I am 28 year old Female and Is memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal? What Should I do now?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, great question! memory loss should not be considered as a part of aging. Minimal memory loss occurs normally with age, but if it is creating problems it is certainly abnormal. At age of 28, apparent memory loss is usually related to psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depression rather than neurological problems. The good news is it is completely treatable and reversible. Please consult a psychiatrist!

How to increase our memory or IQ and develop our brain I don't remember anything later when I memories anything even I have this problem with my studies matter can you suggest me something like any exercise or any medicine or foods that develop my brain anything.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Dear lybrate user, please understand certain things first! you are only 21 hence you need not say/think that you are single for a" very long time" 2. Even if you have achieved full sexual growth, this is your age to concentrate more on your studies and career. 3. There has to be some strong reason why you are having sexual feelings towards your mother. May be your father is absent from your life, may be your mother looked at you as her support and crossed her boundaries or she is looking at you for support and loves you a lot and also thinks that you are still a child and is treating you like that. But she may not have any sexual feelings towards you. Please understand that each relation is enjoyable and is healthy only when certain boundaries are maintained. Understand your relation with your mother and maintain your boundaries. You can masturbate to satisfy your sexual needs, but fantasizing sex with your mother will very harmful, emotionally for both of you. Please understand that if you just keep imagining things like this, one day you might do it actually, in the spurt of that moment and then you will carry huge shame, guilt for the rest of your life. Now, it is advisable for you to keep some other women to take care of your mother. You need to stay away from her. Stop sharing the same bed. Spend more time with people of your age and who have similar interests. Try to find a life partner of your age and enjoy life.

1) use natural oils such as coconut, almond etc. To massage gently the scalp for countering hair fall. 2) have more proteins and trace minerals in diet. 3) start taking ayurvedic hair nutrition supplement. 4) keep stress away & take proper 8 hr calm sleep 5) get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated. 6) start 2 spoon cow ghee with milk - empty stomach; will provide you essential nutrition. 7) use soft water to wash your hairs.(alternate day is limit) 8) do regular exercise, yoga, meditation. 9) keep your body cool & calm to avoid hairfall.

Mental Health Stigma

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Mental Health Stigma

Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.
Mental health forms the basis of thinking, communication, learning, resilience, and self-esteem. Mental health is also key to relationships, personal and emotional well-being and contributing to community or society.

Many people who have a mental illness do not want to talk about it. But mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of! it is a medical condition, just like heart disease or diabetes. And mental health conditions are easily treatable with the right kind of treatment.
Mental illness does not discriminate; it can affect anyone regardless of your age, gender, income, social status, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, background or another aspect of cultural identity. Mental illnesses take many forms. Some are fairly mild and only interfere in limited ways with daily life, such as certain phobias (abnormal fears). Other mental health conditions are so severe that a person may need care in a hospital.

