This has increased after my marraige
Is this some kind of a normal thing?
May I know your age and gender?
But, officially I am able to maintain the cool typo

I was suffocated a lot by my husband

I understand your problem.
Let me explain to you now.
Anger and irritability may be associated with
I am quite obese
2. A manifestation of a psychological condition
3. Due to ones personality,
in which there could be other associated symptom.
The first step in handling this problem is to rule out thyroid problems.
Getting your thyroid function test will help us rule out this condition.
If the test is normal
will definetely have this test done
Hope it is clear to you.

Do you have any other query?
which is more critical than me.. as I undersatnd
please can you help me in that?
Can you explain the problem?
He is very normal, tries to be calm but very talkative and funny
but if tensed, in the sense, when he tells me something and I dont obey or have my thoughts to say, he becomes violent
he starts by talking about the issues, for atleast 1 hr
and at one point i loose my control and start to shout
then he starts to fight with me, beats me too
he then says he has been suspecting me, very dominating always thinks I only take care of others and not him
he starts to drink , drink to the core, doesnt eat, doesnt sleep
Oh my god!! so scary to tell it too
I am unsure, if his nature in like that
because, some times he has told people few things wrong about me, which has never happened between us, i am unsure if he wants to exacerate the problem or he sees those things virtually happening
Calls all my relatives , friends talks too ill ablout me, hurts me a lot
I wanted to leave him and get away! yesterday I watched a movie where it says its kind of a disoder, is it something like that
May I know his age?
30 , Male
He has been using Otrivin, for his nose problem continuosly for around 4 years now, smokes a lot, drinks as well
Since when is he consuming alcohol?
How much and how frequently?
right from 12th std
or college.. not sure
When he drinks, people say he talks 4 to 5 pegs and doesnt have any side dish with it
he is a vegetarian and takes one small cucumber piece for the whole drink,
when he drinks he acts too wild atleast till the next day after noon
How frequently does he drink?
when I was with him, around 2 aweek
now its almost daily
Let me brief you.
yes please doc
The symptoms you report is probably not related to any medical condition.
there can be some amount of depression
which may be the cause of these symptoms.
As he has been drinking a lot these days,
A detailed evaluation - physical as well as psychological evaluation can get us to the root of the problem
and treat it accordingly.
the treatment might include
Please let me know, if this is a problem where he may need my support or just acting cranky
some counseling sessions, medical drugs, alcohol de addiction programme and so on.
He definitely needs support
he suspects me a lot, for small things, even with his brother.. things which are very impossible
I am worried about my kids life as well in this
And as I explained, these symptoms could be related to depression
or probably his excessive alcohol intake.
But, from our marraige it was there, now even worse
Can you suggest me some good place
Depression is a condition which can affect at any age.
I am at Chennai
How should this depression has come
It may have been there since childhood or at a later date too.
It occurs due to contribution of multiple factors.
Is it sometime as serious as Bipolar disorder?
There is a very narrow line between depression and bipolar illness.
Based on your current description,
the symptom is probably depression alone and not bipolar.
