I have a problem of forgetting, I can remember easily but forget after sometime. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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

I lost my love, I always thinks about her I am feeling very depressed every time mind diverted, please help me!
Dear Sachin. Welcome to lybrate. Depression related to lost love is pretty common. You have to accept the fact. Accepting the fact that the lost love will not come back, is the first step towards cure. Accept it. Also accept that you can do nothing about it. Slowly your emotions will die down. Don't worry. It is a matter of two or three weeks. Consult a psychologist online for counseling if need be. Take care.

Stop smoking get medical tests done and then start treatment. Without knowing the reason behind headache, blind medicines are not good. Smoking itself can induce headache.

DEAR Lybrate USE Common causes of poor sleep (insomnia) in your case may be: -Poor sleep hygiene -Anxiety -Depression -Excessive stress -Substance use if present -Primary insomnia Common symptoms of anxiety and depression are: anxiety, low mood, decrease talk and interaction with others, nervousness, restlessness, mild irritability, excessive worry regarding own health, tremor, muscle spasm, heaviness in body, easy fatigability, headache, sleep disturbance, negative thinking, palpitation and dry mouth. Let me know if you are having some of the above symptoms with duration. Apart from that, chronic insomnia also lead to anxiety and depression. Irrespective of cause, below principles of sleep hygiene which will help you in long term: • Fix a bedtime and an awakening time. Do not be one of those people who allows bedtime and awakening time to drift. The body "gets used" to falling asleep at a certain time, but only if this is relatively fixed. Even if you are retired or not working, this is an essential component of good sleeping habits. • Avoid napping during the day • Avoid caffeine 4-6 hours before bedtime. This includes caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea and many sodas, as well as chocolate, so be careful. • Avoid heavy, spicy, or sugary foods 4-6 hours before bedtime • Exercise regularly, but not right before bed. Regular exercise, particularly in the afternoon, can help deepen sleep. • Use comfortable bedding. • Find a comfortable temperature setting for sleeping and keep the room well ventilated. • Block out all distracting noise, and eliminate as much light as possible. • Reserve the bed for sleep. Don't use the bed as an office, workroom or recreation room. Let your body "know" that the bed is associated with sleeping. • Practice relaxation techniques before bed. Relaxation techniques such as yoga, deep breathing and others may help relieve anxiety and reduce muscle tension. • Don't take your worries to bed. Leave your worries about job, school, daily life, etc. Behind when you go to bed. Some people find it useful to assign a "worry period" during the evening or late afternoon to deal with these issues. • Establish a pre-sleep ritual. Pre-sleep rituals, such as a warm bath or a few minutes of reading, can help you sleep. • Getting Up in the Middle of the Night :Most people wake up one or two times a night for various reasons. If you find that you get up in the middle of night and cannot get back to sleep within 15-20 minutes, then do not remain in the bed "trying hard" to sleep. Get out of bed. Leave the bedroom. Read, have a light snack, do some quiet activity, or take a bath. You will generally find that you can get back to sleep 20 minutes or so later. Do not perform challenging or engaging activity such as office work, housework, etc. Do not watch television. • A Word About Television: Many people fall asleep with the television on in their room. Watching television before bedtime is often a bad idea. Television is a very engaging medium that tends to keep people up. We generally recommend that the television not be in the bedroom. At the appropriate bedtime, the TV should be turned off and the patient should go to bed. Some people find that the radio helps them go to sleep. Since radio is a less engaging medium than TV, this is probably a good idea.

Dear , you are already 26. I suggest you to start the process of conception. That is because of the cumbersome problems associated with life. I don't know your husband's age. Must be atleast 30. For him, this is the ideal time to have a kid. Otherwise in old age, you will be in trouble. As well as you may not provide the child with good education and career. Talk to your husband regarding this. It is a myth that you cannot enjoy life with your husband after having child. Life becomes more beautiful for you and your husband after the child is born. Please keep away from myths and from people who advise you without knowing your family situation. I need to talk toyou more on this regard. If you are interested, please book an online counseling session. Take care.

I am 20 years old. I am an architecture student so I have a lot of pressure and stress everyday. I cant sleep properly in the night. My presentations are also very weak. When I go on stage I sweat a lot and I am very feared. I forget what I have to explain. Even in class I cannot participate in group discussions. What should I do. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You re all of 20 years old and have so many what I consider stress-related disorders. Many students are doing architecture but you are probably the only one with so many complications. The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us pressure beyond our capacity. If you look at life with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. Attend personality development course, good conversations skills course and public speaking skills course.

Dear lybrate user, I guess you were very proud of your complexion. I think you are very disappointed and sad because of skin tanning. You need to understand a few things. Firstly, lot of hormonal changes take place in the body during and after pregnancy. This might cause some changes in your complexion. Secondly, there might be a few other reasons why your skin is getting tanned, like - more exposure to the sun or may be you are not getting enough time to look after yourself or some medication and nutritional changes. Try to find out what happened exactly and then try to resolve it. But most importantly, you need to understand that fairness and beauty is not a permanent feature. Every person goes through these bodily changes while aging. Eventually one day you will lose your fairness. Fair skin is not the ultimate thing in life. There are many other things like intelligence, character, confidence, social skills, smile, behaviour etc which are very important for any individual. Beauty is a relative term and is short lived. Whereas all the abovementioned characteristics are not short lived. You, as an individual are more than your fair skin. Try to understand your strengths, focus on them. Do not try to harm yourself because you will harm your body and mind futher, I would suggest you to take an appointment with a counsellor who will help you to resolve this issue. Take care.

