Before 2 years back I am suffering from memory loss please give the reason and precaution to same problem.

Before 2 years back I am suffering from memory loss please give the reason and precaution to same problem.
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: 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. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

My question is why I can't concentrate on my study? Whenever I sat for study, my mind get distracted in internet, watching porn etc. So please tell me some solution of my big problem.

Your problem is psychological so treatment is also psychological counselling and management set your aims, goals, objectives and targets. Fix your priorities. Make firm determination and stick to your determination you have to make great efforts in the beginning to overcome your mental inertia there are 2 types of pleasures: 1. Immediate & short lasting 2. Remote but longer lasting animals go for immediate gratification humans go for remote gratification and sacrifice immediate gratification of pleasure consuming for remote carrier making gratification. You have to fix up your priorities and look into future leaving your immediate gratification of pleasures that you feel from internet, porn watching, phone talking and many more.

Dear , to have concentration in studies, you should be interested in your studies. To be interested, you need to have an aim in your life and should have the right attitude to achieve that aim. Please go for career related counseling or you may opt for online career counseling with me. Take care.

Parvon spas contains dextropropoxyphene, an opioid derivative. Given that you are taking 10-15 tablets/day, you have developed a dependence on it. You are suffering from the side effects of withdrawal on cessation. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction and they will help you with your problem.

Patterns of Drug Abuse

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Patterns of Drug Abuse

In order to determine whether a person is having a drug problem, there are several signs, which can be interpreted to know about the exact drug abuse state of a person. Drug abuse requires immediate attention before it becomes more problematic. There are several patterns and stages of drug use that have been listed below:

  1. Hard drug use: Heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine fall under the category of hard drugs and are the most dangerous drugs. There are severe effects on the health and behavior of a user of hard drugs. Some people use these kinds of drugs for recreational purposes, but some can get addicted just after using them once. Such people usually isolate themselves from society and possess a high-risk behavior.
  2. Frequent drug use: Frequency alone cannot determine whether a person is addicted to a certain drug. Some people may take drugs only once and twice a week, but still suffer from acute addiction. Frequency of drug use may indicate tolerance and a person may require more with each day. Frequent drug users usually keep on continuing the habit and it is hard for them to quit.
  3. Early drug use: Some people start taking drugs at an early age during adolescence, and they are likely to develop severe drug problems later in life. People who take drugs before the age of fifteen turn out to be addicts as they grow up. The earlier a person uses drugs, the earlier he becomes addicted. Early drug use is a common phenomenon in today's world.
  4. Solitary drug use: Using drugs and addictive substances while a person is alone may result in fatal addiction and various problems in life. Teenagers using alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes are prone to serious drug problems during adulthood. Solitary drug users are usually poor in studies and have a violent or abusive behavior.
  5. Escapist drug use: Many people use drugs for dealing with stress, several problems in life or for building self esteem. These are used as a substitute for escapism, which allows a person to escape from reality to a place where nothing bothers them and they can be at peace. Such people are likely to develop drug problems. Some people may experiment with drugs just for the sake of trying, but slowly they may like it and get addicted. This causes several problems in life, and a drug problem arises. Such drug problems may affect the health in many severe ways.

Drugs are used in several patterns. All people do not use drugs in the same pattern and frequency. The pattern of drug use by a person lets the doctor determine the level of drug abuse he is on, or if he is addicted.

Hello! I have a problem of thinking too much n then it leads to tensions n it occurs mainly in exams. Eg) I said something to someone then after some time I will regret that I have said something wrong. I even feel guilty about things which are useless like if I said something in mzaak (humour) then afterwards I will think that he must have taken it seriously n then I go on replying him on watsapp that I was kidding. It happens mostly in exams when I have a pressure to study and with these all problem I am not able to study coz these all things come in my mind while studying only in exams. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, all the given issues are due to lack of self control. You should learn self control. You are jest 17 and therefore due to the adolescent normal problems, it is natural to people like to have such impulses. Nothing to worry. Relaxation therapy should help you. Please contact a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Hi Librate user Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of our life, but when your emotions such as hopelessness and despair take hold and just won't go away you may have depression. You should try to be brave and face each and every situation in your life. Try to think positive. You should share your feeling and emotions with a close friend or relative. Try to spend some time for outdoor activities. There are many things you can do to lift and stabilize your mood. Be happy and try to live a healthy life.

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.

I am getting very angry on even small things happening around. I want to manage my anger and stress. Can someone please help me with these issues?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The way to manage anger is to express it all the time and every time. The only problem is that you must express it appropriately. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them is the issue. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. Now, it is also wise to find out why you get angry: is it too fast, is it too high, or is it without provocation? These will help you to determine whether it is worth getting angry at all, in some instances. These can be discussed with a counselor, in case you are still having problems.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS

Its normal to feel confused before a big decision like marriage. Your friend seems to be going through the same dilemma. She maybe having her doubts about her feelings for you or her ex. As an adult she just needs some assessment and counselling to help her clear her mind and reach a decision. As psychiatrist we are here to help her logically evaluate her problem and reach a conclusion that's best for her. Its important to understand the patient first. So if you want you can consult me.

Hi, From your question I am unable to understand the cause of your anxiety. Very often when we are too anxious or worry a lot then the emotional disturbances manifest as bodily symptoms such as hair loss, indigestion, gastric trouble, pains etc. Sometimes these bodily symptoms then become a cause for further worries and anxiety and this becomes a vicious cycle which feels hard to break. It would be a good idea to address the underlying causes of anxiety first. You could speak to friends or family or seek psychological counselling for the same. Other ways of improving our general sense of well being is through regular exercise such as walks, yoga, aerobics, swimming, cycling etc; pursuing some activity that you like such as dancing, listening to music, reading etc. All these help to release some chemicals such as serotonin and endorphins in our brain that make us feel good and less fatigued. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration is the result of interest, love and dedication. In your present stage, the priorities are shifting. Sometimes thd priority is career, sometime it is girlfriend, friendship, role confusion etc. In this scenario, concentration is difficult. Dedicate yourself and you can see the difference. Take care.
