For your smelling difficulty, you should consult an ent specialist. For excessive masturbation, there are many reasons. Sex and sexual activities are natural relaxants. Probably youare stressed or do not have a goal in life, these are some reasons for diversion to these activities. Also check if you feel confident or not. When one feels incapable of facing other people, sometimes they tend to find comfort inthese activities. Analyse your situation and consult a psychologist to help you feel confident and more in control of your life.

Mental Problems In Menopausal and Post-Menopausal Women

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Mental Problems In Menopausal and Post-Menopausal Women

The period around the age of 45 to 50 is very delicate for most women as many changes occur within the body. The changes occur due to menopause or a cessation of the menstrual cycle for a period of at least 12 months or so. Along with a host of physical changes, post-menopausal women tend to suffer from mental problems as well. Some of the factors could be physical changes such as a decline or stop in hormone productions while some of them are psychological effects as well. Some of the common mental problems faced by women are mentioned below:

  1. Depression: This is by far the most common mental disorder and affects women while they are going through the process of menopause. After a few years, post-menopausal women tend to recover from this or the symptoms at least taper off. It is estimated that almost 20% of women undergoing menopause suffer from this problem, although the risk of depression is much higher if you have prior history of it.

  2. Sleep Disorders: This can be described as not only a mental disorder that affects women but also a symptom of menopause. Sleep disorders can range anywhere between disturbed sleep, insomnia or sleep apnea (breathing difficulty while sleeping), especially in older women. Women undergoing menopause may suffer from this due to hormonal changes which result in hot flashes. These can wake you up in the middle of the night almost daily.

  3. Schizophrenia: This is a serious mental disorder and is mostly noticed in women who have a prior history of the disorder. This condition is characterized by delusions and a detachment from reality which often pushes the person to act on their inappropriate imaginations. Schizophrenia usually manifests itself in young adulthood and peaks again at the age of around 45 to 50. If you had episodes of schizophrenia in your early adulthood, then it may resurface during menopause, although most women do see a subsiding of symptoms some time after menopause has occurred.

  4. Panic Disorder: Women tend to experience this problem, during or even after menopause, as a new disorder that suddenly develops. This can be quite disruptive in your life. Also, if you have a history of this disorder, menopause may trigger it to show up again.

  5. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: This disorder is another mental health issue that can cause you to be overly obsessive, more so among menopausal women. If you already have had OCD in the past, menopause can trigger a relapse or a bad episode.

  6. Bipolar Disorder: In this case as well, menopausal women have a higher tendency for a relapse or the start of a bad episode if they already had even mild signs of it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I'm a 23 year male. I was good in my studies at school level. Gradually it decreased. I've never took my studies seriously, I had a confidence that even if I study a week before exams, I'd pass. During my graduation I had a breakup and to come out of it wasn't easy for me. I can't explain it in this mail but every day was like hell to me, I couldn't sleep, eat properly and what not. Slowly I've started getting out of my self pity thoughts. In these situations I thought that I wouldn't pass my xams but somehow I did. After that I've done a course but I didn't had enough confidence in me, by that time I was different than what I was in my early days. I could hardly remember or understand the concept. I couldn't think creatively, so I thought to go for another course, now i've completed that but same again. I'm out of my confidence, cannot concentrate on anything, after failing in an interview I thought that at least from now I'll prepare again but I can't even start a thing. My job profile needs creative thinking, but I cannot even think normally. Some times I feel my cognitive functions aren't normal. What should I do to get out of my situation? I need to improve the functioning of my brain. I should have confidence, passion. Should I consult a psychiatrist? Please someone suggest me a detailed answer.

lybrate-user, you began by telling about your problems with studies and how your grades/marks have lowered in recent years since you completed schooling. As I can see, much of your concerns are about how your abilities and thinking are not matching upto your expectations. You have taken different courses and did your best to keep yourself confident but it hasn't helped you much. You seem to be having greater worries about how you think and why your thoughts are not focused on any particular goal. A bad experience in a relationship also added up to your worries and distressing mental condition. A relationship usually distracts and preoccupies with attachment issues which makes life difficult to handle. These long series of negative events and circumstances have reduced your overall motivation and lead to a distressing mental state where you constantly worry about your abilities. From a clinical perspective, it would not be possible to make any valid diagnosis as of now. For that more interviewing is needed and clinical tests need to be done (psychological assessments). Many times due to repeated failures, we develop a negative attitude towards ourselves and remain in a constant state of depressed mood and low energy. In your situation, it seems you do require medical consultation. But medicines won't help you for long and may not alleviate all the problems. Negative thinking develops over time and mostly it is not a direct effect of one or two circumstances. Low confidence, self-pity thoughts, poor concentration, low motivation, lack of energy and low self esteem are some of the persistent effects of negative thought process. You also believe that you may not be having normal cognitive functions. You seem to over-think about your performance, which is impacting your life achievements. Negative thoughts result from negative beliefs about self. When we think we are unworthy then we lose the confidence to take initiatives and get biased towards seeing all negative outcomes. We don't welcome any new changes in our life cheerfully. This has happened with you that with every new goal you have set for yourself, you have gradually become hopeless with that achievement. This is mainly because you don't feel much confident towards yourself. Deep into your mind, you believe you don't deserve a positive outcome. We can say that you think in a very black-and-white mode of thought process. This implies that either things should be all good for you or all bad. There is no mid-way for you currently. You are achieving some things in your life but you don't see them as worthy to change your life altogether. Here comes the importance of understanding your own thoughts and beliefs. It is important for you to know how your long held beliefs about yourself have impacted your mental state. It is not entirely some brain chemical which is causing this distress. Body is equally effected by how we think, than being just the other way around. So for temporary benefits, you may take medicines. But for long term relief and cure, you need to see a Clinical Psychologist and take Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) which is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is a very effective therapy for long term benefits from depression and anxiety. All the Best.

Consult a dermatologist to find out the cause of itching. Your current treatment is helping to reduce the symptoms, but not curing the underlying cause. Treat the cause and you will experience relief.

More than anxiety, I think you are developing phobia and having hysterical reactions too. These are all fear based and as such if you work with a counselor to address the fear a lot can be resolved. These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime, you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.

Dear, 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. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.