Its perfectly normal, dont feel guilty about it. Even in a relationship adults having sex outside is quite normal. In life love, passion and lust have thin boundaries. As long as it is a consensual sex between 2 consenting adults then it is medically not wrong. But different societies, and culture promote monogamy as the way of life and consider these events as ethically wrong. Whether this is right, varies between individual perception according to their own brought up, cultural values, and knowledge. What is right for one is wrong for another. So don't make life complicated and live as it comes. Enjoy life without making others or yourself unhappy.

Chronic Pain - Understanding Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)!

MBBS, MD, FIMSA, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Delhi
Chronic Pain - Understanding Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)!

Pain is one of the most common reasons for patients to seek medical attention and one of the most prevalent medical complaints in today’s world. Chronic pain has many causes and can affect any part of the body. Conditions most associated with pain include arthritis, headache, neck and back problems, cancer, neuropathies eg. Diabetic, chronic regional pain syndromes (CRPS), pelvic pain disorders, fibromyalgia, myofacial pains, herpes and trigeminal neuralgias.

Chronic pain can lead to depression, anxiety, marital & interpersonal problems, decreased productivity, unemployment, compromised social roles, isolation, financial burden, dependence, prolonged analgesics usage, decreased self-esteem with behavioral changes adversely affecting mental and physical abilities, activities of daily living & ruining quality of life.
Pain still remains inappropriate & inadequately treated. Although tremendous scientific & technological advances have been made, the knowledge & techniques are highly underutilized. Untreated pain destroys people’s lives. I have had patients come in who couldn’t work or sleep or play with their children. Good pain management gave them their lives back. It is cruel to deny people in pain access to effective pain treatment. People should not be suffering needlessly.

Thus, pain clinics are specialized areas that are now assuming the role of an essential service as they meet a need unmet by any previously existing medical facility. They help by simultaneously treating the physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, vocational and social aspects of chronic pain cost-effectively.

Our ultimate goal is to cure & care people suffering from pain, make them productive human beings for the society and increase their self-esteem so that they can live life as normal individuals.
Interventional pain procedures scores over both medicine and surgery, as they do not have side effects like medicines. Surgeries for pain, have now limited indications, usually as a last resort.
The interventional pain procedures produce immediate pain relief, can be performed with ease by pain physicians without anesthesia as outpatient or daycare and adequate duration of pain relief obtained and suitable for surgically unfit & debilitated patients, procedure can be repeated safely if required.

In the absence of proper education among health care professionals and lack of awareness in the public mind in India, there is misuse of painkillers resulting in high incidence of complications like gastritis, kidney failure, bone marrow depression and bleeding from gut which can be catastrophic.


Carpal Tunnel Syndrom : It is neuralgic / tingling pain in hand & forearm caused by the pressure on supplying Median Nerve in carpal tunnel, aggravated during sleep or heavy exertion. It can be treated effectively with medicines. Non responders can go for simple injection treatment with dramatic results. Surgery remains the last choice only.

Fibromyalgia and Myo-fascial pain syndrome: These are conditions characterized by pain in the muscles following severe spasm associated with morning stiffness, disturbed sleep, a feeling of swelling and have clear trigger points. These points are tender and when palpated produce the typical pain.


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
CRPS is a chronic progressive disease characterized by severe pain, swelling and changes in the skin. Though treatment is often unsatisfactory, early multimodal therapy can cause dramatic improvement or remission of the syndrome in some patients. The International has divided CRPS into two types based on the presence of nerve lesion following the injury.

  • Type I, formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), Sudeck’s atrophy, reflex neurovascular dystrophy (RND) or algoneurodystrophy, does not have demonstrable nerve lesions.
  • Type II, formerly known as causalgia, has evidence of obvious nerve damage.

The cause of this syndrome is currently unknown. Precipitating factors include injury and surgery, although there are documented cases that have no demonstrable injury to the original site. The symptoms of CRPS usually manifest near the site of an injury, either major or minor. The most common symptoms overall are burning and electrical sensations, described to be like “shooting pain.” The patient may also experience muscle spasms, local swelling, abnormally increased sweating, changes in skin temperature and color, softening and thinning of bones, joint tenderness or stiffness, restricted or painful movement.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Recognize the physical symptoms. ... Control your breathing. ... Take prescription medication. ... Try to continue your activity. ... Avoid running away. ... Focus on other things. ... Distinguish between a stressful experience and a panic attack. ... Implement relaxation techniques. Certain antidepressants can help prevent anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks, but are not used for immediate relief during an attack. Frequently used antidepressants are the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, and Zoloft.

Hello lybrate-user, you need to take your father to a de-addiction center, where they admit him and he undergoes detoxification and medicines are given under supervision. Each patient reacts differently to such meds. So its better to have him admitted rather an opd treatment.

You father is going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.
