You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. 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.

I am Mbbs student 1st year, I get angry without any reason. What medicine can I take?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a 'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction. Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the wellbeing of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets. So here are a few ways to deal with extreme anger. 1.Approve it / Acknowledge it: The first step in solving a problem is recognizing that you have one. The fundamental problem here is that people believe they are on the right track and refuse to budge from their views. It is essential to realize that this step is not about deciding whether you are right or wrong, but acknowledging the fact that your reaction to the situation can be channelled in a better way. When getting someone to acknowledge their anger problem, be careful as to not use negative words like wrong, false and shouldn't. Instead, influence with positive words like can and should. Instead of saying 'You are wrong to react like this' you can say, 'I understand what you are feeling. Is there a way we can resolve this situation? 2.Understand / recognize the signs: Once you know that your problems exist, you can try devising ways that will work for you in dealing with the situation. You can count to 100 to calm yourself or simply decide to not speak until you can calm yourself. Knowing that you may enter into an argument in a situation, you can list down the points that you feel strongly about and discuss each of them one by one. Working your way through a finite list gives a better opportunity to reach closure at the end. 3.Free the mind/Find ways to let it go: Not all arguments end in closure. A lot of unsaid justifications cloud our mind repeatedly leaving us seething from the inside. Research has shown that the normal or neurological anger response lasts less than two seconds. Beyond that it takes a strong will to stay angry. Once you realize how much your anger is consuming your mind, decide to free your mind with meditation and other calming exercises. Tell yourself that some people and issues simply don't deserve your anger, emotion, reaction or time. If you or someone you know is suffering from anger management issues, consult a doctor today.

Better go for a psychiatric evaluation by a paediatric psychiatrist/clinical psychologist to rule out any developmental disability. Early intervention is half cure.

I can not concentrate on one aim. I am confused about my choice, my goal. I am still searching myself.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Please do an aptitude test and go for career counseling to a qualified counselor and get proper guidance for your future. You will get out of this dilemma soon and will be able to concentrate on building your life in the right direction. You may not get to finalize the ultimate goal but since that is a work in continuous progress you will get to modify goals as you go along. But it is important to identify your current goal and settle down with all your efforts and energy focussed on that particular end. You will be at peace and your inputs will reward you with pleasant results.

You and your mom need to express your grief around the loss of this family member completely. A father and husband are a great loss for the both of you and that vacuum that he has created can never be filled adequately by anyone else. And the loss is, therefore, permanent. You need to talk about him and all the experiences he had brought into your lives to exhaust it out pf your system. Then gradually you will learn to accept it and come to terms with it too. This is a gradual process and at the end of it, you will have accepted the reality and can move on with your lives. If it is too intense, meet with a counselor and deal with it. It is better to deal with it now than to let it come up much later, which will affect your lives adversely. You will probably have to become the man of the house if there is no other male around. You will soon move on but for your mom, the loss is more difficult to handle. You must be there for her and support her extensively to come out of the grief.

3 Types of Psychiatric Disorders That Can Be Passed To You in Genes

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
3 Types of Psychiatric Disorders That Can Be Passed To You in Genes

The risk of a mental illness increases if one or more of your family members have a mental disorder, but this increased risk doesn't guarantee that you will develop a mental illness. Not only have some mental illnesses been found to be hereditary in nature, but certain studies have found that some major mental illnesses can be traced to the same genetic variations.

Some hereditary psychiatric disorders are:

1. Obsessive compulsive disorder


Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is a disorder of the brain and behavior. A person suffering from OCD has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts and behaviors they cannot stop repeating. Ocd also causes severe anxiety in such people. In 2000, a study conducted by researchers in Washington d. C. And Baltimore concluded that having one or more ocd family member (s) may increase the chances of you developing it too. In 2010, a study tracked down possible chromosomes that may be responsible for OCD.

2. Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness that affects and dictates how a person feels, thinks and behaves. Those suffering from schizophrenia may lose touch with reality and experience delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders and movement disorders. It has been seen that people who have an identical twin with schizophrenia are 50% more likely to develop the disorder and those who have one parent suffering from schizophrenia are 18% more likely to inherit the illness.

3. Depression

Major depression or clinical depression is a common though severe mood disorder. It is characterized by an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that last at least for two consecutive weeks. Those suffering from depression may feel helpless and worthless, lose all interest in daily activities or activities they used to enjoy and feel unable to take part in normal day-to-day activities. Other symptoms of depression also include sleep pattern and appetite changes, chronic fatigue, concentration or focus problems and physical discomfort. Some patients with depression may become suicidal.

In 2011, a study pinned down a specific chromosome that may trigger depression development. Research on the hereditary properties of depression within families shows that some people are more prone to develop the disorder than others. If you have a parent or sibling that suffers from depression, you might be 1.5 to 3 times more likely to develop depression than those who do not have a close family member suffering from this condition. You are also more prone to developing bipolar disorder in such a scenario.

Dear Naveen, Unless i know what is the chemical name and dose of your hair fall drug, i can not answer your question. There are many drugs which interact with alcohol - sometimes increasing its effect,sometimes decreasing its effect. However Naveen, why don't you stop drinking for the sake of your hair now. Think, decide and stop. Take help if necessary - medical help is there to control withdrawal symptoms, to reduce craving for alcohol, even making you to hate alcohol.

I have been suffering from anxiety for last few days and was having sleep related problems. So I consulted a neurologist. And he prescribed nexito forte tab. To me. After having it for 2 weeks my anxiety problem was gone. But after a few months the anxiety problem is coming back again. So should I continue having nexito forte? Does it have any side effects?

Psychologist,
Tablets will only remove the symptom and not the underlying cause. Anxiety is worrying about the future and not feeling prepared for it. You can talk to a counsellor who can help you to feel more prepared about the issues which make you feel anxious and help you find your strengths and work upon your limitations. It will also help you assess situations more objectively, weigh the pros and cons of each option and help in wise decision making. These skills will help you to tide over any future situations also which could be potentially stressful for you.

Nothing to worry , because of excessive feeling of stress and anxiety these symptoms will develop. Better to take homoeopathy medicines to reduce these symptoms permanently. Avoid sugary food and take vitamin d foods like fish, milk; omega 3 fatty acids like nuts along with medicines. You may consult a homeopath.

Quetiapine is an antipsychotic with marked sedative effects. Losing balance may be attributable to quetiapine, but without knowing the full background, I cannot confirm. Pacitane is used to treat tremors induced by drugs or other diseases such as Parkinsons disease. Benfomet is vitamin B1 so it cant cause these symptoms. Please give us full details of your father's condition so that we can help you better. Please bear in mind that excessive sleepiness and dizziness in the elderly is very dangerous because it can result in falls leading to a number of other complications. Take care!

Recently I got fired from my company just because of my angerness I really dont know what should I do I feel like no body can understnad me I dont know why always people shows that I am the one who will never right decision in life. Please help

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
That can be very difficult for you if you feel that nobody is needing you. But if you are doing something good, then why are you letting their description of you affect you. Stay connected with how you define yourself rather than how the world defines you. The world will always have an opinion on everything. So will you let it affect you all the time? yet, let me point out that showing anger is counterproductive especially if it' s out of context and out of place. People see it as anti social and unproductive behaviour. At the workplace, you need to be careful of showing your anger. Do learn healthy ways to express your anger. This can be learnt in counselling with anger management sessions. As far as the boy friend goes, if he' s ignoring you, then are you making yourself available all the time and he' s taking you for granted or are you throwing your weight around and controlling him? what I am trying to say here is that if he' s behaving in that manner, then what are you doing to bring this behaviour out from him. You need to be self aware and be empathetic to other people' s needs as well as your needs. All this can happen in counselling, which will help you to control anger, gain self confidence and control over self expression along with a boost in self esteem.
