Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am quite disturbed for the past few months and I am not able to study. I am not getting enough sleep and suffering from mood swings. I want to cry and sit alone n my room. What to do?

Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query.

First of all, I would like to mention that these phases come in a student's life but they will pass. You cannot change the situation and what others think about you but the thing in your hand is how to cope with it. I know it is easier said than done but you have to move on. Certain things that can help:

1. Practice relaxation techniques like breath relaxation exercises daily for at least half an hour in the morning.

2. Share your feelings with family or close friends as sharing helps a lot. You can also maintain a stress diary and daily log down your thoughts uncensored, not to be read again.

3. Follow a routine and exercise regularly and take a balanced diet.

4. Besides consult a specialist doctor to get over it.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to ask if you have any further queries.

Thanks and regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
