I will give you some information regarding the disorder. I am however unable to prescribe medications or give you specific advice regarding counseling or therapy in your situation as it would be considered confidential and private. In that case I recommend that you book an online appointment after you review my profile on this website. Several health and psychological conditions can cause or contribute to ED. These causes include: Partially- or fully-blocked blood vessels Nerve damage High cholesterol High blood pressure Heart disease Obesity Diabetes Low testosterone Metabolic syndrome Prostate cancer or enlarged prostate Damage to pelvic area Depression Lifestyle issues that can contribute to ED include: Prescription medications Illicit drugs Tobacco use Excessive alcohol consumption Sedentary lifestyle Stress, anxiety, and erectile dysfunction are closely connected. Stress and anxiety can cause ED. Plus, men facing increased stress or anxiety may also have increased blood pressure and cholesterol. Both of these conditions increase a man’s risk for ED. It’s important to understand that stress is the body’s response to life’s issues. Stress and anxiety can cause harm to your body. ED is just one of the many ways the damage manifests itself. Unfortunately, it’s a vicious cycle: ED can cause a man further stress and anxiety, which can cause additional ED issues. Each person stresses about different things. Financial concerns may keep you up at night, but relationship problems may worry a friend. All stress affects the body negatively. The following are different life stressors that may cause anxiety, which can lead to ED: Job problems, loss, or stress Relationship problems and conflicts Illness or loss of a loved one Fear of aging Changes in health Financial burdens Fears of experiencing ED may make you hesitant to engage in sexual activity, or they may discourage you from being intimate. This anxiety may eventually cause relationship problems with a loved one. You may find yourself becoming distant from your partner. You might feel less inclined to participate in sexual activity. You may also be hesitant to open up about your ED problems with your partner, which can cause additional stress and anxiety. Treatment can help end this cycle.

Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. It is not a heart problem, but a mind problem. Anxxiety and Panic occurs due to reduced serotonergic transmission in the mind. Since all organs have connections from the mind, when you have anxiety and panic there are changes in the BP/ and pulse rate. It is not a primary cardiac problem. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety and panic treated.

It is very common to experience fatigue when you are studying long hours. It depends on the amount of rest you are getting as well. Sleep deprivation as well as lack of sleep or insomnia may lead to concentration difficulties and problems with memory or ability to remember what you have read a well. Restlessness and irritability are also common symptoms of poor sleep. I believe you should take scheduled breaks and adequate amount of sleep (about 6-7 at the very least) to be able to study towards becoming successful. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues.

You could be having a lot of anger. If it is because of this relationship breakup then deal with this anger and your headaches and depression will just disappear in thin air. Relationships will come and go many times in ones life. You cannot take it too seriously unless you were thinking of marrying the guy. In fact, this is a common problem with a lot of girls, where you look at the first relationship that comes along as serious enough for matrimony. These are important associations to learn how the opposite sex functions and what happens to you around them, and to make the necessary corrections to become a suitable partner. You may have put in a lot into this relationship and it has not worked. Leave it but please learn something from the experience. Besides, you don't want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. Quickly get rid of all reminders of this boy, and do not visit the old haunts that you and this guy used to frequent. For some time avoid people, places, and situations that you two enjoyed. In the meantime, please talk extensively to a confidante or counselor about your feelings and thoughts to externalize it out of your system. Do not bad mouth the boy for any reason but go about your life as quickly and normally as possible. Don't get into another relationship until you have dealt with this loss completely. Keep these three values in mind: be responsible, be respectful and be functional, always.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The more you try to forget something from past, the more it disturbs you. Don't try to forget. Forgetting happens automatically. Engage yourself in daily physical and mental activities so that you don't remember. Take care.

Exposure therapy helps you. You have to keep saying to yourself that you will come out of this problem. If you decide, then it becomes easy for you. In this therapy, you should start going out to places which you fear directly and face the consequence. Or take someone with you and go the places . First day just go near that place, next go a bit forward, third day some more distance. In the same continue till you come out of that fear. You can and you will definitely overcome fear.
