I am a student when I am continuous reading my body doing pain so I am very trouble and my study are poor.
You have to give a break of 5-10 mins, for an hour of study, by walking and not being in the same position, this will solve your problem.

Cognitive dysfunction can possibly be attributed to both: your illness, as well as the medications you are taking. It is however essential that you take the medication as prescribed by your psychiatrist. Do not modify, alter, stop or change any medications on your own. The best thing would be to approach your treating doctor with this problem so that they can make any changes (if required) in your prescription.

I am 27 years old and I think I have stress and in order to avoid it what should I do it?

I am 27 years old and I think I have stress and in order to avoid it what should I do it?
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.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, seame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Sleeplessness, aggression angry mood are the symptoms of anxiety. Don't feel panic or anxious because of any problem. Consult with a psychologist near by you and take some relaxation therapies from them. This will help you. Go for a walk daily. Do some yoga exercise or any other exercise daily.

I have a dry cough due to smoking. Im trying to stop smoking but now helpless. My cough is from almost 15days im really worry but cant do anything and cant even tell anyone cos people can only suggest to stop smoking. *worried*

Of course you need to stop smoking. Signs like these are an early warning that you are smoking too much. If you wait for a full-fledged attack of some disease, then you are like most addicts who need to 'Hit Rock Bottom', that it, to reach the worst condition for you to need to stop. Then you are on a reactive mode: heed the warning and act on it fast. Everyone who wishes you well will tell you to quit! Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here’s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear, 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. 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 post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, past is past. Past is dead. Past lives only in your thoughts. In that case, your fear is from thinking about past happening. In that case it is irrational. Irrational obsession. You will be needing rational emotive therapy. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your stress. See, ideally the best thing in this situation is you make a schedule and stick to it, you need to organize your life and make small goals and try to achieve it one step at a time. Apart from scheduling, you may consider doing some meditation- it will provide you focus and clarity and keep you in present moment. Your sleep wake cycle should be on time and healthy diet is must. Consult for any query. All the best.

This question is to a qualified, certified,experienced and competent psychiatrist only. I am 58 years old and Schizophrenic since 1987. I was put on various medications and I responded to them very well and hence there is a lot of relief now. Currently, I am on only one anti-psychotic viz Sizodon Forte 0-0-1 and there is tremendous relief. Of late, my body is showing showing side effects, probably due to the fact that I no longer need powerful anti-psychotics. Now, I don't have hallucinations & delusions. I have two questions here. (a) There are thought disturbances like, always preoccupied with thoughts, and get aggressive thoughts because I am not fully occupied. Is this due to the fact, that I am not working and absence of work is rust to the month Is this a positive symptom of Schizophrenia? (b) I have stammering since childhood and necessary action was taken by a speech therapist and now I speak almost fluently. Because of this, I developed inferiority complex and hence was not socializing, staying aloof from friends and relatives etc. I have this problem even now. My personal hygiene is good. Is this a negative symptom of Schizophrenia? Kindly answer to these two questions, as I can impress on my psychiatrist whom I am visiting next week. Thanks.

Good Morning ~ I appreciate your questions, and also appreciate the fact that you are taking and tolerating your medications with minimal side effects so far. I believe you need appreciation also for having asked questions on this forum. A) Though disturbances like preoccupation with certain types of thoughts and aggressive thoughts are certainly positive symptoms of schizophrenia and may be decreased by non-medication methods like yoga and pranayama or by medication augmentation of your current medications. Like you have said yourself, involving yourself in productive activity may also decrease the symptoms to the point that you may become comfortable without having aggressive thoughts. B) Stammering is a common problem and occurs in 1-2% of the general population. Most likely stammering is anxiety related and gets better over time or with less anxiety. Anxiety can be reduced with either medications or with counseling i.e. Anxiety reducing techniques. Exposing yourself to anxiety provoking situations will reduce your anxiety gradually. Counseling may be helpful in this case. Stammering is separate from schizophrenia. Look forward to hearing from you.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear lybrate-user, congratulations for stopping smoking on your own, if you r motivated to stop it then half battle is won. You will need support of nicotine replacement therapy for few days, you can try various chewing gums or lozenges available at medical stores. If you still have cravings and restlessness consult a psychiatrist for anticraving medications. Drink plenty of water and keep eating something frequently this will help decrease cravings. All the best.

It would be best if you sit down with him and speak your heart out. You need to resolve the situation it can not go on like this forever otherwise one of you will fall apart. Ask him very politely as to what he feels, wishes, what is lacking in the relation. A person gets attracted outside relation usually when something is lacking in one's own relationship you need to build up on that. Ask him what does he want out of the relation, have a open heart to heart conversation. Share your wishes, desires your kid's future. Consult with me for counseling and guidance regarding same. All the best.
