There is a strong component of stress and anxiety in acid reflux. Its a vicious circle, you get stressed and anxious because of it and then it creates acid. Work on it, take a help if you need. You can also undergo a hypnotherapy session in your city. It is mighty effective.

Autism & Schizophrenia - What Is The Difference?

Autism & Schizophrenia - What Is The Difference?

Both schizophrenia and autism are considered to be neurological disorders resulting from atypical neural development, occurring due to a variety of causes. Both these disorders have a genetic predisposition that may be due to environmental factors. However, there are a few basic differences between the two disease conditions.

Autism is also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by a spectrum of abnormal behaviour. They include persistent deficits in social communication and interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities.

Signs of autism in babies

  1. By 6 months - No social smiles or other warm, joyful expressions; limited to no eye contact
  2. By 9 months - No sharing of vocal sounds
  3. By 12 months - No babbling or use of gestures to communicate; not responding to one’s name when called
  4. By 16 months - No use of words
  5. By 24 months - No meaningful or two-word phrases

Signs of autism at any age

  1. Avoids eye contact and wants to be alone
  2. Finds it difficult to understand other people’s feelings
  3. Speaks very less or has delayed language development
  4. Echolalia - Repeats words or phrases
  5. Cannot accept change in routine or surroundings
  6. Performs repetitive behaviours like flapping or rocking
  7. Has restricted interests and hobbies
  8. Reacts unusually intense to sounds, smells, tastes, lights, colours etc.

Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a neuropsychiatric disorder that begins during late adolescence and early adulthood. It is characterized by delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech and behavioural changes that cause social and occupational dysfunctions.

Signs of Schizophrenia

  1. The symptoms of schizophrenia are usually observed between ages 16 and 30, such as e.g. delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders, movement disorders etc.
  2. Delusions are false beliefs of the patient that may take many forms like delusions of persecution or grandeur. You may feel somebody is controlling you or may think you have extraordinary powers and abilities.
  3. Hallucinations are when the patient hears voices more than seeing, feeling, tasting or smelling random things, which are not actually there.
  4. Thought disorders are when the person jumps from one subject to another for no logical reason.
  5. Some negative symptoms i.e. these are symptoms which are normally present in a healthy individual, but are absent in a schizophrenic patient. E.g. absence of facial expressions, lack of motivation etc.
  6. Cognitive symptoms affect the individual’s thought process. They can be positive or negative based on their expression. E.g. poor ‘executive functioning’ which deals with the ability to understand information and make decisions using them, finding it difficult to focus etc.
  7. Although both Autsim spectrum disorder and schizophrenia are interlinked in their causes and neurological background, the symptoms for each disorder are different.

Hi Sana In a normal scenario an egg usually forms on the 14th day of the menstrual cycle and then it is released by the ovary through a process known as ovulation. Then it is picked up by the fallopian tube and in the fallopian tube it is fertilized by the sperm resulting into conception and then further events takes place resulting in pregnancy. For this both the egg and the sperm needs to be healthy enough so that the whole process can go on in a normal and healthy way. When the scan report says that the egg is not healthy then it means it might not survive for long and the process of fertilization will not happen. In simple words it means it will be difficult for you to concieve. Your being worried is quite natural in current situation. I assume you must have gone for extensive investigations of yourself and your partner. Considering reports of your partner normal, this seems to be very much the cause of your problem:- eggs are forming but they are not healthy. I advise you to go for HOLISTIC homoeopathic treatment for your problem and within a course of 6-8 months this problem will not be there anymore and you will be able to concieve. It will need a detailed case history and analysis of investigations. You can contact through lybrate for the same.

My depression has been cured with lithium oratate supplement that I ordered from amazon. I do not feel any sideeffect. I heard lithium carbonate has sideeffects and it should be prescribed whereas lithium oratate has no such side effect. I want to ask whether lithium oratate is good to take in long run?

Dear Sahil, i do not have any experience of prescribing lithium oratate. You have to take it in the long run only, for few specific diagnostic disorders. In those disorders, the benefit outweighs the risk of side effect. Just because it is safer than lithium carbonate should not be the reason for taking it in long run.

Is there a permanent cure for depression and other mental issues, what medicine is without side effects.
Unfortunately ant-depressants have lots of side-effects. You should go to the roots of depression. If possible, visit a counseling psychologist near your place. You must change philosophy of your life to change the thought pattern loosely called depression introspect, what are your expectations. Expectation bring frustrations. Chasing happiness gives unhappiness!
