It's very frustrating and confusing when one of the partner appears to be very elusive of an intimate part of the relationship. Lack of intimacy does impact the relationship in many ways. Meet a sexologist and relationship therapist or a psychologist along with your wife to understand what's happening in the relationship and what's stopping your wife from indulging in intimacy. Don't ignore or delay thinking that time will make everything alright. The sooner you resolve this issue, the better it will be. All the best.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to my self all the time. Please help me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Please tell me what makes you anxious? past? present? future? career? economic status? health matters? anything else? let me know. Take care.

Good Afternoon ~ Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can be a very debilitating condition and having had it for so many years and being on medications she may have had some discomfort treated, however there will be gradual progression and the epileptic attack may have been related to her Ms. I believe that I need to review her reports before I can give you any answer with regards to her physical health or suggest medications.

Sir usually most of the time I am very calm and composed but sometimes I get disturbed even from small small acts of my family members which increases my temper. I get frustrated and talk to others in a way I should not. Later I think about that and gets upset that how could I do that.

Dear lybrate user. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

5 Things to Know about Chronic Pain

Aside from the obvious problem with chronic pain - there are many other downsides to chronic pain that are important to know about. For those living with and enduring chronic pain, pass this along to your loved ones to help them understand and be supportive.

1. Pain is rarely 'all in your head'
People in pain are often treated as if their pain is actually made up or greatly exaggerated. While it is true that pain is subjective (people simply perceive pain differently) and some people may report pain because they have other agendas - for the vast majority, the pain is real and present. It is not made up. The problem is that chronic pain is often caused by types of anatomical problems that are difficult or impossible to diagnose using standard medical tests, and pain cannot be diagnosed like other medical problems (such as a broken bone that can be seen on an X-ray).

Fortunately, most in the medical community are now trying to understand and appreciate that chronic pain is real and needs to be treated and managed differently.

2. Pain is not the only problem - it breeds other health problems
Thoughts and emotions related to the pain also can come into play and aggravate or alleviate the pain. For example,depression, which is a serious disease, can worsen the pain. Sleep problems again caused by the pain, can also make the pain worse. And increased pain usually leads to increased sleep problems.

Often all conditions related to the pain need to be treated concurrently in order for the patient to get any relief.

3. Pain is deeply personal
Everyone experiences and expresses pain differently. Any two people with the exact same health condition are likely to feel and express their pain in unique ways depending on a number of factors. Newer chronic pain theories now have physiological explanations for how and why people experience pain differently.

When it comes to back pain, this is especially true. Two people can have the same type of herniated disc, but one feels only slight discomfort and the other feels intense, burning pain that is unresponsive to conventional treatment. It is also not uncommon that no anatomical cause of the pain can be detected.

Why is this point important? It means that chronic pain often needs to be treated as the primary problem, which is different than the conventional medical approach of identifying and treating the underlying problem causing the pain.

4. Chronic pain is its own beast
Unlike acute pain, which functions as a warning signal (e.g. I just stepped on a nail - better move my foot!), chronic pain does not have any useful function. It just is.

Often, chronic pain is caused by nerves that continue to send pain signals to the brain. When dealing with chronic pain, often one of the most frustrating things is that there is nothing to 'fix'. It just exists in your body.

5. Chronic pain is LONELY
After awhile, many people with chronic pain - especially pain that is caused by a condition that cannot be seen - begin to feel isolated. Here the Internet has done a world of good helping people in pain connect with others in similar situations and find a supportive peer group through online communities of people in similar situations.

Having a clearer understanding of how chronic pain works, as well as the central role that the mind plays in the experience of chronic pain, is becoming more mainstream in the medical community. Patients who start to gain more understanding of their own chronic pain may also benefit in terms of gaining increased emotional support, more effective and sustainable pain management, and even possibly harnessing the power of their minds to assist in coping with the pain.

