Hi, it would not be appropriate to prescribe medicines with out knowing the exact cause behind your issues. First and foremost, I would advise you to consult a neuro physician at the earliest. He/ she shall be able to clinically examine you and diagnose the problem appropriately. In the meantime, however, you should keep up your diet and lifestyle with due room for regular exercise/ walking, relaxation and de-stressing. Focus on more of leafy greens, fresh fruits et al and stay hydrated. It is advisable to restrict intake of tea, coffee, sweets, salt, greasy, oily and fatty foods including fast foods. Alcohol and smoking, if any, be best avoided too.

Can Playing Video Games Cause Neurological Problems?

M. D. Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine-DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Can Playing Video Games Cause Neurological Problems?

Your mother has often yelled at you for playing video games for long hours, but obviously you haven’t paid heed to it. Such is the obsession with video games that they don’t let you rest unless you have championed all the levels in the virtual interface. Here is the source of all problems. Studies have revealed that video games have a direct relation to neuropsychiatric problems. As a result, many health experts across the world consider video game as a kind of health abuse.

People who play action-oriented video games are at higher risks. The more you indulge in these kinds of games, the more they are going to affect the hippocampus section of your brain. It is that part of the brain which is considered to be the centre of your nervous system, memory and emotion. Reduced hippocampus volume may make person vulnerable to multiple neuropsychiatric complications. Let us see some of the signs, which may indicate the onset of certain complications arising from an over indulgence in these games.

1. You spend hours on the computer or related gaming devices and devote lesser hours for your family and friends

2. You get agitated when someone stops you midway through the game

3. You become socially isolated and show signs of occasional mood swings

4. You are unable to keep a track of time once you start playing

5. You repeatedly neglect your studies, resulting in a dip in performance at school

Why does this happen?

All of the above signs indicate that sooner or later you might develop neurological problems. When you spend an excessive number of hours on playing and navigating through the games, the ‘hippocampus’ portion of your brain shows signs of decreased gray matter. As a result, the volume of the hippocampus shrinks, causing severe nerve related disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression, and overall general stress.

One of the biggest reasons behind this is a lack of self-control. Most of the video games will encourage you to steal cars, run away after a theft and kill your enemies. Moreover, if you succeed, you are rewarded. This naturally unleashes a blatant urge for the gratification of all these awkward desires in your real life too. Hence, once you are encountered with the reality, you tend to show violent behavior. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

It is very very less likely a brain cancer. But more detail about your headache is required. It appears most likely migraine headache. There is specific treatment for it, which can be taken under guidance of a neurologist so that the can be completely controlled. You also need some lifestyle modification.
