I ma having problems with losing my temper and feeling uptight stressed etc. 8 months ago I stopped taking poraxitine as i had used it for over five years and wanted to start feeling things again- great joy and even reasonable sadness ( cry when watching a sad movie). My daughter says i'm uptight and in a bad mood all the time and asked me the other day if I liked my life. This made mw sad and a little alarmed. I had a very traumatic childhood and had intense therapy for 7 years. I would like to feel more calm without being nearly numb. Is there something I can take that is calming but not as emotion altering/numbing? I have tried herbal remedies, exercising more and yoga with no results/success. please help.

Hello, I m 16 years old, female, and I want to build some lean muscle mass and increase my fitness and health level. Would doing yoga 4-5 times a week with 1 hour practice each day be enough to stay healthy and fit? What type of food should I eat to boost muscle building? How often do I need to exercise and if yoga is not enough, what else can I do? I m practicing power yoga.

Dear Doctor,
My query is, perhaps, a simple one, but, to date, no doctor has been able to help me. I get anxious that I am going to fall and I am constantly up-tight when walking. I used to love country-walking and found it very relaxing, but not anymore. This has been gradually coming on for past 7-to-8 years and an osteopath whom I attended told me that the stress muscle in my neck was not relaxing and asked how was my walking in the house. It is ok in the house, but not on the public paths or even on the beach, although it is better on the beach because of the sand. I feel I should be able to relax more, but seem unable to do so, and every magazine I read advises one to walk. Is there anything at all you could suggest? Perhaps Yoga or Pilates, but I would have to travel by car for something like that as there are no classes in my locality. The swimming pool is within walking distance but even walking around the pool is very stressful for me, but the swimming is, indeed, very relaxing. Thank you,

sincerely,

Annemarie Malone

my child is 4 year old, after every one or two month, she is having caugh, caugh is severe during night. We consulted with the doctor, he has given montair LC, asthalin, zeental and distaclor. i presume montiar is a steorid and it should not be given to the child, antibiotics should be avoided, to be taken only in severe case. Please advise

doctor1 MD

Hi there,

Thanks for writting in.

Montair LC is not a steroid. It is used to treat allergies. Montair LC kid is quite safe and well tolerated by kids.
Asthalin might have been given for the wheezing.
Did you mean Zental?
Distaclor is an antibiotic, and might have been prescribed , as the doctor...

In the past three days I've noticed that when I move quickly, especially from sitting to standing or lying to sitting -- I do a lot of yoga -- I get sharp, dizzying pain in my head. Sometimes in the center, sometimes in the back or to one side, and occasionally in the temple. I've been out of town so haven't checked my blood pressure. I"m on Exforge and Crestor, 5'4" and 140 lbs. No ringing of ears, like when BP high. Generally low number has given me a problem, but lately overall BP around 120/80. Am I about to have a stroke or aneurism?
