Stress: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Stress, when defined commonly, refers to the feeling that a person may experience when they are overloaded (mostly emotionally and psychologically) and they are struggling to cope up with the demands of everyday life, whether personal or professional. Stress is actually a mechanism of the body by which it protects you. When a person perceives danger, the body’s defenses start working and they exhibit a rapid, automatic response known as the ‘ fight or flight response’ or the ‘stress response’. When a person feels threatened, the nervous system releases a number of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol and these prepare the body for an emergency response. The manifestations of this condition include increased heart beat, muscle tightening, high blood pressure, quicker breaths and sharpening of senses. These changes help a person to focus, speed his/her reaction time and also increases strength and stamina.

Stress can manifest itself in a number of different ways. The cognitive symptoms of stress include memory problems, anxiety, poor judgement, constant worrying and negative thoughts. The emotional symptoms may include depression, moodiness, anxiety, loneliness and isolation, a feeling of being overwhelmed and other mental problems. The physical symptoms include aches, pains, nausea, dizziness, loss of sex drive, rapid heartbeat and chest pain.

Some of the ways by which stress can be managed are being aware of how much stress a person is under, determine which factors are causing stress to increase in your life, taking charge and deal with the unhelpful sources of stress before they snowball into something unbearable and making prudent choices regarding your life so that he/she can deal with stress better. However, sometimes,a person may be prescribed sleep inducing pills or anxiety management medications if they are having too much difficulty in coping with stress.

How is the treatment done?

One of the most effective ways to deal with stress is to lead an active lifestyle. Doctors all over world advise people to incorporate some exercises in their routine so that they can better deal with stress. Regular exercise helps to elevate the mood and allows you escape from the cycle of negative thoughts that cause stress. Exercises like running, jogging, walking, swimming and cycling help you to deal with stress effectively. If a person is feeling agitated or insecure, there is no better way to relieve stress than to have a face-to-face conversation with another human being. A friendly conversation with another human being helps to calm and soothe the nervous system. A person without any close social relationships should make it a point to develop strong bonds.

Engaging any of your five senses namely- touch, sight, sound, smell and taste can help to effectively deal with stress. A person might get de-stressed by eating or someone might feel relaxed by listening to his/her favorite song. Similarly, relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing help a person to reach a state of restfulness that is complete opposite to the state of feeling stressed. Regular practice of these techniques will help a person to deal with the symptoms of stress more effectively.

Finally, a healthy diet can go a long way to help a person to deal with stress. Food eaten can help to improve or worsen a person’s mood and so, it is imperative to include foods rich in proteins, fresh vegetables and fruits in the diet. Stress can be dealt with a proper night’s sleep. However, people are often prescribed medicines to deal with anxiety and depression by a doctor.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Any person can suffer from stress as it a normal bodily reaction to feelings of demand or threat. The treatment for stress normally does not include any medication but involves making substantial changes in the lifestyle of the concerned person. So a person is eligible for treatment of stress if he/she experiences the symptoms associated with stress. There can be different types of manifestations of the symptoms of stress. They are physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioral. A person can undergo treatment if he/she experiences any of these symptoms.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

The treatment for stress generally involves making some behavioral and lifestyle changes in a person suffering from stress. This mode of treatment does not have any side-effects and nobody in general is ineligible for this treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Some of the side-effects of medicines to treat anxiety are low blood pressure, nausea, libido, depression, lack of coordination, emotional dysfunction, memory loss and decrease in IQ. A person suffering from stress may take anti-depressants to alleviate the symptoms. The side-effects of anti-depressants include headache, sexual dysfunction, diarrhea, dizziness and weight gain/loss. The behavioral therapy and lifestyle changes do not produce much side-effects.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

It is difficult to point out the post-treatment guidelines for stress as the condition requires constant monitoring and management. However, there are some guidelines that a person can follow to prevent stress after he/she has undertaken stress management procedure and taken medications. These are: reducing intake of alcohol, drugs and caffeine as these substances make the condition worse. A person should be a little organized and focus on what is important rather than losing their sleep over trivial issues. A person should put some time aside for himself/herself each day so that he/she can use that time to relax, organize and do whatever he/she wants to do.

How long does it take to recover?

