Try ashwagandha or tagar natural herbs for sleep correction. Try ayurveda nasya karma and shirodhara which can help you to sleep rather then allopathic medication, as they carry a lot of side effects and are habbit forming. Also, you can try with pranayam and meditation as well, they can help you sleep well.

Dear sir, I can see you are under the care of a good doctor. Please continue his treatment. But for the sinking feeling in your heart, I suggest you ask him to try changing some medication. Exercise and yoga also help in reducing bp and giving a sense of well being. But first, take the cardiologist's opinion regarding exercise.

Symptoms And Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

Symptoms And Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

A particularly stressful situation or event that has created terror or been overly dramatic or dangerous can lead to stress and anxiety long after the individual has physically come out of the situation. This kind of a traumatic condition is usually what characterises Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

In simple words, PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations.

Symptoms of PTSD:

  1. Mood symptoms: Mood swings are the most common outcome of these symptoms. The patient may experience a complete lack of enthusiasm and drive to indulge in activities like hobbies and socialising. Also, the patient may end up harbouring feelings of negativity towards family, friends and strangers, besides going through phases of guilt and self blame for the occurrence of the traumatic event.
  2. Re-experiencing symptoms: These symptoms include flashbacks and life like re-imagination in the form of dreams and nightmares. In many cases, the patient may remember and re-experience the entire scene or series of events that have led to the trauma in the first place. This can be triggered by a memory or association with words, events and other such things that have to do with the memory of the traumatic episode.
  3. Arousal symptoms: Arousal or reactivity symptoms may trigger the same reactions that the person showed during the traumatic experience. These may include being on edge constantly in anticipation of a reoccurrence, or even getting startled by the slightest thing since the mind is already occupied with thoughts of the event, constantly. Anger and emotional outbursts may also be caused due to these symptoms.
  4. Avoidance or rumination: Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.- Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Treatment for PTSD:

Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence. Other therapies, including Cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are also done depending on the patient's condition.

How do medications help regulate these responses?

The medications prescribed for treating PTSD symptoms act upon neurotransmitters related to the fear and anxiety circuitry of the brain including serotonin, norepinephrine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), excitatory amino acids. There is great interest in developing agents with novel and more specific mechanisms of action than are currently available to target the PTSD symptoms described earlier while also minimizing potential side effects.

Studies show that a number of medications are helpful in minimizing PTSD symptoms. Most of the time, medications do not entirely eliminate symptoms but provide symptom reduction and could be more effective when used in conjunction with an ongoing program of trauma specific psychotherapy for patients.

Medications

Several types of medications can help improve symptoms of PTSD:

  1. Antidepressants. These medications can help symptoms of depression and anxiety. They can also help improve sleep problems and concentration. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medications sertraline (Zoloft) and paroxetine (Paxil) are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for PTSD treatment.
  2. Anti-anxiety medications. These drugs can relieve severe anxiety and related problems. Some anti-anxiety medications have the potential for abuse, so they are generally used only for a short time.
  3. Prazosin. If symptoms include insomnia with recurrent nightmares, a drug called prazosin (Minipress) may help. Although not specifically FDA approved for PTSD treatment, prazosin may reduce or suppress nightmares in many people with PTSD.

You and your doctor can work together to figure out the best medication, with the fewest side effects, for your symptoms and situation. You may see an improvement in your mood and other symptoms within a few weeks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is a mental health condition, which is usually triggered by an unfortunate event experienced or witnessed by the affected patient in the past. The symptoms of this condition are flashbacks, nightmares and extreme anxiety. The patient also thinks about the event in an uncontrolled manner.

PTSD is a serious mental health condition that can damage the affected person's personality to a great extent. Therefore, the person should be given proper treatment at the earliest. There are various treatment methods for PTSD that can help you in changing how you think about a traumatic event. The treatment options that can be used have been mentioned below:

Counselling:
There are different forms of counselling for treating PTSD which include:

  1. Cognitive therapy: It is a therapy where you learn how to change your thought patterns regarding the trauma and allow you to eliminate unnecessary fears.
  2. Exposure therapy: It involves talking about the trauma over and over again until the fear departs.
  3. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: It is a process where you are made to focus on several forms of distractions like sounds and hand movements while you think about the trauma. A good therapist is very important to bring positive changes in your life by means of counseling therapy. You require a therapist who will listen to whatever you have to say and guide you through everything to make you feel better.

