Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Panic disorder is a condition that strikes without reason or caution and can be serious. Indications of panic disorder usually include sudden attacks of panic and anxiety, in addition to physical side effects, such as sweating and a pounding heart. During a fit of panic, the reaction is based on the circumstances, which may not be threatening in general, but triggers a feeling of panic. After some time, a person with a panic disorder builds up a consistent fear of having another fit of anxiety, which can influence the every day functioning and lifestyle in general. Panic disorder usually occurs alongside other conditions like depression, liquor abuse, or drug abuse.

You might experience the ill effects of a panic disorder if you:

  1. Encounter frequent, unforeseen fits of anxiety that are not attached to a particular circumstance or event
  2. Stress over having another fit of anxiety
  3. Are trying to avoid the places of your precious panic attacks

The most common symptoms of a panic disorder are as follows:

  1. Trouble relaxing and feeling uneasy most of the time
  2. Beating heart or abdominal pain with a feeling of nervousness
  3. Serious irrational and emotional fear
  4. Feeling as if you are out of breath
  5. Feeling as if you are being choked or smothered
  6. Dizzy spells
  7. Trembling or shaking
  8. Sweating constantly
  9. Feeling nauseous or having a stomach ache
  10. Shivering or numbness in the fingers and toes
  11. Sudden chills or hot flashes
  12. A fear that you are losing control or are about to die

While a single panic attack may just last a couple of minutes, the impact of the experience can leave a long lasting impression and make you susceptible to more such attacks. In case you have this issue, the repetitive fits of panic take an emotional toll. The memory of the fear that you felt during these attacks can affect your self-confidence and cause interruption to your regular day-to-day existence. In the end, this prompts to the following panic disorder effects:

  1. Expectant uneasiness: Instead of feeling like yourself in the middle of panic attacks, you feel tensed and on edge. This uneasiness originates from a dread of having future attacks of anxiety. This fear is seen more often than not, and can be extremely disabling at times.
  2. Phobic avoidance: You start to stay away from specific circumstances or situations. This might happen since you are maintaining a strategic distance because of your previous panic attack. On the other hand, you may stay away from areas where escape would be troublesome or help would be inaccessible in case you had a fit of panic.
  3. Medicines: Medicines can be used to control or decrease a majority of the side effects of panic disorder. Even if medicines do not form a part of the main treatment, when combined with other treatments, medicines are very effective. Eg. therapy and lifestyle changes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I am a 26 years old female . I have been having this issue of anxiety from past 2 yrs. I got married and live in a joint family. I also developed this tingling sensation on my left side which I believed was due to stress or anxiety. I am a very sensitive person and comments from people affect me. Eventhough my spouse takes good care of me I keep thinking about a few issues in the past and worry myself unnecessarily. I ve tried to stay positive. But I go back to getting anxious about the future. The tingling sensation is still there And I cannot seem to get rid of the negativities. I break things sometimes to calm myself. I ve consulted a neurologist but there is no nerve damage . I am taking nervijen but I keep experiencing the tingling or pain on my left side. Kindly advice on any medications.

This tingling feeling can be because of so much stress and anxiety. I feel if your husband is supportive then you do not need to think about others. Its a condition of every 2nd family. Problem come in life but we should not over burden our mind with that. Let people say what they want to say. You need to be focus in your life, do not affect your life because of others. Start doing things for your self. Spend more time with you and make your wishes ful fill. Work on yourself only and do things which make you satisfy.

The best way to deal with the situation is to keep taking a nice and deep breath which will help you stay calm and in control. Don't let their anxiety or excitement disturb you. In you look inside, you know how you did in the exam.Now it is time to simply accept it, and accordingly make a next plan. also, doing activities like listening to music you like, and watching a commedy movie or a tv show to keep yourself calm will also help. if it is not too hot at your place then going for a long walk in the evening might also help release the pressure and calm your nerve. If you wathc hindi movies then, remember Aamirkhan from three idiots and keep telling yourself "all is well". spend some time with friends, as they are in exact same situation like you, you all togather will be able to help eachother relax and be prepared for tomorrow. If you need any help once the results are out, feel free to contact me. wishing you best result tomorrow and very bright future ahead,

Know Everything About Asperger's Syndrome!

