From few months I think that I'm unable to remember whatever I try to memorize in any subjects like maths, physics, and chemistry, so I wanted to know that is it natural or any problem so please help me out.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

I am 15 years old and from now I am having memory loss. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You may experience this problem due to 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.

You are a medical student and you should have knowledge about your mind and behavior patterns. Negative thinking is always a problem. Your ambition is determined by your aptitude and attitude makes you do things ambitious. I think, you did not get the course you wanted to do, or you had some sort of disappointment in your life. Nobody is totally satisfied. You need to be satisfied with whatever you have and enjoy your life.

For some time I am not able sleep. It causes headache. What should I do? I think it is due to stress.
Dear lybrate user, sleep disturbances commonly happens due to overwhelming stress in life like anxiety before exams or certain life situations. To deal with that you need to look at your problem pragmatically and develop a plan of action. If your sleeplessness is related to stress you need to share the problem with a friend or family member whom you trust. Secondly don't take cocoa. Coffee etc. Take early dinner. No watching tv late night and hit the bed early. Pur off the light and one tablet of prep like melatonin 3 mg. May help you. You can have a refreshing bath before the sleep. Occasional sleep disorders are nothing a concerning one unless it affects your daytime functioning and you tend to fall asleep at off hours. Check for sleep apnoea syndrome if you have any (this happens in obese individuals mostly) and can consult a chest physician to conduct a recording your sleep pattern.

Hello, I'M studying in engineering 2nd year. Since from my childhood I am not people person. I don't talk to anyone much. I'm mostly alone all time living in my dreams. I am passionate about science till my SSC. Upto SSC I have a feeling that I'm the most talented and always felt like king. During intermediate I was in hostel .there I did not adjust first. I was hyper active that time I thought I was special and talked to everyone. While talking I talked nonsense too. Many thought I was stupid, as I was in top section many thought I was topper .then I met a person who was silent and decent we because frnds .I saw how people respected him and how I was treated. So I also wanted to be like him and because silent. Which failed my confidence. So I thought when I leave this campus and go to another CLG I will be like him .my studies too fell I felt alone, depressed. Some how I completed my intermediate with 96%. I went to hyd for EAMCET coaching. I was there in my aunt's house. Got a seat in Mohan babu CLG in Tirupati. I took cse, because I thought I can talk well and I have interest in coding. But when l in CLG I did not made any frnds. I was very egotic for 2 weeks then I realized I need frnds but they were habituated to CLG so I thought what if I create a situation that I have made frnds correctly, this is my stupidity I know some where in me telling this is wrong, I locked myself in my hostel room and started thinking that. I know there is much world which I should know days passed I didn't changed I not even talked to many if they will know I did not group so I acted Daily thinking of my past. Small things became big to me .I don't know what I am doing. Its like if I slept for 2 years and just woke up. Condition became worse I forgot myself I was not talking to anyone that they will know I did not group to things. Many boys became friends with girls some fell in love .(In school I was talking well with girls in fact I used to talk mostly with them. I thought playing outside was nonsense so I only watched TV. During school days ,and also my parents made me to study all Time. My dad didn't have a job my mom is a school teacher. My dad did not want smaller jobs to do so he did not do any .they were fighting all time because of that I full of ego .)now I don't know what to do all got frnds I am single.

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 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 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.

Night falls are physiological at males of your age if they occur once in a while, say once once in 15-20 days. This usually occurs due to overflow incontinence during sleep. Night falls do not cause any adverse effects on the body. However if you have frequent night falls and feel like having pe too then you should certainly contact a psychiatrist for treatment. Treatment includes a short course of medications and practicing some exercises that help in controlling night emissions and premature ejaculations.

My brother, he is 19 years old. Ever since he was 12/13 he has been angry and used to break things in the house. Over the years his anger worsened and he began to hit other family members when he got angry. he gets angry over the smallest things possible, and releases his anger by hitting or breaking something. After a while he becomes completely normal. Recently our mum had a traumatic accident where her finger got amputated. Despite being there with her when it happened, he seemed to have no feelings or empathy at all and didn’t even ask if she is okay, or help her with holding something. He seemed to show emotional blunting over it. His mood changes quickly, one minute his is happy and next minute he gets angry and that too over small things where he compares himself with people. If he goes to play cricket, he will get annoyed/irritated that he didn’t play cricket a lot and that he isn’t that good as someone else. One of the big issues is that he is unaware of the things going on around him. He will sleep with tv and light on, uses different towel every day, goes for shower for 2/3 hours. Seems like he is always having deep thoughts about something. Also he spends so much money uselessly and is overdrawn. Within 2/3 months he spent over £1000 when he does’t even need to spend that much at all.  Another thing is that he is easily influenced by people and tries to copy them. However, this is usually for bad habits such as thinking that his friend has had many girlfriends, yet he hasn’t, or thinking that spending too much money and going overdrawn is fine because other people do it as well. He does’t want to respect other members of the family and takes their care and advice for granted, even his own mums. When he goes out, he does’t say when he will come back, or if he does, he does’t come back on time, has no feelings that people at home will be worried. He lies to his family members easily without hesitating, about who he is going for night out with, or if he has bought something or where he is spending money on. You can never know whether he is lying or not as the way he says it sounds so convincing. Whilst at home, he does’t want to do anything productive, always eats and sits, even when he eats he does’t bother picking his own plate up, he can be that lazy. He wants to find a job, yet he does’t as he is lazy and wants to put no effort in at all. If he is in the lounge and is tired, he will sleep on the sofa but not on his bed as he is lazy. Whilst playing videogames and against people online, if he is losing, he can get ridiculously angry that he can break something, despite it being a game. Overall his behaviour is extremely aggressive and unpredictable. He can be happy and in a good mood, and all of sudden can get aggressive and break something. Deep thoughts and being easily influenced is also not helpful which is brainwashing his mind and leading him to the wrong path. Any help on how to improve his behaviour/treatment will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Kindly involve the legal team. Call police. File an FIR for creating family nuisance. Police will then produce her before a Duty Magistrate who will then give orders for the police to take her to a Government Psychiatric facility for observation, Diagnosis and if necessary standard acceptable treatment and revert back to court with progress or discharge. If you want your wife to be treated, this is the appropriate legal route. if you have any other issues, kindly resolve and address them at appropriate forums.

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
It's highly unlikely that you have memory loss. You're probably being forgetful and it's most likely to be due to a preoccupied mind or a disturbed emotional state. You're probably going through a stressful period marked by academic stressors, difficult inter personal relationships, difficult career choices etc. Yes, you can remedy your situation with counseling.

Dear, rising heart beat is not due to your blood pressure, but because of anxiety. Who advised you to take blood pressure medicine? Absurd. You are anxious and mostly depressed and therefore you loose your sleep. Please consult a psychiatrist.

Hi, you need to learn to manage your stress. You can discuss with me to learn stress management at work. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.

You should take him to a sexologist and that person will guide him with exercises and his mental makeup to help him. Being unmarried and indulging in sex may cause a lot of anxiety in him too.
