This is due to all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

It happens from 7-8 days.
All body pain can be due to Nutritional Deficiency like low vitamin D3 level along with Vitamin K2 / Magnesium. It can be due to several other reasons like Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome etc. Get yourself evaluated by a Good Orthopedic Physiotherapist and a Orthopedic Surgeon/ MD Medicine Specialist to rule out Hashimoto's Hope it helps.

Bipolar Disorder: Symptoms, Diagnosis And Treatment

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Bipolar Disorder: Symptoms, Diagnosis And Treatment

Bipolar disorder is also known as manic depression. This usually sets in low and high moods in a person along with changes in energy and sleep.

People with bipolar disorder tend to have periodical changes; sometimes they are over happy and other times they might feel sad, depressed and hopeless. Between these changes they are normal. The highs and lows are considered as extreme poles of moods, thus the name bipolar disorder.

Manic term is used when a person with bipolar disorder is highly excited and feels confident. Also, feelings of irritability and recklessness along with irrationality might occur. Some people with mania might have a hallucinations that is they see and hear things that are not there, along with delusions.

The term hypomania is used to describe mild symptoms of mania, in which a person does not have hallucinations and delusions and the symptoms do not interfere with their daily life. Similarly, the term depressive is used to describe a person's time when they feel depressed or sad.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

  • The highs and lows in a bipolar disorder do not follow any set pattern. One might feel manic or depressed for hours or days or weeks, months and even years together, before they actually switch to a happy mood. The severity depends from person to person and also changes with time by becoming less or more severe.
  • Symptoms of mania or the high are extreme excitement, change from being happy to angry and irritable along with restlessness, speech is rapid with low concentration, less sleep and increased energy, grand plans, alcohol and drug abuse and impulsiveness.
  • Symptoms of low or depressive phase are lethargy, worthlessness, feeling of sadness and hopelessness, lowered concentration, irritability, loss of sleep or excessive sleeping, loss of appetite and suicidal tendencies.

Diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder

  • In case someone exhibits symptoms of bipolar disorder, then talking to a psychiatrist or a doctor helps. Doctors ask questions related to the mental illness and the associated concerns. Diagnosis is basically recognizing the symptoms of the person, whether they are due to some underlying cause or mood swings because of excessive alcohol. The symptoms have to be noted and the duration, for which they last along with the severity should all be noted. The most obvious symptoms are that of lows and highs in mood and changes in behavior, energy, sleep and thoughts.
  • Consulting a doctor or talking to family and friends helps to differentiate the symptoms of bipolar disorder from unipolar disorder.

Treatment

  • Medicines that have mood stabilizers, such as lamotrigine, valproate, lithium, carbamazepine and antipsychotics such as olanzapine, quetiapine should be taken. Psychotherapy is also recommended. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Eat well and sleep well. Be a strict vegetarian, drink cow's milk in night about three hours after dinner on alternate days (about thrice a week ). For sleep, Everyone knows that sleep is very important for maintaining a good physical and mental health. However, the duration of your sleep is just as important as the way in which you sleep. Your sleep position can influence your health, help in keeping your skin look young, and improve your digestive health. Furthermore, sleeping on the left side of your body can even save your life. If you are currently sleeping in another position, keep reading to find out why you should start sleeping on your left side right now. There are several sleeping positions – your front, your back, your left side, and your right side – and they all affect your health. Sleeping on the back can be particularly dangerous for people with sleep apnea or asthma, because it can cause breathing difficulties. Sleeping on the right side is likely to worsen digestion problems, whereas sleeping on the left side may improve digestive symptoms.

Sibling rivalry is very much a part of growing up together with your sister. When she was not born, you got entire attention and love from the parents. After her birth, suddenly you became" senior" and" didi" you might not have liked the reality that your parents attention and love got divided. As we all grow up, we start losing our innocence. So when you started losing your innocence may be she was still small and hence parents were more attached to her. There is a possibility that there are certain physical or emotional traits in her, which you probably think you do not have and hence that can be one reason of your jealousy. Please understand that you may not have certain things that she has, but then you also may be having certain strengths which is lacking in her. Each person is unique. Understand you strengths. Try to improve upon your skills so that you feel more confident and feel good about yourself. Observe your parents, they might be expressing their love for you in a different way. As an elder sister you will have certain privileges and responsibilities - enjoy that. Try to make a strong emotional bond with your sister by taking an initiative to help her. You will see how she will learn to reciprocate and then there will be no reason for jealousy.

You have mental distraction. Find Out what it is and try to focus on your studies. You have to sort out all these problems before you sit for study. Be fully concentrated on your study tasks. Categorize. Keep the problems in front of you /solve questions of previous exams/

What is making you feel so weak inside- try to gain strength from the beautiful relationship you had with your loved one.- this loving relationship itself will give you the strength to go on. Be the person your loved one always wanted you to be. Give someone else around you a reason to smile, someone who has not been so lucky as you to have enjoyed a loving companionship. The more love you spread in the memory of your loved one, the more you will be thankful to god for having sent such a nice person in your life, no matter for whatever little time- at least you had someone close. Think of those who are so lonely that never experience what god gifted you! so, bring smiles on people's faces and you will be smiling in return! god bless you,

Loss of interest in sex can be due to medication or depression. If it is due to depression it will improve with venlor xr, otherwise it will worsen. Antidepressants without effects on sex are available such as bupron, trazonil, vilano and so on. Consult a psychiatrist on this!

Dear lybrate-user. This feeling is actually called infatuation. You should understand the situation. You can engage in sex with the guy, but I will not advice it. You don't have to think about marriage now. Within few days, these obsessive thoughts will pave way for more serious career related thoughts. You are having' crunch' now. This is normal. Take care.

Hello I don't understand what is going with me: I am really very sick I think. I am getting anger very earliest. And saying anything to one who is taking with me! I can't understand anyone. I am feeling like I should die.

Psychologist,
You seem to be hurting from something in the past or having worries about the future. In any case you are probably using anger as a quick fix to reduce your emotional disturbance which is actually more detrimental for you as well as your relationships. Anger is a secondary emotion and hides many primary emotions like sadness, fear, anxiety, embarrassment etc which the person doesn't want to show as their self esteem can be hurt by this. I suggest that you explain your anger or whichever emotion that you are actually feeling and talk about it. This is called assertive talking. You can learn this in counselling how to explain your anger and talk about it, how to show your anger without damaging your relationships ships and your health. How to draw boundaries with people who hurt/ make fun of you. Also remember that people are very different from you and will have different opinions, perspectives, thoughts and prejudices about the same topic. So you need to develop tolerance, understanding and acceptance for these differences because no one is right or wrong. There multiple ways of solving a problem or doing things. You need to live harmoniously in society with people for your own survival needs. So adjustment and flexibility of thoughts is a desired quality to lead a peaceful and purposeful life.

Hey, I am 18 years old. I am very shy when surrounded by people. I get really angry at my mother. I always had this hatred towards her. Even when I was a kid.

You need help immediately before this turns out to become ugly. There is obviously some reason from childhood that has triggered this feeling and needs investigation and resolution. At your age, this may be compounded with hormonal productions, which will tend to spurt in quantity and lead to complications. During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone, there are three identified features that present itself over which you have little or no control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you has unresolved childhood issues, like I think you have, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. If you are losing self-control you are likely to have all fo these symptoms and need professional help right away. You can discuss this with your parents and get their help, how much ever you hate doing this.
