Anxiety, tiredness in day time, no concentration, depression, bad mood, memory loss what I have to do for this problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Hello , all the symptoms that you have described are suggestive of a depressive disorder. When left untreated it might last form a few months to an year or more. Mood invariably influences your thought process & that might lead to development of depressive cognitions & usually the performance levels tend to become less satisfactory. Coming to your query of memory loss. It is usually a result of decreased concentration that in turn affects the process of memory formation ( happens in three steps registration, retrieval & recall ) the first step registration does not happen in a proper way & this manifests as memory deficit. Please consult a psychiatrist to evaluate the severity of the condition, based on his or her evaluation your condition you would be suggested an appropriate way of managing the condition both pharmacological( if required ) & behavioural.

Hi, you are very young to have such a problem, this is a psychological problem not a real problem that you should first understand. You do not have any medical issue, the problem is in your thinking. I could suggest you to first have a good sleep, ignore all the thoughts running in you, while going to sleep that is just say all are false (nothing is wrong with me I am fine) you have go to keep saying this and you have got to fight against this thinking and sleep well. Because of not having a sound sleep only, you have pain in your head. Try to attend yoga for relaxation. Try to change your mind set (divert, fight against your false thinking, have a sound sleep) let me know after following these steps, whether you were able to relax without pain or not. Get back to me after two or three days, after strictly following these steps. I want to know who is along with you to give some more suggestions to you only. Best wishes

Dear, your doctors must have told you these things. Schizophrenia is manageable with the medicines. The depth of your schizophrenia is to be analyzed before I make any comments here. According to the depth and type of schizophrenia, you may have to take these medicines throughout so that you can manage your problem. Please work with your psychiatrist for further knowledge and management. Take care.

Dr. I am a ca ipcc student and needs more time to study but when I am going to study I feel very low and feels my energy level very low. I gets tired without doing any hard work That's why I can not study too much please tell me any ayurvedic medicine available in market for boosting my energy level and faster brain work.

MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Pune
Hi Mayur, Rather than searching for drugs to boost your memory and attention, I'd suggest you focus on doing the basics right. By basics, I mean, sleeping for at least 7 hours, eat small meals at regular intervals, exercise regularly, and take short 2-5 minute breaks after every 45 minutes of studying. Also, spend at least half hour each day, doing something you enjoy doing, like listening to music, playing an outdoor sport, or cook, anything that makes you happy. Your mind needs refreshing, and doing the things I've mentioned above will help you achieve that. Good luck.

My father took decision to quit smoke. He had been smoking for thirty years . Presently he has not smoked for 6 days and he is feeling very anxious and irritated all the time. Please also recommend how to detoxify the lungs too.

This is a very treasured moment in his life itself. You must encourage him and be with him engaging him as much as possible. He will feel anxiety and irritation for some time but do encourage him to talk about his feelings. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines the lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. His oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing will be impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but take him for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of his abuse. Regarding improving his lungs, he needs to do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through his nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which he can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses his system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting himself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep himself 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 let him announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. HIsd resolution is important and keeping him motivated is the task for the rest of the family. You must capture this opportunity and make it his best effort.

You must be under some stress and that will cause a problem for sleep. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT , then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

In my third year engineering college I believed it would be the best year of my life. So I started behaving nicely with everyone else and expected everyone to be the same. But things started to fall apart I thought my best friend would always be by my side but he was cunning and was trying to save his own ass. Then I started to assume I am a victim of the world and everyone is trying to insult me or just trying to be more smart. I got the feeling of being paranoid. And I believe I can't start fresh and can't learn anything new. Please help.

Hi Lybrate user Don't think too much about behaviors of others, even if you do your best to be kind and considerate, you may still be judge negatively by others. This is not a reflection of your feeling rather, it is a reflection on where the others are coming from. People often behave in the only way they know how. So pl don't waste your precious time be your own best friend, take care of yourself and try to focus on your studies, your goal. Thanks.

Brain Power Boosting Exercise Tip
1. Aerobic exercise is particularly good for the brain, so choose activities that keep your blood pumping. In general, anything that is good for your heart is great for your brain.
2. Physical activities that require hand-eye coordination or complex motor skills are particularly beneficial for brain building.
3. Exercise breaks can help you get past mental fatigue and afternoon slumps. Even a short walk or a few jumping jacks can be enough to reboot your brain.

How can I increase my memory power, I can not remember things which are said to me just 5 minutes ago?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Sayed, Welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy.Take care.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal (hormonal) problems, metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia. Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision. It's a safe and near scarless procedure. Consult a plastic surgeon for that. You can share your problems in more details along with the photographs also.

How to Treat Depression in Young Adults?

How to Treat Depression in Young Adults?

There is a wide range of remedies that are available to treat depression in young adults. While there is no proven way of treating depression, broadly there are three approaches that is psychological, medical and natural. The key is to know the cause of depression. Once the cause is known, a qualified professional decides the course of treatment.

