Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

I am constantly worried about little things. I have social anxiety and I can not even talk to my friends and family comfortably. Whenever I need to talk to my teachers or strangers my heart starts thumping. This is affecting my personal life and career goals very badly. I am shocked at how bad I am with social interactions and personal life management. I also feel like my cognitive ability has declined as I used to be very sharp but now I struggle understanding even simple concepts. Sometimes I have vague thoughts of suicide but I know I will never get this far. I really need to know what is going on with me and what can I do about it. I am completely unable to make good relations even if I try hard. I really need help.

Dear Lybrateuser, -You have social anxiety disorder especially when meeting & facing people -you should try to overcome your anxiety by diverting your mind in various activities like reading, listening to music, following a hobby instead of thinking all the time about your problems -do deep breathing & yoga in the morning for 10-15 min daily & other aerobic exercises like walking, jogging, these will bring down your stress level & relax your mind & body, interact more with your parents, friends, speak out & do deep breathing if anxiety grips you -eat a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, do not skip meals, have meals on time -have 7-8 glasses of water for good hydration which helps in concentration & keeps you energized -sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed -if not much relief then consult a councellor, will help you.

Androphobia - How It Affects Your Sex Life?

BHMS
Sexologist, Noida
Androphobia - How It Affects Your Sex Life?

Androphobia can be described as the unfounded and often overstressed fear of men. This phobia can affect both the genders, though younger females are more known to suffer from this kind of phobia.

Causes and origin:
Many psychoanalysts are of the opinion that women who had been victims of sexual assault or any kind of male aggression are more prone to androphobia. An unsympathetic and rude father figure can trigger this phobia in both the sexes. Many young girls are taught by their parents or caregiver to stay away from the opposite sex this can also instil a sense of fear for men in the young mind.

Symptoms:
Intense and irrational fear of men is one of the commonest manifestations of this phobia. In many cases, the individual might experience disturbing thoughts about being assailed by men. In spite of realizing that the fear is unfounded, they still avoid any kind of association with men. In some cases, the person is extremely panicky and alert in presence of men. Extreme cases of androphobia are characterized by panic accompanied with tremors, increased heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, stomach ache and chest ache.

Androphobia and sex life:
Androphobia can gravely affect the personal life of an individual particularly his/her sex life. Androphobic women intentionally keep away from male company which definitely has a negative impact on their sex life. Even mildly androphobic women are known to feel uncomfortable while talking to men. The androphobics are generally depressed individuals who prefer to keep to themselves. In spite of having feelings for a man or having the urge to have sex, an androphobic woman will hardly be able to convey her feeling because of her intense fear of manliness. The loneliness and alienation which is associated with this kind of phobia often prompts a woman to contemplate suicide.

Treatment:
As with most other phobias, androphobia is also a curable condition. Your psychiatrist can suggest various medications and psychotherapies to cure your condition. The exposure therapy in which the phobic is slowly exposed to the much feared subject is known to work well in many cases. The CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is another treatment for androphobia where counselling sessions are conducted so that the phobic can express and share her nature of phobia. During the sessions, the counsellor suggests ways of dealing with the phobia and keeping it under control. The objective of the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is to recognize the pessimistic images related to men and turn them into positive ones. When none of these therapies work, the psychiatrist usually suggests anti-anxiety and anti depressant medications which improve the temperament of the androphobic. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

This I bit awkward. I had suffered an accident when my head (neck) got too much turned and I heard a cracking sound. Although it did not cause any pain it made me believe I have broken a bone or two. I have consulted with a psychiatrist but he found no problem in me then. It's been 8 years since then but that thought still sometimes gives me trouble. I have learnt to live with it. But I would rather want a better solution to cope with it. please tell me how do I deal with it and how do I stop to bother?

How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
There is a certain safety limit for alcohol, and for adults it is usually around 80mg. However for a person over 50mg there could be further restrictions due to possibility of metabolic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, obesity, depression etc. Also alcohol can be a contraindication for people with compromised liver status like cirrhosis, fatty degenerations, hbv infarction in past etc. So it would be more appropriate to discuss above issues before deciding any safe limits. Anyways alcohol is not a necessary element for maintaining good health. Avoiding alcohol is a healthier option. Take care.

