My roommates complaints that I used to speak at night suddenly for two to three minutes. Last night, they complained that I was laughing very loud while sleeping with my hands opened and I was jumping on bed. This is not usual as I don't have this problem previously. Moreover, I don't have dreams on that night too. I think this problem is related to my psycology.

I can see the problem. We usually do not have body movements happening nocturnally. Therefore there is no treatment for this. To get sound sleep, be stress free and work physically well. Drinking a glass of milk before sleep can also help. Take care.

Your age is very low to talk of depression. You need to get out of this low feeling. Please try to imagine how would the person you lost would have liked to see you- definitely not in your present state. Try to be the person your lost one wanted you to be. That will be your inspiration and guidance to walk the right way. Best of luck.

Epilepsy is a disorder in what ch a person has a tendency to have recurrent fits and convulsions. In most of the longstanding cases of epilepsy it is idiopathic, that is without any apparent cause. It usually occurs due to uncontrolled electrical activity of brain neurons. In some instances fit smay occur after head injuries, bleeds in brain, infections, electrolyte imbalance, lowered sugars etc. Epilepsy needs management with regular use of medications so as to control recurrent fits. This has to be an individualised treatment. Certain provocative factors like inadequate sleep, physical exhaustion, decreased oxygen in air, fasting, loud noise, scorching sun etc may precipitate fits in a known case of epilepsy. So it is advisable to refrain from such factors. For any further queries or assistance you may consult me online

Alzheimer's is a neuro-degenerative disease in which the size of the brain cells decreases and leads to problems in thinking and memory. As far as management of this condition is concerned, it is not a one time process. It is a long term process, however somethings that you can control are, make sure he is not smoking, if he is, engage him into tobacco cessation counselling. Make sure he is taking a healthy and a balanced diet and get him involved in some sort of physical exercise after consulting your physician. Get his routine tests done on to rule out hypertenstion, diabetes and high cholesterol levels that aggravates the condition. You can always stay in touch to keep me posted about his condition and progress. If still the condition deteriorates, please visit a psychiatirst.

Aftr gaining much weights ma boyfriend started to avoid me. M vry much depress. please help.
Hello, it's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! but would advise you that if your boy friend gets attracted towards you on your physical presentation then better not to go along with him as he doesn't love you, it's more of physical attraction only! when a person really loves you, he loves you as a person, he loves you the way you look, he loves you with your all odd and even! that's the genuine love which comes from the heart and ready to sacrifice many things for you. So, dear I am making you aware, be careful! go through the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: management: 1: drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: enjoy your favorite foods. 4: have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous). Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. Preferably brisk walking, swimming, cycling, skipping. 6: eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: don't skip meals. When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. 13: go for a health walk. Gear up yourself daily for a health walk which not only shed off your extra calorie, but also reduces the stress levels. 14: take small frequent breaks for a quick walk in between as sitting for long hours together encourages the accumulation of fat in the body! medication: start taking schwabe's phytolacca berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 3 months. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best! weight red.

hi, I would suggest you to read the information about house lizard. It is harmless creature but as it looks awful and as it may fall on us so we tend to get scared of it. Try systematic desensitization... slowly expose yourself to lizard..first from a distance and then reduce the distance slowly. when you go near it you will find that the poor lizard is scared of you... :)

Hi. I' m a mother of a 1 year 5 month old daughter. She' s very cheerful and active. But one thing that is worrying all of us these days is that she' s not well attached to her dad. My husband feels very odd because of this. As and when she looks at him, she tightens her face and that shakes her face and fists. And she runs away whenever he tries to engage sometime with her. My husband is a very caring and loving father. But only that due to his work timings he doesn' t get much time to spend with her. But how can one fix this kind of issue? please help.

Dear . Your daughter is very young to understand anything more than simple caregiving and nurturing. She is more attached to those who are caring and nurturing. She soes not possess any other emotional feelings. Stranger anxiety is another prominent feature at thos age. Your husband may be loving, but that love and care should be shown to baby in such a manner where the child feels it as caring and affectionate. If required, I may provide telephone counseling to you and your husband. Take care.

Sorry to hear about your friend. He will need to be evaluated by a Psychiatrist and possibly admitted for physician assisted withdrawal, which in every day language means Detoxification from the substances he's addicted to. Please do not delay things since the matter needs urgent attention.

Sir. I am addicted to smoke too much. And Now I am suffering from cold and cough ver much. .so sir what can I do now?
Dear lybrate-user, Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud. All the best.

Hi I am expecting, but I dont have any excitement about it, my career is not on the track thats y I dont want to take baby right now, but my hubby wants. What should I have to do now?

If your heart is not into this pregnancy, you may affect the unborn child. It is not your husband? s wish alone, you also must want that child and convey that to it in your feelings, attitude, and taking care of yourself. In fact it is necessary for that child to feel your love. Job and career will come later. Pregnancy is a blessing, and if it an unwanted child the effects will start showing on that child. Get excited, learn all about child rearing and get some special information from your gynecologist to foster good feelings. I don? t know your age but the earlier you get a child the better. Every thought and feeling that you go through is communicated to the child and that child must feel wanted and awaited with all the excitement possible. That is your responsibility.

I am suffering from the habit of can notinues smoking pls consult me any prevention for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is 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 do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your 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 yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You 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. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself 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 announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

My sister is a drug addict what should I do now to stop her from having drugs and all these things.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to admit your sister into a rehabilitation program for at least 6 months to cure her of this addiction. If she has had mental problems too then she may require psychiatric care as well. Even after rehabilitation she must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. She will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. She must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. She must again persevere and fight this battle until she comes out victorious. The family members and medical fraternity must be there for her right through this recovery. She will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over. The worse is if she is not yet ready and willing you will most likely fight a losing battle. But keep trying until you succeed.

It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

Hw to increase our memory. Actually I forget almost all things and it irritates me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

Dear Sir, I am 32 years old and working in a company. For the past few months I am facing an issue related to remembering name of people (both india as well as foreign nationals). I need to understand if its normal or progression towards some kind of disease.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
We have a peculiar situation in India, and I suppose some other nationalities may suffer a similar problem, especially with names. In the culture that one is brought up, names that are the norm here (like Shivaramakrishnan) are tongue-twisters for a western man. This is not some kind of disease but the dialect you are familiar to is more easily remembered. But because we are exposed to two or more types of names from different dialects, we will tend to struggle to remember because of the mental gymnastics involved. That will be some of the effect in your case, where we are so inclined to think in one language and convert it into another before articulating it, let alone remembering it. You may however have some problem if you struggle too much; then you are advised to write these names down and learn to memorize them by association with other easily remembered events, occasions etc. to be able to commit them to a permanent memory bank. You can do it by sparing a little effort, and over time the enigma would become simplified and you need not feel like you are suffering from any disease at all.

Dear friend, when one takes alcohol regularly, one does so to get a high but one should realize the everything is a combination of polar opposites. One dosen't realize that the high in the night is the reason for the low in the morning and it is directly proportional to its intensity. So you are kind of trapped and you fail to assess that the high is bringing a demand of another high and low as an outcome! place a big picture of fatty liver, in the room you often take alcohol in. Everyday look at it and chuck it out when you feel, enough is enough.
