Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

MBBS, DPM, DNB (PSYCHIATRY)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The goal of treatment of Bipolar disorder is not just quick relief from the current mood episode but to be able to prevent future mood eposides. Hence treatment doesn’t end after the remission of current mood episode but it is very important to continue the treatment for a long period of time (depending upon case to case...but at least one year) to prevent or at least reduce the risk of developing future mood eposides. This long term treatment is called maintenance phase. It is important to visit ur psychiatrist regularly as medications need to be adjusted/changed according to the phase of treatment a Bipolar pt is in. It is a delicate balancing act.

My brother in law is a schizophrenia patient. After my marriage i came to know that my father in law too had faced some problem before his marriage (details not know), two more first cousins have had stints of depression. Is mental problem hereditary? What are the chances of my children having such problems? Are there tests to check if the child is ok before the delivery?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Yes. A proportion of mental disorders are hereditary but as it is not autosomal dominant or sex linked genetic disorder it can not be predicted surely that the child will have it or not. Yes, definitely the chances are more than the general population, in which the family history is negative. No in utero test can determine about a child to get mental illness in future. There is a two hit hypothesis proposed by scientists that genetic predisposition plus stressors in life can increase the chances of mental illness to occur.

I'm 22 years old. I've been smoking for 6 months. When I started smoking, I used to smoke 10 cigarettes in a day. 1 month ago I started smoking 2 cigarettes a day. 2 weeks ago I was having liquor on a friend's birthday (I drink occasionally) after that we had vaang with malai kulfi. First 1 hour I was ok but then when I got back home, I started feeling suffocated and also started vomiting, feeling weak, legs started shaking, chest pain etc. I took pankreoflat after that and PAN40 and everything came back to normal. Next day I was alright and had home made breakfast, lunch, dinner and didn't smoke. 2 days later I had pizza and I felt uneasy. It felt like something stuck inside my chest. I was shocked but it got stopped after few hours of rest. From then on I started taking home made food and take green tea twice in a day and drink lots of water. But sometimes I feel like the food is not going down , it gets stuck somewhere in chest. I also feel chest pain in the morning. Is this digestion problem or lungs problem and what should I do now?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You neither have digestive disorder nor lung disorder. Buf the problem is reflex related to acidity. You are doing well. Make sure to consume only homely food without much spices and oil. Exercise regularly. Include ginger and garlic in your daily diet. You will be alright in a week. Take care.

People with low self esteem are 80 % more likely to criticize others & make efforts to embarrass others in order to make themselves feel better, smarter & tougher. There are better ways to feel good about yourself, one of it is end your day by affectionately looking directly into eyes of your mirror image & saying "I LOVE YOU". You will see the difference in a month.

There seems to be underlying stress because of which you start crying suddenly. Counselling helps people to explore their life in a safe and non judgemental way and understanding themselves and others with more awareness. You might be hanving some harmonal imbalance because of which you cry often. Do get your health checks done. Exercise regularly to help the flow of important neurotransmitters which regulate emotions and happiness.

Whenever you want to discontinue medication, have a consultation with your treating doctor who knows all your records. It is not gonna give you big deal, when discontinuing, the symptoms which settled with that 15 days of duration restarts again and continuing medications further will take longer time for the symptoms to get settled. Do not forget to have opinion from your treating doctor.

I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.
It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. It seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

Hello doctor, I want to ask some time i get blanked, at that time I try to remember something but I can't at that time my ability of thing and memorizing get reduced I can't speak properly, I am facing this from 8 months i'm very much worried about this please help me out to get rid of this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hello lybrate-user, memory loss during this age is unusual. For this, doctor has to know your life style, emotional as well as mental state at this point. Total it would help us to decide what is to be treated for regaining memory with constitutional homeopathic care. Thanks.

I am 57 years old, male, having Depression/Anxiety and Schizophrenia since 1987. I have taken innumerous drugs and got relief. Right now I am on Sertraline 100 mg 1-0-0 and mirtazapine 15 mg 0-0-1 for depression/Anxiety. Symptoms are under control. For schizophrenia, I am currently on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and qutipin 100 mg 0-0-1. There is relief. But there no positive symptoms viz hallucinations or delusions. But there are negative symptoms like dullness and no pleasure in doing day-to-day activities, staying aloof from relatives and friends. In short, I have withdrawn into my shell. Are the above symptoms confirmed negative symptoms of schizophrenia or are they symptoms of depression? Please advice.

You are already on two good antidepressants so it is less likely that you have uncontrolled depression. These seem more likely to be negative symptoms of schizophrenia according to the data you provided. However it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in person to decide any form of treatment too be improvised. Also it is would be prudent to reconsider the diagnosis too if you still face the same problems in spite of taking regular medications. Consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Dear lybrate user, you are sad and are under lot of stress. You have mentioned that presently, you do not have a cordial relationship with your husband. I think you have experienced some breech of trust in this relationship and hence are finding it difficult to trust anyone else also. Relationship with your spouse is your most intimate and prime relationship. When this relationship is not working very well, it is going to affect your other relationships. I would request you to see a counsellor who will help you with understanding your relationship with your husband. Many times there is misunderstanding because of lack of proper communication. With the help of the counsellor you may be able to improve your relations with your husband (even if he does not come for counselling sessions). Once this relation improves, you will have lesser stress and will be able to enjoy life more. If your relationship with your husband is beyond repair, the counsellor will help you to move ahead in life. Please take help from a counsellor. Take care.

Hi, this is regard your wife, post stroke every patient generally have a good recover phase atleast till 6 months with or without treatment but when its paired with medicine and therapy the recovery looks better. Since you have not given any speech therapy, you may not see any major improvements like before, so you need to ask your neurophysician regard the stimulants which can enhance the development but also I recommend you visit a local speech language pathologist also called as speech therapist who would guide you to assist your wife with the speech outcome.
