I am a 26 years old female . I have been having this issue of anxiety from past 2 yrs. I got married and live in a joint family. I also developed this tingling sensation on my left side which I believed was due to stress or anxiety. I am a very sensitive person and comments from people affect me. Eventhough my spouse takes good care of me I keep thinking about a few issues in the past and worry myself unnecessarily. I ve tried to stay positive. But I go back to getting anxious about the future. The tingling sensation is still there And I cannot seem to get rid of the negativities. I break things sometimes to calm myself. I ve consulted a neurologist but there is no nerve damage . I am taking nervijen but I keep experiencing the tingling or pain on my left side. Kindly advice on any medications.

This tingling feeling can be because of so much stress and anxiety. I feel if your husband is supportive then you do not need to think about others. Its a condition of every 2nd family. Problem come in life but we should not over burden our mind with that. Let people say what they want to say. You need to be focus in your life, do not affect your life because of others. Start doing things for your self. Spend more time with you and make your wishes ful fill. Work on yourself only and do things which make you satisfy.

Dear, your mother could be disappointed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your mother disappointed in the near past? I think she is disappointed due to her health conditions. She needs your love and affection. Treat her as if she is your child and constantly motivate her. She could be sad because she fear to die and now tries to understand life and death. If you motivate her constantly, she may come back to life as a wise person. Take care. Convey my love to your mother.

Dear, please understand, depressive disorder is a neuro chemical disorder. Therefore even allopathic medicines don't properly work. The best combination treatment is allopathic medicines and psychotherapy. Please follow the prescribed methods strictly. I assure you, you will not get any further relief from any alternative medicine systems. Please don't waste your time and money. Take care.

In anxiety disorder conditioning, cognition and biology contribute in following manner conditioning: it is the previous experience that ascertains your next act. Eg: fear of dogs can be decreased by gradually exposing the stimuli (photo of dog, soft toy of dog) till brain gets conditioned to face the actual stimuli (dog) cognition: useful in behavioural therapy to correct the maladaptive thoughts to rational thoughts. Eg: fear of dogs. So changing the belief of generalised fear (to all dogs) to specific situation (past unpleasant experience with dog). Cognitively disputing that not all dogs will be harmful all the time. Biology: it's the amygdala in the brain that ascertains the fight or flight response and also the next response to similar situation. Eg: fear of dog. Neurochemical changes in amygdala can cause instant fear on exposure to any stimuli (of dog). This is where medications act and help to change the neurochemical problem.

It appears that probably you had post delivery depression after the birth of your 2nd child, which was not treated. You also might be having lots of sadness and grief which did not get any outlet, and hence, become more intese now. This is the reason you feel like crying all the time. I guess you have ptsd - post traumatic stress disorder. You might have experienced or heard about some traumatic events like, accidents, earthquakes, tsunami etc which were very devastating. As a child it affecred your mind and has left a strong impact on you. Probably you are very scared of losing someone close to you. You might be afraid of death. All this together is causing your anxiety and sadness. Please continue with the medication as the doctor's advice. Also take an appointment with a counsellor. Relieving your painful emotions which are suppressed till not will help you a lot.

I am sure there are other symptoms and this is rather serious and you should visit a doctor and a counselor and work with both in tandem for the best results. At her age, this may be more complicated but something can be done with medication and counseling.

I have more tension of about my work so how to reduce my tension and how to fill comfortable and energetic.

General Physician,

To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand". This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'cantered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late." 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash?" Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

Nothing went wrong in your life. At last you have found the true colour of your relationship partner. Just imagine, what would have you done if everything happened after your marriage or after you have a baby. Do not wait for your friends to turn up to your side to spend time for you. Spend your time engaging in any activities. Spend most of your time with family members. Hope and wait for the new and best relationship to turn. Whenever you think of making a call to him or thinking about him, just divert your mind by doing any activities or just watch tv. Make him feel sorry for losing you. Think this repeatedly that you deserve the best in your life.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hello, I would suggest that you take medication for a short time. That will help you control your symptoms. And while you are on medication, try other things I am suggesting and take proactive your to modify your life style and take charge of your life. Once you follow through regularly you will see positive changes in about 4 to 6 weeks. Once that happens you may consult your doctor again and explain him all that you are doing and try to stop medicine. It will work in your best interest. Both anxiety and panic attacks are manifestation of chronic stress in your daily life. Stress has become part of our daily life now. Due to being in this chronic stress there is lot of negative energy and thinking as well as behavior processes are triggered. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. But here, you are rather seems to be depressed.

I am a student, I want to concentrate on my studies but I sleep more. Any solution for this?

You may be going through a late onset of the growth hormone. Even so you can continue some stretching and light weight training to guide the growth to desirable directions. If this is the case the body will grow faster than usual. This spurt in growth will take away all the energy and make you feel exhausted. If not you may not be interested in your study course for various reasons in which case I recommend that you do an aptitude course and seek career guidance and opt for a course that is close to your heart and natural talents. Also at your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.
