Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.

Dear lybrate user...Lack of concentration and making careless mistakes, being restless and anxious about everything, being on the edge always shows that you have a lot of anxiety. If this anxiety is pervasive and is interfering with your social and functional domains of life it is more of an anxiety disorder. I need to know more about your symptom duration for suggesting a better management plan. Take care

It is not your nervous system, I think, but your lack of emotional maturity, the style of your perception and understanding the world/things/persons/situations etc. That shakes your nervous system. Of course, regular practice of yoga with pranayama will help you to a great extent to reduce the sympathetic nervous system arousal and thereby reduce your anxiety levels. If it is combined with a training to improve your emotional competencies, the results will be best. Try it with a psychologist or I will be able to do it through Lybrate's private question section.

I feel extremely anxious at times and get very angry and irritated. Have started gym two three days back. However due to gym unable to continue. Too much pressure on me for home tasks and how things are at home which I dislike and my partner unable to understand.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to the forum. There are a few things that can be done in this scenario. As you feel that your partner is unable to understand your problems, and it is important to share your feelings, it may be worthwhile to meet a counselor. If needed, a psychiatric evaluation can then be done to see if medicines are needed or not. At a later stage, it may be useful to get your partner also to therapy so that the counselor/ therapist can work on the relationship issues also. There is no short cut or simple solution to the situation. The above outlined method may appear little challenging but is the best way forward. It is advisable to exercise atleast 3-4 times per week. Do not do it for more than 20 minutes during the first one or two weeks. During the third week or so, you can increase the duration to 30-40 minutes five times a week. This will help a lot. Take care!

At your age, this is a strenuous schedule and unless you take adequate rest you are likely to cause irreparable damage as time goes by. Just because you are young it does not mean that you can abuse your life/body to this extent. Your body needs periodic rest and that is better than taking any supplements to counter the damage. In fact, it will not do you any good even with supplements because you may not feel the immediate impact but over the long haul, the body will feel the strain. Instead, I suggest that you squeeze in short naps of 20 minutes, especially at noon times, you will affect some restoration. Supplements​ are good but not for this type of abuse.

Living with Parkinson's Disease

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with Parkinson's. There is no cure for Parkinson's, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.


Signs:
The 4 most common signs of Parkinson's are:

  •   tremors or shaking when at rest
  •   muscle stiffness
  •   slowed movement or problems starting a movement
  •   problems with balance and movement

As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.

Care issues:
When you start to show signs of this disease, you should consult a neurologist for diagnosis and start medicines. Then you should consult a physiatrist or rehabilitation physician for making rehabilitation plan to prevent early onset of disability. Rehabilitation plan contains medicines, physical therapy or specific exercises, occupation-specific advises brace, etc.
The physical therapist can help you learn exercises that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your neurologist or physiatrist to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat Parkinson's disease. You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.


Things you can do to manage your signs:

When walking

  •   walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart.
  • Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
  •   use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
  •   if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
  •   place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
  • Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
  •   stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or lightheaded.

When using the bathroom
  install grab bars on the walls beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.

  •   use a shower chair inside the shower.
  •   install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
  •   shave with an electric razor.

When dressing

  •   wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
  •   wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.

When eating or drinking:

  •   use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
  •   use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
  • Work closely with your rehabilitation team to manage your signs of Parkinson's disease. Rehabilitation can significantly improve your quality of life.

Feeling homesick may have been only a trigger for the depression: you may have a predisposition for depression in actuality. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hey. Since last year I've been suffering from short memory. I've been taking tablets (omega3 and Himalaya mentat) but what is the reason for me having short memory? It is affecting me because I am a student and sometimes I do not have the money to continuously buy tablets! I don't mind buying them but can I at least know the reasons why this is happening?

Age related memory loss As everyone gets older it becomes more difficult to remember things, especially if one is getting over 60 years of age. This is because like other parts of the body, the brain also changes with age. How? Here’s how. Parts of the brain that handle cognitive functions, learning, memory, and planning shrink with age. Neurons (nerve cells) in the brain stop communicating efficiently. This is of course a gradual process. Arteries narrow with age and new blood vessels stop forming, so less blood reaches the brain thus slowing down its activity. Plaques may form that block communication between the neurons. Inflammation in the brain increases. Damage by free radicals increase as the brain ages. However, recent studies have indicated that the aging brain actually improves in certain areas such as vocabulary and other verbal forms. Another interesting finding is that the brain continues to develop new neurons even late in life. So essential communications can still be maintained through these neurons. Mild cognitive impairment Other common causes of memory loss include – Depression: Some people with depression may have slowed down thinking and mental abilities. Other symptoms could be – Low mood most of the time, irritability Insomnia Poor appetite Difficulty with affection Loss of interest in life, poor motivation, sadness, guilt Tiredness Medication: Certain medication too could cause memory loss or forgetfulness. This condition however improves once the medication is stopped. Anti-anxiety drugs – Alprazolam, diazepam, temazepam, chlordiazepoxide, etc. Cholesterol lowering drugs (Statins) – Atorvastatin, lovastatin, fluvastatin, etc. Antiseizure drugs – Acetazolamide, carbamazepine, ezogabine, gabapentin, etc. Antidepressants – Amitriptyline, clomipramine, doxepin, imipramine, etc. Painkillers – Fentanyl, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone, etc. Hypertension drugs – Beta blockers such as atenolol, carvedilol, metoprolol, propranolol, etc. Sleeping aids – Eszopiclone, zaleplon, etc. Dopamine agonists to treat Parkinson’s disease, certain pituitary tumors, and sometimes restless legs syndrome. Antihistamines – Brompheniramine, carbinoxamine, chlorpheniramine, clemastine, etc. Incontinence drugs – Oxybutynin (Oxytrol), darifenacin, etc. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions can directly affect the way brain functions. Some of these conditions are – Stress and anxiety Underactive thyroid, in which the thyroid gland does not produce sufficient hormones Subarachnoid haemorrhage, that is, bleeding in the brain Vitamin B1 or thiamine deficiency Transient global amnesia in which there is a sudden episode of memory loss that cannot be recalled afterwards Brain tumour Alcohol misuse Dementia and the various types of dementia Dementia is perhaps the most severe of the memory problems that affects your daily life. It usually occurs in people who are over 65 years of age. Dementia is actually not a disease but a syndrome that consists of loss of functions involving memory, thinking speed and reasoning. Symptoms of dementia include – Forgetting recent events Difficulty remembering names and places Asking questions repetitively Becoming confused in unfamiliar environments Difficulty planning and organizing Difficulty in verbal skills Changes in personality and mood Depression Dementia can be caused by all the above mentioned causes plus 60 different illness, but the primary and most common cause is the Alzheimer’s disease which account for 50 to 60 percent of dementia cases. I hope this helps.

Hi lybrate-user! Definitely not acidity or anxiety it is due to your activity that you felt the movement, it is just a feeling. Acidity doesn't come in ribs, felt only in the stomach. No need to worry unless otherwise you experience more than 2 or 4 times. If not just ignore. First do not fear everything is action only body mechanism. Take care. Ignore and be relaxed. With regards, Psy. MSV.