Stress is a condition where a person’s body responds to perceptions of stress or danger. It is essentially an emotional and psychological condition that can be triggered by a number of ways. A person can use stress management techniques, self-help techniques and medication to keep stress at bay. But the recovery depends on the resolve of the patient and also on his ability to address the root of the problem. Hence, it is difficult to determine how long it will take to overcome stress.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

A doctor may charge anything between Rs 500 – Rs 1500 for a check-up. He will provide useful tips about how to keep stress at bay. Antidepressants may cost anything between Rs 26 – Rs 1650 in India and it depends on the composition and quantity of the medicine. A person can suffer from stress due to some mental condition. Treatment of stress, in this case, will require the treatment of the mental disorder. In such a scenario, a person will have to spend much more.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Stress is an emotional and psychological response to some external trigger. There are different approaches by which stress can be managed. However, there is no permanent treatment for stress as a person may feel stressed due to a number of factors even after undergoing treatment. He will have to adhere to some strict guidelines and will have to make serious lifestyle changes to prevent stress. However, this is not always possible in today’s cut-throat world.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Some research studies have shown that the effects of white passionflower are comparable to benzodiazepine drugs and, thus, can be used to treat stress. A good massage by a trained person can help to relieve stress almost immediately. Today’s generation are hooked onto their gadgets- whether it is mobile or laptop or tablet. Disconnecting from these gadgets can help to relax and ultimately prevent oneself from getting stressed. Aromatherapy can also bring immediate relief from stress by elevating mood, reducing anxiety and helping the person to focus and concentrate.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - 4 Things That Can Lead To It!

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - 4 Things That Can Lead To It!

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious mental health condition that can affect every aspect of a person’s life. With proper management, therapy and support, this disorder can be successfully treated.

PTSD Causes 
Researchers usually believe that post-traumatic stress disorder is not caused by any one single factor. Rather, a variety of predispositions and risk factors, work together that leads to the development of PTSD following a traumatic event. The most commonly cited causes are:

  1. Genetic Factors: Anxiety disorders are hereditary and PTSD also tends to run in families. People having first-degree relatives struggling with any anxiety disorder are at a higher risk of developing the disorder themselves. While it is not a definitive cause for PTSD, exposure to a traumatic event does make a person more vulnerable to developing the disorder.
  2. Environmental Causes: Those having a history of trauma or stress are more susceptible to PTSD than those who do not have a similar history. Children growing up in families marred by addiction problems are more predisposed to such a condition.
  3. Brain Structures: Certain areas of the brain that are believed to regulate fear and emotions are varied in people diagnosed with this condition as compared to them who have not developed PTSD after a traumatic event.
  4. Psychological Factors: People struggling with certain types of mental disorders, notably depression and anxiety are at a greater risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder.


PTSD is caused due to exposure to a traumatic incident or frightening event such as sexual assault, natural disaster, war, accidents or the threat of death/death or any grave illness to one’s self or a dear one. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a lifelong consequence of any such extreme traumatic event that affects a person’s ability to deal with such an incident.

  • Most of the times, people having been exposed to trauma develop feelings of shock, fear, anger, anxiety and guilt.
  • These reactions are completely normal in regard to an unnatural event and eventually fade over time. A person diagnosed with PTSD develops unusual strong feelings post such an event that they hinder the person from leading a meaningful (normal) life. Sadly, the symptoms of PTSD don’t fade with time and these feelings amplify till the person is so overwhelmed that they are unable to function.
  • This disorder can occur at any age. It has even been observed during the first year of an individual’s life. Symptoms generally begin to appear by the first three months following the traumatic incident but it can also start showing up months or years later.
  • Certain individuals who have been exposed to a disturbing experience might develop symptoms of PTSD directly after experiencing such an event. This is known as acute stress disorder. People having acute stress disorder experience a varying amalgamation and duration of the symptoms, but most of them usually recover within three months of the causative event.

Some people with an acute stress disorder experience prolonged periods of symptoms that may be triggered by memories of the traumatic incident. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Going through traumatic events is quite normal and each and every individual goes through phases, where they encounter events filled with trauma and those who have long-lasting effect on their minds.

Dear Lybrate user, It is a very important phase of life for you and your child and I really appreciate the fact that you are seeking professional help regarding the same. Your child might be feeling scare or apprehensive in being with people other than his immediate family. If this is a recent development, there is a probability that something significant has happened or that your child is apprehensive of something bad happening. It is imperative that you talk to your child and ask what exactly is going through his mind, what is he thinking. Make him feel comfortable and secure with your presence and encourage him to speak up what's on his mind. If it still persists, I would advise you to meet a Child Psychologist in person and seek professional help as the professionals are well-trained in dealing with such issues in children. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

