Lazy,less motivation, pain in knee while stepping stairs ,low vitamin d low b 12 was founded but it got resolved, chest tightness, when I was diagnosed with anxiety and when the medicines were not working I made everyone believe that it is something else like bipolar which is more serious now these medicines (bipolar) are also not working n I think I have anxiety and depression which is in its most severe state n causing me these troubling symptoms. All of this started when I was in my hometown suddenly I felt like fainting n after that for some time my vision got dark which was fine the next day in morning that was the period of time when I used to think that I have hit someone from my car n I used to check again n again n used to seek reassurance and this was the time when I used to think of different ideas of business and used to tell my dad about my creative ideas one-two of them were copied. I always had less motivation but I used to do the things I loved very bravely as in driving for long road trips at a very small age I always used to feel that I am not sleepy everyone around used to get tired when I used to keep driving.

There is high possibility that there will be confusion and mixed diagnosis due to your age. This is the last stage in your adolescence and because of hormonal and unresolved childhood issues, these symptoms will arise seeking a resolution. The symptoms will settle down to a more defined diagnosis in a short while and treatment can be geared to facilitate the correct prescription. However, there is a strong possibility that there may be a genetic factor that is getting activated also because of your age. Check your family history with your parents and find out the predisposition to any pathology. That will indicate the type of pathology that will finally come up. In the meantime, combine counseling with the medication and you will do a lot better. Because you are young the prognosis can be very good if you are cooperative. People with mental illness lose contact with reality and are therefore not aware. The more aware you are, the more likely you are of being in sound mental health. Now there are two types or levels of awareness: the internal and the external. Both require equal important but not at the same time. At any given time one might require more than the other for practical reasons. It is important to learn to vacillate between the two in smooth harmony as per the demands of the situation. So if there are thoughts internally, then the external behavior must match and conform to what is going on internally. This synchronization is a hallmark of the quality of awareness. So you must always manifest that connection, and there will be no discrepancy to raise other people’s doubts or your own about your mental health. You must put yourself on a tight time schedule of interesting activities and be in the company of people. You must do vigorous and regular exercise, eat well, sleep adequately and work on your emotions, especially fear. The treatment will take as long time and will will work very well if you are cooperative.

Hello you should try to control your anger as stress levels are high n your not satisfied with things happening in life humans tend to just brust out but only way to control is to meditate n talk to urself n try to convince urself n emotions are within every some keep at high level n some low, you just come out of all your failures or sadness try enjoying n keep urself busy reading novels, watching movies music you ll surely feel better. If you still don't feel better ask private question or consult a homoeopathic doctor n for sleeplessness never make it a habit to take medicine but for now you take homoeopathic medicine cypripedium 1m 4 times 4 days 4 pills only. Later try sleeping on own.

Most of us are watering the dead plants, knowing that it is sheer waste. We can do nothing about the past, because at the moment it is only a thought, and we can change our thought about the past. We are capable of choosing our thoughts at any moment. Let me give an example. You are entering a dinner hall where a number of delicious and nutritious foods on the dishes waiting for you on a large table. On the other hand, foods you never like, causing allergies to you like diarrhea, vomiting etc. Also there are dishes containing foods giving bad odours that you dislike, on an another table. Which dishes would you choose for your dinner. Undoubtedly the one that suits you. Likewise, we can choose the thoughts with a little effort that make us feel happy and positive views. Don't try to forget the past, it will be a valuable experience to be applied in our present or future to succeed. Keep yourself always busy most of the waking hours with productive activities and spend quality time with parents, friends, colleagues etc. Time is a great healer. Struggling to bring about the dead plants (past) or nourishing the alive ones (present), the choice is yours.

Getting married is a" life changing" experience. After getting married a boy and a girl enter into a new" role" of" spouse" and both have to shoulder a number of responsibilities. There is loss of freedom as well. All this causes stress if is not handled properly. You might be having different expectations from each other and probably are not able to express yourselves properly. Since, you are hurting yourself when angry, kindly seek help from a counsellor at the earliest. The counsellor will help you in understanding, expressing and managing your anger as well as your marital relationship.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future/marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear lybrate-user, Good that you are getting well gradually with antidepressant tablets. Depression comes without obvious reason or for a small reason. It is a brain chemical disorder. It is a fully treatable disorder. Hereafter try and stick to one psychiatrist, who can assess you periodically and increase the dose orf antidepressant tablet or change it or add another tablet or therapy. Your mind with help to live better, heart burn will not be there and you will have normal interest if all things of your life, once you are treated.

