Certainly: Some light natural methods would be daily meditation to get yourself centered. Learning to prioritize issues will help to put things in perspective for you. Essential oils of lavender and citrus inhaled from the hand helps to calm and focus you. Medications are available for OCD and of course therapeutic counseling to teach coping skills and explore issues www.Medac4u.Com.

Cellular level: Irritability refers to enhanced ability of the heart cells to generate an electrical impulse (known as action potential). This happens when a substance referred to as cyclic amp increases in the heart cell causing increased entry of calcium into the cell. With increased calcium, the heart cell both fire impulses rapidly as well as contract vigorously. I will go over some of the causes next.

Ventricular irritab: Assuming you are referring to pvc's or premature ventricular contractions - besides myocardial ischemia the most common cause i see is caffeine ingestion - followed by stimulant ingestion ie pseudofed. Cocaine and other illicit drugs as well as add drugs can cause irritability as well. Elimination of these will generally solve the problem if not its time to see a cardiologist.

Yes: Irritability can be a symptom of a number of medical conditions. It is a common symptom of depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Sleep deprivation caused by any condition can make a person irritable. Withdrawing from nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, or other drugs can cause the symptom. Chronic pain or stress can do it. So can an overactive thyroid or a hormone imbalance. See your doc.

Sleep: First you need a good history and physical to determine underlying reasons for irritability. It may be a diet issue. You may be stressed, sleep deprived, or have neurotransmitter imbalance. If you never have nay down time and are very intense that can contribute. Diet changes, sleep and homeopathic remedies. Consider seeing an acupuncturist/chinese medicine practitioner.
