All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

An event or an accident that leaves us overwhelmed can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD. 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 PTSD. This condition is something that is persistent, and can linger on for a long time, calling for medical supervision and care. Here's a list of things you need to know about PTSD.

  • Duration: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder usually lasts up to six months. Yet, there are cases where it lingers on and requires treatment for some particular types of symptoms or behavioural changes. Usually, the patient's behaviour is a result of one or more of the symptoms discussed below.
  • 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.
  • Avoidance Symptoms: A traumatised patient may go out of his or her way to avoid things that are remotely close to the traumatic incident. They may fear a reoccurrence or a reminder of the event and may avoid addressing the trauma altogether. Patients suffering from this symptom may have created a mental block, and may not be able to remember the exact details of the event. They may also feel emotions like fear, guilt, depression and even worry, over the past incident which led to the trauma in the first place. 
  • 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.
  • 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.

PTSD can be a debilitating disorder in the emotional sense, and should be treated by a psychiatrist in case it lingers on for more than six months.

I am 17 years old boy. I am in class 12th as I am. Going to give my boards exam. I want to know that eating less food will effect on my brain. Eating less will cause less blood flow in brain. Will it cause weakness in my body and cause effect on my memory.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Why would you want to eat less food? if you are planning to go on a diet for weight loss, eating less is not recommended. You need to eat the same amount, but reduce the fat and carbohydrate content. Increase the protein content. If you follow a very low or zero calorie diet then definitely your brain functions will be affected. Brain needs glucose to work. That comes mainly from carbs in the diet. Eating multiple (4-6 times) small meals is considered a healthy way to control your food intake.

Over thinking by itself cannot cause death. It cannot cause any physical problem in fact. Yes it may increase your stress significantly. If you are getting suicidal thoughts then it is a big cause of worry and you should take immediate action. In any case, discuss in detail about your problem with a psychiatrist or a psychologist. Over thinking can happen due to several reasons. You need a diagnosis first.

It's a good thing that you recognize that it's a problem and are willing to ask for help. First step done. Second step is starting treatment. Alcohol dependence is a brain-disease. Due to regular intake of this chemical, certain areas in your brain change. This leads mainly to tolerance (needing more and more alcohol), withdrawal (having problems like insomnia, tremors or craving on leaviqng alcohol) and craving. To make your brain come to a normal state, you need medicines. First phase would be detoxification. Here your withdrawal symptoms will be treated. After 2-3 weeks, rehab phase will start. Here you will need therapy to reduce craving, taking care of other problems, changing your lifestyle, etc. You need to be away from alcohol for 6-12 months at least to let your brain heal. Visit a qualified psychiatrist today and start your journey towards a healthier life. All the best.

A heart-break or rejection in a relationship is processed by our brain in the same way as physical pain. So the pain you are feeling is very natural and very normal. Your mind will take time to come out of it. Like any other wound, emotional wounds also take time to heal. On an average, a time of 6 months is required for the grief to reduce. Of course you can make this process faster or slower. If you want to come out of this, then first thing you need to realize is that you need your love and attention right now. You have to treat yourself as the most valuable person in the world. You need to figure out ways to please and pamper yourself, respect yourself and love yourself. Giving a small treat like a new shirt or a hairstyle will boost your self-esteem. Meeting old friends and new people will work wonders. On the other hand, if you want to delay this process then you will remain in the self- pity mode. You will keep thinking that you are a victim and you are the most deprived person in the world. You will keep blaming someone or something for your misery. You will keep calling yourself a failure. The fact is, most relationships in your age'fail' people don't fail. You are not the only one. Lastly and most importantly, seek professional help because you have constant low mood, suicidal thoughts, lack of sleep, sadness, etc. Please go to a psychiatrist as soon as possible. This could be depression. It will not let you come out of this phase unless you take treatment.

Emotions have very bad effect on my memory, I get carried away by emotions quickly. So please suggest m how to improve my memory, I take stress easily, you can c it on my face. Sometimes it becomes difficult to manage, even the smallest task to handle. I am 23 male, working as a private employee, because of this condition, it is effecting my scores, and questions are being raised, if I can perform well in THE future or not. So please advise me in HOW to improve my memory power.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Your memory may be fine, it's your attention that seems to be problematic. Adult adhd (attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder) or add (attention-deficit disorder) are very common and highly under-diagnosed. If your brain doesn't pay proper attention to an information then it cannot retain it. Hence you won't remember it. Other signs are difficulty in planning and organizing, easy distractibility, impulsivity, losing your belongings, mismanaging your time, etc. To get a proper diagnosis however, you need to see a good psychiatrist.

5 Reasons You Must Rid Yourself of Anxiety on Daily Basis

5 Reasons to Get Rid of Everyday Anxiety

Anxiety is a disorder where the body is in a state of alertness as a result of a stressful situation. It is an inbuilt mechanism, which can result from stress, threat or pressure. Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The blood supply to the brain increases during anxiety, thereby quickening heart rate and tensing the muscles of the body to facilitate a state of high alertness. High anxiety levels can give rise to a number of health issues, reason why you should try to minimize your anxiety levels.

Here are 5 reasons to get rid of anxiety:

1. High blood pressure - 
Spikes in blood pressure occur during periods of anxiety. These temporary spikes can result in damage to heart health and blood vessels in the body. Anxiety may also cause a person to smoke or consume alcohol, which affects blood pressure.

2. Stomach problems - Anxiety is known to cause problems in digestion as symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and an upset stomach are reported to occur. It may cause vomiting, abdominal pain, and constipation.

