Symptoms and treatment of OCD


I welcome all Lybrate viewers. Mera naam Ashish kumar Mittal hai. Main Columbia Asia Hospital, Gurgaon mein Consultant Psychiatrist hu. Aaj hum Obessive Compulsive Disorder ya OCD ki bimaari ke baare mein discussion karege.

Is bimaari ke pramukh symptoms hai baar bar safai karna ya safai ka vehem hona. Is bimaari mein log apne ghar ko baar baar saaf karte hai, zada kapde saaf karte hai, bartan dhule hone ke baawajood usko saaf kar dete hai. Kaafi logo ko dekha gaya hai infection ka vehem ho jaata hai. Unko lagta hai wo koi bhi cheez ko touch karege ya unknown cheez ko touch karege toh infection unme aaj jayege. Toh jiske wajah se wo koi bhi cheez ko touch karne se avoid karte hai, paper napkin ya romaal use karte hai. Ya fir log touch karne ke baad baar baar hath dhote hai. Market se aayege toh unko lagega ke koi infection unke shareer pe lag gaya hai aur wo nahane chale jayege jisme wo kaafi samay lete hai.

Is bimaari mein mareezon ko dekha gaya hai ke galat galat thoughts aate hai. Wo bhagwaan ke liye ho sakte hai ya apne family members ke liye bhi ho sakte hai. Toh is bimaari ke pramukh symptom hai doubt, fear ya negative thoughts aana. Is bimaari ke wajah se log repetition karte rehte hai, ek hi kaam ko karte rehte hai jisse wo thak jaate hai aur apni full efficiency se kaam nahi kar paate, jisse unke kaam mein delay ho jaata hai, ghar ke kaam mein delay, koi job kar raha hai toh job mein unko kaafi diqqat aati hai halaaki ye log kaafi samajhdar hote hai lekin bimaari ke wajah se dhang se kaam nahi kar paate hai, naahi uspe dhyan laga paate hai. Is bimaari ke wajah se wo dusro pe gussa bhi karne lag jaate hai kyunki unki ek tendency bann jaati hai perfect tareeke se kaam karne ki.

Is bimaari ke hote huye bhi logo ko pata hai ke diqqat hai unke sath aur baar baar repeat kar rahe hai, par wo ye sochte hai ki ye unki aadat hai. Wo nahi soch paate kaafi baar ke jaankari ke abhaav mein ke ye ek bimaari bhi so sakti hai. Dusre log bhi sochte hai ke ye iski aadat hai ya ye vehmi aadmi hai aur wo is bimaari ke bare mein naa jagrut hona chahte hai aur naa lena chahte hai. Lekin aapko dhyan rakhna hoga ke ye ek bimaari hai. Ye ek OCD ki bimaari hai jiski jaankari aajkal internet se bhi avail kar sakte hai. Agar aapko ye symptoms hai toh aap apne nearbypsychiatrist se mil sakte hai aur usse consult kar sakte hai. Treatment ke roop mein isme medical treatment and counseling ke roop mein CPT ya ERP kiya jaata hai jo ki har bade sheher mein available hai.

Agar aapko OCD se related koi bhi samasya hai toh aap mujhe gurgaon mein sampark kar sakte hai ya Lybrate pe consult kar sakte hai.

Hello, everybody. I am Dr Ashish Kumar Mittal and I am M.D. Psychiatrist in Gurgaon. Today I am here for stress, anxiety and its management.

What are the treatments for this situation?

So we can do something in our lifestyle so that symptoms can reduce.

  • We need to see our sleep whether we are sleeping properly or not. Take 6-8 hours proper sleep. Fix your sleeping and wake up time.
  • Switch off the television, internet 1 hour before sleeping so that your mind can be at rest before sleeping.
  • Don't use excessive caffeine. Caffeine is present in tea, coffee, cold drink and chocolate. So not more than 2 cups of tea should be taken in a day. Because more tea can lead to lack of sleeping, more anxiety

In students, we can notice such things. To stay awake they consume more amount of caffeine through coffee or tea. And because of more Caffeine, they increase the anxiety in themselves and reduce concentration and disturb their sleep. So we need to watch it over.

Also, we can start exercises like cardio exercises or yoga which are very good to reduce the excessive anxiety. So these are some lifestyle changes. We should fix our meal timing. Engage yourself in some sports activity.

Many people think that ayurvedic and homoeopathic medicines bring a cure. I don't deny managing these things. But if you are not getting benefit from ayurvedic and homoeopathic medicines, then switch to Allopathic medicine also. It brings relief within 1 or 2 months. We have many patients who improved to great extent.

