I am addicted of smoking since 4 years, now I want to give up smoking but unable to do so completely. I am also have minor pain and burning sensation in chest sometimes. Please suggest me what to do?
Hey im 19 years old and I started smoking at 17. Its been 2 years. Now I have reduced smoking and almost quit. The worst thing is that my hands shivers. I want to stop my shivering hands. And I even want to clean my lungs that got affected due to smoking.
Doctor, I always become a fool because of forgetful or don't catch any talk in my mind, if someone has said me then i'm confusing. Tell me, what to do?
I have some concentration problem I am finding for last few months. I had very good attentive mind. Kindly suggest.
Dr. I'm going through some serious pain mentally as the girl that I loved and cared for with all my heart has been playing with me for my childhood friend by dancing on his tune this is killing me inside and I can not keep my head right at all leading to heavy smoking and stress. I'm completely broken emotionally, please I need help!
I am having sleeping problem. After going to bed also I am not able to sleep. Daily I am just sleeping only for 2 to 3 hours in night. In day time also I am not sleeping. I am 28 years old. I am married. Few months before I was going through some personal problems that time onwards this problem started. But now I don't have any stress.
I have anxiety issues. So much that is is hampering my social life. I start to feel anxious when I know I won't be able to get out of a situation. For example. If I am driving the car then I know that I can stop car anywhere but if someone else is driving .I can't stop it so I will feel sweaty feet. Nausea.acidity. Palpitation etc. I am afraid of traveling by air coz obviously one cannot stop plane in between. Or by bus or by train. So basically when situation is not in my control I feel anxious. From my childhood I had an issue with me being anxious when I used to eat with strangers or relatives. Now I don't feel anxious with this situation but now I have anxiety issues which I mentioned above. It is hampering my business and my social life. I don't like myself this way and this is the only worry in my life. I want to know badly how can I cure this. Please help.
Dear Doctor, Psychiatrist I am having problem with occasional anxiety and fear of going far away from home (also fear of going in bus, train, plane) and get anxious in traffic, traffic signal and standing in line for shopping or waiting for purchasing ticket in line) having fear of getting panic/anxiety attack. Earlier, I had 9 month course of pristiq 50 mg ER (which helped), then psychiatrist replaced pristiq with (1 mg clonazepam, 0.5 mg alprazolam in the morning and 10 mg nitrazepam and 1 mg clonazepam in the night) I slowly tapered off from the 4th month itself from half of it to and came out of it in 10 month (very very low dose 0.25 mg clonazepam and 2.5 mg nitrazepam), (I had similar effect both from starting dose to ending dose) when I stopped, again I felt anxious, and different psychiatrist put me on 20 mg paxil (helped with anxiety but problem was always feeling drowsy) came out of it in 9 months. Then started taking some natural supplements and vitamins, since 8 months, now in 8 months I had anxious feeling 3 or 4 times only when I didn't get proper sleep or caught in traffic delay). Now my main problem is going far away from home (also fear of going in bus, train, plane) and get anxious in traffic, traffic signal and standing in line for shopping or waiting for purchasing ticket in line) having fear of getting panic/anxiety attack. My question is, 1) should I continue with natural routine to help completely coming out of agoraphobia? Is it a possibility? 2) should a course of SSRI/SNRI, (say for 9 months and assume) which will make me normal again and free of agoraphobia, and then discontinue the SSRI/SNRI. Is it possible that, I can be free of anxiety and agoraphobia without SSRI/SNRI after stopping SSRI/SNRI? (please note that, earlier SSRI/SNRI had side effect of sleeplessness and low sex drive, so I was not interested in it, but if it helps in long run say after 9 months or 1 year, I can be completely free of anxiety and agoraphobia, the I can go through the side effect? 3) If I do a say, 3 or 6 or 9 month course of alprazolam and clonazepam, and assume, which will make me normal again and free of agoraphobia, and then discontinue the alprazolam and clonazepam. Is it possible that, I can be free of anxiety and agoraphobia without alprazolam and clonazepam after stopping alprazolam and clonazepam? Please note that my anxiety/panic feeling is not very severe, but thinking of discomfort (in last 4 years, I had total of 4 or 5 panic/anxiety attack, lasted in less than 10 minutes, mostly shortness of breath and sometime heart palpitation or chest tightness) when going far away from my home makes me avoid the situation. I really appreciate your detailed guidance for my above query. Thank you very much for your help.

Mood swings bother you and everyone around you!
