Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Feeling anxious, developing palpitations, and not feeling comfortable while talking to someone or in social situations is suggestive of social anxiety disorder. However, more details would be required in order to reach a definitive diagnosis. You should consider seeking a psychiatric consultation and get yourself completely evaluated. Social anxiety disorder is a treatable disorder and treatment with medications and cognitive behaviour therapy will help you get better. Best wishes.

He is very week having very low stamina .He is deeply addict for cigarette .please suggest me homeopathic medicine for quitting this smoking problem.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, He may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. He could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking he will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever he faces any tense situation. Here lies his real test. He will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, he can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAPHNE INDICA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce his craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking he should take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing his teeth.

Dear sir, I always get useless thoughts comes in my minds and I cannot control over it and it gives heavy stress on my brain/skull muscles and due to that sometimes I get headache, paining all around shoulder muscles, generate gases, neck muscles paining, paining and flickering of left eyes muscles, paining behind the left ear muscles and paining that vain which goes from left shoulder to left eye via left brain. Also, once I am continuously working more than one hour by giving full attention in my work then my neck muscles giving full pain. Finally at that time, I do not like anything, nothing makes me happy at this moment and I feel very awkwardness I need to go outside from the home or work. Sometimes it also gives a felling like that it is my last day on earth. Most probably this kind of things is to be happened when I am alone. For this decease I am taking pills from last 2-3 years and the name of pills are given below. 1) PARI CR25 TAB2) TRAZINE H TAB3) MODAFIL MD 100 TAB4) GALOP 10 TAB5) NEXITO 10 TAB6) DO RE ME 25 TAB7) PARADISE XR 258) AMICO H TAB9) ELFOLIN 7.5 TAB10) FELIZ S 10 TAB11) ESPAZINE 1MG TABBy taking these pills I am feeling very good and day by day doctor decrease the pills and finally today I am just taking MODAFIL MD 100 TAB and ESPAZINE 1MG TAB.

Hi lybrate-user, Your concern in genuine and understandable! Though your concerns are vast and require proper sessions of therapy/ counseling. Here's what you can do to relax your self! Jacob's progressive muscle relaxation Progressive Muscle Relaxation teaches you how to relax your muscles through a two step process. First, you systematically tense particular muscle groups in your body, such as your neck and shoulders. Next, you release the tension and notice how your muscles feel when you relax them. This exercise will help you to lower your overall tension and stress levels, and help you relax when you are feeling anxious. It can also help reduce physical problems such as stomachaches and headaches, as well as improve your sleep STEP ONE: Tension The first step is applying muscle tension to a specific part of the body. This step is essentially the same regardless of which muscle group you are targeting. First, focus on the target muscle group, for example, your left hand. Next, take a slow, deep breath and squeeze the muscles as hard as you can for about 5 seconds. It is important to really feel the tension in the muscles, which may even cause a bit of discomfort or shaking. In this instance, you would be making a tight fist with your left hand. It is easy to accidentally tense other surrounding muscles (for example, the shoulder or arm), so try to ONLY tense the muscles you are targeting. Isolating muscle groups gets easier with practice. Be Careful! Take care not to hurt yourself while tensing your muscles. You Should never feel intense or shooting pain while completing this exercise. Make the muscle tension deliberate, yet gentle. If you have problems with Pulled muscles, broken bones, or any medical issues that would hinder Physical activity, consult your doctor first. STEP TWO: Relaxing the Tense Muscles This step involves quickly relaxing the tensed muscles. After about 5 seconds, let all the tightness flow out of the tensed muscles. Exhale as you do this step. You should feel the muscles become loose and limp, as the tension flows out. It is important to very deliberately focus on and notice the difference between the tension and relaxation. This is the most important part of the whole exercise. Remain in this relaxed state for about 15 seconds, and then move on to the next muscle group. Repeat the tension-relaxation steps. After completing all of the muscle groups, take some time to enjoy the deep state of relaxation. Note: It can take time to learn to relax the body and notice the difference between tension and relaxation. At first, it can feel uncomfortable to be focusing on your body, but this can become quite enjoyable over time. The Different Muscle Groups During this exercise, you will be working with almost all the major muscle groups in your body. To make it easier to remember, start with your feet and systematically move up (or if you prefer, you can do it in the reverse order, from your forehead down to your feet). For example: Foot (curl your toes downward) Lower leg and foot (tighten your calf muscle by pulling toes towards you) Entire leg (squeeze thigh muscles while doing above) (Repeat on other side of body) Hand (clench your fist) Entire right arm (tighten your biceps by drawing your forearm up towards your Shoulder and “make a muscle”, while clenching fist) (Repeat on other side of body) Buttocks (tighten by pulling your buttocks together) Stomach (suck your stomach in) Chest (tighten by taking a deep breath) Neck and shoulders (raise your shoulders up to touch your ears) Mouth (open your mouth wide enough to stretch the hinges of your jaw) Eyes (clench your eyelids tightly shut) Forehead (raise your eyebrows as far as you can). Practice this, but, your situation demands detailed analysis and monitoring of thoughts as well. Many a times, stress and ache are connected to the way of thinking. So let me know about the thoughts which can be the reason behind the problem. You can consult me directly. All the best:) Don't worry you will be fit soon!

