For pain take tablet paracetamol 650 mg and I will suggest you to eat nutritious home made food with adequate fluid intake and get your blood checked for cbc and follow up with reports.

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

I have been smoking regularly for 40 year, I want to get some test done to check my health and the early risk of cancer (if any). What tests should I go for?

Smoking exposes you too various types of cancer mainly being lung cancer and cancer of your aerodigestive tract. This means your lung, mouth, wind pipe, food pipe and stomach are at risk. The maximum risk is with the first two. There is also the risk of cardiac problems. I would advise you to ideally undergo a comprehensive health check for cardiac status (stress test), lung function (pft) and others. For cancer though there are no reliable tests to detect cancers early, an oral exam by the surgeon at the health check up, an endoscopy if persistent ulcer complaints and a low dose ct scan of the chest are advised in chronic smokers. (though as I mentioned earlier, none are foolproof.)

Doctor please help me, I'm really feeling very much depressed in my life I've lost my happiness. I even thought to suicide at times, I tried to buy sleeping pills. I was getting a feel like am I supposed to live. The girl I loved more left me suddenly and never said what was the reason behind but this happened year and half ago.

Your loss is understandable. But your mourning and sadness about your loss is taking too long for you to recover. Feeling sad, depressed and hopeless about life are signs of depression. Without any further delay I would suggest you to reach out and consult a psychiatrist with a family member with all your details so that an appropriate management can be started. Depression like any other illness is treatable and once you are out of it you will be fine. Follow few suggestions. Never stay alone always speak out if you have feelings of self harm or suicide and ask someone for help. Talk to friends and family and people who care about you.

I am always feeling unreal and forgetting things very often. What may be the disease?

I hope I am wrong that your use of the word ?unreal? is meant to be understood as difficulty facing life than something more sinister. If, on the other hand, you mean that you are disconnected from the world around you and you feel that you don?t belong to your surroundings, you could be looking at something serious. In that case you must take your parents and visit a counselor first and on that person?s recommendations you could be asked to meet with a doctor. I don?t know how long this has been going on but do not delay and the earlier it is dealt with the better for you. When symptoms like this appear in early adolescence, it could mean something more serious. Equally encouraging is that the earlier it is treated; the changes can be better and permanent.

Hello sir, I have  depression from few months . So pls advice what should i do to cure?
If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 44 yrs old women, off late I feel, that no body gives importance to me, whether it is at office or at home. Only when people need approval / favour from me, they keep saying good about me. Even at home only when family needs my support or money from me, they pretend to be caring. I feel like living in an artificial world. This is making me irritable. I know that I cannot change them. How do I come out of this situation. Please suggest.

This is not the artificial world, it is the real world. And welcome to it. It may have nothing to do with your age but has a lot to do with the modern times. Everyone is out to see what they can get for themselves, and is very self-centered. Actually, that is not a problem because I am sure you do the same without realizing. It is bad when self-centered become selfish, and people do not just look for themselves, they ignore other people in the process, even if they are in need or in pain. We are all attention-seeking animals: you want attention, you go get it. Seriously, you have got to fend for yourself and take what you need and ask for what you want. If not, you will just get sidelined. One thing that can happen with age is that you can become lackadaisical and take things for granted. Then that is your fault. You must work to get attention and affection. Build strong bonds with the certain people you like and invest into those relationships to give you dividends at times like these. People have become time-serving leeches and don? t have time to spare for anything else unless it interests them, personally. It would be lovely to have us return to those good old days but the times are a changing and we have to learn to live with it. So there is no coming out of it per se but you want something go get it, period. Rough and tough world but we created it and we have to live in it.

