From last many year am suffering from a problem that some words stuck into my mouth while speaking I went blank I know I am suffering from some thing what is that I do not know.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy

It appears like a social anxiety or performance anxiety. Kindly try the following: 1. Write down your thoughts and while alone, stand in front of a mirror, and slowly read it aloud or imagine that you are talking to your friend/colleague, stand in front of the mirror and say the casual dialogues that you will have with your friend, colleague. 2. Check with yourself what kind of words do you get get stuck at? are they" names" places" or are these words difficult to pronounce? write it on a paper and while alone read these words loudly. 3. Please understand that we all make mistakes. So please allow yourself to make mistakes. Try to improve upon your speaking skills and every time you notice some progress in yourself, pat yourself or reward yourself. 4. You can overcome this with more and more practice. Practice different dialogues, when you are alone, you will gain confidence by doing this. 5. Have realistic expectations from yourself. We all are good at some skills, not good at some skills. Focus on your good points and skills. You need encouragement and support. Try to be with people who will understand and appreciate your efforts. Best of luck.

I have respiratory problem for last 2 years. It is frequent (say 3 or 4 times in a week) to have severe problem during normal respiration accompanied with wheezing. It stays for 2-3 hours and disappear automatically. I am not a smoker. How can I get rid of this problem?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Since the body area that needs utmost attention is the chest, one should try to keep it warm. Use fomentation bottle to warm up the chest, upper back, and back side of the neck. Keeping your feet in warm water is also helpful. It has been found by the researchers that drinking 3 glasses of orange juice everyday can bring down wheezing to 70%. Steam helps relieve the symptoms of all the respiratory tract ailments. Throw a towel on your head to inhale steam from a mini sauna, for 10 minutes. Steam will humidify your respiratory passages, easing your breathing, that will help in looking after the wheezing.

This is a critical age for a children, due to hormonal changes in their body they have many curiosities in their mind about themselves and about surroundings. Try to handle him with lots of patience and in friendly manner otherwise these curiosities may lead him to wrong path. Answer his questions. Also make him understand the importance of studies for his age. Encourage him to join some sport activities/classes that will make him active and divert his mind from any unhealthy thinking.

Hello, practice mindfulness. It helps you in staying focused on the present rather than dwelling on past or worrying about future. Do some aerobic exercise which makes you sweat for atleast 10 minutes. Be patient, it doesn't happen over night. It'll take a few weeks, but you'll definitely feel relaxed and in the present moment. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, If left untreated, migraines can linger for four hours to three days. Stop the suffering sooner by putting yourself in a migraine-soothing environment and trying various natural remedies or medications believed to help treat these throbbing headaches. Stay in the dark room until your migraine goes away, or for as long as possible. Wear sunglasses when necessary. If you have to be out and about and are unable to get to an area with soft light or no light, wear polarizing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the brightest parts of the light spectrum. This may not be quite as effective as spending a few minutes in a dark room, but it will usually still help. If you cannot go to a separate room, wear noise-canceling headphones over your ears to block out external noise. Some individuals find silence stressful or unnerving. If this is the case, run a white noise machine or air purifier in the background to provide soothing ambient sound. You could also try soothing music; however, avoid loud or exciting tunes. Deep breathing exercises can relax the body, thereby releasing any tension that might be contributing to your migraine. Lie on your back with a pillow below your head and a second pillow below your knees. Your legs should be somewhat bent. Place your dominant hand on your upper chest and your other hand below your rib cage. Breathe in slowly through your nose until your stomach pushes against your non-dominant hand. Breathe out slowly through pursed lips as you tighten your stomach. Keep your dominant hand still throughout the entire process. Do this routine for about five minutes. A cold washcloth applied to your achy head can cause the blood vessels there to contract, which slows down the rush of blood to your head. Wet a soft, clean washcloth with cold water and place it over your forehead or on the back of your neck. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Take a 10 to 15 minute break before applying the compress again, and continue in this pattern until your migraine goes away. Note that in some instances, however, cold temperatures can actually make a migraine headache feel worse. If the pain increases within the first 5 minutes of treatment, stop immediately and try something else. Stand under a cold shower with the water running over the top of your head for at least 15 minutes. Give yourself a head massage while you shampoo. This helps to reduce the tensions in your body while releasing the heat from your scalp. Lightly squeeze the excess water from your hair, but keep it damp. Do not dry your hair. Lie down in a cool room while your hair is still damp and try to sleep for a while. You can place a towel over your pillow if you are worried about it being wet. There are often certain foods that can trigger migraines in people; what the triggers are will vary from individual to individual. You can determine any dietary triggers you may have by recording what you ate prior to the onset of a migraine headache, and looking to see if there are any patterns over time. Common dietary triggers of migraine headache include: Foods containing aspartame or MSG Alcohol, Chocolate, Cheese, Salami, Caffeine. Caffeine is a paradox when it comes to migraines. Too much can bring a migraine on, but taking a little caffeine after a migraine comes upon you can actually help the pain to go away. Only take a small dose of caffeine: one soda, one cup of coffee, one cup of tea, or one chocolate bar is sufficient. Avoid energy drinks high in caffeine. Note that this generally only works if your migraine was not originally triggered by caffeine. As long as the pain has not made moving around unbearable for you, light aerobic exercise can get your blood flowing to other areas of your body and cause your migraine to vanish. Aerobic exercise worth trying during a migraine may include brisk walking or jogging, cycling, or swimming. As your heart pumps, your blood circulation will improve and stabilize throughout your body, causing the blood to stop rushing to your head. Additionally, exercise is a good way to relax and get your mind off any stresses that may have triggered the migraine. Keep a migraine diary. When a migraine comes on, make a note of the environmental conditions surrounding it. Write down sensory stimuli (bright lights, loud music, odd odors, etc.), causes of stress, dietary habits, and sleep habits. After a few attacks, review your diary to pinpoint common conditions that usually exist before a migraine comes on. These conditions are your “triggers” and should be avoided to prevent or limit future migraines. Some home remedies you can do: Eat jaggery with ghee. Add a teaspoon of dried tulsi leaf powder and it gets even better. Practice pranayama, especially recommended if you have migraine in which case munching grapes or licking honey to which you add turmeric and salt prove helpful. Garlic is a useful herb and in case of headaches too you can chew a couple of cloves early in the morning or make a paste and apply to your head. Asafetida is a useful elixir for headaches, use asafetida mixed in oil and applied over the forehead as well as consumed internally for relief in headaches. All the best.

