"Bipolar disorder" can be vanished totally or not? I am taking medicine from very long period of time.

"Bipolar disorder" can be vanished totally or not? I am taking medicine from very long period of time.
Yes, you can come out of this condition. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. You must comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

Hello dear lybrate-user, Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Cost varies according to the center and the surgeon, but approximately more than Rs. 80,000 * Safety has to be concluded from anesthesia, surgery point depending upon the reports. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.

It's been 6 months that I have suffered from depression. This is my second episode. I was well for around for a week recently. But from past 3 days I am experiencing severe symptoms of depression. I am a medical student. I want to know if I am able to return to normal mood and do my studies. My exams coming up in 2 months. I am thinking of dying today. My maternal uncle and paternal auntil and grandmother committed su cider because of psychiatric illness. I need professional advice and want to know if I can continue my studies or should I quit it.

There's no need to quit your studies. Even if people in your family have committed suicide it doesn't mean that you have to too. There are many members in your family who are alive and working and facing the problems of their life bravely. You must see a psychiatrist and counsellor for your depression and continue to take medications for a long time as it looks like genetic in your case. Counselling will help you to learn to challenge some of your outdated beliefs and help you to regain hope, worthiness and focus on your strengths to build up your self image. Counselling too needs to be long term. Cbt will be very useful for you along with mindfulness meditation. Please look into your diet as diet plays a vital role in mental health problems. Exercise regularly within your capacity and sun yourself everyday as vit d is usually less in depression patients. Sleep well for 7-8 hrs every night. Removing distractions and add music etc which is conducive to sleep. Keep up with your social life and look at life objectively and humor. Keep company of happy and progressive people who like to solve problems actively. Homeopathy and ayurveda also have excellent remedies for depression and associated symptoms.

Four Types Of Bipolar Disorder!

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Four Types Of Bipolar Disorder!

We all have mood swings but not all mood swings have the same intensity. People who have extreme mood swings ranging from depression to manic highs are said to be suffering from bipolar disorder. These extreme moods are known as episodes and usually, last for a few days or even a few weeks. A person suffering from bipolar disorder could have an episode several times a year. This is a very common psychological problem and can affect both children and adults. Though it cannot be cured, this disease can be managed with medication.

There are no known causes for bipolar disorder but genetics may play an important role in triggering Bipolar Disorder. Hence, if a parent or sibling suffers from this condition, you have a risk of developing it as well. An imbalance in the neurotransmitters in the brain may also play a part in the development of this condition. Stress or traumatic events like the loss of a loved one can also increase your risk of suffering from this condition. Given that mood swings affect almost each one of us, bipolar disorder can be difficult to diagnose. Some of the things to look out for are:

  1. Change in self-esteem
  2. Unusual talkativeness or quietness
  3. Being increasingly prone to distractions
  4. Decreased need for sleep
  5. Agitation
  6. Recklessness in terms of spending decisions, relationships etc

It must be kept in mind that a person must display at least 4 of the above symptoms simultaneously to be diagnosed as bipolar. Also, none of these symptoms should be a result or side effect of any kind of medication, drugs, alcohol or other intoxicants.

There are four main types of bipolar disorder:

  1. Bipolar I: In such cases, the person has at least one episode of elevated moods and associated abnormal behaviour in his or her life. This may be preceded or followed by depressive episodes.
  2. Bipolar II: In these cases, the person must have suffered from at least one depressive episode. It is very similar to bipolar I except that in bipolar II the highs never reach the manic stage.
  3. Rapid Cycling: Some people can have 4 or more manic and depressive episodes a year. In such cases, they are said to be rapid cycling. This condition affects 10-20% of bipolar cases.
  4. Mixed Bipolar: Usually, bipolar patients show mood swings that alternate between manic and depressive moods. However, sometimes a person may experience both elation and depression simultaneously or in rapid succession of each other. These cases are known as mixed bipolar.

