Hi, You may be suffering from anxiety and depression. May be because i dont know your full symptoms and since doctors could not find anything its mainly psychological. You may need treatment from Psychiatrist also you need psychotherapy side by side for which you can consult me. You have irrational thought process which needs to be modified. You have fear of unknown of some disaster happening to you which can be tackled though counseling. Please practice deep breathing and exercise. You will be fine. Just seek and adhere to treatment

Sir I have mind related problem whenever I have going to study I can understand everything what is written in book but I can't remember.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, this may be true because of your age. 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. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along 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 are 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I am not able to concentrate when some one explains me some thing, or like I am not able to visualise the things more easily in terms of technically. May be for that I am forgetting the things immediately after the discussion. When I am trying to focus deeply or want to make interest on in the discussion my head started getting pain. But yea after doing that thing for several times I am ok in that. But my worry is how can I pickup the thing more first or at first time of discussion. Please help me in this. I am not able to compete with my colleagues.

Its nothing unusual it happens with every one, but only difference is that you are giving it more importance and so its causing more problem ,its like that if someone walks on rope without thinking anything else then he may walk on the rope but when that person will think what will happen if I will fall down and its consequences then surely that person will fall. Take healthy food increase fruits intake, egg, dairy products, you can follow my few suggestions it will help you 1.take 6-7 hours sleep everyday. 2.do some exercise like sit in the posture of yogi both hands on stomach then inhale and exhale air forcibly do it for 10 times it will not take more than 10 minutes. It will increase your concentration power. 3.Increase the intake of fruits ,green vegetables, and dairy products in partwise as this will not feel you sleepy. 4.don't take pressure before any conversation think it as a regular routine as much you will give importance to these things you will get nervous. If you need my help you can contact me. Good luck.

I'm a 19 years old medical student. . I met a guy in my college who was senior to me by 2 yrs. We became best friends. We enjoyed many moments together. He used to give me a lot of importance. We even became physically intimate for 4-5 times. It was okay for me as I thought he loves me , as I love him. Last week when I proposed him, he clearly rejected my proposal saying there is someone else in his life. From that day, he cut all the connection with me. Later he said he doesn't want to keep any connection with me. I'm in deep love with him .I didn't want to lose him ever. As I have already lost him, I can't accept this. I'm in severe mental depression. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't study .I'm feeling like crying all the time. I can't share the feeling with anyone. But my final exams are starting within 7 days. I don't know what to do. I can't concentrate in studies. Please help me out. you can prescribe any medicine if you think it may be helpful. Please help me out. I'll be highly obliged to you through out my life.

Like this same problem one girl medico student comes to me. She is final year in medicine. In study time it happens. Love and sex is common in medical colleges. Take it easy. He wants to you for the purpose of sex. He enjoyed sex later leaved. Then you also take this like that. Do not think this matter again. Exams are crucial. Better to concentrate on studies. My patient recovered very soon and now she concentrated on studies like that you also recover very soon. Next time be careful about boys. Do not give any chance of sex. Make a very good friendly relations and do not go to sex. Ok what is happened is over. Now exams better to concentrate. If possible please share your personal feelings with your close friends. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be enjoy every movement of life. Do not think and do not waste time. All the best. My best wishes.

It is a self invited distraction. You need to develop skills to control your urges and it can be done with practice. Slowly start with 1 hr of cutting away, maintain it for a week and increse it to 2 hrs. You can take help from your close family member to help you keep the mobile away from you.

Hi, firstly, I appreciate you for having taken the initiative to express your issues/ concerns and seek help. Your symptoms are indicative of you being depressed. I would advise you to meet up a psychologist/ psycho-therapist with no further delay. He/ she may advise diagnostics & prescribe mood elevating medications/ anti-depressants as appropriate. Also, should it require, he/ she may refer you to a endocrinologist/ or any other physician for consultation as apropos. Simultaneously, however, keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies. Do exercise/ walk regularly for at least 30 minutes. Yogasanas/ pranayams can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focused even during these tough times. At the same time, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can help you relax, rejuvenate, connect with self, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Do remain mentally strong, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that this condition is treatable and shall definitely resolve soon with appropriate medical intervention. Life is indeed beautiful, and you must try enjoying every moment of it irrespective. Hope this helps. Looking forward to you getting well soon. Take care and all the very best.

I want to know if I'm suffering from depression. I'm in a relationship. Everyone around me thinks my boyfriend loves me very much. I too sometimes feel the same. But not always. I expect him to care for me more, but he doesn't have time for me. I need him, but he is not always there for me. I'm very short tempered, and I think he thinks I'm a burden to him. I don't feel like eating. I don't socialize much. Can't share my feelings with anyone. I love him so much. I'm suffering like anything. I need some help.

Hi lybrate-user, It does not sound like you are suffering from depression. However, it is important that you realize the root cause of why you are feeling so low. You are looking at yourself from the eyes of your boyfriend, others. Your life is not just about being someone's girlfriend. There is a whole new person existing inside you apart from your relationship which you need to discover. I suggest you go for regular Counseling to share your life freely and learn to develop your confidence and strengths. Take care.

I am 22 year old b. Tech student from Kerala. I am suffering from severe headache when I concentrate on something. Why problem happens? Is there any issue with this?

First of all, get your eye sight checked. If that is okay, then see if you are anxious or nervous about something. Indulge in some physical exercise, so that your body gets enough oxygen and drink lots of water - dehydration may also cause constriction of nerves and blood vessels thereby causing the headache. Get adequate sleep. If still there is no relief consult a physician

You are not talking with girls. When you talk there is nothing. You feel inferior yourself. Anybody in this age like that. We talk so many girls about sexual problems directly. But we never get negative thoughts. You are not talking. You are imaging yourself wrongly. For that reason you are getting negative thoughts. When you talk with them. You feel yourself there is nothing. After talking everybody feels there is nothing. After that we dislike to talk with girls. Better to make friendly relationships with girls. Then you do not have negative thoughts. Nobody listen or feel or think yourself. They have their own work. In this world everybody is busy they do not have time to think about yourself. Everything is your poor imagination. When you talk friendly everything gone. After you feel bore. So better to make freindly relations with girls. Listening songs is very good. Be sociable and be freidly with others. Best of luck.

If your menstrual cycle is delayed, definitely do get a urine for pregnancy test done. If you do not want to become pregnant do use contraceptives. The safe period is usually the first week of your cycle Nd the last but if the cycle is irregular, it is not necessarily safe so should not be used as contraception.

I have been two days smoking 6 cigrate . After a two months and now I have a small chest and stomach pain. Is smoking a reason for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Could be but it is better for you to get yourself examined. Cessation of smoking is a must anyway and you should not wait for bad symptoms to appear before quitting. If you did that you may have developed a permanent condition and will have to resort to curative measures. If you quit now, you will be on a preventive mode and life will be a lot better.

I have lisping (tutlana) problem that is 't' comes out when I want to speak 'k' for example tow comes out when I want to speak cow.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered.
