I am suffering from stress I feel every day is very hectic and not concentration on my work feel too much anxiety in the day and pressure on my head after 6 pm feel everything fine so please let us help me about the matter. Thanks again.

General Physician,
I am suffering from stress I feel every day is very hectic and not concentration on my work feel too much anxiety in ...
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 Physical symptoms of stress include: •Low energy. •Headaches. •Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea. •Aches, pains, and tense muscles. •Chest pain and rapid heartbeat. •Insomnia. •Frequent colds and infections. •Loss of sexual desire and/or ability. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1.Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2.Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3.Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4.Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5.Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6.Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7.Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8.Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9.Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10.Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11.Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12.Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13.Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14.Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15.Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16.Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17.Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18.Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19.Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20.Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive If you need any prescription please consult me as we cannot prescribe in questions session. Regards.

Hi, what type of anxiety you have. Is it generalised or specific to something. Thought stopping techniques really works for that. Deep breathing also works. Check in which place the anxiety comes, be in that situation for more repeated time. The anxiety reduces. Regards

Hypertension: 7 Best Ways to Control it

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS

Hypertension: 7 Best Ways to Control it

The number of people affected by hypertension is constantly on the rise. The most important concern with people developing hypertension is that it is not an isolated issue. It brings with it a host of problems, including higher chances of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease problem. While there is no definite cure for hypertension, it is definitely possible to control it using the following measures.

  1. Weight control: Greater the body mass index (BMI), higher is the chances of developing hypertension. Check with your doctor to know what the ideal weight is and try to maintain it. If overweight, losing even 10 pounds can make a big difference to your blood pressure.
  2. Diet management: Excessive salt, calories, fat, and sugar are to be avoided. Sodium is one of the main culprits for increasing blood pressure and should be avoided. Include fruits and vegetables that are rich in potassium and magnesium. Reducing salt is another major way to control blood pressure. Fish oils with omega-3 fatty acids are extremely good for the health of the heart and so consult your doctor to include the right amounts in your diet. 
  3. Exercise: A regular workout regimen can reduce the chances of developing blood pressure by up to 40% to 50%. This should not be misinterpreted as the need for vigorous workouts. Even small, regular physical activity daily goes a long way in controlling blood pressure.
  4. Alcohol: While quitting alcohol is the best thing to do, for those finding it difficult to do so, cutting down on it plays a big role in controlling blood pressure. No more than a drink per day for women, and no more than two per day for men are recommended.
  5. Stress management: Stress is one of the major causes for increasing blood pressure, and so managing stress is very important. Whether music or meditation, pick your stress buster and see your blood pressure lowered.
  6. Medications: If you are already on a medication regimen, strictly adhere to the schedule. Consult your doctor before adding herbal supplements or dietary supplements. Taken individually, they may be good for health, but there are good chances of them interacting with your regular medications.
  7. Monitor: Once you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, have periodic check-ups with your doctor to ensure it is within the permissible limits. If beyond limits, immediately correct it.

As noted, hypertension is not an isolated issue and brings with it a whole lot of issues. Controlling it can help control the other issues that would follow and improve the quality of life.

Hi my age is 20 and I am a college student. About a month ago I had severe panic attack during my flu and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was having shortness of breath with fever and other flu symptoms. We thought that it was an asthma attack or I was having some problem in my lungs since I was a regular smoker. However after few days all my reports were normal and I was released from the hospital. After a week I had the same thing and again I thought that I would just die. I was again rushed to the hospitals and this time they gave me shots of antibiotics and deriphyllin with some antacids. However after a few days when again my reports were normal I was suggested a psychiatrist and he diagnosed that I was suffering from anxiety disorder. I did not have any type of anxiety or panic before in my life so I refused to take the meds and decided that I will fight this on my own. One thing I observed that after eating full stomach I wud get severe episodes of panic or anxiety. Then I came back home and I was not better at all so I did a bit of my own research and found that when histamine increases in your body you can get anxiety attacks so I bought a cetrizine pill from the nearby drug store and ate it, I was feeling a hell lot of better the other day! so I told this to my doc and he prescribed me cetrizine for another 15 days. I also had blocked or stuffy nose so I was given levocitrazin hydrochloride and I had a weird tightness in my throat for which I was given some kind of gastric medicine. Those pills worked like magic all my anxiety gone I was feeling way better and started going out again. A mistake I did maybe that I started smoking again but very less like one cigarette when my friends were with me. I again caught cold without any fever and my anxiety was back. The cetrizine pills stopped working I am again having itchy skin however sneezing and itchy eyes are not happening and again my stomach is creating hell lot of acid and days and nights have become like hell for me. I can not eat because I get too much anxious or panicked after eating and my BP is too low. nausea DIZZINESS lightheadedness STUFFY NOSE AND CHOKING THROAT WITH ANXIETY AND SKIN ITCHING have become my day to day symptoms. I am not having fever. I am afraid to go out I do not have enough energy even to get my life straight. I am in a very bad place. I have given an allergy test whose reports are still to come. I also have ITCHY SCALP and sweat makes me itch more. I really need some advice. I do not even know which doctor to go to. I just want this misery to end.