Psychological Treatment: Psychological treatments revolve around talking with the patient and change the way he thinks. It equips an individual to cope up with stress, depression and conflicts.

The three most popular treatment approaches are CBT, IPT and MBCT:

  1. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is an approach where the behavioral pattern of the patient is analyzed and a certain change in behavior is suggested to deal with depression. CBT is a problem-solving approach where a psychologist first analyzes the problem and helps a patient to see the problem from a more positive aspect. 
  2. Interpersonal therapy (IPT) deals with problems related to personal relationships. It analyses the relationship pattern of a patient and specifically addresses them to drive away depression. 
  3. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a group activity and encourages a patient to express their feelings. The idea is to share as much as a patient can. It helps the mind to focus on the present rather than wondering it to something irrelevant that causes depression.

Medical treatment: Medical treatment deals with depression with the help of antidepressants. Medication depends on the level of depression. For more serious depression, such as psychosis and bipolar disorder, a doctor often prescribes psychotic drugs along with antidepressants and mood stabilizers. Medical treatment is suggested only when psychological treatment fails. A patient might have to get admitted in a good facility for a short time or full period of the treatment.

The natural treatment: It is related to lifestyle changes and helps a patient overcome depression. It can be followed along with other forms of treatment. Some good practices are as follows:

  1. A good diet: A healthy diet often helps to fight depression. Serotonin rich food such as coconut oil, fish oil, eggs, cherries, Omega-3 acid greatly helps in fighting depression.
  2. Stay away from Caffeine: Any caffeine related products such as coffee, cigarettes or liquor should be avoided during the depression.
  3. Meditation: Meditation greatly helps in overcoming depression. It offers the much-needed piece of mind and helps to concentrate more.
  4. Daily exercise: It has been observed that regular physical activities such as walking, running and free hand exercise can be of great help in overcoming depression. It uplifts mood and reduces stress.
  5. Pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds contain important elements such as magnesium, healthy fat, amino acid and L-tryptophan. Pumpkin seeds help to secrete serotonin and serotonin, in turn, help in fighting depression.

My symptoms are matching with neurons damage. I am having memory, concentration and focus problems. I am 19. Am I really having my neurons destroying? Also I am addicted to excessive masturbation. Whom should I consult? Are there any home remedies to cure them rapidly?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Having memory/concentration/ focus problems is not necessarily due to neuronal damage; they may occur due to multiple causes. Unless you are abusing substances, having exposure to toxins, or having any neurodegenerative disease, it is less likely that you have neuronal damage at the age of 18. Try some meditation, relaxation techniques or yoga to improve your concentration and reduce your anxiety. Masturbation is natural. However when it begins to take over your entire life and occupies all your time, or prevents you from creating/ maintaining meaningful relationships, it is a significant problem. If the problem is overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist.

Effects of Parental Alienation Syndrome on Children

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology
Psychologist, Noida
Effects of Parental Alienation Syndrome on Children

In many cases; divorce and separation leads not only to bad blood between the parents, but also in a child alienating himself from one parent. Insulting or belittling one parent without justification or under pressure from the other parent is known as parental alienation syndrome. Parental alienation involves one parent undermining the other and interfering with the child’s relationship with the other parent by limiting contact with them, bad mouthing them, forbidding discussion about them etc. This can have a very negative effect on the child’s emotional state.

1. Self hatred: For children, hatred is not inborn, but developed by the situations they are in. By bad mouthing a parent and teaching the child to hate the parent, the child himself is harmed. With time, he begins to internalize this hatred and believe that there is something wrong with him that made the alienated parent not want him.

2. Low self esteem: When a child is not allowed to speak his mind and has to bottle up his thoughts, he becomes socially withdrawn. Often the child begins to feel that he is the cause for the rift in the family and makes himself responsible for the separation. This intensifies with time and makes the child lose confidence in himself leading to low self esteem.

3. Lack of trust: When a child is suddenly pulled away from one parent and told how that parent is not a ‘good person’ the child is likely to feel betrayed. This creates a sense of doubt in the child’s mind and makes it difficult for him to trust other people. As he grows up, this can affect his own adult relationships as well.

4. Depression: Depression is a commonly seen in children from broken homes and this is intensified in cases of parental alienation. It is rooted in the child’s feeling unloved by either one of the parents and built up by the separation. Not being given a chance to speak about their feelings or talk about the situation makes them more depressed and they begin to withdraw into themselves. In many cases, it is noted that alienated children have strained relationships with their own children as well.

5. Substance abuse: Depression is one of the most common triggers for substance abuse. Alienated children often feels trapped and that they have no outlet to vent their feelings and frustrations. This often makes them turn towards drugs for relief and can make them victims of substance abuse.

I am 52 y Male. For quite sometime I observed I am suffering from short term memory loss, also I am not able to remember names. I have to stress myself to recall names.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.
