Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. You are experiencing depressive symptoms. Increasing irritability, lethargy, easy fatiguability and low mood are all initial symptoms in depression. You need to undergo serum thyroid level, Vit B12, Vit D3 level test first. Deficiency of above thing also cause such symptoms. Good medicine and psychological therapy are available for your condition. I would advise you to consult psychiatrist. Till then start exercise, listen to loud music, spend time with good friend. All d best.

I am a chain smoker, I smoke daily 2 packets of cigarettes each packet contact 10 cigarettes. To get me out of this what should I do suggest me plz.

You are indeed a heavy smoker and need to stop immediately. Initially it will appear difficult but if you are determined, you will overcome this habit. You are certainly playing dangerously with your life. Go to your physician and get a thorough medical check done with particular emphasis on your symptoms. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hello Lybrate-user, Medications would only help you in controlling your depressive symptoms, and medications in the long run would create mostly dependency. In order to be able to deal with depression you need to go under Psychotherapy. Along with visiting us at our clinic, we also provide online as well as telephonic counseling sessions.

Continue gingo biloba 1x tabs for 3 months. After that you take the medicine alternate days for a month. Then once in 3 days for a month. Then weekly once for 2 months. Then you can stop. Immediate stoppage can reverse the symptoms. Tapering the dose is the correct method. And also you must think positive always that my memory is good. Everything become alright even if I stop my medicines. Be cool be relaxed. Nothing to worry.

I am 39 years old and am suffering from a schizoaffective thought disorder. I keep thinking the same thought over and over again sometimes even talk to an imaginary person for hours on end. Am in the habit of procrastinating everything.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are more than in the habit of procrastination. I hope you are under some form of treatment from a doctor. This is a very disturbing development and I do not know for how long you have been having these traits. The talking to an imaginary person is a way of disconnecting with reality and can make you quite dysfunctional. Apart from meeting with a doctor you must meet with a counselor also and continue with both treatments with full cooperation. Please do not neglect this condition any further and seek help fast.

Hi doctor, how are you. I am middle class, male, 36, from india living in a metro city. I lost my father a long time ago and my mother 3 years ago. By profession, I am an un-successful software engineer. My marriage broke few years ago (it was a 3 months marriage, no children) and my wife harassed me a lot due to one sided laws in india. I have a fight with both my sisters. At present, I am living alone (with my dog). In the past few years, I have taken a lot of emotional stress due to which my health deteriorated a lot. Now, my problem is that when ever I get angry, there is a lot of pain in my kidneys. I think there is a huge problem in the lower abdominal part of my body but its not showing anything serious when I conducted the normal whole-body test. What do you suggest about my problem? Should I go for some advanced tests?

It clearly indicates that when there is no identifiable medical reason for your problem, there is definitely a psychosomatic one for the same. Of course an advanced test may prove me wrong but from the description of all the failed relationships you have had so far and the lack of success at yoru job does indicate a man of many sorrows and stresses. If the underlying reason is not identified, especially emotions, it is very likely that you are giving yourself some bodily ailments and it will be wise to pursue a line of treatment to deal with the emotional component. You will probably save a lot of medical expense and further complications, and learn to live a life of good cheer.

It is most likely a sinister sign called hematemesis. Even small blood vomit should not be neglected. Drinking alcohol as you say also falls under dependence. Consult a gastro for blood vomit and psychiatrist to stop alcohol. All the best.

Every individual has his/her own strength and capability to do different things in different fields. Try to find out your strength and work on it. Its a good thing that you have started to analyse yourself and found out your problem. Now its time to sort it out. Start fixing a small goals which u can achieve easily. Then slowly raise up your goals to different level. Comparing ourselves with others can not solve the problems. People with whom you are comparing will also have problems which are invisible to you. So just forget about others and move forward in your own way. First our ambition should be to achieve happiness. Then you can win anything you want. All the best.

You are in a very complicated situation: having bipolar can increase your sex drive to very high levels. In your case it has stoked the desire but not the performance. In any case seeking love for your sister-in-law is not permissible and it cannot be one-way, either. Fortunately, she does not know it is a blessing. Neither should you think that marrying someone else to forget her is going to solve the problem: you seem like you cannot fulfill your sexual desires and cannot consummate the marriage. So can you see how complicated your problem is? first things first; you need to see how well your treatment is working out for you. Secondly, you must work with a counselor too to maximize the benefits of combined therapies. You must also discuss your sexual fantasies with the counselor and get some guidance as to how to handle it. In a probable situation you may be asked to leave this house or ask the brother and his wife to shift to another home! you must also discuss if the sexual problems you are having is a result of the effects of the medication, and see if alternative medications may be tried. For you to be in a position to marry someone, you must get well and have proper employment etc. The starting of a family entails some genetic counseling, where it may ill-advised to have children. I really respect you for having kept your control around your sister-in-law, and it is recommended take effective action to maintain it so. Bipolar can be a crippling disease if not treated, and if treated early, the prognosis is good. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication, and other things like marrying your sister-in-law. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Sir I am a male 15 years old , how to strengthen our mind to overcome exams and stress.
Strengthening mind and dealing with stress is a process. There is no formula as to strengthen mind and drive away stress. Stress is omnipresent, and you have to acknowledge its presence, learn ways to use it to your benefits and deal with it effectively by training your mind almost everyday. One such effective way is by learning the relaxation response. You can start by practicing ways of relaxation like deep breathing exercises, yoga, mediation etc. Consult a stress management expert or a psychiatrist in your vicinity personally.