Once diagnosed, bipolar disorder can be managed with a combination of medication and psychotherapy. In some cases, electroconvulsive therapy may also be needed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Aftr gaining much weights ma boyfriend started to avoid me. M vry much depress. please help.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Aftr gaining much weights ma boyfriend started to avoid me. M vry much depress. please help.
Hello, it's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! but would advise you that if your boy friend gets attracted towards you on your physical presentation then better not to go along with him as he doesn't love you, it's more of physical attraction only! when a person really loves you, he loves you as a person, he loves you the way you look, he loves you with your all odd and even! that's the genuine love which comes from the heart and ready to sacrifice many things for you. So, dear I am making you aware, be careful! go through the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: management: 1: drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: enjoy your favorite foods. 4: have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous). Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. Preferably brisk walking, swimming, cycling, skipping. 6: eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: don't skip meals. When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. 13: go for a health walk. Gear up yourself daily for a health walk which not only shed off your extra calorie, but also reduces the stress levels. 14: take small frequent breaks for a quick walk in between as sitting for long hours together encourages the accumulation of fat in the body! medication: start taking schwabe's phytolacca berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 3 months. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best! weight red.

Feeling Overwhelmed? Best Ways To Help You Manage It!

Feeling Overwhelmed? Best Ways To Help You Manage It!

Sometimes when a person has too much on their plate, they are left feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. Here are a few ways in which you can manage being overwhelmed and return to a place of control, contentment and relaxation.

  1. Venture out: Trying to work and get your tasks done despite your confusion and feeling of helplessness will not lead you anywhere. You need to step away to have the capacity to see your conditions from a new point of view. Move to an alternate room, get up from your work area, sit on a different couch, go out for a walk or go sit at a bistro. Venturing out from the present circumstance and changing your physical surroundings will help you gain clarity, and move you far from the overwhelming perspective. This is when you can see the solution more clearly.
  2. Vent it out: When you are occupied, it is very easy to lose any feeling and sense of priority and the panic makes everything seem urgent. In reality, there will be things that may require your consideration for a brief span. Hence, the key thing is to have clarity and gain visibility on what you are managing. Attempt a "mind download", where you record everything, with the goal that you can figure out what is obstructing your brain and its functioning.
  3. Requesting help and allowing help: You would be surprised at what number of individuals will offer assistance. Usually, our limited thinking is because we become a problem for ourselves as we disallow others to help us. Sometimes we also think they will say no, thus we do not ask for help. Simply try it out. Request help, and get ready to be surprised at the generosity you might get from others.
  4. Phase out noise: When we feel overwhelmed, it feels soothing to do something to loosen up and relax, such as watching the TV, listening to music, watching the news or playing a game. What we overlook during this time is that the additional data that comes in clutters our mind that further tangles our already overwhelmed senses.
  5. Make continuous improvements: Concentrate on one area at a time. Question yourself: what kind of change would be good for you? Concentrate on little, easy-to-do portions, not an instant upgrade. Say, your employment. Experiment with ten minutes of a sustaining pace. Appreciate how that feels. At that point expand on it. Check whether your well being moves forward. Try to feel positive energy in the bargain.

Treat the sentiment of overwhelming nervousness as a companion, for it is an indicator telling us that we have to slow down. It tells us to readjust our centre of focus and prioritise something else that makes us feel positive and better.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Depression in Children!

Depression in Children!

What is Depression?

Depression can strike a child at any age. A mood disorder, depression is characterized by a persistent sad or empty feeling, irritability, and a loss of interest in everyday activities. Unlike normal sadness or grieving, most bouts of depression last for weeks, months, or even years. A smaller number of children and adolescent suffer from biploar disorder-bouts of depression interspersed with periods of elevated (manic) mood (bipolar disorder).

Although depression is usually not considered life-threatening, it can lead to thoughts of and attempts at suicide.

Symptoms

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, apathy, or hopelessness lasting more than two weeks.

  • Diminished interest in most daily activities, particularly pleasurable ones.

  • Decreased appetite and subsequent weight loss; increased appetite and weight gain.

  • Lack of sleep (insomnia), frequent awakening throughout the night, or conversely, an increased need for sleep.

  • Anxiety; diminished ability to think or concentrate.

Diagnosis

Because there are no reliable laboratory tests to diagnose depression, physical examination and psychological evaluation are essential.

  • Expression of either of the first two symptoms of depression (see Symptoms box), in conjunction with other symptoms, for a period of two or more consecutive weeks.

  • A positive family history of depression or a prior depressive episode helps establish the diagnosis.

Treatment

  • Psychotherapy is as effective as drug treatment in mild cases. Psychotherapy may also be used in conjunction with drug therapy.

  • Antidepressant medications, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are mainstays of treatment.