The third barrier in the treatment is Stigma. People think that if we are going to a psychiatrist, then we are mental. Actually, it is not so. The person who develop stress and anxiety problem, are smarter than another person. That is why they are developing anxiety problem, they are anticipating more, developing more, they are more bothered.

So when you will see the good doctor, you will see the number of persons is coming for the treatment. Then you will realise that you are not alone. The other people are seeking for the treatment. So don't worry about the stigma, worry about your health and seek the treatment. And the treatments are easily available if you search a good doctor.

If you want to consult me, you can consult me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Hello everybody. I am Dr Ashish Kumar mittaal. I am MD psychiatrist and I am practising in Gurgao...

Hello everybody. I am Dr Ashish Kumar mittaal. I am MD psychiatrist and I am practising in Gurgaon

Today we are here to know the management of stress and anxiety and its treatment.

The first question is what is stress?

Stress is that how our body and mind reacts to the life situations. So it may be Eustress or Distress.

Sometimes it helps us to move forward in our life. For example, during exams, we develop stress but due to that stress, our attention, concentration increases and we are able to finish things fast, we can learn fast and we can perform well. So this kind of positive stress is called Eustress.

But when the stress level increases, suppose, you have a capability of 10 and you have given work of 13 magnitudes, then your performance will go down and you will not be able to work or concentrate properly. So, this excessive stress is called Distress.

We can do something with our lifestyle to help reduce stress.

  • Switch off television and the internet at least one hour before sleep so that your mind is at rest before sleep.
  • Don’t use excessive caffeine. Caffeine is there in tea, coffee, cold drinks and chocolates.
  • Do not take more than two cup of tea. If you are taking more cups of tea there will be more anxiety, lack of sleep which will further increase your anxiety.
  • In student we see such a thing. In exam they remain awake, take excessive caffeine in the form of tea and coffee develop excessive anxiety which reduces their concentration and disturb their sleep. So we need to watch it over.
  • We need to take some exercises like cardiac exercises in reducing stress and anxiety, some yoga technique we can follow.
  • Fix your meal timings and engage in some sports activities.
  • Many people think ayurvedic and homoeopathic treatment bring a cure. So I am not denying their role in managing these things but if you are not getting benefit then switch to allopathic treatment. There is no harm in that and it brings great relief within one or two months. We have many patients who have improved like anything.

The third barrier in the treatment is stigma. People think if we are going to the psychiatrist for treatment we are mad. Actually you are not. The person who develops stress and anxiety problems actually are smarter than other person and that is why they have developed anxiety problem, that is why they are worrying and anticipating more. Whenever you will go to the treatment you will see with good doctors huge number of persons are coming for treatment. So you can rely you are not alone. Others too are seeking treatment. But what happens is nobody tells each other that we are seeking treatment. Don’t worry about stigma. Worry about your health and seek the treatment. Treatment is easily available. If you will search you will get good doctors nearby.

If you want to consult me you can consult me through lybrate.

Anxiety Disorder: 5 Risk Factors Against It

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Anxiety Disorder: 5 Risk Factors Against It

A person with anxiety disorders is said to suffer from feelings of terror and anxiety pertaining to the future as well as to the current situation. These feelings manifest themselves physically in forms like shakiness, and heart palpitations. Though the exact cause of the condition is still not known, risk factors associated with the condition have been identified:

  • Being female - It's said that women are twice at risk of developing anxiety disorders than men. Various factors have been found to increase this problem in women such as cultural pressures of putting all efforts in fulfilling the needs of others.
  • Family history - Your risk of developing anxiety disorders increases if one of your family members suffers from the problem. Several studies show a strong connection between the fears of the parent and that of the child. Experts also believe that a child can also learn the phobias and fears of his or her parents by observing their reaction to a specific event.
  • Type of personality - An individual's personality is also an indicator of his or her risk of suffering from anxiety disorders. Studies reveal that children who are shy and have a history of being bullied tend to develop anxiety disorders afterward. Similarly, children who worry a lot during uncertain situations are also more prone to developing anxiety disorders.
  • A history of trauma - Anxiety disorders can also be triggered by traumatic events and individuals who have a family history of the condition, a psychological makeup that makes them prone to the condition or biochemical factors are more susceptible to falling for this condition.
  • Medical conditions - Even though the cause and effect relationship between medical conditions and the disorder is yet to be ascertained, certain medical conditions can also augment one's risk for anxiety disorders. These medical conditions may be obstructive sleep apnea, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome and so on.