Depression is better treated by counselling, friends clubs, laughter clubs, outdoor sports, a gentle and caring hand of mother, sister or a girl friend than just medicines. So forget what you are suffering from, look around. See how nature works. Watch birds, shower in a natural spring, wander in a forest. Get closer to nature. You will discover joy of living.

He might be having emotionally unstable personality, accept what he is, and ignore his negatives and take his positives. Speak with him softly when he is a good mood and you can encourage him to get the help of a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist to control his outbursts. All the best.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears to me that you are under lot of stress. I also guess that this has something to do with your family and childhood experiences. You appear to be sad and having low self confidence. Probably you did not get love and appreciation from your near and dear ones when you were growing up. Please seek help from a Counsellor. By talking to a Counsellor you will get more self awareness and you will know what is happening to you. The Counsellor will also help you to be more confident about yourself. When you will feel better about yourself, you social interaction would improve. Your mind is empty probably because there is no purpose left in life, for you. Your poor concentration and weight gain also probably is because of stress. During the process of Counselling, you will learn to relive and manage your stress. All the best.

Hi,am 45 year male,married have a 18 year son.From childhood used to write only in capital letters.Difficult to write in small caps & running letters.But from past years becoming difficult to write certain numbers like 3,6,8,9,0 and letters like B,S and few more.It takes more time to start & write above mentioned numbers & letters.Becomes more difficult to write if someone is watching me while writing, can't write correctly. Please suggest. Thanks Samir mehta

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some people who have become habituated to write in capital letters. You have been doing so for many years and it has become entrenched in your writing style. To change it now will be very, very difficult unless you are willing to go to calligraphy classes and work at it for a long time. Anyway, why would you want to change your style now, when you have managed for so many years?! The writing itself may not be the problem as much as it seems more psychological. Just to rule out any neurological problem you may get an examination from a neurologist. Your mind could be playing all kinds of tricks with you and making you very conscious of being inadequate and different from others. As you have mentioned that it becomes more difficult, if someone else is watching you. If your mind decides that something is going to be difficult, then it will make that difficulty become real. Are you under any kind of stress, especially to do with fear? You may be very suggestible under fear. This obsession can be quite a handicap, but of your own making. Talk to a psychologist or counselor to identify any underlying causes to your problem and have that sorted out. You will find that the difficulty with those numbers will also disappear.

Dear lybrate-user. Burning and itching skin sensation (which makes you to scratch) has been attributed to anxiety and stress, behaving apprehensively (worrying, fretting, being anxious) causes the body to activate the stress response, which brings about specific physiological, psychological, and emotional changes in the body to enhance the body’s ability to deal with a threat—to either fight with or flee from it. Due to the nature of these changes, the stress response is often referred to as the fight or flight response. Due to the extent of changes the stress response brings about, stress responses stress the body, and especially the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for sending and receiving sensory information to and from the brain, including sending and receiving sensory information from the nerve endings in the skin. Counseling and psychotherapy will be able to help you. Take care.

How Can You Improve Your Memory with the Help of Psychiatry

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How Can You Improve Your Memory with the Help of Psychiatry

Psychiatry is not just a form of medicine to identify and treat the psychiatric illness, but it also helps in improving attention, cognition, memory and concentration. Psychiatry has its role in different fields and working in the field of memory improvement is quite interesting. Memory is basically the process through which a person stores information for days, months and years.

Human brain is a dynamic entity and has wonderful capacity to store information and recall it as and when required. However, our memory is affected by a number of reasons, such as aging, accidents, negligence and certain diseases, which involves our brain and nervous system. Further, the memory of an event will improve, based on the frequency at which it has been recalled.

Apart from the frequency of recall, psychiatry can also help a person to improve the capacity of brain and sharpen their memory to store incidents or events for a prolonged period of time.

How along with psychiatric therapy you can improve your memory

  1. Improving your concentration while doing any work will naturally improve your memory. Doing things with concentration will help us in storing information for a longer period of time.
  2. Relieving your mind from stress or anxiety is also a great way to improve your memory as stress has the ability to hamper your memory.
  3. Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential for a better memory. For increasing the memory power, psychiatrists insist on a diet which is anti inflammatory, rich in protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.
  4. A simple 20 minute exercise routine will not just help you to stay fit physically, but mentally as well.
  5. It also important to sleep properly, as sleep helps your mind and body to prepare for the next day. It is also advised to have a short nap in the afternoon to improve your brain functioning during the day time.
  6. Smoking and frequent consumption of caffeine also hampers your memory, thus, it is advised that one should quit smoking and reduce the consumption of caffeine. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate user - it really needs the courage to express yourself face to face. You experience the social anxiety and there are the ways to deal with it. Your unrealistic thoughts stops you from experiencing your feelings at face to face. Thoughts may be' I can't express myself' if I express myself, others are going to laugh at me' I get stuck up while saying' there may be more. It has to be expressed from your end. These unrealistic thoughts create anxiety feelings which stop us from talking to others face to face. It is important to deal your unrealistic thoughts from reality perspective. This will help to bring down your anxiety level.
