Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

I have been smoking cigarettes so please help me mujhe cigarette chodani he muje solution dijiye.

Psychologist, Pune
Hello congrats that you want to quit smoking have you decided finally then do not wait do it now. Apni zindagi pyari hain na? sahed apne haath main hain. Internal damage dikhta nahin to precautions abhi se le lo. Bahut paani pina chalna jyada apne aapko kisi ache kaam main lagao. Gardening reading cooking etc jo accha lage ga woh karo. Ek ghante ka alarm lagaye. Roj khud ko thx bolo ki aap kamyab rahen. Shuru main peppemint ki goli khaye dheere use band karo. Change your associations related to smoking bahut jaroori hain.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing one's mother is a major setback for any and everyone. It's a very difficult phase and getting out of it takes time as well as the support of other loved ones. I see the loss you have suffered has had an adverse impact on you, both physically and psychologically. Depression is an illness in which your appetite, as well as weight, lowers down for a lot of people. This is what is happening with you. Although rich food and multivitamins may help you recover some of your strength, you need to work on the emotions that you have been experiencing. You need the support of your family and friends in this difficult time. Being okay in front of them while being broken inside, you are living a dual life and it's affecting you. I would suggest choosing a family member or friend you are close to and sharing your feelings with him/her. You need to unburden yourself. Further, you need to work on a pre-decided activity schedule and try and stick to it as much as possible. Make sure you have multiple short periods of study in your schedule. Do not make the study periods longer than 30 minutes at a time. It would be difficult for you to sustain attention at present. Study for 30 min, take a break for 15 min, then again study for 30 min. In this manner, try and bring your attention to your study material. Try studying in a group with friends, write down in order to remember, or teach a friend to ensure you have learned the material. If you find yourself being distracted, read aloud in order to maintain your focus. If these symptoms persist, kindly see a clinical psychologist at the earliest.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Hello lybrate user, arthritis is a degenerative condition which progresses with aging. It goes through different stages like mild, moderate and severe arthritis. You might be suffering from arthritis at the age of 49 because of some pre-disposing condition but it usually presents in patients greater than 55 to 60 years. You have mentioned that you have bearable pain while walking. You might be in the early stages of arthritis. This can be managed by lifestyle modifications like light exercises, weight reduction, physiotherapy for the muscles of knee to maintain the mobility and strengthen the muscles. This might decrease your pain as well. If you have persistent pain, it might respond to painkillers. Surgery is advisable to only those who have unbearable pain and who are unable to do their daily routine activities because of the advanced arthritis. The other disadvantage of surgery at an early age is the limited life span of the prosthetic knee joint. Even in ideal cases has a life span of 15 to 20 years, after which you might need to undergo revision surgeries which are complex and are associated with a high rate of complications. So considering an average of 12 years of implant survival, by the age of 70 to 75 you might need a second revision surgery. Therefore, it is best to delay surgery as much as possible unless you have complications like decreasing movement at the knee joint or development of a severe deformity because of a severe grade of arthritis or unbearable pain not responding even to the highest doses of medications. Hope this helps.

Difference between bipolar diseases and psycho disease any symptoms which differ these two.
Dear user. I can understand. Bipolar disorder is a disorder associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. This is a neuro chemical psychiatric disorder. The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role. Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep and loss of touch with reality. Depressive episodes may include symptoms such as low energy, low motivation and loss of interest in daily activities. Mood episodes last days to months at a time and may also be associated with suicidal thoughts. Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy.

Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Your son could be suffering from Acute Stress or anxiety problem. Sometimes short term counseling can help. He needs to be assessed for any underlying depressive illness or anxiety disorders as well. It could be because of some underlying other medical problems like thyroid. Consult a Psychiatrist for better outcomes lest his career would be in jeopardy.