Stress - Relieve It Naturally With Ayurveda!

Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Stress - Relieve It Naturally With Ayurveda!

Who is not stressed? And who doesn’t want to be stress-free? Stress is good when you are suddenly faced with danger and the body primes itself by releasing stress hormones like Cortisol for the fight and flight response. But when you get stressed a million times for nothing in a mere 24 hours, you are harming yourself in more ways than one. The consequences of excess stress are deleterious on numerous systems in the body like:

  1. Digestive system and metabolic function which controls body weight
  2. Cardiovascular system
  3. Musculoskeletal system
  4. Nervous system
  5. Reproductive system
  6. Immune system

Excess stress can also impact our mental and emotional states and consequently our relationships. What’s more alarming is that even though stress is a contributing factor in a variety of ailments, its influence is easily overlooked. This means that you must seek help to even eliminate occasional nagging stress before it wears you down completely.

Ayurveda offers an abundance of building, nourishing qualities through our diets, our lifestyle, and our daily practices for reducing the ravages of stress on your body. These are some of the things Ayurveda prescribes for dulling stress

  1. Slowing down: Since stress hormones wear your body and vital systems down, slowing down to rest, recoup and rejuvenate is the best antidote to stress. Make sure to eliminate as many stressors from your life to cut down on impact of the cortisol bolt. Choosing to prioritize things like adequate rest and taking long slow walks, also help in slaying stress.
  2. Taking a bath: A bath, especially a warm one, relaxes the nervous system, releases tension, and helps to quiet the mind. You can add Epsom salts, essential oils like Lavender to calm, cleanse and relax your body-mind. 1/3 cup ginger powder and ⅓ cup baking soda added to the water increases healing. The ginger- baking soda combination encourages circulation, sweating, and detoxification, and is also quite soothing.
  3. Practising oil pulling: Gargling with warm sesame or coconut oil helps to remove tension from the jaw and removes natural toxins from the teeth, and gums. Just sip a tablespoon or two of coconut oil and swish it inside your mouth for up to twenty minutes. Spit out and rinse with warm water.
  4. Doing Abhyanga- Ayurvedic oil massage: This ancient practice of self-massage with nourishing oils like sesame oil, calms the nervous system, lubricates and rejuvenates the muscles, and promotes healthy circulation. In addition, the oil also forms a protective sheath around the body that can help buffer your nervous system against stress. All you have to do is to massage in ¼–½ cup warm oil into your skin before a shower.
  5. Practicing Nasya: Nasya is the Ayurvedic practice of applying medicated oil to the nasal passages. This reduces stress, soothes and promotes unobstructed breathing. It also ups mental clarity.
  6. Massaging your feet before sleeping: Before turning in apply some warm oils like Sesame, Brahmi or Bhringraj to ground your energy and soothe your nervous system. This also promotes sound sleep. If you sleep well, your stress levels will automatically come down. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Dear , no self treatment please. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Now 2017: Now after 4 years I sometimes get panic attacks and unable to do concentrate without sleep, have nervousness, sometimes unable to eat food also due to GERD, Unable to bear a extreme hot weather, still my left side is sometimes shivering, my breathing is long and feels heavy-hard to breatheVisited a psychiatrist once again and he had done all tests post which he said I have anxiety, has recommended "Tolaz 10 md" which I have taken for 6 months, it puts me to sleep, makes me tired and is helping only a little, This is a issue where not even my friends, wife or relatives are unable to understand as I'm looking and doing this fine, but unable to focus at work, not feeling appetite.

Sir my friend has lack of concentration problem he is not able to stable his mind. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your friend must be under some kind of stress which he may not be aware of. As soon as he handles that stress his concentration and memory will happily return! For which he should ideally meet with a counselor. In the meantime let him do the following:Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that his brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he will get the best concentration and recall. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that are too long to elaborate here but he can seek that from some courses. If his home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.
