I want to concentrate my mind on one thing. But I m unable. How can I concentrate mind?

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes at your age can also affect your thinking and concentration capabilities for some time. However if you are suffering from an excessive degree of concentration problem then you should consult an expert. There are certain psychological conditions that cause concentration problems too, like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), bipolar disorder (bpd).

I have been suffering from mental stress and sleeping problem please give me suggestion.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I have been suffering from mental stress and sleeping problem please give me suggestion.
STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive If you need any prescription please consult me as we cannot prescribe in questions session. Regards

Better to consult psychiatrist for medication along with medication. It is better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. Medicine will not work alone medicine work internally. But externally you have a need to change your thought process. If you come normal stage. Then continue with psychologist. You need to change your life style modification. Psychologist conduct cognitive behaviour modification therapy and some relaxation therapies do not sit alone. Do not think too much about the one aspect continuously. Better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. No problem you will come soon from this problem. But be strictly follow the psychologist suggestions to change your complete thought process. Ok all the best.

My memory is deteriorating. Pls suggest me effective solution as soon as possible so I can concentrate for my final exam.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food items 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, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

From the last 6 days, I have been facing breathing issues. It has become hard to breathe like the shortness of breath or like I have a feeling I can't breathe and this happens the most when I wear a t-shirt which is tight on the chest, sit on a chair, stand and it becomes normal when I move, do something, lie in the bed, eat. Once in a day I feel a pinch pain on left chest as well but that is not the major one. I don't smoke, not much exposed to air pollution. Are these the symptoms of COPD? I have been suffering from anxiety, stress, career pressure etc. Are the above symptoms related to the on-going anxiety? In 2013, almost 2.5 years ago, I took 70 tablets of clenbuterol by Asia Pharma over a period of 2 months for its unofficial use of reducing weight and during that dosage I had muscle cramps in left chest. Are the above symptoms the side effects of clenbuterol? Can that dosage still have effect on me? How can I ensure that they didn't have effect on me, any test? After leaving clenbuterol I lost the weight more than I expected and my cheeks had sunken and before that I had chubby cheeks. Now I am normal but my cheeks are still sunken. One doctor me to take Alfalfa syrup German in homeopathy to get rid of sunken cheeks, shall I take that? What are the above symptoms all about? COPD or stress or side effect of clenbuterol? How can I ensure that clenbuterol had no effect on me?

Clenbuterol hydrochloride is a powerful bronchodilator that is used to treat breathing disorders like asthma and taking it in 2013 has no effect now and your problem is over anxiety and and you need antidepressant or anxiety medication.

How to talk to youngsters who go into depression due to breakup of a relationship
Or not able to cope with day to day...
They need to be told that these are trial relationships and not to take them too seriously. They become too possessive and then when it becomes too stifling for the other person who will eventually want out, the losing partner dispairs. They need to learn lessons from every relationship to take int the future. If they do not learn, they will tend to repeat the same mistakes. They must be taught how to deal with a failed relationship especially about their feelings and some left over bad experiences. If they do not do this, they will carry baggage and affect the next relationship. Sometimes, you can help them identify if they are actually favoring the parent of the opposite sex when choosing a person and see how that ties up with unresolved sexual identity and resolve the same. Then the usual about not carrying bad experiences and affecting their own lives, socializing more, not taking anything too personally, not bad-mouthing the other person after the breakup, not to jump into another relationship too soon after the breakup, etc.

My friend 29 years old male has taken 50avil tabs and after few minutes he vomited, got seizures for 5 minutes. He was admitted in ICU and had fever, hallucination problem. Later after 5 days he was discharged but still he has memory issues in remembering passwords and things. Is anything serious with him now.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
There are multiple issues to be addressed here. Firstly, the reasoning behind taking 50 tablets of avil is of significant concern. It is a sign that there is something seriously problematic, which he is dealing with by taking such a drastic step. Secondly, having seizures and what seems like delirium. The primary focus should be on his physical condition first, and then on his mental/emotional condition. He will require regular follow up with his treating physician as well as an opinion by a psychiatrist. This is a serious situation, and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Persons who attempt suicide are more likely to try it again and he needs to be assessed for the same. There is also a possibility of brain damage caused by taking any medication in excess, which needs to be taken into consideration.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Apart from what Dr. Akshata Bhat has advised, assess your self, how much you are preoccupied with dusting off the sofa. What will happen if you do NOT dust the sofa? Some of the dusting obsessions may be helpful. They may be a trait in you. It may NOT be a disorder. So do NOT diagnose yourself. Take a consultation with a psychiatrist.
