Severe body pain can be due to following reasons: 1. Viral infections, such as common cold, influenza, diarrhoea, etc. 2. Inadequate rest/sleep. 3. Excessive stress. 4. Low levels of vitamin D. 5. Low levels of haemoglobin. 6. Muscle or bone diseases. Once identified, body ache can be easily treated. Please don't ignore body ache, while mostly innocuous, makes sense ruling out other troublesome issues.

My wife has panic attacks while traveling in vehicles . In trains also she has such attacks but only in general compartments but she is ok in AC coaches. Due to this anxiety of traveling she is distracted from doing her daily chores as a homemaker. Please advice

Masters in counseling psychology, Counseling psychologist, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapist
Psychologist, Mumbai
You need to first get her evaluated by a psychiatrist to find out if its an anxiety disorder. If she is fine in AC coaches it may be anxiety due to specific event or place, like crowded place or for security in general compartments. It can be an insecurity which causes the anxiety like safety issues. That needs to be analyzed. If she is being dysfunctional take her to a psychiatrist for treatment. Simultaneous counseling is needed.

Some times I tend to be too emotional. I feel like may be I m unknowingly feeling depressed and that anxiety is turned into extreme sense of emotions that even makes me cry very much. What do you suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think you are right about the possible depression, which is sadness based. The anxiety is fear based and may cause you undue distress. These emotions must be expressed, and ideally with a counselor. You may need to learn much about emotions too, and the counselor will meet that need too. First, visit the counselor and discuss your problem at length. If necessary take your parents and your entire developmental history from prenatal days till today. Also it would help if you took your family history from your grandparents onwards. The counselor will help identify the origins and give you a series of things to do. If your depression is really severe, that person may suggest a doctor? s visit too. Now cooperate with both of the therapies for the best results, for a substantially long time. Do not discontinue the counseling, if you are on medication. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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. Your asthma suggests that you have unexpressed feelings of sadness and fear that may in fact show signs of improvement as soon as you deal with these feelings! whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings too. Don? t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. You are young and you can do it with some commitment.

Hi. One of my friend when listen any kind of gossip in which she relates. She think about that word for whole day. Sometime she weep and get angry. Like usne aisa kyu kaha . Wo mere bare me aisa kyu sochta hai. Maine sab khata kar dia. Like that. Pls give me advice how I help her.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Pl ask her to not listen or indulge in mundane gossip which can wander the mind to disturbing thoughts and making angry. Ask her to keep mind busy in constructive activities so that mind does not get space for such gossip. From whereever and whenever the mind wanders due to it's unsteady and flickering nature, one should certainly it back under one's control. It may not be easy but it comes by practice. Hope this helps.

How to get rid of the addiction of drinking? Will there be any problem if a person stops drinking if he has addiction of drinking. What will be the consequences?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be a life-threatening condition in people who have been drinking heavily and then either stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption. Symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, persist for weeks, and range from mild anxiety and shakiness to severe complications, such as seizures and delirium tremens (also called DTs). The death rate from DTs -- which are characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever -- is estimated to range from 1% to 5%. Because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can rapidly worsen, it's important to seek medical attention even if symptoms are seemingly mild. Appropriate alcohol withdrawal treatments can reduce the risk of developing withdrawal seizures or DTs. It's especially important to see a doctor if you have other health conditions such as infections, heart disease, lung disease, or a history of seizures. If seizures, fever, severe confusion, hallucinations, or irregular heartbeats occur, take the patient to an emergency room. With regard to quitting alcohol you need to follow these recommendations: You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

How to increase concentration power, building strong emotion and how to maintain it?

