Hi doctor, I am very emotional and got the problem like anxiety, palpitation, stress on small issues. So please suggest.
I can't concentrate in my studies. Every time distractions come into play. I am not getting enough energy as well during my studies. Every time I'm feeling a little weak. I seems like I don't wanna do anything at that time. What should I do to solve this?
Hello Sir/madam Few days back One of my friend, s friend gave me a spiritual (panic healing) healing. I think it, s a hypnosis kind of healing. She made me sit by closing my eyes. Asked me to think about what is bothering me in life. I did so. I was fully aware of my body though. She put the CD of Om shanti Om. After doing all the spiritual healing she asked me to go and sleep. And she left. Since that day I started getting some flying and out of the body dreams very often. Which scared me in the night Sir! Kindly let me know Sir how to get rid of these dreams. I spoke to her she said you are born again now do forget your past. Kindly let me know is there something in the healing to worry about? Are it, s a normal thing after this healing? Thanks a lot regards

Listen to your favourite music at least for sometime.
Whenever you feel more stressful stop your work go for walk for few minutes or take deep breath and say to yourself that everything is going to be ok.
I am unable to avoid some intrusive thoughts which pops up in my mind while studying or while doing any other things, then it takes me 10-15 minutes to convince myself in order to not take that thought seriously and I pledge to ignore such thoughts in future. But I feel the same amount of pain when such type of thoughts reappear in my mind and I feel extremely helpless in terms of ignoring those thoughts and it again take the same amount of time (and sometimes same argument too which I use to do with myself) to convince myself to ignore such thoughts. Now, for last 1 month, such thoughts started disturbing me so frequently that I am failing to concentrate in studies for more than 10-15 minutes and I use to get indulge in talking to myself in order to reduce the anxiety caused by thoughts which I don't like. It gives me headache after sometime. I can sense the problem to be growing day by day from last 1-2 months. Please suggest me immediate measures and way forward in this regard.

Because there are no girls virgin in my group. 99% of girls in the college already had sex atleast 1 time. But I am not. Tell me that being virgin is bad. And have sex with stranger is good?
Neurological disorders are an enigmatic bunch. There are various ongoing researches to identify the exact cause and how to treat them. While some argue that schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder, others do not agree with it and debate that the origin is yet to be identified and the factors which produce it are yet to be identified.
Factors supporting it to be a brain disease are listed below.
Scan images (MRI and PET scans) of people who have had schizophrenia are different and have a reduced volume of grey matter, especially in the frontal and temporal lobes. In some people, this loss could be as high as 25%. Serial images have shown that the loss begins in the outer (parietal) region and gradually spreads to the rest of the brain. There is a strong correlation between the extent of this grey matter loss and the severity of the symptoms more the loss, worse the symptoms. Severe symptoms include hearing voices, psychotic thoughts, delusions, hallucinations and severe depression. This grey matter reduction does not depend on whether the person has undergone treatment or not for the condition.
The counter argument is that grey matter loss is not seen in patients with schizophrenia alone. A number of neurological disorders, including normal ageing, manifest as grey matter loss on the scan images. Also, another consoling news is that this grey matter loss is completely reversible.
The way neurotransmitters respond to stimuli in people with schizophrenia is also slightly different. There are two variations to this debate: that schizophrenia is caused by excessive amounts of dopamine or increased sensitivity to dopamine. There are two proofs for this hypothesis first, dopamine suppressants are useful as antipsychotic drugs and secondly drugs which produce the same effect as dopamine can cause hallucinations similar to those seen in schizophrenics. There could be other neurotransmitters involved too, but the dopamine connection is more strongly established.
The electrical activity of the brain as seen in EEG is very different and abnormal in schizophrenic people. This reduced brain activity is another indication of the fact that schizophrenia is another brain disorder. There is also a strong genetic component to schizophrenia. Family history correlation is also very strong. The correlation extends to the point that where there is a neurologic disorder in the first-degree relatives, the chances of developing schizophrenia is increased.
There are specific genes, mutations of which are also attributed to schizophrenia. While the risk factors are in place (as mentioned above), the environmental conditions (brain infections, head trauma, family/social stressors and toxins can all lead to the manifestation of the symptoms. With medications and support therapy, both prevention and symptom management are possible.
