I agree with Dr. Manoj Raghavan. Additionally you may look at panic anxiety attacks that may be causing both symptoms. They are normally sudden and erratic, and cause blackouts and rigid tensions in the body. If you are in your teens, then there could be some childhood trauma underlying this reaction. It is a wonderful phenomenon that nature offers to seek the resolution to this problem stemming from childhood during this period. Panic attacks are related to fear: you are afraid of something real or made up that is causing you to react in this fashion. You may not be totally conscious of it though. Talk to a counselor and see if you can locate the cause. In the meantime do some vigorous physical exercises daily, and attend Yoga classes to learn some relaxation techniques. Deep breathing will help to temporarily stave off the reactions but not enough to resolve it.

Do meditation. Speak to friends/family. Pick up some hobby. Listen to music. Join music classes. Do daily walk/exercise. Join an NGO. These are all different things you can do to relieve your stress. And for weight loss you can take these steps. - The best medicine for Weight loss is Simple Diet + Daily exercise. - Cut down Oils/Sugar/Maida/Ghee/Salty stuffs from your diet. - Cut down Puris/Parathas/Pizzas/Burgers/Fried Rice. - Add more Fruits /Salads/Proteins to your diet. Double your water intake. - Eat slowly and mindfully. Take 1600 calorie diet daily. - Exercise daily Cardio for 40-60 mins. This is essential for good health. - Reduce socialising/company of people who are addicted to junk food and overeating. - Love yourself and respect your body. - This is the best path towards good health and happiness.

Hi, Please stop consumption of cannabis it could be withdrawal effects of cannabis that you are having. Hit The gym/exercise for 1 hour daily, drink plenty of fluids and fresh fruit juices (bitter gourd), green leafy vegetables and practice mindfulness breathing exercise - The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult for therapy. All the best.

Diet and workouts go a long way in helping you gain strength to gain weight, you must eat more calories than you burn. When you gain weight, some will be fat and some will be muscle. To gain muscle, you must eat protein. To boost the ratio of muscle to fat gain, you must exercise. To gain muscle and strength, you must engage in resistance exercise. To improve bodyfat percentage and gain weight, you must cycle through phases of gaining muscle and losing fat. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Depression does not cause hair loss directly. Minoxidil can be used but it has side effects like cardiac effects. Consult your dermatologist and psychiatrist before using antidepressants along with minoxidil.

Your tests came back negative and therefore Your increased Blood pressure, surely could be due to your anxiety. That is also natural. Anxiety, in any kind is supposed to hike your BP by around 30 mmgg. You need to answer your anxiety problem first. For that you should diagnose your type of anxiety with a psychologist, get psychotherapy treatment.

Hello, You have depression. I do advise you try initially Meditation Concentration and relaxation Cognitive Behavior therapy and self analysis what is the conflict underneath or the trigger. Accept the same and slowly change you attitude from hopelessness to hope. You also try sleeping naturally over a period you will succeed. Don't rush,or jump into conclusion or make decision on yourself. Reality is different. Accept conflicts/events which have caused anxiety or depression without any reaction as they come and they will fade away. Take breaks for a holiday or relaxation with family and friends and children and have a change in life. Charge your body and mind and spirit with positive energy. Give others also positive energy, Automatically you will build a positive result.

Hello lybrate user, first of all you have to investigate the reason behind your weakness. If there's anything that you are hiding that is excessive masturbation , any difficult situation, anxiety, apprehension related to your performance, etc. then provide details so that I can help you with that.

Dear lybrate-user, some type of depressive disorders are recurrent and so needs long term maintenance tablets. Please do not stop them without consulting your doctor. Since you are young and want to stop tablets, you can come online for cbt - cognitive behaviour therapy. They are weekly sessions sometimes you may need 18-20 sessions. Unless you understand and practice cbt for 6 months or so, please do not stop tablets.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person .I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful things in their lives and growing each day and I'm still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless. What should I do now?

Life is full of ups and down my friend. It has not happend to you only. It happens to many people but in a different ways. You just like others have many other options. Just relax and do not burden yourself. Every sucessfull person had worst times in his/her career or life. ITs part of life, take it as an experience. It is not the hard work which you can see and get results, it is also the consistency and sincerity which pays, may be a bit later, but it pays. Its your life, do not compare yourself with others. Your have different opportunities and problems than others. So what ever you are doing, if you think its not good, then simply stop doing that. It is as simple as that. Do not worry, you are just a kid. You have alot to learn. Stay positive. Stay in touch. Opt what you like. Do not be in a herd. Good luck.

Hello lybrate-user, it is quite human and normal to feel possessive about your family members because you love and care for them. And I sense that you too want their love, acceptance and support from them. 1. However it is important to remember our boundaries with everyone including family members so that the relationship has breathing space and all members are able to" grow together" and find their own individual space in this world. In psychology we call it the human need for individuality and togetherness. 2. When a person gets both kind of space in life, they feel connected, safe, secure, Confident and liberated. This is very important for all people to give and take from each other. 3. If a person doesn’t get the space to experiment and do things in their own way, their individual personal growth stops and high possibilities of dysfunctional living ie. Arguments, misunderstanding, poor physical and mental health. 4. Thus I suggest that you give your family members the space to branch out and grow in different ways which might be their dream. 5. Trusting them and being patient with them is important. Doing their own thing doesn't mean that they don't like you or will forget you. This is a very innate need and they will function best when they get space and also enjoy some emotional closeness with each other. 6. While they are doing their own thing, I suggest that you start looking into your own life and pick up a lost hobby, catch up with friends or whatever you think you didn't have time for and had sacrificed for the sake of your family. This way every person will have space and support of each other.

YOu try natural methods like meditaion and yoga. Or you need to take medication .Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. 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. Take care.

There is a inferiority complex! That when I know that somebody has more knowledge than me or is much smarter than me so while talking to that person I stammer a lot. And people make fun of me.

Dear lybrate-user, I suppose your low confidence or inferiority complex due to your fear of not being able to make an impression by talking in a normal way. However, it may look reverse. You should know what was the oath for this development. If it was there since your childhood days it's mostly to do with your practice and other non progressive conditions. Stammering is very stressful and the only method to get it corrected is to practice strategies to speaking fluently. Your speech pathologist will be able to help you in this regard.

One of my want to quit his habit of eating tobacco, but he is not able 2 do that, He has been eating this 4 around 4-5 years. What should he do, to quit it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.

You are not happy. Something is bothering you. But probably you are not able to understand what is causing this sadness and why you feel like crying. I guess you have lot of suppressed emotions. Please try to understand what is going on in your mind. Do not try to avoid or neglect your true feelings. Kindly talk to a counsellor who will help you to get in touch with your innermost feelings and who also will help you to relieve you of the stress caused by this. Once your suppressed emotions get a healthy outlet, you will start feeling lighter and then you will start enjoying life. All the best.
