Hello, try to control your mood swings and keep the stress at bay! take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. 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. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! 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.

Hi I regularly chew tobbaco. I want to quit this habit. But I fear that if I quit suddenly I may get health problem. Please guide me.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Quitting tobacco is easy if you take help. No health issues will happen if you stop suddenly, but there will be withdrawal symptoms which will be troublesome for 2- 3weeks. You can try nicotine gums to relive the withdrawal symptoms. Consult me in private so that I can help you further.

I am 45 years old female, Rama, I have a stammering problem and cannot speak on stage. Please help me with this. I have this problem since my childhood. Many words come to my mind but cannot talk in public.

Psychologist, Navi Mumbai
You should go to speech therapist, but at the same time you can work on speaking in social situations. For that you should 1st talk in front of mirror ,then with 1person, then 2 ,then with familiar person in social situations and then speak to stranger person in public place, this will boost your confidence.

Organic brain syndrome (OBS),

also known as organic brain disease (OBD) Organic mental disorders organic brain disorder, is an older and nearly obsolete general term from psychiatry, referring to many physical disorders that cause impaired mental function. It does not include psychiatric disorders. Originally, the term was created to distinguish physical (termed "organic") causes of mental impairment from psychiatric (termed "functional") disorders.

Acute organic brain syndrome is (by definition) a recently appearing state of mental impairment, as a result of intoxication, drug overdose, infection, pain, and many other physical problems affecting mental status. In medical contexts, "acute" means "of recent onset. As is the case with most acute disease problems, acute organic brain syndrome is often temporary?however this is not guaranteed (a recent-onset problem may continue to be chronic or long term). A more specific medical term for the acute subset of organic brain syndromes is delirium
Chronic organic brain syndrome is long-term. For example, some forms of chronic drug or alcohol dependence can cause organic brain syndrome due to their long-lasting or permanent toxic effects on brain function.[3] Other common causes of chronic organic brain syndrome sometimes listed are the various types of dementia, which result from permanent brain damage due to strokes, Alzheimer's disease, or other damaging causes which are not reversible.

Though OBS was once a common diagnosis in the elderly, until the understanding of the various types of dementias it is related to a disease process and is not an inevitable part of aging. In some of the older literature, there was an attempt to separate organic brain syndrome from dementia, but this was related to an older world view in which dementia was thought to be a part of normal aging, and thus did not represent a special disease process. The later identification of various dementias as clear pathologies is an example of the types of pathological problems discovered to be associated with mental states, and is one of the areas which led to abandonment of all further attempts to clearly define and use OBS as a term.

Associated conditions
Disorders that cause injury or damage to the brain and contribute to OBS include, but are not limited to:

Alzheimer's Disease
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
Fetal alcohol syndrome
Parkinson's disease
Intoxication/overdose caused by drug abuse including alcoholism
Sedative hypnotic dependence and drug abuse[3]
Intracranial hemorrhage/trauma
Korsakoff Syndrome
Psychoorganic syndrome
Stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA)
Withdrawal from drugs, especially sedative hypnotics, e.G. Alcohol or benzodiazepines
Other conditions that may be related to organic brain syndrome include: clinical depression, neuroses, and psychoses, which may occur simultaneously with the OBS.

Symptoms of OBS vary with the disease that is responsible. However, the more common symptoms of OBS are confusion; impairment of memory, judgment, and intellectual function; and agitation. Often these symptoms are attributed to psychiatric illness, which causes a difficulty in diagnosis.

Treatment of OBS varies with the causative disorder or disease. It is important to note that it is not a primary diagnosis and a cause needs to be sought out and treated.

Dear lybrate user...I can understand your agony, but in life there will be numerous instances when it will be mandatory for you to take your stand and disagree with other people. Always the one's who keep their own point at the top priority are the one's who leave a mark behind them. Everyone is different and everyone has different body structure and shape. No one gets greatness for their external appearances even the movie stars, but what they get greatness for is the expertise they have got. You need to be proud to be yourself, to be a human being and once you start respecting yourself, people around you will start respecting you. There is no reason always for people who bully others, but the motivation for them to bully is the distress and reaction they produce in the other individual. Stop giving them the thrill they get by bullying you and this will mark the beginning of change. I hope this is useful to you. Take care

You may consult a speech pathologist too. He shall evaluate and find whether the stuttering need intervention or not. Sometimes speech can be emerging and appear non fluent (normal non fluency) in which no intervention is needed.

Dear, are you sure, this is depression? you should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed because of some reason you know very well and therefore you are worried, sleepless, sad etc. These things happen. Nothing to worry. Ask yourself, why should I worry and cry over and over again instead of finding an alternative? once you introspect, your problem will start solving itself. Take care.
