You need to consult psychiatrist for proper medicinal management along with counseling.

My father has a sinusitis problem which was diagnosed in 1992.During that time he went through all kinds of medication and went to several doctors who give him different medicines before the problem was diagnosed. One of the doctors to whom he went( he was a close family doctor but of very short temper) gave him 15 days medicine but it did not work and so when he went to him again he started yelling at my father and said that he will be given shock treatments as he was very very ill tempered. He said it very rudely and since then whenever my father gets any head pain due to sinusitis he gets very depressed and thinks of that same thing that doctor said which was absurd which he knows well but it makes him depressed every time and he gets really worried about that shock thing. He also went to a psychiatrist for this depression treatment but he is not able to overcome it. What should be done? How can he stop thinking about what happened in the past? Please I need help!

Can stress of any kind cause high frequency hearing loss? A few months ago, I suddenly couldn't hear the fire alarm and I failed the age hearing test on brain games (couldn't hear any of the address!). I'm near loud noises at work but so is everyone else but their hearing was never effected. I was once so stressed that I lost my vocals for three hours! This is why I think the loss is due to stress. There isn't any genetics involved, any ototoxic medication that is listed I take seldomly (and taken BELOW required dosage), again, loud noise is present but not severe enough for high pitch deafness. So could it be stress? Ever since my first born was born, I've been having intrusive thoughts (gore-ish to the max but I digress) . Please help

I have not been wanting to sleep for a few days even though I do feel sleepy. So I stay awake till 4-5 am until and unless I am so sleepy that I can't stay awake and my eyes would close. Also, I've lost interest in everything. Even those things which used to give me pleasure.

Well I wasn' Well first of all , I didn't had much time so it was just one appointment with her. She is a nice listener at least and for those 40 minutes she listened me and interrupted when necessary. Well I wasn't completely satisfied with what she said but I won't blame her for that because first of all I wasn't too the point and I almost narrated my last six to seven years of story in half an hour and worst I already told her it would be first and last meeting , I did not gave her much time. But still whatever she said about me most of the part was correct such as what person I am which is what I actually wanted to know. She actually showed me a mirror of what was actually wrong with me and how am I supposed to deal with it. And hell yeah I actually bored her..... I am sorry for that! But still I have got a lot more to say because I believe I didn't explained things clearly before. more..

She was extremely rude to begin with.
Without seeing my history she commented on my behaviour saying "tumhara swabhav kharab hai"
She continued chastising me for taking depression medicine during pregnancy.
She also went on to add that I will not be able to reduce medication and become alright with the kind of attitude I have.
We visited her at Sahara Hospital. Heights of unprofessional behaviour was when her "assistant" (who was continuously present in the room) handed us a paper with her private clinic address asking us to visit her there.
The worst part was that all the this was done in less than 2-3 minutes.

I will never recommend. I visited her to get rid of my depression, but the experience with her was horrible. Honestly the mistake was from my end, i should have taken the reviews seriously. Firstly, th I will never recommend. I visited her to get rid of my depression, but the experience with her was horrible. Honestly the mistake was from my end, i should have taken the reviews seriously. Firstly, the consulting fee listed here is different when you will visit for the check up. Secondly, she told me that i am suffering from mental disorder since childhood and i am not normal (like special kids), being a psychiatrist she know how to play with words, she almost convinced my mum, that i am an abnormal kid. Moreover, she added that i cry to gain sympathy. After talking to her i felt more horrible. Lastly, I will suggest people to save your time, money and another mental torcher. more..
