Causes and Diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Causes and Diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger's syndrome has been found to affect people at a tender age. The augmented impacts of this syndrome are felt as you grow up. It is a neurological disorder falling under the scope of Autistic Spectrum Disorders. However, it is a milder form of autism and has similarly unidentifiable causes. A person afflicted with Asperger's syndrome will not exhibit stark signs of the disorder. These persons are usually smart and brilliant but face issues in communicating or interacting socially.  

Factors that may result in this disorder

  • Genetic factors could also afflict you with such a syndrome. Thus, it is important to carry your family history while consulting a doctor.
  • Certain changes in a person's brain could create trouble. 
  • Your body could be susceptible to external toxins: many times bacteria and viruses from a polluted environment can lead you to such a serious neurological condition.

Ways to diagnose Asperger's syndrome

  1. A doctor would concentrate on your child's speech: Language development can hint at many underlying health issues. Your child might fail to process speech around him or her which impairs its own speech.
  2. Exchanges in a social setup could be indicative of something: Children or adults could find social 
  3. gatherings challenging. They feel awkward to interact with friends, relatives and colleagues. It takes a lot of effort on their part to exchange basic pleasantries. A doctor will be able to deduce from such symptoms.
  4. Facial expressions while conversing could help diagnosis: A person's facial expressions tell a lot about how they formulate or feel about things. Their words, at the same time, could be contrary. Counselors lay stress on frequent sittings to closely note the gestures made by a patient. 
  5. Comprehension and coordination capabilities: Your child or loved one might find it difficult to handle motor regulated appliances. Comprehending instructions could also be a test. People suffering from Asperger's syndrome face problems in understanding simple things. 
  6. Responding to change will also be taken into consideration: Patients trying to cope with this syndrome are usually not open to change. They take a very long time to adapt to a given way of life; a sudden change will thwart their idea of normalcy.

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?
Drinking alcohol is not prohibited but may interact with medications you are taking and may increase their sedation and side effects on liver. Discontinuation of antidepressants has to be meticulously done according to the case history, remission of symptoms achieved etc under the close supervision of a psychiatrist only.

I don't exactly remember when I get caught by this problem. I'm feeling like I'm losing my memory very soon and can't memorize a instance or event or name or number immediately I see. I feel nervous and lack of confidence all the time due to my bodily reflexes. It shivers while I stand in front of a crowd or in front of my manager and when I take a glass full of water. I always live with anxiety and with trembling hands and head. My memory fades while I'm getting into something. I can't sustain myself in cold whether as well as in little hot I sweat like a pig. My eyesight is getting weaker year by year. I have gastric disorders like indigestion and gastritis, sexual disorder like quick ejaculation. I feel like I'm always disturbed. Please help me.

You are suffering from anxiety disorder. Because of this one. You suffered very much. Better to consult psychiatrist for medical help. Along with medicine you need psychological counselling. Sometimes internal frustration and excessive stress may cause to develop this type of symptoms. It is better to control yourself. Do not imagine negative aspects. Do not underestimate yourself. Feel always comfortable manner. When we are under excessive stress we have a feeling of memory loss. We may develop fear also. I think you alone thinking excessively these aspects. Better to share when you feel bad. Breathing exercises will help to you very much. Practice yoga and meditation. Feel always relaxed. Your negative thinking is your enemy. Better to control it. Be feel always in a relaxed manner. I am very good capable person. I can solve any type of problems think like that do not depress small things. If you think negative aspects it may lead to further aspects. Feel always confident. It is better to come from yourself without any one help. If not possible your self it is better to take the help of professions. Be sociable and be friendly always. It is good for your health. Ok best of luck.

5 Ways to Beat Loneliness

1. First, don’t isolate yourself – When you’re feeling lonely it is hard to go out and be with others who seem to be OK, and don’t really notice how lonely you feel. But putting up a wall and withdrawing from your friends will only intensify that sense of loneliness, and will further undermine your self-esteem.

2. Second, keep yourself busy – Do things that you normally enjoy with others. For example, listening to a band or maybe going to watch a game … or you could always try something that’s new, but interests you! That would allow you to connect in a non-threatening way … as it takes the focus off talking, and off you.

3. Third, be kind to yourself - It’s likely that you regularly beat yourself up, criticise yourself and are unrealistic in the kinds of expectations that you have for yourself. So what, if it goes wrong? You can always try again – just learn what you can from the experience. And notice your successes and the times when it goes well. It’s likely that this happens a lot more than you think!

4. Fourth, recognise that we ALL battle loneliness at times - You’re not some kind of freak – it’s actually quite normal. It something we’ve all known and understand.

5. Fifth, talk to someone you like and trust – It can really help to talk about your feelings with a family member, a friend or counsellor. It relieves some of the painful sense of isolation – and help to get your life back in perspective again.

