Anxiety Disorder - 6 Signs To Look Out For!

A right amount of anxiety is good to keep you progressing on your goals and life; when it gets too high, things go helter-skelter. It is normal to get anxious and stressed at times. However, when the stress starts affecting your lifestyle, it might be an anxiety disorder. The irony is, more often, you may not know when it exceeds the limits that your body and mind can bear.

Read on to know a few symptoms when your anxiety has turned into disorder.

  1. Worrying excessively: If you tend to worry about normal matters to such an extent that it overrules your life and are also experiencing tiredness, then it is a signal of undue stress. In short, if your emotions are causing a great deal of discomfort, you are ailing from anxiety problems.
  2. Irregular sleep patterns: If you are unable to fall or stay asleep, it could be normal anxiety. However, if you find yourself being awake for prolonged durations at night and it is accompanied with uneasiness, it is advisable to get some help for recuperating from anxiety disorders.
  3. Strained muscles: Your muscles are tensed if you perceive that you are clenching your jaws or closing your fists. Also, they are symptoms signaling that you have an anxiety disorder.
  4. IndigestionAccording to research studies, digestion problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and anxiety are correlated. Due to psychological stress, your gut is adversely affected. Moreover, if you are having digestive problems, it causes anxiety. Some symptoms of IBS include flatulence, bowel-related problems, cramps, stomach pain and bloating.
  5. Breathing issues: If a person suffers from respiratory troubles such as shortness of breath or rapid breathing (hyperventilation), they should go for a diagnosis to ascertain whether they have an anxiety disorder. Also, they must consult the doctors on the treatment course. It is also important to adhere to the instructions of the medical experts for a quick recovery.
  6. Other symptoms: Some other symptoms of anxiety disorders include trembling unwarranted self-doubt, compulsive behavioral patterns, being obsessed with perfectionism, having disturbing flashbacks, heightened heart rate, nausea, burning sensation on the skin, dizziness, tingling, numbness, difficulty in concentrating, sweating, urge to urinate frequently, heart-linked palpitations, and irritability.

On a concluding note, it should be noted that if you are experiencing stress, there are various ways of tackling your problem. Seeking the help of a counselor is an option. Furthermore, you can engage in relaxation and deep breathing techniques for easing the tension in the body. You can start with low-impact exercises such as swimming, gardening, walking, or jogging. Gradually, you can progress to high-impact workouts. These methods are effective for your overall well-being. Also, they can thwart depression because of the release of the ‘feel-good’ hormones known as endorphins.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

An Insight On Obsessive Compulsive Disorder!

An Insight On Obsessive Compulsive Disorder!

All or most of us have the habit of double checking if the house is locked before leaving home or cleaning the house extensively till it is spotlessly clean. But if such behavior becomes an obsession that you can't help doing it and go about it compulsively to the extent that it affects your normal life, it might be a case of OCD. OCD which is the acronym for obsessive-compulsive disorder, a chronic disorder in which a person has uncontrollable reoccurring thoughts and an unavoidable urge to perform a particular activity over and over.

How to know if it is OCD?

  • People affected with OCD have both, obsessional and compulsion symptoms. Obsessions are repeated thoughts, images and urges that create anxiety in human mind like fear of contamination or germs, expecting things to stay in perfect order, feeling taboo against caste, sex religion, and corresponding harm and so on.
  • Compulsions are repetitive actions performed by an OCD patient in response to his or her obsessional thoughts which may include excessive washing, cleaning, arranging things in a particular way, repeated checking out things or work done, counting things over and over again and more.
  • However, not all repetitive actions are signs of OCD. It's common to see a person checking a crucial work done by him twice. This becomes obsessive when a person is not able to control his thoughts and activities, gets distressed about not performing those activities and spends a significant amount of time in a day on these tasks.

Who are vulnerable to OCD?

