Dear Homeopathic Doctor,
I am male aged 45 years vegetarian. Height 175 cm, weight 78 kg doing Government job. Since childhood, I have been suffering from Depression along with problem of unknown fear. I don't know what type of fear this is. Since 1998 I started taking medicines. Doctors diagonised this as Anxiety with Depression problem. My present problem is Depression (unknown) and Anxiety (unknown nervousness). My present symptoms are facing nervousness and unable to express my facial feelings freely and my face freezes and unable to laugh freely. Also I cannot express any thing in front of others freely anything. This problem aggravates when i am at the centre of attraction. My heart beat increases, breathing and unable to express my facial feelings freely. Same occurs when I am facing this problem with argumentable situations. I have gone through all type of treatments like CBT, talkative therapy, hypno, RTMS, Yoga, pranayam etc. But there is no respite. Presently I am taking revotril 2 mg (some times 2 to 3 tablets) and for depression venlift od 150 mg. Anxiety problem. It seems to be social anxiety. I have been taking treatment since 1998 till date. I went to psychiatrists and psychotherapists. But in vein. Presently I am taking Rivotril 2 mg one tablet in a day. My present problem is I am unable to express my facial expressions freely. I get nervous and shows its symptoms on face. My jaws become freeze and unable to express my facial expressions freely. It becomes hurdle in my life. How to overcome this problem. Kindly advise best medicines to treat my problem. Kindly help me as job is Private Secretary. Kindly advise me the exact medicines so that I can overcome this problem please.

Now I got the solution in Allopathic solution. As I have little bit of higher thyroid dr. advised medicine for me along with venlift od 150 mg for depression. Now it is under control. Secondly, as I told you for the social phobia problem I have been taking Inderal 160 mg. Now 90% of my facial problems improved. Also generalised anxiety treated with rivotril 2 mg and panic attacks with ativan 2 mg.

Now I want to depend on Homeopathic medicines and gradually taper allopathic medicines. Dr. kindly help me which is the medicine for unknown depression, social anxiety, general anxiety and panic attacks. I saw from Google that several medicnes like Ambra Grisea, Silicea, Lycopodium, Argentinum Nitricum, Gelsemian, Aconite, Passionflower etc are useful.

Dear Doctor.

1) In the childhood I was a very shy person. Also during the early ages unknown depression developed. I was a person of lack of confidence, shy, courage. Also I was so aggressive, soft, moody person.

2) I have a good relationship with my father and mother. As far as my siblings are concerned, my elder brother and myself 10 years difference. Because he does not talk to me. My younger one and sister are very close. I always feel alone because no body talk to me. Also my siblings always use to tease me. This lands me in Inferiority complex.

3) Third point concerned there was no loss, accident or disease occurred.

4) As far as fourth point is concerned I feel guilty because my father is such a nice person. He provided all facilities to me. But the fact is I failed at every stage in my education I failed. In competitive exams I failed atleast in 100 exams.

5) Because of all these environmental situations, I developed in the later stage, Fear, phobia, inferiority, depression etc.

I think this information is suffice.

Hello! I have a big troubles. Everything started 10 years ago, when I was diagnosed with cancer, but lucky or unlucky, it was just a hernia. A year later, I started having problems like waking up in the middle of the night, cant breathe etc. Just an easy problems. After time, the things went wrong. I was affraid to go to a doctor, because I don't want to hear, that I am sick of Cancer. That is still the good part. Few Years later, I started having more serious problems. Currently, almost everyday at anytime I am in a different moods. Once I am happy, everything is fine, next minute I am depressed, and nothing is valuable to me. It happens after I lost one girlfriend though. But the problems are:
1. Cant focus on almost nothing
2. Brain Fatigue
3. Sleeping more then 8 hours and wake up tired.
4. Always thinking of something in the past, cant concentrate
on the present.
5. Social Phobia - recently I found , that I am having it
6. Hard time to organize my day. When I sleep less, like 4 hours
I am feeling more organized and easy going. But on the next day,
I need to sleep more , like 10 hours and when I wake up, I am confused, stressed, tired, and the day is just passing by me.
7. Sometimes, I am feeling, like I am out of my body and my life is just passing near myself.
8. Avoiding reading documents and doing work, where brain is involved more then normal. That 's a big problem, because the
quality of my life is getting worse and worse. Currently, I am 30 years old, finished my law school, but don't want to tell you how
hard I took my exams, because, when I read something, I do forget it very fast
9. It is hard for me to remember many things from my day. Everyday, I am not having many memories. For Example,
not sure what I ate, not sure what movie I watched, not sure with whom and when I have a meeting. Cant organize myself, and the biggest problem ever is, that when I have all those symphoms,
I start stearing in the mirrow and I see, that somehow, my eye
is changed. The way my eyes looks is a bit scary even for me. When I dont feel this pressure in my eye, they seems well, but often they skin where my eyelash is located is purple to red colour. this is only on one of my eye.
10. Tired during the day. Need a sleep often in the early afternoon for at least 30 mins.
11. Cant focus on many things, even if I want to.
I would like to ask you, please, give me a clue, because when I go to doctor, everyone says, that I am ok, and this is just a depression. It is not, I am sure. I read forums, about Bipoliar Disorder, Concentration Disorder, and almost every desiase, I have the sympthoms. I need to know, what I am seek of, so I can take the propper treatment and have at least more normal life.
Thank you very much , and hope to read from you!!!

I have had bad symptoms of indigestion reflux and constipation ever since I quit smoking weed. I also suffer from borderline personality disorder, psychosis and social phobia. Abilify seems to help a little bit with regulating my moods and psychosis but it makes my digestive problems worse. Will smoking weed help with my digestive problems, it seemed to help with mood regulation and weight loss in the past but I am worried about the marijuana aggrivating my psychosis.