I am 4 pregnant but suffering from too much stress. Please show me some exercise which can release the stress.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
I am 4 pregnant but suffering from too much stress. Please  show me some exercise which can release the stress.
Hi, Congratulations. In some ways pregnancy is really a mixed blessing. The excitement and expectation of having a new baby is combined with radical and sometimes difficult changes to a woman’s body, financial concerns, emotional ups and downs, reorganizing rooms for baby, and much more. Reducing stress during pregnancy can help you enjoy this special time. I hope these tips can help! Meditation - Pregnant or not, meditation is a great way to restore calm and is most effective when practised for at least half an hour, and the more often a week, then the better. Obviously, ensuring you get half an hour of undisturbed time can be quite a challenge, particularly if you have other children to care for, but perhaps you can take the chance when they go down for an afternoon nap, when they're settled into bed at night or when your partner takes over for a while. Find somewhere peaceful and quiet, maybe playing soothing music softly if it relaxes you, and then settle into a comfortable position. Start by focusing on your breathing, breathing deeply and slowly and make a conscious effort to release tensions and worries with each exhalation. Once you are settled then you can use any number of meditation techniques: perhaps imagining yourself in a beautiful, relaxing place, slowly developing a mental picture of your perfect restful location, or focusing on your baby, sending it extra oxygen with each breath and thinking positively about meeting your baby and your future life together. You might learn meditation techniques at a pregnancy yoga class, or there are many books with suggestions for meditation themes to try. Pregnancy yoga not only tones and stretches your body, but teaches you breathing, relaxation and meditation techniques. These techniques are good for helping you to control your anxieties. Try to build exercise into your daily life. At work, get up and walk around as often as you can, especially if you are desk-bound. Pop out at lunchtime for some fresh air, even if it's only for 10 minutes. Eat well Eating well is good for your mind as well as your body. A healthy diet of omega-3 essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, can lift your mood. The omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish and seafood may help to reduce depression. Try to have two portions of oily fish, such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, pilchards and trout, a week. It's thought that the essential amino acid tryptophan can boost your mood. Tryptophan helps to raise levels of the brain chemicals melatonin and serotonin. Melatonin and serotonin help you to sleep well and boost your feelings of well-being. Your body can't make tryptophan, so the only way to get it is from what you eat. Tryptophan is found in nuts and seeds, which are easy to snack on, as well as fresh turkey and chicken, fish, eggs, yoghurt and cheese. Keep an eye on how much water you're drinking, as dehydration may affect your mood. Dehydration can also make you more prone to headaches. Aim for six to eight glasses (about 1.5 litres) of fluid a day. Spa therapy - Going for spa treatments works on several levels to relax and de-stress you. First and foremost the treatments are specifically designed to ease both body and mind using water, massage, aromatherapy, music and a restful atmosphere. Secondly the very fact that you're taking time out to focus purely on yourself should perk you up. You'll need to make sure that whatever treatment you opt for is safe for pregnant women: saunas, hot tubs and steam rooms are out, along with the use of some aromatherapy oils and certain kinds of massage in early pregnancy. But even when you can't have a full massage in the early months of pregnancy, you can still reap the benefits of head, shoulder, arm, hand, leg and foot massage. And then there's still facials, manicures, and pedicures to give you a well-deserved boost. All the best.

Hi my friend it is not due to aging. You are young. I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to get original ones. Mix 4 drops of water violet + 4 drops of impatiens + 4 drops of chicory + 4 drops of mimulus + 2 drops of agrimony. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink once daily before sleeping.

If all this is leading to a life-threatening situation, you can both inform your parents that the choice they have left you with is that you will be dead if not allowed to marry and alive if allowed. Let them know the seriousness of the situation. In the meantime do not do anything silly: life is extremely precious and nobody is worth dying for. So think logically that even if they still do not agree, it is not the end of the world. If you two truly love each other, you can both refuse the proposals brought by your parents until you are allowed to marry. But both must be on the same page.

Hi, What is your age? Are you working or studying? From your description it feels that you procrastinate to get things done, then they pile up and you have a tendency to jump to worst conclusion in a single leap like " ?I?m a mess, I?ll never have enough time to study for this exam an I am going to fail". Is it the case with you? Organizing and prioritizing helps when everything looks like a mess. After you prioritize pick one thing @ a time..get it done and move to next. Little accomplishments shall boost your confidence gradually. To help you more we need to chalk down problem areas and specific ways to deal with them. Kindly come back with answers.

You are not depressed, but disappointed. You could consult a family counselor for a few counseling sessions instead of worrying. Talk to your wife, iron out the differences, talk to her parents, relatives etc and find a solution.

Hi, I am very depressed from last 4-5 months and even taken medicines for stress and depression as well. It was ok for some time when i took one month break but after joining the work it again started, I am thinking so much negative and always think to quit job and sit idle or change the carrier where there is less pressure. I don't know, very confused in the life now. Please advice. Thanks.

You better consult a good homoeopath for this. Because depressed patients need to be cured as a person.Not as a patient to the doctor.This may happen to you may be because of you may not be able to handle loads of work together.Or may be another reason.

I am always feeling unreal and forgetting things very often. What may be the disease?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I hope I am wrong that your use of the word ?unreal? is meant to be understood as difficulty facing life than something more sinister. If, on the other hand, you mean that you are disconnected from the world around you and you feel that you don?t belong to your surroundings, you could be looking at something serious. In that case you must take your parents and visit a counselor first and on that person?s recommendations you could be asked to meet with a doctor. I don?t know how long this has been going on but do not delay and the earlier it is dealt with the better for you. When symptoms like this appear in early adolescence, it could mean something more serious. Equally encouraging is that the earlier it is treated; the changes can be better and permanent.

This is because you have been encouraged to always smile even if you wanted to cry. This has now become your pattern and is uncomfortable now. Counselling can help you to respond to different situations with the appropriate emotion and also weigh the pros and cons of your actions if you are not smiling always.