The causes of OCD are not yet clearly known. However, people have higher chances of developing OCD when their first-degree relatives are affected by the problem. Moreover, the risk goes even higher when the first-degree relative was affected at his young or teenage. Researchers are still working to find the link between OCD and genes so that causes, diagnosis, and treatment of OCD get better in future.

Studies have also revealed that there might be some connection between OCD and abnormalities in some regions of the brain. People who experience traumatizing experiences in their childhood or during their life are highly susceptible to OCD. However, such ideas have not yet been proved.

How can the condition be managed?
OCD is treated with psychotherapy, meditation, or a combination of both. However, some medicines help to get over OCD and its symptoms. But the best way to help an OCD patient is if he can himself get his obsessions and compulsion under control. Medicines will always help OCD symptoms but might have some side effects.

The OCD symptoms may come and go, go easy over time or worsen. Patients might identify the problem themselves or might fail to understand the abnormalities in their lifestyle. If a person feels that he/she is being affected by OCD, there is a need to consult the doctor before it disturbs the normal life.

Alcohol Addiction - How To Know If Your Friend Is Suffering From It?

Alcohol Addiction - How To Know If Your Friend Is Suffering From It?

Do you worry about your friend or relative’s drinking habits? You are not alone. There are people who struggle for years with the same question - How can I tell if the person I love is an alcoholic or not?
Well, the good news is that you don’t need to be a medical professional to figure out the right answer to this vital question. Read on to find simple ways to know whether your loved one suffers from alcohol addiction.

First up is a short quiz about drinking habits, developed by Dr. John Ewing to identify alcohol addiction. Treat this as a pointer and take your loved one to an expert, if it points towards alcohol addiction. You can ask these questions directly to your loved one, or you can answer these questions on their behalf.

According to the developers, one "yes" to the four quiz questions signals a problem, and more than one “yes” means that it's time for you or your loved one to get professional help.

  1. Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
  2. Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
  3. Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
  4. Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?”

There are many signs of a serious drinking problem. These include certain behaviours such as:

  1. Drinking just for getting drunk
  2. Drinking alone
  3. Keeping alcohol consumption a secret
  4. Drinking to escape problems
  5. Hiding alcohol bottles
  6. Experiencing withdrawal symptoms like getting irritated or experiencing nervousness, nausea, getting shakes, breaking out into a cold sweat, and getting hallucinations when unable to source alcohol
  7. Having problems at work, school, or home, as a result of alcohol consumption
  8. Losing interest in activities you or your friend used to enjoy
  9. Having blackouts due to heavy drinking
  10. Anger and extreme irritation

Other extreme behaviors to watch out for are:

  1. Being able to drink an awful lot of alcohol
  2. Trouble stopping once your loved one starts drinking
  3. A powerful urge to drink

There is another scientific way to determine, if your loved one is an alcoholic. In the US, medical professionals commonly use a criteria, listed in the fourth edition of the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’. According to it, the signs and symptoms of alcoholism are clearly laid down and it states that alcohol dependent people:

  1. Will drink more to get their desired effect from alcohol
  2. Experience withdrawal symptoms when the effect of alcohol wears off
  3. Drink larger amounts of alcohol over a longer period of time
  4. Will be unable to consistently control their drinking
  5. Will leave important work for drinking
  6. Will spend a lot of time during the day getting alcohol, drinking it, and recovering from hangovers.
  7. Continue to use alcohol, despite knowing that their chronic physical or psychological problem is caused due to alcohol.
  8. To be declared alcohol-dependent, your loved one must experience at least three of these criteria during a year.

However, there is still no one definite test to diagnose alcohol-use disorders. Therefore, professionals diagnose them by making use of the patient’s comprehensive medical, family, and mental-health information.

Dissociative Amnesia - Different Ways It Can Be Treated!

Everyone forgets things once in a while, but for some people this forgetfulness can be a sign of a bigger problem. People who cannot remember important information about their life may be said to be suffering from dissociative amnesia. This can cause memory loss of specific events and themes or make the person forget a majority of their identity and history in general. This dissociative disorder can be mild or be severe enough to affect the daily functioning of a person.

