I have been feeling a slight tension on the left temple for the past 1 month. There is also a pinch that I feel on the top left of my head and lasts for 2-3 seconds. I have a pretty packed lifestyle leaving very little time to unwind. Although it is stressful, I have been able to keep it cool by exercising occasionally. What are these symptoms pointing to? Should I consult a neurologist?

Dear user. I can understand. With today's lifestyle, it is almost impossible to avoid STRESS. Each person experiences stress in a different way and can tolerate different levels of stress. For some work is a source of stress while for others it could be strained relationships or financial trouble. 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. There is nothing to worry much about stress because stress is part of your body's defense mechanism. Stress is essential too. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. 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 tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hi, I am 30 years old, got married 3.8 years back. Within 4 months of our marriage, we met with accident where my wife seriously injured with bone broken. She was operated with rod and plate in the leg. Since then I feel like much depressed, more pain below knee backside, fatigue, can not able to concentrate on things. Very urge for Sex, but couldn't make intercourse due to leg pain and no erection for long time. So tried for masturbation, but not felt better after that also. Please suggest what disease I have or what I have to do stay pain free and happy.

Actually, there are a few aspects to this situation. Firstly, a kind of guilt often operates in conscious/ subconscious mind after this kind of accidents especially where there are significant difference in the damage suffered by the victims. This guilt often gives rise to anxiety which in turn manifests in various bodily symptoms. Next, if you can attain erection during masturbation then no damage presumed to your genital. Your problem to attain erection during intercourse could be addressed during treatment. But if you have problem in having erection even during masturbation then you need to see Urologist first. As such you need to consult Psychiatrist, preferably along with your spouse. You need treatment both in form of medicine and behavioural intervention.

heel pain and treatment

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)

heel pain and treatment
Heel pain?
Heel pain is a very common foot complaint and may involve injury to the bone, fat pad, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Heel pain can also be referred by a pinched nerve in your lower back.

It is important to have your heel pain thoroughly assessed to ensure an accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

Anyone can suffer from heel pain, but certain groups seem to be at increased risk, including:

Middle aged men and women
Active people eg running sports
People who are very overweight
Children aged between 8 and 13 years
Pregnant women
People who stand for long periods of time.
Common sources of heel pain
Achilles tendon rupture
Achilles tendonitis / tendinitis
Fibromyalgia
Heel spur
High ankle sprain
Lupus
Muscle strain (muscle pain)
Overuse injuries
Peroneal tendonitis
Pinched nerve
Plantar fasciitis
Psoriatic arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Severs disease
Shin splints
Sprained ankle
Stress fracture feet
Common causes of heel pain?
Some of the many causes of heel pain can include:

Abnormal walking style (such as rolling the feet inwards)
Obesity
Ill-fitting shoes eg narrow toe, worn out shoes
Standing, running or jumping on hard surfaces
Recent changes in exercise program
Heel trauma eg. Stress fractures
Bursitis (inflammation of a bursa)
Health disorders, including diabetes and arthritis.
Heel pain treatment
Most heel pain is caused by a combination of poor biomechanics, or muscle weakness or tightness. The good news is that heel pain can be effectively managed once the cause is identified.

Most heel pain can be successfully treated via:

Pain and pressure relief techniques
Biomechanical correction eg orthotics, taping, foot posture exercises
Muscle stretches and massage
Lower limb muscle strengthening
Proprioceptive and balance exercises to stimulate your foot intrinsic muscles.
If you feel that your footwear or sports training schedule are potentially causing your heel pain, then we recommend that you seek the advice of a sports physiotherapist, podiatrist or trained footwear specialist (not just a shop assistant) to see if your shoe is a match for your foot; or discuss your training regime to see if you are doing too much.

Heel pain and injury are extremely common. With accurate assessment and early treatment most heel pain injuries respond extremely quickly to physiotherapy allowing you to quickly resume pain-free and normal activities of daily living.

Please ask you physiotherapist for their professional treatment advice.

Mu friend want to left tobacco, he had this habit from last 5 years, when he tries to control this, his health become down and he feels unconscious and sleep. please tell whats the alternate for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
These are all withdrawal symptoms and he must go through these reactions but still adhere to the abstinence. If you admit him in one of the naturopathy institutes, he will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help him to quit. Do not take him out for at least one month or more. When he comes back keep him under vigil and monitor him so that neither he nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for him. He may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let him indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put him on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to his system. If he is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to him. He can be coaxed to maintain his abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make him do meditation; make him stick to a regular schedule of activities, have him involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate him about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

Hi it seems you are spending more time worrying about your future and worrying about the lack of sleep rather than trying to work on what you should do now. You also seem to be lacking goals and plans. So better start working on planning what you should do now and how you should spend your available time usefully. This will make even your lack of sleep a boon because it will provide you more time for you to work and complete the tasks which you intend to complete. If you have difficulty in doing this the consult a clinical psychologist in your vicinity.

I feel nervous for first few seconds when I perform something infront of people. Am I sociophobic.
Absolutely normal. The fear of public speaking is the number one fear for everyone including seasoned speakers. The first 90 seconds are when we experience the greatest stress where even your heart beat increases to double i. E. 144 beats. To overcome this effect prepare a fabulous starting sentence and you would have utilized that 90 second window very productively. Secondly, we tend to become afraid of people abut their judgement of you and your performance. The best way to counter that it to speak on only what you know. If you attempt to venture into areas of dubious information, you will be in deep waters.