Often I get anger for silly things how can I control my anger. What are the things I need to follow to control my anger can you pls help me out?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is of recent origin, which I suspect, then look back and see what has triggered off this reaction. It has to do with anger. When you have identified it you can work to out with a counselor. If not it may be of some past event in your childhood, in which case we may have a more serious problem. You and your parents would do well to visit a counselor and trace the feeling of anger from childhood. This may have a major bearing and could lead to complications if not dealt with soon. Anyway, you must do vigorous exercise everyday and that will expend the energy and leave you with the memory to deal with. You will also need to check whether you are acting angry when you are really scared. In that case you are escalating anger over the fear to cover it up. This will not deal with the fear and you will need to investigate that and deal with that instead. It is not advisable to ‘ruminate’ over this feeling as it will feed into an impulse and you may lose control over that and do something inappropriate. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Thanks for your query. Death is something that is inevitable for all of us. But we have to remember that comitting suicide is not the end of our problems. We have to prepare for death just like we prepare for an evaluation. Encourage your father to focus on afterlife and how he can put efforts on being success ful in the consequences after death. Having good thoughts, reading good books, good helping behaviour towards self and others, trying to do as much good and trying to be as much good, even in small gestures creates a positive notion about life before death and after it. What he needs is counselling. For more details contact me in private section. Thanks.

I am being anxious to often. Is it normal for people of my age to be anxious when working in stress environment?
Yes it is very normal. Stressful enviroment sometimes drain us out of our resources making us feel anxious and burn out. Try to manage and organize your day to day activities, eat more fruits and green leafy vegetables. Exercise daily and do yoga/meditation. Keep a journal of stressful events- a thought diary. Find humor in situation and surround yourself with positive people. If there is any particular stress you can consult a psychologist always. All the best.

Greetings, How to quit smoking without getting effected on health? Advise the best and easiest way to do so Regards,

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Any time you quit smoking you will enjoy only good health and a long life. The withdrawal symptoms are relatively minor and you can handle it with some support and a lot of determination. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hi doctor good evening am 26 years old I was smoking in a day 5 to 8 cigarette but now I want reduce it I tried with nikotex but it didn't work out so can you help me with natural ways and my lips it's becoming dark day by day I use lip balm also so anything better than that.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, You may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAPHNE INDICA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. If you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Both are equally bad with negative effects on psyche. Stop sleeping tabs gradually as rebound effects can be worse than initial symptoms, every negative emotion surfaces. May be you do not need any medicines. Take a glass of warm milk with honey at bed time, watch soothing programmes on tv and listen to music, read good books. If day has been spent well while on the job, there is no reason that a person will require medicines to get sleep. Yoga and relaxation exercises do help reduce the stress & the stress in your case is that you do not get enough sleep. Remember some leaders at 65 + sleep only for 5-6 hours and work non stop for 18 hours a day.