Everyone experiences disappointment or sadness in life. When the "down" times last a long time or interfere with your ability to function, you may be suffering from a common medical illness called depression. According to research, women experience twice the rate of depression as men, regardless of race or ethnic background. An estimated 1 in 8 women will face major depression in their lifetimes. Despite high prevalence rates people are reluctant to acknowledge clinical depression as a disorder that should be evaluated and treated.
Researchers suspect that, rather than a single cause, many factors unique to women's lives play a role in developing depression. These factors include - genetic and biological, reproductive, hormonal, abuse and oppression, interpersonal and certain psychological and personality characteristics. However, the stages in a woman's life can also subject her to depression- menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Given below are some of the signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing related to your life stage.
Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder - This affects around 3-8% of the women. In this behavioral changes are observed in women 5 days prior to the commencement of their menstrual cycle. The common symptoms are:
Lack of interest in common activities, such as hobbies
Moderate to severe feelings of tension or anxiety with low energy
Mood Swings, such as feeling overly sensitive
Moderate to severe feelings of hopelessness or depression, feeling overwhelmed
Physical symptoms, such as weight gain, joint or muscle pain, or a headache
Changes in sleeping patterns, such as sleeping too much or too little
Changes in eating habits or food cravings
Problems focusing or concentrating
Unusual irritability or anger
Management: Be calm and relaxed. Keep a check and monitor your cycle and emotional outbursts. If you notice some continuity it's important that you consult a specialist. Ignoring the issues can have an effect on your relationships. Be open and talk to your family and your partner about the same.
Pregnancy and Post Partum Mood Disorders- Pregnancy is a stage in which a woman's body is going through a number of hormonal changes. These changes can have a major effect on the mood and can increase the risk of developing depression. Even post pregnancy the risk doesn't end. The following are a list of symptoms. Be informed if you are pregnant or have just delivered a child.
Lifestyle or work changes resulting in relationship problems
Episodes of depression and irritability
Feeling of lack of social support and lost feeling
Mixed feelings about being pregnant
Feeling that pregnancy has pulled you down
Please note that a woman can feel depressed during pregnancy and the feeling can become worse post child birth. It affects 10-25% of women in India. It's important to understand that it's not just you but your body that is going through change. Hormonal fluctuations, psychological pressure and social support all attribute to the same. Be open and consult specialists. Also, talk to your family and your spouse.
Peri Menopause and Menopause Depression- Risk of depression may increase during the transition to menopause, a stage called Peri menopause, when hormone levels may fluctuate erratically. Depression risk also may rise during early menopause or after menopause - both times when estrogen levels are significantly reduced.
Women need to aware that they are vulnerable to develop depression and need professional help to avoid it from causing personal and functional impairment.
Be informed and consult a Psychiatrist if you are experiencing any of the above.

How to eat right to reduce stress
During times of stress, we often turn to traditional "comfort" foods such as macaroni and cheese, pizza, and ice cream. Ironically, these high-fat foods are usually the worst possible choices because they can make us feel lethargic and less able to deal with stress. Not only that, but stress can drive up our blood pressure and raise serum cholesterol levels, wreaking havoc on our arteries and increasing our risk of heart attack.
The best solution? Low-fat, high-fiber, carbohydrate-rich meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables. They soothe us without sapping our energy and give us the nutrients we need to boost our immune system. Here's a guide to which foods reduce stress and which foods make it worse:
Foods to include
High-fiber, carbohydrate-rich foods: scientists believe carbohydrates cause the brain to produce more serotonin, a hormone that relaxes us. And lots of fiber is helpful in preventing late-night binging. Some examples of healthy comfort food include baked sweet potatoes, minestrone soup, or sautéed vegetables over rice.
Fruits and vegetables: chronic stress can weaken our ability to fight disease. By upping our intake of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, we can boost our immune system. Acorn squash and carrots, for example, are great sources of the antioxidant beta-carotene. And citrus fruits provide plenty of vitamin c, another stress-busting antioxidant.
Foods to avoid
High-fat foods: fatty foods such as meat or cheese dishes and many baked goods thicken our blood which in turn makes us feel tired, even lethargic. This is clearly not a good way to reduce stress! even just one high-fat meal can increase our risk of a heart attack.
Caffeine: many of us deal with a stress-induced lack of sleep by turning to coffee, tea, and colas. Unfortunately, caffeine stays in our systems longer than many realize. Cutting back on caffeine can help with both sleeping problems and jitters.
Sugar: as a carbohydrate, sugar tends to calm us. The problem with sugar is that it's a simple carbohydrate so it enters and leaves the bloodstream rapidly, causing us to, in effect" crash" on the other hand, complex carbohydrates? such as pasta, beans, and lentils, the starchy parts of foods? soothe without bringing us down.
