When I was small I use to faint on one ocassion of the other. At the age of 19, I developed some unpleasantness in my body. I was told that it is not stomch problem rather schizophrenia. I took medicine and did a lot of exercise I became normal. Subsequently, at the age 31 the same problem replapsed. This lasted for two years & medicine and exercise were of no help. Subsequently, I improved through some homepathic medicine. At the age of 50, the same problem began and I fainted on several ocassions. After thinking it to be again a' psychiatric problem, I was told that it is' seizure. I took medicine for 4 years but all through I was not the same self. When the doctor reduced medicine the seizure once again recurred. At age of 56 years I am both on psychiatric medicine (nexito 10) and neurological medicine (3 eptoin & 1-2 lacoset). What is the problem with me? is it going to last for the remaining years of my life? does schizophernia at an earlier stage becomes epilepsy in the later stage of life? as per horroscope moon means mind and 6th house means desease. My simple strength moon is the 6th house. Moon also means mother. My sister was born 11 months after my birth and hence separated. When I was borne there was heavy rain and there was moon in the sky. On fool moon day i. E. Lunar the lunatics in an assylum are told to see the full moon.

Physiotherapist,
Are you sure with your diagnosis. Kindly consult psychologist first. I think you fell down be cause of only epilepsy. But I dont feel it will be schizophernia.

First of all, I am sorry for you loss. As other professionals said, grief after the loss of someone close to you is common. It heals with time. But here in your case. The duration is being quite long. Sometime we need to vent it out. Whatever is there deep inside our heart. The thing that is unconsiously stopping us to come out of the sadness. I know it takes alot to be in that phase. I advice you to please consult a mental health professional. Along with him/her. You can work with your problem. Its just a phase of life. I know you will surely get out of it.

Dear , Marfan syndrome is an inherited disorder that affects connective tissue ? the fibers that support and anchor your organs and other structures in your body. Please understand, this has nothing to do with your mental issues. Your phobia and breathlessness could be due anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.

After 12th pass I am not anymore interested in studies what r the reasons behind this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Whenever I start studying I feel sleepy and so I can not do my study well. What to do to get concentrated on studies? It is obvious that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. It may also be that you have studied these topics already right through the year and find it very boring to do it all over again. You may be just sleep deprived! Perhaps you are not exercising enough everyday! Look into all of these matters and deal with it in an appropriate fashion. In fact every time you feel sleepy, just get up and do some jumping jacks and it will wake you up. If you are feeling sleepy, do some written work. In the worst case scenario, you may have some tea or coffee and that will perk you up. Never have too much carbohydrate meals before studying, it will make you drowsy. In terms of concentration here are a few guidelines: 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, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Addiction of cigratte. How I can do something for my uncle. How he can get rid of addiction of cigratte?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your uncle's will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your uncle is ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support he need, he can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless he feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that he has a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for his actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. He should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, your uncle need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with his psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Yes the medicines that pt is taking esp for the prob of schizophrenia are having quite a lot side effects and all of the above you have mentioned may come in varying intensity in the patient as per the age, life style, mental state etc. In such condition, if you take homeopathic support along side, it can help you to recover along with minimizing the side effects of above medicines.

I am suffering from depression.
Can you suggest me some treatment?
Please help me. I am very worried. Help me.
Depression is a state of mind, your doctor needs to understand your problems and factors responsible for depression. Depression is like boiling milk in a vessel. When milk starts boiling you either need to stop the flame or remove the vessel rather than taking milk out of the vessel to prevent spiling. similarly your doctor needs to talk to you and understand what is bothering you and that will also help in chalking out the right treatment. Above all stop caring about things which are bothering you, when you can not control go with the flow keep on doing your work, nothing is permanent, this situation will also pass the only thing remain will be the result of your efforts. so just motivate yourself and see a qualified doctor for mental physical and spiritual health. Homoeopathy is good at it. Wish you a speedy recovery..

My wife is suffering from OCD since last 7 years. I showed to her to doctors which say that she has to take medicines for long period. She showed good improvement but medicines were adversely affecting her health as she was gaining weight too fast. Ultimately from last 15 days we stopped her medicines. Now she again started behaving like OCD patient, checking doors many time. What should I do? again visit my doctor? kindly advice

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

OCD in some patients is a curable illness and in some patients is a chronic illness with long term medical treatment. Some patients function very well with medicines and talk treatment. So visit the psychiatrist and convey your concerns. There are good medicines without much weight gain or side effects.

Sir how to have a confidence to write the exam with is vary difficult and how to get the power to study the one sub again and again.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

How can I avoid a cigrate. I started smoking since 8 month ago pls tell me I want to avoid smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Hii,
Mujhe sex karne ka bahut man hota hai or apni mami ke liye jyada attract  hu so please  help me.
Sexual attraction for opposite sex at your age is due to hormonal changes and is understandable. However you should very well know the difference between acceptable and non-acceptable sexual feelings. If you feel you have uncontrollable feelings that keep ruminating in your head against your will even after trying a lot to get rid of them, the. I suggest you to start some treatment in form of counseling and behavior therapy. Medicines may be started if needed.

Dear lybrate user, I really appreciate your efforts to get your loved one out of addiction. He needs to undergo de-addiction treatment. Take him to a de-addiction center. The doctor their will first de-toxify his body, then will give him some medication to manage withdrawal symptoms. At the same time he will need some counselling. The counselling process will help him to find out his triggers for smoking and help him to deal with those stressors. The counselling process will also help him to manage his anger and stress. It is very nice of you to be concerned about him. But please understand that he needs to take responsibility for his own actions and his life. Do not take the entire responsibility for his de-addiction or behavioural problems on your shoulders. Make him responsible. Let him do things for himself. Take care.
