I am fighting depression, anxiety attacks, fear for the last 5 to 6 years. I have uncontrollable fear of enclosed spaces and also stage fear. Guess all go hand in hand. I am trying yoga, meditation etc. It does help. But I think I need professional help.

Dear, you are experiencing social anxiety disorder. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Sir my brother take alcohol since 5 years. To stop alcohol which medicine should use?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

My age is 19 years I am a male. I get. To the point. I am suffering from from a disease which all doctors call IBS (irritation bowel syndrome. I frequently experience loose motions and cramps in stomach. It has been 2 years since I am ill. No medicines seem to help me even 1 percent. They say that this disease is related to mental stress but I do not take stress that much and my condition is not improving even a single bit. Please help me. The quality od my stool is less solid than normal (semi solid. I get cramps and pain in stomach while in toilet and every now and then. Please suggest me something. All doctors say its IBS. But somehow their allopathy treatment doesn't help me.

Hi, irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a chronic condition that manifests itself with abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits. As partially digested food moves from the stomach through the intestines, the intestines squeeze and contract to move the food. With ibs, intestinal movement becomes irregular, causing food to move too quickly or slowly through the digestive system. When the food moves too quickly, the bowel does not have enough time to extract the water and the result is diarrhea. Food that moves too slowly causes the bowel to extract too much water, resulting in constipation. Increase the amount of soluble fiber in your diet to increase the bulk of your stool. Bulkier stool is softer and easier to pass through your digestive system. Be cautious with insoluble fiber, such as wheat bran, which can worsen ibs symptoms. Take lecithin. Foods rich in lecithin are egg yolks, soybeans, cow milk butter and animal brains. You can also buy soy lecithin granules in most supermarkets or health food stores. Lecithin helps restore the endothelium which is often damaged in irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). Caffeine and nicotine serve as muscle stimulants and may aggravate sensitive bowels, contributing to ibs symptoms. Alcohol is known to be a gastric irritant. Get regular exercise. Exercise helps your body to deal with stress and promotes good bowel function. Some people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome are lactose intolerant. Try avoiding all milk and dairy products for two weeks to see if your symptoms improve. If you have been diagnosed with ibs and have bad period pains with it, then ask your doctor if you can try buscopan cramps (tablets) they're not recommended for everyone but they do work for period and ibs issues and the cramps that you get with ibs. Peppermint has been thought to help ibs (constipation and diarrhea) as it aids healthy digestion and relieves abdominal cramps, it can be taken in many forms, for instance in capsules taken before or after meals, herbal tea's and fresh peppermint.

My weight is 51 kg ,height 173 cm and age 29. Whenever I try to increase my weight , I become anxious unnecessarily whether I will get affected by cardiac arrest and depart this world. I want to gain weight to 75 kg corresponding to my height in 2 months in a healthy way and stay strong without anxiety. What shall I do ? Advise me?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
You definitely need to consult a very good dietician. Also gaining almost 25 kg in 2 months is not a good goal. The proper way to gain or reduce weight is taking an approach that does it gradually. You also need to remember that when you gain weight gradually then you are not gaining only fat but also gaining muscle mass. Then yiu don't need to worry about cardiac and other health related issues. Hope this helps best wishes.

Can be fully cured anybody with scihezofrenia and bipolar disorder, taking medicines (arpizol 30 and bupron xl-150) during last 3 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, you cannot be fully cured of these two conditions but you can become very functional and lead a fairly normal life. However, it is important to combine therapy with counseling for a long time; and effective measures for activities, skills set development, learning new coping mechanisms and being in circulation will go a long way to rehabilitate you soon. Even if it takes time be patient and persevere until you really improve. Get a lot of support from your near and dear ones and just remember to do commit yourself to the following rules of everyday living: be responsible in what you say and do; be respectful in what you say and do; and be functional in what you do, always. Do not self-medicate. Follow the doctor's prescription and keep the person well informed about all and every change you experience.

Effects of Excessive Use of Social Networking on Mental Health

Social networking refers to a multitude of websites that let the people from across the globe to get in touch with each other and interact through photos, videos discussions or audio. To name a few, Facebook tops the list by having over 1.2 billion active users monthly from across the world, followed by Twitter, Snapchat and LinkedIn.

As per the latest statistics, around 42% of populace online at one time, is using social networking sites either on their laptops or mobiles. Majority of this population is below 30 years of age, whereas the figure is changing for internet users aged 65 years and above. People use these sites to stay in touch with family and friends, to share things, express their views on matters and to find out what's happening in the other corner of the world.

But this usage can have many negative effects on the mental health and well-being of users both children and adults.

  1. It is addictive: It has been analyzed that these social networking sites are often addictive with people using them daily or even several times during a day. They log in to these sites for many reasons like to overcome boredom, distraction, to check their likes and comments which are usually a positive support after posting a status or information.
  2. It makes us do unfair comparisons: Various posts on social media at times make people compare their lives with others. And it is said, the grass is always greener on the other side, it makes you feel low thinking how idealized are the lives of people connected to you.
  3. Social media makes us restless: Many people start feeling restless when they are unable to access their social media accounts.
  4. Cyberbullying: Social media increases cyberbullying specifically in adolescents.
  5. Increased use of Alcohol: Social media glamorizes the use of drugs and alcohol since the teenagers often view the pictures of people using it and out of peer pressure would like to try them.
  6. Social media increases unhappiness: Enthusiastic users feel that social media fluctuates their moods also leaving them dissatisfied in their lives.
  7. FOMO: It might also lead to FOMO, fear of missing out. Pinterest might give you a feeling that you are not creative or talented, Twitter and Facebook might make you feel that you are not smart and are not enjoying your life enough.

