Hi. I'm facing some strange issue with my consciousness, thoughts, etc. In daily routine. Listed as below: 1) forget minor things, and need efforts to remember. 2) don't feel things around me consciously until I give efforts at looking them, 3) have forgot the past things consciously, need to think very consciously to remember, due to which loss of remembering the past small things which have learnt. 4) things happened just before 2 months, seems once upon a time and opposite sometimes. Its like feeling of time and period is not in order. 5) not able to reason, and use my intellectual in work due to my internal mental situation felt inside. 6) think deeply for a small thing and moving on to endless other thoughts and imagination. 7) no change in mood most often, no happiness, no sadness, no worries, no enthusiasm, carelessness for a particular thing, lost interest, laziness etc. I have been addicted to alcohol since used to have two 750 ml bottle every weekend. However it's now cut down to 2 bottles a month since 1.5 months. I have habit of smoking cigarettes, and also 2-4 puffs of weed every night dat is the days I don't consume alcohol. I have been in a lonely mode since few years, like no socialising with people, and now I feel odd being social due to my behavior, and I become self conscious, while doing the same. My current diet is simple home made food, green tea with lemon juice and honey in morning, 2-3 small cups of coffee or tea per day. I'm not facing any issues with my appetite or digestion, or any other physical issues. I want to know the reason and solution to current mental situation, as I'm not liking the feeling of what I'm feeling now inside. I want an advice how to work this out.

Dear lybrate-user, You have written a elaborate description of your problem. Your current problem most likely due to alcohol & cannabis withdrawal or depression. You need to undergo some blood investigation like thyroid profile, serum VIt B12, Serum Vit D3 levels. You need to start some medicine. I am sure that you will get 100 % improvement. All d best.

Sir! My wife has problem of abdominal pain and white discharge for four years. Is it curable? Is this sign of cervical cancer? please help me kindly. i have lost hope due to her problem.

I hope you got your wife properly examined. There can be many causes of white discharge. Even cervix cancer can be detected by proper examination and a pap smear test. Your wife will get cured if properly taken care of and you should not loose hope. Take her to a good gynecologist for examination who will properly examine her and ask for necessary investigations to rule out the problem.

If there is no problem you can avoid taking any medication. For abdominal pain you can use some analgesic and can use heat pad. Write more details =- marital status and if married no of children with age, menstrual details.

Hi. Thanks for the query. You are malnourished and your diet needs to be taken care of. Just cutting out foods or going on a crash diet will not help. You need to have a well balanced healthy nutritious diet to maintain weight as well as health. Firstly it is important to understand that weight /fat loss involves sensible eating. You have to eat the right foods at the right time. Eat small but frequent meals. Take a glass of lime water 10 minutes before meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

Thank you for the query I would like to ask whether you have any problems like diabetes or do you take alcohol. Fatty liver commonly arises due to faulty lifestyle. Diabetes and alcohol are both reasons for developing fatty liver. Sedentary lifestyle and intake of food rich in fat content can also cause it. Udiliv and golbi are the same medications, though medications are not very helpful to reduce this condition. Your diet needs to be modified. Avoid refined carbohydrates and saturated fat intake. Avoid intake of carbonated beverages. Intake of dietary fibres is needed. Try to develop an exercise plan daily and if you are overweight, weight loss must be attempted. You can go for some blood tests like liver function test and lipid profile. Any abnormalities in these tests must be dealt as needed. Please visit your physician for further advice.
