Sir I'm female 30 years old. I'm suffering from Migraine and I'm on medication since 2003 but don't feel much effect. Dr. advised me Mbeta 40, Ciplar 10, Propornol 80, topomac 25. Almost I have taken every kind of medicine for my problem now I'm having burning sensation in my left side of head every time. Not any medicine is providing me relief so far. Actually in 2003 My parents got divorced and I got depressed a lot. After that I was in relationship for about 7 year and on just before my marriage, our relation broke. This gave biggest ever shock to me and I was on physiatrist treatment for 6 months but problem was same. Now my mood remain down and dont feel happy at all, sometime feels pain in my heart also. Just want to spent time alone and I weep alone. Want to come out off all such situation.

Hello. My suggestion for you is - continue with the medicines you are on, but gradually and slowly reduce the frequency of use and then stop them completely later and side by side start with the homoeopathic medicines which I am going to advise you, so that they will take start taking the care of your problem. Start with 1 dose of Natrum Mur. 200 daily at 11am, Brahmi (Bacopa Monierri) Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water thrice a day and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night for 15 days. After that report to me about intensity of your sufferings, will recommend you accordingly. For management part: do breathing exercises (like pranayam, anulom- vilum) early in the morning before sunrise, for relieving stress from your body! If possible, you can learn yoga from a qualified yoga-teacher/ instructor.

My boyfriend is suffering from delusions of persecution & is on treatment for substance induced psychotic disorder since an year now. He's not abusing any substance now & he's not scared of people anymore but his delusion on me has not gone away still. He thinks i've drugged him & i'm the cause of all his suffering. He's uncomfortable meeting me. This illness has ripped our relationship apart. He stays in mumbai & I had to leave mumbai because he was totally scared of me. I'm in kolkata. Now the problem is he can't stay with me but can't be away too. He talks to me everyday & we have a platonic relationship. The intensity of his delusion isn't as strong as before though. My question is'will he never realize his delusions? is there any hope? he's suffering from psoriasis too now. How can I contribute in his wellbeing?

Usually drug-induced psychosis fortunately has a two-year duration and will subside on its own. It is good he is on treatment though which will make it easier. Even the geographical distance between you two will give him the space and time to work on the issues since he is blaming you for his self-induced condition. He needs counseling to sort out his distortion with your involvement and come to terms with his contribution and the addiction. Most addicts have a problem accepting the seriousness of their problem and use denial to blame other people and factors for their plight. He needs to sort this out first. You just have to be assuring to him and talk like normal and that you are not guilty of any wrong doing. There is no point in getting into a slanging match while denying it. If that happens, just keep quiet and say that it is up to him to believe you or not. I also think that if he does not work or resolve his problem, you may have to take a call about the future of this relationship from your side at least. You may go about it as gently as possible but the hard reality is that there is something wrong to begin with and unless that is worked up on and dealt with, with some guarantees that that will not recur as a permanent problem in the future, you could be looking at letting him go. If you still want to pursue the relationship, please get involved in his recovery to understand the implications and the extent he has resolved the addiction problem and the psychosis. Sometimes the chemical could have induced an underlying predisposition to the psychosis. Then it is a different situation all together. You must also work on why you were attracted to such a personality, and if that moots some serious work, please do so for your own good, whether you make it with him or not.

I trying to stop smoking but I can't do it. Can you suggest me how can I stop it.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.

BHMS
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.
First of all, make sure that your mom gets time for some relaxation for 15 mins. In those 15 mins, let her lie on the bed with no noise around and make her close her eyes. Then you apply some almond oil softly with the tip of your fingers around both her eyes for 10 mins and on her feet for 5 mins. Make the room cooler with air conditioning or high speed fan! spread some fragrance by a good quality room freshener and tell your mom to sleep with her hands open facing the ceiling. After 15 mins she will feel rejuvenated with much less pain! she can then take hot tea with ginger and restart her work. The most important thing. Do not give or let others give her any stress or tension which can scare her and eventually that will reflect in her bodily pains and the cycle will go on! so, now you take care of your mom like a mom daily for 15 mins and see the difference.

Dear lybrate user. Please calm down. You are just 18. You are not going to marry your girl friend tomorrow or next month. You have t complete your education, get a job and then marriage comes. So don't be too impatient. You are in love and so be it. Continue loving your girl friend. Don't worry about what your family members say, because those opinions are largely instinctual. Continue with your love and education. Get good job and propose her. At that moment, your family members would not disagree. Take care.

My father was drinking alcohol from many more years. So we gave a crotonol 500mg tablet of 7 numbers. After that he is talking like mental upset. After that wat will happens. Please give me suggestion please.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, this medication is used along with counseling and support to treat alcoholism. Crotonol (disulfiram) works by blocking the processing of alcohol in the body. This causes you to have a bad reaction when you drink alcohol. Drowsiness, tiredness, headache, acne, and metallic/garlic-like taste in the mouth may occur as your body gets used to the medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your father is mentally upset because of the withdrawal symptoms and the effect of the medicine. Please consult the doctor who prescribed this medicine. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I think I am loosing my memory power and concentration. What is the best way to improve memory power and concentration. What is the best medicine or powder. Please tell me the solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

I am also taking medha vati of patanjali product. Is it good for brain enhancement. In this it is written that it help in depression. And used as brain tonic and memory enhancer. I do not have depression but I want to improve my brain memory.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
Memory improvement happens if you exercise your brain just like when we exercise our body, the muscles and the bones become strong and overall the body become well toned and flexible . Medicines or nutrients do play a role but with out practicing it would not be effective. Develop a habit of revising what ever you read or study. Do creative things like drawing or painting or any hobby of your choice. When the mind is relaxed it can focus in a better way and grasp things more efficiently. Therefore sports or exercise is also essential as it relaxes the mind and the body. Also solve puzzles or mind games to sharpen your brain power. Learn the skills that do not have from others and share your skill with others.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Symptoms and Management

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Symptoms and Management

PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations. The individuals find it difficult to cope with such situations and often have flashbacks of those moments of trauma. Stress, as a result of the trauma wrecks the normal nervous functioning of the individuals. PTSD can have the following symptoms:

Re experiencing:

  1. Flashbacks of the traumatic event
  2. Nightmares, which are repetitive and severely distressing
  3. Images from the traumatic event intruding during the day
  4. Reminders of the event provoking distress

Avoidance or rumination:

  1. Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.
  2. Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Hyper arousal or emotional numbing:

  1. Hyper vigilance for threat
  2. Exaggerated sterile response
  3. Irritability
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep problems
  6. Difficulty experiencing emotion
  7. Emotional detachment from others
  8. Giving up activities which mattered before the trauma
  9. Amnesia for salient aspects of the trauma

How to manage PTSD?

The following tips will help to come to terms with your traumatic episode and ease stress:

  1. If symptoms are mild, then observing the patient is preferred
  2. If symptoms are chronic, then trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) proves to be beneficial
  3. Alternative treatments include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Comorbid symptoms such as depression, general anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse are secondary to PTSD. PTSD should be treated first and then the associated symptoms should be addressed.
  5. Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence.

Dear lybrate-user. Dark circle has many causes. Smoking won't have much effect on skin around your eyes. See your physician or psychiatrist and get urself evaluated. Till then you maintain your sleep time, diet and do exercise for 40 min. Maintain your water intake 3 to 3.5 L.this will improve your problem.
