Hi, I am suffering from jaundice. And my blood test report r as: d.bilirubin-0.3. I.bilirubin-0.5. T.bilirubin -0.8. Sgot-32. Sgpt-36. Can you Please tell me are the report normal? And It is just starting phase. I'm always having a little bit of stomach ache most of the time. can you please tell me what to do?

Hi lybrate-user. According to your reports they seem to be normal. What are the other symptoms you are having now and from how long? Was any other blood test done before and if yes what was the reading? Normally jaundice takes about a month to recover during which a patient has to strictly follow diet and hygiene. No outside food, junk food and heavy fried food should be consumed. Avoid non-vegetarian food if possible for a month. If you do not eat non-veg food / meat / seafood its good. You should only eat boiled vegetables / veg soup along with fresh and ripe fruits like pomegranate, apple, banana whenever possible. Salads with fresh white radish is very good in jaundice. Rice and plain dal or khichadi (yellow moong dal and rice) is best food to consume. Roti / phulka with sabji can be taken as per the appetite. The biggest problem in jaundice is the loss of appetite along with pain in stomach, nausea, occasional vomiting, constipation and yellowishness of the skin with itching. Please observe your symptoms and accordingly follow the right diet. Hope this will help you.

I am 27 years old girl and I have hypothyroid constipation mouth ulcer and body pain headache gallstone and pcos which treatment refer to solve all this problem please suggest.

Hi, Let us deal with your problems one by one. Hypothyroidism - we have to evaluate the cause by doing thyroid scan and if needed fnac (picking up small thyroid tissue with a needle and testing it in lab) if there is any swelling in the thyroid for which cause cannot be identified by clinical examination or imaging (usg scan or ct). For this you may have to consult general surgeon. This is mainly to rule out any cancer. If no cause is identified endocrinologist/general physician to be consulted for treating the problem with drug (thyroxine supplement). Constipation - there are various causes for constipation one of which is hypothyroidism hence if we solve the first problem automatically you might get relieved. But if they are due to some other causes like not taking fibre diet like vegetables and fruits in diet, not taking sufficient water, or some other causes like any problem in the intestine like lumps or hernia or intestinal ulcers or infections. If problem persists after getting treated for hypothyroidism you may consult a general physician after trying conservative measures like 1. Drinking more fluids, 2. Eating more fruits and vegetables. 3. Avoiding junk foods/fast foods/baked items. Mouth ulcer - may be due to vitamin deficiencies or stomach ulcer or any infection. General physical consultation to be done for this. Body pain - may be due to hypothyroidism or due to some infections because when your body combats against infecting organism it will produce pain factors also. To consult general physician will suffice. Head ache - there are various reasons most common among them are tension type (due to stress/mind tension), sinus problem, vision problem and so on. Can try get treated conservatively if not relieved further evaluation might be needed. Moreover constipation itself may cause head ache. Gall stones - surgical treatment is the only option as per allopathy. General surgeon to be consulted. Pcos - cause unknown but risk factors like increased body weight taking some medications may cause this. To consult gynecologist for this. Overall I would suggest some tips to follow (after) if all major diseases are ruled out. 1. Have food on time and take balanced diet avoiding junk/fast foods. Take more water preferably after getting up from bed take 2 glasses of water. 2. Have to manage stress properly be relaxed and live peacefully. Because stress can cause hormonal imbalance like hypothyroidism. Can do meditation. 3. Have a good sound sleep as per your need if sleep is disturbed all body functions will be disturbed. 4. Physical exercise - our physical body is meant for doing physical activities. If we do not do physical exercise daily our body functions will be deranged. Do any exercise daily like running, jogging, walking, swimming, playing, dancing and so on all the best. Feel free to have a private chat with me if any clarification needed. Thank you.

Hi doctor, I am suffering with work anxiety. Lack of sleep, shortness of breath and left shoulder pain are my symptoms. Should I consult cardiologist? Any tips on how to manage stress levels?

