I m 19 years old. From last two years I m feeling my brain is not as sharp as before. I am forgetting things too quickly. Please Suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not clear why you feel so. ANy way for sharpening brain, there is no medicine and I can tell you these. Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it:) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory!’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory. 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i. E. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep!

You are going to feel isolated like this for some time as one always keeps comparing delhi with bombay. Once you realise that apples cant be compared with oranges, your issue would start resolving. Also in mumbai one has to take an initiative in introducing ourselves to people and then you would surely get the returns.

Dear Hamjad, You need to be assessed psychologically for diagnosis. You should consult a psychologist / psychiatrist for diagnosis. Alternatively you may consult a psychologist online too. Please do not try to diagnose self and ask for medicines. That may be dangerous. Take care.

You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

ADHD

CCT, FRCPCH , MRCPCH, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
What is Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder?

Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral disorder that affects 3-5 percent of all American children. It interferes with a person's ability to stay on a task and to exercise age-appropriate inhibition (cognitive alone or both cognitive and behavioral). Some of the warning signs of ADHD include failure to listen to instructions, inability to organize oneself and school work, fidgeting with hands and feet, talking too much, leaving projects, chores and homework unfinished, and having trouble paying attention to and responding to details. ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood, although the condition can continue into the adult years.

How common is ADHD?
• ADHD is very common. On average, it affects 5% of school-aged children around the world, or about one in every 20 children. This means that in many countries, there may be one or two children with ADHD in every classroom.

How do we diagnose ADHD?
A child's teacher may be the first person to suspect that a child has ADHD, especially if he is hyperactive and often disrupts class. However, parents may notice signs of ADHD before the child begins school, such as problems with social skills and disruptive behaviour. Alternatively, parents may realize that their child is having problems if she does poorly at school. If you or your child’s teacher suspects your child might have ADHD, your child should be assessed by a doctor.
A doctor will consider ADHD when they see a child who:
• is failing at school
• disrupts class
• cannot sit still or is hyperactive
• acts without thinking
• does not pay attention or does not seem to listen
• cannot concentrate
• daydreams
• has problems with friendships and other social relationships
• has low self-esteem

What happens if you do not diagnose or treat the ADHD?
• School failure
• Depression and anxiety
• Problems with relationships
• Substance abuse
• Delinquency
• Risk for accidental injuries
• Job failure

Children with ADHD are at higher risk for:
• Epilepsy
• Other behaviral problems
• Tics
• Autistic spectrum disorder

Is there any treatment?

The usual course of treatment may include medications, which are stimulants that decrease impulsivity and hyperactivity and increase attention. Most experts agree that treatment for ADHD should address multiple aspects of the individual's functioning and should not be limited to the use of medications alone. Treatment should include structured classroom management, parent education (to address discipline and limit-setting), and tutoring and/or behavioral therapy for the child.
What is the prognosis?

Children with the disorder seldom outgrow it; however, some may find adaptive ways to accommodate the ADHD as they mature.

I want to leave smoking. What can I do for this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
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. 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 chewing gum or 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.

I am a Marketing professional. Most of the time I am very calm and normal. When I see some wrong things I becoming violent and once I become angry I loose my control and speak whatever it comes and do whatever it may be and this status will be last not more than 10 minutes. Kindly suggest some treatments and some medicines for it.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Being otherwise calm and but at times having an uncontrolled anger outburst for few minutes that you later regret, is suggestive of either a personality problem, impulse control disorder or underlying agitated depression. These are just possibilities which can be evaluated and managed accordingly by consulting a psychiatrist. At times unresolved mental stress may also lead to such symptoms'i would therefore suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. Try mental relaxation exercises like deep breathing for 15-20 minutes, yoga or meditation etc.

Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Anxiety-induced Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a condition that causes a lot of stress, especially as you age. In order to know more, you should understand premature ejaculation well. It is a condition wherein one ejaculates before or immediately after sexual penetration, with little or no sexual stimulation. This leads to poor sexual performance and anxiety issues.

Causes:

There is no specific cause for premature ejaculation. Regular issues such as sex with a new partner of having sex after a long time might trigger this condition. Factors such as anxiety, stress and guilt may also result in premature ejaculation. It may also be caused by medical issues such as an injury to the genitals or other hormonal problems.

In this article, the factor that will be focused on is anxiety that most often leads to premature ejaculation. Being anxious or nervous about one’s sexual performance can result in this condition. Your mind may be preoccupied with whether your partner is enjoying the entire experience or about the proper functioning of the genitals. Both these factors bring about anxious thoughts and thus, may make one unable to control his ejaculation. One ultimately stops focusing on the entire experience and starts to overthink.

