It is not unusual for a doctor to become attracted to you and in his attempt to control himself he may be losing it. This is my assumption and I am guessing all this from the information you are saying. If in case this true and you are uncomfortable, you should insist on visiting him only in the company of your mother or father or a friend. This will prevent any such nonsense and make him act professionally. You also need to be curt with him and ask him if what he is doing is professional and required for your treatment. You need to be careful, especially if it goes out of control. If it seems, in anyway, nearing such a possibility then the responsible thing to do is to change the doctor: there are plenty of those professionals all over and they are good too. You have to be responsible and act before anything can develop beyond your control. Be proactive always.

Hello sir,  my age is 19 year and my height is low 4'9" My mind concentration is low and I have not remember anythings.
We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 6 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines.

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,

I am 21 year male and from the childhood itself I was affected a lot by abuse and fighting between my parents. I am very sensitive person and last year the girl I loved the most rejects me. I was so depressed. For the past few months I was lack in empathy. And I am feeling like a matured person. Does this a sign of maturity or sociopathy. But I had my love towards animals and kids. I think I lost my sensitivity. Does this good for me or not.

Everything should be in moderation including your sensitivity. You cannot be a sociopath for these reasons, so do not worry. You are a long way from maturity and that is an ongoing process. But you should meet with a counselor and talk about the disturbances you have experienced during your parents' fights and arguments from childhood. There could be some effects especially emotionally and that learning will help you a lot to become mature and handle yourself with composure. If these influences are affecting your relating to girls could also be identified and sorted out.

It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgiveable. But you say you cry every night, and you have lost so much of weight and friends that it seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that suicidal thoughts are also plaguing you, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

All you need to know about Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS)

DPM Gold Medalist - , MD Psychiatry Gold Medalist - , MBBS

Ask Free Question
Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome is the name given to the symptoms seen in you if you consume heavy doses of alcohol frequently and then suddenly quit or reduce your alcohol intake considerably. These symptoms may surface anytime between six hours to a few days after you last drank.

Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome:

Hallucinations
Fever
Nausea
Tremors
Anxiety
Vomiting
Immense sweating
Insomnia
High blood pressure
Sweating

All these symptoms may worsen over a few days and may even last till a few weeks.

What is the root cause?

Alcohol arouses your nervous system. In case you are a heavy drinker, your body gradually gets dependent on alcohol, and cannot adapt too easily to the lack of alcohol after you have abruptly quit. This is the root cause of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS).

Who is at risk?

You are at the maximum risk of AWS if you are an alcohol addict, or you cannot gradually cut down on its intake.

How do doctors diagnose AWS?

Usually, doctors will search for a few symptoms in you, like irregular heart rate, dehydration, fever, and tremors or minor fits. A toxicology screen also helps your doctor finding out the levels of alcohol in your body.

How is AWS treated?

Treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms. Usually are:

1. Home Care-

Mild symptoms of AWS can be treated at your home. You need to go for your regular routine checkups and tests. You may also have to go to rehabilitation programs for recovering alcoholics.

2. Hospitalization-

If your symptoms are more severe, you may have to be treated in a hospital, where you will be monitored and kept on a fluid diet to help prevent dehydration.

3. Medications

You can also be treated with sedatives.

Do you recover fully?

Usually, chances are that you will fully recover from AWS. If you quit drinking, take your medicines on time, and lead a healthy life thereafter. However, sleep disturbances and fatigue may persist. But, if you have severe symptoms of AWS, you should seek medical care as soon as possible to prevent any further fatal complications.

Is memory loss always a part of aging? how much loss is considered normal?

Is memory loss always a part of aging? how much loss is considered normal?
The brain is capable of producing new brain cells at any age, so significant memory loss is not an inevitable result of aging. But just as it is with muscle strength, you have to use it or lose it. Your lifestyle, health habits, and daily activities have a huge impact on the health of your brain. Whatever your age, there are many ways you can improve your cognitive skills, prevent memory loss, and protect your grey matter. The hippocampus, a region of the brain involved in the formation and retrieval of memories, often deteriorates with age. Hormones and proteins that protect and repair brain cells and stimulate neural growth also decline with age. Older people often experience decreased blood flow to the brain, which can impair memory and lead to changes in cognitive skills. Exercise the mind and keep it always occupied with new challenges in the form of reading, learning new languages, doing crosswords, puzzles, anagrams, jigsaws, picture completion, picture comparison, sentence completion, Sudoku, riddles, etc. Exercise is a must, and a good eating habit and diet is very essential. Do not drink and smoke, and if you have any bad habits kindly stop them, immediately. You must learn to be stress free and learn relaxation exercises too. Maintain good relations at home and with society. Play games you are not already familiar with that involve strategy, like chess or bridge, and word games like Scrabble. Read newspapers, magazines, and books that challenge you. Get in the habit of learning new things: games, recipes, driving routes, a musical instrument, a foreign language. Take a course in an unfamiliar subject that interests you. The more interested and engaged your brain, the more likely you’ll be to continue learning and the greater the benefits you’ll experience. Take on a project that involves design and planning, such as a new garden, a quilt, or a pond. New research indicates that walking six to nine miles every week can prevent brain shrinkage and memory loss. According to the American Academy of Neurology, older adults who walked between six and nine miles per week had more gray matter in their brains nine years after the start of the study than people who didn't walk as much. If you are not yet old, you may want to work on prevention rather than the cure. That is a good idea. Plan your day well but do not be too rigid. Follow a meaningful and prayerful lifestyle too. One thing that I have seen in many people who have started to live a life of giving and sharing (either in time, money, service and love) have found such pleasure and satiation that the longevity in life and in memory has received a major boost.

I more often smoke cigarettes, on daily basis, and occasionally I stop smoking for few days or for few weeks and I again start smoking, I am not a heavy smoker but smoke 2-3 cigarettes a day when I smoke.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued palpitations difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.

Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction. If you need them, get back to me after 1 week for next plan of action. Good luck.

Dear Rohit, At your age night fall is common. There is no need to stop it. You mature hormonally at adolescent age itself. But economically and socially, even legally you are not fit for marriage. What happens to the semen produced in your body? Think. It has to get out. You are not married. So it goes out in the dream stage of sleep.Otherwise you have to masturbate and release it. Going to other women may be risky with diseases. So, accept night fall as a natural way of letting the unused fluid (semen) out. As age advances, it will reduce because of your other interests in life. Now also if you concentrate on your studies and learning many skills for your life, night fall will be reduced.

I am a married woman with 2 kids. I am fully happy with my married life. But recently something happened which is disturbing me a lot. One of my uncle (same age as mine) liked me since childhood as we used to play together. But he never disclosed it to me. But now he said that he thinks about me. Even though I told him several times that I never had such feelings for him he is not ready to accept it. I don't want to spoil my married life and he is also married and has kids. As he is my relative we always come together in functions. I can't make eye to eye contacts now neither I talk much with him like before. I am trying to avoid him. But some way or the other way he shows his frustration to me. I don't know how to deal with this matter. I want to clarify this to him but now he is angry and not talking.

Tell him clearly that if he further disturb you, you need to inform your husband and others regarding this. Please be strict towards this fellow, otherwise your married life will be in turmoil. Keep him at bay. I suggest online counseling for you. Take care.
