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. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Proper treatment is needed. You may consult me.

Hi, When you're feeling anxious or stressed, these strategies will help you cope: Take a time-out. Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head. Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Do keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand. Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks. Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest. Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below. Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly. Count to 10 slowly. Repeat, and count to 20 if necessary. Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn't possible, be proud of however close you get. Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think? Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way. Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Get involved. Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress. Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else you can identify? Write in a journal when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, and look for a pattern. Talk to someone. Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Talk to a physician or therapist for professional help. consult me for any query or if you want any help in dealing with stress.

When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my Point across effectively. However, every time I Open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total Idiot. Everything always comes out wrong; Nothing ever comes out right. I can never get Across what I am trying to convey. People never" get the point" of what I am saying; it's very Frustrating. I have a lot of intelligent thoughts And good ideas, but if I try to express them Verbally, it always sounds really garbled and Disjointed. I am eloquent when I write, but When I talk, I stammer and fumble and look like a Fool. What is the reason for this?

Dear sir expression of thoughts can be either emotional or conceptual among the conceptual expression of thoughts, there are two variants 1. Through writing 2. Through speaking so, there are three neural circuits in brain that express that you feel and the three neural circuits are in various stages of development in various individuals so some are good speakers but poor writers some are good writers but poor speakers some are good writers as well as good speakers some are neither:) (same way, some people would like to read a mail to know the response. Some prefer a phone call. Why? it is because just like how you have various pathways for expression of thought, there are various input pathways too. Those whose neural circuits for symbols is stronger prefer a sms or mail. Those whose neural circuits for sounds is stronger prefer a phone call) now coming back to your problem your neural circuits that deals with speaking (from brocas area) is" relatively weaker" than your intellect and the neural circuits that deals with writing which are very very strong. So you are finding it difficult to talk but, please wait your speech pathway is not really weak. It appears to be relatively weaker because your thinking and writing circuits are extremely strong. In other words, you think faster, your hands are able to cope up with that speed, but your mouth is not yet coping up, and hence you stammer. The good news: a person with good intellect and good writing skills (as evidenced from your question) can easily develop his speech too. All it needs is self confidence [which I have given here ;) ] and practice [which you have to do] start practising today. Sorry, now itself:):):) best wishes for a successful career.

Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

Catatonic depression is a kind of depression which is characterized by prolonged periods of speechlessness and motionlessness. It is described as a state of mind that is caused by neurogenic and motor inabilities caused due to dysfunction of various neurotransmitters like glutamate and dopamine. People who suffer from a severe case of this condition, even have difficulty in performing simple regular tasks. For example, the act of eating breakfast may take a span of hours.

Some of the common symptoms of this condition are:

- Feelings of sadness
- A change in appetite causing gain or loss of weight
- Difficulty in concentrating and thinking
- Feelings of restlessness, worthlessness, and guilt
- Fatigue
- Irritability
- A loss of interest in any activity
- Trouble sleeping
- Attempts at suicide
- Cynicism and negativism
- Agitation
- Unusual and abnormal movements
- An inability to move and difficulty in speaking
- A refusal to eat or drink due to extreme anxiety

The major causes of catatonic depression are:

1. Abnormal neurotransmitter production - Irregularities in the production of neurotransmitters are believed to be one of the major causative factors of this type of depression. These neurotransmitters present in the brain help cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin and norepinephrine are the neurotransmitters which are mostly associated with this type of depression.

2. Dopamine irregularities - Another reason for this condition is believed to be the irregularities in dopamine, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter systems. Underlying neurological, physical, psychiatric or psychological conditions are accompanying issues.

Administering antidepressants or using electroconvulsive therapy are some of the known ways of treatment which have proved effective for getting relief from catatonic depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

जाने क्या होता है मिर्गी, दौरे (EPILEPSY) रोग, के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां।

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Jaipur

मिर्गी, दौरे (एपिलेप्सी ) के बारे में भारत के ग्रामीण अंचल में हैं काफी भ्रांतियां। उन्हें दूर करने का उठाया है बीड़ा डॉ सुरेंद्र खोस्या न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट ने आओ उनका साथ दे ।

