Hello, I'm 37 year old male. Last year I had an inguinal hernia surgery. During pre-examination of surgery I had an anxiety which caused my BP 150/100, and ECG showed 110 HR (Sinus Tachardia), so Dr. started me 12.5 mg Aten25. Surgery was successful and I recovered very soon. Then after 3 months as I was getting married, so with consultation aten25 was tapered down within 2 months and then stopped completely because I never had such anxiety issue ever. After withdrawal had a anxiety and PVC issue for few days later on the frequency reduced and I'm feeling better. However, now I have started severe heart burn and also upper chest (above nipples area, both left and right) inflammation. The upper abdomen and chest area also have a inflammation. There is also a mild lower back pain. Below is the my overall symptoms list: 1. Upper chest inflammation and pain can be reproduce by gentle press at few places on chest area. 2. Heart burn and upper abdomen inflammation 3. continuous Shoulder and biceps pain with tingling in hand. Also, have started mild lower back pain. 4. However, I never felt breathlessness, No chest pain, I daily take a walk for 2.5 km (35-40 min) and no aggravation experienced. I wanted to know could this all be relating to heart disease? What diagnostic test should I take to get the root cause?

This is not heart disease. Try anti acid medicine and see if it brings relief. In inflammation affected area becomes red. You have pain and soreness in upper chest, but it may not be inflammation.

Manic Depressive Disorder - How To Know If Someone Is Suffering From It?

Manic Depressive Disorder - How To Know If Someone Is Suffering From It?

Manic depression, also known as bipolar disorder in recent days, is a major mood disorder characterized by hypomanic or manic episodes (deviation from one's usual mood along with abnormally high energy levels). Mania involves sleeplessness, along with psychosis, hallucinations, rage, grandiose delusions or paranoia. Mania or hypomania isn’t usually harmful to the patient and they might exhibit increased capacity for work and creativity. Depressive episodes however, can be debilitating and often life threatening as the person becomes self-destructive and suicidal in many instances. 

The extent of mood swings can vary from extreme to very mild. They can occur progressively or suddenly and might last for few days to weeks. Patients affected by bipolar disorder may experience disturbances in thinking apart from depressive or manic episodes. Distortions of perception and impaired social functioning are also not uncommon. The cause of bipolar disorder is not fully understood like most mental health conditions and is often thought to be hereditary.

The extent of the seriousness of the bipolar symptoms varies from person to person. In some people, the disorder is not full blown and they don’t exhibit all the symptoms. Others who aren’t that lucky might have to be hospitalized multiple times in their lives as the symptoms creep into their work and personal life and make living a normal life a tough challenge. 

Psychotic symptoms such as disorganized thinking, hallucinations and delusions might make a person do things that demand the urgency of hospitalization to keep them safe from their suicidal impulses. These symptoms might need to be urgently addressed by a psychiatrist and with the help of medications, the person might be able to regain control of their lives.

The symptoms of bipolar disorder are many and can be mainly categorized into two (sometimes overlapping) categories of mania or hypomania and depression:

Manic symptoms include: 

  1. Grandiose delusions (delusion of grandeur) 
  2. Racing thoughts which are often disconnected
  3. Sense of euphoria or false elation
  4. Irritability without cause
  5. Hampered social functioning
  6. Increased sexual inclination and risky sexual behavior
  7. Hyperactivity
  8. Increase in talking volume or speed
  9. Impaired judgment
  10. Reduced sleep requirements owing to extra energy levels
  11. Increased productivity and creativity

Depressive symptoms include:

  1. Abnormal eating patterns like over or under-eating to the extent of severe medical complications accompanied by drastic changes in weight
  2. Difficulty in concentration, making decisions and remembering
  3. Lack of energy or fatigue 
  4. Contemplating about death for prolonged periods of time and suicidal behavior
  5. Oversleeping, insomnia or early awakening
  6. Persistent pessimism 
  7. Irritability and restlessness
  8. Feeling of hopeless and negative attitude

Mood stabilizers, such as lithium are commonly employed to treat bipolar disorder. Anticonvulsants, benzodiazepines and anti psychotics can also be used in the treatment. Along with medications, support from family and friends is of the utmost importance as they need to help provide all the support required in making the person functional and healthy.

Hello Chandu! Anxiety does cause irritation in bowels. You need to practice meditation to resolve this issue. No medication is required.

It is not uncommon to feel depressed after a loved one, especially a mother's, death. Although heartbreaking I must, as a psychiatrist, say that a week has passed and it seems like you have not moved on. It is very hard to get over the fact that your mother is not with you physically. However, lingering over the fact and becoming depressed is something that needs to be addressed at this point - since it has been 1 week since the incident happened. I hope you book an appointment with me as soon as possible. You can text, call or book an appointment to talk over the webcam if you wish. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

You seem to have panic disorder but the treatment you are on can only give you relief of panic attacks for a duration of few hours after taking the medications. You need to be on a proper medication to treat panic disorder. Please consult a psychiatrist, who can help you with your problem.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Lybrate-user nobody life is not easy, you r too much in stress, in this world nobody has time to think about others, so do not care what other think about u, first you should have to keep your clear and simple, do not over do the things and do not expect from others, now you r pregnant if you will not be happy your unborn child will not happy and may suffer, so think about him no body else, keep your mind clear and avoid cluttering in mind, one thing you shud discuss with your he shud find out any job at any cost, you have to compel him. Rest take nutricious diet for child, 45 minutes walk with fresh air and good sleep in night. Mind it you have to compel your husband to find out some job immmedeately for the sake of your children god blesss.

CycleBeads lets you know when you can get pregnant by identifying 12 potentially fertile days each cycle – Days 8 through 19, where Day 1 is the first day of your period. These 12 days take into account the 6 days when pregnancy is possible as well as the variability in the timing of ovulation from one cycle to the next. Surveys of women using CycleBeads to get pregnant show that they are highly successful, with more than 80% of women getting pregnant within 6 months and the vast majority achieving pregnancy within the first 3 months of trying to conceive.