I am a married woman of age 25. I am married for 5 years. I am very much depressed. I have no one to share my grief. Me and my husband were on and off in a relationship. And we were not able to lead a normal relationship as of other couples. He is the one who chased at back of me saying that he loved me and made me fall for him. Yes ours is a love marriage, but It never felt like it from the beginning. We had lots of issues even before marriage. Lots of his behaviour changed after I accepted his proposal. He totally changed into a different person and all of his behaviors were bad. I am the one who took care of all the expenses of him even before marriage but still He stole money from me. He would lie to me for unwanted things. Even though I knew all this He was my first love As I loved him so much truly I couldn't change my feelings for him. My parents didn't accept as he was uneducated unemployed and of his family status etc. After a long struggle my parents accepted our marriage as I was so stubborn. I thought he would change after marriage. But I was wrong, it even became worse after marriage. Most of my nights were sad and lonely. I always cried myself to sleep. We didn't even have sex from the beginning. He was always sleeping. He doesn't seem to have any interest in me. At first I didn't think it as a big problem. I thought he might be tired. But as days rolled by this distance even grew even wider. I wanted a baby so bad. Many times I even expressed my desire to have sex leaving behind my dignity. But he refused saying any petty reasons and never gave any importance to my feelings even once. He totally neglected me. He constantly picking up fights argue with me hit me and leaves the house wouldn't show up and wouldn't even pick up my calls. every time I would be worrying crying without knowing where he was. He would steal money from me. He even stole my engagement ring and sold it. I found the receipt and When I asked about it he was so adamant and he argues he didn't do it. He kept all my jewelry in pawn broker shop and never got them back. I have been facing issues my whole married life But each time I was the one who apologizes and make things normal. He doesn't even accepts his mistake. Even I have been in same house without talking to him for days which he does even care to bother. I have been adjusting so much to make things work and I am sick of it. So I couldn't take it anymore I came back to my parents house. Since then I have not heard a word from him. I am very much depressed and stressed. I lost my father earlier this year who was my only support which broke me down even more. I have no one else so I called my husband for help. But nothing functions for him if money is not involved. So I gave him a lakh and so to take care of the last rituals of my father. And after that he would come and sleep at my house at night as I was alone. One day I was going through the cupboard and found out that my father's jewelry was missing. But I have seen them the previous day took them cleaned them and kept it again in the cupboard. I was searching the whole house turning it upside down. Only my husband came he was the one who stole it. It was my father's favorite ring he was wearing it almost 30 years ever since he got engaged to my mom. I treasure it in his memory. I was begging him to give it back I even told him I would give him how much ever money he asked but he was so cruel showed no mercy I was shattered. I don't know what to do. I don't know how much does I have to go through to be in this relationship. I don't have any other choice. I am afraid to live alone in this cruel world. Is there any way for me. Please help I don't have anyone.

Der lybrate-user, Psychological disorders is of biopsychosocial causation. Heredity, our own experiences and environment all these 3 things would affect our mental health. Another aspect is your diagnosis, speak to a lizenced mental health professional and get evaluated. If its just mild anxiety it should not be of much concern. Anyway, meet a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist and get an opinion. All the best sangeetha.

Stress Management Techniques
So let's define stress before we move to stress management. Stress is defined as an adverse reaction to external pressures or an environment which produces an unwanted and difficult response in a person is usually and agent biological chemical environmental psychological or social which will produce stress in an organisation or an individual the types of stresses change from person to person this is very important to understand what may be stressful to you and me we not necessarily be stressful to another person. it is ok to be stressed out about your exams about your work, about how you are going to deal with things and it's also ok to be stressed out about what it is going to rain like and whether you want to be able to catch the local home or not so why am I talking to you about this and what is it was there and you tell you will frankly the twist is this we all have stress.

As adults we are stressed out about job responsibilities spouses are getting one is required as working women we have stress and the thought of stress that you is pretty hard as executive with 5 day week also the sort of decisions that would take and the sort of people that you respond to and the degree of decisions that you take can produce stress with Hindi. So beyond this just remember if nothing else we tend to live in Bombay and in Metro areas so if you do anything like living in a metro area you are going to have enough amount of stresses whether you got that the 929 train 19031 train makes a huge difference to when you reach home and when you reach office that itself is quite the belligerent enough to produce stress.

In any person now how important is this when it is important because you need to understand that stress is pretty much going to be an part of your life stress is going to be present and it is not always one particular stress which produces the adverse reaction it can vary from person to person and more importantly stress is going to be multifactorial. So your response to does not have to be limited to correcting the one absolutely correct your core open mechanism and you will rectify the amount of stress you are able to you and handle before you move on allow me to get a little bit technical stress is a biological phenomenon and it is a part of your response system there is a stress response system in your brain which is activated through your brain through the cortisol through the adrenal glands and it is essential to your survival so remember this stress is not something that you take but pretty much a response system inbuilt in your body.

