Brief Answer: Probably you are suffering from Peyronie's disease Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Probably you are suffering from Peyronie's disease but you didn't mentioned whether you have pain or not during erection.This disease is associated with painful erection.It is due to formation of fibrous band under the skin.It generally happens due to trauma,might got during intercourse.It may also happen without any cause .However,it also occurs after surgery or radiation therapy of prostate cancer. Rarely it also occurs in Dupuytren's contracture.In this condition contracture also occurs in palm. You need clinical examination.Fibrous band can be felt by hands. You should consult your surgeon for your problem.You may be only advised for regular observation and some conditions resolve by its own,whereas some require treatment in the form of steriod infection in fibrous band or verapamil injection.Other options are radiation therapy,vitamin E etc. Firstly wait and watch should be done in your case then steroid injection can be tried in band. Surgical removal of band is the last option. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX

Brief Answer: Curve in penis is due to partial erection of penis Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing back If it is not associated with pain then other causes should be excluded. Firstly patient should be given psychological therapy and if there is any stress or anxiety factor, it should be resolved. Patient is 55 years old so other causes of erectile dysfunction should also be ruled out. You need few investigations like random blood sugar,Penile Doppler can be done for confirmation. If your overweight, try to reduce it.If you take alcohol or smoker then you should quit it. You may need medicines for erectile dysfunction after proper evaluation. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX

Sir, I feel myself psycologically ill for my activities related to my daily routine, for i feel much of the time-very borring. Everything, T.V., Music(very rarely), my house, my colony, my studies etc. all seem to borr me. All these i feel from about last one and a half year.There are several other problems such as running of a music in my mind while studying i.e. when i am quite.

Oh! there's another serious problem(might not really be). Sir, last 6 years back when i was in class 6(Presently in class XII, 17years old), i got up an early morning and saw the buttocks of my father, and semen ejaculation happened unkowingly for the first time. I knew nothing about sex at that time, and so i got in practice of masturbation,without knowing anything about it just as if my body compelled me to do so.[I am a male]but attracted towards male. Actually not towards male rather any male's genitals or butocks and that too bare body doesn't attract me much but well dressed body do. And yes i have no doubt about my male identity.

One of the psychytarist has dignosed it as OCD.

I am 14 years old. I have anxiety most of the time and quite often I will wake up and have anxiety so bad I cant stop shaking, and using the restroom because it screws up my stomach. I have never had an attack were I could breath or nothing but its still affecting me every day. some times its unbearable. I also am very edgy all the time and get made fun of sometimes because alot of things make me jump and i am often seen as parioniod but at the time, I feel like me fear is very rational. I am so impatient that if I am forced to wait for even 5 seconds I will start getting jittery, I will bite my tounge untill it hurts and I will wring my arms. I also have a hard time remembering conversations my mother says I just had with her. I will sometimes ask her questions and she will claim that I just asked them but I dont remember.My grades are good and I have friends and stuff so I don't really understand why im so jittery and nervous all the time.

Hello I used to suffer from panic attacks in the past and was prescribed Fluoxitine. That sorted the problem out :It's now a couple of years later and I have since emigrated to another country and life is quite tricky and hard and I feel I am getting bogged down with stress daily again. I wonder if I could order myself some more Fluoxitine online and start taking it again ? Cheers
