Can Mood Changes Be A Symptom Of Dementia?

Can Mood Changes Be A Symptom Of Dementia?

Dementia is a disorder characterized by a decline in mental capabilities in a person. It is primarily caused by Alzheimer's disease but can also be caused by damage to the brain from an injury or a stroke. The cells of the brain fail to communicate with each other in dementia. People suffering from dementia have difficulties in taking part in regular activities as their mental functioning is impaired.

The major symptoms of dementia are problems in recalling, ineffective communication, inability to concentrate and impaired reasoning abilities. It may also affect the short-term memory of a person when he/she may be unable to keep track of his/her belongings. Dementia can be progressive where the symptoms gradually increase with age.

Some early symptoms of dementia are-

1. Mood changes - Excessive mood swings along with changes in personality are very common symptoms of dementia. For instance- a reserved person suddenly becoming very outgoing is a commonly observed change in cases of dementia.

2. Problems in completing routine tasks - If a person suddenly starts to face problems in doing routine work such as maintaining simple accounts and paying bills then it can early signs of dementia.

3. Confusion - When a person starts to get confused in remembering small details and recognizing faces, it could point towards dementia.

4. Repetition - Dementia causes people to repeat words they have just said as the short term memory gets impaired. It also causes people to repeat small tasks a multiple number of times.

5. Losing interest - A person may start to lose interest in regular activities and avoid them altogether. They may appear devoid of emotions and not engage socially.

6. Communication - People fail to communicate effectively as they may be unable to express their thoughts clearly. They may also fail to understand when others communicate with them.

7. Impaired sense of direction - A person may fail to recognize places and wander around. He/she will face problems in going to places or in remembering places. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Dear, from the given details, it is not possible to diagnose his problems. But from the feel of it, it seems he is having some psychological disorder. Possibly impulse disorder coming under the spectrum of ocd. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I think he could do well with mobile based counseling. I am happy to help you. Take care.

Hi My son 14+ age class-x can' t study absolutely except math mobile Tv addicted. what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don' t fully understand your problem but let me see what I have understood and answer accordingly. He is going through his adolescence. He is expected to have problems with concentration, will get distracted very easily, will be very suggestive to his peers only and will love the entertainment media, if it has to do with adult, forbidden things, in particular. You need to treat him like a friend, sometimes like a child when he wants it so, and many times like an adult. He is obviously confused about these roles and so will you be? he is confused transcending from childhood to adulthood. Most times, we parents, still treating them like? our? little children, tend to come down harsh on them with heavy disciplining etc. This will not work and may only invite rebellion and aggression. You must ally with him; make him feel that you understand his thinking, needs and values. In a very subtle and gradual manner you can succeed to push in a few of your concerns and tell him in a palatable manner what is the best things you would like him to do? but make it feel like it is his idea. You need to be very careful, because some of them can rebel by doing some drastic thing (to themselves or to others) just to spite you. Keep in constant communication with your teen. In some things you can restrict the use of tv and mobile phone, subject to some compliance to study time or work responsibility in the house etc. But again be careful how you go about it. All of you must be on the same page when dealing with him. Any discord between you and your wife, he will exploit it or use it to play games. Remember it is his life and he is at a very critical juncture. You don? t want to do something that might have a permanent negative bearing on his life. In all this never, ever let him feel, even remotely, rejected.

I am mentally stressed last 1 year. Now I have tachycardia. How does tachycardia effect brain?

Dear lybrate-user. Tachycardia do not directly affect brain. Brain could be affected due to stress and anxiety associated with tachycardia. I think your tachycardia is due to stress and anxiety. 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. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness 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 counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. For any student doing any professional courses, should get at least 6 hours of sleep every day. They should also get one hour physical exercise and one hour of entertainment. This way, their brain will always be active and creative. Take care.

I presently smoke about over a pack of cigarettes per day. Work odd hours 7 pm to 4 PM. I know its affecting my health. Need to know if there are medicines that can help quit smoking. If yes are there any known side effects.

Dear, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

Sir I am a male 15 years old , how to strengthen our mind to overcome exams and stress.
Strengthening mind and dealing with stress is a process. There is no formula as to strengthen mind and drive away stress. Stress is omnipresent, and you have to acknowledge its presence, learn ways to use it to your benefits and deal with it effectively by training your mind almost everyday. One such effective way is by learning the relaxation response. You can start by practicing ways of relaxation like deep breathing exercises, yoga, mediation etc. Consult a stress management expert or a psychiatrist in your vicinity personally.

Dear user, I can understand. The best treatment is to have psychiatric help. Counseling and motivation therapy. For all these you should consult a psychiatric facility. You may request a psychologist to come home and treat your husband. Online counseling may also work sometimes. Take care.

I am 58 and passing through much depression due to my unforeseen problem i: e financial, professional,
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.