Hi doctor, I am suffering with work anxiety. Lack of sleep, shortness of breath and left shoulder pain are my symptom...
You have anxiety neurosis and it is not a problem for the cardiologist. A psychologist will help you better. 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 hinders a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the cardinal symptoms that indicate you're suffering from an anxiety disorder. 1. Troublesome & excess worry - this condition prevails if you worry about the day to day activities too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very common and routine things, related to life or work which tends to affect you in an adverse way. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Lack of sleep/irregular disturbed sleep - problems in falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining an uninterrupted sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. Baseless / 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. One may ear of death or accident or fall from a plane and so on. 4. Muscle pain - muscle discomfort and pain are 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 lethargy or unwillingness to work. 5. Unexplained 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 a sudden urge to defecate on eating, stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhoea. Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviours, self- doubt, and such others. 5. Say an encouraging statement. Positive, accurate statements can help to put things into perspective. See these examples: “anxiety is just a feeling, like any other feeling.” and “this feels bad, but I can use some strategies to cope with it.” 6. Stay connected to others. Social support is vital to managing stress, today, call a loved one, scheduled to go to lunch with a close friend. Talking with others can do a world of good. Another option is to get together and engage in an activity that improves your anxiety, such as taking a walk, sitting on the beach or going to a yoga class. 7. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Managing anxiety is as much about what you do as what you don’t do. And there are some substances that exacerbate anxiety. Caffeine/alcohol is one of those substances. The last thing people with anxiety need is a substance that makes them feel more turned on, which is exactly what caffeine/alcohol does. 8. Avoid mood changing drugs. “while drugs and alcohol might help to reduce anxiety in the short term, they often do just the opposite in the long term,” even the short-term effect can be harmful. Experts have treated countless clients whose first panic attack occurred while they were taking drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy or lsd. “panic attacks are bad enough if you are straight and sober, so imagine how bad they are if you are high, and can’t get untied until the drug wears off.” 9. Do something you enjoy. Engaging in enjoyable activities helps to soothe your anxiety. For instance, today, you might take a walk, listen to music or read a book, 10. Take a break. It’s also helpful to build breaks into your day. As it is said, this might be a “simple change of pace or scenery, enjoying a hobby, or switching ‘to-do’ tasks.” “breaking from concerted effort can be refreshing.” 11. Solve problem it is suggested considering how you can address the stressors that are causing your anxiety. Today, make a list of these stressors and next to each one, jot down one or two solutions. 12. Read a book. There are many valuable resources on anxiety, which teach you effective coping skills. Some recommended are dying of embarrassment for people with social anxiety; the bdd workbook for body dysmorphic disorder; the imp of the mind and the ocd workbook for obsessive-compulsive disorder. And it is suggested, "stop obsessing" for adults with ocd (and up and down the worry hill for kids with ocd). For people with panic attacks, it is suggested don’t panic: taking control of anxiety attacks. For a general overview of cognitive-behavioural therapy for anxiety, 13. Engage in calming practices. “meditation, yoga, or other calming practices can help minimize anxiety in both the short and long term.” sign up for a yoga class or watch a yoga video online. Meditate right now for just three minutes and do for yoga 14. Consult a therapist. Sometimes anxiety can be difficult to manage without professional help, many organizations include databases of providers who specialize in anxiety (along with helpful information). 15. Accept your anxiety. If you really want to effectively manage your anxiety, the key is to accept it, “this might sound strange. But anxiety, “in and of itself,” isn’t the real problem. Instead, it’s our attempts at controlling and eliminating it, not accepting these unwanted inner experiences is the actual source of self-induced suffering.” accepting anxiety doesn’t mean “resigning" ourselves to a life of anxious misery. It simply means that we are better off recognizing and fully accepting the existence of anxiety and other uncomfortable emotional states that are inevitable, but transitory. So if you experience anxiety today, simply observe it. “think of it like a wave of the ocean; allow it to come in, experience it, and ride it out.” anxiety can feel overwhelming. It can feel like chains around your feet, weighing you down. But by taking small steps – like the ones above – you can minimize your anxiety and cope effectively. Have a peaceful life ahead.
