Dear Doctor, Last week my wife slips down on wet floor. She has strained the back part of the thigh and it has developed a blood clotted patch of say 4 inch diameter. It is paining her. There is no swelling as such but a discomfort is there. We are doing light massage with hot mustard oil and healthy. ALSO WE ARE SPRAYING A DEEP HEAT ON IT. Kindly advise what to do for getting a relief from pain while walking. It is something like rupture at soft part of the thigh back.

Please avoid massage You can just use spray for pain if clot comes will take min 15 days and upto three weeks If you wish to be more sure then get basic ultrasound done to look for amount of collection may it require needle aspiration by atleast 18 G needle Also feel free to consult surgeon if her pain increase Same time I must say you she is very lucky that no bone injury Please use antiskid slipper since with time we forget what happened but this simple mistake can take bidder shape in future be careful I wish her fast recovery.

Stress can not be cured by medicine alone. What is your bp you have to make changes in your routine so as to feel relaxed. For the time being you do 1/ morning walk for 30 mts 2. Deep breathing exercise for 5- 10 mts daily 3. These will remove any amount of stress you get in routine. Try for 15 days and report.

My brother suffers from depression and aimlessness in life. He himself went for a rehab. For sometime and is back now. Initial months he was still better but now again he is sleeping and waking up late, don't feel like going to shop. And I guess he is going back into that state. Also family specially mother expects him to go out there and earn, what should be done?

Dear we all know that aim comes from what i want to do not from what others want me to do. Your brother needs to start from small things which he wish to do be it listening to his favourite music or eating what he likes. To get interested in work again matters to what he likes to do. He may need some simple medication suport in the beginning also don't worry some high n low times will come for him to cope. Please consult privately to give you detailed plan to follow.

Suffering form depression from long time, tried different antidepressants nexito, vilano currently on bupropion. Bupropion has lifted few of the symptoms but not completely. M from medical profession and read about melancholic depression and I am having most of the symptoms related to it like anhedonia, early morning awakening, depression more severe in the morning. I wanted to know, what's the success rate of melancholic depression with bupropion or other AD. Tca has got better result compared to other drugs. What about fluoxetine? Or venflaxine So shall I give a try to TCA .and any other tips in particular to melancholic depression.

Dear lybrate-user, Most antidepressants work more or less at the same level. Mostly, you go by the side-effects - whether they are acceptable by you. Both Vilazodone and Bupropion have minimal sexual side effect. Fluoxetine has more erectile dysfunction. Weight and sedation are also to be taken into account. If you can tolerate effective dose of TCA, you can try. Otherwise go for Venlafaxine. The only tip is - it is not the antidepressant. It is the duration (minimum 3-6 weeks) and dose (TCA and Venlafaxine 75 - 225 mg) of the tablet that matters.

Study Smarter and Not Harder!

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Study Smarter and Not Harder!

There are few things I hear over and over again from students:

  1. How they are studying for so many in a day
  2. How they do not have even time for anything else in their life due to study pressure
  3. How they are sleep deprived
  4. How much they are stressed
  5. And finally, after all the sacrifices and hard work, their exam performance is not what they expect.

Here are few tips to study smart, improve your grades and yet have a life!
We all know that 2 hours of focused study will be much more productive than 4 hours of distracted study. And, the good news is that concentration is a mental skill that you can develop and improve. There are two ways to improve your concentration:

A. First, work on raising your brain's natural ability to concentrate or in other words, learn to increase your attention span.
B. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier.

Improving your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it is worth it. In my personal experience with students, I have seen noticeable improvement in relatively short time.

A. Ideas for daily concentration boosting habits include

  1. Mindfulness meditation: Many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Mindfulness meditation, where one focuses on one's breathing,  is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. To begin with you may try a guided meditation. One can easily find audios for guided meditation online.
  2. Proper sleep: I am sorry to say this. Pulling all nighters will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be to study as well as answer questions in exams.
  3. Food for your Brain: The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not just keep scoring higher in the game! Try Lumosity and use only free version this will help you restrict your daily play time to 20 minutes and have maximum benefit.
  4. Eat healthier: Your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Instead you could keep some nuts such as walnuts, almond or peanuts as in between munches. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could.  
  5. Exercise: It is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing energy and focus. At least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Going for a short jog of 20 minutes will make next 4 to 5 hours of study very efficient.

B. Optimize your mental state & environment

In addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine; also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying.

  1. Create a study space: Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed.
  2. Remove distractions: Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration.
  3. Reduce background noises: If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking.
  4. Use timer: Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time.
  5. Stay motivated: If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing 2-3 hours of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to.
  6. Take breaks: Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind.

Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also.

How an expert can help?
If you want to get individualized expert opinion about how you are studying currently and what ways you can improve; you can always consult the expert. Once he/she knows what your current study methods are, they will be able to give you specific tips to improve upon. Most likely once you incorporate those tips you will be spending less time studying and your grades will improve. That's what is studying smarter and not harder means!!

My Son's going 7th std. He is very slow in written. When he is appearing an exams he avoid some passage level answer but he knows the answer, he omit that questions. Kindly give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Most children display a problem in their written for a considerable bit of time in school. I suggest that you give him a lot of practice in written answers as preparation before exams and even during the rest of the year. The reason could be many, if you were to explore for other causes. I think that there may be something bothering him either at home, socially, personally, or at school. You may talk to the school counselor or find an academic counselor and let them talk to him in confidence and see if they can locate the particular stress he may be feeling. Emotionally it may have to do with fear, sadness or anger. I am more inclined to think it is the later. He will then need some help in dealing with his feelings, and if there is any contributor that you can do something about, I am sure it will help. At this age, he is going through some hormonal changes and they will also contribute to developing attitudes that are not due your child’s design but by the influence of these chemicals. In that case you must be very gentle with him and help him tide over this phase with a lot of your support. If at any point you need professional guidance do not hesitate to seek one.