Dear Lybrate user. The problem you have described is the story of every other person in 20s and 30s today. The world around us has drastically changed since the industrial revolution and more so after the technology boom in 21st century. Today there is no limits to earn but also a huge competition to face. We have created a virtual reality of targets around ourselves and we live every moment to fulfill them. We create goals for every day, every week, every month, every year and justify them by thinking that we want our future secure and happy. But when we achieve the goal we instead of enjoying it and living our present, set another goal to achieve. This is how we forget to live in our present and get stressed out. But I feel that there is something more to your problem which is bothering you and you also quoted that you feel depressed. My suggestion would be to have a detailed interview with a psychiatrist so that a good individualised management plan can be formulated for you. If not possible than you may contact me on Lybrate for detailed evaluation by chat or audio call and I may prescribe you medications. Also in your case Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (counselling) will be helpful. Hoping for your best. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Focus or concentration or attention are same. Focus is the result of dedication towards concrete goals. Therefore first set a concrete goal, start liking the goal and prepare a plan to achieve it. You will have focus. Take care.

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning To Deal With Frustration It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody. Treatment of Frustration Frustration and anger are fundamental emotions that everyone experiences from time to time. From a very early age, people learn to express frustration by copying the behaviour they see modelled around them, and by expressing frustration and angry behaviour and seeing what they can get away with. We all suffer from frustration, and being able to effectively deal with frustration is a very important skill to develop. Each person needs to learn how to control frustration, so that it does not control them. The following is a brief overview of types of frustration management programs and resources that have proved helpful in understanding and controlling frustration and anger. I have found several approaches to treatment that have been effective for my clients including: Individual and Group Therapy for Anger Management. A therapist who can observe and analyse your behaviour from an impartial perspective, can help you with your reality testing. A therapist knows many effective frustration and anger management strategies and will be able to help you develop a personalized set of strategies for changing both your thinking and behaviour. Depending on your needs, your therapist may work with you on breathing or meditation exercises to reduce frustration, safe and appropriate emotional and physical techniques to release frustration, communication, or cognitive restructuring (a method for disputing and changing the way you think). Relaxation and exercise Simple relaxation tools such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery can help calm down feelings of frustration and anger. Breathing deeply, from your diaphragm, will help while breathing from your chest won't relax you. While breathing, you can slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax," "calm down" or "take it easy." Non-strenuous exercise, like yoga, can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer. Strenuous and vigorous exercise can also help you to work off frustration and angry feelings. Frustration can have a highly damaging impact on our frame of mind. It can turn a positive person into a person who sees nearly everything as a problem. It can slow you down, inhibit your progress, and at times completely immobilize you. We can become so wound up with our frustration that we do not, and cannot, think or act rationally. Our frustration can often exacerbate a situation and create a vicious circle. If we are convinced that our actions are not working, no matter how hard we try, we are much more likely to reduce, rather than increase, our chances of success. Remember, you cannot eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. If you feel that your degree of frustration is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counselling to learn how to handle it better. Please contact me Privately on this site or another therapist.

It is due to both factors that you mentioned. Taking care of your body needs is as important as social media and friends. Have a routine and stick to it. Don't keep chatting till late night and avoid sleep. Go to bed at a decent hour and have about 7 hours of sound sleep everyday. Establish a time table for your studies and stick to it. You must have time for friends and entertainment but don't overdo anything.

Whenever you get angry, detach yourself from that situation and practice deep breathing, feel that your anger is moving out from your mind. Share with your closed ones. Identify your thoughts which make you angry. Replace those with positivity. With the help of counselling, you will learn to relax yourself and to instruct your subconscious mind with positive thoughts.

This will give you mental rest too. And try shift to a place with rommates where you will not feel lonely. But try to cultivate your hobbies which will increae your happy hormones.

During the night you will tend to use your unconscious mind more, especially during deep REM sleep. It is likely that you are waking up with the old memories and emotions that are buried in the unconscious mind from childhood and they are seeking a resolution. You must study the emotions and meet with a counselor to see what needs to be done. There is nothing to be alarmed about as this helps in unearthing old issues, which with the resolution, will make you feel completely fine and well too. Expressing feelings will be very important and issues that you have chosen to bury because they may have been too traumatic to keep remembering will get its due attention.