Technology - Is It a Boon or Bane For Your Love Life?

Technology - Is It a Boon or Bane For Your Love Life?

Technology may be a boon for your love life as due to technology a number of means of communication have evolved, which keep you connected with your loved one in the form of devices, software and applications. However, in spite of its benefits, they are plenty of things that come with technology, which can completeely ruin your love life. Here are some signs that technology may be creating trouble in your paradise:

  1. You may waste your time checking photos of ex-girlfriends and love interests. You may check out a picture of an ex on her Facebook profile and wonder about a new guy present in the picture. The same may happen with a present lover. These activities create unnecessary complications in your mind which may harm your relationship with your partner.
  2. You end up spending more time with your smartphone than with your partner. This may affect your relationship, as you are too engrossed with checking social media websites and posting updates instead of paying attention to your partner, who is right by your side.
  3. Sexting is a common trend in today's world where the exchanging of nude photos between a couple takes place via messengers and chatting platforms. This can be worrisome as you may always be concerned about your pictures getting leaked or exposed.
  4. You may become technologically clingy. Your partner may have texted you, and you have not been able to reply in spite of reading the text. Modern technology enables a person to see when you have read their message and when there is no response, the speculations creep in. These situation lead to host of other problems.
  5. It is easy to lie about something online or via texting than saying it face to face. Technology allows you to lie and make untrue statements, which are not true in real life. This creates dishonesty within a relationship.
  6. With technology, you have too many options at hand and this makes situations difficult. In case you want to go for a dinner with your partner, you might spend hours searching for a good restaurant by going through the ratings online.
  7. You may spend a lot of time deciphering text messages. Modern day texting is full of abbreviations, short forms and emoticons. Some of these may make you over think stuff, and you may try to decipher meanings from normal texts, which actually have no twisted meaning.
  8. With so many forms of social media, you may be confused about what to use at which stage or phase. You may think whether you should text first, should you add an interest on Facebook and should you comment on a picture. All this creates confusion and honestly there is no real conversation between you and your partner.

There is no doubt that modern technology has taken the level of communication to a new level. Technology plays significant role in keeping in touch with your friends and loved ones sitting thousands of miles away by bringing them close. But it is high time that you realize that technology is something that has driving you away from your loved one. Make an attempt to have some personal conversations without your phones, laptops and tablets. Watch a movie, go on long drives or late night walks and reignite the love and passion in your relationships. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Dear gad is common and almost everyone has gad. Let me tell you something. Anxiety cannot be cured because it is body's defense mechanism. Anxiety becomes a disorder when you obsess with it or fear it. You will need psychotherapy, meditation and life style change. Please post a private question to me with all the details. Take care.

You are probably suffering from double depression based on what you have written. However a detailed evaluation is required to confidently confirm the diagnosis. I suggest you meet a psychiatrist near you. Many effective treatments are available for your problem. If treatment is started early improvement is faster and better.

I am 18 years old. I am not able to learn my syllabus or un able to study. please tell me some tips to help me to overcome this problem.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Mr, now in this age, the reason for unable to focus on studies might be due to any deviations, attractions, which is common in this age, or any family issues, or any lack of interest in subjects, or not able to nderstand the concept. If you r aware of any of these, then, its in your hands, to avoid thinking abt those issues, taking any assistance from friends/lecturers who can help you better in explaining, or go to group studies. Practice pranayama/meditation daily morning/evening or night, to avoid stress, & to improve concentration over studies. If you feel that you r getting more strained by studying, try to take break, get engaged in any other your interested games/hobbies/activities like reading other books, listening sngs, chatting with friends, family members etc, t get relaxed & then again you go t study again. ** try to take brahmi lehyam[ayurveda-1 spoonful]] or, aswagandha mother tincture [homeo. 15-20 drops in 1/4th cup of luke or normal water]daily twice m/n to imrove memory.

I want to improve my physic bt I dnt have time in the morning and had a habit of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to create time in the morning by waking up early or skipping whatever else you are doing and fit in the exercise regimen. If you exercise in the morning, you feed into the biorhythm and will find your entire day cheerful and fruitful. Regarding smoking please follow these instructions meticulously: When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. 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. 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 and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 gums and 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.

I am having severe mood swings problem. Sometime too happy, sometimes too irritated, sometimes feel like kill myself ...
You need to rush to meet with a counselor first and then perhaps on that person’s recommendation you may have to meet with a psychiatrist. The earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis. All the symptoms and the mood swings are not sounding too good. I also suggest that you take your parents with you. They will be able to throw some insight into your developmental history to come to some understanding of your condition. Life is very precious and your condition will prompt these type of feelings and reactions. Do not encourage those thoughts and when you meet with the counselor you must make mention of your violence towards yourself and others. God forbid that it should become an impulse and a precious life may become lost. Please get actively involved in vigorous exercise, have a healthy diet, and make sure that you get at least 8 hours of sleep every day. Whatever you do, always remember to be responsible, to be respectful, and to be functional. Pray to god regularly and learn to love yourself, if nobody else does. Please cooperate with both the therapies until you have fully recovered. A neglected condition can get so bad that you will not be in a position to judge for yourself and then others may have to make decisions for you, forever!