As you have understood the after effects of drinking 5 beers at a time, avoid drinking them together. Same is applicable for your love life. Choose the best of the two and emphatically tell the other about your feelings. Though you can not completely get rid of guilt. Be mature in future as your careless attitude can lead you to bigger trouble.

I shocked that 2 minutes call duration was there and she said I was given responsibility to her. I don't know doctor what is happening to me. I'm forgetting everything who ever giving information when i'm sleeping. This is not first time doctor I faced so many problems like this, so please provide solution to my disease.

You need to get your memory problems seriousy evaluated. You might require a MRI scan, EEG preferably sleep EEG and some tests for memory. Based on the results remedy can be suggested. Many people in particular cycle of sleep cannot recollect events afer awakening, so it need not always be abnormal. When you get call s like this, ask them to message or watsapp you the details and make it a habit early in the morning to check for the messages, for not missing anything. All the best.

How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

The risks and harms of smoking are pretty much common knowledge to most people. Especially when the pack of cigarettes practically screams it out to you in bold letters. Yet, as statistics would say, smoking in young adults has been on the rise in the recent years. What makes them take this step? Maybe it is peer pressure, or maybe they do it for the thrill of it. Every country takes a great initiative in educating their population, yet some fail to understand the complexity of the situation.

Here are some of the reasons that will tell you that even a single puff of the deadly tobacco can severely harm your health and general well-being

  1. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of cancer. It can cause cancer in most organs of the body. Smoking cigarettes can cause the following
    • Nose cancer
    • Throat cancer
    • Larynx cancer
    • Mouth cancer
    • Oesophageal cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Liver cancer
    • Cervix cancer
    • Stomach cancer
    • Kidney cancer
    • Colorectal cancer
    • Cervical cancer etc.
  2. Smokers are more prone to respiratory diseases because smoking is capable of compromising the immune system of the body.
  3. Autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to occur in smokers as their immune system is compromised by smoking.
  4. Smoking has been linked to diabetes type 2. This type of diabetes develops during adulthood. The more cigarettes a person smokes, the more likely is the person to develop this disease.
  5. Smoking puts you at risk of developing several heart diseases such as angina, heart attacks, etc. because the nicotine in the body results in the lowering of good cholesterol. This causes deposition of bad cholesterol in the arteries.
  6. Tobacco can cause tooth decay and several other oral problems such as gingivitis and other problems of the gum.
  7. Cigarettes constrict your blood vessels. This constant narrowing of blood vessels can cause erectile dysfunction in men and leads to the infertility in both men and women. It also makes them difficult to achieve orgasms.
  8. You might find yourself craving for cigarettes when you’re stressed out. This is because the effect of nicotine in the cigarettes is lowered by the hormone produced during a stressful situation, i.e. cortisone.
  9. Nicotine that causes momentary central nervous system stimulation can cause addiction and dependence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

I am mentally not stable. I forget things easily, can't take decision on my own. All time I think of one thing of loosing of one person in my life I am not able to forget what happened in my past life. What should I do?

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Consult a psychologist to deal with the deep rooted issue. You stay in past which is not a healthy place to stay in. You need to focus on present. Therefore, consult a psychologist and discuss each issue in detail. It will be confidential and prove beneficial to you. Practie Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult for same.

Is it any mental disorder that I get angry quickly and start to scold shout and after some times I regret for my behaviour and started to crying lonely, I get tears after watching any kind of little emotional scene . Some people call me that I am getting mad and need counselling.Please tell.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, you are not getting mad and you do not have any mental disorder. But what is happening is, your suppressed grief and sad feelings are coming to surface, the moment you see someone in pain. When you cry after watching an emotional scene, you are actually not crying for the characters in the movie/serials, but you are letting your own pain an outlet, by crying. You are experiencing your suppressed pain and hence you get emotional at the smallest trigger, and start crying. Your friends are right in saying that counselling will help you. Please consult a counsellor. The counsellor will help you to get in touch with your own suppressed sad feelings and and will help you to let it out. Once you do this you will have better emotional control. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