Excess of social networking might also lead to problems like anxiety, feeling of imperfection, may induce a feeling of being miserable or in some cases might even cripple the basic need for social interaction. It has been known to create a digital landscape has exerts an unnecessary and increased pressure on the generation today and the general population has to a larger extent.

I feeling depressed and inferior by over thinking about the situation. How can be strong and overcome this situation.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Lybrate-user. Feeling depressed due to situations in life may be due to poor adaptive skills or inability to deal with stressful situation. This could be due to sveral reasons including generalised anxiety or depresion. If you feel that the anxiety is uncontrollable and you continue feeling depressed for last 15 days or more, visit me. You might need an anxiolytic and antidepressant along with counseling for few weeks. Good luck.

I have some psycholigal problem. As I am suffering from a recent breakup. So there is a big anger and restlessness.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not have a psychological problem but an emotional one: you are very angry and probably because you feel let down or taken advantage of. This sounds like a clear case of being let down by your boyfriend and therefore the restlessness. Perhaps at 35 it is likely more difficult and you may have been in this relationship for some time too. Look back into why this breakup took place and identify how much you have been the cause or taken things for granted. Then work on that for some time with a counselor and resolve it for good. You are still young and the possibilities are immense. But first get over this relationship before getting into another. Sometimes these things happen for the best. Suppose this had happened after marriage that could have been worse! Trust that there is a divine purpose and things will look up in time. Get quickly back into circulation and normalize your socialize life by catching up with old friends whom you might have neglected. Get involved with social activities and have a good time. You are now free and the whole world beckons. Do not brood and let it get the better of you. Talk to someone, including a counselor, and bring out all your feelings. Get rid of all reminders of this friend; be they gifts, photos, and avoid the favorite haunts, activities and people. In about six months, max, you will be out of this condition and ready to launch a new beginning. But in all this you must have learned a lesson, otherwise you will tend to repeat them without your knowledge. A counselor will guide you on that path. Become active, exercise regularly, talk about your feelings to clear it off of you. Otherwise you could land up with a depression. That can happen if you turn your anger inwards.

Im 22 years old female im suffering from mental abuse from my own family due to which i m loosing interest in everything that me doing and also me crying at any hr of the day I feel lonely at some point of time and I feel I shud end my life I need help for some medication.

Psychologist, Delhi
Dear Lybrate user lybrate-userwhen we feel any problem mentally then its really very painful because other than the one who is facing the problem no one can even feel even the 1% of the trauma through which one is suffering. Every single second is painful, In physical sufferings there are many peoples to look after and care but in any type of mental problem only the sufferer has to face every situation. But the end of the life is not any solution ,we get only one life after that we don't know what will happen, what we can do is to live every second of life ,enjoy every moment of life. Lets come to your problem why do you want to end your life? Because some one is abusing you mentally think about it is it really right that some one is not behaving good to you so you want to end your life, tell me one thing if someone is not behaving good to you then what is the fault of your life ,why do you want to end your life. You need medicines along with counselling ,if you need my help you can contact me online I will be glad to help you. This is the time that you should start thinking about yourself, only about yourself ,what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, if possible you can go to someother place for few days, and with the help of any common relative or any one if possible try to talk to your family and know the problem why they are behaving like this, don't think on this topic ,as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, once you become normal then you can analyse the situation and will find the solution But presently you need a break from this situation forget everything for few days and live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things first start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything. Good luck.

I have high BP and I get tense very soon. How do I reduce stress and tension without taking tablets.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
You will need to take medication to control your blood pressure. I suggest you consult your doctor and get your blood pressure checked regularly. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change any of the medications without the doctor's approval. Complications of untreated hypertension are stroke, heart attack, brain haemorrhage, etc. Other things you can do along with taking medication (NOT as replacement for medication) is restriction of salt in your diet, avoid oily fatty food, some exercise on a daily basis, yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Cultivate a hobby. Spend time with friends and family.

I am 20 weeks pregnant, nowadays due to some family issues I am taking so much stress and I am crying to much. My husband don't understand my feelings. I am in problem. I love him so much. But at this stage when I need him most he is saying that go and live at your home. I can't live without him. Sometimes I overreact on some things. But in a minute or two I apologize but he never forgive me. He stretched every issue so big. From last two days we're not talking to each other. I am dying at every moment. I don't want to harm my baby. Please help me what should I do.

There are two views causing your problem. One is, of course, generally pregnant women expect more love&affection and personal support from their husband. You are saying that only in recent days you have been experiencing so much stress. It means that you had been living well in recent past. The problem, in my view is, your expectation has become more than ever before, and your husband's offering is normal/usual. This imbalance may cause friction between you. The other view is, during pregnancy there occur a lot of biochemical changes in the body which affect our normal physiological as well as psychological functioning which include mood swings, generalized anxiety about the labor/delivery (fear or over expectation of the outcome). These conditions may cause you behave so or exaggerate your stress levels. I hope, by changing your behavior, i. E. Understanding and reducing your expectations to a level tolerable by your husband, will work well. Above all, the birth of your baby may change the entire situation upside down. Let's hope for the best.