MSC Psychotherapy & Counselling, CHt Hypnotherapy, MD Alternative Medicine, MBBS, Diploma in Public Health
Psychologist, Mumbai
Self hypnosis and mindfulness meditations help to improve concentration and we can learn to handle our emotions as well by releasing stress. You may simply start with mindful breathing. The purpose of this exercise is to simply notice, accept and be aware of your breath. When our breathing relaxes our muscles relax. Our mind relaxes and anxiety goes away, we are better able to focus then. Procedure Sit quietly in a chair with both feet on the ground and your hands in your lap. Allow yourself to feel centred in the chair. Bring all of your attention to the physical act of breathing. Start to notice the breath as it enters your body through your nose and travels to your lungs. Notice with curiosity whether the inward and outward breaths are cool or warm, and notice where the breath travels as it enters and departs. Also notice the breath as your lungs relax and you inhale through your nose. Don’t try to do anything with your breathing – simply notice it, pay attention to it and be aware of it. It doesn’t matter if your breathing is slow or fast, deep or shallow; it just is what it is. Allow your body to do what it does naturally. You be the witness to this process. Initially start with 10 minutes twice a day. Then slowly increase time. Wish you all the best.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi Please practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice it daily morning and evening at set time. Apart form this consult a psychologist for counseling and psychotherapy. Counseling se aap behtar mehsus karenge, aap ke problem ke root tak jana zaruri hai

You should not take more than 2 peg a day for not more than 2 days a week. If you take alcohol as advised than it will not harm you. Always ear some snacks along with alcohol because having only alcohol increase the chance of low blood sugar.

HI lybrate-user, its really nice to see you so accepting of the situation and so supportive. First of all, she needs thorough counseling and psychotherapy. You should consult a psychologist this. Another thing start medication for depression or what we call PTSD post traumatic stress disorder. She is quite shaken by the incident and has developed symptoms of PTSD. Its curable with no side effect but its very necessary for her to have counseling. Be supportive as usual, take her out and we need to address the issue of her being in contact with her ex. You can consult me for same all the very best.

Why all religions prohibit alcohol if it is good for health ? Those who drink say that it is the best enjoyment and stress buster, then why doctors never prescribe it ? I am not a religious bigot, I just was to know the scientific position. What is the moderate quantity ? Personally, it is my experience that any drink makes us dull and less alert, whereas I like to be always alert except in sleep. I have seem that those who drink regularly lose their conscience at sublets level which they themselves realize. Even if alcoholic drinks provide temporary enjoyment, problems resurface as soon as effect is over. Please clarify the confusion.

You are absolutely right that after the effects of the alcohol are over, the demons coma back and sometimes with a vengeance! Not all religions prohibit alcohol consumption: they prohibit drunkenness. The clear evidence from science is that an average man who keeps himself fit can have two drinks a day, and a woman one drink a day, and for some reason, it is good to lower LDL, the bad cholesterol. The reason even doctors are afraid to share this information is that people can, in the guise of this finding, drink in excess and never know when to stop. Alcohol is a CNS depressant and can lower your alertness and delay your responses. On the other hand, that same influence relaxes you and lightens your burdens to ease some stress. However, it is the excess consumption and the loss of control that invites so much trouble.

Mr. lybrate-user, Usually when TSH level is between 6 to 9.9 mU/L, condition is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism and no treatment is advocated. Sometime treatment is given if there is associated low T4 level and patient has severe symptoms of hypothyroidism. Since you have been already taking the drug, there is no option but to continue it. TSH 4.9 is with in the normal range, however, if you stop treatment, it will again go up. Thanks.

My sister' s right hand shivers when she does any kind of work. It has also become weaker. The problem has emerged since last one year or so. Her age is 45+ years. Regular medication also doesn' t help. Please suggest any other treatment or medicines for curing or controlling this problem. I think it is a case of essential tremor, but some docs say its parkinson' s disease. Does parkinson' s disease afflict people before 50 years. Please help with your expertise.

If it is benign essential tremors as neurologiosts have diagnozed, then you may have to follow up the treatment with them regularly. If there is no rigidity, slowness in walking or emotional nonreactivity then think in terms of parkinson' s disease. Otherwise consult the necessary doctor regularly.
