If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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.

You are being treated for Generalized anxiety disorder and this medication is the lowest dose. You should never discontinue medication without doctor's advice. The symptoms you describe are typical side effects of this medicine. Hello Doctor, my psychiatric doctor prescribed me Fortinerv, Depran -5, klonaz md 0.25 1st and 3rd is for the morning and the 2nd one is for night as I told him to reduce my medication and I want to stop having medication. By giving this prescription am I able to get rid of this medication slowly? I think that before you ask your doctor to reduce your medication, make sure you are complying with all the requirements as prescribed. Now if you are serious to want to reduce the medication, you must also work with a counselor and develop some skills and techniques to help you cope with the daily challenges of this condition. Then, as you improve in behavior and coping skills, the doctor will reduce the medication but in such a manner that it will help tease the brain to produce the same naturally. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Hi. You should take tab. Ipill 72 with in 72 hours. It make you safe. And pregnancy also depends on your period timing. Most chance of pregnancy are in days before 5 days of menses and after 5 days of pregnancy. If this happened other days of this days then no chances of pregnancy. Avoid late night party or more intake alcohol.

I feel my teacher as my mother, and when someone goes close to her, suddenly I get so much anger and I behave so rudely, and many times I thought to harm myself by cutting my hands or taking any other serious injury. Is this any mental disorder? What I have to do.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. This is a mental disorder called obsession or possessiveness. Don't worry there is treatment. You have to adjust your thought pattern. You can continue to count your teacher as your mother. But don't get aggressive on someone speaking to her. You need Rational Emotive Therapy. Take care.

Hi, feeling very depressions feeling like wants to be alone and faded with life any suggestion please.

Hi, feeling very depressions feeling like wants to be alone and faded with life any suggestion please.
Hello lybrate-user. Following are some suggestions:- Make yourself busy. Start working instead of worrying. If you're just sitting idle, you will just keep thinking of something or the other, continuously running your mind, which will make you suffer. The same time can be used for doing valuable things. Sports and hobbies Start taking part in outdoor sports and other activities like swimming, etc. Also if you have some hobbies go ahead and follow them. Become socially active Talk with people. Try to make new friends. Engage in conversation with new people. Start attending social gatherings. This will not only increase your social circle, but also you will gain confidence and start enjoying the company of others. Volunteer/ Help other Work for some organization that helps the poor and the needy. Try to help others. By doing this you will help yourself as you will gain satisfaction and self contentment by helping others. Also, you may bring a smile to someone's face which is priceless :) Meditation (most important) And also, if you want, You could try doing meditation. It is really nice thing to meditate as it gives joy, bliss and happiness from within. If you want you could try SAHAJA YOGA meditation. It is the easiest one, you won't even need to do much efforts and it's totally FREE. It will help you alot (physically, mentally, emotionally and in all other aspects of your life). It starts with one getting his/her "SELF REALIZATION" and then the state of "THOUGHTLESS AWARENESS" follows. If you want more details just Google it. Wish you all the best!

Parkinsons disease is a neuro degenerative disease. Unfortunately there is no permanent treatment for this condition. For initial symptom relief doctors give anticholinergics, antihistaminics, but latter dopamine agonists or dopamine precursures (levodopa) is needed. I your case, it appears to be an early onset and already advanced case of parkinsonism which is associates with high grade dementia, rigidity, tremour, inability to walk. In this condition levodopa+carbidopa/benserazide-. 4-. 8g/day or ropinirole or pramiprexole might be needed. Along with that, regular physiotherapy will help a bit. Proper nurshing care may be needed. Thank you. Take care.

It is curable. But though you already taking bp medicines I would suggest you take up ayurvedic treatment along with that so that you dependency reduced on allopathy medicines. Your erectile dysfunction problem will get cured altogether in your case you need to take little longer but effectively you may recover.

Hi lybrate-user, a few questions for you, which will help in better insight into your concern. Does it affect your health, work performance or motivation right now, according to you? as you know, smoking has health consequences and in that respect, it may harm your lungs especially if you are already prone to asthma or respiratory issues for example. You will have to see that it does not hamper your daily life or functioning and when it does, or if it does as of now, you should considering quitting. Consult a psychologist near you if you have issues quitting on your own. All the best.

When I make love with my girlfriend, I worry about losing my erection, and sometimes this worry seems to cause it to happen for real. This is very frustrating, because I don't want to worry about it, and when the thought enters my head, I get upset that it entered my head, and I get worried about the whole thing all over again. Then once I realize I'm doing this, I try to focus on the lovemaking, telling myself, "Just enjoy it, it feels good, and you're close to her, but of course in the back of my mind (and maybe the front too) I'm worried about losing my erection. And then it happens. This has been happening for years now, actually. It doesn't happen every time at all, but I worry about it enough that it has ended up sticking around. I don't want it to happen between my girlfriend and I, because she is very special to me. I love her very much, and I believe she is the person I want to marry (and I have never gone off "half-cocked" on that decision, so to speak . She and I talked about this this weekend, and I noticed that I was avoiding telling her that this has happened between me and other people I've been with as well, and so I just told her, and she felt much better -- she smiled and was very accepting, because she realized that it really isn't because of her, or that I'm not comfortable with her or something. We even joked around about it while we made love after that, because it really isn't a big deal; it's just nerves, and I know it will go away. But what I want to know is, do you have any tips? Please let me know.

Hello try to modify your schedule. Start your day with morning walk and exercise. This will help you to feel fresh. Take good healthy diet. Form a study time table. You can take help of study organizers. You can write number of chapters to be learnin one column and then make adjacent column naming them learn, then revised 1, then revised 2. Whenever you finished learning 1 chapter put a tick. When you are finished with revision 1 put another tick. This will help you to get an idea about your preparation and will increase your confidence. Goal setting can also be another technique, you can set goals like need to complete 1chapter within 1 hour. Tell yourself that you will not leave your preparation between. After achievement of your goal reinforce yourself by engaging into likeable activity. All the best. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.

Hi, I am very sad about my psychological problem that I get suddenly unconscious anywhere. Please advise.
Sudden loss of consciousness can be a symptom of underlying unresolved and untreated anxiety. You need counselling and treatment with medicines if required. Also you might need investigations to rule out other possible causes of such symptoms like epilepsy, anemia, brain lesions etc. Consult a psychiatrist for management. Consult me online for any other queries and assistance.
