Dear, paranoid schizophrenia also called schizophrenia, paranoid type is a sub-type of schizophrenia. The clinical picture is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

I'm 21 year old. I'm having problem of headache normally during studies or watching anything. What should I do?. I take a stress alot too.

Do a deep breathing exercise. Deep breathing can help you relax and reduce any stress in your body, including your head. Take slow, even breaths and try to relax. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Exhale slowly, relaxing any areas in your body that feel tight. Picture a beautiful scene, like a sandy beach, a bright sunny garden, or a country road. Drop your chin toward your chest. Slowly rotate your head in a half circle from side to side. Take another deep breath and exhale slowly. Continue picturing the beautiful scene in your head. Repeat this exercise until you are in a state of relaxation.

Is that Wd symp or suddenly stopped increase my symptoms if yes how many it will be there in my body so that I will start my Ayurvedic sessions?

First of all do not stop any medicines abruptly because doing so will cause rebound of symptoms .First and foremost change your diet and lifestyle .Ayurveda might not be the right choice. You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms .The cause for your anxiety needs to be explored stop dairy and caffeine excess. No animal products. Go on a whole food plant based diet. Need to take a detailed history both dietary and medical. This problem can be reversed with diet and life style changes. I am a lifestyle Physician and wellness Dr. take a consult from me if you want proper advice and be healthy without medications or minimal medications.

She needs to learn everything through speech and language therapy, special education and may be she needs occupational therapy. Through intensive training she can Learn and live like normal people although not hundred percent normal but near to that life. But can't say anything clear without seeing her. This is only on the base of condition you explained. Therapies will go for a long time and leave good results. If you are from Delhi.You can show her to me.

Good evening sir my elder brother aged about 30 years is very normal friendly happy etc and he stays at home only but when he consumes a one single peg of alcohol he just goes out and stoles mobile phones or beg money at bars and wines because of this we being having good respect in the society unable to digest this and we are pleased to beat him or scold him badly sir by doing this we do not know whether its correct or not so please suggest us to do things which can take my brother on the right track.

Dear lybrate-user, Your brother might be having hypomanic episodes as during this episode, symptom like alcohol use, over cheerfulness, increase physical activity, increase speech etc. Many times these episode are very short lasting like for few days only. This could be a part of bipolar affective disorder. I would recommend you to consult psychiatrist and get him evaluated. Good and effective treatment are available for his condition. All d best!

Iam suffering from anxiety and panic attack. E. Agoraphobia kindly suggest me what to do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi Agoraphobia treatment usually includes both psychotherapy and medication. It may take some time, but treatment can help you get better. Psychotherapy Also known as talk therapy or psychological counseling, psychotherapy involves working with a therapist to reduce your anxiety symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy for anxiety disorders, including agoraphobia. Generally a short-term treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on teaching you specific skills to gradually return to the activities you've avoided because of anxiety. Through this process, your symptoms improve as you build upon your initial success. You can learn: That your fears are unlikely to come true That your anxiety gradually decreases if you remain in public and you can manage those symptoms until they do What factors may trigger a panic attack or panic-like symptoms and what makes them worse How to cope with these symptoms How to change unwanted or unhealthy behaviors through desensitization, also called exposure therapy, to safely face the places and situations that cause fear and anxiety. You can also take these steps to cope and care for yourself when you have agoraphobia: Stick to your treatment plan. Take medications as directed. Keep therapy appointments. Consistency can make a big difference, especially when it comes to taking your medication. Try not to avoid feared situations. It's hard to go to places or be in situations that make you uncomfortable or that bring on symptoms of anxiety. But practicing going to more and more places can make them less frightening and anxiety provoking. Family, friends and your therapist can help you work on this. Learn calming skills. Working with your health care professional, you can learn how to calm and soothe yourself. You can practice these skills on your own, especially at the first hint of anxiety. Practice relaxation techniques. Meditation, yoga and imagery are simple relaxation techniques that may help — and you can do them in the comfort of your own home. Practice these techniques when you aren't anxious or worried, and then put them into action during stressful situations. Avoid alcohol and illegal drugs. These substances can worsen your panic or anxiety symptoms. Take care of yourself. Get enough sleep, be physically active every day, and eat a healthy diet, including lots of vegetables and fruits. Consult me for any query.

Hi , first of all stop thinking too much. Focus on your present, Live your Present then only you will be able to mold and make your future healthy and wealthy. First of all try to over come from your anxiety or depression. What is bothering you so much? Before advising you for anything I need to know a lot. For that you can contact me through VIdeo, Audio Call or you can discuss online. Meanwhile: Try to divert your mind, Focus on other useful things. The more you will think, The more you will feel. Please Practice deep breathing. Make a schedule and whenever you feel above mentioned problem please practice deep breathing. Eat Healthy. Don't skip your meals. Say a big NO to coffee. And Keep SMILING :)

I lost someone last year and I am in depression. You will give me some idea for relief depression.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hi, Yesterday I was having my BMLT 2nd year biochem exam. I was completely prepared. My preparation was so good that I was thinking which question to leave as a choice bcoz I knew all of them. But a disaster happened I was unable to finish off on time due to which almost 2 long answer were left. Losing 20 marks. I'm completely disturbed. After this now I'm not able to study for the next exam bcos this was the subject in which I knew everything from every point. And it all has wasted. please suggest some way to manage time during exam. I have lost my confidence. When the best prepared subject has finished in a disaster then the other one are so hard. I can't get myself out of it. Everyone finished it on time then why can't I. please suggest the way to manage my time in exam. Please.

Exam is actually a test of time rather than only knowledge. While writing exam you need to a lot certain time for certain questions. For example in case of exam with 5 main questions with allotted 3 hours you cannot afford to spend more than 30-40 minutes on one question or you won't find time for rest of the questions, even if you know them in details. Also wile writing exam you have to be stable enough to manage time and put all that you know in required space and time only. If you feel uncontrolled anxiety worrying you for future exams, try some relaxation exercises.

Hi. Thank you for sharing your concern. You are feeling hurt and upset over how your wife is behaving. If she's been diagnosed for OCD then im wondering if she is under treatment. Ocd requires medical as well as psychological intervention. You will have to have immense patience and perseverence to help your wife handle her issue. Please consult a psychiatrist and keep her under counselling therapy ,if not doing currently. You may also require counselling support for yourself so that you have a place to vent out and figure out how to deal with the issue at hand. With a gentle handle holding you will be able to take care of the situation. All the best.
