Back ache, running nose and anxiety symptoms etc are some of the less common the side effect of this medicine. You should consult your diabetician for further advise and change in the medicine. Take care.

Now i'm in college 1 st year. When I was in class 11, Probably I felt in crush with a girl. As happens in that age. But don't know why at that time I never make me agree to this. However for over thinking on that useless matter I just lose my normal and very sharp type of thinking (the style of approaching to a study problem). And eventually I almost had a phobia to girls at that time. I don't know why that happened meaninglessly. It needs 1 year to make me OK. Now everything is ALRIGHT. But I can never found that type of brilliant thinking about study. It's not that now I cannot think but it is LIKE that there's no satisfaction and self confidence while doing study. I eagerly want that concentration back. Please suggest me the way to make me that. I'm in hard academic study line. So there's a lot need here. I hope you can help me.

When you have a crush over a girl all hell breaks lose in your heart and your head. During that time, hormones are playing havoc together with your age. This excitement is capable of exciting your neurons endlessly and make you have break-through type of thinking. Also, wanting to impress a girl young guys will be willing to scale any heights and performances to attract and hold her attention towards you. If you can revive that kind of relationship now you may stimulate ethe same now too. But just to get that sharp thinking you cannot go around finding a girl to serve a selfish purpose. So, I am suggesting some alternative natural things to do to increase your creative thinking: 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 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 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. There is 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 the family goes for counseling too. 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, Regular exercise is a powerful stress reliever—even though it may be the last thing you feel like doing. Aerobic exercise—activity that raises your heart rate and makes you sweat—is a hugely effective way to lift your mood, increase energy, sharpen focus, and relax both the mind and body. For best results, try to get at least 30 minutes of activity that elevates your heart rate and makes you break out into a sweat on most days. If it’s easier to fit into your schedule, break up the activity into two or three shorter segments. Low blood sugar can make you feel anxious and irritable, while eating too much can make you lethargic. Healthy eating can help you get through stressful work days. By eating small but frequent meals, you can help your body maintain an even level of blood sugar, keep your energy up, stay focused, and avoid mood swings. Do not smoke or drink alcohol. Practice deep breathing at night before sleeping. Breathe from abdomen and inhale from nose and exhale from mouth. Do not bring work stress at home. Wear loose clothes at night, have warm milk before sleeping.

I think I might have dissociative identity disorder, and I am seeing a psychiatrist this Wednesday. But I just wanted to know that, is it very likely that I might have it? Because, I do have all the other characteristics, but- I do have difficulty remembering things I did through out the day, I can't tell you quickly if I have had my meals, or where I left my keys, I keep losing track of my stuff. But I don't have total blank spaces in my memory.

Well the symptoms you have described suggest more towards a problem in concentration and attention which needs a detailed evaluation. Adolescents with thyroid problem, hormonal issues and stress can have these symptoms usually. These symptoms doesn't fit for a diagnosis of dissociative disorder. Kindly relax and let the psychiatrist help you. All the best.

It is quite natural that every wives should expect her husband to spend time for her. It is the duty of husband to satisfy her. If he is busy on all weekdays ask him to free from work pressure on weekends. Spend time with him on weekends. Try to talk to him when he finds himself free about the expectations of yours.

Lybrate-user. Its really wonderful that you r doing yoga but do not stop it as it will help you in a long run. For a faster improvement, you need to do following things to improve your concentration start tratak. Looking a flame of a candle plsced at 3 feet at your eye level. Start writing your diary of good thoughts and your achievements to reduce your pessimism. Start writing time table of your srkf study and routine which will give you an organised day and improve your confidence. Group duscussion improves your concentration. Brisk walk everyday if still no improvement, you need to consult a psychiatrist. You may be put on antidepressants which will take care of pessimism and improve your confidence and concentration. Take care!

I am 16 years old male and I am suffering from psychosis such as chemical imbalance, does transcranial magnetic stimulation is done for psychosis .does it works?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Shaik, rTMS is repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is one of the modes of treatment - but not the only mode. If drugs do not work or if you can not tolerate drugs and if you are suicidal, it will be advised. You can take it at conscious level unlike ECT that is done under anaesthesia. It needs a number of sessions. Please discuss with you r doctor about it. You can assess the improvement yourself. But you need to continue the medicines also along with rTMS.

Stress is in fact a cause and even a deterring factor in improvement of psoriasis with treatment. This is also a reason for your sleeping and anxiety problems. To be simple, unless your stress is treated psoriasis may not improve well enough or even may have a propensity to relapse. Hence it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist and consider some treatment for the same. This would definitely help you in long term management of psoriasis.

Hi,I'm addicted to internet. Due to this I'm facing serious problems. I'm unable to focus on studies. How to overcome from this problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what it is in the internet that you are addicted to: facebook, twitter, emails etc. These are all social sites and the most likely reason you feel addicted to them is that they provide a platform of interacting, without facing them, and getting much desired attention. This is usually an indication of the need for attention, which you may not be receiving adequately from your family and immediate circles. In other words, if you get good attention with some excitement, you will be able to give up this addiction rather, easily. Then, there is the problem of obsession and compulsion to want to do the net, leaving you little choice but to continue the behavior. You could also be covering up another deep need in you that is being met by being occupied and distracted into something else. Sometimes, it is related to a deep-rooted pain that needs some therapeutic attention. It will be good for you to attend some counseling in this regard. If you stayed away from the internet for 21 days, you can, to some extent, overcome the tendency. Then, you need to spend another 7 weeks reinforcing this new behavior. Most addicts are very intelligent people and it is sometimes their frustration that they are not getting what they deserve and are capable of, that leads to a lot of disenchantment in life: the addiction somehow gives them some outlet for that frustration. The addictive behavior has an element of being destructive too and so you need to address that drive in you to choose life instead of death! this is well dealt with in the script issue, then, there is the rigid value system, and some contribution from some genetic influences that may seem unrelated but will have an influence. These can be addressed through counseling, and must be kept up for nearly three years to completely resolve it. You need to find alternative interesting activities and create a new set of friends and social circles. Get into a tight time-schedule and fill it will mind and body occupying activities. Exercise must be an integral part of your daily life too. Sleep well and eat healthily too. Look at your career and see if changes need to be made in that area of your life. New study courses and skills set can be acquired to make some important successes in your professional life: most people from good families, successful careers, and good jobs have a faster and better recovery from addictions!

I don't know how to read. Even though I read & revise many times I forget them. Again wen I start to read I will feel that I am reading it for first time. How can improve my memory power & how should I read. is there any procedure that I can do so that I can concentrate?

Thanks for your query. This can happen because you are unable to concentrate on what you are reading or it is presented to you in a manner that you cannot retain in your memory or you are too busy and occupied with activities other than study either in your mind or outside. At your age memory problems are uncommon. You just have to modify the way you study. Please contact me in private section and I will be able to advise accordingly. Please ask me in private section for medicines.

My daughter is 7 years old but she have a problem to remember of study que ans wt should I do for it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
For a child of that age use a play-way method to help her remember. However, I am concerned whether you are pushing her too much or having high expectations on her. If the teachers are also complaining, then there may be some concern. In that case I recommend that you go to a child counselor who specializes in child learning difficulties who will need information, both genetic and as well as her history from prenatal days. If there are any disturbing experiences, they may play a role in distracting her. Simple sensory recall techniques are taught very well in a Montessori school, and so you may consider shifting her to one such school. Picture recall is an easily used method to improve memory. Before that she must be able to concentrate: Yoga has some good exercises to improve concentration, which you might explore.