3. Weight gain - Binge eating during periods of anxiety can cause weight gain in affected people. A study reported that stressed out women processed fat and sugar in a different manner than usual, thereby leading to an increase in weight. Weight gain can give rise to other complications like diabetes and high blood pressure.

4. Disorders of the respiratory system - People with respiratory diseases face complications due to anxiety. Breathing problems such as hyperventilation can cause further complications.

5. Depression - Anxiety can cause a person to develop depression, which can be life-threatening. Thus, preventing anxiety can help in preventing depression as well.

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.


If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

Zaptra and depran belong to the same class of anti-depressant. If you didn't have any sexual side-effects with depran, then it is unlikely you may get any from zaptra. However, the known side effects are prolonged ejaculation, difficulty in orgasm and sometimes decreased sexual desire.

Yes she definitely requires assessment and treatment by a psychiatrist. A lot of patients develop acute depression after a surgery, especially in old age. It could be some other mental illness also. It's ok if she feels afraid to visit a psychiatrist, you should still take her. She'll be much better when her treatment starts.

You are currently suffering from the symptom of hypersexuality. Your mind is using this unhealthy coping mechanism to deal with emotional stress, probably arising from a fear of abandonment or rejection. It is just like using illicit drugs to deal with a problem. You need to quit it immediately, but with professional help. You also have a lot of myths. First of all, there is no age limit to lose one's virginity. Unfortunately the average indian male has a very wrong and skewed concept of sex. You need to get some facts right. Your body is your responsibility, not your friend's. High risk behavior like visiting a csw can put your entire life in danger. Secondly, no girl or woman is impressed with how many girls a man has had sex with. So don't beat yourself about it. Please visit a psychiatrist and get yourself treated as soon as you can. You have a lot of other things in your life to focus on and enjoy. This problem will not go away on its own.

What we as a society say and ask for from our children, can sometimes be drastically different from nature's plan. This is the age of the body's sexual growth and maturity. Along with the bodily changes, hormones cause changes in the brain too. Physical attraction, fantasies, sexual desire, etc are all natural and normal for teenagers. You cannot change how nature has designed your daughter. That said, you definitely need to guide her behavior. At this point in her life you cannot control her completely, nor can you leave her totally independent. My suggestion would be that you start accepting her for who she is. Accept that she likes someone or is attracted to someone. Then you guide her behavior respectfully, without being demanding and instructive. Confess your fears and anxieties. Ask her about her fears and apprehensions. Give suggestions based on your experience. It is ok to tell her what you expect, but gradually she is going to make more and more independent and self-centered choices. That's part of growing up. So be prepared. Teenagers take time to learn how to balance peer pressure and parental pressure. Don't push her to an extreme. If you treat your daughter with growing respect, you will be respected. If you become rigid and demanding, she will act stubbornly too.

I am 43 yes, have bipolar disorder for past 20 yes. Can it pass on to my children. 8 years old another 16 yr. What symptoms show this disorder.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Yes, bipolar disorder is hereditary. Your children have a 10-15% chance of having bipolar disorder. The symptoms mostly manifest in middle or late adulthood. Keep an eye on any mood symptoms that your children show. Educate them about the illness. There is no need to be afraid, as most of the times the symptoms can be controlled with medicines. Also, most patients live a relatively normal life as the symptoms are episodic. One should monitor sleep changes and mood changes. Any extreme deviation could be a signal for an episode.

A lot of people have tremors, mostly without any major reason. Anxiety increases tremors. So to reduce them you need to relax. First thing you need to work upon is try not to worry about the tremor itself! let it happen. It's no big deal. Next, practice simple relaxation techniques like slow and deep breathing, imagery, etc. Learn muscle relaxation. Once practised, you can apply these techniques in public to further reduce your tremors.

Every thought or feeling that comes in your mind / brain is natural. Homosexual thoughts are very common in both men and women. 100% of people in the world have them. If you are attracted to your wife and have a stable and happy married life, then I would suggest that you treat these thoughts just like a heterosexual attraction. Just like you would brush away feelings of attraction towards another woman, ignore these thoughts and feelings as straying of the mind. Calling a thought unimportant is the best way to help it fade away. The more you pay attention to it, stronger it becomes. However, if the attraction you feel is very strong, you are unhappy in your marriage, you feel uncomfortable in your current sexual role, then it's time to introspect who you really are. What you do about it is another matter all together.

Speaking of phones May cause memory loss? And please tell me the reasons and controls.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
There is a term called'digital amnesia' it refers to the reduced use of our memory due to over dependence on digital technology. As everything is available on finger tips today, people don't make efforts to remember numbers, appointments, names, etc. Less use of any function of the body can definitely lead to its weakness. However the damage is not permanent or irreversible. Memory exercises can help a lot. Another thing to acknowledge is that digital media create a lot of distractions in our day to day life. This again interferes with our memory by reducing our attention, making us less efficient. Some time away from phones, tabs and computers is definitely recommend on a daily basis.

If you try to forget something, it's memory becomes stronger, because while trying to forget it you are actually revising it! ignore the thoughts and feelings associated with the event. Do not talk about it with people. Distract yourself with another thought or memory if it recurs. The memory will gradually fade away. Once it stops bothering you, you can analyze and come to terms with your past in a healthy way. It is impossible to completely erase a memory from the brain.

Your dreams carry the emotional attachments of your sub-conscious mind. It is very normal to get that dream. You can however decide'consciously' how much importance you want to give to these remnant feelings. Ignore it, don't act on it, let it fade away or think about it, be concerned and take an action that may disturb your present. Choice is yours.
