Tendency to worry about even trivial issues and a feeling of anxiety is a common disorder known as generalised anxiety disorder. Only a proper and detailed evaluation will help you reach the root of the problem. Meet a psychiatrist and discuss your issues. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Weed addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

I lose my concentration in studies and lose sleep and appetite also. I have severe headache and it cause difficulty. Why this happened? What should I do?

I lose my concentration in studies and lose sleep and appetite also. I have severe headache and it cause difficulty. ...
You are seemingly stressed and to me it sounds like there could be unresolved anger. I recommend that you meet with a counselor who will help you sort this out. In the meantime follow some of these recommendations to improve concentration: 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 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 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.

I'm experiencing low memory, I forget things, low concentration. I don't know why I'm having enough sleep, diet. Suggest what should I do to have better memory.

BHMS
Homeopath,
First of all you need to do regular exercise or walking. Try resolve your anxiety level. Do some yoga. Practice deep breathing. Most important thing is meditation for 15-20 min. Initially you cannot concentrate bt by the time goes by if continually trying to meditate you can do it. And with this you need proper homeopathic treatment for this. U can also contact me through Lybrate.

Negative attitude towards school is the main reason of this problem. Negativity and feelling discomfort may cause for your head ache. When we are not good control of mind it may also caused for the internal problems. External conditions may also caused for internal problems. So do not feel negativity. Develop good and positive attitude towards school. Love the teacher. Develop interest on studies. Enjoy the good movements in school with your friends. Taste the new items. Feel every time positive. Ok best of luck.

Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Sleep well. 6. Accept that everything can not be under your control. 7. Get involved into humour. And last but not the least. You can take therapy avoiding panic attacks. Take care.

1. I am a young writer. I smoke around 7-8 cigarettes everyday. I want to quit smoking, I've tried various methods but I am not able to. I don't know whether it's my age or influence from personalities around me - I find it difficult not to smoke. I want to quit -Please help 2. I work on laptop for 12-14 hours a day, my long vision is getting blurry .is this because of smoking or access use of laptop? 3. I am addicted to black coffee as well I drink around 3 cups a day. Well I guess that should not be a problem, what makes it difficult is that I can't start my day without it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to use Lap for only a few hours an in between you have to look elsewhere and wash eyes. Black coffee is OK to start a day .Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test.

Modafinil is a good medication to keep you alert. But it is imperative for you to get investigated in detail if you tend to feel sleepy even after having 8-10 hours of sleep in the daytime. If the illness warrants use of Modafinil I guess any good psychiatrist would help you out.
