Dear Lybrate User, I think you are too conscious about your own self. I think you need to boost your self confidence and don't strive for perfection every time. Enjoy all the activities in life whether it is playing cricket, or eating food or sleeping. Look at all the good points life has offered you and enjoy each and every moment of life. You are very young, have a dream then make a plan to achieve that dream. Take small and firm steps towards your dream. You have to make your life healthy and interesting. Please understand that semen is produced in every healthy young adult male body, at regular intervals. It appears that you are not masturbating, hence the semen that is produced in your body, comes out automatically, at night. This is neither sexual weakness nor it is to be called "nightfall problem" This is very natural. Do not worry about it. You may talk to a Counsellor to get more awareness about your own self i.e. To know how your mind and body works and why physical and mental health are important. All the best.

I am suffering from HIV phobia? When ever I go for testing I fear I can catch it there. Now this anxiety is interfacing with my career and life. Is it worth to consult psychiatrist? How would they help me?

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. You must definitely meet a psychiatrist. Why? For the simple reason that this is a known psychological problem. Part of the problem is that one feels that the threat is real and hence does not recognise the utility of a psychiatric intervention; but the reality is such an intervention is useful and invaluable! Besides these theoretical points, in my own practical experience we have treated a number of such clients. So not only should you not hesitate, rather you must seek help at the earliest to avoid unnecessary prolongation of suffering. Take care!

Hello Dr, I am facing a set of problems off late though I am not sure if all of them are related. I am 30 year old software employee, married with a 5 year old kid. Back pain and weakness: Blame it on long distance daily to office or wrong postures while doing various things in a day. But end of the day I face lower back pain. Also, extremely tired at end of the day. Sometimes, I pass urine very frequently during the night. Say like 7-8 times with a gap of 5 mns between each time. Lack of concentration: I am unable to concentrate on any work at hand. Say, when if I start reading a book I immediately get distracted and leave the book in middle. This happens in any work I am doing. My mind is constantly changing gears on something else. This is leading to irritation and frequent mood swings which others around me do not understand. Sexual activity: I should admit, at a point of time I was porn addict. Off late I am not able to perform well during intercourse. The erection doesn't long enough. This is leading to embarrassing situations and also taking a toll on my confidence. God forbid, there has not been an adverse impact on my job/relationships thus far. But I am afraid, I am not feeling as confident as I always used to be. Please advice.

The pregnancy and the after care of a baby must have some unpleasant associations from your own childhood. You must investigate this with your parents and find out what might have contributed to this anger in childhood during your early years. For some people this can turn into a depression too. When you have found out from your parents you could accompany them to a counselor and explore the anger to deal with it once and for all. This aggression does not seem, fortunately, directed at the child but if it is getting too intolerable, you will need immediate assistance. But some vigorous exercise will help too to expend the energy of the anger so that, minus the emotion, it is easier to deal with the feeling. If you know of a lot of reasons that you are feeling like this due to family influences, then talk about this to a counselor soon. As far as possible avoid any medication for this situation unless it is absolutely necessary.

It sounds like you suffer from hysteria: using a wrong adaptation to solve a problem. It is fear based and therefore your search should be as to what you are afraid about and whether that fear comes from a recent event/s or a childhood event/s. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions. You also need to have a healthy constitution by exercising regularly, sleeping well, eating well, and staying free of stress. A stress management course will certainly be helpful. This fear is seemingly unmanageable so that it causes you to freeze or incapacitate yourself. Once you sort out the fear a lot of matters will come under proper control.

You will need to check that she is not suffering from some psychological problem. If she remains happy otherwise but doesnot show interest in sex, then talk to her- instead of insisting for an intercourse spend romantic time with her, talk to her a lot. If she is generally low on energy and sad, then you should consult a doctor.

Sleeping pills are very dangerous on longer run, sleeping pills will produce tolerance, shrinking of brain (early dementia), memory decline, personality changes like irritability, disinhibition, mood changes like worsening of depression, withdrawal seizures and respiratory capacity decline. It is wise to consult a psychiatrist, get treated for anxiety and take medicines which increase or act on neurotransmission meant your symptoms, which will be benefical on longer run, and also get you out of the symptoms. All the best.

1. If you have body pain regularly, it could be due to deficiency of vitamin d. 2. Get your blood tested for vitamin d and consult physician with report for advice and treatment 3. Expose yourself to sunlight for 15-20 minutes regularly in the morning.

What can I do my husband is get doubt for me. He says my affair with other man but its not true. Please advise.

There could be many reasons for him to doubt you. He might be prone to doubting people generally. Or he wants you to be within his control and this would be a good way to do that. Or some person has said something to him and he believes it. Whatever the reasons are, it would be impacting your married life as well as peace of mind. It would be important to go for marital counselling to clear out the air between the two of you. Sometimes other issues are also linked to doubting behaviour, like poor self esteem, feeling uncared for, suspicious nature etc. Counselling will help you both to voice such other aspects of hidden nature and improve the quality of communication between you two.

Whenever you feel nervous just take 10-12 deep breaths and calm down your mind. And start doing meditation too. This also helps in gaining confidence.

My age is 23. My mind is not working in sometimes. I forgot something easily. What happened to my brain. What I do to improve my brain power. Which doctor can I consult.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish)

One doctor told me that, if weight is lost due to chronic anxiety or stress, both LDL and hdl will fall. So my mind forces me to take anxiety or stress to reduce LDL cholesterol. I'm underweight, my weight is losing. But many doctors say that if weight is lost due to anxiety, hdl will decrease and LDL will increase.

Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, the perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear Sonali. Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and drugs ultimately affect and trigger the pleasure center of the brain. Whenever these substances are used, the pleasure center get activated. Then on habituation, the pleasure center asks for more and more of the substance, just because it gets pleasure. De addiction therapy can help the addict. Take care.

How can I increase my mental ability? Some times I forgot things suddenly help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are at an age where this is likely due to the effect of the male sex hormone, testosterone. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 junk food.

Hi doc,
from past few days m in depression please suggest what to do .quick .thanks.
Depression may affect all the people during some part of their life. In some people it comes and passes away soon whereas some individuals are not able to cope with the depressive situations of life and they continue to suffer which affects their physical and mental health.  Please make a note of it that it's a phase and it will pass. *it is necessary to take enough sleep to get relief from depression. Insomnia or loss of sleep is one of the important causes of depression. Therefore, people who lack sleep should calm down their brain by taking normal sleep. *you should go out with friends and enjoy in the company of others. Do not sit alone for longer periods of time. One should engage in several activities of recreation to get some entertainment. * Morning walk increases the supply of oxygen to the brain and it helps in removing the symptoms of depression. *Healthy food is very necessary to get relief from the state of depression. *drink more water to remove the waste chemical substances from the body. *Exercise also helps in the treatment of depression. *Yoga asana and mild exercise helps to increase the supply of blood to the brain and gives quick relief from depressive state of mind. Try following these ,and report me after 15 days .if need be felt we can go for some ayurvedic medicine s and counseling. You can consult me personally for that .

Dear lybrate user. Most of the back pain cases are due to mental, stress rather than actual spinal problems. Due to your prolonged sitting, the stres is also affecting yorur muscles. Just take an x ray to rule out spine problem. Then slightly changing sitting posture, exercise, walking for 5 minutes every hour etc will help you. Take care.
