Sweet pain means there is no severe pain. You are changed your attitude from three months. You have a guilty feeling anything happens. Then you go for check up. But it is normal. It means you are psychologically disturbed. When tests are normal. It is related to psychosomatic disorders. It need psychological counselling. You have a weakness to change your attitudes and suffers yourself. Better to develop strong attitude. Build a very good personality. Do not think too much about small things. Be share all your feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. If you want to healthy personality. Do not touch which is not suited to you. Walk more time take good food, take rest. Be spend most of the time with your close friends and family members. Be optimistic and positive. Be sociable. Be enjoy the every movement of life. Ok all the best.

I have a habit of smoking. But I have some breathing problems. I daily smoke 10-15 l. My age is 21.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
With the breathing problems you are in trouble if you continue smoking; and the quantity you are smoking is quite a bit. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also 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 also 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. 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. 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.

I am 44 years old and suffering from loss of memory or concentration and feeling blurred vision and the tendency of upside uric acid. And pain in sch older joint.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your mentioned symptoms have to be managed by a neurophysician. You have also mentioned high uric acid levels for which I can advise you. General recommendations are: - decreasing intake of red meat, alcohol, rice in your diet and other purine rich sources - also increase your water intake so that uric acid is excreted from body well. - keeping your weight to normal levels will also help you. - intake of fresh fruits, citrus fruits and cherries has been implicated in reducing uric acid values in the body as well. Nowadays there is a medication by the name of febuxostat which helps in lowering uric acid levels in body but kindly check out that it suits your body. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

It's completely your decision to continue having bisexual relationships but be ready to face consequences if ever your spouse knows about it. Homosexuality or bisexuality is a lifestyle and not a psychiatric disorder. To come out of homosexuality you have to decide for yourself what lifestyle you would like to choose, it becomes difficult when family and society don't accept the lifestyle. A homosexual or bisexual has no less dignity than others but most of these have anxiety or depression related to their orientation. These thoughts of anxiety and depression can be resolved by a psychiatrist or counselor.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Vinu, 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. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

I am seeing porn videos everyday! Is this a good thing, will it cause any effect to the mental behaviour?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
I am seeing porn videos everyday! Is this a good thing, will it cause any effect to the mental behaviour?
Watching porn once a day is not much, and definitely isn't addiction (unless it goes for hours and hours every time). A good indicator whether it's healthy or not, it's your feelings afterwards: if you feel good, then it's likely ok; if you feel bad or sad then it might be harmful. Porn can peacefully coexist with real life (and that's what happen for most people using it); you could even have a partner and still enjoy porn" on the side" every now and then. But, if you're escaping into porn instead of living real life, that's a problem. When we use something (anything) to escape from life, we're in trouble; if that's your case, seek help: talk with some friends, your parents, a mentor, or some professionals. On the other hand, if you enjoy porn a lot and - at the same time - you have a fulfilling, active and thriving real life, then do not worry and enjoy what makes you happy. And" happy" is the key here. Notice your feelings (both emotional and bodily) after you've watched porn: if you feel good, then it's most likely okay. If you feel bad, sad or unhappy, then it's a sign porn may not be healthy for you. Lastly, keep in mind porn doesn't represent reality. Yes, it's fun and you might learn some trick from it, but a good chunk of what you see in porn will never happen in your life. That's because porn is the visual representation of (average) male sexual fantasies. And fantasy is (more often than not) different from reality.

Causes And Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome

D.P.M(psychiatry) [Diploma in Psychological medicine] , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Jalna
Causes And Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome

Alien Hand Syndrome or AHS is a neurological disorder that causes the patient's hand to move involuntarily. The individual has no control over the movement of the hand and sometimes, he or she may not even be aware of the action! The patients often report feeling like their hand does not belong to them anymore. The disease has no cure but the symptoms can be treated and reduced. Usually the hand is kept occupied constantly by holding a light object. 

Causes of Alien Hand Syndrome: 
Though the exact causing factor of AHS is unknown, there are a number of instances which have been shown to influence the development of the condition. The chief factors are: 

  1. Brain injury: Injury caused to the brain by blunt force trauma or faulty surgery can lead to Alien Hand Syndrome. This is particularly seen if the frontal lobe (the brain center of voluntary movement) or the corpus callosum (the bundle of nerve fibers connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain) is affected. These are the areas that regulate motor functioning and the neural pathways to execute the actions. 
  2. Brain tumor: A tumor (a mass of abnormal cells) pressing on the motor centers of the brain can cause involuntary movements of the left hand in a right handed person. This is because the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body and vice versa. Tumors blocking the neural pathways usually cause errant movements of the predominant hand. 
  3. Neurodegenerative conditions: Diseases like Alzheimer's disease and Creutzfeld & Jakob Disease are characterized by memory loss, rapid changes in personality and growing defects in the central nervous system. AHS could be a complication of such disorders. Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome This is an extremely rare condition. There have been less than 80 known cases around the world since 1908. 

The disorder is often unreported because it is mistaken for a psychiatric problem due to its unusual symptoms and effects. 

  1. The patient may not even be aware of what his 'alien hand' is doing. The hand may even begin functioning of its own accord when the patient is asleep. 
  2. AHS can result in feelings of guilt and shame because of the embarrassing actions of the hand that the patient has absolutely no control over. The hand is often said to be governed by primal animalistic urges of hitting others, tearing clothes off etc. 
  3. The condition often leads to social anxiety, depression and paranoia
