I go too much for toilet before exam/interviews, this makes me nervous or feels weak, although I have prepared hard for exam. I've seen its adverse effects. What to do?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

This usually happens due to anxiety. The neurotransmitters involved in anxiety disorders in brain are the same that supply nerves of the involuntary muscles of the bowel. Hence anxiety in the mind and brain increases bowel and bladder activity too in some individuals. Once anxiety is managed your problems will resolve. Try some relaxation exercises like yoga and meditation during exams. Have a good sleep. For more queries and assistance consult me online.

I feel nerve tightness in temporal nerves, jaws and around the head I had these symptoms since 2010 when I had depression.in 2010 it got cured after taking medicines but in 2011 it again started.in 2012 I again took antidepressants for two months then these symptoms were gone for 4 months but again started. I then after six months went to psychiatrist n took medicine like dimip/depsol 75, gabapin NT, valpipchrono500.i took them for one year but did not get much relief. I then changed the doctor n he added one medicine lamitor OD. I immediately felt better. and for one year I was ok. But then it seemed that those medicines stopped working on me. I then recently took Ayurveda medicine. I felt excellent for last 5 months. But now again these medicines stopped working. Due to this nerve tightness I become depressed and I have lot of dreams so do not have sound sleep. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate-user, recurrent depressive disorder is recurrent as the name suggests. Your history also suggests the same. It comes on its own and goes away like a passing cloud on its own. Only during the depressive phase you need antidepressants allopathic or ayurvedic. They are mainly to endure the depression and to prevent suicide. It has not much of preventive value for future episodes of depression. To prevent every year depressive episode, your psychiatrist has prescribed valip chono and later lamitor od. These preventive drugs have to be taken for many years. And also they have to be taken during your normal phase also. The dose will be adjusted according to the benefit - whether every year attack has reduced, whether the severity is less, whether you spend many months in normal mood. For all these things please maintain a mood chart daily for years. Take the mood chart to psychiatrist and discuss with him/her. Nerve tightness is one of the symptoms of depression rather than cause for depression. No sound sleep also is one of the symptoms.

I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Hi its basically you want to be loved by your friends and family. Since you are living alone in pg, you feel ignored and on the same hand, you have less no. Of friends which makes you realise this time and again. However, being in relationship with any one is perfectly fine until you and the other person are sharing some kind of happiness. You are more or less insecured about losing your loved ones due to the incidents that happened in your life. This is the major reason that you constantly dwell in past. You should be determined to get healthy and fine like others ; with proper medication and conselling, you ll get yourself back. I need proper detailed history of your to work upon your case and give you best possible results.

I am 26 years old. I had a baby in 2011 n my doctor had asked me to eat calcium tablets for six months but due to some tension n stress I had those calcium pills for not even one month after delivery. N no proper diet. I always feel weak n dull. Never felt fresh after baby so now should I start some calcium supplement available in the market or what should I do?

Of course you should take them, even now. You must have a proper diet because you are suffering from malnutrition. In fact I suggest that you take a multivitamin and multi-mineral as supplements. It is better if you took vitamin d3 along with calcium, which is how it is found anyway. You may also eat a lot of greens, expose yourself to some sunlight every day, and do some weight-bearing exercises, for a natural way to good health regarding calcium uptake.

I have an problem of stammering I want to cure it quickly. So I want some help from you to cure my stammering problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can. Being young it will be a lot easier to sort it out now. Being in late adolescence, this will also be your last chance to deal with this problem otherwise, it can become a permanent one.