How to Control Anxiety Before and During Intercourse:

  1. Go Again: If it happens the first time, then shoot again. Try another round and you may find that you are able to control your ejaculation better.

  2. Be honest about it: Being honest about the entire situation will reduce anxiety about the performance. Your partner may be understanding and would process the situation better. Thus, with subsequent sexual encounters, you are sure to get better.

  3. Take matters in your own hands: If the partner is aware of all the limitations, one can use other methods such as oral sex or other foreplay methods (read fingering and fisting) to satisfy her.

  4. Decide if You Need More or Less Foreplay: For some guys with PE, foreplay increases anxiety, because they become more and more anxious as they wait for the event. For others, foreplay decreases anxiety, because it gives them a chance to relax before the event takes place. Find out what helps you and talk to your partner about it

If none of the above mentioned methods seem to work, you can fall back on medications.

Certain medications such as antidepressants are used in the treatment of premature ejaculation. They use a two pronged approach; on one hand they reduce anxiety and on the other, this very trait leads to delayed ejaculation, which in turn helps remedy the situation.

Controlling Premature Ejaculation:

PE can hit you at any age. But the good news is that when your PE is caused by anxiety, it’s something you can also reduce by using the tips above to help control your anxiety and get used to the lovemaking experience. You will need an understanding partner, but most partners are understanding when they care about you, and eventually you’ll be able to fully unlock the sexual prowess inside you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, I am suffering from extreme depression from last one year. I failed in exams, as a result. I tried to overcome on my own but now it is becoming worse. I cant concentrate on studies, cant enjoy things, my brain always is in worry & always tensed, dont know when I smiled last tym, a temporary relief I get is only when I go out with friends but after reaching home again I forget to smile or if I go to gym. Every morning I cant wake up early. I always feel tired and my mind tensed. And what is even worse is my allergy. Every morning I get up with running nose and countless sneezes. Dust and particle allergy is to blame. Can I beat this stress with medicines, are medicines effective in depression, I wanna feel light and active and ofcourse happy like when I was in college?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The allergy is a sign of grief, and so is the depression. It is good that you have identified what activities help you and what do not. Now I recommend that you meet with a counselor soon and talk to the person about all these problems. You will be guided well, and you will also need to know about emotions and how to deal with them. It is good you like the company of your friends and can therefore keep in touch with them often and for long durations. In other words, do everything possible in your spare time to be with people. If you are staying with your family, then the other times can be spent with them until you have to sleep. Do not sleep beyond 6.30 am, every day. Get into a healthy routine of exercise, good diet, and proper sleep habits, soon. Exercise is really good for a lot of reasons but primarily because the aerobic exercise stimulates the brain to product natural antidepressants. The allergy too will disappear over time. There is some sadness from your past that is the culprit. Can you identify it? if not, the counselor will help you. The sadness will naturally precipitate a lot of tears. That too you must do with someone, never alone. Be committed to the therapy. If the counselor thinks that you need medical intervention, that person will surely send you to a doctor for psychiatric consultation.

Dear I don't think you need to get alarmed about this. You are just 20. There is no way you get problems related amnesia. Busy people do forget things. People with lot of work do forget many things. Executives employ personal assitants mainly because they are busy. Therefore, there is nothing to worry. If you want to address your education issue, there are many techniques to remember things. Effective learning methods will help you. To keep your memory intact, you should keep yourself active and agile. Polish your brain frequently. Take care.

Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.

I am 19 years old male. It's been a year I am smoking. However I have stopped smoking completely now. But I face difficulty to breathe, i. E I face prolonged nasal congestion (which gets totally cleared sometimes). I can't smell efficiently as before. I have heard that our body cures itself and so I might recover. But what steps should I take?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is very unlikely that that little smoking could have caused this kind of effect. Since it is a nasal problem I suggest you meet with an ent specialist and determine what exactly this blockage is all about and get it treated soon. It may or may not have anything to do with the effects of tobacco consumption. The body does heal itself but if the contagion far exceeds its resources, you must seek alternative remedial measures to help the body deal with it with some help. As for steps to be taken: all exercises that tax your respiratory systems are very good for you i. E. Aerobic exercises. Yoga and meditation will also do very well. By itself breathing difficulty may have a lot to do with unexpressed feelings particularly sadness and fear. Meet with a counselor to deal with these emotions to support your recovery from this angle.

Hi there ~ maintaining a good sleep schedule may be helpful. There are some rules for sleep hygiene that will help with getting over the fact that your girlfriend is getting married and that you are heartbroken and this is just a passing phase. Do not linger in this" shit" if she has moved on you should too. Do not use over the counter medications or substances like alcohol to help you sleep. I will help with medication if you need to get over this passing phase.
