I am 24 years female. Suffering from anxiety problems. I have these weird feeling of heartbeat and pumping sounds coming from head whenever I lay down. I have been prescribed to have zaptra and nuhenz once daily. Is it good to have these medications in this age. Can it lead to any complications if yes, then how many days should I limit these medications to avoid any complications. I have been prescribed to go for ct scan of brain if the situation doesn't improve. But I have a fear if CT scan shows any problems. Please help me in the right direction.

Respected lybrate-user, Not all anxiety features need medication. They need to do an assessment for your anxiety and confirm whether it's mild or moderate or severe. In the case only severe we can suggest medication. Orelse try psychotherapy for anxiety reduction. Deep breathing, systematic desensitization works well for you.

Can anyone help me to quit smoking. As I smoke about 30 cigarettes in minimum plzzz help me out quitting this.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
You’ve decided to quit smoking. Congratulations! Your first day without cigarettes can be difficult. Here are five steps you can take to handle quit day and be confident about being able to stay quit. 1. Make a Quit Plan Having a plan can make your quit day easier. A quit plan gives you ways to stay focused, confident, and motivated to quit. You can build your own quit plan or find a quit program that works for you. Check out SmokefreeTXT, QuitGuide app, If you don’t know what quit method might be right for you, visit the Quit Smoking Methods Explorer to learn more. No single approach to quitting works for everyone. Be honest about your needs. If using nicotine replacement therapy is part of your plan, be sure to start using it first thing in the morning. 2. Stay Busy Keeping busy is a great way to stay smokefree on your quit day. Being busy will help you keep your mind off smoking and distract you from cravings. Think about trying some of these activities: Get out of the house for a walk. Chew gum or hard candy. Keep your hands busy with a pen or toothpick, or play a game in the QuitGuide app. Drink lots of water. Relax with deep breathing. Go to a movie. Spend time with non-smoking friends and family. Go to dinner at your favorite smokefree restaurant. 3. Avoid Smoking Triggers Triggers are the people, places, things, and situations that set off your urge to smoke. On your quit day, try to avoid all your triggers. Here are some tips to help you outsmart some common smoking triggers: Throw away your cigarettes, lighters, and ash trays if you haven’t already. Avoid caffeine, which can make you feel jittery. Try drinking water instead. Spend time with non-smokers. Go to places where smoking isn’t allowed. Get plenty of rest and eat healthy. Being tired can trigger you to smoke. Change your routine to avoid the things you might associate with smoking. 4. Stay Positive Quitting smoking is difficult. It happens one minute. One hour. One day at a time. Try not to think of quitting as forever. Pay attention to today and the time will add up. It helps to stay positive. Your quit day might not be perfect, but all that matters is that you don’t smoke—not even one puff. Reward yourself for being smokefree for 24 hours. You deserve it. And if you’re not feeling ready to quit today, set a quit date that makes sense for you. It’s OK if you need a few more days to prepare to quit smoking. 5. Ask for Help You don’t need to rely on willpower alone to be smokefree. Tell your family and friends when your quit day is. Ask them for support on quit day and in the first few days and weeks after. They can help you get through the rough spots. Let them know exactly how they can support you. Don’t assume they’ll know.

I'm 42 having anxiety even after sleep having some giddy ness please give medicine name.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I'm 42 having anxiety even after sleep having some giddy ness please give medicine name.
Self-help for anxiety, anxiety attacks, and anxiety disorders Not everyone who worries a lot has an anxiety disorder. You may be anxious because of an overly demanding schedule, lack of exercise or sleep, pressure at home or work, or even from too much coffee. The bottom line is that if your lifestyle is unhealthy and stressful, you’re more likely to feel anxious—whether or not you actually have an anxiety disorder. So if you feel like you worry too much, take some time to evaluate how well you’re caring for yourself. Do you make time each day for relaxation and fun? Are you getting the emotional support you need? Are you taking care of your body? Are you overloaded with responsibilities? Do you ask for help when you need it? If your stress levels are through the roof, think about how you can bring your life back into balance. There may be responsibilities you can give up, turn down, or delegate to others. If you’re feeling isolated or unsupported, find someone you trust to confide in. Just talking about your worries can make them seem less frightening. Take care of yourself Connect with others. Loneliness and isolation set the stage for anxiety. Decrease your vulnerability by reaching out to others. Make it a point to see friends, join a self-help or support group, or share your worries and concerns with a trusted loved one. Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and deep breathing can reduce anxiety symptoms and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Exercise regularly. Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise on most days. Get enough sleep. A lack of sleep can exacerbate anxious thoughts and feelings, so try to get seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. If you struggle with sleep, adopting smart sleep habits can make a big difference. Be smart about caffeine and alcohol. If you struggle with anxiety, you may want to consider reducing your caffeine intake or cutting it out completely. Same with alcohol, which can make anxiety worse. Train your brain to stay calm. Worrying is a mental habit you can learn how to break. Strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging anxious thoughts, and learning to accept uncertainty can significantly reduce anxiety and fear.