The trick is trying to manage so that it doesn't overwhelm you so what are the red flags of stress and why do we need to worry about it if I had to convey this in a short and sweet manner let me be very clear all biological elements are now linked to excessive stress. I am not saying that caused by I am saying they can be increased or your response to the treatment can be yourself because of it to you need to handle stress properly when it comes to biological or medical illnesses as far as psychiatric illness is concerned. I think the Jury is out on that the stress that is a model of how stress occurs pretty much states that in the window of tollens opportunity. If you have excessive stress and you are not able to adapt to add then you would actually and having talked about post matric stress disorders.

All of these are produced by stress but most importantly and most worryingly the commonest response to stress is actually substance used start with the beer because you are not sure that you are able to sleep at night and that happened because of the stress that you have the beer, most vodka, whisky soon enough you are holding it and it is causing a lot of problems in the morning and you can't live without the drink substance used because of and stress which was not any is a very common precipitated factor you need to be careful of this beyond that do remember that it is quite possible to have other signs of stress something that would normally call as Red flags.

So what are the red flags of stress which one you that may be things are not quite right as to start of these are the technical words the ones that your Bond irritability on minimum provocation if you are not able to sleep at night if there are situations in which you are becoming more and more intolerant of normal things if there are times when you are just passing through your entire day in a mundane manner of the subtler signs before that have to Warn you that a person breaking down crying for having an aggressive outburst is usually the last step in stress response before that you will get the signs that I am telling you about what are the signs of stress well here they are you are not able to finish your normal day to day activities you are forgetting what things made you smile and why you are telling to watch the clock before it finishes you are attending to try and avoid getting up from bed yourself care has worsened and you are starting to become more and more than it will be our red flags of stress and remember like anything these flags will be better seen by other people sweet quite possible that someone else might help you understand this better or someone else might point out to you.

Don t take it as offence remember someone meaning actually concerned about your well that's so if I had to tell you one thing it would be this always Peculiar to the place you work. for instance software professionals usually understand in distress when they tend to break the enter and the space bar in the keyboard people working at places which require them to do Road activities generally tend to stick to the rules before they start to realize that the stress they become more and more protocol apart from this how do we handle stress. Why because it required hand where it can happen anywhere when at any time and how with whatever you have available usual stress management techniques are there and I am not going to focus too much on it because they are all something that we are aware of things like maintaining a good work-life balance and sure that you deal with problems openly acknowledge your problems.

Learn how to say no maintain sleep hygiene and sure that you are not too anxious about it and you are saying no in a proper manner that should not get if I try and set goals and achieve them anticipate problems that is something that we all do if you are not doing it where you have to here's the thing remember the most important idiom in handling stress is don't bring your work home or your home to work maintain those balances. But really talking this because I just told you that it is quite possible that stress can be looked upon in different man so here I am going to tell you about what to do to not stress you are already doing what I am going to tell you is how to manage stress when things go horribly wrong.

It happens without warning it can happen on any random at any time and could happen because of you can't do anything about it but you have to get those that my dear friends when you require that intervention something that would help you adopt to the amount of stress which would be problematic for anything during this time normal techniques don't help and you have to have and contingency plan what do you do next 4 upontechniques are going to sound little whimsical 1st is acknowledging the fact that you are overwhelmed and are asking for help whenever you can,96 remember there is no it is usually new manifestation of old problem.

Which means someone else has gone through before so you can avail of the opportunity and help if you ask for it second this is very good when things go very very horribly wrong remember the wave example remember that you are emotions like waves always have a fixed time that they can respond to it doesn't matter if its or it's Tsunami it's good to go off within half an hour which means if you joy if it is fantastic happiness if it is escatcy or sadness or grief or just and invariable sense of feeling that the earth is gobble you up you have to learn how to handle the next half an hour when you get earth shattering situation which is very horribly wrong.

The weight and height existence only half an hour why is it important well because you have to remember that light waves reference tsunami or even a very-very flooded Marine Drive recedes within half an hour which means that even if the things which went fantastic which caused euphoria ecstasy happiness or extreme sadness grief for the gut wrenching feeling which you feel like the earth should gobble you up would only last for half an hour remember waves and emotions tend to coexist it is very very similar.