Parkinson's disease-KAMPAVATA
(A Neurological Disorder)
Parkinson's disease is a neurological disease, or brain disorder, that leads to progressive difficulty with balance and coordination. In people who have Parkinson's disease, nerve cells in a region of the brain known as the substantia nigra become damaged or die. These cells are important because they produce the chemical dopamine, which helps to coordinate body movement-basal ganglia.
When dopamine-producing cells degenerate/die, the areas in the brain that control movement can no longer function properly, and symptoms of Parkinson's disease eventually develop.
Parkinson?s Disease Prevalence:-
Parkinson's disease can affect anyone, but it most often occurs in people who are over the age of 50. Only 15 percent of Parkinson's disease patients are diagnosed before they are 50 years old.
The prevalence of Parkinson's disease is nearly the same in both men and women, and recovery rate is more in men. People with a family history of Parkinson's may have a higher risk of developing the disease, but Parkinson's disease is rarely attributed to genetics alone.
Parkinson's Disease Symptoms
Symptoms of Parkinson's disease usually develop after about 80 percent of the brain's dopamine-producing cells are lost. The Main symptoms of Parkinson's disease include:
? Tremors(Kampam)- Tremulousness (uncontrolled shaking or trembling) of the hands, arms, legs, face, body is often one of the first indicators of Parkinson's disease.
? Rigidity. Profound stiffness or an inability to easily move the arms, legs, and trunk, pain and stiffness on neck muscles is another hallmark of Parkinson's.
? Bradykinesia:- describes the unnaturally slow movements that are characteristic of people with Parkinson's disease.
? Poor balance- Parkinson's disease affects balance, leading to difficulty walking and impaired coordination.
The symptoms of Parkinson's are generally mild at first, but become more severe over time, until they eventually interfere with your daily routine. This is usually the point when treatment is recommended.
The Outlook for People with Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive condition, which means it is a lifelong disease that worsens over time when it is not treated properly.
Each individual's situation is different, but in general, the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease usually don't require treatment and may be restricted to one area or one side of the body.
Movement of symptoms to the other side of the body
? Tremors that become more pronounced and interfere with activities
? Bradykinesia, or slow movement, that becomes disabling
? Difficulty with hand writing
? Impaired swallowing and chewing
? Speech that becomes monotone
? Poor balance and repeated falls
? Slow, shuffling gait (manner of walking)
? Stooped posture
? Facial expressions that become stiff and blank
? Chronic constipation
? Poor bladder control
? Sleep disturbances
This progression is gradual in most people, but it may happen faster in some than others. Understandably, stress caused by the progression of the disease can lead to anxiety and depression.

Ayurveda Treatment:

There is cure for Parkinson's disease with Ayurveda treatment, With Ayurveda medicines and treatments we can relieve symptoms, slow down the progression and then we can completely arrest further degeneration of the of the cells, thereby we can completely control and cure the disease. If you are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, it is important to work closely with your medical team, so your medications can be regularly adjusted to help you remain as functional as possible for as long as possible.
As far as Parkinson's disease is concerned this is a brain related issue, so will surely effect the mind; so I recommend 49% treatment to patients and 51% treatment to family members.

Suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety pls help me best treatment and medicine m 23 unmarried boy.

Suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety pls help me best treatment and medicine m 23 unmarried boy.
Hi, Can totally understand your situation, how scary it would be. While, medication part is to be dealt by a psychiatrist I can tell you its psychosocial management being a psychologist. You need a detailed analysis and plan to over come agoraphobia for which you can consult me. As for now Learning more about agoraphobia and its association with panic disorder and panic attacks may help you control your symptoms better. For example, there are techniques you can use during a panic attack to bring your emotions under control. Having more confidence in controlling your emotions may make you more confident in coping with previously uncomfortable situations and environments. These self-help techniques are described below. Stay where you are and try to resist the urge to run to a place of safety during a panic attack. If driving, pull over and park where it is safe to do so. Focus. It's important for you to focus on something non-threatening and visible, such as the time passing on your watch, or items in a supermarket. Remind yourself that the frightening thoughts and sensations are a sign of panic and will eventually pass. Breathe slowly and deeply. Feelings of panic and anxiety can get worse if you breathe too quickly. Try to focus on slow, deep breathing while counting slowly to three on each breath in and out. Challenge your fear. Try to work out what it is you fear and challenge it. You can achieve this by constantly reminding yourself that what you fear isn't real and will pass. Creative visualisation. During a panic attack, try to resist the urge to think negative thoughts such as" disaster" Instead, think of a place or situation that makes you feel peaceful, relaxed or at ease. Once you have this image in your mind, try to focus your attention on it. Don't fight an attack. Trying to fight the symptoms of a panic attack can often make it worse. Instead, reassure yourself by accepting that although it may seem embarrassing, and your symptoms may be difficult to deal with, your attack isn't life-threatening. Making some changes to your lifestyle can also help. For example, ensure that you: Take regular exercise – exercise can relieve stress and tension and improve your mood Eat a healthy diet – a poor diet can make the symptoms of panic and anxiety worse Avoid using drugs and alcohol – they may provide short-term relief but in the long term they can make symptoms worse Avoid drinks containing caffeine, such as tea, coffee or cola –caffeine has a stimulant effect and can make your symptoms worse. You need to practice deep breathing daily for 5-10 minutes. A cognitive behavioral therapy would work best for which we require dialogue. Get back to me for any query. All the best.
