How to know if you have an anxiety disorder?

DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to know if you have an anxiety disorder?

Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder.

1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue.

2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder.

3. Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears.

4. Muscle tension - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and unwillingness to work.

5. Chronic indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea.

Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others.

My voice is very low which is not heard from 2 or more Meyers so please suggest any medicine or any other suggestions.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

hello I am 17 years old male person .i am suffering from some disorder which I do not know correctly ,it may be depression or psychosis .Now I am going to explain my symptoms points wise. This problem started exactly 2 years before. Firstly before 2 years I entered into 10th class with change of my section into a topper class slowly my happiness decreased day to day sadness increased ,day by day my focus and concentration decreased .once upon a time I used to get good marks and high ranks I entered into toppers class then slowly my marks also decreased ,i was not able to focus and concentrate on studies ,cannot getup early in the morning for studies but before I used to study at 1: 00 am in the morning but now those habits all ruined. Slowly day by day I became failure ,i cannot used to understand any lessons ,studies ,classes ,it is all about like my brain had stopped working I thought. I did not even get memories, thoughts,cannot imagine, focus,concentrate ,enjoy ,no laugh ,no cry, no sadness, no happiness, no feelings mainly ,no proper memory power. Like this I have time passed for 5 months. Then one day I tried and did hard work to getup early at 1 am in the morning again and woke up and studied crazily like just reading but not understanding and something like by hearting method for the next day exam .and later appeared for the exam but same situation ,cannot understand the questions ,but slowly slowly I attempted small questions by recalling answers then suddenly I got a feeling like sudden flow of blood into brain I thought my brain started working .yes ,it really started ,suddenly I became active my memory returned ,my thoughts started, my feelings started, my imagination started, my happiness also started then ,quickly I started attempting the questions in no time .exam finished results came I passed in a high rank rank i.e state 6th I thought that this change happened due to my studying at 1 am the before day. So again I started reading and studying books at 1 am everyday. But it gone reverse my brain got slowed day by day ,my 10 th public exam came near ,and a new problem started as like before my brain got stopped for some time during the school time and during small exams then immediately I informed my father about this and within no time we consulted a psychiatrist exactly one day the public exams ,so he given clonazep, and amisulpride tablets ,with that I managed some what during the exams and completed or written the exams with so much hard work, one thing I forgot to mention is that some songs are used to play continuously in my mind and also im itself singing that songs in my heart ,and also during the exam time ,if I not sing songs in my heart the writing of exams may become difficult because without that songs ,i am not getting thoughts and the answer to write. Finally I got 9.7 gpa points in my exams but the doctor changed my course and given another tablets named schidon plus hcl and amisulpride tablets .this is summer holidays time .i used to get more sleep and drowsiness, my brain day by day became weak and suddenly one day I forgot to swallow the the tablets then brain again stopped working slowly ,also next three days I did not take the tablets because I went out of station for a function in village. Then I returned home and also taken tablets but no change immediately I informed my psychiatrist that my brain stopped again. I thought that this total negative change is due to the tablets he given (schidon plus hcl means risperidone and trihexyphenidyl hcl and amisulpride). So I changed many doctors also consulted a psychologist but my brain did not started working upto now it is 2 years upto now .i had left the college 1 year due to this problem ,i forgot to mentioned one thing that in this last one year my brain worked but only one day exactly 20 hours the reason behind this is due to that I had taken schidon plus hcl and amisulpride for 40 days exactly then suddenly we changed doctor and suddenly tablets also changed ,i started new tablets (stalopam and amisulpride tablets) then immediately after taking tablets I got the same feeling as a sudden flow of blood into the brain and same situation brain again started working ,my feelings started, my thoughts started, my happiness started, my imagination and all started but after 20 hours it stopped working due to end of tablets reaction effect. So this is the long story and upto now I have taken 6 ect sessions. But no improvement at all .so what should I do now?

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

My concentration levels are very low, I also started doing meditation But it's of no use, can you please give me some suggestions to improve my concentration?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Dear , unable to laugh out is not a disease. Your personality trait could be such. Forcing a laugh is of no use. Learn to see humor and then automatically you will laugh. You told you are not mentally fit. How can you say so? did any doctor diagnosed your mental unfitness? please post a private question to me with every detail and I will help you. Take care.

I am stressed out what to do I can't think of one thing at a time may be this is because of my college what can I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am stressed out what to do I can't think of one thing at a time may be this is because of my college what can I do?
We generally use the word 'stress' when we feel that everything becomes too much to handle - we are overloaded and wonder whether we can cope with the pressures placed upon us. Nowadays stress is a normal part of life. Almost everyone has some sort of stress. Constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, threatens our health and well-being. There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better. 1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise. 2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. 3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. 4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone. 5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you. 6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. 7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you. 8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert. Or consult me on Lybrate privately

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 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.

You certainly seem to have problems of yoru own. This does not mean that what your BF did was alright. He seems to do a lot of wrong things and then conveniently blames you for it. This is a lame excuse and does not augur well for your future with him. Also you should never be in a relationship where there is emotional and physical abuse. In accepting it there is something really lacking in you. Perhaps you suffer from a rejection issue and will tolerate a lot of nonsense just to get his love. You will also tend to appease him sometimes and stubbornly do things in such as manner to invite and set up the rejection. You need to work with a counselor to sort these things out. Until then don't get into any relationship and this boy is definitely not the one for you. He lacks respect for you. There may a lot of issues that may come from your family of origin. Meet a counselor soon.

You should not proclaim your love to any one you feel attracted to especially when you are already friends with people. Wait and watch your every step before declaring anything. If you continue to harbour the same feelings for almost one year, maybe that time reevaluate your emotions and declare.
