I lost my family in last year and so these is the region I am in very depression.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

please tell me, I have to study, but when I study I fall asleep. What to take? To not to fall asleep. Please tell me.

Get some exercise. More oxygen intake will keep you fresh. Have a glass of water before sitting down to study. Set a time limit for yourself- to finish a topic or a set number of questions. Reward yourself with something you like to do or eat. Set next target and go ahead. Probably what you are doing is not important for you, that's the reason you are laxed and sleep. Make your studies important for you- you will not feel sleepy.

Hello sir I have a habit of rocking back and forth. And it is not related with anxiety or depression. I do it all day whether im happy or sad or depressed. Please tell how can I stop it. Many doctors just say take small steps to avoid this habit. But they do not understand that I can not. My body moves involuntarily. I have no control. Suppose I try to stop I become restless and after few seconds body moves itself. There is no doctor nearby I can consult for therapy or medicines. Please help. Reasons I want to stop: 1. I spend all day home doing this as it is soothing. But this had made me a person with social anxiety which make me depressed. I have read on internet about this. 2. I cannot study without it. So I can not go in a good college out of my hometown as I can not share room with anyone in hostel nd without hostel life is not enjoyable. Hope you understood. This ruined my career. Made me depressed. If I still get any help I will drop a year and go on in my life. Hoping for a great answer. Please.

Your beginning and end of question do not correlate at all. At the beginning you say your movements are not related to anxiety and depression. But towards the end you yourself commit that you are depressed due to your inability to constrol these movements and feel anxious in social surroundings. That has even kept you away from attending colleges and staying with people in hostel. Dear Nitin, I think that is good enough reason for you to understand that these movements have become an obsession and compulsion for you to get rid of restlessness that prevails if you don't do it. You definitely need a consultation. Visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity with complete details for treatmnet. In case you need assistance online you may contact me.

Hi I am in constant fear of dying. I cannot enjoy what I used to do before. I did my ecg few months back it showed sinus tachycardia bt flattening inflat leads. So I consulted cardiologist and he told that was because of the anxiety. But the symptoms which I am facing are same like heart attack. I feel nausea on some days and some days it better. But the doctors say thats because of acidity. On some days there is chest pain and sometimes I have tingling in the fingers of hand. When its good I do not feel anything. And suddenly I start googling about the symptoms and start worrying. What could be the reason?

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Panic disorder is a phenomenon wherever a person gets attacks of anxiety and has restlessness, palpitations, choking sensation, tingling numbness, fear of going crazy, excess sweating and fear of dying. It is an learned behavioural response which the body gets habituated. Although the symptoms resemble cardiac or asthma attacks, there are normal findings on various reports and consultation. Panic disorders can be treated by medications and behavioral therapy. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for help.

What to reduce my stress&control anxiety,emotions? Please suggest any techinques are available.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
You need to know the cause of your stress and anxiety first. Everyone goes through stress, but anxiety occurs when a person is unable to exercise enough control over the direction and intensity of the thoughts. Telling yourself that what you are thinking is not really going to happen( if it's an irrational fear) and collecting evidence to disprove it, will help you to offset some anxiety. Knowing your personal strengths and using them to manage stress is a good method. Positive thinking will help you a long way on this journey. Meeting people who are cheerful, positive and progressive will be of immense value. Try to learn critical thinking and problem solving techniques. Exercising, yoga, meditation, walking in open air, diet, sleep all play a big role in controlling stress and anxiety. You could meet a counsellor in your city who can help you to overcome negative thinking and find your personal strengths.

We are married before 1 year and our relationship is good. But she has a concern with my family members from the start. She always have perceptions towards my family. I tap my wife's phone for some calls and I found her mother guide her wrong. They talk about me and my family very irrespectfully and some time abuse us on phone. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First of all do not ever tap into your wife?s phone calls. Besides, it is bad manners and absolutely unethical and reflects a lack of trust. You are already suffering from depression and to know your wife?s personal conversation will certainly upset you because she has a close bonding with her mother from the time of being in her womb! If your relationship with her is good, that is all that matters. Since you are hardly married for a year, you must give her time to adjust with your family. I hope you are not living with your family too. Then the adjustment will take a lot of time. There will always be differences between your family and hers. Some of these differences will be difficult to stomach and some with be easy. If you discuss the problems with her and explain the situation, it will be better and will work out smoothly. The first two years of a marriage should be spent with each other alone because there are a lot of things to be worked out between the young couple. At that time you do not need other family members to be around and cause more distress. In fact, if it is your family, they would naturally be biased towards you and will take your side. Then your wife will feel ostracized and it will cause a lot of discord between you two. You need to respect those differences that are bound to crop up but do not use it to increase the conflict. Yes, she should not use these problems to get back at you. Fortunately she is discussing and even cursing your family in the privacy of her conversations with her mother, which I think is okay and she can be given that margin. We need to respect her privacy and let her have her say with whatever she condemns as long as she does not use it openly to your family.

During ct scan I was found with liver enlargement. I take alcohol regularly. What is the treatment.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Quitting alcohol is the only treatment. If you do not quit alcohol, it will not help. It is like you are trying to heal a wound, but at the same time cutting it with a blade. That is the truth which has to be understood. Quitting alcohol needs a combination of personal motivation, medicines and psychotherapy. Medicines of different kinds are useful: one, to reduce the symptoms associated with stopping alcohol (tremor, sleep, anxiety, irritability, anger); two, to reduce craving or desire to drink; three to reduce the damage caused by alcohol in the body and four to make alcohol taste bad. Psychotherapy is designed to increase the motivation to quit and once you have quit, designed to keep you away from alcohol. Please consult an expert psychiatrist at the earliest to put all these into practice. Certain blood tests will also be needed to assess your physical condition. Take care!

You have growing pain. Do breathing exercise and yoga. Warm up before running slowly. Eat a balanced diet. Sleep well. Relax in your mind. Never say you cant do it. Learn under a physical trainer.