Dear, the most common causes of weakness are * anemia * metabolic disorder (diabetes, hypothyroidism) * breathing problems (asthma, sinusitis) *digestion problems (diarrhea, gestric ulcers) * cervical spondylosis first check out your haemoglobin (hb), if your hb is low, then eat a lot of green vehetables and iron rich foods like apple, guava, sapotas (cheeku, beet root and oranges. Takeiron suppliments for increase in hb. If your hb level is normal then your all parts of body get adequate level of oxygen. 2. Take deep breaths atleast for 10-15 minutes twice a day. 3. Check out the blood sugar fasting in every 6 months. If blood sugar level, then take proper medicines for high sugar level. 4. In thyroid disorder, there is a feeling of weakness and tiredness. Check out your thyroid profile, if you feel tired even after the proper deit and medicines and take treatment. 5. In the morning, do medication regulary, do pranayam atleast for 5 -10 minute.

Dear , anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Good Morning ~ Performance anxiety or social anxiety disorder is way too common and the most common among the psychiatric group of anxiety disorders. Cure is effective when both medical and talk therapy or counseling approaches are used and it will help with overcoming this problem sooner than later.

How to increase my mind by vegetables.

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
How to improve your memory: 1. Pay attention. You can? t remember something if you never learned it, and you can? t learn something? that is, encode it into your brain? if you don? t pay enough attention to it. It takes about eight seconds of intense focus to process a piece of information into your memory. If you? re easily distracted, pick a quiet place where you won? t be interrupted. 2. Involve as many senses as possible. Try to relate information to colors, textures, smells, and tastes. The physical act of rewriting information can help imprint it onto your brain. Even if you? re a visual learner, read out loud what you want to remember. If you can recite it rhythmically, even better. 3. Relate information to what you already know. Connect new data to information you already remember, whether it? s new material that builds on previous knowledge, or something as simple as an address of someone who lives on a street where you already know someone. 4. For more complex material, focus on understanding basic ideas rather than memorizing isolated details. Practice explaining the ideas to someone else in your own words. 5. Rehearse information you? ve already learned. Review what you? ve learned the same day you learn it, and at intervals thereafter. This? spaced rehearsal? is more effective than cramming, especially for retaining what you? ve learned. 6. Manage stress in your life. Don't let it weigh you down. Counselling helps to learn to effectively deal with stress and become more functional. You can find your strengths and abilities to cope and manage with stressful situations. 7. Exercise helps to oxygenate and send blood to the brain. Don't scrounge on these. 8. Sleep well for 7-8 hours everyday. Poor sleeping habits reduce the brains capacity to focus, memorise and reproduce. 9. Eat food rich in omega 3: eat fish, mackerel, flax seed etc. To help the brain to be young and fresh. 10. Challenge your brain often and do activities out of your comfort zone so that the brain is forced to think, focus, memorise and reproduce. Daily and routine activities can be boring for the brain and not be a challenge at all. So do some puzzles, sudoku, try new roads, read new kind of books and material and keep giving the brain new food to chew on. If you have any questions, please click on private chat.

Audiologist,
Nothing is particular cause for stammering, you consult doctor to get medicine but also consult the speech therapist and evaluate your stammering then take continues speech therapy, slow your rate of speech whenever you talking someone, take a small breath to start the words, practice the relaxation and breathing exercises at home. Less your nervousness and freely mixed with your friend but you must take speech therapy, after speech therapy it will be curable.

You should talk to your wife. There maybe sexual communication gap or your method may be wrong or you may be acting sexually selfish in the bed. There may me many more reasons. You have to talk to her and be patient with her. She may be stressed out of job responsebilities and new family adjustment. Due to stress she is not liking sex or she may have some kind of fear. This you have asked by discussing with her. God bless.

How can I increase my memory? I usually forget things after few days, I'm unable to make remember an iota of things.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.
