiritual orientation. If you are able to realize the error, then slowly and steadily you can set right things.

I am 19 years old male. I want to have sex some times. I was doing good in all other works. Of course I have tried to control by watching porn some times but I was not at all OK with it. Can I go to a girl (prostitute) for satisfying my desire by taking some protective aids. What was wrong about to have sex with someone who is OK to it. Is prostitution illegal in INDIA. I have checked some sites, that saying prostitution is legal in INDIA expect pimps and brothels. What should I do?

Dear Santhosh. Welcome to lybrate. Sexual desire is purely psychological and you can easily live without fulfilling sexual desire. There is no need to go to a prostitute to fulfill your sexual desire. Masturbation should do the trick. In my opinion, you should restrict yourself from using a prostitute. Take care.

Hello. Sometimes I have speaking problem. I feel difficult to utter words. But it happens only when I feel nervous. May be its due to stage fear. But what is the solution for this. Kindly suggest.

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
You can gradually get over the fear. Initially, try to rehearse a speech in front of a mirror. Then try to give a speech in front of your parent or sibling, then in front of a friend. Gradually increase the number to two and then three and so on. Try to achieve this over a period of 6 months. Have faith, i' m sure you'll get over it.

Dear Manish. Welcome to lybrate. You are just 28. Hypertension at this age is not essentially due to some physical diseases. This hypertension could be due to stress, anxiety and sedentary life style etc. Quitting smoking, physical exercises, avoiding stress and be calm and relaxed, restricting salt, eating a lot of vegetables and fruits etc can help maintain your blood pressure at normal level. You should work with your doctor and get his advice at any cost. Take care.

Due to severe chronic anxiety, my weight is reduced a lot. My bmi is 17.3 so obviously I'm underweight. Is it harmful for health. Can it cause heart problem and cancer? If you tell me definitely I will get rid of it. Unnecessarily my mind forces me to reduce my weight still for prevention of heart attack by anxiety and stress and confusion since hearing the news that my Friend's father died of heart attack a few weeks ago. And I follow like a fool what my mind says. Please tell me the details in a clear manner. Is chronic anxiety harmful for health?

Dear You seem to be having disease phobia in addition to chronic anxiety. You need talk therapy in addition to sertraline and clonazepam. You friend's father had other factors causing heart attack, like age, may be smoking, diabetes or blood pressure or lack of exercise or family history of heart attacks. I don't know whether you have any of them except chronic anxiety Cutting down on eating and loss of weight is not the only method to prevent heart attack. You need healthy food and a BMI of at least 23-24. Please come online for audio or video consultation.

I have very much tension from 3-4 days so I want to know that what I should do to keep my health good.
Sufficient sleep, diet and relaxation are required for physical and mental fitness. Identify and release your negative thoughts. Replace them with positive ones. Stop yourself from repetitive thinking. Distract yourself by doing what you like most i. E. Listening music, reading, writing, drawing etc. If the stress persists more than two weeks, get help from a psychologist to release your stress.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Everyone have fears. Everyone are afraid of one or other aspect in life. Your fear about riding bike came when you fell down twice from bike. That phobia will be vanished the more you try to ride a bike or when the time passes. Don't worry about the phobia much. I suggest online phobia therapy. Take care.

Ms. Lybrate-user. If your parents are always fighting and still living together it is possible their marriage is not in danger of breaking up. Learn to ignore and concentrate on your studies. If you think the environment is getting on to you, move to a hostel or paying guest facility for your studies. That way you can space out and be more independent. Socialise with your friends more often and talk about any thing but the home matters.

Alcohol Athletes: Can it affect fitness Performance?

Alcohol Athletes: Can it affect fitness Performance?

A lot of people believe in hitting the gym during the day and then a bar at night. One feels there's no harm in drinking a little amount of alcohol now and then. Don't drink and drive isn't only for behind the wheels, it's also on the field (and the gym).

First, let's give you a list of how alcohol can affect your body, and then we can get down to details! keep in mind these effects are within 48 hours of alcohol consumption, that too just after 2-3 standard drinks.

Decrease strength
Impair hand-eye coordination
Increase fatigue (by impacting liver function)
Mineral and vitamin depletion
Disturbed sleep
Impact cellular repair (since protein is affected negatively)
Dehydration thus affecting the kidneys
Loss of endurance
Unwanted weight gain

Do you really need me to go on alcohol isn't something that recommended for most people; for athlete's it just makes matters worse. While you're training or competing, it's best to stay away from alcohol! though, the best solution is to give it up completely to live a healthy lifestyle. Now let's get down to some technical details of how it impacts your organs (just so you don't think I'm talking in air.)

So first things first. Alcohol cannot be stored as energy. This means all the alcohol in your body is converted into fat hence the term beer belly.
    
Alcohol's effect on the liver can cause a problem in the production of oxygen which then interferes with the production of atp ie a direct source of energy for the muscles.
    
Sadly drinking alcohol before your workout hinders the circulation of glucose which is essential for energy. It has also been scientifically proven that alcohol diminishes protein synthesis which in turn stops muscle growth by preventing the repair of damaged muscles.
    
Another thing alcohol does is increase the urge to urinate which leads to loss of electrolytes. No no, I'm not done yet. I've got so much more fun facts related to alcohol.

Since alcohol is a toxin it disrupts the normal cell function.
    
Alcohol also inhibits the absorption of essential minerals like zinc, folic acid, vitamin b12 etc which are needed for metabolism and new cell growth (muscle cell included). 
    
The consumption of alcohol provides only empty calories which in turn displace valuable nutrients. That's just a loss of essentials and an increase of fat!
    
Do note, heavy drinking for a night can negatively affect the brain and bodily activities for 3 whole days whereas 2 nights of consecutive heavy drinking leave an impact for 5 days! evidently dehydration, fatigue, and headaches  commonly known as hangovers really don't mix well with the physical demands of our body.
    
Alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle which in turn leads a reduction in the ability to learn and retain new information. This could range from new skills to studying games or even applying strategies in a game.
    
Excessive alcohol can prevent the secretion of human growth hormone which is essential for muscle growth as well as recovery. For an athlete, that's bad. Bad
    

It's always better to prioritize a good day's workout over a night of heavy drinking. At least the workout leaves you worn out and exhausted craving for more! alcohol just leaves you with a bad hangover which leads to false swears of never drinking again.

Eat clean, drink healthy and stay fit!

The gastric problem is related to stress. That is obviously causing the problem of lack of concentration. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

alcohol in any quantity is bad for health in a normal person and more so in a person with diabetes. Plus taking regular treatment for diabetes is a must. Please understand diabetes is just not increase in sugar, it affects every single organ in the body like eyes (retina- leading to blindness), affects blood vessels supplying lower limbs and heart, leading to ulcers on the non healing on foot, going up to amputation, coronary artery disease causing silent heart attacks, kidney damage and neuropathy. So controlling blood sugar effectively is absolutely essential as well as avoiding alcohol consumption. Alcohol affects liver, patient fail to recognise hypoglycemia, affects stomach causing gastritis. Talk to him about these things, may get convinced. Thanks for the question.

Yes, you must visit a doctor or counselor. The talking to yourself and smiling is not a good sign and if it in the early stages, you can redeem yourself of a lot of problems later. If it is only depression I recommend the following: I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