  • Exposure to bright light, known as light therapy, may be effective, particularly when depression is related to seasonal changes (seasonal affective disorder).

  • In secondary depression, the underlying cause is addressed, although antidepressant therapy may also be prescribed.

Homoeopathic treatment ACONITE NAPELLUS 200 ( Dr.Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water twice daily ALPHA T.S Drops ( Wilmar Schwab India) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily ACONITE NAPELLUS 200 ----During acute anxious state of mind start take ACONITE 200 1-2 drop direct on tongue every 5-10 minutes until symptoms subsides. Santoh the above medicines will help you 100% but I want that you adopt naturopathy in your life style nd for that I will recommend you to do BHRAMARI PRANAYAM daily morning as this Pranayam is a very good tress burster nd relieve you from anxiety related problems. 1.Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing 2.Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each little finger near a nostril 3.Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4.Use your Little fingers to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5.Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6.Repeat three times Tips • Always do what is most comfortable for you. If any of these exercises makes you feel light-headed or uncomfortable, stop or slow down immediately. Take breaks often as necessary. • If you have a medical condition, consult with your doctor before doing pranayama. For example, if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, labored breathing, a hernia, or any other condition that could be exacerbated by especially fast, deep, or intense breathing, you may have to modify or skip some of the following exercises. • Make sure your nose isn’t stuffy. Nostril breathing is crucial in yoga, so if you have a head cold, you won’t be able to complete these exercise. • Don’t suck in your gut. Unless otherwise noted, it’s important that you relax your stomach muscles when doing yoga breathing exercises; when they’re held tight like a corset, you can’t take oxygen as deeply into your lungs. •If you prefer to do Pranayam in the evening, do it on an empty stomach; keep a several-hour gap between your meals and Pranayam. •Sit comfortably with your spine erect. You can sit in the traditional lotus position or simply make yourself comfortable in a chair. For additional tips, •It’s preferable to practice Pranayam in the morning. Warnings • People with abdominal wounds, surgical operations, hernias, peritonitis, appendicitis, a prolapsed rectum or uterus, or a hiatus hernia, as well as women who have recently delivered, should completely avoid Kapalbhati Pranayam,

Diastolic BP of 92 seems to be on the higher side. It's important to know the reasons thereof. It might be due to blood vessel resistance caused by several reasons. He needs to be looked after by a physician.

I am 48 married to person with schizophrenia for the past 20 years. Handling my daughter difficult though she knows his problems she argues with me. I am suffering handling a pshciatric husband and daughter. Help me. My daughter is going to complete 19 years this December.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is very difficult living with a schizophrenic husband especially if he is not cooperative and has frequent breakdowns. If he is functional, that would be a huge blessing. Concerning your daughter, you must remember that she is just been through her teens and will present a lot of problems having to cope with a father who is mentally unstable and a mother who is struggling to cope with her husband. She may have lost a lot of normal parenting and this is her way of expressing her frustration. You need to specially careful with her because she is carrying her father's genes, and her disturbances may precipitate the predisposition in her. In fact, I recommend that you take her for counseling and get some support for her to deal with her situation. The counselor will help you too and give you the necessary guidance to help yourself and your daughter. This is a difficult situation and both of you need help.

Hello doctor I'll get married after a year.
I am afraid from responsibilities.
How to make my self worthy in carrier ...
You need to be very clear about what you are doing and why you are doing it, whether it is your career or marriage. You need to be clear about what you expect from your marriage and your spouse. At the same time be clear about what responsibilities you would like to shoulder after marriage. Your life will change a lot after marriage and you will be having new role/s. Please check with yourself, what are those responsibilities that you are afraid of, and what makes it so scary for you? Then discuss it with someone who can help you. Also observe, how others are managing similar challenges. Set your own limits. Marriage is" interdependence". Any relations is necessarily" Give and Take" so" give" and" receive" gracefully. Try to understand how you have been shouldering responsibility in life, till now and have faith in yourself for the same. If you have self respect, you will find yourself worthy of any role and responsibility. It is advisable to talk to your fiancé about his expectations from you after marriage and you also can discuss what you would expect from him as your husband. Open communication, realistic expectations from others and self, setting goals and making sincere efforts to achieve them will make you more confident about yourself and you will feel worthy of any role/responsibility. All the best.