So if you take out the half your training your combination your mindset will set in and you will be able to handle things better it is as true for you as it is for the people from next time you have that horrible thing going wonderful happy or horrendously don't remember take out the next half an hour in the words of Winston Churchill if you going through hell keep on taking out the time it requires to adjust and manage to whatever problem should help you music to the next mobile price happiness is generally people that the person who coordinates with happiness should be entitled to the next Nobel Prize and the reason for this is simple any music which makes you smile will work as a stress buster.

Why am I saying this river and not saying a soft instrumental music I am saying music which makes you smile so you have the mobile phones just listen to them and ensure that you have a playlist of the songs which make you smile those random songs which you hear on the radio and you just can't be angry it will vary from person to person, 1980 so the song which makes me smile pehla nasha people born in 90s tell me this and that anything on this is always Kuch Kuch Hota Hai people born after 2010 however should be cautioned you cant tell people the song which makes you smile is zalima.

It doesn't work. It has to be group of 10 songs which make you smile and there is no restriction it can be soft instrumental. It can be patriotic songs for it could be rock and death metal it could be a random mix as - but you need to have those 10 songs which will make you smile and take the stress away just have that playlist that there are 3 exercises relaxation exercises that can be done if I had to fork and exercises that can be done while you are sitting.

I am not certain if you can't hear the surroundings right now but if I had to focus and 2 and exercise right now I would focus my mind not on my breathing but on the sound of the AC the among the AC or the sum of the sound of the drilling machine which you can hear outside their synchronous motor the sound they will help you focus your attention and once you have focused on that sound for 30 seconds you will realise that you are aware of your breathing and all you have to do is just know your breathing down for the next 8 minutes and we'll up suddenly you have manage to have stress management relaxation exercise done while sitting on your desk finally because I said 4 so I'll tell 4 but 5th piece of advice is equally important.

And its this remember that a diamond is just a piece of charcoal which handle stress very very well you are only going to find what you're made of if you go through the adverse circumstances and in the words of the great sir Albus Dumbledore maybe not sir jus albus Dumbledore help will always be provided at Hogwarts to those who ask for it to those who ask for it so if you feel the need to reach out or connect of you feel the need to make other people reach out of connect ensure that you talk with son if you want to talk with me you can reach me and doctor they were nursing home is where are usually set so do feel free to reach out any queries you can address then I will try my best to answer.

Thank you.

Lifestyle Changes to Manage Stress
Hello everybody. I am Dr Ashish Kumar mittaal. I am MD psychiatrist and I am practising in Gurgaon

Today we are here to know the management of stress and anxiety and its treatment.

The first question is what is stress?

Stress is that how our body and mind reacts to the life situations. So it may be Eustress or Distress.

Sometimes it helps us to move forward in our life. For example, during exams, we develop stress but due to that stress, our attention, concentration increases and we are able to finish things fast, we can learn fast and we can perform well. So this kind of positive stress is called Eustress.

But when the stress level increases, suppose, you have a capability of 10 and you have given work of 13 magnitudes, then your performance will go down and you will not be able to work or concentrate properly. So, this excessive stress is called Distress.

We can do something with our lifestyle to help reduce stress.

Switch off television and the internet at least one hour before sleep so that your mind is at rest before sleep.
Don t use excessive caffeine. Caffeine is there in tea, coffee, cold drinks and chocolates.
Do not take more than two cup of tea. If you are taking more cups of tea there will be more anxiety, lack of sleep which will further increase your anxiety.
In student we see such a thing. In exam they remain awake, take excessive caffeine in the form of tea and coffee develop excessive anxiety which reduces their concentration and disturb their sleep. So we need to watch it over.
We need to take some exercises like cardiac exercises in reducing stress and anxiety, some yoga technique we can follow.
Fix your meal timings and engage in some sports activities.
Many people think ayurvedic and homoeopathic treatment bring a cure. So I am not denying their role in managing these things but if you are not getting benefit then switch to allopathic treatment. There is no harm in that and it brings great relief within one or two months. We have many patients who have improved like anything.
The third barrier in the treatment is stigma. People think if we are going to the psychiatrist for treatment we are mad. Actually you are not. The person who develops stress and anxiety problems actually are smarter than other person and that is why they have developed anxiety problem, that is why they are worrying and anticipating more. Whenever you will go to the treatment you will see with good doctors huge number of persons are coming for treatment. So you can rely you are not alone. Others too are seeking treatment. But what happens is nobody tells each other that we are seeking treatment. Don t worry about stigma. Worry about your health and seek the treatment. Treatment is easily available. If you will search you will get good doctors nearby.

If you want to consult me you can consult me through lybrate.