मिर्गी कारण, लक्षण और उपचार

मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) Epilepsy / दिमाग यानि मस्तिष्क तंत्र से जुड़ी बीमारी है। जिसमें मस्तिष्क विघुत तरंग विघटन होने पर मस्तिष्क कोशिकओं का शरीर अंगों से अचानक तालमेल बिगड़ जाता है। जिसे र्मिगी दौरा माना जाता है। मिर्गी स्थिति में व्यक्ति अचेत, मूर्छित, शरीर झटपटाना, मुंह से झाग आना, बेहोशी में चला जाता है। और मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति की मांसपेशियों शरीर अकड़ ऐठ जाता है। बार-बार इस तरह के संकेत होने पर उसे मिर्गी दौरा कहा जाता है। मिर्गी दौरे की कोई समय सीमा नहीं होती। मिर्गी दौरा कभी भी रोगी को पड़ सकता है। अकसर मिर्गी दो तरह से होती है। पहला आंशिक रूप, आंशिक रूप दौरा कुछ समय तक रहता है। शुरूआती तौर पर सामान्य लक्षण मौजूद होते हैं। आंशिक र्मिगी दौरे को नजरअंजाद ना करें, समय पर इलाज करवायें। और दूसरा तीब्र व्यापक रूप जिसमें व्यक्ति अचेतना के साथ शरीर हाथ पांव मारना, शरीर अंग अंग पर रगड़, गिरने से सिर, हाथ, पैर चोट लगना, मुंह झाग आदि शामिल है। Mirgi का इलाज मुख्यतय मिरगी रोधी दवाईयों और मस्तिक आॅपरेशन द्धारा किया जाता है। र्मिगी रोग का वक्त पर सही इलाज ना होने से व्यक्ति पागल हो सकता है। 

मिर्गी को लेकर तमाम भ्रांतियां है। अंधविश्वास के कायल ग्रामीण मिर्गी को शरीर का विष मान नीम के पत्ती का जूस या फिर ऐसी गाय जिसने बच्चा न जना हो उसका मूत्र पिलाते है। कहते हैं कि यदि नाक से उल्टी हो जाए तो बीमारी का ठीक होना तय है। लोगों को यह पता ही नही कि इलाज से मिर्गी की बीमारी ठीक हो सकती है।

न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट का कहना है कि मिर्गी (एपिलेप्सी) दिमाग से जुड़ा एक सामान्य रोग है जिसका इलाज पूरी तरह संभव है। दवाओं के प्रयोग से 80फीसदी रोगी ठीक हो जाते हैं और बाकी 20फीसदी रोगियों को ऑपरेशन की जरूरत पड़ती है। इस रोग के पीछे कोई अभिशाप या भूत-प्रेत नहीं होता। डॉ खोस्या ने बताया कि पूरे देश के आंकड़ों पर गौर करें तो व्‍यस्‍कों में हर सौ पर एक व्‍यक्ति तो बच्‍चों में एक हजार पर एक मिर्गी रोग से पीडि़त है। डॉ खोस्या बताते  हैं कि समय पर इलाज हो जाने से दर्जनों युवक और युवतियों की शादी टूटने से बच गई।

 

मिर्गी आने के कारण / Epilepsy Causes

  • सिर में पुरानी चोट दर्द रहने से
  • रक्त से ग्लूकोज मात्रा कम होना
  • मस्तिष्क में आॅक्सीजन की कमी
  • मस्तिष्क न्यूराॅन्स असंतुलन
  • पूरी नींद नहीं लेना
  • दवाईयों के दुष्परिणाम से
  • ब्रेन ट्यूमर से
  • शरीर में विषाक्त पदार्थों को ज्यादा बनना
  • जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग
  • मिर्गी जांच / Epilepsy Check up
  • गिर्गी संकेत होने पर जांच E.E.G. Electroencephalogram तकनीक द्वारा
  • Brain C.T. Scan द्वारा
  • C.T. Scan, Brain MRI द्वारा
  • मिर्गी दौरा पीड़िता/ पीड़ित पर ध्यान देने वाली जरूरी बातें / Epilepsy Awareness टिप्स

 

  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को कभी अकेला ना छोड़ें। हमेशा आसपास नजदीकी बना कर रखें।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़े व्यक्ति को जमीन पर ना लिटायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़ित व्यक्ति को पानी, गीली जगह, लाल रंग से दूर रखें।
  • मिर्गी ग्रसित व्यक्ति को दौरा पड़ने पर चोट लगने से बचायें।
  • मिर्गी के दौरान व्यक्ति की जीभ दांतों में मध्य आने से बचायें।
  • दांतों जकड़ने से बचायें, अकसर दांतों के बीच होंठ, जीभ जकड़ जाती है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीडिता को होश में लाने के लिए चेहरे पर ठंड़े पानी के छींटे मारे। 
  • बेहाशी अचेत अवस्था में पीड़ित को तुलसी पत्तें, लहसुन मसलकर सुंघायें तुलसी और लहसुन बेहोशी तोड़ने में सहायक है।
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर पीड़िता को पेट के बल पर लिटायें, जिससे झाग, लार नांक में जाने से बचायें। और गर्दन ऊपर की ओर रखें।
  • दौरा पीड़िता के गले, मुंह पर तंग, टाईट कपड़े से बचायें। 
  • मिर्गी दौरा पड़ने पर व्यक्ति के आस पास भीड़ ना करें। ताजी हवा खुला वातावरण बनायें।
  • मिर्गी पीड़िता को जूता अन्य तेज गंध ना सुघांयें।
  • व्यक्ति को प्राथमिक इलाज के लिए तुरन्त हस्पताल ले जायें।

