Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I suspect that you have made a slight blunder that may be the cause of this despair. You must go for career guidance tests and also an aptitude test. These will determine what you are made for and tailor your skills set to the most desirable career. The career guidance counselor will then help with several professional options and match your favorite subjects that suit a particular course to be pursued. You are so young that mistakes can be easily and quickly rectified. Why trouble yourself and get into a depression when these matters can be sorted out in style. Cheer up and take your world by storm. There is so much waiting for you to do. In the meantime do regular exercise, eat well and get adequate sleep every day. Do not withdraw, and meet people in activity oriented settings so that mixing with them will be a whole lot comfortable. But do go through a little discomfort in the beginning, and in time it will ease up considerably. Keep me posted about your progress.

Neurologist,
Parkinson's disease-kampavata (a neurological disorder) parkinson's disease is a neurological disease, or brain disorder, that leads to progressive difficulty with balance and coordination. In people who have parkinson's disease, nerve cells in a region of the brain known as the substantia nigra become damaged or die. These cells are important because they produce the chemical dopamine, which helps to coordinate body movement-basal ganglia. When dopamine-producing cells degenerate/die, the areas in the brain that control movement can no longer function properly, and symptoms of parkinson's disease eventually develop. Parkinson? s disease prevalence:- parkinson's disease can affect anyone, but it most often occurs in people who are over the age of 50. Only 15 percent of parkinson's disease patients are diagnosed before they are 50 years old. The prevalence of parkinson's disease is nearly the same in both men and women, and recovery rate is more in men. People with a family history of parkinson's may have a higher risk of developing the disease, but parkinson's disease is rarely attributed to genetics alone. Parkinson's disease symptoms symptoms of parkinson's disease usually develop after about 80 percent of the brain's dopamine-producing cells are lost. The main symptoms of parkinson's disease include? tremors (kampam)- tremulousness (uncontrolled shaking or trembling) of the hands, arms, legs, face, body is often one of the first indicators of parkinson's disease? rigidity. Profound stiffness or an inability to easily move the arms, legs, and trunk, pain and stiffness on neck muscles is another hallmark of parkinson's? bradykinesia:- describes the unnaturally slow movements that are characteristic of people with parkinson's disease? poor balance- parkinson's disease affects balance, leading to difficulty walking and impaired coordination. The symptoms of parkinson's are generally mild at first, but become more severe over time, until they eventually interfere with your daily routine. This is usually the point when treatment is recommended. The outlook for people with parkinson's disease parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive condition, which means it is a lifelong disease that worsens over time when it is not treated properly. Each individual's situation is different, but in general, the first symptoms of parkinson's disease usually don't require treatment and may be restricted to one area or one side of the body. Movement of symptoms to the other side of the body? tremors that become more pronounced and interfere with activities? bradykinesia, or slow movement, that becomes disabling? difficulty with hand writing? impaired swallowing and chewing? speech that becomes monotone? poor balance and repeated falls? slow, shuffling gait (manner of walking)? stooped posture? facial expressions that become stiff and blank? chronic constipation? poor bladder control? sleep disturbances this progression is gradual in most people, but it may happen faster in some than others. Understandably, stress caused by the progression of the disease can lead to anxiety and depression. Ayurveda treatment: there is cure for parkinson's disease with ayurveda treatment, with ayurveda medicines and treatments we can relieve symptoms, slow down the progression and then we can completely arrest further degeneration of the of the cells, thereby we can completely control and cure the disease. If you are diagnosed with parkinson's disease, it is important to work closely with your medical team, so your medications can be regularly adjusted to help you remain as functional as possible for as long as possible. As far as parkinson's disease is concerned this is a brain related issue, so will surely effect the mind; so I recommend 49% treatment to patients and 51% treatment to family members.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

148/98 at this age is a warning sign. Please rule out any blood sugar and blood lipid abnormalities. The best diet modification is avoiding salt. Totally. Not even the regular that you use in curry and roti and dal and etc. Totally avoid pickles and papad. And never never add salt in pre cooked items.

When I want to talk to my mom who lives in london sometimes my voice will not come?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When I want to talk to my mom who lives in london sometimes my        voice will not come?
There is some fear that comes up that is crippling you to kind of loose your voice. Can you identify what that fear is all about? how has your relationship with her been for all of these years? why is she in london? if you have been too close to her and have not broken out of that closeness in a healthy manner, you are likely to have feelings in that separation: it is called separation anxiety. I recommend that you meet with a female counselor and deal with the feelings that are disturbing you. I see this as a purely emotional disturbance and it can be sorted out quite reasonably. If your mom has been a strict person and has curbed any intimacy, there can be this type of reaction too. It can get further complicated if your father has any kind of role to play in all this too. Please explore all of these possibilities with the counselor and regain your confidence in talking to mom: she is after all your own mom and there should be no inhibitions in that relationship ever. She is and was your primary caretaker and that relationship should always be easy and smooth.

I am having pain in calf in leg from last 2 years and now from last 1 year I am having pain in my hand and lower back also and now the pain turn into burning and numbness. Done all diagnosis but all are ok and not able to find out the cause of pain.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Have you got your Vitamin D levels, serum uric acid, serum vitamin B12 levels and sugar done, if not they should be done too. Besides the pain in the leg may be due to a nerve compression in the back, that will have to be evaluated clinically and you may need an MRI of the spine if that is the case.

It is not mandatory to take vitamin supplements with fluoxetine. It is helpful in all types of depression but in psychotic depression it is advisable to use it along with some atypical dopamine antagonists. For more details or queries you may consult me online.

Having a non relaxing sleep, feeling stressed, tired whole day, easy fatiguability are signs of untreated depressive disorder. You need to get some investigations done to rule out possible causes of depression like hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiencies etc. Depression like any other illness is treatable with medications and counseling.

Dear Lybrate user long term usage of psychological medicines definitely impact your mind and body. But you should consult psychiatric before increasing and decreasing the dose. Plus it's important along with these medicines you must avail psychotherapy from a clinical psychologist. The therapy will help you change your negative thought and behavior pattern. Best wishes.
