Please understand that If the holter shows a 2.5 sec pause in normal sinus rhythm it means that his normal conduction system is not working properly or he was on some heart rate controlling drug like beta blockers, if he was not on any such medication then his normal pacemaker is faulty. This pause means that for 2.5 sec his heart stops beating due to lack of current, this is a significant duration and it can cause fainting episodes and lead to fall and injuries, then that is an indication of pacemaker. I have not seen the holter of your father so I do not know if this pause is in nornmal rhythm or in AF (atrial fibrillation), in case this pause is in AF rhythm then we will need to evaluate him before deciding need for pacemaker. Before pacemaker and angiography should also be done. Hypertension and anxiety are not a contraindication to put an holter. If the conduction system becomes faulty then it can only be treated by a pacemaker, no medication can reverse this problem.

I am a self harmer and today was the deepest laceration I've ever done. I cut through to the fat layer and the blood had an oily film floating on top. I'm just a little concerned, I've never seen blood like it.

Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. 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. Take care.

I want to concentrate my mind on one thing. But I m unable. How can I concentrate mind?

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes at your age can also affect your thinking and concentration capabilities for some time. However if you are suffering from an excessive degree of concentration problem then you should consult an expert. There are certain psychological conditions that cause concentration problems too, like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), bipolar disorder (bpd).

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.


Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.


Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.


Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

Hi I regularly chew tobbaco. I want to quit this habit. But I fear that if I quit suddenly I may get health problem. Please guide me.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Quitting tobacco is easy if you take help. No health issues will happen if you stop suddenly, but there will be withdrawal symptoms which will be troublesome for 2- 3weeks. You can try nicotine gums to relive the withdrawal symptoms. Consult me in private so that I can help you further.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Negative thoughts arise out of lack of self esteem and self confidence. This arise out of exam related tension and stress. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

Sir, I am suffering from tubercular lymphadenitis. I prepare for upsc and other exams, try hard but cannot clear any exam due to fear of exam itself. As exam comes, I am afraid of it and think of giving up and trying next year. Three years passed by. Now there are three incidents I would like to share with you. 1) I had very unusual fear of contracting an std and swelling up my lymph nodes and I always make sure that I do not drink from anyone else's glass or wash hands constantly. In mid feb when I first saw my lymph node swell, I was terrified to death that same day. I thought why I swelled my lymph node which happens in hiv. Before even consulting the doctor, I started over thinking and taking hiv tests and all. The tests were negative. Still I was afraid. I started google searching day and night. One month I wasted in doing all this and then when I visited doctor, he said I need to do FNAC to see if malignancy was present. I started to panic again. My head started paining and I got panicking. I was stressed so much. Then finally after some days with some courage, I did biopsy and was diagnosed with tuberculosis. 2) I was searching for a good lipstick online. I was searching some websites for lipstick on my phone. This colour or that colour, this brand or that brand. It was so obsessed that for 3 months my whole focus was on getting good lipsticks. I felt light headed and lucid dreams about lipsticks and I had overdone it. I got anxiety and some lightheadedness in my head, like floating. Even I could not see clearly. Yesterday I checked and got spectacles but I feel bad in my head even after putting specs. I was so obsessed with lipstick that all I could see were lipsticks and compulsion in buying them. 3) Recently, we shifted to another home. The earlier home, I just loved. It was near to market and was quiet busy place. Everyone there was friendly. Here in manish nagar, everywhere we have open spaces, no people around. All day I stay alone at home. I do not go anywhere. I stay at home all the time. My parents took my vehicle and do not let me go anywhere. I miss the old home to the point that I am so stressed. I gave up on upsc also. Now I am directionless, no job, nothing to do. My parents want me to clear big exams but I feel confused which way. I feel like I am floating directionless, in my head, it feels so bad. Even neck pains and lymph nodes pain. I dunno what but I feel different. I done if it is due to tuberculosis in my brain or lymph nodes that makes my head feel so bad or just stress and anxiety. Head crown feels stiff, neck feels stiff. Doctors say that you take AKT 4 and we will see. Wait for some time. But I feel like going to my old home now. All day I keep planning and roaming here and there thinking thinking thinking.

I have habit to smoking I want to stop it but when I try to stop to smoking then I am able to let go for 3-4 days but after that I have to smoke because my mind not work. So what can I do for this.

Failure is a feature of this particular addiction but never give up. Everybody has gone through this again and again. It is therefore a wise decision to quit as early as possible and minimize the harm. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. But try and try again until you succeed. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