My only son (9 Yr) is now a student of Class IV in a School at semi-urban area with his mother along with one of my relatives family (4 members) separately. I am working in other place away from them and attending week end / holidays. My wife is looking after every thing. She is efficient, accommodative, and is teaching child. At home have no TV connection. Child is (i) very arrogant and is not intending to study; (ii) eating too much, health is good; (iii) talkative other than study matter; (iv) mobile, computer may be handled quickly and can practice any play without any target; (v) has ability to grasp any songs/music; (vi) during study period he can grow different reasons to away from the class. Because of him my family peace is going away from home. My wife is becoming unrest for him. School is not far away, five minutes by walk.

Seems like he is a highly intelligent child but not in the academic sense and is showing signs of emotional disturbances. He has probably entered puberty at an early age. The other thing is whether he has had any developmental problems earlier that are beginning to surface looking for a resolution. These could also have an impact on these observations of yours. Kindly meet with the school counselor, and if they do not have one, then perhaps a child counselor will suffice. A change of house around the age of 9 has also been reported to disturb some kids. Is he allowed to play organized games either at school or at home? Exercise and games will exhaust the excess energy that may help him calm down for school pursuits. I feel that a tutor may be useful to help him settle with his studies. Keep in touch with his teachers to know what their feedback is and work with them as to how to help him. No TV may be a problem for him. Have the TV but discipline him around it. Your absence, especially at his age, is probably affecting some of his rebelliousness. Sometimes too much parental strictness only invites rebelliousness at this age. Do not allow excess eating: not only is that a health hazard but it is also making him compensate by oral gratification and the obesity may become difficult for him to lead an active life. Now the brief time that you come over on the weekends cannot be all spent in reprimanding him either, but besides that, do spend quality time with him as much as you can. Your wife cannot be both father and mother, at the same time.

Irritation may cause for stress and anxiety. You are very anxious. Head aches may come because of excessive thinking. So think too much about nobody will harm to you. In this days everyone is busy in their work. Who will think about you. You yourself develop inferiority complex and insecurity feelings that is your mistake. You better to come this stage. Be friendly with others your express lovely talking everybody love and the help to you also. So be sociable and be happy. Ok best of luck.

Plantar fascitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia or arch tendon of the foot. It is an overuse injury causing heel pain which may radiate forward into the foot. Plantar fasciitis can also be known as a heel spur although they are not strictly the same. A heel spur is a bony growth that occurs at the attachment of the plantar fascia to the heel bone (calcaneus). A heel spur can occur (with repetitive pulling of the plantar fascia) on a foot with no symptoms at all and a painful heel can have no heel spur present. Treatment: shoes: wear shoes with heels made from soft rubber instead of leather and replace them regularly. Footwear selection is also an important criteria when treating heel pain. The right shoes can play a major role in relieving discomfort. Use homeopathic remidy rhustox 200 three doses for three days.

Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, take homoeopathic anacardium 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. Also take homoeopathic mother tincture ashwagandha q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. The aforesaid medicines are indicated for your loss of memory. The color of our skin is due the formation of a color pigment called melanin. The synthesis of melanin is dependant on the body temperature. However, if the melanin synthesis is decreased or stopped due to any abnormal reason then the skin of that area becomes hypo-pigmented & looks colorless. Follow the medications as directed:- 1) take 4 tablets of homoeopathic arsenicum sulph flavum 6x tablets along with a cup of lukewarm water, thrice daily. 2) apply homoeopathic mother tincture ammi visnaga q on the colorless part of your skin & keep that area sunlight for 30 minutes daily. Continue the aforesaid medication for at least 1 month to observe visible results. However, before starting any medication kindly check whether you are having any loss of sensation on that colorless part of skin. If you experience slight loss of sensation on that colorless part of skin then you should contact your local dermatologist immediately.

My daughter is 8 years. She became very slow in response as age is growing. She forget basic things also. Like washing hands after toilet. Flush after loo. She goes for brush but stand lost for long. We need to remind her everything. Is it laziness or some issue? She was very sharp kid till almost 5 years of age. Then slowly she became like this. We don't show our frustration but it is very frustrating that things like drinking water, washing hands need reminder. She doesn't use her brain at all in any activity or study. But she can play memory or brain video games very well. Can you please suggest what is the reason for this behaviour? And what we should do to correct it?

Listen, watch your kid's behaviour thoroughly. Most of the time I have seen in my practice, that this type of kid suffering from depression (childhood depression). Have you noticed that your child now become irritated easily? mood swings issue have you noticed? please notice these carefully. Another thing might happen, that is childhood ocd or any form of anxiety. Find out quality time to spend with your child. Try to find out her emotional state at that point of time. You can consult with a psychologist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your anger and aggression could be attributable to the frustration you are experiencing. You need to change your life style. Why don't you search for a new day time job? even though it pays you lesser salary, you will feel peaceful. I suggest online counselling sessions for you. I am sure your problems can be solved. Take care.
