Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have mixed emotions. Sometimes I am overwhelmed with emotions. But sometimes I am entirely emotionless. I am unable to concentrate on my studies as I am extremely drained mentally. Nothing is making me feel better. If I feel better for some time, at the end of the day, I feel completely numb. I am sleeping a lot nowadays. I am unable to do my work. Please help me.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your problem, and I can understand your concern. It can be due to mood disorder and depression. You need to consult a psychiatrist soon as depression can present with a sleep problem, a decrease in energy, numbness, unable to concentrate on work, and low mood. In such situations, taking SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) can help you.