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

Alcohol - How It Can Induce Sleep Disorders?

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Alcohol - How It Can Induce Sleep Disorders?

Sleep disorders are often associated with substance abuse. The problems in sleep arise as a result of direct effects of a particular substance. Substance induced sleep disorders can be caused by many drugs, regardless of whether or not the substance is medically prescribed, legal or socially acceptable. It can also be caused due to alcohol abuse.

If you experience problems in sleep on not having resorted to any substance or even if you are trying to quit, it is called ‘withdrawal’. The severity of the sleep disorder depends on the type of substance used, and not much on whether or not the drug is illegal. A number of prescription as well as non-prescription drugs are capable of causing sleep disorders. However, the severity of the sleep disorders tends to vary among individuals.

Problems in sleep that can be caused due to prescription drugs such as:

  1. Hormonal drugs e.g. oral contraceptives
  2. Drugs for high blood pressure e.g. beta blockers
  3. Inhalable respiratory drugs
  4. Steroids, such as prednisone
  5. Medications for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  6. Diet pills
  7. Seizure medications
  8. Some antidepressants

Non-prescription drugs that can cause problems in sleep:

  1. Medications along with caffeine: These may include many cold and cough medications.
  2. Pseudoephedrine
  3. Illegal drugs such as cocaine, amphetamines as well as methamphetamines.
  4. Nicotine is capable of disrupting sleep and reducing the total sleep time.

Alcohol is often regarded to be a calming drug or a sedative. While alcohol is capable of inducing sleep, the quality of sleep tends to be fragmented during the second half of the sleeping period. Consumption of alcohol usually tends to increase the number of times you wake during the latter part of the sleep. This is because the relaxing effect of alcohol wears off eventually. Alcohol tends to keep you in the lighter sleep stages more and thus, is at fault of not inducing the much required deep sleep.

If you consume alcohol just before you go to bed, the sleep inducing capacity might decrease as the effects that are disruptive continue to increase. The alcohol induced sleep disorders may lead to sleepiness and fatigue during the daytime. With age, these problems tend to grow in severity. Consumption of alcohol before bedtime, among the elderly, might lead to unsteadiness while walking with a higher risk of injuries and falls. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Nicotine Addiction - Causes and Symptoms

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Nicotine Addiction - Causes and Symptoms

Nicotine addiction or tobacco addiction refers to an acute dependence upon tobacco products primarily due to the presence of the nicotine drug. In other words, nicotine addiction refers to an inability to stop using tobacco products despite the knowledge and awareness that it is harmful to you. While nicotine only induces addiction, it is the presence of other substances in tobacco which makes it damaging and injurious to health.

Nicotine has the tendency to produce effects in the brain, both physical as well as mind altering, that give temporary satisfaction. This is precisely why people get hooked into the habit of tobacco consumption, which eventually leads to addiction. Unfortunately, stopping tobacco use immediately can also lead to several withdrawal symptoms, like agitation and restlessness.

Causes
The main reason why tobacco is so addictive is due to the fact that nicotine releases neurotransmitters such as dopamine in the reward centre of the brain, which in turn improves your mood and gives you temporary pleasure.

Causes of nicotine addiction can either be physical or behavioral, for instance situations or feelings, which make you crave for tobacco. These include:

  1. Specific times during the day, say after every meal or during breaks at work
  2. While defecating
  3. While drinking alcohol
  4. Stressful or depressive situations
  5. At the sight or smell of a burning cigarette
  6. Peer pressure
  7. While driving

Symptoms
Symptoms of nicotine addiction include:

  1. You are unable to quit smoking despite frequent attempts.
  2. You experience withdrawal symptoms after attempting to quit.
  3. You continue to smoke despite the awareness that it is injurious to your health.
  4. You forego social as well as recreational activities because of your need to smoke. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Overcoming Depression

Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Overcoming Depression

Even if you try to stay happy always, at times it is hard to keep depression at bay. Being depressed can not only make you feel hopeless, less energetic and helpless, but can also adversely affect your mental and physical health. Depression may also disrupt your daily work. So, it is absolutely essential for you to overcome depression before it becomes severe and persistent.

The following ways may help you to deal with your depression in an effective manner:

As depression affects your mood, the common tendency will be to alienate or isolate yourself. But, you must realize that locking yourself up in a room and refusing to communicate with others, can never help you to overcome your depressed situation. You will feel like spending time alone, but avoid doing that and instead connect with others. Make new friends or meet up old pals. You can also spend time with your family members or try and stay connected with others through social media.

