I am always losing memory. Every time I lose my memory. When I am standing in front of anything to do something at that time I forget what to do? And also when I speak anything I can not speak what I want to speak and other words come. if I want to speak the word 'eat' I speak drink. I have no other health problems. Every thing is ok. What I do doctor?

this is a sign of anxiety. You need to practice breathing exercises, listen to relaxing music, exercise regularly or practice yoga. Medicines under expert supervision may be needed if problems persist. Just to be sure get a hemogram, serum TSH and vitamin B12 levels done.

I take too much of tension because of which my head starts aching. During my boards (12th) exams I got in habit of taking pills. I used to consume 6-7 tablets of disprin daily but now I have controlled it. Sometimes I feel like committing suicide. I am unable to express my feelings. I just do not know what to do? Please help me.

Dear lybrate user, you need to talk to someone who you trust. Or please talk to a counsellor. About the situation at home and about hiding your depression from your parents, I understand that you have your own valid reasons for doing this. But in the interest of you and all at home, it will be very helpful if you can talk to your parents about your own emotional state and other family problems. Taking too many pills and self medication is quite harmful. It will damage your lever. You feel like committing suicide because you think there is no way out from your problems. But there are always many options available, we need to understand these options. You are very young hence at your age probably you are not aware of multiple choices that can be made in any given situation. If you are not able to express your feelings to anyone, please consult a counsellor, who will help you in expressing your feelings and finding various options to come out of your difficult situations. Take care.

Hi I will suggest you to not sleep in the same room. I will prescribe you some flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops.

I am suffering from acute back pain and pain in the thigh and left hip for the last two months even after taking all medicine and physiotherapy treatment and homeopathic treatment. I slipped while coming out from a lift in the month of May after I returned after visiting my ailing brother who has been diagnosed with rapidly progressive dementia and his condition is deteriorating day by day. My parents are not alive and he is the only one who can come in high and low times. I become so much depressed after seeing him in such a state. I keep on crying and praying for my brother recovery but Dr. said it is incurable. I don't know what to do. My family and kids are also suffering due to my condition but I am unable to keep control on my emotions. Please guide me what to do. Thanks a lot for your help.

Some facts in life are to be accepted as they are. Some chronic ailments lie dementia have a defined course. Your attached emotions with your brother are understandable, but your feelings and emotions seem to be dominated by sadness and negativism towards self and surroundings. This definitely suggests a depressive disorder which is probably assisted in precipitation by a hypothyroid state and post hysterectomy status. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with your latest thyroid reports and consider starting some helpful medications to alleviate depression. You may consult me online fro any further queries and treatment.

Hello, I have serious anxiety issues, and I'm not able to cope up with it now. It mostly occurs during late night or after dinner. I try to sleep so that it will reduce in time but mostly it doesn't happen .I feel suffocated, heavy breathing, feels like my heart skipped a beat, my heart races! Sometimes even my head spins and eyes get strained. I even went for ecg but nothing came wrong everything was fine. Though I'm anemic. My blood count is 7.6 And I'm actually very weak in health, if I climb stairs I get exhausted in 1 min. I have low bp issues as well. I have actually noticed that when I get low bp I get anxiety more. And I'm only getting 5 hrs sleep. I always get up around 3 am. I'm really worried Please help me with my low bp issue, anxiety, sleeping problem and how should I increase my blood count (even though I am having dexorange but I don't feel it's helping, this anemic problem I had since childhood, when I first checked my blood count it was 14 in 2010, yearly it has reduced to 7.6)

Your hemoglobin (7.6 g%) is very low. Low hemoglobin can cause exhaustion, dizziness, breathlessness on minor exertion, increased heart beats and sweating. In persons who are already anxious, these symptoms get amplified. You need to take oral Iron capsules as well as multivitamins everyday. You should also see a doctor immediately as they may be able to prescribe injections for iron. This will help to relieve your symptoms, although it will take time. Other than that, focus on your nutrition. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. You can consult me for further management of anxiety.

I am 20 years male. I am too attached to my family (specifically my mother). Last week, my father decided to go on a family tour. I had to stay back home since I have my exams going on. This was the first time I was living alone at home which made me depressed and I felt lonely. How to overcome this depression? How to get mentally strong to bear such situations? I need to prepare myself for my future coming situations.

This was a temporary phase, so do not do so much of self-analysis, esp for the first time. There are all kinds of feelings in entire life span, do not hold to one and dissect it they will come& go. Attachment may have a chained pschodynamics. Enjoy your relation with them without bieng fixated, because everything around is changing. You cannot assume anything to remain static including the relationships. Be less emotionally dependent and you will stay happier that way.

Dear lybrate-user, it is not abnormal to have sexual feelings at this age, self masturbation has no side effects, it is good that you wants stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

I am addicted to marijuana from last 3 years I am just 17 years old. Now I want to quit what will I do?

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Marijuana is cannabis which has a high abuse potential. It is a" gateway drug" which means use of marijuana can be a step to use of other types of drugs as well. It stimulates the reward area of brain and gives feeling of pleasure and the person always tries to seek the same feeling. The problem is one develops tolerance to marijuana and tries to increase the dose progressively. Try to cultivate positive addiction habits like exercise, developing a constructive hobby. For completely giving up the drug please seek guidance of deaddiction specialist/psychiatrist.

Difficulty in getting sexually aroused by touch can have varied reasons from medical to psychological. If you do not have any active medical problems then you probably face some psychological issues like stress and anxiety. Inability to enjoy sexual experience is also hindered by preoccupation with too much of stress, fear, expectations and misconceptions about sexual activity. All you need a thorough evaluation and complete sexual counselling consult a psychiatrist and sexologist for the same.

My wife was went to her parents home before 4 months bcoz my job loss. She come before 15 days but her behavior has changed. She has concerns with my current job salary. I found some call recordings which she was talking with her mother. Her mother guiding her not to cooperate. She using abuse language towards me and my family. She is giving threat and tell my wife to look out with me after when we give birth to a baby. She told not to roam with me and not to believe on me. So I am mentally stressed.

I think that she is concerned about the future of her daughter, especially if you have lost your job. It seems you have not been responsible to both be unable to keep a job and in the middle of that to have a kid too. I guess that anyone will be worried. Even if your MIL has instructed your wife, you have to develop a relationship of trust with her and give her assurances that you will be responsible. If she still gives you trouble then meet with a marriage counselor and get some help. If the counselor confronts her​ mother's influence that will be more effective and acceptable.
