Mental imbalance, Can you help me out to bring him in normal stage ?

Hello Doctor , Five yr back my brother was in a college who was ragged and on the same day he took overdose chloroquine. He was a very calm nature guy, very simple. After the incident he just showed opposite character, continous talk, he also does not know what he is taking about. He was diagnosed by a mental doctor. Now the problem is he became very calm n says he does not feel good, Like he is a dead man, just eating , breathing and sleeping. no interest in any thing. I took him to a medicine doctor and did total medical check up. Nothing came out. doctor said it s depression .I am very much worried, I still can t understand what his problem is. Can you please help me out to bring him in normal state of life..

You can go and visit Psychatrist. He will help in bringing him to what he was before the incident.

Hi There,

I completely empathize with your brother. I understand his pain because I too had to undergo the same treatment by my seniors. I was ragged -- beaten up and stripped -- and even today I can't forget all the torture that I went through. It left a huge mark on my psyche. Till about a couple of years ago I used to feel completely impotent and powerless. It was almost as I got raped. I wanted revenge. I would constantly have scenarios in my head when I would kick myself for not having fought back. I had just given in to the torture because it was easire for me at that time. I revisited those scenes many times, and every single time I went through the torture that I had gone through the first time.

As a result, without realizing it I had lost trust in people and I wasn't able to make friends or even rely on my own family members. Talking helps enormously and becasue unknowingly I had become suspicious of people I never talked about the guilt I felt about this incident. Thus I was in a corner -- mentally a broken man I had become suspicious of the very tools I needed to repair myself.

I was having huge anxiety attacks.

But luckily someone suggested I got to a therapist and that helped enormously. Today i am 90 percent healed. And that too without any medication. Whatever you do find a counserol/ a psychiatrist/a psychotherapist -- that is someone your brother can talk to. Do not try it yourself. They are professionals and they know how to build a person's trust and self esteem. For all you know even you brother might be able to suceed in life without any medications.

best of luck and take care

Thank you very much sir for your valuable suggestion. If anybody can give the reference of psychiatrists in orissa it will be good for interaction because my brother is not fluent in english or hindi. he knows oriya.

Thanku you again.

I'm 37 years of age, around 55kg ,5ft and have been treated for malaria and typhoid in recent time and in the past. I have been suffering from mild pains in my middle-left of abdomen and I now feel the pain in my left part of the chest and sex organ and this has made sex unsuitable as I do not ejaculate now when I have sex and also courses weak erection. Please what could be my health situation?

I have had recent blood samples and urine and stool cultures done. I had typhoid which took months to clear whilst I am in India. I have recently been passing what I know to be part of the superficial intestine (I had a dog who died from parvovirus and he passed the same thing just before his death and which I showed to his vet!) I recently had some diarheoa but not severe. Now, however, just 5 days after the results came back normal, I have a really severe sore throat, chest, back, neck and shoulders. My arms are sore to move and to touch, and covered in mosquito bites. I have severe pain in between my shoulder blades for which I am taking continuous pain killers. My fever is 102 and up to 104, for the past 2 days. I feel like I have severe flu and cannot do anything, even moving my fingers is causing pain!!! Can I have malaria even if my tests came back showing nothing abnormal? My chest hurts to cough, so does my back.

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Our family is all taking Malarone as we went to an island with the potential for malaria. We have all come down with various rashes. One on the back of the thigh (painful and two red stripes), the others behind the knees and in the armpits. This has never happened to us before. Could this be from the medication, sun, or something like ringworm or scabies?