Hi lybrate-user, Practice JPMR (JACOBS PROGRESSIVE MUSCLE RELAXATION TECHNIQUE) His relaxation technique starts by tensing one muscle group for five to 10 seconds. Then the same muscle group is relaxed letting the muscle go limp for 15-20 seconds. When I use this progressive muscle relaxation script with clients I find that this relaxation technique creates a deep sense of physical relaxation. Suggested tips before starting this progressive muscle relaxation script Find a quiet place that is comfortable for you. Practice at a regular time during the day. Preferably not after you have eaten Find a comfortable position. If you are sitting, then keep your back straight and feet flat on the floor. If lying down (the preferred option as your body is supported by the floor) then you can put a pillow beneath your knees for extra support. Adopt a passive attitude to PMR. When tensing muscles (without straining), do so for roughly 5 seconds. When you relax your muscles do so for roughly 15-20 seconds before progressing to the next muscle group. Tense each muscle group once before progressing. Progressive muscle relaxation script Start out with a few relaxing breaths. Use the diaphragmatic breath, and as you exhale feel the tension begin to ebb away. Clench your fists. Move your awareness to your hands. Clench both of your fists for up to 5 seconds. Release for 15-20 seconds, imagining the tension ebbing out of your hands. Tighten your biceps. Move your attention to your arms. Draw your forearms toward your shoulders, creating a bicep. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release and imagine the tension flowing out of your biceps. Forehead and scalp. Move your attention to your forehead. As you inhale lift your eyebrows and wrinkle your forehead. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release, feel the relaxation of the muscles of the forehead. Facial muscles. Move your attention to your facial muscles. Furrow your eyebrows and purse your lips. Try to pull all of your facial muscles towards your nose. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release feel the relaxation of the facial muscles. Jaw. Bring your attention to your jaw. Clench your jaw tightly, feeling the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Relax the muscles and allow the tension to disappear. You may feel your mouth begin to open a little. Neck and shoulders. Now bring your awareness this region. Shrug your shoulders towards your ears. Feel the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the muscles ebb away. Upper back/shoulders. Now bring your awareness between the shoulder blades. Push your shoulder blades back as if you were trying to get them to touch. Feel the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in between the shoulder blades ebb away. Upper chest. Now bring your awareness to your upper chest. Tighten the chest muscles and hold. Feel the tension in the upper chest muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the chest muscles flow away. Stomach. Now bring your awareness to your navel area. Try to draw your navel in to your backbone. Feel your stomach muscles tighten. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the abdominal muscles dissipate. Buttocks. Now bring your awareness to your buttocks area. Squeeze your buttocks together, consciously tightening the muscles in this region. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in these muscles disappear. Thighs. Now bring your awareness to your thigh muscles. Try not to contract your stomach muscles as you consciously tighten your upper thigh muscles. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the thigh muscles dissipate. Calves. Now bring your focus to your calf muscles. Consciously tighten your calf muscles by pointing your toes. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the calf muscles flow away. Feet. Now bring your focus of attention to your feet. Tighten your feet by curling your toes toward the ground. Hold, hold and hold some more…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the feet flow away. Mentally scan your body for any residual tension. If you find a muscle group with residual tension then tense and relax this area again. Feel a wave of relaxation, from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. When you are ready bring your awareness back to your breath and slowly open your eyes. This entire progressive muscle relaxation sequence should take you 15-25 minutes.

Dear , your friend must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your friend's problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your friends problem

This is a case of General Anxiety of fearing for situations and problems which might not even occur in future. For relieving stress, we suggest you take Relaxation therapy like Jacobson Progressive muscle relaxation therapy. Also we use Cognitive Drill therapy which is a unique therapy used for phobias, anxiety, panic attacks (more info on jainhypnosis.com) for which you can seek session from any CDT trained therapist. The therapy helps to break this habit formation and reduces stress and anxiety.

Dear user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia or dementia are not possible. Your forgetfulness could be due to anxiety or stress. The same anxiety and stress could be the reason for your lack of confidence, nervousness etc. I suggest counseling, CBT and motivation therapy. Take care.

Homeopath,
Soo you know your getting angry with someone. And this is not a good thing you also know it. Soo if you know your doing the wrong thing you have knowledge about that, soo if you know this you can correct urself also. U have to talk to your mother-in-law about this. Sometime this kind of thing make an impact on someone's mind. If not work try to avoid that situation. Meditation is needed. And also you need some proper homeopathic treatment for this. U can go to a counsellor for counseling. Bt dnt take psychiatric drugs. Soo for further quaries and treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.

Dear lybrate user. There are no short cuts in weight loss. No diet can help you unless you find time for aerobic physical exercise. One hour aerobic physical exercise with low fat diet can help you reduce weight at the rate of around 2 kg per month. Do not be over enthusiastic about weight loss. Such over enthusiasm could lead to disappointment and stress. You need counseling. Take care.
