You have already undergone bypass surgery and on regular drugs for prevention of further blocks. They are done so that you can live independently. Your cardiologist might have counselled you about vigorous physical activities or restrictions. Children may not be able to do much for your emotional loneliness, even if they live with you. You seem to be computer literate. Get into some group online who have undergone similar surgery and undergoing treatment like you. They will be able to motivate you and even consolel you about headache and chest pain. Consult your cardiologist again with these symptoms, either she/he may prescribe an anxiolytic or antidepressant or refer you to a psychiatrist.

Dear Shridhar, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hello, smoking is injurious to health. Smoking can have serious effects on your life. The longer you smoke, the more damage you do to your body. If you want to quit smoking then take the below treatment:- take tabacum 200, 5 drops once in a week and arnica 30 ch, 5 drops once daily. Daphne indica 1x, 2 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 1 month.

Dear lybrate user, it is very difficult to assess or diagnose with just this much information. I suggest that you see a psychiatrist or homeopathy doctor to further assess your overall condition and give you medications accordingly. 1. Besides this, please start regular exercise so that you become mentally and physically healthier. 2. You can make healthier food choices by having more fruits and vegetables, fish, eggs, proteins for optimal performance of the body and mind. Reduce junk, fried, sugary, processed and refined foods because they are linked to quick aging of the body and mind due to chemical, free radicals etc. 3. Meeting up regularly with friends, having fun and light hearted conversation help both mind and body to relax which is important for all of us. Go for long walks, picnic, outdoor activities to relax and enjoy. 4. Have a hobby of your own where you can feel creative and satisfied by the outcomes. This is very essential for anyone who feels that their life is boring and unproductive. 5. Sleeping for 6-7hours every night will repair and heal any tiredness and cellular damage to the brain. You will feel refreshed and hopeful at the beginning of each day. Going out in the sun is good for optimal brain function.

M pregnant n my hubby smokes a lot. When he comes closer to me after smoking there is suffocating & irritating feeling I doesn't feel like he come closer to me. He says he has lessened to smoking than compared to previous days but he isn't unable to quit smoking. What are the ways to quit smoking n live a healthy life?

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Counselling will help you to leave the past where it belongs and stay in the present. There is no medication to help forget the past. Your headache is also due to the stress and tension that this rumination causes. In counselling you will be able to go over your past and look at it from different point of views to help broaden your vision about it, learn from the experiences and errors and plan better for the future.

Hi, Thanks for writing in; welcome to the forum. Zapiz contains clonazepam and it can be addictive - both physically and psychologically. It is not recommended to be take for more than 4-6 weeks. What will happen eventually when you try to stop it is the original anxiety problem plus an additional problem of getting rid off addiction to zapiz. The correct treatment for an anxiety disorder is to treat it with psychotherapy alone or in combination with non-addictive medicines such as SSRIs, TCAs, atypical anti-depressants and so on. SO in your specific case, we will have to gradually reduce the zapiz and stop it. The rate of reduction will depend upon the severity of the anxiety as well as the duration for which you have taken it. In addition, based on a detailed evaluation, we will have to decide whether one of the above medicines is needed or we just manage with psychotherapy. In any case, exercise, proper sleep, yoga, meditation and breathing exercises are helpful and need to be done. So I suggest that you start these general measures if you are not already doing them and then meet a good psychiatrist in your area to sort out the medicine and therapy. You should be much better soon. Do not worry! Take care!

Dear Nisha, excessive sleep can induce a depressed feeling. On the other hand depression can cause excessive sleep in many individuals. Both scenarios may be associated with low energy, poor concentration and memory, inability to focus. Which of these scenarios is true in your case will need some careful evaluation. We will also need to know if you have had similar problems in the past, any other medicines you might be on or any other psychological problems in the family. Please get hemogram and serum TSH levels done as a bare minimum.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Hello, I am 25 year old and have stammering problem which is now causing serious psychological problems. I have lost interest in almost every thing, meeting with friends social places. I have started feeling that I would not be able to any thing in my career. When ever I do self reading it is fluent but when I speak in front of public my hands and legs start trembling heavily, my heartbeat and breathing rate heavily. Even small work seems like a heavy task for me. I don't know how would I match up in this competitive time, weather I would get any job or not. My mind is always engulfed with all these negative thoughts which is causing severe stress in me. I am skeptical about medication provided by psychologist thats why I have not consulted any doctor yet. Please help.

Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good ​Evening, Stammering is not an uncommon problems and if left untreated since childhood may cause significant health problems. I am sorry you are having to deal with the distressing situations that you have mentioned and more importantly that it has started to affect your career. Although, most of the stammering problems are related to anxiety some of them are related to organic causes in the larynx. However, since psychological issues are a greater causative factor for the problem of stammering it can be very effectively treated with psychotherapy or counseling and medications, a combination of which is better then either of them alone. I believe stammering if not treated may also lead to depression which will also improve as the stammering improves and you can lead a competitive and healthy life. I am sure you can overcome you problem with a little help. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of ​Lybrate.

I have very angry lately.Every thing seems to irritate me as a result i either shout out loud on my close ones or cry for days at a stretch. I know its a problem, but how can i help myself?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are probably carrying loads of anger from your past and as it cannot be contained any more it is coming out in outbursts. Find out what that anger is, why it was there for so long, and why you did not have permission to express it all this while. Anger in particular cannot remain suppressed for too long ? it is a pure energy feeling and wants to come out by force sooner or later. When your defenses are weakened, it will come out uncontrollably like you describe. You must attend some anger management classes. Do some Yoga meditation. Vigorous exercise will purge the energy of anger out of your system. Meet a counselor to discuss your anger and to express it too. Expressing can be done by talking, writing and sharing it, by shouting in a contracted situation etc. Weeping when you are angry is a feeling substitution and may be a sign of regret too. These outbursts of anger may soon embarrass you, if you don?t attend to it now. You can also pray and hand over the anger to God, if you are spiritual.

1. A person diagnosed with ocd, psychosis and multiple personality disorder was secretly given fludac 40 (mg) twice a day and risperidone (0.5 mg) as prescribed by the doctor (fludac for past 3 months and risperiodne for past week). Since not much effect is being seen, can risperidone dose be increased to 1 mg?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Dear thanks for asking your querry here. You concern is genuine. For psychosis the dose of risperidone is less. But the dose of fludac for ocd is ok. I am not aware about current psychotic symptoms of your brother. If still he has delusion or hallucoinations, you may ask for a review by his psychiatrist who may consider increasing the dose of risperidone.

I have been noticing that I feel blue a lot. I hardly ever feel happy. I'm a student entering final year and will be looking for jobs and I'm worried this may affect me badly. I'm losing interest in pretty much everything that I loved to do before, have no hobbies as of now and want to be alone most of the time. Other than that, I also feel lonely sometimes but do not like opening up to anyone and sound like a wimp. I try distracting myself but it feels very temporary. I'm low on self esteem and irritable/sleepy/disoriented most of the time. All this is becoming overbearing and I do not wish to consult anyone whatsoever since I cannot afford to consult someone right now. I hear people telling me to be "happy" and that I should be meditating and stuff but I'm just not interested, infact it pisses me off even more. Please advise. Thank you.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are corect. Many people advise you to be happy. But preaching is easier than practicing. In ths initial stages of life, you need to engage in creative activities and games to be happy. In later stages of life, you will learn to be happy without any tools. For now I suggest go out, play and entertain yourself. I also suggest personality development. Take care.

My mother put a thing and after some time, She forget that where does she put the thing. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your mother could be under a lot of stress and that is why she is forgetting little things. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if she goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else she is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that her 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect her memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. See how many of these exercises she can incorporate in her daily life and if the problem persists let her meet with a counselor to deal with the stress.