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication. She is 35 and is taking alkepin 200 mg. We have come to know about DHA derivatives of clozapine (clozaprexine) which is considered to be highly safe and with high bioavailability. You are requested to kindly help us by informing availability of clozaprexine in India. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Mr. lybrate-user, I would like to tell one thing, schizophrenia is chronic illness. Basically it requires anti psychotic drugs for treatment. There are numbers of anti psychotic drugs availabale in market for treatment of Schizophrenia. Some drugs are FDA approved, some are superior in one trial but not in other trial. Some are popular in few countries but not FDA approved. Actually selection of proper antipsychotic depends on number of conditions viz. Age, sex, duration of illness, associated co morbid condition, any medical condition, substance history, organicity, prior drug response, socio-economical status etc. As in your case female patient having auditory hallucinations, probably case of schizophrenia needs proper medication consedering above mentioned condition. Now come to your basic question, she is taking clozapine 200 mg. It is also very efficacious drug. You talked about clozaprexine. It is considered as a prodrug of clozapine. It is investigational new drug, originally created at Harward University. Atype of fatty acid (DHA) was added to clozapine in order to increase penetration of blood brain barrier. This drug was initially tested in rats, but no obvous findings have been found in subsequent studies. It is not currently available in INDIA. Ihope it might help you.

Dear lybrate-user, do not change any medication without consulting doctor. You can always take second opinion from other doctors if you are not getting the expected results. Along with the medicine also start psychotherapy. Learn about your disease and the coping strategies. Talking to psychologist will help you maintaining recovery for long time.

Anorexia- How to treat it

Anorexia- How to treat it

Anorexia is one of the most common eating disorders plaguing a large section of today's youth. Anorexia is one such condition which arises as a psychological ailment and then culminates as serious physical manifestations. One of the most prominent preconditions of anorexia is the severe dissatisfaction with your body. The desire to lose weight constantly reigns supreme in your mind. So much so, that all that you can permit yourself to eat and all that you can't pre-occupies your mind entirely. This extensively impairs your social life and threatens your potential in all other aspects of life. This undermines your health and self-confidence tremendously and inflicts a distorted body image complex upon your psyche.

Under the spell of anorexia, you tend to dread even the slightest weight gain and consequently, it builds a sense of self-disgust in you. It can be an extremely stressful and harmful physical condition, gravely affecting your moments of joy and happiness. Drastic diets, excruciating exercising or using laxatives and diuretics could be some of the most common leeways into anorexia. The terror which looms around your weight gain will disable you from acknowledging how thin you are or for that matter, appreciating the body that you have. This may not only jeopardize your normal body functioning but also subjugate you to acute emotional distress and depression. What is worse is that anorexia works in such insidious ways that in most cases, one doesn't even realize the existence of the problem. The first and foremost step to recovery is to avoid anything and everything that may trigger the condition. Other recourses that one may take have been enlisted below.

  • Realizing the difference between dieting and anorexia: Anorexia often indicates deeper problems like depression and insecurities and the eating disorder simply emerges as a consequence of the same. Dieting does not entail an austere denial of food to self or completely throttling all of one's hunger pangs. Fulfilling the basic nutritional needs of your body as against starvation is the first step to recovery.
  • Seeking advice from well-wishers: If your loved ones seem perplexed about your health conditions, know all of it is well founded. Learn to acknowledge the fuzzy body images that afflicts you and take proactive steps towards combating them. Share your problems with your trusted ones and learn to adopt a healthier way of living. Join some productive engagement that will keep your mind off such baseless weight obsession.

I drink 3 times a week and my age is 23 so do i have any side effects for this in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well you do not state how much you drink each time. If you take two drinks at a time, then it is not a problem immediately. If you do not have much self-control in other areas, then one day you will start losing control in your drinking too. Or if you are susceptible to stress, you will increase your drinking. If you have any preconditions to addictions, you will be prone to increase the quantity and frequency of drinking. There are two aspects to consider for addictions: dependence and tolerance. The former is when the mind and the body become too dependent on alcohol to face life, or situations, or stresses. Then you cannot give it up easily or function normally without it. The second feature is that of tolerance, which is common to all addictive substances: as time goes by you will need more quantities to get the same effect. In which case, you will gradually increase the consumption of alcohol over time till you become enslaved to it. If you try to stop it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be very severe too. Regarding side effects there are many, if you go into heavy drinking: you will get an enlarged heart, brain damage with heavy drinking, late to work and lots of absenteeism, accidents while driving or otherwise, marriage problems, health difficulties including cancer of several organs, loss of employments, loss of libido and sexual functions, loss of opportunities etc. The list can go on and on. If you want to read more about addictions you may contact me with a payment of Rs. 250/- for my book on it. Postage is free.

I am 22 year old I have a bad habit of smoking earlier I use to smoke only one cigarette now I smoke 6-8 cigarette daily what to do and how to over come this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.
