Hloo I am losing my memory may I know the reason why I can't remember in exams please help. Me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You feel lack of memory because of tension and overload of studies and lack of proper study pattern. Please follow these steps. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

What you are experiencing is very common after a profound loss of life. The feeling that your gm is still present around will last for a few days or weeks. You will get over this feeling. No there are no souls or ghosts. It shows that you loved her very much and are missing her.

Dear lybrate-user. Don't worry. You will be alright once the exams are over. This is exam stress. This happened due to your own negative thinking. Just take it cool and don't worry more about exams. Take care.

My son is quite slow in his reactions, I mean to say whenever I teach him his study materials he take a lot more time compared to other students. The amount of effort which he had to put even to do a simple problem is done by his classmates quite effortlessly. He is also quite slow in his day to day works like eating, bathing, playing and so on. He always seems to be lethargic and drooping. If there is any remedy for him in homeopathy or ayurved please advice.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Have you had a clinical assessment for him yet? it will help to rule out any underlying developmental delays or psychological reasons for slowness, lethargy and droopiness. If reports are normal, then I suggest that you treat your child as an individual and unique in himself. Don't compare him with his friends because you will hurt his self confidence and self esteem. Recognise his effforts and praise him for it. Slowly encourage him to do better but if that is his level, then so be it. Try to find out his other strengths because everyone is intelligent in one or the other area of spatial, body kinesthetic, music, language, logic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalist. If you can figure this one out and hone his skills in this area and encourage it then he will still make a name and earn a good living for himself.

Hi I am suffering from not getting sleep from last 8 months, full depression, stress. Please guide me which medicine I can take to come out of thing and fast recovery from these problems. Thanks.

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Your sleeplessness could be due to uncontrolled bp, glucose levels or even the tablets you are taking. Atorsave can cause depression in some people. Why are you taking 40mg of atorsave. If you have any blood clot problems to your brain, the that could be the cause of your sleep and depression as well. Visit a psychiatrist.

Good that you are trying to control your thyroid level. U can still try to lower it by achieving healthy and balanced lifestyle. Try to include some physical activity in your day. Try to schedule your food, sleep and exercise. This will.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

How can I concentrate any work, since I always refuses to complete it. Why it so?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or.

I'm a 23 year male. I was good in my studies at school level. Gradually it decreased. I've never took my studies seriously, I had a confidence that even if I study a week before exams, I'd pass. During my graduation I had a breakup and to come out of it wasn't easy for me. I can't explain it in this mail but every day was like hell to me, I couldn't sleep, eat properly and what not. Slowly I've started getting out of my self pity thoughts. In these situations I thought that I wouldn't pass my xams but somehow I did. After that I've done a course but I didn't had enough confidence in me, by that time I was different than what I was in my early days. I could hardly remember or understand the concept. I couldn't think creatively, so I thought to go for another course, now i've completed that but same again. I'm out of my confidence, cannot concentrate on anything, after failing in an interview I thought that at least from now I'll prepare again but I can't even start a thing. My job profile needs creative thinking, but I cannot even think normally. Some times I feel my cognitive functions aren't normal. What should I do to get out of my situation? I need to improve the functioning of my brain. I should have confidence, passion. Should I consult a psychiatrist? Please someone suggest me a detailed answer.

lybrate-user, you began by telling about your problems with studies and how your grades/marks have lowered in recent years since you completed schooling. As I can see, much of your concerns are about how your abilities and thinking are not matching upto your expectations. You have taken different courses and did your best to keep yourself confident but it hasn't helped you much. You seem to be having greater worries about how you think and why your thoughts are not focused on any particular goal. A bad experience in a relationship also added up to your worries and distressing mental condition. A relationship usually distracts and preoccupies with attachment issues which makes life difficult to handle. These long series of negative events and circumstances have reduced your overall motivation and lead to a distressing mental state where you constantly worry about your abilities. From a clinical perspective, it would not be possible to make any valid diagnosis as of now. For that more interviewing is needed and clinical tests need to be done (psychological assessments). Many times due to repeated failures, we develop a negative attitude towards ourselves and remain in a constant state of depressed mood and low energy. In your situation, it seems you do require medical consultation. But medicines won't help you for long and may not alleviate all the problems. Negative thinking develops over time and mostly it is not a direct effect of one or two circumstances. Low confidence, self-pity thoughts, poor concentration, low motivation, lack of energy and low self esteem are some of the persistent effects of negative thought process. You also believe that you may not be having normal cognitive functions. You seem to over-think about your performance, which is impacting your life achievements. Negative thoughts result from negative beliefs about self. When we think we are unworthy then we lose the confidence to take initiatives and get biased towards seeing all negative outcomes. We don't welcome any new changes in our life cheerfully. This has happened with you that with every new goal you have set for yourself, you have gradually become hopeless with that achievement. This is mainly because you don't feel much confident towards yourself. Deep into your mind, you believe you don't deserve a positive outcome. We can say that you think in a very black-and-white mode of thought process. This implies that either things should be all good for you or all bad. There is no mid-way for you currently. You are achieving some things in your life but you don't see them as worthy to change your life altogether. Here comes the importance of understanding your own thoughts and beliefs. It is important for you to know how your long held beliefs about yourself have impacted your mental state. It is not entirely some brain chemical which is causing this distress. Body is equally effected by how we think, than being just the other way around. So for temporary benefits, you may take medicines. But for long term relief and cure, you need to see a Clinical Psychologist and take Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) which is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is a very effective therapy for long term benefits from depression and anxiety. All the Best.

Dear , dreams are brain unconscious processes. You hardly have any control over them. Dreams could be related to past also. If you are able to explain your dream in detail, we will be able to do" dream analysis" and tell you what it means. To avoid dreams, you should work physically hard and sleep soundly. Take care.

Most likely it is due to duvanta (duloxetine) you are taking which is not 1st line of choice for GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder). Did you discuss these erectil problems with your psychiatrist, I am surprised this medicne was chosen, if you have not, discuss now. There are many medicines which control the anxiety symtpoms very well without your erection being compromised. All the best.