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
Know Everything About Asperger's Syndrome!

Asperger's Syndrome has recently come under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This syndrome usually affects the social skills of the patient, most heavily. The patient may seem normal and even intelligent at first glance. But on closer interaction, several social skill problems will come to the fore including an obsessive focus on certain topics and issues. Repetitive behaviour is also a part of this disease.

Let us find out more about Asperger's Syndrome:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms usually begin to show up early on in one's childhood. The patient will not be able to make eye contact while speaking with others. Also, a perfectly normal person may seem inordinately shy and reserved during social interactions. This awkwardness may come to the fore in the form of looking for expression cues on other people's faces and even the body language. The patient may not be a very happy and lively soul, with hardly a smile to crack at the funniest of jokes. The lack of emotions or the emotionally numb state is also a major giveaway of the condition. Other symptoms may include a strong aversion towards change in food habits and routine.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis is usually done by mental health specialists like a developmental paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist or even a paediatric neurologist. These specialists can put the child through a variety of tests that will study the neurological health as well as the speech and emotional behaviour of the child.
  • Educating the Parent: Once the diagnosis has been done, the parents of the patient will have to appraised of the condition and its implications. The symptoms and treatment will have to be duly discussed even as the parents are put through training and therapy to learn techniques with which they can help the child in progressing along more normal lines. The therapy will also help the parents deal with the challenge of living with someone suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that aim at fixing the specific areas and symptoms that the patient is learning to live with. Social skills training, speech and language therapy, CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other forms of treatment can help the child overcome many symptoms that come from this condition.

In the course of the treatment, it is important for the child, parent and therapist concerned to realise that there is no single approach that can be applied to all patients suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Individual care and therapy will be required for individual cases. At the same time, most of the skills will need to be repeated at home so that the child takes them more seriously.

It seems that your indecisiveness stems up from your childhood days and it has become an ingrained character in your personality. Our personalities are nothing but a set of well formed and practised behaviour. If you wish to change your indecisiveness and become independent, you have to take an initiative and start working on it. Consult a psychiatrist personally. Discuss on all your issues with a complete history of your complaints. A definite and planned rational emotive therapy course of few sessions would certainly help you. Good luck. Take care.

I am 20 years old. i can't memorise & concentrate in my study. What can I do?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Please help me am I having any probem

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be under a lot of stress. Are you aware of this? the dreams indicate the nature of the pressure i. e. They may be fear related. What are you afraid of to cause this much stress and how long have you been suffering from this condition? you are doing what is called discounting? a loss of awareness due to undue pressure. I suggest you sleep as much as possible on your left ear at night. Meet with a counselor and take that person? s guidance to go to the root cause and deal with it, effectively. You may also attend a personality development course, do regular exercise, meditate, sleep well, eat well, and deal with your emotions through therapy. If you are cooperative, everything should come back to normal pretty soon.

Hi, it's not known exactly what causes depression. As with many mental disorders, a variety of factors may be involved, such as: -people with depression appear to have physical changes in their brains -changes in the function and effect of these neurotransmitters -changes in the body's balance of hormones may be involved in causing or triggering depression. -depression is more common in people whose blood relatives also have this condition. There are other factors that seem to increase the risk of developing or triggering depression like traumatic or stressful events, childhood trauma or depression, history of other mental health disorders, abuse of alcohol or illegal drugs, serious or chronic illness, certain medications, certain personality traits. Untreated depression can result in emotional, behavioral and health problems that affect every area of your life. Examples of complications associated with depression include: excess weight or obesity, which can lead to heart disease and diabetes pain and physical illness alcohol or substance misuse anxiety, panic disorder or social phobia family conflicts, relationship difficulties, and work or school problems social isolation suicidal feelings, suicide attempts or suicide self-mutilation, such as cutting premature death from other medical conditions there are many medicines in homoeopathy for treating depression which is given on the basis and cause of depression as well as individualization of the case.

Hi lybrate-user, have an appointment with your doctor and he is the right person to reduce the dosage or change medication. At the same time talk to a counselor to know how to deal anxiety and depression. Changing life style, pursuing hobbies etc need to be included in your day to day activities.