I had a stressful case to deal with. After that, I have severe headache accompanied by burning at the top of the head. Any advices? My hands too pain, especially if I work on the pc.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Headaches is something which is very tricky. It is one of the commonest physical symptom arising due to inability to cope with excessive stress. But it is something which can be a presentation of grave medical illness as well. This is why you should get yourself evaluated to rule out any physical cause of headache. If they are ruled out managing stress by pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods is recommended.

Sir I am I'll and my body and head is aching some time I am feeling weakness so tall me what medicine can i take Please reply me.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
Dear, the most common causes of weakness are * anemia * metabolic disorder (diabetes, hypothyroidism) * breathing problems (asthma, sinusitis) *digestion problems (diarrhea, gestric ulcers) * cervical spondylosis first check out your haemoglobin (hb), if your hb is low, then eat a lot of green vehetables and iron rich foods like apple, guava, sapotas (cheeku, beet root and oranges. Takeiron suppliments for increase in hb. If your hb level is normal then your all parts of body get adequate level of oxygen. 2. Take deep breaths atleast for 10-15 minutes twice a day. 3. Check out the blood sugar fasting in every 6 months. If blood sugar level, then take proper medicines for high sugar level. 4. In thyroid disorder, there is a feeling of weakness and tiredness. Check out your thyroid profile, if you feel tired even after the proper deit and medicines and take treatment. 5. In the morning, do medication regulary, do pranayam atleast for 5 -10 minute. It will make your hormones level normal.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At young 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Love /relationship is always a mutual thing. If it is one - sided it will only bring pain. The easiest and quickest way to forget her is to make a new girlfriend. Also focus on the negative aspects on her and the relationship for few days. And you will be soon back to happy ways :)

Hello, aged 28 residing back in india need a proper diet plan for bipolar disorder I have been having this issue since last 4 years now could you please advise me on how I can control my sickness thanks,

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
I am glad that you are seeking help online. Thank you for the brief description of your problem and the fact that you are having bipolar disorder for the last 4 years. I agree that medications can be very helpful however you are seeking non medication methods to treat your problems. I am unaware of any foods that can help with your mood stabilization however many methods at psychotherapy can be helpful. If you know the difference between your symptoms and your true self i.e. Self assessment and mindfulness can be helpful. Also educating your family and friends who are near and dear about your illness and involving them in treatment when possible is helpful. Working on healthy lifestyle choices is also helpful. Also, although a combination of these may be helpful, individual treatments may be all that you need or a combination of a few of them. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist for further care.

Doc. I don't sleep soundly. As my mind always activates in the night and process thoughts randomly. So doctors prescribed me antidepressants I am taking 2.5escitalopram and still I always feel sleepy whole day. My kids never shuts down. Very very frustrated. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be under some stress and that will cause a problem for sleep. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT , then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

My doctor is very reluctant to stop my medication for depression although I feel better now. Can I stop it on my own? Are these medications addictive?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your doctor is right. Please don't stop medication on your own. You are feeling better because these medicines are working on your body and mind. If you stop these medicines, your symptoms/problems will come up again. It is advisable to talk to your doctor about how long you need to take it, what side effects will it have or if these medicines are addictive etc. Also talk to your psychiatrist about seeking counsellor's help. Because, along with medicines, counselling will be very helpful for you. Later on, your pschiatrist and counsellor together can decide on tapering down/stopping your medicines, after evaluating your progress.

Hi. I am depressed and I take marijuana because relaxation. How to remove smoking from my life.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Marijuana is a substance of abuse & should never be used to reduce stress or achieve relaxation. If some problem is there in your life which you are not able to cope with, then seek professional help. Consult a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & make your diagnosis, & then prescribe you medicines or advise you counseling sessions accordingly. With treatment, you will definitely come out of the current situation. Marijuana is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers (buds, leaves, stems and seeds of Cannabis sativa—the hemp plant. It is a substance of abuse. Frequent marijuana users have increased irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, cravings, restlessness etc. Marijuana does not have any beneficial effects on the body & harms in various ways. So would suggest that you quit smoking marijuana at the earliest. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including marijuana. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Talk to the psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest for it also. With treatment you can quit smoking marijuana .Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the marijuana. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist smoking marijuana, replace marijuana-using activities with constructive and rewarding non marijuana-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Wish you speedy recovery.
