this is called inferiority complex. generally not only every one have the same feelings. but when compared to others you are very sensitive. every one is better in the world everyone feel like. if we are not settled or succeed up to that we have feelings like this. once you settled you have your own set of thoughts. that time you tell like that i am like, i dont like that like that you may talk. so, please study well first settle automatically your self confidence will delop. upto that please dont compare with others feel always confident, enjoy your good age of movements in every day. have a good day. best of luck.

I am 43 years old male suffering from ocd from 10 years now my daughter 12 years old is affected by this disease please help me.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Systematic desensitization in the case of ocd, in vivo exposure is explicitly combined with response prevention, in which the patient agrees to not engage in compulsions or rituals designed to reduce anxiety when exposed to an object that elicits obsessional fears or designed to control feared harmful consequences. Imaginal exposure imaginal exposure typically involves having the patient close his or her eyes and imagine feared stimuli as vividly as possible. Imaginal exposure has two general uses. The primary use is to help patients confront feared thoughts, images, and memories. For example, individuals with ocd may experience obsessional thoughts and images about causing harm to people they love if you want more details. Let me know.

Respected lybrate-user you cannot change it. Just focus on cleanliness & avoiding bacterial or other infection by using antiseptic soap for bathing & regular shaving of hair around genitals dear.

Hi, This is about my mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. So after going to many doctors we have seen that all doctor just repeat mostly the same tests and same medicines and I am very hurt to say this but all they want is money they don't care about patient as we are from middle class family money matters for us but money is nothing in front of my mother's well being and we are ready for treatment cost until they diagnosed her properly and do proper treatment. Please reply as soon as possible.

My answer to your query is: 1.My mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand See there are 2 main types of thyroid related problem one is Hypothyroidism where body does not produces thyroid Hormone sufficiently and another is hyperthyroidism where body produces excess of thyroid hormone in the body. You had not mentioned which thyroid problem your mother is facing among these.In thyroid problem level of serum T3, T4 and TSH always monitored and in conventional allopathic treatment accordingly doses are adjusted. Hence monitoring is very important in all thyroid problem. Shaking of hand and tremors may be because of continuous use of above mentioned medicine also. 2. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. This is the drawback of not getting complete information from site such as google. Of course early sign of parkison disease in most of the cases is tremor (that is also a characteristic pill rolling tremor of parkisons disease) but it is also associated with other signs and symptoms such as rigidity in muscles, slow movement of body, balancing problem, speech changes and also most important mask like face. So first confirm it. 3.Start Homeopathic treatment along with conventional medicines for long term effect without any known side effects as we after monitoring condition will stop the dosage in a time span.

Please understand that the schizophrenia is not fully curable. But you don't loose heart. Most of the symptoms of schizophrenia are body's natural defense mechanism. Psychotherapy, meditation and exercise combined with medicines should provide you good management opportunity.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

MCh - Neurosurgery, MBBS

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

Nervous Breakdown is not a medical term. It is connected to health problems associated with depression and anxiety. It often results from extreme stress and need medical help to overcome it. Although there are physical and emotional symptoms of this state of being, people often miss it. Here is a list of some common signs and symptoms related to nervous breakdown:

  1. It is hard to concentrate: It is often seen that a person finds it hard to concentrate when he is on the verge of mental breakdown. While a little stress helps in better functioning of the memory, chronic stress can prove to be lethal for the human mind and body. According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center, it is found that too much stress results in the secretion of a hormone called cortisol which deteriorates the memory.
  2. Food becomes your best friend: An increased level of stress makes the body release certain hormones such as adrenaline for a flight response. When this hormone wears off, cortisol asks the body to replenish energy from food. This hormonal reaction results in emotional eating. As a result of stress, certain high sugar items such as ice-cream and chocolate give a good feeling to the body. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association it was found that 40 percent out of 3000 individual seek pleasure in high fat high sugar items.
  3. An upset stomach: Often before nervous breakdown, many people report symptoms related to IBS. A patient might also go through certain other symptoms such as stomach aches, abdominal pain and diarrhea. These indicators are related to overwhelming stress more often than not. According to a recent study conducted by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, it is found that more than half the people suffering from IBS have anxiety or depression related disorder.
  4. Slouching becomes your favorite activity: Slouching is a major indicator of stress. A study conducted by the San Francisco State University in 2012 revealed that slouching drains more energy than skipping. Poor posture and depression is a common phenomenon in people suffering from anxiety and stress related disorder. If this is occurring way too frequently, it is time to consult a doctor and get professional help.
  5. A hyperactive nose: People with hypertension, anxiety, depression and stress often find themselves with a hyperactive sense of smell. A study conducted by the University of Wisconsin revealed that when a person is exposed to disturbing images of crashes or accident, he is often found to have a distorted sense of smell. Even neutral smells can be mistaken as foul ones by patients suffering from anxiety. If this sounds familiar, it is time to visit a doctor.

I lose my concentration in studies and lose sleep and appetite also. I have severe headache and it cause difficulty. Why this happened? What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I lose my concentration in studies and lose sleep and appetite also. I have severe headache and it cause difficulty. ...
You are seemingly stressed and to me it sounds like there could be unresolved anger. I recommend that you meet with a counselor who will help you sort this out. In the meantime follow some of these recommendations to improve concentration: 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear, you are unable to concentrate on your job simply because you are not doing your job sincerely. Passion towards job is to cultivated first. Love working, because work is worship. If you don't like the current job, quit it and go for a job you like, and then don't look salary, look for passion. Take care.

I am 34 Male, suffering with extreme anger and over thinking on small things and avoid but sometimes it is exploring. Do I have any medicine for the same apart from meditations? Thank you,

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Medicines are not required for anger until it causes destruction to others/objects. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything. Once you're calm, express your anger in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. Take a timeout. Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you. Consider seeking help from a psychologist if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose), nasal polyps (small growths in that lining), or a deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity). Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure , without any side effects.

Better to stress management techniques. Relaxing so much of time. Eating new food items. Visiting new places, spending most of the time with friends. Joyful environment. Create your own recreation channel. Take good diet. Do not eat night time food. Beaway of sugar content food. Take precautions even tea and coffee. Walk more time. Take regular medicine for sugar.

I lost the somebody last three years and I depressed and feel bad with my pleasure. What should I do?
It is very sad to lose someone who matters in your life and who is close to you. I can imagine how difficult it must be for you to live every moment. But please remember that life goes on. You are alive and you need to look after yourself if you want to survive. If you are doing something that pleases you then please go ahead and do it. You have a right to be happy in your life in spite of the loss of your loved one. Please understand that when you are enjoying your life now, you are not forgetting that person. Because of the circumstances the person had to go away. Try to cherish your pleasant memories with that person. Try to understand the love and the bond you shared, and be thankful for that. That person will never come back but will always be there in your memories. With this good feeling in your mind, move ahead in life. Take care.
