Suffering from throat pain. I have smoking habit. But I don't think it's bcoz of it. Please confirm it.
It may be due to smoking. It may not be due to smoking, as you think. But stopping smoking has many health benefits. Do you agree, Mahesh.

Rather than reducing the effects you need to stop smoking as the number of cigarettes are dangerously high. Consult a psychiatrist to reduce craving and get withdrawal treated. All the best.

Memory fades clinically only due to amnesia. Amnesia, for you to be tested with the help of a neurologist. Another reason for momentary memory loss or problem in semantic memory is due to anxiety and allied problems. You need to ascertain this through some memory tests. You can post a direct private question to me on this regard. I am happy to answer your query. God bless you.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person. Earlier I use to study but for few months I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors and appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. I don't like going out. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree ,all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful thing s in life and growing each day and I still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless.

Dear Kajal, I can understand the problems you are facing and the situation you are in. I think it is best for you to consult a good mental health expert in your locality at the earliest. I can suggest a few things here, but considering that your exams are fast approaching, we need to work out a relatively quick and effective solution which may not be possible here.So please do not delay any further as the way you are feeling can be altered making your studies more effective and help you in succeeding in your exams. Take care!

My mood always swings. I can not concentrate on something. I mind keeps running thoughts. What can I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
My mood always swings. I can not concentrate on something. I mind keeps running thoughts.
What can I do?
If these mood swings are really serious you must meet with a counselor and if advised even with a doctor, immediately. For the concentration there may be age-related problems affecting it or it could be due to the mood swings. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

I really want to full concentrate on my college studies & right now I cant concentrate more than 1/2 hour. In exam i'm in tension so I cant right my best! give me tips for my next semester! next semester is next diwali, i'm currently taking medicine!

Hi you are doing good. Human brain can concentrate on one thing only for 40 - 45 minutes and there after concentration degrades. This range differs with individuals, like in your case its 1/2 hr. Quality of time spent in studies is more important than span of time spent. Its good you know your limit, take break every 1/2 hr and make sure you come back to your studies after the planned break. Regarding your tension, (may be anxiousness) we can plan better coping strategies for you in counselling sessions. Also we can discuss smart and sound study methods for effective studies. All the best!

I have been friends with this girl since October 2013. We got so close at that time and she even said that she doesn't want to loose me and would not make such things happen to loose me. That closeness or that bond between us ceased in May 2014. So We never kept in touch till the last week of November 3014. In between that I did call her up to wish her as it was her birthday. She sounded normal. But within that gap (May to November 2014) whenever I tried calling her or tried testing her she would never reply. So in the last week of November I called her with my friend's number because she wouldn't answer my call if I'd call hef with my number. So we spoke on the phone but that bond which was there back then is no longer there. So I tried my best talking to her in order for me to bring the old us. But that didn't really work out. So I told her that I'm coming over to her place to meet her because she's leaving soon for the winter vacations to which she agreed. We met. And when we met I feel like that old bond was still there but it's not upto that point. Since then we've always communicated n kept in touch till date. Her friends even asked me whether I'm in love with her or not so my reply to them was positive. They told me that she knows that I love her and she's happy that I didn't make any proposal yet because she feels like it's good and that wouldn't disturb our studies. Her friends even said that she's into me so why didn't I propose her? And right now I feel like that bond we had back then is pumping again. So to me I really want her to be a part of my life n spend my lifetime with her. But my problem is the proposal part. I don't know where/when/how to start moreover I don't want to loose her ever again. Please help.

You must go for some anger management work to a counselor and only if you have resolved that problem should you call her also into counseling. There is no point trying to get her back without making the change that has been hampering the relationship so far. If she is so good and has all those lovely qualities, then you have gone and messed the relationship up and hopefully not to an irreparable level. It is not enough to have no bad qualities, you must be a satisfying husband and above all, she must be respected for who she is. The first tow years of any marriage is very critical to the future of that relationship and it seems you have already sabotaged it. You will need to start all over again but you will need some professional help and you must seek it fast.

I have anxiety problem. How can I overcome this problem. Please suggest me any medicines.
DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 5 gm of ajwain seeds along with 5 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Need suggestion on family related issue. I am 35 year old working women. Five year back, I got married. It was love marriage with acceptance of both families. Now, I have two kids. We have joint family. My husband is having a brother and a sister and he is the eldest among them. All of them are married and have kids. My husband's sister, her husband and of course their kids used to live with us at our home with his husband and kids. They have allotted a government quarter in the same city.  Earlier, sometimes they used to go to their quarter, but for more than one and half year she has not moved towards her quarter for a single day. After my marriage, initially up to about 2 years I was quite happy to live with them, but the problem arises when she always used to control the each and every house hold things, decision etc. Even she always used to give her advice to me also. Though I am elder than her, I am working, more educated than her, more updated with the technologies. Actually I don't need anyone's free advice, if I need I'll ask to them without any hesitation.   Now, the situation is that almost all the decision (related to house) is by her. Even our cook used to ask her that what and how much is going to be prepared for lunch or dinner. She is everywhere. In our any small celebration, picnic, outings, shopping everything. She is very dominating also. She influence my mother-in-law. Because of her existence my mother-in-law and I have built-up a good relation.  She is main reason of dispute between me and my husband. My in-laws and my husband support her to do everything.  Now, I cannot tolerate her at all. Still after five years of marriage I have found my place in the home. I don't feel that it is my home. At this home, I am happy and can manage with everything, except the presence of them. Sometimes, I feel that I should leave the house with my kids and stay at any rented house.  Still we don't have a single argument yet, and it is just because I never say anything to her and my mother-in-law. My husband all the situation and always appreciate me for being quite. Sometimes he also feel that their presence put many nuisance at our home, but overall he is happy with them, after all she is his sister. I just fed up with all those things, and always be in stress. Please give me good suggestion to solve the problem by not hurting anybody.

Don't panic the more you work out your brain the better you process and remember information. Try to do different activities what makes you happy. Learn to play any instrument, make art, drawing, pottery. Learn dance and another language which you don't know. Try to do brain exercise. Every single activity give your brain extra challenge and want extra effort from you. This will give you a healthy brain which can do anything. And for concentration point a dot on a blank white sheet pointed it on a wall just straight to your eyes while you sit on a chair. And you can try any other concentration exercise daily.

To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault with your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. However, surprisingly, what you perceive is more important than the reality itself. Let me explain: when they ask you to keep quiet, they are essentially saying just adjust. This is not a bad thing but in the repeated demand of this, you will feel of lesser importance. This comparative thing is a form of rejection, even in your parents’ innocence in asking for the adaptation. This is really a silly reason but quite demonstrative. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like she is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also, find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a male child and were disappointed that you were a girl. How long were you breastfed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection if there is any truth. So it is not surprising that so many of your relationships are ending in either you rejecting them or they rejecting you! You need to meet with a counselor and work all this out. At your age this claim of depression is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably.

There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

I hope you are having a relxing sleep at night. Follow simple suggetsions - donot study on the bed, try reading on a chair and table - if you donot mind, try keeping a pen in hand to write down things as notes to be used later on. - when feeling sleepy, revise something you already read. - take a hot water bath before you start studying - take a beak of 20 min after every 40-45 min spell of studying. If this is not working then you might need some medications to keep you focused and awake. Get back to me in that case.
