Stress can foil memory and concentration. The distraction it leads to will not allow focus on a particular topic or subject. So locate the stressor and deal with it soon to recover good memory. It will be easier to work with a counselor on the emotions that are causing the stress, which I would imagine has a lot to do with fear. Fear of the exams can also cause this panic which wipes out your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. In the meantime do some of the following: 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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. 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.

Yes, it is a drug which affects you daily life. There are many side effects of this drug. And smoking it twice a day means that now you are dependent on it. You should consult a specialist for this as soon as possible and try to overcome this habit of yours.

Simply under stand that asking questions makes you confident and helps you to become a better person, if you ask without much thinking or hesitation then automatically your fear to ask, will go.

Sir when I am working on computer I miss the alphabet for example at 2, 4 min I forget that which alphabet is called a. Same things happen with numbers. My expression are change immediately. And I also can't sleep long time. I wake up 4 5 time on night bt I m feeling so tired. I am thinking so much without any connection and limitations. Is this symptoms for depression. What I do ?which kind of doctor I contact.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It could be depression if several other symptoms connect. Go to a counselor first and let that person determine if you need to meet with a psychiatrist for medication. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it could be treated early with the prognosis really good. Please do take your parents with you to meet with the counselor and carry all the information about you, from prenatal days till date, including up to your grandparents. If there was any telling event either in your life or that of your family history, then there is a genetic concern that has to be factored in too. The missing numbers and alphabets may not be serious all by itself, but could be of much concern if it is linked to any disturbed condition in you. You can nip it in the bud, if acted upon early.

General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I turned 18 this september and I have been going through maladaptive daydreaming since 2 years. I am thereby not able to concentrate on my studies and I just keep on imagining. I have researched for so many times on internet and concerned various doctors. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
A huge part of the problem will be the fact that you are in your late adolescence. As a result I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. This might be the least of your problems though. Normally most disturbances that were not resolved earlier will come up for the last time during this age seeking a resolution. So what you are looking at in effect is that this may be a sign of something that needs attention and you and your parents are well advised to meet with a counselor and describe what is going on with you. The combination of unresolved childhood issues with the hormonal disturbances will have a serious impact. Your parents may be able to throw light about any developmental issues that may be contributing to this situation. Then a treatment course could be safely devised and the necessary follow up could be planned. If done soon the possibilities are really good. So don’t waste time and seek help immediately. The late adolescence is a period of two years and so it is not surprising that you have had these problems for this long. The day dreaming is not a good sign because you are disconnecting from the reality and it may be an avoidance mechanism to face the reality which may have something bothering you that you don’t want to look at. If you know of anything true in this sense please meet with a counselor soon. You must face your problem and if the issues seem too difficult then some more intense intervention may be needed. The prognosis is good if you work on this early. If this gets worse I do not know if you will be willing to even accept you have a problem.

Respected Sir Being anxious and having a heart rate of 168/min is definitely not ok. But since you mentioned that it is your maximum heart rate, it could be nothing as Holter generally measures maximum, minimum and average heart rates in 24 hrs. So if the doctor felt that your average heart rate is fine and there are no variations, you should be fine. However you could try yoga, relaxation exercises or just regular exercises to reduce your anxiety. Also make sure you sleep well and eat a balanced diet. If you still feel you are anxious, kindly consult with a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and to get treatment recommendations. Thank you and Take care to remain Stress free.

Hi sir, My age is 24. Today if I listen any Songs they got stuck in my mind and loosing my concentration when I am in any important work. They got disturbs me alot. So I visited a psychiatrist and the doctor given some medicine. Names are FLUNIL 20 MG AND CLONIL 25 MG. I think those are antidepressants. Is it worth to try those medicines. Is having any side-effects by using those medicines. The doctor said to try those medicines for one month and get back to me. So please help me with that.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, you may be suffering from something we call as obsessions, which r repetitive, irrational and intrusive thoughts which create distress. Flunil 20 mg is a fine drug, if you have no response in 2 weeks, increase it to 40 mg. U can try one medication at a time and stop clonil for time being. Any allopathic drug can have side effects but if they r effective with minimal side effects, they r worth a try at least.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, take homoeopathic anacardium 200, 5 drops, at early morning before brushing your teeth. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture ashwagandha q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This will help to increase your memory power during exam.

Dear Manish, Occasional erectile dysfunction is common around marriage time. You have had good erection in the mornings means, you are physically and hormonal;y normal. Alcohol increases the desire to have sex and makes the performance poor. So, why don't you try stopping alcohol fully? If you have any difficulty as withdrawal symptoms, doctors can help you. Smoking can cause impotency itself. Moreover the smell stays on your cloths for a long time. Suppose your wife does not like cigarette's smell,....... So, why don't you stop smoking. Quitting both may be difficult - but if you make effort, doctors and medicines will help you. You will get not only sexual health, even overall health benefits also.

It might be due to early onset of dementia or you might have been in depression secondary to your cardiac problems. Analyze yourself properly that you are suffering with the symptoms of depression or it is purely forgetting. A few tips to reduce memory deterioration in case of dementia is that a research says that taking almonds on a regular basis will keep your brain healthy that in turn stops fading memory. Taking a spoon of turmeric powder in a glass of water or in any form of food will help your memory stops fading.