Lost memories cannot be brought back with treatment but treatment can help a person suffering from this disorder reconnect with people and feel secure in their surroundings. The treatment of this condition must be customized to the person’s symptoms.

Some forms of treatment for dissociative amnesia are:

  1. PsychotherapyThis is also known as talk therapy as it largely involves conversations between the patient and doctor. It is the main form of therapy used to treat this condition and can also act as an umbrella for many other types of therapy.
  2. Cognitive behavioral therapyCognitive therapy focuses on changing the person’s behaviour. It focuses on thinking patterns and feelings that are harmful to the person self-image.
  3. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing: Dissociative amnesia is often associated with traumatic events. In such cases eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is used to address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorders such as nightmares and flashbacks.
  4. Dialectic behaviour therapy: People who have suffered from abuse or trauma may have severe personality disturbances which may include dissociative amnesia. In such cases, dialectic behaviour therapy may be used.
  5. Family therapyDissociative amnesia is often a recurrent condition and affects not only the life of the patient but that of his or her family as well. Hence therapy for the entire family is often necessary.
  6. Creative therapies: Cognitive therapy includes art therapy, music therapy etc. This allows patients to explore different ways of expressing their thoughts and feelings.
  7. MeditationMeditation and practising relaxation techniques make people more aware of their internal stress levels and equip them to better handle their symptoms.
  8. Clinical hypnosis: When being used to treat this disorder, hypnosis allows a person to express thoughts and emotions they may have hidden form their conscious minds. Through hypnosis the patient can achieve a different state of consciousness through relaxation techniques, concentration and attention.
  9. Medication: Dissociative amnesia cannot be treated through medication but antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication can help deal with the disorder by calming the mind.

Depression - A Real Illness That Is Often Ignored!

Life is full of surprises, some are pleasant and some not so pleasant which makes all of us ride the roller coaster of emotions. Sadness is a part of life as well, in some cases, it tends to pass while in some it affects a person deeply; this is called depression. This is can affect your daily routine to a great extent.

What are the various types of depression?

  1. Major depression: Severe symptoms that can affect work, sleep, eating habits, study and all other activities of daily life.
  2. Persistent depressive disorder: The symptoms affect a patient for at least two years with several episodes of major depression accompanied by some period of less severe symptoms, but the signs somehow last for at least two years.
  3. Psychotic depression: This is the case when a person has some form of psychosis along with depression. This may include having false beliefs, delusions or hearing or seeing things that others don’t hear or see.
  4. Postpartum depression: This occurs in mothers of newborn’ when there are several hormonal and physical changes taking place accompanied by a new and utterly unknown responsibility.
  5. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD): SAD is characterized by a depressed mood during the winter months when there is comparatively less sunlight. Light therapy along with anti-depressants and psychotherapy can lower the symptoms of SAD.
  6. Bipolar disorder: Though this condition is a lot different from depression but has been included here as it has episodes of extreme low moods. A person can have bouts of severe high moods also in this case.

When to seek medical help?
If you are consistently experiencing persistent sad or anxious mood, feeling hopeless, pessimistic or guilty, lower levels of energy, loss of interest or lack of concentration or thoughts of death, suicide or suicide attempts, it is essential to seek medical help to confirm if you are suffering from depression and proceed with the treatment process.

How can it be treated?
Even in very severe cases, depression can be treated. Most of the patients have a distinct improvement in their lives when put on antidepressant drugs, talk therapy or a combination of both. The earlier the symptoms are identified and communicated to the doctor, the easier it becomes to treat the patient effectively. At times, medicines or underlying medical conditions can create symptoms of depression which can be identified and addressed by the doctor accordingly. However, if no medical condition is found, psychological evaluation becomes necessary.

To win over depression, one must know that depression is a real illness which can affect in many different ways but is treatable. So, if the symptoms are noticed, the first step to take is to make an appointment with the doctor. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
