Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

I am 18 years old. I have become sleep deprived for over 7 months. I am unable to concentrate on my studies. It's affecting my health as well. Can someone please help me get rid of this problem:(

MSc, PGDGC

Hi, what causes not to sleep on daily basis, check whether you take some medication without Dr. Prescription, or any depression, or any physical injuries. You have sleep in same timing like 9 to 10 pm without giving any excuse. Take your supper before 7.30 pm try warm milk before bed, read any solid boring books like history or other subjects, which you feel boring, do deep breathing very slowly for 5 mins, do count from 100 to 1 with full concentration on numbers. Wake up at 5.30 pm. Do 45 mins exercise, never sleep or nap in the afternoon, be positive that you will get sleep. Tell to yourself consciously that you are getting sleep. Do all the above for 21 days with any break. If the above suggestions are not working out, don't sleep for whole night as well as day. You will sure get the sleep on the next day night.

I am feeling depressed for my study pressure n even I need to get a job. I am suffering in insomnia. Please help me.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
I can understand how disturbing an interuppted, inappropriate or disturbed sleep can affect your day to day life. In india it has been found 55% of patients are suffering from insomnia just because of stress, distractions and anxiety. So the best way to get rid from insomnia is to reduce the stress level. A physiotherapist can help you to give you the ways to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full sleep. Consult some neurologist/neuropyschiatric and start taking medicine if it is due to some neurological discorder. And consult nearby physio who can make a perfect routine and daily life styl chart to make you relax so that you get an appropriate sleep. Please follow some points that will help you in such condition along with medical treatment: 1) use of ice packs over your eyes or frontal area for some time to give relaxation. 2) massage your head especially forehead area using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body 3) regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. 4) avoid fasting - eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings 5) make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. 6) before sleeping time do some relaxation exercises. - sit on chair with both the hands placed on the pillow placed over thighs. - deep inhale from your nose, mouth should be closed. - hold your breath for the count of 5. - exhale completely from mouth making a loud sound. Continue to do this exercise for 10 times. Before going to bed make a habit of doing this daily. Modified technique of same exercise is while inhaling extend your arms, hold for 5 count and then exhale making your arms back in the rest position. 7) room modification while sleep - make sure room should be dark with no noise. Avoid sleeping immediately after dinner or food. Take a walk for 15 min and then come back, bed should be not too soft not too hard. 8) it is recommended to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. It is also a very good habit to start and finish your day by drinking a good glass of purifying water. 9) exerices like aerobics (running) can be done to make your muscles active. Many other ways are there in order to maintain your life stress free and active so that you can continue to sleep on time and it does affect your life. Good luck and get well soon.

Hello, thanks for the query. Bhang (known as cannabis in medical science terms) is known to cause panic attacks, states like psychosis, depression (which is quite matching your description here) in young people (18-24 years age) so now you need to stay away from any kind of addiction to get better. Also, to give you right medications to improve your health, please tell me following; how is your mood, sleep, appetite? are you able to enjoy outing with friends, movies etc? are you able to concentrate on your work/studies? kindly provide this information so that I can reach a definite conclusion & help you get relief. Good luck.

I am 28 year female. I have been in relationship with a guy for 3years I got pregnant 2times mistakenly. Last I used tablets misoprost. I used as per instructions but I was 4-5months pregnant already baby was abort but some clumps and wastage was stuck which took me to hospital for internal wash. Now it's almost last year August thing but still I'm in emotional trauma. I M living alone. I felt bad about baby. I regret and I feel suicidal sometime. I need medical help to come out of this. I lost my baby. even after this. Because I was blaming him for all this happened.

It is normal to feel greef. After what you have gone through. In your emotional moment you may blame your partner and inam sure you know that it is not just him. It was both of you. What happend happend and now it is past. We can't do anything about what is gone. What lies ahead is your future. How would you now want to move ahead. Focus on your plan for your future. Always remember that you are in charge of your life. Many times we get influenced by stories and movies and keep building our emotions around them. Think about the other circumstances as well. What would have happend if you had a baby. Are you ready to deal with all that would have come with it? you might be depressed thinking and feeling other things. Always remember that your life and your happiness is your choice. Focus on how to build happy and fulfilling life ahead. Start doing some kind of physical exercise do 30 to 40 minutes 4to 5 times in a week. Doing mindfulness meditation for 10 minutes to begin with would help you build resilience that will help you manage your stress in a much better way. Engage yourself in some activities yiu engage and focus more on building tomorrow than feeling guilty about yesterday. If you feel. That you need initial support to stop negative thought chain and begin positive change in your life feel free to contact me. As a psychologist I will work with you and provide you that initial support system till you once again become confident and independent. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear doctors, good morning. Do we have to keep our mind always relaxed and calm and happy?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear user. I can understand. Stress is part of life and stress makes you to perform better. But such stress never be continuous. In that case, calmness is more essential for your body to maintain the metabolism. Therefore, you should learn to be calm and relaxed whenever possible. But in modern day, due to the different types of stress, being calm and relaxed, in itself is a Himalayan task. Meditation, breathing, physical exercises, outdoor games etc helps. Take care.

Sir my friend has lack of concentration problem he is not able to stable his mind. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your friend must be under some kind of stress which he may not be aware of. As soon as he handles that stress his concentration and memory will happily return! For which he should ideally meet with a counselor. In the meantime let him do the following:Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that his 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. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he will get the best concentration and recall. 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that are too long to elaborate here but he can seek that from some courses. If his home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

I have been two days smoking 6 cigrate . After a two months and now I have a small chest and stomach pain. Is smoking a reason for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Could be but it is better for you to get yourself examined. Cessation of smoking is a must anyway and you should not wait for bad symptoms to appear before quitting. If you did that you may have developed a permanent condition and will have to resort to curative measures. If you quit now, you will be on a preventive mode and life will be a lot better.

I am having pain in calf in leg from last 2 years and now from last 1 year I am having pain in my hand and lower back also and now the pain turn into burning and numbness. Done all diagnosis but all are ok and not able to find out the cause of pain.

DNB, MBBS

Have you got your Vitamin D levels, serum uric acid, serum vitamin B12 levels and sugar done, if not they should be done too. Besides the pain in the leg may be due to a nerve compression in the back, that will have to be evaluated clinically and you may need an MRI of the spine if that is the case.

Sir, I am school student of 17 age. I am having a severe bipolar disorder. But I have not visited any doctor. I am a severe maladaptive daydreamer too. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You talk about this condition rather casually. It is very, very serious and the earlier it is resolved the better. Because you are young the prognosis is good. Apart from that this the last time you will get to sort it out in your teens. If done well now, you could save a lot of time, money, and pain. Meet with a doctor immediately. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.
