I have a problem is, I'm getting more angry easily, suppose what I'm saying if they are not following meas its disappointing more to me. I want to handle this situation frequently. Any possibility is there for cure this problem.
I am 17 years old and know from some days I have got forgetting something specially reading matter than please help me sir.
Tell me some reasons due to which memory of a person is effected and also some precautions about it.
I have been told I suffer from OCD which is resistant to medicines. That means medicines won't help me. What do I do? When I started medicines for OCD I was told I have to take them for only 6 months but now it's more than 10 years and I still am told to take medicines. I wonder if they aren't curing me why should I take them? At present I take Serta (100) 1-0-2; Axepta (25) 1-0-0; Zapiz (0.5) 1-1-1; Fluanxol (0.5) 1-1-1; Amitone (25) 1-1-0. Inspite of all these I wash hands too much. Skin on my hands hurts. Also I have been told these medicine have side-effects and they can harm liver & kidneys in the long run. Is there any way to live without medicines and also get rid of OCD?
Sir please tell me why I cannot concentrate on study but I try it but different thing come into mind and distract me.
I have lost my father last modified month and now I am feeling very bad can you please help what should I do?
Sir/madam I feel uncomfortable while I am in front of a lot of people. Especially when attending functions etc. I prefer not to go for such functions and I can't (or I don't want to socialise with people). I prefer staying at my home rather than any other place. I feel a lot of mental stress while I think I am being noticed by people. Its like a lot of tension is developing in me. Can you tell what is my exact problem?
Questions to ask when making a decision
1. What is holding me back from going ahead and making the decision?
2. What is my biggest fear?
3. What will my life be like if things turn out badly?
4. What will my life be like if things go exactly as I hope?
5. Who else is affected by my decision, and what are their thoughts and feelings?
6. How important are their thoughts and feelings?
7. Is there any other information I need, or facts that are important, for making the decision?
8. What would make the decision easier?
9. Can I test the water first, or take a few small steps?
10. How will I feel 10 years from now; if I say yes or if I say no?
Are these the symptoms of depression if I cry all the time over petty issues and feel very insecure and sad?
Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.
Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.
- Repeated seizures
- Impaired memory
- Bouts of fainting
- Short spans of blackout
- Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
- Inappropriate repetitive movements
Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.
There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.
- Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
- Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
- Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.
- Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
- Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.
Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:
- Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily
- Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc.
- Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy
- Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe
- Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurologist.
