I'm 25 years old I am affected with obsessive compulsion disorder since 10 to 15 years I even use sedative tablets prescribed by physician but no improvement please help me.

MD, MBBS

Obsessive compulsive disorder is a psychiatric illness and needs to be handled by a psychiatrist or psychologist. Sedatives are not for this problem hence your problem is still persisting. We could help you if you have ocd.

You seem to be anxious about your future prospects about work and security about having stable income. Well that is something to worry if you haven' t got a job already and not enough to sustain you through the" no work" period. Do you have savings that you can depend on, have you posted your cv and given interviews? this might take time and you might just have to hold out and do your best and hope for the best. Be realistic and optimistic rather than worrying. Your present company isn' t the only one in the market. There are more players. Try to be calm and think objectively and gather your resources and use them. Even if you don' t land anything, at least you have given it a shot and did your best. Regarding the boy, you need to know if you are interested in him as future partner or not? is he ready to hold out and wait for you while you are searching for a job. If you can, take him on board and tell him what' s going on in your life. Also you might have to decide between giving in to his demand/ request vs. What you see as important for you right now. You are 24. If you can wait to get married, then why not? be assertive about your dreams and desires but talk to him respectfully without blaming him or yourself.

You need to be checked by a qualified doctor..physical examination is a must. Normally simple muscle strain or joint sprains will respond to pain killers ...its not so in your case. The GP will decide if you need any test and specialist consultation. Three month is s long time to wait any more...don't wonder in the dark just taking pain killers.

How to improve our mental ability without any yoga and tell me also that how can I use time management at time of mental work like study, playing games, using any other activity?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

I have pressure on my mind due to tension of exams preparation then how I can relax my mind to do better work.

I have pressure on my mind due to tension of exams preparation then how I can relax my mind to do better work.
I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

It seems like you are being anxious and it's effecting your studies. According to you social media n smart phone are huge distractive elements and you are not being able to limit their use. It would be helpful to know whether this issue has started recently or has it been there for some time. Do consult a counsellor for further exploration as more information is required to really understand what's happening and how to help.

Difference between bipolar diseases and psycho disease any symptoms which differ these two.
Schizophrenia is less common than bipolar disorder and is usually first diagnosed in a person’s late teens.Bipolar disorder is a fairly common mental disorder compared with the other two disorders. Bipolar disorder is also well-understood and readily treated by a combination of medications and psychotherapy. It is characterized by alternating moods of mania and depression, both of which usually last weeks or even months in most people who have the disorder

Hi there ~ if you are on epilepsy medication for 30 years you may want to discontinue the medication after doctors opinion since you haven't had a breakthrough seizure for a long time. You need to do so by tapering the dose of the medication slowl Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction.

Dear, you are in love with your wife. Aren't you? if your answer is no, you should introspect. Wife is your companion. If you see only sex and pleasure, then the relationship has no meaning. I suggest you to change your attitude towards your wife. You can have feelings and crunches towards other woman. But you should love your wife. You should be passionate towards your wife. Please consult a psychologist for online relationship counseling or face to face counseling. Take care.

Nothing to worry , because of excessive feeling of stress and anxiety these symptoms will develop. Better to take homoeopathy medicines to reduce these symptoms permanently. Avoid sugary food and take vitamin d foods like fish, milk; omega 3 fatty acids like nuts along with medicines. You may consult a homeopath.

This shows that you are not doing your homework properly.Your mind is distracted and you are unable to concentrate on studies.Give atleast 2-3 hours to your daily studies for what ever is taught in the class.People who dont have the habit of daily study and think that they can coverup in the last are the laggards and always find it hard to tacle the situation.So start this habit from now itself and try to find pleasure in studying.You will be known in the future on the basis of your qualification,so work hard,

My mother is a 58 year aged house wife. She has an extreme sort of depression that we understand. Initially from 3-4 years she used to ate sleeping pills in high numbers (10 to 16) but survived each time. We sometimes thought that she wanted to express her feeling to get attention but this time it was very high level but some how we were able to save her although she was kept on ventilator also in hospital for 7 days of the total 21 days. What we understand is that she wants to be taken care of on highest priority in any case or time otherwise she has a negative mindset and when she is given extra importance in daily routine then she use to dominate other people in the home. I am totally stuck in between. What to do because in any of the movement there happens a problem. Please advice.

Hi, it would be good if you could take your mother to a psychologist/ counsellor for weekly sessions to address her concerns. Psychologists are trained to handle depression and related concerns through one to one therapy wherein they not only give the patient empathy, positive regard but also become agents for positive change. I am not able to understand from your question whether she is on any anti depressant treatment as well. If not you need to see a psychiatrist since her symptoms seem acute and she needs medication as well. Meanwhile please ensure that she is not left unattended and does not have access to sleeping pills or sharp instruments etc easily.
