Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Height is determined by heredity and there are no short cuts or miracle drugs. You are already 23. Beyond this age height nevef improves. Don't worry about it. 5 feet 6 inch is not as bad as a height. Don't be emotional. You need online counselling. Take care.

Suffering from tremendous anxiety for my entrance exam, hampering personal relationships, health even normal day to day behavior, sudden mood swing, always preoccupied by single thought. Am i suffering from any serious disorder or is it normal?

Anxiety isn't bad its just a reaction to stress. Its normal & beneficial in some situations but for some of us, however, anxiety can become excessive and distressing psychological problem that affects quality of life and interferes with functioning in every sphere of life. Anxiety disorder has different symptoms, but all the symptoms have excessive, irrational fear and dread in common. Psychological counselling is known to have beneficial effects along with medicines. Certain lifestyle changes can also help persons with anxiety issues lead a normal life & be your confident self again. To specifically target your anxiety problems I need to know your age, if you have been taking alcohol ? / have you been smoking? what are other situations that makes you anxious ? come back with this information so that I can help you overcome your fears/ embarrassment (if any) and you can gradually be your usual self again.

Heel Pain: Know The Causes Behind It!

Heel Pain: Know The Causes Behind It!

Oh my aching Heel!! The combination of foot and ankle consists of 26 bones, 33 joints and an excess of 100 tendons. The longest bone present in the foot is the heel. Over usage or injury to the heel would lead you to experience pain in the heels. The severity of the heel pain can range from mild to excruciating. 

The cause behind heel pain is typically associated with excess usage of the heel bone. Straining of your heel occurs if you excessively pound your feet on surfaces that are hard, or you are overweight or even if you wear shoes that do not fit your feet properly. These strains cause irritation in the muscles, bones or tendons that are present in the heels. Some of the other common causes include: 

  1. Heel Spurs: Development of heel spurs occurs due to the continuous stretching of the lining, which covers the heel. Upon continuous stretching, pieces of the lining tend to break off. Development of heel spurs is common in athletes who frequently jog or run. People who are obese also tend to experience pain due to heel spurs. 
  2. Plantar Fasciitis: Development of Plantar Fasciitis occurs due to the inflammation of the tendinous tissue that connects the heel to the ball of the foot. Development of Plantar Fasciitis is common in athletes who frequently jog or run as well as people who wear shoes that don't fit the feet properly. It may occasionally be associated with Vitamin B12 deficiency and raised uric acid in blood 
  3. Achilles Tendinitis: This is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Achilles Tendinitis occurs commonly in people who have active lifestyles, such as people who are joggers, runners or even dancers. 

Treatment-

Physical therapy, medication or alternative treatments can be used to treat this form of pain. Medications for heel pain can only be in the form of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although these oral medications cannot significantly relieve heel pain, some injections containing substances such as corticosteroids, as well as Arthrocentesis (removal of fluid present in joints using hollow needles) might be able to provide relief. Recently PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection have been found very useful in treating recalcitrant Plantar fasciitis and heel pains. 

Common practices that can be used to relieve discomfort include: 

  1. Application of ice to the heel for a duration of 15 minutes daily. 
  2. Utilize over-the-counter pain medications.
  3. Have adequate amounts of rest.
  4. Wear shoes that fit properly.
  5. Walking on tip toes to stretch the plantar fascia helps to relieve heel pain.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am consulting for my mother she is about 37 year old and her problem is psychological She thinks that in out neighborhood a man is sitting and spying on us and he hears what we say in our house she says she hears person saying same sentence that we say in our house And seriously my father and me don't hear any thing Sometimes she says some boys come in a car abuse us and go away She keep saying that pg in house facing us always say "pani nhi dalla pani nahi dalla" and abuse us She get aggressive 2 to 3 times at day at anybody and says he was saying" sa safaie saf safai" And me and my dad says :what! And she leaves without saying anything She shouts loud at standing at windows to people she think are spying on us After this thing continued for weeks I did some digging and I was thinking about schizophrenia I just needed a professional opinion And it will be your kind help if I get a reply.

She is getting paranoid and if it is paranoid schizophrenia she needs immediate help from a couple of professionals and for a long time too: a counselor and a psychiatrist. It is better for a doctor to diagnose her and get the right type of intervention for her, immediately. This is a serious condition and you should stop trying yoru own techniques, which may worsen her condition. The earlier you seek help for her the prognosis is better. She must be monitored to follow all the prescriptions and is occupied with mind engaging activities. Never let her be alone and you must always engage her in socializing, first within the home and later you may take her out as she improves. She must follow an exercise regiment, a tight time schedule, proper diet, and sleep. Lay people's help will come in handy, if they follow the medical prescriptions.

Regarding masturabtion it's perfectly fine if you feel like doing it and it will also help you to release your stress!

So cheer up May be your mettal is to be tested and like so many greats who are also having the same problem you might be in league with them.

Hello. Antidepressants will give relief as long as you take them and it is mainly symptomatic relief. To target the disease I suggest you go for homeopathic treatment which will treat you as a whole and give you general well being. You can contact me on private chat for further discussion or treatment. Meanwhile, try to get good sleep, drink upto 2.5 litres of water daily, do some deep breathing exercises to relax and go for early morning walks.