Hi To overcome your anxiety, relax your mind. Don't think negatively. You have a negative assumption that after eating you will have panic attacks. Change your thinking. Think positively and give positive affirmations to yourself. Learn relaxation techniques and practice daily. Deep breathing will also help you. Develop good hobbies and engage yourself. Join yoga or pranayama classes. This gives you relief.

Hi ! This is Naushad here. I'm 47 yrs of age. For the last 3to 4 months I've been having this severe pain in my feet at the bottom heel area. The pain is very severe espiacially in the mornings when i get up. I am hardly able to walk. Initially the pain was only in the mornings and night after I used tocome back from work. But of late the pain is there throughout the day. The pain is there in both the legs. I've checked my uric acid twicw and both the reports are normal. Please advice. Thanks

Dear , Kindly think of ruling out the calcaneal spur. This is a bony growth which gives you a pain. It could also be planter fasciitis. Consult local physician and get the right kind of foot ware to suite your feet. Metaphysically one gets heel pain when one has to bear the brunt, responsibilities, pressure or blame from others. If this is the case, learn to address these feelings.

Dear lybrate user it's really difficult to deal with this constant feelings of self doubt, worry, tension etc. It can really disturb your daily life style. It's good you have asked for solution because this shows that you are ready to bring change in your life style. You can do one thing that sit in a comfortable place, you may take 3 deep breaths and start praying to almighty about your situation. This may help you to relax and reflect upon your and then take pen and paper and you may try noting those thoughts and feelings as they come, without pausing. Write as much as you can and without worrying about the language or words you used. You just need to pour out your feelings. After finishing you may pray for peace. When you are in a relaxed state you may try to read that note and you may get the answers to your disturbing thoughts. Try out this and give your feedback. Take care.

You may be into an anger related depression or in the early stages of it. Meet with a counselor and work out your emotions with that person and follow all the instructions. When you internalize your feelings you will experience a lot of health complications. If you know of any reason, developmental or genetic that has contributed to this condition, take that to your counselor. So go out and meet with people, exercise regularly, sleep well and eat healthily. 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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.

Dear Basil. Welcome to lybrate. You are suffering from grief due to separation anxiety. Usually such separation anxiety gets itself cured within some weeks. In your case, it is still continuing.

Dear user. I can understand. I am really sorry. There are no tonics available to keep your health intact or maintained when you continue taking liquor and cigarettes. 350 ml per day is almost half a bottle or 6 large. This is too much a daily dose. Please quit drinking and smoking. Then we can think about tonics to restore your health. Take care.

If you do not have erections when you want to, in spite of having normal hormone levels, then that is definitely due to stress and anxiety. Anxiety is always an unseen problem which affects sexual performances. Once you treat anxiety like any other body illness you definitely perform better. A psychiatrist can help you get rid of anxiety with help go sexual counseling, medications and behavior therapy.

MY SON 12 YEARS OLD HE IS VERY INTELLIGENT, THE PROBLEM IS SOME TIME HE BEHAVED AS DISORDER MAN AND ALSO CRYING LIKE "AMMA AMMA AMMA "

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your son is super intelligent, it is likely that he is compensating a lot for his lost/losing childhood. Sometimes the pressures of school and life may make him focus all his energy on those activities at the loss of his childhood. You must let him be a child more and let him play with other children with their type of games and activities. Thankfully he is showing that deprivation now itself and so it is possible to help him before it gets serious. You do not need to send him for any therapy, if you allow him to be a normal child and emphasize less on his studies. It is okay if he does not do too well in his studies especially during the early part of the school year. Only towards the end you will need to make him do more for the studies. If he loses his childhood, he could never regain it later and he could become depressed or suffer other problems in life.

He drinks 5 beer for a month is it okay for maintaining a good health if not what all problems will he get in future and what are the solutions to reduce his drinking habit.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Drinking alcohol regularly and heavily is associated with a number of health problems like jaundice, liver failure, vomiting blood, passing blood in stools, vitamin deficiency and seizures (fits). Other problems like accidents due to drunk driving, impaired personal relations, problems at work, etc also occur. The consumption appears to be less, however any of these above problems can occur. The best thing is to stop drinking. If you are unable to stop on your own, consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiciton. Medication can be prescribed to reduce craving for alcohol. You may consult me for further management if required.