While you are depressed, you will not feel like working at all, even the things you love doing will appear to be monotonous. You will be feeling lethargic. But stay away from laziness and set new goals for yourself. Start by setting small goals for yourself that you can easily achieve. This will boost up your confidence and prevent you from feeling worthless.

The common tendency during depression is to skip meals and not getting enough sleep. Try to avoid this. Eat healthy food and try to get some sleep. Before going to bed, you may consider reading or listening to instrumental music to help you to fall asleep.

  1. Get yourself a new pet. You can engage yourself by playing with your pet or learning new ways to deal with them during your free time. This can also help you to distract yourself from the disturbing thoughts.
  2. You may also consider learning something new. You may learn a new instrument or a new language. This way you can keep yourself busy.
  3. Try to take new responsibilities or volunteer for some good cause. This will make you confident and also help you to feel good about yourself.
  4. Practice yoga or meditation. This will help you to calm down from within and stay more focused. Also, avoid negative thoughts even if they keep coming back to you.
  5. Avoid darkness for few days. Switch on the night lamp while going to bed at least for a few days. You may not feel good with the light always on and prefer darkness. But, avoid that as much as possible as this will help you to keep away your negative thoughts.
  6. Most importantly, never give up and try all possible means to make yourself happy again. It will be time consuming but avoid getting frustrated. Inspire yourself and try till you get over your depression completely.

If nothing works for you and in spite of trying everything you are still unable to get over your depression, feel free to seek help. You must visit a psychiatrist and ask for professional help.

Brain Exercises - Why You Should Do Them

Brain is just like other muscles in the body; stimulation of the brain cells on a continuous basis will lead to a well-functioning brain. In fact, exercising your brain through various brain exercises helps in forming new neural pathways inside it. Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change and adapt when it is stimulated.

The various methods you can adopt to improve your mental health are:

  • Learn a musical instrument: Start taking music classes to learn an instrument such as guitar or piano as it helps in improving mental health. It also helps in delaying age related problems such as Alzheimer's disease.
  • Do math exercises in your head: Try figuring out various mathematical sums inside your head, as this will keep your brain sharp. It has also been known to improve intelligence quotient.
  • Try to Recall Past Events: When you try to recall past events, the section of the brain dealing with memory is stimulated and thus, leads to stronger neural connections.
  • Learning a New Language: Learning a new language is good for the brain as well because it helps in delaying the process of decline of cognitive functions. Chances of being affected by mental health disorders decrease significantly.
  • Aerobic Exercises: You should follow a regular exercise regimen consisting of aerobic exercises and cardiovascular exercises as they help in improving your blood circulation. Apart from keeping you fitter and lean, it also improves your overall wellbeing.
  • Improve your Hand-eye Coordination: Do activities such as painting, knitting or solving puzzles as they help in improving your hand eye coordination. It fine tunes your motor skills and keeps you mentally sharp.
  • Cooking: Learning to cook helps in activating various parts of the brain such as sight, smell and taste. This is related to different parts of the brain resulting in an overall development.

  • Do not take more than two cup of tea. If you are taking more cups of tea there will be more anxiety, lack of sleep which will further increase your anxiety.
  • In student we see such a thing. In exam they remain awake, take excessive caffeine in the form of tea and coffee develop excessive anxiety which reduces their concentration and disturb their sleep. So we need to watch it over.
  • We need to take some exercises like cardiac exercises in reducing stress and anxiety, some yoga technique we can follow.
  • Fix your meal timings and engage in some sports activities.
  • Many people think ayurvedic and homoeopathic treatment bring a cure. So I am not denying their role in managing these things but if you are not getting benefit then switch to allopathic treatment. There is no harm in that and it brings great relief within one or two months. We have many patients who have improved like anything.

The third barrier in the treatment is stigma. People think if we are going to the psychiatrist for treatment we are mad. Actually you are not. The person who develops stress and anxiety problems actually are smarter than other person and that is why they have developed anxiety problem, that is why they are worrying and anticipating more. Whenever you will go to the treatment you will see with good doctors huge number of persons are coming for treatment. So you can rely you are not alone. Others too are seeking treatment. But what happens is nobody tells each other that we are seeking treatment. Don’t worry about stigma. Worry about your health and seek the treatment. Treatment is easily available. If you will search you will get good doctors nearby.