SSRI medicine:
SSRI or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor is a form of antidepressant medicine, which helps you with your sadness and tension. There are certain medicines that are really effective and can be prescribed by your doctor depending on the condition.

Other forms of treatment:
There are several other types of medicines and procedures that can be used for treating PTSD. They include the following:

  1. There are other counselling forms, which include group therapy, brief psychodynamic psychotherapy and family therapy.
  2. There are other medicines as well for the treatment of PTSD. They include tricyclic antidepressants and atypical antidepressants.
  3. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors like isocarboxazid can also be used for curing PTSD.
  4. Certain mood stabilizers can be taken along with the medicines such as carbamazepine and lithium.
  5. Several antipsychotics, which include risperidone can be used to tackle symptoms such as flashbacks and sleeplessness.
  6. Another medicine known as prazosin is also used for dealing with nightmares and sleep disorders caused by PTSD. All kinds of medicines for the treatment of PTSD should be taken only after being prescribed by a doctor.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious mental health condition in which a patient suffers from continuous negative thoughts regarding a traumatic event which has happened in the past. This condition may give rise to other health problems, and immediate treatment is recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Priapism - Types and Causes!

Priapism - Types and Causes!

One of the rare sexual problems to affect men is a condition termed as Priapism. As known to many, a normal flow of blood plays a pivotal role in ensuring a healthy and proper erection of the penis. During an erection, the tissues of the penis (soft and spongy tissues) receive an increased flow of blood (triggered by the relaxation and expansion of the arteries of the pelvis and the penis). However, any abnormality in the flow of blood can affect this erection giving rise to priapism.

Priapism is a sexual disorder characterized by an erection that lasts for an abnormally long time period (at times for close to 4 hours). With such an extended and prolonged erection, priapism results in immense pain and discomfort. The condition can affect all males, irrespective of their age (from newborns to aged people). However, men in their 30's are more susceptible to priapism. The trigger for priapism is not always sexual arousal. A person can also suffer from this condition instantaneously without any sexual excitement.

Ischemic and Non-Ischemic Priapism
Depending on the flow of blood to the penis, priapism can be either

  1. Ischemic Priapism: Here, the blood that flows to the penis and the erection chambers gets trapped there, failing to move out. Also known as Low-Flow Priapism, this painful condition results in prolonged erection (often more than four hours) without being sexually aroused. In Ischemic Priapism, the penile shaft appears stiff and rigid as compared to the penile glans which appear soft and tender.
  2. Non-Ischemic Priapism: This type of priapism arises from the improper regulation of the flow of penile blood. Also known as High-Flow Priapism, the condition is quite rare and can be triggered by an injury to the perineum or the penis that may rupture or damage an artery.

What triggers priapism in males?
As already stated, one of the prime factors responsible for Priapism is the improper flow or regulation of penile blood. There are many factors and medical conditions that can act as a potential trigger affecting the normal flow of blood.

  1. Sickle-cell anemia: Sickle cell anemia is an inherited genetic disorder whereby the red blood cells appear sickle-shaped instead of being round shaped. Sickle-cell anemia can go a long way to trigger priapism, especially ischemic priapism (the sickle-shaped RBCs can be instrumental in blocking the penile blood vessels) in males. Ischemic Priapism can also be an outcome of Leukemia or even Malaria.
  2. Multiple Myelomas, as well as Thalassemia, can also act as contributing factors resulting in Priapism.
  3. Certain medications can also wreak havoc triggering priapism. Some of these medications include:
    • Antidepressants (bupropion, fluoxetine).
    • Blood thinners (such as heparin).
    • Alpha-blockers (tamsulosin, prazosin).
    • Atomoxetine and related medicines (used in the treatment of ADHD).
    • Clozapine and other related drugs used to deal with anxiety.
    • Phentolamine, and related medications used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
  4. Priapism can also be triggered by medical conditions such as penile cancer, gout, syphilis, injury to the spinal cord or the penis, alcohol abuse.

Ayurvedic treatment helps to work on its sysmptoms, prevention and treatment of later complications, correcting imbalance, adjusting the immune system and most importantly helps in boosting energy and strong body for better health and quality of life. The purpose of this treatment is not to replace necessary orthodox medical treatment. A combination of both is recommended.
