Dear friend Sorry to hear about your loss. It is a difficult time. Although grief is a condition everyone must endure, it is important not to let grief dominate your life, and in essence, become your life. Talk about your loss with friends, family or a professional. Indulge in uplifting activities: These activities may be as soteric as studying philosophy or as centering as planting a tree.  Sometimes just walking through a garden can be uplifting.  Meditation, centering Prayer and stress reduction techniques. These can help to control stress and allow one to find a deeper state of awareness or relaxation. Meditation and Prayer may assist in one’s spiritual development by clearing the mind of the day to day stress. Avoid stressful situations and decisions. This is important especially in the initial stages of grief when people are not always exercising their best judgment. Physical exercise. This is an excellent way to “take the edge” off the physical symptoms of grief. Studies show that physical exercise releases endorphins into the body which can alleviate stress and mental anxiety. Do daily morning walk for 20 minutes. Think. Would your loved one be happy to see you in this state? Do what he would have wanted you to do to be happy. Get help for severe or persistent depression. Someone once said: “grief is not a disease but it can become one.” Grief can lead to serious depression. Consider getting professional help if you feel overwhelmed, hopeless, or helpless. Other signs of depression can include sleep impairment (too little or too much), appetite or weight change, low energy, difficulty concentrating, and feeling listless or agitated. Take care of yourself. Remember open up, talk, help is just a call away. Have faith and patience. God bless you!

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

The heart rate of 250 bpm indicates a ventricular tachycardia and more probably a fibrillation and you need cardiac evaluation.

If you do not have erections when you want to, in spite of having normal hormone levels, then that is definitely due to stress and anxiety. Anxiety is always an unseen problem which affects sexual performances. Once you treat anxiety like any other body illness you definitely perform better. A psychiatrist can help you get rid of anxiety with help go sexual counseling, medications and behavior therapy.

Hi last few days I am feeling a bit more nervous and restless in the morning. As day progresses, it eases off a bit. I am constantly thinking about death. What could be reason for it?

Hi last few days I am feeling a bit more nervous and restless in the morning. As day progresses, it eases off a bit. ...
There are two possibilities: if you are waking up nervous and restless, then the influences of dreams and the unconscious mind’s persuasions could be the cause; and if you get up and then feel this experience, then it is possible that the fear of facing the day, even if there was nothing to worry about, could be the culprit. In both these instances survival level fear and some insecurity could be behind the experience. Death could then be an escape from facing these major fears. Sunlight is fortunately an equalizer by the effect of light itself on the human being as an amazingly stimulating power, and as you move around getting into your chores, the energy levels spike and the biorhythm (which has three areas of influence: climbing energy levels, mood levels and metabolic rate) rises up to peak at 11 am. By this time I guess the fear subsides, primarily by the influence of daylight and sunlight. If all this I say is true, even remotely, meet with a counselor and explore the survival level fear and deal with it effectively. You should be well free of this disturbance. The morning effect is to be seen as a revelation from your system to draw your attention towards something really important that needs consideration.

My friend suffering from alcoholism he tried to everything stop drinking but he can't.

MD - Psychiatry

Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Do not panic or think too much into this. Anthropophobia or Anthrophobia literally "fear of humans" called interpersonal relation phobia or social phobia, is pathological fear of people or human company. Anthropophobia is an extreme, pathological form of shyness and timidity. You could have social aversion or social anxiety. This condition can be treated just with the help of counseling and psychotherapy online. Do not panic. Take care.

You do onto become thin from masturbation, actually. Sleep will be induced because you will be exhausted and also because the relaxation effect after the deed will make you sleepy and drowsy. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it are to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age, you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises or even hobbies to channelize it. Also, you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Health anxiety is not a serious mental disorder but without proper treatment the person affected could be depressed and continuously engaged in negative thoughts.

Hello Doctors, I am writing this on behalf of my friend. He is addicted to drink alcohol from last couple of years and still continuing frequently. Moreover, he is mentally and physically fit and a blood done too. How it would it affects him in his coming future and what are your suggestions over this?

Hello Doctors,

 I am writing this on behalf of my friend. He is addicted to drink alcohol from last couple of years ...
Being fit is always very good for health. But an alcoholic is an alcoholic and in time many organs will be affected even though he may not see any signs now. Apart from his health he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with his wife and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

Tips to Manage Chronic Pain

MD - Anaesthesiology
Anesthesiologist, Delhi

Hi friends, my name is Dr Umesh Deshmukh. I’m a consultant in anaesthesia and pain management. Today I’ll be speaking on chronic pain because this topic is very close to my heart. I also suffered from chronic pain.

Chronic pain is a condition shared by many of us including myself. It can be caused by joint disease, arthritis, migraine, fibromyalgia, bad back and cervical spondylitis, excessive weight gain. The important thing to note is that chronic pain whatever the cause, hangs on for weeks or months or even years and decades together. It wrecks your life and lifestyle, it changes you from inside. So as it is said that God helps only those who help themselves. So there are certain things that we must do to alleviate the pain apart from what a doctor can give to us.

  • First is walking. Walking is one of the best things we can do to alleviate pain. You must start slowly with slow increments in your walking time every day.
  • Acupuncture is one of the modalities of pain therapy that has been neglected over a long period of time. But acupuncture is very effective in chronic pain and it if possible consult a good acupuncturist to treat your chronic pain because acupuncture increases the natural pain killing hormones known as endorphins in your body.
  • Other important thing is to get your mind off from whatever work etc. you do. You must take periodic breaks from your works. You could do something to distract yourself like reading a book or probably singing a song. Having a conversation with your friend something like that you can do, it takes your mind off from pain and distraction is the most important thing to treat chronic pain.
  • Other important aspect is a change in diet and managing your weight. You must reduce your excess weight by performing certain diet changes in which the dietician can advise you what to do.

As far as treatment is concerned to consult a pain expert. There are pain specialists available in metros and big cities and big hospitals. Nowadays, there is even available on a part time basis. You can also consult them through Lybrate.

Some of these pain specialists like me, are also experts in interventions of various kinds especially in dealing with pain back or spine problems and joint problems. These interventions may constitute simple injections for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The pain controlling device in plantations in your spinal cord and also doing surgeries like spine surgeries joint replacements etc. These certain things can be treated by pain specialists and some of them can be treated only by surgeons but the pain specialists can advise you when to go in for a surgery.

So friends, if there is any way that I can help you as a pain specialist. I am available on Lybrate. You can text me or you can send an email to me or you can call me in person so I can devise a plan to help with your pain.

Hello. Thanks for the query. Simple answer yes; you can win over anxiety & panic attacks without medications also! but the caveat is its a long & tedious process of special counselling called as behavior therapy or cognitive behavior therapy (cbt). Its similar to reaching a place by bus versus reaching a place with a bullock-cart! so, if you wish to change medications (escit plus) only because of reduced sex drive, low energy etc. There are better medications available with less side effects too. Think over it & revert back if you need counselling advice or medications. Good luck.

Your symptoms show anxiety. Please talk to a counsellor. You need to identify what all is going on in your mind and is hampering your routine life. The counsellor will help you in identifying your issues and also will help you to cope with it. Shaking legs is a reflexive action for anxiety. Whenever you notice, that you are shaking your legs, make a conscious effort to stop it. Keep a book or something on you lap, so the moment you start shaking your legs it will fall, and you will be aware of it and then make conscious effort to stop it. About the habit of" day dreaming" and sleeslessness, behaviour therapy will help you. Kindly talk to a counsellor.
